Tokio Claims Sinking
Of 2 Dutch Cruisers, Damage to U. S. Ship Earlier Communique Said Flyers Had Destroyed Marblehead Class Vessel (The followln* disMtAh w»* sent from an enemy country, whose motive In releasing news is likely to be props canda. Axis claims should be credited only when confirmed by American or Allied sourcee. 1 By the Associated Press. TOKIO (From Japanese Broad casts*, Feb. 8. — Two Dutch cruisers were sunk and a third Dutch cruiser and a United States cruiser of the Marble head class were heavily damaged by Japanese naval planes in the Java Sea, Japanese imperial headquarters claimed today. This was the score in a sea and air engagement reported In a com munique broadcast by Domel sev eral hours after an earlier com munique was broadcast listing one Dutch and one American cruiser and a 5,000-ton vessel as sunk in the fight. (The Navy Department said today it had "no information here" concerning Japanese claims that a cruiser of the Marblehead class had been heavily damaged in the Java Sea. (The Japanese sinoe the war’s outbreak have made many ex travagant claims of having sunk or heavily damaged American and British warships, but these have been discounted in Wash ington and London generally as ■'fishing expeditions” launched In an effort to gain information.) The text of the second com munique : ‘‘Japanese naval bombers on the day following the mass raid on Soerabaja spotted on February 4 the main Netherlands East Indies fleet, escorted by destroyers, at a point 30 miles south of Kangean Island, and sank two Dutch cruis ers and also heavily damaged an other Dutch cruiser and one Amer ican cruser of the Marblehead type. "One 5,000-ton enemy vessel also was sunk. "One Japanese plane is missing from the operations. "The Dutch cruisers sunk in eluded one of the Java type, of 6.670 tons; of the De Ruyter type, of 6.450 tons. "The United States cruiser was listed as of 7.050 tons. “The Japanese air action resulted in virtual annihilation of the Dutch Navy.” 0. C. D.

Mr. Taber, in revealing that these employes are paid out of funds ap propriated last summer or fall for the Office of Emergency Manage ment, said: "There is not too good legal au thority for the use of this money in this way." Representative Hinshaw, Repub lican, of California, asked if Con gress had no authority to halt such expenditures, to which Mr. Taber replied that he thought it did pro vided it took the necessary steps. ' Use of New Fond Barred. Represenative Cannon said his amendment would provide “that no part of this appropriation shall be used to pay any per son in the Office of Civilian De fense unless such person is directly employed in the administration of such act of January 27, 1942”—the act setting up the O. C. D. Representative Marcantonio,. American-Labor, of New York arose to declare that In his opinion Mayor La Guardia could m no way be held responsible for the appointment of these people to paid jobs In the Volunteer Participation Division of the O. C. D. Representative Vorys, Republican, of Ohio asked why Mayor La Guardia, if he did not approve of these appointments, did not re move the individuals from the rolls. No satisfactory answer seemed to be forthcoming to this question. “There are items in this appro priation bill,” said Mr. Taber, as he began his discussion of the mer ger, "which are almost a sacrilege when It comes to considering the position of the American taxpayer today. President Roosevelt recently spoke of 'parasites’ in Washington who should be removed to give room for the national defense setup. I intend to speak of things which should be done for the elimination of ’parasites’ from Washington. "In Webster's Dictionary the word •parasite’ is defined as ‘one who eats at the table of ahother, repayihg him with flattery and buffoonery.’* Calls Employes ‘Parasites.’ Mr. Taber said that this defini tion applied to a number of people on the Federal payroll and that he had selected from the list the names of several he intended to mention. "Take Mr. Ickes to start with,” he said. “He has started Communistic operations in Puerto Rico which will cost $200,000,000, which have already proved a failure and he has put down there Rexford Tugwell as Gov ernor. You remember Mr. Ickes is also the oil administrator.” Getting down to the employes of the O. C. D. whom he designated as "parasites,” Mr. Taber mentioned first Bernard F. Dickman, former Mayor of St. Louis. He said: "Boondoggling” Again. "Something should be done to put an end to this promotion of fan dancing and moving pictures to amuse the people. We are treading on toes high up, but those toes high up must get around to a point where they will be willing to make sacri fices, too.” Applause greeted this remark from both Democratic and Republican aides of the House. Mr. Dickman had been defeated at the polls not long ago. “Now he appears on the rolls of civilian defense as an inspector general at $6,500. Then there is Melvyn Douglas, moving picture ac tor about whom already a great deal has been said, to be paid at the rate of $8,000 a year. Then there is Betty Lindsay at *5,600.

