' ' · · ' · · · ' · · . - · · There's a story around this town that colonels and majors and captains and; lieutenants spend all their time messing : around cocktail bars.' ' . Rep. Adolph Sabath (D., 111.) i one of the sponsors of the story. He took a. fast gander around one place and reckoned that there were 3D.OM officers who didn't seem to" be doing anything. So, in this manpower shortage -lis would be .a good time to put them to good use, he told the house rules committee. So. we went out to find out. And, somebody's wrong, like we said. It grieves us deeply to disagree with Judge Sabath who is one of our favorite people. This search was nq hit and miss affair.. It was conducted in all good faith, and it didn't produce for a minute any 30,000 officers lighting the war in'cocktail bars. To make it authentic, we 'took along with us a navy lieutenant who kept saying, "Stop counting me twice in'every place! 1 ' There was the May newer hotel, Pride of capital town. The cocktail bar was crowded. There were ?^ I ^* fa i $ ' Jfolu ' WAVES, two CS (including a captain) and an enlisted man. How could he afford that 65 cents a drink? "Well, I'll tell you, Mac," he said, "it's pretty stiff but I've never been in this town before and I want to do. it right. Don't ask me anything more, I'm having a party." There was the Shpreham, quite a place. Perhaps 3.00 people, mostly old folks. A handful of navy officers, one or two army men. There was the Statler a very fancy joint indeed. The room was peopled all right Again it was old guys and old dolls. Four WAVES came in. It Was like fresh air Along came the Baleigh. It is so close to the office somebody is going to ask why we didn't go there first. So what happens? On Pennsylvania avenue, of all places, everybody is in skirts or is sporting a game leg. -Now that's the way it was. This might have been a bad night. But just off hand, it comes out like this:' ' ' Perhaps l.or 2 per cent of the population in the night clubs' consisted of army or navy or marine corps officers. Those who were there included a neat percentage o£ guys wearing such things as.three battle-stars from the Pacific theater. A good share of the armed forces loisting a small libation included WAVES and WACS. . So--somebody's wrong like we said. STATEMENT BY PETER CANCELED Withdraws Statement Opposing Regency London, (ff)--Young King Peter Yugoslavia barely escaped what ome Yugoslavs consider would be Jolitical suicide Thursday by a ast-minufe withdrawal of a state- nent which a high Yugoslav of- icial said would have refused approval for creation of a regency. "The kins had prepared a memorandum in which he explained he could not accept the regency proposal," the official said, "but he apparently received word at the ist minute from the highest quar- ers to withdraw it and cancel the press conference." Although the last minute development was not explained, the re- iQrt immediately circulated in the Jugoslav embassy witliout official :onfirmation that Prime Minister Churchill had personally intervened to persuade the king not to ssue the statement. I The Yugoslav official explained i hat Peter's memorandum was | vritten without consultation or raowledge of his premier, Dr.! van Sub a sic or the royal Yugo- ' lav government Premier Subasic has been in Condon several weeks, following he reaching of agreement with larshal. Tito, in Yugoslavia, en- eavoring to gain acceptance o£ he compromise program- which would weld the royal- government -ind the Tito following. One angle, t the agreement is understood to acceptance of a regency by 'eter, pending a settlement of Yugoslavias constitutional prob- ems. Yugoslav officials said that the tnation had now reached a point where Peter, dosged with cabinet rises for 3 years, must now act nickly or risk loss of his throne. "As a result of. Thursday's ·de- velopments," one official said, "the cing must make some sort of statement. If he refuses to accept the egency he wilt be committing po- Uical suicide." jermans Turn in Jniforms of Dead o Clothing Drive London, (K)--The Berlin radio aid Thursday that relatives of German soldiers who have been .illed in action have been ordered o turn in all uniforms in their ossession to aid the current win- er clothing drive.
