TEN GERMANS CRY, ONTO WARSAW Nazis Report Sweeping Victories Against Poles, All Quiet In West BERLIN, Sept. 6 (£>)— With official reports of all quiet on the western front the third day of the French-German state of war. the supreme army command announced today sweeping victories against Poland on the eastern front. These were announced as new German strokes against Poland: 1. Capture of Kielce, about 100 miles south of Warsaw, and within 50 miles of Sandomierz, seat of the Polish arms industry. 2. Capture of tens of thousands of prisoners in the Corridor (Po- morze) and elsewhere in northern Poland. 3. Capture of 60 field g-uns. .4. Capture of Bydgoszcz (Bromberg), 140 miles northwest of Warsaw, while German troops crossed the Netze river to the south of Bydgoszcz. Other German forces increased their threats to .Warsaw and Krakow, modern and ancient capitals of Poland. "On to Warsaw!" and "On to Krakow!" were German battlecries in widely separated parts of Poland. Meanwhile, the German command as late as 10 a. m. (4 a. ni. EST) insisted there had been no action on the western front facing France. : (A French communique, however, said French forces effected "some local advances" overnight in their pressure on Germany's Siegfried Line.) BOARD PLANS ROADOWTROL (Continued from Page 1) •will be budgeted to remain within the county's annual share of the 1^/2 cent gas tax and that no additional taxes will be levied for road purposes. "I've asserted time and again that I sincerely believe the county can repair and build lateral roads at considerable less cost than was the case under the State Roads Commission, and that consequently the county will do more work with the money available than was done under the state," Mr. Maugans added. He continued that it is the intention to take care of the little problems as well as the big, meaning that special attention, will be given to small jobs, such as holes in roads, minor washouts, etc., all of which would remain undone for weeks under state control. "We've promised to take Washington county farmers out of the mud and we're going to do it" he concluded. BEAVER WAR ROCHESTER, Minn., Sept. 6 (ff>). Farmers of Quincy township are working like beavers because some beavers are working like beavers. The beavers built a dam across a river branch, flooding a road. Every time the farmers removed it or opened it the beavers rebuilt it. One night the farmers strung lanterns along the dam, but that apparently only helped the beavers to see tetter at their work. Now the farmers are patrolling 24 hours a day, trying to drive the dam builders off the beaver dam. YOUTH KILLED BYW.M.TRAIN John Reath, 14, Fatally Injured Near Mulberry Street Crossing. Funeral services for John K.

During the school year 1939-1940 tax exempt schools and colleges ir Washington county will be able to assist an increased number of needy students to continue their educa tiou through part-time employment provided by the student aid pro gram of the National Youth Admin istration, according to an announce nient today by Ryland N. Dempster NYA Administrator for Maryland. The School Aid Fund allotment to seven schools in Washington county is §0,534, an increase of ?2,S5S over last year's fun Quota. Tin will permit 121 needy students to earn between ?3 and |C a month while attending school. . Under the NYA college and grad uate aid program, $145,965 has been allotted to colleges in the state this year. This fund quota is based upon 10 per cent of the institution's enrollment of students between the ages of 16 and 24 inclusive, as of October 1, 1938. Needy undergraduates may earn from $10 to $20 a mouth, and graduate students may earn from $20 to $30 a month, according to the student's need for cash to meet college expenses. Students between the ages of 1C and 24 inclusive are eligible to apply for NYA student aid assist* auce, if they meet entrance requirements and give evidence of ability to maintain a satisfactory scholastic record. Their need for this assistance is determined by the school and college officials, who investigate each case and then select the most needy applicants. NYA students earn the monthly payment on part-time jobs which, are planned and supervised by the school authorities. The work performed by the NYA students must be useful and in no way replace any of the regular employes of the school or college. The rates of pay are set by each institution in accordance with the prevailing rate for student labor. During the past school year over 378,000 young people were enabled to continue their education in high schools and colleges in the United States at an average annual cost of $58.50. These boys and girls ame from families having an average income of .$667. Their scholastic work was above the average.

