compared with the B-li's low wing and the high or shoulder wing of the B-24 Liberator The power previously an nounced comprises four Wright Cyclone engines of 2200 horsepower each these being the same as the engines which pulled the Lockheed Constellation across the country in record transport plane time The B-29 has a tricycle landing gear with double wheels The Super Fortress wing is an entirely new one described by Boeing engineers as the "most efficient wing ever devised” It carries the greatest load per square foot of any airfoil The flaps — controllable extensions of the wings to provide extra lift for landings and takeoffs — are the largest ever put on a production airplane They equal one-fifth of the wing area The four-bladed propellers spanning 16i feet are the largest in use Through gear connections to the engines they turn only one-third as fast as the engines revolving slower than the propellers of any other plane 150 Electric Motors With the exception of hydraulic boosters on the brakes the plane is entirely electric using 150 motors of 49 types Auxiliary engines supply the electric power Despite its size and speed the plane’s rudder and ailerons are operated without the benefit of boosters Boeing engineers say this was accomplished by a delicate balance and serves not only to simplify construction bnd maintenance but also gives the pilot the "feel” of direct control Armament comprises 50 caliber machine guns in multiple turrets and a 20 nun cannon — the first American heavy bomber for which a cannon has been announced The B-29 is the most

Columbia Job Benefit Claims Show Sharp Decline WASHINGTON LTV— The number of new claims for unemployment insurance benefits for the first quarter of 1944 dropped 32T per cent below the figure for a similar period of last year the Federal Security Agency reported yesterday A gross total of $18777510 was expended in benefits or 444 per cent less than during the first three months of 1943 Rail Loadings Increase WASHINGTON (A3— The Association of American Railroads reported yesterday that 874193 cars of revenue freight were loaded during the week ending last Saturday This was an increase of 63421 cars or 78 per cent compared with the preceding week tests have gone into the B-29 and thousands of engineers were employed Its preflight tests so impressed War Department officials that a billion-dollar production program was launched before the plane flew The testing program was the most extensive ever carried out for an aircraft In anticipation of its combat use the air forces and the Boeing Company arranged an inspection and flight in the B-29 for a group of aviation writers at Wichita Kans last month Immediately apparent were the "clean” design of the big bomber the comfort of crew members the smooth handling and its remarkable landing and takeoff characteristics Although the Super Fortress is half again as large as the B-17 its takeoff and landing speeds are about th same Crew comfort has been given special attention in an effort to have the men at peak efficiency in combat operations by avoiding much of the strain and discomfort resulting from long flights in older model bombers The Boeing plant at Wichita was chosen as the center of the early production program Now however the B-29 is being turned out at Boeing’s plants at Seattle and Renton Wash (production of B-17's has been left to the Douglas and Lockheed companies) at huge new plant built for the purpose at Marietta Ga and operated bv the Bell Aircraft Company and in the Glenn L Martin Compaift plant at Omaha Neb w’hich previously had been building B-26 Marauders The largest subassembly operation is in a plant at Cleveland Ohio operated by the Fisher Body Company This company ranks as a prime contractor Subassemblies are being carried out at numerous other factories The largest integrated factory unit in the country was built near Chicago to build the Wright-designed Cyclone engines This plant is being operated by the Dodge division of Chrysler Corporation Curtiss-Wright plants are building the engine at Paterson N J and elsewhere Co-ordination of the production job is carried out by a committee of representatives from Boeing Bell Martin and Fisher War News Spurs Buying On Big Board NEW YORK (A3— Good war news acted as a buying stimulus in yesterday’s stock market

States Labor Conciliation Service and the War Production Board's Division of Labor Relations said that an agreement had been reached between the company and local No 37 International Association of Machinists (AFL) and that the workers had agreed to resume their jobs yesterday No details of the settlement were announced The walkout involved a protest against the resignation of William Flaherty superintendent of machinists at the yard and brought orders from Rear-Admiral Harold L Vickery Maritime Commission construction chief to New Orleans representatives of the commission to survey Southern shipyards to determine where Delta contracts might be transferred if the machinists continued idle Green Urges Ceilings On Leaf Be Dropped WASHINGTON (A3 — A proposal that price ceilings be eliminated this year on flue-cured tobacco was presented to Price Administrator Chester Bowies yesterday Representative Green (D-Fla) said he made the suggestion contending that increased labor costs and bad weather had cut production so ceilings "would deny the growers a profit" He also argued that tobacco "is a luxury item and not a food crop so should not be subject to price regulation” Senate Names Conferees On OPA BBl WASHINGTON (A— The Senate yesterday t-amed its conferees to seek agreement on the controversial price cc-ntrol extension bill after hearing a new plea for "the poor devils who have seen their living wages and living standard go down down down” Senator Wi'ey (R-Wis) asked the chamber to insist on retention of his amendment to permit salary increases without War Libor Board approval if the hikes dr not send weekly wages beyond $3750 He said the House which approved the extension measure Wednesday knocked out his oro-posal because "bureaucrats dwelling in foxholes on the home front" put on the pressure His plea came after Senator Murdock (D-Uah) had expressed belief the legislation still faces the threat of a veto because of a House-inserted amendment that would open Oifice of Price Administration regulations to legal tests in Federal district courts Conferees Listed Named in tte Senate to try to compose differences between Senate and House versions of the bills were Senators Wagner (D-N Y) Barkley (D-Ky) Bank-head (D-Ala) Maloney (D-Conn) Tobev (R-N H) Dana-her (R-Conn) and Taft (R-Ohio) House conferees named Wednesday night are Representatives Spence (D-Ky) Brown (D-Ga) Barry (D-N Y) Mn-roney (D-Okla) Wolcott (R-Mich) Crawford (R-Mich) and Gamble (R-N Y) First conference session is set for today Wiley said he was espousing the cause of the white collar workers because Congress hasn’t recognized their plight and because they have no organization or spokesman "They are the clerks the school teachers and the municipal employees” he said “They do the work but they are not getting the gravy” Asserting his amendment might put $2500000000 into their pockets he contended that amount in the hands of this class of people wou'd not be inflationary Tico Nominated For Presidency Of 4-H Course BLACKSBURG (A3— Vernon Grizzard of Greensville County and James Tyler of Loudon County were nominated yesterday for the presidency of

