KA.\SANS AT WAR Newspaper men who attended the Kansas Press As.socia,tion meeting in Wichita last week were taken on a tour of the Boeing B-29 aircraft factory where some 50 lola people ii/c employed—not to mention some 25.060 or 30,000 others, the exact • figures; being a military secret. It is too bad every citizen of Kansasi can't take a tour of this plan;.. If they could, it would be ten ".oars before editors would have to write another editorial in an effort to boost Kansas state pride in Kansas acliievements. Here is an example of Industrial Ainu, iua < ha;, tvh-;. .•iiuiiicu? '.eiy top best. It VivM - people think ; ;;it> taJk absui the me- i wiaieii makei | 'U l ' gieatest producing j luUoii on earth. It has size, speed, ;.iL;i;n :zation, efficiency, assembly Hr.e tecimique, machine tools for u.conceivable operation—even noise. • • • Above all its has a spirit of industry and devotion among its workers which the best run private plant in peace time would be proud to exhibit. It was this which impressed me most of all. I havB; seen several war plants in operation, and I am obliged-to confess thiit until now I had been ciiiefly impressed by the I j ACK of efficiency and industry which seemed be in evidence. Nobody seemed to be in a hurry; everyone liad plenty of time to gawk arouiid at the visitors; those who were ac•\ii-My working gave the impression i puttering around to kill time rather than laboring to finish a job. Not so at Wichita! In the two hours I spent walking through the Boeing plant I must have seen 10,0.00 workers, and so help me, I didn't see a one that looked as if he were loafing on the job or just trying to "put in his time." There was no confusion, no delay, no appearance of working at cross purposes an>TFhere. Everyone had his particular Job laid out in front of , him. Everyone was plugging steadily ahead at it. • * « This was in particular contrast to the lackadazlcal atmosphere I found in the Bell Aircraft plant which I visited in Buffalo, N. Y., last summer. I asked George Ti-ombold, who is the personnel director at Boeing, how he accounted for this difference. He didn't pretend to know, of course, but gave it as his guess that it was chiefly due to the differoice Ijetween the workers, themselves; the : difference between Latin-extraction Eastern labor with its long background of union "don't-work- yourself-out-of-a-job" Influence, and Anglo Saxon Midwestern labor which has always expected to work for a llvingl Whatever the reason, no taxpayer can,complain at not getting value received for the money being spent at Boeing in Wichita.

OLD-TIME PRICE CEILING It was rather surprising and most encouraging to learn that in a recent poll of automobile owners, 16 per cent of those questioned said they would not buy a new car if postwar prices were 25 or 30 per cent above the peacetime level. . After repeated predictions by economists and. others, a lot of us had taken it for granted that the release of wartime savings would start a buying spree that would exceed healthy bounds and make price control necessary for a long time after the fighting had stoppM. Maybe those controls will still be necessary. In the automobile field, for example, the controls should exceed the supply for some time to come. And yet, if this poll is CAN BE MADE TH80U6H ' NEXT; tooffir the weasels. ^ (Octavtd Stewart) Friends of S/Sgt. Ava (lUe) Baker wU be interested in the news that he has arrived In England.

