6 October 1943 - History
My heartiest thanks are given to my friend and fellow undergraduate of far distant Cambridge days, the Rev. A. Lukyn Williams, Vicar of Guilden Morden, and Examining Chaplain to the Bishop of Durham, for his kindness in revising the proofs and making many suggestions.
He mentions Lukyn Williams several times throughout the History of CMJ:
At the Islington Clerical Meeting in January 1892 the Jewish subject had a place, excellent papers being read by the Revs. C. H. Banning and J. E. Brenan on ” The present condition of the Jews” and again in 1895, when high class papers on ” The Evangelization of the Jews ” were read by Archdeacon Perowne of Norwich, and the Rev. A. Lukyn Williams. The latter’s illuminating paper on ” Methods,” embracing the experiences gained in London as head of the mission, was fruitful in its excellence.
THIS Period saw some veiy important developments in the work in London, where both in 1891, and again in 1895, radical changes took place. In the former year the Rev. A. Lukyn Williams, who had had a distinguished career at Cambridge, was appointed head of the mission, Principal of the College, and chaplain. It was thought that a triple arrangement of this kind, combining the superin- tendence of all the work under one head, might conduce to the greater efficiency of the mission. Mr. Williams brought to the discharge of his onerous duties a freshness and zeal, and new methods of work, which soon had gratifying results. He commenced by recognizing the fact that the Jews of London belong to three classes, the wealthy, the middle-class in the East End and elsewhere, and the foreigners, and that if all are to be reached each class must be dealt with in a different way. The wealthy can be influenced only through the press or by the organizations of the parish the second class can be visited, especially by non-Jewish workers and the third, attracted to a mission hall. To reach the first, a new publication, Jews and Christians, already referred to, was started.
To reach the second, missionaries were sent into all parts of London. For the third clas class, a hall for aggressive evangelistic work was secured at No. 4, Goulston Street, just two doors off the Whitechapel High Street, with a dispensary attached to it. For the more pastoral side of the work, one of the houses in Palestine Place was set apart as a mission centre, and the “Lewis Way” library, which consisted principally of standard Jewish works published before 1825, moved into it. The church, which of recent years had been less and less attended by residents in the neighbourhood, became more and more a special chapel for the mission. The Rev. F. L. Denman (now Secretary), was appointed assistant chaplain, and the Rev. H. O. Allbrook continued to render voluntary aid. The College received a large amount of Mr. Williams’ attention, the Rev. G. C. Daw, now Vicar of St. Mark’s, Dalston, remaining as resident tutor.
A special Committee, composed of experts, with the Rev. A. Lukyn Williams as adviser, is continuously at work revising the existing tracts, and bringing them up to date
Reflection and prayer: Lukyn Williams’ works, his commentaries, survey of Adversus Judaeos literature, and writings on Jewish evangelism, mark the high water-mark of 19 th century Jewish missions. A gentleman scholar and practitioner, he leaves a standard of scholarship, devotion and wisdom that is much needed today. Deo gratias!

Warden of the Central Society of Sacred Study in the Diocese of Ely and writer
WILLIAMS, ARTHUR LUKYN (b. 1853 d. 6 Oct 1943) Anglican clergyman and theological college principal.
With first class hons in theology at Cambridge in 1875, the youthful Williams (ordained deacon 1876, and priest 1877 to a Jesus College living) was commended to Bishop Barker, desperate for a principal of Moore Theological College, Sidney, Australia. Williams began enthusiastically at MTC in July 1878, keen to meet the demand for more ordinands as Sydney grew in population. But enrolments however remained modest, even though diocesan leadership knew that their own college must be the principal source of new clergy. He aimed for a uniform entrance exam, more clearly defined studies focussed on Old Testament, New Testament and church history, and an ‘Inter-Diocesan Board of Examination’ to assess the achievements of ordination candidates. Like his predecessors he battled colonial parsimony until his health declined in 1884 and he was forced to resign. He ‘was able to pursue his labours as scholar and author in the genial atmosphere of Cambridge until his death’ (Loane, Centenary History :60).

Arthur Lukyn Williams (1853-1943) was an English New Testament scholar at Jesus College, Cambridge. From 1878 until 1884 he was Principal of Moore Theological College in Sydney, New South Wales.  He was also a Christian apologist active in Christian mission to Jews.

6 October 1943 - History
Below is the complete text from the QuickTime movie presentation of Heinrich Himmler's Poznan speech of October 4, 1943.
Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler, the second most powerful man in Nazi Germany, speaks to SS officers for three hours in a secret meeting.
