EVANSTON. 111., June 16—Secre tary of Commerce Jones predicted today that when the war is ended and won. "our national income will be well above 100 billion dollars a year.” He warned, however, that "the war may last much longer than any of us hope. Certainly there is no early end in sight.” The Secretary, in a speech at the dedication of Northwestern Univer sity's new $5,000,000 Technological Institute, said that the longer the war lasts the greater will be the dis locations in our normal life and economy which the Nation must guard against. Secretary Jones was awarded the honorary degree of doctor of law-s. Scientists participating in dedi cation of the institute said Ameri can research not only would help j win the war. but also would take a ! leading part in rebuilding the world i afterward. On the side of war Karl T. Comp ton, president of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, reported the Government Office of Scientific Re search and Development had en tered into 663 contracts with edu cational institutions for the per formance of war work. “These jobs,” he said, “include those of the very highest urgency and priority and some of them have already shown promise of becoming important factors in the forthcom ing military decision.” Dr. Compton predicted engineer- \ ing education would continue to | cover more and more new fields of I application in the future and that! its techniques, as well as its subject: matter, would grow continually. Single U. S. Firm to Produce At 4 Billion Rate by Year's End A single American corporation will be producing war equipment by the end of 1942 at the rate of J4.000.000.000 worth a year—roughly equivalent to building a Panama Canal every six weeks—if it achieves its program. Oliver Lyttelton. Brit ish minister of production, disclosed here late today. Mr. Lyttelton cited this as an ex ample of American production prog ress after he and Harry Hopkins, chairman of the American section of the Munitions Assignment Board, had discussed problems involved in joint British-American production in a conference with President Roosevelt. Mr. Hopkins interjected that the figure for the single corporation. Which was not identified, would •mount to about one-tenth of the entire national income at the bot tom of the depression. Mr, Lyttleton said all estimates of American production probably would be beaten as the process of retooling of factories to make war equipment is completed, remarking that American manufacturers were inclined to give themselves "plenty : of elbow room" in estimating pro- 1 duction capacities.

Battleships Give Way to Carriers In 8i'Billion Bill House Naval Group Backs Plan to Double Size of Fleet Pv IN Associated Press. A vast $8,550,000,000 ship con struction program was approved today by the House Naval Af fairs Committee, and Chairman Vinson disclosed that work had been deferred temporarily on "four or five battleships in order to concentrate on carriers.” He emphasized that the Nation had not suspended or abandoned the battleship building program, but declared that events of the war had demonstrated conclusively that the aircraft carrier “is the back bone of the fleet.” He said this country would need battleships “as long as any other nation has them," and stressed the point that there has only been a “deferment on four or five” of the huge batleships once regarded as the monarchs of the sea. Aimed at Doubling Fleet. The new bill, designed ultimately to double the size of the fleet, pro vides for building 500.000 tons of carriers, along with 500.000 tons of cruisers and 900,000 tons of destroy ers and destroyer escort vessels "to throw up a protecting shield around the floating aerial striking strength. The measure, demonstrating the Navy's increasing emphasis on plane carriers, will provide for more than 1,400 ships of all types, in cluding more than 400 combatant craft in the carrier-cruiser-destroyer category. Chairman Vinson said construc tion of the carriers would be started this year and the rest of the big boat program next year. He said the keels for the carriers would be laid “immediately.” Cruisers to Be Converted. Earlier, two members of the Sen ate Naval Affairs Committee said that Navy officials had decided to defer all plans for huge new battle ships in order to concentrate on ex panding fighting power in the air. Senators Ellender. Democrat, of Louisiana, and Brewster, Repub lican, of Maine, in separate inter views said top-ranking admirals had informed them that no new battle ships would be started and that plans for cruisers now underway were being converted so that these would be completed as aircraft carriers. “The Navy finally has decided it must have more airpower to protect our present fleet,’ Senator Ellender said. "Some of the cruisers being converted were pretty well along.’’ Plans for Big Ships Dropped. Senator Brewster said the new decision would mean abandonment for the present of Navy plans for constructing five huge super battle ships of 60.000 tons each “that were to have been the largest things afloat.” Senator Brewster said naval au thorities had been working on the plans for the huge battleships— larger than any previously built— for more than a year and probably had learned that *some of our enemies had abandoned plans for similar huge battleships.” The Maine Senator said the new decision would not interfere with completion and commissioning of several battleships that would be launched within the next few months. “I believe this involves a turning point in naval concepts of battle ships that has been debated since 1938 and before." Senator Brewster said. "Within the last few months the admirals have been getting more and more concerned,” Late Races • Earlier Results, Selections and Entries for Tomorrow, Page 2-X.

