The new vigor and haste with which the Munitions Board is acting in acquiring « national store of strategic and critical materials for use in wartime Is revealed In two recent developments: 1. The proposed' regular and supplemental appropriations for stockpiling for the year ending June 30, 1951, total |i,180,000.000. Last year the apropriatlon was only 1505.000.000. .:• • 2. The board has ahnou'nced that hereafter domestic producers of needed materials might he paid any amount above the world market prire if such payments were justified "In terms of urgent national security need." The second item is of particular Interest. The stockpiling program Is subject to the terms of the "Buy American Act" of 1933. The act re- oulres that when the government does any. purchasing, it shall buy American goods unless their cost is unreasonable as compared to for- cisr! goods. The government 1^ defined n domestic, price as unrea, sonnblc il it Is more than' 25 pe> cent above that for the same inn leiinl purchased from forelg' sources, Allhovgh the' board all alonr could have paid American producer. 1 as much as 25 per cent above thr world price, actually It has nwnrdm' orclfi.s- (0 American bidders only when Ibeir price was equal to or below that of foreign producer? The intent of Congress, according to ihe board's Interpretation. \vat that it should pay no more than the prevailing market price. No l.lnillcil Differential Now. under the new policy, thr board NOT only is prepared to pav a differential on American; goods, but- the differential won't even be limited to 25 per cent. The authority to pay the differentia) without any limit was contained in a recent letter from John fl Steelman, the assistant to the President, to Hubert H. Howard, former chairman ot the board. The reason for the new policy is the need for steamcd-up stockpiling, caused by the present emergency. An official of the Nat/onal Security Resource.! Board, which works closely with the Munitions Hoard-on -stockpiling, says certain war materials are needed qiiEckly which would NOT he available soon enough under policies hitherto followed. Higher prices for certain materials will encourage domestic producers to supply the demand.,He wouldn't suy on what mntei-tals the board might pay a differential.; The Munitions Jioard has iio intention of paying a general; ^subsidy for all materials which can be produced domestically. It will pay the differential only In cases when the payment will enable the board to fill urgent needs. ,. There arc two angles to that. The high prices NOT only will produce the goods that arc wanted In the stockpile, but they also will provide mine operators and other producers \v^Ui capital and incentive to develop domestic sources not hitherto profitable. Some critical materials —, for Instance—are purchased chiefly from abroad, because domestic ore syriplles arc of low quality. But if enough money is spent processing Ilium they can be made as useful as any foreign pro- duct, One objection that President Truman has had to such a program, however, is that It will tend to deplete national resources. As long as the ores are In the ground, he says, they caii always be put to use in an emergency, , Mayor to Visit Falmouth _ FALMOUTH, Eng. —OF)— The mayor of Falmonth. A. V.
