THE ADA EVENING NEWS BUY MORE WAR BONDS 42nd Year—No. 232 Would Hold Island Bases Sen. Mognuson Follows Trumon Statement With Strong Plea for Keeping m Them By ALEX H. SINGLETON WASHINGTON, Jan. 16.—— Senator Magnuson (D-Wash) called today for acquisition of some British-owned island bases in connection with any loan to England. Magnuson’s comment to a reporters came in the wake of President Truman's declaration that this country intends to retain exclusive control over any form Japanese islands it needs for security in the Pacific. The chief executive told his news conference yesterday that other Japanese owned or mandated islands will be placed under United Nations trusteeship. He added that no decision has been reached on just what bases this country wants to keep by itself under exclusive trusteeship. Navy’s Wanted Chain Mr. Truman’s words backed up arguments of American military and naval officials who long have urged permanent development of a chain of island bases from the Aleutians in the north to Manus in the south. The president’s assertion also amounted to a virtual directive to the American delegation to the United Nations assembly in London. Magnuson, however, said this country should go even further now toward getting the bases it needs both in the Atlantic and the Pacific — and whether they belong to enemy or ally. Magnuson On "Inside** A lieutenant commander in the naval reserve, Magnuson before becoming a senator was chairman of the house naval subcommittee which conducted a secret inquiry with war. navy and state department officials on this country’s island defense needs. Now a member of the senate naval committee, he said the question of acquiring British bases “essential to our defenses’* —either on a permanent or longterm lease basis—should be rais-cd before Jfre^nrflnnuad A1 OOu,OOO loan to Britain is approved. “I don’t know why, under the loan, these bases can’t be thrown in as part of the consideration,” he said. No Economic Loss To Britain “I wouldn't suggest it if it involved an economic loss for Britain. But most of them are located on otherwise barren islands and are of no commercial or military value to Britain or the empire.” Magnuson may have an opportunity to present his argument formally on capitol hill within a few* weeks. Mr. Truman told the newsmen he plans to send congress a special message on the British loan shortly after his message next Monday combining budget requirements with his views on the state of the union. Meanwhile, it appeared possible the American plan for exclusive retention of the islands it needs, might stir a controversy •t London over whether it constitutes another big-pow’er cutback of UNO’s ultimate authority. ADA, OKLAHOMA, WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 16,1946 Torch Deaths Big Mystery May Involve Intra-Army Scandal in Berlin By RICHARD A. O’REGAN FRANKFURT, Germany, Jan., 16, CP)—The 10-day-old investigation into the mysterious torch murder of three U. S. military government officers at Passau has been classified as “top secret.” A high officer closely associated with the case sail} he was unable to explain why reports on the slaying flowing into theater headquarters had been given the ! U. S. army’s highest security ; classification. Rumors circulated that an ar-| rest had been made, but high officers refused to comment. Instead, the secrecy surrounding the case was intensified. 1 One officer unofficially volunteered the statement that he believed the case might be an “intra-army scandal.” A report said an American officer was under suspicion. Army investigators who have wrapped the entire case I such secrecy that so far not even the names and hometowrns of the victims have been announced officially. How’ever, they have been unofficially identified as Maj. Everett S. Cofran of Washington, D. C., Capt. Adrain I. Wesseler of New Rochelle, N. Y., and Lt. Stanley Rosewater of Omaha, Neb.

White Hoise Slaying Out No Flans Yet for Fresident To Intervene in Packinghouse Worker Strike By The Associated Press WASHINGTON, Jan. 16 UP)-As packinghouse workers throughout the nation went on strike today a presidential aide said there were no plans for direct White . ouse action. But Edgar L. Warren, chief of the Federal Conciliation service, told reporters appointment of a fact-finding board in the meat strike was under consideration. Such boards have been appointed in other wage cases either by the president or the secretary of labor. Charles G. Ross, presidential press secretary, was questioned at his news conference about the meat strike and the scheduled re-sumption^fwafie talks in the steel dispWi^Mhe White House his afternoon. Ross said he had no comment on a telegram sent by Secretary of Labor Schwellenbach to the companies and the heads of the AFL and CIO unions involved in the meat strike, in which a postponement of the strike and a resumption of collective bargaining here tomorrow were requested. “Are there any plans for White House action in the meat case?” Ross was then asked. “No,” he replied. Schwellenbach’s telegram said in part “after consultation with the president of the United States, I invite you to come here Thursday to continue your negotiations and to confer with me, and I urge you meanwhile to postpone the work stoppage in the conviction that a settlement can be reached.”  ic-- Boss of Emperor's Purse Forced Out Household Minister Has To Go Under MacArthur^ Political Purge Order TOKYO, Jan. 16.—CP)—General MacArthur^ political purge directive today forced the resignation of Sotaro Ishiwata, imperial household minister who controlled the emperor’s purse.

