One of the most remarkable of Churchill's statements concerned the claim of equality—if not superiority—in the air war. Front About Same The Germans had been reported to have some 35,000 war planes, including reserves, and British experts said that the Prime Minister's claim was based on greatly Increased American and British production as well as on thestaggering losses suffered by the Germans in Russia, j On the land fighting front In Russia, the only specific claim of Axis progress "was 125 miles southeast of Leningrad where Berlin said that -the important railroad junction of Tlkhvin had been taken. The Nazis also claimed more but unless they are authorized by a secret ballot of rank and flle union ^ r jda members taken under government supervision. The law, to be administered by the NRLB, would provide for registration of union men and secret election of officers and would deprive unionists striking unlawfully of the benefits of existing labor legislation.

The seven other projects are the marine rifle range, expansion of the marine bast, navy auxiliary flying field, navy destroyer base, navy graving dock, navy radio station at North Island, and a defense work- era' housing project. The strike call was set for the hour when a navy ultimatum, issued last Friday, expires.
