Lovett, William Dodd and Goodwin Watson sue for their government salaries. The jobs of Lovett, Secretary, of the Virgin Islands, and Dodd and Watson in the Federal Communications Commission, were abolished by Congress. However, Secretary of Interior Ickes, who is Lovett's boss, and the FCC are going to make a scrap of it. Ickes merely shifted Lovett over from secretary to assistant to the governor of the Virgin Islands. If his check isn't forthcoming, he'll sue on the grounds that Congress has no constitutional right to take the action it.did. Out of it may come a decision 'which will determine whether bureaus, departments and agencies have the right to employ any one they wish —and whether Congress, aside from its senatorial approval'of presidential appointments, has anything to say about it at all. In the gossip corners here they are saying that there is a congressional ground swell to get rid of Secretary of the Treasury Morgen- thau and give the job to Economic Stabilizer Fred M. Vinson. Until it gets, into the open don't pay too much attention to it. At one time or nother, almost every member '.of IB President's cabinet has been 'fired" by rumor. Morgenthau ever has been popular "on the lill," but the same could be said f several others, who are still around or have been given bigger obs. The latest rumor probably grew iut of the kicking around the House* Ways and Means Committee has given the treasury's tax bill pro- >osals, but it shouldn't be forgot- en that Vinson has openly backed hose proposals to the hilt. Military circles here are positive that there soon will be another Aerial Duel Is Looked for in N.WJrishGame Chicago. Nov. 11 —(/P)—That fellow on the spot is Otto Graham. 190 pound left halfback of the Northwestern Wildcats, who is nearing the close of a brilliant three year career as one of the greatest passers in Western Con ference history. Otto and his mats tangle with the Nation's no. 1 touchdown machine, Notre Dame, next Saturday at Evanston. He's on the spot be cause the clash, 23rd in a series dating back to 1889, is being billcc as a passing duel between him anc Johnny Lujack. the freshman sen sation who stepped into Angelo Berteilli's shoes and found a perfect fit. Comparatively speaking. Graham's will be pretty much a solo effort, %vhile the Notre Dame youngster will have a heap of help. Frank Leahy's 18-year-old quarterback find will have a supporting cast which has rolled up .a gain of 3,284 yards in its seven consecutive triumphs, topping the nation with an average of 479.1 yards per contest. In their march toward the National Championship the Irish have piled up 287 points to their opponents' 31. Only Bill Daley of Michigan has scored on the ground against the first string Notre Dame line. He did it once. With the return of the ailing Julie Rykovich at halfback and last Saturday's unveiling of another frosh star, Bob Kelly, the Irish coast along with the greatest collection of ball carriers in the country. Of course, there'll be 10 other fellows helping Graham. The Wildcats fondly hope to upset the Irish and, keyed to a high pitch, they can be counted upon to give their best in an attempt. It is extremely doubtful, however, that their best will be gooc enough. Graham is considered Northwestern's only offensive threat following the transfer of navy trainees Herman Frickey and Don Buffmire.

However, the hold-thc- linc forces, headed by "Little President" Jimmy Byrnes, Vinson and even the president himself, arc expected to fight so hard that the •'cracks" will be only small ones. Word is being handed out here to business men that even if the most optimistic predictions of our military experts about the end of the war should come true, they may expect at least two more boom" years of war production. Latest bolster for the opinion is the navy's decision to build three super-super aircraft carriefs. Washington — Easily the most amazing war bond drive ever conducted in this country was the "Buy A Bomber" campaign sponsored by the Treasury Department and the Prison Industries Branch of WPB. The final figures have just come across the desk of Maury Maverick, director of WPB's Prison Industries. Approximately 120,000 inmates of prisons in 46 states and the District of Columbia bought $983,000 worth of war bonds, 353 per cent of their quota, and more than enough to buy three bombers. This doesn't represent anything like the total volume of war bonds bought by prisoners. It is merely the amount purchased in the three weeks' "Buy A Bomber" drive. Only two states (Idaho and Georgia) failed to report.

