tempts to break through German
lines between the Sea of Azov and
Zaporozhe were frustrated in bit
ter fighting,” the German com
munique said of the savage fignt
; in lower Russia.
A broadcast by the mysterious
underground radio station At
lantique also announced the evac
uation by German troops of Dne
propetrovsk, metallurgical city in
the upper corner of the Dnieper
loop. The city already has been
flanked by Soviet forces on the
west. Other Soviet units reached
its east bank suburbs weeks ago.
The Berlin bulletin announced
' belatedly that German troops Fri
day night had withdrawn to new
' positions in the western outskirts
of Melitopol. Moscow announced
1 the city’s complete capture Sat
: urday after an 11-day street fight
: which opened the way to the Cri
’ mea, 70 miles to the south.
The Russian newspaper Izvestia
said: “Not one live German re
- mains in the town* The dead ones
■ can be counted by the thousands.
t A German broadcast used the
f word “steamroller” for the first
- time in describing the massive
Soviet onslaught inside the Dniep
1 er loop, and the German high
command also disclosed that an
other Soviet army on the central
front far to the north had been
attacking German lines before
Vitebsk and Orsha for the third
successive day.
Allied military men in Moscow
termed the Soviet break-through
at Melitopol one oi me iiueat xvuo
sian feats of the war. The guid
ing hand of Premier Joseph Sta
lin, as a master military strat
egist, was detected in that
stroke, as it was in the great
Stalingrad victory of last winter.
Moscow reports said the Ger
mans already were getting pan
icky' in the Crimea, and that the
German high command now is
compelled to make a quick de
cision whether to order its men
to stand or flee from that penin
The Crimean garrison has been
estimated at 100,000. Its exact
strength is not known because the
Germans sent thousands of wound
ed soldiers there to recuperate
and also sapped the garrison by
dispatching whole divisions north
ward where they were overwhelm
ed at Melitopol.
Should the Germans try to hold
the Crimea they will be surround
ed, then exposed to both land as
saults by Col. Gen. Feodor Tol
bukhin’s army hitting across the
Perekop isthmus and to amphi
bious optrations on all sides by
the Soviet Black sea naval forces.
Even if the Germans decide to
abandon the Crimea their dilem
ma still is a black one. They can
try to hold the lower Dnieper from
its Black sea mouth n.ear K1^‘
son northeastward to Nikopol. Bu
that is an extremely dangerouspo
sit;,,,, in view of the Kussian
scythe swinging down behind them
inside the Dnieper loop.

river, much less tenable th<m the
broad Dnieper which the Germa

RICHMOND, Va„ Oct. 24—(A»)—
Ralph H. Daughton, of Norfolk,

After discussing various busi

the eve of the annual major-minor
league baseball meetings there.

Washington Redskins
Beat Cardinals, 13-7
WASHINGTON, Oct. 24.—(iP)—
The Washington Redskins, with
Stingin’ Sammy Baugh and Andy
Farkas in the starring roles, struck
twice for scores in the third pe
riod today to turn back a stub
born Chicago Cardinal eleven, 13
to 7, before 35,540 spectators.
Held at bay throughout a listless
first half, the champion Redskins
started rolling shortly after the in
termission to register their third
win of the season and protect their
position at the top of the profes
sional gridiron standings.
Farkas, the old-time Detroit
University flash, took the second
half kickoff in the end zone and
dashed 86 yards before he was
knocked down. Farkas fumbled
but Steve Slivinski recovered for
the Redskins. Baugh promptly
passed to Joe Aguirre for a
touchdown. Bob Masterson split
the uprights for the extra point.

touchdown, set up another and
booted three extra points and a
13 yard field goal.
With Tony Candeo, their league

yards, and the Packers totaled 21
completions for 326 yards through
the air.
Conversely, the Detroit passing
^game backfired as the Packers
turned nine interceptions, a leag

ties. Aside from Hutson’s scores,
Lou Brock dove over twice from
the one-yard line and Chet Adams
kicked a 22-yard field goal.

