Veto of the bill would mean a sharp rebuff for Gen. Omar N Bradley, Veterans Administrator and its sponsor. To approve would be to wipe out veterans preference in some thousands of well-paid government jobs. Bradley believes the measure is essential to his proposed new deal in veterans medicine. Civil Service, which is urging a veto, said it is not needed at all, and is dangerous besides. Some quarters believed that Mr. Truman might emerge with a compromise. They foresaw two possible alternatives. One would be for thc nresident to veto the bill but at the same time to put many of its provisions into eifect througn executive order. This could allow Bradley greater lattitude in building up his medical staff than he now enjoys. The other would ue tor tne oresi- dent to sign the bill but at the same time to instruct Bradley to comply as much as possible with existing Civil Service regulations.

When, in the Sunday schools of our earlier years, we read and studied Ihe slory of the oppression and bondage of the Israelites in l^gypt, who of us would have believed thai we would see in our own modern world, in a professedly Christian nation, an oppression and persecution of the Jews more terrible than "the Pharaoh that knew , not Joseph" ever perpetrated. The Jews have suffered greatly in history; the Egyptians made they maKe bricks without straw; they have been compelled to livn in ghettos in Europe; they suffered pogroms in Czarist Russia; even in Britain, "mother of democracies", their civil rights were won only after a long struggle. But it remained for Nazi Germany, in our twentieth century, lo perpetuate atrocilies and slaughter against Uie Jews on a scale, and wilh a cleplh of ficnclishncss, never previously approached. The sad fad is that anti-Semitism has not been confined to Germany, or lo European countries; here among ourselves, even in the name of Christ, unscrupulous men arc preaching haired, even violence, against Jews and misguided people are listening. There ;ire bad Jews and good Jews, just as there are bad people and good people, of every race, and of every proiessed religion. But this vicious propagandism is against good and bad alike, blind, intolerant, and against every jusl law of God anci man. If Ihc uludy of Ihe oppression of Jews in ancient Egypl can help us to seo how dastardly was thc action of thc Egyptian oppressors, and leads up lo abhor all such treatment of minorities, and lo put the evil propagandism of racial and religious prejudice, and on the side of attaining justice and fair treatment for all mcn, these lessons from the Bible, the great textbook of love and brotherhood, will not bc in vain. The glorious story of Joseph, his triumphant conquest of famine, and his wise and high-minded exercise of power, soon changed lo tragedy for his people as a new dynasty arose. Great and wise men make mistakes; and perhaps. Ihe great mistake of Joseph was in bringing his people clown to Egypt, and sellling them happily, under cordilions in which their very prosperity brought upon them Ihe al- tacks of the envious, when Joseph was r.o longer in power to protect them. From Ihcir honorable place anci preferment they had descended under thc persecutions of a hostile Pharaoh to a condition of enslavement, in ignominy and deep suffering. Bul a deliverer was at hand. The story of Moses has caught the imagination of every child, but it :s entrancing for grownups as well. With a fury 'and devilishness, lhat in our lime we could call "Ilitleristic," on a par wilh Miller's instruction to his officers that they should kill al.1 Poles, men, women, and children, Pharaoh gave his command lo Ihc Hebrew midwiyes that they should kill, or cast inlo thc river, all newly born male babes. A loving Hc- bicw mother preferred to leave her babe to some small chance of survival, and senl him adrift in a lilllc ark made of bulrushes and pitch. Who doesn't know the slory of . his rescue by thc princess? Bul Uie slory begun in this romantic rescue soon lurns te sterner things as Ihe drama unfolds, and a great deliverer and all our labor and influence against I law-giver appears.

The report, sent lo Geneva by M. M. Peslnlozzic, Red Cross agcnl in Japan who has been an occasional visilor at. Ihc Irials, staled that "good conditions" prevailed under Yuri's command. Yoichi Saito. former Japanese army captain and commandant of Prisoner of War Camp Fukuoka, testified lhal Yuri's camp was regarded as "exemplary." He said lhat because conditions were so good Iherc, all olhor camps in Japan were told to model themselves after Yuri's camp. Saito, also held a,s a siisnccted war criminal, said under cross- examination, that Japanese army rules gave camp commanders authority to withhold food and.v.

