Taft Predicts Lead
Over Dewey at Convention Time Managers Estimate Senator Will Have 300 to 370 Votes By the Associated Press. Despite Thomas E. Dewey’s lead in primary-picked delegates, Sena tor Taft of Ohio said today he ex pected to enter the Republican Na tional Convention with more votes than the New7 York district attor ney. Senator Taft did not mention a specific figure in talking to report ers. but his managers have esti mated he would have between 300 and 370 of the 1.000 delegates when the convention opens. His strength will be largely in un instructed Southern groups. 52 from the forthcoming Ohio primary, and an expected block from some of Ohio's neighboring States. The selection of Pennsylvania Re publican and Democratic delegations with 72 votes did not formally af fect the political picture, for the two groups were not pledged. President’s Lead Raised. The Republicans have picked 411 of their 1.000 delegates, the Demo crats 328 of their 1.094. Six more Re publican delegates were to be se lected today at a Delaware conven tion. President Roosevelt's lead in dele gate strength, including those pledged and claimed for him as a result of unbinding primaries, was raised to 275 as a result of the Pennsylvania voting. The Chief Executive was unopposed in the Democratic preference balloting. Even though the 72 delegates elected w7ere not bound by that vote, they are regarded by New Dealers as the President's for the asking. Pennsylvania's Republican con vention votes may go to Gov. James on the first ballot, party leaders here said. No candidate had en tered the preferential primary. Of the Republican delegates chosen so far. Mr. Dewey has 24 pledged from Wisconsin. 64 claimed as a result of unbinding primaries in Illinois and Nebraska and his man agers also claim a large block of New York's 92. The New York delegates not going to Mr. Dewey will be for Frank Gannett. Roches ter publisher, or under control of Kenneth Simpson, National Com mitteeman. More Dewey Delegates Seen. In next month's primaries Mr. Dewey is expected to pick up 16 delegates in Maryland and 32 in New7 Jersey. He is unopposed in both States.

The Air Ministry communique wild: “Tire air ministry announces a further series of offensive opera tions was carried out by R. A. F. bomber aircraft last night against air bases available to the enemy for use in the invasion of Norway. “Westernland Airdrome on the Island of Sylt was heavily and suc cessfully attacked. Bombs were dropped on hangars and runways. | Several fires were started and a large explosion occurred. “North of Sylt a number of enemy patrol vessels were encountered. These opened heavy anti-aircraft fire on our planes. They were im mediately attacked and two were sunk. ^'Attacks were made also on enemy air bases at Aalborg. Kris tiansand. Oslo and Stavanger and offensive reconnaissance was carried out over Trondheim Fjord. “Detailed accounts have not yet been received, but preliminary re ports indicate that these operations were also highly successful.” Uneasy Over Next Move. With fighting between the allied forces and the Germans under way in at least three sectors of the Norwegian front—Narvik, Trond heim and Hamar—uneasiness grew in London over Germany's next strategic move. The possibility of operations in Sweden was discussed. The critical attitude of the Ger man press and radio toward Sweden and reports of troop movements on Germany's Baltic Coast aroused speculation. Swedish frontier reports indicated that the British and Norwegian troops were driving effectively to ward Hamar. 60 miles north of Oslo, and the War Office's mention of a "sharp engagement” north of Trondheim fitted in with frontier reports of close-quarter fighting at Steinkjer, a small town on the Trondheim Fjord. German destroyers sheltered in Trondheim Fjord were reported shelling the allied flanks, while Ger man warplanes attempted to bomb and machine-gun allied troop con centrations. Warfare on Britain’s shores took a further toll of shipping. The Brit ish steamer Lolworth sank off the southeast coast yesterday when it struck a mine. Another vessel was reported mined in the same area but a coastal lifeboat crew found no traces of wreckage. The latest sink ing followed the appearance of Ger man warplanes over the Thames and Humber estuaries Mondav night, apparently in an attempt to lay mines. Allies Seen Alert in Balkans. Diplomatic observers trving to read between the lines of the allied War Council’s communique saw in dications that allied strategists also were alert regarding the tense situ ation in the Balkans. Some believed that the cautiously worded state ment contained a warning to Italy to refrain from joining Germany in the war. ADVERTISEMENT.

