North of the stricken towns, the river is falling, and the weather bureau her forecast clear or clearing weather for the immediate future after four days of torrential rains. State, federal authorities and the After Six Months Of War . Eight Questions Unanswered By VANCE PACKARD . Associated Press Staff Writer fjEOPLE had talked of it for years. But when it began in the gray 1 haze of September's dawn, half a year ago, many persons were surprised. They didn't think Herr Hitler's plans included actual war. The end of the peace came when Hitler insisted he could help himself to Danzig and part of couldn't. He signed a nonaggres - sion pact witn his former outer enemy, Stulin of Russia, but the Allies still said no. So he wrote letters full or threats and sweet reasons bleneas. France's Premier iJaladier ex - ' claimed: "What a torrent!" Thereupon Hitler named Hermann Goer - 1 Sheriff Duty Honored As 'Leap Year Babies9 K3" Tift L ! sL J. - mam nare Dirinaays .

If all of them fared as well as Sheriff Duty. then happiness reigned indeed. Another feature of the rare occasion was the birtti of a son today to Mr. and Mrs. Roy Richards of 137 Thompson place. Surprised with their Leap year baby, they hadn't decided on a name at this writing. The mother and child are in City hospital. Sheriff Duty's deputies surprised him with a birthday cake bearing 11 candles, then sang "Happy birthday to you, Michael." and presented him with a humidor and piperack and a couple of briars. Sheriff Duty, beaming with pleasure, was asked to make a speech, but replied: "You can't expect a speech from a 12 - year - old!" The sheriff was exercising the license of all "Leap year babies' to count their age by birthdays. Another surprise was a gold sheriffs badge, presented' by the sheriffs mother. Mr. Duty's parents are Mr, and Mrs. Dan Duty of Wellsville. As a matter of fact. Sheriff Duty is SI years of age. and the least bit of figuring will show he's had the equivalent of 13 birthdays, but be skipped a birthday in t00, as Leap yetr day is dropped at the turns of centuriea not divisible by 400 to keep the calendar and tbe sun syn - chronifed. Others who received greetings were Gerald Matthews. 16. son of Mr. and Mrs. Howard Matthews of Maplewood.'Snd Janet Loufoe Cra - ble, daughter of Mrs. Irwin Crable of Pleasant Heights.

The program of supporting legislation for social reform now being followed by the American Federa - tion of labor, Mr. Cairns declared, aids every working person In tbe country, but cannot be accomplished without the support of organised labor. Mr. Cairns was introduced by James M. Duffy, president of tbe Nstionsl Brotherhood of Operative Potters, who was toastmaster during the program which followed the anniversary dinner attended by 200 in the parish house of St. Stephen's Episcopal church. Other speakers were Michael J Lyden of Youngs town, president of Russians Press Attempts To Encircle And Seize Vital Seaport Of Viipuri By Th Associated PrcM. HELSINKI, Feb. 2 The Finnish army's new positions between the bay of Viipuri and the Vuoksi river, on the bard - fought Karelian isthmus, are being subjected to "ooQtinued enemy pressure," the Finnish high command announced today. The Russian invaders appear to be trying at all costs to press their newly - gained advantage in efforts to encircle and capture Viipuri. strategic port of the region and Finland's third largest city. Russian forces also attacked at the other or eastern end of the isthmus front in "great torce" at Taipale, according to the high command's communique which covered yesterday's action. The communique was unusually brief. Planes Seen Over Helsinki Russian planes meanwhile were sighted over Helsinki today. The capital was subjected to three air alarms up to midafternoon. The Russians lost "heavily in men in the attacks along the Bay of Viipuri and tbe Finns also destroyed 14 tanks, tbe communique said, while on the eastern front, northeast of Lake Ladoga, four tanks and one armored car were destroyed. The high command said the Finus had captured a "few enemy strong points" at Kuhmo. on the eastern front below Finland's "wasp .waist," while in the far north, in the Petsamo, "fighting continues at the Nautsi river." Four Russian planes were reported definitely to have been shot down two days ago. Reds Claim Foe Retreats Today's first air alarm in Helsinki was precipitated by the appearance of six planes. Anti - aircraft fire drove them away. Finnish forces continued to - treat after futile counter - attacks that cost them heavy losses, said the Soviet communique. Forty - two more Finnish defensive fortifications were taken yes terday, with full data not yet avail able, the communique . said, , and added:' .

No Importsnt Changes' The Kamara mentioned is a high way junction five miles north of a railroad ststion of the ssme name which the Russians previously nsa renorted canturlng. On other fronts, the communique said there were "no important rhanree." while bad weather re stricted the air force to reconnoit - ering flights. (Counlin of the Russian and Finnish reports indicates that the Russian gains are in a broad .spear head, bordered on the east by the stream - like Vuoksi and on the west by the Gulf of Finland, with the point nearly touching the ruins of Viipuri.) $75,000 LIMIT RULED ON COUNTY AID BONDS Special T Tb Rtiw.

WASHINGTON, Feb. 2 The senate completed congressional ac tion today on a bill to increase capital of the Export - Import bank, making possible additional loans to Finland and China. Tbe measure, which would double the existing $100,000,000 capital of the Export - Import bank, bow goes to the White House. The senate, which had passed the bill several days ago, today ac cepted bouse amendments permit ting vse of loan fund tor financing ; commercial alrplana purchases and forbidding extension of loans to pa tions in default on war debts. Speeded To White House After the senate gave its final ap proval. Democratic Leader Bark ley obtained consent for the vice presi dent to sign the measure during a senate recess or adjournment. That made it possible for the measure to go to tbe White House more quickly. President Roosevelt's signature is assured. The last big congressional hurdle in tbe path of tbe loan was cleared yesterday when the house approved, 168 to fil, the senate bill. The amendments which the house inserted forbid loans by the bank to countries in default of their war debts and permit Finland to buy commercial aircraft, as distin guished from military planes. Torn between sympathy for the Finns and fear of the United States becoming involved in Europe's wars, the house shied away from record note, and the action was taken on a rising ballot. Caution Is Urged Opposition came both from those who advocated a forthright move to lend money directly to the Baltic republic and those who feared that any type of loan would jeopardize American neutrality. Arguing against proposals to direct the bank specifically to make a loan to Finland. Rep. Luce (R) of Massachusetts urged caution to guard against any step which might drag the United States into the war. On the other hand, Rep. DingHl (D of Michigan shouted, "To hell with Stalin, to hell with Hitler." in denouncing the restrictions in the bill. PATTERSON, FOGO WIN ELECTION JOBS AGAIN Robert M.
