Frey lifted a long lazy fly to right center and DiMaggio loped over to pull it down. Goodman fouled to Rolfe in front of the third base boxes. No runs, no hits, no errors, none left. Yankees: The haze had settled down over the outfield considerably and it was difficult to read the Scoreboard from the stands back of the plate. Crosetti let the count reach two and one then dumped a single in short left center, the ball sailing over Myers' outstretch- ed glove. Crosetti was nearly pick- ed off first by Lombardi's fast throw but got back tc the bag in time. Rolfe bounced the ball to Walters who threw to Myers at second, forcing Crosetti but Bycrs' peg to first was too late to catch Rolfc and he was safe on the field- er's choice. Froy took Keller's hot grounder and stepped on second forcing Rolfc. Keller was .safe on first as there was no play there. DiMaggio backed Berger almost to the gate in front of the Yankee bullpen in deep left for his long fly. No runs, one hit, no errors, one left. Second Inning Reds: DiMaggio trotted into left center to take McCormick's loft. Lombard! fouled off five pitches then sent a long fly to Selkirk deep in left center. The Reds wore lined up on the steps of theii bullpen in- tent on the game while the Yankees as usual just sat back on the bench and enjoyed the proceedings. Craft worked the count to two and two then fanned swinging at a low breaking curve. No runs, no hits, no errors, none left. Yankees: Dickey received a nice hand as he came to bat, apparently as a reward for his ninth-inning single which won yesterday's game. Dickey was called out on strikes three pitches as Walters worked 'the corners beautiful. Selkirk drop- pod a Texas league single in short center but was out at second try- ing to stretch it, Craft to Myers. Craft pulled down Gordon's (ly in center. No runs, one hit, no errors. none left. Third Inning Reds: Except for the. far reaches of the upper deck in left field, the stands were comfortably filled all around the park by this time. Ber- ber shot a long fly to Selkirk in left. Myers was called out on three strikes. Pearson fooling him for the third strike on a drop that broke across the knees. Rolfc took Walters' bounder near third and threw him out easily.

The Fuehrer was scheduled to cnk tit noon (E a.m EST) to the members of his completely submis- sive legislature, possibly to pro- nounce some new German attitude toward the western powers at war with Germany. But what Hitler intended to say remained a profound secret and in official circles it was emphasized that speculation on his speech was "hazardous and a disservice to everyone." Hitler loft for Warsaw this morn- ing to'review a triumphal parade by Nazi troops, according to in- formed sources. His standard continued to fly from the a sign of his presence in these sources said that merely meant ho planned to be back be- fore the day was over. Tomorrow the Fuehrer is sche- duled to speak for one and three- fourths hours. It was stated the rough draft of the.speech had been completed but changes were pos- sible up to the last minute. Even the best-informed Berlin newspapers devoted only one sen- tence to announcing the Reichstag session although they displayed the announcement under their blackest headlines. Dissatisfied Observers seeking a hint of what German policy may be knew that in quarters close to the foreign of- fice there was dissatisfaction with the attitude of British Prime Min- ister Chamberlain and Lord Hali- fax, his foreign secretary. (In speeches in parliament, Chamberlain declared Tuesday that "mere assurances from Germany" were not enough for Britain to halt hostilities and Halifax, said yester- day there "no more perilous proceeding: than to negotiate under the threat of They knew also that from in- spired sources have come repeated statements that "Germany is ready for either peace or war" and that the choice is up to Great Britain. Every effort is 'being made to place responsibility for the war and its prolongation on Britain.

(jP) of the Holston Con- ferences of the Methodist church will result in shifting of traditional boundaries to reduce the number of districts from 13 to 10, church- men indicated today. Discussions at the historic con- clave now in progress, which will lead to unification of the two divi- sions of Methodism tomorrow, were that the following recommenda- tions will be made: (1) That the Bristol, Tenn.-Va., district of the Methodist Episcopal church be absorbed by the Abing- don, Big Stone Gap, Tazewell and Wytheville districts of the former southern division. (2) That the Knoxville districts of the two churches be merged, with similar action in Chattanooga. (3) That the Johnson City and Harriman districts of the former M. E. church be the base of dis- tricts to include parts of former southern districts. (4) That the Sweetwater and Morristown districts be the base of districts, to include parts of dis- tricts of the northern section, re- j twining the southern church's 'dis- trict area generally.. This proposal would give the Abingdon, Va.', district about 30 charges including the First church of Bristol and six or seven former M. E. congregations. Big Stone Gap district would have 36 charges, including seven former M. E. groups; Tazewell would get about 30 charges with one addition, and the Wytheville district would have about 32 charges including five or six additions.

