FRIDAY, 'AUGUST '4, 1944 flLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS LOOKING AfflAt 1 UNION tffe tUt MAKING WORK FAGS Pilots Brief for Home Front 'Mission' steps taken soon enough will assure plenty of jobs, nftcr the war, In peaceful pursuits for men busy toiliiy with war work and for those in uniform as fast as they are discharged from the armed forces. To say these men will deserve good jobs Is saying far too liltle. Having saved this country form toreigu foes, lliey will deserve to possess and enjoy their own prosperous land. It Is for the good ot the country and every family in 11 (Hat plenty of well-paid employment lie provided after the war.-It Is not a mere matter of justice to the deserving; not at all ti matter of pity for the unfortunate. It, is patriotism; It Is self preservation. If America Is to remain tlie land 'of liberty and opportunity, our . first post-war step must be toward firm footing: Work for willing workers. Industry Must Lead The first, move in post-war prosperity therefore is industry's move, putting some 25 million men to work st gainful employment. It is no small matter. The average investment necessary to make a Job In American Industry is $6,000 which means tliat industry must put up 150 billion dollars for equipment to make all these jobs good, that is, muke them pay wages and Interest on.Invest- ment, Soon after v-Day these 25 million men will start making their personal adjustments from war lo n peace-time manner of life. About 20 million people are In war work now but experts estimate that 25 per cent of them will gel out of industry after the war;, young people ^'turning to school, n'' .rrled women sumlng their home-making, etc. But 15 million now In war industries will want lo keep working. Others From Battle The United States likely will keep a large standing Army and a more powrful Navy than ever before. Probably anybody who wants to remain in the armed fores will have n chance to stay, but.ten million fighting men at least will want civilian jobs right afler the war. These two groups combined make 25 million workers and there Is not much disagreement among statisticians about.the figure. Putting all these men to work, of course, Is only one side of industry's big post-war responsibility The other half of it is providing people the things they want and need al prices they can afford to pay. Both undertakings require soim high-powered planning. Popular retail prices have; to start-with low production costs which depend on volume, but over-production is a calamity in any plant, a big calarn- jty In. any, industry,.;,.^... ...; i !V_.

It will require accurate market forecasting, cautiously balanced production, economical operation and good selling. Industrial leaders understand thnl ruthless competition upsets plans, lowers employment and damages prosperity. All must plan. If Private Enterprise does its share for national prosperity uy investing 150 billion dollars tthe cost of 18 months of war) to create 25 million jobs, industry will be obliged to have security of investment, and hope of profit—a green light and a clear road. Labor, and government both have a necessary part to play in post-war prosperity, and the next two chapters of this column will deal with them, one at a lime. "Labor's Lever," next week. CONNEAUT, O.
