Texas, July 15, 1942. the 95th (Victory) Division crossed the Atlantic two years later in August, 1944, and went into the line against the Germans south of Metz in October.  At Saturdays rcremonies Maj. Gen. Harry L. Twaddle, former war department G-3 and commanding general of the division since activation, will receive the colors of the 377th, 378th, 379th infantry regiments, division artillery and its four battalions and the 320th Engineer and Medical battalions.  Those same colors were carried by the division's combat units during the historic drive on Metz, the subsequent push to the Saar and the fighting in the Siegfried line, the .spring drive to the Rhine below Cologne and the final reduction of the Ruhr pocket.  The 95th Division trained at Camp Swift, Fort Sam Houston and Camp Builis, Texas; Camp Polk, La.: the California-Arizona dr.sert maneuver area; Indiantown Gap Military Reservation, Pa., and the West Virginia moimtain training area.  During 11 months In the ETO, the 95th Division was in combat 180 days, including one period of 103 days without rest or relief. It fought under three armies in four countries; was opposed at different times by 12 Nazi divisions—infantry, panzer, paratroop and Volksgrena-dier—and 225 miscellaneous units.  The division inflicted upwards of 47,000 casualties on enemy forces, including more tlian 15,000 killed and wounded.  Officers and men of the Victory Division received 4,682 awards and decorations, including I congressional medal of honor, 22 distin-guisiied service crosses, 1 distinguished service medal, 6 legion of merit awards, 841 silver stars, 3,667 bronze star medals, 13 soldiers' medals and 131 air medals—plus more than 10,000 purple hearts.  Seventy-five of the division's enlisted men received battlefield commissions and several of them subsequently were promoted to the rank of first lieutenant.  The 95th Division returned to the United States June 29, one of four j divisions scheduled for redeployment to the Pacific theater. It assembled at Camp Shelby early In August. With the defeat of Japan, the 95th's orders were changed and its early inactivation was Indicated.

Tlie day ended wltliout offioiai indication tliat a new premier had been named, and reports persisted that the moderate Yoshlda himself would take the helm of government despite his own denials.  Emperor Hirohito acceptrd the resignations of Prince Higashi-Kuni and his entire cabinet with the comment "tliat is good" and made it clear that he would ask MacArthur's prior approval of the next premier.  Yoshido, a career diplomat, told  I Japanese interviewers that "it Is not I," but tliey pointed out that he "is always foxy and wouldn't admit it bcforeliand anyway." They added tliat two visits they said he made to the imperial palace today—and two calls at MacArthur's headquarters—indicated his selection and approval.

Mrs. Annie T. Mansfeldt, 45, said by friends to be a "wonderful woman and a wonderful motiier to her three children," told Deputy District Attotrney Harding McGulre that she shot Mrs. Vada Martin, 36, while the two were sitting in the Mansfeldt car on a San Francisco street corner.  Mrs, Mansfeldt is scheduled to be arraigned this morning before Mu-, nicipal Judpe Edward Molkenbuhr.  McGuire and Inspector A1 Coras-sa, chief of the homicide .squad, gave I this account of tiie tragedy: I Mrs. Mansfeldt walked into the ; central emergency hospital yester-: day morning, dropped a pearl-han  dled .32 caliber revolver on the counter, and told attendants calmly, "A woman is dying In the front seat of my automobile."  When the attendant.^ reached the car Mrs. Martin was dead, shot through the left breast. The slain woman was the wife of Warrant Officer Wilbur L. Martin, .serving overseas with the navy. They came here 14 months ago from Baltimore.  Shocked and frightened Mrs. Mansfeldt whispered, "I shot her. I accused her of being infatuated with my husband. After I shot her she told me with her dying breath she had never been intimate with him. Now I believe her and it's too late, too late."  The hu.sband, Dr, ,John Mansfeldt, was summoned to the hospital and identified his wife, but left a few minutes later without comment.  Mrs. Mansfeldt was given emergency treatment for hysteria at the hospital and then tran.sferred to the city jail.  OIL CREWS ORDERED TO WORK  WASHINGTON, Oct. 5.—i/P)-The CIO oil workers leadership today ordered 43,000 idle union members back to work after the navy had taken over operation of strike-bound refineries on orders from President Truman.  Union President O, A. Knight of the union told a news conference the oil workers were told to return "to work for the United States government. The union is "not capitulating to the oil companies — the union is .still on strike against the companies." Knight said.

The editorial was the first comprehensive explanation of the Soviet position on the foreign ministers meeting which broke up In disagreement, and staffs of the British and U. g, emba.ssleK were at work early on translations for transmission to tlieir respective governments.  Foreign Commissar Vyacheslav M. Molotov, meanwhile, returned from I-ondon and presented to the government his first-hand account.  Izvestia declared that "the seriousness of what happened In Ijondon cannot be underestimated."  The London conference broke up in a deadlock over procedure on Balkan peace treaties, with Molotov opposing U. S. Secretary of State James F, Byrnes and British Foreign Secretary Ernest Bevin, who held that France and China should be included in the dl,scus<ilons. The Russian po.sition was that the Pots  dam agreement limited such discussions to signatories of the armistices.  Izvestia sharply criticized Byrnes and Bevin. BjTnes was accused of hindering a Soviet proposal to extend the sessions a day longer of "categorically refusing to prolong the work of the ministers council."