Rip Sevvell was turned down by the By BOB MEYER United Press Staff Correspondent Chicago, Nov. 11 UP—For a plavcr who was ready to quit pro football in disgust two years ago, Sid Luckman, the apple - strudcl eater from Brooklyn, is doing all right today. Luckman, the roly-poly quarterback of the Chicago Bears, is walking away with national pro league passing honors, even to the extent of outdistancing Washington's Sammy Baugh by 417 yards. When the Bears defeated Green Bay, 21-7. in rain and mud last Sunday, it was Luckman who keyed the boar attack by completing eight of 16 pass attempts for i 186 yards and two touchdowns, I handling tho soggy pigskin as if it | were a baton. His performance against the Packers brought his year's total to 1 70 completions in 126 attempts for I 1,375 yards. Luckman has thrown 16 touchdown passes to Baugh's I and averaged .555 to "Slingin 1 Sammy's" .540 per cent. After the Bear-Green Bay game, the Packers agreed to a man that Luckman was the "most outstanding quarterback in the business." The Luckman-Baugh rivalry will get a test Nov. 21 when the Bears play at Washington. Strictly from Brooklyp, Luckman attracted national attention while playing for Erasmus Hall high schooU He declined offers from many colleges to attend Columbia | because he wanted to play under 'Lou Little.

They were picked by three men who know their prison.-; nd prisoners and the three names re full of significance. When that ignificance is understood, it is doubtful if any bomber crews fly- ng today will be prouder of the names their ships sail under. The No 1 bomber was named for Arthur St. Germain, a prisoner at Norfolk who, with 40 others, volunteered to undergo a dangerous ' ?lasma test conducted by U. S. i lavy physicians. It cost St. Germain his life, but as a result, the lives of thousands of soldiers and sailors are being saved today. "Striped Lady" is a prison jargon title, picked in recognition of the splendid contribution to the war effort being made by the inmates of women's prisons. "Fighting Felon" symbolizes the wish of most prisoners that they might personally strike at the enemies of democracy. Thus has Maverick written into his record another chapter of one of the most fascinating stories of the war effort— the voluntary contribution being made by the _ men and womep ordinarily considered L social outcasts.

Weather Slows Allied Push in Italian Hills By EDWARD KENNEDY Allied Headquarters, Algiers, Nov. 12 (IP) — Extremely bad weather and difficult terrain in front of the Germans' winter defense line slowed the Allied drive in Italy to limited gains, Allied headquarters announced today. A one-mile advance by Lt. Gen. Mark W. Clark's Americans of the ~ Lt . Fifth Army and the capture of one • more commanding feature on the slopes of Mount Camino near Mignano at the western end of the Allied line were announced. Gen. Sir Bernard L. Montgomery's Eighth Army engaged in sharp patrol t :. skirmishing near Acquaviva in the central sector and exchanged artillery fire with the Germans across thq Sangro river in the cast.

Despite the slow Allied march, the Germans apparently had little hope of holding Gacta very long. Aerial reconnaissance showed they had blown up the oil tanks at that west coast port nine miles behind the present lines. Reconnaissance also brought back evidence they had carried out new demolitions at Leghorn, sinking two more ships in Leghorn harbor in an effort to close its northern entrance. The Germans apparently had decided to dispense with *•' the use of Leghorn even for coastal shipping and sealed the harbor to impede any Allied raids or coast- hopping landings. There also was widespread Allied air activity over the front and ^.behind the lines. American invaders blew up an ammunition dump, attacked a bridge, strafed a locomotive and destroyed four trucks near Cassino, eight miles beyond Mignano. Warhawks attacked several strong points. Bostons and Baltimores blew up a chemical works at Bussi, 23 miles northeast of Avczzano, and South African and British fighter- bombers plastered numerous gun positions.

This assurance is, however, qualified: 1. The supply of tires and other essential rubber goods will be short for a long time. 2. The synthetic rubber production program is being completed far later than wished for. It was 76 per cent completed as of Nov. 1. 3. Still ahead are the product- on problems of expanding the ubbcr industry to process syn- hotic rubber, and expanding of Hied industries to produce suffi- icnt rayon cord for heavy duty ires, carbon blacks and other natcrials necessary in the making if rubber goods. 4. The next six to nine months vill be the most difficult. 5.

All figures following are in long tons: London, Nov. 12 —(/P) —Reuters reported from Moscow today that the Red Army had stormed to a point ten miles northeast of the western Ukrainian rail center of Zhitomir on the last north-south railroad held by the Germans in the Western Ukraine. The Germans were said in various Russian dispatches to have applied the torch to the Crimean port of Kerch, a city of 105,000 invested from two sides by Russian amphibious forces shuttled across the narrow Kerch Straits from the Caucasus. The Moscow radio declared the German line in the Gomel sector of While Russia near the famed Pripct marshes "has been broken," BBC said. It was in this area the Germans said yesterday the Russians were attacking with numerous rifle divisions, masses of tanks and planes. The reported Russian gain in the Zhitomir area would mean an overnight advance of Gen. Nikolai Va- tutin's First Ukrainian Army of 11 miles and place the Russians within 70 miles of the old Polish frontier. , , ; Henry C.

