U. S., Britain Open
Preliminary Talks On Postwar Aviation Bt the Associated Press. United States officials have had Borne brief discussions of postwar aviation with Canada and are begin ning similar conversations with Great Britain, but there appears to be no likelihood of the talks going beyond the preliminary stage. One well-informed Government official said today that no definite action can be taken until the United States adopts a policy on interna tional aviation or before Russia, China, France and some South American countries are ready to join the talks. Great Britain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand have stated their position — all propose to have a single flag line in foreign air com merce and all favor some kind of international authority, with dif ferences as to the extent of its con trol. U. S. Plan Undecided. The United States has not made any decisions on those points be yond the general agreement that it will continue to urge international safety regulations. Congress and a number of Government agencies have been working on the many angles involved in deciding post war policy, however, and open hear ings may be ordered soon by a Senate Commerce Subcommittee on Aviation. At least one high official of the Government stopped in Canada for two days recently to talk with offi cials from Ottawa while en route to London for conferences. In Eng land he will join with Undersecre tary of State Stettinius, who has been there for some time. In another aviation development, Oswald Ryan, member of the Civil Aeronautics Board, told the Senate Judiciary Committee yesterday that commercial aviation insurance must meet foreign rates if American air lines are to get their share of post war international trade. Avoids Comment on Bill. Mr. Ryan steered clear of com ment on a pending bill to exempt insurance companies from regula tion under the Federal antitrust laws during testimony in which he advocated development of “an American insurance market of suffi cient proportions to absorb all ordi nary aviation insurance risks.” Chairman McCarran commented at one point that British interests would “utilize every means to domi nate postwar commercial aviation.” “Great Britain deals friendship with one hand and business with the other, always keeping one hand free,” Senator McCarran observed. Dubinsky Quits American Labor Party By the Associated Press. NEW YORK, Mar. 31.—David Dubinsky, president of the Inter national Ladies’ Garment Workers Union, AFL, announced last night his withdrawal, “officially and pub licly,” from the American Labor Party. He said at a press conference that he hoped an independent ticket, pledged to support President Roose velt for a fourth term, would be entered in New York. Mr. Dubinsky said his union had furnished about 60 per cent of the ALP income since it was organized in 1936, fixing its total contribu tions at $532,000. In a formal statement, he said he regarded “the former Ameri&an La bor Party from now on as a Com munist Labor Party.” * * * Willkie Slate Withdrawn From Ohio Primaries By the Associated Press. CLEV ELAND, Mar. 31.—The group of city councilmen who filed a pro-Wplkie slate of delegates in two congressional districts for the Republican National Convention last night withdrew their nomina tions from the May primary. The withdrawal followed a re quest from Republican State Chair man Ed. D. Schorr, who appealed to the councilmen to unite behind Gov. John W. Bricker’s candidacy. Councilman William J. Rogers, Victor Cohen, Alexander L. De Maioribus and Ray C. Miller had filed petitions backing George B. Harris, former State Bar Associa tion president, as a “favorite son” candidate for the Republican presi dential nomination from the 21st and 22d congressional districts. The councilmen unofficially were backing Wendell L. Willkie for first choice and Thomas E. Dewey for second choice for the nominations.

