Court Jurisdiction in Claims Against U. S. Asks Other Changes In Routine Functions Of Government President Roosevelt proposed to Congress today that authorization be granted to the executive and judicial departments for handling two routine functions of Govern ment now requiring material time and expense of the legislative branch. These functions, which Mr. Roose velt described as of lesser import ance at a time of war, were the handling of private cliams and au thorizing construction of bridges over navigable waters. For the former, Mr. Roosevelt proposed that the departments and independent agencies be empowered to adjust and determine claims up to $1,000, with review by the Attor ney General for awards over $500. For claims up to $7,500, he suggested that jurisdiction be given to United States District Courts with the right of appeal to the Court of Claims. Less Than 20 Per Cent Passed. . Regarding the bridge construction problem, the President suggested that responsibility for authorizing construction and maintenance of such structures be vested in the Secretary of War. The President pointed out that more than 2.000 private claim bills are introduced in each Congress, and that less than 20 per cent of 6,300 submitted during the last three Congresses were enacted. Of all legislation vetoed during this period, the President added, fully one-third * fell in this classification of private claims. “It is estimated.” he said, “that the expenses of the executive and legis lative branches in considering the claim bills of each Congress, • • * are in the neighborhood of $125,000; that the printing cost alone of the claim bills which fail to become law are almost $19,000 per Congress: and that it coats almost $200 to pass a single bill. When it is considered that some claim bills are enacted In amounts much less than $200 the wisdom of our present procedure is questionable.” Congressional approval of his pro posal on the claim procedure “would be of real assistance to the Congress and to the President, at a time when matters of grave national Impor tance demand an ever Increasing share of our attention," Mr. Roose velt said. Stm Could Act. The President pointed out that Congress could still retain the right to grant additional relief if It should be felt that claimants are not re ceiving justice in full. With regard to expediting the bridge construction procedure, the President recalled there had been more than 100 public enactments of this type during the Twenty-sixth Congress. Each of these, he added, cost money and consumed time of the legislators, the War Department and the White House. Concluding his recommendations, Mr. Roosevelt said: “These two matters may seem of little importance in these difficult days, but I am certain that the Congress will sympathize with the efforts I am making to save motion In the conduct of the Government.” Mayors (Continued From First Page.) rot been challenged. Agencies and dealers have respected the orders. "We have been able to say to dealers that things were getting too inflationary and a halt must be called. The proposed legislation would prevent this, although we now are at war and must spend billions. My office is stopped from interfer ing with ordinary business practices. "The cost increase from now on will be in the cost of living. Wages must rise to meet the increased cost of living, and manufacturers can demand increased prices for their goods to offset the added cost of wages. Then farm commodities will seek a parity. Pricas will be auto matically tilted. "We will be in a mounting spiral automatically fixed by law. This bill is an automatic esculator.” Mr. Henderson said that under the pending legislation nothing can be done about price fixing until sugar goes up a cent a pound, until milk goes up 40 per cent, beef, 20 per cent, or lamb meat, 28 per cent. etc. La Guardia Is Re-elected. "We cannot spend 47 billion dol lars and let the cost of living take care of itself. It will be a case of national suicide if and when infla tion comes.” At the closing meeting the mayors re-elected their officers—Mayor La Guardia as president; Mayor Ed ward J. Kelly of Chicago, vice presi dent,; Mayor Howard W. Jackson of Baltimore, treasurer, and Paul V. Betters, executive director. The Nation's labor force engage^ in war production must' be tripled by the end of this year, Sidney Hillman, associate- director gen eral of the Office of Production Management, declared earlier tor day before the mayors. Mr. Hillman said 5.000.000 persons were employed in war industry at the end of 1941 and must be joined this year by 10.000.000 more. He in dicated the 15,000,000 total would triple the planned strength of the expanding Army, commenting; | CIVILIAN DEFENSE LEADERS TESTIFY ON MORALE —Mrs. Roosevelt, assistant director of civilian defense, engaged Representative Tolan of California (left) in earnest conversation today just prior to taking the stand before Mr. Tolan’s special House committee studying the problems of migratory workers and civilian defense under the defense production program. Listening in at right is Dean James M. Land s, new civilian defense executive, who also testified. Mrs. Roose velt told the committee there ire many “unmet needs in the District’’ f<ft defense purposes. : She criticized housing facilities in the lower price level. (Earlier story on page A-l.)