Wheeler, Democrat, Montana, senator, an opponent of the bill, said in a speech prepared for delivery in New York: "American mothers see their sons taken to camps to be trained in the refinements of mass murder. And when they hear the war • department announce contracts to purchase identification tags and make inquiries for coffins—knowing full well who will wear the tags and whose bodies will fill the coffins—is it any wonder these mothers have stormed the halls of congress?" The war department has stated that the army contemplated no large scale purchases of coffins and described a recent order for identification tags as a "routine replenishment of stocks." "The department does not buy coffins, except in isolated cases where normal undertaking services are unavailable." officials said. "Undertakers provide coffins for military burials in peacetime, with the army supplying only the flag, at was explained. "There have been no inquiries looking to large-scale purchases of coffins," officials said. Congress heard an explanation last month of contracts for identification tags, as a result of an inquiry by Arthur H. Vandenberg, Republican, Michigan, senator. It was said then that the war department, as a result of the army's expansion, had ordered 4,000,000 metal tags of the type strung around the necks of all soldiers. In addition, an order for 4,500000 medical identification tags of linen and paper was placed with JJne government printing office. The war department said the peacetime distribution to units of the army of 1,418,000 men in prospect by June would require two thirds of this supply.

Historic Liner Recalled To Service As Troopship WASHINGTON, Feb. 20—(AP>— Like an old fire horse recalled from pasture, the historic liner George Washington was ordered out of retirement today to serve in the navy's growing transport fleet. • It will be a familiar service to the 34-year-old vessel. Built in- Germany for the North German Lloyd Line, she was seized by the United States government at Hoboken, N. J., upon U. S. entry into the World War, and was converted into a transport. Makes 18 Trips Eighteen times the George Washington went back and forth across the Atlantic before and immediately after the Armistice, ferrying 48,378 passengers to Europe and bringing back 39,228. The same ship took Pres. Woodrow Wilson and members of the peace conference to France, transported the king and queen of the Belgians on their visit to the United States in 1919, and figured in a history-making ship-tp-shore radiotelephone conversation between Newton D. Baker, secretary of war, and Franklin D. Roosevelt, then assistant secretary of the navy. Some years after the war, the George Washington was operated by the government and the United States Lines in the transatlantic passenger service. She was laid up in December, 1931, by which time the competition from modern luxury liners had become severe. Since that date she had swung at anchor off Solomon's Island, in a sheltered spot where the Patuxent river Citizens League Schedules Drive A campaign to increase the membership in the Phoenix Japanese American Citizens League, Inc., will be undertaken March 1, it was announced yesterday by T.

Mail For Abe Still Arrives WASHINGTON, Feb. 20— (AP)—Mail still comes to the capital occasionally for Pres. Abraham Lincoln. On his birthday, February 12, a greeting card arrived from Boston, addressed to him at the Lincoln Memorial and signed "The Gang at Cole's." National Park Service officials said that just before Christmas there was a letter to Lincoln from a woman who said she was a "witer (widow) lady," with six children in a "kneedy condishion" and asked for a check. They took up s collection, sent her $12.50, and referred her case to the federal security agency. empties into Chesapeake bay. Maintenance crews kept her engines in shape for just such a call as the navy announced today. Assumed Without Cost Navy officials told newsmen that the ship had been taken over from the U. S. Maritime Commission without cost. She had already been moved to the navy yard at Norfolk, Va., for partial - conversion into a transport, they said, and would be sent to the Philadelphia navy yard for completion. Only minor work would be necessary, it was declared. Comdr. Roy Dudley, a native of Penacook, N. H., now on duty at the U. S. Naval Academy at Annapolis, was ordered to take command ot the vessel as soon as she is placed in commission. Another former German liner, the America, is in service as an army transport, providing living; quarters for troops on duty at thej new naval and 'air base siteu ftt Newfoundland until barracks fot them can be completed. _ During 1940 the navy added 12 transports to the two it alread# had in service, the Chaumont and:the Henderson.
