Meanwhile, Democratic United States senatorial candidate Erlen McMahon told Middlesex county town chairmen to enroll as voters the thousands of war workers who migrated to Connecticut during the past live years.

The new invasion was nppa'r- ently not opposed by, the Japs. The junt'le-touKhened leathernecks on Peleliu have jammed the remaining Japanese forces in u picket nnar the western shore. Three-fourths of the fiiimtically- ilghtinir enemy garrison—some 7,OUO troops—died in defense of the important base, • Farther south on Angaur, all enemy resistance has been wiped out.

Soldier Writes From War Front (Continued from Pago 1) that the passageway is under heavy artillery fi: '° so tllcu no rcal supply traffic can pass. But the British, in winning the bridge from I>.';jmegen over the Rhine-Waal are in position to move men and material in strength up to the line. The bridge was taken intact after severe fighting, fighting in which the Germans Cought to the last ditch before retreating. All available reinforcements were thrown in. Only a few narrow canals bar the way from Nijmegcn to Arn- hcm. On the basis of available front line dispatches it looks as though the Germans have little left, in the immediate area to stop the British and American thrust. United Press War Correspondent Richard D. McMillan, in a graphic dispatch from the front lines, says the battle began to swing in favor of the Allies yesterday after our forces hold in the face of terrific enemy charges. As he describes the situation now —"wo now wield a terrific punch all along the lino. Our tanks and guns are noso to nose at many points. It. has been a trial of terrific fighting, but we are wearing the enemy down and the gates of Germany are opening, before our eyes." As the Allies drove closer to Germany along the northern route, the American First Army to the south scored another penetration of Germany. The Yanks, striking from Holland, moved into the Reich at Scharper.secl, 11 miles north of Aachen. Other American First Army- troops are fighting the Germans six and one half miles east of Aachen, in the factory town of Sl.olberg. The Paris radio says Stol- borg has been captured, but the report appears to be premature. As for the action on the American Third Army front to the south, General Patton's forces have driven to within six and one-half miles of Mct/i. In the great tank battle northeast ot Nancy the Americans are grinding forward—but slowly. The Germans still are counter-attacking. Meanwhile, Allied engineers arc clearing the great French ports ot Brest, on the Atlantic, and Boulogne, on the channel. And tho British radio says the fall of another channel port—Calais—is imminent. Over in Italy, the Allies have scored a series of fresh gains, from one end of the front to the other. American Fifth Army forces are nearing the Futa pass through the Appcnines north ot Florence, despite a driving rain. The pass is but 2S miles south of Bologna, the gateway to northern Italy, and the Germans arc believed to be shift- 'ln gtroops from the western sector in an attempt to hold the Fifth Army columns. The Allies made other" gains on the west coast, above Viareggio, and in the Adri- aticf south of Rimini as well as in the tiny Republic of San Marino. In's air warfare, Berlin broadcasts say Allied bombers arc over western Germany today. One other note from Europe: The Brussels radio says '.that Prince Charles—the brother of King Leopold—has been elected a regent of Belgium.

S. Navy. The local sailor serving with a naval beach battalion took part in three Invasions, Tunisia, Sicily, and northern France. The bench battalion is composed of fighting men, he aaid, who land with attacking Army forces, and then unload ships, while the fighting continues. It is not unusual, he aaid, for the sailors to get in the fight themselves. The attack on France was a bit harder than, the other two, Seaman Camp said, and even though he landed H-plus'lG hours on D-Day, the German 88 mm Kims were no fun. His ship had arrived with the original Invasion vessels about 23 miles from Cherbourg, but had to lay off shore before it was deemed safe enough-to land. He was aboard a Liberty ship. He remained on the beachhead until August 18, when he returned to England' with his unit. He arrived in the States September 10. The biggest "thrill" came one night, he said, while on the beachhead as the German Luftwaffe, still around then, bcL'an to lay its explosive eggs. The seaman had experienced bombings before, but close," Kortunatcly, he survived this time "it just was a little too the campaign, as the two previous, uninjured. Seaman Camp will take Beverly Dauty as his brige at the Methodist church Saturday at -1:30 p. m., and will report to Occuiiside, California upon tho end of his leitve ne.xt month. His bride will remain here. Stamps-Bonds Sold In Schools This Week Amount To $1001.15 The sale of war stamps and bonds passed the SI,000 mark in the local schools this week.

Russian Paper Says Reds Have Almost Won Baltic Fight (By Unltotl' Press) The Soviet government newspaper Izvcslla says the Red urmy has almost won its campaign to liberate the Baltic states. Four Russian armies arc riding down the rear guard of some 200,000 German troops. One is thrusting deeply toward the sea r.orth- west ot Valga in southern Estonia, while a second sweeps rapidly toward the Estonian port of Tallinn. The' third force is pushing against Riga from the east, and the fourth is storming the Latvian capital's suburbs. Ixvestla'y mililary commentator, writing against this backdrop in sarcastic vein, says: "The Germans scon will be compelled to announce the 'successful' conclusion of the Baltic campaign." But Moscow's press is not ;-o happy about the trend of events in i-inland. Angry editorials UCCUK< :hc Finns of failing to meet the terms of the new armistice treaty. They charge Finnish authorities with neglecting to disarm the Ger- inans—and even helping them t-j escape. Ixvestia declares lhat three times In the past—in 1921, 1930, and 19-11 —Finland displayed open hostility to the Soviet Union. It says the northern republic was granted independence by Russia in 11)17— and in return has long used its geographic position to Ihrcaten the northwestern Soviet borders. The journal solemnly warns: "This | cannot and must r.-jt be repcat- ! ed." All Moscow newspapers unite in demanding the immediate fulfill- ment'of armistice terms requiring 1 he disarming and imprisonment of Germans throughout Finland.
