"As a mailer of fact," he said, "il is an. information program." He admitted thai Britain, Franco, var- v\ious South 1 American countries and >'the Soviet Union now buy and broadcast American news and give it their own interpretation.

German POW ,, to Be Sent Home By June Washington, Jan. 20 — (UP) — President Truman announced today that all German war prisoners will be sent home from this country by the end of June. This new date represented an extension of 00 clays in the time scheduled for the return of prison- crs , The president said that Ihe rc- s turn ol contract prisoners of war would not begin prior to April 1. This action, his announcement explained, was designed to meet a temporary labor nroblein in the production of sugar beets, cotton and pulpwood. Beginning April 1, these prisoners will be returned in equal monthly installments so that all ot them will be out of this country by the end of June. Mr. Truman said he contemplal- .. ed no further extension of the pe- •* riod within which the prisoners would be returned. Two Charged Armstrong, \yho declined comment on the CIO decision to remain on strike, said: "Our job is to gel Ihe packing industry back into production. We need meat for the armed forces and for all our people. If we have the coopcralion of labor and management we can have meal in the. markets in a mater of days." Immediately the: o was no defi- nite'Information as lo the number of AFL workers returning lo work. However, officials of the union said some members might "rebel" against back-to-work orders without assurances of demanded wage liikcs. They did not anticipate any friction with CIO pickets, as the AFL union has no membership in plants where the CIO is the bargaining agent, and the CIO has none where the AFL has the collective bargain ing contract. An early decision is expected from the meal panel, which continued ils hearings loday on the wage issue. The-CIO had asked a wage hike of 25 cents an hour, 11 1-2 cents now, wi'h Ihe additional 1-2 cents to be negotialcd later. The AFL union demanded a pa> joost of 20 cents an hour or a $3G ninimum for 40-hour week. A 0 cents an hour increase was the lighest offer made by any majoi nicker.
