FDR Message
To Congress Is
Expected Today
Presid ent Will Isue
King, Marshall Reporits
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Jan. 16-Presi-
dent Roosevelt asserted today that
the need for men in the armed for-
ces and war factories is now so ex-
treme that voluntary controls will
no longer work.
Hence he will send to Congress,
probably tomorrow, a special com-
munication backing up his recent
demand for national service legisla-
President's News Conference
The President told his news con-
ference that he would transmit, with
a few words of his own, a report
from General George C. Marshall.
Army Chief of Staff, and Admiral
Ernest J. King, Commander in Chief
of the Fleet.
While Mr. Roosevelt did not com-
ment on this report, it was learned
authoritatively that Marshall and
King would say that the nation now
faces its most urgent demand of the
war for the replacement of men and
Inereased Needs
They were expected to be specific
in outlining the increased needs oc-
casioned by the German counter-of-
fensive in Belgium, expanded opera-
tions in the Pacific and plans to
equip a large French Army.
Asked about CIO President Philip
Murray's opposition to compulsory
manpower legislation in testimony
before a House committee today, Mr.
Roosevelt inquired if Murray had an
alternative. The- alternative involv-
ed a better use of voluntary meth-
ods, a reporter said.
Firm Reply
The President replied firmly that
he didn't think that would bring
The War Manpower Commission,
meanwhile, designated a list of jobs
as "critical." They include produc-
tion of aircraft and parts; of ships,
boats and parts; of ammunition;
ordnance and accessories; of metal
shapes and forging; of machinery
and of rubber products; all jobs in
smelting, refining and rolling of
metals, except scrap salvage, and
most of those in transportation, coal
mining and petroleum classifications.

Ty 'ihe Associated Press
LANSING, Jan. 16-A bill to abol-
ish the state liquor monopoly and
turn the retail sale of intoxicants
over to private dealers was filed with
the clerk of the House of Represent-
atives today, with prospects of be-
coming one of the most controver-
sial issues before the legislature.
It came in with sponsorship of
Rep. Dora H. Stockman, East Lan-
sing Republican, and 11 other legis-
lators. The filing is a prelude to its
formal introduction tomorrow, after3
which it will be referred to commit-
Nugent Prods Members
In the House, speaker Howard
Nugent started to prod members to
;et their bills in early, declaring he
=oped the legislators by hard and
lonsistent work could complete the
1945 session in April.
Governor Kelly submitted a mes-
sage to both legislative branches,
asking the lawmakers to create a
special committee of senators and
representatives to draft a bill for
reorganization of Michigan's much
criticized state mental hospital ad-
ministrative organization.
Hospital Director Is Question
It was interpreted by lawmakers
as a move by the governor to pass
to their shoulders responsibility for
determining whether a layman or
professional man should be the state
hospital director, a touchy issue. A
non-salaried commission now ad-
ministers the program through a
salaried executive secretary who is
a layman.
Mrs. Stockman said her liquor bill
was not prompted by any temper-
ance or prohibition group.

Pa id Gunmen
Being Sought
In Hooper Case
Witnesses Threatened
'y Telephone Callers

By The Associated Press
JACKSON, Mich., Jan. 16-The
manhunt for the slayer of State Sen-
ator Warren G. Hooper, a key fig-
ure in a grand jury investigation of
corruption in Michigan government,
has been directed toward known
"professional gunmen," Kim Segler,
the grand jury's special prosecutor,
declared tonight.
Apparently working on the belief
that the roadside execution, last
Thursday evening of the 40-year-old
legislator, was done by hired pro-
fessional killers, Sigler said police
were investigating several "suspects,"
some of them "professional gun-
men," in various cities.
Investigators Probe Murder
The probe, Sigler said, was being
conducted by his staff of investigat-
ors and cooperating police depart-
ments of other cities. Sigler declined
to name either the suspects or the
cities, but he said some of the cities
were outside of Michigan.
Hooper's bullet-riddled and char-
red body was found in his burning
automobile on a lonely stretch of
road near Springport, Mich.
Witnesses Intimidated
At Lansing, attempted grand jury'
witness tampering and intimidation
was disclosed before Circuit Judge
Leland W. Carr, conducting his one-
man grand jury inquiry.
Harry R. Williams of Wheaton,
Ill., one-time lobbyist and a prose-
cution witness against six former
legislators, who were ordered to
stand trial on graft conspiracy
charges, testified he had received a
mysterious telephone call at his Chi-
cago office.

Military publications printed
throughout the world and propa-

and our enemies are being collected
by the Clements Library for interest
and historical value after the war. 1
In reply to a circular reprinted

and women in the armed forces ask-
ing for such papers and information,

because no one bothered to collect or
save the copies," Peckham said.
"All the papers and magazines
published today in war areas are
printed on - inexepensive paper and
aren't durable. No serviceman com-
ing home from overseas is going to
bring back newspapers, therefore the
Library is saving and collecting them
now," Peckham pointed out.
First Editions
The Clements Library has already
received many newspapers from all
parts of the world where Michigan
men and women are stationed. The
first editions of Stars and Stripes
published in Rome and in liberated
Paris are in the files. Yank, the
weekly picture magazine is in five
editions, the New York, British, Per-
sian Gulf, Down Under and Pan-
American, and copies of each have
been sent to the Library.
Zero Beat
Other papers are the "Guinea
Gold." "TNT" (Trinidad News Tips)
the "Kodiak Bear," published by men
at Fort Greely, Alaska, "The Fijitive"
from the South Pacific, the "Last
Outpost," which is in the Aleutians,
"Goat's Whisker" from the Gala-
pagos ,Islands, "The Fox-Hole Ob-
server" printed in New Guinea and
the "Zero Beat" from East Africa.
The last newspaper headlined the
fact that a corporal was promoted to
a sergeant as the most exciting thing
that had happened there, hence the
name "Zero Beat." The latest arrival
is a copy of "Free Philippines," pub-
lished on Leyte Island in December.
Among the propaganda leaflets
sent to the Library by Michigan
Alumni are those being used by the
Allies on the enemy. Two illustrated
pieces in Japanese dropped from our
planes on the Japs in Attu and Kiska
in 1943 were sent to Mr. Peckham.
He also has a cartoon;and booklet in
Arabic which were scattered. over
North Africa when we landed there.
A leaflet illustrating the three meals
a day our soldiers get was dropped
on Sicily in July, 1943. Also at the
Library are two pieces printed in
German used first in Italy and then
in France, which were shot from
cannons into the German lines.
Enemy Propaganda
Enemy propaganda dropped on our
men is also being sent in by Michigan
alumni. One gave .incorrect figures
about the draft, and rgisquotes or
partial quotes by various churches in
the United States on their views of
the war, including Father Divine's
famous pronouncement "Peace! It is
wonderful !"

Lt. Goldman, now at the AAF
