Supreme Court Hears
Insurance Antitrust Case Arguments By th» Associated Press. The question whether insurance companies are subject to prosecu tion under the Sherman Antitrust Act or the National Labor Relations Act was argued before the Supreme Court today. Legislation is pending in Congress to exempt insurance companies from the Federal Antitrust Act and to leave their regulation to the States. Thirty-five States have filed briefs with the high court asserting that Federal regulation would destroy “the sovereignty of the States” and would substitute a ‘‘chaotic condi tion for the present effective method of State regulation and supervision.” United States Appealed Ruling. Whether insurance companies are subject to the Sherman Act was involved in an appeal by the Justice Department from a decision by the Federal District Court at Atlanta dismissing antitrust charges against 198 Southeastern stock fire insurance companies. The lower court said the Supreme Court had ruled for 75 years that the business of insurance was not commerce and hence the companies were not subject to the Sherman Act, which prohibits combinations or conspiracies in restraint of inter state commerce. Attorney General Biddle, who in this case is stepping in as Govern ment spokesman, contended in his brief that “the Nation-wide scope and the tremendous magnitude of the insurance industry demonstrate that it falls within the limits of the Federal commerce power.” Polish Company Involved. Applicability of the Labor Rela tions Act to insurance companies was Involved in an anpeal by the Polish National Alliance of the United States of North America, which described itself as a fraternal benefit society located at Chicago. It challenged a Labor Board order directing it to bargain collectively with the Office Employes’ Union, affiliated with the American Feder ation of Labor, and to offer rein statement to 27 striking employes. The NLRB order was upheld by the Federal Circuit Court at Chi cago. which ruled that the society was engaged in commerce. Formal Statement By Willkie Due Soon th* Associated Press. CHICAGO, Jan. 11— Reports cir- j eulated among supporters of Wendell L. Willkie last night that the 1940 Republican presidential nominee will formally announce his candidacy for the 1944 nomination within the next two weeks and open campaign headquarters in New York. Ralph H. Cake. Oregon National Commit tee member, is expected to be in charge of the headquarters and to manage the Willkie preconvention campaign. Others connected with the Willkie forces at the meetings of the Re publican National Committee who are expected to be associated in some way or other with the pre convention setup are Fred Baker, national committeeman for Wash ington State; Sinclair Weeks, Massa chusetts member, and several others. Mr. Willkie has until February 14 to take a formal stand if his name is to be entered in the first presi dential delegate picking by pri mary—March 14 in New Hampshire. There have been reports that Mr. Willkie might head a third-partv ticket if he failed to win the Re publican nomination, but his sup porters here will not discuss these report*. Ciano i Continued From First Page.t Verona, in Northern Italy, where DNB said the trial took place. Ciano, 40-vear-old son of Admiral Count Costanzo Ciano. held obscure posts in the Italian diplomatic serv ice until his marriage to Edda Mus solini. Afterward he rose to the rank of Foreign Minister and reput edly became one of the wealthiest men in Italy. His last post in his father-in-law's government was as Ambassador to the Vatican. Sentences Imposed Yesterday. DNB said the death sentences were imposed yesterday and had been carried out shortly after 9 o'clock this morning. Only contradictory and confusing reports of the trial reached the Bwiss-Italian frontier. Corriere del Ticino of Lugano said the trial in Castel Vecchio actually was a mockery held in secret and attended by only a few' triisted fol lowers of Mussolini. The newspa pers said it had been rumored that Mussolini was supposed to attend and accuse Ciano and De Bono. It was learned definitely, how ever. that Mussolini was unable to leave his villa on Lake Garda, where his heilth is steadily declin ing despite the attention of special ists. There was no indication that Mussolini’s daughter, Edda, tried to save her husband. Another report said Ciano was shot while attempting to escape but this w>as generally discredited. Border reports on December 6 said that Ciano had been executed, shot in the back by a firing squad. The Germans denied this and subse quently announced the treason trials. Mrs. Dora S.

