WP) —Brig. Gen. Lewis B. Hershey indicated today that it would not be the dependents that a man has, but the importance of his job in war production, that would be the determining factor in his deferment from military service. As Hershey, selective service director, was addressing a Conference on War Demands for Trained Personnel, President Roosevelt suggested to his press conference that there would be labor shortages for war work by fall. The president also said plans were not yet ready for a systematic allocation of labor to war industry under -a manpower mobilization program, but another high ranking Army officer told the personnel conference it is hoped to make the U. S. employment services the single hiring agency. In elaboration, Brig. Gen. Frank J. McSherry, deputy director for labor supply and training in the War Production board, said that private employers with established gate-hiring and labor unions with established hiring halls would be allowed to continue if they refrained from labor piracy that is now developing. Both Hershey and McSherry addressed representatives from 104 colleges and universities and personnel directors of numerous large industries assembled at the call of the Institute of Women's Professional Relations. "We must go back to the civil war to find a comparable situation," Hershey said, "in which man-power—and I mean man and woman power—will be strained as it will be within the next 12 months." He said it is necessary now to decide which are absolutely essential industries, retain these and eliminate the others or "we'll waste valuable man-power." Many of the industries supporting the military forces are as important as the firing of the guns or dropping the bombs. He expressed belief that the need for deferment from military service would shift "from the question of how many depedents you have to what job are you doing?"