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.. — Repub lican and Democratic leaders in In diana are hard at work building their fences for the national and State elections. The Republicans express great confidence. They carried the State in 1940 for Wendell L. Willkie and their State ticket with the excep tion of Governor. In 1942 they elected nine of the 11 members of the House. They have one Repub lican Senator and are hopeful they will have a second when the Novem ber election votes are counted. They have elected mayors in the State’s three largest cities, Indianapolis, Fort Wayne and Evansville. The Democrats are counting on the greatly increased labor vote. In diana is a beehive of war industry. Fred F. Bayes, Democratic State chairman, quotes the figures, ob tained by the State unemployment insurance agency, which show that 288,041 workers have come into the State since 1940. He estimates this means at least 600,000 new voters. A large percentage will support President Roosevelt. Many have come from Southern and border States and presumably are Democrats. For example, 57,950 are from Kentucky, 11,949 from Ten nessee, 3,528 from Alabama. 3,801 from Arkansas, 3,570 from Florida, 9,660 from Missouri, 3,759 from Okla homa, 4,354 from Texas, 2,989 from Mississippi, 2,100 from Georgia and 1,106 from North Carolina. Large numbers came also from Illinois, Ohio and other States. The Demo crats contend that wherever the workers have come from they will be inclined to support Mr. Roosevelt. Practically all of these workers have been in Indiana long enough to register and vote. The requirement is six months’ residence. So the Democrats are putting on a strenu ous campaign to get this mass of immigrant workers to register in time for the election. They are be ing aided by the CIO Political Action Committee and also by AFL leaders. Dan Tobin, head of the Teamsters and Truckers’ Union, has his head quarters in Indianapolis and has strongly indorsed a fourth term. The Republicans deny the workers will all be for Mr. Roosevelt. They claim their share of the labor vote. Furthermore, the Indiana farmers are strongly Republican. The GOP is counting, too, on the general un iest and the feell. g of many people that a change In Government is necessary. The Democrats are counting on having Gov. Schricker on their ticket as a candidate for Senator and Senator Jackson appointed to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Senator Van Nuys. Gov. Schricker won in 1940 by 3,000 votes, while Mr. Roosevelt was losing the State to Mr. Willkie. While Gov. Schricker has not yet announced his candidacy, it is re garded as a foregone conclusion he will run. The Republicans have still to pick their slate. For the Senate three candidates are in the offing: Homer E. Capehart, head of the Packard Manufacturing Co., now engaged in war production: Lt. James M. Tucker, who has just been released by the Navy, and Carl Mote, owner of telephone companies in Northern Indiana and publisher of a maga zine in Indianapolis. Mr. Tucker was badly wounded at Salerno. He was Secretary of State before he joined the Navy and is a popular figure. There is a strong possibility that none of these candidates will make the grade and that the State con vention may turp to Representative Halleck, chairman of the Republican Congressional Campaign Committee and a leading figure in the House. Ralph H. Gates, who recently re signed as Republican State chair man, has announced his candidacy for the gubernatorial nomination. It was under his direction that the present strong organization has been constructed by the GOP and he ap pears to be in a good position to win the nomination. Mayor Tindal of Indianapolis, Mayor Castle of Con norsville and Mayor Baals of Fort Wayne are also making bids for this nomination. The New Deal is not popular in1 Indiana. The Democrats admit they would have no chance of carrying the State if it were not for the war but believe the argument against changing Presidents during the war emergency will save the day for the Democratic ticket. The Republicans insist that the swing of the political pendulum is all in their favor. In 1942 they car ried the State over the Democrats by 125,000 votes. They see no chance for Mr. Roosevelt to overcome this figure. Landon Urges GOP To Pick Man Able to Work With Congress Bj the Associated Press. TOPEKA, Mar. 31.