THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MD., WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 193& DECLARES WAR ON PROFITEER Official "Trust-Buster" Promises Criminal Indictments ; To Stop It ATLANTIC CITY, N. J., Sept. 13 OP)-—Thurman W. Arnold, official "trust-buster" for the United States government, served notice today that his office would make generous use of the criminal indictment to break up war-time "profiteering." He served this warning during a speech before the National Petroleum Association, which comprises most of the country's oil men. Arnold said his office was being "flooded" with letters complaining about current "proofiteering," and would take swift action to "deter reckless offenders from getting started and compelling orderly busienss men to follow in self-protection." "I regret" he said, "that my instrument of prevention happens to be the criminal indictment. I hope that legislation will be passed which will put the differences between the oil industry and the antitrust division on the civil side of the docket by providing adequate civil penalties. Until that happens, I will be forced to continue using the criminal indictment." He added: "If we are to preserve our political democracy we must not let economic democracy slip out from under us. If we are to preserve peace we must gave peace-time industry an equal chance to compete with expanding war industry in the troubled times ahead." Arnold said there was no justification for present "high prices" on the basis of supply and demand, and that "this is the kind of situation which demands immediate action, not long-time reform." "Public hysteria started this movement toward high prices," he said, "but organizations continued it and took advantage of it. I expect this condition is only, temporary, but, nevertheless, it has already taken millions of dollars in tribute and embarrassed thousands of small'business men. It is an advance symptom of what may happen in the future." Windsor Awaits War Assignment (Continued trom Pag* 1) paring in size with those for the •war news. It was the Chanel harbor of Portsmouth where the Duke last saw England early the morning of Dec. 12, 1936. The night before, in his historic farewell broadcast from Windsor Castle, he had said: "It may be some time before I return to my native land." The homecoming recalled another passage from the memorable broadcast: "If at any time in the future I can be found of service to His Majesty in a private station, I shall not fail." The Daily Express gave the Duke an editorial cheer, saying, "The nation will welcome the news of his return. Here is the place where he should dwell. In peace, for it is his home. In war. for duty calls him here as it does every man of British blood. "He returns as a private citizen and also as a soldier remembered by soldiers. He brings qualities which can be of high service to his country's cause at this hour." The Duke, 45, last June, is a field marshal on the active list and colonel-in-chief of the Welsh Guards.

Phont M Urges Army At Full Strength Pershing, 79, Today, Wants Congress To Provide Funds. WASHINGTON, Sept. 13. (ff>). General John J. Pershing urged today, on his 79th birthday, that Congress provide funds at its coming special session "to carry the military establishment to its full peace strength." Full strength -would be 280,000 men in the regular army and 424.000 in the National Guard. Since the war broke out in Europe, President Roosevelt has already ordered expansion of the army to 227,000 and the guard to 235,000. The A. E. F. commander-in-chief said in a birthday statement to the press: "I must again recall our deplorable situation when we entered the World War 22 years ago. Then not a single move had been made, from a military point of view, to prepare for it. That experience, with its costly lesson, I am happy to sav, appears certain to be avoided in. the event that we should again become involved in war." The General issued this statement from Walter Reed hospital, where he is undergoing a periodic physi cal checkup and watching Europe's new war from his bed and easy chair. Favor Parole For Aid Supervisor BALTIMORE, Sept. 13. (£>)—Parole Director Herman W. Moser today recommended parole for P. Ray Souder, 4S, former supervisor of Montgomery county aid, serving a four year sentence for forgery in connection with a $25.00 relief check. A delegation of more than 30 persons, including James H. Pugh, State's Attorney who convicted Souder. and Chief of Police Alvie A. Moxley. appeared on behalf of Souder who has served 16 months of his sentence. The director said he was recommending the parole in view of the fact that Souder had a previous good record and that 1200 citizens of Montgomery county had petitioned for the parole ^and that Trial Judge Charles W. Woodward did not oppose it. Pugh said that Souder was indicted by "a reckless grand jury" and that he was the only one of five public officials indicted at the same time who had been convicted. He added that "he was the victim of the circumstances." NO KIDDING KINGFISHER, Okla., Sept. 13 (JP). —Henry Leonhardt means business.

