Mrs. Ethel Hoffman of Corning was elected chairman, succeeding George M. Lee of Blytheville, and Mre.-L. c. Porter of Paragould was elected vice chairman to fill the vacancy created by M\s. Hoffman's election to the chairmanship. J. W. Adams, was reelected treasurer, and Fred L. Swonn, American Red Cross field director at BAAP serves as council secretary. Mrs. Elizabeth c.

Before arguing yourself blue In the face nbout the ethics of this maneuver, consider ilrst whether the War labor Board has any right to declare a new wfige-i'fllslog policy, under the laws and executive orders wiiich set It up. A curbstone opinion would seem that the boary ;docs lmve i: thls'iui(IVorlty, but take n look nt some of "t ha. arguments: • , • >-••••• In the first place, the board's nil-' thority extends until six-monlhs after the , end . of the wnr, : ;ns de5, olaredjUy Die President, or Cohsi'(i$sl That means not Justine end. of tht war ngoliist Genivahy, buf the end of; the war ugaiiist Jaiiaii,- which mny not come betofe 104G. So there Is!no dtmgor Dim tjia,board's Jurisdiction ma v be running out. Till 1 IJOAltJ) MIGHT BE GUI' 0V A JOr. Under Executive Order 0017, sc't- ting .up the board, H Is dmrgod with finally disposing of labor disputes which might interrupt work which contributes to (he effective prosecution of the war. The board might therefore find itself out of n job if'the secretary of labor should iiol certify a cnsc to the board as nffecting the war effort, but the board, itself has frequently taken the position that any labor dispute, even a strike in a confetti plant, is most certain to have a detrimental effect upon the war effrot. It is a question, however, whether, this situation would be equally true after the end of the vvnr l.u Europe. To War Labor Board Chairman William-'H...Davis, this V-E Day is even more significant than election day, because It is more jin r inlnent and because after V-E Day, the country will have a> divided economy—part war economy aiid part a deliberate effort to convert to peacetime production. , •'.. The Wai Labor Board lias been rfiiir a great deal of thought late- to what effect this V.-E Day will have on Its wage policies. And Chairman Dnvis admits franklj", that In this coming period of a two-headed economy, he doesn't know whether a strike in a confetti plant will affect the war effort or not. His present inclination seems to be that even though the board is n war agency, if it is expected to settle disputes affecting the continuing war effort against Japan, It must have some pattern on which to base Us settlement.

Executive Order 9250, crcAlIng the orrice of Economic Stabilization and outlining stabilization policy, declares that "'rhc National War Uuor Hoard shall not. approve nny Increase In \vflge rales prevailing on Sent. 15, 19-12," with certuliv exception?. / . ;.