wear of tire treads by weighing the tire and wheel at intervals and noting the loss in weight has been found feasible for passenger car tires Meek Urges Early Marketing Of Cattle for Slaughtering J H Meek director Virginia Division of Markets asked yesterday that producers w-ho have cattle suitable for slaughter "to market them early in order to avoid glutted market conditions which may force even lower prices" The reason for this Mr Meek explained is the great number of cattle which w-iu he available for slaughter during the Summer and Fall months But Mr Meek added that "unfortunately ceiling prices do not justify normal expenses of producing high quality beef” "Ceiling prices on beef have to produce it except at a loss therefore the usual percentage of beef produced that is high quality ha been reduced materialy and to producers that support prices will be still further reduced underw-hich will mean something should present policies Mr Meek said I be placed on rattle now” Insurance

Warrenton and Ernest H Dickey Bristol Tax Problems Discussed Loring'A Schuler of Chicago general manager of the National Tax Equality Association was the featured speaker of the day’s sessions telling the delegates that private enterprise which has al ways been the foundation of the American system of business faces eventual extermination unless existing tax inequalities are remedied to give everyone a fair chance Speaking in a similar vein Sydney F Small of Roanoke vice-president and assistant to the president of the Norfolk and Western Railroad warned the insurance men that "it is at least possible that some of the Washington star-gazers who have created more than 100 Federal alphabetical agencies since 1932 have a plan to ‘protect’ every American with blanket insurance from the cradle to the grave "I hope there is no such plan' Mr Small said "but in view of the record to date insurance men should at least be constantly on the alert for possible developments” Co-operative Cited Emphasizing that he was not attacking co-operative organizations or mutual insurance companies Mr Schuler said such groups have a perfect right to do business "However” he added “stock insurance companies are burdened with unfair competition from mutual companies which as a rule pay much lower taxes than their competitions and businessmen large and small are up against an increasingly tough proposition from government-en-couarged co-operatives which are exempt from paying taxes at aiL” Quoting Chief Justice John Marshall as saying “the power to tax is the power to destroy” Mr Schuler whose theme was "Lost — a Billion in Taxes” gave many examples and quoted statistics compiled by the organization which he heads to illustrate his point that private business is treated unfairly "Because of tax exemptions granted to the co-operatives the government Is probably losing billions of dollars in taxes a year” Schuler said "Nobody” he added “knows just what the loss is but some idea may be available after August 15 which is the deadline under a recent act of Congress for the co-operatives to file financial statements for the first time with the Bureau of Internal Revenue WFA May

(A3 — Charles F J Cinia since June 1 Harrington president of the Na-j tional Association of Insurance US Is Denied Commissioners suggested yesterday the drafting of new legislation covering insurance because of last week’s Supreme Court decision classifying insurance as commerce subject to interstate commerce and kindred regulations Legislation recommended prior to the Supreme Court decision he told the association at its opening convention session is no longer sufficiently comprehensive “Those of us who have read and studied the decision should be here authorized to offer to cooperate with congressional leaders” he said "Consideration should be given to the effect of the decision in fire life casualty and all branches of the insurance business “Our association Is best qualified to impartially co-operate in the drafting of such legislation” Discussing possible extension of governmental social security benefits Harrington said returning veterans should have an opportunity "to join with us in expressing to our representatives in Congress our ideas on a program the cost of which we all must necessarily share” He added: “The opportunities afforded in the field of private insurance through life insurance companies fraternal benefit socicites accident and health insurance companies and nonprofit medical and hospital plans afford unlimited facilities to enable the individual to provide for himself and his family on the basis of his own individual ideas and consistent with the demands of his social status “No government program of social security however well conceived can be flexible enough to offer such benefits1" Harrington urged authorization of the drafting of State legislation W'hich would enable all accredited insurance companies to write insurance in all States and throughout the world providing "multiple line” coverage G G Fraizer Nebraska Insurance director told the meeting that the goal of proponents of "multiple line” coverage was to have the State law's permit an insurer to preside in one policy all the Insurance purchaser needed Sugar Stocks Down 420000 Short Tons WASHINGTON (A3— Stocks of sugar in this country on June 1 were about
