Giijfith. on furlough hero after If! months uf foreign duty, received the award by letter on arrival home. The award came through an executive order of Pres- iclent Roosevelt. l(p A veleran serviceman, Sgl. Griffith volunteered at. the outbreak of the European war in 1!):;9 and was almost immediately sent to Hawaii, lie was stationed at nearby Hickam Kick! when the Japs at, ^tacked Pearl Harbor and since that "day of infamy" has been in two other major battles, at Midway and in the Solomon Islands. Kor the past 10-months he has served as aerial gunner on a B-17 ..in" the Solomons, taking part in Vfriiany bombing missions. lie will leave tonight for a replacement center and expects to serve as an ' instructor somewhere in the United Slates. S.i;t. Griffith thinks the report that Solons . (Continued From Page One) .movement was slow as some •union locals in Pennsylvania voted against resumption without a contract. Others delayed action because of the lateness of telegrams from headquarters calling off the walkout. \t ...The president coupled his SUK- gostion yesterday with (he assertion that the making of war munitions and supplies has gone ahead extremely well except for the coal strikes. This was quick. Jly interpreted in Congress as in- '•dicating he intends to veto the Connally-Smith-IIarness bill. The measure would outlaw strikes in government-controlled plants or mines, regulate walkouts in priv- _£i(!lv-o.vM-ai,.,i f.-u-ilities and clothe ..fine WLR with statutory authority to settle all labor disputes in de- Ipnso industries. .Supporters said if a veto is forthcoming, efforts will be made to override it but they admitted priv- •^i.tely they have little hope of rallying the necessary two-thirds vote Tln.'re seemed little doubt, how- e'ver, that the proposed Selective Service amendment also would have rough going.

S. planes, of which the B-i? is his "honey," and to crews of the planes. "We are just now learning how to fight the Japs and they just don't stack up with our hoys." The lanky gunner was not very talkative but from all indications lie thinks even the Indians wouldn't have the Solomons. The natives are friendly--hut don't offer them a cigarette or they will take the whole package, he warned. One incident he related was how the American boys harrassecl the Japs at night by flying over their lines and laying a couple of "eggs." This didn't seem to bother the enemy very much, so tha Americans sta'rted dropping empty beer bottles from their planes. The bottles screamed Itke a "terror bomb" sending the whole enemy camp for shelter. "There was only one catch," said the sergeant, "the Japs started paying us back in our own medicine—so we had to quit the game in order to get some sleep." Ihe anti-strike bill, Rep. Smith (P- Va) said the alternative proposal is "an insult to the army." Hi.s view has shared by Senator Johnson (D-Colo), a member of the Senate Military Committee, who said he does not think the army light to be made into "a penitentiary." Chairman TJruman fD-Mo) of the Senate War Investigating Committee also told reporters he was against the president's suggestion, commenting: "I don't believe in a military dictatorship and I don't believe in drafting labor. It's an honor tu | serve in the army and 1 don't want ! fellows of that kind in our army." ' Senators Byrd (D-Val and Eastland iD-Missi were among the few who indicated they would support the president's proposal though Byrd said he thought Mr. Roosevelt should sign the anti-strike bill for the effect it would have in preventing future walkouts.
