CIVIL WAR MAY
RACE IN CHINA
(Continued from Page One)
En-lai intended to come to Chung
king for discuss'ons with the gov
ernment.
This was regarded however, as
an indirect indication that Com
munist leader Mao-Se-tung had not
accepted Chiang’s renewed appeal
that he come to Chungking to dis
cuss a peaceful settlement of out
standing issues.
Lt. Gen. Albert C. Wedemeyer, ■
commander of X/. S. forces in
China, stepped into the Hong Kong
picture to announce that British
and Chinese governments were ne
gotiating on whose forces should
cccupy the British Crown Colony.
(Prime Minister Attlee told Com
mons in London that plans for re
establishing British administration
in Hong Kong “are fully pre
pared.”)
Meanwhile the surrender prob
em in Manchuria took a new turn
with a government announcement
hat two of Chiang’s most trusted
generals, Chang Chi-chung and
Hsiung Shih-hui, had been appoint
sd to accept surrender of the Jap
anese troops in that area of Rus
sian-Japanese fighting. Q
There was no explanation of how
such a surrender would be ef
fected, since Japanese armies in
Manchuria were yielding to the vic
torious Russians.
The assumption was that the two
generals would take over any ter
ritory held by the Russians now or
in the tuture but subsequently evac
uated by them. However, Man
churia is in the China theater, in
which Chiang is the Supreme Com
mander.
uninese iroops nave ducau^ uc
’gun the occupation of the Northern
portion of French Indo-China, the
High Command confirmed tonight,
with the announcement of the li
beration of Caobang, about 15
miles across the frontier and 110
miles North of Hanoi, the Indo
china capital.
British troops have been assign
ed to occupy Southern Indochina.
(A British foreign office com
mentator reiterated that occupa
tion of Indochina by British and
Chinese troops was an “’extreme
ly transitory and temporary ar
rangement”)
The Chinese High Command said
cities from the Japanese was con
tinuing, with Chowkiakow, 70 miles
South of Kaifeng, and Tangho, the
same distance Southwest of Chow
kiakow, retaken. Both are in Ho
nan Province.
In Western Honan Chinese troops
entered Loning and Iyang, both on
a tributary of the Yellow river,
and the latter 82 miles Southwest
of the rail center of Chengshien.
American detachments were pre
pared to enter such key cities as
Nanking, Shanghai and Canton
with the Chinese. Gen. Wedemeyer
issued orders forbidding U. S.
troops from fraternizing with the
Japanese. He specified that all
contacts with the Japanese must
be courteous but impersonal.
DELEGATES MAY
LEAVE ON SUNDAY
City and County delegates and a
representative of the Chamber of
Commerce will leave for Washing
Ion probably Sunday night with
appeals from all three groups to
the Army Air Forces for use of
facilities at Bluethenthal Army
Air Base by commercial carriers,
it was learned last night.
Representing the County will be
Commissioner Harry Gardner,
while Walter J. Cartier, secretary
of the Chamber of Commerce, will
represent that body. The City’s
delegate is yet to be named.
The committee will carry with
it a letter from the Board ot
County Commissioners, signed by
Addison Hewlett, Sr., chairman, a
letter from the Chamber of Com
merce, signed by its president,
Charles Harrington, head of the
Hyman Supply Co., and a letter
from the City Council.
Both the letters of the Chamber
of Commerce and the letter of the
Board of County Commissioners
have been drafted and signed,
while the letter from the City
Councd has been authorized and
is expected to be signed within
the next day or so by Mayor Ron
ald Lane.
General contents of all three
communications will refer, to the
affect the end of the conflict with
Japan will have upon the Army
Air ,Forces’ training program, and
.request the use of facilities at the
Army Air Forces field at Wilming
ton for the use of commercial car
riers.
Although tentative arrangements
have been made to have the dele
, gates leave Wilmington Sunday
i night, there may be a delay, as
| the City Council is expected to
| meet Monday for finla approval
) of the City’s budget, and to pass
. on the tax rate for the ensuing
I fiscial year.

