Sullivan of Laurens, a lawyer, and License Tax Division Director Tom M. Howell of the state tax commission were added to the tax commission as additional manpower to direct revised liquor controls. A $2,500,000 supplemental nn-propriations bill was adopted, sending next year’s state appropriations soaring to a record high of $25,000,000 and boosting prospective overall state government costs above the $63,000,000 mark.

May 7— It’s official that the brownout will be Bited when victory in Europe becomes final, and it is predicted that revocation of the midnight curfew and the racing ban will follow shortly thereafter. Some so-called emergency home front restrictions will be retained indefinitely, however. Defense Transportation Director J. Monroe Johnson told the United Press there would be no change, for example, in the various voluntary restrictions on travel. As long as Japan keeps on fighting, he said, rail, plane and other transportation facilities in this country will continue to be overtaxed. War Production Chief J. A. Krug said definitely, however, that the brownout will be lifted as soon as the war is officially over in Europe. As for the racing ban, which ODT enforces, the transportation director would not commit himself because, he said, “it is a White House matter.” President Truman, however, left the inference at his first FUNERAL THIS AFTERNOON FOR MRS. TROWBRIDGE Funeral services for Mrs. Nellie Ray Trowbridge, 57, wife of Frank R.

Jones, who is in charge of Navy Recruiting in this district, that three men from Aiken and vicinity were enlisted in the Navy in April through his station. Those enlisted were:    Willie Countz Franklin, Aiken; James Edward Watson and Samuel Hughes Nicholson of Edgefield. These men are now awaiting call to a Naval Training Station to begin active duty. After com-| pleting training they will either I be sent to a Navy Shore Establish-! merit or to the Fleet to help de-| liver the final knockout blow in the Pacific. Chief Jones stated that all 17 year old men are urged to apply j for enlistment in the Navy now while the opportunity is offered to serve in the greatest Navy in the world. Chief Jones also stated that many more women are needed in the WAVES to help finish the job. Any women between the ages of 20 and 36 who has as much as two years of high schol and no children is eligible and is urged to apply. The Navy’s chief need righ8 now is RADAR men and all high ban after V-E. Anyway, racing people say the odds are that he will. Victory in Europe also is expected to bring back the late night spots, another recent war casualty. The midnight closing of movies, bars, night clubs, sporting arenas and other amusement places could serve no useful purpose after the end of the European war, some officials hold. The midnight curfew and the brownout, which darkened shop windows, advertising signs and theater marques, were invoked to saves coal, materials and manpower. Manpower and materials becoming and warm weather will ease the strain on coal supplies. These home-front curbs were imposed by former War Mobilization Director James F. Byrnes and his chief deputy, Major General Cueing I), ( lay. In official circles, it was said that the underlying reason for most of these i e-ti ictions was to stiffen home-fiont morale when the military situation in Europe last fall did not measure up to the optimism in this country. Vt ith Byrnes out of government ^ and Clay in Europe, the job of j revoking or retaining these re- I st notions is now at the White i doorstep.

Announces Unconditional Surrender of Germany President Truman Warns Japs of Full Annihilation—Mother’s DaySet As Day of Prayer. President Truman yesterday proclaimed complete and unconditional victory in Europe. And in a V-E proclamation he said “our blows will continue until die Japanese lay down their arms in unconditional surrender.” Going on the radio at 9 a. rn., the President told the nation he had set next Sunday—Mother s day—as a day of prayer in which he wanted all to join. For in rejoicing over victory, he asked the nation not to forget that “sorrow and heartache” abide in the homes of thousands of Americans. “This is a solemn but a glorious hour.” he declared. “General Eisenhower informs me that the foroes of Germany havei surrendered to the United Nations. The flags of freedom fly over all Europe. “For this victory we join in offering our thanks to the) Providence which has guided and sustained us through the dark days of adversity.” STRUGGLE BROUGHT TO END Thus was brought! to a close the titanic struggle which cost American armed forces 132,000 lives and more than 550,000 other casualties in three years, four months and seven days of fighting against the Axis in the European and Mediterranean theaters. Mr. Truman made it clear that this nation’s fight against aggression was not over., that the effort w ill not cease until the Japanese military and naval forces lay down their arm? as Nazi Germany has done. At the same time Mr. Truman gavq his assurances tliat unconditional surrender “docs not mean the extermination or enslavement of the Japanese people.’    ’ It means for them, he said, the end of the war, the. termination of the influence* of military leaders “who have brought Japan to the present brink of disaster.” SLAUGHTERERS TO APPLY FOR PERMIT Aiken county in a program Farmers in Being enlisted help assure an uninterrupted flow of meat to our armed forces and a more equitable distribution of the civilian supply, B.
