About 200.000 have already arrived at Moscow, it was reported, and another 200.000 are on their way to 'help out where they most are needed"—presumably In the vicinity of Rostov, the Caucasus gateway below which Use German drive across the Crimea threatens to establish a short cut to the Caucasus Itself. Sevastopol UscleKs to Red Fleet Powerfully fortified. Sevastopol resisted a British-French-Turkish siege for 11 months In 1854-55, but advices reaching London conceded that the Germans already had Immobilized th'e port as a base for operations of the Soviet Black sea fleet. How long It could withstand a siege under the hammering of modern weapons was another question. A bulletin from Adolf Hitler's field headquarters said German troops knifing clear across the Crimea had captured the eastern coastal town of Feodosiya, on the southern side of the narrow Isthmus leading to the Kerch strait, perhaps thereby cutting off the eastern avenue of escape to the Caucasus. German dispatches said the red armies trapped in the Crimea— variously estimated to number from 250,000 to 500.000—faced almost inevitable annihilation, and that the shattered remnants were fleeing headlong to the sea in the hope of duplicating the British withdrawal from Dunkerque. However, the nazis made a similar claim when Soviet troops falling back through the Ukraine took a stand at Odessa, where they__held out for many weeks before wlth- •drawlng. Nazi reports from the front said German dive bombers already had sunk or damaged 26 Russian transports waiting in the harbors of Sevastopol. Kerch and Yalta. Naval action flared overnight in the English channel, with the admiralty reporting that British warships "heavily engaged" strong axis forces escorting a supply ship, which was torpedoed and "probably sunk or beached." One British ship was damaged and five men wounded in the action, the admiralty aald, while "damage and casualties are likely to have been inflicted on the enemy." Elsewhere in the Battle of the Atlantic, the German high command credited nail bombers and U-boats with sinking a destroyer and 14 merchant ships totaling 73,000 tons in a new series of attacks on Britain's vl tal supply lines.

Navy Tanker Struck By German Torpedo (Continued from page one) ment announced, but withheld Information for the present on the location of the crash,'-the type of ship and other details. While there was nothing official on the subject, it was hinted broadly, that the plane probably was one of the navy's long-range PBY patrol ships, which have been serving as the eyes for surface fleet operations. Since the United States occupied Iceland and President Roosevelt ordered the armed services to keep the sea lanes open to North America, 12 other men have lost their lives. Eleven 'were killed In the U-boat attack on the destroyer Kearny, and one army flier with the Iceland task force met death when his warplane crashed. If the Indicated Reuben James losses prove correct, the list of men who have perished in line of duty will UHa] 121 since Aug. 19, the day the army flier was killed. The Reuben James casualty breakdown showed that she was carrying 142 officers and men In her crew— a heavier complement than originally believed. The normal complement for a destroyer of her type Is 122, but she was operating under virtual wartime conditions when crews are usually larger. Mtoalng Men Not Uste-i The navy made public the list of the destroyer's known dead—W. H. Merrell. a fireman, first class, of Ardmore, Tenn.. and D. R. Olmstead, fireman, second class, of Olean. N. Y.— and of the 45 survivors. The names of the enlisted men unaccounted for were not released. The names of the seven missing officer* were made public last Friday, when the number of enlisted men survivors tentatlvely-at-M. The Reuben James was on convoy duty when she was torpedoed, and that fact at first gave, rise to hopes that the casualties might not be heavy. It was thought then that many of the men might hare been picked up by other ship* in the, con voy. but that their rescue had not been reported because the ships were observing silence in U-boat Infested water*. Many' times In the past survivors of sinkings have been listed as missing for several days until the ship rescuing them reach ed the safety of port. The whole tenor of the navy's announcement, however, was calculated to dash such hopes in this case. It was considered significant that the communique listed only one more survivor than the number given last Friday in the preliminary report of the torpedoing. Moreover, the fact that casualties had been reported in detail apparently waa evidence that the need for short-wave silence had ended, so far as this particular convoy was concerned.

