CIO-UAW Meeting Faces Major Issues
Jackson, Goering In Angry Clash Over Testimony
By DANIEL DELUCE
NUERNBERG, Mar., 22, GPU-Justice Robert H. Jackson, chief L. S. prosecutor, interviewed angrily today to choke off Hermann Goenng's praise of Adolf Hitler with a warning to the international military tribunal that the war crimes trial was liable to drag on into August.
Th® scowling former reichs-marshal returned to the prisoners’ dock at 10:57 a. rn. after eight days on the witness stand in his own defense.
Interrupting in a rasping voice when the defendant again attempted to revyw “my relations w ith the fuehrer,” Jackson declared: “This subject has been ex
hausted—the matter of time is grave.”
On the basis of scores of witnesses already granted the remaining 20 defendants in the dock. Jackson said it appeared probable the trial would extend into August.
A bitter scene developed as Gen. R. A. Rudenko, chief Soviet prosecutor, concluded his interrogation demanding to know if Goering would admit he “was the second man in the murder of million5 of innocent people.”
“No,” shouted Goering, “because I didn’t know about them or cause them. Millions of Germans did not know about them either. *
Almost snarling, Goering explained that he collaborated in all the Hiterlite policies because:
“I had to set an example of allegiance for the simple soldier. That sort of allegiance to a supreme leader occurs elsewhere and I don’t think I need be any clearer as to what I mean.”

By FEUX B. WOLD
CITX, n- J*. Mar., 22, UPI—Union politics and dues commanded the attention today of the CIO United Auto Workers union on the eve of its 10th convention.
On one hand was the potential battle between R. J. Thomas and Walter P. Reuther for the union presidency—with Thomas, incumbent since 1938, bluntly inviting Reuther, UAW vice-president, to enter the contest.
At the same time a proposal to double the membership dues, from $l a month to $2. formally was placed before the auto union oy its veteran Secretary-Treasur-er, George F. Addes.
Income Not Enough Addes, asserting in his annual report that “drastic action cannot be put off any longer/' said the union’s “ordinary income” had not been sufficient to meet expenditures since July of 1943. He had previously proposed a dues boost to $1.50.

Kline said a large number of small, independent slaughter houses had been established in eastern states which have been licensed by the U. S. department of agriculture.

SHANGHAI, March 22, _
pie Japanese grand imperial headquarters and the war ministry were charged with responsibility for Japan’s enemy airmen’s jaw in a statement read today at the trial of four Japanese chara-fd with the death of three Doo-little fliers.
These- two agencies “installed enactment of this law” and made !t “retroactive to fit it to past offense, said a statement of Mayor Itsuro Hata, who was prosecutor at the court martial which sentenced eight Doolittle airmen to die before a firing squad. Five of the Americans were reprieved.
American prosecutors said they were convinced that Hata’s statement and other evidence would be the basis for indictments against prominent members of the Japanese military re-fime responsible for promulgating the law, which was considered a blanket go-ahead for the execution of all enemy fliers.*
Rata died of ulcers in Tokyo early this year. He had sent his statement voluntarily to allied headquarters when he learned he was to be arrested.

Members who usually can tell the turn in the house group said that barring a change in sentiment an extension of not more than nine months, or until March I at the outside, is the best bet. Many said the continuation might be even shorter.

Walker and Hensley Into Freeholder Board Filing; Registration Ends Tonight
NEW YORK, March 22.—^— Iran, which has protested to the United Nations the presence of Russian troops on its oil-rich territory, formally aligned itself with the United States today in opposing a Soviet request that the meeting of the 11-nation security council be delayed 16 days.
Such postponement — which would set back the opening meeting from next Monday to April IO—would “inevitably result in increased harm to the interests of Iran,” Hussein Ala, Iranian ambassador, said in a letter to Trygve Lie, UNO secretary general.
Unanimous agreement by tho members of the security council is needed to postpone the meeting, and opposition to the delay already has been voiced by representatives of China, Australia and Great Britain. Iran is not a member of the security council.
Letter Asks Prompt Action Hussein Ala’s letter, released here last night by UNO officials, said the Iranian government hoped that consideration of its case against the Soviqjt Union “will not be delayed.”
“At the conference in London decision was postponed upon the meri^ of the earlier dispute pending negotiation bewteen the parties,” the letter said and added:
'These negotiations have failed. Meanwhile, March 2, the date fixed by the Tripartite treaty, has passed and the Soviet troops have not been withdrawn.
