Soviet, High Command
Says Rivers Are Jammed
With Bodies Of Nazis
Fighting Continues
In Area Near Minsk
(By The Associated Press)
BERLIN, July 5.-German advance
units, fighting forward an average of
25 miles a day in the two-week-old
war with Soviet Russia, were reported
authoritatively tonight to be in con-
tact with the main Stalin Line on
the. Dnepr River in the region of
Orsha, about 300 miles west south-
west of Moscow.
Authorized sources announced the
location of this thrust and contact
(which normally means fighting be-
tween patrols) a few hours after
the High Command reports: "East of
Minsk, the river Dnepr was reached."
But in the Minsk area itself, 120
miles to the rear, fighting apparently
was continuing, for a communique
spoke of encircled troops there, and
the capture of Minsk had not been
announced officially.
The Dnepr River thrust highlight-
ed a High Command report which
told of military operations in the
East "proceeding according to plan,"
of further progres by Germany and
her allies from the Arctic to the Gali-
cian 'plain of Sovietized Poland.
In addition to 180,000 Soviet pris-
High Command said several thousand
fell into Nazi hands south of the
Pinsk marshes when "scattered en-
emysdetachmentshwere encountered
by our reserves at several points and
destroyed."
(The fact that German troops in-
volved in this sizable operation are
identified as reserves indicates large
.Red Army units may be operating
against' German bases and supply
lines behind the front which Nazi
armored and motorized columns have
arched in the shape of a huge bow
aimed at Moscow.)
Russians Defend
Main Stalin Line
(By The Associated Press)
MOSCOW, July 5.-Red Army sol-
diers, fighting in outer fringes of the
Stalin line, battled German invaders
deep inside White Russia today.
The High Command reported the
banks and the waters of two rivers
were filled with bodies of Nazis who
pounded vainly at a Soviet wall of
flesh and steel.
The official Soviet communique
named the Berezina and Drut Rivers
as the scene of sanguinary fighting
which ran through the night and in-
to its fourth day today, and stated
that attempts to force both rivers
were frustrated.
The Drut lies 30 to 40 miles east
of the Berezina and about 20 miles
west of Dner, along which runs
Russia's main defense barrier, the
Stalin Line. All three rivers run
roughly parallel there in a, north-
south flow. The region is 50 to 75
miles east of Minsk on the road to
Moscow, the capital lying nearly,0300
miles away.
It was not immediately clear how
the Germans could have reached the
Drut and yet failed to have forced
the Berezina, as the Russians stated.
It was possible that parachute or
glider troops might have been borne
by air behind the Russian Berezina
Line, and also that the Russians
might have been flanked by a Ger-
man mechanized column from the
north,

Bengal Vet
May Hfang Up
Glove Soon
By WATTI SPOELSTRA
DETROIT, July 5. -(IP)-The
abrupt end of the 16-year Major
League baseball career of Charles
Leonard Gehringer, Detroit's me-
chanical man second baseman, was
believed in sight today although the
38-year-old veteran is the only one
to say precisely when.
For two years baseball, men have
generally agreed that age was taking
its toll on the once agile infielder
who links Detroit's current Tigers
with the Ty Cobb era. Gehringer
had a back ailment most of last sea-
son and said after the World Series
that he might hang up his glove.
But even while Gehringer's field-
ing had fallen off, he still wielded a
potent bat that brought a .313 mark
in 1940. This year he reported much
improved physically for what he de-
scribed as another chance to show he
could maintain standards of excel-
lence.
At the halfway mark in the season,
Gehringer is batting a few points
above the .200 mark and ground balls
that once were easy chances for him
are filtering through for base hits
Defense Cuts
T' Enrollment
New defense jobs created during
the past year have had their expected
effect on University enrollment, ac-
cording to registration statistics re-
leased yetserday.
Total enrollment for the first week
of the Summer Session this year was
4,369, as compared with 5,231 for the
same period last year, a drop of 16.5
rer cent. Total enrollment last year
was 5,680, and University officials
expect this year's total to reach
4 8C0.
The total of men students regis-
tered dropped from 3,241 to 2,566,
a decrease of 21. per cent. The num-
ber of women students, however,
fell off only 9 per cent.
Highest enrollment drop, 20 per
cent out of a 1941 total of 2,411, was
recorded in the graduate school. Pro-
fessional schools were close with 18.6
per cent out of 319, and the under-
graduate units did best with a drop
of 11 per cent out of 1,639.
