War Manpower Commission Chairman Paul V. McNutt has been directed to draft a policy statement on a "freezing" plan agreed to in principle last night by the commission. The plan is designed to stop "pirating" of workers—a practice that is hampering some war industries—and to give complete control of W ar worker placement to the federal government. The plan -in its present form also provides for draft deferments for key war industry workers through selective service directives. There would be no blanket deferments.

He had apparently been dead for some time. that the armed service problem may be eased a little by seeking legislation to permit the drafting of youths 18 and 19 years old. They have to register June 30 but the present law prohibits their induction. Skilled Workers "Stolen" "We are making great strides in Piracy of workmen has been especially prevalent in the aircraft, shipbuilding and automobile industries and officials said it has reached proportions in some areas where its effect is being reflected in lower production. Industries working on government contracts would be required to hire only workers certified by the employment service. But the commission's deputy chairman. Fowler V. Harper, explained that there would be "no legal compulsion on a worker to take a job to which he is referred." Steps now are being taken, officials said, to include in all war contracts a clause binding management to hire new employes only through the employment service. It may require an executive order, but one official said efforts are being made to persuade companies now holding war contracts to accept the requirement voluntarily. tandardizing certain types of armament." Somervell said, indicat- ng the program was being carried out with Uic greatest urgency. eH said that the purpose of his mission was to see that combined American and British equipment "can be best used in any operations which may be undertaken." in the past there have been frequent major dificulties arising from differences in the equipment that made it impossible for Allies to use each other's material. HEflLTH DIRECTOR DUTIES Wavcll Says Defense Of Burma Saved India Equalized Pay Discussed There was talk in some quarters of an attempt to equalize pay so that a worker, under the "freeze" plan, would be recompensed for his inability to change to a higher paying job. At a public hearing on a labor dispute 'yesterday. War Labor Board Member Wayne L. Morse said: "It is not fair for the government to say to a private citizen, -'we don't think you ought to be allowed to move into another higher paying job because we need you in the job you are now in'—unless the government is willing to stabilize wages. . ." The draft deferment provision of the plan would create specific "essential classes" of farm labor, industrial workers and food processors whose positions would be given special consideration by draft boards before induction into military service. Officials said the plan probably would provide that a worker must have worked at the job designated at least six months 'before being considered eligible for an essential classification. Latest, war production board statistics show that some 10.000,000 persons are employed in war industries. Approximately 3.000,000 of them are skilled workers. 2.000.000 unskilled and the balance semi-skilled. McNutt already has announced that it will be necessary to double that working force within the next year—a job that will involve recruiting and training of several million women for factory work. NEW DELHI, India. May 28. (UP)—Gen. Sir Archibald Wavell. commander in chief of India, said today that India had been saved by the Allied defense in Burma, from a dangerous situation and "we now look forward to the day when our strength here- and elsewhere will make possible a counter offensive."
