Oei Calotabs from your druggist. Use only as directed on the labeling. Me CALOTABS told a reporter as the lengthy hearings entered what may be their final week. The llinois senator said it seemed likely that Noyes. as chief of the intelligence Dranch, might be expe.ted to know most about the Japanese "weather report'' which is supposed to have had the code meaning that international re lations ".vcre in danger, or some contend that war was imminent. Kramer Saw Message Lucas observed that Capt. A. D. Kramer, who was called back to the stand today to conclude testimony he began last week, had told The investigators In had seen a winds message on Dec. 5, 1941 lets than half a minute, and then more or less by accident. Lucas said he has the impression that such a message was intercepted, examined by the proper officials, d.'emed not to mean an attack was coming immediately, and thrown away. Senator Barkley (D-Ky), chairman of the Senate-House investigating committee, said it is highly probable that night sessions will be necessary, beginning tonight, to w ind up the hearings by Friday. That is the current deadline for closing the investigation. Burkley j added it will be necessary to ask an extension prouaoiy ou ciays lor the committee to prepare its report.

JP) A responsible government official said today Gen. Joseph T. McNarney plans to recruit several thousand more Polish civilians to help solve the U. S. army's manpower problem in Germany. Although the war department directed the commander of American occupation forces to dismiss more than 700 army-employed Yugoslav refugees because of complaints of political activity, McNarney has been authorized to hire additional Poles, this official said. Approximately 2.3.000 Poles wearing the principal items of the U. S. army uniform, now are cm-ployed in the American zone as armed guards and in other capacities. The exact number more tJ be hired was not disclosed. Toles Not Organized Secretary of State Byrnes told reporters Friday he had. been advised that the Poles were not organized and were not carrying on propaganda against Russia or the Warsaw government. He announced at the same time that the war department had directed McNarney to dismiss his Yugoslav-employes as a result of a complaint by the Yugoslav mission in the American zone. Supplementing Byrnes' announcement, another official said the employment of foregin civil ians directlv reflects the occupa tion army's manpower difficulties. United States troops are being reduced to 400,000 by April 1 and to 307.000 by July 1. McNarney has advised the war department that Polish missions representing the Russian-supported Warsaw government have screened the Poles hired by the American army. The Yugoslav mission complained that the 777 expatriate. Yugoslavs were not screened and were agitating against the Tito regime.
