WILLIAMS Has joined the personnel of the CAPITAL BARBER SHOP and invites his friends and customers to visit him CAPITAL BARBER SHOP Industry to Forge Ahead Sees 1942'Burning Fat' Off American Muscles By WILLIAM P. WITIIEROW President, Nnfioiuil Association of Mmmfai'lHi-ers Wrllli'ii fur NKA Service NEW YORK - The year 1042 will burn Ihc last of the fat off the muscles thnl hiive made America great. Not (lint American industry hns much fut left since -1929. From then through 19-10, industry as a whole spent :iO billions of dollars of its reserves to keep going, to keep business alive, to give men jobs. That sacrifice proves now to be one of the strengths of the nation. The fact that during the good years industry had been able to save up some fat on which it ' could live through Ihc bad years proved one of the present strengths of the nation. When the call came to build defense an industry still existed that could go to work speedily and effectively. Now the call is to build armaments and equipment for war, and industry is its very life blood. It will be an aggressive wnr. America, armed by industry, will carry the fight. In the large that will be the whole story of 1942. The basic industries are, whenever possible, going into a 168-hour week. Some have already been able to. It is necessary to find and train new supplies of workers—both men and women. Every factory and every industrialist who can service the basic industries in any way will try to do the same thing. That means all of the sub-contractors on war goods down to the smallest employer whose managerial skill and equipment can help to make a tool. But there is another body of industry. These are the factories which cannot make war goods or any part of any item of war goods, because they do not have and cannot get the equipment. They also have their duty to perform. To the degree that workers are available and to the extent of materials that can be used without interfering in any way with the production of war goods, these factories will work as hard to support American morale as the war industries will work to keep our fighting forces and our allies armed. Americans cannot work without the goods and services to keep their daily lives supplied, any more than fighting men can fight without the ships, tanks, airplanes, guns, small-arms and ammunition to fight with. Since the Fall of France, England has done a truly magnificent job in turning its national industrial plant ovver to war production. But now England has learned that such transformation can be too absolute. The strength of the nation is sapped if supplying the needs of living of the people is cut too fine. There is danger that during 1S142 America may lose its head and repeat England's mistake. We in America must benefit from all the experiences of the last two years in Europe and not repeat the same delaying mistakes in any field of endeavor. This applies to tactics, strategy, armament, government prosecution of the war program. Inflation is already with us. There is no point in chiding Congress for its dilly-dallying with a price control law. The law it toyed with would not have solved much. War conditions demand a price control law that covers all sections and elements of prices including wages, rents, interest and service charges, and agricultural products—which are food. That means sacrifice, but equal sacrifice for everybody. The year 1942 will prove that industry was right in asking for such a law in 1941. Expect New Year To Have No Strikes Industry confidently expects that there will be no defense-crippling strikes during 1942. All America is at war, not just a part of America—at war for its life. Government should seek to make labor laws fair to both employer and employee and thus induce them to settle their differences without strikes in the interest of maximum war production. Industry asks one thing from its fellow Americans during the storms of- 1942. It asks fair play. In return it offers maximum armament production with a minimum of delay. To win the victory of freedom this must be so! OUT OUR WAY PAGE THREE By J. R.