State Roads Commission inspectors have disclosed. Frederick county has had two violations that resulted in lines being imposed. The law outlaws any vehicle and load with a gross weight of more than 21 tons and applies special provisions as to brakes on axles. The fine limits for violations are i from ?5 to .$100. The new law was designed to eliminate much damage ro suite highways by too heavily-loaded trucks. The damage usually does not become apparent until cold weather. Furthermore chains on such heavy trucks cause considerable damage. BALTIMORE, Sept. 6, (/P). — Three murderers, a volunteer fire- nan convicted of arson and a county relief executive serving a orgery sentence will have their )arole applications heard by Com- nissioncr Herman M. lUoser Sep- ember 13. The murderers are Noah Nock, egro, given an 18-year sentence in Vicomico in 1933 for second-degree nurder; Thomas Quickmore. negro, erving a similar term on a similar barge, who was sentenced in Bal- imore City in 1U3:J; and James WiN iam, negro, serving r> years for econd-degree murder in Carroll ouuty. The lireman, Reuben R. Palmer, eturned to the scene of a fire near ensingtou, Md.. and helped other lembers of the Kensington coin- any extinguish it. He was given a ve-year term in Montgomery coun- y circuit court in 11)37. P. Ray Cornier was superinten- ent of county aid in Montgomery ouuty until he was charged and convicted of forgery in 1!)3S. He was given four years on conviction of cashing relief checks. PSYCHOLOGIST TELLS OF HITLER'S MENTAL DISORDER REPORT PALO ALTO, Calif., Sept. 6, (/P). —Before a group of social psychologists, Prof. Harry C. Steinmetz of San Jose State College repeated today what he termed "a, report or calumny" that Adolf Hitler was suffering from a severe mental disorder and was under the almost con- tant care of an alienist. Professor Steinmetz said the statement was made to him by "a leading American research physician, recently returned from Germany." He did not name the physician. The report "or calumny" said Hitler's affliction was paranoid manic depression. It is a supposedly incurable mental disease which causes its victims to have alternate fits of depression and elation, complicated by delusions that they are being persecuted. Professor Steinmetz, addressing a division of the American Psycho logical Association, made the re mark in a technical discussion ol what he termed increasing para noid conditions. He asserted whole people 01 groups were being subjected to a sort of national paranoid infection— that is, in their collective thinking and acting, particularly under pro longed, unusual stress. Erroneous beliefs, he said, became a center of paranoid infection, especially under social disorganization and tension. Such stresses, he added, may cause people to take refuge in delusions, in "rationalizatoins" or excuse making, or jn "defense mechanisms," which are mental tendencies designed to thwart expected trouble. PERSHING, LINDY DOING BIT AT CAPITAL ALMOST UNNOTICED WASHINGTON, Sept. 6 (/P).— Two of the most unnoticed figures in Washington today are men whose names for years have rolled off the tongues of millions of Americans. They are General John J. Persh- iug and Colonel Charles A. Lindbergh. Pershing. 78-year-old commander of the E.A.F. during the World war, is in Walter Reed hospital—not ill, but resting and receiving medical attention. Lindbergh, whose solo flight to Paris won him world acclaim, is at the War department. Like 108,000 other Washingtonians, both are working for the gov- irnment and have offices here. Pershing's office is an elaborate plush and gold-leaf decorated layout in the State Department building- Lindbergh's working place is in he Munitions building, a low, rambling structure near he Washington Monument. Neither door. has his name on the Over the portal leading to Persh- iug's the gilt-lettered sign: "General of the Armies." Lindbergh's door is plain. In fact, even by asking, you have a hard time finding just where it is. The men come and go very quietly and they never appear at public gatherings. Pershing conferred early this week with Secretary Woodring about the European war. Lindbergh has been surveying various phases of aircraft production. (Continued from Page 1) vhere the German Saar Basin lies jetween the Rhine and Moselle ivers. That 100-mile front is the most iccessible to French forces, with 10 river barrier in the no-man's- and between France's Maginot ,ine and Germany's Siegfried Line. Announce Gains Jn the third day of operations, today's communique was the first to innounce gains. Previous cautious iommuniques said simply a cam- taign had begun and was proceed- ng "normally" with "contact" with German forces in the area between he Rhine and the Moselle. The French public already had een warned by last night's com- nunique that "permanent fortifica- ious" line the front, lest hopes be MARKSMAN GRAND ISLAND, Neb., Sept. 6 (/P).—Jim Steidly, student at the Annapolis Naval Academy, hopes he will b-e as accurate with the guns of the Navy as he is with his golf clubs. Steidly, visiting with his family here, scored an ace on the 177-yard third hole at the local country club —a feat accomplished only once before on that hole. ILLUSION ROCHESTER, Ind., Sept. 6 (/P).