BIG GUNS OF NAZIS POUND SAAR TOWNS (Continued from Page 1) thirds of the woods and the situation was unchanged since they first advanced. Military observers commented that in the second week of operations the campaign nevertheless remained in the preliminary phase with a major offensive believed foreshadowed by yesterday's first meeting of the Allied Supreme War Council not yet in evidence. Concentration of armies was reported continuing on a large scale with the landing of the first British expeditionary force said to have been completed. Following this morning's war ministry communique which announced "great activity" yesterday by the air forces of both sides, French reports said three German planes were brought down while the French suffered "very small losses." The aerial battle began yesterday when German planes raced over the border to scout Alied troop movements. French planes roared up under the low-hanging clouds and tangled in dog-fights. A fresh squadron of French pursuit planes flew low over Paris this morning, racing east apparently to carry on combat German artillery meanwhile were pounding villages held by the French near Saarbruecken. French forces driving into Saar- bruecken and advanced fortifications of the Siegfried Line were reported under heavy fire from long range German artillery hidden miles to the rear. French guns thundered in fierce reply. The German guns pounded villages held by the French near Saar- bruecken. railroad junction and industrial heart of the rich Saar Basin. Fleet French tanks and armored cars were reported to have reached the outskirts "of Saarbruecken yesterday, thrusting immediately into the suburbs. The war ministry communique for this morning reported a "continuation of the reaction of the artillery in the course of the night." The communique referred briefly to "great activity here and there" by the air forces of both sides. Between the opposing guns lay stubble fields — the harvest had been gathered. The land was domed and pitted with pillboxes and machine gun nests, vulnerable only to direct hits from mortars. That was the scene as described in advices through Basel. French sources said their army had advanced only a few thousand yards a day in some sectors where violent fighting marked every action. The advance on Saarbruecken was said to have hammered a wedge in the Siegfried Line at its strongest point. Fall of the city would give the French control of the rich Saar mining basin, one of the most productive coal fieds. Saarbruecken, important railroad junction, lies about midway on a 100-mile front between the Moselle and Rhine rivers on France's northeastern boundary — northern wing of the western front. Communications Cut East of Saarbruecken the French reported cutting important German communications and shutting off reinforcements with an artillery barrage. To the northwest of the city, in a pocket formed by the Luxembourg and German borders, the French were said to be meeting fierce resistance. French and German infantrymen clashed in bayonet fighting. Comparatively unseasoned German reservists in that sector were said to have been replaced by veterans. A dispatch from Basel. Switzerland, described the artillery warfare near Luxembourg as one of the greatest duels in history. The Moselle valley had been converted into one of the most heavily fortified regions of the world with the great Sierck forts, on the French side, facing the German Trassen area. The main Siegfried line positions lie some seven miles behind Saar- bruecken, and apparently the heavy German shellfire came from them. The French fire in this district was laid down along a two-mile front through the eastern suburbs of the city to the aviation field, which had been a German military air base. The village of St. Arnual. midway between Saarbruecken and the airfield, caught the heaviest part of the French bombardment. The French tactics in the drive on Saarbruecken were said to have been typical of most operations thus far in the 11-day-okl war. First scouting -and fighting planes roared over German positions to keep the air clear of German counter-attack, then armored motorized units rolled upon the German positions, ripping through barbed wire entanglements. Behind tanks and armored cars went fighting engineers with the double'duty of mopping up German "suicide squads" which the army on wheels had missed, and of finding land mines and exploding them before the main bodies of troops followed in to fill out the lin^s of advance. By such tactics the French, now i backed in the field by British J Troops, were said to be closing j pincer-like on Saarbrueokon. I The first meeting of the allied I supreme war council yesterday Survivors Of Athenia, Sunk By A Torpedo, Tell Of Horrors Two Hundred Landed Today At Halifax Given Roaring Welcome; Captain Declares Vessel Was Torpedoed And Sunk. HALIFAX, N. S. Sept 13 (/P).