Writers Association of America announced today. The stocky first basrman. Tvhtve blasting bat and skillful deffiulve play led the Dodger* to their first [x-nnant In 21 years, carried off the highest individual honor in hla league without a route-it.

In runs batted in with 120. &nd pushed the Dodgers over many humps along the pennant trail. •But hi* batting average was only .285 and It is rare—almost unheard of — for the most valuable player award to RO to a hitter below the .300 bracket. Therefore the universal recognition given Camllll was a tremendous tribute to his leadership and all-around play. The 33-year-old Californlan, who owns a small ranch near Lay Ion- ville, Calif., and Is the proud father of five children, la a veteran -of nine years' service In the National league, and always has been considered one of its leading first basemen. He batted .315 and .339 in 1935 and 1930 for the Phillies. ReWr Roekie of Year ReUer was the rookie of the year In the National league. He became the first freshman in history to win a major league batting crown, and besides hitting at a .343 clip, he also led the league In triples with 17, in doubles with 40 and total hits with 1S4. • Wyatb, a genlaL32Tyear r ofl from the American league, was .Brooklyn's pitching ace with 22 victories and 10 defeats. Altogether, seven Dodgers were given ranking somewhere in the voting for the most valuable player and five others were Included in the honorable mention list.

Since the crippled backflelrl lacks the zing to get thofp touchdo\vm. the massive line simply digs in and holds the other side to the necr.ssary few point 1 ;. In five Barnes, three touchdowns have been .scored again-st the Golden Gophers, and only one of them was checked against the line. Actually it was an end run from the five, tried b\ 4 Washington after failing to dent Mlnne-sola's forward wall. Northwestern hurled the greatest aggregation of badcs In the country at the champions' line and wound up with a net of 32 yards in trying to rush the ball. The 'Cats got a touchdown by pawing. The rushing record against the Minnesota forwards to date in the more important Ramrs Ls: Washington 85 yards, Michigan 135 yards and Northwestern 32 yards. Possessing ft great last barrier like that. Bierman makes his fragile backfleld do the business with a few points. But he was get-ting plenty desperate against Northwestern and finally hud to concoct the hocus pocus that put over midget Bud Hlg- glai on a play minus huddle and shift. By Tom Slier CHICAGO — (AP) — Jim Masker, dean of mldwestern football officials, has seen lots of freaks in 39 years of officiating, but none more unusual than an Incident in last weekend's Missouri-Michigan State game. After Missouri'! first touchdown, Bob Steuber kicked off to State, booting the ball high and into the teeth of a gale-like wind. The ball sailed upfield about 30 yards, then the wind caught it and carried it back toward Missouri. Tackle Norville Wallach caught the ball, giving Missouri a first down on Michigan State's 43. Thus the klckoff actually covered 17 yards and no member of the receiving team ever had even a chance to touch it! "In all my years of officiating I never saw that happen before," said Masker. "Just one of the breaks,, you know." Indiana's sparking sophomore, Billy Hillenbrand, has another disciple. Dr. fiddle Anderson, Iowa coach. "I never saw anything like him," Anderson said. "He stops and starts and stops and starts, and he does both.. *at_ the _samt_time J !L JUllen- brand returned the favor in a measure by saying Iowa's pass defense was great. "It was the best I've ever seen," Bill declared. "Every Indiana man was covered on every play when "I went back to pass." The round-robin battle for s«c- ond place in the Big Ten will begin Saturday between Wisconsin, Michigan and Ohio State. The Badgers will battle.the Bucks at Columbus Saturday and later Ohio State will take on Michigan. The winner doubtless will be the team which winds up with only one conference loss. Michigan having the inside track, because it hat only the test with the Bucks left on iU conference •late. Michigan is idle this week and will play Columbia a week hence. Indiana will try to take advantage of • Northwestern's natural letdown after the Gopher battle and Iowa will invade Champaign to play Illinois. Minnesota probably will get a chance to rest many injured, players against Nebraska while Purdue is host to Michigan State.
