HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Monday, January 12,1942 Hikes the osf of Living Pressure of Arms Increases Consumption Iby JOHN L. BECKLEY AsSbcltttcd Press Statistician , YORK—Pressure of arms re' quirements and increased consump- - tion arising from employment and larger pay rolls, brought a substantial * Increase in the general price level, ' particularly in foods, during 1941. ,The cost of living, involving as it does many relatively stable or slow '' moving items such as rent, fuel and . light, insurance and others, has made ' no such advance as wholesale material prices, and still remains, according to , the National Industrial Conference ' Board's statistics, well under 1929. In fact under the entire period of 1918'30. Nontheless, booming prices this year : brought ceilings on a whole range of '< materials by Price Administrator Henderson, and protracted debate in , ^Congress on new price control leg" .islation to implement the operations of > -Henderson's organization. As long , ,ago as July, Henderson said: ."Before long now, there will bo more purchasing power running 1 around hunting something to buy than there are goods available. If that occurs to a substantial degree, i * no power on earth can prevent in' flatten." / For many workers at least, wage ? rates have increased much more rap- 'idly than the cost of living. While the conference board's index of liv- . ing costs for wage earners, as report- 4 ed for November, is up 10.6 per cent from August, 1939, the Boards' cal;, dilation of average hourly wage rates in 25 manufacturing industries from August, 1939, to last October, showed , a jump of 18.5 per cent. Living costs were still above 7 per cent under the average for 1929, ac' cording to these calculations, while hourly wage rates in the 25 industries were up 44 per cent from 1929. Those with fixed incomes, mainly white collar workers, however, were ifeeling the pinch of rising prices •IsVourDauqhteK* Popular?

PERKISON'S JEWELRY STORE 218 South Walnut The following article is the first of a series released by the Hempstead civilian defense council explaining the organization's purposes: Its Purpose 1'. To recruit men and women volunteers for civilian defense and to recommend them to local civilian defense programs an destablished community agencies who services need to be expanded. 2. To strengthen morale through the satisfaction which will come to civilian volunteers—those with much leisure and those with little—by doing useful community work. Its Functions 1. To discover and promote opportunities for volunteers in the following types of local programs: Civilian protection programs. Federal and state programs in the fields of health, family security, recreation, social protection, child welfare, and education. Programs of established public community agencies and those of private agencies accredited locally. | Other local programs such as in- i formation services to men in uniform and defense industry workers and their families; USD programs; consumer information; salvage programs; promotion of the sale of defense savings bonds, etc. American unity programs such as intergroup good will; safe-guarding civil liberties; adult education; patriotic rallies, exhibits, etc. Programs in liaison with war relief organizations. 2. To serve as a clearing house for programs of training by— Findings out what training is needed, what is already being offered, and keeping up-to-date records of available courses. 2. Making arrangements for needed additional courses. 3. To coordinate the recruiting and enrollment of all men and women volunteers without supplanting the recruiting already being done by such agencies as the Red Cross and city departments, merely asking them to clear with the Volunteer Office. Arrangements should be made to use all volunteers who have been trained j by responsible existing private wel- ' fare and health agencies. 4. To interview volunteers and re fer them to training or jobs suited to their individual capabilities. 5. To maintain standards of volunteer service in the various local programs using volunteers. 6. To report quarterly to the local Defense Council or to the United States Director of Civilian Defense when he requests such information, the number of volunteers placed in the various local programs or in raining courses and the number of lours of service rendered. The purpose of Volunteer Offices is the same regardless of the size and ype of community and the functions /ary only insofar as the present or absence of organized facilities neces- itates.

Hellrich, above. chance, construction men say, that home units costing as much as ?7,000 to $7,500 shortly may be permitted under defense housing priorities, for at many points material and labor costs are rising, and some builders are finding it difficult to erect a satisfactory dwelling for less than 56,000. Because of war home building is not likely to fold up entirely. About 52,000,000,000 of low-cost defense housing in 1942 seems in the cards, as a minimum. Some circles estimate defense housing may rise ever to $2,500,000,000 or more as arms production doubles and triples, massing more new factory workers in industrial areas. In the public works field, erecting of new post offices, federal buildings, county court houses and municipal structures may be the lowest in modern history. Materials simply will not be permitted to flow into such structures. However, more industrial plant construction is expected than was antici pated a month or so ago. President Roosevelt, in his December 10 address to the nation, declared we must "rush additions to the capacity of production by building more new plants, by adding to old plants."

Home Building Drops in War Twenty-Five Per Cent Reduction Seen for 1942 NEW YORK— (fP)— Regimenting of copper, steel and other strategic materials for armaments will bring a sharp contraction in new building construction in 1942, all trade signs indicate. Standard & Poor's statistical agency, building a forecast on F. W. Dodge Corp. reports of construction contracts in 37 states, predicts that total new building awards may aggregate only 54,500,000,000 in those states in 1942. This would be a reduction of roughly 25 per cent under the 56,000,000,000 of awards in the surveyed states in 1941, although nearly 5500.000.00C greater than the 54,003,000,000 for 1940 War requirements may bring further curtailment. Biggest dollar volume reduction will be in residential construction where at the present time only de fense houses costing 56,000 or less ge the "green light" on delivery of ma terials.

New Firm Is Good Business Head Turns Equipment Into War-Boom Business By JACK DEVLIN NEA Service Stuff Correspondent NEW YORK—Blackout is the business of a firm that is hitting the jackpot here in the wake of Uncle Sam's entry into war. People who thought is was a gag 14 months ago when Melvin Wolff announced with u straight face that he had founded the Defense Blackout & Camouflage Co., now have to stand in line at his mid town office or wait their turn on the telephone to place their orders. Wolff just c.m't handle all of the business although he is expanding his facilities as fast as he can. As the name of his concern implies, Wolff deals in the business of making your home, office or industrial plant light-tight so enemy bombers won't be able to see signs of life on the ground below. Non-Reflecting Paint The trick is usually accomplished by one of two means. The more popular system is to make a wooden frame, that fits inside each window, and cover it with tightly woven black cloth. The frame, which fits snugly all around the window, can be lifted out during daytime hours to let the light in. The second system is to cover the outside of all window panes with a special type of paint which Wolff says is guaranteed to have such a dull finish that it will not glare or give a reflection in the moonlight. The same type paint, but in different colors, is used on the roofs of factories to make them blend in with surrounding terrain and serve as a camouflage. He also uses a system of tacking or nailing black cloth to the walls all around windows and, while it is loss expensive, it is not so practicable if light is to be let in during *he day. Business at the Defense Blackout & Camouflage Co. coasted along rather slowly until the United Stjtos declared war and air-raid warnings began to shrill on the Pacific and At- .lantic coasts. "Since then my phones have been running me bowlegged and people have almost been storming the place," declared Wolff, a middle-aged former bond trader whose only othir previous business experience was importing and manufacturing costume jewelry until things went "pfft" in 1932. He said he tired of the grind of bond trading and then the defense program came booming along. Wolff, who still has a soft spot in his heart for the old days when he manufactured jewelry, decided he wanted to "produce something." The bombing of London and Europe's blackout problems appealed to him and he became interested in the problem. After rounding up all the nformation he could find, Wolff aunched his new business. He also sells portable pumps for putting out ncendiary bombs, hoes and pans for raking them up; asbestos gloves and miscellaneous odds and ends for cop- ng with danger from above. In addition, Wolff has figured out :rick lighting systems for illuminat- ng store display windows safely during blackouts. One is a flourscent 'black light" whch llumnatcs dsplay- ed artcles after they have been coated with a special paint.
