U. S, Booklets 'Bomb'
France With Promise Of Arms for Patriots Third Million Carries Word of America's All-out War Effort By JOHN C. HENRY. Bringing directly to "the pa triots” of Occupied France the assurance of President Roosevelt that the United Nations will some day furnish them the weapons for revolt against Axis oppression, Royal Air Force fly ers have completed a second se ries of American pamphlet bomb ings over the European continent, the White House revealed today. First of these offensive operations was announced on Japuary 9 when it was said that about 2.000,000 leaflets had been dropped over France. Today, It was announced that an additional 1.000.000 of this initial pamphlet had since been dis tributed and about 400,000 of a sec ond and differently worded docu ment has been scattered over six Industrial and waterfront areas. Explosives for Germany Hinted. German territory proper has not been ‘'invaded" In this fashion, it was pointed out, and it was implied further that eventual bombardment of the Reich will be by explosives rather than by words. ** For completion of the first “bomb ing" operation, the American and British authorities assigned another 630.000 pamphlets to the Paris area, supplementing 1.380.000 which had been dropped there in the first series of raids. In addition, 246.000 have since been dropped in the Bnuages sector and 144,000 around Dijon. Lille was intensively "bombed” on the first occasion by 600.000 leaflets. For the second pamphlet, written mostly out of President Roosevelt's address to Congress on the $tate of the Union on January 6, officers directing the distribution assigned 12.000 to the St. Malo area, 72.000 to Brest. 6.000 to Cherbourg, 276,000 to Rennes. 13.500 to St. Nazaire and 18.000 to Guingamp-Lundeac. All are close to the Atlantic sea board strip of Occupied France— where sabotage and unrest among the French population might be turned to greater advantage of the United cause. Address Gave Figures. Presumably, the pamphlet ex tracted from the President's annual message the statistical measure ments of the American war effort— a nation's determination to produce 185 000 airplanes in 1942 and 1943, tanks in the total of 120.000 and shipping amounting to 18,000,000 deadweight tons. The latter, in cidentally, is a figure that can well be understood by the shipping wise populations of the areas se lected. It was In this message, too, that the President promised the world that “we shall earry the attack against the enemy7—we shall hit him and hit him again wherever and whenever we can' r^kchfliim.” For the especial interest of the French and others like them who now are under rule of a conqueror, the President promised in his mes sage and again in leaflet No. 2 that: “Our overwhelming superiority of armament must be adequate to put weapons of war at the proper time Into the hands of those men in the conquered nations who stand ready to scire the first opportunity to revolt against their German and Japanese oppressors, and against the traitors in their own ranks, known by the already famous name pf Quislings. As we get guns to the patriots in those lands, they too will fire shots heard ’round the world.” Emphasize All-out Effort. In making the announcement of this second bombing, the White House pointed out that it is in tended to bring home to the people under occupation that the United States is fully in this war and to emphasize the extent of the effort we are going to make. Since both press and radio of these conquered countries is fully controlled by Axis arms, this type of information is not available through ordinary channels. In addition to the pamphlet dis tribution, constant dissemination of short wave radio broadcasting is being directed at Norway, the Low land countries, the Balkans, France, North Africa and the Far East, it was said. First American experiment of the nature of'the pamphlet distribution came In April. 1917, three weeks after the United States entered World War I. At that time, several hundred thousand copies of Presi dent, Wilson’s address to Congress calling for acceptance of a state of war with Germanv were flown over German territory by British, French and Belgian aviators.

