(INS) Possibility of a change in the entire Japanese Pacific command was reported Wednesday by Blue network War Correspondent Clete Robert, attached to Gen. Douglas Mac-Arthur' headquarters. In a broadcast from MacArthur's advance baie, Roberts said, "I hava learned that the Japanese plan a complete change of command." Elaborating on his statement, Roberts said he believed the change would be made because of recent apparent disorganization in the command. He pointed to lack of Jap air resistance to long American aerial sweeps over enemy-held territory as one evidence of the enemy's apparent loss of organization.

Y, Oct. 4.-W-His lights fixed on an annual post' war national income of $150,000,' 000,000, Gov. Thomas E. Dewey stood committed Wednesday to program of cutting peacetime taxes on individuals and businesses, H the republicans win in November. The republican presidential nomi nee, in a nationwide radio address (Mutual) Tuesday night, called for simplification of what he termed "our existing, confused and compli cated tax laws which he said threatened to form "a road-block in the way" of postwar progress. In his first exclusively radio talk of the campaign, the New York governor asserted that the annual cost of government considering the likelihood of a $300,000,000,000 national debt and the necessity of maintaining "adequate armed forcea," would require federal levies far above prewar levels. "But it Is utterly Impossible to suppose that we can support our government by levying heavy taxes upon a dwindling national Income," he declared, as his campaign advisers sat grouped near him in office-study in the executive mansion. "Our first aim," he continued, "must be to increase our national income by putting to work all of the productive resources of our country industry, labor and agr culture. It is far better to have low tax rate with a national in come of $150,000,000,000 than a na tional Income of $76,000,000,000 and a high tax rate, as we had under the new deal at its peacetime best His first step, Dewey said, would be to urge revision of personal exemptions "so that the man who makes as little as $11 a week no longer has an income tax taken out of his pay envelop." "However necessary these taxes may be in wartime," he declared "there can be no excuse for them In peace." Dewey made no direct reference to proposals to increase wartime taxes above their present levels, such as Pres. Roosevelt's request to coneress last winter for an $8,000, 000.000 boost in levies. Wendell L. Willkie, the 1940 GOP nominee, subsequently said ihis projected total should be doubled but congress responded with an increase of slightly more than $2,000,000,000. Dewey said, that the people "cheerfully pay high taxes to meet the cost of the war." "But the taxes we are paying today are not Just for war," .he added. "They also go to pay for the waste and extravagance of the sprawling bureaucracy built up by the new deal in these last 12 years. Remarking that "it has reached a point where every time a woman powders her face there is a tax of 20 per cent on the powder," he pro posed the eventual elimination of all excise levies except those on alcoholic beverages, tobacco and gasoline. The nominee called lor a com plete overhauling of present revenue statutes, insisting that a basic and "generally stable" tax law should be written that could be adjusted from time to time and that a national policy be established "directed toward achieving full employment and a rising national income." r IK- ."HA to amok too nrach..; or overindulge in eating er drinking... that load to exceaa acidity, causing stomach distress, heartburn, gas and restless nights. but its SMART to take PHILLIPS MILK OF MAGNESIA Liquid or Tablets r:S?""r i' Acknowledged by doctor as an ideal laxative-antacid, genuine Phillips' works a double wonder overnight. 1.

(UP) A war labor board panel probably will be sent to Houston for a hearing on the dispute between the Mosher Steel company and 300 slcelwork-ers who have been on strike since Sept. 7, it was believed Wednes day. Frank Hardesty, regional director of the International Steel Workers of America (CIO), revealed he has telephoned a request for the hear ing to Cliff Potter, regional WLB director of the disputes division. "It appears very probable the WLB will grant our request," Hard estv said. The hearing request followed Tuesday afternoon's union-management meeting at which the company refused to fire present workers in order to make places for the strikers, who voted to return to work provided the company would not discriminate against them. E. J. Mosher, company official, issued a statement saying the Mosher management "can not and will not agree to the demands of union officials that it lay off employes who are now working in order to provide Jobs for those currently engaged in the strike." The walkout came more than three weeks ago in protest against the company's refusal to comply with a WLB directive ordering in clusion of a maintenance of membership and vacation clause in a new contract FDR Wants War Workers to Get Soldier Benefits CATCH CRESCENT CITY, Calif., Oct 4.

