iM&*4g&*llfcAMM>M$afe*>$*9*S W*** I >o§e Six Winds Code Invalid, Says Navy Witness Washington. Feb. 19— (UP)— Col. Robert Schukraft, 1941 signal intelligence officer, told Congress' .Pearl Harbor Investigating Committee today that he saw a Japanese "winds" messase several days before the a tack on Pearl Harbor, but immediately determined that the message was not authentic. He said that the message was, low the proper pattern of the codes Set by the Japanese to inform their attaches throughout the world that hostilities were about to commence. Schukraft said he had been informed that the navy considered it Authentic. He did not think it was authentic because it did not include a weather phrase five times in the proper sequence. He said that the h message was transmitted by morse code? rather than voice broadcast as planned Originally by the Japanese. He added that the words "east wind rain," code, for a diplomatic break! with the United States, were not in- 1 eluded. Capt. L. I 1 . Safford. navy decoding chief, previously testified that the words "war with Britain, war With the United States, peace with Russia" had been written on the copy of a "winds" message that he saw. Schukraft said it was h his "impression" that some handwriting Was on the dispatch, but he could not-remember what it was He told the committee a "pilot message" setting up the code came to his attention on Dec .6. and that the message was "so important" that the army signal intelligence office was reopened after being closed for the day. •The witness agreed with previous army and navy officers apnearing before the committee, who considered a "winds" execute "was not so important" after it HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Could Victoria Reign 63 Years with Stomach Ulcer Pains?

Naval enlisted men barricaded in castle barracks, a naval establishment in the castle section in the heart of the downtown area were bcscigcd by British Tommies and Indian troops. The troops had ordcrcs to quell what the Indian navy's flag officer called a "state of open mutiny." There were reports a truce ended the fight at Castle Barracks shortly before 5:30 p.m. (7 a.m. Eastern Standard Time;, but gunfire still echoed through the city at 11 p.m. Nine warcraft held by the strikers maneuvered into battle pisition in the harbor as the troops and barricaded seamen exchanged rifle and machincgun fire.

They had entered that Manchurian city only this week after months of denials of pleas lo visit the region. The same sources said the correspondents now arc being taken on a conducted tour of Mukden and later likely would bc taken on a sponsored tour of Changchun, capital of Manchuria, and of Harbin before being permitted lo return to the lines of Chinese government forces. Tending to confirm the report was the sudden cancellation Wednesday, without official cx- planalion, of a scheduled marine flight to Chinhsein to pick up the correspondents stories to fly them to a communications head. Marines in Tientsin said they were informed the special plane was cancelled because Ihe correspondents' stories had not arrived in Chinhsein, as scheduled.

After five fruitless conferences, the company and union yesterday began to settle issues centering around wages, union security, promotions and transfers and local plant problems, Dewey reported. Meanwhile rival auto makers sought to replenish their steel supplies so they could get back into production. General Molors engineers were reported to have designed more efficient tools during the past three months, but these tools largely were on the drafting boards and other companies were far ahead in the actual job of reconverting their plants. Nevertheless, it will be about 30 days before most automotive companies recover from the steel shortage and get back into full production, a United Press survey indicated. Production generally was not expected to reach its peak until around June 1. Relatively few cars and trucks have been made since the end of January because of the steel and General Motors strikes. Ford Motor Company reported it would be another two weeks before steel supplies return to normal and two or three weeks afterward before assembly lines begin rolling at the River Hougc plant. Chrysler, the third member of the "big three" auto makers, has been operating on a big steel reserve built up before the strike.

Such a course, By BRUCE W. MUNN London, Feb. 21 — (UP) —Russia and Britain traded.angry counter charges over Soviet .atom bomb spying in North America today and informed diplomatic observers warned that relations between the two countries were approaching the crisis stage British Foreign Secretary Ernest Bevin was expected to meet the situation head-on when he rises in Commons at 6 p .m. this evening (1:15 p. m. E.S.T.) to close the parliamentary debate on foreign affairs. The official Communist party organ Pravda brought the issue to a head early today with the blunt charge that the current spy scare in Canada was part of a deliberate anti-Russian campaign by the British Empire. . : . Pravda accused Canadian Prime -vjn.isie.- W. L. MacKcnzie King of exposing the Soviet spying in . a sensational manner only to divert attention from Bevin's- "failures" m the UNO meeting in London. Pravda's latest outburst came too late for reaction by British morning newspapers, but London's Conservative press already was in print with a strong denunciation of the line taken by Russia in Radio Moscow broadcasts last night The Daily Mail declared that the Kremlin was following a "dangerous course" and warned that the situation must be corrected. "Events cannot be allowed to drift, for that way, sooner or later, lies disaster," the Mail said. . The Daily Telegrah's diplomatic correspondent said Russia's squabbling with Britain over this and other matters, including the projected peace treaties with the defeated Axis states, might force postponement of the peace conference scheduled to be held in Paris in May. . .'-..' The Telegraph saw in Moscow's attitude "a ruthless diplomatic ve- netta of the Kremlin against Britain and the British Empire." •• • There appeared to be no political disagreement between British Labontes and Conservatives over Bevin's strong stand against the Kussians on such issues as Iran Indonesia and Greece, although the Labontes generally were urging caution on the new spy developments. The main line of the Conservative argument was that swift'ac- tion must be taken to restore Anglo-Russian relations to something" resembling the wartime'coopera- tion of the two nations. Only the British: Communists were critical of the government stand. The London Daily Worker voiced the party line that MacKenzie King had used the "old Red scare" in handling the espionage affair and was following Nazi propaganda methods.
