Press Right to Radio
Ownership Defended
By Illinois U. Dean
F. C. C. Told That Papers
'Have Same Privileges
As Other Citizens'
By the Auoctited Press.
Dr. Frederick S. Siebert, director
of the University of Illinois School
of Journalism, told the Federal
Communications Commission today
that newspapers “should have the
same privileges as other citizens” in
the ownership of radio stations.
Testifying in the commission’s In
vestigation of newspaper-radio re
lationship, Dr. Siebert said news
papers “deserved to be considered’’
because of their long training in the
coverage of news and opinion.
"My impression is that the mon
oply that might be created is not
as dangerous as the entering wedge
of discriminations against news
papers as newspapers,” he said.
The commission is conducting its
investigation with a view to deter
mining its future policy for dealings
with applications by newspaper in
terests for broadcast stations. Dr.
Siebert appeared as a witness for
the newspaper-radio committee, or
ganized to oppose prohibitions on
newspapers’ acquiring radio stations.
"I do not think that because a
man publishes a newspaper he
should be denied a radio station
when it is shown that he is best
qualified to operate it,” Dr. Siebert
said. ,
He added that he did not feel
ownership of a radio station by one
newspaper would give it "all-out ad
vantage'1 over a competitor not op
erating a station.
Tracing history over several hun
dred years, Dr. Siebert said news
papers of the United States and
Great Britain were the most Inde
pendent and financially stable be
cause advertising had been de
veloped to a greater extent in those
countries. This financial stability,
he added, enables the press of the
United States and Great Britain
“to resist various pressures.”
While favoring as many news
papers as possible, the witness said
he would rather have one paper
that was financially independent
than "six scrubbing to get along
and subject to outside influence.”

LONDON, Jan. 28.—United States
Ambassador John G. Winant told a
national defense luncheon today i
that the United States plans to re- ,
cruit an army of 7.000.000 men.
“If it is necessary for the women

will do it gladly,” he said.
"Idleness has been no part of our
national life. . . . That is not Amer

be done and its complete supremacy
re-established.”

Fishbein Asks Experts
On Nutrition to Use
War to Correct Diets
A. M. A. Editor Calls for
Single Document Outlining
Minimum Food Needs
Br the Associated Press.
CHICAGO, Jan. 28—Dr. Morris
Fishbein said today now, II ever,
“is the time for leaders in scientific
nutrition to establish for the Amer
ican public eating habits which may
be of Immense benefit to the Na
tion’s health.’’
The editor of ths Journal of the
American Medical Association. In
an Address to the National Food
Distributors Association, recalled the
World War "Eat More Meat” and
“Eat More Wheat” campaigns, and
said:
“People at war may be led Into
national habits in a manner which
can never be duplicated In times of
peace.”
Shortages in Certain Vitamins.
Dr. Fishbein said his one im
portant recommendation was that
representatives of the many agencies
concerned with the supply of food
and nutrition draft for public cir
culation "a single, complete docu
ment representing the minimum es
sentials of information regarding
foods and nutrition.”
He said that if there were any
deficiencies clearly apparent in the
American diet they were in shortages
primarily of certain vitamins and
minerals, but “the answer to these
problems is not, however, the eating
of great quantities of vitamin pills.
We must learn to eat foods and not
vitamins.
"The average person knows little
about calories except that too many
of them make one fat. The average
person probably knows still less
about the significance of the figures
given for protein, calcium or the
vitamins.”
Citisens Need Knowledge.
Improvement of the national nu
trition on a large scale requires, he
said, a fairly good general knowl
edge by the citizen of how much of
each of the essential Ingredients he
requires each day.
"Thus it is already clear that a
daily diet containing a quart of
milk, a reasonably good serving of
one or two leafy green vegetables,
some enriched bread, some butter,
one egg, one fresh fruit and a rea
sonably good serving of meat or
fish would give most of the essen
tials.
"It would then be necessary
merely to vary the diet by a proper
choice of foods and by cooking these
foods so as to make them appetiz
ing.”

