No planes were lost in either of the operations. . Overtax Ouster Discussed The growing success of the Al. Lied · bombing offensive was reported by the Daily Sketch to have led the German high command to demand the ouster of Reichsmarshal Hermann Goering as chief ot Germany's once-vaunted Luftwaffe. The demand was discussed at a recent meeting of the high command with Hitler, the Sketch said, with the military men seeking the appointment of Field Marshal Albert Kesselring to the air command on grounds that Goering had failed to outbuild the Allies or ^develop sufficiently . trained pilots despite the resources at run command. The Sketch indicated that no final decision was reached. .. A decline In the scale of the Anglo-American offensive over the week-end was attributed to cloudf and fog over the continent that-:n many cases prevented bombardier? from sighting their targets. As a result, unoficial sources estimated, only 300 tons of bombs were dropped in raids Saturday, Saturday night and Sunday night, but even this was sufficient to boost the total for the nine-day defensive to approximately 7,800 tons, a record for such a period. Only a small force of RAF bombers was sent over north and west Germany Saturday night and lome of the American Flying Fortresses dispatched against France in day- tight Saturday were compelled to return to their bases without even reaching their targets because of weather conditions. 12,000 Ton* In Month With three nights remaining, British bombers have dropped 12,000 tons of bombs on the Ruhr valley alone this month, while the onnage since the "Battle of the Ruhr" began with the big raid on Essen March 5.tops 25,000. Already over the "hump" In its campaign to paralyze the Ruhr-an area approximately 30 by 2:i miles--the RAF will find the lecond half of its offensive easier han the initial assaults, observers said. ' The present stage of the aerial attack was likened to a ground battle in which the hard core of resistance has been broken with only various pockets to be cleaned out. Once these have been reduced, and this may be accomplished by fall, one third to two fifths of Germany's heavy industry, -including some of the biggest plants in Hitler's arsenal, will be paralyzed. The RAF bomber command now has dealt shattering blows to every Ruhr town of more than 100,000 population except Muchen-Gladback. Many smaller towns also have been attacked as diversions during raids on larger objectives and the remaining potential objectives altogether hardly represent more than 400,000 population. ____ - ____----------------~--~--~--~* Picturesque Messina Is Allied Bomb Target ...._.,,, ,, ., ..aiuni......^!! «a**raxf~-*»!f*'Ht!S~.T J?T3r«-ajEST nr ?.?1 "Z?« *{ \7%?~~ One ot the most-bombed ports In Sicily is Messina, the city just across the straits, from the southern tip of Italy, whose hill* are seen in background.

His strength lies in a big na- tipnal following. Observers who were counting him among the politically deceased as recently as six months ago will concede now that he is the livest corpse on record and may repeat next year at the Republican national convention. He has stirred the imagination of a great many of his fellow citizen's. The almost unprecedented sales of his book, "Orre World," written after last year's round-the- world flight, is proof enough of that--and the politicians have made note of that fact. Must Speak on Domestic Issues . Many strategists believe Willkia has weakened his own position by failing to take the leadership of httack on Mr. Roosevelt's domestic policies. It is fairly certain that he will not be nominated next year unless he does speak out shortly, and frequently, in adverse criticism of the way things are going on the home front. Unlike Willkie, Dewey would be satisfactory to most organization Republicans ared, furthermore, he has a considerable national following in his own right. Washington did not miss the significance of reports from last week's governors' conference at Columbus, O., that Dewey \yas the only governor at whom 'the office workers, stenographers and such wanted to look. Some of the girls explained that the smiling young man from New York had "political sex appeal." That is just what the Republicans have been looking ET suvce Mr. Roosevelt licked them in 1932. DEWEY, LEHMAN SEND GREETINGS TO JEWISH LODGE CONVENTION Saratoga Springs, June 28-(UP)--Gov. Thomas E. Dewey,'in a special message to SOO delegates assembled for the 56th armuol convention of the independent order Brith Abraham, declared today that the United States must look to such organizations for aid in solving wartime and post-war problems. Dewey's message was similar in tone to onu from former Gov. Herbert H. Lehman, a member of the' order, who said he was 'certain the organization was working "to bring about a victorious peace" and that ."grave post-war problems" would be considered by the convention. For longer' life, a flashlight carried in an auto's glove compartment should be wrapped in a cloth to cushion shock.

For the second time 'in three days, a Soviet detachment drove forward in the Kholm sector northwest of Moscow, occupying an inhabited place and beating off six Nazi counterattacks, killlnn 400 Germans. A special ", announcement said the Soviet air force, kindled IS fires in a raid oh the Orel railway junction and touched off fires and explosions in Luftwaffe airfields. Several Nazi troop trains ' Russian planc ' The midnight communique said the Nazis lost 211 German airplanes last week, plus additional large numbers" destroyed on German airdromes by bomber attack. Soviet losses were- set at 74. Three Nazi planes 'were shot down yesterday near Rostov, Soviet planes sank a -U-boat in the Black sea. DAVIS MAY HAVE LAID FOUNDATION FORPOSMERA (Continued from Page One) Many months will be needed to prepare bases and' airdrome* and other facilities for the vast forces needed to defeat Japan. Evidence at such long-range preparations are apparent in the shifting of Field Marshal Sir Archibald Wavell to viceroy of India and the imminent appointment of a supreme Allied commander for that theater. There long 'have been two highly contradictory school* of thought regarding Russia and Japan. One holds _ the Russians won't be interested in taking on a Pacific war because the Soviet will find its tasks of reconstruction in Europe too important.
