Model Service Center Tackles Problems of Mustered-out Men BY CAROL HERMAN NEA Slaff Wrller NEW YORK,—When GI Joe is mustered out, he Isn't going to be shifted from p'lllnr to. post here while lie tries to pick up the threads of his civilian life. All llic nformation he needs about Jobs, ifins, medical care, educational opportunities, will. be wailing for him —without red tape and in one place at the Veterans' Service Center. Organised ns a GHQ for solving :hc veteran's problem in n single interview, or directing him to the proper agency when he needs subsequent service, the Center's progress is being watched with interest by all communities anxious (o give returning servicemen the best possible break. So for the New York Center differs from veterans' services in other places in (hat It has been set »P with Army and Navy ciicoiir- iigement under auspices of the War Manpower Conservation Committee, on which all public and private, federal, state and local agencies Concerned with problems of vct- :rans are represented. It is being privately financed by these agencies. OFKKIt MANY SERVICES Thirty persons under Louts L. Bennett, executive director, staff the Center. Trained interviewers have been assigned by the 0. S. Civil Service Commission, tlie Re- Employment Service, the U. S. 1mb- tlitation Division of the N. Y. State Department of Education, and the New York City Board of Education. A panel of doctors has volunteered to be available foil consultation. An intensive newspaper and radio drive is expected to direct returning servicemen to the Center. When they conic in, they will tell their stories just once. There will be no painful .rehashes. Information n-iii be recorded and passed along to any agency whose business it is to know it. If llic serviceman wants his old job back, is fit for it, and is having difficulty, the Center will sec that the re,-empk>ymcnt division of •Selective Service legally charged with reinstating veterans In former JO)K helps him out. If he wants his job back, but is not quite ready Tor work because of physical or psychiatric disability, he will be directed lo agencies thill can provide care for him and financial aid for his family while lie i.5 being made employable.

TIIKEE BV 1'liTKIl liDSON Courier Ncns Washington Tills present manpower crisis over the ^0-year-olds—which by rough fount would be manpower crisis number l-t If anyone had Inkcn Uu; trouble to keep a llsl—tins brought to llgiit more conlllcllni! Information than anything yet, Two years iigo Die exports on the Wai Mimpowcr Coining ;lou were i ivliiR tlmt the country couljl never jet by without imlloim! service legislation. Tlie While House is supposed to have thrown cold wat-.'r on I the proposal at llial limn, to WMC got busy mid tried to work out Ihe program hy voluntary controls. Today Ihe While House'favors national .service legislation uml the manpower lx>ys arc saying that the -nmlry can get by wllliout It. Politically you might Ihlnk th.it llic clmnccs for any general national service legislation being passed before llic elections would tic nil. On the other hand, there is some opinion that when the Invasion of Eil- )pe begins and the casualty UsU pile up, tlie country and Congress will be thoroughly aliirmcci and will pass national service legislation in n linrry, Ignoring political considerations. This lust argument may be in thc I uluie of trying to persuade Con-' _rcss lo take acllon immediately. But Iho reluctance of Congress to rush through any national service legislation now Is perfectly understandable, for there Is perhaps less agreement on. this subject than on any issue ill Washington. WHY AM, TIIK mmiiun? The bitterness of tlic light over ncn of 20 and under who have teen Icfefrcd because they arc in esseii- lal Industries would seem to IK all out of proportion, lo (he number of men involved. There are less than a million such men, 500.000 on farms, 400,000 In industry. If Selective Scr- 'ice averages on rejections would ipply, over a third would lie found unfit for military service. Employers arc still too prone to hoard physically acceptable men, Industrialists are wanting to keep lliclr young technicians, farmers arc wanting every man they can get. Yet if tlie armed forces say they need these men for active service, who can dispute it? This conies first. It should be made clear, however, that Ihcse men arc needed as replacements and not, as additional manpower requirements. The goals of 7.100,000 men for the Army and 3,000,000 for the Navy, set for attainment by July I, still stand. The Army program Is .understood to IK up to or niicncl of schedule. The Navy prog ram lags a little, partly because ships have been built and put in service faster and in greater numbers than had been believed possible. Quotas ot meil being asked for by the services now arc to replace bailie casualties and men discharged from active service for other reasons. Even nftor the 11,300,000-mcn goal Is reached, replacements will still be necessary. Till: MANPOWER SUPPLY IS ADEQUATE On the home front, the war ,1115- iluction front, goals have all been met. Even ;"irjn goals. In munitions industries, over 200,000 men have already been laid oft. Therf are only Tour tight Industries inso- far as manpower rcqulreinenls me concerned—conl mining, longing, lumbering and railroading. Nutlnu- iilly, the supply of manpower Is vdi - f|iuitc, though in speclilu liH'iililu-.i and Individual factories or Imlns- tilt's Ihe supply may be short. Moving the .sitrplu.s men mid «•». men to Ihe shortage ureas takrs managing, but lo say that this country of IM.OUO.OOO people faces a manpower crisis wllh a breakdown of the civilian services Is much like the other iiltempls to make crises ou( of (lie draft of piv-I'onrl Harbor fathers or of 18-ye»r-uWs, In achieving (his iniiiiiiKenirnt <<f manpower, War Manpower Commissioner Paul V.
