MECKLIH . UnUed Press Staff Correspondent .; : .WASHINGTON, March 20. — ' The United States, like Great Britain probably will have to enact legislation eventually for compulsory allocation of its manpower, labor authorities said today. : - The question was raised by the presidential order for registration Jlnder the selective service act on April 27 of '13,000,000 men be- txveen 45 and 64 years of age, inclusive. These men are too old for military service but an occupational survey of them will uncover "hundreds of thousands of hidden skills needed in war industries," the labor spokesman said. High Officials To RegUier Many of the men who will register next month will be the fathers, even the grandfathers, of men whose order numbers were determined in the last three lotteries. President Roosevelt, who was 60 on his last birthday, is within the age group but will not register because he is commander-in-chief of the armed forces. High government officials who will register in- rdude Vice President Henry A -Wallace, Secretary of the Treas- inY H.'rreYttr' __ i.ury -Henry Morgenthau, jr., Sec Mia-cont Pet — fretary of Agriculture Claude R Wickard, Attorney General Fran cis Biddle, Postmaster Genera ..Frank C.

That Mr. Roosevelt may plan to "catch" these men as they turn ;20 in registrations to be helc .every January while the war lasts - The youngest men now eligible ; f or the draft,are those who were "20 on or before last Dec. 31.

No Substantial Damage New enemy air raids on the Solomon islands resulted in no sub- itantial damage and no casualties Allied aircraft , continued in ;trong counter-action, of which official details were scarce. The day brought a new increase in the Allied = forces, with the arrival of detachments of American airmen from fallen Java and Brit- sh and Australian troops from Singapore, and was one o£ still rising confidence in Allied ability to hold on. Prime Minister John Curtin, announcing that Gen. MacArthur would reach the Australian capital of Canberra on Tuesday to confer with the war council, expressed full confidence in the general's aggressive promise that the Phil- ppines -would yet be reclaimed. Will Regain Losses "What he says is the truth," declared the prime minister. "We will hold what we have and will take back what we lost. _ "Gen. MacArthur's gallant "men n the Philippines will find Aus- :ralia and her Allies advancing towards them." In the first rffficial inspection of a United States Army camp, the Australian army minister, Francis Forde and Maj. Gen. Stantke ad- utant-general of the Australian army, reviewed the troops while the bands played the. "Star Sangl- ed Banner." In a speech later to Australians, torde said this country, encouraged by arrival of the Americans, was determined that future tactics against the Japanese would be aggressive and offensive and that Australians would fight shoulder- o-shoulder with the Americans. He said the Americans appeared :o be in fighting trim and their ixemplary behavior had made a me impression. Australia needs more bombers anti-aircraft guns and generai equipment, Forde said, and prac- ically everything will come from the United States.. Conferences started among Aus- ralian and American Armv officers which were expected to result n the selection of an Allied war Council to hold fundamental con- rol or all military operations — a •ouncil expected to include MacArthur and other ranking Amerian officers ^long with the chiefs >£ the Australian for.ces.

