ABILENE, TEXAS, SUNDAY MOBNING, SEPTEMBEB 3, 1939~-THJRTY-SIX PAGESWARSAW, Sept. 2.—(AP)~Twenty-one dead and over 30 wounded were counted tonight after a German bomb had struck an apartment house in a Warsaw working-men's quarter. The bombs tore off the side of the apartment house as if it had been made of paper. Rescue workers still were clearing away the resultant pile- of debris in a search for further casualties when I inspected it.

One of the bombs had dug a crater fully twenty feet in diameter, and the open ground was piled high with furniture and belongings. In the center of a large park in the southern section of Warsaw, I saw where a bomb had struck a simple wooden dwelling, killing two persons and wounding one. In an open field near the Vistula river, where ten light bombs apparently had been released simultaneously, they had dug craters in a 100-yard circle.
PEACE OR WAR ANSWER DUE TODAY
Germans ClaimAdvance Like
BERLIN, Sept. 2— (AP)—Nazi troops moving swiftly but as effectively as a steamroller —according to high command communiques—tonight continued their advance over the lowlands and lakes of Pomorze (the Polish corridor) and hilly regions of Silesia.
At the same time the British and French ambassadors awaited the reply to their government's final -"warnings" delivered to the foreign office last night. Authoritative German sources said they did not know when Adolf Hitler's replies would be made.
Meanwhile, diplomatic relations with Poland were broken off in fact when Polish Ambassador Jozef Lipski left Berlin early today.
Parliament To HearReport On New
(By Th« Associated Press)Behind the guarded doors of the Reich chancellery in Berlin last night apparently lay the answer to whether a general European war would start today. France and Great Britain had given Germany a "last warning/' occasioned by Germany's two-day-old undeclared war with Poland. Chancellor Hitler had not yet replied.
The British-cabinet held a brief midnight meeting less than three hours after Prime Minister Chamberlain in an historic session of parliament delayed: decision on a declaration of war against Germany as a result of her invasion of Poland.
An announcement after the 45-minute session said no statement would be made today when parliament is scheduled to meet at noon (5 AM; CST) for Chamberlain’s report on results of last minute peace proposals advanced by Premier Mussolini.
