KRUEGER HICO, Texas, W— For 31 minutes of his *'6-minute campaign speech here Friday Senator W. jee O'Daniel banged away at la>or racketeers, quoting a newspa- ser story to condemn the necessity for Navy operation of the General Cable Corporation in New Tersey. Townspeople crowded together on the shady side of Main street 0 hear him. Some of the ladies sat in cars in mid-street, calmly working their knitting needles as ,hey listened. Senator O'Daniel cited the Cable Company's troubles as an example of what labor leader racketeers can do to harm the war effort. He held up a Fort Worth Star Telegram and from it read where the President had called out the Navy to run the plant. "At a time when the Navy is urgently needed to light the Axis powers, here is President Roosevelt, the most burdened man in the world, weighed down with the job of fighting the war, having to take up his good time in forcing 1,000 men to work," he said. The Senator also said government reports showed that last June there were twice as many men out on strike as in May, "proof that the communistic racketeers will go to any lengths to weaken this nation so they can take it over." O'Daniel added that "we know we have lost every major battle in this war because we didn't have enough high-powered weapons and enough equipment. 1 knew long before Pearl Harbor that we couldn't win a war with Former Judge Says Moody Men Now In His Camp BY LEDGERWOOD SLOAN CENTERVILLE, Tex., (<P) —James V.

Brown, designated by the War Department to be Assistant Division Commander o£ the 102nd Infantry Division, Camp Maxey, reported lor duty Wednesday. General Brown was on duty at Headquarters of the Army Ground Forces in Washing- Ion, D. C., prior to being ordered to Camp Maxey. He was born July 28, 1892, in Sharon, Georgia, and attended the public schools of that town.

The crowd around the shady courthouse square, cooled by a brisk breeze following showers, applauded frequently. Allred also expressed regret "that any man who has been Governor of Texas would refer to another former governor as a 'little squirt.' " Attorney John Adkisson introduced Allred by pointing out he had spoken in Leon County in every state campaign he had made while his opponent had never stopped here. The candidate, outlining his pension record, charged his opposition with "putting one old fellow up to asking me a question at Palestine." "And when he was asked what the question was, he couldn't remember," Allred declared. The speaker said he wanted to go to Washington and be like Senator Sheppard who never called people he was sent up'there to work with pie-eaters." James V.

Biddle said he had ordered the filing of an information in federal district court at Houston against policemen Clyde Brown and Billy Brown for mistreatment allegedly dealt Private J. Reco on July 28, after Private Reco was ordered off a bus for taking a seat reserved for white passengers. The soldier was beaten when he alighted from the vehicle and while being taken to police headquarters was shot twice, Biddle said in a statement released by the Office of War Information. The defendants will be taken into custody "as soon as practicable," Biddle said, and will be charged with a violation of the civil code which provides that no citizen shall be deprived of his civil rights "under the color of state laws." Biddle said he had acted upon request of the War Department. The offense is a Federal misdemeanor, and as such may be through the fOing of an information without recourse to grand jury proceedings. Maximum penalties upon conviction are one year's imprisonment or 81,000 fine, or both. The Justice Department's statement given out by OWI gave this account of the incident: ' The information charges that Reco was ordered off a Beau- See NEGRO, Page 8 Col. 8 farming sections of East Texas Friday. The apparently tireless candidate wound up a day of strenuous speaking engagements at a patriotic rally at the Tomato Bowl here Thursday night. Crying "God Bless the Russians who "have held the lines of religion and decency against the Nazi hordes," he refrained from discussing politics. Allred was introduced at Jacksonville by Mayor Tom Acker as "one of the greatest governors of this state." here he received the degree of achelor of Arts.

Evans was answered by another pensioner, J. D. Rodgers. who declared that Allred's explanation was correct. Evans departed with Ihc comment that he "didn't get it and ain't got it yet."

The Admiralty intimated that the convoy might have suffered further losses or damage, saying "it is not to be expected that extensive and dangerous operations of this type, carried out in close proximity to enemy bases, can be completed without loss." It declared, however, that published Axis claims were known to be exaggerated. Combined German and Italian claims included: sunk, three cruisers, two destroyers, 21 merchant ships and the aircraft carrier Eagle: damaged, one battleship, wo aircraft carriers, including he U. S. aircraft carrier Wasp. and "numerous other steamers and men-of-war." Originally, however, the Germans had claimed only 21 merchant ships were in the entire convoy. With the exception of the Eagle and the Manchester apparently in the same action, there has b<:en no confirmation of these Axis claims from any source. The Manchester was a 9,400:on cruiser, completed Aug. 4. 1938. Her peacetime comnlement was 700 men. The Admiralty disclosed that many of her crew were rescued and others may have reached French Tunisia, near where she went down. The Admiralty account said m part: "Measures taken by the enemy consisted of packs of U-boats, large numbers of torpedo-carrying and dive-bombing aircraft and strong forces of E-bonts (torpedo boat?) operating in the central narrows. "A force of enemy cruisers consisting of ships armed with 8-inch and fi-inch guns concentrated in the Tyrrhenian Sen and steered to the southward xs if to attemnt to interfere with the passage of our convoy. "The enemy cruiser force, however, never rame within range of our ships and turned back on be- ine attacked by aircraft. Results of this attack were not observed. awaited ot the XXX "Reports were considerable air operations carried out by Naval aircraft and aircraft of the Royal Air Force. "Destruction of one U-boat has already been announced, and it now is certain that at least one more has been sunk." Ships Of Enemy Drive Home Three Attacks Against Japs At New Guinea GENERAL MACARTHUR'S HEADQUARTERS, Australia, W) —The battle of the Solomon Islands exploded over a broadening area of the South Seas Friday with. Allied bombers blasting away at Japanese warships and transports apparently trying to reinforce garrisons hurled out of three coastal areas by United States Marines. Allied flying fortresses and medium bombers caught the enemy vessels in New Guinea waters, west of the Solomons,. Thursday and drove home three separate attacks, a headquarters com- munique reported. Bad weather prevented the pilots from observing the full extent of the damage. News of the and fighting still was meager as the battle of the Solomons entered its second week, and Washington's Navy communi- que said only that operations wert continuing. There was every indication nevertheless that this first Allied offensive of the war had now grown into a clash of major proportions and one which might alter the whole course of the Pacific struggle. Jap Report on TJ. S. Ixuses (The Japanese reported—without confirmation from any Allied source—that their forces in the Solomons action had sunk 13" British and American cruisers, nine destroyers, 10 transports 'and three submarines; had damaged one cruiser, three destroyers and one transport; and shot down 58 planes. Japanese losses were given. as two cruisers slightly damaged and 21 planes lost. U. S. Admiral Ernest J. King announced last Monday that Allied losses then include'd a cruiser sunk and two cruisers, two destroyers and * transport damaged. (Tokyo's claims recalled its extravagant reports of Allied losses in the Coral Sea and Midway battles, which bore no resemblance to the -facts. Both of those battles resulted in Japanese defeats.) The headquarters communique said that during the first of Thursday's attacks on the Japanese ships off New Guinea, six Japanese Zero fighters challenged a flight of flying fortresses and that two enemv craft were shot down and Censorship Is Necessary-Price Official Says It's Vital Weapon To Hamper Enemy INDIANAPOLIS.
