S.: 450 Women, 175 Children By RELMAN MORIN New York, Feb. 4 —(/PV—Storni- tossed and tired, but radiant with anticipation ,the first group of "British brides" — English women who married American soldiers during the war — reached New York today on the army transport. Argentina, after a nine-day nightmarish voyage across the North Atlantic. A total of 451 women and 175 children were aboard the ship which docked shortly before 7 a. m. The wives ranged in age from Mrs. Ben F. Butler. 16, "to Mrs. * Personal Property Floater insurance gives you more protection for your personal property in your home and outside than you are able to get in any other way.

Mrs. Cooper and her daughter. 17, by a pre vious marriage, and son, 15 months by the present one, was rejoining her husband in Manhattan Beach, Calif. Thirty of the women were expectant mothers. Three literally risked their lives to make the voyage. They were in advanced stages of pregnancy, and when the Argentina encountered the first of several record-breaking storms, they were confined to Ihe ship's hospital under constanl observation by army doctors and nurses. The brides came from England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales and Maila. They were deslined for homes in 44 different slales. New York led Ihe list with 84 women and children Pennsylvania will receive 48, California and Illinois 40 each. Michigan 34, New Jersey 31, Massachusetts 30, and Ohio and Indiana 27 each. Socially they represented in the majority Britain's middle-and upper-middle classes. Most oC them took the army transport only be cause it was the quickest means of rejoining their husbands. ' It was the first "brides' ship" in more than 200 years to bring Brit ish girls to American husbands. Not since the days when sailing ships brought wives to the American colonists on the shores of New England has there been such a voyage. It was a strange, palhclic and even a lerriblc voyage. As Ihe Argentina slipped past the docks in Southampton, the women, lined on the decks, began singing "There'll always be An England." Tears streamed down their checks. At almosl the same instant, another group began Ihe words for "God Bless America." That was Saturday Jan. 26. On Sunday morning, as the ship passed Land's End and headed northward into the open Atlanlic, she began to roll in a long pround- swell. Before noon, four-fifths of I the women were violently seasick. Thy collapsed on the decks, fell •in the passageways, limp and mis- ! crable. I Doctors, nurses. WACs, Red !

It was back in the early Thirties and I was a sailor on a Great Lakes freighter. We lied up at Chi cago, and since it was during the Chicago World's Fair, I headed that way for some quite unsailor-likc fun — listening to swing bands. The Pabst Casino was featuring one of the then name bands— Paul Ash— a fellow who wore his hair like Stokowski .but whoso music came oul in Ihc brush-haircullccl style of a Woody Merman or a Bonny Goodman. Singing wilh this band was a bashful— yes, bashful— little young ster whose looks could not be described honestly as beautiful, nor even as pretty, but who was cute nevertheless. Yes, it was Martha Raye. singing for a slightly loss lavish supper than she can afford now, for Nicky Blair is paying her $5.000 a week at the Carnival, and ner contract recently was extended to 15 weeks. Nicky says Martha is worth .'very cent she gets, for she has occn luring the customers in largo, :'rec-spending numbers into a club so large that it quite conceivably • nighl be used as an airplane or iirigible hangar by clay. Martha now is married to Nick Concios, half of a former bigtime lap dancing team —The Condos Brothers. Nick and Martha havc a ,-oungstcr who takes up a lot of icr non-performing time, and she s seen not quite so frequently in the dawning hours around the nighl spots. Martha, who has energy for half a dozen largo turbines, once was the last to go home from any Big Chicago Hotel Hit by Four Fires Chicago, Fob, 4 — (UPt—An in- vcstigalion was ordered today into four fires which broke out In the historic Congress hotel within 11 hours yesterday, causing one death, injuring .several gnesls and driving 1,000 persons from their rooms in night clothes. Kirc Marshall Anthony J. Mul- Inncy scheduled a meeting with hotel officials and placed 15 guards in (he hotel corridors lo walch for a possible firebug. "Il looks suspicious," Mullaney said. "One or Iwo fires could be a coincidence, bul nol three or four." Motel officials said the firos apparently had been caused by smouldering cigarctes. The dead man, identified a Frank J. Van Hocsen, 31!, Brighton, N. Y., a paint and wallpaper manufacturer, was overcome by smoke. His partially-clad body was found in a bathtub beneath a window on the firth floor from which he apparently had attempted to escape. Mullaney said the fire probably originated in Van Hocsen's room causing loss estimated at $25,000. Twenty-four rooms were bunv-d out and another IB rendered lemp- crarily unuseable by smoke and water. Another fire, occurring in a 12lh oor room about 30 minutes after ic occupant had checked out. put i additional 95 of Ihe hotel's 1.000 ooms out of use. Damage also was stimated at $25,000. Earlier, two small fires, in the ass hat nighl club and sixlh floor, ere extinguished by the hotel aff. The third fire, in which Van Hoe- en lost his life, brought a jam t hysterical guests 'fleeing clown re escapes, stairways and elcva- irs. Several women fainted after caching safety in the lobby. Although the fire was confined to ic fifth and sixth floors, m«n and omen in night clothes crowded 10 stairways and fire escapes as igh as the 12th floor.