Chamberlain Shifts Censorship Bureau To Information Unit Deportment of Defense To Continue Issuing Own News By the Associated Press. LONDON, April 24.—Prime Min ister Chamberlain announced in the House of Commons today that the Ministry of Information would re- 1 sume the functions performed by the Press and Censorship Bureau. Sir Walter Monckton, former chief censor and head of Press and Cen sorship Bureau, has been appointed deputy director general of the Min istry of Information, Mr. Chamber lain announced. Subject to advice from the Minis try of Information, he said, the de fense departments are responsible for censorship decisions in all mat ters ‘ where it was necessary to pre vent information from reaching the enemy.” Monckton also will be an under secretary of state for foreign affairs The number of senior officers at tached to the ministry is being in creased to strengthen liaison be tween the fighting services and the Ministry of Information. Mr. Cham berlain said. ne announced mat Monckton would have charge of publicity in neutral countries and of enemy propaganda. Existing arrangements by which1 the press has access to all depart ments “will remain undisturbed,” Mr. Chamberlain said. Each department will remain re sponsible for the issue of its own news, either through the Ministry of Information or its own organi zation. The changes named by the Prime Minister will take effect immediately. Shifting the Censorship Bureau back to the Information Ministry and appointment of additional army, navy and air officers to the infor mation department was decided upon. British authorities said, to increase the flow of material avail able to the press and to give news paper correspondents quicker access to service ministries through the Ministry of Information. The Prime Minister made no war statement. Arthur Greenwood, deputy leader of the Labor opposition, today told the National Defense Public Interest Committee that “even the United States is now piling up expenditure on armaments not because she is directly threatened, but because no body knows how far the war will' extend.” “Before this struggle is over many neutrals will be with us in the fight,”! Mr. Greenwood said. The British Empire now has “two! million men under arms exclusive of the Royal Navy and marines, mer cantile marine and Royal Air Force,” the government announced. “Armies in France and in the | Middle East are steadily being augmented.” said the statement, adding that besides men under arms nowT there are such reservoirs of manpower as the police, personhel of the civil defense services, civil transport personnel and organiza tions of workers in war industry and other public services.

Rena, but only after the bloodiest fighting. Battle East of Rena. A bitter battle was said to have been waged 15 miles east of Rena, where the Nazis attacked twice without success before finally gain ing their objective—possession of a bridge over Lake Osa. On the first two attempts, the Germans were met by a withering fire from Norwegian machine guns, Swedish dispatches said. These as saults, however, enabled them to spot the location of the machine gun nests, which they finally silenced on the third try. Both the Norwegians and the Ger mans were reported to be making extensive use of ski troops in the fighting around Rena. The Stock holm newspaper Tidningen said that one such German detachment of 400 men. executing a swift flanking movement, had attacked the Nor wegians from the rear, only to be virtually annihilated by machine gun fire. British Forces Stalled. British forces previously reported closing in from the north and south on the German-held port of Trond heim. key to Central Norway, ap parently were stalled, for the time being at least, after a series of ad vance guard skirmishes. Tidningen said that British ad- ’ vance parties had been compelled to retire from Steinkjer, 50 miles north of Trondheim and approximately j the same distance south of their de barkation point at Namsos. Other British forces were reported still holding positions at Storen. 25 miles below Trondheim. (Official British sources said last night that a “sharp encounter’’ had been fought north of Trond heim and that “operations are proceeding in co-operation with Norwegian forces ”) Nazis Hammer at Valleys. A communique issued last night by Norwegian military headquarters \ said that the German attempts to force an entrance to the Gudbrands dal and Osterdal Valleys were sup ported by artillery, tanks and air craft. The Norwegians insisted that they held command of the railway from Andalsnes to Lillehammer. a dis tance of some 135 miles, and said their defenses at the latter place had been strengthened by mountain artillery. “The Norwegians are being equipped with arms by the allied powers.” the communique said. South of Lillehammer the Ger mans were reported in control of the area surrounding Lake Mjosen. in cluding the towns of Hamar and Gjovik. approximately 60 miles from Oslo, and Raufoss. important as the site of an ammunition factory. West of Lake Mjosen. the Nor wegian communique said, the Ger mans w'ere beaten back with the loss of 100 prisoners in an attempt to advance up the Valdres River Val ley. Narvik Nazis Holding Out. The German garrison at Narvik, on Norway's northwestern coast, was reported still holding out, although surrounded on land and sea. German versions of the situation there said their position was im pregnable, that they had mined the harbor and quays and that attack from sea was out of the question. A first-hand account of the Ger man occupation of the town was given by Patrick P. King, an Ameri can sailor, who succeeded in making his way from the port to the Swedish border. In’ an interview published in a Swedish newspaper, King was quoted as saying that the Germans had arrested the British consul and his assistant when they first landed and that the former had been shot when he offered resistance. Most of the women and children have been removed from the town. King said, adding that both the Germans and the British apparently had attempted to avoid injury to civilians in the struggle for posses sion. King arrived in Narvik as the member of the crew of a Finnish fishing vessel. He had intended to proceed to Finland to volunteer for j service against the Russians, but i was taken sick and 1vas discharged from a hospital only two days be fore the Germans arrived. atn or in; ither luiuue cade cur by the Berliti Mettled—a Tillable only at lb* BERLITZ SCHOOL OF LANGUAGES.