I-_____-------1 Soviet Declaration Text of Statement Concerning Views on Polish Borders Bt the Associated Press. LONDON, Jan. 11.—The text of a declaration by the Soviet, government, at transmitted in a Tass News Agency broadcast from Moscow recorded by the Soviet monitor: Tass is authorized by the Soviet government to state the following: On January 5, in London, a decla ration of the emigre Polish govern ment- was published on the question of Soviet-Polish relations in which there were a number of incorrect as sertions. including an assertion on the Soviet-Polish border. As is known, the Soviet constitu tion established the Soviet-Polish border in accordance with the will of the population of the Western Ukraine and Western Byelo-Russia (White Russiai as expressed in a plebiscite which was carried out on a wide democratic basis in 1939. This territory of the Western Ukraine, populated by an over whelming majority of Ukrainians, entered the structure of the Soviet Ukraine: and the territory of West ern Byelo-Russia, populated by an overwhelming majority of Byelo Russians, entered the structure of Soviet Byelo-Russia. The injustice permitted by the Riga agreement in 1921 which was forced upon the Soviet Union in relation to the Ukrainians who lived in the Western Ukraine and the Bvelo-Russians who lived in Western Byelo-Russia, was in this way corrected. Basis for Friendship, j The inclusion of the Western (Ukraine and Western Byelo-Russia jin the structure of the Soviet Union j not only did not violate the interests of Poland, but on the contrary created a reliable basis for a solid, permanent friendship between the Polish people and their neighboring Ukrainian, Byelo-Russian and Rus sion peoples. The Soviet government constantly has declared that it stands for the creation of a strong, independent Poland and for friendship between the Soviet Union and Poland. The Soviet government once again declares it is striving toward the establishment of friendship between the Soviet and Poland on the basis of solid, good neighborly relations and mutual respect and—if the Polish people desire it—on the basis of mutual assistance against the Germans as the main enemies of the Soviet Union and Poland. The realization of this task could be served by the incorporation of Po land to the Soviet-Czechoslovak agreement on friendship and mutual assistance and postwar collabora tion. Success of Soviet troops on the Soviet-German front with every day hastens the liberation of occupied territories of the Soviet Union from the German invaders. The self-sacrificing struggle of the Red Army and the developing mili tary operations of our Allies bring ; nearer the rout of the Hitlerite war !machine and the liberation of Po land and other people from the yoke of the German invaders. Regeneration of Poland. In this liberation struggle the "Polish patriots in the U. S. S. R. and the Polish Army Corps formed by them, which is operating at the front against the Germans, are al ready carrying out their glorious part, hand in hand with the Red ' Army.” There opens up at present the possibility of the regeneration of j Poland as a strong and independent state, but Poland must be regener ated not by means of seizing Ukrain ian and Byelo-Russian lands, but by means‘of returning to the struc-i ture of Poland the primordial Polish land taken by the Germans from Poland. Only in this way would it i be possible to establish confidence and friendship between the Polish, j Ukrainian, Byelo-Russian and Rus sian peoples. Poland's eastern borders could be 'established by agreement with the Soviet Uniop. The Soviet govern ment does not regard 1939 borders as unchangeable. In these borders corrections can be included to the; ; advantage of Poland in that direc 1 tion in order that districts in which there is an overwhelming Polish, population were handed over to Poland. In this case the Soviet Polish border could pass approx imately along the so-called Curzon line, which was accepted in 1919 by ! the Supreme Council of the Allied powers and which provided for in-! elusion of the Western Ukraine and Western Byelo-Russia in the struc ture of the Soviet Union. Extension of Borders. Poland’s western borders must be extended by means of incorporating in Poland the primordial Polish lands previously taken away by Germany, without which the whole Polish people cannot be united in its state, which will receive by this means a necessary outlet to the Baltic Sea. The justifiable striving of the Polish people toward their complete unification in a strong and in dependent state must receive recog nition and support. The emigre Polish government, j cut off from its people, has shown: itself incapable of establishing friendly relation* with the Soviet Union. It also has shown itself incapable of organizing an active struggle against the German in vaders in Poland itself. More than that, by it* incorrect policy it often plays into the hands of the German invaders. Meanwhile, the interest of Poland and the Soviet Union includes the fact that be tween our countries there should be established solid, friendly relations and that the people of Poland and the Soviet Union be united in the struggle against the common foreign enemy, as is demanded by the com mon cause of all the Allies Servicemen (Continued From First Page.t Navy Departments in time of war j unless it is uniform and as simple! as possible," the report continued,! "Especially is this true with regard | to the voting of persons outside the! United States.” One absentee State ballot, plus envelopes and instructions, averag ing 3 ounces, “would by its size and weight displace over a thousand V-mail letters in microfilm,” the vVar Department pointed out. "If this displacement were multiplied several million times, in two sepa rate air carriages, over a period of several weeks or months, the most important of all morale factors would be dangerously prejudiced.” Chairman May of the Military Af fairs Committee predicted that Iris group would report out today a mustering-out pay bill. The Sen ate passed the bill before Christ mas, with payments ranging from $200 to $500, depending on length of service and time overseas. Meanwhile, Chairman Rankin called together his World War Vet erans’ Committee to hear Warren Atherton, national commander of the American Legion, discuss the Legion’s views on veterans’ benefits. Mr. Rankin introduced yesterday an omnibus bill embodying the Legion program. Omits Pay Feature. The Rankin bill omitted muster ing-out pay, thus avoiding conflict of jurisdiction with the Military Af fairs Committee. Senator Lucas, Democrat, of Il linois will go before a Senate com mittee at 10:30 am. tomorrow in an effort to revive the defeated, simplified Federal ballot, but with a stipulation that local precinct of ficials shall pass on the validity of the ballots after they are received. Meeting Called. Meanwhile, two House members— Representatives Bradley, Democrat, of Pennsylvania and Bender. Repub lican, of Ohio—joined in declaring soldier-voting a nonpartisan issue, and ealled an unofficial meeting of veterans’ and other organisations to give impetus to the drive for an ef fective servicemen’s ballot law. "It should be obvious to all of us that the soldiers are not going to be able to vote if the present hap hazard absentee voting systems pre vail—that is if there are 48 different and separate methods of polling our armed forces’, they said. Representative Sasscer, Democrat, of Maryland, meanwhile, introduced a bill to provide temporary compen sation to disabled veterans pending their medical discharge. The pay ments would be designed to tide them over the period their perma nent disability ratings are being determined by Veterans Adminis tration. Still another veteran proposal—to give educational allowances to boys who want to return to school after the war—will be taken up before the end of the week in a subcommittee of the Senate Education and Labor Committee. Chairman Thomas is proposing »50 a month for single men while in school. Married men would get an additional *25 for a wife and $10 for each dependent child.

