WASHINGTON, Aug. 21-The Gov-
ernment unwrapped a big bundle of
news for American homes and busi-
ness today.
1. Your rent ceilings-if you live
in certain places-may come off very
soon. They'll go where wartime
swollen population dwindle. Not else-
where for months.

would be reduced, beginning next

Lend-Lease Aid
To Be Replaced
By Allied Loans
U. S. Plans 'i' Lend
Money for Purchases
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Aug. 21 - The
United States today formally turned
off the great Lend-Lease spigot, which
has poured a $40,000,000,000 torrent
of weapons and supplies into the anti-
Axis world.
In its place, the United States Gov-
ernment immediately, planned for
loans to war-stricken Allied countries
for purchases of American supplies.
Purpose Accomplished
The White House form,%4y called
off further operations pf Lend-Lease,
its purpose accomplised last week
by the surrender of Japan, last of the
Axis aggressors to fall.
President Truman directd cancel-
lation of all outstanding Lend-Lease
contracts, except where Allied gov-
ernments are willing to take themI
over or it is in this country's interest
to complete them.
Loans To Foreign Governments
Shortly afterward, Leo J. Crowley,
heid of the Foreign Economic Ad-
rnistration, .which -has -been .in
charge of Lend-Lease, set forth in a
news conference the arrangements
Under which loans may be made tot
foreign governments for purchases ofa
equipment and supplies in this coun-
In the four years and four monthsI
since Lend-Lease was set up at the
call of the late President Roosevelt
as a "total effort" to assure the
"total defeat" of the Axis, the Allied
world has been blanketed with more
than $40,000,000,000 of AmericanI
munitions, food and supplies of every
conceivable sort.t

Fear for Future
Standard of Life Bound
to Fall, Lyttelton Says
LONDON, Aug. 21-(A)-The ab-
rupt termination of Lend-Lease and4
a Parliamentary warning that with-<
out American aid the Empire's<
"standard of life is bound to fall,"c
tonight heightened Britain's concernI
over her economic future.
The admonition in the House of
Commons came from the former Con-
servative President of the Board of
Trade, Oliver Lyttelton, who said "If
you wish to obtain assistance from
the United States you must be careful
about the nasty things you say about,
private enterprise that will affront
American opinion."
This portion of his statement
brought loud laughter from the Labor,
side of the house.
But as the problems of peace con-
tinued to expose patches in Britain's
economic garments, a group of Unit-
ed States legislators and financial ex-
perts visiting in London en route to
the continent struck an optimistic
note. They appeared to agree that
American dollars must be employed

to bulwark the European economy in
order that full American employment
be maintained.

erson already had said meat rationing
would end soon.
Nylons By Thanksgiving
3. Nylon stockings will be back by
Thanksgiving, or at the latest by
Christmas. So says WPB. It re-
voked the order controlling produc-
tion of nylon and rayon.
4. Three and a half million radios
by Christmas-maybe. WPB says the
only limiting factor in making radios
from now on will be the supply of
5. The Government is considering
modifying credit controls, but not
wiping them out. This wold make
credit buying easier, but not as easy
as it was.
No Control on Building
6. Businessmen were told to build
all the new factories, plants and ad-
ditions they could. The Government
killed controls on the act of building
but kept controls on some materials,
like lumber.
7. In Detroit 280,000 CIO Auto
Workers were demanding a 30 per
cent wage increase, without waiting
for industry to get fully converted to
For Full Employment
8. Secretary of State Byrnes threw
his weight behind the "full employ-
nent" bill, which President Truman
wvants passed.
10. The salary stabilization unit-
which controlled white collar work-
ers' pay--faced early death. This
was good news for white collar work-
ers because it meant the raise limit
was practically off for them.

