FDR Gives Jones'


Post to


Resignation of Secretary Asked
To Make Way for Ex-Vice President
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Jan. 21-Jesse H. Jones disclosed tonight he has
resigned as Secretary of Commerce and that President Roosevelt intends
to give the job to Henry A. Wallace-over Jones' protest.
The 70-year-old Texan acted at request of the President, giving up
the cabinet post to make way for Mr. Roosevelt's nomination of the former
Vice President, termed by Jones "inexperienced in business and finance."
At the same time, Jones brushed aside a Presidential suggestion that
he consider taking an Ambassadorship.
The President, addressing the man he named to his cabinet four years
ago as "Dear Jesse," wrote that Wallace is "fully suited" for the post.


General plans for this second pro-
duction of the Kapers which will be
held at 3:30 p. m. Sunday in Hill
Auditorium are rapidly nearing com-
pletion, it was reported, and the all
student acts will be rehearsing all
this week for the show.
'Doe' Fielding is M. C.
Highlighting the two hour show
will be Doc Fielding, the. campus
favorite, serving as master of cere-
monies and he indicated yesterday
that he will have "a few surprises
for the campus Sunday."
Orhe story of University tradition
will be told in song by the 60 voice
Women's Glee Club under the lead-
ership of Jean Gillman. Old cam-
pus melodies that carry campus spir-
it into future years will be rendered
by the all girl choir as well as some
specialty numbers.

Bev. Wittan and Dot Murzek are'
preparing some new, and novel dance
numbers for the show which will be{

Capitol Expects
Assurance oii
Big Three Meet
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Jan. 21-Presi-
dent Roosevelt is expected to take
extraordinary precautions to reas-
sure Congress about the results of
his projected conference with Chur-
chill and Stalin.
Even more this year than in pre-
vious wartime sessions the Chief
Executive evidently desires to avoid,
or offset beforehand, any possible
charges of secret agreements or spe-
cial deals withheld from the Ameri-
can people and Congress.
After both the Moscow conference
in the fall of 1943 and the subse-
quent Big Three meeting at Heheran,
Mr. Roosevelt and former Secretary
of State Hull went to considerable
lengths to emphasize that there had
been no secret arrangements.

The city was taken Friday by two
American columns, which also
scooped up two nearby airdromes.
Frontline dispatches said the city
was left a smouldering ruins by the
Japanese who evidently had doused
every house with gasoline and then
applied torches. Tarlac was a scene
of complete devastation, its Filipinof

Konigsberg, Stalin disclosed.
Red Army units in the southern
invasion of East Prussia were only

Jones made public the correspond-