Himmler's recording survived the war. It is now in the National Archives in College Park, Maryland.
What you are hearing has not been edited.
Himmler is finishing talking about weapons factories.
Ich will auch ein ganz schweres Kapitel will ich hier vor Ihnen in aller Offenheit nennen.
Es soll zwischen uns ausgesprochen sein, und trotzdem werden wir nicht in der Öffentlichkeit nie darüber reden.
I also want to mention a very difficult subject before you here, completely openly.
It should be discussed amongst us, and yet, nevertheless, we will never speak about it in public.
Wie wir darüber niemals gesprochen haben und sprechen werden.
About which we have never spoken, and never will speak.
Es gehört zu den Dingen, die man leicht ausspricht. "Das jüdische Volk wird ausgerottet", sagt Ihnen jeder Parteigenosse, "ganz klar, steht in unserem Programm drin, Ausschaltung der Juden, Ausrottung, machen wir, pfah!, Kleinigkeit".
It is one of those things that is easily said. "The Jewish people is being exterminated," every Party member will tell you, "perfectly clear, it's part of our plans, we're eliminating the Jews, exterminating them, ha!, a small matter."
Yom Kippur War: Aftermath
Israel’s victory came at the cost of heavy casualties, and Israelis criticized the government’s lack of preparedness. In April 1974, the nation’s prime minister, Golda Meir (1898-1978), stepped down.
Although Egypt had again suffered military defeat at the hands of its Jewish neighbor, the initial Egyptian successes greatly enhanced Sadat’s prestige in the Middle East and gave him an opportunity to seek peace. In 1974, the first of two Egyptian-Israeli disengagement agreements providing for the return of portions of the Sinai to Egypt were signed, and in 1979 Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin (1913-92) signed the first peace agreement between Israel and one of its Arab neighbors. In 1982, Israel fulfilled the 1979 peace treaty by returning the last segment of the Sinai Peninsula to Egypt.
For Syria, the Yom Kippur War was a disaster. The unexpected Egyptian-Israeli cease-fire exposed Syria to military defeat, and Israel seized even more territory in the Golan Heights. In 1979, Syria voted with other Arab states to expel Egypt from the Arab League.
On the morning of October 6, 1943, a force of 9 destroyers and assorted landing craft under the command of Rear Admiral Matsuji Ijuin set sail from Rabaul headed for Vella Lavella to evacuate that island’s approximately 600-man garrison. In an early example of “leapfrogging”, American forces had bypassed Kolombangara and landed with little opposition at Vella Lavella on 15 August.
On the Afternoon of October 6 th , search planes sighted the Japanese force and six American destroyers in the area sailed toward the evacuation point at Marquana Bay. A group of three destroyers, Selfridge (DD-357), Chevalier (DD-451), and O’Bannon (DD-450), under the command of Captain Frank Walker arrived at their rendezvous point ahead of the other three destroyers commanded by Captain Harold Larson. Knowing that a Japanese scout plane had denied him the element of surprise, Captain Walker decided not to wait for Larson’s group before he engaged the much larger Japanese force.
Shortly before midnight, American torpedoes and gunfire turned the Japanese destroyer Yugumo into a flaming wreck, but the long odds soon asserted themselves. Chevalier had to be abandoned and only heroic damage control saved Selfridge from the same fate. The appearance of Larson’s destroyers convinced the Japanese commander to retire toward Rabaul. The Japanese had successfully evacuated the garrison at the cost of only one destroyer. However, Captain Walker’s daring and initiative underscored the certainty of eventual victory as the Allies wrested control of the Solomons Islands from the Japanese. займ онлайн без отказа
6 October 1943 - History
Our editors will review what you’ve submitted and determine whether to revise the article.
P-51, also called Mustang, a single-seat, single-engine fighter aircraft originally designed and produced by North American Aviation for the British Royal Air Force (RAF) and later adopted by the U.S. Army Air Forces (USAAF). The P-51 is widely regarded as the finest all-around piston-engined fighter of World War II to be produced in significant numbers.
