TWO mo, WAR TASKS In wartime the cotton trade has two important tasks which rank above the job of satisfying civilian home consumption. First, it. hns lo supply the demand of the armed services for all kinds of materials such as articles of clothing, bedding, overalls, airplane and balloon fabrics, bandages and dressings, material for tires, electric cables and cotton wool, an essential Ingredient hi the manufacture of high explosives. Second Is the mimufaclure of cotton goods for the export trade. Britain is making a desperate effort not. only to hold the markets she has. but even lo extend them. Of eqiial importance is thai b\ holding her trade, the country obtains foreign exchange for further war effort. Communists' ]-won'l-talk tactics are keeping him from following through on them.

April 18. —Unless Congress changes its minci and rcslores to the L.-ibor Board's appropriation bill the $45,600 which ivas to have paid the board's research division next year, the famous rinding in the "liuic steel" case may fall to the ground of its own weight. This was the biggest case Ihe board ever handled. The finding, just upheld by the Supreme Court, directs reinslu lenient and back pay for thousands of former Republic Steel strikers. But if the research division doesn't get it.s money, there will bo a big hitch. The job of seeing that ihe rind- ing is put. into effect is enormously complicated, and it's the research division thai has to do most of it. u plans to open five sub- regional offices and take on extra help, and figures Ihe job will take all summer. But the next. Fiscal year begins July 1, and as livings are now, the division's money will llu-n be cut oil. * * * CLAIMS MUSI' UK SIFTED I'rac:ical!y all of the strikers have been rehired by Republic, but the board claims lots of them goi poorer jobs than they used to have despite its ruling that the jote must, be "substantially equivalent" to the old ones, ao, for one thiiif, an intricate bit of job-analysis imfet be done for hundreds upon hi-ndreds of . individuals.'

MUlll'llY AND JACKSON NUT TOO COKIMAL, Attorney General Jackson and his predecessor, Supreme .Court Justice Murphy, never were exactly Damon and Pythias. They've bern even less so since Jackson took over Ihe juslire Department. Latest indication of. this came when Senator Tobey accused the department of drafting a bill to make secret census data available to the FBI and to army and navy intelligence outfits. Jackson immediately pointed out 'that Justice had merely drafted Die bill at an unnamed official's request; then lie added, tartly, that anyway il was done under Murphy, and .that the bill "is not in accord .with the present policy of the Department of Justice."
