O’Leary, came a few hours after Father Orlemanski’s return. BISHOP THOMAS M. O’LEARY. -- —...4 Senate Group Asked To Allow 30 Million for Synthetic Oil Plants By J. A. O’LEARY. The United States will never have to negotiate with any foreign gov ernment for petroleum if it de velops its own potential supply of synthetic liquid fuel from coal and oil shale, Senator O'Mahoney, Democrat, of Wyoming declared yes terday in urging the Senate Ap propriations Committee to increase the Budget s Bureau’s $8,000,000 es timate for synthetic demonstration plants. Senator O'Mahoney asked the committee to allow the entire $30, 000.000 recently authorized by Con gress in the enabling act for the program. The expenditure of that amount w-ould be spread over a five-year period, the Senator said, because the program cannot be car ried out in less time than that. It would be more efficient, how ever, to appropriate the full amount and make it “available until ex pended,’’ he argued, asserting the program would be retarded by un certainty if only $8,000,000 is allowed. Senator O'Mahoney said a large force of American bombers flew over Europe Friday night to blast Ger many’s synthetic fuel plants, and he estimated it took 2,000.000 gallons of gasoline to fuel that trip. He cited this to emphasize the importance of; liquid fuel, and said this country should not hesitate to go forward with the development of synthetic liquid fuel here, in-view of the ex penditures being made to destroy the enemy supply. It is not the purpose of the recent enabling act to have the Govern ment go into the production of syn thetic fuel on a large scale itself, but to demonstrate to industry the feasibility of producing synthetic fuel oil and gasoline on an econom ical basis at the proposed demon stration plants. It is possible under this program. Senator O'Mahoney said, to “make certain that the United States for all time would be independent of foreign sources of supply." “It is perfectly clear,’’ he said, "that we would not have to ne gotiate with Great Britain or any other country for Persian or Rus sian oil. if we develop our svnthetic ! sources." The amount to be allowed prob ably will be decided this week when the Senate appropriations group re ports out the Interior Department supply bill. The synthetic fuel pro gram will be under the direction of the Bureau of Mines. Sedition _ ‘Continued From First Page.) qualification unless talesmen other- j wise expressed a firm prejudice. Foreign Witnesses Likely. It is considered likely that some Government witnesses will come from distant sections of the country and perhaps even from foreign countries. Some of the witnesses before the grand jury came a long way to testify. But the identity and nature of prosecution evidence remains entire ly a matter of speculation. The in dictment, however, charges conspir acy, and the Government will be re quired to prove that the defendants contributed to plans to incite the armed forces to mutiny and over throw the Government, setting up the type of state in control of Ger many. It is not necessary, under the theory of the prosecution, to prove that all the defendants even were acquainted. It must be shown that they plotted or acted in support of such a conspiracy, whoever hatched it. District Bar to Discuss Case. The District Bar Association will I discuss the trial at a special meet ing tomorrow night at the May flower Hotel. At least two pro posals will be advanced, it was learned yesterday. One will be a suggestion that a committee be named to offer the services of the organization to Justice Eicher in improving and expediting physical arrangements for the trial and iron ing out any kinks in procedure FOUND.

The meeting is expected to pro yoke sharp disagfeement over the trial, with many members taking the view that the association should not even discuss it while it. is in progress. The Executive Committee refused to call the special meeting lor which 26 members petitioned, nut the committee was overridden at a membership meeting and the special session called. Fund for Counsel Proposed. The second plan to be proposed at the special meeting will be to raise a voluntary fund among mem bers of the bar to compensate de fense attorneys appointed by the court. These counsel otherwise will receive no fees for a trial expected to last months. Justice Jennings Bailey took no action yesterday in regard to the distribution outside his courtroom Thursday of a statement by the National Lawyers’ Guild commend ing his decision in the Laughlin con tempt case and assailing the tactics of defense lawyers in the sedition trial. Declaring the statement was pre pared in advance, before the court’s decision was announced and handed the press the moment Justice Bailey made his ruling, a score of defense counsel demanded in Justice Eicher’s court that Martin Popper, secretary of the organization, be cited for con tempt of court. Justice Eicher sent a copy of the statement Mr. Popper drafted and gave out and a transcription of what the lawyers said about it to Justice Bailey. Failure of Justice Bailey to take any action Friday or yesterday indicated to observers that the matter would be dropped, though there was no official com ment. The Popper statment hailed Jus tice Bailey's ruling in the case of James J. Laughlin, a defense at torney in the sedition case, who was ,found guilty of contempt for activities at the sedition trial and fined $150. Mr. Laughlin has ap pealed. He represents two of the defendants on trial—Robert Noble and James Edward Smythe. The twelve persons who occupy the jury box tentatively—all sub ject to possible elimination on peremptory challenge — include three women. Among the tempo rary jurors are three Government workers. One of the women is a Government clerk, the other two housewives. The rest of the men are in private business. Cuban Sees Drastic Cut In U. S. Sugar Supply By the Associated Press. HAVANA, May 13.—Luis Mendoza & Co. said today that much tighter rationing and possibly even suspen sion of civilian use of sugar in the United States would result if the war continued and the American Government failed to provide price incentives for greater production in Cuba. Frequently a spokesman for the Cuban industry, Mendoza said the 1944 crop would be large—it is esti mated elsewhere at more than 5,000,000 short tons—but would drop as much as 1.800,000 tons next year. To prevent this, he proposed that the United States now promise a better price for the coming year’s crop.

