But, if facts were a 5 reported, we condemn with even greater vigor those who arranged the meeting-. Accounts agree that the meeting was announced as a "We Want Action" rally seeing to unite sentiment for speedin* O 'f war production. But labor spokesmen charged that attempt was made to exclude union labor from voice and representation m it.^ Trouble started when union men staged sucn a demonstration that their representatives were allowed to speak. The demonstration of mob spirit is not to _be condoned. But if facts were as claimed by labor spokesmen, they had a just complamt. If the sponsors sought to give it the appearance of a "unity" rallv while trying to exclude or discourage labor representation, it was a meeting to be condemned by thinking patriots. It is so apparent that full cooperation and participation of labor would be an absolute requisite to any real unity of expression or action that w e won't waste space discussing it. The evidence at Houston seems to support the claims of labor spokesmen The most conclusive evidence was the fact that printed copies of a resolution were distributed before being proposed for adoption fay the meeting. It was a resolution proposing to condemn the 40-hour week Obviously labor representation would not have endorsed it. Yet it. was the.apparent expectation of the meeting sponsors' that Jt. would be adopted. They are under the suspicion of having expected to forward it_to Washington as representing the voi VOlC 6 of unity in Houston. * It inViTes "the suspicion they did net expect labor to be represented at the rally. This, in turn, might be interpreted as evidence that they were less interested in speeding production than in profits that might result to them if the 40-hour week should be outlawed for the duration. _ It puts them under the suspicion of trying to capitalize on a somewhat widespread misunderstanding of what is meant by the 40-hour week controversy. Some people are under the impression that war industry labor now refuses to work longer .than 40 hours per week. This, of course, is a mistaken idea. Labor is willing to work longer than 40 hours—actually is doing it, but insists that overtime pay beyond 40 hours be. continued at time" and one-half or, in many cases, double-time. The other view is that labor should be paid no more for the 41sfc hour and beyond . than for the first hour. Labor argues that if existing overtime pay schedules are reduced, it merely will add to the profits of the contractors. * * *. .pEOPLE of this nation certainly would not 1 favor giving capital any money saved on labor. Their chystal-clear demand is for .savings to be applied on production costs so that the same money will produce more planes, more tanks, more guns, more of .everything essential to hope of victory. This must be done. The limit of money, of the capacity of the taxpayer to pay, is being reached with frightening speed. That's why The Morning Avalanche and Evening Journal favor doing away with the 40-hour week—to produce more war essentials at less cost to the taxpayer, not to give industrialists a wider margin of profit. While favoring doing away with the 40-hour week, -we also favor a 6 per cent, or even a 4 per cent, limit on corporate profits, salaries and bonuses so industry, and its executives, can't profiteer on the taxpayer any more than labor. Labor and capita] must produce more for less, and they can do it without suffering. If tabor works 40 hours ov mere per week at the highest wages in history, its pay envelope will be fat without overtime bonuses. And industry seems to be doing better than all right without "having profits swelled further by savings on labor. It is difficult to sec how mass meetings will help to clear this situation. If they are genuinelv representative, then such extremes of opinion will : ; participate that bitterness is more likely to be intensified than healed. If they aren't representative, then they will tend to set up rival and nr>!^rr^«: c i;^ ~*™~~ when complete unity is so antagonistic camps vitally needed.