Strength of Air Force At Peak, Replacement Training Is Begun By the Associated Presa. The Army Air Forces has reached the peak of its unit strength and is gradually shift ing to a replacement training basis. That explanation was supplied to day for the closing of 69 air bases throughout the country, a figure es timated by the Air Forces to repre sent between 5 and 7 per cent of all AAF installations in the United States. New units will be organized as the war progresses, but for the most, part they will be replacement organiza tions. The number of installations placed on a "stand-by” basis, with only cus todial employes to keep them in re pair for use if needed, was disclosed yesterday by Senate Minority Lead er McNary, who said he was told by the War Department that several fields being closed by the Air Forces in the Pacific Northwest were among the 69. Closing the air fields was the lat est of a series of steps cutting back Air Forces training activities as the1 expansion rogram leveled off. For several months the Air Forces has omitted to renew expiring con tracts with privately operated schools for training radio operators, mechanics and other technicians. More recently, scores of hotels leased for school purposes have been re turned to their owners. The department predicted such steps as closing the air bases in a recent report on production shifts related to the switch from defensive combat operations—"readjustments are being made in the number of installations and facilities needed for Army training purposes.” “Many of the changes having a far-reaching effect, on the war pro duction structure are the direct re sult of all-out attack rather than defensive warfare,” the department said. “Other revisions clearly indicate that the tremendous job of provid ing original equipment for the Army has been successfully concluded with future procurement leveling to a replacement basis." 75 D.

