Taylor in distribution of American relief for Italy, said Monday that the Italian people, whose greatest agricultural areas have been devastated by the war or are still in German hands, would be in need of outside relief for years to come. Barr, who will return to Italy this week, told a press conference that six shipments, totalling 2,500 tons of clothing, vitamins, and medical supplies already had been distributed in six central province's encompassing the bitterly contested area between the Gustav and Hitler lines. All distribution is made through an Italian national committee, Barr said. "We are not spending any money in Italy'to distribute relief." The food problem is particularly acute, Barr said, because in addition to battle destruction the Germans mined every home and field in the Abruzzi mountain area, seat of partisan activity, making it impossible to harvest such crops as FALSE TEETH Roek.

Wallace, whose term as vice president ends five days hence, remained a mystery Monday but best guesses were that he might serve in a cabinet post d u r i n g President Roosevelt's fourth term. Speculation that Wallace would receive a high administration assignment was heightened by the disclosure that during the past \veek he turned down several high-salaried job offers in private industry. Wallace,' who served as secretary of agriculture during Mr. Roosevelt's first two terms, is known to favor the post o£ secretary of commerce, now held by his political foe, Jesse Jones. The labor and interior departments also have been among the many jobs mentioned for Wallace. The only previous vice president who subsequently served in a cabinet office was John C. Calhoun, who was secretary of state under President James Polk. Calhoun, however, served a term in the senate between the two positions. . - . WHEELER ASKS FEDERATION Calls Dumbarton Oaks a Tyrannical Plan Washington, (UPj--Sen. Burton K. Wheeler, D., Mont., Monday denounced the Dumbarton Oaks security council agreement as a plan to "underwrite tyranny." He proposed as a substitute a federation- of European nations to prevent future wars. Wheeler, the senate's most outspoken critic of the administration's conduct of foreign affairs, denounced the present trend of In- ternationa! relations and predicted in a lengthy senate speech' that Power politics eventually would lead to war with Russia. ; He questioned the genuineness of unity among the big three allies, asserting that it was, born of necessity and amounted to nothing more.than "an international shotgun wedding." He charged that declarations of principles voiced in the past by the big three are being emasculated under the pressure of current international affairs. . - Quoting at length from past public pronouncements of allied leaders, Wheeler said the indispensable minimum for a just, honorable, and lasting peace should include: · Disarmament, absolution of conscription, non-aggression pacts, clear-cut definitions of aggression, the principle of non-intervention in internal or external affairs of another state, the equal sovereignty of all nations large and small, the inviolability of human freedom and personality, proscription .o£ the use of force between nations as a means of settling disputes, and international organization based on consent, guarantee of equal access to raw materials and markets for victory and vanquished. "One by one," Wheeler said, "these three great powers have repudiated these principles with what has .amounted to a rising stream of exceptions, 'reservations and reversals of policy until today, after many long months of preparation, discussion and deliberation, they have turned up before the world with the Dumbarton Oaks proposal." And this proposal, he charged, as it now stands would "emasculate the good neighbor policy, override the principle of sovereign equality of all nations," and set up -a powerful military alliance to enforce a peace the terms of which are. riot yet known. Wheeler was severely critical of the Russian attitude toward Poland and the Baltic and Balkan states. . He recalled tha£ from 1917 to 1939' Russia was a leader in opposition to armaments and military: conscription and in her .advocacy of non-aggression pacts. But the picture has been different, he said, since Russia invaded Poland in 1939. Addressing persons who say that Russia has no desire to take over control oC Europe, Wheeler said: ' "This is the most unrealistic interpretation of history that could be imagined. Whether Mr. Stalin has changed his mind or not, the fact remains that the present situation in Europe is disintegrating normally, socially and economically and politically to such an extent that it is now obvious that the whole tragic European situation has gotten out of hand. Europe is being forced into Mr. Stalin's embrace whether he wants it or not." nations, cartels, quotas or other barriers to bur economy." "The mere possession of these things . . . will be worth more to us in the way of self-confidence and respect from others than the money we would get from the sale," he said. GONNALLY PLAN GETS APPROVAL Both Parties Want Provisional Council Washington, (/P) -- Bi-partisan approval -sprang up Monday for a proposal that the united nations form a provisional council to handle world political problems. . The plan is the brainchild of Chairman Connally (D.