Knox and King Report
To President Today On Midway Battle Parley Is Slated After Roosevelt Lunches With Marshall and Hopkins President Roosevelt today ar ranged to receive first-hand re ports from Secretary of the Navy Knox and Admiral Ernest J King, commander in chief of the United States Fleet, on progress of the great naval bat tle in the Central Pacific. Secretary Knox and Admiral King were scheduled to confer with the President at 2 pin. after Mr. Roosevelt had lunch with Gen. George C. Marshall, Army chief of staff, and Harry L. Hopkins, lease lend administrator. It was presumed that Mr. Roose velt would review with the Navy heads the entire situation in the Pacific following the major United States victory over Japanese forces which attempted an invasion of Midway Island last week. Word on Pursuit Awaited. Meanwhile, the American public, having received no detailed official information on fighting in the Cen tral or Northern Pacific since Sun day night, awaited word on progress of American naval units seeking out the retreating Japanese remnants of the Midway battle. The last report or any kind came last night from Pearl Harbor, but it revealed nothing. Headquarters of the Pacific Fleet said "there is nothing to report from the Central Pacific area." While the battered Japanese limped back toward home, observers at Pearl Harbor expressed the opin ion, according to the Associated Press, that the Japs sought hiding near home waters, where they would prepare — with reinforcements — for another “face saving” assault against American defenses in the Pacific. Last Thursday morning the mightiest naval force Japan ever sent across the international date line—reportedly the bulk of that country’s sea power—launched a heavy attack on Midway Island, America's westernmost bastion in the Hawaiian group. Saturday what was left of the fleet after a relentless pounding by United States sea and air forces slunk away to seek hiding in home waters. Contact with the enemy was lost Saturday night, said Admiral Chester W. Nimitz. commander of the Pacific Fleet. But before contact was lost, official reports said, the Americans had dealt this bitter punishment to the enemy; At least three warships sunk, 11 more heavily damaged and the ac companying air arm practically wiped out. Against this liquidation of Jap anese sea power, announced United States losses were one destroyer sunk, one airplane carrier damaged and some planes destroyed. Official reports listed these cas ualties to the enemy in addition to the disastrous blow against its air arm: Two (possibly three i aircraft car riers and one destroyer sunk. One aircraft carrier (possibly two), three battleships, four (possibly six) cruisers and three transports damaged. Thus, whatever dream Japan may have had for occupation of the Hawaiian Islands was turned into a nightmare of destruction. Ways and Means Backs Boost in Excise on Wines (Earlier Story on Page A-4.) Br the Associated Pre's. The House Ways and Means Committee agreed tentatively to day to boost excise taxes on wines to produce about $13,000,000 addi tional revenue. Chairman Doughton said that the committee had agreed to raise wines With less than 14 per cent alcohol from the present 8 cents a gallon to 10 cents; wines with from 14 to 21 per cent alcohol, from 30 to 40 cents: wines with more than 21 per cent alcohol, from 65 cents to a dol lar a gallon; sparkling wines, from 7 cents a half pint to 10 cents: ax-tificial carbonated wines and liqueurs and cordials, from 3’2 cents a half pint to 5 cents. Secretary of the Treasury Mor genthau had asked for increased excises on wines to raise $25,000,000, but the committee chose to make less drastic increases in two cate gories—those of lower alcoholic con tent—than he had proposed. Fingerprints <Continued From First Page h cate. Their interest was aroused by indications that his fingertips had been altered. He refused to tell them who had done it. but described the process. He said that the skin on his fingertips had been cut away to the bone and that his hands then were bound to his chest, his arms crossed. After two weeks, the fin gers were cut loose, leaving skin from his chest to form new finger prints. Scars on each side of his chest testified to the method. Mr Hoover commented that the doctors’ efforts had accomplished nothing since the peculiar classifi cation created by the mutilation made it easier to trace the prints. Hoover said that Pitts had served sentences for auto theft and house breaking in both federal and state prisons and that while in Alcatraz prison from 1936 to 1938 he met criminals who had known Dr. Brandenburg, one of whom gave him a message to take to Dr. Brand enburg when he left Alcatraz. £n route to New Jersey. Pitts stopped in North Carolina and com mitted the burglary. After Pitts reached Union City General Hospital, Mr. Hoover said. Dr. Welcher removed a scar from his face. The fingertip operation was performed at Dr*Brandenburg's home, the FBI chief added. ,He said that during Pitt's conval eseneq the fugnive was kept part of the time in the home of the aged mother of Everett and part of the* time at a home in North Bergen, K J, Mr, Hoover said that Munick and Marra, chauffeurs for Dr. Branden burg. drove Pitts back and forth for treatment during the convalescence.