American Flees Singapore on Freighter, Shelled and Bombed by Japanese By GEORGE WELLER. Foreign Correspondent of The Btgr end Chicago Dally Newt. BATAVIA. Feb. 5.—An American oilman has just arrived from Singa pore with a dramatic story of his escape aboard a freighter which was shelled by Japanese artillery as It withdrew from the eastern shore of Johore Strait. He doesn't wish to remember what he saw. He was the only American among 65 refugees crammed aboard the vessel. When three Japanese bombers dis covered the freighter somewhere along the sea route to Java, he found, himself saving victim* of the Jap air attack. Three times in two hours big two-motored bombers attacked the ship from an altitude of 1,000 feet. Sixteen bombs were dropped, but the only one that struck home penetrated the engine room. "A few minutes before the attack,” said the oilman, “a big blond engi neer—a youthful, cheery fellow—had borrowed my stock of American magazines. Then a Chinese scholar, a graduate of Cambridge University, offered to change my submarine -a-1 watch from 11 o'clock onward for hi* ; later trick on deck. "I surrendered the magazines, but kept my own watch. The next thing I was doing was cutting the shoes off the feet of the engineer and leading the young Chinese scholar, frightfully wounded, to a lifeboat. "The Chinaman kept crying In his Cambridge English: ‘I cannot see. I cannot see.’ Finally he crossed his arms before his face. The flesh had left his finger bones. The blast had black ened as well as blinded him. "God knows how the big Dane was able to walk from the engine room after the bomb hit. He was bleed ing all over his body. I didn't know what to say. “I said: ‘Want a drink. Peterson?’ “He just shook his head. His yel low hair and fresh face were burn ed^ black. After the fire was ex tinguished and he had been carried to the lifeboat, he tried once to use his lips. “I couldn't make out at first what he was saying but I finally under stood. i “It was: 'Where have the women been put?’ "He died In a warship’s hospital. Eleven died altogether. Some weren’t hurt badly but they cried for help: Some didn’t cry at all. Two little ap prentice seamen never opened their mouths. "One was 10 years old, the other 14. They were in the Chinese phrase —‘little learner pigeons.’ "The skins of some of the Chinese were peeled by flame from yellow to ghastly white. But these kids were blackened. "One little apprentice died quick ly, but the other tried to crawl on his charred knees to the edge of the lifeboat. There he tried to pull him self over the gunwale into the water —the only cool thing he could see. “Yes, we used picric acid. But both boys died. "How many wounded I put into the lifeboats, I don't know, i re member there were four lifeboats full of bodies spread lengthwise un der the thwarts. We'd lowered the lifeboats to the water's edge when a squadron of warships was sighted over the horizon.’’ • OoByriiht. 1P4’. by chieaio Daily Noam.)

LONDON, reb. 5.—Prime Min ister Churchill told the House of Commons today he would give it a statement at its next meeting on the duties of his Minister of War Production, Lord Beaver brook, named yesterday to that newly created cabinet post. Mr. Churchill also said arrange ments for the British dominions to be represented in the British war cabinet would not bring any change in the United Kingdom membership therein.

Rights Exercised. He said Sir Earle Page, Australian representative in London, for sev eral months past actually has been exercising the rights which Aus tralia wanted in asking for a voice in the formulation of war policy. Canada, New Zealand and the Union* of South Africa were in formed "the same facilities would be available to them if they wished to take advantage of them," the spokesman said.

Committees for the affair were announced, but not the time or place—since the ball will take place only In the imaginations of those who have attended the traditional function to provide funds to help meet emergencies in the lives of Navy men and their families. Mrs. George Pettengill, president of the District Auxiliary and wife of the commandant of the Navy Yard, explained that the phantom ball Is being repeated this year be cause wartime activities would pre vent many ticket holders from at tending the affair even if it were, actually held. Officials of the society cheerfully admitted that during the ticket sale last year several prominent men willingly paid double for the privi lege of not attending a formal af fair during a very busy season. Need for Funds Increases. In the past years the annual Navy Relief Society ball has been a high light of the social season. The huge aall loft at the Navy Yard waa especially decorated and the Navy and Marine Corps Bands furnished the music. The locale of tha ball this year la San Francisco, as one Imagines it, possibly In a blackout. The Navy Relief Society pointed out that the necessity for relief fund expenditures has vastly expanded since this country's entry into war. Mrs. Pettengill said the local auxil iary acted in more than 100 cases during the first month of war. Five years ago the society was called to aid only 200 cases during an entire year. "The purchase of a ticket to tha phantom ball," said Mrs. Harold R. Stark, chairman of the Ball Commit - tee, “will mean assurance to the men on battle station* at aea that their families and loved one* will be cared for at home, no matter what happens. “Officers and enlisted men know that, as long as there are funds in the treasury, their wives and de pendents can call on the Navy Relief Society for aid. I am sure many patriotic and public-spirited citizens will be glad to contribute in this manner to the peace of mind of those other Americans who are risking their lives at sea in defense of the flag." $6,000 Raised Last Year.