DURABLE GOODS
ATJ942 PRICES
(Continued from Page One)
The OPA chief laid down the
government’s policy on the prices
at which consumer durable goods
can come back on the market.
He listed only a few of the items
—and the price level they must
sell at—but more will follow. It
was the policy which was most
important to know.
Bowles put a ceiling—at 1942
levels—on washing machines, iron
ers, and aluminum pots and pans.
This’first pricing of consumer
durable goods by the government
also set another precedent:
Every ironer, washer and ppt
must be tagged with its retail ceil
ing, right at the factory.
To disgruntled manufacturers of
durable goqds Bowles said: make
a lot of goods at low prices. By
selling a lot, you’ll make good
money.
He said:
“We have our teeth set in the
cost of living. And we are going
to hang on like a Boston bull pup
until our services as inflationary
watchdog are no longer necessary.
“Let me say flatly that during
this critical reconversion period,
the cost of rent and food will re
main at present levels, that cloth
ing prices will be firmly held.”
New small businesses—whether
they make television sets or mouse
traps—“will get their business
fast.”
Bowies said they would be al
lowed to peg their prices at the
levels charged by makers of similar
products.
These prices will be set by OP A.
Factories which run at a loss
when working at normal volume
will get price increases big enough
to let them break even financially.
And price ceilings will be dropped
entirely next week on aluminum,
magnsium and mrcury.
magnesium and mercury.
These metals are so plentiful that
OPA doesnt consider ceilings nec
essary for them.
An oversight—when the Selective
Service law was re-written last
spring — is endangering the job
rights of homecoming veterans.
President Truman went to work
tod'ay to correct it. He said he
has specific recommendations to
make the job rights ironclad.
The original draft act—it was
eo expire May 15, 1945—guaranteed
each veteran his old job if he ap
plied for it within 90 days after
leaving the service.
It said this right would continue
even if the rest of the law was
wiped out by the President or Con
gress declaring the war at an end.
But his clause was lost when
the act was re-written in the spring
to continue it in operation until
May 15, 1946.
So now if Congress officially ends
the war—by saying it’s ended—the
veteran coming out of the service
after the date of that declaration
has no right to his old job, unless
the lost clause is back on the books.
This can be done by amending
the present draft law—to put back
the missing clause—or through a
special law.
Congress can be expected to act
quickly on this when it returns
next month.
The Eastern coal pinch will be
with us again this winter.
So said Interior Ickes. He said
the Army was “ill-advised” in its
report last week that lower mili
tary demands probably would end
the civilian shortage.
The 80 per cent limit on Eastern
household coal therefore sticks
this winter. There’s no such limit
on Midwest or western coal.
Maybe — but only maybe — Con
gress will be able to do something
about the sugar shortage. Senator
Stewart (D-Tenn.), chairman of a
Samall Business subcommittee,
said: .
“We ve got to turn our attention
to curtailing overseas shipments.”
This came after OPA said that
for the rest of 1945 there was no
more sugar in sight for civilians
than they have been getting.
Shoes and window screening —
About as scarce as anything in
recent months—had fairer chances.
The Army cancelled orders for
10,000,000 pairs of footwear. WPB
said screening might come back
soon, and revoked the limitations
on its use.
But the Army made a big con
tribution to the future well-being
of America by declaring surplus
1 1-2 billion dollars worth of war
plants.
If converted from shells and
radar to civilian things, 252 govern
ment-owned factores could provide
hundred? of thousands of jobs.
The government promptly set
out to interest businessmen in sales
or leases.
More plants will be dumped on
the-market. Reconversion Director
Snyder has been, needling the
Army and Navy for a month to
give up its idle factories.
The National. Housing Agency
thinks this country could build 400,
000 more houses a year if con
tractors could get at one big mar
ket: The family which can pay
only $0 to $40 a month for shel
ter.
In this bracket is the greatest
need for homes. But private build
ers won’t risk money on it. And
the government will take care only
of the under $20 class.
So NHA Director Blandford of
fers two proposals. Stripped down
to essentials they are:
For home rentals — That the
ernment make pledges to builders
in advance of construcition, that
it will insure the buyers’ mort
gage.

Federal Work Delaying
Police Alarm System

than 20 years ago, and the police
alarm and radio control system has
since outgrown the old unit.
City officials stressed that the

and services to be produced in the
next year if labor is to be fully

tures necessary to provide such
production. In the vent that indi
match the expenditures deemed
necessary, the legislation provides
for the government to step in with
encouragements to industry, and
public works.
Both Anderson and Patton said
full employment would: 1. Main
tian farm income at a high level
by stimulating demands for farm
products; 2. Offer needed non-farm
job. opportunities to rural youths;
3. Open the way to better facilities
for living in rural areas.

