Power Fight Brewing Another hot utilities fight will probably start in Congress when Secretary Ickes (in his roi of Bureau Of Reclamation gets around to asking- for three billion dollars to reclaim 16 million desert and construct some 200 hydroelectric power plants in 17 western states. Mr. Ickes will probably put forth some good arguments. Besides the new food and power sources, there Will be three-year jobs in actual construction and in construction material production for a half million returned veterans and former war workers. But the opposition will doubtless a few haymakers.

Some likely arguments arc these: the temp- wary construction jobs will mean the permanent end of thousands of jobs for coal miners and railroad workers; hydro-electric power costs more than the steam-electric variety; we are using only about 46 per cent of our theoretical power-production maximum at an unprecedented industrial peak, and Won't need an expanded power system the new government power projects must compete with, not supplement, existing installations. The opposition can also question the need of 16 mil- more arable acres. Based on the efficiency of present in t-owned power the new ones would produce six nncl nine million kilowatts of generating capacity. ducecl from steam instead of wa- 'tcr, it would take from 16 to 24 millions tons of coal. That's a year's work for 16,000 miners, and means 34 million dollars pay at the present rate.

To lhat can be added eight million dollars to railroad workers-for hauling that much coal. opposition could up a 1937 report which -Mr. Ickes (this tirile as chairman of the National Resources Committee) made to the in which it was stated the average over-all cost of producing electricity from water -power was six-tenths of a cent, as against four-tenths of a cent from steam. Mr. Ickes can point out the utter foolishness of hauling coal to the far west, where water power is abundant.

And the opposition can counter that the greatest power demands are in the densely populated east and midwest-right in the coal country. When all this has been thrashed put, the debate will probably boil to the question of private enterprise versus public ownership. The present temper of Congress is rather pro-enterprise. Unless Mr. Ickes can guarantee a great industrial boom in the west, he may find it quite a to pry Congress loose from three in post-war days to come may again look like quite a sizable chunk of money.

BUY BONDS Paper Salvage The paper salvage quota for 1944 is going to be short by 2.000,000 tons at the present rate of collection, we are told by Gen. Brehon Somervell, chief of the army service forces. And that is more alarming than you might think. "Our whole war economy is built on paper," says WPB Chief Donald -M. -Nelson.

And he doesn't mean OPA forms or the inter-office memoranda of government agencies. He is talking about the vital uses to which paper is of them, from plasma containers to bomb fins. Now, the collection of the 8,000,000 tons of paper needed this year is a tremendous task. But there is no reason why all of it has lo be the waste variety. Some of it could just as well be salvaged before it is used, with a consequent saving of money, labor, time and transportation.

The government has already started tor do a job of eliminating its bureaus' needless publications and releases. And it would seem that there are a few civilian items that we could bravely sacrifice, and struggle through to victory.

Johnston, president of the United States Chamber of Commerce. Tin's speech was reproduced in the April issue of The Reader's Digest. I sent a copy of my criticism to (be directors of the chamber. They replied by sending mo a copy ol his complete speech. When I read the speech I was more convinced than ever that Mr.

Johnston loves to hear the sound of his own voice, but docs not understand the principles on i this government was founded, if his statements are his beliefs. He does not understand the principles that will promote freedom and prosperity. His article is entitled "A Warning to Labor and Management." ffe is a mighty poor man to be warning anyone. In his article lie sets forth what he calls the "seven sins" of some labor unions. Mr says there arc good labor unions, but he does not define what a good labor union is.

SuOO Tn Mr. Johnson I recently made public in this column an offer to give to Edward Keating, manager of Labor, a national newspaper owned by 16 railroad unions, if he ivould name one labor union thai m'd not restrict production by attempting to fix prices artificially, I proposed to leave the decisio'n RS to whether he named a union complying with tho specifications to any professor of mathematics in any college in the United Slates not controlled by the slate. I have a letter from Keating sayinp he is not interested in my offci of $500. So I will gi VP Eric A. Johnston $500 if ho will name one national labor union that is a good union, and by a good union I mean one lhat docs not attempt to interfere in one way or another with some individual's right to trade his services as he believes would be to his best advantage in oilier words, a labor union 'hat does not take away from some individual his natural rights.

