The State and Justice Departments have informed the Senate Commerce Committee that they are opposed to a chosen instrument for international air transportation. Opinions of the Secretary of State and the Attorney General, requested by the committee in connection with the McCarran Bill, arrived on Capitol Hill at about the same time the committee dispatched its letter to President Roosevelt requesting virtually that the Administration hold up all action on international air arrangements until Congress — which has been working on the matter for a year — has had a chance to consider whether it wants to change present laws and policies.

SCHOLER BANGS
<p>Virtually all the nation’s once-flourishing 64 civil contract war pilot training schools will be dominant in the opening of West Coast civilian aviation enterprises the moment war ends.

Powerful land-sea-air task forces under Admiral Halsey (Third Fleet) and Admiral Spruance (Fifth Fleet) are preparing to carry the war closer to Japan on practically a non-stop basis, one striking while the other builds up strength for a new blow.