Give Trouble
To IndiIstria lists
By The Associated Press
NEW YORK, Aug.21-There still
are bottlenecks in the way of deliv-
ery of that new refrigerator or range
or automobile despite the "green
light" given civilian manufacture.
Industrial observers agreed today
the War Production Board's relaxa-
tion of 210 restrictions on output has
loosed a competitive rush to produce.
This very competition may bring
an immediate problem.
The Research Institute of America,
Inc., private-fact-finding organiza-
tion, predicted such a flood of exag-
gerated and duplicate buying by
'manufacturers trying to assure them-
selves an adequate supply of material
that WPB will be forced "within the
next few days" to take action.
A drastic prohibition against place-
ment of two or more orders for the
same materials or components is ex-
pected, the Institute said, with fine or
jail sentences the penalty for con-
scious violation.
Another factor affecting the rush
to peacetime production is govern-
ment pricing policies. Some observ-
ers fear a reluctance to raise price
ceiling to coincide with wage and
other cost increases may cause aban-
donment of certain lines of manu-

Cenerals in Manchuria
By The Associated Press
LONDON, Aug. 21 - Russia's Far
Eastern armies occupied five cities
on Japanese-owned southern Sak-
halin Island, lying 26 miles north of
the Japanese homeland, today and
seized four top-flight Japanese gen-
erals in their mop-up of Tokyo's
crack Kwantung army in Manchuria,
Moscow announced.
Marshal Alexander M. Vasilevsky's
Siberian soldiers continued their ad-
vance into Manchuria apparently
without opposition and were swarm-
ing over areas of the vast 503,013
square mile country where the Jap-
anese still were in control.
But over the entire Manchurian
and Sakhalin Island fronts, the last
Japanese hold-outs were giving up
and were surrendering en masse.
Moscow's brief communique an-
nounced that 52,000 Japanese officers
and men were rounded up yesterday
for a three-day total of more than
175,000 and, Moscow added, "the re-

State Speeds
Aid to Jobless
LANSING, Aug. 21 --)- Thous-
ands of persons waiting in line to
apply for unemployment compensa-
tion as war factories shut down pro-
duction were assured by Governor
Kelly and the State Civil Service
commission today that everything
possible was being done to shorten
the lines.
In a statement released by the
Executive Office, Kelly asserted that
the Michigan Unemployment Com-
pensation Commission was opening
additional offices to receive the
claims of unemployed for idleness
benefits and that all offices would re-
main open until midnight if neces-
sary to process the claims.
Kelly said it was probable that the

hours after Emperor Hiirohito's sur-
render envoys returned to Tokyo
from their conference at General
MacArthur's headquarters at Man-
ila. MacArthur remained silent on
occupation plans.
Air Operations Saturday
The communique said that air op-
erations would be started over Japan
Saturday, with the airborne land-
ings Saturday, and the entry early
Monday of "two Allied fleets" on
Sagami Bay, outside Tokyo Bay, with
"one unit entering Tokyo Bay if con-
ditions are favorable."
MacArthur already has announced
that the formal signing of surrender
terms will take place in the Tokyo
area by Aug. 30.
The Japanese communique said
that "in order to avoid any strife
arising from this landing" Nipponese
armed troops would be withdrawn
"as promptly as possible" from the
landing area south of Tokyo.
Limits of Withdrawal Area
Limits of the area for the with-
drawal of the Japanese troops were
described as follows:
"Within a line linking the east
bank of the Kamo-Gawa River,
Chiba City, the estuary of the Tam-
agawa River, Fuchu, Hachioji, Ot-
suki, and the southern end of Izu
Meanwhile, fighting in Manchuria
has virtually ended, with Russian
forces in possession of nearly all cit-
ies and strategic points. Nippon-
ese troops were surrendering to So-
viet units in Karafuto, southern half
of Sakhalin Island, only 26 miles
above the main northern Japanese
Island of Kokkaido.
But the Nipponese continued spor-
adic operations along the 300-mile
southeastern Burma front, and in
one instance British planes were
forced to break up a Nipponese force
which had surrounded guerilla units.
