Scheduled to Testify Today on Labor Draft Warren Atherion, national com mander of the American Legion, was scheduled to appear before the Senate Military Affairs Committee today in support of national service legislation. In a radio address last night the Legion chief hailed the labor draft proposed by President Roosevelt as the "democratic way" toward full war mobilization. His views were sharply opposed on the same broadcast by Represent ative Short, Republican, of Missouri, who labeled the proposed legislation “the last step toward a totalitarian government.” Observing that the President had advocated such measures as a means of curbing strikes, Mr. Short de clared the Chief Executive “will not even enforce" the Antistrike Act. "What the country needs is not more legislation but some honest-to God administration,’ he added. "If strikes should be called off, the Pres ident can call them off. Simply be cause he has not done it, he now comes forth with an entire and ab surd proposition to conscript all Americans.” Mr. Atherton, on the other hand, argued that the civilian at home has the same duty to serve the Na tion, the job for w-hich he is best fitted, as the serviceman. "No right-thinking American can possibly question the rightness or fairness of this principle.” he saic. "The present system places an un fair share of these obligations on the men of the armed forces.” American Airlines Names Transatlantic Director By the Associated Press. BOSTON, Feb. 2.—Capt.

Halts Oil By the Associated Press. ; LONDON, Feb. 2.—The full im I port of Washington's action in halt i ing oil shipments to Spain was brought home to the Spanish peo ple today as all private automobiles and motorcycles were ordered off the streets at once to conserve fuel. Dispatches from Spain said the order had been published in all Spanish papers and had been broad cast. Gasoline* supplies for taxis also were reduced, and police began halting all traffic. Severe Restrictions. The Madrid advices emphasized that the gasoline restrictions were the most severe Spain had ever known, even during the period of the civil war. In issuing the travel ban, the Spanish fuel commissioner said he realized the sacrifice represented, but urged the public to "suffer it with a high spirit of patriotism.’’ Berlin broadcasts, meanwhile, dis missed as "cloakroom news" a Buenos Aires dispatch Monday quot ing a Latin American diplomat as saying that Spain would break rela tions with the Axis this week as the result of Allied pressure. Developments Expected. Diplomatic circles here, however, speculated that something might possibly be in the wind. This specula tion was intensified by the fact that j British Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden failed yesterday to make an expected statement on the Spanish situation in the House of Commons—j a development that might indicate a final decision of some sort still is pending. There was no immediate explana tion from Madrid for the return home of the Spanish Ambassadors to London and Berlin. A Reuters dis patch from Zurich said the Spanish Embassy in Berlin had been closed | temporarily due to damage suffered in recent British air raids and re ported that a number of Spanish consular officials were following the Ambassador home.

Even before the Americans an nounced successful landings in the Marshall Islands, Japanese news papers were preparing their readers for losses. A Berlin broadcast yesterday said Japanese papers referred to large scale attacks on the islands and quoted the newspaper Mainichi as saying an American victory "would be a regrettable loss for the Japa nese people.” "The mere fact that the enemy Is able to attack the Marshall Islands must not be taken too lightly,” Mainichi commented. Communications Disrupted. There was evidence that the pow er and fury of the American attack had disrupted communications be tween the island garrisons and the homeland. Another Tokio dispatch broadcast by Berlin, recorded by the Associated Press in New York, said Admiral Shigetaro Shimada. Navy minister, was questioned on the Marshalls situation in the Diet and replied: ciews irom me Marsnau islands is reaching us only slowly. Com munication with that region is not the best. Therefore, I cannot add anything to what has been pub lished yesterday." • The Tokio radio Monday said Japanese Army and Navy units had intercepted American attack ing forces and fierce fighting was in progress.! Mainichi, published in Osaka and one of Japan's most influential newspapers, compared the Marshalls invasion to another great crisis in Japan’s history, the attempt of the Mongol Emperor of China, Kublai Khan, to invade the Japanese home land in 1281. At that time a typhoon which wrecked many of the in vaders' ships helped the Japanese repel the attack. Mainichi said: Direct Link to Homeland. "The Japanese homeland is di rectly linked up with these man dated islands, which form the outer front line of the Japanese Empire. The fact that they are 2.500 kilometers from Tokio makes no difference. The enemy must be beaten back, even at the greatest sacrifice. "On only three occasions has the sacred soil of Japan been desecrated by enemy feet.

Seriousness Cited. “Occupation of a defended point by superior enemy powers cannot always be prevented, but everything must be done to make sure that this enemy occupation is temporary.” Ashai, powerful Tokio newspaper, was quoted as saying: “A seerious attack against the Marshall Islands had to be reck oned with since last November, when the enemy began to show that he was interested in this group of isles.
