Hits Gillette for Talk On Dumbarton Oaks By the Aseociated Press. MOSCOW, Dec. 25.—Trud, organ of Soviet trade unions, exhibited concern yesterday over American congressional criticism of postwar peace organization and singled out Senator Gillette, Democrat, of Iowa for voicing “badly concealed attacks on the Soviet Union." “The overwhelming majority of the American people proved gt the last election that they favor a policy of co-operation with the United Nations in the war against Hitlerite Germany and in the organization of the postwar peace,” Trud said. "Still there are people like Sen ator Gillette who, after having failed at the last election, attempt to discredit the results obtained at Dumbarton Oaks.’’ Trud said Senator Gillette had exaggerated the differences at Dum barton Oaks intentionally. Senator Gillette said last night he had expressed his confidence in the Dumbarton Oaks proposal for peace security. Concerning Trud’s charge that he had attempted to discredit the Dumbarton Oaks results, he said he was misinterpreted, and added: “Presumably it is a reference to a talk I made in the Senate some weeks ago. There was nothing in the talk discrediting the purpose or accomplishment of the Dumbarton Oaks proposal. “My only fear, I explained, was that we might in the postwar period lose sight of the fundamental prin ciples of the Atlantic Charter on which these subsequent actions are based—the Connally resolution, the Moscow declaration and the Dum barton Oaks proposal. They all are founded on the Atlantic Charter enunciation of principles. "Apparently there is a miscon ception of what I said.” Joint Study Proposed On Vital D. C. Matters Chairman Randolph of the House District Committee has said he would ask the joint congression al committee named to study a streamlining of congressional pro cedure to consider joint hearings on important measures affecting the District. Mr. Randolph said he believed such a plan not only would save time but would reduce expenses incurred by taking of testimony for transcripts and stenographic records. He also said he believed it might 6peed action by the House and Sen ate on matters requiring simul taneous consideration. A joint House and Senate study of the possibilities of reorganizing con gressional systems for consideration of proposed legislation will be in tituted under the Maloney-Mon roney resolution adopted recently by Congress.

O'Laughlin Terms Pravda's Charges 'Silly' When a writer for the Communist party newspaper Pravda penned a blast last week against the Army and Navy Journal as a "source for pro-Hitlerite propaganda" he chose as his target a doughty warrior who learned how to fight under Teddy Roosevelt. Col. John Callan O’Laughlin, 71 year-old publisher of the unofficial service journal, speaks quietly, al most in a whisper, frit with such authority that more than once his words have echoed around the world with the voice of thunder. The Journal—for 81 years a "ga zette of the land, sea and air”— goes to the desks of Gen. George C. Marshall, Admiral Ernest J. King, IGen. Henry H. Arnold and several hundred thousand other military men, many of them officers. Pershing His Friend. Gen. Pershing, long a friend of Col. O'Laughlin. once called the maga zine “the true historian of the Na tion and its defense.” An officer recently wrote from a fighting front. “I look forward to the Journal as, much as I do to my pay envelope.” Another reported he liked to read I it in the lulls between battle. Many j copies are read by whole companies' or ship’s crews. “We read it until j it falls apart,” a naval crew re-1 cently reported. Sitting at his desk in Washington,[ Col. O'Laughlin puffed deeply on a | white holder. “Of course, its ridicu- j i lous that Pravda should make silly. j charges about the Army and Navy, ! Journal,” he said. “If fighting for! j American lives is being pro-Hitlerite, j ! then I am pro-Hitlerite, but any one ; knows that’s not so.” The man who 35 years ago was j Assistant Secretary of State under I Elihu Root, spoke slowly. “The Rus sians are a magnificent lot, and ij have tremendous admiration for! them, but my first responsibility J is to defend and support our own ! country and its fighting men.” The militant publisher’s editorial which touched off a two-week con troversy with Pravda, and which brought a torrent of denunciation over the Moscow radio, suggested that "the shortest route to Berlin is, and always has been, through Poland.” Critical of w-hat he called Rus sia's “delay” in pressing the often-! sive through Poland, Col. O'Laugh- j lin charged that Russian Baltic and Balkan campaigns were "political diversions that delayed the execu-, tion of the plan necessary for the | prompt defeat of Germany.” ■ Recalling that Soviet newspapers | frequently had called for opening ! of a second front, Col. O’Laughlin i | said he believes American editors 1 have the same right to call atten tion to matters which affect this I Nation's war effort. Should Meet Obligation*. “Now W'e want them to discharge | their obligations to us as we dis charged our obligations to them.” he said, adding he believes develop ments may soon "insure military co-ordination which is so essential to German defeat and the saving of Allied lives.” On many occasions. Col. O’Laugh lin’s “inside track” in service mat* ! ters has catapulted the Journal's 1 name Into the headlines. His re velation a year ago of a reported plan to transfer Gen. Marshall to London to assume command of second-front operations is credited1 I” COL. JOHN CALLAN O’LAUGHLIN. —Star Staff Photo. ' in some quarters with having fore stalled such a move.

During the Russo-Japanese war he was sent to Russia. Re turning to Washington, he served the Chicago Herald and Chicago Tribune as correspondent here. Earlier he visited Japan on a mis sion to which he was assigned by President Theodore Roosevelt, whom he later served as secretary on a trip to Africa and Europe. Today on a desk in his office I stands an inkwell made from the foot of an elephant which fell vic tim to "Teddy’s” rifle on the African hunting tirp. It is engraved, “Theo dore Roosevelt to John Callan O’Laughlin.” Aide to General. In the World War he was a major assigned as an aide to Maj. Gen. George W. Goethals, acting Army quartermaster general, and later was with the intelligence section of the general staff in Prance. He also served as secretary to the United States Interallied Muni tions Council at Paris, of which Winston Churchill was the British member and Edward R. Stettinius, father of the present Secretary of State, the United States member. A native of Washington, Col. O’Laughlin lives at 2435 California street N.W. He walks the six blocks to his office at 1701 Connecticut avenue N.W., "for the exercise.” He likes horses and rode in Rock Creek Park last week, he said. But his real hobby is work—and a good fight. Right now he's look ing forward to what Pravda will say next. Score of Escaped Nazis Sought in Arizona By the Associated P»es». PHOENIX, Arlz., Dec. 25.—Ari zona lsw-enforcement officers are trying to round up 20 of 25 German prisoners who “slithered out like eels” yesterday from Papago Park I camp near here during the winter's heaviest rainstorm. H. R. Duffey, special agent in charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, said five prisoners were apprehended last night by Maricopa County officers. Police and sheriff officers were given detailed descriptions of the prisoners. J. L. Chennault, sheriff desk ser geant, said three of the prisoners brought to the local jail were equipped with Army knapsacks loaded with nearly 100 pounds of foodstuffs and extra clothing. The packs also were well supplied with cigarettes, it was said. The prisoners surrendered meekly at ranches where they had sought protection from the cold rains that swept the desert. Maryland U. Will Return To Semester Plan in 1945 Plans have been completed by the University of Maryland for the change-over from the present quar terly system to the semester system. The change will go into effect at the 1945 summer session, when a regular six-week course of studies will be offered. A full semester term will open that fall. The quarterly system was adopted In July, 1943, in order to co-ordinate the civilian curriculum with that of the Afmy Specialized Training Pro gram unit, which arrived at the uni versity at that time. With the dis continuance of the ASTP, the quar terly system is no longer necessary, officials explained. The return to the semester system will re-establish the traditional February and June graduations. _ Pupil Follows Orders, Sends Dad Report Card By the Associated Press. ALBUQUERQUE, N.
