i the congress "must reassert itself." * * * And while harmony iu the administration party hung in the balance, republicans likewise blasted at "bureaucracy" and "waste," and called for many chances in wartime government operations--all p o i n t i n g to rough and possible bitter days ahead in Washington. ¥ * * President Roosevelt, in an address that may vie in importance with his messages asking war on the axis, will appear before a joint session ol the senate and house Thursday to report on the state .of the union. Some leaders expect him to deal .not only with the progress of the conflict, and domestic problems, but to give some clue to his ideas on the peace to follow, in the writing of which this congress may take a place in world history. Congressional leaders w e r e expected o coufer with Mr. Roosevelt Wednesday on -the text of his message, and it was understood some would urge , him to skip any proposals for . social security revision or expansion, contending that such - propositions in wartime might , cause "an unnecessary fight that might disrupt the entire congressional program." , In pre-sesslon caucuses Tuesday. Sam Rayburn of Texas was nominated by the democrats for the -speakership, and the repub- · licans put forward their floor leader, Joseph W. Martin, Jr., of Massachusetts. Kayburn appeared certain to retain the chair, as the. democrats still hold 222 house seals to 208 for the republicans. The majority party re-elected John W. McCormaclc of Massachusetts as its floor leader. Senate democrats will caucus Thursday and republicans Friday to choose their leaders. The majority in that chamber is expected to retain Alben W. Barkley ot Kentucky and ,the republicans, Charles L. McNary, Oregon. ',. Many democrats hustled to ' Instill unity in Iheir ranks. Some regarded Rayburn's reported remarks about "bureaucrats" as directed to that end. The speaker was quoted as saying that, unlike Ifie "bureaucrats," Sir. Roosevelt made a practice of consulting congressional leaders on matters of policy. ' . 2f. % %. A number of democrats have ieen severely critical of various administrative bureaus, some con- lending that authority had been assumed by too broad interpretations of congressional acts. Rayburn's remarks were described by some who heard him as "a declaration of independence" for congress, and notice that the speaker would prevent legislation being put on his desk by bureau chiefs without prior conferences ·with the,house leadership and the proper .committees. · He was quoted as declaring to the 7 ' : caucus: "Department heads may come and go, but congress will live on long after their departure." The house republican caucus approved a minority party statement of policy, written by their leader, Martin, pledging themselves to devote their energies to co-operation in winning the war; curtailment of federal expenses; overhaul of Ihe tax structure; "preservation of constitutional government;" preservation of "private enterprise from destruction;" protection of "our free press;" ousting of "special privilege seekers from entrenched positions in government;" curbing oC the "reckless NONE PHONE 1606 ( DON'T HESITATE Convert to Coal and KEEP WARM!

The aged educator, who presided over the destim'es of the three centuries-old university for 24 years died alter a short illness. His family announced that funeral services would be held at the Harvard Memorial church in C a m b r i d g e on Saturday, at 11 a. m. During his term of oftice that began in 1909 and ended in 1933, President Lowell saw the enrollment of the university more than doubled and its endowment multiplied nearly six times, to more than S123.000.000. Numerous changes in student life, the inauguration of the tutorial plan, the system of general examinations, the establishment ol a new dormitory arrangement in which students at Harvard college were grouped in units, callec "houses," marked President Lowell's career. * A.

