SMITH’S REMOVAL
fROM POST AIRED
WASHINGTON, Sept. 9.-UP)-/.
"dement over campaign me
i!S38 was reported tonight tc
^' eceded the decision by Ma.
kaVLt Gen. Holland M. Smith,
landing 'all American forces
Saipan, to relieve Maj. Gen.
""loh Smith of his command.
“I Marine general, in response
, Lestions. said at a news con
ce today that he had been
!ereB d’' to relieve General Ralph
,0hh from command of army for
Smlin Saipan operation, but de
"S ,, ,o relate the circumstances.
(!'.m not giving to passing th-e
1 ■. he said, “but as you seek
■k concerning this incident, I
ieta d you that General Smith is
relB‘my officer and I must refer
anou to the war department.”
5 The war department promptly
-d back to the Marine the
f0S of whether any public ex
Sion was to be made. A
uokesman
“General Holland Smith was
Xci in stating that it was his
responsibility and prerogative, op
ling under the principle of um
' command, to make whatever
Lenment he believed necessary
fc regard to his subordinates.
"Since the decision of the change
- command was properly his, the
Ions for that change should be
properly given by him.”
Tliere the matter stood officially,
tat the account circulating in mil
jlary circles was this.
The two generals disagreed on
methods of conducting the cam
naien The Marine favored quick
Ld drives to end it as promptly
..possible. The army man advo
cated a slow, more cautious cam
paign.
Tivo schools of thought have al
ways existed in military circles on
Cie’se points, each contending their
favored method curtails casualty
lotals. Those advocating quick de
cisive battles argue that although
initial losses may be high, the
prompt victory will be less costly
in the end by reducing the period
0f time in a campaign. On the oth
er hand, those supporting slow
and cautious moves contend that
their method holds down casualties
throughout a campaign.
Army General Smith, 50, was
given the Legion of Merit last Ap
ril for his training and direction of
army troops which took part in the
capture of Makin in the Gilbert is
lands and Eniwetok in the Mar
shalls. From Saipan he returned to
Honolulu and it was announced in
Mv of this year that he had been
given command of an infantry di
vision in Hawaii.

Dewey said:
"I never invite myself to private
discussions.”
"May I ask you about the extent
of collaboration at the conference
between Mr. Dulles and Secretary
Hull—was that point brought up
to your being advised as to
*fot goes on at the Roosevelt -
Churchill conference?” a reporter
asked.
"'-es,” Dewey replied, ‘‘that was
included in the joint statement that

Dulles, that Mr. Dulles was

I don't believe there was .any

^kr, however, he said he did
not think the agreement between
and Dulles went beyond the
“Wt postw’ar security and

Asked if he thought the Roose

a percentage price increase. The
formula for determining the price
increase will be announced in about
10 days.
The war mobilization director de
tailed contract termination and
other reconversion plans worked
out for industry, in accordance with
recommendations of Bernard M.
Baruch, and proposed in addition
steps which will affect the living
habits of virtually the entire popu
lation in starting the transition to
peace-time economic pursuits.
Proposals
Among his recommendations or
forecasts were:
1—Return to the 40-hour work
week, “except to take care of pro
duction necessary to the war ef
fort and some specially tight labor
areas.’’ This would mean a sharp
reduction in “take home’’ pay for
thousands of workers now getting
pay at the rate of time-and-a-half
for work over 40 hours.
2 — Abandonment of manpower
controls to facilitate transfer of
workers from curtailed war pro
grams to civilian production.
3 — Retention of existing price
ceilings on civilian goods which
have been produced throughout the
w ai *
4 — Removal of additional foods
from the ration list “as soon as
supplies justify removal.”
5— Increase of gasoline allowan
ces for civilians in “certain areas”
as V-E day will reduce war needs
but continuation of rationing.
6— That Congress appropriate up
to $2,000,000,000 to carry out the
farm “support rice” commitment.
Byrnes said V-E day would release
approximately 8,000,000 tons of food
from the wartime reserve for other
uses and the reduced demand
might bring market prices below
the support price, forcing the gov
ernment to “buy the surplus if it
is going to support prices.”
7 — That Congress announce its
intention to drop the excess profits
tax, after the defeat of Japan, and
consider the advisability of allow
ing manufacturers to depreciate
new machinery substantially in the
years in which such machinery is
purchased. Byrnes said the excess
profits levy cannot be lifted on
V-E day because “we will still

The depreciation clause would en

version, he said.
8—Release of “many government
workers” as federal control ma
chinery is reduced.
9 — Reconsideration by Congress
of the Brynes proposal for a mini
mum weekly unemployment com
pensation of $20 for as long as 26
weeks. He said the state unem
ployment systems have accumu
lated reserves of $5,500,000,000 and
they should “now act to liberalize
the benefits and make the state
systems serve their true purpose.”
In discussing employment pros
pects Byrnes observed that “the
prosecution of the war against
Japan will demand the continued
production of great quantities of
war materials,” and said “basic
industries such as steel and tex
tiles will not be affected” by the
end of the European war.
He also indicated that shipyard
employment will continue at a high
level, saying “the maritime com
mission, like the navy, has a tre
mendous task to perform in the
war of the Pacific. The surrender
of Germany will not lessen the
necessity for the construction of
certain types of ships, but it will
make possible the cancellation of
some ships.”
But, Byrnes continued, it is “in
evitable that in some particular
industries and in some communi
ties there should temporarily be
reduced employment. This is more
likely to occur where the curtail
ment is in government - owned
plants engaged entirely in war pro
duction and having no plans for
civilian production.”
To meet this situation, Byrnes
has appointed a committee which
is now at work interviewing con
tractors to determine whether they
will exercise their options to buy
or lease the government - owned
plants.
RABINOF RETURNS
HERE OCTOBER 18
Plans are going forward for the
return engagement, at New Han
over high school October 18, of
Benno Rabinof, well-known Am
erican violinist, who is being pres
ented under auspices of the high
school orchestra.
Rabinof, with his accompanist,
Sylvia Smith, will play this year
an entirely different program.
Among the selectoins will be his
own transcription of Sarasate’s
“The Nightengale”, a composition
with great technical demands but
with rich and scintillating beauty.
There is a very interesting story
connected with Rabinof’s $40,000
Guamerius violin:
In the year 1742, Guarnerius, the
master violin maker, presented
three “Sister” violins to the world,
mates rich in tone and beautiful of
The first of the “Sisters” lies in
a museum in Genoa, the birthplace
of the first magician of violinist,
Paganini. This violin is seldom us
ed but is in perfect condition. In
1931 when Benno Rabinof toured
the continent, the Italians honored
him by taking him to this museum
where they brought the master’s
own violin from a showcase and in
vited him to play. Rabinof, con
scious of the honor, played Pagan
ini’s variation of “Nel Cor Piu Non
Mi Sento”, which translated means
“There Is a Sadness in My Heart”
and which is one of the most diffi
cult of violin compositions ever
written. He captivated his Italian
audience so that he was carried
back to his hotel on the shoulders
of his admiring listeners.
The second of the “sisters” was
purchased by Jascha Heifetz and is
the instrument that famed violinist
uses today in preference to all his
others.
The third was once Fritz Kreis
ler’s and this artist’s recordings,
which thrill the country, were made
on the instrument. Later, Bvno
Rabinof became its proud owner.
Its tone is rich, clear and full. This
instrument, considered to be one
of the rarest and most valuable in
the world today, has been nick
named “The Tiger” by Rabinof,
mainly because of the blending of
colors on its back, bringing vividly
to one’s mind the exetic beauty of
the jungle.
