Norfolk, Va., Feb. 24 (&) — The Navy Department today removed its censorship from a statement given the Associated Press by an officer that a Murmansk-bound convoy was Instructed by Its' escort to scatter because the German battleship Tir- pitz and 23 other war ships were approaching. The British Admiralty earlier today had described u "entirely without foundation" the statement this week of Merchant Marine Seaman Walter Sankiewicz. of Baltimore, recently repatriated from Germany, that British escort ships had once abandoned'a Murmansk-bound convoy to engage German warship* with the result that 34 Allied merchant vessels were sunk by torpedo planes and submarines. ; When the Admiralty's denial was published today, the Navy Department waa asked to permit publication of a. paragraph previously deleted by Nary censors from a story obtained from Lt. (jg) Charles M. Ulrich, USNR., of Pitman, N. J. The Navy thereupon said It had no objection to publlction. Interviewed at Norfolk in July, 1943, Ulrich ^aid he had been in command of a Navy gun crew aboard n merchant ship bound for Murmansk In convoy with 39 other ships a. year before, that on the sixth day out of Iceland and for 'ive days thereafter the convoy was attacked repeatedly by Nail torpedo planes and dive bombtrs, that Eev- sral ships were sunk, and that: "At the end of the fifth day our escort radioed u» to scatter because the TirpiU! and 23 other war ships were heading for our convoy." (This was the paragraph which was deleted by Navy censors when the story was submitted for review.) After the convoy dispersed, Ulrich said, his ship "tried to sneak around Franz Joseland and Novya. Zembla but an ice floe blocked us and we sailed southwest of the floe. "We heard radio messages from nearby ships that they were being sunk. "A squadron of seven Junkers-88s with gold-tipped 'wings found our ships and attacked. "We put up i. fire. They dropped bombs all around us, blew part of our stern off and opened our plates. We counted 21 bomb*. The ship was set afire. We abandoned ship In two. litebo»U." Ten days later the bomts reached Novya Zembla, four hundred miles from the scene of the attack, Ulrich cesses in Burma should not be mini- mised, but they ore far Inferior in scope compared with whit the Allies have achieved In Europe."

"Work stoppages in the bituminous fields would seriously and Immediately Impair steel production," Krug said in a statement evidently aimed at members of Lewis' Policy Committee gathering here for their opening deliberations Monday on wage demands. UMW negotiations with the mine operators will open Thursday.

Hieh Court Backs To Test Senate's will be considered for deferment. Fifteen government agencies were designated to certify whether registrants should get strong consideration, as an aid to the decisions of local boards. The new procedure also calls for the filing of a new form, sailed "form 42 a (special revised)" for under-30 men whose deferment is sought. The use of this form Is compulsory. Employers may file the form with the local board even, though the federal agency having jurisdiction refuses to issue a certificate or if the employer does not come within the jurisdiction of any federal agency.

(#)—A request that the National Labor Relations Board be prohibited from enforcing an. order withdrawing recognition from a union of Baltimore Transit Company employes wa* denied today by the Supreme Court. The court advised attorneys in the case that an order would be hand«d down Monday denying the petition by th« Independent Brotherhood and Union of Transit Employes of Baltimore. As a result of the ruling, the brotherhood will drop its plans for an appeal to the Supreme Court, Jacob Blum,'attorney for the brotherhood said, and the regional office of the NUiB will move to hold a collective bargaining election within ten days after the court mandate Is received in Baltimore.

Congress Scrap Before Committee By JACK BELL Feb. 34 (/P>—The administration decided today to test lie Senate's t«mper on the Henry Wallace nomination before it tries for confirmation, of Aubny Williams as head of the Rural Electrification Administration. The Senate has let March 1 to consider Wallace's appointment as commerce secretary. Administration leaders expect two days of discussion but are certain he will be confirmed if Prtsident Roosevelt meanwhile signs legislation separating lending agencies from the department. With Williams, it's another story His nomination appears unlikely to clear opposition barriers in the Agriculture committee. Ten of the 30 committee members told the Associated Press they intend to vote against reporting favorably the appointment of the 54- year-old former National Youth Administrator. Eight members said hey favored confirmation. Two were undecided. A tie vote brings an un- avorable report. : "•• Fftced with this stU**.ti«n, an administration lieutenant said the Wlllinms nomination will be held back to concentrate all efforts on putting Wallace across by the largest possible vote. Pro-Wallace forces believe they have a 18-v«te safety margin now or the former vice president, and hope they can make his victory even more impressive for the p«y- Vlrginia, Pennsylvania and Kentucky. Solid Fuels Administration officials said the return should not be contstrued as a conciliatory gesture by the government in connection with the wage negotiations. SFA Administrator Harold L. Ickes said federal control was ended, after five months, because a TJMAV union of supervisory employes which threatened to strike last fall had now given assurance of continued work if private operation were resumed. : .:'.
