At hearings which lasted nine months and ended in May, the commissioners saw demonstra tions of three systems, widely dif feient in principle, developed by Radio Corp. of America, the Co lumbia Broadcasting System and Color Television, Inc. ■yesterday, Color Television, Inc., asked the commission to reopen the hearings for another new sys tem it call uniflex. Only a month ago, General Electric announced it had de veloped another new system, called “frequency interlace.” General Electric, however, did not seek to reopen the hearings. FCC officials made it clear today that the commission has no in tention of holding up its report. But there was no certainty that tiie report, when it comes, will de cide flatly and finally in favor of one of the three systems demon suated at the hearings.

But not to Joseph R. Branson. Mr. Branson, 60. colored em ploye of the Navy Department, is leaving his position as head of the mail room of the Bureau of Medicine and Surgery today after 32 years of Government service. He will take with him a letter of commendation from Rear Admiral Clifford A. Swanson, Surgeon Gen eral of the Navy. How’s Mr. Branson taking his retirement? “Not so good,” he lamented. “I’ve been walking around the streets trying to figure it out. I want to keep working at some thing, and I will. Music is and has always been my major enjoyment. I’ll follow that field.” If he does, Mr. Branson will Britons on Move About 470,000 people from Brit ain have emigrated to common wealth countries since the war, London reports.

He went overseas in World War I with the 368 Buffaloes, a Negro band unit attached to the 92nd Infantry Division, which saw duty in France. Back home he settled into his Navy Department job and also began organizing a band to tour Europe, which he did in 1919 and 1920. Finding the organization of bands appealing and enjoyable he organized and directed several here in Washington—strictly on his own time.

It calls for brave men, plenty of arms and supplies m the field ... and a successful fight against inflation by every one of us at home. With men dying in battle, it’s time to get tough with ourselves! We must pay for the defense of freedom. •. and we must stay strong at home as well. This two-front job makes it more important now than ever to protect the dollar's buying power ... to fight the forces of inflation, the enemy's Sixth Column... and to make sure our soldiers get everything they need! T# do Iff calls for tough minds, tough decisions, and tight bolts 1. We’re up against the fact that piling arms production on top of civilian production calls for billions of added dollars. For this we need a sound economy, and we can’t have a sound economy without a strong dollar. 2. We must decide to do away with things that are luxu ries in the light of today’s needs—The luxury of taking it easy... of spending freely ... of letting Government do for us what we can do for ourselves or do without... of living with the Government Budget far out of balance. 3. Beyond this, we must recognize that saving is more important than ever. Greater saving is vital in many ways: It makes fimds available for new tools and factories... for the increased production America must have. It takes “extra money” cut of circulation, keeps inflation from weakening the nation’s buying power, protects the value of your present personal savings. Let’s always remember: There are two essentials to winning a war. One is victory in the field. The other is making sure our economy is not being bled to death. * * * The life insurance companies bring you this message be cause of its importance to all Americans.
