IDLE A confidential "survey of the current accumulation of ! in ventories reveals them,' to be more mountainous than ever before in the nation's history. With: industry straining to; produce at , top speed,- the uneven distribution of supplies has led the inner .-circle to demand drastie mobilization and allotment of raw and semi-finished goods. yf. '-i ' . j i-' ; The surplus oni shelves, in yards and warehouses now represents an investment of almost twentyTeight billion dollars, i i That! figure . is seven billion more than was stored away a year ago and) almost two billion more than hadi been pilM ud at the time of the I Pearl Har bor atUck. It (is ithe result of . heavy forward buying and varir ous limitations Cn sales. But the disturbing , feature; is that while a certain key industry may b starving for metal required to make weapons, a plant down the railroad track may be rolling in. riches.' The situation explains ; why there may be bottlenecks in 'the; aviation, setup arid no difficulties in tank j factories. It ;accounts " in part fori the failure ,f small firms to obtain government; contracts; they cannot afford -ttotie up cash in large volume. ! W. rl B. and R., F. C. have tackled this problem, with extreme caution They have commandeered 60 j stock . piles ; affecting 17 vital commodities, an4 they have negotiated many voluntary sales of idle materials by i manufacture ers. : But they have not tried confiscation and rationing on a large scale, despite economists recommendations. They shy "; away from such regimentation, : The experts calculate that inaugural tion "of this admittedly novel and difficult experiment1 would mean better timing . of J production schedules, speeding up conversion and raising the; general level of output by twenty-five per cent. Unused stuff jeopardizes victory as effectively as motionless' machines and untrained troops.; r , t i -! ? ." SCION The administration has capitulated once morej to the rip-roar ihg.

His charges that numerous government employes are or have been affiliated iwith questionable and subversive organizations will be thoroughly Sifted by a White House committed.

' Federal workers were informed that - jthey ; would not endanger their j official status if they paid no heed to conimittee subpoenal. Bui F. D. R. soon took quietnsteps to meet public unrest resulting from! the j revelations. With a hundred thousand dollars F. B. T. chieftain J.1' Edgar Hoover .set afoot' an investigation of all suspects. He recently i filed a list of two thousaijd names on Uncle Sam's pay roll against whom he believes he has made a prima facie case. j ' j 1 : ' Atty. Gen. Biddle has appointed a court to pass on trie Hoover complaints. It is headed by Interior Under Secretary John J. Dempsey. He was a member1 of the Dies committee, and though sympathetic to Martin's underlying aim, he frequently protested against sta? chamber proceedings and blacklisting, of innocent j people. Other "judges" are j Assistant . Treasury Secretary Herbert E. Gaston and Commerce Under Secretary Wayne Chatfield Taylor. Mr. Gaston i was formerly associated witth the radical Non-Partisan .league, but for years he has been' a trusted Mor- genthau subordinate.
