At several points in West Virginia, where depths up to 15 inches had been reported, the snow had been packed down to a foot or less. Heavy snow fell in northern Ohio and southern Michigan, but from Indiana west the fall was negligible. Detroit had 6 inches of snow and several Ohio cities even more. In the deep south, in Mississippi, Alabama, South Carolina, Georgia and northern Florida there were flurries of snow which do not occur often and the temperature dropped below freezing. Snow fell also in Tennessee and Arkansas. Jn the midwest, where the storm appeared to be over, the temperatures dropped and highways were left in a hazardous condition.

He added that there also was a responsibility to strengthen our Democra-lic foundations and that the annual labor conference was doing that. Secretary Perkins recommended the following fields for action by the labor legislation conference: basic labor policy, including slat minimum wage legislation for reconversion and postwar, improved and extended wage payments and wage collection laws: state laws to abolish sub-standard wages and working conditions in industrial home work; protective statutes for migratory farm workers; raising the standards in states which do not yet meet the lti-year minimum age level in the employment of children. and strengthening slate laws and codes for promoting safety and help in iBHEBHBBra The Chicago snowfall was put at , IV jnciieH jjjus uiiu even miller Jll other parts of Illinois.

Secretary of Labor Frances Perkins today advocated a postwar reorganization of the government's scattered labor machinery and the abandonment of wage and price fixing as soon as possible. Addressing the eleventh national conference on labor legislation, the secretary also warned labor commissioners and union delegates from 42 states that the authority of the federal government will be expended unless the state enact decent labor laws and vigorously enforce them. A reorganization of the Uihor department and the resignation of Secretary Perkins has been demanded for some time by the AFL and CIO. President Koosevelt is said to be ready to replace .Miss Perkins when the two big labor groups agree on her successor. "Various functions relating to labor matters now scattered through many agencies of tile government, should be consolidated in the I'. S.

Recommended and aold by WHITE'S PHARMACY L Yank Forces to Make Up Large Part of Reich Occupation Army LONDON. Knglaud. An American army of occupation several hundred thousand strong is jtoing to be kept in Kurope indefinitely 10 help police Germany under the present Allied plan for control of the defeated lieicb, this correspondent learned today. The size of this force means that more than one American general will take charge of the American zone of occupation in southern Germany. No one at this stage can say how long American boys will remain in the Keich except that it will be an indefinite time. The United States, Groat liritain and Kussia are understood to be in complete agreement on the necop.rfity of placing no time limit on the occupation of Germany. The tripartite plan is based solely on the determination to prevent Germany from rearming again and becoming a menace to the peace of the world. The exact number of I'. S. troops required in the army of occupation lias not yet been determined but it undoubtedly will bo much higher than generally realized at home. Questionnaires already have been circulated among the American and British forces inquiring whether men. especially those with a knowledge, of Germany, are interested in signing up for the respective armies of occupation for periods, according :o one report, up to three years. In some instances British wives also have signed up to do clerical work in order to be with their husbands. Avoid Past Krrors The United States. Rritafn and Russia have agreed they must try to avoid the mistakes of the last such as permitting Gorman eoldiers to march home in formation. This time Germans will be rent home individually stripped of regimental insignia. The rule aganst fraternization for occupational troops will be enforced most vigorously. While the United States naturally has no territorial claims on Germany, it is understood that the American government accepts the principle of plans to amputate certain parts of Gorman border territories and for the use of German labor for the reconstruction of devastated areas of invaded countries. However, there has been no definite agreement yet reached on how much German territory will be annexed or how many Germans will be compelled to serve in rebuilding work. Hoosiers Shiver as Icy Winds Blast State; Workmen Clear Roads INDIANAPOLIS, lnd. VVintry bluyis sent shivers up Hoosier spines today while even colder weather was forecast for tonight along wiib lislit snow in east and north portions of the state. Temperatures will range i'rora 10 to 3 2 degrees above zero in sections north, west and fouth of Indianapolis, the Weather l;tireau said, while 12 lo 15 degrees was predicted lor the area to the east. In the meantime. State- Highway Commission crews worked to clear ice-covered highways from Lal'oi te lo 1'ort Wayne where driving was described as hazardous. Koads also were reported icy in spots north of T. S. 40 in the Craw f orcls ille and Oreenfield areas.

The widespread snowstorm which blanketed all the midwest ext nded lis territory today to the east and ewD the unaccustomed southland.

More than 1,250 American bombers escorted by over 900 fighter planes today attacked Important railways at Hanau. Darmstadl and Leuna. Germany, as well as a synthetic oil plant at Merseherg. LONDON. Kugland. Mosijullo bombers of the Royal Air porce blasted the German industrial city of Hannover anil the port of Hamburg during Ihe night, the air ministry announced today. (The approach in daylight of a "weak" Allied bomber formation over western Hungary and Silesia and lower Austria and upper Silesia was reported by the German home radio, according to the JVC.) The Pritish Mosquitos also attacked objectives in western Germany, the communique said. One plane was reported missing. New Draft Orders '"Freeze" Workers On War Jobs (Continued from page J) instructions were released by Cul. .Hitchcock after lie had received a telegram ji-om Maj. ion. Lewis iJ. Hershey, national selection service director. Meanwhile. Gen. Hershey w;,s quoted as indicating that selective service regulations are being amended to channel to military service all registrants under 38 years old who drift from essential jobs. Those revisions will bo announced by the end of the week, it was paid. More Higid Application. It was predicted, however, that the new order merely will diroct a more rigid application of t ho regulations in effect, proiding ttiat occupations My deferred men under US may bo drafted if they leave jobs that qualify them for classification in 2-A or 2-JJ. WASHINGTON, P. C. Thousands of war workers in the 2tf through ;J7 ;t:e group were "frozen" tight in their jobs todays while other physically-able men in this caterory wore warned to get into vital employment immediately or prepare for induction into the armed forces. Wain AgaJjist Change Selective Service Director Lewis U. Hei-Khey ruled that occupationally deferred draft registrants in the 2fi-'M group must obtain permission from local draft boards before changing jobs. This even includes moving from one war plant to another. Gen. Hershey also instructed ihe boards to begin a prompt review oi all cases of occupational draft deferment, cracking down in instances where borderline deferments have been allowed. fs& Yanks Annihilate Japs Holding Out In Levte Garrisons (Continued from page 1) port and pushed forward lo capture it within lour days after their brilliantly executed maneuver was launched.

A crossing of the lioer river at Hoven is now within rifle range of American Seventh Army troops and Duren itself is gravely threatened, front-line dispatches disclosed. Duren lies approximately 29 miles west of t'ologne. lto.i Keuval HepcM-tcd Reports persisted of a general German withdrawal across the Koer to the eastern bank, raising the possibility that American forces may be able to take J)uren more or less intact. The Hermans ruthlessly sacrificed Aachen and scores of towns and villages between it and Cologne, but the absence thus far of any coordinated Allied bombardment of Duren indicates the Nazis may abandon this area without resorting to the street and house fighting which invariably spells such complete destruction.

Patch and Ihe United States Seventh Army to the south had opened a lull-scale offensive aimed at a breakthrough into the Palatinate east of the Saar territory.