— A. P. Photo. Will Run Down Abuses. "To mobilize a labor force three times the projected size of our new Army isn't going to be easy." The associate head of O. P. M. explained that worker training pro grams would be enlarged to help meet the need and promised he would "run down" each case of labor union abuse in membership fees re ported to his office. The pledge was made in reply to a question from the floor as to what would be done "about the man who Is eager and able to work but who cannot raise $50 or $75 to join a union." Mr. Hillman declared such ex orbitant fees were placed in effect by scattered unions against the policy of their own national leaders. The conference adopted a series of resolutions pledging fullest co operation of city heads in the war program. Victory Their First Task. The winning of the war will be **our first task," the mayors de clared. They pledged themselves to urge the citizens of the municipal^ ties they head to work longer hours and make cheerful sacrifices in the Interest of national security.. The layers themselves pledged their 4 D. C. Men Nomed Brigadiers In Big War Promotion List By the Associated Press. A promotion list giving the Army 15 new brigadier generals, and ad vancing five brigadiers to the rank of major general, was sent by Presi dent Roosevelt today to the Senate for confirmation. At the same time the President nominated 10 high-ranking officers of the Navy and Marine Corps for. temporary or permanent promotion. Four Washingtonians, including Col. Robert S. Olds, head of the Air Corps Ferrying? Command, were nominated for promotion to briga dier general in the Army. The others from here were Cols. Geoffrey Keyes, Paul W, Newgarden and William H. Hale. Brig. Gen. Clarence L. Tinker of Pawhuska, Okla., named to com mand the Army air forces in Hawaii in the command shakeup which fol lowed the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, was one of the five advanced to major general. Investigator Advanced. Also promoted was Brig. Gen. Jo seph T. McNamey of Emporium, Pa., the only active officer on the special commission appointed by the Presi dent to investigate the Pearl Harbor attack and fix responsibility for American unreadiness. The other Army member and the naval officers on the commission were recalled from retirement to participate in the probe. Brig. Gens. Fred C. Wallace, who was born at McMinnville, Tenn., and Fred L. Walker, a native of Fairfield County, Ohio, were promoted to major general. Gen. Wallace, a field artillery of ficer who received the Distinguished j Service Medal for World War serv- j ices, commands the 4th Division at I Fort1 Benning. Ga Gen. Walker, an infantryman, J commands the 2d Division at Fort j Sam Houston, Tex. A former com- j mander of the 15th Infantry, he was more recently on the staff of the 2d Army at Memphis. Tenn., and at j one time an instructor at the Army War College. Called From Retirement. Brig. Gen. Lorenzo D. Gasser of Tiffin, Ohio, also moved up to major general, was retired in 1940 after a brief tour as acting deputy chief of staff, but returned to active duty last year as War Department repre sentative with the Office of Civilian Defense. best efforts, time and lives for the re establishment of a "just and endur ing peace.” In the next most important res olution the conference called for the rescue of the small businessman, who, it was said, is threatened with bankruptcy by the diversion of ma terials to mass war production. The resolution stated that the Govern ment needs small business as badly as small business needs the Govern ment if the country is to utilize all its facilities for producing war weapons. The mayors, however, thanked President Roosevelt for placing pro duction authority in the hands of Donald M. Nelson. This was done in an amendment offered by Mayor La Guardia. Help Small Business. It was pointed out that the new setup should help the small busi nessman to obtain his share of defense orders. In the past, it was charged, executives of the smaller plant got the "run-around” in Washington when they came here to find some one in authority before whom to lay their production prob lems. In other resolutions the Mayors: Reiterated their opposition to pro posals for imposition of Federal taxes on municipal securities. Urged the establishment of mili tary guard units to protect "sensi | tive centers” in their communities. -- Temporary advancement to the rank of major general was recom mended for Brig. Gen. Ross E. Rowell, 57, of Coronado, Calif., Ma rine Corps officer whose last pub lished assignment was as Assistant Naval Attache at London. Permanent promotion as paymas ter of the Marine Corpp. effective February 1, for four years, was recommended for Col. Raymond R. j Wright, 50, with the rank of briga- j dier general.