“The emergency bo^rd that heard
the dispute was convened in Wash

tions to make a further attempt
to mediate the differences with the
firemen’s organization but met with
no success.
“In signing the order to seize
the road, President Truman stated
that a stoppage in the railroad in
dustry at this time is unthinkable.’’
Johnson, in a notice to company
officials, said the seizure would
assure the “maintenance of an ef
fective system of transportation for
military and civilian freight and
passenger movement.’’
He said that Kirk was authorized
to request the Secretary of War
to furnish protection for persons

with the transportation system and
to furn: - h equipment, manpower

FIVE TONS DDT
TO BE USED HERE
Five tons of a 10 per cent DDT
mixture will be made available
here as soon as after Labor Day
as men and equipment are avail
able for dusting of homes and busi
ness establishments in an experi
ment directed particularly against
typhus-bearing rat fleas, Dr. A. H.
Elliott, county health officer, an
nounced yesterday.
The State Board of Health re
ports that 10,000 pounds of the
mixture—6ne-tenth DDT and nine
tenths inert pulverized rock or
talcum—will be available for New
Hanover county and more can be
had if that is not sufficient to
cover all the homes and business
houses in this area.
This work is being paid for out
of a federal appropriation for
typhus control and, while it is to
be used to kill fleas, it will also
be effective against roaches, water
bugs and silver fish.
In the near future pamphlets
will be distributed to the general
public describing the procedure
and harmlessness of the prepara
tion. It will not be necessary for
the . workmen engaged on the
project.to wear masks or gloves.
All dusting is to be done by the
personnel employed and directed
by the U. S. Public Health Service.
The material will not be available
for individual use.
The four counties selected for
the experimentations are Craven,
New Hanover, Wilson and Samp
son, chosen for the high incidence
of typhus during the past five
years. The program will include
DDT dusting for rat fleas in all
establishments where there are
evidences of rats, or where cases
of typhus fever Have been re
ported.
CIVITAN MEMBERS .
HEAR BEACH PLEA s
In describing the work of the r
Wilmington Chamber of Commerce r
to Civitans last night, Walter J. v
Cartier, secretary of the chamber, v
issued a strong plea for coopera- a
tion and work in develops g the :
resort features of this area. - i
Terming the local beaches a na- £
tural stopping point, midway
tween New York and Miami, he i
asked for an extension of the beach
season to six months, with hotel i
facilities open to guests as the first
step in the development of this lo- ,
cality as a tourist mecca. j
Describing the local strands as <
the finest on this part of the coast, i
he also pointed out that Green- (
field Lake when fully developed and '
with all its possibilities exploited (
would be the outstanding scenic
feature of this section of the Unit- ,
ed States and could make this city ;
famous throughout the nation. ,
To illustrate to members the work '
done by the average Chamber on !
an average day, Mrs. Cartier de
scribed a typical day as: ,
First, two youpg.men, one just ;
out of the service paid a visit to ;
discuss a business idea that they :
had wanted advice about. Soon,
Mr. Cartier predicted, these young
men would be heard from
Another call for advice concern
ing telephone priorities was made
by an industrial executive. Then
a couple wishing to purchase a
home and settle here.
A meeting on opening the coun
ty’s airport, discussion of an air
line already established here, calls
for travel information and pleas
for housing completed a full sched
ule.
The Chamber here, and others as
well, have been doing many jobs
not normally undertaken by them
during the war period and have
benefited by them, Mr. Cartier
said.
Wilmington already has a very
active industrial section which has
shown results and will produce
other concrete work in the future,
he said.
Wilmington, Mr. Cartier stated,
has sought the role of an industrial
city, with its fine port facilities,
but must develop better transporta
tion to the interior, he added.
A program of civic development
will require the expenditure of large
sums of money out of which tVf ve
might be little monetary return to
the individual and we must all
work for the continuing progress
of this section, he concluded.
Helen Stasios Baptized
At Greek Orthodox Church
Baptismal services for Miss
Helen Stasios, daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. Chris Stasios, were held
Thursday night at the Greek Or
thodox church at Second and
Orange streets.
The pastor, the Rev. E. B.
Papazisis, perfarmed the baptism,
assisted by Arthur Compos and
Stathis Bourlas, kinsmen of Miss
Stasios who came down from Nor
folk, Va., for the ceremony.
A reception party for Miss
Stasios *was held at the church
after the baptism.

