Lifeline Into Italy by Hitting Alpine Railway Bj the Associated Press. LONDON, Nov. 11. —Britain based RAF bombers pounded the German lifeline leading into Italy last night by striking ap proximately 600 miles across Europe to blast the northern terminus of the Mount Cenis Alpine Railway tunnel at Mo dane, the Air Ministry announced today. All planes returned safely from the raid, which was the second attack on Modane within eight weeks, the announcement said. Simultaneously Mosquito bombers attacked targets in Western Ger many and mines were laid in en emy waters, the bulletin added. The attack on Modane, located on the French side of the Italian fron tier. was described officially as "well concentrated" and was favored by clear weather. Blocks Repair of Tunnel. The raid nipped German attempts to repair and reopen the tunnel after the damage it suffered as a result of a riad September 16, and topped a fortnight of Allied air at tacks from the south along the Ger mans’ Alpine coastal artery into Italy. Yesterday more than 500 Britain based Allied planes had hammered Hitler's European fortress in sweep ing daylight raids. The night assault apparently was carried out in great force, for ob servers on the British southeast coast said they heard planes roar ing out toward the east for more than an hour before midnight. The RAF’s last major night opera tion was the November 3 attack on Duesseldorf and Cologne. I.one Plane Over London. A major operation yesterday was the attack by American Marauder bombers on the Nazi air base at Chievres, near Brussels. Early today a few antiaircraft guns in the London area fired upon a single plane which was not im mediately identified. No air-raid alert, was sounded. A dozen attacks were executed by Allied squadrons in the daylight operations yesterday and medium and light bombers and fighters thundered back and forth across the channel hour after hour.