Jan. 14.—The War Ministry disclosed today that Colombian troops had been moved into all strategic positions on the Colombian Pacific and Caribbean coasts and were guarding the south ern gateway to the Panama Canal. Air Corps Eases Requirements To Admit Recruits 18 to 26 B.v the Associated Press. NEW YORK, Jan, 14 —Relaxation of requirements of volunteers for the Army Air Corps Cadets, enabling them to enlist between the ages of 18 and 26, and a revision in require ments for those seeking duty with parachute units, was announced to day by Col. George H. Baird, recruit ing and induction officer for the 2d Corps Area. Previously, Army Air Corps re cruits had to be at least 20. The Air Corps also dropped its require ment of two years of college, or its equivalent, and for a high school diploma, now ruling only that the applicant pass a general intelligence test in addition to the physical test. Col. Baird said that the revised requirements did not affect volun teers for ground crew work, who would continue to enlist as privates in the regular Apiy Air Corps, or ;:>i]ots not candidates for the Air Corps cadets. Col. Baird said that Air Corps Cadet members could become commis sioned officers at 19. where pre viously the Army required a com missioned officer to be at least 21. : He said that men applying for j service with the Army could enlist directly for duty with parachute units. The previous ruling stipu lated that parachute troops be drawn only from men in the Army. “The men chosen must be alert, active and supple, with firm muscles and sound limbs and be capable of developing into aggressive, individ ual fighters with great endurance,” he said. Parachutist volunteers must be between the ages of 20 and 30. in clusive. and weigh not more than 185. They will be paid a bonus of 550 a month in addition to the reg ular Army pay. Decentralization (Continued From First Page.) directed to move under the provi sions of said order, and that exe cution of any such order be delayed until the Congress shall have made inquiry into the reasons therefor pursuant to the foregoing resolu tion.” “As Rapidly as Possible.” The moving of the Patent Office will be completed ‘ as rapidly as pos sible,” Mr. Coe said in his announce ment setting the January 31 date. Under the present program, the Patent Office will be divided between Washington and Richmond. Ap proximately 1.2C0 employes will be transferred to the Virginia capital. The headquarters of'the office, the search rooms, most of the files and records and many divisions will re main in Washington. The decision to move on January 31 followed word from the engineers that the new building in Richmond would be ready for occupancy on that date. The decentralization service of the Procurement Division. Mr. Coe said, would shortly make known what al lowances would be given to per sonnel transferred to cover their moving and traveling expenses. Norris Hits Procedure. Senator Norris, independent, of Nebraska contended during the Senate debate that, since the McCarran proposal is only a Senate resolution, not requiring House action or the signature of the President, It would have no binding effect. If the decentraliza tion issue is one Congress should consider, it should be presented in the form of legislation, the Nebrask an argued. Minority Leader McNary said he favored decentralizing the Govern ment. but at the same time agreed that the Senate should request the budget director to give the District Committee the data he failed to sub mit last week. Accordingly, he asked Senator Mc Carran to eliminate from his resolu tion the "whereases ‘ that place the Senate on record against moving the bureaus and confine it to a ‘‘request” for information instead of a direc tion to submit information. Senator McCarran replied, how ever, that the committee already had tried requesting the information without results. Barkley Opposes Resolution. Senator McCarran also charged during the debate that "there are those in this country who want to tear down this Government and set up a super-government.” Decen tralizing bureaus and departments is oneof the steps that would bring that about, he asserted. Majority Leader Barkley an nounced his opposition to passage of the resolution as soon as debate on it began. He questioned the juris diction of the District Committee to deal with the issue. When Senator McCarran asked what committee would have juris diction, the majority leader said it may be a matter for several com mittees, since the laws creating Various Government bureaus came out of different committees. Chairman Maloney of the Sen ate Public Buildings and Grounds Committee came to the support of Senator McCarran. He suggested that if the Government is going to rent private property in other cities to house these agencies, it would be wiser to take over private buildings in Washington rather than scatter the Government. Call* Transfer Expensive. Senator Maloney mentioned the Smithsonian Institution and com mercial buildings “occupied largely by lobbyists” as illustrations of how more space could be obtained here during the emergency. Senator Tydings, Democrat, of Maryland, who assisted Senator Me- j Carran in holding hearings on the removal program, told the Senate it would be “a grievous error to let the decentralization order be carried out without further study.” He cited •figures developed by the committee to show it would cost approximately is much to move 1,400,000 square feet of Government activity elsewhere and house the employes as it would cost to provide the added temporary space here. Entering the debate for the second time, Senator Barkley said: "It is unfortunate that so soon after get ting into this war we are questioning the authority, if not the good faith, of the President. I realize it is in convenient for Government em ployes to move but it also is incon venient for men to be drafted into the Army.” Spy Trial Delayed NEW YORK. Jan. 14 (IP).