Bulgarian Premier
Works to Keep Hold
After Death of King
By the Associated Press.
ISTANBUL, Aug. 30. — Bul
garia, unsettled by the death ol
King Boris, presented a poten
tial problem to Hitler today as
Premier Bogdan Philov soughl
to reconcile conflicting elements
In the nation which made his
position none too secure.
The five-member regency which,
according to German broadcasts,
will rule in behalf of the boy King
Simeon II. apparently is dominated
by an anti-German, pro-British
church leader—the Metropolitan of
Sofia. Stefan, who has protested
Gestapo activity in Bulgaria and
against anti-Semitic laws passed
during the last two years.
The Queen Mother Ioanna, second
member of the regency, also is re
garded as decidedly anti-German.
Prince Kvril. brother of the late
King, and Philov are both pro
German, but far from strong, while
the fifth regent is a politically un
known Supreme Court justice.
Military Cabinet Expected.
Composed by such diverse ele
ments, it seems highly unlikely tha1
this regency will be able to prevenl
the orphaned Philov government
from collapsing and being replace!
with a military cabinet.
In that event the leader of the
government probably would be
selected from the military hierarchy
which is enthusiastically pro-Ger
man. Such a government doubtless
would be pliant to German desires
and might break off relations with
Russia and agree to assume the chief
burden of the defense of Greece or
even participate in the Russian war.
The possibility of a popular upris
ing which would overthrow the
monarchy and establish a Repub
lican or Socialist government under
the sway of Russia—on whom the
Bulgarians have traditionally looked
as a friend^-was not entirely dis
counted here.
However, such a revolt was con
sidered possible only if the Germans
are unable to send sufficiently
strong forces into Bulgaria or to the
borders to keep the situation in
Minister Secs Gestapo Chief.
In any event, the situation ap
parently will demand close watching
by Hitler.
The first evidence of increased
German influence in Bulgaria quick
ly followed the death of Boris when
Minister of the Interior Peter
Gabrovsky twice conferred with the
Gestapo chief in Bulgaria upon
means of keeping order within the
First reports indicated that the
death of Boris provoked consterna
tion throughout Bulgaria.
(The British radio reported
yesterday that crowds had staged
peace demonstrations in the
streets of Sofia and said the Ger
man Embassy in the Bulgarian
capital had been stoned. The
broadcast said Boris’ death had
precipitated an internal crisis
and that communications with
other countries had been sus
pended. The peRCfe demonstratofs'
were said to have shouted for
Philov’s resignation.)
The Bulgarian public appears to
fear that the nation now will quickly
fall completely into the hands of the
Germans. While there have been no
signs of serious disturbance.?, the
conferences between Gabrovsky ar.d
the Gestapo chief apparently indi
' cate the government's fears.
Hitler Sends Sympathy
To Premier and Queen
LONDON, Aug. 30 bP).—'The Ber
lin radio said yesterday that Hitler
had sent telegrams of sympathy
to Premier Philov and Queen Ioanna
of Bulgaria following the death of
King Boris.
The broadcast, recorded by the
Associated Press, said Hitler sent
this telegram to the Premier:
“I would like to convey to your
excellency on the occasion of the
death of his majesty King Boris
mine and the German people's most
cordial sympathy.
"I know that you are closely
linked to your sovereign in his his
toric mission for the future of Bul
garia as a faithful counsellor. I
feel with you deeply the heavy loss
which Bulgaria has suffered.
“Please express my condolences
also to the royal Bulgarian cabinet.”
The following telegram, the broad
cast said, went to the widowed
"The moving news of the death of
his majesty King Boris has given
me great sorrow. Bulgaria loses in
King Boris a sovereign who led the
history of his people with admirable
courage and circumspect wisdom.
"I myself lose in him a faithful
friend and ally whose memory will
be forever highly honored by myself
and the German people. I ask your
majesty to accept mine and the
whole German people's deeply felt
and sincere sympathy for the royal
house and the Bulgarian nation.”