UAlVii' 1-iILIL, va., UCl. 1 ■—
Notching its fourth victory in as
many starts, the Bainbridge, Md.,
Naval Training Station eleven
rode roughshod over the Camp
Lee Travelers by a 49-0 score be
fore 12,000 fans at Lee Field here
With Bill De Correvont, of
Northwestern fame, pitching, and
A1 Vandeweghe, and Charlie Jus
tice catching, the Sailors unleash
ed a devastating aerial attack. On
the ground Harvey Johnson and
Jimmy Gatewood paced a driving
attack from the “T” formation
with which the Leemen were able
to cope only in the minutes of
play. Vandeweghe and Johnson
were stars of William and Mary’s
Southern Conference chantpions
last season.
A 15-yard clipping penalty that
put the ball on the three-yard
marker played an important part
in-the first Bainbridge touchdown.
Another drive a few minutes later
was halted by stubborn defense on
the part of the Lee forward wall,
and Johnson kicked a 38-yard
field goal.
After that, however, the Sailors
were able to register six-pointers
almost at will.
The battered Lee squad was vir
tually impotent on attack except
for some effective hurling of for
ward passes by Generoso Laluna,
and line-bucking by Earl Rowe.
Howard Groat was outstanding
defensively for Lee.
After taking a 10-0 first-quarter
lead, Bainbridge tallied again be
fore the end of the opening period
when a 52-yard drive was climax
ed by a touchdown pass from Hil

Powerful Great Lakes
Downs Marquette Club
MILWAUKEE, Oct. 24.—UP)—An
outmanned Marquette team which
stopped Great Lakes cold for one
period went down without a gurgle
today when the Sailors turned
loose a third quarter punitive ex
pedition, administering a 41 to 7
drubbing before 15.000 homecom
ers at the Hilltop Stadium.
Bewildered by a powerful ground
assault, led by Steve Lach, Duke
All-American, Marquette saw the
Sailors push two counters across
in the opening minutes, but then
dug in and held the Tars without
a first down in the second period
while piling up six themselves.
Hal Eigner put them into the scor
ing column with a plunge of 25
seconds before the half ended.
On top at the intermission, 13
to 7, the Sailors tore loose with
Steve Sitko, Steve Juzwick and
Dewey Proctor spearheading three
touchdown marches, while pinning
the Hilltoppers offensive efforts
behind the midstripe.

The girls demonstrated more
hazardous duties—towing targets
for actual anti-aircraft gunnery.
Towing requires special flying
skills—precise flight in turns,
holding altitude and speed in a
prescribed pattern over the guns.
Two kinds of targets are used
here—cloth sleeve targets about
33 inches in diameter and 25 feet
long, and flag targets 35 feet long
and six feet wide.
An enlisted man usually goes
along in the plane to unreel the
target, attached to the plane by

“The Wasp are doing a man’s
job, and a good one,” an attrac
tive, blonde, brown-eyed woman in
trimly tailored slack suit of blue
told visiting newspaper women.
A celebrated pilot herself, she
had trained them for their new
war tasks.
a-ne is jacquenne uocnran, wno
last July was designated director
of women pilots for the Army Air
Forces and special assistant to the
assistant chief of air staff.
Originally 50 Wasp came here
last July on a sort of experimental
basis at the suggestion of Gener
al Henry H. Arnold, chief of the
Army Air Forces.
Miss Cochran told him the girls
should be able to do three jobs
well—target-towing, tracking mis
sions and instructing. They work