—Tales of horror, first in the sudden sinking of the liner Athenia and then in repeated submarine scares as they crossed the Atlantic, were told today by more than 200 survivors as they landed here aboard the over-crowded freighter, City of Flint. With some of the women dressed in dungarees, some wearing men's shoes, the obviously tired and drawn survivors were rushed to impromptu first-aid stations after a roaring welcome as their ship came into the harbor. The first woman ashore was Mrs. John Hayworth, of Hamilton, Ont., whose child died aboard the City of Flint of a brain injury suffered in the sinking of the Athenia. She was nearly prostrated and had to be helped down the gangplank. One girl, Elizabeth Brown, of Houston, Tex., told a terrifying experience of being tossed into the water without a life preserver when the life boat, from which she set out from the Athenia, capsized. "I saw one man gasp for breath and die," she said. "It was horrible. Just before the life boat capsized I had removed my life preserver. Mrs. Franklin Dexter, of Boston, the former Dianne Palfrey of the famous tennis family, told how her husband refused to go in the same life boat as she did and waited to make sure there was room for others. He subsequently was picked up and taken to Scotland. The Dex- ters were returning from a European honeymoon. Haggard and worn after 10 days without sleep, Captain Joseph Gainard of the rescue ship told how they stowed 216 passengers with accom- odations for only six. "W-e made bunks from tarpaulin and arranged them in rows. We named the rows after streets." "I haven't been in this room for days," he said referring to his own cabin. "I haven't had a chance to sleep. I've had 10 girls quartered in here." Captain Gainard told reporters flatly that the Athenia was "torpedoed and sunk." Two American coast guard cutters preceded the City of Flint into the harbor, carrying six injured from the freighter. Crew members gave up their heavy clothing to keep women and children warm, and one survivor reported that many of the women went to work in the ship's galley, while others made dresses out of such material as they could find. SUPPORT FOR U. S. SALE OF ARMS GROWS (Continued From Page 1) announced he would support a "cash and carry" plan for arms sales, if it were properly safeguarded. Van Nuys is one of the committee members who, by a vote of 12 to 11 at the last session of Congress, delayed consideration of proposals to repeal the arms embargo provision of the neutrality act and otherwise revise that statute. His announcement today was regarded generally as assuring that the committee would place the issue before the Senate at the forthcoming special session. Must Safeguard Plan "I shall not support any legislation or alliances which may result in again sending American soldiers overseas, but I will favor a cash and carry plan that is properly safeguarded," Van Nuys wrote. The "cash and carry" idea is, generally speaking, that purchasers be required to pay cash and to transport purchases in other than American ships. Many legislators on both sides of the controversy say that repeal of the arms embargo would benefit England and France in their war with Germany because, although it would legally open American arms markets to all the belligerents, Britain would be able to prevent shipments from reaching her enemy. Opponents of repeal, among them Republican Senators Borah of Idaho and Vandenberg of Michigan, contend that it would constitute taking sides in the war and ultimately lead this country into the conflict. Senator Byrnes (D-SC) also announced support of a cash and carry plan of arms sales, saying that failure to adopt such a policy would aid an aggressor nation that has accumulated war reserves and punish "the peaceful nation that does not spend its resources in accumulating weapons of war." The President told his press conference yesterday that he would have an announcement "soon" about the proposed special session. PEACH SCARCITY REPORTED HERE A scarcity of peaches was reported today ..and according to some growers they" will continue scarce for several days or until remaining varieties ripen up. "We are right between pickings," one grower reported in explaining that his Fox Seedlings are still a little green while his Salways won't be ready for a week or two. After the Salways come the Krunnel arid then no more, it was reported. TEN PAROLES GET APPROVAL ANNAPOLIS, Md., Sept. 13 (/P).— Ten state prisoners went free today when Gov. Herbert R. O'Conor approved paroles recommended by the State Probation department. The governor stressed the fact that exhaustive study of the 10 individual cases had convinced him that the parole recipients were ready to rejoin society as useful, law-abiding members. Nine men and a woman. Blanche Stinnett, 19, convicted of larceny, were released under supervision. Others who received executive clemency were: Frank T. Green and Frank Kimmerle, larceny and receiving stolen goods. Baltimore; Matt L. Lee, drunken driving, Worcester county; Russell McCracken, assault, Anne Arundel county; Pas- quith Gaither, forgery: Baltimore; McKinley Mackall and Arthur Hicks, both colored, tobacco theft; David Jones, assault, Dorchester county. Wife Held In Negro's Death (Continued trom Page 1) with whom she had been living at the time. '' No charge has been placed against the woman. When taken into custody she denied knowing the whereabouts of Rose, who she claimed left home August 31. Ab Lucas told officers that he was attracted to the top of the Gaplaiid mountain near the war correspondents' monument by circling buzzards which had partially uncovered the body. Cursory examination disclosed that Rose evidently was hit in the head several times with a hatchet or