LAWRENCE came from one of the original Dutch families that had settled New York. Her maiden name Ayas Greetje Van dier Lyn. She possessed the innate Dutch qualities ot: order and obedience. In her management of the household she retained some of the customs of h^ upbringing. The sitting room of; the Lawrence house was, in no sepse, s lounging place. It "was n^er opened except on momen- tohsl occasions, and these were mbnths apart. On all ordinary oebaSions the dining room was used as the living room. •'Charles and. Nellie Mason," said the Major, nodding toward his Virginia friends, "are here pn what may be called a leisdrely tour, just to see the place. They've been to Philadelphia lor a week, arid after they leave our town, they're going to Boston, and from thiere back to Virginia by sea. Am I tight, Charles?" "You're quite right, sir," Charles Mason replied. He was a tall, leta, handsome man lof 30-odd. Miss Fiaser soon learned that he wJjs inclined to be talkative. Nel- 11^ his wife, had that fond, inno- cept look in her eyes that one sometimes sees in the eyes of pet animals. . "We saw some very, very interesting ciu-iosities today,'' said Mr. Mason. "One was a porcupine, his back full of darts, which the man said he shoots at you if he: doesn't like you—" "They look like writing pens," Mrs. Masoft remarked. '^Did he shoot any at you?" the Major inquired. ')Not a - dart," Charles Mason replied. "He liked us, I suppose. W^ paid sixpence to see the porcupine, and another sixpence to look at what they call a Japanese. But I don't beUeve it's a Japanese." • -*SOh, the showman took his sd- enm oath that it was." This came fttnn Bfe. Ma»)n. ^^Ba! 'ha! ha!" guffawed the Major. "Of course, it's not a Japanese; it's a monkey." "This is the advertisement in the Gazette that we read, and it caused us to -go,^' Mrs. Mason asserted. She^producid a newspaper clipphig, and read in her soft Southern voice that Mr. Edward Willetteshowtog— A creature called a Japanese, about two feet high, bla body re- sembllna a human body In alt parts cept th« feet and tall. He. walks uprlgHt and performs various'., actions to admiration, such as -walking upon a line, hanging and swinging under It, dances, to any tune, etc. • • WVOU must not believe what 7" you Vead to the gazettes," said Mrs. Lawrence. •:*WeIl, what difference does it make?" Charles Mason argued, •Td never seen'a monkey, hbr had Nellie, 80 cJUr sixpences are well spent after all.** "Have you be«i to the theater yet?"* Miss SVaser asked.' "No, VTC haven't; we got here only two days jago—on Thursday," Mr. Mason replied. "Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence haiye asked us to go one evening rieJrt week. I un» derstand that this company of ac­ tors—^Mxirray and Kean, aren't they?—^is the first set of players you've ever had in New York. That's right?" "^o, not quite correct," said the Major. "WeVe had plays here before occasionally, but nothing regular. This company loolts like it will be-permanent. They have a lot of plays and are going to give them all." "I've never imderstood," the Major continued, "why the theater and its players have been so cruelly treated in thie colonies." Miss Fraser remariced that there was more than one reason. First, the character of the players —thqr are roving folk, with no fixed hdme.' The second reason is, she said, thr.t noany people believe the theater attracts the Idle and the dissolute. *We'don't treat 'em badly in Virginia. We've had actors and theaters and plays ever since I can remember," Charles Ma.^on said. ""They are welcomed in South Carolina, too. There's the Dock Street Theater in Charleston." « « » 4fyES, three colonies—Virginia, South Carolina, and now New York," the Major said. "Everywhere else they're conderaiiLvl at sight. Why, my dear .sir, du you know what would happen to you if you gave a phiy in Boston? The pilloi-y and the jail, or perhaps 40 stripes on your bai'o biu-lc, followed by expultinn." ''The Murray and Kean company—here now—gave some performances in Philadelphia," Mr. Mason remarked. "Yes, they did, but the authorities ordered tliem out ol Pennsylvania, so they came liere." ''New York has many interesting things," Miss Fraser remarked, "besides waxwork.s and monkeys and stage plays. Go to Ranelagh Gardens and Vau.vliall and take a look at them. Tliey'n: beautiful, even in winter—" "We're going to see them nil," said Mrs. Mason, "before wo leave. I want to go down to the tip end of the island, where the fort is, and look across the bay." "That's called the Battery now,"' Major Lawrence told her. "In summer it is a beautiful place, with all the trees in loaf." Ho paused a moment, as if in reflection; then he turned to Mr. Mason. "Charles, if you will come with me in the morning, I'll show you a piece of New York tiv.U ;i traveler seldom sees." Looldin-: at Mrs. Mason, he said, "No, Nellie, this excursion is not for you. Charles will tell you all about it when he retiu-ns." "It soimds like'something devilish," Charles Mason said. "I'm all for it."