—Alf M. Lan don pleaded today for a Republican presidential nominee able to work with Congress and replace President Roosevelt who, he said, was deter mined "to establish himself in the White House for life.” Mr. Landon, former Kansas Gov-, ernor and the party’s 1936 nominee1, said the Republican presidential choice must "be able to inspire trust at home and abroad in his ability to do teamwork with the Congress" and “command overwhelming con fidence in his determination and ability to end promptly the confu-i sion of red tape, bureau-made laws, bureaucratic control of business; farming and labor, that are inter fering with our war efforts.” In an address before a Republican State convention, Mr. Landon said the party’s 1944 platform must be “definite, unequivocal, courageous and forward looking.” He said minimum requirements should include "assurance that we will exert every effort toward the war" and "definite plans for recon version from war to peace and for returning soldiers and sailors.” He suggested the platform should have “a blueprint for free industry and not a socialistic state" and "in clude a simplification of our tax structure,” along with a pledge to remove domestic and foreign trade barriers. "We are drifting into imperialism or isolationism or a vicious combi nation of both, in foreign affairs,” Mr. Landon declared. "The 'quar terback' theory of the President is as destructive in the foreign field as it was in the domestic field. The sudden shifts for which Candidate Roosevelt is notorious simply have been a tremendous millstone around the neck of Uncle Sam, both at home and abroad.” -- - a . Willkie Concludes Wisconsin Campaign By the Associated Press. SUPERIOR. Wis., Mar. 31.—Wen dell L. Willkie left the fate of his own candidacy for the Republican presidential nomination and that of the party itself in his expressed opinion to Wisconsin voters yester day. He concluded an intensive 13 day campaign to win Wisconsin’s .’4 delegates.to the Republican Na tional Convention with a statement in which he said he came to Wis consin because “I didn’t want the people of Wisconsin to have to buy a pig in the poke in the presidential primary next Tuesday.” Slates of delegates also are en tered in support of Gov. Thomas E. Dewey of New York, Lt. Comdr. Harold E. Stassen, former Minne sota Governor, and Gen. Douglas MacArthur, but Mr. Willkie is the only one to campaign personally. ”1 wanted them (the voters of Wisconsin) to know the beliefs and the purposes of at least one candi date in the field,” his farewell state ment saic^ "I ask the people of Wisconsin to judge my candidacy on the basis of those beliefs and those expressions.” The candidate left for Minne apolis last night on his way to Nebraska, where he and Comdr. Strassen are contenders in a presi dential preference primary April 11.

Stepfather Is Held In Hatchet Murder Of 23-Year-Old Girl Bt the Associated Press. LANSING, Mich., Mar. 31.—Mar garet McUmber, 23, died today of skull wounds while S;ate police pon dered the charge to be placed against her stepfather, James Riley Gillihan, 46-year-old Lansing war worker, who, Sergt. Lawrence M. Meehan said, had surrendered to City police last night, announcing, “I have just killed a woman.” Sergt. Meehan said Miss McUm ber’s skull was crushed by blows from a hatchet. She was found un conscious by officers who went to the home she shared with Gillihan *nd her mother. She died this morning In a hospital. Gillihan had been held on an open charge of suspicion of assault with Attempt to kill, pending the outcome of Miss McUmber's injuries. Sergt. Meehan said Gillihan told a bizarre story that he and Miss Mc Umber were sweethearts, but became estranged several years ago. He said Gillihan related that at the girl’s suggestion he married her mother, Mrs. Ludma McUmber, 41, and that since then he and the young woman had been intimate, but that re cently she had refused to accept his attentions. The sergeant said Gillihan ad mitted freely that yesterday he pur chased a hatchet and planned to kill the girl and then commit suicide, but that he lost his courage when he sought to take his own life. Gillihan, an inspector in a war production plant here, is a former resident of Sumner County, Tenn, where he met his wife and her daughter. Institute Planned At American U.

