.TUESDAY, *'£B«UAflY 2, 1943 Japan and that China is so situated geographically she can do nothing in the war against Germany. Replying to an inquiry, the president said he had heard from Stalin since the Casablanca decisions were communicated to the Russian premier. But lie would not discuss Stalin's reaction calling it a military matter. Hope springs eternal, he rc- - marked when a reporter wondered "Whether he hoped at some future time to conrer with Stalin. Mr. Roosevelt asked reporters not to infer that anything was going wrong just because he was not making public the messages he and Stalin exchanged * * # It was in response to a rc- . luest for his reaction to what a questioner called "knocks" J which Secretary Hull has heen ' taking on the North African situation of French unity or lack of it, that the president said he'thought things were going pretty well there. # * * · The chief executive predicted ihere would he greater co-operation and co-ordination between De Gaulle, the fighting French leader, and Giraud and their staffs as a result of their meeting at Casablanca. De Gaulle, he said has only 15 to 20 thousand fitting men back of him, and the British have provided arms lor them. Tne chief executive stressed that there was almost universal good will now between American forces in North Africa and the French military and naval units which opposed their landing in November. He said many of the French did not want to light but received their orders to do so and obeyed them like good soldiers. ; The French showed extraordinary bravery, Mr. Roosevelt observed, and then when the cease firing order came, there was complete fraternizing with the Amer- .'Jcan forces. The action, he said, · likewise demonstrated the importance of artillery in modern war- FR 17,000 Mile Trip Described . WASHINGTON, U.R--President Roosevelt Tuesday took white house reports on a verbal cook's tour of three continents. . Sun-tanned and looking more like a man who had returned from a seaside vacation than one who had just traveled nearly 17,000 miles by air and train, the president described in detail his visits to Casablanca, Brazil and Trinidad - *. * * ,. For the first 20 minutes of his first press conference since returning to the white bouse, (lie president delivered a virtual monologue on his 22-day journey, the first of iis hind for any president. * * * Some 200 reporters jammed his executive office. It was perhaps the biggest turnout of correspondents since Mr. Koosevelt and Winston Churchill co-starred at a press conference 13 months ago on the occasion of the British prime minister's first wartime visit to Washington. Mr. Roosevelt said his odyssey covered 16,965 miles. . He opened the press conference by saying that the first thing he wanted to do was thank the press and radio for adhering faithfully to the pledge of keeping the commander-in-chief's movements secret. It .was beautifully done he said. i · * ¥ * The president showed no I signs of fatigue. He was in a jolly and bantering mood. Frequently his remarks drew peals of brighter. He wore a gray P m - sW P* suit and a white shirt with a black lie. Between remarks he puffed on a ci-aret in a lonr holder. The president said the only complaint he had about the trip was that he had to set up at 4-30 or 5 a. m. every day. Jap Report of Sea Battle Unconfirmed WASHINGTON, flm_J apai) ese cporls of a big naval battle otf the Solomon Islands last Friday and Saturday were still without official confirmation Tuesday. V rf- If, Naval department · spokesmen either refused to discuss the enemy's claims or Insisted they were without any information. There might be some clarification of the reports lat- *· *. * The Japanese usually have been the first to (list-lose informa- u°V ^! val engagements in the Pacific. Their claims have always been exaggerated and their latest one is no less modest. Accordin- to a Tokio broadcast, Japanese ai? squadrons sank two "allied" battleships and three cruisers and damaged another battleship and cruiser. This engagement according to the enemy, occurred off Rennell island, 180 miles south of Guadalcanal. But, according to a navy communique issued late Monday American bombing planes -- in some cases fighter escorted-were operating on those days from Guadalcanal against enemy bases jn the Solomons. * * * .Jhe fact that the enemy has been the first to announce sea battles does not imply that such a c t i o n invariably occurred. There have been a number of occasions when the enemy has t .. ." naval "MSement or of attacks on American bases when there was no truth in those reports. * * * But it is known that 'heavy American'naval,forces are in the South Pacific.

Work in listed non-essential activities will not only afford no deferment status but is rclalively insecure because of the increasing curtailment of such activities resulting from the needs of war industries. 2 As in all other cases, the worker should advise his local board of any change of address or status. 3. Every worker a f f e c t e d should consult with the U. S. employment service office for employment in a war job or for information as (o training which will fit him for such a job. Workers must not go to overcrowded defense centers unless the service has arranged a definite job. Reconsideration of the status of a registrants known to be in the esignated non-essential jobs or ndustries will be started by draft oards April I.
