By DQN DOANE BAD NAUHEIM, Germany, June former Lich- field guardhouse prisoner testi- fied today that he saw Lt. Leon- ard W. Ennis of Peekskill, N. Y. repeatedly ask prisoners where they had been wounded and then "poke" their wounds with his billy club. This happened "ten or twelve times that I said the wit- ness, Mike Koblmsky of Saginaw, Mich., who still is serving a court martial sentence. Ennis is one of two officers now on trial on char- ges of cruelty to inmates of the U. S. army guardhouse in Lich- field, England, during the last year of the war. In the simultaneous trial of Lt. Granville Cubage of Oklahoma City, lawyers' attempts to ascer- tain Cubage's official responsi- bility over discipline of-prisoners ran into frequent refusal of a witness to answer questions which he said "might tend to incrimin- ate" him. The witness was Capt. Joseph A. Robertson of Akrdn, O., who, although he is awaiting trial on the same charges, told the court martial he had not yet been pro- vided with defense counsel. Robertson said 'Cubage "was performing some of the duties of a prison officer" but he did not know if that was his official title during the time the prosecution charges he was responsible for mistreating prisoners. iWEATHER Bread and Flour Shortages for Year Now Are Predicted By OVID A. MARTIN WASHINGTON, June and flour shortages for at least another year was the forecast handed American house- wives today despite the start, on harvesting another of the nation's bumper wheat crops. The agriculture department re- ported considerable improvement in bread and flour supplies are expected in another month, but hardly to the extent needed to meet all domestic and famine re- lief demands before the 1947 har- vest. The bread scarcity in a num- ber of major cities meanwhile verged on the acute an Associated Press spot survey also disclosed the same held true for meat. Soap, butter and cooking fats ranked next on the list of increasingly hard-to-get items. The outlook in the cities cov- ered seemed to be that these shortages would grow worse be- fore the situation improved. Har- vesting of the new wheat crop promised to ease the bread-flour picture, but complex uncertain- ties ma'de thp prospects dubious for any big improvement in the supply of meats, butter, or fats. In its June crop report issued yesterday, the agriculture depart- ment said the third consecutive- billion-bushel wheat crop and the third largest crop of record was indicated by conditions pre- vailing on June 1. The crop estimate' was put at bushels, or about bushels more than was indicated a month earlier. While about bushels below last year's record harvest, this year's crop stands out as a large one in comparison to the 10-year (1935-44) average of bushels. There still is time for further improvement in production pros- in the more northern producing areas where the crop matures it is hardly possible fov the final out- turn to be large enough to allow consumers all their want.

ABBOGAST -S WASHINGTON, June unprecedented spectacle of one supreme court justice pub- licly assailing another stunned of- ficial Washington today, but sev- eral lawmakers held it might lead to restoring what they term the "lost dignity" oi.the tribunal. The bombshell which Justice Robert H. Jackson exploded in his blunt .'attack on Justice Hugo Black projected a Jong-smoldeiir ing judicial i'eud out into the open, and these influential law- makers thought this could be u good thing in the long run. Specifically, they snid prlvnte- ly congress may order u complete overhaul of court procedure in nn effort to minimize "blckerinu" on und behind llm bench'. No Pnrullel In Modern At the moment, however, the capit.nl buzzed with more imme- diate speculation over whether Jackson and Black intended to continue on the high bench, des- pite a virtual state of war be- tween them.
