WASHINGTON, Jan. 24.- Minusi
an "anti-closed shop" clause, a lim-i
ited National Service Bill for ment
between 18 and 45 won final approval
of the House Military Committeec
today.
As a substitute for the closed shop
ban which it had written into thec
measure tentatively Monday by a
14 to 10 count, the committee voted
to give registrants a "reasonableI
choice of employers for whom to
work" when directed to do so byE
their local draft boards.
Closed Shop Clausee
The original amendment wouldt
have permitteda man assigned to an
essential job to work in a closed shopc
without joining a union. It was de-t
leted by a margin of one or two votes.t
The bill itself was approved by a
20 to 5 count, and Chairman Mayf
(Dem., Ky.) said he would ask thei
rules committee tomorow to clear it
for House debate starting either Fri-
day or Monday. With several days of I
debate in sight, a final House deci-'
sion is not expected before late nextc
week
May said the closed shop amend-I
ment was rejected because the com-
mittee "wanted to eliminate contro-
versial things."
Draft Board Authority
The committee also gave to local
draft boards authority to determines
whether a man should remain in his1
present job or move into one more
essential, the determination of what
is essential to be made by the direc-
tor of war mobilization or some
agency he designates.
Local draft boards also were em-
powered to defer discharged service-
men from orders to take essential_
jobs.

LANSING, Jan. 24.-With a final
vote scheduled for tomorrow morning
in the Senate, the Legislature was
ready today for its first piece of con-
troversial legislation of the 1945 ses-
sion-a bill to place the entire state
on Central War (slow) Time.
The bill was reported out by the
Senate State Affairs Committee with-
out change today.
Affairs Committee Acts
The committee action followed re-
lease of an Attorney-General's opin-
ion asserting that no city could adopt
a different time schedule than the,
remainder of the state unless its
charter or the Legislature gave it
that right.
The opinion was sought by the
committee after the Detroit Common
Council declared it !would follow Eas-
tern War (fast) Time no matter
what the Legislature did.
Cigarette Tax Bill
A bill to levy a stamp tax on cigar-
ettes was sponsored by Senator
George N, Higgins, Ferndale Repub-
lican. Proposing to levy a tax of two
cents per package of popular sized
cigarettes, Higgins said it would pro-
duce $8,000,000 in revenue to be
returned to local communities.
Senator Elmer R. Porter, Blissfield
Republican, introduced a bill to levy
a specific tax on grain, declaring the
present plan of taxing grain stocks{
as personal property was unreason-
able and drove grain out of the state.
He proposed a tax of two mills pera
100 pounds of grain.

Music Clinic
Highlighting the Seventh Annual
Instrumental Music Clinic, sponsored
by the School of Music and Michigan
School Band and Orchestra Associa-,
tion, the University Concert Band,
conducted by Prof. William D. Revel-
ii, will present its annual mid-winter
concert at 4:15 p. ;n. Sunday, Feb. 4,
in Hill Auditorium.
With Dr. Edwin F. Goldman, out-i
standing American bandmaster, Mor-
ton Gould and William Schumann,
contemporary composers, as guests
and between 250 and 300 high school
music directors from Michigan, Illi-
nois, Indiana and Ohio, this year's
Clinic will probably be one of the
largest such gatherings in the United
States.
Its purpose this year, according to
Prof. Revelli, is to challenge Ameri-
can composers to write music for our
growing number of American bands.
This year, as in past meetings, Uni-
versity musicians will play many
numbers from which the school mu-
sic directors will select the ones which
all school bands and orchestras will
play in the annual spring competi-
tions.
The Clinic which had its inception
at the University during the winter
of 1938, was established to fill the
need for a reading clinic to hear Band
and Orchestra Festival literature.

FIFTEENTH AIRFORCE HEAD-

ed)-AP)-Master Sergeant Frank H.
Walter of Greenville,.S. C, has watch-
ed the bombing business grow up
from bricks to blockbusters and he
thinks it's here to stay.
It's come quite a way down the road
since 1918 when the sergeant then 16,
added a year to his age, enlisted in
the Army, and wound up as an ob-
server in the awkward biplanes flown
by the 317th Aerial Squadron.
Today at 43, he's a technical in-
spector at a 15th Airforce Liberat-
or wing. He has to see that the big
four-engine jobs, which probably
could carry a couple of those old
crates on their backs, are fit for
combat and; as he crawls into the
inside of these new huge models,
thoughts of those other days come
back to him.

work in a supporting role in that
movie. The authors of the film's

to duck "ack-ack" from .45 pistol
shots. Whed the "ack ack" missed,
the plane crews would wave derisively.
Today it would be quite a- trick to
wave at antiaircraft crews from 25,000
feet-even if you wanted to. But
machine guns were finally synchron-
ized with the propellers-and right
there, said the sergeant, "The gen-
tlemen's war of the skies began to
lose its charm."
"At first," he recalled, "we tried
to get. on top of the Jerry planes and
dry bricks on them. Or we might
try to force them to land in our ter-
ritory. If we did, we swooped down
and waved so-long. They did the
same to us.
"But late in that last year of
the war it all changed. Soon both
our planes and the krauts were car-
rying demolition bombs and drop-
ping them on dumps and railroad
yards I remember two days be-
fore the armistice we had a forma-
tion of 265 Handley Pages and flew
over the fortress city of Metz. Aer-
ial war wasn't one of bricks any-
more."
Walter stayed in the Army until
1927, seeing the Pacific, particularly
Hawaii and the Philippines, and
reached the permanent grade of
sergeant. Until 1939 he was a street-
car motorman and superintendent in
San Francisco.
When this war got under way he
re-enlisted in the airforce but that
was after his marriage to Clarice
Vernelle Winn who lives with their
year-old daughter at 12 Whitner
Street, Greenville.
After the war he wants to settle
down to a garage business--for
automobiles-on his 140 acres three
miles out of San Jose, Calif., on the
Fresno Highway.
"Oh yes," he adds hurriedly "I
also want to get an additional 280
acres and run a private airport for
civilian aircraft. I expect I'll have
my own plane."
It is obvious Sergeant Walter ex-
pects aviation is here to stay.
