Japs Lose Twi
Ships as U.S.
Associated Press Correspondent
NEW YORK.- The Battle of the
Solomons, one phase apparently end-
ed with the reported Japanese aban-
donment of Guadalcanal, has cost
the Nipponese almost twice as many
naval and merchant vessels as it has
the United States, an unofficial tabu-
i lation of Navy announcements re-
vealed recently.
The Japs lost a total of 57 naval
and merchant ships sunk, compared
to United States losses, reported to
! date, of only 29 vessels.
Actual sinkings, however, do not
reveal the full cost of the battle to
Japan. More than 100 Nipponese ships
were damaged, many of them requir-
ing weeks to repair. An additional
seven vessels were listed by the U.S.
Navy as "probably" sunk.
Hard-hitting U.S. Navy surface
craft played a major role in running
up the toll of Jap losses. An unofficial
count showed the surface craft sank'
23 Jap ships, "probably" sank two
others and damaged 12 others in six
months of the.campaign.
American airmen-flying carrier-
based and land-based planes-de-
stroyed 11 vessels and damaged 71
others. The airmen were credited with
"probably" sinking three other ships.
Warships, airplanes, and artillery
based on Guadalcanal,-working in
combination - were credited with
sinking 23 enemy ships and damaging
seven. The accurate aim' of one land-

LANSING, Feb. 10.- (4)- A legis-
lative attack on farm labor shortages#
was proposed today by Senator Arthur1
E. Wood, Republican, Detroit, who,
submitted a bill to permit the use of l
prison labor on farms.

H uge Park Plan
Approved for
Detroit Area
LANSING, Feb. 10.- (A"P)- The
State Conservation Commission today
gave a go-ahead signal to a $6,000,000
recreation project, recommended by
Governor Kelly to provide park and
hunting facilities for southeastern
Michigan and principally the Detroit
metropolitan area.
The commission voted to contribute
$200,000 annually to match an ex-
pected yearly $1,000,000 appropria-
tion from the state general fund over
a five-year period. The funds will be
used to purchase upwards of 100,000
acres of mainly rugged, wilderness
terrain stretching in a semi-circle
from Jackson County on the west to
eastern Oakland County.
Governor Kelly was represented as
approving an appropriation of $1,000,-
000 annually from the general fund
for the project which he had recom-
mended in his inaugural message. At
that time he specified that the project
should" be supervised by a special leg-
islative committee, appointment of
which is expected to follow close upon
today's action by the commission.
In agreeing to release $200,000 from
its closely-guarded game protection
fund, the conmission emphasized
that its contribution must be ear-
marked for hunting lands only. Mem-
bers agreed that it would be difficult
to keep game areas stocked in the
well populated sections included in
the project, but said the program
would serve its purpose if it afforded
"a shot or two" for thousands of
metropolitan hunters who otherwise
must travel far north for their sport.
P. T. Hoffmaster, state conservation
director, said the project was intended
currently to meet a recreational prob-
lem which would arise for urban resi-
dents because of no transportation.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 10.--(P)-The
Office of War Information has pre-

House Adopts Bill to Abolish

Senate Opens Debate on Joint Resolution

ercise the franchise. The measure
was scheduled for a vote tomorrow.
As it passed the House, the bill
would create a three-member State
Highway Board, appointed by the
Governor, which would appoint a
highway director. That office would
be roughly similar 'to the highway
commissionership which the measure'
seeks to abolish.
An amendment attached to it would
give to the Auditor General the duty
of scrutinizing all financial transac-
tions of the Highway Department,
and make a quarterly and year-end
accounting of income and expendi-
Rep. Clark J. Adams, Pontiac Dem-
ocrat, accused the Republicans of
resorting to "political trickery" in in-
serting in the bill an appropriation
feature which would prevent oppo-
nents from seeking to invalidate it
by filing petitions for a referendum
on the issue.
Rep. John P. Espie, Eagle Republi-
can, gave tart reply to Democratic
contentions his party was wrongfully
depriving the people of the right to
pick the head of that department.
Describing nominating conventions at
which, he said, "three or four" leaders
invariably dictated to whom nomina-
tions would go, Espie declared:
"The people nominate and elect
them? Oh, hell!"

Social Security
Boost is Asked
Clients Would Receive
Old Age Help Increase
LANSING, Feb. 10.- (/P)- Gover-
nor Kelly asked the State Adminis-
trative Board today to boost monthly
payments to Social Security clients
in Michigan, including an increase in
old age assistance grants from a state
average of $23 to $27.50 a month.
The board will be asked to divert
funds available to pay the increases
for the remainder of the fiscal year
ending June 30, and there was every
reason to expect it would act favor-
ably next Tuesday. The increases
would be immediately effective.
Kelly, announcing he had obtained
the approval of the board's Finance
Committee and of the House and
Senate Appropriations Committees,
declared, "I can't say that the legis-
lature will continue that increase for'
the next two years, but I think they
are disposed to carry it on, or do even

The Senate previously had passed
the bill in form to earmark $10,000,-
