He contended that his years in the Orient he was born there and has spent most of his. adult life in China had convinced him that America must not give independence to the Philippines and that the islands do not want it. Mr. Fitch said that Manuel Quezon, president of the Philippines, had campaigned for independence "but was too astute really to want independence" in view of the present threat of the Japanese, now a partner in the Germany-Italy axis.

Senator H. Styles Bridges, of New Hampshire, who aspired to the Republican presidential nomination, told an audience at Lincoln High school here tonight that President Roosevelt "committed a grievous error if he knew the aims of Adolf Hitler and took so long to begin attempts to forestall them." "The President," Mr. Bridges said, "apparently was negligent in not making an earlier national defense move if he was aware as Democrats claim of Hitler's plans."

While this went on, another corps of typists began the big job of typing up the long list of tin registration bureaus add ressei which will be available today. Although a person of conscript aga (21 through 35 years) may register at any of these points or anywhere in the United States th county commissioners again urged that to avoid congestion at downtown locations, registrants visit their home districts, where possible, Students Given Directions Although the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Tech will establish their own registration bureaus, officials added a plea that only out-of-town students use thes locations. Meanwhile, Judge Harry H Rowand, chairman of the county's draft advisory board which ia charged with the establishing of 61 local draft boards to sit about the) county and review cases after registrants are called for service, said that state officials had taken the list of 183 board-members, three to each board, and 61 physicians, on to each, to Harrisburg. A list of 61 attorneys to act as appeal agenta at each board will be sent today, he added. Locations Not Announced The actual organization of the registration locations will be left, in large part, to supervising registrars who will receive their instructions at a meeting at th County Courthouse Monday afternoon. The organization of the draft boards, it was indicated yesterday in Washington, will be left up to the boards themselves.

Hanst. Nine men and a girl will begin flying lessons this week-end under scholarships they won for scoring highest among 78 men and women who recently completed the Civil Aeronautics Authority's ground school course for non-college students. The two who scored highest, pretty Mrs. Dorothy Jones of 873 Boggs avenue, Mt. Washington, and Bob E. Touzalin of 5739 Center avenue were honor guests yesterday at a luncheon meeting of the Aero Club of Pittsburgh, which with the Junior Chamber of Commerce sponsored the courses held in the Washington Trade school. Henry S. Carr, Jr., director of the course, another of which will begin within the next two weeks, said that although there has been much justifiable criticism of CAA, there is no doubt that courses such as that just completed arouse an interest in flying among young people. "Just now 28 of the boys that took the course are trying to get into the flying cadets," Mr. Carr said at the meeting in the Hotel Henry. Although Bob Touzalin, 23, and a graduate of Massachusetts Institute of Technology, does not plan to go directly into army or navy flying after he completes his free course at the Pittsburgh-Butler Airport, he said that he will stand ready for such service for his country "if I'm needed." Just now, however, he has a good position with a steel company. "But if I were unemployed," he added, "I'd join the army or navy rieht away.
