Town State If Mediation, Fact-Finding Fail to Avert Strike WASHINGTON. Jan. The labor department forecasts that, if mediation and fact-find- ing fail to avert a threatened strike in the meat packing indus- try, government seizure will be a last resort. This was made known last night by Kdgar L. Warren, chief of the federal conciliation serv- ice, after a late afternoon confer- ence with Secretary of Labor Schwellenbaeh. Warren told reporters that the labor department will not rec- ommend seizure of the meat packing plants, but that such a proposal might come from Sec- retary of Agriculture Anderson. On Wednesday Anderson .said that the government could not permit a meat tie-up. PLAN "PAPKR FOR HIUSTO1V OKLAHOMA CITY.

Wyatt, former mayor of Louis- ville, Ky.. was bare'ly settled in new quarters at the o'ffice of war mobilisation and reconversion when Mr. Tn.rnan made his first "fireside chat" report to the peo- ple. In it. he named housing as the their j "most, difficult problem" among the three major elements of the stand; rd of cloth- ing and shelter. The New Year will bring peak food production. Mi-. Truman predicted, and satisfactorily out- put of ainiarcl. "but in housing the situation is diferent."

"that this is an emergency problem which calls for an cin- ergoncy method of solution.

(Private building organizations have estimated that the construc- tion industry cannot provide more than new homes this year, 750.000 in and 1 000.000 in Mr. Truman said his 5.000.000 figure did not include replace- ment of millions of sub-standard dwellings in cities and on farms which ultimately will have to be replaced. MacArthur Directives Means Getting Rid of Ultra- Militarist Persons, Societies j By RUSSELL BRINKS TOYKO, Jan., 4. MacArthur today decreed a dras- tic "housecleaning" of Japan's government, and premier Shide- hara's cabinet called an emer- gency Cession .for tomorrow to consider methods of compliance. taunting informed quarters, the Japanese news agency Kyodo said that the two new directives or- dering a purge of all men who led Japan into war would affect practically every member of the present government. It except- ed specifically only premier Ki- juro Shidehaia. foreign minister Shigeru Yoshida and justice isler Chuzo Iwata. i Toyko newspapers interpreted the allied orders as a move to give Janan new leaders, and Kyodo said the first reaction among pol- iticians was one of bewilderment. Present Diet Members 'Out' It quoted a member of the pro- gressive party as saying "this practically means that all memb- ers of the present diet will not be able to run in the coming elec- tion. Even if they did run, they will not have a chance." The directive ordered the gov- ernment to abolish all ionalist, terrorist and militarist groups or .societies and to oust from public office and influence persons who "deceived and mis- led the people of Japan into em- barking on work) conquest." The directive picked up where the war criminal lists left off. The new move makes the first incision into encrusted bureau- crats and politicians controlling the government. The consterna- tion in public offices probably w-il be matched by the people's applause. Allied Impatience The new orders serve notice of allied impatience with Japanese efforts to rid themselves of pcr- sonnages and organizations in- strumental in the militarist era. Patrotic societies, such as the Black Dragon, supposedly have been dissolved. But the Japanese press reports at least eight of than 30 current political parties are led by former right- ists. The first immediate effect of the orders will be to disqualify dozens of the strongest candidates from old line parlies form com- ing national elections. This will widen the field for the indcpen- the extensiveness of political machines opposing them. It will minimize the hold over influence of the "Tojo diet." Says Action in Congress Distressingly Slow on Most Of His Reconversion Measures Badly Needed Now; Labor Disputes Settled, Prices Kept on Even Keel By U. HAROLD OLIVER WASHINGTON, Jan. Truman call- ed on the American people today to domnnd more action and less talk from congress on legislation to lessen strikes. He also told the nation in a half-hour radio address last night that "time is running out" on most of his other recon- version measures because action in senate and house has been "distressingly slow."

This information went into the record along with the word that that fatal Sunday morning December 7, liltl, the navy flew a Ill-plane patrol in just the op posite direction from which the Japanese task force was advanc ing. Report Hitherto Srcrct The source of these details was the hitherto secret report the late Secretary of the Navy Knox made to President Roosevelt soon after his' return from a flying trin to the scene of the disaster. Senator Ferguson who obtained the report from navy files, said it differed from the one made public at the time. Admiral Harold R. Stark, chief of naval operations in 1941. told the committee that IIP had never seen the Knox report to Mr. Roosevelt until today. He said Knox had filled him in on some details in conversations. Knox told Mr. Roosevelt that both the commanders at Pearl Harbor. Admiral Husband E. Kimmel and Maj. Gen. Walter C. Short, were completely sur- prised. Third Wave Turned Bark Other points of the Knox re- port included: 1. Nothing but "ineffective ma- chine gun fire" met the first of three waves of attacking Japan- ese planes, but the third wave was turned back. 2. American radio and other equipment were recovered from the wreckage of Japanese planes. One had n Lewis gun of v Ullage. :t. Knox attributed the lack of adequate fighter plane strength on Oahu before the war to diver- sion of aircraft to the British, Chinese and the Russians.