La Guardia Suspends Civil Service Unit, Orders Aides Ousted Follows City Board's Refusal to Sanction Salaries of Appointees * Br the Axoctited Preu NEW YORK, Feb. Mayor F. H. La Guardia today suspend ed the Municipal Civil Service Commission and ordered Presi dent Paul J. Kern and the two other commissioners to show cause why they should not be re moved from office. The order is returnable at 11 a.m. Monday at City Hall. “My action speaks for itself,” Mr. La Guardia said before leaving for Washington. “One agency of Gov ernment cannot attack another agency and not impair its useful ness. No executive can stand for this type of action.” The Mayor’s move arose from the commission’s decision to appeal a court order requiring salary pay ments to four employes of the new ly-created, city-wide Register’s Of fice. The commission held that the rolls included political appointees who did not qualify under civil service. The State Civil Service Commission made no objection to retention of the four employes. After he was served with the order Mr. Kern said he went to see the Mayor Wednesday to discuss the case, but that Mr. La Guardia said "he was too busy with war work to dicuss a trivial case like this.” Dissatisfied with the Mayor’s at titude, Mr. Kern said the commis sion decided to appeal.

Official sources said the Germans may have chartered ships from the Prenyl to help maintain the flow of supplies for Field Marshal Erwin Rommel's North African Army. They added that any action to in tercept such transports would be taken with full co-operation of the United tSates, which has maintained diplomatic relations with the Vichy government. In Dublin the government of Eire issued a formal denial of a report appearing in the London Daily Herald that Nazi seaplanes lie in ambush around small islands off the south coast of Eire waiting oppor tunities to attack British shipping. The Eire Bureau of Information said “This story, like former ac counts about petrol being supplied to submarines, is without a shadow of foundation.” Lash, who is on the rolls as a con sultant. He mentioned also Mal colm Cowley, whom he described as a supporter of Communist candi dates for office in this country, in cluding William Z. Foster, Com munist candidate for President. “Almost all of these people are on the rolls of the Dies Committee in vestigation,” he said. “I have mentioned Just a few of these outstanding parasites,” said Mr. Taber. They are leeches who should be removed. Unless they are taken off the Government payroll there will be no money left to buy guns, planes to fight this war. Travesty Out of Defense. “The Treasury Department is em ploying Walt Disney to make a mov ing picture at a cost of $80,000 to persuade the people to pay their Income taxes. Great God, can you think of anything that would make the people less willing to pay taxes than that? • Tftat money could be used for a bomber. But perhaps there is no limit to this making a travesty out of national defense activities.” Chairman May of the Military Affairs Committee, asked why the Appropriations Committee had not asked for amendments to prevent such expenditures. “I have,” replied Mr. Taber, further declaring then that he in tended to press far them during the consideration of the bill. F.W.A. Official Warns Of Disaster if Housing Projects Are Curbed Snyder Denies Adverse Post-War Effects Will Result From Program (Earlier Housing Story on Page B-l.) Acting Federal Works Administra tor Baird Snyder, 3d, today warned that disaster may be the result if defense housing projects are slowed up because of fear of their poatwar effects. Making his first public addrses since his appointment as Assistant F. W. A. Administrator, Mr. Snyder told the National Public Housing Conference that there will be much housing to salvage from existing and proposed defense housing programs that will add to the Nation's wealth. Defense Housing Co-ordinator Charles F. Palmer, another speaker at a conference luncheon at the Washington Hotel, told the gather ing of housing experts that after the war is over public housing should expand "almost explosively." 600,000 Homes s Tear Sara. He said he hoped that at least 600.000 homes would be built every year for 10 years after the war, declaring that this would provide housing for a “substantial portion" of the one-third of the Nation that is now ill-housed. Replying to a personal attack made on him earlier by Michael Straight, Washington editor of the New Republic, Mr. Palmer denied that he had received a commission from the Government in connection with Tec-wood, Inc., a slum-clear ance project in Atlanta. Mr. Palmer, who was a real estate broker in Atlanta when he was con nected with the project in 1933, said he received commissions from the owner for the sale of the land for the project. Mr. Straight, speaking at a morn ing session, had demanded a con gressional investigation of Mr. Pal mer, charging that the co-ordinator had obtained a commission of “many thousands of dollars in the Tec wood project in violation of an ex plicit order that no commission to real estate men could be tolerated.” Charges Relative Got Benefits. Mr. Straight also said Congress should inquire “into the benefits which Mr. Palmer’s father-in-law in Atlanta has obtained from war time housing projects certified by Mr. Palmer’s office.’’ Replying to this latter statement, Mr. Palmer explained that his father-in-law had bought the old Camp Gordon outside of Atlanta 30 years ago. Last spring, when the Navy decided to build an air station on the property, Mr. Palmer said he notified the Federal agencies in volved that he did not want to have anything to do with any decisions on his father-in-law's property. Since that time, Mr. Palmer added, the Government bought some addi tional land from his father-in-law for an airfield housing project. Mr. Palmer emphasized that he had nothing to do personally with either of the projects at any time. Lee's Godchild Dies By the Associated Press. LEXINGTON. Va., Feb. Mrs. Walter L.

