The Et Worth Rodeo starts Friday and the committee will be on hand for the opening performance. Most of the rodeo stars who usually apear at the Ada Rodeo perform at Ft Worth at that big event New acts and features will be presented rodeo fans this year. One of the performance that will probably attract more attention than any other will be Quarter horse races. *- Moving Poy for Bikini Chieftain FIVE CENTS THE COPT Make Bid For L. D.

The military committee meets then to pass on a bill to transfer veterans’ job rights functions from selective service to the United States employment service. The measure could have a powerful influence on draft extension legislation because its enactment would remove any argument that selective service must be continued if only to safeguard the rights of returned ser-v,«*rnen to their pre-war jobs. With the draft act due to expire' in little more than two months, the senate committee is expected to begin charting a definite course in the next ten days. Across the capitol, meanwhile. it appeared that a senate vote in the house military committee might go a long way toward deciding the fate of universal military training legislation. Both supporters and opponents claimed a majority of one vote on the basis of private surveys among the 27 committee members. While Rep. Joseph W.

The daily average of applicants at the main Tokyo emplov-ment office reached 800, which is 16 times greater than during the war and four times the usual figure in 1936, the agency said. Colonels and other officers; often in old uniforms stripped of rank, line up daily. No generals have shown up yet, Kyodo reported. Meanwhile, a last-minute rush of buying was underway as Jap-anese attempted to beat the March I deadline for turning la all their yen. which they will be allowed to withdraw in restricted quantities.
