Summary
  • Close-ups of the news. President Roosevelt asked the Congress for totalitarian powers: 1) total mobilization of all of our human resources; 2) the authorization to conscript men into tasks other than combat; 3) compulsory military training for all United States youths when our present two wars end. Bill Green, of AFL, reacts that industrial draft will not help. The public is being given conflicting information about how the war is progressing. How do we return to a democracy after approving temporary totalitarian powers? He feels Mr. Roosevelt is out of touch. Greece truce was called off this morning. Worry about the rise of communism in America. Yesterday Orson Welles lead a meeting in Hollywood, California supporting a people's revolution. Upton Close calls for a revolution to preserve true American liberties and government. Montgomery announces that Germans are stopped and sealed off. Conflicting report says Germans have broken through in Holland and have broken Patton's flank in the south. Japanese are withdrawing from upper Burma. Seaport near Calcutta was taken by British amphibious forces. Modernized Chinese army are heading toward the railhead north of Mandalay. Japanese are holding Mandalay/Rangoon area. They have 25,000 prisoners. Japanese pushing into west China moving their roadblock in Chongqing up nearer the Chinese capital. Three MacArthur convoys are in the Lingayen Gulf. Elections for Western Union employees for a union run by communists. This could compromise radio communications