Draft Board Lists Of 4-Fs in War Jobs Proposed by Keesling By MIRIAM OTTENBERG. Promising that Selective Service Director Hershey will follow the recommendations of the Costello Subcommittee in sorting out the 4-Fs not now contributing to the war effort, Col. Francis V. Keesling of selective service today proposed the posting of a "4-F honor list in draft boards to let every community know which 4-Fs are doing their patriotic duty.” He made ti clear, however, that this form of community pressure would have to be backed up by the threat of induction into the armed forces for those who do not go into war work. Col. Keesling told the House Mili tary Affairs Subcommittee at its final pre-recess hearing that Selec tive Service could quickly gather from the files of the draft boards which of an estimated 6,000,000 men now in 4-F, discharged from the Army, or likely to go into 4-F soon, are now making their war contri bution. Detailed Estimates Not Available. Pointing out that no plant-by plant estimate of manpower re quirements is now available. Col. Keesling agreed with Chairman Costello that the new inter-agency committee now screening defer ments of men under 26 would de termine how many 4-Fs are needed by every war plant. When the draft boards have that information, he said, they will be able to direct the 4-Fs in their com munity in a selective basis to near by jobs in the war effort. He pro posed that the draft' boards past lists of 4-Fs with a star beside the name of each one who has gone into war ,work. The effect of that list on the community would force a number of 4-Fs into essential jobs, he predicted. Col. Keesling agreed with Repre sentative Sparkman, Democrat of Alabama that the entire 4-F pro gram would not work without the co-operation of the War Depart ment, and that this was ‘‘the last resort.” Secretary of War Stimson told a press conference yesterday that the War Department preferred national service legislation and would con sider a work corps of 4-Fs within the Army only as a last resort. Report for February. Col. Keesling also gave the sub committee a report on draft board actions during February. These major points were brought out: The draft boards took nearly 3, 000,000 classification actions during February—the most activity along this line since the winter of 1942-3. Of the 150,000 men drafted during the month, 50,000 were fathers, bringing the total number of drafted fathers to 215.000. Men with occupational deferments other than agriculture now make up the largest deferred group, with a total of 3,677,000 now in 2-A and 2-B. Including agriculture, deferments for occupational reasons increased by more than half a million in February, and reached a new high of 5.399,000—or slightly less than half of the Nation’s 18-37 manpower pool not in the armed forces. Of those with occupational defer ments, approximately 574,000 are men under 26 years of age, of whom 330,000 are non-fathers. Of the 1,722,000 deferred in agri culture, approximately 613,000 are under 26, of whom 530,000 are non fathers. 9,502,000 Inductions. A total of 1,147,000 fathers lost their dependency deferments during the month. Two-thirds of the men now in Class 1-A are fathers. As of March 1, a total of 9.502,000 draft-age men had been drafted or had enlisted in the armed forces. Commenting on the War Depart ment's preference for national serv ice legislation, as expressed by Sec retary Stimson. Chairman Costello said before today’s hearing that an effort would be made by the sub committee to modify the various 4-F proposals until a ‘‘feasible program” can be worked out. Mr. Costello gave this picture of what he believes Selective Service should do until. legislation can be worked out: Within the 4-F class, there could be four sub-classes. Into 4-F-l would go the non-fathers not now engaged In essential work. Into 4-F-2 would go the fathers in the same position. Into 4-F-3 would go the men now making a contribution to the war effort and into 4-F-4 would go those not qualified for war work because of the extent of their disability. Subject to Assignment. If the men remained in 4-F-l, they would be subject to assignment by their draft board to war work and, if they refused, would go into a work corps in the Army. The list of activities into which the men could go, Mr. Costello ex plained, could be drawn up by se lective service or the new inter agency committee now working on deferments of men under 26. The legislator added, however, that 4-Fs could be treated more “leniently” than physically fit draft eligibles. He pointed out that with the physically fit men, draft boards had to compare their contribution in civilian life with what they could do in the Army whereas with 4-Fs it was exclusively a question of whether or not they were promoting the war effort. Draft boards, he said, would not be expected to tap the group of men with such serious physical handi caps that they would require long re-training if they were removed from the work they are now doing. 3PT Boats Sunk, Possibly by Fire Of Own Forces By the Associated Press. ALLIED HEARQUARTERS, Southwest Pacific, Mar. 31.