Benter Granted Delay
To Prepare Case in
Auto Sale Charge
United States Commissioner
Needham C. Turnage today granted
a continuance until September 17
in the case of Charles Benter. direc
tor of the Metropolitan Police De
partment Band, charged with sell
ing a 1946 Pontiac to a merchant
seaman here Wednesday for $1,120
more than the ceiling price.
The continuance fallowed “pres
entation of a petition by Robert E.
Lynch, attorney for the band leader,
who said he had been out of town
yesterday and required additional
time to prepare the case.
The maximum penalty for Ben
ter's alleged violation of Office of
Price Administration ceilings would
be a year’s imprisonment and a $500
fine, according to OPA enforcement
attorney Grahame Walker.
In addition, the seaman who pur
chased the car, Second Steward
Joseph E. Sissler, 22, of 3612 Fortieth
place, Colmar Manor, Md., may sue
for treble damages on the amount
of overcharge, it was revealed.
Mr. Sissler told OPA officials he
had paid $2,300 for the car, instead
of the $1,179 ceiling price.
Arrested yesterday by OPA Agents
Dan Jones and Marshall Miller,
Benter was arraigned before Com
missioner Turnage and pleaded not
guilty. Bond was set at $500 and
the case was continued until this
morning to permit the band leader
to confer with counsel.
Met at rramc uigni.
Mr. Sissler told a reporter he met
Benter Tuesday, when his car drew
alongside the band leader’s Pontiac
to await the changing of a traffic
light at Sixth and N streets N.W.
Mr. Sissler asserted he leaned out
the w-indow of his car and shouted
to Benter, “do you want to sell your
car?”
According to Mr. Sissler, the
driver of the other vehicle replied,
“yes, pull over to the curb,” and
after some discussion they agreed
on a price of $2,300.
Wednesday, Mr. Sissler continued.
Benter called and told him to come
to a music shop in the 1300 block
of L street N.W., where, he asserted,
he gave the band leader a $1,500
check and $800 in cash.
Then, he declared, he went to
the OPA to notify authorities of
the terms of the sale.
Mr. Sissler said he did not know
the identity of the owner of the
car when he approached Benter to
make the purchase.
Sells Old Car Under Ceiling.
His own car, a 1936 Cadillac tour
ing model which he said was used
by President Roosevelt for his 1937
inaugural parade, was then sold to
an unidentified person for $810,
which, the OPA said, is below ceil
ing price for that model.
Mr. Sissler, who said he had never
bought a car in this manner before,
reported he had not obtained any
refund of money so far.
“I understand I can keep the car
now,” he declared, “because I have
the title.”
The seaman seaid he intended to
return to New York to get back on
a ship as soon as the car purchase
is straightened out.
Grand Jury to Get Cases.
Assistant United States Attorney
Charles B. Murray said today he
expects to present information to
the District grand jury after Sep
tember 15 against a firm and one
or more individuals for alleged ceil
ing violations in the sale of used
automobiles.
Mr. Murray said he is going on
a vacation and expects to present
the information on his return. He
added, however, it was possible that
some other member of the United
States attorney’s staff may take
over the cases before then.
The alleged offenses are similar,
it was indicated, to those on which
nine individuals were indicted July
1. Alleged ceiling violations in the
July indictments ranged from $50
to more than $800 in one instance.
American Held in Bremen
For Killing Dock Worker
•y th« AuociaUd ftm
BREMEN, Germany, Aug. 30 —
The American military government
today said a United States War De
partment employe killed a dock
worker and wounded another during
a raid recently and so incensed the
population of Bremen that a “dis
astrous situation" was narrowly
averted.
The American, a former Navy
lieutenant, was being held pending
full investigation and 24 Germans
were under arrest, suspected of theft.
The military government said the
War Department employe fired dur
ing a melee while security troops
were raiding the docks in an effort
to halt the theft of food packages
sent to Germany by friend in the
United States. The statement con
tinued:
"It can safely be said that the
presence of mind of a few labor
leaders and a forthright statement
by Mayor Kaisen, published in the
Weserkurier (a Bremen newspaper),
saved what might have been a dis
astrous situation.”
'Sarid dun' Slows
Weapons Dropped
From Planes
By the Astocioted Pre»s
The invention of & U-shaped re
coil tube firing “bullets” of sand to
slow the fall of parachuting' jeeps,
guns and other heavy equipment
dropped for airborne forces was an
nounced yesterday by the Army
Air Forces.
The tube contains an explosive
charge in the bent portion. This
is set off Just before the equipment
lands, driving containers of sand
toward the ground from the tube’s
two open end^. The recoil—like
that of a shotgun—is exerted in the
opposite direction.
The recoil, said the announce
ment, almost stops the heaviest
loads. What remains of the drop
is like “falling off a chair.”
It added that a paratrooper, who
with full equipment weighs about
300 pounds, could decelerate with a
"sand gun” weighing only 20 pounds
Another slowing device found suc
cessful in tests at Wright Field,
Ohio, is a small explosive charge
placed between heavy falling loads
and their parachutes. When the
charge is detonated, the shock wave
ef the blast is exerted upward
against the underside of the In
cited chut^nd works like a brake