D. Hushing of the LI. S. Employment service predicted today. Duriiu; December employment was approximately IMO.OOO, only 22,000 below the 3U2.000 reported in July, Hushing said. Unrnplnyineiil in Docemncr rose to an estimated '1:1,000 against 10,000 in July, flushing's report said. During this time, however, 27,000 non-tann war veterans and 20,000 workers who left the slate to take war jobs returned to their homo:;. Hushing declared that in 1IMG employment in construction .industries should double or probably treble the December cmnloyincjtil figure of 20,300 in that classification and that at least 5,000 new jobs should be created in lumber production, including funilurc manufacturing. Prospects in oilier employment classifications were summarized us follows: Mining — employment is expected to remain near or slightly below the December 7,300 total. Transportation, communication and public utilities — current employment is estimated at 0,000 above the 1U-10 figure and is about the same as the 31,000 employed a.s of July, IIH.j. Since most of the increase has been in railro-'.tl employment, a decline may be expected unless demands on the rails continue. Trade and service — December':.; figuie of IfiU.OOO is I!.000 more than ! in July, bill this increase is largely seasonal. IfeHirn of. many commodities to the market plus slimu- lation of overall employment increases in other industries should increase trade and service establishments. 1 employment .

Llnbergh, delivered on the •land Hi "t flight * ° f thc Wrlgllt brolhcrs ' It should be noted (hat Mr. Lind- bcrgh had some qualms, too. The burden of his message was that there musl be a world organi/.a- Jcm (mi lute-resting sliitcment in "Iself frorn one of the most vocnl 01 prewar Isolationsls) equipped with Immediate, overwhelming strength to cope with trouble "In this age of split seconds and splitting iiloins." Mr. Lindbergh confessed a dismay, shared by most of us, that our moral force has not kepi pace with our scientific advancement. Our minds are harassed," he said, "by the damage that has already been done; by the realization that Western man hns not .justified his trust; that he has inis- •Vscd his inheritance from thc early pioneers." Yet he ndvocatcd a world organization "led by Western peoples, who developed modern science with its aviation and its atomic bomb." It is difficult to know how much importance to attach to this specification of "Western peoples" rather than "Western nations." Perhaps Mr, Lindbergh is less concerned with geographical boundaries than with geographical location and racial origin. At least .,we recall a magazine article he •• -Wrote some years back which jjavo that impression. The article appeared shortly before or after the beginning of thc war in Europe. In it the author made the point, In effect, that it was suicidal for the Western nations (or maybe it was peoples) to be at each others' throats when they should be uniting for the great corning showdown battle with thc dark-skinned races of the East. There is no doubting the West's ','fading role in history for some Vrtnc to come, in and out of world organization. But neither can it be denied that the advanced Western peoples have been responsible for most of the world's major wars since the Crusades. The Western peoples have "developed modern science with its aviation and its atomic bomb," to be sure. But. is that their only claim to undisputed leadership? If so, it isn't enough. The West should not pre-empt world leadership to the extent of Refusing the East at least a promi- 'jienl voice. ' It would be sad indeed if the notion of racial or regional superiority, so recently put down in Germany and Japan (the most Western in material culture of all the Oriental nations), should arise to disturb the avowed equality of a world organization united for peace. Agree on the to End China War By SPENCER MOOSA Chungking. Jan. 5 — (/I 1 ) —Chinese Communists and government leaders tonight reached an agreement on procedures for ending hostilities and restoring communications in strike-splil China, an of- vfeial announcement said, ''individual rcprescnlalives of Ihc iwo factions have been appointed to confer on steps lo carry oul the cease-fire procedures. Gen. George C. Marshall, U. S. envoy, had conferred in swifl succession earlier loday with leaders of both delegations. From Shanghai, LI .Gen. Albert C. Wedcmeycr, commander of U.S. military forces in China, meanwhile announced that American ships would begin moving 20,000 Chinese government troops inlo ^Sunchuria within 10 days. Airborne movement of other forces was scheduled for today, weather permitting. The momentous agreement lo bring al leasl temporary pence to China was reached at a 75-minule conference between senior government and Communist delegates to the forthcoming unity conference here. H was announced in a mutually-approved press release which Minister of Information K. C. Wu said implied that the two factions' appointed representatives Vuuld work with General Marshall .is a committee of three lo stop the shooting. Named were Gen.

