Steps lo meet labor's objections to these plans arc now being taken by the War Department. It has worked out a program for wartime labor control, plans to submit it to leaders of the CIO nnd A. P. pf L. as well as to 'the government's various labor agencies for discussion, and hopes that it can eventually come up with a scheme which will get organized labor's approval. But while the department's officials are sincere in sayin<r that they want a plan which can enjoy organized labor's hearty cooperation, the basic fact is that any such plan |vill rest on the foundation provided-by the depart men t's famous Industrial Mobilization Plan CONSCKII'TION IS BASIS OFijaiOISIUZATiON The crux of this plan is the part which relates to ""•"—=-"- * the army. , story frame barracks. There also will be 'a new incinerator, a cannery which will utilize the products cf- the sanatorium's farm, and a piggery for guinea pigs. New utilities, which will make the sanatorium almost a complete city in itself, include a $150,000 heating plant. This building; 1 will house boilers, for the central heating system, a generator for emergency power production, a laundry for \fhe entire institution, and an ice plant with a capacity of 15 tons daily. Prom the power plant tunnels of reinforced concrete will radiate to carry steam for both old nnd new buildings. Electric wire.?, now overhead, are being placed in underground conduits. The water dis- .ribution system is being improved and extended and a new $32,000 electrically operated sewage system of the activated sludge type is bong installed. Mcdcm Dairy Planned The sanatorium will also get a lew dairy Building, a modern barn, and two tall concrete tile silos. This wrtion of the project includes re- rigeration and pasteurization equipment and laboratory. There will bo talk for 90 cows In the barn and rcom for 200 In the feed barn. Besides providing for new struc- ing this part of thc plan, the ivye committee concluded that In practice it would probably mean thnt an unemployed worker would be forced to take whatever lob the agency offered him. VICTORY CHIEF CONCERN OF PROGRAM < It ought to be made clear of course, that the War Department Is n;l made up of men who m-e out to subjugate labor—or industry either. The Industrial Mobilization Plan was drawn up l o enable n win to be won swiftly and efficiently the strictness cf the controls It sets up for labor are, so lo speak, incidental. And it should be emphasized that the department Is now trying lo work, out'a fcrmula which will be acceptable to labor. But thc Industrial Mobilization Plan itself is the framework on winch the department is workiii" and it at least offers the opnor- tunily—ivlwlher .the opportunity would ever be taken or not—for the. government to clamp on labor nnd also on industry, a lighter and more far-reaching control thnn anything this country has seen The Industrial Mobilisation Plan Is not law now. On thc outbreak of war, or the appearance of a great national emergency, the War Department.-would try to get it enacted .by Congress., ' -.. In Poland's New Refugee Cabinet ures, other buildings get a- horough going-over as a part of he PWA project. Open windows vill be enclosed with porches, roofs vill be jnade noncombuslible, walls 111 be newly plastered and painted nd ceilings of the top steries will e insulated with rock wool and enliiating fans will be placed in tlics. New scientific equipment, X-ray nachines and laboratory devices ospital and office furniture arc ~> included in the project. ••COURTS Q. O.

Those whose drafting is ' deferred because they hold essential jobs in war-essential industries. 3. Those whose drafting is deferred because they, have dependents. 4. Those whose drafting is not desired for any of several reasons —because they are aliens, because they are in prison, and so on. local draft beards would do the classifying, nnd their deeisioas would be final. Suppose, 'now that n worker claims deferred status under Class 2—as an essential worker in an essential industry. No industry would get blanket exemption such as was conferred on the shipyards in the last war. Instead, the worker would have to present his draft board with two affidavits, one from his immediate superior and the other from thc executive head of the firm he worked for. These affidavits would have lo state, first, that the firm was engaged in war-essential activities, and second that this particular worker was essential to its operations. The employer would •• also have to submit an estimate of wl the length of lime it would take ™ him to train-a substitute TIME LIMIT SET . ON DELAYS' . .