MILLER WITH U. S. FORCES ON GUADALCANAL, Dec. 20. (Delayed) (U.R)--War correspondents straddled the catwalk of the Flying Fortress "Typhoon McGoon II" Saturday niglit and gleefully "bombed" the Japanese at Munda. New Georgia island, with empty beer bottles. * * * It was the correspondents' re- venee for the sleepless nights they had endured durine the Japanese shelling and bombing of American positions on Guadalcanal. * * * How we personally could avenge the Japanese attacks was something that had been bothering us correspondents for a long time. Those frock - coated gentlemen who drafted the rules of war nt Geneva officially designated us as non-combatants, and a noncombatant is someone who mav be bombed, shelled, sniped at and even bayoneted, but who is expressly forbidden to wield a weapon in return. Then somebody--I think it was a Brooklyn fan who used to sit in the bleachers at Ebbets field-suggested "beer bottle bombing." A diligent search of the conventions of international war pro cedure failed to reveal any prohibition against this sort of activity on the part of non-combatants. News of the impending raid spread rapidly among American bases in the south Pacific and soon contributions o£ bottles were being transported many miles fo: the event. * * * Saturday night was ihe biff night. Shortly before midnight, "Typhoon McGoon II," commanded by Capt. Jack N. Lev! of Milwaukee. Wis.. took off on a bombine mission against the new Japanese air field at Munda, 150 miles to the northwest. "T.vnhoon" had high explosives in his bomb bay and beer bottles in his radio compartment. * * * When the fortress found Munda, its runway looking like a dirty chalk mark against the black outline of the island. Bombardier Tech. Sgt. Claude B. Phillips of Oneida. Tenn., told the correspondents to count 15 after the bombs fell before releasing their bottles. The bottles, he said, were lighter and would not fall as far forward as would the bombs. Then Phillips took up his post and each correspondent grabbed a half dozen bottles. They crept along the catwalk as the big bomb bay doors opened, exposing the south Pacific and a cluster of small islands. Loud clicks marked the release of the medium bombs * * * "One. two. three, four, five --" counted the correspondents, but they couldn't wait and each Plopped a bottle through the bomb bay doors in a slojv curve. * ·¥ ¥ Then more bombs, and more bottles cascaded out of "Typhoon '' A few seconds later the plane passed over the runway, but it was impossible-to see the result of the bombing. When the supply of bombs and beer bottles was exhausted, the fortress roared homeward. Our only regret was that aJ) those bot- les were empty when loaded on the plane.

NEW TIME TONIGHT WEDNESDAY to hear my program "Mayor of the Town" --says LIONEL BARRYMORE 8 TO SH P.M KGLO by N«w Soapy Rich Knttt Revise Food Marketing 3RD OF BUTTER NEEDED IN WAR Other Actions Expected as Shortages Continue WASHINGTON, (U.R) _ Food Administrator Claude R. Wickard Thursday was expected to follow up his drastic cuts in civilian supplies of butter and canned citrus fruits with important revisions in marketing processes to assure more equitable distribution of food to civilians. Officials said shortages ol some foods have reached the point where something drastic must be done soon to meet complaints arriving from virtually all areas. They emphasized that local shortages generally are the result of poor distribution, but that is little consolation to the housewife who finds only bare meat counters and encounters difficulty in buying bacon, butter, eggs and lard. * * * Wickard's latest food orders --No. 2 and 3--were designed to assure adequate supplies of butter and canned citrus fruit for American armed forces and other united nations, * * * He directed butter manufacturers to set aside for war uses at least 30 per cent of all creamery butter stocks--a move expected to lower average annual civilian butter consumption f r o m 16 pounds during 1942 to 13 pounds this year. Butter is on the list of foods for rationing soon. The citrus order was more severe. It directed producers to reserve for the government the total pack of canned citrus fruits except unconcentrated grapefruit juice. Effective at midnight Wednesday night, the order freezes carmers' grapefruit juice stocks from Jan. 9 until April 1 but does not affect supplies held by wholesalers and retailers. Wickard said the citrus order should not affect civilian diets seriously because large supplies of fresh grapefruit, oranges, tangerines and lemons will be available. * * * The butter order will make available to the government approximately 531,000,000 of the 1,770,000,000 pounds of butter expected to be produced in 1943. The government probably will buy the stocks earmarked for it at the cciline price of 46 cents a pound, Chicago basis. * * * At least two-thirds of the butler to be reserved for the government will go directly to American fighting men, Wickard said, and most of the remainder of it will go to the soviet union. Farm and small dairy producers are not affected, the order applying only to manufacturers with a total output of 12,000 pounds or more a month. Even so officials said, that will cover between 95 nnd 97 per cent of all creamery butter output. Meanwhile, food distribution officials indicated that a study oC the entire national food situation is being made with a view to changes in civilian distribution pending nationwide rationing of additional foods. They emphasized that temporary local shortages would be relieved probably late next month when rationing begins on meats and on other foods such as canned fruits and vegetables, and probably butter later. Former Ammunition Handler, Now Chaplain at Camp Atterbury CAMP ATTERBURY, Ind., /P) --The Hev. Oscar F. Bohman, former Spencer, Iowa, pastor, lias reversed the order of "Praise tlic Lord and Pass the Ammunition." He was an ammunition handler during six months overseas in World war I.
