(AI'J—A nalional manpower program uetfan shaping up today as war plants were given lop priority in hiring at the 1,800 federal-state e'mploy- . ment offices. —* The Labor Department, In » special labor market survey and in an address by Its director of employment security, reported: 1. Expansion of the labor force can lake care of President, Truman's doubled goals—a $30.000,000,000 annual rate of defense spending and 3,000,000 men under arms. 2, But, if a call for full mobilization were to bring 12,500.000 men again under arms, strictly civilian Industry would have lo give up o'ne- fourlh of its labor supply. It would'lose 6,600.000 workers. The director of employment security. Rotert C. Goodwin, in » speech prepared for a group of industrialists at Wayne University, Detroit, said that manpower "may again become a major problem." Six More Missco Reserves Called To Active Duty Men Told to Report For Duty with Army Sept. 23 and Oct. 4 Six more Mississippi County enlisted Army reservists have been f dered by Col. H. V. Logsdcn, com- onder of the Joueoboro Di.strlct 01 Ihe Organized Reserve, to report for active duty.

MV-NI teen persons suffered injuries -or were/.felled by smoke today when .'« crowded New York subway train short-r.lrcuited with a vivid flash. Som^ passengers thought Ni YorJc was being attacked by bombers In an outbreak of war. • "People began shouting 'It' war. Bombers," snid Harry Gilbertson, A2. a passenger. Service on the line was halted for half an hour. More than 500 passengers on another train halted by lack of power were led to the street through an emergency exit. He estimated that the country's total labor force—at home and in uniform—can be expanded to meet the needs of the next nine months and could be boosted by 5.600,000 in a war emergency. But he said manpower nevertheless will set the ultimate ceiling on war production. Unemployed Counted The 5,600,000 'figiire does not in- ciude an estimated 2.000.000 or 3.000.000 who might be drawn from the ranks of the unemployed, because they are already counted In the labor force.

'Extension service pathologist, along with Mr. Bilbrey. began a lour of cotton fields east of Big Lake today to Investigate the seriousness of the disease arid possible locations Ior research work. Mr. Bilbrey quoted Dr. Cralley as saying .that the Verticillium wilt in Mississippi County this year is the "worst he has ever seen" and that il looks at present as if the county's yield will b-j cut by 15 per cent. Yields of some crops, Mr. Bilbrey sa.d. may be reduced by as much as 75 per cent. VerUdlJium wilt, he explained, is ca-ised by a fungus in the soil. It causer plants lo shed leaves and some bolls, and thereby stunts the growth ol the plant. Winds Damage Arkansas Towns . TEXAHKANA. Arlc., Sept. 14.

Dining the present partial mobilization. Goodwin said the Labor Department and the cooperating slate employment offices have undertaken a manpower program with these key points: 1. Expanding the labor force by publicizing defense job opportunities, working out recruitment drives, analyzing future labor needs, and steering new plants into areas where unused labor sunplie.s exist. v Defense Plant Priority 2. Giving defense plants a priority claim on job-seekers. This means the local offices will not refer » qualified applicant first (o a civil- Ian factory, no matter how serious its need, if he Is needed In a plant working on war orders. 3. "Advising" the military and selective service on deferment policies which would cause the least possible "Industrial disruption" during draft calls and the summoning of reservists. Success in meeting the manpower problem. Goodwin said, must be based "on an understanding that in time of national emergency factory workeis can be as indispensable as the man in unilorm." Other-Policies Named He named these other policies for dealing .with civilian manpower, "at least In the early stages of moblll- -a,tjon";. , '''•The use of voluntary measures for manpower mobilization to the fullest extent possible; the use of government manpower controls only to the extent necessary to achieve mpbiliiation goals, and the use of foreign labor for specialized needs when necessary." XJoodwin said the decision whether a man should be called into military service or deferred should depend nn where his skills and abili- .tles can be used to greatest national advantage. His statement, 1 ; gained significance from the fact that his superior, Secretary of Labor Maurice Tobin, became the government's manpower policy planner In President Truman's economic mobilization order last Saturday, Trachoma Clinic Here To Be Held Thursday Dr. K.

White Ho-.i&e pre.'-s secretary, told inquiring reporters today that some "routine" resignations have been submilled by other defense officials, but he did not have any names. He also said he did not know which ones, if any, would be accepted. He made it plain that they were mere routine resignations that customarily follow In the wake of a top level departure Irom the government. There was speculation that Assistant Defense Secretary Paul K. Griffith, long a Johnson associate, would be among the lo step out In what may develop into a general shift in the Pentagon .secretariat. All Are Appointee." All six members of that group are Presidential appointees, with Senate approval. 'Ihe customary procedure is for these officials to proffer their resignations to the incoming secretary who may or may not forward them to thc White House. If he wants an official to stay on, he holds up the resignation letter and asks the man to remain. In addition to Griffith, these are the other two assistant defense secretaries and the three service secretaries: Wilfred J. McNeil, assistant secretary in charge of fiscal and budgetary matters; Marx Leva, assistant secretary for legislative and legal matters and the chief liaison officer with Congress. Army Secretary Frank pace; Navy Secretary Francis p. Matthews; Air Force Secretary Thomas Finlelter.
