' Land and river batteries shelled ; the capital and ariplanes made bombing raids throughout the " day, the Domei news agency reported.

It was reported in foreign quarters ' here that the Japanese, tallowing tne -capture of Nanking, intended to occupy the remaining important ports of China, including Canton, Amoy, , Pakhoi, Foochow and Swatow.

J Japanese asserted thousands .oi Chinese troops were crossing -the river to the west, .blowing up muni tions dumps on tne way. Military sources indicated tne Jap nnsi wore in nn hurry to enter the capital because they did not desire heavy non-combatant casualties. Chinkiang, key Chinese city in Chi nese defenses SO miles down 'tne Yangtze river from Nankin?, was reported in flames after Japanese war ships successfully broke through the Chinese river blockade lartner down the rive rat Kiangyin. Jananese sources said Chinese in- rendiarists were responsible for -the fires because they had adopted a "scorched earth" policy of not leaving anything useable to the Japanese. Some reports said tne Japanese high command was preparing to urge General Tang Sheng-Chih, commander of the Chinese forces in Nanking, to surrender with all his 300,000 Chinese troops in the Nankin;-Wuhu area. v' United States embassy officials and 13 American and a few other foreigners remained in the city.

Contrary to previous Chinese denials that Germany, -through Ambassador Oscar Trautmann, had offered to act as mediator, the dispatch said that Germany had offered her good offices to arrange an armistice and settlement of all outstanding questions. "While appreciative of the friendliness which promoted the German government to make this proposal," the note added, "the Chinese government remains firm in carrying out a policy of determined resistance unless Japan shows sincerity in respecting China's territorial and administrative integrity."

I. 0. f J roup Favorable Hut Federation Is Standing Pat Portland, Ore., Dec' 8 LP)Em-ployes of the Inman-Poulsen Lumber Co. prepared lo ballot tomorrow in an unprecedented state-conducted election to determine whether the American Federation of Labor or the committee for Induxrlal organization shall represent them In collective bargaining. The election Is without nrcceden' in thut It is state-sponsored, ordered by Gov. Charles H. Martin, in the hope it will break a Jurisdictional labor deadlock that has stifled local business for nearly four months and since a union of the C. I. 0. already has been certified by the national labor relations board as bargaining agencv for the mill's workers. Under federal law authority for conducting such elections is vested in the NLRB. Some time ago, the NLRB after a series of open hearings, granted jurisdiction over Inman-Poulsen's workers to the C. I. O. International Woodworkers of America. No election umong the mill's employes was ever held and the A. F. of L.'s brothel hoods of carpenters ond Joined hus objected to such a vote. Board I Silent Attitude of the NLKB toward the election remained unknown. The board's regional director. Charles W. Hope, left Seattle late yesterday for Portland, but his office declined to comment us to whether his trip wus an indication the NLRB would be represented Thursday. The Iward sevprul weeks ago snid the C. I. O. had consented to the holding of a physical election, and asserted the board was willing to hold such provided both unions involved would abide by the NLRB vote, and provided mill owners would reojien immediately following the election. The A. F. ofIL, union declined, however, to ourfieinate in anv election in which authority of the NLRB in Jurisdictional disputes would be recognized. Discussing Martin's election plans, a C. I. O. spokesman, Don F. Helmick, said his group "welcomed the op-IHirtunity of workers to express their wishes in secret ballot without intimidation." He questioned whether the (overnor's plun would be effective, howpvrr, whpn he said the gov- prnor foiled to outline any powers vested in him and not in the NLRB. A. F. L Stands Pat An A. F. of L. spokesman, Frank Chapman, general representative of the brotherhood group, said: We II never agree lo C. t. O. If ihp workers wisli to vote, thai is their own per sonal affair, but it is a brotherhood affnir to spe that 11 (the Inman-Poul sen bill) is operated A. F. of L." A thnuuh the governors Plan stir red but little warmth in the ranks of the federation, public support rallied behind Martin's plan for ending the labor warfare wheih has tied up 10 Ian c sawmills in the Portland area since August.