MANSFIELD, Ohio, Feb. 6.—The centralized school of Butler, IS miles south of here, was closed today after a demonstration by striking stu dents, during which two School Board members were beaten by non students. Boyd Robinson, county school su perintendent, ordered classes sus pended pending settlement of a stu dent protest over the 10-day suspen sion by the Board of Education of Willard S. Weekley, superintendent charged With "misconduct.” An estimated 300 of the school's 450 pupils milled about the school this morning, refusing to attend classes during the demonstration. Board members Kinsey Morgan and Rupert Roberts said they were dragged from their car by 10 or 13 men and beaten so severely they required medical treatment. They said students did not participate In the attack and attributed it to ill feeling by townspeople, some of whom have been seeking Mr. Week ley’s ouster. I Submarine (Continued From First Page.) Canadian Atlantic Coast in recent weeks and the 17th to go to the bottom. It was northbound when attacked. ITie tanker was listed as a 8.327 ton ship, 468 feet long and built in 1921 at Quincy, Mass. New York was its home port. The skipper said the torpedo hit I the ship just behind the engine ■ room. Only two or three of the men on duty there were able to escape before the sea poured in, he added. Capt. Johnson said he was washed overboard, but managed to swim to the lifeboat. The first mate was on duty when the torpedo struck and went below decks for a check, Capt. Johnson said. The captain never saw him again. “Men Flying All Over." He said the submarine gave the boat time to get clear before shell ing, but he heard men who could not be saved shouting in the water. "It seemed to me men were flying all over from force of the concus sion,” he commented. Just before dawn today—after two nights and a day of subsistence on sea biscuits and water from the life boat stores—the survivors were sighted 12 miles off Ocean City by, Frank D. Marshall of Atlantic City. Women's Autumn Footwear Will Be Made in Six Colors By the AaeocUted Preu. NEW YORK, Feb. Women’s autumn footwear will have just six colors, including black, industry and Government representatives decided today. Men will have black and six shades of brown, including two tones now used for Army shoes. The colors were agreed on at a meeting of representatives of the Tanners’ Council of America, Na tional Shoe Retailers Association, National Boot and Shoe Manufac turers Association, Textile Color Card Association and the War Pro duction Board’s Leather Conserva tion Division. Women’s shades, repeated from the 1941 autumn and 1942 spring odors, will be town brown, golden tobacco, turf tan, kona red, blue jacket and black. These colors, styl ists pointed out, will blend well with the subdued colors autumn cos tumers will display. Men can choose from Yankee brown, national brown, charro brown and a cordovan tone, like Chilean brown, which will be called rio cordo. In addition there will be garrison tan and service tan. “The adoption of a color program this far in advance,” said the Na tional Shoe Retailers Association, “is not simply a matter of style forecasting. The purpose Is the con servation of leather, chemicals and other important commodities desired by the Government.” More than 90 per cent of the shoes sold this autumn will adhere to the adopted colors, which take the least possible amount of dyes. Pound Defends Right Of Papers to Own Radio Stations ' F. C. C. Hearing Recessed After Testimony by Noted Harvard Dean (Earlier Story oir Pace A-J.) Br th« Aueeitted Prut. Roscoe Pound, dean emeritus of the Harvard Law School, told the Federal Communications Commis sion today it should pass individually on applications for radio stations, and not adopt "hard and fast rules” which would prohibit newspapers from acquiring stations. Mr. Pound contended the commis sion should consider all factors in each application because "a general rule cannot take care of exceptions and conditions.” "There is need for individualizing." he said. “There are more and more cases where you cannot apply a hard and fast rule.” Hearings Receased. The commission is investigating newspaper-radio relationships to determine its future policy on ap plications by newspaper interests. Mr. Pound was the late witness for the Newspaper-Radio Committee, organized to oppose prohibitions against newspapers. Attorneys for the F. C. C. said they would present several more witnesses, but the hear ings recessed without a date being fixed for reopening them Asked his opinion of so-called “one-one” cities, in which the only daily newspaper controls the only broadcast station, Mr. Pound replied that "theoretically it looks pretty bad, but I do not think it is an actuality.” “Is there any such thing as a per son cut off from all but the local radio station?” he asked. Chairman Jamea Lawrence Fly asked Mr. Pound his attitude in the case