Tax Exemption Case Goes Today To Supreme Court ! - Seal Seeks Petition For Review in Ruling On Sweeney Victory A petition for a review of the decision by the Court of Appeals in the Sweeney case, which munic ipal officials fear may lead to ex emption of thousands of Federal workers from the District income taxes, was to be filed today with the Supreme Court by Corporation Counsel Elwood H. Seal. While the case won by James J. Sweeney in the appellate court con cerned the District's former in tangible personal property tax, the Commissioners promptly authorized Mr. Seal to apply to the high court because of the broad terms used in deciding that Mr. Sweeney was not domiciled here although he had worked here for 20 years. Weeks of Preparation. Preparation of the facts and argu ments in the case has been under way in recent weeks and the petition for a writ of certiorari was expected to be printed by noon today. Meanwhile, Tax Assessor Edward A Dent predicted the total anticipat ed revenue would go above $3,000,000 Last summer other officials had estimated the revenue should be $3,200,000. Personal Returns Above Estimate. Mr. Dent reported last night that returns so far counted revealed tax payments totaling $2,808,540. Of this sum $1,480,252 was from the personal income levy, for which but $1,000,000 had been estimated, and $1,328,288 from corporations, whereas it had been estimated to produce $2,200,000. It is believed all corporation returns have been received except for about 400 which file on a fiscal year basis. There are still some 8.000 personal returns yet to be tabulated. However. District officials say they have no way of estimating how much of the personal tax payments may have to be refunded, after they are reviewed by the District Board of Tax Appeals and possibly by the courts. Taxpayers have two years in which to claim refunds. The first such case, testing the District domicile feature of the income tax, has been taken under advisement by the Tax Appeals Board. It was brought by Eugene S. Henning. Navy Department junior electrical en gineer, who resides at 930 Randolph street N.W.

Would Minimize “Hump.” The Army promotion bill which the House approved yesterday is designed to minimize the so-called "hump" in the advancement, system caused by the presence of about , 4.200 officers who entered the service in the World War. Second lieutenants would become first lieutenants after three years’ service. Thereafter, the automatic promotion scale on total years of service as commissioned officers would be: 10 years, captain; 17 years, major; 23 years, lieutenant colonel; j 28 years, colonel. A maximum of 705 colonels would be fixed. nonunions aoove neuienani now are limited to the filling of vacan cies. The new bill would increase the number of majors, lieutenant colonels and colonels by 1.350, but proponents said that substantial savings eventually would result. With the exception of general of ficers and 5 per cent of the colonels, all officers would be retiired at 60 years of age instead of at 64, the present limit. Today the War Department urged Congress to authorize an annual in crease of $23,144,683 in the pay of the Army’s 227.000 enlisted men to bring them up to the level of Navy men. Capt. Ira T. Swift of the Army general staff told a Senate Militarv Subcommittee that the average pay of a Navy enlisted man was $877 a year, while that of an Army man was $569. •N FAMOUS SUPER-LINERS FROM N.Y.

Kaifeng Recaptured In Fierce Fighting, Chinese Declare Japanese Reported Driven Out of Honan Capital By the Auoclated Preu. CHUNGKING, April 24.—The Chinese Central News Agency re ported today that Kaifeng, Honan Province, had been wrested from the Japanese—the first provincial capi tal to revert to Chinese hands since the Chinese-Japanese war began July 7, 1937. Chinese military circles here, how ever, said they had no confirmation of this report. The agency operates under the central Chinese govern ment at Chungking. Chinese military reports earlier had told of an assault on Kaifeng in which the Chinese attackers smashed through the north and south gates, wiped out a Japanese detachment defending one gate and fired Japanese barracks and supply depots. These earlier advices, however, did not say specifically that Kaifeng had changed hands. Central News declared the Chinese were in full occupation of the citv yesterday. Chinese forces first cut the Lung hai railway which runs through Kai feng—apparently to shut off rein forcements for the Kaifeng Japanese garrison—and then stormed the city from four directions according to Central News. The agency said the Chinese had also recaptured Hwaiyang, 80 miles south of Kaifeng. Chinese Claim Kiangsi Counter-Thrusts Repulsed HONGKONG. April 24 OP).—Prom Kiangsi province, one of China's far-flung battlegrounds, came Chi nese advices today that three Jap anese columns were countering in a "desperate attempt to check the steady Chinese advance toward Nanchang ” the provincial capital and one of China’s key cities. Each Kiangsi counter-thrust, however, was said to have been re pulsed. The Chinese reported they had cut the Nanchang-Kiukiang Railway, north of the capital, at several points. Chinese batteries, firing across the Yellow River boundary of South western Shansi province, were said to have shelled Japanese-occupied towns along the Shansi shore, espe cially Maotsing. while 15.000 Jap anese soldiers were engaged in Southeastern Shansi near Haoping. Tlie Chinese Central News Agency said a Japanese supply train was blown up a few days ago by a Chi nese mine planted under the Peip ing-Suiyuan Railway. Many Jap anese casualties and damage of sup plies resulted, according to the agency. Japanese Deny Loss Of Kaifeng to Chinese PEIPING, April 24 opt.—'The Japanese Army headquarters here today admitted that Chinese units had vigorously attacked "Kaifeng Monday night, but denied reports that the Chinese had recaptured the Honan provincial capital, which has Wen in Japanese hartds for nearly two years. The Japanese said that 2.000 Chinese fought their way into the city under a intensive trench mortar barrage and engaged the Japanese in a 10-hour street battle which re sulted in the Chinese being driven out with the loss of 150 men. The Japanese said their losses were small. Father of 11 Convicted Of Imprisoning Wife By the Associated Press. TUSCUMBIA. Ala., April 24—L. A.