—The trial of Kurt Praderick Ludwig, de scribed by Federal agents as a mas ter spy, and six other persons charged with conspiracy to violate the espionage law was postponed today until February 2 at the re quest of United States Attorney Mathias F. Correa. Fair Grounds to Hold Scratches Till 1 P.M., Keep Jockeys Secret | Move Is Seen Aimed at Handbook Men; Season Curtailment Denied i' B7 the Aaeocieited Press. NEW ORLEANS. Jan. 14.—The Fair Grounds Racing Association to day announced that hereafter scratches would not be released at the track until 1 pm., daily, and names of jockeys for the day's races and some other information will not be made public in advance. Fair Grounds officials did not give the reason for the move, but it-was said in racing circles that this was another skirmish in the fight with local bookmakers whose downtown activity is credited with depriving the Fair Grounds of substantial revenues. The association brought racing back here on Christmas Day, after a year layoff, under a pari-mutuel system of wagering. Revenues have been disappointing, but officials deny that the Fair Grounds may close before the jnd of the season, set for February 17. John F. Clarice, Jr., chairman of the Louisiana State Racing Com mission, in a public statement said: "Despite the fact that hand booking and other forms of wager vig on horse races outside the in cfosure of a licensed race track is an open violation of Act 127 of 1920 and Act 276 of 1940, no attempt has been made to alleviate the situation.” Colpoys, Suit Defendant, Wins Directed Verdict Justice David A. Pine today di rected a verdict in favor of United States Marshal John B. Colpoys in District Court in the $10,000 damage suit filed against Mr. Colpoys by John H. Rowe, 3408‘2 Georgia ave nue N. W. Mr. Fftwe claimed two deputy marshals entered his place of busi ness and moved a liquor license from the wall in a move to satisfy a $140 judgment against him in Municipal Court. The directed verdict also covered the Franc Jewelry Co.. Inc., 627 Seventh street N.W.. holder of the Municipal Court judgment and co defendant in the suit. Justice Pine said that while the levy on the liquor license was im proper, the plaintiff failed to show he had sustained damages. Cards for Enemy Aliens Ordered by Roosevelt President Roosevelt today ordered that all enemy aliens in the United States apply for certificates of identification. Such certificates must be carried by the aliens at all times. The President's orders were con tained in a proclamation supple mental to rules of conduct for en emy aliens promulgated in Decem ber. It was specified that the Attorney 1 General is to make arrangements for establishing identification and issuing the required certificates. He also will set the date of registration. [ Autos iContinued From First Page.) would be a certain “exempt" group of purchasers who will not have to secure certificates but who will 1 be required to supply information as to the proposed use of the vehicle. These categories include automobile dealers buying for resale, the'Army and Navy, the R. F. C., the Panama Canal, the Coast and Geodetic Sur vey, the Coast Guard, the C. A. A., the National Advisory Commission for Aeronautics and the Office of Scientific Research and Develop ment. Under the rationing program. Mr. Henderson told the House commit tee. it will be necessary to decide "what is the most equitable distribu tion for civilian supply.” Stoppage Not Foreseen. Until the developments in the Pa cific, Mr. Henderson said at the outset of the hearing, the possibility of an absolute stoppage of automo bile production had never been con templated. He agreed with Repre- \ sentatice Halleck, Republican, of In- 1 diana that the automobile industry might devote sufficient facilities to defense needs and still turn out 20 i per cent of the ordinary annual ’ production, “if they could get the vital materials necessary.” But he held out no hope for this. Many of the dealers who have testified at the hearing, which started yesterday, have expressed the hope that some limited produc tion mijbt be undertaken to keep them in business. On the subject of used cars, Mr. Henderson told the committee that i “we want to go as far as we can to keep this necessary service going,” | and to see “that as many dealers 1 as possible remain in that business.” At the same time, he emphasized that “we must maintain a high ra tio of repair work.” Kelly Is Critical. Representative Kelly, Democrat, of Illinois, was critical of the fact. that the Government put a clamp on the retail automobile business without any advance notice to the dealers, but the witness insisted that “I’ll defend what we did in ‘freezing' at any time.'' It was at this juncture that Mr. Henderson told of the plans to per mit dealers to complete the sales negotiated before the first of the year, but it was brought out that adequate proof of the contract will have to be furnished in each in stftncc. The sales will be subject to the prospective price ceiling. Mr. Henderson said that under the tire rationing program, particular attention was being given to the re placement needs of defense workers, delivery trucks and clergymen. Rep resentative Bulwinkle, Democrat, of North Carolina said he had heard of a case where tires were denied milk distributors and given to liquor dealers. Mr. Henderson said he didn't believe that, but agreed that “some neighbor on a board” might have made an “unfortunate” allot ment.

