Green disclaims for thc Klan any Jew, Catholic or ClO-balting. He insists his order is law-abiding and has as much right to exist as thc masons. • , . Soon after Ihe recent lynching o four Negroes in Monroe county by an unmasked band, of white men Green issued a slatement saying the Klan had nothing to do with i and deploring such lawlessness. The Klan was revived in Georgia at about thc same time the CIO was mapping its organization cam paign in thc south and at the time the Negro, was beirig "given the green lighl to vole in the pn Now lhal Congress has passed thc Armed Forces Leave Act of 1946, and thc President's signature has made it the law of Ihc land. Ihcre are probably Ihousands of questions on the minds of millions of cx-scrvicemen and women. Captain Wade H. Admire, U. S. Army Recruiting Officer, Tcxarkana, Ark. has received official interpretations and is passing them on to you through the following questions and answers whicfc will probably be asked by thousands of velcrans and Ihcir families. Q. First of all, just what Is thc Armed Forces Leave Act of 1946? A. Well, thc law provides for compensating thc ex-servicemen and women who were separated under honorable conditions for the furlough or leave time unused by Ihem SI Ihe time of Ihcir separation. No service prior to Seplem- bcr 8, 1939, cUn be considered. Under; this- law, 'selllemenls will be made in non-ncgoliable bonds, maturing in five years and bearing 2Mr percent interest. Q. "How' about the women who served in 'the • various 1 "services? also?' . ' • .'- A Of course. "Women who served in' the WACs, the WAVES, the SPARS, or the Marines and who'had. furlough ' or leave time, coming to them at the time oi their, discharge are eligible under the terms of the -law. • . Q.. How about service in the •Women's Army Auxiliary Corps does that come under the law? ' A. No, it. doesn't. Only thai'ser ice from July 1, 1943, when Ihe Womcns' Army Corps was cslab shed as a Componenl of the Armv f Ihe United Stales can be count cd. W-A-A-C was only an auxiliary of discharge i Corps personnel should write directly to thc Director of Personnel,. .Headquarters U. S. Marine Corps, Washington 25, D. C., and should write dircclly lo Ihe Corn- former Coast Guard personnel mandant. U. S. Coast Guard, Washington 25, D.C. Q. May these claims be presented in person? A: Do not present any claims in person. I'd like to emphasize that. Do not present any claims in person;, it will only delay thc orderly procedure of scllling claims. Send your claim in by mait only. Q. Will any scttlemenl be made in cash? A. No, scltlcmenls will be madp n bonds mailed lo the claimant's ddrcss. United Slales bonds wil c . issued to thc highest $25.00 multiple of thc total amount due he-veteran; the balance, if any vill be paid by Treasurers' check Where the lotal amounl due Ihe eleran is less lhan $50.00, or if he•• veteran was dischareed prior o-January 1, 1943, it will all be >aid by check. These bonds, • as ve slated previously, are -nonnegotiable and will mature with- n five years. However, Congress las made the provision that;the jond's may be .used immediately for •repayment of loans made prior lo July 31. 194G on Government or National Service Life Insurance and for payment of premiums on Government or National Life Insurance policies. '• Q. Who's going to s'etlle Ihcse has died since discharge. Q. Should the survivors use the same application form -as Ihe Vet- A ' No. There will be special forms for survivors. Thc instruction sheet which svill be available at all post offices will tell survivors how to apply. _ Q. What about thc dependents of those persons who died while in service? A. The law provides no benefits for the survivors of persons who died while in the service. Beneficiaries of those persons were en- litlecl to Ihe six months' death grivtuity pay. This law applies only to those veterans who have been honorably ' discharged from thc service and arc sllll living or lo thc survivors of those veterans wlio have died since discharge. Q. What service can be counted when computing leave or furlough? A All periods of active service in the Army, Navy, Marines, or Coasl Guard, since Scplcmber 8, 193!), cxccpl lime AWOL, lime •over leave or time spent in con- 'inement under scnlcnce of courts- nartial. Q. Can you give us an example n computing net furlough or leave ;imc due a veteran. A. Well, suppose the vcleran had 18 months of active service. Kc svould have earned 2Ms times 18, or a tolal of 45 days of furlough or leave time. Now suppose he had used only ten days furlough while in service. There would remain 35 days payable under Ihis law. However, if he was AWOL for 30 days, or in confinement for 30 days, his total aclive service would be reduced to 17 months and his lolal furlough or leave lime reduced lo 42 days. Now minus those ten clays furlough taken, would leave a lolal of 32 days for which he could be paid? Q. Would that be 32 days pay at the grade or rating he held at the time of discharge? A. That's right. If ho were a corporal al the time of discharge lie wil be cnlillccl to one month and ?. days pay at a corporal's base pay, plus longevity pay, foi length of service, if any. Q. Is thc ration money allowcc under this law similar lo lhat al lowed for furlough or leave takei while in service? A. Yes, but this law provides fo a subsistence allowance al Hie rate of 70 cents per day for each day of. unused furlough or leave. Q. Is there any limil on Iho amounl of unused furlough or [cave lime payable under this law.' A. Yes. One hundred and twcnly days is thc maximum furlough or leave time for which pay is allowed. Q. When docs the claim have lo be sent in? A. Anytime within a year bul nol laler than Seplember 1, 1947. Q. How soon do you lliink thc veteran can expect to gel his scl- tlcment for thc amount clue him after he has mailed in his claim? A. There will be approximately 15 million of these claims to bq processed. The services will make Mississippi Negro Legion Post Gets Go-Ahead Sign Greenwood, Miss., Aug. 21 — (UP) —The Greenwood American Legion post last night adopted a petition submitted by IBS Negro war vclerans seeking organization of a Negro post .in > Mississippi, after Lcglonairc Leonard Scruggs, a cotton man, said lhal approval "would do away wilh some of Ihc slink lhat Bilbo has stirred up."

II was reported that thc order slopped !)3 sales lo "schools, in slilutions and local govcnuncnls' until a congressional inquiry esl' , -ablishos Ihcir legality. -* Use of thc clause "local governments" might imply that Hope's right to thc former Southwcslcrn Proving Ground military -airport, a $1,300,000 properly which is now being used as Ihc municipal airport, would be questioned. This, however, would seem unlikely. Our cily was given right of entry to thc property, then ' was granted a permit for use and occupancy. Title still remains in the name of thc government, however; and it is a small matter whether government eventually decides „ make a nominal sale or lease to thc city, so long as we have Ihc use of thc field. As « matter 31 fact, we would certainly prefer for Ihc federal governmenl lo keep 11 lie lo Ihc airport and maintain il. so long as the city were given civ ilinn use of thc field also. There is a common bond between cities and the federal government, where airports are corned 1 , which makes it unlikely indeed that anything about Ihcsc olh- cr "100 per cent discount' trans -factions will interrupt our own use '•'of thc SPG airport. The govern mcnt is already planning to spend hundreds of millions of dollar; helping cities build municipal airports, recognizing Ihc value of all airports to Ihe nation in time of war. And with one federally-built airport already here it is only reasonable lo presume lhal Ihe government is soing to encourage its use by civilians — plus thc further fact that so long as Hope operates it we will have lo maintain it, which is a considerable ex- -Aponsc nllachcd lo Ihis "100 per ccnl discounl' deal. •K * * By JOHN O.

Three factors combined , to . relieve the tension which rapidly was reaching the crisis stage: 1. The release of the seven Americans and two Hungarians who, had been,. held since their plane was fired upon by Yugoslav ' fighters and forced to crash land August 9. They were set free just aiV'.hoUr before U. S, Ambas- sador'Rjphard O.
