UNRRA READY TO AID POLAND MISSION TO BE SENT WHEN DISPUTE SETTLED WASHINGTON, Oct. 2:1. (UP)— The United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration is ready .to send a technical mission to Poland as soon as a settlement is reached in the Polish-Russian political dispute, it was learned today. This disclosure came as President Roosevelt prepared to receive from W. Averell Harriman, I'nited States ambassador to Soviet Russia, a direct, report of the recent Stalin- Churchill conference at which "Important progress" was made towards solution of the Polish question. Harriman acted as the Uniter States observer at that conference. He left Moscow the day before Primr Minister Winstun Churchill am" rushed by plane to (be I'nited Stat to get Mr. Roosevelt's approval, not only of decisions on Poland, but also on the agreements about future politics In the Balkans, especially In Yugoslavia. The technical mission for Polanc is separate from the UNRRA group that had planned to go to Moscow. That trip was postponed last Saturday at the request of the Soviet government and without further explanation. STAR HAS PNEUMONIA A SOUTH PACIFIC BASE. Oct. 23. UP)—Olivia DeHavilland, American film star touring Pacific army bases, is ill with pneumonia, the Army Hospital here has disclosed. Her condition wan reported satisfactorily yesterday, however. No complications had developed and she was making normal improvement. I In 1890, the first year Union Oil Company was in business, there were exactly 100 men on our pay roll. During that year, those 100 men turned out enough petroleum products to fill 273 modern tank cars-an average of 2H tank cars per man. In 1943, there were 7,869 people on our pay roll • They turned out enough petroleum products to fill 187,374 tank cars-an average of 23H tank cars per man. That's an increase ofafinost 800% in the productive capacity of each man. And it was made (on modern products that were far more complex to manufacture than those of 1890. w Does that mean that today's Union Oiler is 8 times the man his grandfather was? No, but he does have far better "tools" to work with. In 1890, each of the 100 Union Oil employees had about $5,000 worth of equipment to work with. Today, each of the 7,869 has $39,505 worth. Investment fear Employees Per Employee Stockholders 1916 3,139 $14,659 3,029 1922 6,877 18,195 4,029 1934 8,384 26,919 21,525 1943 7,869 39,505 31,375 Now this tremendous increase in investment could hardly have been made without pooling the money of a lot of people. The original 1890 stockholders numbered less than 50. To have financed an improvement program of 310 million dollars would have cost them more than 6 million apiece. a9 Instead, as the need for equipment grew, they, secured additional funds by inviting more and more people to invest in Union Oil stock* This method was not unique with Union. It was used by all U. S. heavy industries. But it is largely responsible for the production efficiencies this nation has attained today. O Of course, we could have formed these pools of money .by government ownership. But we Americans have chosen to do it under legal agreements known as corporations. For that way we can preserve the individual's freedom, the efficiency of a free economy and that all-important human UNION Oil COMPANY • I CAllFttNIA This series, sponsored by the people of Union Oil Company, is dedicated to a discussion of how and why A merican business functions.

AMERICA'S fJJJJH FREEDOM IS FREE ENTERPRISI Kemmel Entitled to Verdict on Attack, Says Lawyer By HAMILTON W. FAROX WASHINGTON, Oct. 23.

Harbor attack is being reviewed prior to any publication today brought a protest from Hear Admiral Husband K. Kimmel's lawyer that the procedure is "a WANTS VERDICT—Lawyer for Hear Admiral Husband E. Kimmel s:iys Kimmel is entitled to hear the verdict of the court which investigated the Pearl Harbor attack, charging "a specious pretext" to withhold the findings until after the presidential election. specious pretext" to withhold the findings until after the presidential election. I'onnsL'l for Kimmel, who commanded uuvy forces in Hawaii when the Japanese struck there, stated: "He (Kimmel) is entitled to hear the verdict of. the court promptly." Turned Over to King Navy Secretary Forrestal recently turned the report over to Admiral .Ernest J. King, navy commander-in- I'hlef, for a determination of Us effects on military security. And in Boston, Charles B. Paiggr, chief counsel for Kimmel, asserted that "Secretary Forrestal's suggested procedure Is a specious pretext to keep the truth of Pearl Harbor hidden from December 7, 1941, until November 7, 1944." (Date of the national election). "The navy court has done Us work," Kugg's statement continued. "Its report has been submitted. Presumably it places the responsibility for the Pearl Harbor catastrophe. Waived Limitations Statute "Over a year ago, the late secretary of navy. Colonel Frank Knox, asked Admiral Kimmel to waive the statute of limitations. In his letter making this request. Colonel Knox stated that the public interest and safety would then permit proceedings. "Jle added, however, that there would lie a delay because of the difficulty of bringing witnesses before a court. "The present secretary of the navy raises the question of secrecy. "This inconsistent and dilatory procedure is hard to understand. "It is unjust to Admiral Kimmel. • "He is entitled to hear the verdict of the court promptly." Subject of much political debate, including assertions by Republican Haas (R.-Minn.) that It was being withheld (or political reasons, the report was delivered to Navy Secretary Forrestal, labeled In part as top secret"—highest naval security classification. Forrestal immediately notified the court of inquiry which prepared the report that he would ask King to determine how much of its findings might endanger national security if disclosed. His action came only a few hours after President Roosevelt, saying he knew nothing abou it, declined to discuss Maas' comments that the court's report was being delayed because it would he "politically embarrassing to the administration." Charges Attack Known Maas has declared that "high officials of the government, civilian and military knew six hours before the attack that Pearl Harbor and the Philippines were to be attacked" but "failed to take steps to notify Admiral (Rear Admiral Husband E.) Kimmel and General (Ma.t-Gcneral Walter C.) Short in advance of the attack." . Forrestal made no mention of the political controversy in disclosing through a copy of a letter to Admiral G. Orin Murfin, president of the court, that the report of the inquiry had been delivered to him yesterday. The document itself, under navy regulations, constitutes a finding of fact upon which Forrestal must determine whether a courtmartial of Kimmel is necessary.
