Germans Moving West PARIS, France—(/P)—Thousands of German reserves were reported flooding into the Siegfried line Monday to strengthen German's stand against the French advance on Nazi soil.

By JOHN T. FLYNN Written for NBA Service NEW YORK—The European conflict will make jobs and profits in some places and reduce jobs and profits in other plat-UK. So total employment in Ihe United States will not be increased by the war in the first six months and, perhaps, the first year. Prices, however, are immediately affected by war and will continue tp be affected. The causes of the price rises arc not at all complicated and rest on well known human reactions. Take, for insUmce, a commodity like hides. Prices of hides at Chicago soared 100 points in a day. Immediately tanners decided it would be unwise to sell at the current prices and promptly bottled tip the supply. It is the most natural thing in the world for the hide trade, which has had plenty of trouble since the last war, now that it sees a hope of selling its products at higher prices, to hold on lo its slocks until the prices get high onough. And the very act. of. holding on gives a further boost to the price. Price Rise Is Infectious The war immediately affected the prices of tilings like copper, hides, leather, woolen and worsted goods, burlap, woodpulp, chemicals and drugs T..IV. ,*. l njpl; 1 Cl-V'vut Ull LWU lUIIlOleS ~«i»"J', »» uull)lul|J, UI1U1IUU< by Haynesville.

Some were affected because of rising demand from foreign countries. Later, doubtless, steel, manufactured metal products, otc., will be affected. Farmers think they can hold their wheat fo r the big European demand and the same is true of hogs and other meats and some foods. All prices, of course, are not affected. But so startling a price rise as has occurred in certain articles is more or less infectious and prices have tended to move up all along the line. They should, except in certain articles, adjust themselves. Climb in Prices Must Be Curbed Tliis is a matter of grave importance to the ordinary citizen. A general boost in prices is equivalent to a corresponding reduction in his wages. And in' this way the war in these first two weeks has reached into the pockets of every citizen. But Ibis has a more serious aspect.

Such a proposal, diplomatic sources said, might be made either by Russia or Italy. Diplomats predicted Poland would be divided between the German and Russian invaders.