Blanche Johnson, 22, of Kingsport, is in Appalachian hospital here to- day with serious injuries as a re- sult of an automobile-motorcycle accident "which cost the life of a companion, George Holdren, 21, resident of Elizabethton. According to Highway Patrol- man V. K. Wagner the accident occurred at p. m. yesterday on the Bristol highway rive miles north of here. Wagner said Mrs. Johnson and Holdren were riding the motorcycle which collided with a car driven by J. S. Sinclair, 25, of Hampton, Va. Attaches of the hospital reported that Mrs. Johnson suffered a frac- ture of the right leg and right hand. Holdren was reported to have succumbed to internal inju- ries three hours after the accident. His death was the fourth traffic fatality in Washington county this year. Turning in Road Wagner quoted Sinclair as saying the motorcycle was headed toward Johnson City and crashed into the side of his car which was being turned around in the highway. The youth, told the officer that he did not see the motorcycle approaching and that he started to turn be- cause he thought he was on the wrong highway. The car had been travelling in the direction of Bris- tol, Wagner said. Highway officers said that Sin- clair is being held in the Johnson City jail pending further investiga- tion of the accident. Funeral services for Holdren are scheduled Saturday at 3 p. m., at the home of a brother, Charles, in (See YOUTH KILLED, page 14) Last Minute News Flashes CHANCELLOR REFUSES INJUNCTION AtiAIiVST PATROL NASHVILLE, Oct. 5. application for an injunction re- straining Tom Morris, state director of safety, from using the state highway patrol as a raiding squad was refused today by Chancellor 1C. 15, C.

French army was reported .today to have strengthened its positions so great- ly by recent gains on the north- western' end of the front facing Germany as to minimize the danger of any attempt to turn its left flank by a thrust through neutral Luxem- bourg. Military advises said tho French p.rmy was in full possession of the Borg forest after a brief, close- range buttle between French and Germr.n tanks. "'he forest is in Lhr strategic SCO- TT ncl.v.'ocvi the Moselle and Saar just cast of Luxembourg. On the no'itital front wore ar'ti.ir, against members of 'he dissc'ved Communist party on they were trying: to put it 'rito oycr'ticn '.'r.dor name. An order was issued for the ar- cst of deputies of the narty, Florimond Bonte, 49-year-old jour- nalist, and Arthur Rar.icttc, 12- vear-old mechanic. In an offi'ial decree, apparently .aimed at muzzling Communist de- puties who have been urging peace talks with the Reich, Premier Dala- dier'sent parliament on vacation. The action stripped the deputies of the parliamentary immunities they have enjoyed since parliament was summoned in extraordinary session Sept. 2. The Communist party recently was abolished by government order, but has been reorganizing under a new name, On the German front, reports in- dicated, French military leaders were strengthening their lines in the hilly Saar and Paltinate sectors to meet the threat of a possible German assault. Steady "nibbling" by French pa- trols also was reported to have re- sulted in gains in the Moselle river sector. Semi-official military information said the French now were in full possession of the Borg forest in the pocket between the Moselle and Saar rivers near the border of neutral Luxembourg. Close Ilange Combat While a general staff communique this morning reported only "inter- mittent artillery actions at differ- ent points on the dispatches from Luxembourg said capture cf the Borg forest had been marked by close range combat between French and German tanks. These new gains, it was said, placed the French in better posi- tion to resist any Nazi attempt i.o outflank the Maginot defenses by advancing through possibility that French military men apparently were not ready to dismiss lightly. There was no evidence of any immediate spectacular military ac- tivity as the general staff appeared bent on keeping casualties to a minimum and using time as an ally to bring Germany down. The press acclaimed the speech delivered yesterday before the for- eign affairs committee of the Cham- ber of Deputies by Premier Dala- dier, who asserted that France would fight until victorious in the war "that has been forced upon us." Editorial comment also was di- rected against the Communist de- puties who have been urging peace talks.

