fan try and the Essex Scottish of
Windsor, Ont., with a Calgary tank
regiment, carried the main attack of
the Dieppe raid right into the town
itself and battled the Germans
through the streets to capture the
main portions of the town.
After a tremendous naval bom-
bardment and aerial bombing of the
promenade area by the sea, these
units landed on the beach in front of
Dieppe and stormed the 'Nazi-held
buildings, barricades and strong
In flank attacks, units of the South
Saskatchewan Regiment and the
Cameron Highlanders from Winni-
peg landed at Pourville, two miles
west of Dieppe, and the Royal Regi-
ment from Toronto went in at Puit,
one miles east of the port.
Units of Les Fusiliers Mont Royal,
a French-Canadian battalion, served
as floating reserves and finally were
sent into Dieppe.
By this operation the Canadians
parried out the underlying object of
the raid, which was to test the Ger-
man defenses on the coast and to
obtain information about them.
Dieppe was left with many parts of
the town burning and as the raid
fleet sailed for England I could see
from the vessel which I occupied a
pall of smoke hanging over the port.
Several strong gun positions and
batteries of coastal artillery were de-
stroyed, a radio direction-finding sta-
tion was smashed and hundreds of
Germans were killed-the Nazis
themselves admitted to 400 dead
and wounded. The Canadians also
brought back a number of German
A small group of United States
Rangers was incLuded in the force,
attached to various regiments. They
landed and fought with combat
troops. Several of them engaged' in
the bitter action during the landings
and in subsequent engagements on
Just how many Rangers were in-
volved was not disclosed. Right by
my side, a young American sergeant,
Ken Kenyon of Minneapolis, knocked
off a German sharpshooter from a
window of a house with a dead-eye
shot. This came during the action
when the landing force was meeting
heavy opposition and terrific fire
from machine-gun nests and German
small arms.


From Associated Press Summaries
Of all the high-class pitchers in
either league, one leads the pack for
steady, day-in, day-out performance
against the Phils or the Yanks.
He is the standout pitcher for a
pennant-winning team, the guy that
goes out to stop losing streaks, and
the boy who can turn on additional
heat when it's needed.
Whitlow Wyatt is the name, and
the Brooklyn Dodgers are his affilia-
tion. Yesterday the beautiful bums
took on the New York Giants and
they were on as much of a spot as a
team with a 62-game lead can be.
The Cardinals were still coming,
and the Dodgers hadn't been doing
so well. Whit Wyatt stepped into
the breach and in typical style
pitched a beautiful one-hit, 2-1 win.
Johnny Mize got the only hit and
it was a home run to ruin the shut-
out. It was Wyatt's 15th win and
brought him within easy distance of
the twenty-game mark for the sec-
ond straight year.

For Grid Gaines
By The Associated Press
NEW YORK, Aug. 20 - It is in-
deed a pleasure to report that a lot
of the country's colleges think so
much of defense workers' entertain-
ment they're even changing their
schedules so that the workers can
get to see their football games this
fall-at the usual charge per tick-
An Associated Press ,urvey showed
today the schools are setting the us-
ual 2 or 3 p. m, starting times back,
in several cases, they're switching
from day to night games in other
spots, they're carding Sunday games,
and they're moving games from col-
lege campuses to big towns so that
they'll be available to defense plant
workers. The switch in sites of
course, is also dictated by transpor-
tation, problems.