How an attack dog disarms an enemy, by seizing the hand holding a pistol, will be demon
strated by war-trained canines and Quartermaster Corps specialists during the Army show start
ing September 9 on the Washington Monument grounds. —U. S. Army Photo.
There are 40.000 dogs fighting, or
being trained to fight, for Uncle
j Sam.
Trained from 6 to 13 weeks, dogs
and handlers become inseparable.
The dogs are used for sentry, at
tack, first aid, messenger and sledge
teams, according to their intelli
gence, strength, speed and dispo
sition. All except the sledge dogs,
which are bought, are donated to
the Government. They are trained
at Front Royal, Va., and four other
remount depots.
Several hundred are overseas,
thousands more are to follow. The
canines are from 1 to 5 years old.
Dogs with good dispositions hunt
for wounded on the battlefield,
bring rescue squads to the scene. A
squeeze on the neck may tell a dog
not to bark and remain still. A pull
on the ear, trainers say, may mean
"go get him.” The attack dog is
a killer. If not brought down with
a first shot, his assault is swift and
overwhelming. Barking dogs make
ideal sentries, where the enemy
'Back the Attack' Rehearsals
To Get Under Way Sept. 6
Three days of rehearsals will
precede the Army's “Back the At
tack" show which opens September
9 on the Washington Monument
grounds, as a feature of the Treas
ury’s Third War Loan drive.
Approximately 1,500 Army officers
and enlisted personnel have received
orders to report on Sunday and
begin rehearsals on September 6.
Beginning tomorrow night, the
grounds will be floodlighted to per
mit night work to rush installations
for the show.
Potomac Electric Power Co. elec
trical crews today were putting the
•finishing touches on installation of
a transformer.
Two other developments today
: were the installs tiorv. of a 30-ton,
-locomotive “and" military - railway
equipment on the grounds facing
Fourteenth street, and announce
ment that the Army's fog machine,
a spectacular veteran of overseas
operations, will be included in the
huge exhibit.
The locomotive was to be hauled
by trailer to the Monument Grounds
and there rolled down to steel rails
through a "cribbing” operation,
without aid of a crane. The engine
is painted a battleship gray.
The Army's M-I mechanical
smoke generator, trailer mounted, is
to be shown here publicly for the
first time. Spewing jets of snow

Strike Vote Called Off
By Hosiery Workers
By thp Associated Press.
j coast-to-coast strike vote under the
Smith-Connally Act, scheduled to
begin today, was called off last night
by the American Federation of
Hosiery Workers <CIO>, following a
conference with members of two
employers’ associations and Peter J.
Manno, Federal conciliator.
Fred G. Krivonos, acting regional
director of the National Labor Re
lations Board, who was to have su
pervised the vote, said "all arrange
ments for the Smith-Connally se
cret ballot scheduled to begin Au
gust 30 among 12,000 employes in
the hosiery industry from coas: to
coast are cancelled.”
Members of the Full-Fashioned
Hosiery Manufacturers of America
said the Keystone Hosiery Manu
facturers' Association agreed with
union officials to extend their cur
rent contract, due to expire August
31, for 15 more days.
Union and management officials
i also agreed, on invitation of the La
i bor Department, to go to Washing
ton Wednesday in an effort to iron
out their differences in regard to a
new contract.
Members of the union had voted
I Saturday in favor of striking for
I their original demands.
The union withdrew its original
strike notice filed July 30 with the
NLRD, the War Labor Board and
the Labor Department.
Under the Smith-Connally Act,
such withdrawal means that, in the
event agreement is not reached by
September 15, the whole procedure
leading up to another strike vote
must be repeated.
Few Machines, More Labor

crossings, and the dust cloud of
American Indians, the M-I smoke
maker has saved countless American
lives by rendering enemy fire inef
fective through its low-hanging
mist, the War Department said. It
is scheduled for exhibit in the
Chemical Warfare Service area.

British Eager to Push
Air Offensive, Says
Publisher McLean,
By the Associated Press.
PHILADELPHIA. Aug. 30 —Robert
McLean, president of the Associated
Press and of the Evening Bulletin,
just back after a month in England
and Scotland, said today the British,
confident of victory, are eager to
press the Allied air offensive to the
fullest lest the Germans develop an
effective defense against bombers.
“Unless our American Air Force in
the European theater is built up to
full strength at this time we run
the risk of Germany finding the de
fensive tactic or weapon which will
deprive us of our present oppor
tunity,” he said.
Will Lessen Invasion Cost.
“The British remember how they
kept Germany from cashing in on
a golden chance of victory in the
other World War; German sub
marines had the British supply lines
strangled so that Britain was within
two weeks of defeat. Then the
British discovered the means of
coping with U-boats.” Encouraged
as they are by the Allied bombings,
the British do not believe that
bombings alone can defeat the Axis,
he said.
“But they are convinced,” he add
ed, “that the bombings will lessen
materially the cost of invasion of
the continent because of the de
struction of enemy equipment, the
destruction of factories which
manufacture that equipment and
the disrupting of lines of communi

same intensity as did the British
fighters against the Luftwaffe in

ing as if the fate of Germany de
pends upon them, and quite likely
it does.”

the invitation of the British Min
istry of Information. He returned
Saturday night by Clipper. His
comments were reported today by
Carl W. McCardle of the Bulletin
staff after an interview.
