It is the men who are philosophical about shortages. You don't see Ihem knocking each other down to buy shirts, though they need them as badly as women need stockings. It is the men who seem to be especially considerate of Ihe feelings of olhers. Their manners in public are on the whole far superior to the manners of women. Who resents Ihe foreign bridas being shipped to this country to -rejoin their husbands? The women. Not pretty pictures of American womanhood, these candid shots. But they are worth considering.

Maintenance Men at CM Go to Work By UNITED PRESS Cleanup and maintenance men returned to work today at 4(3 of General Motors corporation's 92 strikebound auto plants, but hope faded for an early settlumenl ot the West- iiifihouse Electric Corporation strike. International Harvester company meanwhile, announced it had offered the CIO Farm Equipment Workers an 1H cent hourly pay boost contingent on setlemenl of other contract issues after strikers return to their jobs. Company and union officials will meet today to discuss the offer. Thirty thousand harvester workers have been on strike for 59 days i.;ver a :iO per cent wage increase demand. The 121-day-old United Auto Workers (CIO) strike against GM kept 175.000 workers idle, and 75,000 Westinghouse workers stayed away from their jobs for the GGth day. Other strikes across the nation affected more than 160,000 workers. Top UAW officials rejected a General Motors demand that all locals be ordered to end the strike immediately. GM said that non-union maintenance and cleanup men would return only to those plants where union locals have settled pli'iil grievances. The oporation warned that none of the production workers would be recalled while any of the union locals continued to strike. Fifteen locals have not reported yet on the questions ol relit.cation "f the national contract and returning to work pending settlement ot local grievances. More than 30 locals have voted to stay off the job until such grievances arc settled. The United Electrical Radio and Machine Workers (CIOi strike against Westinghouse went into its filith day with no settlement in sight alter the union had rejected a company wage increase offer of 15 1 cents per hour. Negotiations for a new bituminous coal contract continued at Washington. John L. Lewis, preside" 1 of the United Mine Workers (ArLi. was to resume conversations with the bituminous coal oper- .-'t'ns l.-rlny. It anpeared that the negotiations might approach the -xi-j.ji i strike deadline without a -solution of the wage question. Homma Must Die, Rules MacArthur , Tokyo, March 21 —i/l'i— Genernl MacArthur today decreed a firing- squad death for Lt. Gen. Masaharu Homma, his victorious foe in the KM2 baltle for l.lataan, and disagreed sharply with two U. f> Supreme Court justice dissenters— one of whom had termed the sentence vengeance rather than justice. Date and details of the execution, which now could be stayed only by President Truman, will bo determined In Manila. \ Affirming Ihe Manila court mar- ' tin! conviction of Homma, who ordered the infamous liataan dealh march that cost 17.200 lives, MacArthur asserted: "If this defendant does not deserve his judicial fate, none in jurisdiction:)! history ever did." Before announcing his decision, MacArthur .studied opinions ox- pressed by Supreme Court ,Ius- liccs Murphy and TUilledge, who clissenled when the court refused lo intervene for Momma. Murphy i has denounced Momma's trial as' . n descent "lo the level of revengeful blood purges." MacArlhur declared "no trial could have been fairer" and said dissenters "either advocale ;irbi trariness of process above faclunl realism, or . . . inherently shrink from the stern rigidity of capital punishment." Stripped of Uniform Tokyo, March 21 — i/Vi—LI. Gen. Masahtiru Homma presumably will Ro before an American firing ( squad in civilian clothing. He was stripped of his uniform and decorations by Ihe Japanese government last Oct. Ill — A month after his arrest on war crimts charges. The Japanese -public learned of thai only today. It is understood that the action —called the most severe punishment ever imposed on a Japanese general — was laken after Emperor Hirohito was informed of the accusations against Homma. • AAU Boxing Tournament Opens at L R.

Veteran's Job Rights Taken Into Court By MAX HALL Washington, March 20 —(/I 1 )— At iasl the confusing argument over the seniority rights of returning veterans has been tossed into the lap of the Supreme court' Now we may find out who's cor reel about it. Yesterday Abraham Fishgold, a Brooklyn veteran, appealed to the Supreme court to protect his reemployment rights. More about fishgold in a moment. Here's the background: Paragraph o fthc ^elective service act says that a veteran has a right to his old job for at least ?n'i c ycar Mflcr hc returns to it. the law also says a person so restored to his job shall be considered as having been on leave of absence, with no loss in seniority while hc was away. But the law leaves a lot unsaid. The biggest unanswered question is- this: inust the veteran be given his old job even if it means the firing of a worker with greater seniority? Government agencies have never been able to agree on this question. Selective service and the labor department are on opposite sides Selective Service long ago look the position that the veteran must be given his old job or one of equal status, in preference to all non-veterans, regardless of their length of service with the company . Ihis doctrine is sometimes called "super-seniority " . The Justice Department, after remaining neutral for a while, decided to support the Selective Service interpretation. Labor unions took another view. They didn I object to the rchiring of veterans — in fact they have encouraged it Veterans belong to unions, too But the unions argued that the seniority system — giving pretercnce in hiring and layoffs to men with the longest service —has been established in industry after a long struggle. They said "super- seniority" would wreck that system, and in the long run 'would ' Wllh othcr New York, March 2(1 —cUP) — The United Electrical, Radio and Machine Workers of America 'CIO) today flally rejected a Westinghouse Electric Corp. offer which company officials said would have meant an overall in- should not be loo sure of our conclusion; and obviously the really important matter is that the question should reach the Supreme court as soon as possible." crease of 15.1 cents .per houlr, ,fo')f the 75,000 striking employes.

The American Legion, for one, strongly supports ^ the Selective Service position. In fact, a spokesman said today the Legion may decide to intervene in the Fishgold case before the Supreme Court, in order to battle for the Selective Service So far, there have been four decisions in t edoral Courts. Two have gone one way, and two the other. The I'lshgold case is the only one that has been decided by a'U S court of appeals. The Sullivan Drydock and Repair Company, Brooklyn, had to make some layoffs. On two different occasions it laid off Abraham Fishgold, a welder, and kept non-veterans on the payroll who had longer service with the firm. Fishgold said this was a violation of the law since he had not -yet been back ;on the job one year and his I special stalus as a returning voter- jan was still in effect. Federal Judge Matthew T. Abritz- zq of Brooklyn ruled in favor of Fishgold — thus upholding Selective Service. But two weeks ago, , J' S ,V c i rcllit Co "rt of Appeals at New York, in a 2-1 decision, reversed Judge Abruzzo — thus upholding the Labor department. Ihe Court of Appeals held that it was not the intent of the lav to give industrial priority, regard- loss- ot length of employment, to "unmarried men — for the most part under 30 — over men in- the JO's, 40's,.or 50's, who had wive;; and children dependent on them " However ,the court said: "The fact that we are ourselves not agreed cautions us that we i ing to get space for the film.
