WOMIN'S ARMY CORPS Republican Women Charge 'Politics’ on Service Vote Issue Resolution* accusing the ad ministration of making “a political football" of the service vote ques tion and urging the inclusion of women in the peace councils were adopted by the Advisory Board of the National Federation of Wom en’s Republican Clubs as it closed a three-day session late yesterday at the Statler Hotel. In another resolution the women commended Congress "for its reas sertion of the independence and initiative of the legislative body and for its reassumption of its rightful place in our republican form of government." The board also announced it would hold its biennial convention in September with the Republican presidential nominee as principal speaker. The convention city will be selected after the Republican national convention in Chicago. Halleck Speaks. Here to map their 1944 campaign strategy, the women were urged yesterday by Representative Halleck of Indiana to write men in the armed services and give them a “correct” picture of home front is sues. Representative Halleck, who heads the Republican Congressional Campaign Committee, charged the Nek Deal with utilizing every pos sible propaganda medium to induce servicemen to vote for their “fourth term candidate.” “We Republicans have no com parable opportunities of getting our side to millions of servicemen,” he asserted. “We must depend on the mothers, wives and sisters of the servicemen to tell the boys the truth about the manner in which the administration has misused its powers, how it has fought to kill representative Govern ment, how it has tried to make over America* while real American* were busy working to win the war. "Can’t be Blue-Penciled.” "No political censor could blue pencil millions of these messages sent from loyal American mothers, sisters and wives, if any bureaucrat dared to try it,” he declared. Chairman Harrison E. Spangler of the Republican National Committee told the women the American ship of state "is manned by a crew of seasick landlubbers which has Amer ica literally hanging over the rail,” while a third Republican leader an nounced plans to launch a member ship drive for “first voters” in the near future. Mrs. Clyde Corbin, national chair man of the Young Republican Na tional Federation, said her organ ization’s most important job will be to enlist first voters for the Republi can party. “For it is generality recog nized that a voter will continue to vote for the party for whom he has cast his first ballot,” she said. The drive, she explained, will cover col leges, offices, factories and farms. Must Win Youth Vote. She attributed Republican na tional defeats since 1932 largely to the party’s failure to win the votes of youth. Warning that this country faces its greatest threat to the American way of life since the War between the States, Mr. Spangler declared: “On every hand we see instances Of tampering with the Constitution; Dead Whale Causes Submarine Scare Off Florida Keys By th» AssoeUted Fr«s. MIAMI, Fla,, Mar. 13.—A ; suspicious object In navigable waters off the Florida Keys turned out to be a 50-foot dead whale, the Coast Guard report ed last night. Big whales look suspiciously like submarines to airmen, and they register on detection de vices aboard antisubmarine surface craft. The body is a menace to nav igation. and surface craft from Key West sought to locate it so it could be destroyed. ■ . with undermining the faith of the people in the legislative branch of our Government: of tighter regula tion and regimentation of our daily life by executive decree.” He outlined as two major ob jectives: Winning the war with the greatest possible speed and get ting "our ship of state out of shoal water into safe harbor over the course charted by the founders of this ’Nation.” Both Mr. Spangler and Represen tative Halleck praised the part women have played in elections. Declaring women have had a lot to do with recent Republican successes, Mr. Halleck declared: "Of the last 10 special elections for Congress, we have won eight, and we believe that we have taken an overwhelm-! ing share of the women vote in every election.” U. 5. Won't Fail Poles, O'Brien Tells Party By the Associated Press. NEW YORK. Mar. 13.—“Let us re member that protection of Poland's sovereignty was the ostensible cause of this war," Representative O'Brien, Republican, of New York said yes terday in discussing the future of Poland. The United States will "not fail Poland1’ and the country again will be free and independent with its territory inviolate. Mr. O'Brien told a meeting of Poles and Polish Americans in a “salute to the Polish navy and merchant marine.” He said that when Poland was in vaded she was told "go ahead and fight and we will see to it that you will be taken care of when the time comes.” “What a sad commentary," Mr. O’Brien declared. “A partition is being discussed. Is that what one deserves when he saves a friend from disaster and destruction? Truthfully, ingratitude is the thanks of the world.” The rally celebrated the transfer of five American merchant marine vessels to the Polish government FLOOR MACHINES I RENTED 1 PENETRATING SEALS, WAXES I MODERN FLOORS I i ADAMS 7575 I - n WOODWARD & LOTHROP lO™ II” F a* G Strut* Phone District (300 Moth Damage STOPS . ♦ ♦ Where a No-Moth is Hung Moths breed all year-'round . . . and they eat all year-'round, too.

Meanwhile M. F.
