Dewey Asks Early Settlement
Of All Lend-Lease Oblgaions
World War I Debts
By The Associated Press
NEW YORK, June 7-Gov. Thomas
E. Dewey called tonight for cancella-
tion of World War I debts and early
settlement of lend-lease obligations
arising out of this war.
He also urged, in a speech prepared
for a War Finance Committee dinner,
that the United States take the lead
in reducing tariffs and accept the
May Be, Givent
liaise in Salary
Endorsement by the American Ju-
dicature Society of salary increases
for federal judges now pending in
Congress was announced today by
George E. Brand of Detroit, chair-
man of the Society's board.
Increases of $5,000 a year for the
entire federal judiciary, including dis-
trict and circuit judges and the justi-
ces of the Supreme Court, are pro-
posed in bills introduced in the House
by Rep. Hobbs (D., Ala.) and in the
Senate by Sen. Wagner (D., N. Y.)
The Hobbs bill is soon to come up
for consideration before a subcommit-
tee of the -House Judiciary commit-
Society's Support Unanimous
The announcement of the Ameri-
can Judicature Society's support fol-
lowed a nearly unanimous vote of
the Society's officers and directors,
representing every state in the Un-
ion. The society itself is composed of
6,000 lawyers and judges in all parts
of the country, organized to promote
the efficient administration of jus-
"A dozen states," said Mr. Brand,
"pay their state supreme court judges
more than the federal district judges
are paid, and in nearly as many states
there are trial judges in the state
courts receiving more than the $10,-
000 a year drawn by the federal dis-
Salaries Taxed Both Ways
"Since the present salary scale was
established in 1926 the purchasing
power of the dollar has greatly de-
creased and the salaries of judges
have been subjected to both federal
and state income taxes. The judges
have had no way to offset these dras-
tic reductions in actual compensa-
tion, except in some instances by ac-
eeptance outside employment as
writers and teachers, and good judges
have resigned because they could no
longer afford to remain on the fed-
Bretton Woods proposals, despite
"imperfections," as a step toward
solving postwar economic problems.
Meats Can't Be Paid
"The 25-year-old foreign govern-
ment debts to the United State, aris-
ing from World War I will never be
paid because they cannot be paid,"
Dewey said. "We should be honest
and intelligent enough to say so offi-
cially and cancel them.
"Along with this should go an im-
mediate repeal of the Johnson Act,
which forbids private loans to gov-
ernments and nations now in default
on these debts."
Urging that efforts begin "at once"
to settle Lend-Lease obligations, the
1944 Republican Presidential candi-
date said "It may well be that we
shall have to cancel a major part of
the financial obligations," adding:
Must Eliminate Trade Barriers
"We are entitled to ask in return
that our partners shall fully live up
to the other part of their obligations
by eliminating barriers to commerce
and promoting the bettermen of
world-wide economic and social rela-
tions, as well as the cause of free-
dom of the individual, for which this
war is being fought."
Dewey. said the United States not
only hould lower its tariffs but also
should "initiate a world conference
for general tariff reductions" and
should seek, with Great Britain, "the
long-term stabilization of the all-
important, dollar-sterling rate."
"We must begin now to pick up at.
least part of the pieces from the
wrecked London economic confer-
ence of 1933," he said.

By The Associated Press
PEARL HARBOR, June 7-Jap-
anese Navy officials still may be
muttering things not fit for print
about a certain American submar-
ine- which potted their cargo and
warships right among a hotbed of
their own patrol boats.
This American boat, which cannot
now be named, moved out of port
when Japanese submarines were at
the height of their activity, and
Pacific waters were whipped by the
screws of enemy warships and mer-
The sub headed toward a harbor
which was bottlenecked by a small
channel and prepared to give the
enemy a bad time. The Japanese
were firmly entrenched in the area
and were busy putting in cargo and
troopships. There was no way to
get inside the carefully guarded
harbor. It was like trying to shoot
ducks through a fence.
At dawn the sub commander de-
cided on a daring and delicate plan.
While the Jap patrol ship made a
wide sweep, the sub moved into crys-
tal clear water, between it and the
Suddenly, over the horizon, ap-
peared a string of Japanese ships in
convoy. They were making for the
harbor channel. The convoy hove
into range and the American sub
let go. A Japanese destroyer blew
up and another heeled over, badly
hit. With depth charges pounding
the waters all around, the command-
er took the sub to a precarious safety,
The next day the determined
submarine skipper was back on the
job in dangerous waters. The pa-
trol ship was back again tco, this
time with a couple of friends. One
of them was a swift torpedo boat
which covered the waters like a
bloodhound. Another convoy ap-
proached. The patrol craft vainly
tried to shepherd the convoy into
the channel, then slammed its tor-
pedoes away. Two cargo ships
blossomed into flame and a small
warship exploded in a blaze of

Cuts Off Water
City Employees Agree
To Accept Arbitration
YPSILANTI, Mich., June 7-V)-
A seven-hour strike today of some 90
city employes ended before the in-
terruption of gas, water and sewage
service caused hardship.
Settlement of the strike was ar-
ranged by Robert Lomasney, con-
ciliator for the State Labor Media-
The strikers, members of Local
269, State, County and Municipal
Workers of America (CIO), returned
to the jobs so that their dispute 'could
be studied by an impartial five-man
The workers, whose walkout tied up
the city-operated gas plant and other
community service, demanded a 10-
cent an hour wage increase, closed
shop and the checkoff of union dues
system. Lomasney said the board
probably would make its recommend-
ation to the city council tomorrow,
The gas supply to industrial plants
was cut off during the strike, city
officials intending to conserve the
gas to maintain service to house-
holders. None of the plants were
shut down, although spokesmen said
continuation of the strike would have
forced the plants to close.
