'jngs the total of enemy losses to 39. according to the latest reports UU1UUC iicmu Distant gunfire was heard from the center of London. Bright flashes were seen in the distance before the all-clear signal Jas given in the London area just before midnight. Up to 9 p.m. (3 p.m., EST), the air ministry announced, a total of 39 German and 11 British planes had been shot down in air fighting which started with sporadic raids ad grew steadily more intense through the night. Even as searchlights swept the skies over the British capital and the deadly hum of airplanes could -be heard from the outskirts, the sudden silencing of German radio stations at Bremen, Munich, Leip zm and Berlin indicated that Brit ,sh bombers were repaying the Nazi visits. Of the 11 admittedly lost British planes, the air ministry said ‘‘it is known that three of our pilots are sale." British <air fighters, battling new waves of German air raiders over southern England, had shot down 34 of today's bag in one fight when a Nazi squadron attempted to cross the Dorset coast “in force." With four British planes admit tedly missing today, their own losses rose to 23 for the weekend but the air ministry communique said the crews of all but eight British planes — seven Saturday and one Sunday—were safe. Berlins’ Figures (In Berlin, however, authorita tive sources said only 24 Nazi planes were lost for both days— 20 Saturday and four SSunday— against a total oi 85 British planes shot down.) The new Nazi air assaults came, as London extinguished the em bers and cleared the debris from Saturday’s first widespread night air raid on th emetropolitan area. Although one blaze in the heart of London shot flames 150 feet into the air, silhouetting the great dome of St. Paul’s cathedral and illum inating a large area of the city, the damage was assessed official ly as “very slight.” Defenders stood ready to repel any new Nazi air attack on this capital of empire but the. Germans contented themselves during the daylight hours with isolated sor ties on other parts of England and Wales. After another seeming lull in Germany’s luftwaffe war, howev er, the attack intensified after nightfall with a first wave of 50 German planes reported over the southeast coast. The Nazi bomb ers started several first but dam age’was said to have been slight. Anti-aircraft batteries went into action along with Royal Air Force planes. 1 Another Battle Another battle was reported to night over the southeast coast and two Nazi Messerschmitts were said to have been shot down. Shortly afterward, planes believed to be German were reported over Wales and another southwestern English region. British bombers, meanwhile, carried out extensive night bomb ing assignments Saturday against Germany and Italy, again rousing Swiss ire for crossing over Switz erland to and from their Italian objectives. Frankfurt, Ludwigshaven and Stuttgart, as well as “many air dromes in France, Belgium, Hol land and Germany” were men tioned in an air ministry communi que as targets of the British ight raiders. A later air ministry statement added that for the third successive night, British bombers also had attacked German long-range gun positions around Cape Gris Nez and that coastal command aircraft had "spotted” for British artillery firing against Nazi gun emplace ments between Boulogne and Ca lais, on the French channel coast. At Ludwigshave, it said, the British bombers scored "several hits” on a nitrogen pplant and ob served heavy explosions. Several small fires broke out also after an attack on a synthetic oil plant at Frankfurt, it reported, and anoth er fire after bombs dropped on an electric power station near Co logne. Besides 20 Nazi-occupied air dromes in Holland, Belgium and France, it said, British fliers also raided an airdrome under con struction in the Dutch city of Haar lem. In the attacks on Germany, it said, the Daimler-Benz plant at Stuttgart, “one of the most im portant armament and armored car factories in western Germa ny,” was “methodically” bombed for more than an hour. “Fire soon broke out, as more bombs fell, and spread rapidly un til the main group of buildings was seen to be blazing,” it added. “As the flames spread, a series of heavy explosions was observed. One of the biggest explosions of all occurred 10 minutes after the aircraft had left for home and fires still burning fiercely in many parts of the plant were visible from 60 miles away.” 1 FRENCHMEN ENTER SUEZ AREA ARMY (Continued From Page One) as their British comrades-in-alrms “None of us can understand why France gave up this fight,” de clared on French officer. “We can here to go on fighting alongside Great Britain for we know that only in her victory can there ever again be a free France.” Il» starring CLAUDETTE COLBERT HENRY FONDA Willi From the great novel \ byWalterD. \ Edmonds \ Edna May Oliver Eddie Collins, John Carradine -Added Latest NEWS Events At 11:15-1:13-3:15-5:15-7:15-9:15 Feature 15 Minutes Later (Shows 1:15-3:14-5:13-7:12-9:11) DYNAMIC DRAMA!

At Dover, DNB elaborated, nazi bombers dived 3,000 feet through the clouds and scattered 70 bombs on British troop concentrations. They encountered no resistance, the agency said, and reported that the German fliers, zooming back to the cover of the clouds, saw fires breaking out below.

Chiding the English for “being jubilant because the British Isles have not yet been destroyed, Gay da said he could assure them that the German offensive, like the Ital ian, “hardly has started.” "Germany’s lightning war has not yet begun and everything which has happened up to now in the British skies and seas are nothing but methodical, necessary preparation,” he said. “Germany and Italy are not ac customed to communicate in ad vance to the British their inten tions, the time and the form of their actions. “They strike by surprise with means least expected but with forces mathematically certain. . . It will not be many days before the British will find themselves up against some new surprise. “This is a calm foreword we give the English, together with ad vice not to be in a hurry to unfurl their flags.” The Italian high command an nounced meanwhile that British planes, which it accused of flying across Switzerland, dropped bombs and leaflets in three raids on Lom bardy and Piedmont, in northern Italy. Two civilians were reported killed and dwellings damaged at Mariano Commenzo. Other bombs were dropped near Anione and in the outskirts of Allesandria, where a farmhouse was said to have been set afire. The high command said four British planes and one Italian bomber were shot down in raids yesterday on Malta. 1 ALIEN REGISTRATION' COOPERATION ASKED (Continued From Page One) loyal behavior of a few.
