Starved for Lack ot Steel Unless steel bars for reinforced concrete construction work are re-' ceived—and soon—75,000 men will be thrown out of work. They have been engaged up to now constructing roads, buildings of various descriptions and generally employed in the principal industry Uruguay has outside of its cattle and sheep raising. If there are no steel rods, construction must stop and responsible authorities—placing an estimate of four to a family—are seriously alarmed over the prospect of 300,000 men, women and children of Uruguay losing their means of support. This is more than 10 per cent of the population of the country. There is no German problem in Uruguay. The automobiles of the city are decorated with victory "Vs." American industries are the favored industries. Even the local news of the country is gathered and distributed by the United Press, an American agency, which maintains a large bureau in Montevido devoted entirely to the handling of Uruguayan news for Uruguayan newspapers. In the face of all this, it is a little difficult for a Uruguayan to understand why some steel isn't to be had. In effect .therefore, Uruguay is going to reverse the process that has been going on and intends to send a goodwill mission to the United States. It will be in the form of additional personnel for the Embassy in Washington, and the job will be to spell out Uruguay's needs and then follow through every channel, step by step, until steel is forthcoming. The country needs only about 88,000 tons annually, and considering the vast production advertised by the United States, that doesn't seem to be much to an anxious government official of Uruguay. Two dangerous factors have been entering into the situation in recent weeks. One is speculation, and the other is uncertainty and doubt that has been arising in the minds of Uruguayans owing to whispered reports brought to them that Brazil and Argentina are getting better treatment at the hands of the United States. They hear of the Brazilian boom and say "Then Brazil must be gelling sleel."

And the contractor of Uruguay begins to wonder whether it is price that controls delivrey.

"Good Will" Tours Expensive The seemingly unending stream of North American "good will" missions actually has created financial problems for the Uruguayans, what with all of the entertaining to he done—and time problems as well, if the business of The Germans, obviously, will not be able to furnish the machinery for the plant. Inquiries arc already being made as to whether American sources can finish the job. It's nil vt-ry important to Uruguay, since this little country has no fuel supply whatsoever. It needs water power. If and when the job of furnishing the mach the city and country was to be car- i inery is taken over, there may be plon- ried on. When one of the last missions appeared, Uruguayans requested that it please be understood that there be no day-time social affairs scheduled, even if the Americans paid for the entertainment. The Uruguayans felt they simply had to get on with their jobs. The government and people of Uruguay didn't need any selling, but the visits of some of the good willers were not without their bright spots. The President—General Alfredo Baldomir—is still talking about Jo Davidson. This famous sculptor did a bust of the President, all the while sputtering typical Davidsonian bon mots through his whiskers, and Jo delighted the General. Ambassador 0awson had the opportunity of meeting the entire Uruguayan congress as the result of the visit of one mission. The Ambassador had a cocktail party for this mission and invited all the members of the congress and most of them came. 1 But here, as in Brazil, North and South Americans agree that the most effective way for the United States to display good will is to deliver goods that are sorely needed at fair prices. Nazis Can't Fill Contract Some time around next June, there will be a nice little point of contract interpretation to be worked out between Germany and Uruguay, and the United States may have a hand in it. it has to do with a big power plant that is being constructed on the River Negro, above Montevideo. When completed the plant will be able to serve all of Uruguay with light and ty of argument over the German contract for a long time to cotne. To Panama 'Danger Zone Maj. Gen.

Counter-espionage Agent William, G. Sebold received about $20,000 from Hamburg for spy payrolls. He paid out little; most of it is .still in the bank and will help pay the cost of fostering and then smashing the spy ring. The evidence indicates less than $50,000 was spent by Hamburg on the 33 spies and suspects during the 18 months the ring operated. The FBI learned through its quarry about German spies in other countries such gossipy tidbots as the report the head German agent in Lisbon, a Mr. Dual te, used to photograph all London-bound diplomatic main. His pictures were said to arrive in Berlin as soon as or sooner then Ihe original documents reached London. An agent said that when the ring was rounded up late last June, the Long Island 'spy" radio transmitted the bad news to Hamburg. Gestapo headquarters expressed astonishment at the job done by the FBI and for days urged the arrested to sit tighl and say nothing. Then, when it became known that Ihe FBI itself had been operating the ti-answitter, the Gestapo wirelessed "congratulalions." It was Hamburg's la§t message to Long Island. Bird Shoots Man AVOCA, N.

So thousands of wo- nien, wim had mure leisure than their husbands, went to work on the problems presented. Members of the Li-ague of Women Voters, which has GOO local chapters throughout the country, investigated housing conditions in many sections and stimulated legislation lo improve housing. Other nitrnburs brought pressure on legislatures to survey public- school systems with an eye to improving .•idininisu'atioii and cutting costs. Oilier women helped found nutrition classes so their work in the kitchen might play its part In improving America's health. This year loo, for the first lime, American women took part in u war as voters—and filled bigger jobs in defense than ever before. In the last war they started hampered by long skirts, lout; hair and a lot of hangover restrictions from the- ninot'-fi: hundreds. They concentrated on knitting, nursing and canteens. This time they started with .short hair and short tikirls—and in many cases have worked side by side with men.