Goodwin stopped, alert. For several moments they stood staring at each other, unseeing, waiting the- - repetition of .Sharon's imaginary sound. Then, mazingly. there was a sound. The growing putt-putt of the motor boat. ''Our strange visitor is coming back," Sharon said, so gratefui for the interruption she was hard put not to show it. Goodwin nodded, released her abruptly. "We must get back to the car." Sharon never obeyed a command with such alacrity. Leadin" the way, she fled up the trail, sure-footed in her desire to be out of th'at cove, cak into civilization. Not that she was exactly out of the woods yet, she thought as she climbed into the car. Still, Harvey Goodwin's mood had changed. He was no longer her rather unmanageable admirer, he was the busy executive, her employer. Looking at him now from the corner of her eye, her fears of a lew moments before seemed groundless. Nothing about his grave-eyed attention to the road ahead, the unfailing courtesy of. his occasional remark, his slightest .gesture seemed to bear out the evidence of her alarm. Strange that he could change so quickly. His mercurial disposition made him a sort of Dr. Jekyll-and-Mr. Hyde. She was, at least temporarily, no longer in danger of too much of Mr. Goodwin's attention. Sure of that nov\ she rested her head against the back of the seat, let the motion of the car cradle her, soothing her achingly tired body. Mr. Goodwin drove her directly to her apartment. "Don't come down to the office today," he said as he helped her out of the car. "But get the rest you must need bacUy." "Thank you. I am tired." "You must be," and his smile warmed her. "Thank you for all that you have done and next time—" he raised one eyebrow at her, "don't let your imagination play tricks." Too tired to defend herself any further, Sharon only smiled, said, "I'll try not to." "And don't take our young friend to Half Moon Bay again." There was no teasing' in that. Threat, rather. And a - definite warning. She had been right. There was a secret there and she had very nearly uncovered it! "I won't," she promised quietly. Later a:; she drew the blinds in her bedroom to shut cut the morning sunlight, undressed, and crawled wearily into bed, she wondered a little about Mr. Goodwin's trusting her with certain vital information anti (hen abruptly drawing a curtain over the rest. There had been a full shipment of the precious airplane valves in the cabin only hours before she hac! Sect him there. She was certain of it. What's more, she believed he knew it too. As on a treadmill, her mind circled back over the details of the last twenty-four hours again and again until finally her tired young body related and she fell in!o deep, dreamless sleep. She awakened about four, refreshed and ravenously hungry. In her bathrobe and slippers, "she raided the icebox, made herself tea and toast. She had just poured her second cup when the door- phone buzzed. Edda Dennis, p r o'b a b 1 y, Sharon thought as she released the door latch. Home early and he'd forgotten his key as usual. But it was. not Dennis who appeared in-the doorway a-few-moments later. It was — Countess Edda Cayetuna! Speechless with amazement, Sharon could only stare at her. The Countess—here! "How do you do." The Countess bowed slightly. "May I corne in?" "But of course. I'm so-^-so surprised—so happy to see you." Sharon stammered. "I hope I'm not disturbing you too much." Sharon flushed, aware of her own tousled head, her robe, her bare slippered feet. ''Not at all," and tried to tuck the little mules out of sight under the full skirt or her robe. "Won't you sit down?" "Thank you." The Countess sat on the edge of the little, straight- backed desk chair, her trimly gloved hands folded over her bag, her smile disarming—almost. "It's a—lovely afternoon, isn't it?" The Countess' smile turned a sharp edge. "Yes, your drive up from the country this morning must have been delightful." Sharon was on guard instantly. "A business trip can hardly be called delightful." "No? That's hardly understandable with so charming a companion as you had," she murmured evenly. "Still, I wouldn't be in a position to judge—not being a business woman as you are." Sharon, aware from the first that this was not to be a social call, waited now for the Countess to make the first move. "Since you are so clever a business woman, however," the Countess went