The Germans shot clouds of flakj
into the sky over the oil targets
8r,d also sent up a few fighters in
this area. The American escort of
Thunderbolts and Lightnings kept
enemy planes from reaching the
bomber formations, however.
Flak over the rail yards, which
were bombed by instrument, was
officially described as ranging from
meager to moderate.
These blows topped a 36 - hour;
serial offensive which left the Reich i
erunting from an averageof 10 tons:
ol bombs a mirute.
Nearlv 22.000 tons of explosives j
v,Cre spread over Germany in the,
day and a half scourging by 11.000
Dianes which flew on seven major
missions and some 4.000 Sorties in
support of the six Allied armies
advancing on the Western Front.
The wind-up blows made Novem
ber the greatest operational winter
month of the war. _
Pailway yards crowded with sup
plies for Nazi frontline troops also
were oownded in the Saarbrucken
region, directly in the path of Lt
Gen. George S. Patton’s Third
Army. ' ,

Lawmakers Irked By Luce
In Tour Of European Front
LONDON, Nov. 30.— UFl —The
publicity-shy House Military Com
mittee shoved off for France to
day with its male members won
dering how they could combat
Clare Boothe Luce’s penchant for
hitting the headlines.
To the battlefields of the con
tinent they carried a feud of their
own. The smouldering resent
ment of several representatives
about two episodes of their stay
in Britain, both involving Mrs.
Luce, threatened momentarily to
disturb the serenity of their mis
sion.
Mrs. Luce first upset the mas
culine equanimity in connection
with a “gentlemen’s agreement”
—in the words of acting Chairman
Matt Merritt CD-NY)—to let a
spokesman issue all the state
ments during the committee s in
spection tour.
The comely Connecticut lawmak
er was reported to have declared
the Army had ordered her not to
talk. This, the Army denied. Then
Mrs. Luce had a few words to say
about the current cigaret short
age. She was against it.
But the annoyance within the
committee turned to something
near to open anger yesterday. She
abandoned the committee tempo
rarily for a short flight in a Fort
ress while her colleagues plodded
through the mud on an inspection
tour of three air bases.
This cut the other committee
members to the Congressional
quick.
Merritt said he hadn’t been con
sulted about Mrs. Luce’s inde
pendent sortie.
Doris Duke Left Out

NEW YORK, Nov. 30.—(A1)—Do
ris Duke Cromwell, often called
the richest girl in the world, and
James H. R. Cromwell, from
whom she got a Reno divorce,
were left out of the newest edition
of the New York Social Register,
released today.
Also missing was the name of
John F. Harjes. He was a friend
of Wayne Lonergan, playboy who
was convicted earlier in the year
of murdering his wealthy wife.
Harjes’ name was mentioned in
Lonergan’s trial. Mrs. Harjes’
name remained in the register.
The couple now are divorced.

land to Switzerland, the Germans
were counterattacking frequentlj
and hard. This stiffening resistance
slowed the previously spectaculai
adance of Lt. Gen George S. Pat
ton's Third Army on the Saai
front, limiting its gains to an aver
age of about a mile.
Patton’s 95th Infantry Division
alone hurled back 10 German coun
ter-attacks in 24 hours, but pushed
on a mile to within three miles
of Saarlautern, midway between
Merzig and Saarbrucken.
Troops of Lt. Gen. Alexander
M. Patch’s U. S. Seventh army,
driving toward the German bor
der north of Strasbourg, approach
ed within a mile and a half ol
the important French city of Ha
genau and threatened it with a
flanking push on the west. Hage
nau is 14 1-2 miles from the Ger
man frontier.
The German radio reported that
Nazi troops were withdrawing
from Hagenau. but a dispatch
fom the AP’s Thoburn Wiant on
that front tonight declared the Na
zis sti 1 were resisting bitterly.
“But the report is interesting,”
he added, ‘‘because it now seems
that the Germans are reconciled to
withdrawal under pressure to the
Siegfried-Rhine line, where they
will try to last out the winter.”
