Rankin Assails Field
For Party Given Here For Press Club Heads My the Associated Press. A Republican complained to the House yesterday that a calendar dis tributed by the Government desig nates all the national holidays ex cept Lincoln's Birthday. Representative Gross, Republican, of Pennsylvania proposed an inquiry to find out why. Thereupon, Representative Bul winkle, Democrat, of North Carolina interposed: "Mr. Speaker, I read all those Lin coln Day speeches and I observe that the Republicans are engaged in two battles—one against Mr. Roosevelt and the other against Mr. Willkie. I can understand them fighting Roosevelt, but, after all the glowing things they said about their 1940 presidential candidate, X can’t un derstand why they treat Willkie that way.” Not Designated by Congress. Mr. Bulwinkle, a member of the House Printing Committee, ex plained later that the calendar des ignates only national holidays pro vided by act of Congress, and that Congress has not so designated Lin coln's birthday. The holidays des ignated are Washington's Birthday, New Year Day, July 4, Labor Day and Thanksgiving. The calendars, bearing a picture of the Capitol, are produced in the Government Printing Office and the distribution is to House members only, each getting seven, Mr. Bul winkle said. Representative Rankin, Democrat, of Mississippi joined the House dis cussion to remark: "Mr. Speaker, in reply to both gentlemen who have just' spoken, let me call attention to the fact that the nearest thing to a Dese cration of Lincoln’s Birthday that I know of was a party thrown by Marshall Field the 3d, the playboy millionaire from Chicago, here in Washington on Sunday last. ruts Cost at $7,500. "I am told that he threw a party at the Statler Hotel that wbuld make Belshazzar's feast look like a Chinese soup kitchen. They had everything from cocktails to caviar. 1 understand that he spent more than $7,500 on that wasteful rev elry, at a time when every American is being called on to save and buy bonds in order to fight this war.” Mr. Rankin referred to a recep tion given by Bascom N. Timmons, head of the Washington bureau of the Chicago Sun, for Sam O'Neal, newly elected president of the Na tional Press Club, and Charles O. Gridley, newly elected president of the Gridiron Club. Mr. O'Neal and Mr. Gridley are correspondents of the Chicago Sun, owned by Mr. Field. Neither Mr. Field nor Mr. Tim mons had any comment on Mr. Rankin's remarks. LOST.

Meeting Is Called By Senators to Map Oil Inquiry Plans Faced by a dwindling oil supply in the United States and various adVninistration projects to supple ment it abroad, the Senate Com merce Committee met today to con sider plans for a full investigation of the petroleum problem. Before the committee is a resolu tion introduced by Senators Brew ster. Republican, of Maine and Moore. Republican, of Oklahoma to establish an eight-man group-rep 1 resenting four Senate committees to investigate the whole oil question. I Senate committees from which t lie inquiry panel would be chosen are Commerce. Interstate Commerce, Foreign Relations and Public Lands. Would Study Three Factors. Chief factors in the oil problem which would be looked into by the new committee, if established, are: 1. A proposed $165,000,000 Gov ernment -financed pipeline to con nect rich oil fields around the Per ; sian Gulf with the Mediterranean area. 2. A synthetic motor fuel experi ment program, costing $30,000,000 and authorized yesterday in the House by a 143-to-13 vote, to be! carried out by the Bureau of Mines.! 3. A report of the Truman Com-1 mittee, issued yesterday, which calls' for establishment of a clear-cut j American policy toward the acquisi-t tion of foreign oil reserves and; compensation for the large amount of United States domestic oil used in the United Nations' war effort. i Broader Inquiry Favored. The special S#nate committee would succeed a Senate Interstate Commerce subcommittee which had scheduled hearings on the oil prob lem this week. Senate leaders ap- i parentlv believe the investigation should be broader in scope than was planned originally. i It was reported at the Capitol to day that the oil inquiry probably j will be headed by Senator O Ma-' honey. Democrat, of Wyoming, who is understood to have strong admin istration support for the post. Postponement of the hearings scheduled by the Senate Interstate Commerce Committee will mean a delay in the replies of Oil Admin istrator Ickes and Assistant Secre tary Mike Straus to Senator Moore, who challenged them to prove they weren't trying to set up Government ; ownership or control of private ship ping and transportation by “water and by air” through the State De partment. Rights Seen for Two Companies. The 1,250-mile Near East pipe line, proposed by Mr. Ickes and scheduled for construction by the Petroleum ! Reserves Corp.—a Reconstruction I Finance Corp. subsidiary—would tap oil reserves in Saudi Arabia and1 Kuwait. Two United States com-; panies—the Arabian-American Oil Co., owned by Standard of Califor-1 nia and the Texas Co , and the Gulf Exploration Co., owned by the Gulf; Oil Corp.—expect to obtain the oil , rights if the pipe line is built. The proposal has been criticized by Representative Coffee, Democrat, of Washington, who charged that the Government would put up all the money and take all the risks while the two oil companies would be free to "pursue their customary monopoly deals.” Representative Voorhis, Democrat, of California, yesterday proposed the creation of a 15-man committee to investigate the American petro leum industry, which he has charged was too heavily represented in the Petroleum Administration for War. He expressed alarm at the extent to I which he said the oil interests were "invading the Government.” Another Californian, Representa tive Poulson, Republican, asked why development of the Alaskan petro leum reserve at Point Barrow had been delayed by the Navy for 21 years. He charged the delay made necessary the Army's $130,000,000 Canol project in Canada. He ques tioned the wisdom of building a $165,000,000 pipe line in the Near East while a potentially rich oil field lies undeveloped in Alaska. Prisoner Parcels Reach Japan, Are Held Up LONDON, Feb. 17.—The German news agency DNB reported in a Tokio dispatch yesterday that the first shipment of parcels to Ameri can prisoners of war has reached Japan via Vladivostok, but further plans for distribution will have to be put back because of what the dis patch called bad treatment of Japa nese in American camps.