HOPE, ARKANSAS, SATURDAY, JANUARY 5, 1945 Jap Cabinet Meeting is Postponed By MORRIE LAND8BERG Tokyo, Jan. 5 —(/I 1 )— Premier Kijuro Shidchara's slorm-losscd cabinet, weathering the first shock of' General Mat-Arthur's political purge, today postponed unlil Sunday a scheduled emergency session lo discuss ways of compliance. The cabinet's chief secretary indicated thnt the government might attempt to rdmain in power by reorganization rather than resigning en mnssc. Tokyo newspapers speculated that the new Allied directives would leave untouched only the premier himself and Foreign Minister Shigeru Yoshida. The Secretary, Daizaburo Tsugita, who may himself be out of a job as the result of the drastic Allied orders lo eliminate all who led Japan into war, said thnt drafting of emergency imperial ordinances to carry out the directives had delayed thc session scheduled today. Shidehara, still confined lo his home by a cold, was hoi expected to atlend tomorrow's meeting, and thc question of ministerial rcs- ignalions was not officially on the schedule, Tsugila reported. Unofficial discussion of thc problem appeared inevitable, however. Discussing the prospective purge with Japan newsmen, Tsugita gave the •impression, they reported, thai Ihc cabinet would try to carry on after removal of several ministers. The Newspaper Yomiuri named Tsugita as a former leader of the imperial rule assistance- association, one of thc 'organizations whose members arc denied, by thc new Allied decrees, any public office. The Tokyo press, hailing thc orders as heralding a new day for Japan, said they would hit such men as Baron Kanlaro Suzuki, who was premier when Japan surrendered, and Prince Higashi-Kuni, Ihc firsl premier under the occupation. Suzuki, president of thc privy council, was president of thc imperial rule wssistancc political association while premier. Membership in that is grounds for removal from office under the new directives. Doth Suzuki and Higashi - Kuni served as members of Ihe supreme war council. GIs Overseas Have Found Entertainment and Modest Profits in Their'Hobbies By HAL BOYLE Manila, Jan 5 — (/I'l — Many American soldiers overseas have found modest profits us well as en- .crlainment in thc pruist of hob- ales .This is particularly true of stamp collectors. Soldiers with a good knowledge of stamp values have been able to enrich their own collections as well as turn a neat penny on occasion Dy judicious purchase of scarce postage issues in foreign lands. One of those who has found travel broadening to the purse is Cpl. Nathan Dcutsch,-Forcsl Hills, N.Y. who in civilian life operales a stamp shop in Rockefeller Center. 'I don't know of anyone out here who hns struck a gold mine, however," said Hie 33-year-old corporal. "Of course, some of thc boys who didn't know quite what they were gelling into arc going to find when they gel home that they loaded up on stuff that wasn't worth what they paid for it." Stamp collccling nevertheless is surprisingly popular among the troops. "We started a stamp club here last August," said Dculsch, "and until redeployment forced us to give it up we had a floating membership of more than a hundred, ranging from privates to colonels." There arc five stamp auclions weekly in Manila, al which more than half thc bidders arc American soldiers. Thc soldier collectors also are welcome in thc city's two stamp clubs and are invited oflen lo Ihe homes of Filipino members. "We could get such invitations every night in the week if we want' cd them," said Dcutsch, adding that he himself always turned them down because "1 can look al slamps all day bul I don't wanl to talk about them all night too."