lered to dump explosives over- la
joard and set sail for MacArthur- r{
Iesignated ports.
In the second step toward the sur- B
render, Allied naval fleets will .
move in and occupy enemy coastal j,
waters tomorrow, (Japanese time) \
while the Japanese will immobilize a
all vessels, in Tokyo bay and dis
arm the surrounding shores, bristl
ing with coastal guns and anti- S
aircraft batteries, y
Allied planes will drone overhead, w
mounting, aerial guard to see that b
Japan is keeping these demilitariz- -
ing commitments.
Hundreds of transport planes
were gathering on Okinawa, 325
miles south of Japan, for Tues
day’s great aerial migration which
will carry MacArthur to Japan at
the head of occupation forces which
Tokyo said would be 50,000 to 60,
000 strong in the initial waves.
The Japanese were to) " to have
members of the Imperial General
Staff ready to meet him at 6 a.m.
(5 p.m. Monday, Eastern War
Time) at Atsugi airdrome, 20 miles .
Southwest of Tokyo.
Simultaneously, Marines and sail
ors fully armed will-swarm' ashore
at Yokosuka, Japan’s higi-’y-secret |
and second greatest naval base j
20 miles South of Tokyo which the ■
rulers of the island empire never
permitted foreign military attaches
to see.
Japanese militarists at Atsugi
will get their orders from Mac
Arthur, who presumably will tc
teimine whether they have com
plied with all his occupation di
rectives.
Under his detailed time-table, Al
lied fleets will nose into the bays
of Tokyo and Sagami—the latter
just Southwest of Tokyo bay—Sun
day (Japanese time) guided by
Japanese pilots.
The following day the Japanese
must begin the evacuation of all
combat units from the occupation
zone, leaving only the local police
to maintain order.
While the conquering torces will
arrive prepared to meet any em
ergency, the Japanese themselves
were reported taking steps to pre
vent outbreaks of violence.
Home broadcasts by the Japan
ese told the people to remain calm,
keep out of the road of the evacu
ating Nipponese troops, “refrain
from ihdividually approaching oc
cupatiOn troops” and'to be courte
ous if aproached by Anlea forces.
This broadcast said Japanese po
lice would enforce order and once
more asked the people to avoid
acts of violence. ,
Sometime Friday, Japanese mili
tarists will be taken aboard the
battleship Missouri—whose 16-inch
guns only a month ago were bomb
aiding Japan—where they will sign
1 the articles of surrender that will
restore peace to the Pacific.
As Supreme Commander, Mac
Arthur will sign for the Allied
1 powers. Admiral Nimitz and Sir
Bruce Fraser, whose U. S. and
British Pacific fleets paralyzed
Japan's naval power, will sign for
their countries.
Gen. Hsu Yung-Chang, member
; of the Board of Military Opera
1 tions, will sign for China; Lt. Gen.
' Kuzma Nikolaevech Derevyanko
sign for Russia; Gen. Jacques Le
; Clerc, who had been designated
1 chief of French forces to fight
Japan,, will sign for France; Gen.
. Sir Thomas Blarney will sign for
Australia and Lt. Gen, L. H. Van
Oyen, commander of the Nether
lands East Indies Army, for the
Dutch.
It has yet to be announced who
will sign for Japan, and Canada
and New Zealand still have not
designated their representatives.
QUISLING QUAILS

spoke in a louder tone to the de
fendant: “Bergh asked you when
you first heard of the gas cham
bers.”
Quisling rose unsteadily and re
plied:
“Only afterwards.”
“Did you know about the depor
tation of Jews?” asked Solem.
“Did you try to prevent new
deportations?”
“I knew nothing about them.”
“You were not interested”
“I was- told they would go to [
Jewish settlements in Poland,”
Quisling replied. “I could do as
little to prevent Jewish deporta
tions-as I . could others—the 10,000
Norwegians who were taken to C er
many.” - v -
As the trial went into its fourth
day,- Prosecutor Anneus Schjoedt
called witnesses who testified that
Quisling:
