Krug's sensational' announceincnt that war-limc controls over materials supply would be lifted Immediately after the defeat of der-' mnny,; there' is a generally untold, story of the WPB meeting In whlcli tills blitz-peace production program wris plnnned. The pinn .had been completed Ihc Saturday Iwfore Labor Day, under thc direction of Stacy May. heiul of WPli's Bureau ol Planning and Statistics. It was a document of some 80,page's, and only a limited number of copies had been mnde for distribution to the top government people customarily sitting In on WPB meetings. Tlie Idea was that they could famlllarlra themselves with the contents over the week-end, and Ix: ready lor the Tuesday meeting of the board, with any objections anyone might care to file. In spite, of thc fact that these were confidential documents, there' were a few leaks. There always have been leaks of these (government plans, someone tipping off tills or that segment of Industry wliicli might be affected. One of the troubles with WPB In the past has been that these lenks, with a certain amount of delayed action, have enabled pressure 'groups, from Industry or labor to start iinder-covcr iil- tucks against proposed board orders, whittling' them "down or amending them with limitations that spoiled their effectiveness. KHUG TAKES OVER Krug allowed no such grass to grow under his feet. As soon as he got the board's approval of his plan, lie announced it. The pfcss conference which Krug held with May the next day was more in the nature of a postscript lo clear up a few odds and ends. Stacy May made the presentation of the plan, and then it was open for discussion. Undersecretary of War Robert Patterson had the first crnck ul it. Up to this time, the Army had been the chief opponent to any Ideas of quick reconversion. All the way through the months Hint. Donald Nelson's spot authorization plan for limited reconversion Jind been milling through the \VPB, maze, War Department spokesmen lind sniped at it.'But to May's plan, Secretary Patterson raised no objection. MaJ.-Gen. Lucius 13. Clay, charge of Army procurement, who had been In command for most of the attack on reconversion during the absences of Llcut.-Ocn. Brc- lion Somervcll of the Army Service Forces, also sa,t silent. With the Army '-approving, Die plan was as good as put over. H was perhaps one of the most peaceful If-.

There was some consideration tlmt the Wai Manpower Commission might need additional legislation to ensure military production, but when Governor McNutt said he didn't think Congress would approve legislation In the first place, and It wasn't needed in the second, that objection was largely removed. THE GO-AHEAD ON UKCONVEKSION The Idea that small business would need priority protection on raw materials was easily overcome by the argument that big business wouldn't hog materials tor private enterprise on which Die government was not paying the cost, that processing millions of applications was physically impossible, and that forcing business to hold up planning until priorities were grunted would simply wreck thc whole Idea of speedy reconversion. Those objections out of the way, the plan sailed through and business got the green light. Krug, also, was off to a wonderful start. Temperatures High Atlanta TO Augusta .