axe. Authorities learned that Rose returned only a short time ago from California where he had served in the Navy. They also learned that he had some money. In the Lucas death in 193?., when Mrs. Rose was indicted for murder, the state charged that she tied a rope around the man's neck and then hit him about the face and head with a hatchet. She claims he had attacked her and that she was defending herself. Disposal Plant Here Finished (Continued from Paye 1) will be enough gas wasted to eventually generate sufficient power for aeriation and incineration. It has been estimated by the engineers that have been directing work that the operating expenses of the disposal plant will be reduced from 35 to 45 percent. It is also interesting to note that a part of the process used in sludge treatment known as the thickner process, is of a new type and only the second installation of its kind in the United States., The improvements also have made the plant more flexible than any of its kind in the East. The pollution of the Antietam and odors have been virtually eliminated, it was stated. Franklin County To Continue "Wet" POLESROUND UP GERMANS '(Continued from Pag« 1) the Germans were introducing the technique on a wholesale basis far exceeding similar experimental efforts in the World War. In each instance Polish soldiers and peasants rushed to seize the parachute juniper. Confirmation of the parachute descents and the capture of the Germans was given by several foreigners. The Warsaw radio broadcast a warning that scores of men were believed to have been dropped with parachutes and instructed townspeople and peasants to keep the closest watch, especially at night. Wore Disguises It asked that every effort be made to capture the men alive and to detain all suspicious characters since. it said, some of those dropped wore Polish uniforms and others were disguised as Polish peasants. In addition to operating alone, it was reported the parachute jumpers carried instructions to cooperate with the pro-Nazi German minority in Poland. One misjudged his jump outside Warsaw, it was reported, and. landed in one of the main streets where he almost was mobbed before police rescued him and turned him over to the military authorities. Another, coming down outside Warsaw, was declared to have pulled out a revolver and killed himself while he still was dangling over a squad of Polish soidiers rushing to surround his landing spot. Still another was said to have landed and been captured in a garden near the temporary American embassy at Naleczow. While driving from Warsaw to the Rumanian order, the writer heard of four others who, it was alleged, had been captured near various Polish villages, but it was impossible to confirm this. Germans Retreat German armies attacking Warsaw were reported by Poles to have been hurled back six miles in action which definitely put the invaders "on the run." The defenders of the Polish capital, an official broadcast from Warsaw declared, were manning new defense positions with fresh vigor wherever the Germans had been ousted. Official Polish broadcasts said the defenders' stand, based on lines set up along the east bank of the Vistula, was aided by: 1. The withdrawal of nine German divisions from the lines before Warsaw to other sections of the front. (A German division normally numbers from 10.000 to 12,000 men.) 2. The arrival of thousands of young volunteers, more than could be accepted into the army, from among the civilians pouring back into the city. 3. The news of reinforcements en route from the southeast through the gap between the jaws which the Germans are trying to encircle the city. Polish staff Captain Vaclav Lipinski, speaking from Warsaw, indicated the Polish forces all along the line were prepared to msike a unified stand. Asserting that German attempts to storm Warsaw with tanks and motorized units had failed. Capt. Lipinski said the Poles now were ready to "change a mobile war into a stationary war." "If the Germans brinj larger forces here," he said, "we will do likewise. We are accustomed now to nir raids, and German bombs are badly aimed." Unofficial returns from Franklin county's local option vote early today indicated that most of the townships were remaining "wet" by substantial margins. Waynesboro voted to continue the legal sale of alcoholic beverages by a majority of about 500 votes: in Gettysburg the "wets" held a lead of about 800 while Chambersburg was expected to follow suit although the vote there was expected a little closer. Shippensburg voted whiskey out but retained beer. There were no returns available from Blue Ridge Summit. Citizens voted only on the question of sale of liquor and beer in taverns. Sale in state stores was not affected. Baltimore Marks Defender's Day Baltimore, Sept. 12 (/P)—Balti- moreans celebrated today Defender's Day, the 125th anniversary of the repulse of British forces at North Point and the birth of the National Anthem. Banks and schools were closed and the postoffice operated on a holiday schedule. The celebration, sponsored by the Society of the War of 1812, will continue through Thursday. President Roosevelt signed a bill authorizing Federal participation on that day in ceremonies at Fort McHenry, shelled futilly by the British in 3814 while Francis Scott Key penned his patriotic lyric.