Finns ‘‘Tired of War.” “The Finns are bitter about the United States’ going into the war on the Russian side,” Miss Bastrom said. "But they don’t like the Ger mans either, although they have to tolerate them. Beggars can't be choosers.” Manuel Johannson. and his wife.

An average requirement of from one and a half to two and a half ounces of crude rubber would be needed for each tire, he said, as an | adhesive to bind the reclaimed rubber to -the tire carcass. The total annual amount, he added, would represent “but a fraction of 1 per cent” of crude rubber stocks, which he estimated at 750,000 long tons. “It is apparent." Senator Ellender said, "that all that is needed to greatly increase our production of reclaimed rubber is a co-ordinated and well organized program of col lecting. plus full use of our present rubber reclaiming facilities." For Vital Purposes Only. Senator Ellender explained that the 20,000.000 cars would be utilized to carry war workers and for other | essential purposes, excluding joy ■ riding and sightseeing. Glenn L. Martin, president of the 1 huge bomber plant near Baltimore, Md.. testified in support of the ; pending bill after explaining that I some 40,000 of 42,500 workers now employed in his plant used automo biles to reach their war jobs. In reply to questions of Senators, Mr. Martin said he expected to ex pand his Baltimore bomber plant to at least 53,000 workers and that some sort of a supply of tires for automobiles and buses was essen tial. 1 J. Penfield Seiberling. President of ! the Seiberling Rubber Co. Ohio, al so expressed general approval of the bill. He protested, however, that its definition of independent tire deal ers. who would be given sole au thority for inspection, sale and re capping of tires, was "too broad." “I'm willing to go far enough on that so that manufacturers shall not sell tires." commented Senator Taft, Republican of Ohio, “but when we say that some dealers can sell and some who have been in bus iness all their lives, can't sell, then we are going pretty far.” Bigger Synthetic Output Seen. Arthur B. Newhall. rubber co ordinator for the War Production Board, estimated to a Senatee Agri culture Subcommittee today that 30,000 tons of synthetic rubber would be produced this year and a minimum of 300.000 tons next year. He put the current production rate at 2.000 tons a month. Senator Thomas, Democrat, of Oklahoma, asked Mr. Newhall what had been done toward building plants with a capacity of 800.000 tons of rubber a year. “The money for the plants has been allocated.” Mr. Newhall re plied. "the locations have been de termined. the engineering work is all completed, construction in many cases is under way. and some of the plants will be completed this year.” In addition to the 800,000* tons definitely on the WPB program, Newhall said tentative approval had been given another 200.000 tons capacity, provided it could be at tained without the use of large quantities of critical material. Ways Will Be Found. Last year, he said, the United States consumed 766.000 tons of rubber for all purposes, Including civilian use. “All the rubber we see in sight for the next two years could be used advantageously by the military services," Mr. Newhall added. “Every pound we use for any other purpose would take that much away from the war effort.” Senator Murray, Democrat, of Montana, predicted after a confer ence with President Roosevelt today that ways would be found to keep approximately 20,000,000 automo biles in operation, as essential to the working of the American eco nomic system. The Senator discussed the inter linked problems of gasoline, rubber and transportation with the chief Executive and said Mr. Roosevelt was giving them “earnest study.” New York Bonk Stocks new YORK.

Belief that the Federal Communi cations Commission lacks power to make newspaper owners ineligible for radio broadcasting licenses was expressed today by Louis G. Cald well, Washington, counsel for the Mutual Broadcasting System. But, Mr. Caldwell told a House interstate subcommittee studying proposed changes in the Communi cations Act, "A lawyer must be reckless indeed to prophesy what the Supreme Court will hold these days.” Specific Stand Urged. The FCC recently held prolonged hearings on the question of joint ownership of newspapers and broad casting stations and pending a final ruling as to its powers in this re spect has deferred action on ap plications of newspaper owners for broadcasting licenses. The legislation under considera tion does not specifically cover the newspapes-radio situation, but wit nesses have suggested that any new law should be specific in stipulating that the commission shall not de prive an applicant of a license solely because he publishes a newspaper. Should it develop that the com mission has this authority, Mr. Cald well told the committee, “It would be far more just to make it ap plicable simply to future instances rather than to have it retroactive.” Too Much Red Tape. Mr. Caldwell said he believed the present Communications Act has "certain defects which call for amendment,” and "certain aspects” of the commission's procedure "are unsound and not calculated to reach the best results * * • or to achieve justice to the parties and to the public " While in general the proposed new legislation "has several commendable features,” Mr. Caldwell said, “it goes too far in the direction of proce dural red tape and unnecessary ob stacles to the efficient and expedi tious administration of the act.” Kennedy Calls Roosevelt 'Friendly' to Bennett E» tpt AMOCitted Pre»*. Representative Kennedy, Demo crat, of New York and Tammany leader, talked with President Roose velt today and later described the Chief Executive as "very friendly” to John J. Bennett, Jr., New York State attorney general and potential ] Democratic gubernatorial nominee. Representative Kennedy said, how ! ever, that Mr. Roosevelt had made “no decision on any candidate yet” and neither had Tammany Hall. The Democratic nominee for Gov ernor will be picked at a State con vention in August. The legislator said Tammany leaders expected to sit down with other party leaders and discuss possible candidates. The Chief Executive discussed New York State politics Saturday with James A. Farley, former Postmaster General and former Democratic na tional chairman who is State chair man in New York, and Representa tive Kennedy said he and the Chief Executive discussed Mr. Farley's i visit. Asked whether Mr. Roosevelt saw eye to eye with Mr. Farley on the political situation, Repre sentative Kennedy replied: “He and Jim are very friendly.” He said he had not talked with i the Chief Executive about the status of the President's own member of Congress, Representative Fish, Re publican. Representative Fish was a frequent critic of the administra tion's foreign policy before the United States entered the war. Jimmy Dykes Fined $250 For 'Stalling' at Boston B' the Associated Press.