after rescue by the Coast Guard,
said the enemy submarine that sank
their ship trailed their lifeboat for
hours and then attempted to fol
low their rescue ship. The Coast
Guard vessel, however, easily out
ran the raider.
Capt. T. J. Harrington, master of
the tanker, was crushed between the
ship's side and a lifeboat, crew mem
bers said, adding that he was the
last man to leave the ship.
Guy Devono, 22-year-old radio
operator of Clarksburg. W. Va.. said: j
"Several of us lowered one lifeboat, j
it capsized and a wave washed it
back on the ship's deck. Then we
lowered another boat and got away.
We rowed to within 50 feet of the
submarine.”
Unable to See Sub Well.
Because of the darkness off the
Delaware coast, he was unable to
see whether the sub was a big one .
or a short-range raider possibly
operating from a mother ship.
"We rowed due west about four
hours. We rested then about 12
hours and then the Coast Guard
picked us up. The sub had been
trailing as and when the rescue
vessel picked us up.” the radio
operator said, the Sub trailed the
Coast Guard boat for about 15
minutes before the submersible was
left behind. Twelve men were
brought to Norfolk.
Seventeen more men off the Pow
ell were brought to Lewes, after
spending seven hours in a lifeboat
before being picked up by a ship
that saw their flares. The tanker
carried 32 men.
Just Made Boat.
Fireman J. A. Ortiz, 22.at sea only
nine months, considered himself one
of the luckiest sailors now looking
for a new berth. He was asleep
when the explosive struck, and "just j
made the boat,” clad in a light 1
pair of pants and one shoe. For- ,
tunately, he explained, others had
on two pairs of pants, two shirts
and extra sweaters.
Oiler Max Schutae was deep in
the engine $x>m with four others
when the plates buckled amidship.
"We had just one chance In a
million of getting out.” he recalled.
He scrambled to the deck and man- '
aged to just make No. 4 boat.
Schutze said Quartermaster Lewis
Reno was one of three men
picked up from the water. And
Reno's calmness, he declared. ■
steadied the shaken seamen and
turned them into a compact life
boat crew fully willing to hope
fully wait for daylight and then
start to row "by the sun.”

Mother Ship Loosed Subs,
Attack Survivors Hold
AN EASTERN CANADIAN PORT.
Jan. 28 upv—Belief that a German
submarine mother ship had released
a pack of U-boats off the North'
American east coast was expressed
today by survivors of a Norwegian
tanker and a Greek freighter, sunk
in the Western Atlantic with a pos
sible loss of 51 lives.
The chief officer of the freighter
said the undersea boat which at
tacked his ship was not a long-range
submarine. "It must be operating,”
he said, “from a mother ship in the
Western Atlantic."
Two hours after the attack the
submarine came to the surface and
approached the lifeboat.
The chief officer of the freighter
said its commander asked the name
of the ship he had sunk, then asked
in precise English whether the sur
vivors needed anything.
He tossed them two packages of
cigarettes and some biscuits and
then left them.
Meanwhile an air and sea search ,
continued for 15 men from the Nor
wegian tanker who might be still
adrift in a lifeboat. Other survivors, j
however, feared the boat might have
capsized in a violent storm a few
hours after the tanker went to the
bottom.
Twenty-one seamen from the
tanker reached port after 10 days in
a lifeboat. Two died ih the boat.
Only 12 of the Greek freighter’s
crew of 43 survived. Four died in
lifeboats during the two and a half
days before they were picked up.

