Bee. 3. —Repre- sentativ.e £arl BInshaw (R-CaI}f.), said in a House /speech today thaj: the ''cost plus fixed fee" control system was responsible for troubles in defense industries. "The Vultee strike fe over Nit the problem it preaeiito in not solved," he MI id. "The attorney general has rightly condemned the {Communist interest in promoting such strikes in defense industries and we her* join him heartily in that condemnation. Vet condemnation does not solve • problem. "This problem extends in many directions but the tap ropt is the 'cost plus' contract, an evil considered to be necessary in these times. "The cost-plug contract leads labor to believe that increased \vages are of little consequence to the manufacturer, and the manufacturer meantime knows that most all of his profit will be taxed away from him as execs* profits. "For the good of alj and in th« best interest of our government and Its budget, I earnestly propose that both labor and industry consider sharing the pjus in the cost-plus rather than raising the cost." Kern Will Receive New Congressman (Continued From Page One) populations and a stable House membership of 435. Two /Systems Available If Congress so chooses, it may reject that method and order ^apportionment based oij another complicated method, known as the equal portions system. The results would be virtually the same as in the census bureau method except that Michigan would be eliminated from the gainers' column and Arkansas from the losers'. Of the states which will lose representation, only Kansas, Nebraska and Oklahoma actually dropped in population during; the last decade. Three other states which lost numerically will not lose representation. They are Vermont, with only one congressman, and North and South Dakota, which have two congressmen each. California, the largest gainer, also increased its population the most, final figures showed. During the decade ended April 1, 1940, the popula- "I Am" Judge in Cult Swindle Case Warns Jurors (U*ittd Pnss Leased Win) TOS ANGELES, Dec. 3.—Proepec- *-t tive jurorg at the trial of nine persons of the "I Am" cult today received a warning from Federal Judge Leon R. Yankwlch that they were not summoned "to investigate anyone's religious beliefs." The judge pointed out that the bill of rights forbids persecution of persona because of their religious convictions. "But," he added, "religion cannot be uied as a cloak to cover violations of the law and certain law* of the United States prohibit the doing of certain acts." Judge Yankwich spent most of the morning reading charges contained in the 19-count indictment accusing the nine defendants of a $3,000,000 mail swindle. The small courtroom was filled to capacity when the trial opened. Many of the white-garbed followers of the "I Am" movement took notes as Judge Yankwlch began questioning prospective jurors. He eliminated several immediately after they said they had read about the case and heard it referred to in radio broadcasts, thus forming positive opinions. The nine persons on trial are all self-styled "divine messengers" of the movement which the government accuses of operating as a "charity" organization, when, federal attorneys charge, its actual purpose was to defraud persons who contributed millions to the cult.

WISH OFFENSIVE PUNS CUT FOOD tion of California increased 1,230,136—from 6,677,251 to 6,907,387. The increase was partly traceable to the large number of refugees from the "dust bowl" states, all of which lost population. The -otfteiritertEs which -increased their representation also recorded population gains, ranging from 63,688 for Arizona to 429, 203 for Florida. The congressional representation of Texas, however, will remain unchanged, despite a rise of more than 500,000 in population. The final population figures showed few changes from the preliminary enumeration released last September. The overall figure for the United States was fixed at 131,669,275, a rise of 8,894,229 or 7.2 per cent over the 1930 total of 122,774,048. Preliminary estimates had set the 1940 figure at 131,409,881, a gain of almost exactly 7 per cent. (Associated Press Leased Wire) 1ONDON, Dec. 3.—Lord Woolton, i-i food minister, warned Britons that more shipping would be diverted from food importation to military purposes, but announced today a Christmas "gift" of increased sugar and tea rations for the week of December 16. He said the nation had undertaken the offensive to settle "old scores" with Italy which would "mean a drain of the country's shipping facilities." Except for a limited quantity of oranges, the food ministry said, no more cargoes of fresh or tinned fruit will be brought to Britain for the time being except loadings already NW'4 and of NW% section 3Q, 2X-25. is modified as to extension of time of drilling- to November 10, 1943, etc. Declarations of Trust 30450—E.

In Mojave, "nearly every house in one blocU has been hit by the influenza," which is reported to have been "especially heavy" during the past week. .Southern California was today "feeling the brunt of the scourge for the first time, with schools closed and half empty." In Los Angeles, every substitute school teacher was called into duty to replace the 703 instructors ill with influenza. At Santa Barbara, schools closed after the absence rate hit 53 per cent. The state department of public health recognized the severity of the epidemic when it called for daily reports from afl health departments to replace normal weekly statements.

"We have to carry our forces ^^oyerseas—arid overseas is the proper place for Britain to be at war," Woolton said yesterday in a speech at Manchester. "As we are going to lose a part of our food ships to take part in this offensive, I cannot afford to bring you any longer those things which are not essential for prosecution of the war. "Does that matter? We have a standard of life that the rest of Europe lias envied, but now we are going into the offensive." He said the British had "been much too patient for much too long even before the war started in submitting to the blustering bounce of the Italian pseudo-dictator. There is every reason for hope that before long we shall find purselves settling old scores and to that end we have mobilized the whole resources of the country."

Corjron, Jr., represented the defendants. believed that traffic should be diverted to H street in order- that an overload of fast traffic on Chester avenue be averted. Freal A. Nlghbert. the city manager's brother, stated, "I believe that Chester avenue i» the logical place for a subway." He urged that traffic stop signs be erected on Chester to eliminate speeding. W. F. Bray, a resident of H street, advised the council to locate the subway at Chester avenue unless plans call for widening of H street south of the tracks. If widened, he favored H street for a subway site. F. W. Kampe came out strongly for the Chester avenue subway location. "Re-route Impossible" Larry King announced, "It is as impossible to re-route traffic from Chester to H street—with an H street subway—as it is to re-route the flight of birds from north to south." He contended that his business, the Hayward Lumber company, would be materially injured by an H street subway. At this point a woman in the audience arose and said., "I hope the noise of local ax-grinding doesn't do pakersfield out of its underpasses." Bill Willis told the council, "Chester avenue in the spot for the subway, but tot the people vote on the location." Agreeing with Mr. Willis, Mayor George E. Wilson said, "I would not vote for either place that has been recommended." He apparently referred tp H street and the Twenty- sixth street overpass. He favored a popular vote on the locations. City Clerk Vance Van Riper Informed the council that the location election and a bond election could not come on the same ballot. The council, in open session without a vote taken, agreed to lay the propositions over until the public can vote on the matters.

The proceedings were sluggish from tho start and at the close minor declines predominated. Transfers of around 450,000 shares were the smallest for a full session in about six weeks. In brokerage offices excuses for the indifferent action of the list were numerous and varied. Among these was a little more pessimism over the outlook for the British as the Nazis took further toll of shipping and English industrial centers. Almost as important from a bearish standpoint, it was said, was the prospect for mounting taxes next year. Additional offerings to adjust accounts for year-end incomes tax statements were evident but switching to other stocks helped offset this Influence to some extent. 0 U 8T4 Now York Close Purnjfhcd by J.