He jumped astride the deer's back, slashed its throat with a pen knife and brought his prize ashore. WASHINGTON, Oct. 4. Pres. Roosevelt, signing two bills providing tools for the shift from war work, has served notice that his administration wants something more treatment for laid-off war workers "no less fair" than that given farmers and returning veterans. I Mr. Roosevelt put his signature "with considerable reluctance" I Tuesday to the surplus property j bill which Surplus Adm. William i uiayton nss canea unworxaDie. With less distaste he approved the overall demobilization act creating an office of war mobilization and reconversion. But Mr. Roosevelt expressed his hope that congress, when it reconvenes aftpr elections, will "promptly" rectify what he called deficiencies in the latter measure. Still needed to complete the kit of reconversion tools, he said, are back-home travel pay for discharged workers, nationwide minimum standards of unemployment benefits and unemployment pay for federal employes. As it stands, the bill It a "states' rights" measure, with the federal government guaranteeing the state payments by providing help when state funds are low. Mr. Roosevelt noted that "fair and generous treatment" for returning servicemen and reconverting industry had been provided, nlnnp with nrire simnort for farm ers. "We should be no less fair in our treatment of war workers, he added. Prompt congressional study of what the government will spend and do to help out in the postwar Job hunt has been promised by Chmn. Doughton (D-NC) of the house ways and means committee. But it will wait until after elections when, as Doughton said, the air will not be "polluted with political considerations." Smashing Melons Lifelong Ambition MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 4 P) Police Judge D.

Letming Sr Co., Inc. 7m To help our many customer-friends and distributors, we make this second Del Monte report on canned fruit and vegetable prospects In just the last few weeks since we last reported to you on canned fruit and vegetable prospects three important things have happened: the War Food Administration has increased percentages of several items to be set aside for military use. weather has definitely cut down a number of pack estimates. the manpower situation has become more difficult. That is why Del Monte, as the leading canner of fruits and vegetables, is continuing to issue this wartime series of reports. During this emergency, all of us must work together. Only with knowledge of what lies ahead can any housewife intelligently plan her shopping or understand the problems facing her grocer. Fruit Situation Tight Peaches are a good example of what can happen to a canning crop. Prospects were good for a bumper yield of fresh peaches in California, when stretches of extremely hot weather matured the fruit so fast that canneries could not handle the full crop with available manpower. This cut down the whole industry's pack. Though we had hoped to do better, it now looks as if the total national pack this year will be only about average, or slightly over average at best, A month ago, the industry knew the government's requirements for canned peaches would be very heavy. Since then, the Quartermaster's Department has upped its quotas still further. This means that supplies for civilians will be materially less than last year, On pears, while the pack turned out better than early estimates and will probably exceed last year's, government needs are larger also, and the amount of canned pears on your grocer's shelves will be very small. The industry hopes to "put up" slightly more fruit cocktail than last year but quotas for our fighters have also grown so again, it means less of this popular fruit at your grocer's. Del Monte Pineapple and Pineapple Juice will be still scarcer than last year. Pineapple is a two-year crop. The drought of 1943 meant that we were not able to pack a normal amount in 1944 in spite of a favorable ripening season. Military requirements have also been increased. The good news in the fruit picture is apricots. A bumper crop resulted in the largest pack on record. Though military wants are twice as great as in 1943, you can expect as many Del Monte Apricots as you ever did. In total, fruits will be available to civilians in very limited quantities. Total Civilian Vegetable Supply About 20 Less On vegetables as on fruits remember that we are telling the story of total supply and what is likely to happen on the home front if present military demands continue. However, this picture could radically change on vegetables if the government reduced quotas out of this year's pack, or released substantial quantities from reserves. In our last report, we estimated that the industry's pack of canned peas would be less. Now we know the amount available for civilians will be about a fifth less than last year. The government quota on corn has not increased. But the total crop was smaller and the supply for civilians will be considerably less than last year. Asparagus production slightly exceeded last yearrMilitary needs also increased, so the civilian supply is approximately the same as last season. It is expected that the supply of green beans will be slightly less. We had hoped to have good news on beets and carrots. But the armed forces asked the industry to supply them with three times as many carrots as last year, and twice as many beets. So even if packers succeed in producing a much larger volume, civilians won't see as many as last year, The canned tomato pack will not be completed before the end of October. However, it now appears that it will be less than last year. Consequently the amount available for home consumption will be materially less because the government has almost doubled its requirements. On the whole, the civilian supply of canned vegetables apparently will be about one-fifth less than last year, barring reduction in government quotas or release from its reserves. But whatever Del Monte Products ore avciifibie, you should be cble to get your share of them. As we said before, Del Monte Foods will be apportioned to distributors throughout the country on a fair and square basis. This has been our policy ever since the war began. Del Monte deliveries are also spread throughout the year, so you can usually expect to find at least some varieties of Del Monte Fruits and Vegetables at your grocer's. You have a right to your share of these Del Monte Foods, so don't hesitate to ask for them. If you can't find just the one you want, you may still find some other Del Monte variety that will serve your purpose. That's one advantage of learning how to "switch and swap" within the Del Monte line. Del Monte packs so many different products, that no matter which varieties happen to be short, you can choose any other Del Monte Food your grocer has and always be sure of the same quality and flavor, i Your Grocer's Troubles Aren't Over You can easily see, too, that all your grocer's problems are not solved. Remember that a leading brand like Del Monte is always the first to be taken from his shelves. Don't blame him for, shortages and inconveniences. Your cooperation is still needed to . help everyone in the food industry do a better job for you and for the servicemen fighting for you, 9 r Give to your COMMUNITY WAR CHEST at McKIXNON'S Jl
