Page Eight STERLING DAILY GAZETTE, STERLING. ILLINOIS Lag in Purchasing Of Defense Bonds Produces Concern Public More Apathetic Than in Liberty Loan Period of World War Bv Frank I. We!>r WASHINGTON—'Spenal i—Some eonirrwsmen believe th» treasury mu*t do something to increase the sale of defense bonds. They suggest two possibilities. Making the bonds more attractive by Increasing the Interest rate; putting on a high pressure sales campaign, possibly along the lines of the Liberty bond drive of World war days. Five month." ago national defend expenditures ran about J500.000.000 a month and Secretary Morgenthau Mid he would be satislied If defense bonds brought in $300.000.000 a month. The bonds have been doing that, almost to the penny. But defense costs have risen to an average of about $1.250.000,000 a month, and the need for selling defense bonds has Increased proportionately, the congressmen argue. To meet treasury needs meanwhile. Secretary Morgenthau had to aell $1.200,000.000 of regular treasury bonds on October 9. It was the largest single issue since World war days when each new deficit In work- Ing capital was covered, almost entirely, by the sal* of Liberty loan bonds. War Threat and Inflation Cited These Cohgressmen argue that the march of war abroad and inflation at home makes almost imperative a vigorous treasury crusade to sell defense bonds. They think the progress Of the war is bringing armed conflict and greater national expense dwer to America, and they are sure there'* shortly going to be a private •pending spree unless the average eitiien sticks his apare dough in Uncto Sam's «ock. • • They have Morgenthau'* word for it that "we are in the early of a serious price inflation Tuesday. October 28, 3941 Mining Group Strikes Reluctantly, Citing Bible and' we must deal with the danger •t once." The books show that national de- wlth war still on the other of the world, has become the chief item of federal expense. The treasury *!*"* $5,838.000,000 from July 1 through October 11, of which 14,990,000.000 went to arm the country- During that time, however, the treasury collected just 1975,917,000 on defense bonds. It is true that, unlike. World war days, the government now haa vast aources of income other than swapping it* securities for the people's money. Taxes, higher now than then, bring in about 911300.000.000 a year, and usable social security {rust payments about But government spending approaches •34,000,000,000—and, as some aee It, tha best remedy i* to pep up defense bond borrowing. Higher Interest Mate Saggeatei Some suggest increasing the In- ;t rat* from the current 1.9 per it to, say, 1.5 per cent on the Ser- _lM J5 or so-called people's bond, The higher interest idea comes chiefly from Republicans who feel that present terms are not sufficient to encourage popular investment. Defense bonds purposely .were made non-transferrable and nonnegotiable, except to the government at then prevailing values, to •void a wave of speculative buying and celling like the one which involved World war bonds. Democrats insist the government nn borrow plenty of- money without paying more Interest, citing the fact that most banks offer only 1.5 per cent interest on ,time deposits. One suggested an act of congress —similar to the British law under which employers hold back for future delivery a designated part of wartime wage*—directing employer* to buy defense bonds for the worker* with funds checked off to their •avings accounts. • Such a method already 1* being uaed voluntarily through labor un- PITTSBURGH — 'AP' — h?r* of the Oskmonf ^po^-'^Hr Faith church arr arnone /'n^nrly 7*5.000 rufftfrrt Pennsylvania captive ronl m!n*r« on strike, hut th^v joined the walkout reluctantly, explaining "th* Bib!* snv.s nor to srrlkr."

Performs Miracle Fifty-Acre Plant Buiit And Running in Year NEW YORK — tSpeclall — You have to travel around, talking wtlh executives and workers and fleeing for yourself the scores of rising new factories and workers' trim, white homes to grasp the resiliency of American industry -under the $77,000.000.000 defense program. Just a year ago this week, on pasture land near Cincinnati. Ohio, a group of Wright aeronautical executives shooed the cows away and with a big steam shovel broke ground for a new airplane engine plant. Today this plant, sprawling over 50 acres, is turning out complete aircraft engines, using 7,000 workers, and more machines are being Installed. By May of next year workers at the plant will number 12.000 and production will be well over 1,000 engines a month, a figure matching present output at the Wright home plant at Pater*on, New Jersey. Production at the Cincinnati plant began last April 14. less than four months after the contract for the main factory building, was let. But today. Just one year after Wright President Ouy W. Vaughan signalized start of the plant, production from the standpoint of man-hours worked each week is well over halfway up the ladder to total production. Out-turn of cylinder heads In the Cincinnati unit Is so fast. In fact, that completed heads are being shipped to Paterson for Installation in motors assembled there. The thing that appears to be a industrial miracle to the lay ob server, however, is the fact tha Vaughn waved his wand and gaih ered in a first-rate working force o 7.000 employes from Cincinnati an little towns within driving distance of the big aircraft plant.
