Allied Headquarters in North Africa — (INS)— Slashing German attacks designed to dislodge British troops from the gateway of vital Catania were beaten back today as General Dwight D. Eisenhower announced spreading mutiny by Italian troops commanded by Nazi officers in Sicily.
While news of widespread desertions coincided with capture of at least two additional Italian generals and thousands of trooos, an official communique disclosed the Germans ar® making a desperate stand less than three miles south of Catania in a last ditch effort to hold the Sicilian city.
Everett L. Totemeier, 23. son of
Glenn Totemcier of Mount Union, won his navy “Wings of Gold" and was commissioned an Ensign in the Naval Reserve this week following comple-n n of the prescribed flight training course at the Naval Air Training Center, Pensacola, Fla , the “Annapolis of the Air."
Having bpen designated a Naval Aviator, Ensign Totemeier will go on active duty at one of the Navy’s air cp‘ rational training centers before being assigned to a combat zone.
The Germans called up all their reserves and threw their best Hermann Goering units into action replacing infantry with picked parachutists and drew off Nazi troops from central Sicily that had been opposing the United States 7th army.
