Asks Order to Stop Black Market Tickets Washington, (/P) -- A t t o r n e y jeneral Francis Biddle proposed o congress Monday enactment of legislation to wipe out so-called black markets in the sale'of railroad tickets. Chairman McCarran (D. Nev) said Biddle told a closed session of the senate" judiciary committee he would send up a bill aimed at "black markets" generally This legislation, McCarran said would make it a criminal offense to "split money" with purchasers of tickets or of any services or coirimodities at above ceilinK prices. General Biddle cited instances where he said hotel bellhops have Mid railway employes high prices 'or tickets and later sold them to lotel guests for premium rates," McCarran said. The committee will investigate such reports, McCarran said, dur- ng hearings on Biddle's bill.

First" Army, Belgium, Jan, U--(Delayed)--(.flFV- Few, soldiers on the battlefield ever jump the gap between a corporal and an officer--but here's one who won his lieutenant's bars in a foxhole. Cpf. Richard C. Stockwell, Chillicothe, M6., was lying in hig'fox- hole on Christmas eve thinking of other things than a promotion. He and the men around him were helping break up a counter-attack. · Up crawled an' officer--Lt. Robert O. Beadle of Richfield Springs, 'Tor yon," he (Tinned, handing over some papers to the surprised corporal. The papers Informed StoekweU he »« now * 2nd lieutenant in Uncle Sun's army as a result of battle valor. He was immediately sworn in. That evening^this 2nd armored division's newest shavetail and his rifle company saw a column of 21 German vehicles coming along the road. They hid by the roadside until the enemy column was in the midst of the American lines. Then the Yanks, yelling like pirates, rushed out and began boarding the enemy vehicles. The nazi crews fought back savagely. The Germans and Americans locked in man to man combat under a bright' winter moonlight. "We used every type of weapon--even rocks it they were the only things handy," one soldier said. At the height of the battle Stockwell swung -his carbine to club a German in front of him. An enemy in his rear tore it from his grasp. But before the Jerry could swing on Stockwell one of the lieutenant's men quickly bayoneted the enemy. "The Jerry in front o'f me ran away," said Stockwell. The battle ended with all the Serman vehicles in American hands and 65 enemy dead lying around. Not a bad debut for a 2nd lieutenant. One stubborn little Mexican- American machine gunner with the 2nd infantry division is credited by his commanding officer with killing 100 Germans in a Battle during which he fired 5 000 rounds in the face of point blank fire from a tiger royal tank Assigned the task of protecting nls company's flank as it withdrew under pressure from Gernan armor and Infantry attack 'rom 3 sides, Pfc. Jose M. Lopez, Brownsville, Texas, killed 10 Germans as they were about to overrun foxholes ot his buddies Then the little 5 foot, 4 inch junner mowed down a'columa of 24 surprised German infantrymen following the nazi tiger royal. Although the tank fired 2 shells at him at close range he raked :he shattered column "of p a n i c stricken Germans. Lopez fought on alone after his company withdrew, moving about he. battlefield and taking wave after wave of attacking infantrymen under his fire. Five times he changed the position of his gun and 6 times the tank cut loose on him with its 88 Two More Admirals Reported Dead by Japs By The Associated Press Two more Japanese admirals are dead, Domei reported S u n d a y light in a broadcast intercepted by the federal communications commission. The deaths of .Vice Adm. Sadamichi Kajioka and Bear Adm vimegoro Kameyama brought to Hf the number of Japanese admirals reported to have died in active duty since May, 1944. The announcement did not-reveal how or where the officers died ASK PRIORITY FOR HOUSING Labor Wants Legislation to Top Peacetime Acts W a s h i n g t o n , (U.R) -- Labor spokesmen Monday asked congress to give postwar housing "top priority ratings" over other peacetime legislation. Plans for "minimum" construction of 15,000,000 h o m e s in 10 years were submitted to a' senate subcommittee on postwar housing by representatives of the American Federation of Labor who said "armchair builders and parlor planners will not build postwar housing." The labor men, Harry C Bates chairman of the AP.L. housing committee, and Boris Shoskin secretary, called for "candid realism" in planning. They described the A.F.L. program as "the least expected, the most productive and the most powerful generator of postwar employment." It advocates: Creation of a national housing board to be responsible for allover policy. Slum clearance and rehousing at a rate of 500,000 dwelling units annually. A long-term urban redevelopment program "to replan and rebuild our towns and cities for sound and stable growth." Creation of county housing authorities to provide rural housing for low-income families in the country. Bates and Shuskin told the committee construction of l.SOOiOOO housing units, a year would provide 6,500,000 jobs directly as well as 10,000,000 other jobs to fill demand for household appliances and furnishings. Republicans to Begin Study of Tax Structure Washington, (U.PJ -- House Republican Leader Joseph W. Martin, Jr., Mass., revealed Monday "hat a tax committee of 23 house republicans soon will begin a study of the nation's tax structure in an effort to convert it from "a punitive to an incentive system." The group, created from the last congress and headed by Rep. Daniel A. Reed, N. Y., will emphasize adjustment of rates and simplification of returns. It will review personal income taxes, corporate . ncome, excess profits, sales levies, capital gains, renegotiation and reconversion. "Our taxing' system still represents a patchwork which has been uilt up over the years," Martin said. "The strains and.stresses of jostwar conditions will dem'and a system which businessmen i and ndividuals can at least under- · stand." ' : , . · - - - = . Begins Training Plan or Express Workers New Tori, (U.PJ--Eight thous- sand men and women are now attending monthly classes in air and rail express subjects under an em- ploye-training program adopted a year ago by the Hailway Express Agency, L-_O. Head, president, announced. As the war progressed and more men were called into service-there are now 21,000 express company employes in the armed forces --it became increasingly evident hat steps had to be taken to train new employes, hence the training irogram was inaugurated to facilitate handling of the wide range of commodities that move in express channels. While the training program is under the direction of the public relations department here, the vork is carried on in the 13 operating areas by which the company covers the country, with district ocal supervisors in charge of training, in especially equipped classrooms in terminals and offices.
