PRICE FIVE CENTSOuber Gustav Defenses Crack 'Three Major Targets In Germany Blasted * LONDON, Sunday, May 14—(AP)—Two thousand U. S. bomber and American-Allied fighters hammered three major targets in northern Germany yesterday and shot down 63 Nazi planes in sky duels which cost the invading Americans 12 bombers and IO fighters. Up to 750 Flying Fortresses and Liberators, escorted inland by nearly 1,000 U. S. Lightnings, Mustangs and Thunderbolts, and covered in their withdrawal by hundreds of RAF Mustangs, attacked a Focke-Wulf plant at Tutow, rail yards and locomotive repair shops at Osnabruck, a synthetic oil refinery in the Stettin area and other targets. W  — The formation was part of total of approximately 5,000 Fights Seen ’For Texas' Demo Meet AUSTIN, May 13—(AP) New and substantial indications today were that the May 23 state Democratic convention here will be a lulu, if not a downright brawler. The convention issue is flatly whether Texas will send lo the ^national presidential nominating session at Chicago a delegation that is for or against a fourth term nomination for President Roosevelt. Both pro-Roosevelt and anti-Roosevelt forces during the past ^week turned on the steam, and there was yet no clean-cut indication as to how county delegations will finally stand. It Is quite possible that strong feeling on both sides may be given ample vent be fore the state convention, thus Avoiding the sort of row that open ed the Waco presidential session four years ago. These are the latest developments: Todav Gov. Coke R. Steven-0 son said he is not inclined to accept an invitation to be keynoter and temporary chairman of the convention; he told his press conference he hopes a man satisfactory to both sides ^ can be found. (Stevenson, as governor, is titular party leader in Texas.) Today, former state Senator Alvin J, Wlrtz, former under-secretary of the interior, issued a for-Amal statement here, saying "a few '•self-constituted bosses in the state executive committee” have been maneuvering to send a "hand picked delegation of Roosevelt-haters to the Chicago convention.” Wirtz said “they pretend friendship for Athe President in order to induce a majority of Texas Democrats to endorse their plan of sending an uninstructed delegation to Chicago.” A plan is under study to set up headuarters In Austin for lining up members of uninstructed delegations for a fourth term, although none of the advocates of this plan has yet permitted use of his name in connection with it. American and British planes which hurled 8,000 tons of explosives on occupied Europe in two-way attacks from Britain and Italy during the day. The bag of 63 German planes, 54 by the fighters and nine by bomber gunners, made a two-day total of 213 Axis aircraft shot down over Germany. No enemy opposition was met over Osnabruck, the German pilots instead ganged up on the formations which flew deep Into northeastern Germany. "Many enemy fighters were driven off or destroyed by our escort before they could reach our bombers.” the communique said. The major blows in the daylong attacks began around midnight when British night bombers lash ed out from home bases at targets In and from Italian bases at rail june tions in northern Italy.

As the onslaught roared through its 29th day, it closed a week in which there was hardly a single hour when Allied bombs were not exploding on Nazi-held soil. So many targets were hit in the past seven days that to record an accurate total was almost impossible. The Luftwaffe, which lost 150 planes Friday, again sent up swarms of fighters to challenge bombers raiding Tutow and other long distance objectives from the west today, but many refused battle and Americans hitting Osnabruck met scarcely any opposition. Hundreds of light Allied bombers shuttled back and fourth over northern France and Belgium, ripping airfields and rail yards feeding the Nazi Atlantic wall. Although Berlin told of terrific battles over Germany, the first American airmen back from the attack on Osnabruck said Nazi fighter resistance was negligible after Friday’s duels in which 150 German planes were shot down at a rost of 42 American bombers and IO fighters. Osnabruck Is a highly important rail center in the Ruhr, a junction of four main lines. Tutow, 105 miles north of Berlin and 35 miles east of the Baltic sea port of Rostock, was the second of several tarkets attacked in northern Germany. It was the 16th operation in 13 days for the American heavy bombers, and they left their British bases just a few hours after about 750 RAF night bombers had dumped 3,-000 tons of bombs on rail targets at Louvain, and other targets in northwest Germany and France at a cost of 14 planes. ing the money to be picked up at Camp Barkelev I the USO. base along Two of the USOs prepared spe-Abi-1 ciai stationery for Mother's Day please \ and for the past two weeks it was in constant demand.