A union that does this cannot be a good union. I do not believe there is a union in the United States, excepting company unions, that can qualify as a good union if "goodness" means equal freedom and not attempting to interfere with other people's natural rights. In Mr. Johnston's address he flops not mon I ion one of Hie most serious sins lhat is veiy generally micliced by ijnions. He doc's lot men I ion the sin of seniority.

He seems to think that all labor unions need 10 oo is aamii everybody into tho union who wan la admission. what good would it do to admit a member to the union if all Ihe belter jobs were filled by seniority, and Hie man with ability was not able to advance because he was hold down by senior! I Mr. Johnston also contends that, in the past, organizations have bought up patents and suppressed thorn with the idea of making more money. On Sepl." 32, 1942. I published an article offering 5100 if anyone would name one corporation that had bought up a patent and after it had laid dormant for a period it three years, would not sell it for what they had paid.

No one ever claimed the reward. It is certainly discouraging to think lhat an organization which is supposed to understand business and freedom, as the Unilcd States Chamber of Commerce is supposed lo, would have a man with as little understanding of liberty and principles as Eric A. Johnston going about (he country making speeches. If this line of leadership continues, our country Is hearted for the worst possible kind of crash and catastrophe. It is loo bad wo have men in Important, positions fooling Ihe people, as Mr.

Johnston is doing by his contention thai there arc labor unions and peddling the old idea lhat corporations buy up good patents anif suppress them.

But playing starring roles in two important pictures with practically no acting- experience at nil was just like pulling teeth Gail Russell says. She just returned from the premiere of "The Uninvited" in New- York. A year ago dark-haired, big-eyed Gail Russell was drawing pictures Now she's starring in them She hadn't even thought about acting She was studying to be a commercial artist.

Quite an order for a girl who had never seen a movie camera before. Gail said she was paralyzed with fright. She couldn't even remember her lines, let alone try to act with the crew staring at her. So they put up screens beside the camera. Director Lewis Allen babied her.

J-EARNED "ENGLISH" Paramount was all set to film 'The Uninvited" with someone else playing Stella when Director Allen noticed Gail. She had been under contract to Paramount for six months, playing bits in "Lady in the Dark" and a Henry Aldrich film. Allen took her to the Paramount boss, Buddy DcSylva, and said, "This is the girl I want for Stella." DeSylva said the role was hers if she could acquire an English accent in 24 hours. The company bad to leave the next day for location scenes in Northern California "They hired an English coach iiamcd Miriam Greene," Gail said. "We went to a projection room and ran off a lot of English-made pictures for six hours.

Under certain circumstances they think they might corral Virginia, but seeing will be believing in regard to the Old Dominion.

One classic oration by the renerable carter Glass for F. D. R. would hold the birthplace of previous Presidents in line. private surveys by realists in both camps have one interesting tendency: They credit President Roosevelt with only a single state north of the Potomac River and east of the little Rhode Island! Naturally, Democratic strategists do not subscribe wholeheartedly to this reckoning except in their' desire to be completely hard-boiled in estimating their minimum and maximum chances.

They note, too, that the electoral strength of two or three large states, combined with the two hundred five votes previously allotted to the President, will furnish him with a victorious majority. The electoral ballots of New York, which has forty-seven, and any one of the following- states would give Mr. Roosevelt enough additional votes to land him in the white House again: New Jersey (sixteen); Massachusetts (sixteen Pennsylvania Uhirl.y-fivcl; Illinois Ctweiity eight); Ohio (twenty-five) Michigan (nineteen); California (twenty-five).

