Vol. Xxx no. It wimm merry-60-Roundh it my Liaison or l surplus property Board Rives states of by generals a a packing rouses congressional ire Bilbo rises Early of necessity. Washington a state and local government purchasers Are getting ready to make a Long list of charge yes against Stuart Syminton a surplus property Board. They claim that the Board has completely ignored the Legal preference states and cities Are supposed to receive in the Sale of surplus goods. According to the surplus prop erty act agencies of the Federal government Are to have the first Chance to buy surplus military goods with state county and municipal governments offered the next Chance. It. Actually however the purchasing agents for local and state governments complain that they Are being by passed wherever possible. A Senate committee investigator checked at fort Meade last week to discover that a Fleet of used army trucks was being sold to dealers Only without state or local representatives being Given even an invitation to bid. One of the most flagrant cases is reported at fort Bragg n. A. Where the surplus property Board j okayed an army move to sell tire manufacturers several acres of used truck tires at $30 per ton. The tires were declared class cd by the army suitable for repair for civilian use. % however the state of North 9 Carolina heard about the Deal. Like Many other states North Carolina has had to delay considerable Road work because it could not get tires to equip state vehicles. So a tire specialist was sent Over to examine the tires at fort Bragg and found that they would be an excellent buy for state use. He was not permitted to buy any of them however. Instead car loads have been going out at t$30 a ton to u. S. Rubber company and other rubber manufacturers. Who Are re Selling them at $40 per ton to Independent tire repair companies. Once repaired these tires Are put on the Market at ceiling prices for used tires. �?�0 while North Carolina la liable w to get any of mime tire to Carload of them was delivered Only last week to the Goodrich Agency in Raleigh the state Capitol for repair and re Sale at ceiling prices. State agents were told also by i fort Bragg s Salvage officer capt. J v. V. Jones that 2,000 class c tires repairable for army use recently have been declared sur-1 plus. So far states and cities have not been permitted to bid on these i army discharges representative Lyndon Johnson i of Texas is preparing to blast the i army regarding the following Point in the muddled discharge situation the army a announcement that men with 45 Points or More will j not be sent to the Pacific Means that More than 2,000.000 men will neither be sent overseas nor released. In other words men with Between 45 to 80 pouts will have to Mark time in this country do a ing nothing. Another blast that congressmen plan to launch against the army is illustrated by the remark of maj. I a Gen. Elwood r. Quesada of air Force counterintelligence.

Sch Wellenbach became the government s labor Quot Bossy under the department s reorganization. He held a presidential Grant of heed the request. World peace the Only Safe answer is one based on facts and not on fancies. This is that peace demands that the Mediterranean be maintained As an International waterway with free passage for All nations. Any conflict Over con must precipitate upheaval. America Britain and Russia a recognize that three of you be discharged and keeping 25. If i kept Only five officers i d have to go Back to my permanent rank of in other words a general cannot be a general unless he has a Large number of men to command. The More men discharged from the army the less justifies under those terms Hirohito remains on his throne but takes orders from Gen. Douglas Macarthur. No Promise was made that he would not be tried for waterings. The japanese people Are to decide what form of government they want. Some senators who previously lion for generals. So with an All i111 called for Hirohito s trial As a Honshu Island Japan and also the famous Mountain that the japanese people worship As a god Fiji Ama.

Higashi Kuni himself said of Shigemitsu that Quot he was foreign minister during the War and now we Are launched in building a new shoulders. They have encountered Many difficult problems but have solved them with an Eye to maintaining the Alliance which led them to Victory. Therefore it would be foolish of observers to create a bugbear out of the Mediterranean situation although we need t Overlook the potential dangers Konoye Obata and Ogata the sources recalled also had been associated with the War minded segments of the japanese government since 1937, Konoye As two time Premier. Meanwhile the american embassy residence got Busy suddenly making preparations for the it time record of 1,600 generals you can understand Why discharges move slowly. Picketing Bilbo Edward Bykowski discharged army Veteran who picketed the War criminal said they had not renewed these demands publicly because of the delicacy of occupation operations. This Factor caused Russell to delay his speech a week. The georgian said that by treat weather to being Cloudy we were unable to see this Mountain. The Mouth of the Bay has a distance of ten Miles across at which we had to enter through. We entered inside of the Bay with no trouble.
