Destroyer Borie Sinks
U-Boat in Atlantic At Ten-Foot Range A new saga of the N»vy was writ ten today as the destruction of a U-boat at 10-foot range by the de stroyer Borie was described. The gallant Borie was mortally wounded while ramming the subma rine. At the same time, the Navy announced the loss of two other de stroyers in the South Pacific—the Henley, some time last month, and the Chevalier, on October 6 after she was severely damaged in a battle and collided with another destroyer in her formation, breaking in two. > A presidential unit citation was awarded to the aircraft carrier Card *nd her escort, including the de stroyer Borie, for destroying more submarines than any naval combat team in history. . The amazing story of the Borie (fisclosed that she fought the At lantic submarine with shotguns, pis tols, empty shell cases and even knives. The destroyer rammed the U-boat and eventually it slid down to Davy Jones’ locker. The Borie, her plates badly damaged, limped away in a heavy storm and carried her crew to safety. Beyond salvage, ahe was sunk by American planes. Commanders Live Here. The Card is commanded by Capt Arnold J. Isbell of 1841 Kilbourne place N.W. The Henley was com manded by Comdr. Carlton R. Adams Of 2500 Q street N.W. Shortly after announcement of the loss of the destroyers, the Army Air Forces announced it has withdrawn from antisubmarine op erations and that the Navy has assumed full responsibility for this duty. The Office of War Informa tion said the Navy had obtained enough planes and trained crews to assume complete responsibility for patrolling the waters. The story of the destroyer Borie was regarded as one of the most amazing in naval history. Another U-Boat Sunk. The Borie already had depth charged one U-boat to the bottom before her last fight, in a campaign that won for her task force the Presidential Unit Citation for hav ing destroyed "more submarines than any team in naval history.” The skipper of the Borie, 30 year-old Lt. Charles H. Hutchins, Terre Haute, Ind., told today of what became at times almost a hand-to-hand fight somewhere in the Atlantic after his ship, trying to ram. rode up and over the sub mersible. "We held him there and started ! shooting with everything we had,” I said Lt. Hutchins. "Some men fired I shotguns: the executive officer! grabbed a tommy gun and started shooting from the bridge; others used pistols, one boy even took a Signal pistol and fired at the sub. "The range was so short one gun couldn't be brought to bear on the submarine. So the gun captain started throwing empty shell cases and he knocked one man off the deck of the sub. Another fellow threw his knite. He said later he'd never been able to stick a knife in the floor before, but. this time he hit’ a man on the sub and knocked him overboard. Called “Biggest Sub.” “One other gun crew couldn't fire because their shield was in the way. They cut’a hole in the dileld and fired right through it.” The action with “the biggest sub I've ever seen." Lt. Hutchins said, lasted about 10 minutes before the U-boat broke loose and attempted to flee. “He went into a tight turn and we couldn't turn close enough to bring our guns on him” Lt. Hutch ins continued. “We attempted to ram again, even though we'd been damaged pretty badly when we ran up over him. He turned the tables | and tried to ram us, but we fired a salvo of depth charges and stopped him about 6 feet from our side." ! Lt. Hutchins then told of contin ued fire at the submarine—one crew man operated a big gun alone, getting the ammunition, loading the gun, then firing; another gun cap tain, when mechanism failed, pulled the latch by hand to fire his gun repeatedly despite a recoil that bat tered his arm “until it was as big as his leg.” Then the sub “sank right in front of us and exploded,” Lt. Hutchins said. None of that appeared in the brief communique on the sinking, issued yesterday, which only recounted that, the Borie, built in 1920, depth- ; charged one submarine to the bot- , tom and when another appeared i rammed it. • All Losses Now Reported. i The Navy announced that the re- ! port on the loss of the destroyers - Henley and Chevalier brought up to • date the list of fighting ships lost in the war against the Japanese, giving the direct lie to fantastic Nipponese claims of destruction wrought among United States naval forces in recent weeks. The Henley, a 1,500-tonner, was announced only as having been funk in the South Pacific in October. The Chevalier, a bigger ship, was damaged in the night battle off Vella LavellR October 6, and col lided with another vessel of her force, breaking in two. She was commanded by Lt. Comdr. George R. Wilson of Long Beach, Calif. The Borie was part of the subma rine-fighting force which included the baby aircraft carrier Card and the destroyers Goff and Barry.1 Their score was not given in detail in the unit citation, but previously the Navy had announced that a force including an unidentified baby flattop had made 11 attacks on sub-, marines, with two definite sinkings and eight more possibles.

