WINS APPROVAL (Continued from Page One) 000,000 Santee-Congaree develop ment, will be considered separate ly later. Broad technical provisions on ir rigation and power distribution by ♦he Secretary of the Interior were left out of the bill because they were covered in a 51,000.000,000 flood control authorization approv ed last year. The biggest project in the new bill is the 560,000.000 Alabama-Coo sa waterway. Next is the $58,625, 000 Snake river program. The bill also authorizes the $49, 470,000 Umatilla Dam on the Co lumbia river to be named "Mc Nary Dam" in honor of the late Senator Charles L. McNary of Ore gon. Overton, recalling the ‘ rocky road" over which the legislation was dragged by the old Congress, said passage assured t h e Army Engineers of time to prepare blue prints so the projects will be ready for construction when peace comes. He added that much of the money would go for jobs. Senator Aiken (r-Vt), who fought for days to tack the long-debated St. Lawrence Seaway to the bill last year, made no similar attempt today but he has announced he will seek approval of the project in a separate bill. The Missouri Valley Authority proposal likewise will be treated in a separate bill. President Roose velt wants an MVA to administer a multimillion dollar program for the Missouri Valley as authorized by the flood contral bill. There also will be new legisla tion relating to proposals to ex clude the Central Valley (Calif.) iffigation project from reclama tion law limitations. -V BERLIN 93 MILES FROM RED FORCES (Continued from Page One) slightly to regroup and re-equip the armies.

The blit2 tactics have brought dividends ex ceeding the most optimistic expec tations. “Meanwhile the Soviet lines have become highly extended while the German lines have shortened. “Before risking the final plunge the Red Army needs a certain de gree of regrouping and bolstering of forward spearheads.’’ -V International Activity Sets ‘Big Three' Stage (Continued from Page One) State in the absence from Wash ington of Secretary Stettinius. Newsmen asked for a "fill in” ir view of the earlier announcement from London that Hopkins had visited the British capital and Par is and had gone on to Rome for a talk with the Pope; and also in view of London reports last week that the British were being given assurances about the main lines of American foreign policy. Grew declined to make any com ment on the record. Another question which came up at his conference was at least in directly related to the discussions abroad, since it involves Allied ac tion on German war criminals. Grew was asked whether the State Department was making renewed efforts to obtain funds for Ameri can participation in the United Na tions war crimes commission at London. He said yes, that a new request had been made for the money. Congress refused late last year to vote the appropriation; and a few days ago the State Depart ment relieved Herbert C. Pell, American representative, from his assignment to the commission. Pell is an advocate of punishing Germans for atrocities committed against their own Jewish people. Grew declined to say whether Pell would be sent back to Europe if Congress finally does come through with the funds.

BY LEO S. DISHER IN THE U. S. LINES ON THE WESTERN FRONT. Jan. 29—(UP' —It’s 10:30 in the morning and high above, five miles in the air, columns of Flying Fortresses and Liberators with fighter planes flirt ing around them are entering Ger many. They disappear but 16 minute; later, deep in enemy territory, they break radio silence, and the voice of bomber and fighter pilots crackle through the radio at this ground post. The leader of Fortress Group A for Amsterdam says: “Have bom ber trailing and it will turn back Will you cover?’’ ‘ Roger,” responds the fighter es cort. The Mustang fighters of Group / WALLACE REVERSES STAND ON CABINET (Continued from Page One) sive Democratic party as a na tional force.” ‘‘Thosse who are fighting me. . are fighting against the surviva of capitalism and free enterprise,' he said. He described the RFC as “cer tain to be a headache for anyone.’ ‘‘While the Senate would relieve me of a great burden by giving me Commerce without RFC,” he said, “I feel that from the stand point of the 60.000,000 workers, the profits of business, the income of farmers, the welfare of the coun try as a whole, and the protectior of the United States Treasury, 1 could do a better jol* if the twc were combined than if the twc were separated. “Undoubtedly,” he said, “many good m°n could be found to head the loan agency, but I wish tc make it clear to you that if there were serious danger of a “too-lit tle’ and ‘too-late’ man being ap pointed, I would prefer not to be Secretary of Commerce.” Wallace said that “economic il literacy” caused the “smash of 1921, the crash of 1929” and ’’eco nomic illiteracy is not dead.” Speaking with him was Henry J. Kaiser, West Coast shipbuilder who said “Wallace exemplifies the liberal tradition” and urgec that the country unite “in the spir it of liberalism” to insure “the maximum use of all the resources of men, materials and technology so vital to the prosperity and se curity of a world at peace.” Wal ter P.

Anti-aircraft fire evidently is getting heavy as the leading For tress start bombing the initial tar gets. Dne fort is hit, drops behind, calls for fighter cover. It says to the approaching fighter: ‘'Hello, Jackson Six Three. What you doing down here?’’ “I’ve come to take you home,” the fighter pilot replies. Fighters report to bombers: ‘‘Your bombs all over target. Flak heavy.” A fighter pilot calls to his group leader: “Hello Bourbon, hello Bourbon. This is Highball Blue Three. Ever green One Four has a wounded gunner aboard. They want to set down back on our side. They want fighter cover.” “Okay, tell Evergreen One Four to peel out of formation and we will pick him up.” A few minutes later Highball Blue Three says: “Calling Bourbon. Evergreen One Four says the kid just died so they’re gonna stick to formation.” No enemy planes appear. There is only heavy flak to impede the bombers. Now they are on their way home. As the first two attack forces clear enemy territory, a fighter asks di rection of a Fortress, saying a man in his group is in “pretty bad trouble.” The bomber replies: “You’re over friendly territory.” Suddenly a Mustang pilot yells: “This thing has had it—I’m bail ing out.” His wing man yells right back: “Get out of it! Get out of it!” We gather a Mustang suddenly dives in flames because a pilot is heard yelling to his fellows: “I saw his chute open.” -V PATTON SMASHES BACK INTO REICH (Continued from Page One) indicated that the Germans had pulled back into the main belt of fortifications of the Siegfried Line, which on the Betglan-Luxembourg sector runs from two to three miles east of the German border.

McNaughton at this very critical time every opportuni ty for the fullest possible service to Canada’s army overseas.” He added that “very important” matters would continue to' demand McNaughton’s closest attention in "efforts now being put. forth to bring the war to its close just as quickly as possible.” ine nominees in me uy-eieuuun are McNaughton; Air Vice Mar shal A.
