WASHINGTON, Dec. 9-(0)- A
grimly war-conscioucs Congress today
took the initial step toward permitting
the nation's armed forces-selectees
as well as regulars-to fight in any
part of the world,
The Senate and House Military
Committees approved legislation to
eliminate the present teritorial re-
strictions, and to permit retention in
service of all fighting forces for the
duration of the war. Both steps were
requested by the War Department.
Brig. Gen. Lewis B. Hershey, Na-
6ional Selective Service Director, said
in Chicago there is a "strong possibil-
ity" tlat Congress will lower the mini-
mum draft age from 21 to 18 and that
men deferred because they were 28 or
over may be called up.
He reported reclassifying of selec-
tees deferred because of occupation
was already under consideration and
that reclassifying of men deferred be-
cause of dependents may be taken up
Meanwhile the House completed
and sent to President Roosevelt's desk
a bill to freeze naval enlistments for
six months beyond the duration of
Chairnan May (Dem.-Ky.) of the
House Military Committee said the
new measure, relating to overseas ser-
vice, would be brought to the House
floor tomorrow, and its passage
sought immediately under suspension
It would nullify two provisions of
the Selective Service Act, now pre-
venting use of selectees outside the
Western Hemisphere or their reten-
tion in service beyond 30 months.
Subject of weeks of acrimonious
argument during movement of the
Selective Service bill through Con-
gress,.the two changes were approved
unanimously by the Committee after
but little more than two hours' study.

Working with a purposeful swift-

war, a student group here has al-
eady responded to the needs of the
country during the emergency.
The group, as yet unnamed and
possessing no titles, has risen spon-
taneously to join in a drive with the
local Salvation Army, Red Cross and
Friends Service Committee to supply
needy civilians with plenty of warm
Stating the purpose of this newly
formed organization, a spokesman for
them pointed out that regardless of
what students' beliefs were before
the war, here was something they
could all work for.
Opposing the legendary "ivory tow-'
er" attitude, these students believe in
"constructive aid to the country now,
instead of the sort of hysteria ex-
pressed in the last war."
The clothing, which is being col-
lected by numerous campus groups
and independent students, and which
will be distributed by the three above
mentioned organizations, will be col-
lected by 12 noon this Saturday. It
will be distributed in time for Christ-

Spirited Cooperation Is Keynote
For Christmas Bureau Aetivities
By CLAYTON DICKEY
The Christmas Bureau, now in its I
second week of existence, has already
received the enthusiastic response of
the University and the community,
Mrs. Arthur W. Bromage, of the
publicity committee, announced yes-I
Among the 24 city organizations
which have pledged cooperation with
the Bureau are women's clubs,'
church and civic groups and other
social welfare agencies.
The University organizations co-
operating with the Bureau include
the Residence Halls, Panhellenic As-
sociation and the League.
The League will be the first Uni-
versity group to begin its program
of Christmas giving under the Bu-
reau's guidance. A large decorated
tree will be placed in the lobby Sat-
urday. Students and faculty mem-
bers are urged to place under the
tree packages of toys, clothing or
other gifts, which will be distributed
among the children at University
The Christmas Bureau was organ-
ized to provide a clearing house for
Yuletide charity so as to avoid dupli-
cation and to bring about a more
equitable distribution of aid. Em-
phasizing the importance of family
solidarity, the Bureau endeavors to
arrange donations so that parents can
play the role of giver, thus perform-
ing their normal functions in family

will speak on employment in the Bu-

His remarks will be addressed par-
ticularly to members of the senior
class of the Law School, but all who
are interested will be welcome. tr.
Bugas will give special "attention to
business and legal problems with
which the Bureau must deal in the
course of its investigation.
The opportunity for employment is
of interest to anyone considering in-
vestigational work. It does not in-
volve the trial of law suits, but it
does include the assembling of evi-

"This is an old trick of propaganda,
which has been used innumerable
times by the Nazis," the President
said. "The purposes of such fan-

NWASIHINGTON, Dec. 9.-(IP)-Bit-
ter criticism of the Arm and Navy
defenders of Hawaii; coupled with a
threatened demand for court-martial
proceedings against the top-ranking
officers involved, flared in the House
today but brought a storm of rebuke
on the heads of the critics.
Representative Dingell D. -Mich)
touched 'off the fir'eworks when he
announced his intention to demand!
the courtmartials to "determine' the
guilt or innocence in the matter of
the Hawaiian Air Forces."
Specifically mentioned by Dingell
for courtmartial were Admiral Hus-
band E. Kimmel, Commander-in-
Chief of the Pacific Fleet; Lt. Gen.
Lester C. Short, Commanding the
Hawaiian department of the Army;
Maj. Gen. H. H. Arnold, deputy chief
of staff for air; Maj. Gen. George
H. Brett, chief of the Army Air Corps
and Maj. Gen. Fred L. Martin, chief
of the Hawaiian Air Force.
Chairman Vinson (D.-Ga.) of the
House Naval Committee denounced
Dingell's action a short time later
as "nothing but a cheap effort to
get newspaper publicity."

President Roosevelt. Peru already had
frozen Japanese funds, and Bolivia
