THE GAY THIRTIES STAMD [MOBILIZATION PLANSMAPPED Industrial Blueprint Simplified And Brought Up To Date. Washington, "Oct. 2.—The ' industrial mobilization plan — the nation's blueprint for war — has been simplified and brought up to date. A copy of the 1.939 edition, which is under scrutiny of the newly- created War Resources. Board, showed here that it differed from recent previous plans in these respects: It is briefer, more direct and less detailed in charting methods of putting the country's resources behind the army and navy in the event of war. It stresses general procedure and principles, rather than detailed plan of action. It places increased emphasis upon using existing peacetime governmental agencies for war work. However, the- object of the plan remains the same, namely, to provide the armed forces with an adequate and constant supply of munitions and to supply civilians with ample subsistence, without unduly dislocating the social and economic system. In the event of war. the President would summon the recently created War Resources Administration to serve as a "super-agency" in converting industry to a war-time basis. This board, which was set up less than two months ago is headed by Edward R.

President Roosevelt stressed last week that creation of the board was not a step toward war and added that the- board would be disbanded this month after completing a study. One man—the resources administration chairman—would be an industrial czar under the mobilization plan, with possibly greater powers than those exercised by B-ernard M. Baruch when he headed the World War Industries Board. He would be advised by a council composed of heads of divisions of the resources administration, heads of other emergency agencies and representatives of the War, State and Navy Departments.

Destination of the five warships was not announced, but reliable informants believed they would be taken to Britain's Far Eastern "Gibraltar" at Singapore, co be used as patrol boat.? and mine-sweepers. Well-informed foreigners said the move would strengthen Singapore and indicated British preoccupation with a possible Japanese naval drive southward against the Dutch East Indies and British possessions in that section of the Far East.

Within the administration would be created divisions to provide the war industrial machine with sufficient plant facilities, raw materials, power, fuel ami transportation. Other emergency administrations, whose functions would be performed initially by the war resources agency, would be: public relations, selective service (draft), finance, trade, labor and price control. Control of prices would be at;empted by voluntary co-operation and public opinion. War service committees of industrial representatives would provide contact between govern- ~at and business.