The brothers were associates in the Brewster Export Co., which handled foreign sales. —Harris-Ewing Photo. Union Official Blames Poor Brewster Output On Mismanagement By the Associated Press. Paul J. Krebs, 32-year-old union official, today blamed labor hoard ing, attempted union “busting” and general inefficiency on the part of past managements of the Brewster Aeronautical Corp. for the com pany's production failures. Mr. Krebs, secretary of Local 365, United Automotive Workers, tesii-! tied before a House Naval AfTaiis Subcommittee that the “dominant cause for loafing' at the plants “was the lack of adequate provision to insure a proper flow of materials for the men to work with. A man cannot assemble airplanes when he does not have the parts.” "It would be convenient.” Mr Krebs added, “to picture American i workers as laying down on the job. shooting dice, smoking in the toilets and sleeping in the fuselages, to hide the Inability of management to cope with the problem of ma terial flow. ‘ Fortunately you now know that it was management—not labor—that was inadequate to the task. When the workers had the work and the proper supervision, they produced the goods.” Van Dusen, Riebel Hit. Mr Krebs directed his criticism specifically at the managements of C. A. Van Dusen and of Frederick Riebel, who preceded Henry J. Kaiser, West Coast shipbuilder, as president of Brewster. The union secretary asserted, “we are happy to reiterate our unquali- ! fied pledge of co-operation with the Kaiser administration because his history proves to us that he has the organization necessary to success fully operate the Brewster plant, and because of his ability, and be cause he will not find it necessary to crucify labor as a justification for management's shortcomings.” Mirandas on Stand. The Mexican-born Miranda broth ers, international munitions mer chants, yesterday unfolded the story of their prewar, world-wide dealings in arms and aircraft, but denied flatly any violation of the law— "legal or moral" —in sales to Japan. Alfred and Ignacio Miranda, both dark-haired and smartly tailored, underwent a day-long cross-exam ination as the subcommittee dug into their background and their connection with the Brewster Corp. Heavy stockholders in Brewster and the coporation's former ex- ; elusive foreign sales agents, they denied ever attempting to "dictate" management of the company, which is under investigation by the com mittee for failure to meet production schedules on Navy planes. But little of yesterday’s hearing centered around Brewster’s affairs.; Instead it focused in general upon ; the Mirandas’ export business and. in particular, upon their efforts to obtain machine guns in 1938 for installation in 20 Sikorsky planes1 which they had sold to Japan. A. J. Miranda frankly said he had attempted to buy the guns in1 this country, in Mexico, in Eng land and in Europe and Norway, but declared that his efforts had proved unsuccessful. He denied, however, any knowl edge of or any part, In what Repre sentative Grant, Republican, of In-’ diana called "machinations” by the’ Japanese firm of Okura & Co. to get the guns to Japan by shipping them to Antwerp and then trans shipping them to Siam. The Indiana Representative pro duced a mass of photostatic copies of letters and telegrams between the London and New York offices of Okura to show that such ar rangements had been made to ship the guns, but said later that they never had been carried out. Protests “Smear.” As Mr. Grant hammered away on the machine gun order, A. j. Miranda protested what he termed an attempt to “smear and dis-| credit" the activities of himself andj his brother, and asserted that their; foreign business had nothing to do with Brewster’s operations. Stepping into the argument, Representative Hebert, Democrat, of Louisiana declared that the Mirandas and their business asso ciate. F. William Zelcer, held a big interest in Brewster, and that the committee intended to find out their background. Mr. Hebert said that the Navy had “forced" the three, along with James Work, former Brewster president, to deposit their stock holdings into a voting trust which will expire next year "and we want to find out just to whom control of this company will be returned.” The Miranda brothers, now nat uralized American citizens, told of starting in the export business in 1920, selling automotive parts, auto mobiles, aircraft and munitions left over from the last war. England Repairs Homes First aid nas been given to 2,700, 000 damaged houses in England and Wales and more extensive work done to an additional 1,100,000 houses, Ernest Bevan, Minister oi Health, told the London Master Buildings Association. In the Lon don region alone 1,000.000 houses have been given first-aid repairs and 500,000 hav* had further patching. Lebanon s President And Premier Reported Arrested by French By the Associated Press. LONDON, Nov. 11.—Cairo dis patches said today that the Presi dent and Premier of Lebanon had been arrested by the French Na tional Committee of Liberation as the crisis between the Arab state and the French over the republic's status readied a grave turn. Tile dispute apparently reached a climax several days ago when the Lebanese Chamber of Deputies an nounced that it intended to adopt several constitutional changes. The French Committee at Algiers imme diately informed the chamber that the French Committee must be con sulted first. The Cairo dispatches said Leb anese President Shoukri El Kuwatli Bey was placed under house arrest by Senegalese guards yesterday and Premier Riad El Solh and two other ministers were arrested today. Disturbances at Beirut. Disturbances have broken out at Beirut, the capital, and communi cations have been severed from both Lebanon and the neighboring state of Syria, the Cairo repoits said. Only two pro-French newspapers were permitted to publish and other newspaper offices have been oc u P’ed bv troops, it was repo(t d. neuters, nriusn news agency said martial law had been proclaimed by the French Committee through out Lebanon. The Berlin radio, reporting that Beirut had been occupied bv French forces, claimed Arab tension w'as growing and that “general revolts” were expected in the northern and southern provinces. The only official French comment on the crisis came today from Jean \ Helleu, French delegate general.! who in a Beirut broadcast de nounced the chamber's action as a plot against France. Called “High-Handed.” Cairo newspapers, describing Egyp tian Arabs as outraged by the action, published long editorials terming the French measures as “high handed" and “an affront to the Atlantic Charter.” Tlie chamber s stand was based on the fact that on November 26. 1941, the independence of Lebanon was proclaimed by Gen. Georges Catroux, then commander of Free French forces in the Middle East, after his men had joined the British in overpowering the Vichy garrisons. Lebanon had been under French mandate since 1920. The Reuters report said French troops had been ordered to occupy all strategic cities in Lebanon. Ar rest of the Lebanese officials, the news agency said, was accompanied by considerable excitement in the streets of Beirut. Reuters quoted the Egyptian newspaper A1 Misr as the source of its information.

"In circumstantial evidence,” he declared, "it must be shown that no one but the accused could rea sonably have committed the crime.

"It is more like a rope of sev eral strands, which still has some strength though some strands are broken.” Entitled tu Reasonable Doubt. Turning to the fingerprint evi dence against De Marigny and the 'estimony that burned hairs were found on his hands and arms after the slaying, Sir Oscar declared: "The prisoner is entitled to the benefit of reasonable doubt, if the prosecution has not proved to you' that the print came from the screen or that his explanation of the burned hairs is untrue.” Concluding his final argument as court opened.

