Byrnes, director of war mobilization and reconversion, last night prescribed regulations to govern stoppage of production no longer needed in the war e'fort. He issued an order to government agencies which had three basic parts: 1. Providing for a halt in war contract production in items or quantities beyond military needs unless additional processing is required for reasons of safety or to avoid damage to production equipment and spoilage. 2. Establishment of a financial system to compensate contractors continuing processing.

3. Authorizing agencies of the government to use this overflow production and take over war contracts, particularly for use in civil relief for liberated and occupied countries. The order was signed under authority of the war mobilization and reconversion art and recommended by Contract Termination Director Robert Ilinkley. The plan is designed to end production of war goods no longer needed as rapidly as pos-s ole but not so quickly as to damage equipment or to cause "immediate complete spoilage" of products in production and having "a definite commercial value." Processing, beyond cases excepted in the order, "will be stopped immediately regardless of the state of completion." when additional processing is necessary it shall be ended at "the first practical stop-work stage." action of President Roosevelt in screen debut as both singer and dancer in the South Seas role ALL OVER (f L0RI0A providing temporary haven in the United States for the duration of which she plays in "Song of Tahiti," in which she stars for 343 Central the wan for approximately 1.000 Pepni-Cola Company, Long Island City, AT.

WASHINGTON OI.R) The office of price administration announced last night that east coast and middlewest household consumers who converted to coal heating equipment to save fuel oil will be allowed to return to oil rations around Nov. 1. The announcement followed an earlier statement by Petroleum Administrator Harold I. Ickes that "the improved fuel oil stock position" would allow for reconversion to oil equipment but was not sufficient to permit increasing present rations for oil users. The return to oil heating, Price Administrator Chester Bowles said, will apply only to those small-volume consumers who changed over to coal or some other fuel after July 31, 1912 when restrictions were first imposed.

He said that another rationing change, effective also around Nov. 1, would give residual oil consumers in the east and middlewest larger rations for heating.
