Full utilization of the Nation's vast reservoir of draft-age man power has been proposed by Repre sentative Priest. Democrat, of Ten nessee under a plan which would permit the President to assign civil ian positions to those deferred from duty with the armed forces. Mr. Priest introduced a measure for amendment of the Draft Act to accomplish that objective. His plan would affect those deferred because of occupations, dependents or dis ability. And, he added, that even that action might not go far enough. ''The time may not be far off." he said, when it will be necessary to register women and assign them to tasks necessary to enable us to con tinue successful prosecution of the war.” Mr. Priest noted that his measure was somewhat similar to a proposal discussed recently by Mrs Roosevelt, but explained that ' any connection is purely coincidental.’’ Reds Repeat Report French Gave Warships to Nazis By the Associated Press.

His arguments were in sharp con trast to those of the previously I heard defendants, who without hes f itation accepted full responsibility for their terms in office. Jacomet charged the Renault works with profiteering in the man ufacture of tanks, asserting that ; the price of the Renault tank fell ; from 290.000 francs to 190.000 francs i the moment the firm's monoply was broken. — Severe Fighting Rages In Southwest Shantung B» th« Associated Pres*.

Investors 'Misled' On Gas Light Stock, Hankin Reasserts P. U. C. Head, However, Denies Imposing Any Liability on Company Gregory Hankin, chairman of the Public Utilities Commission, today restated for the official record—but with a modifying explanation—his declaration of Tuesday that he felt the Washington Gas Light Co. had ••misled” the investing public when it floated a 1936 Issue of conveiUble preferred stock. His declaration again was denied by counsel for the company and in response to repeated requests from the company’s spokesman Mr. Han kin declared: "I will say this—that I did not use the world misled’ or the word ’mis leading’ in a sense imposing any lia bility on the officers or directors of the Washington Gas Light Co., or upon the company itself.” Prettyman Explains. E Barrett Prettyman. the com pany counsel, had Insisted that the company was sound and eco nomically operated and that it in no sense misled the stock-buying public in the sale of the 1936 pre ferred stock issue, that the terms of the convertible preferred stock were made known and that the investors had had available current market i reports on the market value of com mon stock As Mr. Prettyman concluded his explanation of the financial issue, Mr. Hankin modified his earlier statements by saying the company counsel’s statement would have been complete if he had ended with a remark of ’’and the devil take the hindmost.” The issue arose out of the Tues day public hearing before the P. U. C. on the petition of the com pany for authority to issue 90 000 shares of additional preferred stock as a means of getting money to finance expansion and operation of the gas service The commission has not yet decided on the stock issue. Extraordinary Hearing. An extraordinary public hearing was convened at 11 a m. today after Mr. Prettvman had discovered that Mr. Hankin's statement about the public being "misled" did not ap pear in the official transcript of the Tuesday hearing Members of the P. U. C. staff, including Mr. Hankin. the official stenographer and newspaper reporters, were called to the stand today as the com mission investigated the mystery of the omission of what were the snarpest words said at the Tuesday hearing. After two hours of investigation and testimony, it was developed that no one had asked or directed the official stenographer to leave any thing out of the official record and that Mr. Hankin's charge was lost during fast and heated debate. As the commission heard the com mercial stenographer read and re read from his stenographic notes, the commission was convinced there were "many" misinterpretations or commissions in the transcribed rec ord. History of 1936 Issue. The financial history was that the 1936 issue of preferred stock was to be convertible into common stock at the election of the stockholder, on the basis of one share of preferred stock for three of common. This stock has not been converted, but Mr. Prettyman stated and restated that this would be done anytime the preferred stockholder asked that it be done, and he reminded the com mission today that neither the com pany nor the commission has any control over the market price of the common stock. Mr. Hankin explained that he felt the buying public had been • misled" because, he said, it had not been told that if an investor bought a $100 share of preferred stock and converted it into common shares "he would be converting something worth $100 into some ; thing worth $60 ” Mr. Prettyman challenged the commission chairman on this point on the ground the public had avail able the market quotations on com mon stock when the stock was floated. But Mr. Hankin insisted i there should have been some addi j tional statement from the company I so that the public would not be | "buying a pig in a poke .” i During the long discussion be 1 tween Mr. Prettyman and Mr. 1 Hankin over the "misleading" declaration, the commission chair man said that he and Mr. Pretty man were agreed on the "facts.” bui , were not. in agreement on the “cors ' elusions" to be drawn from the facts.

Mr. Fly emphatically replied “no” when Mr Cox asked whether Mr Fly and other commission members had not proceeded in the case with the intention of banning joint mem bership He denied that he ever had contended the commission had au thority in the matter and said "there is a serious question as to whether the commission can do anything about it” if it should develop that something should be done. Mr Fly was questioned sharply on failure of the commission to dis miss Goodwin Watson, chief analyst of the foreign propaganda section, after the House had refused to ap propriate funds for Mr. Watson's salary. "Aren't you concerned about the intent of Congress?" asked Repre sentative Nichols, Democrat, of Oklahoma ■‘Yes.” replied Mr. Fly. “I think I'm under a duty to give Congress all the facts bearing on the matter before a final decision is made. The commission felt the Senate com mittee ought to see the man and hear him.” Mr Fly added that he held “no brief” for Mr. Watson and "frankly I don't believe in all the things” he has said.
