ROPER Washington, April 1 —(UP) — Socialist Leader Norman Thomas warned Congress today that continuing the draft is the road to war He asked the Senate military affairs commitco to reject army, navy and State Department requests to extend selective service beyond the present May 15 cxpira- ton date. Appealing for general world disarmament in the interest of peace, Thomus said that a draft extension would only encourage suspicion of American intentions, and generally "irritate relations within and without the country." He accused proponents of the extension of using a "fear of Russia" theme and said Congress should not be ".stampeded" by such talk. Thomas said he, too, feared "Stalin and his blindly devoted world wide Communist party," but that Mother's Friend massaging prepa- selective service would provide no Thomas argued that a bctcr recruiting policy, higher pay and abolition of the "caste system" would bring in needed volunteers ration helps bring ease and comfort to expectant mothers, M OTHER'S FRIEND, nn exquisitely prepared emollient, is useful In all conditions where a bland, mild anodyne massage medium in skin, lubrication is desired.

Then, seven years after their families—and it is and this s?med them in a coherent pattern which became the legislative framework for our belated advance in air commerce and air power. That power reached ils peak, of course, during Ihc last four years, through broad authorities and immense expenditures under the Wai- Powers Acts. Bui now, nearly -a year after V-E Day, we are in a position nol unlike lhal of 1919. We slill have a national air policy based on the Morrow Board recommendations. In the light of 20 jWurs' advancement, it is nol much bellcr than Ihc nothing of the seven lean years after Armistice • Day. There is one cheerful prospect, however. In about a month hearings are scheduled to begin on the so-called Milchcll Bill, which would eslablish a N-alional Air Policy Board of nine members appointed by the President. The bill's author, Sen. Hugn Mil- this board report within three months on Ihe qucslions which seem lo be mosl urgent and vital )V our aviation future. Among them would be the government's policies toward technical progress in air transportation, the size of our peacetime air forces .and their co-ordination with gov eminent agencies related to aviation and transportation, the maintenance of a balanced and expansible aircraft produclion, Ihe rc- lation of civil to mililary aircraft industry, Ihe adaplation of wartime improvements to existing modes of air transportation, and, finally, the co-ordination, strong- tlfcning, and preservation of all types of the nation's commercial transportation. That's a large and jaw-breaking order, but it needs filling. There arc plenty of varied aviation re- work which the annual fund drive supports.

Troops will be out of the coun- ry within a month and a half, the ouncil was informed in the mes- age from Ambassador Andrei iromyko, who however continued lis boycott of the Iranian discus- ion by not actually attending the meeting. Iran, in a letter from Ambassador Hussein Ala, advised that negotiations with Russia, in accord vith a council decision at London, had failed, that Russian interference in Iranian affairs had continued, that .Russia had made demands parallel with her troop withdrawals —but that above all [ran wants a friendly peacful settlement of the situation. American Secretary of State James F: Byrnes asked Ala what ne would suggest. The action packed meeting, expected to pro duce dramatic results of one sort of another ever since the council voted its inquiries to Moscow and Tehran and adjourned last Friday, had reached its .apparent climax. 'If the Soviet representative," Ala said, "would be willing to withdraw the condition of unusual circumstances which he attached to the withdrawal of troops and give the Security Council assurance of withdrawal of all Soviet forces from Iran effective May G at the latest, Iran would be willing not to press for further consideration .of the matter before the ..

Wave's DeafliToll „ Fixed at 176 By DON WHITEHEAD Honolulu, April 3 — (JPj— The multi-million dollar debris of seismic wave-ravaged Hilo yielded seven more bodies today as weary volunteers, spurred by a threat of contagion, continued their unceasing search. The earthquake-born disturbance — now completely subsided —took possibly 176 lives as it pounded shores from the Aleutians to Hawaii, to California and to Peru.. The territorial government of these hardest-hit islands, rushing the roundup of 6,000 fresh diapers and huge stocks of food for desolated Hilo, found time to elicit a pledge of top U. S. priorities for the vast rebuilding task ahead. Damage rose into millions of dollars, and most insurance policies did not cover wave destruction. The territorial toll of 79 dead and 85 missing included: Hilo and Ihe island of Hawaii 55 dead and 73 missing; Kauai 12 and six; Vlaui seven and five, and Oahu five and one. All bodies had been iden- lified. Added to these were 10 presumed deaths in the Aleutians and one each in California and Peru.

Keitel pictured himself as a sort of mililary office boy for Adolf Hiller. He said Ihc fuehrer "unambiguously" assumed all power of issuing army orders, and as chief of Ihc high command he himself "never was in position to issue orders." The testimony developed into « hodge-podge of ideological contradictions in which Keitel professed responsibility for all the deeds done on orders bearing his signature yet claimed that he was litllc more than a rubber stamp for recording to Hit'er's whims. He said mosl of Ihe orders lo Ihe gress." II added Lhal ho 'has follosvcd Orders given lo him to be signed, Keitel said, "many times presented deviations from the existing in- Id-national law.

Keitel sal boldly upright before Ihe microphone, his hands folded in his lap. Generally he spoke in a firm, clear voice. He lossed in the observalion that of his three sons, the youngcsl died in Russia, Ihe second was heard from lasl as a major in Russia, and Ihe eldesl was a prisoner. Although nol a member of the Nazi party, he said, because of his rank he accompanied Hitler to many party functions. Stiffly he said he did nol lake part in inlra- party conferences "because the fuehrer told me he did not wish my presence." He expressed gratitude for the present opportunity "to give an account to the German people" of cvenls for which he accepled re- Ihe strict isolationist doctrine from Ihc beginning."

Dixon, a native of this state, began his career as a lawyer but he soon turned to the Baptist ministry. For ten years he preached in New York City to ever growing congregations. He wrote his first novel, "The Leopard's Spots," in 1902. It dealt with reconstruction in the Piedmont area of the Carolinas and noted him $100,000 by the sale of a million copies. "The One Woman," came next followed by "The Clansman." In all. he wrote 22 novels, dealing with post-Civil War problems of the South, love, and social problems. was satisfied with counter proposals offered in an attempt to end the 73-day strike against 10 harvester plants.

"As a result," said one government survey, "people have congregated in Ihe large urban cen- lers of Greece."

Both OPA and the Agriculture Department-have recommended increases, and their proposals are being sludied by the Office of Economic Stabilizalion, according lo these officials who withheld use of their names. "The whole question of how much the increases may be is still very much up in the air," said one official, "but in the case of milk a jump of about a half cent ' a quart looks about right." An increase of thai amount for milk, he added, would mean a hike of about six cents a pound for butler and aboul three cents for cheese. There has been no decision whether any milk price increase will be nationwide. There is a possibility it may be authorized only for the so-called deficit producing areas the South and the Pacific and Atlantic coast areas —but not in the Midwest, the center of dairy produclion.