Chairman Connally of the Senate

shipping off the Atlantic coast.
“I feel sure that our navaf ves

operations off the coast and are

Housing

Palmer. The latter bill did not
specify the types of "public works '
needed here.
Mr. Lanham said he wanted both
bills to be considered at hearings
his committee will start at 10 a m.
tomorrow. District Commissioners,
public housing officials and others
are expected to be heard.
Many Projects Authorised.
The bill, drawn by Mr. Lanham
with assistance of Representatives
Bell. Democrat, of Missouri, and
Holmes, Republican, of Massachu
setts, recognizes "an acute shortage
of housing, public works and equip
ment existing and impending in and
near the District of Columbia.”
It authorizes the Public Works
Administration to provide “perma
nent and temporary housing, living
quarters for single persons, schools,
waterworks, sewers, sewage, garbage
and refuse disposal facilities, pub
lic sanitation facilities, works for
the treatment and purification of
water, hospitals, and other places for
the care of the sick, recreational
facilities, streets, roads and other
types of necessary public works and
equipment.”
The District Commissioners are
authorized to receive advance allot
ments from the administrator for
the provision of needed public works
and equipment. With the funds
the Commissioners would employ
engineering and other professional
and technical services and admin
istrative personnel without regard
to civil service requirements.
The bill directs that housing
provided under it be sold, presum
ably after the emergency, as expe
ditiously as possible, “with consid
eration of the full market value."
It states specifically that none of
the housing, unless authorized by
Congress, "may be conveyed to any
public or private agency organized
for slum clearance or to provide
subsidized housing for persons of
low income.”
Criticised by Jones.
Representative Jones, Republican
of Ohio, meanwhile sharply crit
icized in the House Mr. Palmer's
recommendation for expenditure of
$50,000,000 for housing here. He
asked his colleagues to bear in mind
that “Congress appropriated directly
over a billion dollars’* for housing.
He said “another billion dollars
are available from funds gained
through Insull-type of corporate
manipulations. The F. H. A. obli
gates the Government for another
billion dollars worth of defense
housing.” He said that 13 Federal
agencies handle housing “apparent
ly independently without an overall
examiner in the Bureau of Budget.”
The bill introduced by Mr. Lan
ham today differs from the one sug
gested by Mr. Palmer in that It
authorises funds for specific types of
public works. Mr. Eanham’s pro
posed bill has.approval of the Bu
reau of the Budget.

“I have been criticized for sug
gesting that Hitler is our great
enemy; that without Hitler Japan
could get nowhere," he said.
“And where do you suppose Japan
couid get if Britain, Russia and the '
United States were not occupied with i
Hitler in the west and were free toi
join the gallant, long-suffering!
Chinese and hurl their collectiveI
weight on Japan?
"Emboldened by Hitler's successes
and disappointed in China, the am
bitious Japanese struck us in the
Pacific. The Axis chose the time
and the Pacific as the place for our
entry in the war. It is there that
our fleet has been attacked; there
that American territory has been
Invaded: there that Americans are
fighting epic battles against enor
mous odds.
“Why? Because Hitler wants us
to throw all our growing strength
into the Pacific, to stop supplying
the British and the Russians. He
has suffered losses this winter. He
has to gather his strength for
another great offensive. He knows
what our arsenal can deliver, so he
wants to divert our attention to the
more spectacular war in the Pacific.
Won't Fall Into Trap.
“But this is what we propose not
to do; we will not fall into Hitler's
trap.
"We know, as I say. that this Is
all one war. Attacked in the Pacific
and the Atlantic we have to fight
and win in the Pacific and the At
lantic! We dare not turn our backs
to either front. These criminals are
too good with daggers. We must
not confuse history with strategy.
''The main enefn^hirftoricUJ&r may
not be the first enemy strategically.
We cannot concentrate on defeat
ing him alone. We cannot take
them on one at a time when they're
coming two at a time.
“But if some poeple thought I
was in favor of forgetting the Pa
cific; if some people misunderstood
my reminder that the German
monster was still at large and un
subdued, the Navy didn't.
"Since I made that remark Jan
uary 12, the Navy has accounted
tor 18 Japanese ships, and probably
three others, and has done a num
ber of other things discretion for
bids me to report.
Discussing the Navy's role “in the
long, grim days ahead,” Secretary
Knox said;
“In 86 navy yards ships are being
born. A year ago 70 private yards
were working for the Navy—today
It's twice that many. The Navy has
34 air stations. • • • what we
gained in the destroyer trade with
Britain was not bases, but the
right to build bases. They are be
ing built—nearly half a billion dol
lars was spent on them last
year.” • • •
"American sailors and marines
are now serving in Newfoundland, i
in Bermuda, in the Bahamas. An
tigua. Jamaica. St. Lucia. Trinidad
and British Guiana. In the Pacific
they are scattered from the Arctic
to the far-flung islands of the South
Seas—and they will be back in the
Philippines and in Guam and
Wake!”
U. S. Must Be Guarded.
He said the Navy's job "is un
precedented in magnitude” because:
"Unlike the First World War, this
conflict must be fought across both
the Atlantic and the Pacific, upon
land fronts which almost surround
the Eastern Hemisphere and upon
sea fronts in all the oceans of the
world.
"In 1917 we could look in one
direction. In 1942 the United States
must look in all directions at once.
"Not only must we fight, but we
must guard our arsenal of dem
ocracy. • * • We must guard our
coasts. We must also protect our
strategic artery, the Panama Canal
and its approaches and our far-flung
bases.
"But our coasts, our canal, our
bases are only part of it. Our em
battled friends, all the peoples of the
British Empire, the Russians, the
Dutch, the Chinese who have fought

