Judge MASON CITYAN SELECTED FOR FEDERAL BENCH - Nomination Referred to Judiciary Group Before Senate Action W a s h i n g t o n, (fPf--President Roosevelt Friday nominated Henry N, Graven of Mason City for the Northern Iowa federal district judgeship. The nomination was sent to the senate where it was referred to \ the judiciary committee. Under senate procedure, the committee will call a public hearing before acting on the nomination. Graven, 50, a state district judge, will succeed Federal Judge George C. Scott of. Sioux City, resigned. Senator Gillette (D.-iowa) recommended Graven for the post from a list of 2G applicants. Gillette said this is the first time that a democrat has been nominated for federal judge of the Northern Iowa district. The senator said' the choice was d i f f i c u l t because there were 20 aspirants, all able lawyers w i t h experience and judicial qualifications. "The department of justice conducted an independent investigation and in the meantime had requested me to recommend one ot the list as my choice." Gillette .said. "I recommended T. E. Diamond of Sheldon. '·Mr. Diamond was past the age limit which the president had specified for federal j u d i c i a r y ap- poinlmenls. The department of justice advised me that due to this policy tile president could not nominate Mr. Diamond. "Al the same lime the department stated that as a result of its investigation, it had selected the names of 3 men, anyone of whom ivould--be satisfactory lo the |J.c- paremnt. On this list \vere Jesse Marshall of Sioux City. Judge Henry Graven of Mason City and Luke Li nun n of Algona. "Mr. Marshall is in the armed services and \vas automatically eliminated because of the policy not to take men from the armed services if others ,are available. I was well acquainted with the fine qualifications of Mr. L t n n a n and knew him well personally. I am slightly acquainted with Judge Graven. "On the basis of communications and recommendations from Ihose who knew bolh candidates and especially on the basis of geographical location in the district. I recommended Judge Henry Graven."

No change is made in the current values on frozen foods, preserves and jellies, dry beans, canned soups and baby food, but the revised chart gives point-free ratings lo canned fresh-shelled beans, dry prunes, raisins, currants and mixed dried fruits. Victory gardeners and home canners received "full credit" from OPA Administrator Chester Bowles for the sharp downward .adjustment of vegetable point-values, which the changes make the lowest since the start of rationing. ''They did a magnificent job last year," Bowles said in expressing a hope that more victory gardens will be grown in 1944. "It will be possible to keep ration points at. or even near, present levels only if the food output this year is ereat- er than ever before." The vegetable revision slashes the ration cost of a number "2. can of peas from 10 to 3 points.

"It is absolutely true thai Bulgaria i= asking for armistice erms," this informant said. He icknowledged that the Bulgarian 'eelers still were in the prelimi- lary stage. Military observers said Ger- nany would be hard put to force Bulgaria lo remain in the war, nasmuch as the Bulgars have some lo divisions in the field itgainst no more than one or two divisions which Hitler could spare roni his Jugoslav campaign for police measures. The uncertain factor in the situation appeared to be the attitude of the Bulgarian army toward a separate peace. Meanwhile, a United Press dispatch from Ankara quoted Budapest reports that Rumania has sent a special peace envoy to Stockholm to meet with Mme. Alexandra Kollonlai, soviet ambassador to Sweden. The dispatch said Premier Nicholas Kallay of Hungary was questioned at a government party meeting in Budapest Wednesday regarding the departure of a high R u m a n i a n o f f i c i a l for Stockholm by special plane. It was Mme. Kollontai who conducted the preliminary peace talks with former Premier Juho K. Paasikivi of Finland last month and laid down the 6 conditions under which the Soviets would be willing to grant Finland an armistice- s from 10 to 5 and asparagus from lo to 10. Fresh lima beans are hiked to 25 points for a number 2 can (now 20 points) while tomato catsup goes from 18 to 23. -Explaining-the sharp boost o canned fruit point-values, OPA says movement of these items into consumption has been nearly I f per cent faster than scheduled resulting partially from earlict reductions of vegetable values which released more points foi b u y i n g fruit.

Yankee Bombers Again Assault Rome Railways Allied Headquarters, Naples, U.R) -- A m e r i c a n heavy bombers 'at- ct;ed Rome for the third lime of 1C war Friday, dropping tons of xplosives on the Littorio and Ti- urlina railroad yards and Hie ily's main airdrome 35 miles lo ne norlh.

"Early reports indicate that the ailway yards were well covered and that the airdrome bombing vas good,'* a special announcement said. Earlier reports did not reveal whether Ahe .bombardment was icavier than those of last July nnd August when Rome was at- lacked previously by American lieavy bombers, btit it was observed thai Maj. Gen. Nathan F. Twining's' 15th air force now has more bombers than ever before. Flying fortresses handled the j Rome assignment while the liber- | cilors flew on north to smash at the Viterbu, airport. The Tibuvtina rail yards lie about. 2 miles southeast of the main rail s t a t i o n in Rome, Station di Termini, across city from V a t i c a n City. The Littorio yards, one of targets of the first raid on Rome ast J u l y 19. arc in the northern environs of Rome. They carry the hulk of freight t r a f f i c from industrial northern Italy. Since the Anziu beachhead campaign began, the Rome area has been attacked by medium bombers several times, particularly its air fields and suburbs. American A3C dive bombers hit the Rome yards on Feb. 15. Rome is regarded as a purely military target because it is feeding German troops and supplies into the Anzio front. The allies long have known that the Germans were using the r a i l w a y yards extensively. German air forces probably h a v e used the Vilcrbo field for attacks on I h e allies in the An/io beachhead. ncse held slepping-stone Tuesday.

S. 8th air force anuunccd that British- based American fighters nego- liatco the 1.000-mile round trip flight to Berlin on an "offensive sweep." The brief anouncemcnt indicated the raiders had machine- gunned nazi targets in the capital, inasmuch as the length of the flight would make it difficult, if not impossible, for the fighters to carrv anv appreciable bomb load. It wa? the first time Berliners have watched the insignia of the light raid on the ci!y. On Jan. 30. 1343. a force of speedy RAF mosquito bombers hit Berlin twice in : broad daylight, interrupting a nazi party anniversary speech by Propaganda Minister Paul Joseph Goebbels. (This disclosure may presage a sweep by American heavy bombers over the German capital, until recently considered too distant from British bases for daylight bombing because fighter planes accompanying the A m e r i c a n air- force liad been restricted to coverage of flights at targets less dist a n t from England.

He disclosed that the United States and Great Britain already were usins some of the Kalian tonnage that was surrendered with the capitulation of Italy, and that efforts now are being made to determine how many of these ships or their equivalent can be (urncd over to the Russian navy. He said this was the question he bad told previous press conferences that Marshal Stalin had brought up through his Washington ambassador. He described it as a rather old question and related to what ships or their equivalent would go to Russia. He emphasized that so long as tlie war lasts the allies will USD everything afloat against the enemy but t h a t a f t e r the war that was something else. Asked whether the ships would be manned by Italians, Mr. Roosevelt replied some may and some may not.
