Antiaircraft fire was heard In several earliest areas night after raid one of alarms the this month. Later reports said London appeared to be the sole target of the invading aircraft. Scores of flares followed the incendiaries in one district, illuminating the area like daylight. Firewatchers doused them quickly and little damage was reported. Incendiaries started fires in two other London areas but they soon were reported out. One plane was shot down by antiaircraft gunners in one of the "home counties" near London. Residents said the plane exploded with a "terrifying flash" just before it struck earth, scattering wreckage. Later the air ministry announced one of the crew was killed and the other were captured. The raiders-passed signal sounded before midnight. Bomber Shot Down Earlier a communique of the air and home security ministries reported another bomber was shot down into the sea off the Norfolk coast in a day of intermittent Nazi attacks on widely separated points in England and Scotland. None of the few invaders flew very far inland, the communique said, and a limited number of bombs fell in Eastern and Southeastern England and Northern Scotland, "causing a little damage and a small number of casualties". In addition to the one daylight raider reported destroyed off the Norfolk coast, the air ministry's news service said British fighters damaged two others, one of which was last seen heading off over the north sea "with small chance of reaching its base".

There arc other reasons to believe that the real stake Hitler is playing for in the Balkans is to maintain the status quo and avoid two-front war for Germany while he strikes at England.

A mild tear gas was used.

Willkie conferred tonight with Joseph Martin, representative, chairman of the Republican National Committee, and predicted afterward that Martin would reconsider his decision to retire from his party post. Willkie and Martin talked for almost an hour in the 1940 Republican presidential nominee's hotel room. Afterward Martin declared that Willkie "was kind enough to urge me to stay on, and I have taken the suggestion under advisement". "Hopes Joe Will Stay" "Joe is one of the finest friends I ever had. I hope he stays on as national chairman until the national committee has ample time to give consideration to his successor. "I believe he will." Martin has been urged by many other Republican leaders to continue in his present post. He announced recently, however, that he would resign at a meeting of the party's national committee March 24. Martin May Continue Martin indicated tonight that he would present his resignation, but that he might agree to continue if it were rejected. During the day Willkie talked for half an hour with Lord Halifax, the British ambassador, and friends said the two men "chatted amiably" about conditions in Great Britain. Willkie, who recently made a flying survey trip to Britain, also made an qff-the-record address on his experiences to the National Press Club today. He arranged to dine tonight with Eugene Meyer, publisher of the Washington Post. o — Bill Would Require Permit To Inventors WASHINGTON, Feb. 17—(AP) Senator Bone, Democrat, Washington, introduced a bill today requiring inventors to obtain a special permit from the office of patents before registering designs or models in foreign countries, to safeguard secrets essential to the national defense. o .The United States has about 56,000,000 men and women gainfully employed—a number far greater than the entire population of the British Isles or France. auarter-mile-square area. The "attack"' lasted half an hour. It was as close to the real thing as civil defense authorities could contrive. Brighton, a seaside resort of 147,000—about the size of Bridgeport, Conn.—lies 50 miles due south of London, facing the 'invasion coasts" of German-occupied France. Policemen, bus drivers, waitresses, clerks and others who had :o remain at their posts went about n their pig-snouted masks until ;he all-clear sounded. For two days loud speakers and posters had given advance warning of the "exercise," but there had been no indication that gas actually would be used. The mayor said the test was a 'great success." An Air Raid Precautions official reported that tear ;as had been used "to impress the JUblic that they need to carry gas masks. If they do get the real thing, they won't have advance warning."' Free masks have long been available to the entire population and anyone who doesn't have one now either never bothered to get one or has lost or disposed of his. Forgetful travelers still leave thousands of masks in trains and busses each week. Prime Minister Churchill's recent warnings, that the Germans may use gas (the Germans say they won"t if the British don't) have renewed interest in the subject. In the first days of the war nearly everyone carried his mask in a shoulder strap case like a camera. In London, Sir Philip Game, head of police, ordered every policeman to take a refresher gas course and wear his respirator 20 minutes daily while on duty.

The governor conferred with Mr. Perner then announced he would accept the resignation at Mr. Perner's insistence.
