COURIER NBW1 U.S. Faces Tough Problem in Finding Workers to Press War Production WASHINGTON, Aug. 1, CAP) — Governmont and industry face A tough problem in finding workers for war production, with the country's labor force already Including BO per cent of the population under 14 years'old. Reporting yesterday that employment In factories and olher non- farm civilian occupations pushes to a record high of 52,144,000 persons in early July, before the impact ol the Korean war was felt, Secretary of Commerce Sawyer commented: "With the nation again approaching Cull employment it mny be necessary once mc*e to find ways to expand our labor force to permit the increased Industrial production and strengthening of the armed forces requested by the President." Aides to sawyer said he made I he statement with "no thought of controls" to force workers to switch to defense Jobs or of drafting defense workers from the ranks of idle persons nob now seeking work. Apart 'from « dwindling total, of Job-seeking unemployed -down' in number to 3,354,000 from an eaily 1950 peak of -1.430,000—tlic-re wore only 45,064,000 non-working Americans H°ecl 14 or more, and 31,000,OCO of these were women, many of them housewives. _ PatriotIc Response Patriotic response, military dm It deferment rights, and (he high pay of defense Jobs, along with curtail* ment of sons non-essentinl activities, combined to provide war industries with workers during World War II. The administration appeared ' to he giving no immediate thought to asking Congress for ' compulsory powers to. "draft" workers for essential industry as they are now being drafted for the armed forces. Labor, force figures announced by Sawyer showed that many people with jobs 'attributable to the pve- Korea business boom were a. long way from working full tilt. The tolal of 61,214,000 civilians listed as Job holders In July included not only any one working one hour or more weekly but also a record number of vacationers—5,500,00 in all—who did no work during the July 2-S week when the figures were gathered. Overall Em pl«j merit Moreover, overall civilian employment was 268,000 lower in July than In June, largely because 433,000 persons dropped out of the ranks ot TTorkers or job seekers. Census bureau analysts said, however, that many of them probably were farm wives who did no work in the fields during early July because of bad weather, Farm wives are counted as employed only when working in the fields for they normally do not seek other outside, jobs. The bad weather slow down of farming operations caiLsed the decline In overall civilian employment In July. Some government experts had expected the total to break above the record high of 61,615.000 set in July, 194fi, due to growing non-farm employment. Farm employment dropped 596.000 to »n fi.440.OCO total in July, more than a million undftr the 9.647.000 figure for July last ye»r. Non-farm employment at it* new height reflected a gain of 3,771,000 over the last 12 months as n result of improved business condition.*.
