WEDNESDAY, APRIL 15, 1942 BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS EDSONIN WASHINGTON Patches And Pieces Harlequin Accessories By PETER EDSON Courier News Washington £ Correspondent ~ WASHINGTON, April 15.—The Guthrie case—remember it?—will get its second and official airing in a few days, this time before the Truman committee investigating national defense. Robert R. Gut^rie of New York and Paducah, Ky., will himself be the first witness and he will again be 'invited to explain how and why he resigned after serving ssven months on his dollar-a-year job as head of the textile, clothing and leather goods branch of the War Production Board. There he battled for speedier conversion,.of the radio, refrigerator, wool, cotton duck and nylon industries from civilian to war goods manufacture. Guthrie told this story in mid- March to a subcommittee of the Houss Military Affairs Committee headed by Rep. Charles I. Faddis of Waynesburg, Pa. The Faddis committee, kicked the ball around for several days, then recessed. It isn't through with the Guthrie case yet. and will call in more witnesses before making any report. A third investigation of the Guthrie case is the War Production Board's own probe, being conducted on Donald M. Nelson's order by the WPB chief counsel, John Lord O'Brian. Nelson has indicated that I the O'Brian report is about com- Lftleted but won't be made public ^[>nless the Truman committee wants to give it out. The Guthrie case has therefore! become a three-headed calf and | like all post-mortems on Washing- j ton monstrosities, it isn't likely to prove much beyond the fact that it died a horrible death and it is dead. NELSON DID IT Th2 ghost of the Guthrie case is officially laid by Nelson's ne\v orders prohibiting the use of iron and steel in hundreds of civilian durable goods items, and confining new construction to defense work. Those two orders signify that American durable good? industries are now well on their way to total conversion to war production and therefore all this confusion stirred up by the Guthrie case is a lot of stuff over the thing.' What started out to be a surging flood of expose on the slowness and unwillingness of private business to convert to war effort now dries down to a mere ugly wet spot on the record of mistakes that have, gone before. That happens so often. In the cm-rent rubber investigation, it looked at the beginning as though an attempt were being made to hang on Secretary' ,of Commerce Jesse Jones full responsibility for American failure to build sufficient stockpiles of raw native rubber ov " £r Tmrra DEITHS UP IN BRITAIN WASHINGTON (UP)— The Federal Bureau of Investigation reports that a study of a huge traffic death increase in Britain shows war has a tendency to encourage reckless driving. figures recently received by the disclose than 'in -Britain's sec- PAGE THREE ond war year, September, 1940, to August, 1941, 10,073 persons were killed in traffic accidents an increase of 51.9 per cent over the corresponding pre-war period. Fifty-three per cent of all victims were pedestrians. Deaths of this type, involving persons over 15, jumped 81.5 per cent over the pre-war year, while the number involving children 15 years and younger increased 52.3 per cent. Causes Listed "The English traffic statistics," the FBI reported in its law enforcement bulletin, "reflects that while accidents were fewer they were more deadly and generally resulted from five factors in addition to the recklessness which war has a tendency to encourage." These factors were listed as follows: 1— Heavier character of road traffic. 2 _ Faster driving (frequently necessary on the pnrt of the military). 3— Lower driving standards. 4— Fewer traffic police. 5— Bad mechanical condition of some vehicles. The FBI now is conducting traffic schools throughout the countrj for the purpose of instructing \K\\ enforcement- agencies in handling wartime traffic. All the factors listed as contributory causes in Britain are receiving special attention trailer camp or tourist court building permit lias been made, the City Engineer, not earlier thiui thirty days after the first insertion of such notice, shall Issue the per,mit requested unless otherwise prohibited by law, except where petition is filed by one or more itizens, owners of property in the nmu'dlatu vicinity protesting the ssuance of such permit, and sshow- ng that if said permit is granted and said trailer camp or tourist ourt is erected, the conduct of ame will tend to decrease the •alue of property in the immediate vicinity .for residence purposes, said petition to be subscribed and sworn Patches and pieces and a little sewing patience can make this three-way accessory set for you a triumph of feminins ingenuity over wartime scarcities.

It will be disclosed that some of thess, industries were slow in ccnvertirig. The whole record of conversion will be spread on the book,, from National Defense Advisory Commission times, up through the OPM era and on into the "WPB activities of today.

What the whole thing will lead up to is the moot question of clollar- a-year men, and whether they have hindered the defense program more than they have helped it.
