U. S. Employment Service is praised by the industrialists for Helping to\ recruit the war plant abor that raised Wichita's populn- fion from 100,000 in 1933 to 200,000 In the words of ex-Gov. Henry J Allen, the town lias changed from' a biicohe center to a place with night clubs and labor racketeers all -irouud. He admits they're a little bit backward on the labor racket- coring but assumes tjnit by tlie next world war, Wichita on that score will be as far along ns any place else Wichita was as much interested hi the Montgomery Ward case as Chicago or Washington because tlie city iad been through a similar experience of its own, and the plight of Sewcll Avcry struck home.

A. P. of'L won ..the election, and in October Boeing signed a year's contract with a War Labor- Board-imposed maintenance of membership provision. Today, the company's check-off records show that only 4000 of their 15,000 eligible employes arc members of the union. Those of the 4000 who want to resign from the union can't, because of the maintenance of membership clause.

WLB Ol'ENS IIKAKINRS The Kansas City regional war Vaboi' Board has just conducted an nteresttng experiment in Wichita, In an effort to popularize itself ami familiarize everyone with its problems and its methods. The 12-man tripartite board came lo town for three days. On the first day it met with employers ami gave them a chance lo flic their bellyaches ami have them talked over. In the evening, it met lo bear the beefs of the labor organization leaders. On the second and third days the board held public hearings on Wichita cases before it, Inviting the people m to .•jce how it worked in lUs goldfish bowl, and how 1 and why it made its decisions jis it, did. Office of Price Administration is, of course, din most cussed of tlie Government war agencies, but Unfeeling that OPA programs and the need for rationing were not understood, frequently heard from other parts of the country, was not found in Wichita.

So the U. S. Army uses Sinclair lubricants for many of its tanks, jeeps and other mechanized equipment. SAVE WEAR WITH To give your car the same, sure protection, get Sinclair lubricants from your Sinclair Dealer. To protect your engine, fqr example, he offers Sinclair Opaline Motor Oil.
