D, C. — Over n billion pounds of war-produced mag- lesiiun purcluiscd by the ' government at fictitious OPA ceiling prices ol 22": and 20!i cents per pound may in the lone run cost the gov- erniucnl nearly three times this amount. The discrepancy — which would make Ihe government's magnesium cost over CGO million itollnrs instead of something over '200 million—Is one of the more startling facts that should be brought, lo light In a month's Senate Small Business Subcommittee Investigation of the light metals situation, just now getting under way, The '100 million dollar (inference may be merely n matter of bookkeeping it may be that, the Predicts Next War Will Last I But Few Hours GLOUCESTER, Mass., March 2. (UP)—We'll have another war, and l may last only a few hours. Those are the predictions of John I Hays Hammond Jr., who is perhaps I the nation's No. 1 bomb control ex| pert, and holder of 800 patents. Hammond's ideas about World I War III arc startling. The inventor I not only thinks there will be an- I other war. but Unit it will last only I liours instead of years. Hammond says that every capital I in Europe will be in constant dan- |;er of (jitick extermination. And he 1 says highly developed radio-con- I ;rolled rocket bombs will be the I weapon. The bomb expert says wo must |}fi ready the next time, lie siig- 1 jests that we have some soil of a l.vorld-wide spy system to keep the ] United States posted on European ^technical progress. extra costs arc justifiable as war costs. But the extra costs arc there and they are beginning to show now through a number ol closely related facts: 1. The war-expanded magiicsinir production industry is now oper- only 15 per cent of its rated capacity. 2. Nearly all government-owned magnesium plants are now shut down. 3. T here are now tremendous tockpiles of magnesium various!; .slimated ut "double the necessar eserve". and "enough for 10 years jeacetime consumption." 4. The two privately owned mag- icsium producing companies, Dow ltd Kaiser t can more than supply •apaclty. On War Production Hoard llrcclives, Reconstruction Finance Corporation made 52 commitments "or a total of 453 million dollars to build new magnesium plants. H is this 4, r >3 million dollar capital nveslmenl which, if charged oil as i war cost and pro-rated against the approximately one billion pounds of nagncslinn produced between 1DIO and the end of 1945, would add to the actual ceiling prices which the ;ovcrnmenl has paid for Its magnesium an overhead of around 45 cents a pound, or more than double the cost of the metal itself. The 'government is now whole owner of 12 magnesium plants and half owner of a thirteenth. WPB began to cut back these plants' pro duction a year ago, lirst by 50 pei cent, then by shutting them dowi completely. In all, nearly 4000 workmen have been laid oil by these cutbacks and sent to other war jobs. Biggest of (he closed plants is Bi.slc Magnesium in Nevada, onci called by the .Senate War Investigating Committee the worst contract the government ever made.

Permanente had trouble with its early production and costs were higher than the OPA ceiling prices. WPB therefore recommended that Kaiser be paid out- of-pocket costs in the form ol a subsidy. This was done oil 15 million pounds at a cost of $2,100,000, an average of 10 cents a pound. RFC loans to the Kaiser Company to build Permanente total 21! In 1930 U. S. industry actually, million dollars. Kaiser has pledged consumed G.450,000 pounds of magnesium. Under war pressure and panic planning, the industry was expanded 00 times to a rated production capacity of 580 million pounds a year. Today the industry Is operating at a rate < f only 90 million pounds a year, 1^ times greater than prewar the profits of some of his shipbuilding operations to retire this debt, and the Kaiser Company's latest balance sheet shows a surplus of over 32 million dollars ficim which Kaiser says the government loan will be repaid in full.
