ur Daily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor Alex. H. Washburn Scronton, Pa. Has Nothing on Hope, Ark. A week-end Associated Press , story from Scranton, Pa., tells how that city did some fancy industrial promoting when its anthracite fields played out. Scranton and Wilkes-Barro. 18 miles aoart, are the bis cities at the hard coal section, but the minim* ren'er has bacn creeping southward for years — finally leaving Scran'on, northernmost town, stranded. Thn AP tolls .us that two years ago the P"0plr> nf pnrnn'nn InnnoVi- ed their "Scranton Bond" venting, peddling these investments in the town's future to all the people in denominations from $100 un to $10,000 — for a grand total of one million dollars. With Hu's mon^y Scranton went out and fonnrlprl n""industries, one of which was an old war plant, now converted to the manufacture of stoves, kitchen cabinets and sinks. Th" AP says So-nnton is doing all richt these days. Well, there are two sides to the industrial promotion story. Years ago while in Pennsylvania on a visit from Arkansas I was told by n past, president of Wilk«s-'Rirre Chamber of Commerce (hat Wilkcs- Dp.rrc had promoted Gfi different industrial venture-; tr, .j~' i,,••>-. from the "one crop" industrial system of hard coal — and on'v one of the GO succeeded.

Thirty-seven men had regis tnred for tho draft up to 2:30 o'clock today, the Hempstead County Draft Board announced.

Starts On Rond of Shipping Recoverv By JAMES THRASHER The last American-built, Arncri- eanoperaled passenger ship was launched in 1940. In the five following years this country's shipbuilding industry attained the greatest size and productivity in our history. But few of the wartime vessels are used or usable today, and none of them, of course is any thing like a luxury liner. So when the war was over three or four European countries had a big jump on America in carrying a bumper crop of passengers. America's deficiency worried people in the shipping business for three ' reason:;: the U, S. was missing! out on a lot of revenue: it was' leaving itself vulnerable, in a time j of uneasy peace, to a serious lack ! of fast transports in the event of ; an overseas war; and it was dis- ! sipating the skilled nucleus of a ''• vital industry through Jack of work. ! For three years ther« was iivr-i- mittcnt concern over the situation. Ihe President appointed a fact-finding group, the Keller Committee, i to look into our shipping needs. The committee presented a long, detailed list of recommendations. Nothing much came of them. A couple of bills to revive the shipbuilding industry were introduced to Congress. Nothing was clone about thf-m, either. Then the other day American Export Lines signed a contract with the Bethlehem Steel Co. For two fast passenger liners. They will be used in the shipping company's Mediterranean servirc. and will cost at least $46,f!30.0()0. The log jam of inaction was broken not by executive or legislative decree, but by the efforts of individuals. Credit is due the member of the Maritime Commission and John E. Water, executive vice president of American Export for the start. Af( r Mr. Slater persuaded the commission to increase the subsidy to 45 per cent, the member:, simply put to use the powers and money they already had. In two days work on the new ships was under way, although the kecis will not be hud until spring. It remains to be- se-'n whether the 45 per cent subsidy will serve as the financial pattern for a revival of our pass-jnger shipbuilding industry. But it does seem certain that it provided the impetus ( which will start some wheels turning, at 1-jasl. Meanwhile, the first 'wo contracts carry with them tome very tangible benefits. They will give 2-1.; W) W)0 hours of work to 5000 shiplveH-"--- f ( v •>••; n\<-"i1hs. When completed the ships will over long-term emplnvnv.-nt tu 1100 officers and men' of th" Merchant M<"- ; no.

Vets to Be Drafted Only in Emergency By Harley Pershing Hot Springs, Aug. 30 —(/P)—The national draft director said here today that veterans of World War II can expect to go back into service if there is another emergency. Maj. Gen. Lewis B. Hersey, selective service head, added however that recalling of ex-servicemen will not come until the present supply of I8-25-ycar-old non-veterans has been exhausted. At the same time he declared married men in the l'd-25 category now deferred can expect to go into sorvx-c "almost immediately if there is an emergency." General Hcrshey, here to speak this afternoon at the national encampment of the uniform rank woodmen of the world, answered ouestions on the new peacetime draft at a news conference. He was to speak Ir.ter in the day on the selective service system the speech lo be broadcast by the American Broadcasting Company. General Hcrshey made it clear '-hat he thought tne veterans should be called back into the armed forces "at an early date in order I hat thi"-~ men may serve as a nucleus for the expanding armed forces. General Hcrshey said that "we would be smart if we use the veterans now lor the light work and .'he new draftees would be in the Held" rather than to have non- veterans in the army now and then have the veterans clo the lighting again if there is another war. He added that he did not bc-lieve "there would be another war if thi; United States were strong enough to resist any attack." "Our strength must be so great that our defeat would be so costly .to an attacking nation that war : would be out of the question, i 'I am not a militarist but I do ihink that our nation's defense should be the primary issue to every American citixen. We will jail need to know how to defend | ourselves if there is another war." ! The general inspected a Garland i county draft board, where the 25- 'Vfar-oUis were registering. He will leave here tomorrow for St. Louis, •: where ho will speak at the national convention of the Veterans ; ul' Foreign Wars. The subpoena was served by a committee investigator, at a hearing Peters said:' "I don't know. I will have to consult rriy counsel " Mrs. Carol King, his attorney, said her client was now under jurisdiction of tho immigration service which would have to say whether he could go lo the Un- American Activity group's session.

All of the inductees will be taken into the army since no request was made for men by the navy or the air force. The announcement made' by Secretary of Defense Forrestal said that the navy and the air force do not expect to need any draftees during the fiscal year July 1948— through June. 1948. Announcement of the first draft call was made public also in St. Louis by army chief of «raff general Omar'Bradley.

Each state and territory is given credit for persons already in the military service in setting up Ihe quotas of men to bo inducted. The military departments are now preparing these figures, but in the meantime the selective service will estimate the number of persons already in service lo be credited to each state.