—A com munique today from Gen. Douglas MacArthur’s headquarters told of the loss of three Allied PT patrol boats, possibly to the gunfire of Allied planes and an American destroyer. Statements in the communique and by a headquarters spoaesman indicated that 11 crewmen of the PT boats were lost. Two PT boats were sunk off New Britain under circumstances indi cating that “friendly planes, failing to recognize identification signals, may mistakenly have attacked,” the communique said. The spokesman said seven men were reported lost. Tire other PT boat, operating close inshore along Bougainville Island in the Solomons, was reported hit by a destroyer shell during a bombard ment. • House Group Mwes To Delay Final Tax i J "'jw By the Associated Ptes*. y* •r.V Because some 15,000,000 to 20,000,000 taxpayers paw must guess at their incomtf before they get it, the House Ways and Means Committee has voted to change from December 15 to the following January 15 the final day for filing revised estimates of income. Chairman Doughton yesterday said such a change would provide substantial relief for farmers, the self-employed and professional people. Under the pay-as-you-go law, de clarations of expected income must be filed by single persons with wage or salary above $2,700 and married couples above $3,500, and by per sons with income more than $1*00 from sources other than wage or salary. , ,/ • The first estimate." with at least a one-fourth tax payment, iis du$ by March 15 of each year (delayed until April 15 this year). Taxpay ers are permitted to file revised estimates on June 15, September 15 and December 15. Yesterday’s ac tion, if made law by Congress, would move the final date from De cember 15 to the following Janu ary 15. Other Problems Met. The guessing procedure is de signed to put on a current-payment basis those taxpayers whose ap proximate total tax is not taken by the 20 per cent withholding levy. The Ways and Means Committee, in its effort to simplify the Na tion's income tax laws, also ran into these knotty problems: What to do about exemptions for dependents who themselves earn some money. Whether to allow reductions in the withholdings from wages and salaries of persons who declare they Intend to make substantial contri butions for religious and charitable purposes. Mr. Doughton said he hoped the committee could clear up all the problems soon, and that Congress would proceed with enactment of legislation streamlining the tax statutes. Churches Seen Hit, Meanwhile, Representative Cur tis, Republican, of Nebraska said the simplification plan as now ten tatively drawn would work to the disadvantage of religious and chari table institutions. The plan would allow a flat de duction of 10 per cent for contri butions, interest paid and other taxes, in computing the income tax, and for the purposes of withhold ings from wages and salaries. The taxpayer would be given the privi lege of filing a formal declaration and obtaining a tax rebate at the year end if such deductions actually exceed 10 per cent of income. Mr. Curtis and several other law: makers want an adjustment to pro vide for reductions in the withhold ing rate against persons making above-average contributions, so they will not be forced to ask for rebates at the year end. Cites Difficulties. Pointing out that under present law 15 per cent of an individual’s in come, if given to religion and char ity, is exempt from the income tax, Mr. Curtis declared that to abandon the principle that such gifts are exempt from taxation means "the ultimate impairment” of charitable, religious and educational institu tions. Some congressional tax experts contend that without arriving at a method of treating ’‘average” con tributions, there could be no simpli fication of the tax laws to eliminate the necessity of some 30,000,000 per sons having to file returns. The plan worked out by the com mittee would adjust the withholding levy so as to cover the full tax lia bility of persons with incomes under $5,000. Chaplains to Conduct Good Friday Services Army and Navy chaplains will con duct Good Friday services at various Government and service buildings, the Three Hours' Observance of Good Friday/organization announced today.

Bricker Demands Currency Be Stabilized After War Ey the Associated Press. COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Mar. 31.—As soon as the war is won and there is “stabilized government abroad,” every American soldier should be brought back to American soil, Gov. John W. Bricker of Ohio, candidate for the Republican presi dential nomination, declared at a rally here last night. After the war there must be a "stablized currency and a restored faith in it,” Gov. Bricker said. “That means we will have to take away from the President the power to take away a piece of the Amer ican dollar whenever he chooses. “And there will have to be a standard international exchange with a constant understanding throughout the world on the rela tive values of the currencies, instead of a competitive valuation among the natiooe.” Nels6n Calls for 10% Increase In Output of Invasion Craft WPB CHIEF BUNKS ON LCI BOAT—Donald Nelson, head of the War Production Board, prepares for bed in the bunk as signed to him aboard an LCI (landing craft, infantry) on which he spent the night. He was with a labor-management party on