(fP} The American Federation of Labor may act on its 5Dth annual conven- tion to reinforce its stand against labor's non-partisan league by clos- ing the doors of AFL state and city labor bodies to trade unionists who belong to the league. A request for' such action was made by the representative of the California State Federation cf Labor. The Federation broke with the league in 1937 over the CIO issue, contending the league was an arm of the rival labor movement led rcy John L. Lewis. Though President William Green, the AFL served notice ir. 1938 on all directly affiliated state federa- tions and city central bodies to di- vorce their organizations from the league. A resolution submitted by the California federation asked the AFL convention to reaffirm its stand against the league and to in- struct Green to order all directly affiliated bodies to refuse member- ship to individual'AFL members as well as organizations who have re- mained in the league.

Brit- ish Press Association said today a German submarine which landed 28 men from the torpedoed Greek steamer Diamantis on the Irish coast acted too quackly for guards of neutral Ireland to attempt in- ternment of the U-boat. The ship's crew was set ashore last evening near Dingle, county Kerry, some 15 miles from the spot where Sir Roger Casement, Irish nationalist, was landed by a 'Ge'r- man submarine in a world war anti-British plot. First reports from Dublin said the submarine exchanged greetings with persons ashore while the. Dia- mantis' survivors wore ferried to land in a collapsible boat. The Dia- mantis, tons, was sunk off Land's End Tuesday. Rush To Spot "Civic guards patrolling the coast saw the submarine on the surface and rushed to the said the press association's account, "but they were too late to detain the German U-boat. While they were still .some distance away the sub- marine moved away from the coast and started to submerge. "When the guards actually reached the scene of the la.nding the only evidence of the daring maneuver of the German U-boat commander was a stretch frothy sea. where the submarine ha.d dis- appeared and a group of'bewildered .seamen were on the shore." Six of the survivors were taken to Dingle hospital for treatment of1 injuries sustained in the torpedo-' ing. The. others said they had been aboard the U-'boat for 33 hours and were treated courteously while it cruised oCf the Irish coast seeking a spot to put them ashore. Sir Roger Casement and two companiaiiK were lar.ded similarly on the night of April 20, 1916. Their arrival was alleged to have tocen part oE a plan for the Easter week Irish uprising. Sir Roger was exe- cuted in London.

The new organization elected Dr. 'Herbert Acuff of Knoxville, chair- man for the ensuing year. Dr. J. C. Pennington of Nashville, was elect- ed vice-chairman and Dr. Thomas McNeer of Kingsport was named secretary-treasurer. The election and organization was held immediately following an address of welcome by Alderman Carl Goerdel who spoke on behalf ol the 'city for Mayor E. W. Tipton who was out of the city. Dr. B. T. Beasley of Atlanta, secretary-trea- surer of the Southeastern Surgical Congress, discussed the place and I purpose of the organization, Dr. Herbert Acuff, president of the Tennessee Section, conducted a clinic in connection with an ad- dress on "Surgical Treatment Pulmonary Tuberculosis." The meeting adjourned at noon for lun- cheon at the Kingsport Utilities building. More than a score of wives of the visiting medical men were con- ducted through the hospital during the morning session. They were to be entertained at the Kingsport Country club this afternoon by j wives of doctors oil the local com- mittee. The afternoon session was to in- clude an address by J.