on, "I am sure you will appreciate the proposition that I have to make to you." Sharon folded her hands tight in her lap. "Yes?" "It is really very simple." "The beautiful Edda smiled, a gesture intended evidently to dazzle Sharon into submission. "I feel that the responsibility of your position is much too great for a girl of your years. I know I am presumptuous in assuming any right even to be concerned about your welfare. But, knowing you for the sweet charming girl that you are, I could not help but offer my advice and, if you 'will accept it, r,iy help." "I am afraid I don't undar- stand," Sharon parriecl for time, trying desperately to see the real reason behind the Countess'visit. "I mean just^this, my dear. You are in a dangerous position. Very dangerous. Much more so than, I feci, Harvey has made you understand. More, perhaps, than Harvey himself realizes."' ' Sharon shook her head. "Still, I cannot see why you—" "Exactly," Shrugging, the Countess laughed softly. "But that is the way I am, always. Worrying about other people's dangers." Then, with sweet earnestness. "Believe me, my dear, I don't ofien bother to try to rescue people from themselves. But in your case—"' again that lovelv, appealing little shru?, "—I cannot help myself. You are so yot:ng, so in- t nocent, so very lovely." j Perfectly sure that in none ot this lay the Countt'ss' real motive.' Sharon led her on. "And—what did you want me to do?" "Resign your position. Leave this part of the country at least until this grave danger is passed." "But—what is th grave danger?" Sharon demanded. "That I am not at liberty to reveal. But believe me you are indeed, in very grave danger—mortal danger." "And where would you have me 'go?*'—still-fencing, < still completely in the dark as to real reasons. "I have influential friends—in New York, in Baltimore. I could find you many advantageous offers. Until you found a position, I would gladly . provide means for—" The haste with which Countess Edda drew a checkbook and pen. from her bag, betrayed her. Dismissed "Bribery!" Sharon spoke the word even as it lept in huge black letters ^against the silverscreen of her mind. And with the word, her quick Irish temper unfurled a proud banner. "And just how much is it worth to you to have me out of the picture so that Harvey Goodwin will be in no danger of forgetting your ladyship?" And her tongue curled contemptuously around the question. The Countess stiffened haughtily. "Hpw dare you'." Sharon laughed, a short, triumphant cascade of sound. At last she had the answer to at least one of the problems that had baffled her. Jealously—that age-old reason behind he machinations of a woman in love. "Keep your money, madam," she said, her head high. "Because I intend to keep my position." 'Slowly, the Countess dropped her checkbook, her pen into the smart capaciousness of Her black bag. Then, as she. rose, her dark eyes betrayed such passionate hatred that Sharon realized this woman would stop at nothing. No weapon would be too mean, no plan too involved to put Sharon out of her way. Sharon was not surprised then when the Countess, her voive no longer the dulcet tones of a gentlewoman, said coldly: "If I were to tell you that I have it within my power to force your registration — certain information that I can give or withhold in your name to the enemy—?" "Then I should call that blackmail." Sharon said with iciness to match the Countess'. "In this country, that is a federal offense." "Tourhe." The Countess shrugged eloquently. "You will not listen to me this time, but perhaps another day—" "Another day I will be just as determined Jo do my duty as I am this minute." "Perhaps. We shall see." Turning, the Countess moved to the door. Then once more the velvet glove slipped over her curving claw. "If you should change your mind. Miss Doyle, my offer still stands—until it is too late." She closed the door before Sharon had time to reply. Her anger now that the enemy hr.d retired* from the scene of battle, dissolved into apprehension. What could the Countess have meant? "Information I can give or withhold—in your name—to the enemy!" And how clumsily .she had handled thrs first open skirmish? Sharon s knees threatened mutiny and she sank down onto the same little desk chair the Countess had occupied only p moment before. If she had held her temper, played (Continued on Back Page?

