H. WASHBURN Labor to Fight for Control of Profits Also Senators Conceed Brakes May Have to Be Applied '" on Wages WASHINGTON {A')- Legislation to limit profits on war contracts to a maximum of 6 per ccnl and to suspend federal statutes prescribing maximum hours of work was introduced in the House by Rep. Smith (D.-Va.) and Chairman Vinson, (D.-Ga.) of the House Naval Commillcc. The aclion followed reports by nearly a score of reprcsentalives who said .that they were receiving thousands "*f letters demanding immediate action of labor legislation. ^ASHINGTON -(/P)- Congressional friends of labor served notice Monday that they would fight to link a •Drastic limitalion of war profits with any legislative wage control- thai may be proposed by President Roosevelt as a resull of current sludies. Senator Hill of Alabama,-Ihe Dem- ocralic whip and Sen. Lafollelle pro., ,. Wiscpnsir^ .both, Ipng .time (supporters of la'bo'r, demanded' tliat any action taken to place a ceiling on wages would bo accompanied by legislation which would take awai most if not all of the profits on wa production contracts. ( t) Hill concecded that it might be nee cssary to apply brakes to wage in crease to prevent inflation but added that it was just as essential that wa profits be limited for the same reason. Lafollette said that while he wa •irrepared to accept wage controls i. they were accompanied by profit curbs he thought the placing of an arbitrary ceiling over wages might result in the disruption of the industrial machinery far beyond anything experienc- 4 od. ''While he declined to classify wages and profits in the same calagory, Chaii man George (D.-Ga.,) said the finance committee undoubtedly would study proposals to a super war tax on la government contracts when it con- pikers the new revenue bill. ^ Scnotor Byrd's Statement his ability to get the facts. 9 n B j l , H is not stnin e° that Senator Byrd should bo frequently quoted, for he is himself a newspaper publisher, and a good one—owning thc evening btnr. of Winchester (pop. 12,000). You know that Senator Byrd is H Derno- c'-Hlic- critic of thc administration. Well, here is what he said on March Senator Guffey of Pennsylvania today read in the Senate a statement by his constituenl, Mr. Jack Kelly of Philadelphia, who is the National Coordinator of Physical Fitness under thc Office of Civil- inn Defense. In this sUitemcnt, Mr. Kelly referred lo me as a "classic example of one of our national leaders boondoggling in Congress instead of focusing his attention on what is happening in Ihe Soulh Pacific and in Europe," and Ibis, merely because I exposed thc fact lhal Mr. Kelly had appointed a National Coordinator of Bowling, and expressed to Mr. Landis my disapproval of such an activily as a parl of Ihe Civilian Defense program, saying that unless the Office of Civilian Defense is stripped very promptly of such noncssential activilies, what little respect remains over thc country for this organization would completely disappear. Yesterday afternoon, the office of Senator Guffey asked me to accord Mr. Kelly an interview, and this I courteously did. During Ihis interview in my office I was very much astonished to be told by Mr. Kelly that not only had he appointed a Nalional Coordinator of Bowling but had appointed 61 other coordinators of .various, activities , in sports and recreation. I shall list some of them: National Badminton Coordinator R. Ward Starrclt, Chicago. National Archery Coordinator, H. A. McCunc, Pine Bluff, Arkansas. National Bag Punching Coordinator, Albert A. Nino, Upper Darby, Perm. National Billiards Coordinator. Charles C. Pctersbn, Chicago. National Canoeing Coordinator, Theo AJtcnder, Philadelphia Nalional Code. Ball Coordinator William E. Code, Chicago National Miniature Golf Coordinator, Frank Beal, New York City National Paddle Ball and Daddle Tennis Coordinator, also Frank Bcal, N. Y. National Wcighl-Lifling Coordinator, Robert Hoffman, York Penn. These are just a few, and there are others so fantaslic as lo be almosl unbelievable as being an integral parl of a program of national defense at a time of great peril to our country. The plan also provides lhal every national coordinator of each aclivily will appoint a regional coordinator for Ihe 9 regional districts, which would make, in all, 610 main coordinators, and then local coordinators will bo established in every communily, Thc problem then will be to coordinate Ihe coordinators which can only be done al the expense of great effort and public funds, which should be utilized for national defense. Mr. Kelly further told me that he believed congress should appropriate one million dollars annually for these physical fitness activities, and then said thai unless an appropriation of at least $300,000 annually is made, he would resign, which he seemed lo think would be a groat catastrophe to the country. This was an admission that the effort will be made to instilule a giganlic plan of regimentation for physical fitness and recreation as a part of thc national defense program. This I do not believe is a proper function of civilian defense. The necessary results can be accomplished through tjhe public schools and Ihe various otrter agencies lhat are now interested in the improvement of public health. In this lime of war and greal peril such as we face today, it seems to me we need less of badminton, billiards, and similar aclivities, so we may devote our total and undivided effoH to winning the war. As Mr. Kelly refers lo my in- tcrcst in the Pacific, may I ask him if he Ihinks thc playing of games at home inspires thc American boys who are fighting under MacArthur for their lives and our securily and who have no lime for such tilings. I think Hie chief obligalion of this counlry today is to produce the implements of war necessary to prolecl our boys already abroad and to bring thc 3 Slightly Hurt In Auto Wreck One Automobile *i Completely Burns Near Hope Three persons were painfully but not seriously injured late Sunday iifiht when their automobiles collid- [,an aboul 4 miles wcsl of Hope on highway 67. Grovcr Ward and Miss Tressa Urbin, of Hope, suffered bruises and burns while J. Cooksie Morgan, oil field worker of Prcscoll, driver of thc sc- ijfond car sustained cuts and bruises aboul the head. Both cars caught fire and Ihe Ward automobile burned completely, while Ihe other blaze was put out. The Morgan automobile was badly lorn up. *Slalo Policeman Prilchell investigated the accident.

