(UP) — Statements disparaging prophesies by the National Association of Manufacturers that prices would level off within a reasonable time after abolition of price controls" we re described today as "sheer nonsense" arid "barefaced lies" by the NAM •News, weekly publication of the manufacturers organization. The publication said such statements formed tlie "party line of the 'planners' who now are frantically trying to recapAurc the ghost, of OPA: or some oUier form of managed economy." ' "Production of manufactured goods is up—way up," the publication said, "and. "When production gets into full swinf, competition is operating as a brake on prices . . . it is safe to predict that had nat so many monkey -wrenches been thrown into the economic machine last year, we'd not te faced today with tlie serious problem of high prices." The NAM News added that "1940 produced a record wave of strikes Vfhich cost 110,000,000 man-days of production at a time, it was most needed to case inflation pressures." Living casts actually, declined last December and in Jnnunry and February of this year, the publication said.

Matter of fact, your sort isn't needed in any hospital I over saw, and I've ;een my share of 'em. Hal" Snoring, Pop fumbled for a tissue. The box dropped from the table, and Malcolm sprang to retrieve it. Pop looked at him, his old eyes tired. "Take over, will you, son?" he said wearily. "I'll be glad to, sir! Though I Eli ink your temper luis overcome your, judgment." Malcolm turned to Woodward, his face stern. "The Hospital does need Woodward, Pop, so I'm not in favor of firing him. A pediatrician, a good one, is not easily.come by.". "You can't work with a man like him!" " I en n wo rk w ith hi in," Mai- col in sail! tightly, "And 1 can see that be works." lie glanced briefly into Andrew's bleak eyes. "I am sure Dr. Woodward agrees with mo." "But Malcolm," Pop fretted, •ho—" "You can't tell me one thing about what he is, or what he's clone! 1 know, and Woodward knows thnt I do. That point is very important. It's the bolt drawn from his gun. Besides—" His glance focused sharply upon the troubled face of Andrew Woodward. I; I think Ihc situation here in tho Lair, and Dr. Woodward's position, is going to be—er—- clumped under the new scUup." "You mean—?" Pop prompted, his little eyes bright. Malcolm was standing very rrccl; bis voice rang with convic- ion. "Dr. Woodward is to blame, •cnlly, for the improvement. His contribution may have been involuntary, but it was he who Ij rough I u s D r. G rcgor, and ccr- lainly he was the one to improve my vision." "So you want to keep him on, out <iC gratitude'.-"' Pop asked softly. Malcolm laughed. "Well, perhaps not gratitude. Bui 1 want to keep him hero." "Serve him right," Pop mumbled. Then he glanced sharply at Andrew. "You heard what Dr. Glenn said?" he asked meaningly. "And don't be coming to me with your complaints 1 .