A search of official records failed to turn up any real clue concerning Waller Wagner, who according to documents found by American intelligence officers, performed thc ceremony. City officials expressed doubt as to the regularity of the marriage and said Ihcy had never heard of a marriage clerk in Berlin by that name . Hcrr Ncuman, supervisor for greater Berlin's hundred-odd marriage clerks, said he knew them .all by name and his guess was that "Goebbcls brought some functionary of the propaganda ministry to the chancellory air raid shelter and Hitler made 'him a marriage clerk on the spol.

'A Republican Viewpoint 7 in Speech by Taft Cincinnati, Jan. 5 —(UP)— The Republican campaign lo win control of Congress in next November's clcclion was squarely launched loday with an assertion by Sen. Robert A. Taft, R., O., that President Truman's legislative program at least in part is communistic. Speaking over a nationwide radio network (NBC) lasl nigltl, Tafl took-.,.iip, the gage .flung down by, President Truman the previous night when he accused Congress of delaying action on his reconver- sion program. Taft's speech was listed in advance by GOP national headquarters as "a republican viewpoint." It amounted to the opening kickoff in thc 194C congressional election campaign. Taft said the president's accusations were directed at Democrats in Congress since the Democrats are in the majority, head all com- millccs and have a majority on all committees. "This is not a fight between the president and Congress," he said, "it is a democratic family fight." He then turned lo Ihe president's charge that Congress has been slow in passing necessary legislation. "II is true," lie said, "lhat many measures recommended by the president have not been passed. Thai is because half Ihe Democratic party and most of the republicans, and I believe a large majority of the people, disagree fundamentally with Mr. Truman's program and his political philosophy." Tafl said- that Mr. Truman in seeking higher unemployment insurance "is trying to fcderalizc the whole outfit and in effect give left wing labor control of employment." Turning to the. full employment bill he said the president "tried to put Congress on record in favor of the Henry Wallace' compensatory spending theory. . . The proposal came directly from thc Soviet constitution, the Communist platform and the CIO." He said Mr. Truman's plan for heallh insurance "is socialized medicine. . . Can anyone be surprised that there is some delay in enacting such a left wing communistic proposal?" "These measures," he said, "represent a CIO political action committee program. . . The president has definitely aligned himself with thai group in the democratic party." The senior Ohio senator also was critical of the president's fact-finding proposals which arc opposed by labor. Taft said Ihc proposed legislation was "hastily drawn and contained no principles of any kind," He said the "democratic administration" has blocked every attempt to enact "comprehensive" labor legi- slalion. He was sharply critical of the president's request for a flock of telegrams and letters in Congress on behalf of his program. "Former presidents, even those who were elected president by Hie people," he said, "have nol found lhal a wise or successful method of accomplishing their purpose." SEE ANYTHING DIFFERENT? Chicago, Jan. 5 — UPj— L. D. Raylor of Newaygo, Mich., didn't wanl his wife lo know he had been prompted from army lieutenant to captain until she saw the twin bars on his shoulders. She was to meet him at a hotel where he had reserved a room for Lt. and Mrs. L. D. Taylor. She arrived and was assigned room 516. He came in soon afterward, registered as Capt. L. D.. Taylor and was put in room 803. It was late the next day before anxious hotel clerks, who had believed Lt. Taylor and Capt. Taylor were different fellows, finally reunited Ihe ranlic couple.

Evidence of Navy Captain is Studied By JOHN CUTTER' Washington, Jan. 5 —(UP)—The Pearl Harbor investigating com- millc slucliod evidence today that a navy captain predicted the time aud type of the impending Japanese atlack the summer before it actually occurred. The officer, Capt. E. M. Zacha r Has, will bc called before thc committee soon after it ends its 10-day recess scheduled to begin today.' Zacharias was the commander of thc U. S.