WOOD. 140,000German PeasantsTrek 1,600 Miles as Reds Advance Ey the Associated Press. MADRID. Feb. 17.—One hundred and forty thousand peasants of Ger man origin, ordered by the Nazis to evacuate their Black Sea homes in the face of the Russian advance, have completed a 1,600-mile trek across snow and ice, German news papers received here yesterday re ported. The accounts said the peasants had inhabited more than 1,000 vil lages of the Kherson area, on the northern shores of the Black Sea just across the Dnieper River from the Russian Army. They were des cribed as descendants of Germans who had held the lands since the 17th century. The newspaper Deutsche Allege meine Zeitung said in a dispatch from Posen, Poland, that the refu gees were forced to travel by wagon land oxcart with their possessions because "all transport in the Rus- • sian area has been reserved for the German Army.” Without explaining the fate of the remainder, the dispatch said 600.000 peasants of German origin inhabited the Black Sea area, and described the journey as being so difficult that the long columns often averaged less than a mile a day. The newspaper quoted a German order that most of the refugees would be employed in war factories. Other German accounts said that 60.000 peasants of unstated nation ality had arrived in Bulgaria from I the Odessa area after travelling for j"several months” and that the Bul garian government, fearing Com Jmunist propaganda, had interned l them in concentration camps. Ensign Canning Killed In Crash Into Lagoon Ensign James G. Canning. 24, U. S. N. R., son of Mr. and Mrs. John B.

Tressler, 35, author of several books and a former magazine col umnist, committed suicide with gas late yesterday at his home in sub urban Shorewood Hills, Coroner E. A. Fischer announced. Mr. Fischer said Mr. Tressler had been despondent because of ill health.

District Public School Drinking Fountains Hit as Insanitary Many District public schools have insanitary drinking fountains, it was charged yesterday at the Board of Education meeting and Supt. of Schools Robert L. Haycock was re quested to conduct an immediate in vestigation. The charge was made by Adelbert Lee, board member, who said the unfit water fountains "may run into the hundreds.” Mr. Lee’s remarks came during a discussion of the re port submitted by Jere Crane, first assistant superintendent of schools, on uncompleted repairs which had been ordered by the board. Many of the repairs, it was point ed out, were held up because it has been impossible to obtain priorities on vital materials. Complete Reports Sought. “I don't think we should bury our heads in the sand about these materials,” Mr. Lee said. "There is a multitude of such items being canceled and voided without our knowing any of the details.” Mr. Lee asked Mr. Crane to file com plete reports with the board, giving reasons for not being able to obtain the materials. Mr. Crane said today that some old-type fountains, without sanitary guards, still existed in school build ings. "I can’t say whether they are ac tually unhealthful,’’ he commented. "I’d rather have the Health Depart ment make a statement on that.” The school official pointed out, however, that since the materials shortage developed two years ago. no efforts had been made to keep up the replacement program in the schools. He said only a "normal maintenance program” was at tempted. Dr. Joseph A. Murphy, director of school medical inspection, at tached to the Health Department, said a large number of the old-style fountains had been replaced but many still were in use. “Theoretically Dangerous.’* “Most of them,” he said, “are the oretically dangerous, but relatively they create small hazards for the | children. If the danger is terribly acute, we make a recommendation that they be abandoned.” He described the old fountains as those in which the water bubbled up vertically, with no mouth guards over the nozzle. It is possible, he said, for the water in such fountains to become contaminated. “For years before materials be came scarce,” he said, "we made recommendations that all the old fountains be replaced. The trouble then was that the money was not1 appropriated. It became necessary; to carry out the program gradually.” j Dr. James A. Gannon, physician member of the board, proposed the Health Department be called into the picture to insist that the War Production Board release needed materials to rectify unhealthful con ditions if the board is unable to win priorities. Mr. Haycock said he would in vestigate the matter at once and would report to the board when he felt it necessary. The board also voted to put the schools back on a five-year painting schedule and asked the Commis sioners to order the repair shop to ■speed up the program.

