PA«B TWO The Notion Today: Biggttt Home front If War Gomes-Uncle Sam's NSRB Has Planning Job on Home Front ' By JAMES MARI.OW + WASHINGTON. July 6. W) — There U one outfit above all oth ers In this country which has the Job 'of planning for war—on the home front—if It comes. This Is the National Security Re sources Board (NSRB). The chairman Is W. Stuart Symington, former secretary of the Air Force. He was appointed to • his present Job by the President. Seven members of President Truman's cabinet sit on this board with Symington.- They.are (he secretaries of the Treasury, Defense. Slate. Interior, Agriculture, Commerce anc Labor Departments. When we got Into World War U we had to go through a slap-dash mess of controlling manpower, getting plants converted to war. putting", controls on such things as prices, arid so on. Congress' Creation So that we'd be a little better j prepared In case of another war. Congress In 1947 passed an act crc- -ating the NSRB. We'll never know how, well it's done its job of preparing for another war unless we get Into another one. The NSRB hns a staff of about 280 people, mostly specialists In Industry, economics and other, fields. The board's purpose can be stated this way: to advise the President on how this country's wide resources—men, material, and plams —can be fitted together to work together in wartime. This means having plans ready. Eight OffifM The NSRB has eifiht offices, each with a separate specialty: 1. Manpower. NSRB Is supposed to study, and know, what our wir- tlme needs in manpower will be: how many people needed for military service (NSRB works with tiie armed services on this), how many for war work, what kind of manpower controls we should have. 2. Production. This means a surrey of American plants to finrt out what they can produce In wartime, how they can be converted and to what. (Another agency, the munitions board, makes Ihe actual agrce- , ,atid shipping, trucks, and planes, plus sea transport and even storage. It can be seen from this that the eight offices of the NSRB could be tlie starting points for wartime agencies such as we had In World War II: a manpower commission, a civil defense agency, a war production board, an OPA. (Other government agencies dealing in (lie various fields mentioned above may have plans or Ideas that differ a bit from the NSRB's. But since the heads of thos« ot^er agencies — the members of President Truman's cabinet—sit on the NSRB wilh Symington, NSRB can get the benefit of the varied thinking In the government.} "If War Comri" All Ihls means — or It should mean—that if war comes the NSRB ought to be able to lay in President Truman's hands wide plans for turning the home front Into a huge war effort. 8 Some of those plans he could put into effect by his own executive order. Others, such as price control ami rationing and manpower control, he could turn over to Congress for quick action. If war came tomorrow and the NSRB hart bills ready for Congress to net on. much time would be saved. NSRB h an Independent agency nnd Is responsible to the President.

This means planning to have sufficient supplies of the most vital war materials—like steel, rubber, lumber, chemicals — and what controls would be needed to be/sure they were used for war. Snffleient Planning . 4. Energy • and Utilities. This means planning to have sufficient supplies of coal, oil, gas, water and electric power. And it means) recom- utilities. For Instance: It might ncjin gasoline rationing. 5. Economic Management. This would inclulc plans for food ration- Ing, price control, rent control, taxes, financing the war, and so on 6. Foreign Activities. This covers plans for control over goods that would be shipped out of this country or brought In here. In other words: import and export controls. Civilian Mofoilliallon 7.