They had scant appeal, G. O. look for a Democratic loss in the urban vote because of the greater defections in labor and the colored population among small businessmen, housewives and racial groups resentful of the Administration's foreign policy as it affects their homelands. Indeed, the Republicans attribute the sixty-six thousand term turnout in Wisconsin's Democratic primary to embittered Germans and Poles and kindred elements. Meanwhile, Mr.

Spangler insists that, his Party will garner a far greater pile of important pieces of paper in the agricultural areas than they did in 1932, 1936 1940. The growers blame their lack of machinery and help and failure to get higher prices for their products on the War Production Board, the Manpower Commission and the Office of Price agencies directly responsible to the man in the White House. David Dwight Eisenhower has the same graciousness and kindliness which have helped to make her distinguished husband so successful in the military world. Before leaving Washington to visit a relative in Texas, who is married to a first lieutenant, she learned that their comfortable quarters had been taken over by a superior major. A friend suggested, halt-humorously that she use her influence to oust the invader.

The argument is that Hirohito is the direct descendant of a line of emperors, which isn't true; that his person has always been sacred, which isn't true; and that a regenerated Japan may "rally' 1 about him after the war. which is improbable. The truth is that the legend of the sacred emperor is a modern invention; that it was combined with the cult of Shlntoism to serve the purposes of Japan's latter-day tycoons and war lords; and that it is tied in with a twentieth century feudal system which makes for slavery and for war. To some extent Hirohito is a victim of the emperor cult.

He didn't climb into the job. He was born into it. But there is no evidence that he has ever clone anything but go along with the Japanese gangsters who surround him. He has been one of the boys in the backroom. He wears uniform, presides at war councils and must have known in advance of every dirty thing- the Japanese army and navy have planned and done since 1931.

We cannot regard him as guilty in the same degree as Hitler. We may suppose that he has been a victim of an unfortunate environment. But we are not called upon to treat him with any more care or respect than any other Japanese who is in arms against us. When Japan surrenders'he should be, like the others, our prisoner. Like the others, ho should cease to command.

We may hesitate to tell Win Japanese What kind of'government they arc to have. We nevertheless owe it to ourselves to tell them that they shall not revive the government which treacherously attacked and butchered our people. We have a right to say that Hirohito must go. There can't be many Americans who don't sooner or later write a letter to a soldier or sailor. The best of such letters tell of what is going on at home.

The serviceman wants to know all about his relatives, friends and neighbors. He would like to know that they are back of him, thinking- of him, doing what they can to help him and not grouching about their own little inconveniences. He wants to feel part of a solid front and home front rolled into one. The treasury department suggests that the serviceman be told of the success of the War Bond drives not the national figures, which he may read about, anyhow, but how they went in the home town. If the town passed its quota he will be proud.

He'll know then that the home folks are backing him up with something besides kind words It's true that they are just lending their money, whereas he is investing his time and risking his skin. But he can be made to understand that they are doing- what they can. Letters to the fighting men might also tell how the Red Cross campaign is going, what is being done to find jobs for discharged soldiers and so on. ice people we will want to make it ice people we will want omake it good news. Our war activities will be carried on in front of the invisible soldier and sailor audience And this very fact ought to stimulate us to a more energetic and unselfish war effort.

The landing of American troops at Hollandia and Aitape on the north coast of New Guinea advances MacArthur a big step nearer his heart's of i the Philippines. Once Hollandia's air-fields are in our hands, they will provide bases from which our heavy bombers can reach the Philippines.

The landings also isolated another 60,000 Japanese who face annihilation.

Over on this side of the world German military experts profess to believe the invasion of France can come at any time so do a lot of other folk. One of the most encouraging developments is the Allied announcement in London predicting early (instruction of the Nazi air force. The attack on the Nazi aircraft industry, now reaching a climax, is termed a success, though "not yet a complete one." For three months the German fighter force has lost more planes than its plants could manufacture.

This doesn't mean that the Hit- lerites aren't holding- a considerable fleet in reserve for defense on D- day.
