Stettinius, the man who pumped martial lifeblood into Russia during the grimmest phases of her struggle with the Germans, moved into the No. 2 spot at the State Department today amid congressional predictions that harmony has been restored on this country's diplomatic front. President Roosevelt's appointment of the 42-year-old lend administrator as undersecretary of state, and his simultaneous reshuffling of the foreign economic and relief setups, were viewed on Capitol Hill as presaging a firmer approach to difficult international parleys ahead. Despite his "big business" background, the suave, earnest Stettinius has come to be well liked and respected in congressional circles. This was demonstrated forcefully when the bill renewing the life of his lend-lease administration went through congress with hardly a ripple of debate last spring.

And equally important, from the standpoint of the forthcoming tripartite talks among Britain, Russia, and the United States, his lection is almost bound to be welcomed in Moscow, where he is known as the man who dispatched arms, food and other lend-lease supplies for the Soviet troops. Coupled with the expected appointment of W. Averell Harriman, lend-lease expediter in London, as the new United States ambassador to Russia, the Stettinius choice is regarded as likely to offset any Soviet disappointment over the retirement of Sumner Welles, former undersecretary, Welles had been looked on by the Russians as one of their staunchest friends in the State Department. His resignation was announced with "sincere regret" by President Roosevelt in a statement which gave Mrs. Welles' health as the reason.

There had been reports for some time of fundamental differences between the undersecretary and Secretary Hull. The appointment of Stettinius, who had not figured prominently in speculation over a cessor to Welles, was announced with such dramatic suddenness that he had to cancel plans for attending a ship launching in San Francisco and fly back to Washington. It is probable that he and Harriman will accompany Secretary Hull to Moscow next month for a meeting wih the British and Russian foreign ministers, preliminary to a Roosevelt-Stalin-Churchill conference. Stettinius, who has been to Moscow before in connection with Lend-Lease operations, is expected to apply his practical and realistic business experience to his new post -he formerly was chairman of the board of the United States Steel Corporation. Mr.

Roosevelt said his business experience admirably fitted him for the job. In further preparation for important developments in foreign economic and relief fields, the President announced these moves: The appointment of former Gov. Herbert H. Lehman of New York as special presidential assistant to complete plans for next month's organization meeting of the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration. Lehman has been mentioned as a likely director general for this international agency.

The consolidation, under Leo T. Crowley, of the Office of Economic Warfare, the Lend-Lease administration, the Office of Foreign Economic Coordination, and the Office of Foreign Relief and Rehabilitation Operations. Much of the latter office, now headed by Lehman, probably will be absorbed into the United Nations setup. Jaycees To Hold Scrap Paper Drive In City Sunday The Junior Chamber of Commerce assisted by Boy Scouts will conduct as house-to-house scrap paper campaign here next Sunday. Paper is to be bundled and left on the porch or sidewalk and leaders of the drive have issued a statement concerning preparation of the paper for collection.

Darrell Patty, chairman of the scrap paper committee, said, after talking to officials of an out-oftown paper manufacturing concern, that the paper could be more easily handled and more paper could be sent at one time, if the residents will have the paper bundled when the trucks call in their respective neighborhoods. Newspapers should be folded flat (the the paper boy sells them) hand tied in bundles about 12 inches high. Magazines should be tied in bundles about 18 inches high. Corrugated and cardboard boxes and cartons should be flattened out and tied in bundles about 12 inches high, and wastebasket paper, (wrappers, envelopes) should be packed in a box or bag for easy handling. Mr.

Patty went on to say that a box-car will be placed on a siding at the freight depot in which the scrap paper will be put for delivery to the paper mills. The car will hold 30,000 pounds of paper, and Mr. Patty said, "we ought to be able to fill that easily--maybe another one besides." Scrap paper is needed to make FBI Police Conference Here Tomorrow The Federal Bureau of Investigation quartely police conference for this area will be held in the U. S. District Court room at the Post Office Building tomorrow morning at 10:30 o'clock, H.

I. Bobbitt, special agent in charge of the Richmond F. B. I. office, has announced.

All law enforcement officers, including the auxiliary police, are to attend the session. Chief of Police Ural Watson of the Danville Police Department, will addres sthe group on "Cooperation Between Federal, State, Municipal and County Officers," Sergeant John F. Floyd of the Martinsville Police Department, will speak on "Civilian Defense Activities in War Time" and Captain W. C. Thomas, Virginia State Police, will use "Statewide Communications in War Time" as his topic.

Following the speeches there will be an open panel forum and discussion on Selective Service, security matters and mutual police problems. At 12:00 noon the meeting will adjourn for luncheon. In conclusion there will be firearms demonstration, commencing at 1 o'clock, which will consist of the firing of Thompson submachine guns, the practical pistol course and the riot or gas gun. The Thompson machine gun has been used in the apprehension of some of the most dangerous criminals of the nation. It has been popular with law enforcement officers for years as well as being used extensively by the Army, Navy and Marines.

It will fire 500-600 shots per minute and has a maximum range of 200-250 yards. However, it is considered most effective up to 100 yards, it has been said. The practical pistol course was designed by firearms experts of the F.B.I. to give experience in firing from various practical positions that a law enforcement officer might encounter from time to time. The course consists of rapid fire hip shooting, firing from the prone, from sitting positions and from behind barricades with both the left and right hand.

The gas gun is effective in dispersing large crowds or quelling riots and disturbances of that nature. Rites Today For William E. Cook William E.

HERMAN "Danville's Best SHOWDOWN ON DRAFT IS SOUGHT Taft Presses Action On 30-Year Age Limit For Inducted Fathers By JACK BELL WASHINGTON, Sept. With the Wheeler no-father draft bill apparently headed toward a committee pigeonhole, Senator Taft (R-Ohio) announced today he would demand a showdown vote in the Senate this week on a substitute proposal directing selective service to take only family heads under 30 years old.

Taft told reporters that no matter what happens to the Wheeler bill--which would delay the induction of pre-Pearl fathers until after Jan. seek Harbor, to force action on his measure. The substitute would permit the drafting of fathers to begin on schedule Friday, but would limit selections to younger married men. "There are about 1,000,000 married men under 30 years old with children and all of the 446,000 fathers the Army and Navy say they need to fill their quotas this year could be obtained from that class," Taft declared. His opinion was that if the younger fathers were taken it might never be necessary to call CHRISTINAS Many THEY'LL think more of your gifts, if they arrive on time!

Herman Has family men over 30 who, he contends, are much more likely to have responsibilities that are not shared by those under that age. The Ohio senator said he recognized that his proposal would throw an added burden on selective service, but he insisted that a classification of this nature ought to have been made long ago. If Taft is successful in obtaining a vote, his measure might replace the bill of Senator Wheeler (-Mont).

Even then, its final approval by the Senate seemed doubtful. The Wheeler measure is screduled for debate tomorrow, with the prospect that after it has been discussed two or three days a motion will be made to send it back to the military committee for further study. Another substitute will be offered tomorrow by Senator Bailey (D-NC), which, if adopted, would forbid deferments for bachelors and married men without children now employed by the government. A similar measure may be brought before the House, but aides said Bailey would not press substitute if final action on the Wheeler bill is delayed.