Sedition Jury Hears Fritz Kuhn Testily Fritz Kuhn, who was national leader of the German-American Bund until 1939. was taken to Dis trict Court yesterday to testify ] before a special grand Jury in vestigating sedition. The Justice Department is in: charge of the investigation and it has been indicated that many of 33 persons under previous indictment on charges of conspiracy to under mine the morale of the armed forces may be indicted. Last March, Kuhn and 10 of his fellow bundlsts were deprived of their citizenship because of their activities. Kuhn has been interned 1 at Crystal City, Tex., as an enemy rlien since he was denaturalized. i Just what information was sought from Kuhn by the grand jury was not made public. Kuhn was neatly dressed when he; appeared yesterday in a corridor outside the grand jury room at Dis trict Court and seemed to be in a jovial mood. He was not handcuffed, out was closely watched by deputy United States marshals. Baby Carriages Gain British manufacturers of baby carriages are getting added alloca-1 lions of raw materials.

"During the evening we picked up wo submarines, or rather they! sicked us up,” he said. “We'd sig-1 lal the destroyers we were coming! :hrough with the subs behind us.! Hie destroyers would go into action! ind the subs wouldn’t be there any! more.” The best way to beat the sub marines is “by simply wading into the midst of a pack of submarines uid fighting it out at close quarters,” ;aid Capt. Isbell. Two months ago. U-boats began to fight back against air attack. It) aas then, the Navy reported, that! the Card and her escort began the series of trips that brought the ^residential citation. An indication of the tempo of U Doat warfare, the Navy said, was an tction in which two of the Card s Dianes attacked two surfaced sub marines and were shot down. Lt. Asbury H. Sallenger, Golds )oro, N. C., flying a torpedo bomber, iHacked two surfaced U-boats. He iamaged one so severely it could lot dive and probably sank the other. The second was finished off by ither pilots, Lt. (j. g.) Charles R. Stapler, New York, and Lt. (J. g.) funior C. Forney, Newton. Kans. Willow Run Workers End Strike on Plea Of Union Official By the Associated Press. DETROIT, Nov. 11.—A strike In volving 1,217 diesetters in three de partments of the huge Willow Run bomber plant ended this morning after an appeal by a union official and arrangements for negotiations on the dispute that led to the walk out Tuesday. Richard T. Leonard, director of the Ford department of the United Automobile Workers, CIO, said all day-shift employes reported for work following his back-to-wark appeal. A Ford Motor Co. spokesman said work had been resumed and that a conference between company and ! union representatives was arranged ! for this morning. The diesetters, he said, demanded reclassification as diesetters only, instead of diesetters and press operators. Company charges that the strike “was linked to a CIO attempt to take over management'' of the plant, were described last night by Glenn Brayton, president of Local 5, United Automobile Workers, CIO. as “a smoke screen designed to cover up Its own inefficiency." The Ford officials’ statement as serted that “for months union officials have been ‘needling’ the War Department and the Govern ment with criticism of Willow Run management and operation. They suggested more than once that man agement of the plant be given to a committee including representatives of the union and Army officials.” Mr. Brayton, explaining the union's efforts to further the setting up of union-management commit tees, said that because the com pany "has failed to operate the Willow Run bomber plant success fully, the union proposed the plant be run by a joint committee made up of representatives of the com pany, the Army and the bomber workers, or that it be run solely by the Government. "This plant is not owned by the Ford Motor Co. It was paid for and is owned by the American tax payer. We don’t think this is Ford's war. It is America's war.” Congress in Brief B> the Associated Press. Senate: In recess. Foreign Relations subcommittee considers resolution calling for ship ments of food to European children.

Furloughed Soldier Is Home To Ease Suffering of Dying Dog By the Associated Press. ALBANY, N. Y., Nov. 11.—Four months of grieving ended today for Pal, 17-year-old airedale-shepherd, when the dog was reunited with its weeping soldier master. Special Technician Franklin E. Higgins went immediately to his pet on arriving in Albany after a 1.300-mile train trip from Camp Crowder, Mo. The soldier, granted a special fur lough at the request of the Red Cross when Pal suffered a stroke Saturday, burst into tears as he i picked up and clung to the animal. Pal, recognizing him, licked the mas ter's face. The shaggy black-and-tan animal, which has been dying of grief since the induction of its 22-year-old constant companion, took nourish ment and managed a few feeble steps yesterday for the first time since Saturday—almost as if real izing its master was rushing to its side. Mrs. Frank A. Higgins, the soldier's mother, said there is no hope for Pal. Food (Continued From First Page.) reconstructed from "well populated cemeteries." Asked by Senator Thomas if the United States took any part in pro viding the funds. Dr. Kershner said this Government gave no money, but that the Red Cross bought and supplied 250,000 bushels of wheat from the Surplus Commodities Corp. for a nominal price of 1 or 2 cents a bushel.