Thomas O. Jones, ID-year-old marine veteran who visited his family here last month, yesterday was awarded the Bronze Star Medal for conspicuous gallantry un der enemy fire in the South Pacific. Son of Mr. and Mrs. James A. Jones, 467 I street S.W., Pfc. Jones was decorated at the Marine Base in San Diego, Calif. He already wears the Purple Heart. According to his citation. Pfc. Jones had his automatic weapon Shot from his hand during action on Bougainville. Without hesita tion, he seized another weapon from a wounded comrade and charged alone into the bunker position, de stroying eight of the enemy and capturing the emplacement. The youthful marine called his mother, from California to tell her about the medal but before he could describe how he had earned it, his three minutes were up, his mother said. He had neglected to mention the action during his month's visit here, she said. He was sent home in March after serving overseas for 18 months. He had enlisted in the Marine Corps at 17. Pfc. Jones attended Bowen School here. Two of his brothers are over seas with the Navy. • 'Wildcat' Strike Ends On Mexican Railroads By the Associated Press.

George J. Shea, chancellor of the diocese, who explained that Bishop O’Leary had imposed canonical penalties which would prohibit Father Orlemanski from function ing, although he still would remain a priest. Shortly afterward, Father Orle manski sent the following letter to Bishop O'Leary: “You are hereby notified that I am no longer under your jurisdic tion but the jurisdiction of the apos tolic delegate in Washington, D. C Sincerely yours in%Christ, Father Stanislaus Orlemanski.” The priest declined any amplifi cation of the message and refused further comment. At the time his eventful visit to Moscow first was made public a chancellery spokesman said that Father Orlemanski did not have his bishop's permission to make Jhe trip. Met by Parishioners. The stocky, blue-eyed priest was met at the railroad station this morning by about 100 of his parish ioners and a group of little children who shouted a welcoming, "Hello, Father.” He was obviously tired but re ceived newspapermen in the rectory and told them he had gone to Moscow to tell Premier Stalin that he wanted the establishment “of an American system in Poland.” He said he had undertaken the voyage “to do something good” and added that he belonged to no party —no clique. “I am working, for the Polish people,” he declared. “I went as a private citizen,” the priest continued. "Nevertheless, I think my Government is fully en titled to have a report from me on what I was doing in Moscow, and I expect to tell my Government whom I saw, what was said and what I did.” WSA Inspector Staff Ordered Cut to 200 Ht the Associated Pres*. NEW YORK, May 13—David A. Richardson, chief of the field serv ice section of the war shipping ad ministration, said today he had Seen ordered to reduce the number Df field inspectors under his juris diction to 200. He did, not give the source of the order. The inspectors check on workers ind disposition of material in ship- j yards. Mr. Richardson testified before a; subcommittee of the House Mer :hant Marine and Fisheries Com mittee which is investigating con ditions in ship repair yards in this area. Declaring that WSA had re quested appropriations for 5,000 field inspectors and had received appro priations for 1,500, Mr. Richardson said that if his force is cut to 200 the ratio per ship under repair would be “less than one man to two vessels.” Chairman Capezzoli of the sub committee departed from his ques tioning of Richardson to remark, “I should like to know why they are doing this.” • “I should like to. too, Mr. chair man,” said Mr. Richardson. Representative Capezzoli said the objective of the hearings was "to Bee what can be done to reduce cost and increase production” in the re pair shipyards. Earlier Roy T. Lemon, director of the maintenance aftl repair division of WSA, testified that cost-plus con tracts provided an incentive for pay roll padding and labor hoarding.