WASHINGTON By Rs,y Tucker A SSISTANT Navy Secretary Ralph A- Bard in-"• advertently revealed the existence of a sharp disagreement within administration ranks over the labor problem in'his appearance before the House Naval Affairs committee. Some congressmen are not convinced th.-H the disclo.sure of the rift, was entirely accidental. When he was asked whether the United States could arm quickly and adequately on a 40-hcur week and overtime basis, he pulled a. typewritten paper from his pocket and prefaced its reading with an extremely soft suggestion that he be allowed to present his views "off the record " He entered no demurrer when Chairman Vinson insisted that he speak up in meeting. Then, with an admiral and a captain nociding assent, the secretary announced that he "personally" favored raising the minimum to 48 hours before bonuses, became effective. Subsequently it developed that he had brougnt along an extra copy, presumably for the press, which he passed out without objection In short the Navy wanted to tip off Congress and the public that it did riot endorse FDR's demand for war-time preservation of short hours and high pay. It's an old trick here. Other witnesses from the department exploded Nelson-Rayburn assertions that strikes have dwindled to the zero stage. A few days earlier in a statement excoriating critics, Speaker Rayburn had declared that only 100 men were out of work for this reason. Secretary Knox's boys testified that 4,000 were not on the job because of union trouble and these figures applied only to their own contracts. They did not include .disputes in plants handling.War department or Maritime commission business. * * « VICTORY: The Australian censor's liberal attitude toward newspaper despatches emanating from that continent has aroused some concern in Army and Navy circles at the capital Latest cause lor worry involves their passing stories which described the methods of Douglas A. MacArthur's' escape from Bataan. The general's flight by a fast motorboat on the first stage of his voyage was known here before ne reached his destination. But reporters were given strict warning not to tell the facts anywhere including their own offices. The reasons are understandable even to those who believe in the utmost freedom of the press. The day may come when other military men in the - Philippines- ma-" .hi» needed elsewhere and to reveal their prospective path to safety may close these avenues. The Japs are obviously chagrined that "Mac" got away under their nose and will be more watchful hereafter. Canberra also has permitted severe criticism of British operations in Malay and at Singapore to creep into newspaper and radio reports. Details on the Java sea battle likewise have been aired, although they tend to raise the question of whether the United Nations commanders displayed good strategy. Now with American forces reaching "down under" in quantity, our people . are disturbed lest too much talk handicap their future operations. Washington wants to fight the war in a democratic way, but not so democratically that it will injure chances of final victory. * * * SCRIMP: Householders who must scrape through for the duration with old or fixed-up furniture may derive some slight comfort from realization that the august Congress of the United States is in the same boat. The hardboiled housekeepers who dole out money for Capitol Hill's domestic economy have decreed that there shall be no trimmings. Instead of buying fresh rugs for members' offices, used ones will be taken to the repair department, cut up and woven into something "almost as good as new." Ancient roll-lop desks 33 years old have been sent to the carpenters "for renovation They are battered but still serviceable. The annual replenishmentror the typewriter stock will be omitted. Food and laundry costs have increased but no extra funds have been allowed for these items. "By careful management," the House mothers said, "we hope to get by on the 1941-1942 basis." The janitors pleaded for a nice, modern cinder eliminator, but smoke will get in their eyes for another few years. The contraption is too great a luxury for these dark days. The only additional expenditure will go for coal, only because the folks cannot do their best work when they are cold. Several important committees insisted that they needed more clerks (maid service to you), but they were told that they must scrimp along as best they can. "Make those you've got work harder," replied the unfeeling budgeteers. As a result of these economies the most important;House in the land will operate with seven per cent less funds than it spent last year. Referring to these'savings, one well-married man added: "Those babies talk just like my wife." « « * POOR: The party which introduced vast expenditures of money into American politics will plead poverty in next fall's congressional campaign National Chairman "Joe" Martin has told Republican associates here that hard times are coming and he will break the bad news to the clubhouse crowd at the spring conference of State leaders. The "fat boys," who once kicked through for the GOP, have quit the financial reservation this year. The Willkie element favored entrance into the war for several years, and will express their resentment at the minority's opposition stand by zippering their pocketbooks. Many others are rolling in federal contracts and will contribute to the Democrats if they give at all. High taxes will prevent some from coming across. One group is afraid to offend the administration and will look in the opposite direction with the collectors make their rounds. However everyone expects that the resourceful "Ed" Flynn will find means of gathering in the dough. He may sell books to war contractors! .„-.,,..•.*,• NEW YORK By Albert N.

