Byrnes Denies Any Political Ambitions C". 1 *' eui ftENGER Wednesday - Thursday Washington, June 9 —(/P)—James Byrnes, war mobilization director said today he had no ambition to be vice president and under no circumstances would he seek nomination for the post. Byrnes made thc statement in response to questions at his first press conference since he became over - all director of the nation' home front activities. He disclosed he had sought meetings with the Truman war investigating commillce of the senate and any similar single committee from the house to discuss ways to take up with him things thai such committees believed needed to be improved in Ihe war efforl before they are aired in a controversial way on the capital hill. He also disclosed thai Bernard M. Baruch, presidential consultant and head of the War Industries Board in the last World War, will assist him in an advisory capacity and will be unsigned studies on government polices and programs. Buruch will serve withuol pay or litle and is more than glad to offer his services in such a manner. Byrnes said. The mobilization chief also said lie would take a hand in considering future tax policies and had called a meeting with Secretary of the Treasury Morgenthau, Slab- ilizution Chief Fred M. Vinson und Budget. Director Harold D. Smith for tomorrow morning to discuss what lie indicated was an impending slatemenl by Ihe president to be issued when he signs the pay- as - you - go tux bill. The questions concerning the vice presidency stemmed from recent conjecture- among some political observers that Byrnes might be President Roosevelt's running mate in 1944 should Mr. Hoosevelt be nominated for a fourtah term. Witness Heard in Trial of Tulsa Slaying Tulsa, Okla., June —9— ? A defense witness testified today he saw Mrs. T. Karl Simmons attempting to force her away into the hotel room of Mrs. Ella B. Howard, who is on trial for the fata shooting of the widely known horsewoman. B. F. B r u n d r c d, Pasadena, Calif., oil man, said he occupied room 927 in the Mayo hotel March 25, when Mrs. Simmons was slain in room 920, across the hall. Brundred was termed by defense attorneys their first important witness in combating thc state^'charge of manslaughter. *•" Brundred said he first noticed Ihe woman who he learned later was Mrs. Simmons as he was walking down the hall. His attention, he continued, was attracted by Ihc grimncss of her exprcssoiii. An unidentified woman's voice cried oul "you can't come in here" when Mrs. Simmons sought to enter room 92fi, he said. He added that someon c inside thc room was trying to hold the door shut. "Almost simultaneously," 1he witness went on, "I heard two shots ring oul and my first thought was to get word down to the rfesk." He ran down the hall to get: a bell boy and as he was doing so heard "three or four more shots," he said. He turned around and saw a woman running into room 914. Later, he learned this woman was Mrs. Howard. Afterward he went to room 926 and saw the woman who had been killed was thc one who had tried to shove her way into the room, he said. Brundred's testimony was expected to be followed later by that of thc defendant. T. Karl Simmons, husband of the victim and friend for several years of Mrs. Howard may also be a defense witness. Defense counsel said, however, he probably would not be asked to testify about the $20,000 payment he has said he made to the attractive. 44 year old Fort Worth, Texas, divorcee in September, 1942. £:'•' The Tulsa oil man was- summoned as a state witness yesterday but was not used'as the state put. only four witnessc on Ihe stang and then vested its case.

The witness, William V. Ryan of Bolivar, Mo., as informer has filed a federal suit under a civil war law to recover for himself and the government money he charges was wasted in construction of the $126,000,000 munitions plant covering 10,000 acres near DC Soto, Kas. Senator Harry S. Truman CD- Mo.), chairman of the Senate committee, interrupted thc witness to inquire: "A neighbor out there informed me they not only burned lumber but used bulldozers to plow under electrical equipment. Do you know anything about that?" Ryan, explaining his inspection work covered the concrete and lumber construction, said he did not know of the report gvien Truman. Ryan said the parade of trucks to the fire pit kept up all the time | he was employed on the project. He first estimated an average of 4,000 or 5,000 feel of lumber were dumped into the pit but later revised that down to 1,500 to 2,000 feet for each truck. He testifed he never saw an Army inspector and although he was a chief inspector he did not know Lieut. Col. E. E. Taylor, Army engineer on the project.
