McClellan f.ays he Is In favor of postwar federal spending for projects such na dams and reservoirs and navigation, projects. But he says he Is I'pposcrl lo postwar spending on projects resembling the WPA. In. a. tabor Day address during the opening of the new Port Smith- Van Buren bridge, McCteltrm Mid: "Many of our postwar planner,') and so-called economists envision nnotlicr works progrnin on the order ot llic WPA ns being necessary mid cisenlial to provide £ibs for our people, Otlicrs want to sec the federal government provide unlimited billions for unemployment compensation." McClellan continued:' "However, botli these programs will involve continued bor- .•/nvinj; and deficit spending by the federal government. That Is not n sound policy and should be retorted to only when there is no alternative.'" The Arkansas senior-Scnator-to- bc said the idea of'postwar federal projects would be construct!.-)!) on major streams and construction of highways. "I want to sec every project, every dam, every reservoir every levee, aiid all irrigation projects tint have been authorized thus far by Congress, and those that may be hereafter authorized on the White and Arkansas rivers and on other streams in our nation, immediately constructed .when this war ends." McClellati said, 'Hie Arkansas Senator advocated that all of the taxes collected from highway users by the federal gov- rfl^sient be expended in the con- sjpriiction. of new highways through- 'out the nation. Arkansas Highway Director W. W. Mitchell also spoke. -He prni.scd the etforts of Senator McClellan in obtaining construction projects in Arkansas. .Jin 1 Gcgrge I'ciibody , wlioro Mrs. Wlilllicld will be :i tradioY In the Wm>dini>".; School.

Then the papers ar c full of it. - • • To understand, the Nelson- Wilson case, you have to go back to September 1942, when Wilson first was brought into the-War' Production Board as, vice, chairman in charge of production. Wilson was Nelson's choice for the 'job, bui to Nelson's early pleas I'd Wilson' to come to Washington, the" reply-of the General Electric president had been that he wanted to stay with his company and would only come to Washington if the President drafted him. So Nelson, went to the President and got Wilson ordered to Washington. The fact that the President • appointed Wilson lo his job as vice chairman! of WPB was later, to".embarrass Nelson because it left him in 'a-"position of" not: being able tgiflroV Subordinate. /iltiMY-G'lVIMAN TKOl/liJ.KS Nelson's MB buttle, up to the time of Wilson's appearance in Washington, hart been witli the Army — principally Lieut. - Gen. Brehon Somcrvell of the Army Service Forces. That was compromised, partially by the appointment of Ferdinand Eborstndt as vice chairman in charge of materials and allocutions, but it was fully settled when Wilson was put in cliaigc of production and named head of Die Production Executive Committee of Generals and Admirals in charge at «-m- procurement and production of munitions. Then in the winter of l!)42-43 contlicts arose between Wilson and Ebersladt. Nelson settled them by firing Ebcrstadt early in February 1943, putting all six of Ebersladt's divisions oi WPB under Wilson and giving Wilson complete control Of all WPB operations. After a year, the, vice chairman and division heads who had been appointed by Nelson began to drop put. They were replaced by men appointed by Wilson and it wasn't, long before everybody in Wrn was reporting to Wilson. Nelson eventually found himself in the position of having to use his personal assistants when he wanted to follow ports that the Wilson men were not co-operating on Nelson policies. Nelson's I rip to Husxlii didn't help this MluHtlon. POI ITK,'K1,V<; HlIitiNI) KCKNKS It wiis logical tlnil Wilson .should rely on (he urijnnl/atlon that he was building up, and to discard the remnants of the former Nelson or- Kanlmlion. One of (lie victims of Mils was, strangely enough, J. A. Kriig. who had been Nelson's jnnti n charge of program planning.
