Philadelphia snuff heiress, and are chief litigants for all of her t20.000.000 estate. Up to last week they were the apparent closest of kin to Mrs. Oarrett, but now Herman A. Kretschmar, 92- year-old St. Louis, Mo., bachelor, has filed a claim for the entire estate, asserting he is a cousin of Mrs. Garrett. Last Friday The Ga7-ette carried a picture of Mr. Kretschmar under the caption of "Claims Snuff Fortune," but at that time was not aware that the Sterling residents were involved in the fight for the estate, which is being contested in the Orphans court In Philadelphia, The Sterling litigants, according to official record on file In the office* of William Davlson of Philadelphia, named master by the court to conduct extensive examinations Into kinships and review proof before disposition, arc named among many others as seeking rightful shares of the fabulous multi-million dollar estate.

Johann met his bride in Phlladel- LpniiJand isjjelieved to have married her there. According" to some legal authorities. Kretschmar's chances of proving his case, assumed to be an attempt to show that his father, a soldier of fortune who died as one of St. Louis' most esteemed eitisens, was one of the sons of John (or Johann) Kretschmar, the cloth- maker, preceding his family to America by some five years, and that Henrietta, a sister, was the •rather of Mrs. Henrietta Schaefer Parrett. : ' Daughter Telb •< Clalme - : The Oazette was unable to reach Cither Harris F. or Lloyd E.

Barbara Shaffer. She is a daughter of Harris F. Shaffer. Mrs. Marschang states that it has - been established that her father's .lather was a nephew of Mrs. Omr- rett; also that the family name-formerly was "Schaeffer." spelled that lanky by his grandfather, Ellery Bchaeffer, who was bom in Pennsylvania. The latter passed away 13 years ago at Elmhurst. HI. While the claim * Kretschmar is the greatest challenge to the in- terests of -Harris and, Lloyi Shaffer. - the 83-year old bachelor has yet to prove his kinship to the satisfaction of the court, while the Shaffer brothers' claim of kinship has been accepted by the special master.

The address wf Col.

"Time is not on our side." he said. "We have not a moment to spare." The economic value of the $40.000.000 project to southern Illinois was stressed by Roscoe Piilliam, president of the Southern Illinois Normal university. To a "region of severe unemployment and deep business depression for many years, now we hope and believe it will bring unemployment for workers and business to communities," he said. He n.wrted the plant also will give southern Illinois a chance to make a "really great contribution to national defense." lO.OeO WitneM Hag Raisinc State highway police estimated at 10.000 the crowd who stood under a bright October sun and witnesseed the raising of the flag for the first time before the plant's administration building.

Assistant Secretary of State Breckenridge Lone in which the American suggested that Germany, in calling on Italy for fighting men, might make of Italy "another Russia." Tttt Germans called it a low trick to totlrtate that Italy and Germany ever could be separated and fascist circles in Rome termed the speech "a propaganda move" made ridiculous by the "bond of alliance and Ideals between the two nations." Dr. Walter Funk, German economic minister and Reichsbank president, accepting an honorary degree from the University of Rome, declared that Germany already had started using Russia's resources and predicted barter trade between dominated Europe and American countries after the war. H* said that the war had nearly trebled German-Italian trade and (Hat the British bUMkade, had Men "finally broken." The official German news agency. DNB, published an eye-witness account of a U-boat attack on a British north Atlantic convoy last week in which it said that one of the two destroyers claimed sunk apparently was one of the 90 such craft which the United States had traded to Britain for western hemisphere bases. There had been speculation In Berlin as to whether the U-boat- convoy battle occurred in waters where the Keamy was torpedoed but Berlin thus far has only denied that any German craft fired on the Kaaray. * , Fronchot Tone Marries Singer and Dancer, IB visited m, Dixon a efeturday On Rock lslt«d Program Dele sVhnmarhy, »t» «f Mr. and lira.

Expects Appeal From Reds (or Food With Wheat Top Hem By Ovid A. Martin WASHINGTON — (AP) — Russia may have to turn to the United States for food supplies, particularly wheat, as a result of the loss of rich grain-producing areas of the Ukraine, agriculture department officials said today. It was suggested that import of grain from this country into Vladivostok would release a considerable quantity of Siberian grain for shipment westward into that portion of European Russia not occupied by Hitler's forces. There was no indication that the Russian 1 government has approached the United States for food supplies, but officials said the war had raised serious obstacles for the soviet government in the task of supply its army and civilians. " Officials said a rigid censorship prevented this country from know- Ing the exact food situation in Russia. However, a report prepared by the office of foreign agricultural relations on the basis of past production and information that was available before the Germans , moved against Russia had this to say: "Soviet Russia at the beginning of the present war had a smaller export surplus of foodstuffs that could be diverted to domestic use than in 1914, when such a margin proved most helpful in meeting suddenly increased requirements occasioned by mobilization and war." Officials said'there was little reliable Information on the actual effect of the war on farm operations during the current season. Soviet reports were said to be optimistic.

In 'the clash b<-twf>m the Greer fmd a *-:bmnri in September, the n*-.> re-ports no effort to indicate- the nationality of the undor;=efl<; ratdcr. although Berlin subsequent !v acknowledged,. that it was a U-boat which mis«» •he destroyer with two torpedoes. Apparently the submarine, like th? Greer. escaped unscathed In that shoot ins: episode. Nazi authorities llr.is far have that they" have received no wort frosn any German ship about Kearny. Going n stop further, Berlin has charged that the KeamT incident was purposely "trumped up" by administration officials to inflame the nation against the Reich. The assumption here was that the navy believed it possessed proof of the submarine's nationality, but there was no hint how tt was obtained. One conjecture was that some of the Kearny's crew caught a glimpse of the undersea*^ boat before or during the enga| mcnt. but the opportunity for such observation Is usually remote under the circumstances indicated. In it.'S supplementary announcement on the incident the navyi fnr- the first time since the outbrea* of the European war, found using the long since familiar lac* guage of British admiralty communiques: "The next of kin of th* missing and the two critically ar>£ seriously Injured have been nou- fled."
