FACE TITO BLYTHEVTLLB (ARK.)' COURIER NEW! FRIDAY, JULY T, 1MK> tit* Notmi Today! Tti« MuniHom Board if War C*m»i— Government Agency Stockpiles Heeded Minerals lor U. S. War By JAMES MARl.OW WASHINGTON. July 1. UP} — When this country got inlo World War IT, It needed some new plants, and had to build them, and It badly needed a lot of minerals for war. To avoid a repetition of this If we got Into anolher war, Congress In 1947 pissed an act sotting up a government munitions board with * couple of Important Jobs: plants and materials. Congress voted money for the board to buy up and lay away—or stockpile—two kinds of materials: 1. Materials of which we don't have enough In Hits country. 2. Materials we need from other countries because they might be shut off from us, ss rubber was In World War II. The materials. as bought, sre stored away In warehouses and In Army and Navy depots. 71 : Items on l.lsl The board has 71 Hems on Its list, of scarce and strategic materials. Here are some of them, with some ot the countries from which they're bought: Manganese (for -steelmaklntrl from the African Gold Coast, Brazil. Chile, Cuba. Mexico; tin..from the Belgian Congo. Bolivia, the Netherlands East Indies; bauxite for making aluminum! from British Guiana, and the Netherlands East Indies. This .stockpiling Job. started In 1947. was supposed lo be completed by 1952. It's far from complete and probably won't be completed by ID52. Needed Bluff Stockpiled Right now some of the needed atuff has been'stockpiled 100 per cent. Some other Items haven't been stockpiled at all. Only about 40 per cent of the total stockpile which the board decided we should have Is on hand now or has been contracted' for. And only about 40 per cent of the 13,800,000.000 which Congress authorized for spending on this program has been spent to buy up the scarce and strategic stuff. That's •bout «1,S20,000,000 As to plahts-^the government has Its fingers In two kinds: 1. Those which (he' Army and Navy own and operate, such as senals. World War Plants J. Those which were built as war plants In World War .11, later were considered surplus to peacetime ^eeds of the military forces, anc tnire sold or leased to private business. There are about. .270 such plant* Rotarians Hear Seed Expert Work on M«l breeding »t the Hale S«d Farm at Burdett* was explained to members of Bljrth*- vllle's Rotary Club yesterday.

SWASTIKA RETURNS—Th« swastika, «ymbol of tyranny to Nad Germany, has been making mysterious reappearances in the itreetj of Vlolho, Germany, where a number of high-ranking BritUb military officials live.

She had lived on the Mescalero Indian • Reservation here with her son, Robert, Geronlmo's sole survivor, since 1914. Potato Bug* — Red, U.S. or Fabrication? WASHINGTON. July 7. (#•) — Russia's charge that potato bugs were dropped from American planes to sabotage East German crops drew a comeback from the State Department yesterday. The department didn't dignify the Russian note with a direct reply. Instead, It issued a diplomatic statement which said: (A) The charge was a "fantastic fabrication": (B) The Russians borrowed the idea from German Nazi tactics; (C> It was an excuse for a serious potato shortage in Eastern Europe and (D) The bugs. If there were any, must be Communist bugs. Israeli Citizens/tip is foxy JERUSALEM—(flf—It's a simple mailer to become a citizen of Israel Every. Jewish immigrant automatically acquires citizenship the moment of arrival in this country. In great simplicity—It's only five words in Hebrew—the "Law of Return" approved by parliament says: "Every Jew has the right to Immigrate to Israel." I'to5y y work wfttiirflM days. *In addition to this, the munitions board has the Job of arranging with other plant owners for doing war work—If needed. For example: If a certain plant can be con- Terted to tank-making, plans are worked out to be held In readiness. The bonrd is negotiating with 30.000 plants for this kind of wartime Job and >!ready has agreements with about 5,000 of them. Machine Took One more thing: the board also Is responsible for stockpiling ma.- chlne tools that would be necessary in wartime/ This means industrial equipment—for example, measuring devices. If ;they weren't stockpiled to iome extent, in case of war, the lovernment would have to search the country for them or lose lime In getting them made. About 150,000 machine tool items are In stockpiles now in Army, Navy and Air Force warehouses. Chairman of the munitions board Is Hubert E. Howard, appointed by the President out. of civilian lift He used to be In th« coal business. His fellow-board members are three Important civilian officials of the three urmed services:'John T. Koehler, assistant secretary of the Navy; Archibald S. Alexander, un- dersecrctnry of the Army; and Eugene M. Zuckcrt, assistant secretary of the Air Force. ... the letters start.
