Pfwey would lead the Hepuhlican ticket in Indiana. Hut Dewey's margin over President Roosevelt will be Jnly a little more than 100,000 votea. J 948 Candidate The upshot probably will be that Captain Jenner will be a formidable candidate for the Senate In 1946 When the term of Senator Raymond E. Willis expires. Reports have circulated that Senator Willis will not run for reelection because of his Beulth. This demonstration of the strenatb of a war fighter also may make the Democrats think twice about nominating Governor Henry P. Schrlcker. whom Capebart defeated this year, for Senator in 194fi. Perhaps the Democrats likewise may seek a World War Two combatant. Senator Jenner. who lias lived in Paoli, Shoals, on a Hendricks county farm and in Bedford, has had much political experience. He served two terms in the State Senate and was president pro tern of that body. In 1840 be was defeated for the H O P. gubernatorial nomination by Olen R. Hills, of Kokomo. Wallace U Secretary Lisle Wallace, of Sheridan, an original Jenner-for-Senator man. will (to to Washington as his secretary. Wallace was responsible for placing Jenner's name in nomination at the Republican state convention when the latter was in a New York military hoslptal after being flown back from England. ; On the basis of late returns, the Republicans were sure of nine Con-sressiona! seats in Indiana and had a , chance to capture another.

George Meany. secretary-treasurer of the American Federation of Labor, will fire the opening gun In the wage campaign in a nation-wide broadcast from Washington at 1 0 : 4 r. p. m. EWT tonight. The A PL described Meany's scheduled radio appearance as "most Important". He is one of two A PL members of the War Labor Board. The CIO will continue In the fight to revise the "Little Steel" formula, although full scale renewal of its public campaign may await the organization's annual convention in Chicago. Nov. 20. Meany is expected to again assail the delay of tile WLI1 ill submitting to President Roosevelt a special "fact finding" report upon which the chief executive will base Ills ultimate decision in regard to the "little steel" yardstick. The. report Is not yet completed and for nearly two weeks the WLB has devoted Its attention to individual CIO wage cases, from which the A PL withdrew in protest, while awaiting the final report from WL11 Chairman William H. Davis and other public members. Agreeing with Meany on the score of delay, a CIO board member remarked: "We are at the mercy of the public members." Meanwhile, a WLB spokesman said t hat- a companion document the long-awaited cost-of-living report from a special presidential committee headed by Davis probably will be ready for submission to the White House early next week. Mr. Roosevelt called for this study on war-time increases on living cosls nearly a year ago when labor first instituted its drive for wage Increases beyond "Little Steel"" Both CIO and AFL leaders have charged that cost-of-living has far outstripped war-time increases in earnings and now argue that the nation will face a buying power shortage when overtime ends nd the 40-hour week comes back unless wages are adjusted upward at once. 1 I GRIFFIN family in Chicago.

MILE.ViE RECORD TO HE ENCLOSED WITH WAS FORMS Many applicants who send in application forms for supplemental gasoline are not enclosing their mileage rationing record as required by the regulations, OPA ofHcials announced Monday. In such cases the application form must be returned to the applicant with instructions that he mail it back to the board along with his mileage rationing record. This procedure makes a lot of extra work for the already overworked board starts and at the same time causes delay in taking care of the request of the applicant. In a case where the applicant has lost his mileage rationing record, extra work Is required in getting a duplicate for the applicant. The mileage rationing record is the stub of OPA form 534 which was the application form for the applicant when he obtained his renewed A book. At that time the stub was torn off and given to the applicant, so that he might retain it and have lt available for future applications for supplemental gasoline.

More than 12.000 members of the Masonic order in Indiana are iu the armed forces and at least $100,000 of the $250,000 will be set aside for returning servicemen or dependents of service men needing assistance, Mr. Lett explained. The balance will be used to maintain the Masonic Service Centers at Indianapolis and Ev-ansvilie. ft KAIKKS TO HIVE 11 KCHAKEItH IXVOICi: Alt dealers in coal and other solid fuels are now required to give each purchan'-r an invoice, sales slip or receipt, containing full information about i he kind of coal sold and the price, the Office of Price Administration announced the first of the week.
