Hope, Arkansas production in some form—possibly just the building up of a huge bank bank of parts—as soon as walls and roof were up on a limited section of a new building, j Problems Overcome This practice has enabled thc industry engineers to overcome many technical problems wholly different from those encountered in the routine of developing annual new automobile models. As one of the leading industry engineers summarized the problems: "Miliary products aren't regular products; airplane engines aren't car engines, caterpillar treads aren't wheels; machine gun mountings aren't rumble seats and cannons just aren't windshield wipers." But the industry is meeting its problems. The machine tool puzzle is the only thing at present delaying an even greater production volume—and that one's benig met, too, under a program that contemplates the application to arms output of every piece of production machinery in the industry, no matter who owns the equipment. After the War? Another long-range problem the industry will attempt to meet only when it comes to it. That's the question of what will happen after the war. Whether the auto industry can pick up where it Jeft off—after building peace-tune transportation for more ,han four decades—will depend upon i number of factors, the industry's big-wigs say. The buying power available at the time is the No. 1 factor, and that's something "we cannot appraise at this lime; none of us knows how long the war will last nor what it will take out of earning capacity. How long the post-war re-conversion job will take depends greatly on what kin dof a car the market will require. Engineering authorities agree they will learn much from aircraft work which may be adaptable to the post-war automobile—if the economy of the time can accept such a highly refined vehicle. Whether thc automobile or aircraft industry will profit most from thc affiliation thrust upon the two by the war is another question on which neither branch will venture an opinion. Right now, the job is to turn out armament. And right now, more ana more every day, that's what is being done.

Robert A. Hurley protested today to President Roosevelt against what he charged was an unpublicized and "utterly undemocratic" method of making Army commissions available to certain youths, who thus would "possibly avoid the rigors of selective training and combatant service." The governor, a Democrat, asserted in a letter to the president that a situation which "in my opinion gravely endangers the democratic foundations' of the selective service system hac been created by the appointment "in the several New England states o committees of so-called "civilian aides" to the chief of the Air Corps." The governor charged that "these committees apparently operate as screen to sift applicants for commis sions" although "no publication of their functions and methods have been made, and the public in general is unaware of their activities." Union Flayed by New Dealer Thurmon Arnold ' Soys Country Is in Their Grasp WASHINGTON-^)—Attacking organized labor in terms seldom, if ever, used by a New Deal official, Thurman Arnold, assistant attorney general, accused the unions over the week-end of a long list of misdeeds which he asserted were preventing efficient use of men and machines and hampering distribution of civilian necessities. He charged organized labor wilh injuring or destroying independent business men, and holding farmers and consumers "at its mercy," of impeding distribution of housing and food, and of "undemocratic procedures" within itself. On the witness stand of the House Judiciary Committee, Arnold said a pending bill to require registration of labor unions was inadequate to protect the public from the practices which he alleged. "No other group in our society" could do anything like the things of which he complained and escaped punishment, he said. "Today, under federal law, there is no right of the farmer which labor s bound to respect, there is no right of the consumer which labor is bound o respect, and there is no right of he small business man which labor is round to respect," he asserted. Arnold said all three groups were 'entirely subject to the will of the ,abor union. "People complain to us and we have to say to them that ;here is nothing we can do." Arnold ,s in charge of anti-trust prosecutions for the Justice Department. He said state'laws did not meet the situation; even if an employer was successful in obtaining an injunclion against a labor organization, the labor Prescotl News By HELEN HESTERLY Telephone 163 Monday, Morch SI, If 41^. clny, were: Miss Francos Qiithrie, Poinclexter Wliitnkcr nncl Tim Me- Lelland.

Do your part to eliminate the widespread evils of malnutrition in America. Buy right! Cook right! Eat right! A MODERN GAS RANGE WILL AID IN STRETCHING WAR-TIME DOLLARS Is there a shortage of seeds for Victory Gardens? This question was answered at a meeting of the Victory Garden Committee of the Chicago Metropolitan Defense Area by James A. Young, executive secretary of the American Seed, Trade Association in a very positive manner. "You have only to go to the place where you usually buy your garden seeds in order to learn that anything you ask for is available," he said. "In a great majority of cases not even the prices have advanced for the quantities which are purchased by home gUrdeners." The meeting at which this assurance was given by Mr. Young had been called by George T. Donoghue, who has been placed in charge of the Victory Garden campaign for the Office of Civilian Defense of the Chicago Metropolitan Defense district, which includes the city and much adjoining territory. "The garden seed trade is accustomed to carry large reserves of !>eed," said Mr. Young. "There is always the possibility of a crop failure, and to protect the country from a food shortage in such event, the Uadc usually has en band enough to supply a one-year demand even though none were grown at all. "This custom has proved a real protection under the conditions now prevailing. There were partial crop failures in some things, while our usual sources of supply for other varieties were shut off by war. Without any assistance from the government, the seed growers of the country have made extraordinary efforts to overcome all handicaps, and I take great pride in reporting that after providing large quantities of seeds for export to our allies, there will be plenty left to plant Victory Gardens and grow Food for Freedom. "Naturally the normal 2-ycar reserves carried by thc trade have been depleted, but at this time there is no reason to fear that these will not be replenished from crops of which many are already growing. "Seeds for home gardens, both on farms and in urban and suburban areas, have been distributed to or 1 set aside for the mail order houses, seed stores, hardware stores, department stores, and other retail outlets throughout the country that customarily handle seeds. This can easily be verified by inquiry at your usual source of sufiply.". ....
