Warsaw MayBe Suffering
Radio Becomes Suddenly
Budapest, Sept. 21—(AP)—The Warsaw radio lapsed into sudden silence early today shortly after what sounded like the explosion of artillery shells could be heard through its microphone.
The announcer had carried on far into the night despite the deep, periodic rumblings until the station suddenly went off the air halfway through the playing of a Polish military air.
Temporarily, at least, the only communication between the German-besieged Polish capital and the rest of the world was ended.
Silence came after the station had broadcast a grim story of Warsaw being shelled and bombed as never before and predicted "there probably soon will be a big offensive against us."