Racing News Entries and Selections for Tomorrow * Rossvan's Comment Selections for a Fast Track at Hialeah Park BEST BET—HIGH ONE. FIRST RACE —THROUGH TRAIN, TIME WAS, WAR ARROW. THROUGH TRAIN has been working in approved style and he may be able to master these Ju veniles first rattle out of the box. TIME WAS is highly regarded by his connections and he could be the one to force the issue. WAR ARROW has the rail p06t position and this may aid him in the run ning. SECOND RACE—TWO WAYS, ROSY DOLLAR, MYSTIQUE. TWO WAYS disappointed in her lone Tropical test, but on her New England form and on her recent workouts she has a real chance to defeat this cheap oppo sition. ROSY DOLLAR has been second in her last two Florida outings and she should be close up all the way. MYSTIQUE may be closer. THIRD RACE—LA JOCONDE. BALLINDERRY, SHADOWS PASS. LA JOCONDE just failed to click in her last at the Gables strip and just slight improve ment would appear necessary for her to trim this good sprint field. BALLINDERRY has good form to recommend her with these. SHADOWS PASS won four straight races before losing his last at Tropical. FOURTH RACE—FORSWEAR, BIG MEAL. OFF KEY. FORSWEAR displayed winning form around New York and the Ally has worked cleverly since arriving in Florida. She may be able to lick this sort. BIG MEAL appeared to be nearing peak form at Pimlico and the Bradley color bearer may be hard to dispose of. OFF KEY won at Tropical by eight lengths. FIFTH RACE—HIGH ONE, ARMY SONG, MINEE-MO. HIGH ONE has flashed three excellent Florida efforts and he appears to have a bit of an edge over the sort he hooks up with here. Let's make him the best bet of the day. ARMY SONG just missed in his last and he scored previously at the Bird Road oval MINEE-MO could come to life. SIXTH RACE—RIDING LIGHT, VOLITANT, GET OFF. RIDING LIGHT just failed to register In his first at Florida and his previous form stamps him as better than ordinary. He will be tough to lick. VOLITANT has a clever Tropical Park victory to his credit anti he could be in the thick of it. GET OFF has keen speed and he is a sure threat. SEVENTH RACE—LADY IN FINITE, JL'ST TOURIST, NILON. LADY INFINITE has had two conditioners at the other strip and she now should be able to trim the caliber of claimers she meets here JUST TOURIST won her last in a common gal lop and she has to be given stout consideration off that showing. NILON copped his last at the other oval. EIGHTH RACE — SUERTERO. INCONCEIVABLE, LOVELY DAWN. SUERTERO won his recent test by a half-dozen lengths and if he will show that same brand of speed tomorrow the issue may not be long in doubt. INCONCEIV ABLE is nearing brackets and he mav have a lot to say about this result. LOVELY DAWN has been threatening and she is not out of it. Racing Results. Hialeah Park By the Associated Press.

Makers' Price Ceiling Set On 10c Type Cigarettes By the Associated Press. The Office of Price Administra tion yesterday established a maxi mum manufacturers’ price of $5.15 a thousand on regular size 10-cent cig arettes. but asserted the ceiling would not affect retail prices now I paid by consumers. Prices of three brands of the so ! called economy cigarettes—Avalons, Dominos and Twenty Grands—were increased from $5.05 to $5.15 in late October and early November, O. P. A. explained, but prices of three other brands—Marvels, Paul Jones and Sensations—had remained $5.05. The increase to $5.15 “appears JiAtlfied by increasing costs of labor and raw materials,” O. P. A. de clared. and the new maximum was established to allow all of the com panies manufacturing this type of cigarette to sell at the same price. Fair Grounds By the Associated Press.
