Traveled Different Roads Though their careers have presently led them to the same place, the roads Bill Knudsen and Sidney Hillman traveled in getting there have been as far apart as possible. William Knudsen once said: "Out of 100 men 27 are self- starters, 40 are men who can do what the 27 tell them to do. I don't know what the remaining 33 are doing, and my hope is that my portion of the 33 will be as small is possible." This illustrates the difference in philosophy between the director ;eneral of the office of production management and his associate director general, Sidney Hillman. For fiillman has spent a great part of his .life as a champion of the 33. Knudsen is, in general philoso- ihy, a laissez faire man. He he- ieves centralization, through governmental regulation of business, Both these acts are foreign to Knudsen's philosophy. " . both a decrease in He sees in production. lurts production. Hillman once remarked of aissez faire: "Laissez faire is the policy of every man for himself ind the devil take the hindmost. 3ut I have noticed that the devil not only takes the hindmost, but everything else as well." Cursing the "plague of planless- ness," Hillman plugged hard in the °arly 1930s for a national economic -ouricil. It would have consisted men from each major industry vho would determine what per ent of capital reserves should go nto expansion and what per cent hould go into increased buying lower through higher wages. Although this plan was never adopted, jarts of it greatly influenced the stablishment of the NRA, of which lillman was labor's administrator. What Knudsen thought of the TRA is a matter of record. He ailed it "a crazy voluntary legis- . "There are two schools of thought in dealing with the unemployment problem," he once 'said. "The first is advanced by our labor leaders, who advocate splitting the work up so that more men share the same job. This is not exactly making two blades of grass grow where one grew before because we end up with one blade of grass not any bigger or better but costing somewhat more." The whole philosophy which the New Deal stands for is dear to Sidney Hillman, who broke with John L. Lewis -to re-endorse President Roosevelt Irr a third term. The New Deal philosophy is an anathema to Knudsen, who sees in it trends that will make everyone poor in the long run. "This idea of having everybody get poor so nobody can get rich is not going to work," he once said. "Anywa ; it never has except in ancien Sparta, and Sparta isn't with u anv more." . The Danish blood in his vein shapes much of Knudsen's philos, ophy.

They ar clean and wholesome and sane people, quite unaffected by th crazy ideas that seem to sweep th rest of the world." Both Want Production Surprisingly enough, the basi aim of both Hillman and Knudsen s much the same. Both want in creased production, no matter how greatly they may differ on the wa> to attain and distribute it properly Hillman would be the first to ad mil that only through increasec production can labor have a decem standard of living. Good Civic Rule Asked People can have honest, efficient government and the kind they want if they will put their shoulders to the wheel, because politicians cannot control when the citizens take things in hand, Cecil H. Gamble, chairman of the Cincinnati, O., Civil Service Commission, declared yesterday in an address before the Phoenix Rotary Club in Hotel Westward Ho. Mr. Gamble, who is spending his Second winter in the city, is president of the Cincinnati Young Men's Christian Association, a director of the Procter and Gamble Company, and a Rotarian. Tells Of Cincinnati The address of Mr. Gamble largely concerned the operation of the civil service system in Cincinnati, where he has been chairman for 15 years. He asserted that people needed to keep the light of good government burning 4n the communities of this nation. It has been stated, he said, that Civil service will not function in an emergency. That excuse has been used many times to remove from the influence of civil service certain governmental departments. "I say to you that civil service, wlien properly administered, not only can function In any emergency, hut also Eaves money for the taxpayers In those emergencies," he stated. Mr. Gamble declared the city government of Cincinnati in the early 20's was about as bad as could be found anywhere in the ration. The government was boss- ridden, he said, and graft was rampant in city contracts. The number of city employees increased immensely at election times, he ex- Clubhouse. Associated Women delegates will convene at 9 o'clock in the junior) college clubroom to discuss problems faced by the groups. Bertha Taylor, Phoenix Junior College, will direct the discussion.

June Johnson and Miss Taylor are cochairmen of plans for the association meeting. isely plained, and things were about as bad as they could be. The people grew tired of it, he said, and a new charter was proposed, as well as the city manager form of government. He explained somewhat fully the governmental setup that was adopted, and the manner of appointing the civil service board of the city. No Exceptions Asked In all the 15 years that he has Served on the board, he said, no one has asked the board to make en exception for the appointment of some individual to a city job. The board, he said, acts as an advisory body, an efficiency board, and a judicial body in the matter of disputes. Jt also protects the city employees in their jobs. A civil service commission, hf> said, to function properly must he composed of men who cannot he tied up. In illustrating how the hoard functioned in promotional matters, he cited as an example the choice of a man to replace a chief of police who was retiring after 23 years of service. He declared that to be the first time a chief of'p'o- lice had ever been chosen by civil service in the United States. The competitive examinations conducted, he said, resulted in the assistant chief of police being elevated to the post of chief. Prior to the address, Lester DeMund presented valentines to four members of the club — Bill Allison, George Todd, John D. Loper, and Dr. Victor Randolph, president. 67 Visitors Attend There were 67 visiting Rotarians In attendance.

Phoenix police learned yesterday. Charles H. Wright, chief of detectives, said a. bulletin issued Thursday by Chris P. Fox, El Paso sheriff, shows Punchard escaped from the county jail in Cameron, Tex., while awaiting transfer to the Huntsville, Tex., prison. It also shows he was sentenced under the habitual criminal act to 99 years in prison after receiving a two-year term for robbery by as- Jerome Frank Gets Federal Judgeship WASHINGTON, Feb. 14— (AP)— Jerome N. Frank, chairman the Securities and Exchange Commission was nominated to a federal judgeship today, and reports circulated that a staff official would be elevated to the commission. President Roosevelt nominated Frank to fill the seat on the second federal circuit court bench made vacant when Robert P. Patterson became undersecretary of war. Ganson Purcell, 35-year-old Californian who has headed the trading and exchange division for more than three years, was mentioned most frequently as the probable choice for the SEC vacancy.

Dr. Martin Hall, free-lance journalist exiled from Germany for his anti-Nazi policies, will address the morning meeting.

Both want production. Hillman wants to make sure that this production is achieved with the minimum sacrifice of labor's gains. He is too realistic to think that it can be accomplished without any sacrifice. And so today two 'immigrants, now both naturalized citizens, with widely different backgrounds, lives, and philosophies are working together for the same goal. "Bill" and "Sidney"—they're that to each other—are pulling together to make America impregnable. Britain's Near Fall Is Voiced HARTFORD, Conn., Feb. 14— (AP)—Gov. Robert A. Hurley said loday it was his "unconfirmed belief that Great Britain was about to capitulate to Germany two weeks ago, but that Harry Hopkins, acting as President Roosevelt's personal envoy, had per- maded the English government to "hold out" pending receipt of increased American aid. "I am firmly convinced," Gov- ernor Hurley told the state federation of women's clubs, "that England's situation was more critical than most people knew." Predicting the invasion of Canada and Mexico "within one month" in the event England capitulated, the governor said the danger of invasion of the United States had been "understressed" rather than "overstressed." "It seems to me that now is the time to confound the Germans and act,'" he said. j Hurley is a Democrat. B&G Market Phone 42731 244 E.
