The American people know that rationing of consumers goods is necessary and they are ready to accept whatever restric tions are necessary. But most o all they want the government to make up its mind. They are tired of generalities; they want particu 'ars. Five war agencies of the govern ment came out Thursday with th< statement that the government ni longer would risk the lives of sea men "so someone will have gasolim to go to a bridge party or a bal game." That statement followed an announcement the day before that gasoline would be rationed be ginning May 15 in 17 eastern states But 1he official statement left thi degree of the rationing undeter mined. The reporters tried to find ou just how much gasoline a ca owner would be allowed to buy There was no official statement but semi-official quarters said thi amount would be two and a half to five gallons a week. That was the definite news the eastern car own ers wanted to know. So did car owners over the rest of the nation lor that matter, because if ration ing is imposed in the eastern states it probably will be imposed ove: all the country before long. That report had scarcely been printed when Price Administrato: Henderson and Secretary Ickes said the estimate of two and a half to five gallons a week was too low. But still there were no definite figures. Mr. Ickes, evidently remembering the unpopularity of last summer's curfew on gasoline stations in the east, said the government planned to "supply as much gasoline as possible" to civilian users. Of course it does. But how much will that be? The people realize that the government has to make abrupt decisions. They expect them. But ihey want the decisions made without a lot of unnecessary preliminary announcements lacking in specific details. The people are counting on making sacrifices. They don't need a lot of propaganda to prepare them. But they expect the government to decide what those sacrifices shall be and quit stalling. There was a let of fumbling around with the sugar situation and it contributed to the present stringency. Some of the people got panicky about sugar last summer when no shortage was hi sight and they began laying in supplies that created .the very shortage they feared. Then along came the war, the shutting off of normal trade routes for sugar imports, and with it increased need to divert more sugar to alcohol manufacture. But rationing, which could have produced a fairer distribution of sugar is only now going into effect. A while back the allotment .was going to be 12 ounces per person each week; now it's going to be eight ounces. At the moment transportation is the bottleneck for gasoline sup plies. The eastern states have been getting almost all their gasoline by tankers. Submarine the Atlantic coast and the need to divert tankers to carry gasoline for military uses is making it necessary to fall back on railroad tank cars. The railroads simply cannot deliver all the gasoline wanted, Jience the need to ration the supply. That condition seems likely to grow worse and the effects may spread all over the country. Even if trans- poration difficulties do not Increase, military demands for gasoline are going to multiply. That means civilian rationing. The people know it. What they want to know is •when and how much. Indecisiveness and hesitation by Washington in handling the civilian aspects of the war effort are not good for the people's morale. The plain fact is that the people are ahead of the administration Congress in their thinking CLOSER TIES WITH MEXICO When representatives of the 21 American republics at the Rio de Janeiro conference considered all- out defense measures against the Axis, Dr. Ezequiel Padilla, Mexico's foreign minister, rendered yeoman service. Last week in Washington Dr. Padilla and Sumner Welles, Undersecretary of State, announced a new program of industrial co-operation between Mexico and the United States. The program is further evidence of the practical wartime joint efforts of the two countries. It is another example of the good results of the Good Neighbor policy. Both countries will gain from the program. It calls for the development of Mexican industry, including the construction of a steel and tin-plate rolling mill from Export- Import bank funds, additional equipment for Mexico's railroads possible construction hi Mexico o] small cargo ships, the building of a high-octane gasoline refinery in Mexico with equipment from this country and the grants of priorities and allocations for materials basec on Mexico's needs hi relation to our own war production effort The early conclusion of a reciproca trade agreement also is providec for. Mexico is treated liberally but there can be doubt that the economic strengthening of Mexico is a matter of genuine importance to the United States. We are thinking of defense in terms of hemispheric defense, and Mexico is one of two countries in the hemisphere most closely related to us. By encouraging and helping home industry in Mexico we are strengthening that country whose strength means much to us, but we also are encouraging the production of supplies that may count a great deal in the prosecution of the war. The war has forced the United States and Canada into virtually a single production unit and the new agreement lines up the third of the large North American nation units. Thus there is a solid North America bound together by mutual economic ties as well as military considerations. Such an arrangement is bound to be carried over into the period after the war. Certainly if the Mexican government and the Mexican people can be convinced by war experience that the Good Neighbor policy is just what those words stand for they will want to continue and expand it in peacetime.

Deny Agreement That,Closed Shop Should Be War Labor Board Issue NEW YORK, April 25 iam P. Witherow, president of the National Association of Manufacturers, and Charles R. Hook, chairman of the employers group in the industry-labor no-strike agreement, denied last night .that employer members ever agreed that the closed shop should become an issue " "or arbitration before the War Labor Board. In indivadual statements they challenged the AFL-CIO claim that the agreement provided "union security" issues were to be settled by the board, a convention upheld by the War Labor Board last night. "I have .been charged with violating a pledge which the record shows was never given," Witherow declared. "The one thing I have yledged my country is my utmost effort to help win this war. And the closed shop is not a win-the- war measure." Hook's statement that the "closec shop" issue was not a part of the no-strike agreement was agreed to and authorized by eight other employer members of the labor-management conference from which i stemmed, the group announce! after a day-long meeting. "The statement by the War Labor Board is not a correct inter pretation of the position on thi closed shop maintained by the em ployer members of the President's December conference on war-time labor relations," Hook said. "The board's assertion that Mr Afitherow's statement 'runs counter o the pledge signed by Mr. Witherow and the other eleven industry members of the conference' is- not n accord with the facts. No such pledge was signed by Mr. Witherow >r by any other employer members. The conference adjourned on December 23rd without agreement on the closed shop issue. "The record of the conference clearly confirms this. The last act of the employer members in the conference was to propose a resolution containing the following paragraph: "The proposed War Labor Board shall be governed by the following basic policy: " 'Since the right to work should not be infringed by government order through requirement of membership in any organization, whether union or otherwise, the issue of the closed ship is not a proper subject for consideration or arbitration by the board and shall not be included as any issue in any dispute certified to it.' "The conference deadlocked on this issue. The moderator, William H. Davis, so reported to the President, and the conference was instructed to meet the next day, at which time the moderator read a message from the President. There was no discussion of this letter. The conference then adjourned, without any action being taken of any kind . and without any agreement being reached on the closed shop issue." plant.