Department of Agriculture and the war are helping cotton by putting it to new commercial uses is explained and analyzed in relation to the Texas cotton farmer and Texas economic in Mr. Curry's accompanying article. By BRACK CURRY Associated Press Staff Writer PHE cotton farmer in Texas will *- pull out of the economic drouth before the end of the war. With the war program fostering increased needs for the fiber and for ~ cottonseed " oil, research for new commercial uses, •producing definite results, and a promotional program to stimulate use of cotton fabrics swinging into stride, -Texas' staple agricultural commodity looks to its brightest future since 1929. The plight of the Texas cotton farmer is nearing its end. King Cotton—Texas' deposed agrarian monarch—may . regain his throne in Texas and the South during the war. * * : * Idea Explained In Houston Delos L. James, manager of the Agricultural department of thp United States Chamber of Commerce, in an appraisal of agriculture in the nation's war effort, described for Texans how a new and stable reign for the cotton • monarch looms out of the world conflict. Speaking before the agricultural committee of the Houston Chamber of Commerce, James said supplies and output of all farm com. modities were sufficient with the exception of vegetable oils and fats. Expansion of acreage devoted to peanuts, soy beans, and caster beans already is being encouraged to meet the need for more vegetable oilr, he said, and this' very probably will be extended to cottonseed and cottonseed oil. ,ln such an expansion, he pointed out, the lint would become merely a by-prodwct . and might never be processed for use. * * » JN a concurrent statement, Sec- A retary of Agriculture .Winkard accorded the role of cotton in the war effort official credence when he asked farmers to plant their ™, u Cotton allotment this year The allotment is for 27.400000 acres, and last year the farmers were about 4,000,000 acres below the permitted amount This year, says Secretary Wickard it will be necessary for the full acreage to be planted to fill an - expanding demand resulting from the war. - For Texas this is good news, as cotton is', the largest contributor to • Texans' livelihood. One- fifth of .the nation's cotton is grown in Texas, and 90 per"• cent of the Texas-grown cotton waj exported before the war. .' . • * * * By.Products Valuable Faced with the problem of finding new uses for cotton or abandoning it as a , crop, Texans look to mushrooming, domestic needs to absorb their huge annual production and eliminate price-depressing surpluses. Since curtailment: of shipping from the Pacific area has' created a ..shortage . of vegetable-- oils, Texas in . future months must supply huge quantities of cottonseed oil to makers of rubber substitutes, naint," lacquer, varnish, linoleum, soaps, cooking compounds and numerous other materials. As the nation's primary source of food oils, cottonseed now is a $1.'50,000,000 a . . year product in the South— • the seed in a bale of cotton j today being worth more than the lint was worth eight years ago. Two or three acres of col- ton produce 15(1 to 160 pounds of oil in. addition.to lint and 1 inters. An averase acre of Texas cotton produces three . tyoes nf essential war materials—170 pounds of lint, whioh the Army and Navy need in increasing Quantities: 50 to 60 pound* of oil. and 25 •pounds of. linter=. * -•> • * CALLING for increased cotton ^ acreage in Texas this year, Commissioner of Agriculture .T. E. McDonald said "an increase in surplus lint would more than be compensated for by the produc-. tion of cottonseed oil to meet" the demands of the nation at war." Spurred by shortages of many critical" war materials, research has transformed lint and seed'into new products galore, opening new almost untouched markets for cotton. Use of cotton for insulation is past the . .experimental stage, greating the possibility of a new market that will use around 750,000 bales a year if.only 10 per cent of the potential market is captured. .Manufacturers are turning to cotton insulation in refrigerator, cars and trucks and in household refrigerators, says H. H. Williamson, director of the Texas A. & M. College Extension service. The product is now being tested for use in marine and airplane construction. At New Orleans, the governments research laboratory has developed a new material from cotton lint for utilization in the manufacture of smokeless powders. Funny Business •'•' ~ - • ii i .H.
