PAGE EIGHT BLYTHEVILLE. (ARK.) COURIER NEWS WHh th* Nation Today: Whin Spring Comes Rearmament Program Will Mean Less Civilian Goods by Spring By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON, "0V. 11. y ,,_ Charles Sawyer, Secretary of Commerce, says the full Impact of rearmament may hit Industry next iprlng. Which means that about that tune civilians will begin to notice Jess civilian goods since industry will then be up to lt« neck In de- tens* orders. It's In Sawyer's Commerce Department lhat (he National Produc- tion'Authority (NPA) was set up K>me months ago. It's NPA's Job to tell Industry when to cut down and how much on the use of steel or aluminum or anything else which might have gone Into civilian goods but now is needed for defens.e You may have wondered: Since the government has been signing contracts with Industry for months now under the defense program, why will it be next spring before the full impact of rearmament Is felt? , Toollnj Up Time Needed For one thing Industry needs time to tool up to carry out some of the contracts It already has. For another, as time passes, more defense contracts will be signed. This Is an example: An automobile plant which gets a contract for tanks can't switch over In one day from cars to tanks. , It has to get In new machinery, new tools, a lot of new everything. And that takes time, months in some items, before It can slart production. ; Already * great many rearmament contracts have been signed but there're only the first of many. They'll pile up as the months paw, so that Industry will be turn- Ing more of [Is output to armament. i Foil Weight In Spring 86 the experts In government •tern to think that the lull weight of all this will begin to show up In the spring. .' •: Early : this week at Sea Island, Georgia, Secretary of Defense Marshall told a group or business men that the military people In his department are drawing up a four- year-program of military production. . : - Marshall was not ready to estimate how deeply the munitions effort will bite Into civilian goods production. ; But he told the business men this four-year program calls for a steady-rat* of build-up. '. Which means it will try to schedule military orders to Industry In an even way lo prevent temporary ahutdowns or layoffs in Industry. Marine Women Officers HOY.

Switzerland <ft1 — Three Swiss Roman Catholic missionaries have returned to Switzerland after three years In a Chinese Communist prison In Manchuria for alleged collaboration with the Japanese. The three priests, Fathers Friedrich Hort, Johann Imesch and Frann' Senn, reported on their experiences In guarded language, evidently fearful of harming eight other Swiss priests still imprisoned under sentences ranging from five to 12 years. "We suffered greatly from the unclean habits of the other prisoners," father Hort said. "There was an unimaginable .plague of Insects, vermin and nearly all the priests caught typhus—some of them two or three times. We were not ill- treated by the authorities." Father Hort said, "but we suffered from the malice of the other prisoners." A system of public confession was Introduced at the prison, at which every prisoner had to confess his crimes and errors and demonstrate that he was turning toward Communism. "Under this system. Ihe olher prisoners would make false ncciisa- tions against us, In order to enlist the sympathy of the prison authorities," Father Hort said.

"I refer to supervised disarmament . . . enforced disarmament. Disarmament backed up by a United Nations International police force which would contain repre- scnlnllves of all freedom-loving nations and could bring the moral pressures of the rest of the world lo bear on Russia." The Senalor directed other re- larks lo Inflation and, what he termed "a socialistic trend" In the United Stales. "In 1176. the watchword was 'llb- .. ty.'

"But I do not favor government- guaranteed security at the expense if personal freedoms," he said. On Inflation, Senator McClellan iald one of the most pressing problems of Congress was how to fl- innce re-armament and still stay spiralling inflation. "Everyone." he said, "must bear the laic burden connected with arming this nation. I mean that lax-free co-operatives which are in business for profit also must bear their share of the burden In this peril." Of Interest to farmers. Senator . McClellan said he believed the Brannan Plan "as dead as a door nail." The Senator was Introduced by Frank Barham. Tom Callis, president of the Luxor a Rotary Club, acted as maslcr of ceremonies.
