EDSON IN WASHINGTON Food Price Control Problems HV 1'KTKH EDSON Courier N'civs Washington Canadian Anuy To Place Men By "Profile" O1TAWA (UP)— The Canadian Army Ls having its "profile" taken. The "profile" is LI new physical and mental rating scale enllcd Ihe. Pullicuis System, devised by the Dominion's medical .staff to place soldiers into Ihe exact overseas duties for which they are best fitted. Every soldier-, before he is accepted for duly outside of Canada, is to be examined on the basis of his entire makeup. His grade in each of seven divisions will be posted on one card. Headquarters can then speedily .select men qualified to fill specific jobs. The seven categorle.s Canadian authorities arc interested in are: Physique, Upper body and Upper limbs, Locomotion or 1/uver limbs, Hearing, Eyesight, Mentality and Kmotioual Stability. Put the capital ietler.s together and you have PULHEMS, the name for the test. Under each of Hie seven initials there will be gradings from one down to five. A mark below the rating of four, in any one of the KCVCN groups, will mean a man is not acceptable for any type service. Once the Pulheins test is in full use, and it now is ready for adoption all through Canada, according lo National Defense headquarters, correct placement of soldiers will be out of the hit-or-miss class. l-'or instance, the man with flat feet probably cannot stand up under rigorous infantry service. The assignment, 1 ; officer who uses this "profile" will sec, inslend, that he, perhaps, becomes a truck driver or a mechanic.

The situation on attempts lo conlrol food prices al the present moment can best be described as "government by yes and ho." Pew decision arc rnnde definilely "yes." Few decisions arc made definitely ' ; no." ' Practically all decisions, whether on wages, prices, or taxes, have been mndc with the apparent idea of trying to keep everybody happy with a "yes and no" answer. The trouble isn't lack of n principal on which to operate. The principles on which the anlt-infla- lion campaign was to be fought were stated definitely by the President's llold-Thal-'Llne order of April 8, 1043. The trouble has come through failure lo execute those noble aims decisive action. Too much compromise. Too much "yes and no Three cases may illustrate what Is meant: 1, There is a fundamental difference of opinion between Office oi Price -Administration and War Food Admiiiistrnlion on food price con- lrol. 0|>a says "yes,", we must have price; ceilings at all levels. The WFA'idea seems to be "yes if price ceilings are high enough to encourage production, but "no" i price ceilings are lo be applied U growers. Practically every food price ceiling which OPA has proposal has been questioned by WFA am has had to be referred to the Of fice of Economic Stabilization fo decision. COMPROMISED DECISIONS Justice James E. Byrnes, who held that office till he was promoted lo the Office of War Mobilization, won his rcputalion in Congress as a great compromiser. Ills I decisions in OS have been compromises. Judge Fred M. Vinson, jvho succeeded Byrnes in OES, was ilso a great compromiser in Confess. How he will give decisions -n OES remains to be seen. 2. If ceilings arc to lie applied on wholesale and rclail food prices but- not on growers' prices, the only way in which such economic- juggling can be achieved is through payment of subsidies, yet on the subsidy /lucslion Ihere is more yessing and noing that on any illicr phase of the price allcmpled conlrol program. Authority for subsidies in the Price Conrlol Act ,passcd by Congress, yes. The Attorney General gave an opinion last August, on a canned tomalo juice question, that _!>vermnent subsidies are legal, yes. Subsidies have been a part of the RFC program since 1940, yes. Commodity Credit Corporation Is now paying subsidies lo food canucrs, yes. Bui Congress on subsidies says "no." Recently it has written in prohibitions against the use of Lend-Leasc and CCC funds for subsidies and has before it a bill i to prohibit the payment of subsidies on food products without Congressional approval. And War Administrator Chester C. Davis has declared that general de- pendcncc on a broad subsidy pro-ain, lo hold prices, would be dangerous. Another "no." 3. Food canners today are losing (lily Workers To Aid Fanners In Purl Time ood, throwing it away, because liey can't gel labor. The reason hey can'l gel labor is thai wanes Ihc canning industry have been rozen at a level so low they can't ompcle with belter paying Indus- ries. In some regional War Labor Board offices, approval has been given to pay n higher wage rate, yes. To pay lliese added wages. Hie canners say there must ho an up n celling prices on their products o pay for the Increased labor crops. Approval for such price increases mist come from OPA. Yet wlihin OPA there is a "yes and no" but- tle going on which prevents (he making of any decision on this is- ,uc. WFA ON SIDELINES One group in OPA says "yes", give them price Increases lo covet 1 their ;iddcd costs, but no moic. The oilier group says "no," price ceilings must be held al present levels and the inference is that the canners can go jump in one of llieir kettles and stew in their own juice. Wan Food Administration sits on the sidelines in this dispute, feeling riither desperate about the situation, wondering how more foc-c Is going to be produced in tin. heavy canning season coining up if a solution can't be found in the light asparagus and spinach cunning season now at hand. Maybe it is unpatriotic to bring things up fu show how your government monkeys around. Maybe this is just the democratic process iu action, striving to find the best possible solulion. Yon may hope lhat's the answer, but it certainly Isn't out of oriler to mention that there's ti war on and time's a-xvast- n'. MUAVAUKEB (UP)—Wisconsin's fight on Hie farm front lo produce food for victory, despite sbortugi' ol labor and other faun ncct'sxitle.s, will be aided (his year by 2(il),00l) workers, affiliated with the American Federation of Labor. Recently till' State Fedcrallon of Ijibor executive board agreed that (be city workers should give their farmer neighbors a helping hand. The bourd then directed each of central bodies In the [!9 tnnjor cities of Ihc slate lo orgmil/.e help | for Ihe farmers in Ihclr areas, '['lie worker's will be regislered along with other people who wish lo Join the movement. The committees, besides regisler- uig volunteers, will go lo the farmers and tell them what lime they c,un give to farm ivork. •Secretaiy-lrciisincr of the ' A PL stntc federation, William Nagorsne, suld the United States Kmployment Service lines up full-time workers to send to the farms "but this program will be to get part-time help from the city worker. After all, people can't take. long trips on their dny.s off tills year, so why shouldn't they be willing to give that time lo help the war effort along the food front." Give Black Cat Credit CHICO, Cal. (UP.)— Members of the Black Cat air squadron doing duty in the Southern Pacific attribute all llieir 'luck to the name which they chose for the squadron, according to Chief Aviation Pilot Kirk Dunwoody, home on vacation. He reports the squadron has made ICO bombing missions without having a man hurl, although several planes have been lost. The squadron has lo its credit three Japanese ships and several submarines. Other factors being equal, smaller the wing, the faster plane, up to a certain point. >m, RHEUMATIC PAIN «»* i M^ltlif ttut «lll Prtn hull If you suffer from rheumatic pain or muscular aches,buy C-2223 today for real pain-relieving help.
