Recognition Throughout the War Department as a whole and especially within the Sevfinth Zone, of which Arkansas is a part, considerable recognition has been accorded the construction of the Southwestern Proving Ground, and as the work progresses at. a steady rate,, the job achieves growing distinction. The officials, while proud of the fine accomplishments at the projects, are, for the most part, too busy to turn analytical and set out the factors that have contributed primarily to the success of the job. Perhaps it would be difficult to isolate any one thing as being the chief element in the construction progress. On the whole the job has run smoothly and never once has the drive toward completion stalled. At times circumstances beyond the control of the Project Management has slowed work on various parts of the composite undertaking. When this oc- curredj it was usually evident that the possibility had been foreseen and steps taken to swing into another phase of the many-sided task and prosecute other necessary work. A check of performance of various departments shows that close teamwork has been the rule throughout the job. To keep the wheels turning on such a huge undertaking as the project represents requires the meshing of many gears. From the pencil pushers in the central offices to the gang pushers on the labor crews the work is all on a common purpose. Apparently there is little in common between the well-dressed young fellow eating his lunch in the project cafeteria and the brawny workmen in boots and khakis at the next table, but almost invariably their work touches at some point. For instance when the plumber goes on the job in the morning and is told to begin work on a particular facility, the work was foreseen and provided for way back in the early stages of the construction. Plans were drawn, funds earmarked for 'the purchase of the plumbing equipment, the purchasing department placed the order for the fixture, the traffic department saw that delivery was made, and through many hands the business of installing the fixture passed before a plumber added the finishing touches of installation. , Army officers whose primary functions are the supervising of construction, compare the building of this project to that of a mass production assembly line. They point out that many craftsmen and professions have a part in the "final assembly" and the success of the whole job depends on how well the various units concerned manage to weld their efforts toward the common purpose of cm- pleting anther link in the chain of national defense. Commenting on the absence of any high pressure methods of trying to rush the work, a Government spokesman said, "I like to think that the average employee going about his duties on the job is simply doing the best he can, that he has the interest of the job, his organization, and his country at heart. In my opinion this kind of work attitude is better than all the drives, and other special incentives ever invented to keep a big'job running in high." »-»••«More remedies for colds are offered and sold than for any other infection. partment of Agriculture Appropriation bill of 1942, so that it specifically provides that these payments to farmers whose crops have been acquired under the National Defense program of 1940-41 be paid." U. S. Problem, Scare Buying Price Administro- ' tion Is Trying to Educate Public By JACK STINNETT WASHINGTON — One of the big problems the Office of Price Administration is trying to solve now is bow to educate the public against "scare buying" and at the same time hammer home the necessity of conservation of certain defense materials and products that .contain them. "Scare buying" is almost as old as merchandising itself. It's the old "get- Japanese Still (Continued from Page One) iod of conversation ahd confusion. Japs Prepare MANILA —(/P)— Japanese land, sea and air were concentrating in southern Indo-Chlna in impressive numbers, persons recently arriving from Saigon reported Wednesday arid informed quarters said troops, planes and ships could be used against the Dutch East Indies as well as agnlnst Thailand. Troops and supplies are arriving daily by ship and train at Saigon, tile recent arrival said, and clocks were piled with drums of gas, trucks and equipment. It was also reported that under-ground hangers were Under construction. Informed quarters quoted Dutch, American and British military quarters as saying, In their opinion, the outer islands of the Dutch Indies may be the first major Japanese objective, 'cm-while-thoyi-last" fi|amc played with all the subtleties of modern salesmanship. It's the raw materials producer saying to the manufacturer, I wouldn't do this for my own brother, but 1 can let you have ten tons and you better buy all of that because there probably won't be another ounce in 1942." It's the wholesale salesman whispering to the retailer over a hideaway luncheon table: "Joe, you better take the whole 10,000 gross. You know there are priorities nqw and they'll hit this stuff any day—maybe tomorrow." It's the retailer telling his customers that he hns been able to lay in fi small supply of these or those and when they are gone, there won't be any more. In some instances, it Is just that kind of a Vicious cycle und the evils that are born of it are high prices, hoarding, inflation—the business triplets that invariably run interference for postwar depression. On two major fronts (and a good many minor ones) OPA is waging ,a war against "scare buying" und at the same time trying to convince that greatest waster of all time, the American Public, that it has to mend its wasting ways if wo are going to come even close to satisfying the appetite of defense industries for raw materials. In the first place, OPA Director Leon Henderson called to Washington Edgar J. Kaufmann, the Pittsburgh department store tycoon. He put him behind an OPA desk, gave him the title of consultant on distribution problems—and ordered routed through him all questions relating to pricing and distribution of finished goods—"with special releferce to 'scare buying'." Mr. Kaufmann's field of operations is the 1,700,000 distributors and retailers in the country who peddle everything from hairpins to cultivators. On the other front, Associate OPA Director Harriet Elliott is trying through the "Consumer's Pledge"—to buy carefully, take good care of the goods they have, and waste nothing— Barbs Most people learn to skate in about Six sittings.

People who play with matches usually get burned. to make every purchaser of finished products as thick-skinned us possible against the lure of scare buying and at the same time press home the necessity for conservation. What happened in certain sections of the East when the gasoline shortage scare spread, is a good example of buying hysteria that develops when the public becomes alarmed at the prospect of having to do without some necessary commodity. A more recent example and an even better one is what is happening in the marketing of chemical products for preventiin of auto radiator frcez- ing. At the same time Miss Elliott is telling the world that the supply of anil-freeze should be adequate for this winter and that "no retail price advance for atiti-frcczc solutions Is justified at this time," she is explaining thnt because chemicals used are important in explosive manufacture and are needed for use by the Army and Navy, every motorist ought to follow the OPA consumer division's "eight points" for reducing anti-freczo solution waste to a minimum.
