Servicemen May Accept Nomination Washington, (fP) --The army and navy have agreed formally, President Roosevelt announced Friday, that regular army and navy men may accept nomination for public office, provided such nomination is tendered without activity 011 their part, and t h a t other members of the services may become candi- dates "without the lender of nomination.'* The president told a press-radio coufereuce that the agreement paralleled exlstinj; law and was largely for clarification purposes. lie said it was uot directed at auy one person and that no controversy could be made of it. One provision of the agreement, signed by the secretaries of war and navy, declares no member ot the land or naval forces while on active duty "will use his official authority or influence for the purpose of interfering w i t h an election or affecting the course or outcome thereof." These pel-sons, however, have the right to express their opinions privately arid informally on all political subjects and candidates, es'en though they will,not be allowed to participate in political management or political campaigns. The latter prohibition includes activity at political conventions or on political committees, participation in campaigns, the making of political speeches or publication of political articles. Members of the services other than regular components may become candidates without the tender of a nomination, the agreement said, "and may file such evidence of their candidacy as is required by law." Conditions are attached that such candidacies must not interfere with military duties and that, if elected, such individuals will not act in an official capacity as an office holder while on active duty. One section provides that a member of the services may be discharged honorably to perform the duties of President of the United States or of a public office specified by the selective service act, other than service in congress. Separation from the service is mandatory for anyone who becomes a member of the senate or house. Twice cracked, the Liberty Bell was recast in Philadelphia.
