There's a speed and finality about courts martial which the militaristic mind can appreciate, whereas a civil interna- Reds Holding Lines Despite New Attacks tional court would hold few ter- ;rors. One is impelled to this thought by remembrance that the Allied cry in the last war to "hang the Kaiser" and others for their "war guilt" finally petered out when it came to a showdown. David Lloyd George. Britain's famous wartime prime minister, was one of the leading exponents of this project, and he even headed a victor, ious lection campaign which featured this issue. When the peace conference assembled in Paris in January of 1919 it immediately appointed a committee on war responsibility, and this body recommended that the Kaiser be tried before a tribunal made up of representatvies of the United States, Britain, France, 1 Italy and Japan.

Hitler Confers With Puppet Slovak Chief By EDDY GlLMORE Moscow, April 23 (/P)—The Gcr mans hourly have reinforced their land armies in the Kuban and have shifted hundreds of their bomber and fighter planes into the Crimea for use in the north Caucasian bat tics, but despite insistant attacks by these new forces the Germans have failed to dent the Russian lines, it was declared today. Red Star, the army newspaper said the Nazi were employing numerous Rumanian troops and that during the last few days had forced them to spearhead the assaults which are costing them hundreds of dead. The noon communique told of 500 of the enemy slaughtered in two Kuban sctors alone in the last 12 hours, bringing the toll for the last 20 hours well above 800. (The German communique said the Nazi air force carried out a heavy attack last night against the Soviet Black Sea port of Poti, described as a naval base. The com- munique said "no fighting of im portance took place on the whole eastern front yesterday."

McNutt's job-wage control order without a change in President Roosevelt's directions to hold-thc-line against in flation. These officials, who asked to remain anonymous, contend McNutt's order, which has drawn fire from both AFL and CIO ranks merely carried out the president's instructions to prevent jobshifts a higher pay unless they "aid in the effective prosecution of the war.' They expressed the view that thi labor protests, voiced most strongly thus far by AFL Prcidcnt Wiliam Green and 'the ClO-United Auto Worker's executive board, vere aimed more at what the'pres- dent directed than at what McNutt did.

Urrey 679 Taxi Co. High Bombing Losses Felt to Be Justified By KIRKE L. SIMPSON Washington, April 23 — (1ft— American high altitude, dayligh bombing of Nazi war industry from British base appars certain to be continued despite some questioning among British press comment tors of its effectiveness due to re cent indicated plane losses. In the light of figures made public by Under Secretary of War Patterson on the recent Bremen raid, there remains no doubt that official Washington holds the losses justified by trategic and tactical results obtained as well as the new demonstration of integral defensive power of the big, heavy armed American planes. Sixteen of them were lost on that flight; but revised figures show they shot 95 of an estmiated 150 Nazi interceptor planes out of action, 63 of which definitely were destroyed. That adds up to a score of 6-to-l for the unescorted big ships although they were spotted an hour's flight from their taget, the Focke- r affiliated U. S.

The impassive 20-year-old Negro cook late yesterday heard a jury find him guilty in the first degree of murdering Mrs. Martha Virginia James, 21, aboard a Southern Pacific limited before dawn January 23. He yawned as he rose to leave the court and later in his cell laughed with visiotrs. saying, 'wonder it they'll have any trouble getting my gas ration?"
