No Indication Nazis Mpde Any Effort at Invasion of England
Secret Papers Tell of Pions; RAF Decided It Before Hitler Ready; Hitler Decided Early to Attack Russia
By ROGER D. GREENE
WASHINGTON, Sept. 23.—(AP)—The war department said today that so far as could discovered from the mass of secret nazi war documents, no German attempt to invade England ever was made.
A war department official said no evidence had been found to support reports—current both before and immediately after the Allied invasion of Normandy in June, 1944— that Hitler had made an abortive attempt to send a fleet of invasion barges to England.

Indicates Further Swing el Truman Nearer lo Right
Harriman Has Dealt Successfully with Russians, It Well Liked by Them
By WILLIAM T. PEACOCK
WASHINGTON, Sept. 23 (/Pi— W. Averell Harriman’s addition to President Truman’s official family edged it further away today from domestic issue views espoused by Henry Wallace and united it on policy toward Russia.
The present ambassador to Britain. tapped by Mr. Truman to replace the ousted Wallace as secretary of commerce, is widely credited, in fact, with having had a major hand in framing the present policy of firmness toward the Soviets.
It was Wallace’s public disagreement w ith this policy which led the president to dismiss him from the cabinet on Friday.
Popular With Russians
Harriman gained his ideas of how to deal with the Russians first in handling lend-lease aid to them and later in more than two years as ambassador to Moscow. In personal relations, those ideas worked. He was highly popular.
Politically, the new secretary-designate is, like Wallace, a republican turned new dealer. Now 55, Harriman was born to wealth and becarve a Wall street banker. i.«„anc* a br°tber inherited some $100,000,000 from their father. E H. Harriman, the railroad (Union Pacific) magnate.
But he supported Al Smith, the unsuccessful democratic presidential nominee in 1928, and came under the new deal banner when the late President Roosevelt unfurled it in 1932.
No Hint of CIO Pac
Despite this new dealish background. Harriman is far away from Wallace on many social and economic issues. There is no tinge in the appointment of any bid I to the CTO political action com-and other groups which follow' Wallace.
With the appointment, Mr. Truman now’ has a cabinet almost entirely of his own selection. Naval Secretary James Forrestal, appointed to the cabinet May IO* 1944, on the death of Frank Knox’ is the only remaining cabinet appointee of the late President Roosevelt.
In the changes, the general appraisal among politicians-is that the cabinet’s political complexion las shitted to the right a hit from w hat President Roosevelt used to call the “left of center” course of his administration.
The White House announced the Harriman appointment yesterday under circumstances which indicated Mr. Truman was of a mind to make a replacement and close out the whole Wallace incident^ as quickly as possible.

Jews Try To Swim Ashore, Rounded Up
Fight at Sea Sunday Costs One Life as Other Jews Try To Slip Into Palestine
By CARTER L. DAVIDSON
JERUSALEM. Sept. 23 <J>i-Nearly a hundred Jewish refugees on the illegal immigrant ship Palmakh leaped overboard and tried to swim ashore at Haifa today. They were rounded up within two hours by the British Army and Navy.
Some 800 to 900 Jew’s attempted to slip into Palestine aboard the 200-ton schooner yesterday, but were stopped by the Royal Navy in a fight at sea that cost one of them his life. The army and navy planned to transfer them to H.M.S. Empire Hwywrood this afternoon for deportation to Cyprus.
Army officers tried to persuade the refugee aboard the Palmakh to send a delegation to talk over arrangements for their transshipment. They refused and almost IOO attempted a desperate dash for the promise# land.
Some Towed By Ropes
Police and navy launches picked up swimmers between ship and shore, and six British soldiers dived in to the water, fastened ropes to some of the swimmers and towed them to the launches.
All Jewish shops closed in Haifa this morning and two Rabbis led a procession in protest against a British refusal to turn over the body of the refugee killed when a boarding party forced its way onto the Palmakh early yesterday.
British soldiers at a roadblock fired over the heads of the marchers to stop them. The crowd then broke up at the urging of moderate leaders. Later Haifa was reported quieter, but troops still cardoned off the port area.
Jew's are required by their religion to bury their dead within 24 hours. The 24 hours were up this morning for the dead immigrant.
Met Lively Resistance
The minesweeper Rowena sighted the Palmkh yesterday about three miles off Ras En Naqura, near Palestine’s northern frontier. The government said that sailors who tried to board the schooner ran into a shower of missiles and stout resistance. After firing one shot and warning the refugees in English, French and Italian, they used tear-smoke bombs and fire hoses to quell the refugees. One immigrant was killed in the figh*

“We asked Keitel (Field Marshal Gen. Wilhelm Keitel) why they never sent a couple of divisions across Spain to Gibraltar, where they could have dominated the straits and made things very difficult for us in the Mediterranean," the war department official said.
“Keitel replied that Hitler insisted he couldn’t spare a single division for Gibraltar, so it seems clear that he could much less have spared 50.000 men for an attempt against England.”

PARIS, Sept. 23 (J*, — Th? United States, siding with Russia abandoned today the principle ol full compensation for Allice property losses in Romania. The move capsized the whole indemnify structure of the peace con ference.

Th* United States did not state what percentage of losses it would ask in compensation.