The House completed legisla tive action today on a bill pro viding for financial aid to de j pendents of servicemen through deductions from Army and Navy pay cheeks and supplementary i allowances from the Govern ment. As sent to the White House, the I compromise legislation also con tained a provision giving Selective Service authorities power to defer from the draft married men on the basis of their family relationship regardless of actual financial de pendency. Chairman May of the Military Affairs Committee told the House this provision was intended to em phasize the congressional policy j “not to break up the institution of the home.” Pinal congressional action was House adoption of a conference compromise. Mr. May told the House that Selective Service officials have pre pared a directive ordering local draft boards to reelassify all mar ried men who have dependents and that under the new program the last man to be taken into the armed forces through induction would be married men with large families maintaining bona fide homes.

Y., June 16.—A Federal grand jury today in dicted four Albany men on a charge of illegally collecting more than $50,000 from workers , at the War Department's new receiving and reconsignment station at nearby Voorheesvilie. The nine-page, four-count in dictment charged the quartet with conspiracy to violate the so-called Federal •'kick-back” statute prohib- ■ iting inducement of persons em ployed on Dublic buildings or public works to repay part of their com pensation by intimidation, threat of dismissal or other means. The men included a,business agent j of Local 106. International Union of | Operating Engineers; his son. a city j employe: a vice president, financial I secretary and assistant business agent of the union, and a union steward. Only the latter was em ployed on the project. Thomas C. Clarfc, chief of the Jus tice Department's war frauds unit, emphasized the practice was in "di rect violation of the constitution of the international and was ordered stopped by international officers.” The indictment, containing spe cific instances in which the men allegedly received collections rang ing from six to 12 dollars, covered a six-month period ending last February. In Washington Attorney General Biddle said that this was just the first of such actions and that the Justice Department "intends to crack down on "dollar patriots" wherever it may find them.” "This particular case,” Mr. Biddle said, "should not be construed, how ever, as an indictment of labor. It should be noted that the interna tional union denounced the prac tices charged in the indictment and demanded that these defendants cease the ‘permit card’ system of employment." Evidence in a District war fraud case in the District will be presented to the Federal grand jury here next week. Tom C. Clark, chief of the Justice Department War Frauds Unit, announced today. Other war fraud caases will be laid before Fed eral grand juries next we^k in Vir ginia and in Los Angeles.

Henderson Suspends Gas Deliveries for Ration Violations 14 Stations in New York And Philadelphia Hit; 175 More Face Penalty Bj tbc Associated Press. Price Administrator Leon Hen- i derson suspended gasoline deliv eries to eight filling stations in New York City and six in Phila- i delphia today on grounds of "flagrant violation” of gasoline rationing regulations. The suspensions range from 15 to 30 days, and OPA announced then ! they "will be followed shortly by' others from a total of 175 "ports of violations that were ’_.iCOvered 10 days ago” in snot checks made by 2.000 investigators in New York, Philadelphia and Newark. N. J. Simultaneously. Mr. Henderson declared that filling station opera tors "who sell without regard to the rationing regulations are work ing against the welfare of their own country and aiding the enemy.” Public hearings preceded issuance of the suspension orders, each of which cited the dealers with having sold gasoline without requiring a ration card of the motorist and without canceling ration units on the card. Each of the 14 dealers, OPA said, admitted the charge. OPA said the 2.000 checkers, each instructed to drive into a filling station or garage and say: “I haven't my rationing card with me and I want three gallons of gaso line,” visited several thousand re tailers. In each of the 175 cases turned in for further investigation, OPA sum moned the operator to a hearing and furnished him with a state \ ment of the exact charge against him. “It's not smart to chisel,” Mr. Henderson commented.