of rival applications, one by a newspaper and the other non newspaper. Mr. Pound said he felt it proper for the commission to "take account of” newspaper ownership in such cases, but that he did not feel this should be a controlling factor in itself. "Infringement’* Feared. Mr. Pound said the promulgation of rules discriminating against any class, such as newspaper owners, or any church group, would be "in fringing considerably'’ on the Bill of Rights. "When you begin to encroach, the tendency is to extend control," he said. “The time to resist is in the beginning” Donald Harris, an F. C. C. attor ney. remarked that some people felt “affirmative Government action” was necessary to safeguard freedom of speech and freedom of the press. “That,” Mr. Pound commented, “is errant nonsense. The tendency of those who have power is to reach out for more power. Any Govern ment control of the press is the beginnning of autocracy.” Asked by Mr. Harris whether he felt the question "before the house" involved freedom of speech and freedom of press. Mr. Pound replied: "It is distinctly a move in that direction” Madisonvllle. Tex.; Fireman A. C. Beadford, Pine Bluff, Ark.; Seaman Charles A. Seervild, Center Mo riches, N. Y.; Radioman Edward J. Shear. Hammonton, Ind.. and Fire man Bart Palmer, Fayvllle, N. Y. The India Aroow was the 18th ship reported attacked by enemy sub marines off the United States and Mr. Marshall took them aboard his craft and, towing the empty life boat astern, brought them to the Atlantic City Coast Guard station. Here the men were held incommu nicado until naval officers arrived from Philadelphia. "Swearing With Rage.” None required medical attention although some were bruised and all were exhausted. Capt. Johnson said that when the torpedo struck men came up on the deck "swearing with rage. We sent out an SSS (submarine) signal with our call letters, but didn't get a chance to give our position.” The captain said he was anxious to get back to his wife and their three children on Staten Island. They are Josephine, 9; Carl, Jr, 8, and Charlotte, "my favorite,” 4. It was the third major sea ad venture for Capt. Johnson, who was a lieutenant in the naval overseas service in World War 1. Back in 1917, he was second mate of the Admiral Clark, a freighter which was sunk in a hurricane 90 miles south of Cuba. "Six of us got away on a life raft. We sat on that raft for seven days and seven nights without a bite to eat or a drop to drink.” Anxious to Get to Sea Again. In 1936, when he was second mate on the tanker Standard Arrow, he rescued 33 men after an Army en gineer’s dredge sank in New York Harbor. “As soon as I get my papers straightened out, I’m going right out to sea again,” the master de clared. Among the officers missing on the India Arrow, the captain said, were: First Mate Joseph Davis of the Bronx, New York. Second Mate Arthur Brouillet. Third Mate James Winn. Chief Engineer Erich Suderow, Staten Island, N. Y. First Assistant Engineer Brittlng ham, Long Island. N. Y. Second Assistant Engineer Walter White. Third Assistant Engineer George Truitt. Skipper’s Foot Crushed. Capt. Johnson, gray-haired, 48, and cheerful despite his ordeal, re mained active at the Coast Guard station, but the others here soon sound asleep. They stopped only for a breakfast of bacon and eggs, then a bath. Limping, Capt. Johnson said his foot had been crushed. A lieutenant in the Naval Reserve, he had been at sea 34 years, but was making his first voyage on the India Arrow. He had been anticipating a sub marine attack, but saw nothing of the attacker, he said. There were four lifeboats, but two went down with the ship. Capt. Johnson said, and the third prob ably was trapped in the fire. ”1 am doubtful if any others sur vived,” said the skipper. Survivors Reach Lisbon. LISBON. Portugal, Feb. 6 OP).— A Greek freighter flying the Swiss flag reached here today with 40 offi cers and members of the crew of P»n Norway, which was sunk In the Atlantic about 13 days ago. Six survivors, including the ship's first officer, Robertsen Zhrard, were wounded by shell fragments.

HASTY WIRE won his last with speed to spare and if he will show another effort as good he is very apt to make it two in a row. SIR GIBSON disappointed in his last but he scored pre viously by a half-doaen lengths. WANNA HYGRO wins often and she has to be accorded money consideration. •THIRD RACE—MORE THAN FEW, PAINT POT, HARD BLAST. MORE THAN FEW won his re- ’ cent outing with something left at the end and he has worked well since that showing. A steady ride could be all that is needed for victory. PAINT POT came to life with a surprise tri umph the other day and he rates with this sort. HARD BLAST could save the show. FOURTH RACE — NAVARIN. WHO REIGH, STAND ALONE. NAVARIN has turned in several nice tests at this session aqd the gelding always has been partial to the turf course. He will ap preciate the long route.