-Tex.), of the senate foreign relations committee. ·- Under it, the cguncil would work to settle controversial issues among the allies pending ratification of the treaty for a peace-keeping organization. The chairman of the senate foreign relations committee plans to lay his Idea before Secretary of State Stettinins this week. Supporters of it immediately suggested that President Roosevelt · take the proposal alone when he meets Prime Minister Churchill and Premier Stalin. Senator Ball (R.-Minn.), told a reporter that if the plan is accepted it might constitute a 'long step toward bringing about a just peace. "Think Senator Connally's suggestion for the establishment of an interim advisory council to consider urgent international issues which cannot be delayed, pending ratification and establishment. of the permanent united nations organization, is very constructive" Ball said. "If our major allies would accept such a procedure, agreeing in the meantime that no more unilateral decision would be made and that all .decisions previously made would be subject to review by the proposed council, I believe we would have taken a long step toward that just and lasting peace we are seeking. I hope the president will Jake this proposal with him to the forthcoming conference with Churchill and Stalin." It Is Connally's idea that when the foil dress diplomatic conference agrees, probably this spring,' on the terms of a world security organization, that U set up the provisional council to act in an advisory capacity while the long process of treaty ratification Is under way. He said that while the temporary group would have no force at its command, it would be backed by the weight of opinion ol the united nations in attempting to settle controversial issues · on a Favor Gillette as Chairman of Committee Washington, (If)--Plans for the world's biggest clearance sale-the disposal of an estimated $100,000,000,000. worth of surplus government property--shaped into firmer outline Monday following 2 significant weekend developments. Bernard M. Baruch, President Roosevelt's informal economic consultant, recbmmended "self- containment" for the United States and retention of government control over stockpiles of raw materials obtained at great expense from faraway comers of the globe. And, with the senate set for all- but-automatic confirmation of former Senator Gny M. Gillette as a member of the surplus property board, sentiment was mounting in favor of his designation as chairman. The decision is President Roosevelt's, but it is an open secret that the Iowa democrat's former colleagues favor him for the chairmanship over either of the other 2 members, former Gov. Robert A. Hurley of Connecticut or Lt Col. Edward Heller of San Fran- C4SCO. Baruch's latest surplus property recommendations, a n informal follow-up to his report on the subject to Mr. Hoosevelt last year were made in reply to a letter of inquiry from Senator Johnson (D.-Colo.) "Efforts should be made to have this country develop self-containment in a very short time," Barach wrote. "This would not be done for the purpose of Injuring any other country, bat of giving constant evidence of our ability to take care of ourselves if w« are forced to do so. "It is not a threat to peace. It is a threat against war." He emphasized his belief that the government should keep control of its stock of non-perishable items produced outside of this continent. The stock, he said, would be needed in case of another war, or "lo prevent combi- T. L. Sears Goes on Contractor's Board Grading Contractors Elect Clear Laker for TRree Years T. L.

Lawyers Ask Punishment for Hitler Washington, (U.PJ--The National Lawyers Guild, protesting that Adolf Hitler may yet escape his deserved punishment on grounds of "sovereign immunity," warned Monday that the United States nust prevent abstract an empty :heory from blocking full retribu- 'ion from axis war criminals. It stated that there is a "firm basis in well-established principles of law" for punishment of war criminals and that legal technicalities must be avoided that would block their prosecution. The guild recommended that :he United States establish military or civilian commissions similar to the Russian investigating commissions. "Until this is done" t said, "it will be difficult to carry through with the trial arid punishment of the guilty." The statement coincided with reports that the work of the united nations war crimes commission in London was at a standstill, reportedly because it had ieen ignored by the British foreign office. Dispatches from London said the foreign office favored exile, rather than capital punishment, for such criminals as Hitler The Lawyer's Guild expressed concern over reluctance to apply :lie death penalty. The doctrine of 'sovereign immunity," it said should be applied to "the friendly sovereign, not the hostile one." The guild declared that prosecution of war criminals was 'bound up with the problem of achieving a secure and lasting peace." As long as war criminals are permitted their freedom, it said, -"they will constitute a threat to the security of the world and a source of disunity among the united · nations."
