Of Businesses
Seen For 1943
Federal Officials Predict
Necessity For Decrease
In Civilian Industries
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON. Aug. 15.-Some
form of concentration of wholesale
and retail businesses and distributive
facilities, as well as civilian indus-
tries, will be necessary before mid-
1943 to save thousands of merchants
from bankruptcy, informed govern-
ment officials predicted today.
A tentative plan which would per-
mit hard-pressed stores to close "for
the duration," and reopen after the
war with a minimum of financial
loss, already is under study, it was
Officials in close touch with the
general merchandising situation, who
declined to be quoted by name, said
the overall plan for wholesale and re-
tail concentration now was little
more than a "basis for argument"
and a recognition of the economic
restrictions which will be necessary
in a long war,
Under the tentative plan, which
draws on experience in England,
merchants caught in the "squeeze" of
price ceilings, or faced with business
failure.because of normal competitive
conditions and abnormal lack of con-
sumer goods to sell, would be able to
turn over their stocks and their cus-
, tamers to a competitor and close
their doors.
Their firm names, good-will and
investment would be protected, either
by mutual agreement and voluntary
cooperation, or under terms of con-
gressional legislation.
Thus, for example, several compet-
ing stores in a community might find
themselves ultimately battling for
survival with only about 25 per cent
of the goods they nornally would
have on their shelves.

Nazi Report
Is Not Sunk
LONDON, Aug. 15.-The German
High Command today withdrew its
claim that the U.S. aircraft carrier
Wasp had been damaged in the great
western Mediterranean convoy battle
but officially reported that the run-
ning fight was over with six British
men-o' -war and 15 merchant ships
or tankers sunk.
Backing down from their official
report of yesterday that the Wasp
was hit by six bombs and set on
fire, the Germans said it was a Brit-
ish aircraft carrier of the Illustrious
type that was damaged.
The Axis, however, was unable to
get together on its broadcast claims,
for the Italians told the world that
the battle was continuing; that a de-
stroyer and two cruisers had been
damaged yesterday by torpedoes and
bombs, and that torpedo planes had
hit the prow of a battleship.
Unofficial Italian reports further
sai dthat larger units of the Italian
surface fleet had no opportunity of
giving battle as the battleships es-
corting the convoy abandoned it and
withdrew to Gibraltar shortly after
the air and submarine attacks were

Connie Mack's Recruit hIIrlers
Look Good As A's, Yanks Split

rrom Assnciatei Press Summaries
While the rulers of the American!
League, the proud and mighty New
York Yankees, are spending file
weekend at Philadelphia, it might
be well for them to look around and
take an especially long look at the
hottest hurlers in the Junior circuit.
By throwing Spud Chandler and
Ernie Bonham, the best the champs
have to offer, at the A's yesterday
the Yankees managed to come off
with a split in a doubleheader. They
probably walked off the field with
something else too, a profound re-
spect for the hurling staff that wily
old Connie Mack has been develop-
ing in the obscurity of the second
Last year Mack was getting real
slugging from his boys. among them
Sam Chapman and Benny McCoy
who are now in the Navy. With this
depletion of the hitting ranks, Mack
looked ready to turn out a team as
futile as the crosstown Phillies. But
not Cornelius McGillicudy!
Although his few remaining hitters
couldn't catch their stride, he has
gradually developed a recruit hurling
corps which is now surpassing that
of the Tigers in effectiveness. Headed
by Phil Marchildon who has won
13 games for the last place A's, the
pitching staff has produced spark-
ling performances game after, game,
only to see wasted hits lose heart-
Others beside Marchildon who are
unusually effective of late are Russ
Cristopher, Luman Harris, Roger
Wolff, Dick Fowler, and Herman
Beese. It's quite a line-up and if the
Athletics should start hitting with
the oldtime punch of which Bob
Johnson, Dick Siebert and others areS
capable, first division watch out!
At Boston, the Red Sox who havej
recently chucked away a lot of
chances to gain on thetYanks took
advantage of the split to pick up a
game. They nicked the Senators-
who had won 12 of their last 16-
for two single run victories, handing

Occupation Races
To Close Victory
In Futurity Contest
CHICAGO, Aug. 15.-(I--Occupa-
tion, fastest working two-year-old on
the American turf, raced to a neck
victory inthe $69,875 Washington
Park Futurity today.
The little brown son of Bulldog-
Miss Bunting, owned by John
Marsch, Chicago contractor, collect-
ed the winner's share of $58,475 to
stretch his earnings to $117,575. This
advanced him so far ahead of all
other juveniles that it is apparently
certain that he will top the division
for the year.
Count Fleet, owned by Mrs. John
D. Hertz of New York, was second
and the 20 to 1 shot, Blue Swords,
owned by A. T. Simmons, Akron, O.,
was third, six lengths back. Another
long shot, Ringmenow, at odds of 99
to 1, finished so close to Blue Swords
that a photograph was necessary to
separate them.

ter Balaski, was caught flat-footed at