Jan. 11.—Allied heavy bombers, mediums and fighters swept across the English Channel today in a renewal of the daylight offensive against Europe a few hours after RAF Mosquitoes attacked Ber lin and Western Germany during darkness. The Berlin radio declared that “strong formations of four-engined American bombers" attacked locali ties in Central Germany around noon and claimed "heavy losses” were Inflicted by Nazi defenders. There was no Immediate Allied confirmation that American "heav ies" had gone out in force, but observers on the English coast de clared heavy bombers were Included in the formations flying across the Channel. American daylight heavy bombers had been grounded since Friday when they carried out a heavy at tack on a target in southwestern Germany which neutral reports identified as Ludwigshafen, home of large German chemical works. No Mosquitos Lost. The Mosquitoes’ attack last, night was their ninth foray of the year and it was executed without loss. Save for Berlin, other night targets were not specified. British fighters also were busy over the continent last night on in truder patrols, the Air Ministry said, shooting down one German plane during these operations. One British plane failed to return. Only light aerial activity was re ported over the continent yesterday, small formations of Typhoons and Mosquitos co-operating in attacks on the coastal area of Northern France.

Meanwhile, the German-controlled Vichy radio declared that prefects of the French Channel coast, depart ments had met yesterday in Paris to discuss possible evacuation of those areas, which recently have been sub jected to heavy air attacks. The broadcast said evacuation of country districts of the Somme De partment already had been ordered. A Paris radio broadcast declared four American four-engined bomb ers were downed in Northern France during attacks yesterday, but there was no United States Air Force an nouncement of any operations. The consistent Mosquito raids by night have set off sirens in dozens of jittery German cities, and last night marked the third time they have penetrated this year to the shattered Nazi capital.

It carries its own electric plant and needs only gasoline to operate. The checkered pattern is camouflage in reverse so that pilots will see the vehicle and not run into it. The mobile tower was designed for use on new fields at the war fronts. The man with the microphone in the glass inclosure carries on the now familiar patter with incoming pilots—“Over to you.

War plants in possibly 80 met ropolitan aeras will get employ ment "ceilings” beyond which they may not go, under a new program of manpower rationing announced by the War Man power Commission today. Chairman Paul V. McNutt aaid WMC has reached an agreement with the Army, Navy, Maritime Commission and War Production Board, whereby those agencies will co-operate to budget the labor sup ply in each area where a relatively few plants—perhaps three, two or even one—dominate the field. WMC officials, estimating these areas number around 80. said Dal las. Tex., is an example of what can be done. Dallas was classified as an acute labor shortage area entirely because of the estimated manpower needs of the North American Avia tion plant there. When it was determined that the plant needed 10.000 fewer workers than estimated, Dallas was taken off the •'acute" list. The new program, an outgrowth of the Dallas experience, is also an expansion of the labor "budgeting” principle in effect on the West Coast and elsewhere. It does not apply in the 17 areas where an ’area manpower priority commit tee'' has already been established to allocate available labor to essential plants "The WMC can and will supply the manpower actually needed in war plants." Mr. McNutt said. "It does not propose, however, to permit the wasteful use of one worker.” The WMC announced that phy sicians. dentists, veterinarians, san itary engineers and nurses who are salaried employes in essential ac tivities may not change their jobs hereafter without permission of the United States Employment Service.

NEW YORK, Jan. 11.—Chair man Truman of the Senate War Investigating Committee said today $8,000,000,000 in Army and Navy contracts have been can celed to date and declared the time is coming when some com munities will find themselves with “a serious unemployment problem.” “The manpower problem, although paramount today, 1* nearing its peak,” the Senator told the National Retail Dry Goods Association’s war time conference here. “Without attempting to prophesy the time when the war will end, I can tell you that the production of war materiel in some items has been so great that about $6,000,000,000 of Army contracts and about *2.000. 000.000 of Navy contracts have had to be canceled. Only the Beginning. “This is only the beginning of such cancellations, and almost daily dur ing the coming year you will sea newspaper notices of contract can cellations. of plant shut-downs, of elimination of graveyard shifts and of reduction in employes. “Although the manpower problem will continue as a serious one for the Nation as a whole, many com munities will find that in their area they have a manpower surplus. In some communities, there will even be a serious unemployment problem. “This makes It very important that sound action be taken now to provide for increased production of civilian articles.” Warns of Overstocking. The Senator told the retailers care must be tRken to maintain adequate stocks while, at he same time, avoid ing the risk of building wartime stock excesses that will carry into peacetime. "In some cases where strategic materials and metals were formerly used,” he said, "the merchandise you are buying r.ow is made of substitutes which the public only accepts be cause there is no alternative.
