"ON U.S. BATTLESHIP" America Halts Printing Of Ration Books N.Z. Press Association—Copyright Rec. 2. WASHINGTON, Aug. 13. j According to the columnist, David' Lawrence, the Japanese surrender terms will be signed this week on board the battleship Missouri, named after President Truman's home State, in the presence of General Mac Arthur and Admiral Nimitz. The Japanese representatives will be given detailed armistice arrangements. Mr. Lawrence adds that the Allied Supreme Commander- who will give orders to the Emperor is General Mac Arthur. He has already been chosen to be commander of the land armies in the event of invasion. Hence all plans have converged naturally on his selection for the big job of ruling post-war Japan. It is authoritatively stated that Marshal Chiang Kai-shek will lead the Chinese representatives at the signing of the Japanese surrender. The Office of Price Administration has halted the printing of 187,000,000 new ration books for food, shoes and petrol. If Japan surrenders no more books will be printed.