— Jittery motorists thought they were seeing things when they passed two pink elephants 'plodding along a ! road south of here. | Th^y weren't — the elephants | were really thnre. A circus drove them overland from winter quarters here to a Logansport engagement to save freight. The elephants wore covers of deep pink. aised too high by the reported local advances." The local gains were interpreted y military observers to mean that 'reach infantrymen Tinder covering rtillery lire b»75-millimeter guns .ad succeeded in crossing the fron* ier at several points, taking out- ying concrete blockhouses. There was no indication yet to nportant gains or a general of- ensive, but the French pressure ap- arently was increasing in the cam- aign to force Germany to draw her trength away from Poland. The second air raid alarm of the morning ended at 11:20 a. m. (5:20 a. m., EST) with the capital apparently still untouched by enemy bombs. Newspapermen at the War Min- j istry getting the morning's com- munique when the second alarm sounded took refuge with officers in underground shelters. At the Chamber of Deputies, ushers and legislators alike gathered in the cellar. The half-hour alarm was the shortest thus far, and the city resumed its activities with a rush as soon as sirens sounded the "all ' clear" signal. Drumming motors were heard at 3:14 a. m. (0:14 p. m.. Tuesday, EST)—a half hour after warning sirens had sent Parisians underground for a second successive j night of air raid alarm. The planes, believed to have i been on a reconnoitering expedition, did not return, and no bomb- j ing operations were reported in the I capital or elsewhere. ! Parisians, quickly accustoming ! themselves to nighttime alarms, took blankets and pillows along with their gas masks into the bombproof refuges. Some carried bottles of wine and beer to while away . the time in wakefulness. i Still others refused to budge j from their beds at the sound of the sirens. Aircraft Topic Of Discussion Lewis Fahnestock, 3d, chief engineer for the Fairchild Aircraft Corporation, was the speaker at the regular weekly meeting of the Lions Club at the Alexander Hotel yesterday. His topic was the evolution of the airplane. In his discussion.. Mr. Fahnestock used a model of the Fairchild "24" to better illustrate to his audience the various parts of the modern aircraft, and to assist them in visualizing the high^engineering standards that go into its construction. Mr. Fahnestock stated that he fore any commercial aircraft is placed on the market, all engineering calculations are checked by the civil aeronautics commission in Washington, and that all machines are designed to withstand 50 per cent more strain than would be placed on them under any flying conditions. Canada Signs Up WARSAW FALL IS IMMINENT (Continued from Page 1) possible that even high-flying scouting planes could have made exploratory flights without detection. Neutral observers said there had been no air alarms in Berlin.) The communique said "enemy aviators yesterday continued their aerial brutality in bombarding towns, railway stations and columns of fleeing refugees on highways." "Polish planes effectively bombarded German tank columns near CMechauow and near Radomska," the communique added. Reverses Denied (While not making specific reference to that statement, German officials denied reports of German reverses circulated abroad.) Invading German armies unmasked a powerful drive to take the Polish capital while a city deserted by official life and by the majority of its citizens waited tensely for the battle that would decide its fate. . Fighting raged to the north and west. The Nazi infantry was preceded in its push by planes that yesterday roared over Warsaw in repeated attacks which no Polish planes rose to meet. Several hundred thousand residents remained of the normal 1,300,000 population—many of them because of lack of money with which to leave, others because they had turned back in despair from highways choked with horses, autos, arts, bicycles and plodding, bundle- laden pedestrians. The government secretly left the city last night leaving only skeleton staffs. (Budapest diplomatic sources said the government was setting up headquarters at Lublin, 90 miles southeast of Warsaw.) The official exodus added to the confusion since the Avar office left no one authorized to give out information. The press gave no hint of what was going on. recruit for the famous Essex Scottish Batta- Hon at Windsor, Out., as CanaCa prepares for war. With the Canadian parliament meeting in special war sesion, the country is expected to follow England into the war against the German government. COST OF WAR TREMENDOUS (Continued from Page 1) 000,000,000, the United States by ^24.000,000,000. Both countries have tried to main:ain their currencies and service heir debts by taxation, and o course everybody pays taxes, d ectly or indirectly. Other major powers wiped ou ho biiik of their war dobts by cle preciation of currencies. Englanc finally came to a partial deprecia ion in 1031, and