Showdown on





Rubber Plant
Issue Grows
More Tense
Jeffers Asserts He or
Patterson Must Quit;
Truman Plans Probe
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, April 23.-Rubber
Director William M. Jeffers is "boil-
ing mad," close associates said to-
night, and is resolved that the new
flareup between him and Undersec-
retary of War Robert P. Patterson
must end in a real showdown-his
resignation or Patterson's.
Jeffers, described by one 'of his
aides "the maddest Irishman in all
the United States," was enroute to
Baton Rouge, La., this evening to in-
spect a new synthetic rubber plant.
He left behind a flurry of official ac-
tivity stirred up by ~harges attribute4
to Patterson that the emphasis of
synthetic rubber 'was -hurting the
Allied air offensive by curtailing
aviation gasoline,
The Union Pacific president felt
he had been accused by Patterson of
sabotaging the war effort by his in-
sistence on priority for the rubber
program, a reliable source In his of-
fice disclosed. This informant; who
cannot be further identified, quoted
Jeffers as telling 'associates that
when the investigation demanded by
him ha. settled the issue, either he
or Patterson should quit Washington.
Jeffers was said to"have described
the Patterson statement as "the most
violent and unprovoked attack which
a public servant has iver had to sus-
tain." Publicly he demanded an in-
ve~lg'tlo t ge 'a te "true' fact s."Y
Patterson'sloffice yesterday quted
the Undersecretar as declaring the
all-out air assault on Nazi'Europe
this summer might be wealkened'ser-
iously by theaviation gasolineshort-
age, adding that some ,army planes
had been grounded already. Patter-
son, in his demands for more' avia-
tion gasoline equipment," is being
backed by Secretary" 'of Interior
Chairman Truman (Dem.-Mo.) of
the Senate War Investigating con-
mittee announced anqinjilr y into the
controversy today He said the com-
mittee will hear testimony next
Tuesday from chairman Donald M.
Nelson.of the ,WarProductnBoard.

Marines Wonder What's in a Name


Ace Wants To
Go to Tokyo
Joe Foss Has Shot
Down 26 Jap Planes
WASHINGTON, April 23.-()-
America's ace pilot in this war-
Marine Capt. Joe Foss who shot down
26 Japanese planes in the battle of
Guadalcanal-wants to go back to
the Pacific "to pay a short visit to
"Then," said the one-time South
Dakota farm lad who used to whet
his marksmanship by shooting
skunks, "maybe we could have a
short talk about what happened to
the Doolittle pilots who fell into
Japanese hands after the raid on To-
kyo more than a year ago."
Foss met reporters today at a press
conference and made no effort to
hide his feelings over the execution
of some of those fliers.
But the strapping pilot, whose rec-
ord of enemy planes downe'd exactly
equals that of Capt. Eddie Ricken-
backer in the first world war, won't
have his wish fulfilled at once. He is
to make a tour of pre-filght schools
and naval training stations around
the country after a short leave.
The Sphinx picnic will be at 3
p.m. Sunday. The group will meet
at the Geddes Street entrance to
the Arboretum.

opportunities for educators, social
workers, and group leaders to study

of the faculty committee of the
camp, said.

chairmanned by Paul Wingate, '43,
and Helen Kressbach, '44, will se-

organizations to man twenty-five
campus and downtown posts from
18 a.m. till 4 p.m. next Friday.
The boys attending this camp are
chosen without regard to race or
religion by social agencies in metro-
politan areas of Detroit.