Warns Citizens Germans Admit to Look Out for Mad Dogs Seven Persons Bitten in Hope, Police to Kill All Stray Dogs Seven pei-sons in the west side of Hope have been bitten by dogs, presumed to be mad, during the past few days and police issued a warning to all dog-owners inside the city to keep their canines up or have them shot. A campaign started early Monday morning to kill every stray dog inside the city. A cow just outside the city limits was bitten by a dog several days ago and tests postively show signs of hydrophobia, police said. All persons bitten have taken hydrophobia shots except one, police said, ;md urged citizens to exercise caution by keeping well away from stray dogs, and report to authorities whenever they sight one.

J * Central Front Lines Broken Also Hint Aircraft Carrier Operating in Atlantic Ocean By the Associated Press Thc war on Ibis side of the world was characterized Monday by such varied developments as a British smash at an Axis base in Ihe caslernmost Mediterranean, Germany's admission that her central front in Russia had been pierced and a hint that a German aircraft carrier is on thc loose in the Atlantic. Tucked away in thc Hiller' command's regular communique was .this senlcncc: "A British merchantship of 2,000-tons was sunk by a German bombing plane in the central Atlan- lic." , There was no elaboralion. It may have worded as tersely as possibly for its alarm value, but a face value it indicated presence of an aircraft carrier in an area far beyond the operal- plcs aid," police asserled.

Coinciding with the sinking German admission of Red army's driving power was a Moscow reporl via Stockholm lhal Russian parachulisls had caplured forlificd posilions behind Ihe German line near Smolensk and had taken two towns in the Vyazma sector near Smolensk. German attempts to mop up parachutists had failed, the report said. Over the week-end British warships and planes according to an Ilalian communique altacked the island ol Rhodes, easternmosl Mediterranean foolhold of the Axis, just off the Turkish coast. The RAF at Cairo following up tfe Ilalian announccmenl merely saii "that "objectives at Ma'ritza and Calati on the 49 by 21 mile island were attacked by bombing planes Saturday night." Other "objectives al Candia on Ihe Axis occupied Greek island of Crete wesl and soulh of Rhodes also were bombed. The mosl astonishing of the latesl reports from the war in Russia was Berlin's bald admissi6n that the Red army had reached the German line On the central front during a heavy snowstorm and that "heavy defensive fighting developed." That appeared in a special commun- ique of the Hitler command while the regular announcement admitted that the Russians had renewed attacks against German forces of the Kerch Peninsula in Ihe Crimea.