WLBSeeksMore Power to Fight Next Coal Crisis By JOSEPH A. LOFTUS Washington, Nov. 12 (/P) A majority of the War Labor Board believes another coal crisis is possible and, in effect, pleaded poverty of authority today to deal with it. Industry members of the board addressed themselves directly to Congress in a statement strongly urging immediate consideration of amendments to the War Labor Disputes Act "to require responsibility of unions and to provide additional protection for workers, employers and the public against those who misuse the power presently permitted." The three public members who approved the Ickes-Lewis agreement a week ago said in their formal opinion in the case that the possibility of new labor troubles "together with the shock experienced by the whole country as a result of the United Mine Workers' defiance of the no-strike pledge, must of necessity bring into the forefront of consideration and dis cussion the whole question of the responsibility of unions for antisocial acts and of the capacity of government as at present constituted to present such acts." WLB spokesmen said this was an expression of the board's feel- Jap Claims Are False; Marines Secure Position 1044 205,000 81,000 818,000 1,104,000 953,000 Balance in stockpile, Dec. 31 205,000 151,000 The figures show the dwindling stockpile, in spite of vastly increased production, and indicate that any unexpected demand for military rubber, or a breakdown in civilian rubber-borne transportation, would bankrupt the works. The supply of scrap rubber is more than adequate, svith some 745,000 tons on hand and a monthly usage of only 35,000 tons. The old tire collection brought in 12 million carcasses, but a part of them are of such loss- quality that they will have to be burned. Getting by involves the use of every casing that can be salvaged and rctreadcd. Use of reclaimed rubber has been largely abandoned. The German communique asserted Nazi and Rumanian troops had halted Russian attempts to extend their bridgeheads around Kerch in the eastern Crimea and had thwarted efforts to reinforce the Red Army already on the eastern shores of the Black, Sea peninsula, Berlin said also., the Germans had beaten 'back a Russian effort to cross the Dnieper river in the marshes around Nikopol, where the Germans hold their lone bridgehead on (he east bank of the river. "In the area of Kiev, the battle in the depths of the salient is con linuing with undiminished violence," the German communique said of the major Russian attack 60 to 75 miles west of the Ukrainian capital, "southwest of the city, strong Soviet attacks collapsec while further south German counterattacks succeeded in retaking several villages. "North of Chernigov (in the Gomel area), the impetus of enemy attacks decreased as a result of heavy casualties. Nevertheless, there was embittered fighting." The Germans reported heavy Russian attacks repulsed northwest of Smolensk and near Nevel where the Russians "tried to widen their salient, especially north and south of the city." SYNTHETIC CAMELBACK The report brings out that passenger car size tires and camelback for recapping are now being made entirely of synthetic rubber, that medium-sized tires arc now being made of from 10 per cent to 30 per cent synthetic, but that all heavy-duty, high-speed tires in the largest sixes, and the larger airplane tires,' must still be made from natural rubber only. Of the "feed stock and other materials going into synthetic rubber production, there are reported to be adqua.le supplies of jenzol, used in making styrcne, md of alcohol. But because the sutylcnes from petroleum are used 'or both high-octane gasoline and jutadienc for synthetic rubber, his supply situation will be light. Colonel Dewey reports that it is still too early to predict what the ultimate post-war costs of synthetic rubber are going to be. Certain plants with, low-cost raw materials hold out hope for Buna S rubber — of which 735,000 of the i',50,000 tons annual U.

