' -me? i »_ s _ THURSDAY, JANUARY 7, 1943" ASK SUPER-CZAR ON WAR OUTPUT Subgroup Calls for Drastic Reorganization WASHINGTON, (£, _ Drastic reorganization of war production and manpower agencies under a sort of super-czar was called lor in a subcommittee report before the senate education and labor committee Thursday. The report was filed by Chairman Pepper (D., Fla.) after extensive hearings. It found a "]ack of balance" in the war production program, and predicted that production would Jail short of goals unless the problem of scarcity in men, materials and: machines was met "head 011." "After a year o£ war," the report said, "the people have learned that the war production board has not been engaged in the business of war production. They are told that the chaos in raw material distribution, long recognized and admitted, will be remedied by the celebrated controlled materials plan which will come into full operation six months from now. "They look hopefuly for improvement in manpower mobilization and wonder whether the recent changes in the war manpower commission will do away with compromise and conflict. They learn that the armed services divide their time on the home front between devising military strategy and attempting to organize war production and manpower. This ·is the method oj partial war, not of total war. It harbors grave consequences for the future." The experience, personnel, training and viewpoint of the military do not fit it for centralized production and procurement planning. ; It therefore proposed "an economic general staff," with a director of war mobilization at the top, directly responsible to the president. , Apply: Enroll in person at nearest U.

Osage Bank Ranks Fifth in Bond Sales OSAGE--In the January issue of the American Banker, a table giving the relative standings as to bond sales of renorted banks in the country showed the Home Trust and Savings Bank oj Osage tied for fifth place in percentage of bond sales to deposits. Percentages were figured on tiie ratio of total E, F, and G bond sales to the deposits of the bank as shown in their June 30, 1942 statement. The Home Trust and Savings Bank qualified in July of 1941 to sell these bonds, and since that time has sold more than 3600,000 Their deposits as of June 30, 1942, were 51,412,030, and th ratio is 42.G per cent. Further than this, the Homo Trust and Savings Bank has sold S277.45C in Victory Fund Committee securities which could not be included in the sales shown in the table. It might be expected thai t e deposits of the bank \vould decrease with the withdrawal of al this money for war bond purchases, but this has not been the case. The Home Trust anci Savings bank reports a deposit total higher than ever before, and other bank are finding the same condition Since it was not compulsory for banks to report their sales to th American Banker, other bank could very possibly have hac higher percentages than those reported, but the publication showed the standing of those banks u-hid had reported to them.