There seems to be no record the longest filibusters conducted by a groim, but certainly close to the top, if not therit, is Ihe one aganisl Ihe anil-lynching bill of January and February, 1938, which I have mentioned in a previous article. That one lasted 29 days. The subjects coyered in proposed legislation which have resulted in filibusters demonstrate that the praclice is far from sec lional. In addition to armed neutrality and the anti-lynching bills, filibusters have been waged against such diversified measures as the Versailles Treaty, in 1919; entrance into Ihe World Courl in 1927; against rivers and harbor bills; appropriations; establish mcnt of a bureau of customs; prohibition; and ship purchases. •o- ori the deck-rail, almost fell 'overboard before the horrified eyes of his mother, who struggled, half- Social Situations THE SITUATION: Several college or high school girls are sit ling in a drug slore boolh having a soda.

If southerners continue to prevent consideration of cloture, Tafl .said, "we will let them take the rap for locking all legislation before; the? Senate." Tafl said he would confer with Senate Democratic Leader Alben W. Barkley, Ky., and Sen. Dennis Ch.-ive/, D.. N. M.. FKPC sponsor, on ways in end the deadlock.

A pelilion to limit debate was filed Monday bearing the signatures of 41! Republican and Democratic senators. Some of them, . however. would vole against KKPC. Taft is one of the strongest supporters of a vote on cloture, but opposes FEPC itself. A western Republican, Sen. E.H.

He said one senator had claimed FKPC would get only two votes on a secret ballot. More said supporting FEPC "is polilical cowardice."

Dsstricfr Nurses in Dernier Meeting Tuesday, Prescott 1/1 Jackson, Miss., Feb. (i —I/I')—The difficulty of enforcing Mississippi's slate prohibition laws again occupied legislative and executive pol ji.'.v makers today afler the following developments: 1. Governor Thomas L. Bailey planned a .special message lo Ihe legislature urging cnaelmonl of laws to enable the federal government to aid in state prohibition enforcement. He conferred with federal alcohol lax unit officials, one of whom suggested enactment of laws similar to those of dry Kansas and Oklahoma. Such laws, il was explained, would make the shipping of liquor into Mississippi a federal offense and end Ihe present practice of Ihe U S. internal revenue clcparl- ineiil issuing permits to liquor dealers in the stale. Rep. E. E. Ainokl of Panola eounly, chairman of (he House Temperance Coin miltee aixl an advocate of retaining Ihe stale's black market, tax, was i eporled ready to offer such a bill in the House 2 .A bill to increase the black market lax on liquor to 15 per- eent from HI was offered by Rep. S. II. Kyle of Clarksdale, who said j it would be better "for us to repeal the prohibition law and have .local option than for us to go back to conditions existing before the black market law." A bill to repeal the black market lax failed to obtain the necessary throe-fifths vole in the Senate last week, but will be voted on again Thursday. 3. Three bills were introduced lo provide special investigators to aid law enforcement. One would establish a bureau of alcohol control "to aid and assist in the enforcement of the prohibi- tiuy liquor laws," and authori/.e the bureau lo employ investigator:.;. It was referred to the Senate Tempera nee Com miltee. Another, also introduced in Ihe Senate, would empower Ihc governor to employ up lo 15 special Little Rock, Feb.