the United States the gold content of the dolla ibout 40 per cent in 1933. But Germany's currency was per mitted to depreciate until it waf vorth nothing, and obligation msed on it were valueless. France's interiml debt rose b 190,000,000.000 francs during th var, but the franc dropped fron 9.3 cents in 1914 to an average o cents in 1920, and currently, 01 he basis of the old gold dollar, i only about l\-> cents. That is one way of getting rid o debt, and that is the way most o the countries iu the lust World Wai got out from under their debts. Another way of course is out right default. Remember some $14, 000,000.000, principal and interest of war debts owed the Unilec States? But let us say currency depre oiution, or inflation, is the favorite method. Who pays then? Tin thrifty, say economists, the big mid die class of persons AV]IO have sav ed, put their money away conserve tively, in best bonds and savings ac counts. And usually almost every body suffers too, because the cost o living is likely to rise much fastei than wages and salaries. Plan Exams For 4 Appointments Representative Byron Announces Competitive Tests To Be Made. Representative William D. Byron announced today that competitive examinations will be held October 7 for appointment by him to the Naval Academy at Annapolis and the Military Academy at West Point. Representative Byron strongly urges that all young men of the Sixth District of Maryland, who are eligible and desire to attend either of the academies, to take the examinations. Requirements for appointment to the Naval Academy are that the appointee must be unmarried, a resident of the Sixth District and between the ages of 16 and 20. For appointment to West Point the candidates must be at least five feet four inches in height, never married, a resident of the Sixth District and not less than 17 years of age or more than 22. Representative Byron announces | there will be three appointments to the Naval Academy and that one principal and three alternates will be appointed for each appointment At West Point there will be one appointment and there will be one principal and two alternates appointed for this appointment. Because of the many requests foi appointments to the Naval Academy and the Military Academy, Representative Byron announced that the only fair way to distribute these appointments would be through a competitive examination, to be given by the United States Civil Service Commission. Those interested in competing for the appointments should commuui- cate with Congressman William D. Byron, Room No. 316, fiouse Office Building, Washington, D. C., not later than September 13. Representative Byron will furnish all who are interested in taking the examination, a form issued by the Civil Service Commission, giving full information and scope of the examination. Short Course For Bremen Started COLLEGE PARK. Md., Sept. 6 The tenth annual University of Maryland short course for firemen opened here Tuesday.

The ruling of-Attorney General William C.

Snyder and Martin V. B. Bostetter, have not been working on the Sabbath since taking office last May. "We knew the law when we took office," Magistrate Snyder said this morning when asked if the ruling of the Attorney General will have any effect here. The Attorney General made the ruling at the request of M. J. Birmingham, trial magistrate of Essex, Baltimore county, who reported that he has been frequently called on Sundays to try traffic court charges against out-of-state drivers, who did not want to have to post collateral to return for hearings. Magistrate Snyder said that so far out-of-state motorists arrested here on Sundays have posted collateral without argument or gone to jail.

At least two German vessels were prepared for an attempt to dodge British vessels off Buenos Aires in an effort to reach Germany. The freighter Gonzenbeirn swung into the Rio Plata river and headed toward the ocean. The freighter Anatolia sailed from Rosario toward Hamburg with a cargo of cereals. The British sea attack was coordinated with successful aerial "raids" in which a total of 9,000,000 leaflets were scattered on German industrial areas. The leaflets said the war was not against the Germans, but against their Nazi leadership, and urged them to "get rid of Hitler." Retreat Not Unexpected British strategists viewed news of the Polish retreat as "not good but not unexpected." Those strategists pointed out the narrow neck of Poland, pinched between Germany and East Prussia, was particularly vulnerable. They asserted withdrawal of the Poles was based on the realization that holding the Corridor against flanking artillery fire and air raids for any length of time was practically impossible and not worth the losses entailed. Further restrictions were imposed by the government as the war's magnitude increased. They included control of employment by the government; requisitioning of all stocks of imported and canned meats; limiting the amount of foreign exchange n. traveller may take out of the country; fixing of prices for the sale of fat cattle, sheep and pigs for slaughter, and prescription of wholesale and retail prices of sugar and tea.
