Meanwhile, Moscow dispatches say Britain based American heavy bombers have landed in .Russia after attacking a German plane factory at Rahmnl. near the Bultie port of Gdynia. The attack is said to have taken'place yesterday, with all of the bombers landing safely at their bases in the Soviet union. Crew- members are quoted as saying tho target area was well covered with bombs. American air action appears to have developed over Europe again today, but so far there's no olll- cial "report of new assaults. Britain based bombers headed for the continent and the Germans said that other bomber formations, presumably from Italy, were over southern Germany and Hungary. Incidentally, Italy based lighters have returned to their airfields from the second shuttle mission to Russia. And as the shuttle f'.icrs landed.

The most vicious battles of the Scwiul summer offensive are reported to be raging on the approaches to East Prussia, Warsaw, and Krakow in southern Poland. The Germans- have hurled big reserves of tanks, infantry and aircraft into a do-or-die battle before Kast Prussia. The fierce fighting has slowed Russian gains from miles to hundreds of yards. Soviet dispatches say the path of, advance is littered with German dead, wrecked enemy the battle in the cast and .suburbs of the city. west limits, and the rubble of bombed villages.

Construction of a fire escape on the rear of the building, installation of a live-foot exit at the south side of the stage und installation of four sets ot self-closing fire doors in the stairwell of the front stairway leading to the auditiorium and balcony are the main changes required by Commissioner Hickcy. Tho front stairway should be entirely inclosed with wire glass partitions and the fire doors would cut off smoke and fire hazard,. Mr. Hickcy said. One door on each of the t. wo landings from the main cnlra'ncc to the town hall to the theater proper were suggested. Exactly where the other two doors will be located has not been revealed.

This is cut off in very small part by walls, partitions or ceilings and the so-called flue extends up and over the celling of the auditorium and balcony, com- in gout over the singe "with practically no attempt to properly flrc- slop the exposures, and running to a wood-sheathed partition over the proscenium arch, with a two foot, by six toot door opening into the space above the stage." • The state police commissioner recommenced that the owner of the properly hire an architectural .engineer to make an exhaustive study of the town hall to determine its condition and to ascertain the carrying capacity of the timbers of the roof construction, especially as it relates to that portion over and above the proscenium arch, "where it appears that considerable weight is concentrated ' The electrical work in the town hall is not up to standard, Commissioner Hickcy stated. An old-type panel board is used on the stage at the south side, and he recommended that the electrical work in the entire building be checked by a competent electrical contractor and brought up to the standards required by the National Board of Fire Underwriters for a building of that type. Provision must be m.idc, Com- missooncr Hickey said, to cut o!T the stage at the ceiling level with a two-hour flre test material, so as to entirely Isolate anything above the grid line. The wooden partition forming a well above the proscen- wia door opening into the space above the auditorium, should be removed, he adds, and material of a one-hour fire test placed on that wall. 'Consideration should be given to providing <a. fircproofed curtain lo cover' the proscenium, to be operated by fusahle Jrnkjs and by hand," hjs recommendations stale. He .vii'd the ex.il at the bottom of tho proposed fire escape should be c)oi=c to the cost side of iho building so th-at it could not possibly be blocked by automobiles. Proper panic bolts should be provided anxi wire gla^s placed in windows that would offer exposure 10 this fire es«ipc. This work would necessitate removal of the jrescnt drcjjrjng rooms .it the south side of the stage, he ts.iid. The balcony at the present, time 'is a very serious fire hazard rom the standpoint of the safety of the occupants," the official said ind addud, "I turn firmly of the opinion that nothing less than jJic •ecommoncied changes would ca.usc this lo be reasonably safe." He ordered removal of the present showcase and soft drink stand rom their present location i'n, the obby of the theater as these definitely constitute a hazard in their K-escnt position, he said. I-mme- intc removal of the drapes at the ront of the balcony is ordered and f other drapes are to remain on he windows, they should be fireproofed, he said, adding. "I would •ecommmend their removal cntirc- y." Mr. Hickey stated the walls of he building a.rc in a good state of •cpair and have been maintained n good condition. Other recommendations include: Pkistering of he ceiling of the boiler room; re- rioval of the gas" plate used i:i the anitor's ' storeroom a.nd placing f proper protection around gcrm- cide .aired- floor fi-lle stored in this oom, keeping them away from woodwork; repair of a patch of plaster about five by five feet in he basement ceiling of the hallway outside the lavatory of the civilian defense rooms; removal of he overhanging of tread at the north exit to the fire escape; rc- iioval of all lumber and miscel- HIVOOUS material mot in use i-n back if the stage; and removal _of seats tored under the stage. The risers and trends of the tail-ways are in reasonably good ondition, Mr. Hickcy said, with he exception of the rear stairway cading from the main auditorium where the risers are eight inches r more in- height. This is a par- iciilarly steep stair, he commenC- d. Consideration of partitions of wo-hour fire test material and a loor of one hour firc^ test mator- al at the bottom of tha stairway nd cutting off '3.11 mo-ins of con- act with the main first floor are irged.
