Ball Asks That

WASHINGTON, Dec. 30.--()-
Senator Ball (Rep., Minn.) declared
today that there should be a law to
back the government's wartime labor
policy and that it should apply to
James C. Petrillo the same as Sewell
The senator supported President,
Roosevelt's statement in seizing
Montgomery Ward stores Thursday
that what the President called the
firm's "consistent and willful defi-
ance" of War Labor Board decisions
had threatened employer - worker
confidence in the agency's machinery
for settling labor disputes. Avery is
board chairman of Ward.
But James C. Petrillo and the
American Federation of Musicians,
which he heads, also have defied the
board and jeopardized confidence in
it, Ball said in a statement.
Proposing establishment of a "le-
gal basis for action against union
defiance," he added:
"A fundamental principle of dem-
ocracy is that its rules and laws
apply equally to all. I do not believe
that is true at present as regards
enforcement of WLB directives."

Ward Plants Calm
Over New Year's
CHICAGO, Dec. 30.-(/P)-A New
Year's holiday calm settled over
Montgomery Ward and Company
The Army, which seized company
properties in seven cities Thursday
under Presidential order consolidated
its position by having office facilities
installed. The company stood on its
refusal, to recognize validity of the
seizure, apparently awaiting federal


court determination of the issues.
Await Army Action
The union involved in the labor
dispute awaited Army action toward
carrying out War Labor Board direc-
tives for maintenance of union mem-
bership, wage increase with back pay
and seniority. It was Ward's refusal
to comply with these directives that
led to the seizure.
Sewell L. Avery, Ward's chairman
of the board who declared President
Roosevelt's order was without Con-
stitutional foundation and could not
be obeyed, spent several hours in his
offices, conferring with top company
Maj.-Gen. Joseph W. Byron, mili-
tary manager, spent half a day in his
office, separated from Avery's only

Maintain 24-Hour Control
Army officers remained at their
posts after the general and top staff
members departed. Public relations
officers said the Army would main-
tain 24-hour control of the facilities,
including the holiday week-end.
The Army position was that Avery
was free to carry on operations of
the huge mail order house other than
those in the seized properties.

Burma front, where he successfully
completed 51 missions and survived
a three-day ordeal when his P-40
was shot down inside Jap lines, Cap-
now troop commander at the Fourth
Air Force's Paine Field (Wash.).
While serving in China with the
Fourteenth Air Force, Capt. Black-
stone was officially credited with
shooting down three enemy planes.
In May, 1943, he was transferred to
India, where he served as director
of training and chief tactical advis-
or of an American-Chinese Training
In describing the tactics of the
Fourteenth Air Force Capt. Hol-
lis used the highest praises in
crediting its commander, Gen.
Chennault, stating that his princi-
ples "have produced results in
safety to our flyers and losses to
the Japs."
The Fourteenth Air Force, he
says, has used airpower "as in-
fantry, as machine guns and as
artillery. Often times," he states,
"we had to make un for the Chi-
nese Armies' lack of heavy weap-
ons and have played the role of
heavy ground weapons for them.
They (the Chinese) are courag-
eous defensive soldiers, but they
lack offensive firepower."

craft fire on 10 raids, he escaped in-
jury and completed the missions.
