Early-bird legislators tackled the same issue. Chairman Doughton N. brought the House Ways and Means Committee back to Capital Hill today to tackle the Administration's plans for broader benefits to the jobless.

But the big Government push toward the ways of peace made this news: 1. The Office of War Information wants to go out of business within 90 days. The State Department may take over U. S. publicity abroad.

2. The public will begin to see electric toasters, washers, refrigerators and ranges this Fall, with vacuum cleaners "fairly plentiful" by Christmas. 3.

I am that the Congress will take no action which would place the armed forces in such a position." Taking issue with Congressional advocates of legislation terminating the Selective Service program and declaring the war emergency at an end, the President gave his views in letters to Chairmen Thomas. Utah) and May, of the Senate and House Military Committees. Asserting he could not recommend abandonment of the Selective Service inductions, the President declared: "The situation in the Pacific continues to have many elements of danger, and war-torn and disorganized Europe is facing a difficult Winter season with scarcities of food, fuel and clothing.

"Our occupation forces in those areas must be held at safe levels, determined largely by General MacArthur and General Eisenhower who are on the ground and familiar with the situation. We cannot stop the certain inflow of replacements into the armed forces, without necessitating prolonged service of veteran soldiers." 9l SPEARHEAD OF THIRD FLEET ENTERS JAPAN'S SAGAMI BAY WITHIN 25 MILES OF TOKYO Pfe.
