WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 3, 1945 Y AID VISITS PRISON GAMPS Checks Recreational, Religious Program y° rk -- A visiting represent V M o A War P rison ers aid of the nf «r ·?" a Participating service of the national war fund/has just entered a great prison camp in Germany. Confined here are many thousands of men of several different nationalities. If he .interviewed each man for only 5 minutes, working 8 hours a day, 6 days a^week he would probably spend more than a year uninterruptedly to this camp. ' . . . Instead, he may be limited to a few hours, before hurrying along to tne next camp. So he talks with the commandant, and the elected leaders of the prisoners and o£ the various camp activities. He checks what the camp has received of the many educational, recreational, re. .ligious and vocational training materials which the Y. M C A .supplies, and lists the "camp's present needs. . .It Is not surprising, therefore, that ; relatively few prisoners can be personally interviewed, or that many are served without realizing .the source of the service. There may be no credit line on the doors of the camp 'workshops, or 'on .some of the text books, musical instruments, athletic, goods and religious 'materials, which make endurable the soul-corroding years of captivity. And little worldly reward or recognition can ever accrue to the selfless men who visit the camps. F.R. Appoints Gillette to Surplus Unit Washington, (/?)-- Guy M. Gillette, whose term as a senator from Iowa ended Wednesday, was nominated by President Roosevelt to be the 3rd member of the surplus property board. The other 2 members, Robert Hurley and Lr. Col. Edward Heller, already have been confirmed by the senate. Gillette's nomination could not be presented in the last congress, under a law forbidding appointment of a legislator to any agency created during his term. Mr. Hoosevelt also sent to the senate again the nomination of Paul Porter to be a member of the federal communications commission. Porter, publicity chief for the democratic national committee during last year's campaign, was nominated during the last session, then given a recess appointment after the senate failed to ap- . prove the appointment before adjournment.

John M _ Coffee (D. Wash.) said Wednesday he xvould offer a resolution to the new congress calling for a- diplomatic break with the Franco government, in Spain based on an appeal Tuesday night by Dr. Juan Negrm, former Spanish prime minister. / Negrin, breaking a 5 year si- Jence, said in a message cabled from London to a mass meeting m Madison Square garden that Spanish r e p u b l i c a n s had considered themselves at war without interruption" against axis powers since July, 1936, and despaired of continued allied recognition of the Franco regime. (The British foreign office refused Negrin permission to broadcast a speech by shortwave to the rally on the grounds wartime permission- never was given for broadcasting political speeches and that Negrin, entering Britain as a refugee in 1940, foreswore political activity. The OWI in Washington said it would include a report of Negrin's message in its European broadcast.) Negrin said in his message, read to the rally by Charles S. Bolt that when Franco's forces took over, a Spanish government in exile had been set up in France Never did we capitulate," Negrin said. "Never did we surrender. Never did we for 1 sec- cond entertain the thought that we had been defeated. We did not, and do not now, admit that a temporary defeat could end the war nor that the will of the Spanish people could continue to be nullified by conspiracy and violence."