Compromise Worked Out.
The bill embraced a compromise
among Senators holding conflicting
views over the extent to which the
Hatch “clean politics" law should be
amended to let members of political
committee engage in civilian de
fense work for the Government on a
part-time basis without pay or for
nominal compensation.
The compromise, offered as an
amendment to the bill, specifies
.that the proposed exemption from
the Hatch Act will not apply to
draft boards or to dollar-a-year men
'in any eapaelty relating to the pro
curement or manufacture of war
materials.

Entries and Selections for Tomorrow
Rossvan's Comment
Selections for a Fast Track at Hialeah Park
best bet—first fiddle.
FIRST RACE—AKRONTOWN,
BIG TAI.K, THROUGH
TRAIN.
AKRONTOWN has turned in
two fair performances at Hialeah
and he appears ready to earn his
graduation papers. He meets
fair cheap opposition and should
register. BIO TALK was well
played in his debut and he could
be in the thick of the battle.
THROUGH TRAIN may save the
short end.
SECOND RACE—LA JOCONDE,
THROTTLE WIDE, CHAL
LANTE.
LA JOCONDE has threatened
in all of her Florida outings and
she may be able to master the
sort she meets in this affair.
THROTTLE WIDE improved in
her recent test and she may be
a tough customer to dispose of.
CHALLENTE just failed to win
her last two outings and she is a
real threat.
THIRD RACE—TEE MIDGE,
PHARIEN, DARK LAD.
THE MIDGE has been a con
sistent sort since arriving in Flor
ida and he appears to have as
good a chance as anything else
in this wide-open number. PHA
RIEN races as if she has more
ability than she has shown and
she could force the issue through
out. DARK LAD was second in
his debut.
FOURTH RACE—BLOCKADER.
TIME SHEET, UNKNOWN
LAND.
BLOCKADER has been a right
consistent performer of late
and he has the speed to go to
the front with the break and
make every pole a winning one.
TIME SHEET copped at the
Bird Road course and the gelding
rates stout consideration. UN
KNOWN LAND may be in the
money picture.
FIFTH RACE—FIRST FIDDLE,
REMEMB E R I X G, BOLD
QUESTION.
FIRST FIDDLE has trimmed
some of the swiftest 3-year-olds
on the grounds and he should be
able to handle the opposition he
meets here. REMEMBERING
improved to win his last and
right oH that victory he rates a
real chance. BOLD QUESTION
is as good as his recent triumph
suggests.
SIXTH RACE—CITY TALK, HE
MAN, IN QUESTION.
CITY TALK has raced very
well at Hialeah and he has a
corking chance of mastering the
sort he encounters here. W. Day
will be in the saddle and that will
help. HE MAN won twice at
Tropical and he has a nice
chance of licking the top one.
IN QUESTION is as good as his
recent' victory.

OFF SHORE, GINO BEAU.
SPECIFY always has held his
own when matched with horses of
this caliber and he may be able
to score at the first Hialeah ask
ing. OFF SHORE is very con
sistent and he may be able to
threaten from the word go. GINO
BEAU won his recent try and he
could cause a lot of trouble here.
EIGHTH RACE — LA JOYA,
WISE HOBBY, BLUMERE.
LA JOYA improved to win his
first local start and If the mare
will turn in the same sort of ef
fort tomorrow we should see her

been threatening in all of his re
cent tests and he could be hard
to handle. BLUMERE just gal
loped to win his last with ease.
