Youths of 18

Neither the marines nor the
navy now have a limit on the
number of 18-year-olds that can
be enlisted for one year enlist
ments. That was the word re

navy and the marine recruiting
stations located in room 221
post office building.
The navy communique stated
that the unlimited quota ap
plied until July 1 and that
there would be no waiting list.
The marines, however, were
given no deadline on their un
limited quota. The information
that the Salem marine recruit
ing office received further stat
ed that there was no limit on
the number of men that could
be re-enlisted.
Announced also by the navy
was an increased quota for
three-year enlistments and at
the same time the Salem naval
recruiting station stated that it
still had openings for three more
men during the month of April.
The station is encouraging all
high school graduates wanting
to enlist in the navy to try for
one of the many programs avail
able. It also was stated that
there is now a possibility that
there will be only a short wait
before the men are accepted by

Editors Ask Strengthening
Of 'Voice of America'
Washington, April 21 Wi The "Propaganda of Truth" beamed
aboard by the state department is a major weapon of the coldl
war and should be strengthened, a committee of the American!
Society of Newspaper Editors declared today. i
Three hundred newspapermen at the ASNE annual meeting
were told by J. Russell Wiggins,
chairman of the special com
mittee on the foreign informa
tion program
"That the program is even
more Important than it was
when first conceived; that It is
eftective as far as it is able to
go; that it is inadequate to the
requirements of foreign policy
in today's world crisis."
The committee held that a
"much larger" sum is required
than the $36,000,000 asked of
congress for the Voice of Amer
ica broadcasts and to her infor
mation activity In the year start
ing next July 1.
Concurring with a recent find
ing of the congressionally-cre-ated
United States commission
on international information, the
ASNE group said the informa
tion budget should be brought
into better balance with the
country's multi-billion dollar
military and foreign aid pro
grams. "The great struggle for the
minds of men was a conspicuous
part of the cold war a year
ago," said Wiggins, who is man
aging editor of the Washington
Post.
"It Is now more clearly than
ever the crucial battle of our
time.
"We must enter into the con
test for men's minds with spirit,
vigor and enthusiasm."
Both Crackpots
Portland, Ore., April 21 (u.R
Mrs. Frieda Lawson, 26-year-old
mother of six, said today she had
received only two "crackpot"
proposals in answer to her offer
to marry a "handsome enough"

don about 100 persons of Tral
guen Jail, reported "completely

Soviet Russia
Paris. April 21 Konnl Zil
liacus. left wing British legisla
tor, told the communist-sponsor
ed "world peace congress" today
the "workers of Britain will not
fight or be dragged into fighting
against the Soviet union."

gro singer, told the delegates
yesterday that Negroes in the
United States would never fight
the Soviet union and his state
ment brought a promp reply
from a Negro leader in New

The clapping of the 2000 dele
gates from more than 50 nations
became so loud when Zilliacus
made his declaration today that
his next words could not be
heard.
When the hall quieted, Zilli
acus was saying:
"That is why the new China
is victorious. The workers will
not let themselves be turned into
a blood bank for politicians in
capable of solving their problems
in any other way."
Zilliacus, a member of the Bri
tish labor party, called upon the
delegates to produce a reason
ably detailed set of proposals
"for settling issues between the
east and west."
The keynote speeches bristled
with attacks on "imperialists"
and "warmongers."
