PAGE SIXTEEN BLYTKEYILLB,.(ARK.) COURIER NKW» WEDNESDAY, APRIL 11, 1«M Mobilization Wage Fight Stalemated Neither Labor, Management Want to Yield WASHINGTON, April 11. WV- Kelthcr management nor organized labor seemed outwardly Inclined today to yield in the big mobilization dispute over a wage dispute board. But reports of quiet meetings were heard, leading to speculation over the possibility of an agreement before president Truman's Mobilisa- tion Advisory Board sits down again at the White House tomorrow morn- Ing. R-esh opposition cropped up In Congresss, meanwhile, lo any move aimed at revamping fnrm parity as a means oj curbing (ood prices. Government stabilization officials reportedly have been considering mch a move, which would require enactment of new legislation. Yesterday, a former governor ol Georgia quit his job as a consultant to the Office of Price Stabilization with a blast at the OPS and official Washington In general. Ex-Governor M. E. Thompson, a Democrat said he was hired for a 453-n-day job but kept in idleness for 12 weeks and rendered "no service on the public payroll." Others In "Same Boat" He said "thousands upon thous- sands of others" are in the same boat. "Official Washington," he said, "is drifting in a sea of contusion, inefficiency waste and extravagance. " OPS boss Michael DiSalle issued a statement indicating that until recently no settled duties had been found for Thompson but that a specific job was finally offered and rejected. Thompson called DiSalle's whole itatement untrue. Elsewhere in the defense mobilization picture, the government served notice last night it will take court action if necessary to obtain compliance with controls over scarce materials. . Manly Plelschmann, national production administrator, said 043 cases of violation of control orders have ' been turned up already. He said most of these were unintentional, but "there should be no doubt In anyone's mind of NPA's authority •nd willingness to deal vigorously with the offender who puts personal gain ahead of his country's needs." ' Ciws PcnaillM He noted that violation of NPA'S orders can be punished by l »10,MO line and a year in prison. Defense Mobilization Director Charles E. Wilson warned in a CBS broadcast, last night against any public let-down In the task of rearming the nation. "No man has the right to compromise the life or safety of a single boy In Korea or' to compromise the future of this nation," Wilson said. As head-of the new n-man advisory board which Mr. Truman ' named last week, Wilson now is tak- - ing the lead In efforts to get a new wage stabilization board. The original one has been inactive since the labor members resigned nearly two months ago. The President had at least one major weapon to use on the union and industry chiefs who have dead- 'locked over what kind' of disputes »hould be handled by a new board The President may appoint a pane\ of only public members—leaving out members from labor and industry. Ethiopian OP'S Stir Dispute With Natives ADDIS ABABA—</P)—The Ethiopian Government has complained that certain displaced persons In Ethiopia have been engaged in "subversive activities" within the country and "have maligned Ethiopia •broad." The charge was made In an official statement, which said: "It is regrettable that such humanitarian efforts (on the part of Ethiopia in accepting them) should have been recompensed with calumnies on the part of certain groups of these refugees who so readily ac- ccpted our hospitality. They have not only sought to malign Ethiopia abroad, but also have engnsctl in subversive activities within." (In Cairo, last January, an Informant reported about 100 DPs established in farms in the semi-wild Interior south of Addis Ababa had fled to the capital fitter demonstrations by shouting natives brandishing spears, sickles and other weapons. The Informant said IRO wns seeking exit visas and transport back to Europe for the DPs.) Sunday School Lessons .