Society and hopes, besides possibly
earning some prize money for that
society, to call attention to “this

The rules provide that the winner
must reach Cleveland before 6 p.m.,
but every one expected the first
planes to arrive in the middle of the
afternoon program of Army, Navy
and Marine Corps flying demonstra
tions, aerial acrobatics, speeches and
music.
The record to beat in the Benaix
race is 282 miles an hour average
made by Frank Fuller of San Fran

vaged from military surpluses will
add 100 miles to that average.
National Air Races Entrants j
Prepare for Thompson Event
CLEVELAND. Aug. 30 The
National Air Races open here today
with the arrival of the Bendix
Trophy flyers and a contest between
six women pilots who will take off
at 4:15 p.m. in ^6-lap race around

—probably the fastest time ever
made around a closed course. He
completed one lap around the rec
tangular 30-mile course at an aver
| age speed just over 410 miles an
! hour.
Cleveland was jammed with vis
itors. Traffic policemen were put
on a 12-hour day, some 2,000 signs
to direct motorists were posted, hun
dreds of residents in the airport
region were eager to have autos
ruin their lawns for $1.50 each, and
space for several thousand small
airplanes was available at 21 air
ports within 25 miles of Cleveland.
Other Flyers Qualify.

Virginia Bruce's Husband
Faces Army Pass Inquiry
By th» Associated Press
FORT LEWIS, Wash., Aug. 30.—
Pvt. Ali M. Ipar, the Turkish-born
Hollywood scenario writer who was
separated from Actress Virginia
Bruce by the Army briefly on his
wedding eve, was under order today
to cut short his honeymoon and
rush back to Fort Lewis.
Maj. Gen. Paul W. Kendall, Fort
Lewis commanding officer, an
nounced the bridegroom would face
an inquiry as to how he obtained
three consecutively dated three-day
passes. The general sent telegrams
to Pvt. Ipar and Army officers at
both Los Angeles and Las Vegas,
Nev.
The general said the first, and
unquestioned, pass expired yester
day, but “we won’t know whether he
is absent without leave until we
question him.”
Gen. Kendall told newsmen: “The
passes presumably are legal on their
face. If they were legally and in
nocently obtained by him, through
some Inadvertence of a company
clerk, first sergeant or officer, he
will not be absent without leave.”

