Yanks Smash Japs In Arawe Battle Continued from Page 1 Guinea's Huon peninsula, some 90 miles southwest of Arawe, had forced the Sanga River and were engaging the Japanese on the north bank after capturing Lakona, 15 miles north of Flnschhafen. Patrols Fan Out , Patrols fanned out over a network of native traiLs, the most important of which runs 40 miles across the rugged backbone of New Britain to Rein Bay, one of the main transshipment points on the barge line from New Guinea to Rabaul. Lightning and Thunderbolt fighters provided a protective cover over the invasion army and beat oil spasmodic Japanese air attacks designed to disrupt preparations for an advance. Nine Japenese bombers and five fighters were shot down and three others probably destroyed without American loss Thursday, the second day of the invasion.

Australian forces neared the end of the first phase of their push up the coat of New Guinea's Huon Peninsula with the occupation of Lakona, 15 miles above Finschhafen and four and one-half miles northwest of Bonga. Occupation of Ladkona secured the western gatepost of Vitiaz Strait even as the capture of Arawe threatened it from the east. The Australians, aided bv Matilda tanks, drove the enemy into the Sanga River above Lakona, killing scores with artillery and machinegun fire.

Finds Many Child Delinquents Belong lo Clubs A substantial number of Juvenile delinquents are or were members of clubs or various other organizations, according to Victor L. Anfuso, chairman of the Italian Board of Guardians. Advocating "Individual, scientific treatment" of delinquent cases in an address last night in Claridge Hall, 13 Palmetto St., at a meeting called to form an organization of representatives of racial, nationalistic and religious groups to work in the Eastern section of Brooklyn, Anfuso declared: "It is fair for me to tell you that a large percentage of delinquents belonged to settlement houses or such clubs as the Boy Scouts of America. "All of which raises the very serious question of whether or not de-linquert careers can be headed off without establishing individual social case work relationships with the families." Says Surveys Support View He said surveys undertaken by social research groups have proved his contention, but the only survey he mentioned was one by the Institute of Human Relationships at Yale University, which, he said, found 92 percent of delinquency traceable to emotional disturbances. The other 8 percent, he said, was found to result from influence of crmpanionshlp in hish delinquency areas and low ethical standards of family life. "Society has fought the problem with a system of courts, prosecuting authorities, police, penal institutions and probation." he said. "But you can't solve the problem that way. In every neighborhood there should be a community organization to co-operate with the schools, the police and private sources to ferret out delinquent boys and girls and then have the proper agencies modify the facets which have produced delinquent tendencies." Roosevelt Reveals Plot to Kill 'Big 3' Continued from Pace 1 Russian compound, where Churchill made his residence. Stalin Pleaded With F. D. R. That night Stalin informed the President the Russians had found evidence of a German plot to destroy the leaders and pleaded the President used that word with the Chief Executive to move at once to I ttle safer confines of the Russian i.moassy. The Soviet quarters were regarded as the safest place in Teheran because they were situated in a walled compound. The British diplomatic establishment was next door and all Churchill had to do to Join Stalin was to step through an opening in the wall. The President accepted Stalin's Invitation next morning, spending only one night at the American Legation. He remained there until The end of his four-day visit in Teheran, safe behind the staunch walls of the Russian compound. Mr. Roosevelt told his news conference frankly that he did not take much stock in the plot. Members of his party did, however, and they were openly relieved to be back again on American soil. Aside from the plot which seemed to worry him little. Mr. Roosevelt said his talks with Churchill, Stalin and Chinese Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek were eminently successful. He seemed pleased with Stalin as a personality, saying both he and the Russian leader were alike in that they were both realists. He said his Inability to speak either Russian or Chinese was no bar to facile conversation with Stalin and Chiang through interpreters.

Couple Die in Train Crash An Elmhurst couple who went to Florida to get away from the spectre of death after a fatal sect-dent to their son, found death themselves in the crash of the Tamiaml East Coast Champion with a streamliner near Lumberton, N. C. Mr. and Mrs. George Speldel of 40-28 78th St., both 68, had encountered tragedy before when their son, Elmer, died last month as a result of a 1 skull fracture received when he slipped on the street. Brokenhearted, they planned to go away and visit a daughter, Mrs. Wil-lette Sllkey in Miami. Both were killed in the wreck while returning to New York to spend Christmas with a second daughter, Mrs. Georgia Williams of Elmhurst. A son, Carol Speidel of Bayside. also survives. His father was a retired electrical worker. 3 Local Soldiers Die The War Department made public today the names of three Brooklyn and Queens army men who were killed in the crash. They are Pfc. Clifford O. Kalab of 90-33 184th St., Hollis: David Bloom of 3115 Brighton 4th St. and Pvt. James F. Cooney. Hamilton Beach. Among the injured was Corp. William H.

Just back from a shakedown cruise on a destroyer es Berlin Still Ablaze 2 Days After RAF Raid London, Dec. 18 (U.R) The glare of fires set by British bombers Thursday night still lighted the Winter sky above Berlin today, neutral reports said. The Royal Air Force bombing fleets were idle last night, presumably because of bad weather, after blasting the Reich capital with 1.500 tons of explosives. Travelers from Berlin arriving at Malmoe, Sweden, said the center and eastern sections of Berlin particularly were hard hit by the assault and that interurban traffic was paralyzed. Algiers Catches Humphrey Bogart Without His Gun Allied Headquarters. Algiers, Dec. 18 (U.R) Film badman Humphrey Bogart got caught In Algiers without his gat today and sorely in need of his mob. Bogart came to North Africa with the best of intentions to entertain the troops during a 12-week tour of army rest camps but his reputation as a screen killer preceded him. An Arab street urchin proclaimed htm as "you blankety blank gangster." A French waitress Insulted his wife in a mlxup over the language, and the U. S. Army lost all his baggage. "I need the entire mob to straighten all this out," Bogart snarled, "and I didn't even bring my gun, figured it would be like bringing coals to Newcastle." Bogart arrived with his wife, former film actress Mayo Methot, and USO veterans Don Cumming and Ralph Mark. Bogart feared that because his trunk bears the painted words "Humphrey Bogart, Seaman 2d Class," lt may have been turned over to the navy. Bogart waa a first-class seaman in the last war. When he tried to inject some home-made gags in a show on a naval vessel recently, he was "demoted." may be a distasteful one because the fight against crime is a losing one in that section. However, like all good soldiers, McDermott will go where he is ordered."' McDermott was in charge of detectives in Brooklyn for two years until May 24. 1940. On that date he was transferred to assume similar duties on Staten Island, known in police circles as "Siberia." and Inspector William T. Reynolds took over the Brooklyn command. It Is understood that Reynolds, deputy chief inspector in charge of the Brooklyn Squad East, will retain his post. At the time of McDermott's "exile." Police Commissioner Valentine admitted discussing it with District Attorney O'Dwyer, who. as a county Judge, severely rebuked McDermott in January, 1939, for alleged "snooping" in his courtroom. O'Dwyer. however, later retracted his verbal blast when an investigation proved that McDermott had been acting tinder orders. The competency of McDermott was not questioned.
