Jittler had something to say however and he said it for 70 minutes in berlins sports Alst to a crowd which included Field marshal Erwin Rommel Home from the War in Africa. A we believe that we Shah continue to defeat our enemies until final Victory is that was the keynote of his speech which As usual rapped at Allied leaders. He enumerated German successes promised his enemies that he was ready for any second front and declared that Stalingrad was bound to fall.

Poll indicates gop to gain seats in House democrats will retain control estimates show by George Gallup director american Institute of Public opinion. Princeton n. J., oct. 4.�? with election Day just four weeks from next tuesday Republican prospects for winning additional seats in Congress look favourable. But the indications at present Are that the cop will not take control of the House. The Republican gains will not represent any important change in political sentiment but will come about largely because of a marked shrinkage in the total National vote which will affect the democratic candidates More than the republicans. 15 to 35 seats. On the basis of present estimates of turnout gop gains will be confined to Between 15 and 35 seats depending largely on How effective democratic party efforts Are in getting out the vote. From the institutes most recent views in selected areas throughout the country in the past two weeks the most Likely division of the House is estimated As follows est. Democratic seats .248 est. Republican seats. 183 other parties. I the Republican total is larger than the number won by the party in the last election�?162 seats. But it is still Short of the 218 necessary to win control of the House. 30 million turnout. From evidence at hand voting this november will be extremely Light. The Institute has estimated that Only 30 million people will go to the polls. This is to million below what would be Normal for a mid term election and 20 million below the turnout in 1940, which was a presidential year. By far the greater proportion of non voters will be democrats. Institute studies find that for every 1940 Republican who does not vote there will be two democrats. For that reason the Light turnout will actually help the republicans. The effect of turnout can most readily be visualized by comparing today a estimated democratic seat total of 248 with the number which the party would Likely win i if the turnout were Normal for a mid term election and 2 Czar takes control of inflation Battle Washington oct. 3�?oj.r a Price administrator Leon Henderson acting under the presidents anti inflation directives today established sixty Day emergency Price ceilings effective monday Over virtually All food items.