India's War Output To Be Stepped Up, President Told Grady, Back From Orient, Sees Foundations Laid For Big Increase Henry F. Grady, who reported to President Roosevelt today on results of a special American mission to assist In the develop ment of India as a production and supply center for the United Nations, said he believed that Indian war production could be increased to a degree that would make that front largely self sustaining for many types of munitions. Mr. Grady told reporters as he left the White House that the mis sion which he headed had laid the foundations for a large expansion of industrial activity, with the ex tent of such expansion depending on actual military requirements. Emphasizing that he considered the India-Burma-China front as ' one of the most important theaters of the war next to Russia. Mr i Grady said the aim was to develop ; India as a source of supply certain types of munitions for United Na tions forces in that area. U. S. te Send Machine Tools. He pointed out that production of \ such complicated weapons as war planes and tanks was not contem plated for India but that such things as rifles, shells, bodies for many kinds of motor equipment and other necessary tools of war could be pro duced in large quantities there with the help of equipment to be sent from the United States. He estimated that if recommen dations made by his mission were I carried out, Indian Droduction could ; make that front self-sustaining on this type of equipment within a year or so. The mission recommended that numerous types of equipment, par ticularly machine tools, be sent to ; India from this country on a lease : lend basis. It also made recom mendations for internal adjust ments within India to facilitate war production and relieve trans porta ; tkm congestion. Mission Very Successful. Mr. Grady said he felt the mis ; sion had been very successful and ; had had the fullest co-operation from the Indian government which has designated three members of the council to study the mission's preliminary report and take steps for implementing its recommenda tions. He pointed out that India has good mineral resources, including iron and coal for an efficient steel industry, as well as such 'Strategic materials as manganese and mica. Although the mission has con cluded the major portion of its i work, Mr. Grady said small organi zation was being set up here to maintain contact with Indian offi cials and that some experts prob ably would be sent to India to take up specific problems In carrying j out its recommendations. Women War Workers Stage Sit-Down Strike Ej the Associated Press. AKRON. Ohio, June 9—Three hundred women war workers at Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. went on a sit-down strike today, the | company reported. ! Twelve sewing machine operators, at work on rubber life-saving equip ; ment for the armed forces, started j the sit-down In protest against a , change from day work to piece work pay, officials said. The other women, on two shifts, stopped work in sympathy, they added. Wage scales were not given A Labor Department conciliator was expected to enter the con troversy A company announcement said the piece work schedule was posted under an agreement with the CIO United Rubber Workers which pro vides that such a schedule can be put into operation for 60 days, after which union and management de cide whether it is equitable.

Bills 'Continued From Fir^J Page.) j in the Senate they would be faced ! by the administration's anti-infla tion policy, including an effort to keep wages throughout the country from moving upward, except to cor rect inequalities in low brackets. He said bills pending in other com mittees to raise all Government salaries, either directly or through overtime, would present another complication. The police-fire pay bill has been estimated to cost about $800,000 a year. Already passed by the House, it would grant the $300 raise to all privates who have completed five years of service and officers up to and including captains. Men with less than five years of service would get gradual increases. $2,700 Maximum Provided. The present scale for both police men and firemen starts at $1,900 and increase $100 a year until the maxi mum of $2,400 is reached at the be ginning of the sixth year. The new scale would be: $2,000. $2,140, $2,280. $2,420. $2,560. and $2,700 at the beginning of the sixth year. The committee also approved a separate bill creating a ne$v grade of corporal in the police force and extending the probationary period of rookie patrolmen from one to three yeans. The other bills approved by the committee are: To exempt outside corporations from district business taxes, when the transactions are not completed in the District. It has passed the House. To authorize the Federal Govern ment to pay public school custo dians for extra work performed in connection with draft registrations since October. 1940. It has not passed the House.
