FCC Records Faked
To Shield Absentee,
House Witness Says
By the Associated Pres*.
Miss Olive Amelia Merrill, luka.
Miss., former Federal Communica
tions Commission employe, told a
House committee yesterday she was
required by a supervisor to falsify
personnel records to ‘‘cover up" for
a fellow worker who was in a hos
pital for several weeks last year.
Miss Merrill, testifying before the
Lea Committee, which is inquiring
into the FCC, said the records were
changed at the insistence of Chester
A. Teitgen, who now is in the Army.
Changes were made in the records
to show that Lula Martin Adderley
was at work when she was actually
in a hospital, Miss Merrill testified,
adding that fellow workers, at Mr.
Teitgen's request, worked on their
off days for the absentee.
She said production records of
Katie Hoffman also were changed
to show that she was a good typist
when, the witness asserted, she “just
wrote letters or read stories.”
Asked by Committee Cotinsel
Eugene L. Garey why that was done
Miss Merrill said it was because Mr.
Teitgen said he liked Miss Hoffman.
The witness testified she left FCC
employ voluntarily, by transfer to
another agency, and had enlisted in
the WACS, with which she will soon
go on active duty.
Unwarranted Optimism
Protested by Churchill
Es the Associated Press.
LONDON, Feb. 2.—Prime Minister
Churchill, in a letter to a govern
ment candidate for Commons made
public yesterday, said he found many
persons charged with unwarranted
optimism and commented on the
“vain and foolish belief that the war
will soon be over.”
“There is a vain and foolish belief
that the war will soon be over, that
it is now as good as won and that
any one is free to push personal or
party ends without regard to the
common interest,” the Prime Min
ister said.
His letter was prompted by a
political squabble in Brighton,
where he accused the independent
candidate of deception in an attempt
to gain votes by labeling himself a
government supporter.
General Labor Conscription
Ordered in France
By the Associated Press.
LONDON, Feb. 2.—The German
masters of France have ordered a
general labor conscription as well
as a speed-up civilian evacuation of
the French Mediterranean coast, the
Vichy radio said yesterday. These
measures were presumed to be in
preparation for an expected Allied
invasion.
Conscription of all Frenchmen be
tween 16 and 60 and all childless
Frenchwomen from 18 to 45 was
announced by Philippe Henriot,
Vichy's new propaganda minister.
He implied that the conscripts
might be sent to Germany, saying,
“Germany is carrying on a total war
and is defending our frontiers as
well as hers.” He threatened severe
punishment for any one who tried
to evade the obligatory labor service.
Jap Cities Partly Cleared
As Air-Raid Precaution

NEW YORK, Feb. 2.—The Jap
anese radio at Batavia said today
partial evacuation of certain areas
in the Japanese cities of Kyoto and
Yokosuka had been ordered by the

A
Vital link with the important
island, PUERTO RICO
J. -t - C P »
... thousands of travelers, millions of dollars
worth of cargo—move to and from Puerto
Rico in peacetime years—in AGWI SHIPS
The fame of Puerto Rico as a tropical playground for northern
holiday-makers has spread far and wide, but hardly less known
perhaps is this beautiful isle's great commercial importance.
In normal times before the war, Puerto Rico's spacious San Juan
harbor was a busy, bustling port. A steady flow of sugar sacks
and tobacco hales poured into the holds of cargo ships. Crate
upon crate of pineapples, grapefruit, and coconuts were loaded.
Any day docks might be seen piled high with cases of embroi
dered handkerchiefs — and other dainty handwork in which
Puerto Ricans excel.
In exchange for all this, ships from the States brought down
manufactured goods of all kinds as well as the refrigerated and
processed foods so necessary to the island's economy. In the
last peacetime year alone this export-import business reached
$187,000,000!
Today warships and planes on war missions are the chief visitors
to Puerto Rico, now a vital Caribbean base. Cargo and passenger
6teamers are busy on war duty. But when ships can be released
ft
for trade, the gr6at gteamship organizations, developed through
many years of shipping to “the islands,*’ will be ready. Their
modern docks, warehouse facilities, and shore personnel—experi
enced in the intricate handling of Puerto Rican trade—will swing
into service again!
★ ★ ★
For over 50 years the PORTO RICO LINE has been a vital link
with our important island of Puerto Rico, and the nearby Do
minican Republic—good neighbor on whose land Columbus made
his first landfall in the New World, There'll be a chorus of
friendly “Viva Vapores!'' when these familiar ships steam back
into the harbors of San Juan and Trujillo City, ready to take up
their normal cargo and passenger service between the islands and
our own Atlantic ports.
