The purpose of the order, which they said was prepared by national selective service head- quarters, would be to prevent collapse of the selective service machinery. The president they said, to make the selective service organization a part of the execu- tive office under recently enacted reorganization legislation. They' declined to be quoted directly. The house may act late today on a senate measure extending the draft law until. July 1. Unless congress or the presi- dent acts, committee members said, local draft boards will go out of existence at midnight May 15 and the machinery for resum- ing inductions later will have been junked.

Keenan turned to the surren- der ultimatum prepared by the allies, at the Potsdam conference last July for further support for his argument. From paragraph 13, he read: "We call upon the government of Japan to proclaim now the un- conditional surrender of all Japanese armed forces...." And from paragraph six: "There must be eliminated for all time the authority and in- fluence of those who have de- ceived and misled the people of Japan into embarking on world conquest...." Kiyose took a different view of the Potsdam declaration. Under its terms, he said, the allies could prosecute all war criminals guilty of violating ac- cepted laws and customs of war. But he argued that no provision was made for charges included in the present indictment which hold- the defendants responsible for inciting war and for mis- treatment of allied peoples. r "The' Potsdam declaration not only binds Japan, but. binds the the white-haired counsel declared.'
