Local .supernumerary policemen ure rcRtirdcd, it was Indicated as part time workers and do not benefit in regard to vacation, bonuses or paid days off. One local supernumerary has been working a full week of SC hours for four full months and his status was the subject of the debate last nlfrht Burscsses .1.

An enemy broadcast ways United States troops have arrived on the Hunan fi'onl of southern China. However, there is no indication whether the troops f\re Infantry, or personnel for American airdromes. Another report says Australian soldiers are replacing some of the Americans on Guam because of what the Japanese claim as heavy American losses. Amid a variety of enemy reports, ' the Japanese also announce the successor to Admiral Shimadn. former chief of the Japanese naval general staff who was the Ilrst ' member of Tojo cabinet to resign. His successor is Admiral Okawa, a naval ministry official. Meantime, Allied communiques onnounce the American twin campaigns on Tinlan and Guam In the Marianas are nearlng completion. Tinlan already has fallen. But the Marines are busy mopping up the last Japanese pockets. And on Guam, the Americans have driven throe miles in thoir campaign to squeeze the Japanese into the northern tip of the island. Our forces on Guam now arc breaking out on a wide plateau— the best fighting ground they yet have encounrered.

Prime Minister Churchill provides the latest news on the American advance. Right now, says Churchill, the Americans may be approaching R o n n c s. halfway across the Brest penlnsult and one of the largest cities In Brittany. Churchill says the news of Allied progress in France Impresses him as "extremely good." He says the campaign ha.s cost the Germans about twice as many casualties as the Allies. And he explains the present strategy of the Allied forces as "gaining" space to deploy, which," says Churchill, "is necessary for armies the size we are using." The last report from Allied headquarters put the fnst-moving American armor in pontorson, a rail and road center barely 30 miles from Rennes. Their advance is threatening the main highways and railways linking Brittany with Paris, And ns on the Cherbourg peninsula, the big prize will bo a port really a triple prize on the Breton peninsula because .of Its valuable ports of Brest, Lorient and St. Malo. Brest was the chief American debarkation port in the last war. The victory may be even easier than at Cherbourg.

She has broken, diplomatic and com- .mcrclal relations with Germany. '•And her premier says flatly that t.he issue of pMiee or war depends on what 1 the Nazis do about It, •And little Finland 'ha.s 1 changed preHidonts — has put her strong man, Field Mannerhcim, it;, the head of state — in a. move .tha.t-bca.iw the earmarks, of a renl Finnish cffor.t to get out or the war. • In t'his setting, Prime Minister Churchill went before Commons t'llis morning and declared that the armies of Germany and Jarvin arc recoiling on every battlcfront a.11 over the world. Churchill's prediction of victory soon in the west was maxlc witli one of his typical double-negative phrases.

Warden Brophy was empowered to secure for a sum not to exceed $10.00 a section of land owned by Mrs, Pctroni Kasputis at Scott street and Andr_cw avenue, that will be used to round on" a corner there that makes for a hazardous trafllc condition. Approval was also given for the placing of a larger pipe in the Orchard terrace area, to take care of a flood water condition there. The 12-inch pipe Is expected to handle matters there nicely and =y a ^ong Banding troublesome terval between the defeat of Gcr- many and Japan will be shorter — perhaps, as Churchill put it "much shorter than supposed." I had at one time The British premier said Allied losses to submarines this year have been almost negligible in comparison with former ye»irs.. However, Churchill wnrn<xl that the Germans might resume their attacks, with faster submarines. And he declared "w c must be very careful not LO. relax either our support, or exertions in. order to turn our strength into other channels." As for the Pacific war, Churchill declared significn'ntly, the end of this year, the British . fleet Eastern waters will be greatly strengthened. And to show wh'at the Japs are up against, he said the United States Naval forces arrayed against the Japs, alrtady .-ire double the size .of the J;jp fleet. Churchill reviewed Oie supply ililTlculties that America and Brit- •u nhad to overcome before -they could i.-iunch the invasion in France. But once it was opened, he pointed out that in less than a month." wo had harbors in Normandy which make Dover look small. He called the Allied forces now _n France the best equipped army ever sent into battle. Churchill also paid high tribute to the Allied nrmies fighting in Italy. But, -he continued, in a .ypically earthy phrase: "It is the Russian army -who have done most of the work in tearing ihc'guts out situation. Burgess J. Rudolph Anderson inquired about the extension of Fern street, and Warden Brophy stated that the matter would be taken up next week with George Cassidy, owner of a lot that is blocking the street, upon his return from a business trip. Definite progress on the situation, is promised at that time the' warden stated. Warden Brophy indicated thnt Borough Engineer Charles Curtis is-working or. sewer profiles nnd plans for Cherry street extension, and Hillside avenue, but they have not as yet been completed.

Warden Brophy indicated thai, the matter would be looked into once. Burgess William Ploski asked Warden 1 Brophy a,bout the prog ress of flic sewage disposal pl.-in 1 at of Germany."

And he pointed out hat London probably would be the main target. So he advised those vho do not have war duties in jonclon to leave the capital.