It was contained in a memorandum he wrole March 17,1942— three months aflcr Ihc Dec. 7, 1941, allack. Son. Homer Ferguson, R., Mich., pointed out lhal although Ihe memorandum was not written until aflcr the allack, it was endorsed by a wilness who confirmed lhat Zacharias made thc predictions earlier. Ferguson introduced the memorandum in an effort to learn more about idenity of Ihe subscribing witness—Curtis . Munson. He pointed out that Zacharias' memorandum referred to Munson as a yisilor in the summer of 1941. It said he had a leltcr of introduction from Adm. Harold R. Stark, chief of naval operations. Stark said he didn't remember Munson or the circumstances of his visit to Hawaii. He said ho would try to find out and report back lo Ihe commilec. Ferguson suggested that Mini- son was sent to Hawaii as a special representative for thc late President Roosevcll. Stark said he didn't know.

Palestine, Tex., Jan. 5 —(/P)—The loll of east Texas tornadoes rose to 21 dead, 137 injured and one missing today as rescue learns lolled through mud and heavy rains in search of additional victims. Twislcrs left trails of wreckage last night in at least four casl Texas counties. Scores were homeless and many communities were without power! One was isolated from outside communication.

Eastward, al Nacogdochcs, four werfe dead and al least US hurl. Police said Ihc loll of injured probably would reach 100 and thai the condition of several was critical. Near Lufkin, south of Nacogdoches, two were killed and 20 injured. The tornado cut a 100-yard swath across 18 miles of Anderson county, passing three miles south and cast of this cily. Slate police aided local authorities and the Palestine unit of the Texas slate guard in relief work. Thc dead and injured were still being brought in at an early hour today. The injured were in Ihrcc local hospilals and two-thirds of them were reported seriously hurt. Homes, fill- ,ing stations and small stores suffered heavily.

Cars were blown from highways in this area and some of their occupants were injured. A'Youngish' U.S. Supreme Court in 1946 By ALEXANDER R. GEORGE (For Jack Stinnett) Washington — A "youngish" Supreme Court of the United Slates moves quietly into another year of helping chart the course of thc nation. Thc average age of members of thc present court is 57 — 14 years younger than the average 71 of the court into which President Roosevelt nine years ago unsuccessfully sought to inject "new and younger blood." , h^rr'' M?.' ,'Roqscvolt asked Congress for authority to name new justices if thc old ones did not retire at thc age of 70 —the court to have a maximum of 15 instead of nine members —six of the justices were over 70. Today only one member of the court, 73-year-old Chief Justice Harliin F. Stone, is over 70. Stone, incidentally, is the only member of thc current court who was on Ihe high bench when Presidenl Rooscvell launched his baltle lo enlarge Ihe court. Under the law, justices who have reached 70 and have served 10 years may resign and continue lo draw full pay of $20,000 a year for Ihe remainder of Ihcir lives. Com- paralivcly few juslices, however, have retired at 70. Oliver Wendell Holmes, whose intellectual vigor in his late eighties was internationally recognized, was the oldest man ever lo sil on the Supreme Court He was going on 91 and had been a justice 29 years when he resigned in 1932 because of failing health. Thc lule Louis D. Brandeis was 82 when he retired from the courl in 1939. Charles Evans Hughes retired in 1941 at the age of 70. Thirteen years earlier, before he became a member of the court, Mr. Hughes defended .the capacities of judges who were 70. In a lecture at Columbia University, he said: "Under present conditions of living and in view of the increased facilities of maintaining health and vigor, the ago of 70 may well be thought too early for compulsory retirement. Such retirement is too oflen Ihe qpmmunily's loss. A compulsory retirement at 75 could more easily bc defended." Friends of Slonc have said thai he would remain on the bench as long as his good health continued. Stone, apparently in excellent health, will have served 21 years on the high court nexl March'2. The bay of thc present courl is 47-year-old Justice William O. Douglas. Appointed at the age of 40, Douglas was thc youngest man to go on the high bench since 181! when 32-year-old Joseph Story was named a justice. Two of Story's associates were also youngsters. William F. Johnson of South Carolina was 33 when ho went on the court in 1904 and Bushrod Washington was 36 when appointed in 1798. Frisco Railroad Is Notified Strike Set for 6 P. M. Sunday Washington, Jan. 5 — (IP)— President Truman acted to avert a slrike on the St. Louis and San Francisco railway (Frisco) today by naming an emergency board lo invcsli- galc Ihe dispute of thc brotherhood of railroad trainmen. Thc slrike was scheduled for 0 p. m. Central Standard Time Sunday, and would affect 7,000 workers. Under the Railway Labor Act appointment of an emergency board stays any walk-out of the workers while the board investigates the merils of Ihe dispute. Mr. Truman said disputes existed between the St. Louis-San Francisco Railway Company and the St. Louis, San Francisco and Texas Company, carriers, and certain of Ihcir employes represented by the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen. He said in the judgment of ;he national mediation board, the disputes "threaten substantially to interrupt interstate commerce within the stales of Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee, Texas, Mississippi, Alabama and Flprdia, lo a degree such as to de- )nvc that portion of thc country of essential transportation services." The board, with three members will investigate and report within 30 days. The president nointed out n his order that the railway labor acl provides lhat from today, and 'for 30 days aflcr the board has made its report to the presidenl" 10 change in the conditions "out of which the said disputes arose" shall bc made by the railroad or ;he employes, unless by agreement. The emergency board membership was not immedialely announced.