GERMANS SAY POLES MUST BE CRUSHED (Continued from Page 1) German line 60 miles west of Warsaw, was reported increasingly hopeless. Far to the south, German troops driving into the Polish Ukraine were said to have taken Sambor on the Dniester river. Advance guards also reached the western edge of Lwow (Lemberg), Ukranian capital, a communique said. Ridicule Report Of Losses There was no official comment on German casualties during the 13 days of fighting since the beginning of the war, but informed quarters ridiculed British press reports placing the Nazi dead at 25,000. A communique issued this morning indicated encirclement of Warsaw is being completed rapidly. Behind the fast moving armies, conquered Polish territory is relatively thinly occupied by troops. Near the German border, however, thousands of "auxiliary troops" have been rushed into the area to assist in building bridges and repairing roads. In many areas these troopsjjmany of them 18-year- old youths from the labor service, provide the only visible signs of occupation. Since the campaign began September I, no rain of any consequence has fallen in western Poland to impede the swift advance of the highly mechanized German forces. Dust on some of the highways has been so heavy that auxiliary troops have been kept busy watering the surface to facilitate movement of motorized columns. There was every indication the German army, organized to the most minute detail, has been clicking without a hitch. Despite poor highway conditions, few disabled German vehicles were to be found in the wake of the advance. Villages behind the front were desolate, many having been burned as well as heavily bombed. However, many inhabitants are returning afoot or in wagons to finish their harvesting. fODAY'S STOCK QUOTATIONS Quotations by Stein Bros & Boyce, McComas-Armstrong Bldg. Hagerstown, Md. Phone 302.

PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 13, (£>).— Slated candidates of the Republican and Democratic organizations were victorious clown the line, almost without exception, in Tuesday's light Pennsylvana primary balloting, latest tabulations showed today. The voting brought defeat to the first woman ever to -seek a seat on the Pennsylvania Supreme court. Seeking nomination on both tickets. Judge Sarah M. Soffel of Pittsburgh trailed both Judge Marion D. Patterson, Altoona Republican, and Democrat Herbert Funk Goodrich, University of Pennsylvania law school dean, who emerged the respective party nominees. In the only other state-wide contest, Republican organization forces swept three sitting judges through to re-nomination for the state Superior court. Democratic candidates were unopposed. Greatest interest in an otherwise uninspiring primary centered in 454 communities that voted oil whether to retain or restore drinking establishments.

His figure was taken from the fact that mills operating at around 63 per cent last week, were employing 455,000 workers with a monthly payroll of $00,000,000. Two years ago with production averaging between SO and 00 per cent the industry's monthly payroll was $80.000.000 for 572.000 workers. This spokesman and representatives of two other producers joined in saying they were having to limit tonnage to a basis comparable to past performances. Customers who have been buying 1,000 tons a quarter and now are demanding 5.000 tons for the next quarter, are having to slash their order. Prices for fourth quarter delivery have not yet been announced and most firms are taking orders for a specified amount at existing quotations and the remainder at the existing price when delivery is made. All executives stated there virtually were no war materials involved in the pickup and that only a few inquiries had been made by foreigners for any class of goods. One estimated the government had placed loss than $10.000.000 for steel. GARY. I ml., Sc:pt. 13 (/P).—Belching flames from steel mill stacks brightened business skies in the Calumet district today as thousands oC workers donned overalls and returned to their jobs for the first time in many months. Steel company officials estimated 10,000 workers would be called back if orders continue to pour in as they have since hostilities in Europe started. The magazine Iron Age reported that since the war began steel orders have been "assuming fantastic propotrions." "Business has boomed so fas," it said, "us virtually to swamp the sales 'and clerical forces of steel companies." TRY DR. SHIPLEY, Chiropractor, For your back: 21 W. Wash.
