230 Axis Sea
Victims Saved
From 4 Ships
Latest U-Boat Successes
Boost Atlantic War Total
To 353 Allied Vessels
By The Associ.ted Press
The deaths of 16 seamen aboard
four merchant vessels torpedoed by
Axis submarines in the western At-
lantic and the rescue of 230 others
were disclosed yesterday in the Navy's
announcements of the sinkings.
The latest U-boat victims - two
medium-sized British vessels, a small
United States merchantman and a
medium-sized Belgian cargo ship--
swelled to 35,3 the unofficial Associ-
ated press count of Allied and neu-
tral ship losses in the western At-
lantic area since America's entry in-
to the war.
Two torpedoes, and shells from the
submarine's large deck gun, blasted
one of the British merchantmen to
the bottom of the South Atlantic
June 1, killing three crewmen on
duty in the engine room. Among
the vessel's 78 survivors was Quarter-
master B. G: Cook, of London, who
described the raider as being the larg-
est submarine he had ever seen, and
"big enough to carry a plane."
Cook and 22 others were adrift 11
days before being rescued by another
British ship. Two lifeboats with the
remaining survivors were reported to
have been landed at a West Indian
islaid.
A 30-year-old submarine com-
mander, speaking perfect English,
pointed out the shortest route to land
to 86 survivors of the second British
cargo vessel-wishing them good luck
and expressing hopes of meeting
them again.
The lone fatality was a British In-
dian, who was blown to pieces by the
torpedo. Two hours after continuous
shelling4 the merchantman sank. The
marauder signalled another sub-
marine as it cruised away.
Tire Conservation
Plan IsSuggested
GRAND RAPIDS, July 10.-(P)-
A four-point program for more effi-
cient use and conservation of trans-
portation facilities was advanced to-
day by Maxwell Halsey, chairman of
the State Highway Traffic Advisory
Committee, at a luncheon meeting
here.
Halsey said that present tire sup-
plies are being exhAusted at the rate
of from 3 to 5 per cent a month, and
that motorists can expect no nev
tires for at least two years.
First point of Halsey's program is
staggering working hours, which, he
said, would make it possible for bus-
ses to carry twice their normal daily
loads. The second, the share-the-
ride plan, is already saving 93,000,-
000 tire miles yearly in Pontiac, he
said.
A third point is prevention of high-
way and home accidents, which, he
said, cost state factories 10,000,000
man-hours of work last year.

last request. ~ Well,' mine will be a

California is by gas.

Government Regulations
Affect Careless Debtors
In New War Measure
Hundreds of old charge accounts
which weren't paid up by closing-
time yesterday in Ann Arbor's stores
are frozen tight by a Federal regula-
tion, and if anybody who was careless
about his bills drops in today to
charge a new dress the store manager
is ready to explain it isn't his fault.
The government regulation forced
every store in the country to freeze
all accounts which still had a bal-
ance after closing-time yesterday.
That means all customers who owe
anything from $100 to one cent can't
run up any new bills until they pay
the old ones.
Each store must keep its books
open for Federal inspection and the
books must show "paid in full" or
the managenent will take the con-
seuences.
"Best" customers, relatives or
mothers-in-law aren't excepted.
Today many Saturday shoppers
will get the shock of their lives when
they try to beat the law. So if you're
one of those who thinks he's going.
to open a new account in a different
store, forget it. The manager there
will refuse you to because you've got
a frozen account. He'll tell you that
the Government means bsiness-pay
up your bills.
There is only one out. Regular
installment buying is unaffected. it
will still go on except that the rules
have been tightened.

Bare German
Sabotage Plan
(Continued from Page 1)
He has been questioned by the FBI.
It was not announced whether an
arrest had been made.
Censorship does not permit the dis-
closure of all details, but, it is well
established, small operators started
in the trucking business and were
soon subsidized by the German Gov-
ernment. They grew rapidly and
were granted large hauling contracts.
Manufacturers in the Middle West
have expressed the belief that truck
transportation was preferable to rail-
road transportation. It now develops
that the War' Production Board has
been hesitant about using trucks be-
cause of the danger of accidents.
That some "accidents" resulted from
deliberate sabotage is now apparent
and no more vital machinery is being
entrusted to the companies respon-
sible.
It has been established that there
is no longer any German control over
privately owned airlines of the Unit-
ed States or Canada. But, it is not
known how many trucking concerns
may be invdved as they mushroomed
in recent years to the point where
4,500,000 trucks were employed in the
transportation industry.%
As a result of the investigatiol, no
trucking contracts related to the war
effort will be awarded until such
time as they have been cleared by the
War Department Intelligence and
the FBI.

Hitler Slipping, But Greater Effort
Needed To Beat Him, Says Lochner

Newspaper Correspondent
Calls Airpower Key
To Allied Victory
By The Associated Press
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., July 10.
-Louis Lochner, chief of the Associ-
ated Press Bureau in Berlin for 17
years, said tonight that Hitler was
slipping and "some day the crash is
bound to come," but not unless "every
man, woman and child gets behind
Uncle Sam with the greatest effort
the world has ever known."
He told' the University of Virginia
Institute of Public Affairs that there
were "brave souls" in Germany .who
dared oppose Hitler's tyranny, that
the Fuehrer was losing his 'sychic
sense for divining the sentiments of
the German people and that he was
confronted with a number of serious
bottlenecks, but that nonetheless "we
must be unrelenting in our effort to
inflict a smashing blow upon the
Hitler regime."
Recounting some of his observa-
tions of the German Blitz drive into
the heart of France, the 1939 Pulit-
zer Prize winner for distinguished
service as a Foreign Correspondent
declared:
"If thereF is any one military im-

<"7

experience he was satisfied the Fueh-
rer was "by no means invulnerable.'
In addition to Hitler's psychologi-
cal mistakes, he cited "bottlenecks"
in German transportation and raw
materials.
"He is beginning to pay dearly
for his egotism in neglecting the rail-
ways and favoring Adolf Hitler super-
highways which are to carry his fame
to the four corners of the globe,"
Lochner said. "Let our bombers, now
stationed on the British Isles, strike
at German railway centers, engines
and moving freight trains, and Hit-
ler will have been hit at one of his
most vulnerable points."
Before the war, he said, about 24,-
000,000 German men were engaged in
gainful occupations, whereas today
only about 11,000,000 were left in

civilian life "to work long hours." To
make up for the men at the front,
Lochner reported, more than 9,000,-
000 women had been pressed into
work, augmented by about 1,500,000
prisoners of war, more than 2,000,-
000 foreign laborers and more recent-
ly by "several million children from
10 years upward."'
"With their fathers, husbands and
sweethearts gone, the women at
home have also been reduced to virt-
ual slavery," he said, "and this, too,
at a time when food is scarce, when
everything literally everything is ra-
tioned-and how!-and when the
long absence of fats is severely un-
mining public health."
Lochner was chief of the AP Bu-
reau in Berlin from 1924 untilshis
internment in December, 1941.

SEE WAR'S END - Predict-
ing the war would end probably
in 1942 and unquestionably in
1943," Chairman Andrew J. May
(above) (Dem-Ky) of the House
Military Affairs Committee, said
in Washington there would be
no need'for the Army to induct
married men or youths in the
18-and '19-year group. The in-
formation on which he based the
prediction, he told reporters,
was a "military secret." ,
