BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)", COURIER NEWS EDSOI BY PETER EDSON Hews Washington Correspondent ; ; WAamiGTaN;VM^y 7.—That segment of the population which has'believed the fake hue and cry that the investigation of Father Coughlin's Social Justice represented", a threat against, all "freedom of the press" might take into consideration some of the false rumors that have been spread by like vermin. One lie that has been whistpered by such people and has b|en traced directly-to the women irj the Social Justice crowd is that the moves to establish women's auxiliaries for'the'Army and Navy w£re .'nothing more than veiled white slave recruiting drives to procure women for the soldiers and sailors of the armed service.

Brehon Spmervell, commander of the Service of Supply, and his experts say it's impossble to make any accurate calculations of how many workers are needed behind the lines to keep one soldier in the field. There have been nofficial estimates running from three to 18. The top figure is obviously ridiculous, for on that basis an army of 10 million men would need 180 million workers in reserve, and the total population of the country, including babies, is only 130 million. In the first World War, just before the armistice, the A. E. F. had about two nullon men, 36 per cent of whom were in the Service of Supply. This being a mechanized or gadget war, the supply problem is more complicated, and the ratio may be higher. But the effort is being made to keep that ratio as low as possible. » * * If you want a rough guess of how you'll be fixed at the end of this year or a year later, here's one official economic guess from the Henderson staff: By the end of 1942 the standard of living will ENGLISH POET HORIZONTAL 1 Pictured British poet, 12 Hasten, 13 Drone. * HOvum (comb. form). 16 Music note. 18 Sailor. 20 Station (abbr.). 21 Grain (abbr.). 22 Aged. 24 Twice five, 25 Greek letter. 26 United. 27 Music character. 29 Real. 30 Interweave. 32 Meadow.

HANES KNITTING COMPANY Winston-Salem, North Carolina A Complete Line of Hanes Underwear Joe Isaacs, Inc "Gloomy Gerties'" Fun Sunk By Price-Fixing BV RUTH MILLETT You think this price lixing; Ls a good idea. Well, it's going to play heck with some folks. Mrs. Smith, for example. Why she has been having a swell time with rising prices. Every time she has read a grocery list in the last year she has announced with gloomy satisfaction to Mr. Smith, "Well, pork went up another two cents this week," or "I guess we'll just have to stop having steak; I see it's gone up again." What .is she going to read out loud to Mr. Smith, when the I grocery lists hold no more terror? Then there is the clerk who has said about every article you've examined in the last year, "You'd better get it while you can at these prices. I understand our next shipload is going to be fifteen per cent higher." Of course, he won't be as badly off as some folks, for he can always fall back on, "I don't know how much longer we'll be able to get that. Government priorities, you know." SHE'LL MISS THAT TALKING POINT And, of course, there's Mrs. Jones who has for months talked her husband into letting her buy whatever she wanted with the line "Don't you think we ought to buy it before the price goes up an* more?" She's going- to miss that sure-fire talking point. But. then so will Mr. Brown find it hard'to find as good an excuse for vetoing all his wife's buying plans as. "You had better t ^f, nd ; a cent you don't have With the cost of living going up the way it is, we may need every cent we can save before the year is up." So, if you're feeling good about price irxmg—remember the poor men and'women who fall back on the rising cost of living whenever they needed a topic of conversation and alibi or. a sales line. They're going to suffer—poor things. Crab Packing Becomes Major Oregon Industry THURSDAY, MAY 7, 1042 collection Ls a gold-plated copy of buttons made in Wat?rbury, Conn., in 177G for Gen.

For instance, here Ls one of the engagements for which the economic warrior strategists m^ght have to map battle lines soon: Argentina, unable to get her usual rubber supplies from the United States, has been sending rubber buyers into Bolivia to scout for native crude rubber, .in competition with U. S. buyers. To beat the Argentines, several attacks might be made. First, Argentina might be guaranteed a certain percentage of her normal manufactured rubber imports from the U. S. Or. U. S. buyers might make a deal to by all the rubber Bolivia can produce, thus freezing Argentina out of the market. Or, long- term contracts must be offered Bp- at prices higher than Argentina can pay and with bonuses for , amounts delivered over contract quotas, to encourage production nd make the .Argentine buyers' ork more difficult.
