n ii u Iceland Sorry if U. S. Will Need Postwar Bases By Associated Press. WASHINGTON. August 26. Icelandic Foreign Minister Vilh-jalmur Thor said today his countrymen "rg-ret" any implication mat it win De necessary lor tne United States to acquire peacetime military bases in Iceland; "by lease or outright ownership." - This is esoeciallv so. he added. 1.' the implications are attributed to leading politicians. Thor declined at a news con-;- ference I to identify the "politicians.": Senator McKellar (Dem.), Tennessee, suggested recently that the United States should secure permanently the wartime bases he is now using in the Atlantic and the Pacific - I : - PRESIDENT IN IT. S. ' The Foreign Minister held the conference in conjunction with the -visiting President of Iceland, Sveinn Bjornsson. Declaring that the agreement whereby! United'States forces "undertook the military protection of our country aurtng tnis war have proved mutually Deneficial, Thor saw the United States has pledged itself to withdraw its forces at the end of the war. " "I have never had any doubt on this points We know that the agreement will be carried out to the letter," he declared. ESTEEM AT PEAK, President Bjornnson stressed the co-operation between the two countries and said, "We Icelanders regard Americans more highly now than at any time before." Icelanders appreciated the type f American soldier which had been sent to them, and while some Icelanders, he said, may not have been pleased with the friendships between Icelaffaic"girls and American soldiers, mutual tact and cc- operation overcame differences of opinion. ; Probably . more than 100 Icelandic girls have married American soldiers, it was revealed. Asserts Labor Assure Troops' Jobs By Associated Press. LONDON, August 26. Sherman Dalrymple, president of the United Rubber-Workers, CIO, declared today ihafe organized labor in America will see to it that returning troops get their old jobs "back after the war. He said if necessary, the United States could go on a six-hour work day. He was optimistic, however, over prospects for postwar employment. He said the demand for civilian goods will be so great that there will be no necessity for unemployment. ; In an interview, Dalrymple tressed particularly that .there is a place awaiting those who return from the armed services and "it is not on relief. It is written Into-law that soldiers are to go back to the employment they left, with the time they spent m the Army counting in their status." . DalrymDle said he saw no dan ger! to the economic structure of 'the United States in a return to the prewar size of pay en velopes "as long as the cost of living comes down.". He pointed out the larger wartime salaries 'resulted generally ; from a longer work week rather! than increased wages. He asserted that if the cost of living remained high, organized labor would be forced to seek higher wages with shorter hours. Dah-mple predicted a return to the six-hour day for the rubber industry. He also said there was i place in the postwar period for bcth synthetic and natural rubber and predicted the former eventu-allywould be developed to a point where it would be more uniform than the latter and help stabilize the price. - Falls Lead in 97,500 '43 Accidental Deaths By Associated Press.

NEW YORK, August 26. The New York Herald Tribune, in a story fjom-' its Washington' bureau,' says two Chicago attorneys have requested the Supreme Court to rule on the constitutionality of the federal balloteven in the 28 states whose Governors have decided it to be invalid.. It says the attorneys. Urban A. Lavery and Francis Heisler. de clared in a petition that the circumstances call for quick action on tne part or tne supreme tourt in order to affect the November elections. Described as a last-minute effort to make the simplified federal ballot available to all service men and women who may not receive their state ballots in time to use them, the petition specifically names Gov. Dwight H. Green of -Illinois" as' respondent, the story continues. A favorable decision, however, would eventually apply to all states and throw open use of the ; federal ballot in those states who have held out for" their own forms, ' it says. i Court officials believe that the I court, which convenes October 2, will act on the- petition early- m that month, and there is a possibility that the Justices may con sider the case during September, and reach a decision at their first , meeting, according to the Herald-Tribune. ! O'Mahoney Scoffs at GOP Senate Control By Associated Press. ' - WASHINGTON, August 26. ; Republican claims that they have ' a "fighting chance" to win control ' of the Senate in November were , countered today by Senator O Ma- ; honey (Dem.), Wyoming, who contended in a formal statement : that the 11-year-old Senate Demo- ; cratic majority will be "easily i maintained" in the next Congress. , If there is any doubt about this, j said O'Mahoney, chairman of Democratic Senatorial Campaign . Committee, it would be dispelled by an analysis of the August 23 Gallup poll. This survey, he sard, ! showed that of the 35 senatorial contests this year 19 are In states which the poll gives to President! Roosevelt and 16 in states it puts I in the column of Gov Thomas I E. Dewey. He figured that 35 Democrats and 24 Republicans will not be up fo re-election this fall, ' with the Democrats needing to win only 14 of the contests to keep a majority 49 and the Republicans 25 to achieve an overturn. The Wyoming Senator declared further that 15 of the 25 elections will be in states which, the poll assigns to Roosevelt and in which incumbent Senators whose terms . expire are Democrats. . ! "This fact alone makes it a certainty that the next Senate will continue to be Democratic," he said. . - The present political lineup of the Senate is: Democrats 58, Republicans 37, Progressive 1.