Coupled with these ominous signs from the Balkans were accounts of brutal, mass machine- gun executions of 4,000 Serb-patriots, of new arrests among restive Belgians and Frenchmen and harsher restrictions on Jews. Y u g o slav government sources in London, quoting from eyewitnesses, told how the Serb men and boys were mowed down late last November after Hitler personally had invoked a 100-for.l reprisal against Yugoslavs unconverted to the fuehrer's "new order." Houses Were Searched The belated eyewitness accounts said the roundup o£ the Serbs started in Kragjevas a month after Hitler issued his personal order. "Germans started to search all houses for the men." the Yugoslavs related. "The men were led out of town. Nobody knew the reason for the measure. "The Germ ans rounded up about 6,000 .men and boys, from 15 to about 50. Although bewildered, all were not unduly perturbed and some even sang throughout the night. Divided Into Group* "On.Tuesday, Nov. 21, the German soldiers proceeded to divide the thousands into batches of 40. Armed guards then led these groups into fields and bushes and began to work their machineguns on them. "About 100 schoolboys with school books stili in their hands were with them. The number executed was more than 4,000. According to an official statement of the mayor of Kragujevic, about 60 per cent, of the whole male population was killed." Across the continent, German authorities in Brussels announced yesterday that 50 Belgians had been arrested as Communists and ordered deported to eastern Europe in reprisal for recent "terrorist" attacks in Belgium. Worken Axe Needed The arrest of 13 persons, including a woman, was announced n Nazi-occupied Paris. They were accused of operating a Communist sropaganda center known as 'The Women's Worldwide Committee Against War and Fascism." To help relieve a growing labor shortage in Germany, the Aneia news agency reported in London :hat the Nazis had ordered that official subsidies given some 75,000 to 100,000 Dutchmen would be cut off unless they agreed to migrate to the Reich. Jews were the target of new -estrictions in the Axis countries of Hungary, Bulgaria and Slovakia. Martinique Was Almost Seized WASHINGTON, March 20. W>)— An incident'involving a German submarine nearly precipitated United States' seizure of the French island of Martinique recently, and authoritative source disclosed today. . The submarine entered the havbor of Fort de France on Feb. 21 and sent ashore a wounded member of its crew. Word of the U-boat's arrival quickly reached Washington and it was promptly established that the submarine took on no supplies and did not attempt to open communication with anyone on the island. Nevertheless, in view of the critical situation in the Caribbean, a communication immediately was sent to the French government through Ambassador WJliam D. Leahy at Vichy warning that government that the United States could not permit the use 'of French western hemisphere ports by Axis warships or planes for any purpose. Vichy Complies It was made clear that unless the United States received categorical assurances that the French government would riot again allow any Axis submarine or warplane to visit any French western hemisphere possessions the United States would find itself compelled to take such action as would protect its own interests. What such action would be was not stated, but the warning was emphatic enough to carry the implication that if it became necessary for the United States to take over the protection of Martinique itself it would not hesitate to do so. Several diplomatic exchanges followed this warning, the upshot of which was that the Vichy government gave the categorical assurances that, no Axis vessels or planes henceforth would be permitted to enter French ports or territorial waters in the western hemisphere under any pretext Army Bombers Boost Total WASHINGTON, March 20. I — The addition of a Japanese cruiser to the mounting total of enemy ships sunk or damaged by American Army bombers in the aerial hit-run battle to forestall an invasion of Australia was reported today by the War department. . Striking at a distance of possibly 800 miles from their bases two bombers made a direct hit or a large cruiser in the harbor oi Rabaul, on the island of New Britain. Belatedly reported from Gen Douglas MacArthur's Australian headquarters, the , attack took place Wednesday, a communique said. It followed a foray made the day before.by a single long range bomber on a Japanese-held airport at Koepang, on the island of Timor, sone 1,500 miles to the west. Reported By Curlin (The Rabaul raid appeared to have been reported yesterday by Prime Minister John Curtin of Australia who announced at Melbourne" that "our aircraft" bombed a cruiser, scoring a direct hit on the stern which sent smoke belching from the vessel. Near misses were observed, he said, on two other large craft.) The War department's announcement was coupled with disclosure that 14 Army officers and an enlisted man accompanied Gen. Douglas MacArthur on his spectacular transfer from the Philippines to Australia. The party also included Mrs. MacArthur and their youthful son Arthur.

Reciassification Of Aii Aliens Ordered WASHINGTON, March 20 (.f>— A reclassification of all aliens, including enemy aliens, has been ordered by the selective sen-ice system, informed persons said today. Under existing practice, aliens who have not stated their intention to become citizens "of the United States have been put in the 4>C classification, while :hose aliens who have declared .intention to become citizens have been given the same classifications as citizens. The new order, however, would require reexamination of 'all the former group of aliens. If they are found eligible for class 1-A they will be inducted into the armed forces. DR. J. B.
