MIKNBSOTA. THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 1941  NUMBER 214  GERMANS BEGIN  AGAINST WINTER  Public School Enrollment Shows Steady Increase; ''Largest Class Graduates  Annual Report of Superintendent Reveals Many Interesting Facts  Editor's Note: This Is the first in a series of articles about the public schools of the city based on the annual school report submitted by Superintendent S. G. Reinertsen to members of the school board.  Today, with everj'one's attention foctised on the European war and the battle of the Atlantic, it is perhaps too easy to forget about and neglect matters of vital importance at home.  But with the completion of the annual school report by Superintendent S. G. Reinertsen and the presenting of it to members of the school board, we are forcefully reminded that the education of America's youth must occupy a do-mmant place in the nation's business, and that the future of the countn.- depends on the school children of today.

Strikes Spread In Norway, Say Swedish Reports  Quislings Lose Gjntrol; Two Norse Leaders Are Put To Death'  Sheriff Jugged-  Hugh Trowbridge Named Officer By Beet Growers  Western Association Closes Its Annual Convention In Fargo  Stockholm, Sweden, Sept. 11 (XJP) —Extension of nazi. repressive measures, hicluding martial law and summary executions, to key areas throughout Norway, was reported imminent today. Advices indicated that Norwegian Quislings had lost control of the situation and that strikes were spreading.  Two labor leaders already had been executed under the nazi martial law regime in the Oslo area and the entire board of the powerful Norwegian trades unions, the country's bulwark of opposition to German nile, had been removed from office and arrested.  Swedish PubUc Shocked.  Advice from Norway indicated that Vidkun Quisling, the Norwegian collaborationist leader who helped prepare the way for the German invasion, was no more than a figurehead now and that unless the Germans could subdue the stubbornly uncooperative working men of Norway they might have to send workers from Germany or from other occupied countries to restore  veals that the enrollment during i  the 1940-41 year reached an all time I Hugh Trowbridge, Comstock, was  high of 1.811.

Bombs were rained from giant British long range planes on the arsenal, on the great Fiat ad Caproni aircraft and motor works in the Turin area, and Milan-Genoa-Turin triangle which on other targets in the vulnerable is Italy's main source of heavy industrial and war supplies.

To emphasize the altered situation in the war in the air, last night was the second straight night in which no German plane was reported over Great Britain.

Capetown. South Africa, Sept. 11 (UP)—There were . strong indicat-ioos tck&y that Great Britain was prqsaiJng to launch its most jpir-i erfuT land offensive of the war agaiiist German and ^Italian forces in the Libyan desert.  Supplies and equipment frc»n the United States will have a vital part. .  Hundreds of thousands of tons of American ships heavily laden with war supplies are rounding the Cape of Good Hope. Some are bound for the middle east and far east. Others are headed back home with East Indies rubber, Rhodesian chrome and South African maga-nese, of which, it is understood, the United States is buying as much as its ships can carry.  Planes May Ferry SuppHes.  This movement has been in progress for several months and is increasing.  American planes have been flying south, and the general impression here is that if they aren't already ferrying supplies across Africa, they soon will be. Pan-American airways at least has surveyed that part of the coast from Bissau, Portuguese Guinea, to Monrovia, Liberia.  Observers here beheve that the flow of supplies and reinforcements to the middle east has reached the point where the British may take advantage of cooler weather and Germany's preoccupation with Russia to attempt to secure the left flank of the Suez canal. Constant harrying of enemy convoys in the Mediterranean and the British air offensive in Libya are taken as signs that both sides are preparing for a major struggle in the western desert.  Britain May Strike First  A British thrust toward Tripoli would be particularly welcome in South Africa, because it would be expected to remove the menace of closer Franco-German collaboration. which some observers feel might ultimately thrèaten the security of the whole continent the feeling is growing that India will  week on the United States destroy er Greer, which was en route to Iceland, and over the sinking of the United States freighter Steel Seafarer in the Red sea.