The paper is more than 1400 years old. By JOHN W. CULMER LONDON, Oct. 5. Brit- ish, and German navies are locked in a battle of techniques. Tied up with it is the British hope of ultimate and possibly earjy defeat of the German submarine campaign against allied merchant shipping. Although admiralty officials will not talk, students of wartime tech- nique give an idea of the nature of the problem and the measures the navy is taking to meet it. Torpedoes have been improved since the World War, but so have depth main offensive weapon against submarines. The modern "heater" torpedo, driven by superheated steam, and equally exploited by Great Britain and Germany, does not leave the objectionable and telltale bubble track that was a fault of the com- pressed-air type. By watching the bubbles, clever helmsmen were able to dodge after the old-style torpe- does were fired. Depth bombs, shaped somewhat like steel oil drums, arc cither dropped from skids at the stern of an attacking destroyer or lobbed out about 40 yards from the side ci the ship by Howitzers. Crush Subs Exploding underwater, a nearby depth charge may crush or spring the hull plates of a submarine by a sudden increase in the water pressure. "The actual distance at which a depth .charge must explode from a submarine to crush its hull is a says Lieut. Commander Kenneth Edwards, a British naval authority, in a standard work. "But even if it does not crush it com- pletely, it is liable to do extensive damage." Britain has virtually abandoned tho anti-torpedo nets slung on booms from the sides of ships during the World War. The nets seldom proved strong enough to stop a torpedo, and their weight reduced speed and hampered ma- neuvers. Bigger and stronger nets, de- signed to stop and entangle an attacking submarine itself, now arc strung across the entrances to every British port, however. (See-U-BOATS, Page 12) WASHINGTON, Oct. 5. ator Nye (R.-N.D.) demanded to- day that the administration agree to divorce proposed repeal of the arms embargo from its "cash and carry" program of neutrality legis- lation. Proponents of the administration legislation, he charged, "are taking I the position that "repeal of the i embargo must be effected before other provisions of the pending neutrality bill, which would restrict the nation's foreign trade, could be enacted. That, he asserted, "misleads the people and jeopardizes the peace of the United States." "There is no good he told his colleagues, "why we should not have both the arms embargo and the cash and carry provision." One of the leaders of the opposi- tion to the bill in its present form, Nye declared; "There can toe quick passage, through the Senate and through the House, of legislation to provide a cash-and-carry provision to cover all commerce which is not covered by the existing embargo law. Against Repeal "I want that kind of law, have wanted it for a long time, -have proposed and stood with others here in urging its enactment into law. I now stand ready to do any- thing' possible to bring about the passage of that kind of legislation, but not if the repeal of the arms embargo is the price to paid for it." Nye took the floor after Senator j Tobey (R.-N.H.) had spoken in support of his proposal, first ad- vanced yesterday, to split the pres- ent bill in two, enact now the ship- ping controls and other similar pro- visions, and take up later the ques- tion of repealing: the embargo. While the historic debate forth on the Senate floor for the fourth day Senator George (D.-Gn.) told reporters that he expected Democratic authors of the pending bill to meet "soon" and consider modification of the shipping and financial provisions. On the House side, Rep. Mtindt (R.-S.D.) charging "strategists" of the arms embargo repeal drive with committing "a sly legislative demanded that the House be permitted a full 30 days debate on neutrality legislation. Sly Trick "The strategists of the (embargo) repeal drive have resorted to a sly legislative trick in an effort to de- prive House members from having due opportunity to consider any legislation now passed by the Sen- he said. At the While House, Senator Bridges after H confer- ence with President Roosevelt, told reporters he was in "just the same position as I was before" on neu- trality. Senator Overtoil followed Nye in the Senate. Urging retention of the arms embargo, he argued Unit the sale of armaments to European belligerents would constitute "armed' intervention on the part of Amer- ica." Carrying on the opposition argu- ment to the administration's neu- trality bill, the Louisiana Senator asserted: "Let us not entertain the fond delusion that raising the embargo is not a step toward war. Soon the American dollar will be following American arms and the American flag and the American soldier will (Sec NEUTRALITY, Pnjir, Russian-German Fron tierEs ta blished Through Poland As Soviet Pushes For Strangle Hold On Baltic State An old. law 'of Chester, England, requires "a man to raise his hat when a funeral passes. MOSCOW, Oct. 5. Russia and Germany have signed an additional protocol to their. friendship and border treaty, fixing a precise frontier between them in conquered and partitioned Poland. The protocol was dny for Russia by Premier-Foreign Commissar Vyacheslaff Molotoff and for Germany by her Ambassa- dor to Moscow, Count Friedrich Von Der Schulenberg, (The boundary had been set pre- viously in the treaty signed Sept. 2S at Moscow, but was identified only by a map attachad to the pact.

Turkish Foreign Minister Sukru Saracoglu, having received instruc- tions from Ankara, expected to resume negotiations al the Krem- lin, possibly today.