Greater returns for amount invested—Ada News Classified Ads WASHINGTON. Jan., 16. UP— The uncertain life of the present draft law' posed a new complication today in the already diffi-cult task of finding dcmobiliza-! tion replacements for the army. j Influential members of the house military committee disclosed that they are ready to let selective service die on May 15 —the day the existing law is to expire unless congress again extends it. * The army has been relying largely upon the draft for recruits to replace the clamoring long-service GI S overseas, but in recent months, it has been falling short of meeting the average monthly induction requirements of 50,000 men. Could Be Abrupt Change Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower told demobilization - conscious lawmakers yesterday the war department has ordered that by June 30 all men with two years of service or 40 points must be out of the army or on their way out. Abrupt termination of the draft law on May 15 would eliminate the major source of replacements for those in later release categories, leaving them dependent on the success of the regular army’s enlistment program. The reason members of the house military committee are ready to let the draft law die is that they hope thereby to salvage the bogged - down universal training legislation requested by President Truman. Trained Reserve Is Goal Although Mr. Truman’s military training proposals preclude use of trainees as overseas replacements, the house members told a reporter they believe the well - trained reserve created by the program would reduce necessity for the large standing army now planned. Meanwhile three senators tackled the task of finding some w'ay to speed the return to civilian life of some 2,000,000 fed - up servicemen w'ho have been chorusing “we want to go home.” Apparently unconvinced by demobilization data from Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, army chief of staff, the three-memher senate inquiry group requested I further information today from I acting secretary of war Kenneth C. Royal I. “Our only purpose is to try and clarify this entire situation.” Senator Edwin C. Johnson (D-Colo.) chairman of the special I military affairs subcommittee, I said in an interview’. "We are i w ide open for facts but we want to talk cold turkey and put everything on top of the table. We are not trying to fry anybody | but we do have some questions.” NO MORE MASS MEETINGS IN I ETO WITHOUT PERMISSION I FRANKFURT. Germany. Jan. I 16.—IBP»—Gen. Joseph T.

Jan. 16.-l.TL-A nationwide packinghouse workers strike involving 268.000 workers, threatening a meatless diet for the nation, began today but union leaders agreed to confer tomorrow in Washington with Secretary of Labor Schwellenbach in government efforts to j halt the walkout. Lewis J. Clark, president of the CIO United Packinghouse i Workers Union, said he and the union’s general counsel, Ralph Helstein. would go to Washington. Clark s spokesman, however, said the strike was in full force with all its 193,000 members out in 140 plants across the nation. j Previously Earl W. Jimerson, president, and Patrick E. Gorman. secretary of the AFL amalgamated meat cutters and butcher workmen, proposed to the CIO that both unions heed the last I minute plea by Schwellenbach and ‘ postpone continuation” of . the strike. Appeal Came Too Late I The AFL pointed out, however, that Schw’ellenbach’s appeal last night caffle too late to avert the I strike which had been called for midnight and began promptly, (in some instances even before the ; deadline. There was no immediate estimate from the AFL as to how many of its members actually were out but 75,000 were involv-ed. 45,000 today, and 30.000 more later. Another 60.000 AFL members in the retail trade were not directly involved. Spokesman for major packing companies made these estimates today of the number out on strike nationally: Armour and Company, 35.000: Cudahy, 10.000 Wilson and Company. 9,400; Swift and Company, 15,000 to 16,-800. The CIO spokesman said struck plants included those of Armour, Cudahy, Sw’ift, Wilson, and five smaller concerns. Morrell. King-an and Company. Cudahy Brothers Rath Packing and Tobin Packing Companies. Conciliators Made Bld George A. Eastwood, president of Armour and Company, said that government conciliators who made desperate efforts here this w eek to av ert the strike had proposed that the government pay 30 to 35 cents a hundredweight °n dressed meat purchased by the government and that ceiling prices on civilian meats be rais* ^ 2 cents a hundredweight. Stating the proposal was "in J «*nse recognition of the fact that the industry cannet raise wages unless the added expense is recovered through the medium of higher ceiling prices on meat,” Eastwood - said Armour’s had found it necessary to reject the proposal. He said Armour’s calculation* indicated the plan would provide only enough money to enable a wage increase of 4 cents an hour. whereas the unions demanded 25 cents or IT’ ? cents immediately and negotiation on the other lh cents. Hog Receipts Drop Fast An early indication of the effect* of the strike was the report from 12 leading midwest livestock markets that hog receipts today totalled only 17.700, compared with 118.849 in the same markets a W'eek ago. Livestock producers for days have been sharply calculating their shipments to market in the face of the approaching strike.