Auto Stoppage Hits Income Rationing of Tires Give Tax Experts Headache By JACK STINNETT WASHINGTON — The rationing of tires and tubes and the drastic reduction in new car production may eventually give the public fallen arches but it already is giving the tax experts on Capitol Hill one of their worst headaches. A quick glance at the revenues anticipated from motor transportation in this country will make this clear. In 1941, the 1M> per cent federal tax on gasoline and lubricating oils was made permanent to give the treasury an estimated revenue of $436,000,000. Tire, tube and other federal vehicle taxes are supposed to yield approximately ?1]G,000,000. The new $5- a-year automobile use tax, slated to become effective February 1, is supposed to bring in around ?1GO,000,000. In other words around three-quarters of a billion dollars was to roll into the treasury coffers in 1942 as •result of taxes on new cars, tires arid fuel. Just how much that is going to be cut is anybody's guess. The revenue won't disappear entirely any more than cars will disappear from the streets and highways, but with the rationing of tires and tubes; the slash in new car production; and the proposed repeal of the use tax, because of the expense and difficulty of collection, the revenue getters in congress are worried a plenty. In their frantic search for new sources of revenue for the next fiscal year, the automobile was to play an important role. It is an open secret that they were eyeing the gasoline and lubricating oil tax for a substantial boost and already were ready to point out to any objectors that England imposes a gasoline lax of around 15 cents a gallon. There also was a plan lo slap a tax on the sales of used cars. Now, with no tires available except on new cars and with new car production cut to one-fourth normal and probably slated fur complete stoppage, congress is faced with two problems. First, an increase in these taxes would fall primarily on those whose cars and trucks arc considered vital to public health and safety. Second, any great increase in tax might cause such a shortage of tarn- sporlation facilities, in sections where buses and trolleys are not available as to disrupt completely the American way of life. The first possibility would be bad enough. Congressmen say ,but the second might be tragic in its results. Consequently, Congres observers are Hollywood Is Practical Now Stars Dress for Relaxation During Wartime By DEE LCWRANCE NEA Service Staff Correspondent HOLLYWOOD — Clothes-conscious Hollywood is really in a dither. If you join the Red Cross you may wear a blue uniform. Other branches of defense work get you khaki. But you can't wear uniforms all the time. Part of your patriotic duty is in what the British call "carrying on." So feminine Hollywood is indulging it r •<" in thoughts of what to wear . other occasions. Mosi of the stars are keeping practicality in mind. Therefore they turn to suits—all the way from spectator sports to dress-maker types. Ensembles, geared to the slight chill of January in California, come next. Some of them, with an eye to being a cheery note on a not-too-cheery horizon, arc going all out and giddy. They choose brilliant colors and sharp contrasts. For instance, Joan Bennett strikes a bright note in a Kelly green wool coat dress, buttoned slantingly down the front with self-dyed wooden buttons and with a wooden belt buckle. Ida Lupino chose fuschia for her soft wool jersey ensemble, high-light- ed with black accessories. Lucille Ball's hyacinth wool coat dress, sports dark blue accessories and, for a surprise accent, she wears with it a bright jade bracelet, pin and ring. Beige is another favored tone for general sports wear. Phillis Brooks wears beige in a tunic suit of lightweight wool with a black bag and gloves. Marlene Dietrich's wool gabardine suit—very mar.nishly tailored—is a rosy tone of beige. Joan Blondell turns to beige, sandy- toned, for her accessories and topcoat with her emerald green dressmaker suit: Beige in what might bo called golden-pheasant tones is the color of Irene Dunne's classically simple tailored tweed suit with which she wears a big-brimmed autumn leaf felt hat trimmed in pheasant tail-feathers. Her alligator bag, pumps and cashmere House Passes Daylight Saying Measure WASHINGTON -(#)- The house passed on a standing vole of G7 lo 20 Friday a daylight saving bill ordering uniform one hour advances of the nation's clocks. The senate previously sweater are a deep tone of warm brown. Suits, Classic in Line, Are Great Favorites Just as classic in line is the three- piece suit Barabara Stanwyck picked for race going. Made of olive green silk gabardine, the slim skirt is box-pleated front and back. The jacket is three-button, with darts at the waist to give a Housed effect. Her long coat is boxy with sunburst tucking at the center back. Her accessories and hat are turf-tan in color. Black is a standby. You can't wean Claudette Colbert from her favorite black corded wool with a slit skirt. Rosalind Russell also picks black wool as do both Greer Garson and Jeannette MacDonad—and all three tend toward the strictly tailored. Winter White also has its place in the fashion sun—already some of the younger stars are ready with new whites to wear when movie-making gives them some free time. Among these are young Judy Garland, Anne Baxter, Maureen O'Hara and Anne Rutherford. The aid of school children as volunteer firemen in Dallas helped cut the /ire rate 50 per cent the first ten months of 1941, as compared with the same period in 1940. Over 390,000 people are employed in the cosmetic industry of the United States.

This loss of millions in revenue is only one of the many critical results of the new priorities restricting the use of motor transportation. It isn't the only thing, however, lhat is worrying Congressmen, government officials and the heads of automobile associations. Another is the lack of concern with which the public has taken announcement of the new priorities. One government official said: "They (the driving public) seem to think we are trying to put over another gasoline shortage scare.' ' Thomas P. Henry, president of the American Automobile Association, says: "Motorists are faced with the stark reality that unless they prolong the life of present cars and tires through careful driving and lower speeds, they will eventually be without individual transportation." The war is hitting home, and aside from those in the armed forces in the battle lines or now being moved into them, thi» motorists of the United States may be the first to realize it.
