Talk Planned
By Churchill
Expected To Prepare
British, Americans
For Coning Assault
By The Associated Press
LONDON, March 25.-Prime Min-
ister Churchill is expected to deliver
a pre-invasion fight talk in his ad-
dress Sunday over a British-Ameri-
can radio hook-up, using the full
scope of his oratorical gifts to pre-
pare the British and American people
for the forthcoming grand assault
and to dispel any doubt regarding the
basic unity of the United Nations.
The broadcast is scheduled for 9
P.m. London time, which is 4 p.m.
Eastern War Time.
(The speech will be carried on all
networks in the United States.)
The British Broadcasting Com-
pany said Churchill would broadcast
whether or not London was subject-
ed to an air raid during the speech,
pointing out that British stations do
not go off the air during raids.
Churchill seldom uses the radio to
break news-usually reserving that
for appearances before Parliament-
and it seems logical to expect that
his broadcast will be a pep talk to re-
assure the American people of Bri-
tain's determination to fight with all
her resources to the final defeat of
Japan if Germany collapses first.

Men Under 25 To
Be Reviewed First
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, March 25-Speed-
ed-up draft machinery pushed men
25 and under closer to Army service
tonight, but it meant no lessening of
the induction pace for eligibles be-
yond that age.
Local boards were directed to re-
view younger men first, but draft
officials said men over 25 who have
any sort of occupational deferments
will move right along on the Selective
Service assembly line when that de-
ferment expires.
Reconsideration for All
Some of them undoubtedly will be
given new deferments, especially
those in agriculture where irreplace-
able men are protected by law. But
all will be considered anew when
their present deferments expire.
Manpower Chairman Paul V. Mc-
Nutt today gave government agencies
until March 29 to assemble informa-
tion on the deferment needs of the
industries under their jurisdiction to
set in motion the call-up of young
workers. The requests will be con-
sidered by representatives of the War
Production Board, Army, Navy, Se-
lective Service, Office of Defense

Transportation and other
agencies for manpower.

Shepherd, who was an ad-

China. He said that fears
that China would lose her
freedom from outside na-

be a warrior-statesman and
leader. "The Generalis-

voting his whole life to the
cause of national unity of
China and thus met the
gratest test of his day.
Principles for which he is
striving are a strong inde-