He told of a letter Nancy wrote her I parents threatening to break with \ them unless they accepted De Ma rigny, and suggested that De Ma rigny instigated it. Finally, he declared, with Nancy in a college in the United States and Sir Harry planning to leave Nassau, De Marigny was in such a predica ment “that in an attempt to get con trol of the family fortune he was willing to resort to murder.” Nancy, who testified Monday for her husband, was in the courtroom aut left suddenly when Mr. Hallinan oegan to present the crown's picture the actual slaying.

LONDON, Nov. 11. — Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden, making a report on the Moscow confer ence to the House of Commons, declared today the meeting had “exceeded my hopes” and had “brought a new warmth and new confidence into all our dealings with our Soviet and American friends.” Mr. Eden, a red Armistice Day poppy in his buttonhole, received loud applause from the Commons and then proceeded with a descrip tion of the results achieved at the tri-partite parley. Mutual Confidence. "The actual achievements of the conference seems to me to be solid enough,” he appraised, "but it was the friendly atmosphere of mutual interest and mutual confidence m which all these conferences took place which, to me, will always make the Moscow conference mem orable." He said a large measure of credit for success of the meetings must go to Foreign Commissar Vyache slav Molotov for his handling of the long and complicated agenda and add that Secretary of State Hull must have felt the results justified "his very gallant venture in making this long flight’’ from the United States. ui meaures which were taken to shorten the war, Mr. Eden declared, “the results of our discussions under this head can only be made public as they develop at the expense of the common enemy. I have confi dence that the development will be found generally satisfactory bv the members of all parts of the House.” No Dodging of Difficulties. Military discussions perhaps did more good to the mutual relations, by the lrank and exhaustive ex amination that was made of them, than any other phase of the con ierence, he said, adding "there was no tendency oii the part of any of the delegates to dodge any diffi culty or important issue that these matters raised.” He asserted that the delegates met "on a basis of complete equality" and strived "for one pur pose only, to try to bring the war to an end in victory at the earliest possible moment and thereafter full co-operation with each other to en sure that the people of the world might live at peace.” While not pretending that agree ment had been reached on all the problems discussed. Mr. Eden said reasonable hope could be held "for even the most stubborn among them " Some of his listeners pre sumed this a reference to the ques tion of Russia's postwar boundaries. He also disclosed that economic questions had been discussed and an agreement reached "on a program for handling these vast problems, on many of which work already has begun.” The absence of any eco nomic agreement had been men tioned by some commentators as the principal gap left in the Moscow conference program. He explained that only the three big Allied powers had been Included f,#" rht City == I JORDAN’S I =J^S St N.VV. f - - Wi piW ^••'•■Bld|.IS,h*N.v.Ave_ Rost lo the Ration 1*S I Friday's i luncheon | F Special S •"d’ W>u,IUe“"'xbPec,?‘l || appointed. be cbs* I JPresh I Shrimp | broccoIi and JuL n Potatoes.

My Turk ish colleague has now returned to Ankara to report on the outcome of these conversations to his govern ment. In the meanwhile there is nothing further I can say." No Mention of Turkish Bases, Thus there was no mention of the earlier speculation in some quar ters that Turkey might cede air bases to Britain, or possibly even enter the war on the side of the Allies. Mr. Eden gave an indirect reply to French and Polish dissatisfaction that their countries were not in cluded on the European Advisory Commission authorized by the Mos cow pact. He said the war had shown the urgent need of some such machinery above and beyond diplomatic interchange “to avoid de lays and misunderstandings which inevitably occur when each of us makes our own plan separately” and explained that the commission was limited to the United States, Russia and Britain because it was to be an advisory and not an executive body. “The truth must be faced,” he as serted, "that it is upon these three powers, principally, that will lie the responsibility for insuring that this iwar is followed by lasting peace.” Italy (Continued From First Page.! ; west of Mignano, attacked and drove the Germans from the south east slopes of another mountain barrier one mile southwest of that town. Mount Rotondo, only 1'2 miles northwest of Mignano, overlooks the valley leading to Cassino, 73 miles southeast of Rome, and was taken after the Americans had broken up | preparations for another large Ger man counterattack west of Venafro. A concentration of mortar and ar tillery fire falling among the Ger mans made them disperse. Americans Occupy Towns. Advancing 2 miles southwest from ForneTli, the Americans occupied the towns of Colli al Volturno and Montaquila. These places are about 6 miles southwest of Isernia and 21 miles northeast of Cassino.