He replied that the State and Treasury Departments told him they had no objection to the licenses re quired to pay for the food pur chases. When he asked why it could not be done, he said he was told, “You had better make inquiry at the British Embassy.” Asked by Senator Gillette if he followed up the suggestion, he said he had, and was told “this was a policy decided in high quarters and we have nothing to say about it.” Dr. Kershner also contended that in the National War Fund campaign it was represented that part of the $125,000,000 being raised is to be Pimlico Results FIRST RACE—Pur,#.

War Food Administrator Marvin Jones predicted today that because of the rise In wartime costs, higher prices may be needed for some farm crops. In announcing the 1944 farm goals, which call for an all-time record agriculture production, the admin istrator did not name the crops and said that prices of most farm prod ucts are high enough to encourage maximum production. Indicative of the farmers’ inten tion to meet the heavy food and feed demands, a record acreage goal of 380,000,000 acres was established after State meetings with farm representatives, Mr. Jones said. This is an increase of 16,000,000 acres over this year. Marketing and acreage restrictions will be removed on all crops except tobacco. Continuation and possible in creases of subsidy payments for support prices would be required under the program outlined by the food chief. Subsidy payments have cost the Government an estimated $350,000,000 this year. “The totals arrived at,” Mr. Jones said, “are as encouraging as the actual farm production record made in 1943. They Indicate that, barring the unforeseen, the Nation’s farmers will again meet the Nation’s heavy wartime requirements for food, fats and fibers.” Big Corn Crop Forecast. The second largest corn crop on record — 3,085,652,000 bushels — was forecast yesterday by the Agricul ture Department In its monthly crop report, which told of crop gains in other commodities. The department said that indi cated production on November 1 would be 30,000,000 bushels above the estimate of the month earlier. These "stimates, the department said, per tain to production for all purposes, grain, silage, forage, grazing and feed for hogs. The harvesting of most late crops was well advanced by November 7, the department stated, and reports on the yields of crops now being harvested average about what was expected. Rice Record* Broken. A record rice crop of 89,019,000 bushels Is In prospect and the soy bean crop is estimated at 208,017,000 bushels. This crop promises to be j fully 100,000,000 bushels more than; In any preceding year, while the rice crop will be 3.000.000 bushels more than last year’s record output. A predicted 469,000,000 bushel crop of potatoes promises to be the larg est since 1928. ’’Prom every point of view,” the department said, “the year’s record is one of great accomplishment un der difficulty. The acreage planted was only a few per cent under what seems likelv to be the maximum to be expected during the war.” Bishop (Continued From First Page.) adopted as its own a “statement of cardinal qualifications” for bishop which had been laid down by the i voluntary committees of clergymen and laymen of the diocese of Penn i sylvania for their recent procedure of selecting their bishop. These quali fications included the six outstand ing factors: Spiritual leadership, j intellectual vigor, social vision, paa , toral effectiveness, preaching power and administrative ability. Dr. Dun, the committee's No. 1 selection, was bom in New York City May 4, 1892. according to the sketch presented in the report. He attended Yale University, receiving a bachelor of arts degree in 1914. He then went to the seminary of which he is now dean, graduating as a bachelor of divinity in 1917. He holds an hono rary degree of doctor of divinity from Virginia Theological Seminary'. He married Catherine Whipple Pew j in 1916. They have two children. Since his ordination to the dia conate in 1917 by Bishop Lawrence, Dr. Dun has been associated with the Episcopal Theological School as professor in the department of the ology.

Dr. Dun has devoted a brief period to pastoral work, most of his ministerial life having been in the seminary. "He has made an excellent con tribution to the church in his ca pacity as professor and dean," the report said. "He is a man of marked spiritual power. His publications are evidence of his intellectual and spir itual capabilities: 'The King's Cross.’ 1926; ‘We Believe,’ 1934; ’Not by Bread Alone,’ 1942. Outstanding Preacher. "Dr. Dun is an outstanding preacher. He has participated in the civic activities of his community and is in close touch with the social and economic problems of the day. He is a good executive and administrator. Members of the committee who have been in contact with him in General Convention testify to his fine presence, his vigor and effec tiveness as a speaker, and his ca pacity to grasp and deal with the church's problems." The report furthermore pointed out that Dr. Dunn was the fourth choice of the committee of the dio cese of Pennsylvania for the office of bishop coadjutor in 1942. Several From District Considered.