Mr. Guthrie resigned as chief of the textile, clothing and leather goods branch of the War Production Board, giving as his reasons, the subcommittee said. •‘Lack of co operation. insubordination and the unwillingness of some dollar-a-year men to divorce their private inter ests from the public welfare.” Served Government Interest. While finding there was ”a sharp and divided conflict of opinion be tween Mr. Guthrie” and some of his associates, the group headed by Representative Faddis. Democrat, of ; Pennsylvania said, "There is lack of proof that this was significant of anything other than strong convic tions on the part of those whose duty it was to offer technical ad vice. together with a lack of proof that they intended to serve any in terest other- than that of the Gov ernment. “It is not possible to depend 1 solely upon Government career men and college professors without prac tical experience in industry at so serious a time as this,” the sub committee commented, "without the I assistance of those experienced in the world of business, and without i the specialized knowledge of execu I tives and technicians of a high I caliber.” Gave Valuable Service. In most instances, the subcom mittee, said. “Men drawn from in | dustry, whether as dollar-a-year i men or compensated for their serv | ices, have rendered valuable, sin ! cere and conscientious service to f the war effort * * • it cannot ex 1 pect that such men should sever 1 all connections with the business ! world, nor should they be subjected i to criticism or suspicion solely be- 1 j cause of existing or former in- I i dustry connections.” The committee said it was ‘‘im pressed with the sincerity of Mr. Guthrie" and was sympathetic with his views in regard to conservation of strategic and necessary materials, but felt that “the question of col lateral consequences surrounding conservation and conversion were for the most part disregarded by Mr. Guthrie.” French, Nazi Dye Trusts Set Up Joint Company !

Two Battleships Are Set Afire, Cruiser Sunk Axis Claims of Heavy Damage Branded As 'Fantastic' (Earlier Story on Page A-l.) Bj the Associated Press. The United States Army Air Force, in action for the first time alongside the RAF in the Central and Eastern Mediterranean, was credited officially today with a part in a smashing air and sea assault in which two Italian bat tleships were set afire, a 10,000 ton cruiser was sunk and a smaller cruiser and destroyer were damaged. Simultaneously, the British Ad miralty and Air Ministry announced that new supplies had been success fully delivered to the garrisons at Malta and Tobruk. The communique acknowledged the convoy suffered some loss, but said "fantastic enemy claims” of losses inflicted on the convoy and escorting craft were "without any foundation.” The Germans had claimed 31 ships sunk or damaged, the Italians 20 The Admiralty also said two de stroyers were sunk, apparently in addition to vessels previously re ported damaged. Two Italian Formations Attacked. The RAF announcement in a spe cial communique from Cairo that American flyers had been in the Mediterranean fight for the last four days began to bring into focus the picture of the thundering sea-air fight in the straits between Italy and Africa which the Axis previously had sought to pass off as their own success. Two strong Italian naval forma tions were attacked, the RAF said. The joint statement, issued in London by the Admiralty and Air Ministry, said: "The Royal Navy and Merchant Navy, with the co-operation of the Royal Air Force and the United States Army Air Corps, delivered supplies to the garrisons at Malta and Tobruk. ‘The operations have been car ried through in the face of very heavy attacks by superior enemy naval forces and air forces, and were not completed without loss. Enemy Claims “Fantastic.” “Fantastic enemy claims to have sunk cruisers and to have damaged battleships and an aircraft carrier are without foundation. “Loss and damage also has been inflicted upon the enemy by his majesty's ships, naval aircraft, the Royal Air Force and the United States Army Air Corps. “One 10.000-ton 8-inch gun cruiser of the Trento class has been sunk, and at least two destroyers have been sunk, and heavy losses have been imposed upon enemy air forces. "Throughout June 13, 14 and 15 our naval forces were covered by our fighters and many bombing attacks were intercepted. Heavy fighting took place. “On one occasion a raid by 40 Junkers-87's and Junkers-88's es corted by more than 20 Messer schmitt-109's was intercepted. The enemy was compelled to jettison its bombs far from our ships and it is known that considerable losses were inflicted on the enemy but full de tails are not yet available.” Favorites Win Matches In District Women's Golf Favorites won their matches in the District Women's Golf Cham pionship today at the Chew Chase Club as Mrs. Walter R.