Banks Distributing First Ration Tokens Under New System Washington banks today started to distribute to retail stores the new red and blue ration tokens which will be placed in circulation, begin ning February 27. Banking circles estimated that several million of the plastic tokens, which will eventually take the place of ration stamps, will be distributed. At the same time, the Office of Price Administration announced that one-point green stamps, as well as the blue tokens, will be given as change in processed food sales dur ing the first three weeks the plan is In operation. It will not be necessary for con sumers to apply for tokens in bulk. They will continue to use stamps as before and will build up a supply of tokens through the change method. OPA said it would be the first use of green stamps as change. One point brown stamps for meat are currently being used in this manner and the policy will be continued dur ing the change to tokens. Two sets of stamps will be used for processed foods and two for meats and fats during the three-week transition period. The last of the green stamps—K, L and M—and the brown—Y and Z—will be valid through March 20 and will be worth 8, 5, 2 and 1 points, as at present. Ration book 4 blue stamps A8, B8. C8, D8 and E8—each with a 10 point value—will be valid for processed foods from February 27 through May 20. 1 Blue tokens—and through March 20, l-point green stamps—will be! given as change for both sets of processed food stamps. * Red 10-point stamps A8, B8 and C8 in Book 4 will be good from February 27 through May 20, while stamps D8. E8 and F8 will be good March 12 through May 20. Change for the two sets of meat stamps will be given in red tokens and—through March 20—in 1-point brown stamps.

'Coverup' Is Charged As Committee Halts Inquiry on WMCA Deal Br the Associated Presi. Suspension of a House investiga tion of the sale of radio station WMCA, New York, a transaction which the former owner said “was greased from the White House down,” split the committee wide open today, with Republican mem bers charging a move to cover up "unsavory facts.” Chairman Lea, Democrat, of Cal ifornia announced yesterday that the committee would suspend its inquiry pending completion of court action in New York in which Don ald Flamm. the former owner, seeks to invalidate the sale. Mr. Flamm told the committee re cently that he sold the station to Edward J. Noble in 1941 against his will because he was convinced that his license would not be renewed by the Federal Communications Commission if he did not sell. Names Presidential Aide. Mr. Flamm brought into the trans action the names of David K. Niles, a presidential aide; Thomas Cor coran, former White House adviser: William J. Dempsey, former chief counsel of the FCC, and Leslie Rob erts, former radio executive for the WPA. The committee’s action, Mr. Lea said was on motion of Representa tive Hart, Democrat, of New Jer sey, and was concurred in by him self and Representatives Magnuson, Democrat, of Washington. The two Republican members, Representatives Miller of Missouri and Wigglesworth of Massachusetts, said in a statement that the action of the Democratic majority “in squelching the investigation of the strange sale of Radio Station WMCA and the part played by high officials of the present political ad ministration • * • is a ‘hush-hush’ move * * * to keep unsavory facts from the public.” “Cover Up” Charged. “It Is part of the whole New Deal scheme to cover up pernicious bureaucratic practices and the graft that is inherent in such a maze as we have in Washington today,” they said. The statement said that neither of the Republicans was present at the committee meeting, one "was not even notified of the meeting until after it had been held and j neither was advised of the contem ' plated action.” i “Let the record show that three Democrats covered up and sought to shield the administration Just as the facts began to hurt," Mr. Miller and Mr. Wigglesworth said.
