MORNING AVALANCHE Dial 4343 For Th« Avolcmgrit.JournQl Of fleet Is Held Committee \ ; WASHINGTON, March 23 <u.» —Seti. . Kenneth McKellar, D., Terin., declaring that the government "is making mollycoddles out . ot- our, people," today proposed to replac«; the National Youth ad- aunistristion and the Civilian Conservation corps with a $25,- 000,000 war training program. fc The program would train arti- jsns, mechanics and machinists Jor the armed services and would be-under the administrator of Vocational Education in the Bureau pf Educstion. ., McKeller offered his proposal at a hearing before the Senate labor committee on his bill to abolish fhe NYA and CCC at the end of this year, i- Praised By FDR * He pointed out that the two agencies received appropriations totalling $397,767,000 last year. ) McKellar conferred Saturday jvith President Roosevelt in connection with his bill, which would carry out a recommendation of the joint committee on non-essen- . ^al expenditures, headed by Sen. Harry F. Byrd, D., Va. McKellar is a member of the committee. -White House Secretary Stephen T. Early said Saturday that the president felt the NYA and CCC .were making valuable contributions to the war effort and should Jbe continued. , McKellar's proposal for the new -training program was offered as Jin amendment to his bill and Jjvould limit enrollment to young •men of 18 to 21. It provides that tthey be trained for the armed services exclusively, and not for private industry. Equipment now used in NYA vocational training V-ould be transferred to the Bu- jreau of Education. •Nelson's Warning ;• (Continued From Pase One) )ment, maintain their membership.) The conference also denounced =what it called the "current campaign against labor" and asked for jan investigation of what it termed •a "conspiracy" originating in Tex£s. and Oklahoma "in which a jmmber of people and organizations have been led into the use of their names for pro-Axis expres- ^ipns and activities." '--While it proceeded, House lead• ,ers touched off a series of demands for action on labor legislation by announcing they had made tentative plans for a twe weeks recess Beginning next Monday. |- Hep. Cox (D-Ga.) promptly pro- Rested that "the public is not going (to, let -us go home until we do something about the labor situation," and Hep. Mahon CD-Tex) de- £l.ared it would be "an outrage" if *he House recessed without approving legislation "effectively -suspending the 40-hour- week, speeding up production and eliminating industrial graft and excess profits." «• . Lot Of Misinformation ! To these protests, Rep. McCor- inack of Massachusetts, the majority leader, replied that "an awful lot of misinformation" had fieen circulated. He commented (that some seemed to believe a laborer should make the same sacrifices as a soldier receiving $21 a jmonth and declared: ••'"I think it is one of the most erroneous things to compare a man who is working with a man IB:the Army at S21 a month. The man in civilian life has the greater responsibility." ..-'In the Senate, there was talk -from Sen. Herring (D-Iowa) and others of attempting to force from the labor committee to floor consideration a bill passed by the House last year outlawing strikes in arms industries. Sen. Bilbo CD- Miss) introduced a bill to require registration of all persons 18 years of age or older for war work. He would let the president order them to .work and fix their rate of pay ' Would Curb Racketeers ' -He said this would curb "labor racketeers" and "sound the death knell for a luxury-softened era of playboys and glamor girls." J. In addition to Bilbo's bill, several other labor measures were introduced in Congress during the Say. j/Rep. Colmer (D-Miss) proposed what he described as "work or tight legislation, a measure providing penalties- for strikes or slow-downs in .war industries, */The bill would direct local draft boards to. reclassify strikers who previously have been given deferment because of their employment in vital defense industries. i . Prison Term* Provided ? It would also provide for pri=on terms up to two years and fines VP to $o,000 for persons convicted of 'conspiring for the purpose of eithor bringing about a cessation of the production of war materials or a slowing down of production." : Other provisions would permit a 48-hour work week without payment of overtime wages, and limit profits of to 6 per - Hep. Hoffman (R-Mich) introduced a resolution asking an investigation of,a charge by L. Metcalfe Walling, wage-hour .division admiaistrator, that the Nazi propaganda machine was behind the movement to set aside wage-hour standards. , Trinidad has a serious shortage ol labor to pick the ripe coco?, fruit and this may decrease the 1942 crop. : I WANT TO BUY Old New»pap»ri, Magazines.

M^_ illc Rome radio broadcast a Shanghai report tonight saying a strong Japanese fleet had been sighted in the Bay of Bengal. This round-about account said a landing in Bengal can be expected "at any moment." This report said the Japanese iniended to land at a point where they could reach th« Chinese border via Assam. It v/as'added that Calcutta would be included in these operations. There was no word from Tokyo on any such operation and it was considered unlikely the Japanese war lords would depart so far from their previous practice and tell the world ot their plans before putting them into operation. In this connection it was recalled last week that the Vichy radio, lending a hand to the Axis propo- ganda "war of nerves." put out a report that a Japanese invasion fleet was off Australia. There has been no official word that anybody has seen this fleet.

(IP) — Francis B.

He's been doing it annually for over a decade now, ever since thf; iate Garza county ranrh- • man, J. I, V/ilborn, died after a lifetime of following the old : Indian custom of "charting" seasonal rains by the March 22 wind direction method , Yesterday morning he donned his "ceremonial robes," (consisting.of plenty of warm clothes) repaired to the "open spaces" north of his residence 3109 Twentieth street, built a smoke fire, tied a silk thread to a tall stake, lit a cigar and be-. . gan his vigil just.before sunrise At the moment of sunrise, 7:01 central war lime, and for 30 minutes thereafter, the wind was out of the southwest, Judge Mullican reports, "All 1 needed for a perfect vigil," he said, "was a iew more Indians, a wind from the north, and a skillet full ; of bacon and eggs!" ' Judge Mullican does not guarantee the "charting" method, but he points to the fact that Mr. Wilborn's calculations, as well as his own, usually run true to form especially in the matter of wet years which usually bring bumper cotton and feed crops to this area. ' In 1941, 1937, 1930 and 1924, March -.22 sunrise wind direction was out of the north, presaging unusually heavy rainfall. Oii each of those years the South Plains area, .was blessed with much moisture and, therefore, big crops. Judge Mullican said this morning that although he isn't particularly happy over yester-> clay's sunrise wind direction being from the southwest, "they can't take away the fact- that in 1941, Lubbock county, with 85,104 bales of cotton, is leading the whole state bv. a wide margin -and that Jas't year—even under government' curtailment—was the . third best in the county's history.""' Maybe j'esterday's wind- prediction won't hold true this, year. Judge Mullican .continued, pointing to the fact' that this country has the best "underground . season" it' has ever had at this time- of" the year, as- far as any living person can remenvDer. "If folks will patch up their terraces and contours. ; and consult their county .agents for advice," he said, "maybe we can make the Indians look bad after all!"
