The Navy doesn't want it any longer, and why it isn't helping to cover the nakedness of American men is a mystery that Sen. James M. Mead of N. V'"., is trying to fathom. He is iimaxed. Me, too. What happened was that T was deep in the bowels of the Capitol, burrowing into the files of one senator's war investigating committee. I was jotting down notes on Army surpluses, such as 43B.839 pounds of powrerccl soap, 11.000 one- gallon cans of castor oil, 1,527 half gallon cans of ditto, 21,FiHO gravj boats, 23,281 creutu pitchers, ami 20,000 surgical knives in assorted sizes.

Another consignment of Navy shorts in sizes unspecified totaled 1.175,387 pairs. 1 got in touch with Hen. Mead who has been badgering the War Assets Corp., to sell a couple of billion dollars worth of surplus materials to the: people who need them. Hen. Mead could use a few shorts, himself. "I am ama/ed." he said, "to find 11,000,000 shirts and 5,500.000 pairs of shorts declared surplus by the WOTJT and still in Navy storage. If would seem to me that in view of the need of the men of this country thnt the Senate War Investigating Committee had belter take steps to see that the nation's males get these shirts, shorts and oilier items of clothing still in shortage." So much for men's haberdashery. I can report further that the fed- eral surplus disposeroos are about o get some peculiar merchandise lor sale, such as live human skeletons, 130 bassinetts, 322 cradles and, unong other things. 20 pairs of ice tongs. These materials are in stock at, the Army Medical Supply Depot Binghampton. N. Y. r the Army doesn't seem to need 'em any longer, and they will be declared surplus soon.

Commuters stumble over him al the station. Housewives detour around his 240 pounds of shaggy St. Bernard on the sidewalk. Theatergoers find him parked in the lobby. He goes to church. But for all their stumbling. Glen Coye's residents love Dutch—the town bum. He bums his meals from lunch wagons and butcher shops. He's never driven froth public gatherings. Once In a while he rides Ill's trains. All for free. "He has been our town character for some years now." Mayor Arthur Altkcnhetid said. I.overl by Everybody "He Is very gentle and is loved by everybody. He visits the theater, the schools and nil the churches. He carts the smaller children around on his back. Anyway you look at it, he Is a most unusual doK." Butch, whose six-foot frame is hie enough to block an ordinary sidewalk, has a home, but, seldom bothers to stay there. He is the jroperty of J. Norrls Miller, owner of an estate and a relative of former Gov. Nathan L. Miller. Eric Krabel. editor of the Glen Cove Echo, sometimes gives Butch nore space in his column than lie iocs the doings of the scions of Long Island's first families. "Sometimes when Butch gets lired of the town he ROCS down Lo the dei>ot and boards a train and rides down to Oyster Bay," Krabel said. Butch Rides Free "Of course, he hasn't any ticket or anything, but the trainmen know him and he's never put off. When lie's ready he hops another train and comes back." Townspeople remember what WHS perhaps Hutch's most famous ex- (ploit iwo years ago. Early one morning someone heart; a commotion in the depot and told police they heard robbers inside. Police surrounded the depot. They tried to open the door, but it slammed back at them. One got a tommy gun and covered the door while the others prepared, to rush It. "Put your hands up and come out or we'll shoot." they ordered. They riushe.1 (he door. Out came Hutch. He had been locked in by accident. Resd Courier News Want Ads.

How would you CHART YOUR Pictured here are flic records of four "life lines" ofour business—four tilings which Inrgely control the destiny of any business, whether it be a farm, a factory or n store. They are Wages, Materials Costs, Prices, and Profit, 1 ;. Suppose these were pictures of what is going on in your own affairs. How would you chart youi future course from these facts? 1941 56.1'A.V/eoll 1946—o gn.n o l ew ou 1dboS^3.40. 11 — — •" THE C PRICE HANGE s • PROFITS 1941 nwchi U.S. Bureau o ner, in J94S s 100. mice! of fa ere onl/ 104.9. What about wages? Wages have risen steadily for fiv'j years. Before the strike which began on January 21 in tori of our plants and which has clinked off nearly all farm machinery production, earnings of employes of these phtnts averaged $l.l5)a <»n hour, not including any overtime. The Union demanded a 34 cents per hour increase and a Government board has now recommended a general increase of 18 cents an hour, which would make average earnings $1.33 J>j an hour. Weekly average would be ,$03.40. What about materials? No one seems lo know how high materials costs will RO. The Government has increased steel prices as much as $12.00 a ton, with an average for all grades of 8.2%. Steel is the most important material we buy, but prices on other materials arc also increasing. What about prices? 'There has been no general increase in our prices since, (hey were, frozen by th c (rOL'Crii m en t in earl Y I9 r I2. Since then a few small increases have been allowed where particular machines were substantially ; changed in design. What about profits? ^pSi 1 Risk is part of the American profit '. and loss system, so we do not, of i course, ask either our customers or the Government lo guarantee i that we can be certain of profit* : each year. The chart tells the story ofour profits during the war. Although Harvester produced more goods thnn ever l>efore, it , had nodesire toRetrichoutof war, so our rate of proGt has steadily gonekiown. What our 10-16 profit will be is extremely uncertain. What is the next step? As you can see, our present situation is that with frozen price.*; and declining profits, \ve are asked to pay higher materials costs and to make the biggest wage increase in the history of the Company. Can we do this? Wages and materials consume all but a few cents of every dollar we take in. If our prices continue frozen, and cost of wages and I I / losi than lour in 1941. materials continues lo rise, obviously our Compani' will begin to operate at a loss at some point. The exact point at which operating at a loss would start is ft matter of judgment. Government agencies and union leaders may ^ have opinions as to where that • point is. But if they turn out to . be wrong, they cnn shmg their, shoulders nnd say: "Well, it wasn't my rcaponsiblity. 1 didn't make the decision." = , The management of this Company cannot and will not say that. It flares not gamble. It lias to be sure. Continuation of our service, to millions of customers, the future jobs of thousands of em- ployes, and trui safety of the investments of 39,000 stockholders depend on our making ns correct a decision as is humanly possible. What about future prices on farm machinery? The judgracntof Harvester's management now is that we cannotsafc- ly make the huge wage increase recommended by the Government until the Government authorizes adequate increases in the prices of farm machinery to cover the resulting increased costs. That is not a judgment that' ^ mnkes us happy. The Company ;. ; does not want to raise prices. We' _^ prefer to lower prices, when pos? '"w sibtc, and we know our customers " prefer to have us do that. We have produced at 1942 prices, and hoped we could continue to do so. We' have delayed seeking general price relief in the hope that it could rxv avoided. Now we are convinced that it cannot be avoided any longer. The price question must be settled. Until it is settled we do not ace how we can settle the wage question. Until the wage question is settled we do not sec how we can resume production and Iwgin turning out the farm machines which we know our farmer customers need. Because of the important stake which both farmers and city dwcH- ers have in this controversy, we arc bringing these matters to your attention. Through the cross cur- rcnUs of today's conditions, we are trying to chart a course that w fair to our employes, to our farmer customers, and to our stockholders.