Tlie estimated cost of Ihe line is $97,700. o ShimomuraSs Added to War Suspect List By RUSSELL BRINES Tokyo. Feb. (i— (/P)— Gen. Sa- dashi Shimomura, Japan's posl- surrender was minister, today was ordered arrested as an.intornntion- al war crimes suspect .Authoritative Allied headquarters sources asserted thai ho had signed final orders for Ihe execution of three Doolittle fliers in 1942. General Mat-Arthur also instructed the Japanese government to round up and deliver to Sugamo prison IK other mjlitarisls suspected of crimes against prisoners of war. They presumably will be tried by American military commissions . Shimomura became commander of Japan's 13th Army in China Oct. 13, 19/12 •- after the three Doolittle airmen were condemned but before they were killed. Executed while their hands were bound lo crude crosses in a Chinese cemetery on Oct. 15, 1942, were 2nd LI. William Grover Farrow, 2,'j, Darlington, N. J.; 2nd Lt.

"You knew you had issued an order for thorn to march from Balan ga to San Fernando?" "Yes." "Did you inquire the physical conditions of the prisoners of war?" "I did not." Did you consider the conditions at Icampi O'DDonncll your responsibility, as commander-in-chief'.'" • Afler a pause, Hommli replied: "I am morally responsible for anything lhat occurred under rny command." Ifomma testified that allhongh he considered treatment of prisoners of war "an important mailer" he was not kepi, advised as to their treatment except perchance as "the chief of staff had one he thought 1 should know about." He said he was not informed as to what Meek described as the malarial condilion of Ihe death marchers. "Were deaths at O'Donnell (ported lo you?" "I heard a hundred a day were dying." "Didn't you think that excessive?" "Yes, il was." Homma then conceded "his mor al responsibility" and reiterated it despite Mock's statement that he ' 000 for flood defense in the Mississippi valley, and $2,000,000 on the Sacramento river.

However, another reported that disagreements had developed late yesterday which could force further delay. Both agreed, however, that the government's position on steel price increase—key to settleing steel either simultaneously with announcement of the wage-price policy revision, or immediately afterwards.

State May Little Rock, Feb. 6 — (/P)— The state is surveying the possibility of acquiring a 12-acre tract on Petil Jean mountain near Morrilton for inclusioh in Ihe Petil Jean Stale Park, Governor Laney disclosed lo- ay. The land formerly belonged to the YMCA but now'is the property of the Reconstruction Finance Cor poiation. It embraces the area known as "The Point" on Petit Jean mountain and has been developed partially -as a camp site and recreation area. The governor said it had not yet been determined how the state could acquire the properly or whether money was available without a legislative appropriation for the purchase. He conferred by telephone today with Dr. T. W. Ilardison of Morrilton, a member if I ho resources and development commission on Ihe matter.

A reporter asked whether Mr. Truman would leave Monday as planned for a Florida vacation if the labor situation has not been adjusted by that time. "That's an if question," Ayers replied. "I'll answer when the time comes." Bowles had been scheduled to testify on wage-price policy before the House Banking Committee tomorrow but word came from the committee that-his appearance had been postponed until Monday. Lending weight to belief here that a major break is due in the strike situation, CIO President Philip Murray summoned a strategy conference tomorrow between leaders of the CIO's "big three" unions—automobile, 'electrical and steel workers. These together represent 1,125,000 striking workers and have adopted a "stick together" policy in considering wage settlements. Murray insisted last night however, lhat there was "nothing significant" in Thursday's meeting. • An official close to the 'government policy makers said the new wage-price statement would include relaxation of the present regulation, which prohibited management from seeking price relief in less than six months after mak-" ing a voluntary wage increase. One top level adviser asserted that the provisions would be "broad enough to cover the electrical workers and other re«">nver- sion wage disputes." This, pre sumably, would include the Gen eral Motors strike and the meat packing wage case. Industry leaders have made par ticular point of price problems in Ihe eleclncal and meat packing wage demands, as well as in the steel case. A federal factfinding board is expected to make recom mendations son for a wage increase in the meat industry, combining it with specific proposals for a corresponding increase in meal prices.
