May 15 <U.I\> — The Semite appears to have killed action on the anti-poll tux wil, :il least for the rest of the year. By a vale of 44 to SB, the Senate refused to limit debate on (he bill that would permit southern Senators to filibuster against it fa the fight lo pass the hill is cx- pecleel to be dropped for the present. Failure of Hie cloturc suppliers to get even a majority, nuicli less the two-thirds vote necessary to limit debate was somcvli.il 'surprising. Incidentally, Republican Senator Vandcnbuig of Michigan believes Congress should not recess for - Hie Summer until it takes action on unemployment compensation for discharged civilian war workers.' Forreslal Approved Within MIC next few days, the Senate is expected to confirm the nomination of James V. Fcir- restal as Navy Secretary, in three. minutes' time today the Naval Affairs Committee iinnninvmsly approved (lie nomination, and sent !t to. the floor for action. While the Senate Naval Affairs Committee sued the nomination of •Forrcstal, the House Committee on Foreign Policy also was concerned with the Navy. But in a much different way. The Assistant, Secretary of Navy for Air. Artemus U Gates, testified 'on .Ihe proposals to. merge the Army and the Navy. .And Gates said Hint if they are consolidated after the -war, they should be merged into the nayy. In that way, .Gates ,- told -the.: committee, a r.sea air and aippnibious force Trunk Murderer Cqptured In Texas Scylo Vlllcgas, 26, flanked by two officers at Crystal City Tex after his capture.

Griffis Closing Deal A Swedish newspaper says the American .economic expert, Stan- Ion Griffis, now in Sweden, has just alvnit completed negotiations to cut off ball bearing shipments to Germany. The newspaper declares that although an agreement is being worked into concrete form, a Swedish-German trade agreement i s sim valid. Therefore, it adds it's an open question when reduction of ball bearing exports will start. Other developments to fill out the home-front news picttire: The Interstate Commerce Commission toftay ruled that the present reduced railroad freight rates shall continue until January 1, 1945. At the sedition trial in Washing- ion, one of the 2fl defendants was unsuccessful today in trying lo fire his lawyer, James J. La'ughlin.

(UI'J— The din-dor of the Federal nnrcaii of tiivcsllenlloti. .1. Edgnr Hoover, believes that condlllons after Ihc war will determine whclher or not America will have a post-war crime wave. In an article written for the United Press, tiic rat chief says the philosophy of "kill or Iw Mlird" that is ground into men In the armed forces will not necessarily te a factor In post-war crime. However, ffoovcr believes the j;l<>- bal war presents another problem. Many young men. taken In the armed services before they had a chance to establish themselves, have traveled widely In many countries. He thinks that these may be selwd with restlessness. But, he stresses thai It Is most unlikely they will turn to crime, unless there Is widespread unemployment. The FBI chief points out the Increase In crimes committed by persons under 21. He llilius tills trend of youthful violators will probably Increase In Hie (icrlod of transliion from war to peace, unless this conversion is carried out quickly. In sum, Hoover believes Ihere Is a great need to be realistic, but not pessimistic as regards future crime. N. 0. Cotton open . high low c |os c (ir . c ].