ground forces under guidance oi
Col. Lovick L. Stevenson, com

“He considers the experiment
a great success,” Miss Cochran
told new newspaper women, “and
within the next 60 days there will
be a total of 50 Wasp in target
“The Wasp are doing essential,
unglamorous hard work. We are
here as a small cog m an extreme
ly important wheel of the entire
Of the first 50 Wasp who came
here, 15 have been transferred else
where—and two have been killed
in crashes.
Miss Cochran (in private life Mrs.
Floyd Odium) first worked with
the Army in 1941 when she was
asked to join the staff of the Army
Air Forces ferrying command to
analyze the problems involved in
use of women pilots for moving
trainer aircraft.
She was familiar with the work
’ of women pilots in England, hav
ing recruited a group of 25 Amer
ican women pilots for Britain's Air
Transport Auxiliary.
By the fall of 1942 the way was
cleared for two experimental pro
jects for women pilots in this coun
try, one in operations, one in train
Pilot training was carried under
AAF Flying Training Command,
with Miss Cochran in charge. Fer
rying operations were under the
Air Transport command and the
First Women’s Auxiliary Ferry
ing Squadron was based at Wil
mington, Del., under direction of
Mrs. Nancy Harkness Love, also
well versed in ferrying operations.
The first school for training wo
men pilots was opened at Houston,
Tex., and the first class was grad
uated last April. This training takes
about six months. Since April a
new class has been graduated and
a new class enrolled each month.
Later a second school was open
ed at Avenger Field, Sweetwater,
Tex., and now training of women
pilots is concentrated there. The
school is operated by civilians un
der War Department contracts, and
its graduates, although under Army
regulations, are civilians.
The Wasp have Civil Service
status. Trainees receive $15G a
month base pay, the graduates
$250 The standard $6 per diem is
paid them on assignments away
from bases. At their base they pay
for their rooms in barracks as
signed to them, and for their
meals at the officers’ mess. Most
of their approved uniform apparel,
now in production, will be furnish
By the end of this year there
will be about 600 Wasp, with 500
more in training.
There are about 4,000 women
in the country who have more
than 35 hours’ flying time- not
counting those in process of log
ging that total required of a Wasp
applicant, or those coming into
the age range of 18 1-2-34.
Camp Davis is a bleak Army
post about 30 miles from Wilming
ton, N. C. There isn’t much in the
way of diversion except a couple
of movies and the officers' club, to
which the Wasp, though civilians,
are admitted.
So the Wasp’s spare time is spent
fixing up their rooms with their
beaverboard walls in the unpainted
barracks. On every door is the
Disney Fifinella (female gremlin)
designed especially for the Wasp.
Inside one finds chintz md cre
tonne drapes, bright cotton rugs,
mirrors, bows, bookshelves and,
everywhere, pictures of airplanes
and maps.
The girls wear the zoot suits
when they go up, but generally
they wear sleekly tailored khaki
trousers and shirts topped with
leather jackets.
The women pilots have their
own lounge which they call the

Georgia Tech Still Thread
In Southeastern
ATLANTA, Oct. 24.—(JP)—As.
sured of at least an even break in
Southeastern Football Conferenca
gridiron competition, Louisiana
State's Tigers today caught an
over-the-shoulder glimpse of only
two teams with a chance of catch
ing them, then looked in the di
rection of the post season bids.
The Tigers, boasting a sprinkling
of experienced men, principally
big Steve Van Buren, their point
packin’ papa, enjoy victories in
the only two conference games
played this season.
Both were scored over the ex
clusively teen-aged Georgia Bull
dogs, whose suprisingly early-sea
son bite has now been reduced t»
the size of their bark. Yesterday
at Columbus. Ga„ the Tigers
made the Bulldogs yelp with a 27
6 beating.
Georgia Tech in a twilight bat
tle with Navy at Baltimore, Md.f
kissed some of its own Navy
trainees goodbye after they and
the boys they leave behind, still a
threat, had suffered a 28-14 defeat.
Tulane, for whom five trainees
also were playing their final game
before scheduled transfers, sent
this off with a 12-6 victory over
Southern Methodist. It was the
Green Wave's second win in a row
after dropping the opener.
The remaining conference slate
of the L. S. U. Tigers, whose rec
ord shows four wins and one set
back for the season, pits them
against Tech a week from Satur
day and against Tulane later. Tu
lane also has an engagement with
Tech, now defeated twice in five
starts, and the annual battle be