The P-51 originated with an April 1940 proposal to the British Aircraft Purchasing Commission by the chief designer of North American Aviation, J.H. (“Dutch”) Kindelberger, to design a fighter from the ground up rather than produce another fighter, the Curtiss P-40, under license. The result was a trim low-wing monoplane powered by a liquid-cooled in-line Allison engine. Other fighters powered by non-turbo-supercharged Allisons, notably the P-40 and P-39, had shown mediocre performance, and the U.S. War Department had reserved turbo-supercharger production for four-engined bombers (the P-38 Lightning being the only exception at that point). Nevertheless, by using experimental data obtained from the U.S. National Advisory Committee on Aviation, Kindelberger’s team achieved a giant leap in performance. Their design, dubbed Mustang by the British, had a low-drag laminar-flow wing and an efficient low-drag engine cooling system that gave it exceptional speed and range. It had a maximum speed of about 390 miles (630 km) per hour and a combat range of roughly 750 miles (1,200 km). The use of external drop tanks nearly doubled its operational range to 1,375 miles (2,200 km). The only drawback was the Allison’s lack of an efficient high-altitude supercharger, which restricted the plane to low-altitude operations below 15,000 feet (4,600 metres). The Mustang first flew in October 1940, entered production in May 1941, and began combat operations with the RAF in April 1942. Some 1,579 Allison-powered Mustangs were produced. They were typically equipped with two .50-calibre nose-mounted and four .30-calibre wing-mounted machine guns, although one model had four 20-mm cannons and another (the A-36A) was a dive-bomber for the USAAF. They served as low-altitude fighters and as long-range photo-reconnaissance aircraft under the designation F-6, mostly with the RAF.
In the meantime, the British had experimented with Mustangs fitted with the powerful Rolls-Royce Merlin engine, and they discovered that the Merlin’s efficient mechanical supercharger gave the fighter outstanding high-altitude performance. North American quickly followed suit. The Merlin was already being produced under license in the United States by the Packard Motor Company, and by the summer of 1943 Packard Merlin-powered P-51s were coming off North American’s assembly line. Merlin-powered P-51s, equipped with jettisonable drop tanks, had an operational range of more than 1,600 miles (2,500 km), and they mounted their first long-range bomber escort missions over Germany in mid-December 1943. They quickly established ascendancy over Germany’s premier fighters, the Me 109 and the Fw 190. The P-51’s superiority was particularly evident above 20,000 feet (6,000 metres). By March 1944, P-51s were available in quantity and, in combination with drop tank-equipped P-47 Thunderbolts and P-38s, had taken the Luftwaffe’s measure in the daylight skies over Germany.
The crippling losses which the U.S. bombers had previously suffered were thereafter drastically reduced: in October 1943 as many as 9.1 percent of the Eighth Air Force bomber sorties credited with attacking their targets had failed to return, and a further 45.6 percent had been damaged. In February 1944 the corresponding figures fell to 3.5 percent and 29.9 percent. From that point, Germany was effectively under round-the-clock bombardment. Though fewer in number, the P-51 could penetrate deeper into German airspace than the other U.S. fighters and was better in air-to-air combat it thus played a disproportionately large role in the defeat of the Luftwaffe.
Approximately 1,500 Merlin-powered Mustangs were used by the RAF for daylight duties over Europe, and the plane was produced under license in Australia toward the end of the war. A few were delivered to Nationalist China. The most widely produced version was the P-51D. Fitted with a Plexiglas “bubble” canopy for all-around vision, it flew to a maximum speed of about 440 miles (700 km) per hour, reached an operating ceiling of almost 42,000 feet (12,800 metres), and was armed with six wing-mounted 0.50-inch (12.7-mm) machine guns. Hard points below each wing allowed the P-51D to be fitted with 500-pound (230-kg) bombs or three-shot 4.5-inch (114-mm) rocket launchers, bolstering its capabilities as a close air support platform. Beginning in the spring of 1945, later versions of the Mustang designed for extremely long-range operations flew over Japan from bases in the Mariana Islands. The photo-reconnaissance version of the Mustang, the F-6, was used in all theatres of the war by both the USAAF and the RAF. Unlike photo-reconnaissance versions of the P-38, the F-6 retained its armament, being used primarily in low-altitude operations where it might have to defend itself. Well-liked by those who flew it, the Mustang was not without vices careless fuel transfer could result in an out-of-tolerance centre of gravity and control problems, and the liquid-cooled engine, with its coolant jacket, radiators, and tubing, was far more vulnerable to battle damage than was the P-47’s air-cooled radial (making the latter the preferred machine for ground attack).
About 13,300 Merlin-powered Mustangs were produced in the United States. Though production contracts were canceled at war’s end, the P-51 remained in service with the Air Force for several years thereafter. P-51s, some taken out of “mothballs,” were used for ground-attack missions early in the Korean War (1950–53). Mustangs also were used by Nationalist forces in the Chinese Civil War and by Israel in the 1956 Sinai invasion. P-51s continued to serve in less-developed countries into the 1960s and last saw combat in Salvadoran hands during the 1969 Soccer War with Honduras.