SWEDES PROTEST LONDON, April 25 UP) — The Swedish legation was reported today to have lodged a protest with the British government over alleged infringement of the Swedish arms law on the occasion of the re- off cent attempt by 10 British-chartered Norwegian ships to escape from Goteborg to Britain. [A Stockholm dispatch last nighl said Sweden's protest was foundec on the charge that British employees had smuggled 20 machine-guns aboard the vessels, only two of which succeeded in reaching Britain while six were sunk and two returned to port.] and and what they want to do to win this \var.

S., including sidings and yards, amounted to 405,975 miles in 1940. a general proach to ap- the whole question of survival wages and survival salaries and survival profits. Mr. Roosevelt likes the name "War of Survival" as descriptive of the second World War and it is apparent that he intends tc apply the principle at home as well as on the minefield. The first organization since Pearl Harbor to come out for the >rinciple of survival profits was he National Association of Manu- iacturers but the question of what formula should be used to determine "survival" has never been satisfactorily outlined either by the government or by private organizations. • • • Any horizontal yardstick that cuts across all businesses without regard to the variety of conditions that exist will tend to create confusion and disruption and may have such a devastating effect on the national economy as to retard the war effort. Thus one company with a large capitalization if permitted to earn six per cent on that capital while 99 per cent of the remainder is taken in taxes by the government as is reported to be the Administration plan, might earn much more than a competitor which has no large capital structure. Many American businesses have grown up by plowing back each year's earnings into the business without issuing new capital stock. Unless such companies are permitted to recapitalize on the basis of their present worth in relation to the same types of business with which they compete there is bound to be inequity and hardship. • • • During the last war, the Congress gave the Treasury Depart ment flexible authority out o. which was developed for excess profits purposes what were known then as artificial capital bases The amount of money invested in developing a business over a long period of years was set up as "cap tal" on a formula whereby a com- arative system of valuation with ompetitors was used. Something of the same kind wil have to be established this time if antastic results are not to be 'orced on some businesses with the lossibility that companies in debi may have to default on bonded is- ues or on bank loans unless they are allowed to pay off debt out o: earnings. Some plan whereby a- normal amortization of debt may first b< deducted and then a limitation jlaced on all profits would probably save many businesses from dissolution or bankruptcy. * » • Broadly speaking the idea o: imiting profits and confiscating all above a certain fixed percent age is gaining ground in Congress The idea of taking all profits above the survival level may provi .0 be the very leverage with pub ic opinion that the Administration "eels it needs in putting a ceiling on wages and putting an end tc the agitation for higher wages. I Business is put on a survival basis, so must eventually labor b placed on an analogous footing. It may well be that the Presi dent has not felt he could tackl the wage problem till he disposet of the high salary or high profi question. Certainly once such drastic limitation is imposed, la bor politicians will no longer be able to argue persuasively that wages need not be held down because profits are skyrocketing. It is said that 350 companies in the United States have $85,000,000,000 of war contracts. Doubtless many of these contracts are farmed out through subcontractors. But it is probable that any rule intended to recapture profits in these war business cases will do extensive damage to non-war businesses which while benefitting indirectly from war business are nevertheless showing no such increase in volume as are concerns with war contracts. If a surgical operation is to be performed on the national economy by means of profit limitation, and something of that kind is desirable in order to form a background for a common sacrifice by all classes, the task is not going to be accomplished by a flat percentage system applied to war and non-war businesses. Something more flexible by way of a formula will be needed. ow's" heels. It leads non-fiction on he latest Baker & Taylor list. Defense Will Not Win the War, ieut. Col. William F.

Out Of Doors In Michigan By WALTER KITTINGEB It seems that everywhere I go le question is, "Where're you oing to open?" The reference is o Saturday, the 25th, the opening ay of trout season. The fratern- ty of Waltonions is large and good ews awaits them. Reports from the Upper Penin- ula indicate excellent water con- itions generally. Snow is almost U gone and streams are normal r will be on the week end unless eavy rains develop. At the tip of the Lower Peninsula he rivers are high and muddy but re expected to be nearly normal y the 25th. Most all woods, roads and trails are passable. Alpena - Montmorency - Presque sle territory streams are nearly at lormal and clear. Road conditions good. Oscoda, Ogemaw, Alcona and osco county waters are high but lear, with the rainbow run well nder way. The Platte and Benzie in Benzie ounty are right for brooks and rowns; plenty of rainbows run- ling. Grand Traverse county treams are high and dark but hould be cleared by the week end. Belanger Pond is right for browns, and the Solon, Clear, Brook, Cedar. Northport and Hodek creeks in .eelanau county are prime foi brooks. Manistee and Wexford county streams are in good condi- :ion. Near Baldwin the Pere Marquette, Baldwin, Middle Branch, .ittle South and Little Manistee are only slightly above normal anc bit discolored. The rainbow run s just well under way and the big spawners should be in the streams until at least 10 days after the opening.
