The Swan, Electrical Co. report is divided into six separate parts, and indicates not only sonic of the changes that should be made but also covers economies that couid be effected by the elimination oC certain phases of the electrical setup as it now exists. It is indicated that the main swich board should be re-located, totally enclosed and provided \vith safety switches. On i.hc switch board for the stage and theater operation it is recommended that it should be brought up to date by replacement. Also thai stage lighting sections should be replaced as thye .ire defective. The survey shows that the majority of this repair thought can be eliminated untl discontinued by disconnecting- the present equipment.

The Enemy's Troops Are Facing Very Serious Double-Threat GERMANS ADMIT LOSS OF BREST, FRENCH PORT ON ATLANTIC American Seventh Army Draws Closer To Route To Southwestern Germany (By United forces are sweeping over Molland and Germany's Siegfried line soon may be outflanked. A United Press front line dispatch says Allied-air borne units- are in action beyond the Rhine river at Arnheim, near the Nazi frontier. That- means a double threat to the enemy first, by driving south, the ail-borne fighters could move in bchintl tho Siegfried defenses, turning them exactly as the Germans outflanked the Maginot line in 1940. Second, the paratroopers and giidcr borne doughboys could strike 30 miles east of. Arnhcim to t)5e German frontier. Although tight censorship cloaks the exact movement .of the air borne fighters, it's apparent that they are trying to Jiold iheii- LCV- ritory unlil the British second army can join them in its drive up from the south. Powerful reinforcements have been landed, and hard fighting is reported. One junction between the airborne troops and the BHtish already has been made farther south, and the -combined forces have captured the industrial city of Eindhoven, in southern Holland, Two towns four miles north and east, of Eindhoven also have been taken and patrols arc at a canal livo miles above the city. Front dispatches say ,thc hard hitting paratroopers are spreading panic and confusion through the German rear. And reporls from Allied headquarters raise the possibility that tho British second army will be able to sweep into Germany's industrial Ruhr in much the same speed that carried the American third army across Continued on l j agc 3) Naugatuck Soldier In Ordnance Company On New Caledonia Soldier Awarded Good Conduct Medal Corporal Henry Adamson of the United States Army, who is stationed at Greenwood.
