He appeared before Conuhons against a background of demands voiced in many quarters for the Allies to disclose the exact role of the regime of Grand Admiral Karl Doe-nltz. But the Prime Minister made no direct mention of Weighing his words carefully, Mr. Churchill said he wanted time to cast the form of his reply before answering one member's question as to what was "the authority which purported to broadcast from Flens-burg in the name of the government alleged to be led by Admiral Doe-nitz." "I am not sure whether any machinery of government, whether central or regional, can be said to exist at present in Germany and in any case I should prefer in replying to this question to speak of administration rather than government," Churchill said. "In general, it is our aim that the Germans should administer their country fti obedience to Allied directions. We have no intention of undertaking the burdeit of administering Germany ourselves1." Just before going to Commons, Churchill conferred with Gen. Eisenhower, Field Marshal Montgomery, and Gen. Omar Bradley.

Charles G. Ross, the President's new press secretary, told his morning news conference: "There is going to be from this office, with the full approval of President Truman, the fullest possible flow Of information to the press and radio." Ross told reporters that he to answer all the questions that he could and that he would say so when he didn't have the information or couldn't disclose it. Ross added that to the very fullest extent possible the news would be given out through the press secretary's office, and -that "every effort will be made to give everybody a square deal." He said there had been no change in the President's plans to hold a presidential news conference once a week. Ross said he would look into the question of fixing a specific day each week for these conferences if a poll of Wednesday's reporters indicated that prevailing sentiment favored that course. Previously the President has called his conferences when he- has had important news to disclose. Ross also said he would try to see that advance notices of the Presi mend any action.

So 1 had to jump onto a PT boat that was alongside the cruiser. I thought I'd never make it, but I did, gauging the rise and fall of the two craft as best I could in the dim light and landing on all fours. Then getting a handhold and foothold on that dangling rope ladder was something, too, and when I tumbled over the rail at the top I swore I'd never leave the cruiser again till we got to home base.