De Marigny Is Acquitted of Murder Charge By E.V.W. JONES Nassau, Bahamas, Nov. 12 .(/P) — Alfred de Marigny is a free man today, and the mystery which surrounds the slaying of Sir Harry Oakes is more baffling than ever. A Bahamas supreme court jury decided by a nine to three vote last night it was not the handsome do Marigny who beat the aged multi-millionaire on the head last July 8 and set fire to his bedroom and bed in an apparent effort to hide the crime, w*l But in acquitting the husband of Oakes' daughter Nancy, jurors recommended he be deported — a suggestion which apparently has no legal standing. The 12 picked men were unanimous in saying they did not want him to remain in this colony. Once the "not guilty" verdict was announced to cheering spectators who jammed the tiny courtroom, police officials again were confronted by an unsolved killing with clues which have grown colder during the four months dc Marigny was under arrest on a murder charge. i A reporter asked Attorney General Eric Hallinau whether a new investigation would be started. "Nothing as far as I am concerned," he replied. "It's completely closed, call it a day." Police Commissioner Frederick Lancaster echoed his statement. The end of Nassau's widely-discussed murder trial was as spectacular as were the 22 days of testimony and arguments. The jury had retired aA 5:27 p. m. after hearing a long charge by Chief Justice Sir Oscar Bedford Daly, who set the stage for the Supply Lines Leading Into Italy Blasted London, 'Nov.

The RAF blow was "heavy anc well concentrated" at Cannes, only 15 miles east of Antheor, target of the Thursday daylight assault by the Mediterranean-based Libera tors and Flying Fortresses. Other Mediterranean-based for mations surmounted the Alps to blast the important Nazi bearing factory at Annecy, nestled in the mountains 30 miles south of the Swiss frontier and 40 miles west of the Italian frontier. Allied bombers have hit repeatedly at similar plants in Germany and Italy, in an effort to end German production of this vital war product. Las ntight's return blow at the Riviera railway emphasized the importance with which the Allies view this rail link as the result of damage to the Brenner Pass and the Mt.

McMUTRY Pearl Harbor, T. H., Nov. 12 (/P)— Uncle Sam is prepared to slice himself a Thanskgiving feast from the Japanese defense perime ter. That is the definiate conclusion drawn here from the Armistice Day address of Admiral Chester W. Nimitz, commander in chief of the Pacific fleet,' who last night told a nationwide radio audience: "Our time has come to attack Henceforth we propose to give the Jap no rest. All hands in the Pa cific . . . Share this restflve We have no illusions aboul the op position we will encounter or the osses we must endure . . . We see beginnings of a new victory." The admiral, in his boWest declaration of the war, almost called his next shot. Said he: "Our northern flank in the Aleutians has been secured. In the South and Southwest Pacific in lensified attacks by all forces have placed the Jap in a precarious position. In other areas he has been relatively unmolested but hence forth we propose to give him no rest." That draws a clear picture. —War in Pacific ing that it may crisis arises. need another State Revenue Inspector to Tour County Revneue Inspector I. L.

If it should be There are two "other areas" —the Central Pacific and Japan proper. This conclusion therefore is logical: The Pacific command is planning an early invasion of one or more of Japan's well defended Pacific bases. Admiral Nimitz strengthened this inference with his conclusive remarks: "We know that our ships and our planes alone cannot destroy the enemy. The Jap has dug himself in. We must-land; and dig him- out."; •'The United States does not yet seem ready to attempt to dig the Japanese out of their homeland where presumably they still have the bulk of their naval strength. The United States does, however, have the greatest fleet in history in the Pacific as evidenced by the multi-carrier raids on Marcus, Nauru, Tarawa and Wake islands within seven weeks in September and October.

The Nov. 1-2 battle was the one in which American warships, interr cepting an enemy task force of J.2 heading for the Bougainville.beach- head, sank a cruiser and four destroyers and damaged two cruisers and two destroyers without loss to themselves.

Arkansan on Plane Shot Down by Japs By NORMAN BELL An Aleutian Island Base, Sept. 15 (/P)— (Delayed) — The squadron leader's four-motored bomber went down but its guns kept blazing at the attacking Zeros until it hit the sea. "We could see the tail-gunner still firing when the tail broke off," said the special radio man of another plane, Cpl. Charles Hopp of Chicago. Cpl. Hopp, himself wounded, was telling about the last gallant fight of Major Frank T, Gash of Fresno, Calif., the squadron leader. Major Gash's Liberator bomber was lost in a raid from an Aleutian base Sept. 11 on Japan's Para- mushiru island. The Japanese Zeros swarmed to center their attack on his plane as the Liberators started on the flight back to the Aleutians after dropping their bombs. "It went down with one motor out and another on fire, said Cpl. Hopp, who was in another bomber which maneuvered to shield Major Gash's crippled plane. Major Gash's Liberator was one that failed to return to their base from the raid but it was believed that the others reached land. Members of Gash's crew includ ed Technical Sergeant J. Canno- way.

These, he said, have been many, including the biggest food-crop year in American history. The proclamation read: "God's help to us has been great in this year of March toward world wide liberty.