Speaks At 8:00 O'Clock.  These indications came after a white house conference at which Mr. Roosevelt went over with congressional leaders of both parties the pronouncement on foreign affairs which he will make at 8 p. m., CST., tonight.  Conferees declined to discuss de-ta^ of the speech, but said that no*legislation was indicated.  One person who attended the conference said the speech was "not very J^lligerent."  White House Secretary Stephen T. Early said the speech would give the peoi^e a cold» factual and up-to-the-minute statement of the Am^ican position in-ttie-'war, in plain language that would leave no questions unanswered.  Urges American To Lisi'en.  Chairman TOm ConnaHy, democrat, Texas of the senate foreign relations committee issued a statement urging Americans to listen to the speech.  After his conference with congressional leaders, Mr. Roosevelt talked for an hour and a half with Secretary of State Cordell Hull and Russian Ambassador Constantine Oumansky.  Hull said he understood the American missito, headed by W. Averell Harriman, would leave tomorrow or the next day for Lon-dwi and Moscow.  Because Mr. Roosevelt believes the speech will leave no immediate questions unanswered and because he feels no important additional news will develop tanorrow morning, he cancelled Friday's regular semi-weekly press conference.  There was a tendency to discount earlier speculation that the president would ask modification or repeal of the neutrality act. •  Hirohito Moves To Aid Konoye's Reversal Policy  Nipponese Appear To Be Drifting Away From Axis For U.

Dies After Long Dhiest  Nazis Say U. S. Provoking Ire  Score Permission For Americans To Sail  Tokyo, Sept. 11 (UP)—Emperor Hirohito today took direct command of Japanese army headquarters and moved to assure close army collaboration with Premier Prince Fumimaro Konoye's government, which appeared to be trying to keep Japan out of war even if that meant drifting away from her axis ties.  Major developments in Japan's efforts to cope with what Konoye has described as the most serious crisis in her history were: Yamada Generalissimo.  1. The war office established a new defense general headquarters under command of General Otozo Yamada. Yamada is personally responsible to the throne and becomes virtual generalissimo of the army, superseding previous emphasis on general staff control.  2. Konoye appointed Fumio Go to succeed Admiral Nobumasa Suet-sugu as chairman of the central co-operatvie council of the imperial rule assistance association—which replaced Japan's former political parties.  Newspaper Comment Tempered.  3. The emperor gave great prestige to the cabinet and implicitly gave his approval to find a solutitm of Japan's problem "short of war" by entertaining it at limcheon "in appreciation of the outstanding services they (the ministers) have rendered to the state.  4. Newspapers, continuing to temper their criticism of the United States, said that Japan and the United States should reach an amicable settlement of their disagreements. The newspaper Chau-gai said Japan and the United States should make a broad study of all problems hindering friendly relations.  Fuel Shortage Growing.

Officials said today, as the Germans launched new drives In a race against the swift approach of winter.  Snow has started falling"In" land, where a big-scale nazi push against Murmansk was reported renewed, according to British information.  Another German push southeastward through the Comel sector also was reported. It was an apparent effort to offset the Russian counter-offensive on the central front, and the battle for Leningrad continued without important change of positions,  RAF Aids Russians Both of the reported new German thrusts were part of the nazi race to consolidate their gains and to seize strategic positions before winter slows down or paralyzes fighting, but the extent of the Murmansk operations was still imcer-tain.  Dispatch of royal air force fighter planes (British pilots presumably wtDuld be essential to operation of the fighters) marked the first important co-operation of British and Russian armed forces on the east-em front and indicated the determination of London to help maintain the stronger possible winter front in Russia.  Snow In Finland The Russian counter-drives all along the eastern front were regarded here as making the Ger-man race against winter more difS-cult every day. Red army counterattacks were reported in Russian war dispatches today to have smashed German concentrations with huge casualties on the Ukraine, central, northern and Arctic fronts, OfBcial sources said that "many" of the BAP planes already had arrived in Russia, but they declined further elaboration.  Radio Helsinki broadcast the news that snow had started to fall Tuesday in northern Finland, whence it will come southward in the course of the next few weeks to blanket the eastern front for the duration of the grim Russian winter, and, if the Russians hold, to stabilize the fighting lines.
