Release Of Men Nor Needed In Occupation Forces WASHINGTON. Jan. The war department undertook to recast its entire demobilization program today, as pressure mounted from disgruntled GI's demonstrating overseas. Pending this revision, Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower author- ized theater commanders to waive all point score require- ments in getting home men not needed in the occupation forces. At the same time, Gen. Jacob L. Devers. chief of the army ground forces, told the country that public clamor for bringing the boys back immediately is "jeopardizing our security and wrecking the morale of men needed to maintain the peace." Change From Slow-Down The announcement that the army was redrafting its demobil- ization program came less than a week after the war department ordered its demobilization slow- :lown which touched off the ies of GI demonstrations in the Pacific and Europe. This slow-down order was the first drastic change in demobil- ization policy since the broad general program was announced after V-E day. There was no hint what lines the new demobilization program would follow, but the army promised that the revised plan would be forthcoming "shortly." Despite Eisenhower's order and the promise of a new demobili- zation program, increasing dis- satisfaction with the entire situ- ation was voiced on capitol hill by some lawmakers returning for the opening session of congress next week. Senator Says Program Snarled Senator George A. Wilson (R- lowa) was of the opinion that both army and navv release pro- grams are so snarled that only congressional action can get them untangled.

Disclosure that a detailed new armv demobilization program is in the works was made yester- day by acting Secretary of War Kenneth C.

That's all I can say now." The operators contend that supervisors are overworked, and there is tno intense observation and too close supervision of op- orators by company officials. A I company spokesman said the walkout came because it insisted that supervisors do the duties for which they were hired and add- ed "no new duties have been add- ed." A conference between union and company officials, with assis- tant director Howard T. Colvin of the federal conciliation service sitting in, was arranged for this afternoon. The operators started their walkout at 10 a. in. Washington phone service was immediately curtailed. Dial Phones Unaccected Efforts to reach operators brought either no answer or a re- corded'announcement saying that "operators arc on Dial telephones were not af- fected but union leaders said they expected every member operator to attend the meeting, which would tie up long distant service and service on exchange operat- ed manually.

A union spokesman said today long distance telephone op- erators would leave their posts here at 7 o'clock tomorrow morning and would be joined by more during the day. Such action would be the first step in a threatened nationwide shutdown of long distance tele- phone service ns a result of yes- terday's walkout by telephone in- stallation workers. John J. Mor- gan, president of the federation of long line telephone workers, announced the action. The walkout would be simul- taneous with the establishment of picket lines around the Amer- ican Telephone and Telegraph building at 32 avenue of the Am- ericas. The building, largest tel- ephone office in the city, houses all long distance, trans-oceanic and shin-to-shore telephone com- munications. Paradox _ BOISE, Idaho. Jan. 10.
