At present there are nearly veterans receiving on-the- job training in the state, and Fuller said the number was ex- pected to increase substantially. The expansion was first sug- gested by Gen Omar N. Bradley, national VA administrator, in a letter to Gov Charles M. Dale suggesting increased state re- sponsibility for the program. The matter was considered and ap- proved by the State Board of Ed- ucation at its last meeting. The expansion program in- 'one of the most vital issues be- fore the United Nations. "The democratic institutions cherished in America could not have long endured except with the full freedom of expression possible only through un- trammelled press. "Likewise, preservation of world peace, won at appalling costs, will be dependent largely upon a full flow of information in a world press free to speak the truth, bring enlightenment to all peoples, and, hence, pro- mote international understand ing."

NE GOVERNORS Page 2 Seamen's Decision Spurs Drive Against Wage Control Washington, Sept 14 UP) White House decision in the sea- men's wage dispute spurred a fresh drive by some labor unions today for relaxation or scrapping of wage controls. Mixed with it were demands that public and industry mem- bers resign from the Wage Sta- bilization Board. They turned down as inflationary the wage increases which AFL maritime workers finally secured through White House of the stabilization rules. The four members indicated to reporters, however, that they have no intention of stepping out so long as President Truman stands firm on the position that Stabilization Director John R. Children Damaging Property Complaints of children causing damage to property or misbe- having in other ways declined to four yesterday, police said, three of the reports involv- ing boys playing ball in forbid- den places, and children acting in a disorderly manner. One boy was caught after he had broken a window in an East I Pearl st store and his parents promised to pay for the damage after police had told them what he had done. Boys were stopped playing ball on Hanover st and Pine st and children were warned to stop running through a gaiden on Amhersr. st. I Another Boner President Doesn't Seem To Know Who Heads State Deplr Washington, Sept 14 publicans accused President j Truman today of angling for political advantage on the issue of American relations with Rus- sia and invited to choose between Secretary of State Byrnes and Secretary of Com- merce Wallace as his exponent of foreign policy. As GOP members loosed blasts of criticism, there were widen- ing repercussions elsewhere from the President's piioi approval of Wallace's Thursday night plea at a New York political meet'ng for a softer policy tow- ard Russia and his endorsement of the sphere-of-influence idea previously repudiated by Byrnes. 1. It became clear that Mr Truman has a full-sized Cabinet split over foreign policy on his hands. 2. Some uncertainty over pol- icy was evidenced at the State Department. Undersecretary Wi'l L. Clayton told a news confer- ence the Wallace speech was not cleared with the department and that it was not quite clear to him just what the President intended by his approval. Any clarification, he said, would have to come from Mr Truman. Top officials left the sion, however, that they believ- ed no actual change was cor- templated from the policies Byrnes has pursued. 3.

"Its public and industry mem- bers have forfeited the confi- dence of the public and labor and should resign a't once." John L.' Lewis' United Mine Workers Journal commented edi- torially: "WSB is done. Board members should close up shop and turn in their resignations." Unionists have complained fre- quently that wages have been held down but prices have not. CIO President Philip Murray, in a speech this week at Milwau- kee, was critical of all wage sta- bilization.

After heated debate, the church's, House of Bishops yes- terday voted down 66-44 a mar- riage-divorce liberalization plan which a commission on matri- mony had taken six years to write. The rejected report was aimed at lifting the restriction that no one may remarry in the church during the lifetime of a former mate except the innocent party to a divorce granted on grounds of adultery. The commission on matrimony recommended that remarriage be permitted when- ever the bishop of a diocese de- termines that a broken marriage has not been a true union of body, mind and spirit. While the House of Bishops was to consider the special com- mittee's report, the proposal for the possible merger of the Epis- copal church with the Presby- terian church was to be discussed MARRIAGE Page 2 Wards 74th Anniversary Sale!

He said that if all the meat dealers in Massachusetts sold that product alone, 80 percent would be forced to close com- pletely next week. Many of them, however, carry other pro- ducts. Housewives, shopping in the big Boston market district yes- terday, found few cuts available. A similar situation prevailed in many other sections of the six states. (Associated PI-CBS) CIO mariners were to exchange places with AFL seamen on pic- ket lines around the nation's deep water ports today as the greatest maritime stoppage in history continued. However, in Baltimore, Wil- liam Rentz, port agent for AFL Seafarers International union, which with the AFL sail- j ors of the Pacific, ended its ra-l tionwide strike, said that AFLJ seamen in the Maryland port ex- pected today to cross picket lines established by the CIO men. His announcement came sev- eral hours after Paul Hall, port agcnl in New York for the SIU- Si.JP, said in announcing the end of the AFL strike that AFL mem- bers would refuse to cross CIO picket lines. The AFL withdrew all its East Coast and Gulf Coast pickets last night with this announcement: ''The operators informed us of their willingness to follow the original agreement signed by them and the SIU-SUP, which gave the seafarers the highest wages ever received by seamen.