LMUD Presents: This Day in Susanville History – October 16, 1943
The Torrey Rexall Drug Store on Main Street was looted of $500.50 last Saturday evening during open hours. Ardel Torrey, owner, discovered the loss about 8:20 p.m. shortly after he heard the crossbar of the rear door drop.
The thief apparently walked in with the ordinary customers. And then went to the office where he picked up the leather bag containing the money out of the unlocked safe. Torrey said the money was chiefly in twenty dollar bills.
Footprints were found leading out of a small window from the office and through the rear storeroom. The rear door can only be locked from the inside by a large crossbar. Torrey said he locked it at 6 p.m. as customary, and after he heard the large iron bar drop about 8:20 p.m. he discovered the door was unlocked.
Thinking that someone had gone out of the rear door at a later hour, he paid little attention until a few minutes later, when he stepped into the office and found things disrupted in the safe and discovered the loss.
Nothing else was apparently molested in the office. Torrey said the money is not ordinarily there.
Sources do not reveal the exact origin of this tropical cyclone. On 8 October, a developing tropical cyclone passed between the Revillagigedo Islands and Islas Marías. It moved rapidly northeastward and arrived on the coast of Sinaloa as an intense hurricane.
Mazatlán Observatory reported that the atmospheric pressure began dropping at 1:30 am on 9 October and fell 0.827 inches of mercury (28.0 hPa) in 8 hours, and reached a minimum of 958.6 millibars (28.31 inHg). At 1530 UTC 9 October, the hurricane made landfall just south of Mazatlán. At 9:30 am, the observatory reported winds of 134 miles per hour (216 km/h) for a period of 15 minutes, which period ended when the wind blew the anemometer loose.  The hurricane ranks as the strongest on record to strike the city.
The storm dropped little precipitation as it passed Mazatlán, but 2 inches (51 mm) fell on the afternoon of 9 October.
As the storm continued inland, it rapidly weakened and apparently dissipated over the Sierra Madre Occidental.  The storm apparently passed into Chihuahua and was predicted to continue into the southern United States,  though the remainder of its path is unknown. 
The cyclone dissipated over the state of Durango within a day after landfall.  Heavy rain developed across parts of Texas on 12/13 October 1943.

Moving ashore as a powerful hurricane, the storm destroyed the small towns of El Roble, now in Mazatlán Municipality, and Palmillas. The storm partially destroyed Villa Unión (a town now in Mazatlán Municipality) and severely damaged the port at Mazatlán. In these towns, approximately 100 persons lost their lives.  Though the storm was reported to have struck "without warning",  most residents in the destroyed cities ably reached safety in higher ground.  The hurricane destroyed about half of the buildings in Mazatlán, and near the ocean, the combination of strong waves, high winds, and rainfall heavily damaged many hotels and houses.  The storm damaged water systems, leaving people without potable water or sewage systems.  In a 50 miles (80 km) portion of the coastline, the storm severely impacted the communication and transportation infrastructure. The airport at Mazatlán sustained damage to its radio tower, and for at least 18 hours, the only communication between the city and the rest of Mexico was through the radio of a plane in the airport.  Total damage was estimated at $4.5 million (1943 USD, $56 million 2008 USD). 
Of several fishing boats and a small Mexican Navy vessel caught in the storm, no trace reportedly was found all persons aboard these vessels apparently died. A small coastal boat arrived in the port of Mazatlán after the storm and reported six crew members missing. 
Within two days after the storm, the death toll rose to 18  the next day, the Associated Press reported 52 deaths and 102 injuries.  Ten days after the storm, military officials reported the death toll rose to 57,  and the number of people left homeless by the storm reached over 1,000. 
By 24 hours after the storm, President Manuel Ávila Camacho ordered nurses and doctors on standby, and for military workers in the area to prepare to assist in the aftermath.  By five days after the storm, officials had restored power and communications in the area. Around the same time, the president issued an appeal for public donations for storm victims.  Within a week, citizens sent large quantities of food, clothing, and medicine to the worst affected areas.  The President of Mexico personally visited Mazatlán with other officials, bringing aid in the form of medicine and clothing. 
Only two other intense hurricanes struck Mazatlan during the period of record: Hurricane Olivia (1975), which hit the city with winds of 115 miles per hour (185 km/h), and a storm in 1957.  However, Hurricane Tico (1983) moved ashore very near the city as a major hurricane.
