FOR WASHINGTON
(Continued from Rage One)
now. More than $50,000,000 has
been spent at Camp Davis.
“It is ideally suited for intended
uses and the need exists. The City
Uouncn in sessiuii mu. uaic xt
quests you to do all you can to
keep the camp operating for in
tended purposes. Keeping the camp
going means much to Wilmington
and it stands ready to work and
cooperate in any possible way. If
local delegation will help, please
advise.”
Major General Ralph Royce,
commanding officer of the Person
nel Distribution Command at
Louisville, Ky., of which Camp
Davis is a part, expressed the op
inion yesterday in his discussions
with General Usher, that perhaps
the volume of returnees to Camp
Davis was not sufficiently large to
warrant maintaining the local
camp for this purpose any longer.
Since the number of returnees
from the European tHeatre should
by now have reached the peak
load, there is slight reason to ex
pect that the number of men re
turning to Camp Davis will be
appreciably increased in the fu
ture.
General Usher said that from his
talks with Gen. Royce he inferred
that since there are a number of
camps in this area doing a work
comparable to that at Camp Davis’
that Gen. Royce may presumably
decide to have Camp Davis
work absorbed elsewhere.

eran in the fifth in favor of Leroy
Pfund. Steve Mesnar and Woody
Williams, each drove in a pair
of runs, the latter with a two
base hit.
The Dodgers didn’t score until
the seventh when a pass to Ed
Stanky, Goody Rosen’s third

er. They rallied for three more
in the ninth on another pass to
Stanky, doubles by Augie Galan
and Dixie Walker and a single
by Howie Schultz.
Libke, with three hits, led the
Reds at bat, which enabled them

NATIONAL LEADER
NEW YORK, June 5— (IP)—The
St. Louis Cardinals moved to with
in two and a half games of the
National League lead by defeating
the New York Giants 7-5 today, as
Brooklyn bowed to Cincinnati.

reliver Ace Adams, in the seventh
inning gave the Cards the series
three'games to one.
With one tally already in and
two Redbirds on the basepaths
Adams took over for Brewer and
was greeted by a run-scoring single
by Ray Sanders and a two-rur,
double by Ken O’Dea, former
Giant. .
Four of the five Giant runs were
driven in by 19-year-old Carroll
(Whitey) Lockman, who made an
auspicious major league debut with
a two-run homer in his first time
at bat and followed with a double
in the fourth which tallied two
more. Lockman joined the Giants
earlier today, following his pur
chase from Jersey City of the In

GOP MEMBER SEES
DELAY ON MEASURE
WASHINGTON, July 5. —UPI— A
Republican leader saw the possibi
lity today that Congress may post
pone final action on the Bretton
Woods Monetary Agreements to
next fall, due to a Senate jam on
postwar international plans.
Senator Wherry (R-Neb)), Senate
Republican whip, said the admin
istration’s plans for Senate con
sideration of the United Nations
Charter and the Bretton Woods plan
are so closely calculated that “any
thing can happen.”
The Senate has cleared its decks
for Foreign relations committee
hearings on the Charter, beginning
Monday. Majority Leader Bark
ley (Ky) figures that will preoccupy
most Senators at least until the
following Monday, July 16, when he
plans to bring up the Bretton Woods
measure in hopes it can be finish
ed in a week.
Under that tentative program
opening debate on the Charter
would come next.
“I think there is a definite pos
sibility debate on the Bretton
Woods legislation won’t be con
cluded in the allotted week,”
Wherry told a reporter. “There pro
bably will*ba more debate than
there was in the House.
Wherry said he fee's the admin
istration will bring the Charter to
the Senate floor on July 23, after
two weeks of committee hearings,
even if debate is stilll going full
blast on Bretron Woods and that
legislation has to be pushed aside
temporarily.
In this event, Wherry said it
may be difficult—once the Charter
is ratified—to delay Congress va
cation plans any further.

Canadians Rioting
Because Of Delays
ALDERSHOT, Eng., July 5—UPl
Canadian soldiers rioted in the cen
ter of town again tonight for more
than two hours, repeating the tur
bulent scenes of last night in which
officials estimated 500 participat
ed, despite the appeal of one of
their officers to return to their
barracks.
The soldiers, apparently resent
ing delays in sending them home
ward, surged through streets break
ing windows and demonstrating
noisily.
The group entered one store
which sells beer and helped them
selves.
An unidentified Canadian officer
addres' 'id the crowd outside the
police tation and urged the sol
diers to return to their camp with-,
out further demonstrations. He as
sured the men they would be leav
ing for home soon and announced
some future sailing dates.
The demonstration followed a
similar outbreak last night when a
crowd of soldiers stampeded
through the downtown section.
