The ships total 120,000 tons Thirteen are togo to Ger­many and twenty-two to Italy. This was announced by the Ministry of Economic Warfare in London yesterday The ships include four tankers, totalling 37,000 tons. Three ships have so far gone, and these have reached Genoa. [Vichy radio disclosed yester­day that French naval specialists had left for Ger­many.] A railway expert at the Ministry of Economic Warfare revealed that the Nazis had removed railway points and cross-tracks from occupied countries, n c 1 u ding the coastal areas of France, to deny the use of the railways to a landing army. This, he added, was fresh evidence of the Nazis’ fear of an Allied invasion of the Continent. The Duchess of Kent—first picture at a public cere­mony since the tragic air death of the Duke.

Idle shipyards must be opened’ DEMAND that idle shipyards shall be reopened In the shortest possible time Is made by the Select Committee on National Expenditure- In a report on merchant shipping and repairs, published yes­terday as a White Paper, the Committee states:" A survey should be made of all unused yards, and those which can be brought into use in the shortest time should be selected for re- “Many are either empty or used for storage, and it is a matter for regret that the complete re-equipment of de­relict yards was not putin hand many months ago. IT IS ALL THE MORE URGENT THAT IT SHOULD BE BEGUN NOW.” Urging publication of our shipping losses the Committee says: “Yard committees snbuld be used to remove misconcep­tions in the minds of the workers which discourage pro­duction. “The possibility of giving some facts about shipping losses, not necessarily in the form of a monthly statement, should be considered from the point of view of stimulating output.” Pre-fabrication ol hull por­tions should be carefully ex­amined from the point of view of economy of labour. Slackness Must Stop Boy of 10 called up nOUGLAS GEORGE 1 HENRY WIMBLE, of Bath, was called up yesterday and his mother went with him to the National Service office. He said he would like togo into the Navy, but was told to comeback in a few years’ time,. Douglas is only ten. HUN DRIVE CAUCASUS OLD LADY GAVE HER TREASURE Her most precious family treasure has been forgiven war salvage by 78-year-old Mrs. MaryAnn Hicks, of the almshouses at Kingerby, near Lindsey, LincsJ It is a 200-year-old copper warming pan, which she has regularly used until recently. GAVE HIS LIFE IN SECRET EXPERIMENT rpHESE dangerous things have to be done,” said the coroner yesterday at an inquest on David Howard Milton Homer, a young scientist who was killed during a “dangerous experiment.” I am quite satisfied that no blame attaches to anyone, but I have no doubt that the powers that be will consider whether anything can be done to make things easier.’ He was assured that ways and means to do this were being considered. Evidence was given in secret. No one will know what the “dangerous experiment” was David Horner was Just one of those who, day after day, risk their sight, or a limb— even their lives—to find some extra knowledge which will contribute to victory Their battlefield is the laboratory. In life they are un­known. In death it can only be recorded—for security reasons —that they “died accidentally.’* That was the verdict—and the epitaph—of David Horner IS FIEI THOUGH Soviet troops have cut ofl the Caucasus mountains and a them out, the enemy are pressing ion south-east of Nalchik. The thrust is being made eastwar said Moscow radio last night. Hund: are being used. Paris radio declares that the Germa from Ordzonikhidze, starting place of the Transcaucasian oil region. The threat to Tuapse, Black Sea nav eased by counter-attacks which have f ground. Several German groups were surroi 30,000 Huns Die Nazi losses in the Caucasus during the last fortnignt have been very high. Moscow, radio says that 30,000 of the enemy have been killed in the Mozdok and Nalchik fighting. The Stalingrad garrison have beaten off attacks in several sectors, killing 1,000 of Von Hoth’s infantry and panzer crews. A unit of Soviet marines re­pulsed all assaults in one area and threw the Germans out of two blocks of houses. A num­ber of other houses were cleared German attempts to capture a Volga Crossing were defeated. Despite violent air attacks the marines stood firm. HER TWIN HABIT Two pairs of twins within a year have been inborn New York to Mrs. Edward Schwabel, wife of a tramdriver Triple blue pilot killed Pilot-Officer Claude Thesiger Ashton,' triple Cambridge Blue and England and Corinthian footballer, has been killed oh active service with the RAF. Squadron-Leader R. De W.K. Winlaw, Cambridge Double Blue, has also lost his life. Ashton joined the RAF after war broke out and six months ago volunteered to fly, reverting from the rank of squadron- leader to do this. He was one of the three famous Ashton brothers. In turn each captained Cam­bridge at 'cricket, Gilbert in 1921, when the three brothers all played against Oxford, Hubert in 1922 and Claude in 1923 Referring to “misconcep­tions ”among shipyard workers, the Committee outpoints that the pre-war practice of stopping work a few minutes before time has grown since the war, partly because of the difficulty of transport. “It is no uncommon thing,” says the Committee, “for a large part of the yard to stop working a quarter of an hour, sometimes even longer,, before the proper time.’1 For slackness of this kind the Committee feels the cure must besought in a change in the attitude of workers towards their work. If workers are not doing satis­factorily work for whiCn they have been reserved, their re­servation §hould be withdrawn. Yard committees should have power to recommend de-reserva- tion. The Committee estimated that workers in British ship­yards are doubling the output per man in tons of steel of American yards. Side by side with her men in the front line, the woman sitting in front of the desk h«_ stood, and so had those waiting their turn to take the same seat. They are Russian women soldiers, captured by the Germans while defending their homeland. And now they are asked questions about the men still infighting front.AL ^eyes the fl< Mrs. blond at Li fords guard pay 9 : A tha absi She ag be I It 'her ii wast efforts togo She cara dows. would for h for, tt Husbi Eva in thi dren n e a i tone consic E 1 rr med face tod sent The denU j tional self tne chano 1 order peatfct said \Mar that t when visit 2 the U one sand ii no tiThe Closed Secret deput: ance < pointe ditions la:the regal'd get dr“ I’m leaving the leather to those who need it, Mr Barratt.
