'Tdank Killers'
To Be Tested
In Mock War
WASHINGTON, Aug. 16.-(R)-
Organization of three fast-moving
new anti-tank groups designed to
break through the enemy's advance
units and harry and shatter his ar-
mored forces before they are pre-
pared for battle has been ordered by
the Army's General Headquarters.
The units, making up a force of
about 6,000 men, have been designa-
ted provisional GHQ anti-tank
groups, and will be tested in the great
war games between the second and
third armies in Louisiana next
Without disclosing details of their
composition, the War Department
said each of the "tank killer" groups
would be composed of three battal-
ions, would be fully motorized and
would be armed with 37 and 75 milli-
meter guns.
The intention, the department said,
is to develop "tank-shattering gun-
fire that will be flexible enough to
surpass the speed of any armored
force and massive enough to defeat
"The basic tactical doctrine for
these organizations," the announce-
ment continued, "calls for enterprise,
speed and offensive action of the
most persistent kind. They will not
wait for an armored force to attack.
Their mission will be to search out
such a force and stab at it before
it gets into formation for battlefield
Nine existing anti-tank units will
be combined in the provisional groups.
Lt-Gen. Lesley J. McNair, GHQ Chief
of Staff, has dfrected that Lt.-Gen.
Walter Kreuger, Third Army Com-
mander, select a concentration point
at which to begin intensive training
before the Louisiana maneuvers.
Gen. McNair, in issuing instructions
for creation of the GHQ groups, said
that working closely with aircraft
and scouting forces, they should lo-f
cate and keep contact with enemy
armored units and take advantage of
favorable opportunities to "attack
such units with massed gun fire."
State's Iron Ore
Goes To Defense
IRON RIVER, Aug. 16.-'P)-Stock
piles of iron ore which have stood
neglected for years beside the shafts
of abandoned mines throughout this
section of Michigan are being ship-
ped this season to fill the defense
needs of steel-makers.
Some 20,00 tons of ore mined a
generation ago at the old Beta mine
here is being assimilated by the Pitts-
burgh Coke and Iron Co.

(By The Associated Press)
NEW YORK, Aug. 16-While the
Eastern Seaboard faces a shortage
of gasoline and other petroleum
products this winter, the whole na-
tion is threatened with a shortage
of commercial airline transportation.
The gasoline shortage stems from1
the transfer of between 50 and 100
ocean tankers to British service; air-
line transportation may be disrupted
by the transfer of transport planes
to the British.
In the case of oil, every possible
conservation step is being taken to
alleviate the prospects of danger but
there doesn't seem to be anything
anyone is willing to do about the
prospective scaling down of the best
airline transportation service in the
Equitable Rationing
In Washington, today petroleum
marketers discussed the question of
equitable rationing of - gasoline
among the 10,000,000 motorists in
the Eastern Seaboard area, and indi-
cated they would propose, specific
procedure to 100,000 gasoline retail-
ers next week.
What proposals were under discus-
sion was not disclosed, but some oil
men speculated that each sale to
customers in the "non-essential"
class might be limited to five gallons
on one visit to a service station.
Last night's order from defense
officials cutting wholesale distribu-
tion of gasoline by 10 percent left
the matter of rationing among indi-
vidual motorists entirely up to the
filling station operators. It directed,
however, that "essential" vehicles-
fire trucks, other government vehi-
cles, physicians' cars and the like-
should receive necessary gasoline.
Secretary of the Interior Ickes, who
also is Petroleum Defense Coordi-
nator, took two other steps during
the day:
Two Other Steps
1. He announced that the oil in-
dustry was drawing plans to double
refining capacity for 100 octane avia-
tion gasoline and thus erase a threat-
ened shortage of this class of fuel
needed by the British, Russian and
American air forces.
2. He telegraphed an appeal to
mayors of 17 Eastern' cities to "take
immediate steps to ascertain to what
extent the cruising of taxicabs in
your city may be reduced without
throwing too heavy a burden upon
this method of transportation."
Legion Opposes Aid
ROCHESTER, N. Y., Aug. 16.--3)
-The New York American Legion
adopted today in annual convention
a resolution opposing United States
aid "to Communistic Russia in its
war with Nazi Germany or any other

But the plight of the air trans-
ports is another matter.
Thus far, the airlines which shut-
tle in the form of a giant dome over
the United States, have given up for
British use about 100 airliners. There
are left to them about 300 transport
Flying mileage is rising month by
month; the lines are carrying the
most passengers in their history;
most important of all, they are fly-
ing express in quantities never
dreamed of.
And that express constitutes prob-
ably the most important materials in
transitbin the United States today.
The vast majority of those packages
comprise vital necessities for national
defense industries.
