; WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 9, 19-14 Workers Sought For War Plants / Manpower Official £| Seeks 25 Men From 'Mississippi County War production demands today declared (he most serious need for help from Die Mississippi County aroii since (lie war begun. John B, Brimzo, nl the Hlnlc Administrative Office of tlie War Manpower Commission was In Blythcville to- tiny conferring ivlth tjie local office of the United Stales Employment Service on tlie "must'' need of 25 workers from tlie Mlssie-sippi Comity urea for .strictly war jobs. "A lotal of 70,000 war workers must l)o recruited nnllminlly before September 1." said Mr. Brunxo. "Of these workers. ! 8.000 are needed for a secret job, 22.000 for shipbuilding, 21,500 for ship repairs, 7200 for iiircraft. <>CoO for construction proj- eels and Die remainder for forging, foundries, lodging lumber, chemicals and petroleum. They are all national 'musts'. "Tlicre are practically all kinds of job, oiu'iiinys." continued Mr. rnmw), "laborers, carpenters, en- pine lathe operators, construction equipment mechanics, explosive operators, loo-makci's, tool designers, niachinisls, maintenance mechanics', fCflnwii, and many others. They are needed in the moat important War production centers in the country, In Kansas City, Oklahoma City, Lawrence and Salina. Kansas, m the slntcs of California, Indiana Michigan, Utah, Washington and Wyoming. "This war order is of such overwhelming importance to the war effort that the War Manpower Commission has advised all of its offices that it must take precedence over everything eke until these or<jug x have been filled," concluded Iw*"/ lirnnico. "I have assured Mr. Brunzo and Arkansas Manpower Director, Floyd Sharp, that Mississippi Couniy can be counted on to Mil its quota of 25 cmergcntly needed war workers," said Herbert Whilehead, manager of the Blytheville Office of the United Slates Employment Service. "The people in this area have never fallen down on any war bond quota, any selective service call, or any other really important demand of the war effort. We understand that this emergency call for 25 workers from the Missiraippi County area is really critical and that the call must be met. "Every worker in this area not already in an essential wnr job should obtain further information about these extra important war jobs from the Employment Office at 118 South Second Street, here in Blytheville, 'at once," concluded Mr. Wliitchcad. Soys Children Enjoy Reading Horror Tales By DENNIS DAI.TON Hulled Press siaff Corres[ioinleiit CLEVELAND. (UP) — Junior doesn't mind reading a gruesome story—in fuel, he enjoys it because H balances his reeling of weakness In the presence of adults, accord- Ing lo Miss Harriet G. Lone, assistant professor of library science at Western Reserve University. Professor Ixmg, an authority on children's liteuratiire, says that stories such as those written by the brothers Grimm nre not. gruesome to children at all because they like stories of warriors mid giants. "Hooks written tor children today show a decided Improvement over those written during tho last cen-. lUiry," she believes, "They, show n I much more enlightened attitude toward children." The older books, Professor Lone asserts, tried to point a moral; they i tried to make a little man out of a boy. "In the olden days adull-s did no! imdcrntand as they do today that childhood is a stage of growth, nnd that children are entitled to 1 enjoy their childhood," she snys. Unusual Colleclion .Professor Long has assembled one of the most unusual collections of children's books ever placed on display in this pail of the country at Western Reserve's library. The books, assembled at the university since 1925, contrast the old •and new in fairy talcs, nursery rhymes and other literature for : children. They number about 300. Children always will derive cn- ' joymcnt from Mother Goose rhymes, (which were not created for children but usually lo express some political sentiment. Professor I,ong says. Rhymes arc accepted by children I because they "bounce" and have ! simple stories to tell. She observes that the taste for highly Imaginative stories in children begins at about the sixth year. Before that, children arc more in- tcresteo in realities and arc busy getting their feet on the ground.