STOCKHOLM, April 24 — Three Norwegian bus drivers, pressed into service to transport German troops, were reported today to have driven their vehicles headlong over a cliff, killing themselves and most of their 180 Nazi passengers. The story was told by Reidar Haanes, sports writer for a Nor wegian newspaper, on his ar rival here. Un-American _ (Continued From First Page.) munistic A. C. A. members who had gone into the Government serv ice. Howe said that Walter Adams had gone into a Government airways station in Kentucky and Thomas C. Ault, whom he called "a well known Communist,” had gone into the Federal airway service at Camden, N. J„ and later Baltimore. The wieness said that Ault had been arrested at one time in Ecua dor for distributing subversive lit erature. He testified that Ben Rosset. whom he called a Communist, was now working on a Government owned ship, the Mormack Gull. Rosset, he said, had been arrested at Lisbon, Portugal, for distributing Communist literature. The A. C. A. Communist unit, he , continued, had succeeded in placing 5 party operators on the Manhattan and Washington, big passenger ves sels of the United Slates Lines. A Communist had been an operator for a time on the President Roose velt, he continued, but was not now. Howe called out a long list of A. C. A. local officials who he said were Communists. Names and identifi cations as he gave them included: Paul Rothman. Baltimore, secretary of Local 4: T. J. Vanermen. Seattle, Local 6: Leonard Anderson. Cleve land, secretary of Local 20. The witness said that Communists j controlled A. C. A. ‘ 99 per cent.” ; He also testified that officials of Postal Telegraph frequently used another telegraph servcie because of fear that Communists in their own organization would delay mes sages or disclose their contents. Tells of “Slow-Down Strike.” Howe asserted that Mackay radio operators, who he said were the best in the world, conducted a “slow down strike' several weeks ago in order to help gain demands the A. C. A. made upon the company Operators capable of sending and teceiving 40 or 45 words a minute he said, complained about the speed of transmission when the speed was about 10 words a minute, or said “We can't hear you.” In some in stances two hours were required to tiansmit a message that ordinarily would require only two minutes, he added. Radio service companies usually give ship radio operators a “frank” which they use to send their own messages. Howe said. Through fake call letters these operators may communicate, for example, with Moscow, he continued. The Federal Communications Commission requires copies of all f messages to be filed, but Howe said that the requirement was ignored in many instances. Many coastal stations are so busy that they jot dowi notes In their "logs 'iilfijrevtrs’ 15 minutes. Representative Dempsey. Demo crat. of New Mexico, brought out that the F. C.

Special Spring-Summer Kales could itop shipments to the allies if the Communist party in Russia decreed such a course. On the East Coast, Howe replied, the Communists could stop such shipments on American vessels but not on foreign flagships. On the West Coast, he continued, they could do it “almost 100 per cent” because “Harry Bridges controls the longshoremen as well.” At that point Representative Dempsey explained that the Neu trality Act already forebade ship ment of munitions or any other cargo to belligerents in American vessels. Howe said there were 150 or more "good Communist” operating radios on American ships. In response to a question by Mr. Dies, he said there was no reason why they couldn't, in war-time, reveal positions of con voys and battleships. No Moscow Messages. He expressed belief that Earl Browder, Communist party leader in this country, received instructions from Moscow through Communist operators on American ships. Mr. Dies said there were no ca blegrams of record from Moscow to the Daily Worker, Communist pub lication. instructing it what line to take regarding the Russo-German pact. Howe said it would have been easy for Moscow to have sent word through an operator on a ship a short distance out of an American port. Asked by Mr. Dempsey how that, could be done without the message being intercepted. Howe said a false call—possibly Chinese—and a secret code could be used. Earlier Chairman Dies called on the C. I. O. today to "clean house” by expelling any Communist mem bers. Representative Dies declared that John L.
