Japs May Keep Navy Hidden Until Home Land Is Endangered (By United Press) The Japanese Fleet apparently means to avoid a showdown fight until the Japanese home" Islands themselves are thrcaumed. Military observers believe this is the reason that not a single Jap combat ship sailed out from the sea Friday to challenge the powerful American armada which delivered a crushing attack against Mindanao in the southern Philippines. So weak were the enemy defenses—that Admiral Halsey's ships and planes knocked out 91 Jap vessels and f>8 planes with only very light losses. Strategists now believe that Extended Forecast The temperature in New England during the next four day's will average from two to six degrees below'the seasonal normal. *** The normal temperature for this period in Boston and Now Haven, Conn., is C-l degree's. In Nnntucket, Massachusetts, 63 degrees. In Burlington, Ccrmont, 01 degrees. In Concord, New Hampshire and Portland, Maine, UO degrees. And in Maine, 5G degrees. rj.-Hnfall will average .from one- fourth to two-thirds' inch in the northern parts of Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont and more than two-thirds inch elsewhere, oc- curing as Kcneml rains tomorrow find tomorrow night, Japan's fleet will remain hidden; in the. protecting waters of the homeland—until an invasion of, Japan herself is threatened.

While the enemy still wns reel- Ing from this terrific assault—Gen. MacArthur sent his bombers out over 'Zamboanga harbor, on the southwestern end of Mimlnnoa. Saturday night. They scored direct hits on two seven thousand ton cargo ships. And the Tokyo radio reports that 400 planes' raided Davao and Caga- yan on the west shore of Mindanao Saturday. The Japanese, reported that 180 planes returned to both towns on Sunday. Most experts believe Mindanao probably will be the target of the first Yank invasion forces whenever they m.iy strikfi. Alcanwhile at the other end of the Japanese empire—in the Indian ocean—the British radio reports RAF bombers have struck heavy blows at a Japanese convoy. The report says a Japanese force of Merchantmen and escort vessels was attacked by long- New Havn Men Charged With Theft Of Gas Coupons Derby.

Sofia, Bulgaria, Is City Of Bomb- Blasted Buildings Sofia, Bulgaria, Sept. 12—(UP)— Sofia—the capital of shaky Bui garia—is a city ot 'bomb-blastc buildings and uneasy fearful peo pie. That's -what United Press Cor respondent Leon Kay writes. Kay was one of the last Allied corrc spondents to leave the Balkans ahead of (Sie Germans in 1941, and he's the first American to reach Sofia now. The UP-man reports that 75 per cent of the central district of the Bulgnr capital lies in ruins from the Allied blastings whicli helped sush Bulgaria out of the war. And that—although Kay doesn't mention any specific buildings—may well include the famous cathedra) erected by Czar Alexander the Second of Russia after Russia Jib- crated Bulgaria from Turkey in .878. In getting to Sofia, the war cor- espondent had to make a detour o avoid a baUIe between ia.n and German troops near the Greek frontier, 'The battle started when the Nazis tried to free a I large number of interned Germans, in a prison camp. At the same' time, in the northeast lip of Bulgaria Russian troops are moving in and disarming Bulgarian forces. The people of Sofia, like their troops in the field, Kay reports, are confused. The UP-man says, "I gained the impression that the residents of Sofia are holding their breath, waiting for their future to be decided at the Cairo parleys."

Dr. Baker states that Naugatuck has a very excellent garbage collection system, with its only difficulty being the present war-time shortage of help, thru, handicaps its service to some degree.

Dr. Baker also suggested today that Naugatuck householders can aid in expediting tlie garbage collection by insuring that containers used for garbage are kept clean ;md as sanitary as possible. The health officer suggests that these containers be washed in boilins: water, conuiining any type of washing fluid, and if this procedure is followed .regularly, it will be a great aid to the garbage collector, Frank Wilkas of Shattuck j road.