'AFL Urges Employers
To Open Books as Aid
In Wage Negotiation
•y th« Associoud Pr«i
The American Federation of Labor
called upon employes today to show
their financial records to the unions
as an aid to collective bargaining.
Last fall and winter there was a
Nation-wide controversy on this sub
ject when Walter Reuther of the
CIO Auto Workers demanded that
the General Motors Corp. open its
books.
The AFfc. ih^he September. 1946,
issue of its publication "Labor's
Monthly SurvejC’ said it proposes to!
"speed production, avoid strikes and
negotiate wage increases within price
ceilings.”
Employers’ Co-operation Asked.
But it declared this policy will
succeed only if employers are "ready j
to meet us half way.”
The AFL argument goes as follows:
1. Some industries, like foods,
chemicals, paper products, trade and
service, are earning "substantial
profits, varying from 12 per cent to
more than 20 per cent on net worth.’ j
2. Wages are low in some of those
industries and many companies can
afford a wage increase without rais
ing prices. "Now is the time to lift
their workers to a decent level.”
3. In other industries, such as
automobiles and electric equipment.:
some companies are operating at a
deficit.
"Workers Need Facts.”
Then the AFL said:
"These records show that workers
need the facts if they are to fcr-i
mulate policies intelligently, make!
realistic wage demands, negotiate
wage increases within price ceilings
and avoid strikes.
"We say to American employers:!
We have offered to co-operate with
ypu as partners in improving pro-!
duction. Show us the facts so we
can know the results of our efforts.
Give us production records so we
can watch the increases due to our
daily work. Give us access to finan
cial reports so we can see the in
come resulting from the joint pro
duction process. Share with usi
equitably as increasing income
makes wage increases possible.”
ICC Probes Laxity
In Freight Car Traffic
The Interstate Commerce Com- j
mission is launching an investigation
of the handling of empty freight
cars by railroads, acting on a request
of ODT Director J. Monroe Johnson
who yesterday warned the country
faces the "greatest transportation
crisis In 20 years.”
ICC especially is interested In
looking into the situation of freight
cars not owned by the carriers using
them.
Mr. Johnson said he had received
numerous letters from shippers com
plaining of the laxity of carriers in
moving empty cars.
He urged, as a partial solution,
that the daily hiring charge for
freight cars, other than tank and
refrigerator cars, be increased from
$1.15 to $2 during the existing
shortage.
Officials say the transportation
crisis does not involve passenger
service.
Mr. Johnson says the real pinch
will come about October 15 and con
tinue until next May, and that it
may force a closing down of some
factories unable to move their
products.
32 of 38 Countries Meet
World Banjr Deadline
• y the Associated Press
The World Bank announced to
day that 32 of Its 38 member na
tions have paid their full capital
subscriptions due last Saturday,
putting $145,776,500 in the bank’s
fund.
The bank's statement said that
Norway, China, Greece, Poland,
Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia de
ferred payments under a provision
allowing war-damaged members to
postpone payments of one-half per
cent of their subscription until five
years after the bank commences
operations.
The payments due last Saturday
were 2 per cent of the members’
assigned subscriptions and had to
be paid in United States dollars or
in gold.
The multibillion-dollar interna
tional bank for reconstruction and
development disclosed that 36 of
its 38 member nations already had
contributed a total of $243,986,500
Of its total capital of $7,670,000,000.
Only Czechoslovakia and Yugo
slavia have failed to pay any of the
initial 2 per cent of subscriptions
due last Saturday. Both countries
petitioned the bank's directors to
permit postponement because their
gold reserves “are still seized or im
mobilized because of the war.’’
Greenbelt Man Arrested

Justice Aide Urges
U. S. Civil Rights Law
■y th» Associated Press
WINSTON-SALEM. N. C., Aug.
30.—Assistant Attorney General
Lamar Caudle called today for legis
lation that would let the Federal
Government "act vigorously” when;
local authorities fail to prosecute |
civil rights violations.
At present, the head of the Justice1
Department's criminal division said
in addressing the North Carolina
Bar Association, the Government,
has "little power or authority to
deal with the social and govern
mental situations which give rise to
civil rights problems.”
Mr. Caudle, who also is national
president of the Federal Bar As
sociation, made no direct reference
to any specific incident. The civil
rights section of his division is in
vestigating the postwar resurgence
of the Ku Klux Klan and the recent
lynching of four Negroes near Mon
roe, Ga.
Mr. Caudle said mob violence "or
any attack upon basic rights should
be a local problem of primary con
cern to local citizens, to be handled
in the community in which it occurs
by local officers.”
But, he added, "where a local
authority neglects or fails to act
your Federal Government should
have the power and authority to
act vigorously in the district where;
the offense is committed.”
Nazi Generals' Claims
Are Blasted by U. S.
•y the Associated Press
NUERNBERG, Aug. 30.—Brig.
Gen. Telford Taylor of the Amer
ican prosecution staff accused de
fense counsel for the German Gen
eral Staff and High Command today
with introducing a mass of irrele
vant material before the Interna
tional Military Tribunal.
In a summation against Nazi mill- 1
tarists, Gen. Taylor said it was un
true that German generals had no
voice in determining strategy, and
asserted that Adolf Hitler always!
called in the general staff before de
ciding on new military plans.
“Military leaders not only partic
ipated in the plans, they were de
lighted with the results,” he said.
“They were afraid of getting into!
war before they adequately prepared,
but they wanted a big army and
they wanted strategic and military
advantages which Germany derived
from Hitler’s successes.”
Gen. Taylor also derided defense
statements that the generals could
not resign, pointing out that in fact
several did resign during the war.

Slim Hopes Seen for End
Of Sugar Rationing in 747
•y the Associated Press
The Agriculture Department said
today no general improvement in
the sugar supply situation is pos
sible until the 1947 Caribbean
crops—particularly the Cuban and
Puerto Rican crops—begin to move
to market in large volume about six
months from now.
Officials said chances "appear
rather slim” that supplies will in
crease sufficiently to permit aban
donment of consumer rationing next
year.
This forecast was made in a state
ment announcing that 1,187,000
short tons of sugar will be allocated
for civilian distribution in the
October - December quarter. This!
compares with 1,147,000 allocated for
the corresponding quarter last year.
Sixteen studios in Russia are now
producing motion pictures.