a cruise inspecting East Coast amphibious bases in the Chesapeake Bay area. —^A. P. Photo from Navy. By the Astociated Press. In preparation for things to come, the United States must step up by 10 per cent the con struction of invasion craft. War Production Board Chairman Donald Nelson set that goal today as he completed a 90-mile training trip aboard a pitching LCI (landing craft, infantry) boat and a muddy inspection tour of three big new amphibious training bases In the Cresapeake Bay area. He said an "outstanding” job has been done since November in the fast-paced program to build 80.000 of the craft in a few months. But he added that invasion p'ans for both Europe and Asia call for even greater efforts and noted that the Navy is turning out trained crews faster than the craft are being built. Capt. Watt Host to Party. Capt. Gordon Watt was host to Mr. Nelson's party, which included executives and union officials fropa a few of the 30,000 companies'word ing on the No. 1 priority program, as well as newspapermen., "We have been improving our amphibious craft continuously,” Capt. Watt said. ■ "The enemy has learned many things about them, but he will learn some more the hard way.” - The procession of new craft being delivered down the Mississippi River system alone has amounted to as many as 20 a day. another naval of ficial, Capt. Victor C. Barringer, dis dosed. About half the production job Is being done on inland waters, in some cases by firms which never built ships before. A ferrying service has been or ganized under the Coast Guard to bring the flat-bottomed craft down to New Orleans, where they are turned over to their newly trained combat crews. In some cases, up to eight of the 100-foot tank-landing craft (LCT) are lashed together in rafts for the voyage. Trip Made in Local Storm. Mr. Nelson's return trip acioss the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay from Camp Bradford. Va„ to Sol omons Island, Md., both amphibious training bases, was made in a local storm of about the same intensity as that which hindered the landings in Sicily, Navy men said. Capt. Watt joined Mr. Nelson in the appeal for faster production, pointing out that landing craft had proved themselves the “work horses” of recent invasion beachheads by supplying food, arms and supplies long after their original attack mis sion was finished. “If we had twice as many, they would have been busy continuously,” the officer said. “We need quality, too. The country is sending its best and toughest young men to these beachheads. They are the men we can least afford to lose.” Uncle Sam needs your waste bacon grease, drippings, vegetable shorten ing. Take them to your meat dealer. Martin Declares GOP Would Lead World Back to Prosperity Br the Associated Press. BOSTON, Mar. 31.—House Minor ity Leader Martin declared last night that the Republican party would “lead the world back to sanity, peace and prosperity" by keeping “faith with the men and women on the fighting fronts and protecting at home those sacred ideals they are so gallantly protect ing * * * all over the world." Addressing a meeting of the Massachusetts Women's Republican Club he said: “We must prepare a forward looking postwar program which will maintain private enterprise and per mit this country to go forward • * *. We must maintain the free dom of labor, freedom of the farmer and freedom of management." Asserting that discussions of post war problems of tremendous magni tude 'have been in progress, Mr. Martin declared that “both Con gress and the people have been left completely in the dark as to the decisions which are contemplated. “Such practice is as wrong as it is dangerous. The men and women who are actually fighting this war, the people who are paying for the prosecution of the war through staggering taxes, the members of Congress who are the chosen repre sentatives of the people, should have a real voice in those far-reaching decisions. "Congress should be represented at these international conferences. And this representation should in clude delegates of both major parties. “This is not a one-party or a one clique war,” Mr. Martin asserted. "It is a war of all the American people.” Boy, 11, Sets Out To See World, Changes Mind Fred Hoover, 11, started north to make his way in the world last night but he didn't get far. He left a note on his bed at home, 7409 Alaska avenue N.W., “I am safe. I have my ration book.” His father, William R. Hoover, an engineer, looked in to see if the boy was cevered at 1 a.m. He found the note and notified police. About 2:15 a.m. George Wilt of the Silver Spring police saw a little figure with a big duffle bag slung over one shoulder trudging out Georgia avenue. When Mr. Wilt re turned on his patrol the boy was sitting on the curb in front of a hamburger stand on the Colesville pike. Fred was home again by 3 o’clock. He would not tell where he was bound or what he intended to do. He had $1 in his pockets and a soldier's steel helmet in the bag. “It was the spring, I guess,” his father said. “It was an Horatio Alger stunt. He was going to start | a store chain or something.” You'll swear they're genuine Patents and Reptilesl A . You'll swear they're genuine Patents and Reptiles!
