A»RANJAS Civil Defense in Air Patrol OCD Move Sailing Along Toward Effective Group By JACK STINNETT WASHINGTON — With all (he controversy and criticism over dancers, movie actors, unnecsssary frills and what-not in the Off'te of Civilian Defense, very little has been written ubout the Civil Air Patrol, but it's at least one division of OCD that is sailing along toward effective organ- I ization. More than 24,000 pilots, from students who hug the wheel of a flyin? ialopy on up to graybeards who gut her start in the old crates of pie- World War I days and now can wall; a four-motored transport through a uirricane, have enlisted in CAP Nearly 17,500 have been certified by- Washington and now are active in his service which includes everything >om disaster relief to patrol and messenger duties for the armed forces. The Texas wing of CAP has a lying ambulance. In Seattle, one enlistee is a parachute surgeon who can land with a folding operating able and all the necessary surgical nstruments for emergency operations. He has two trained assistants who can hit the ground just as quickly as he does. One recent step taken by the national organization is the installation of punch-card index system and a "mechanical brain." Previously, demands on the CAP were sufficiently localized that wing and group commanders could fill requests from personal knowledge of the abilities of pilots under their direction. Now, the organization and the services it performs have outgrown that system. Suppose there was a hurry-up call for a man who could pilot a two- motor plane, fly blind over coastal areas, speak Dutch and manipulate an aerial camera. CAP officials here would feed the personnel cards into "mechanical brain" which sorts them at the rate of 400 a minute. In no time at all, they would have a handful of cards for the pilots with those accomplishments, select the one nearest the point of request and have him on the way to his assignment within an hour. No organization, however, is perfect. CAP is at the moment having its own little storm of internal strife. The momentous question is whether the CAP women's uniorm shall be slacks or a culotte. ^ A leader of the slack action says: "Slacks are more practical and less incumbering to girls climbing in and out of planes and wearing parachutes. Slacks and jodhpurs have always been the costumes of women flyers." One of the culotte backers says"Most girls look horrible in slacks, unless they are Powers models. Why not at least include culottes as optional." Acting supply officer Harry R. Playford is perplexed. He'll be happy to pass the buck to any one who wants it. differentials, having been Won in the coal industry and started in the aluminum industry, will be pushed where- ever the unions think they're strong enough to put it over. And on the same basis, there will be increasing demands for uniform wage scales within whole industries on a broader basis, to eliminate competition for labor between plants. On the legislative front, the labor lobbyists think they have side-tracked the Smith anti-strike bill, though (hey realize it can be hold over the head like an administration club, to be pulled out if labor gets out of hand. Biggest pro-labor measure the lobby works for is to increase unem* ployment compensation for workers displaced temporarily through conversion of plants to war production. Edson in Washington Labor Strengthens Its Capital Control M\ WASHINGTON - Whether you® ft**! 9 *"? '* or not anc * whether it means p, 1 'anything to you or not, organized tlabor in Washington has beome one ^ of the mast potent forces in the cap% Jtal. Labor is now so influential that r it has maneuvered itself to the bus__ toess end of a pipeline right to the i ^President which, in the words of C I ( '"O. President Philip Murray, "per- niits the labor groups to acquire direct contact with the White House * r on all matters pertaining to labor , work in the war effort." Vehicle for this direct communica- ' turn is the Combined Labor War fi Board of A. F. of L. and C. I. O representatives. The name was chos- v en by the President, who has paid -, tribute to the committee by saying it Was the kind of group which could 'I, sit around a table, take off their ^ coats, call each other by their first ;' 4 names and talk things over. Murt'??y has declared that the President f l suggested the committee was creat- ,> 'ed to consult with him periodic-ally ^roii "all matters" concerning labor's CPSrticipation in the war. | The "all matters" Murray assumes -*to include living standards, housing J legislative standards, labor unity, and . ? greater degree of participation in ^.^pertammg to the conduct of the war 6iV* thlnk this is the g^atest vic- t tory thdt labor has achieved since the .•- Jsegjnning of the defense effort," says Murray, who has therefore renamed . as ABCD to identify are toe four flags joined here in one '^tnner symbolizing the unity of ; Ajnerican. British, Chinese and gylc-h forces fighting the Japanese ifi the Pacific. Nanka gij^tgn of San Francisco, holds "j}je red, white and blue emblem. it "Labor's Victory Board " Business Pays Tribute Labor leaders are not the only ones who boast of their new power. Washington representatives of some of the big industries pay tribute to the labor lobby, saying privately that it is too smart, that it has not made a single mistake in tactics since the defense effort began. Disruption of the old OPM and the first mediation board are pointed to as evidence of the lobbys' power. If that's true in any degree, there may be some point in trying to enumerate some of the objective of the labor movement in this war effort There is no official tablet of stone to list these aims, for there is as yet no real A. F. of L.-C. I. O. unity. But day after day the labor headquarters in Washington put out their statements of approval on these measures of congress or administrative orders — or their disapproval — and from these statements and from the resolutions of executive board meetings a fairly clear picture can be drawn. At the head of the list labor leaders put "union security." This is in reality a broad term for the closed shop or the union shop and the maintenance of the national labor relations act, wages and hour alw, and all the other federal legislation now on the books to protect trade union practices, including the 40-hour week and extra over-time compensation. Second is a drive for increased wages and opposition to all forms of wage freezing for duration of the war. This objective is stated as maintenance of the "living standards of the workers . . . threatened by the spiraling cost of living and increased taxes on low income groups," but it is simply a national policy of demanding substantial wage increases in all negotiations. A. F. of L. has gone further to suggest automatic increases as living costs rise. Seeks More Say-So On the war production program, labor can be counted upon to ask for more authority. Labor leaders say they ae not interested in having a share of management as such, but this is stated largely to counter claims of management that labor should not "'" erfere " in management because labor doesn't know anything about management. Labor resolutions state this aim behind a lot of words in asking for labor participation in the prosecution of trie war by affording labor direct representation and complete participation within the administrative machinery responsible for obtaining (he production of munitions of wai." What this means is more of the Murray industry plan, more, Keuther plans for every war industry. JUimin:ilion of north-south wage Barbs The Catawaba Indian tribe has declared war on Germany. They must have seen that long lock of hair down over Hitler's eyebrow. The war will make women's hnts more sensible, says a millinery designer.
