British Leaders Voice
Aim of Effecting Full
Postwar Co-operation
By the Associated Press.
NEW YORK, Mar. 13.—A deter
mination to face postwar interna
tional relations problems squarely
and practically was expressed yes
terday in a symposium of represent
atives of countries comprising the
British Commonwealth of Nations.
Among those represented in the
symposium, “the Postwar World,"
published yesterday in International
Conciliation, organ of the Carnegie
Endowment for International Peace,
were Richard K. Law, minister of
state in the British foreign office;
Lord Halifax, British Ambassador to
the United States; Col. J. J. Llew
ellin, British minister of food, and
Sir Clive Baillieu, deputy president
of the Federation of British Indus
tries.
Stating that the postwar goal of
the United Nations was “the fulfill
ment of the four freedoms," Mr. Law
■aid:
“It is for each one of the United
Nations to keep his own house clean
and tidy and so render himself one
with whom it is fitting to co-oper
ate. Let us all realize that if w>e
are to survive, the United Nations
is a practical and essential aim, not
a starry halo."
Lord Halifax said that it was
natural for the United States and
Great Britain to take the lead in
arranging certain Allied conferences
because “the plain fact is that we
are both of us world-wide trading
nations to whom peace and stability
are indispensable.
Hiring of Women
Rises Sharply Here
Employment of women in estab
lishments reporting their war labor
needs to the War Manpower Com
mission in this region increased 29
per cent during 1943, Regional WMC
Director Henry E. Treide announced
today. In addition to the District,
the region comprises Maryland, Vir
ginia, West Virginia and North
Carolina.
He said that 31.2 per cent of the
1,154,029 employes reported Decem
ber 31 by aircraft, ordnance and
other industries in the region were
women. He reported a total of 360,
164 women employed on that date,
as compared with 277,507 women
the previous year.
The report showed that in the
District, outside of Government, the
percentage of women employed in
creased during the year from 29.6
per cent to 34.5 of the total workers
employed.
“Women represent the largest re
maining potential sources of labor
supply for war employment," Mr
Treide pointed out. “Women have
shown that they can do first-class
work and that they are willing to
accept war jobs. Every job that be
comes vacant because a war worker
enters the armed forces or decides
to go back home from a war center
should be filled by a woman if a
woman is capable of filling it.”
Mr. Treide said at least 150,000
more women should go into war1
work in this region this year to help j
war plants maintain or increase
production schedules.

Dr. Sockman Denies
'Obliteration Raids'
Hurt Nazi Morale
By the Associated Press.
NEW YORK, March 13.—Dr.
Ralph Sockman, one of 28 clergy
men who last week signed a declara
tion condemning “obliteration bomb
ing” of German cities,'said yesterday
the alternative was concentrated
bombing of military objectives plus
a clear statement from the United
States Government on the kind of
postwar world to be offered the
German people.
Dr. Sockman, pastor of Christ
Methodist Church, said in a sermon
that bombing of military objectives
was far different from “deliberate
obliteration of civilian areas and
population.”
He said that Hitler, in his air at
tack on Britain, “by his brutal meth
ods only served to stiffen the resist
ance of the English,” adding that
he believed Allied bombing in Ger
many was having the same effect on
German morale.
“Therefore, from the standpoint of
sheer military strategy," Dr. Sock
man said, “I believe it is a mistake
to direct attacks on women and chil
dren in the effort to check the fight
ing spirit of a nation. The deliberate
killing of children does not stop
guilty men.”
Dr. Sockman said civilians should
“leave military strategy to the gen
erals.” but added that the church
should try to “point toward the
highest ideal it can see.”
Dr. Sockman said a declaration on
postwar aims "backed up by our now
superior air power, would in my
opinion serve to undermine the re
i gime of Hitler far more quickly than
the bombing of civilian areas while
our administration remains silent as
to what ‘unconditional surrender’
i means.”

Col. J. W. Thomason,
Writer and Marine,

By the Associated Press.
SAN DIEGO, Calif., Mar. 13.—
Col. John William Thomason, jr., 51,
Marine Corps, a well-known author,!
died yesterday in the Naval Hospi
tal after a brief
illness.
A veteran of
the World War,

Navy Department.
A native of Huntsville, Tex., he
attended the University of Texas

Doenitz Tells People
Reich Is Fighting for
Its Very Existence
By thf Associated Press.
LONDON, Mar. 13.—Substituting
for Adolf Hitler at the microphone,
Admiral Karl Doenitz told the Ger
man people in a Memorial Day ad
dress yesterday that a “pitiless
struggle is being waged for the
existence or annihilation of our
nation.”
In his address, the first time since
the start of the war that Hitler
has failed to broadcast as part of
Germany's annual tribute to her
war dead, Doenitz, supreme com
mander of the German Navy, de
clared:
“Everybody knows we are in the
midst of a merciless struggle of great
harshness and seriousness. Events
of this war and the brutal aims of
our enemies which they have pub
licly proclaimed demonstrate to us
what is at stake.”
No Flags and Bunting.
Always before, Hitler has spoken
from the rostrum of Berlin’s ancient
Zeughaus, the military museum on
the Unter den Linden. Neutral re
ports from Stockholm have men
tioned bomb hits on the old land
mark in this year’s raids on Berlin.
Berlin reports of the Memorial
Day observance indicated clearly its
gloomy nature. Heretofore flags
and bunting were flying. This year
there were no pennants and Hein
rich Himmler, Gestapo chieftain,
prohibited all amusements.
The Fuehrer's naval commander
spoke soon after the announcement
that his youngest son, Naval Lt.
Peter Doenitz, had "died a hero's
death in the battle of the Atlantic.”
Struggle for Survival.
Concerning bomb-lashed Ger
many, he declared “we shall be vic
torious * * • thanks to the hardiness
and determination of the home
front. • * * above all we appreciate
the heroism of those parts of the
fatherland which have become
themselves a part of the front as a
result of terror attacks.”
Hitler, he said, “will steer the
Reich safely through this struggle
for survival.”
