Such appointments will be good only until six months fater the end of the war and employes serving under "war service appointments" won't be given full civil service status. Maximum age limits are being lifted except in special cases. The President's order also directed a cut in red tape of supplying and transferring workers to war-impotant agencies. To this end, the Commission hfas set itself up as cental clearing house and recruiting agency for all offices under civil service. (Exceptions are FBI, TVA, WPA, NYA and Farm Seurity Administration).

Melvyn Douglas, appointment as director of the unfortunately named "War Council of the Arts,, in OCD was something else. Douglas himself had the original idea on this booking office for actor-writer-musician talent and came to Washington to sell the idea to anyone who would, listen. The movie star had no idea of doing the job himself, but when he explained it to Dean James M. Landis, then executive director and now director of OCD, Landis presuaded Douglas to stay and do the job himself. Incidentally, other defense agencies like the idea—though not the name—of this Arts Council for the reason It takes off their necks the job of finding something for all this volunteer talent to do.

For an Air Attack National Geographic Society Wastes No Time By JACK STINNETT WASHINGTON-In this sea of civilian defense unpreparedness called the national capital, there is one little "island" where the inhabitants have done their job so well that the effort is worth reporting. It is the National Geographic Society, national headquarters of which fill the five-story building at Sixteenth and M, a few blocks north of the While House. When the call came for organization of civilian defense, Dr. Gilbert Grosv'enor, president of the society, decided cooperation in the district and area civilian, defense programs wasn't exactly complete. He set some of his bright young men to survey the building and work out an air raid protection service. The result is just about as near perfect protection from death from the sky as any five-story building could summon up. Probably only thai million-to-one shot, a head-on hit from p demolilion bomb could cause move than a scratch to any of the society's 22fi employes and officers or more than quickly reparable damage to the building or its valuable archives. One designated employe and his assistant warning wardens are constantly on the alert for an air raid warning. One of these pushes a button and three blasts sound on seven automobile horns located throughout the building. Within two and a half minutes (the time I was checking) the 226 employes and officials of the society are assembled in the basement cafeteria, all valuable records, manuscripts, and photos have been trundled into a bombproof, fireproof vault, and the society's auxiliary police, firemen, airplane spotters, first aid nurses, and so on are at their stations. The society's quarter of a million unpublished photographs and originals of 38,000 published pictures are locked in a fireproof vault. Sandbags are going up against the swinging doors that lead to the many- windowed kitchen. Monk's cloth is being fastened securely over glass pun- els in other doors. Out of the back windows that formerly opened on un alley, one now sees a 16-inch brick wal Ithal reaches well above the win- clows and protects against bomb fragments. In a specially built room nearby are all conceivable supplies for use in blackouts, firefighting and ers to war production. "Over-conversion" is one of the dangers of this work, as machinist Knowlson sees it. For instance, locomotives have A-3 priorities, tanks A- 1, but if all the locomotive plants are converted to tank manufacture, what happens when We need more locomotives? writer industry can be converted 100 per cent to War production but it seems that even the Army and Navy and most certainly Washington wouldn't be able to win the war with typewriters. Knowlson admits the conversion effort has been critized for lack of speed. A case can therefore be made, he says, to give makers of typewriters A-l-a priorities so as to produce, more "critical articles." And he admits thas's a rotten pun, too. Here is one confidential but auth- orilive prediction of how prices may rise this year: Non-durable goods (foods, fuel, etc,) up 15 per cent. Durable goods (hardware, furnishings etc.-, up 18 per cent, but there may be a drop of as much as GO per cent in the total dollar volume of sales through inability to get merchandise to sell. Services (rent, electritity, etc.-, up 5 per. cent. Bikes for Victory ' Don't look for the immediate production of those "Victory" model automobiles, tires, refrigerators and such stuff. The victory model idea, you'll-recall, is to provide an economical, standard design article which one manufacturer would be aulhorizer one manufacturer would be aulhorized for sale by dealers of all manufacturers. The present theory is to produce two-year stockpiles of all these civilian goods items on which there may be shortages. Replacement sales will be made on a rationing basis from these stockpiles in this period. The victory models will be the next step when the stockpiles are gone, or nearly gone. First, and almost the only industry to get together on a victory model, was the bicycle trade. It took the step voluntarily as a sales promotion idea, and not at government suggestion. Officials of the National Highway User's Conference have called attention to a surprizing 140 per cent in- jntm over u periou or several years cl 'ease in federal automobive taxes because he was "too tired" to deliver I collected by the Internal Revenue it. ) Bureau in January, 1942, as compared with January, 1941—?83 million for this year as against ?34 million last year. Some $17 million of the increase can be accounted for by tne motor vehicle tax, which wasn't on the books last year. The big item which causes the most surprize, however, comes from the increase of federal gasoline taxes which jumped $14 million to a total of ?37 million. When you try to explain this, you run into some strange things. The federal gasoline tax is paid at the refinery. Gas manufactured for use of the Army and Navy is exempt.'Part of the increase has gone into refinery stocks and storage against possible shortages later on, but the monthly figures on gasoline consumption over Die past six months show that instead of going down from the July-August peak, as it usually does, civilian consumption has risen every single month over the month preceding. Instead of cutting down on automobile use in the face of auto and tire shortages, the public has ben increasing its use of gasoline. What that means, ultimately, unless the trend is checked, is that when rubber and automobile . and gas shortages really begin .to pinch, the effects on everyday -civilian life are going to hurt just that much harder. case of a former postman.
