THURSDAY, MAY 21, 1942 BIATHEVILLE (ARK.)" COURIER" NEWS PAGE EDSON IN WASHINGTON By PETER EDSON Courier News Washington ;< Correspondent There won't be a single wooden gun cr dummy tank or imaginary airplane in the maneuvers which the Army will hold this Summer and Fall, and that is perhaps the best commentary that could be made on the improvement in equipment and training the past year. At the four big maneuvers in 1941, and at the smaller divisional and corps maneuvers, lengths of gas pipe mounted on forked sticks to simulate machine guns or trench mortars or field artillery, were rather common. Air forces were only tokens of the real air strength For of all Kinds See G. G. Caudill Agency Glcncoe Hotel aJiig. I'D. BlylhevilJe, Ark. precept of democracy which everyone .should have recognized in the. beginning and which should inost certainly be remembered while future rationing programs are being planned. It is .simply that any time you attempt to pick out. one class of American citizens and give- them rights and privileges not enjoyed .. , . .. . , ,. , by the remainder of the popuia- tnat troops oi comparable strength j Uon> you nre nmning lnlo Uouble . There was no squawk on sugar rationing because everyone was equally inconvenienced. The screams on gasoline rationing all came from ihe 'Tm-just-a-s-good-as-he-is-and- I-got-just-as-much-i'ights!" element and under similar circumstances would encounter in actual battle. Mechanization w a s somewhat sketchy, and on paper. All that is changed this year. Every soldier will have every piece of equipment and all the troop units will,have all the arms which Army tables of organization call for in fulU strength operations. There"will be nothing phony about this year's maneuvers. And some of them will be so real, so close,, to rehearsal operations for specific- task forces, that they will be absolutely secret. * * * A LESSON HERE The one big lesson to be learned from all the hullabaloo over gas rationing in the east is nothing more nor less than a fundamental THE FLAVOR TELLS BLUE PLATE Mayonnaise +r ^Jff3?

M.cNutt's new Manpower Commission is still trying to formulate an over-all policy or. in other words, deckle what to do. The way tins commission was setup offers a perfect example of the way a new agency is created and begins to function in government administration. A committee of cabinet a n d top independent agency officers is created tu determine, policy. The chairman or director or eo-ordlnator or whatever he's called names an assistant chairman to shoulder the responsibility. In this case it was Arthur V.

First is labor pirating, which is competitive and inflationary hiring by employers; second is uncontrolled labor migration in which employes just pick up and leave .whatever jobs they have at the moment because the prospects look better in some other community. Neither pirating nor migration take into, consideration the maximum use to which any laborer's particular skill or experience may best suit him. First .step in remedying these .situations may have to be a biy campaign to persuade every workman to .stay at whatever job he now has until someone comes along lo U'll him he can do his country more good some place else. * * •* NKKI) N WISES There, still aren'L enough nurses lo i>o around for Army and Navy, so lied Cross will start, a I wo weeks' recruiting drive on May '25. aimed lo sign up 75.0110 of Ihe 100.000 eligible trained nurses who are .single, without family responsibilities, and under 40 years of age. of the Venezuelan minsHer to the United states.

Since then, he has included among his inventions an airplane speedometer and an autogyro vertical control.
