THE ERA. BRADFORD. P/L. THURSDAY, JULY 18, 1946. PAGE nvm New Draft Regulations Likely ToScrap Occupation Deferments Harrisburg-(AP)-Selective service headquarters said yesterday that occupational deferment may become a thing of the past in Pennsylvania if local boards follow to the letter a new directive to give deferment only to those "indispensable and irreplaceable to the national existence." ^ Start in September I The order was issued by national headquarters Tuesday and affects ' men ot 19 through 29 years. The first Inductions under the order will not start until September since the Army has issued no calls for Julv and August. "There would be verv few reeis- trants who could be found to be indispensable for national existence Early Return Of Mines to Owners Unlikely Washington -(£}- Soft coal opera. ln Pennsylvania," said Lt Col Rayl t o r s have broken °" . mond E.

However, before any estimate can be made of how many new men the directive will make available for induction in Pennsjhania a survey of local boards' file will be necessary. So far only the text of the directive has been forwarded to local authorities. Fire Sweeps Tire Plant in Pittsburgh Pittsburgh -(ff)- Fire swept the premises of the Acme Tire Co. yesterday on Pittsburgh's South Side doing damage estimated at $10,000. Eight fire companies fought the blaze which was fed bv a highly inflammable solvent. The fire started when the solvent caught fire as It was being poured by two em- ployes. Morns Reiter, 38, a co- owner of the shop, and Fireman Louis McDonnel were injured slightly In the fire. Vice Admiral Ben C. Moreell, administrator of coal mines seized by the government, has been presiding over closed-door conferences among government, union and operator representatives striving to win an overall agreement on the foremen's question. Gall said these discussions collapsed last Friday when it became evident that "no amicable agreement could be reached." The mines have been under federal operation since late May. After the seizure PMW members broke their long strike and returned to uork in early July when the government and WMW Chief John L. Lewis reached an agreement on issues involved in the strike. Since then, the question as to when the mines will be returned to their owners has largely hinged on whether the operators and Lewis could agree on a contract and on settlement of the supervisory issue. The operators and the union are disputing whether assistant mine foremen and fire bosses represent Mahailovie, 8 Others Die By Firing Squad Btlgndt-VP)-Gen. Draja Mihailo- vic died at dawn yesterday before a firing squad. The bearded. 50-year-old Chetnik leader who electrified the Allied world In 1941 by organizing the first Yugoslav resistance to the Nazi Invaders, was executed less thi-. 481 hours after a Yugoslav military j court found him guilty of treason and collaboration with the Germans. Eight others who were convicted with him were executed In the same private military ceremony. In this capital, the people apparently lost all interest in the convicted men once the death sentence was passed. On the only official comment yesterday morning was this terse announcement: "Since the presldum of the Yugoslav parliament rejected the appeals of the accused men, all the death sentences have been carried out." Otherwise, Yugoslav authorities remained silent and adopted the attitude that the news of the executions was unimportant. The sentences had been carried out swiftly in accordance with the Yugoslav custom of exacting the death penalty within two days of its imposition. The military court had sentenced 11 men in all to death, but two had been tried In absentia. They are Peter Zhivkovlc. former Yugoslav general who once served as a member of King Peter's government-in- exile in London, and Mladen Juje- vic, 51, former Chetnik commander who now is believed to be living In Paris. Twenty-three other defendants were convicted and sentenced to prison for terms ranging from 18 months to 20 years. Mihailovic, throughout his trial, maintained stoutly that he never collaborated with the Germans and that he had fought to drive them from his country, but the government of Marshal Tito charged that the Chetnlks not only collaborated, but did battle against the national liberation forces.

PASTEL and PRINT Steel Issues Lead Quiet Rally On Stock Mart New York-{/P)-Stocks generally got back on their feet in jesterday's market with steels leading a quiet rally of industrials and notably "thin" special issues executing wide jumps. Reinstatements of bids in most cases was attributed by brokers to the belief the list was entitled to a technical comeback after the sharp drop of the preceding four sessions. Numerous customers, however, held aloof pending settlement of the price control controversy. Caution also still was based on growing consumers' resistance to rising living costs, tightening money rates I and some skepticism over the earnings outlook. i The Associated Press 60-stock composite was up .6 of a point at 77.3, first upturn since July 9.
