' . . ' SEEK PASSAGE OF MAY BILL Hope to Block Two Controversial Ideas Washington, U,PJ--House democratic leaders sought Tuesday to mobilize opposition to 2 controversial proposals threatening lo block approval of the May Limited National Service bill. . As the house went into the second day. of debate on the measure, supporters of - the administration bill were seeking (o prevent adop- ion of amendments to forbid «m- iloymeut discrimination because if race or religion and to exempt drafted workers from closed shop provisions of union contracts. The bill would require men between the aged of 18 and 45 to take essential jobs designated by loca: draft'boards in event they, could not be filled by voluntary recruiting. It would also prohibit workers from quitting essential jobs without draft board approval. Violators would be subject to line and imprisonment. or induction into the armed forces. . Sponsors of both the controver sial amendments were counting 01 republican support. In the demo cratic ranks, the anti-closed sho amendment was backed, by south erners while the anti-discrlmini tion proposal was supported pri marily by northerners. Approvi of either amendment threatened I alienate one of the democrat!

Norton, p., N. J. of the house labor committee announced she would ask committee Tuesday to arrange early, hearings on bills to estabr lish a permanent fair employment practices committee to combat discrimination in hiring. The committee approved such a bill last year, but it failed to reach the floor,,assurance of early action by the labor c o m m i t t e e might strengthen the move to keep an anti-discrimination rider out of the May bill. Rep. Frank E. Hook, D., Mich., announced, however, t h a t he planned to offer an amendment making an employer hi essential i n d u s t r y who .discriminated against workers on the basis of race or religion subject to a max!-' mum jail sentence of 5 years and a fine of $5,000. 'Rep. Walter. G. Andrews, R., N. Y., ranking minority member of the military affairs .committee, told the house Monday that he would offer the anti-closed shop amendment and force a roll call vote if the house .should fail to approve it; · . Chairman Andrew J. .May, D., Ky., of the military committee appealed to the house to exclude "extraneous matters." He said the committee had considered both the disputed proposals . and rejected theih to avoid splitting the house. Some opponents of the bill expected it to be killed and a less drastic measure approved instead. Reps. Jerry Voorhis, D., Cal., and Frank A. Barrett, R., Wyo., .both plan to offer substitute bills which would strengthen war manpower commission controls. . BOTH SIDES HIT BOLOGNA LINE Nazis May Withdraw Troops From Italy R o m e , (U.R)-^Sharp patrol clashes were reported on the northern Italian front Tuesday as both sides probed the line below Bologna. (A German DNB dispatch said the German high command was "considering" the withdrawal of certain ^ nazi contingents from Italy to help plug the gaps on the eastern .front. To replace them, DNB said, German Marshal Albert.. Kesselring has demanded the'mobilization of Italian citizens of 18 to 60 not previously drafted.) One 18-man German patrol virtually was wiped out when am- ushed -at close range on the east ank. The Germans used propa- anda leaflets and loud-speakers n an attempt to persuade Amer- can and British troops to desert r to feign illness so they would e evacuated.

War'Analyst' We won't if we are wise, shrug away the German defiance that they "will fight before Berlin, in Berlin, around Berlin and behind Berlin," e v e n though at t h e same t i m e Dr. Robert Ley, labor leader, admits that "in all p r o b a b i 1 - ity what is left of the German c a p i t a l m a y soon p a s s into Russian hands." N a z i d o m i s cracking, a n d MacK ENZlE' cracking f a s t , but there, are the makings of a bitter last-ditch stand,-- perhaps with Munich as the center of resistance. It's true that red, forces are less than a hundred miles from Berlin, and the western allies are rapidly getting set for major operations, but the general, military situation still affords the jHitlerites opportunities for strong defense. . "* , v One important factor is that the Russians most nullity the German striking-power on their northern and southern flanks as they thrust that long salient through prepared enemy defenses towards Berlin. This may give the nazis a reprieve. However, if we could lift the roof off Hitler's headquarters and listen to one of the current raucous conferences, we probably should find that it had to do largely with the question of unconditional German surrender. That's bound to be, because surrender is the only reasonable course at this stage, despite the undoubted determination of the nazi leaders to try to this threat of-, personal punishment is the main stumbling block to surrender. Hitler and his captains already have sacrificed millions of lives to satisfy nazi dreams of . conquest, and they'll scarcely hesitate now to sacrifice the German people if it will save the hides of the leaders. The point is, of course, that the Hitlerites hope delay may temper their punishment. There h a v e been reports of differences of opinion in the united nations war crimes commission regarding the handling of this admittedly ticklish subject, although the Germans can have got small satisfaction from Acting Secretary of State Crew's blunt announcement Monday that "it is the policy of this government to see that the axis leaders and their henchmen .who have been guilty of war. crimes and atrocities shall be brought to the bar of justice." The nazi leaders apparently feel that their, best gamble is to keep, on fighting, and watch for some loop-hole for escaping the full punishment for their crimes. Anyway, that's the basis on which the allies have to proceed--a finish light. make the army stand and fight and to keep the civilian population in line. If we could get that headquarters roof off, we should find several questions relating to surrender under discussion. And the foremost of these would relate to Announce Jap ShipLosses for 5 Months With Admiral Halsey's Third Fleet, (U.PJ--American naval forces, striking at the lifeline of Japan's stolen empire, have destroyed a total of 7,315 enemy planes and have sunk 2,000,000 tons of merchant and transport vessels and 90 warships in the last five months, a. compilation revealed Monday. The losses have broken Japanese control of the south China sea and forces of the U. S. Pacific fleet now can operate in it "any time we want to," Adm William F. Halsey said.

This was accomplished when McCain's planes blanketed more than 100 airfields on Luzon in advance of Gen. MacArthur's invasion.

In the present conflict, the Medical Corps has rolled up an enviable record. Out of every 100 wounded men in this war, 97 are saved, which is the best record for saving the wounded in all history. There are a number of reasons why this record has been established. The Medical F., Corps has excellent doctors selfless dedicated nurses . . . n e w . drugs . . . but all of these together would be of little use without the 75,000 enlisted "aid men"--who go unarmed into battle'for the one purpose of helping the wounded. And these same men who bear the symbol of the Red Cross, draw no distinction between ally or enemy. Their creed'is ... when a man is injured he needs to be helped. "Service to the Front" will dramatize an authentic incident that took place in France, and bears out the high courage and devotion of all "medics" whose onl^ weapon in battle is one of mercy.
