"Without any attempt to verify the tacts or even to consult with "the competent officials of this government, the writer of this article presumes to place in question the good faith of the United States government," the Hull statement said.

Each day's ration is divided into three boxes—one each fur breakfast, dinner and supper. Mechanized tioupj also may use the new ration. Brig. Gen. Joseph E. Barzyribki, commander of the ordnance depot, said the 6.0(10 rations, v,oulu be tc.Wd by armored troops at Fort Knox, Ky., infantry at Fort Snelling, Minn., and parachute troops at Fort Benning, Ga. The new ration is for use by troops only when they are separated from normal sources of food, supply, Barzynski said. . Under most conditions, he said, a soldier would not eat "para- rations" for more than one or two days at a time. Ingredients include pemmican and Gruham biscuits, modified malted milk, canned meats, soluble coffee, sugar, and gum. Although the gum supplies no calories it aids digestion, the army explained.

Hamilton Fish. Repn. N. Y., a leading opponent of administration for- j eign policy, told the house today he i would vote for the resolution to I arm American merchant ships, but ! he warned that the legislation may i be the forerunner to repeal of the | entire neutrality act. ' * • j "This innocuous bill may be- part ': and parcel of a conspiracy," he said. "It will be sent to the senate .where it may be amended to repeal Section 2 (which bans American ships from combat zones) or to repeal the whole act." The pending resolution, on which debate opened today after administration- leaders had predicted it would pass tomorrow by 100 to 150 majority, would repeal Section 6 of the neutrality act, prohibiting arming of merchant vessels. in tbe MT. GILEAD, Ohio, Oct. 16.—A $200,000 fire reduced the Florence Pottery Company plant to ruins early today, destroying valuable formulas for glazers and inducing a fatal heart attack to Fire Chief Harod C: Johnstone. The company male art pottery under the trade name of Rumrill. Starting shortly after midnight the flames swept quickly through the 55 year old building, destroying it in three hours. Johnstone died of a heart attack at the wheel of his automobile as he started to leave about 4 a. m. General Manager Lawton Gonder who estimated the loss at $200,000 was liot certain if there were any copies elsewhere of the formulas. He had been instrumental in developing the formulas which enable the pottery to give a glaze to its products. Three employes working in the plant discovered the blaze about 1 u. in. and by 4 a. m. the brick- covered frame structure was in rums. Sparks from u railroad locomotive or an over-healed kiln may have started the fire. Although authorities doubted if any efforts could have saved the building, the volunteer firemen were handicapped in their attempt when they found a l(X)-galloii water tank on the lire truck empty upon arrival at the tire.

Oct. 16.—The leading Tokyo newspaper Asahi prominently displayed today the warning of Naval Spokesman Capt. Hideo Hiraide that Japanese-United States relations were "at the cross-roads." and the Japanese navy was pre- paitd. and, "in fact, itching for action." Iiiraide lectured last night at Tokyo, and Asahi commented that his lecture was significant because it clarified for the first tune the pan must adopt an attitude of "firmest determination." The United Slates, he said, was expanding its navy on a large scale, but still was unable to conduct simultaneous <>p- ciations in the Atlantic and Pacific. "After four years of holy war i against China), the Japanese navy has fared very well and is actually becoming stronger." he said. "Under this Situation, the imperial navy is pripared lor the worsl. In f^ct. the Jupune^e navy is itching fur avliuii."
