PAGE EIGHTEEN--THE MORNING AVALANCHE March 20, Many DolIar-A-Year MeiTAr^Charged With Trying^To Allegation Mader ~ ~ " ~ ~— in Hearings Pia! 4343 For The Avalanche-Journal Office» <E-/ The Dr.ited Prusl "WASHINGTON, March 19. — A House military affairs subcom- . mittee today heard the charge that - many dollar-a-year men, trying "to serve two masters," often permitted their business connections to prevail over their obligations to the government. , v Robert R, Guthrie resigned ,Vhief of the War Production Board and leather section, made 'the allegation at hearings to in- ;Ves*.igate charges that alJ-out con- iversion of industry to war production was being impeded with;in the WPB. •? Trying To Bring Order "" He said that "at heart" he and 3VPB Chief Donald M. Nelson saw • "eye to eye on the issue of all- jout war effort versus compro- 'jnise." ••" "I have tried to follow and support him," Guthrie said, "Because ,1 am convinced that working un•der great difficulties and with an Organization that has grown like .-jTopsy, he is trying to bring or-der out of chaos. ^ "That cannot be accomplished *pver night. I sm confident that if "he understood the degree to which .his insistence on an all-out effort ;is impede in his own organization, •he would stand his ground against ^hese forces exactly the way that ,J have done." ^ Cites Various Industries ,., Asked by Chairman Andrew J. -May, D., Ky., of the full military committee to state the ex- reason for his resignation, vGuthrie said it was because he *could not make his own appoint- ;ments and conduct his part of ,AVPB as he believed it should be -conducted. «,; Guthrie cited the radio, refrig- *erator, wool, cottonduck, Nylon "industries as what he said were ^specific examples of the reluctance of WPB officials to order ^conversion. £ Hefers To Dispute ,^; In the radio industry, he refer-red to a dispute between himself ;"and Phillip Reed, chairman of Jthe board of the General Electric ,Co., and chief of the WPB bu- Jreau of industry branches.

'.-. "I was shocked to discover that "aluminum was being used for this purpose," he said. "It is well itknown that many airplane manufacturing plants are operating at |fless than capacity simply because -_ihey cannot obtain enough alumi- .>uum." *M His Order Overruled ^ Guthrie said that his disagreement in the refrigerator industry -came when he and Thomas Evans, ^bead of a Philadelphia company, -tP-ttempted to reach an agreement •fhalting the output of refrigerators. ^Guthrie said he had ordered pro- ^duction to cease as of March 31, *but that subsequently he was -overruled and~ ; ~told ' production ^'jwould be halted as of April 30. ^i "This was done although Mr. sEvans was not a sworn govern- nnent employe and had no offic- Jal standing," Guthrie said.

She does the grind and the bumps and has no inhibitions whatsoever. Just downright naughty, is Cleo. But she's seen in the best places, always in the company of two personable young men. Walton & O'Rourke, they're billed. And Cleo, the moppet, is their puppet. Whenever Cleo does her act, a lulu of a hula, other puppet performers in the Walton &. O'Rourke stable hang their heads—on hooks back of the tiny portable stage. Even though her undulations are motivated by strings, and she hasn't an ounce of brains in.h^r plastic head, Cleo has her own personality. She got it from Paul Walton and Michael O'Rourke, and it's hard to say from which. One of the partners starts a sentence and the other finishes it. It takes 20 to 30 silk fishlines to make Cleo and her fellow troupers cut capers. An ingenious fastening of the strings to a pair of "handles" permits countless movements. _ Walton, who adopted Texas as his home state after first samplin" the air of St. John, Kansas, and O'Rourke, who early was of Pocatello, Idaho, 10 years ago began the puppet partnership which led to double billing on Broadway— in Olsen and Johnson's "Sons o 1 Fun" and at the Rainbow Room. Cleo may be their most spectac ular performer, but Lazybones and a hi-de-ho team. Dianne anc Dennis, get steady booking too Lazybones polishes Walton's shoes plays hotfoot, and exits hurriedlj after sampling a cigaret.

Bryan, county tax assessor-collector: ''Lubbock county has from 18000 to 20,000 automotive vehicle's and trailers that, if operated -after April 1, must be licensed. "Two thousand of them have been registered. "There will be 11 more business days in which to complete registration. "Find the answer." Requires 1,000 a Day Bryan said more than 1,000 persons a day would have to "line up" to get the task completed in time Fewer than that would mean i: nos- sibly as high as 3.000 a day in the waning days of the registration which would tax energies of his office personnel to the limit — since the personnel has to remain into the night to check work done by day, as it is.
