Scrap Seen Retarding Jap Blast Furnace Program B* the Associated Press. Edwin C. Banninger. president of the Steel and Scrap Iron Institute, ' declared today that large-scale ship- j merits of American scrap metal to Japan “may work out to the benefit of the United States in the present | war.” He told a House Military Affairs (subcommittee that the ready sup ply of United Sstates scrap metal available to Japan before the em bargo of 1940 may have prevented large-scale development of Jap anese blast furnace facilities for ex ploiting the iron deposits of Man chukuo and other Far East areas. Chairman Faddis of the subcom mittee agreed that "it was the opinion of those acquainted with the situation that it was good policy to keep the Japanese dependent on us because they were not then de veloping their own facilities.” "That sounds like a whitewash of this appeasement policy," protested Representative Martin,. Republican, of Iowa. "I don't think I can agree with that reasoning. I would like to know first how large a stock pile Japan has piled up of this scrap.” Mr. Banninger said the scrap in dustry had shipped metal to Japan only when sales were consistent with Government policy, but that even after the embargo American steel mills continued to ship new steel to Japan. The Japanese also still received iron ore from the Philip pines. he added. 'Grim Energy' of U. S. Troops At Panama Pleases Stimson (Earlier Story on Page A-5.) B* •f'e Associated Press. BALBOA, Canal Zone, March 12.— Secretary of War Stimson said today he was pleased to find here “grim energy and determination" and that nowhere in his three days of inspec tion of the Canal Zone had he found any dangerous spirit of overconfl- j dence.

This com pany, Mr. Strenz testified, was en gaged in building ships which were paid for by the British and not out of lease-lend appropriations. The British, he said, furnished the facilities so the company needed relatively little capital of its own. Paid for Knowledge. "We were only acting as an agent." he said.

March 12.—A “John Doe" inquiry into the paving of the private courtyard of Democratic National Chairman Edward J. Flynn at Lake Mahopac. allegedly by city laborors, will be conducted by Dis trict Attorney Samuel Foley of the Bronx within a week or 10 days, Mr. Foley announced today. The grand jury will sift evidence to ascertain if there were any illegal phases in the use of city labor at Mr. Flynn's estate. Meanwhile. Commissioner of In vestigation William B. Herlands. said that on February 20 he had reported to Mayor La Guardia the “unlawful use of municipal em ployes. materials and equipment" in the paving of the Flynn courtyard This, he pointed out, was 16 days before Paul J. Kern, ousted head of the Municipal Civil Service Com mission, had “broken the story.” The full 11-page report made public today by Mr. Herlands said that “employes of the Bronx bor ough president's office, using city cars, tools and material, performed an elaborate paving job at the country estate of Edward J. Flynn at Mahopac. N. Y. Arrangements for the performance of the work were made by Fred Dennerlein, in spector of regulating, grading and paving in the Bronx borough presi i dent's office. The job occupied 10 city workmen and their foreman over a four-day period and involved laying 8.000 granite paving blocks taken from a city-owned supply. In addition, a gang of 11 city workmen were used to load the paving blocks on private trucks for transportation to the Flynn estate.” Fierce Fighting Reported on Southern Front 2,000 Nazis Said To Have Been Slain In Break-Throughs (Earlier Story on Page A-l.) Bv tee Arsociatec" Press. LONDON, March 12.—The Red Army was reported tonight to have thrown 1,500,000 men into violent fighting on a broad south ern front, attacking primarily in the directions of Kharkov, Sta iino and Taganrog. Dispatches to Moscow from the front reported that the Russians had effected break-throughs at several places on the southern front, killing 2.000 Nazi soldiers and seizing two large junction points. Germans Admit Reverses. Simultaneously, heavy Soviet tank forces were reported smashing ahead in the Orel sector, 250 miles north of Kharkov. In this area, the Ger man high command, as quoted by the Berlin radio, conceded the Rus sians had broken through their line northeast of Orel and declared a mass attack had forced the German divisions entirely on the defensive. Marshal Semeon Timoshenko was said to be employing upward of 90 armored and infantry divisions in the great southern push, aimed at driving the Nazis back across the Dnieper River along a line from Dnieperopetrovsk south to the Black Sea. At the same time, the Russians were said to be intensifying their attacks at many points on the cen tral and northern fronts and blast ing incessantly at the encircled 16th German Army at Staraya Russa. Aim to Annihilate Force. The early annihilation of this force, before the Germans are able to mass sufficient relief troops to the south and west of Lake Ilmen, was believed by qualified London sources to be an essential part of the Soviet strategy. Cleanup in that sector would free two or three Russian army corps— ! sufficient, probably, to give the Red Army a heavy superiority in man power for a quick thrust westward toward Lake Peipus. Such an oper ation would expose the flank and rear of all the German armies be sieging Leningrad and holding the Volkhov-Lake Ladoga line. Bill Would Repeal Pensions For Appointive Employes Repeal of pensions for about 250 000 appointive officers and employes of the Federal Governr|ent through the recently enacted Ramspeck Act was urged today by Representative Smith. Republican, of Ohio, who introduced a bill with that objective. "They are purely political ap pointments," he said, "and have nothing to do with civil service or the merit system. They receive sal- , aries up to $10,000, possibly $18,000 a year, and the pensions provided for them run up to $5,000 per year , and would cost the Government more than $44,000,000 annually." Mr. Smith warned that “the mere repeal of Congressmen's pensions was not enough. This Congress will not have done its duty unless it re* 1 peals these other pensions." He said e\*ery member of Congress will be afforded an opportunity to go on record in this matter because he in tends to place a discharge petition on the Speaker's desk unless the Civil Service Committee reports out his bill. Mr. Smith said employes of the Securities and Exchange Commis sion have informed him that they are supporting his bill 100 per cent.
