THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, lUJNOIS TUESDAY, JUNE 19, 1951 WASBINGTON Cdunn BV PBIBB ED80N NEA WMblactM CormpoBdent KxMct New DlSalle Order To Break Tool Bottleneck W ASHINGTON — (NEA) — Office of Price otabilizatioh Director Miciiael C. DiSalle is momentarily expectef to hand down a new machine tool pricing order. When it is on the boolts, • the last major bottleneck on machine tool production is expected to be broken. And repetition of the World War Two cnsis . over machine tool shortages is expected to be avoided. America's 700 machine tool builders were caught in a tight jam by the OPS manufacturers : general price ceiling order. This order was issued April 24, ef- . fective May 28. It set ceiling prices at the level of the first half of 1950. on aU manufactures. Machine tool prices in effect then were based on orders placed in 1949. There was a marked business recession on then. Orders were few and prices were comparatively low. The machine topi shortage did not begin to develop with the outbreak of the Korean war, a year ago. It was fall before 'the defense mobilization program began to roll. By that time there were shortages on materials and li soaring prices all over the place. Most of the machine tool manufacturers are small companies. The only way they can get increased production is to put on extra shifts, pay overtime and premium wages, or sub-contract for parts production. All these things increase costs by 15 per cent or more. That's where the ' tool makers got hit hardest by the price freeze. It has taken more than a month to work out an order for the machine tool industry that will stabilize prices, stimulate production and cover increased manufacturing costs, all at the same time. Yet it has been done. And it is hoped that it will keep the , industry and its customers reasonably happy. Overcome Other Handicaps Other bottlenecks that have hindered machine tool production have been or are being cleared. Giving the tool makers all the scarce materials they required was handled by a series of Defense Production Administration allocations and priorities. Tlie labor supply of skilled tool makers is still tight. From 31,000 employes in 1939, the industry was built up to a peak of 123.000 in 1942. It dropped to 36,000 in December 1949. Today it is over the 55,000 mark. It takes three years to train a tool maker from apprenticeship, 'and more years are required for experienced experts. But the tool industry should soon be able to recruit additional workmen as au- ;tomobiIe and other civilian hard "goods production is cut back. One of the principal methods •for increasing machine tool production will be to license new ;manufacturers. An established ^tpol making company, for instance, uill license a company now making automobiles to make •certain machines—lathes, grinders, or boring machines in greatest demand. By this' licensing iiystem. the industry will not be iiver-expanded. When the emer- Ifcepcy is over, the auto maker ^11 still have his regular business for normal demand. Knancing greater machine tool Manufacture is being handled .through government V-loans. Al- iJW, General Services Administration is giving the tool makers government pool orders. They insure 3>roduction of most-needed ma- i^hines. And the government guarantees to buy any unsold ma- jihines at a 17% per cent discount, " If the mobilization demand should fnd suddenly. Government pool |)rders insure sales and deliveries fjto essential defense producers only. The government's huge stock- *ile of machine tools, held as an Industrial reserve after the last Swar, has now practically all been put ih service. It has been a tre- READY FOR ENDURANCE TES T —Old and new autos line up at Princeton, Mass.. for two-mile climb UD Mt. Wachusett AU cars made it except • foreirn-built 1951 oiodel.

Principal demand for new machine tools now is ror the manufacture of newer weapons. These include jet engines, the new tanks, guided missi;<js' and electronics equipment. Production Increased The present emergency calls for nothing like the expansion in World War II. In 1939 it wai SUB million. By 1942, the peak year, it was $1,321 million—an SOO per cent increase. Production in 1950 was valued at $295 million. This \ear it may be more than doubled 'c SS650 million output. This is only half the 1942 rate of production. It may go higher in 1952. And an all-out war would of course make it soar. Present backlog of ordei*s is now estimated at a billion dollars. But one thing the industry wants to a\oid is over- expansion now, followed by j-iard times again after the defense mobilization emergency ends. Would Induct College Students Before Tests By Associated Press WASHINGTON. June 19.—Senator Paul Douglas (D-Ill.) suggested last night that college students be inducted into the Armed Forces before they are allowed to take intelligence tests for further college training. In a recorded radio broadcast for Illinois. Douglas said: '•Personally. 1 think those selective tests should be given in the camo rather than in the colleges, so that we do not send poor boys into the service while well-to-do boys are exempted. Similarly, I do not think that those who make higher intelligence scores than the others should be totally exempted from the duty of deiending their country." The students may take the tests under the direction of Selective Service but draft boards are not required to consider the intelligence scores in granting or denying military defei'nients. Douglas said he favoi's having the military services rather than draft boards decide tbe qualifications for further college training "even though that calls for a government scholastic program."

By AtMcUtwl PrtM EFFINGHAM. 111., June 19. — A plea for help written on a scrap of jxjper has about been written off by State Police as a practical joke, but they still want to talk to the man who said he saw it tossed from a car. Barely legible, the not appeared to be in a child's handwriting. It read: "Call the police. I am in danger. Urgent." It was turned over to the highway patrol by a truck driver. He said he got it from a hitch-hiker who reported it was tossed fiom a west-bound car at Altamont on U. S. Highway 40 yesterday about 15 minutes before*the incident was reported to State Police. Three roadblocks were set up for about three hours, at points west of Altamont on Highway 40. Highway Patrol Lieutenant Kenneth Moore said he was certain the car, said to have a Pennsylvania license plate and carrying two men, a woman, and a child, didn't get past the roadblocks. It might have turned off on Highway 128 just west of Altamont, he said. Written By Child "After seeing the note, 1 decided it must have been a practical joke." Moore said. He added it might have been written by some child who didn't realize what he was doing. Moore said highway repairs had slowed traffic on Highway 40 west of Altamont and that if anyone in the car was in trouble, someone should have noticed it. The identity of the man who gave the note to the truck driver had not been learned. State Police said they would like to question him..

The needle does it in 48 hours compared to other methods which takes two weeks to a month. It takes a m'*ichine to do the needling. Both machine and method were invented, and reported by the engineering department of Kingan and Company, Indianapolis. The machine carries one hundred needles. They cover a big flat like u bristly brush, each needle at a scientifically calculated distance from its neighbors. On an endless belt conveyor beneath the needles bacon bellies are spread flat. The conveyor stops whi e the needles are pressed down long enough for them to force some curing pickle juice into the bason tissues. Then the needles lift and the hypo-trcctcd slab moves on. More than two tons an hour can be needled. ^reat jFiguresi in ^Religion 0.