MOORE Washington, Jan. 5 —(UP) — Army discharge point .requirements will be lowered more slowly from now on and occupation needs rather than shipping will determine how quickly men are returned from overseas. Lt. Gen. J. Lawton Collins, army information chief, indicated that the army will cut Us discharge poinl tolal again Feb. 1 but that the reductions probably will be smaller. He said nearly 4.000,000 troops have been returned from overseas since V-E day. Meanwhile, the navy announced new point reduclions through March 2 which will make an additional 18,8750 officers and enlisted personnel eligible for discharge. The critical point scores for most enlisted men under the new schedule will be set at 33 on Feb. 15 and 32 on March 2. The critical point score for enlisted men now is set at 34 effective Feb. 2.

St. Louis, Jan. 5 — (/P} — Only White House intervention may avert a threatened strike Sunday night of trainmen of the St. Louis and San Francisco (Frisco) Railway Company, whose headquarters are here, a spokesman for the Na- Jipnal Mediation Board in Washing- 'tori said loday. The slrike is scheduled for 6 p. m., Central Standard Time. Company officials said a walkout would affect 7,000 railroad em- ployes and tie up freight in nine states — Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Texas, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida.

A mediation board normally is appointed within 30 days of a strike call. If Ihe board's report is nol acceptable Ihe dissalisficd party may appeal to Ihe president, and he could name a fact-finding board to s-ubmil a report within 30 days C. O. Carnahan the Brotherhood's chairman for the Frisco lines said at Springfield, Mo., the union was not ready lo divuhrc its intentions concerning its thrc'atened Sunday uighl action. Claude P.

Union objections, he said, concern handling of individual grievances and that wages and hours were not involved. Tom Brewster Speaker at Rotary Club The Hope Rotary Club held its regular weekly meeting -on Friday al 12:30 in Ihe Hotel Barlow dining room. President Herbert Stephens called the attention of all members to the inter-city meeting of Rotary clubs lo be held at. the C.nm Hotel in Texarkana on Tuesday, January 8, at 7 p. m. to attend. The program for the day was in the charge of Tom Brewster, club secretary.

Thereafter returns will drop 'to about 300,000 a month, Collins said demobilization has reached a point where occupation needs rather than shipping is the prime factor. The 553,000 men still overseas could \be brought home'ln three-months','he said, but it would cripple the work of the occupation forces. As a result, surplus shipping will bc used in part in carrying war brides and dependents of soldiers who married overseas. About 600 of these are expected to arrive from Europe Ihis month. The rate will be stepped up rapidly after that. By July 1 the army's planned overseas strength will be 797,000 Collins said, including 335,000 in Europe, 375,000 in the Pacific and 87,000 in other overseas areas.

Collins said regular army enlistments would total about 400,000 as of January 1. He said it was hoped that enlistments will continue high, although they are slowing down somewhat. He said selective service has produced only an average of 37,000 men per mouth since V-J day against estimates of needs of 50,000. point men are now being shipped.
