WATER HEATERS -- REPAIRS By ANTHONY G. DELORENZO United Press Staff Correspondent DETROIT, Mar. 31—A champion of labor and a general of industry—Director Walter P. Reuther of the United Automobile Workers (CIO) and President C. E. Wilson of General Motors corporation—today submitted the issue of a!l-out war production to a full dress debate ''unique in' the annals ot American industrial relations." In an unprecedented joint press conference between representatives of labor and management, they debated before an audience of newspaper men, Army and Navy representatives and groups of their own partisans the merits of the so-called Reuter plan for the automobile industry to produce 500 airplanes a day. Tco Many Types Oi Planes Wilson said it was impractical because of the diverse types of planes needed—bombers, fighters, interceptors and troop-carriers. He said such mass production would call for the utmost in standardization. Reuther countered: "Before this war is over there is going to have ;o be much more standardization of airplane design than we have today. Only by reducing the types of planes can we produce them in the quantities we need. That's the way Germany did it." The debate opened with George V. Denny; jr... moderator of the radio program "Town Meeting of the Air," as impartial referee. He ruled out discussion of such issues as the 40-hour week, double pay for Sundays and holidays, strikes, profits, salaries, wages, proposed joint labor-management committees for war production and others now pending before GM- UAW -contract negotiators. Next came a reading of the so- called Reuther plan which the UAW-CIO submitted to President Roosevelt in December, 1940, with a claim that it would enable the automobile industry to build 500 airplanes a day while still producing 4,000,000 automobiles a year. Wilson, was the first speaker. He challenged the program as "E guns and butter plan to produce something our military authorities did not require and still do not require even in this war emergency." He said the Reuther plan called -for a number of planes of a single type that surpasses the quota set by President Roosevelt for between 35 and-40 types of planes. "As I understand it," Wilson said, "the President's quota for total airplane production of 120,000 planes in 1943 includes all these types of planes—a grand total that is less than the Keuther plan proposed to manufacture of just one type-". = The GM president said the Reuther program "over-stated" the ef- Civil Appeals Proceedings ..

PROCLAMATION ISSUED AUSTIN, March 31. (^/—Reverent observance by prayei's and other fitting ceremonials was urged for Good Friday in a proclamation issued by Governor Coke R. Stever.son today. fective surplus capacity of the automotive industry. He ssserted that suggestions as to how this capacity could be used for war production was "so cumbersome and impractical they showed obvious lack of appreciation or knowledge of what the real job was." Wilson called the Ruther program a "publicity and political plan," because it was offered to the government instead of industry. Reuther Counters Reuther countered that Wilson "failed completely to understand the plan." He said it contemplated not only production of 500 planes a day but also was designed = 'to obtain maximum utilization of the automobile industry's machine and man power. 11 "We put forth the plan because President Roosevelt said we needed 50,000 planes," he said. "We knew that the automobile industry was the only hope for such a program. I can't understand Mr. Wilson's statement that there was no need for that many planes." Reuther said the plan was offered to the government rather than industry because "only the government had the authority to move in and set up machinery to get this thing done on an industry-wide basis." The union boss accused, ihe automobile industry leaders of tardiness in joining the all-out war production program. He said that when th UAW-CIO proposed postponing 1942 automobile models for six months, to free tool and die facilities for the war effort, GM board Chairman Alfred P. Sloan, jr., countered with a suggestion to eliminate 1943 models. Reuther called the 19-12 automobiles the "Christmas tree model" lor their use of strategic metals in bright trim, and asserted: "It was the most criminal thing that ever \vas done against our program. It was the-gieatest waste of skilled manpower in, America. They didn't realize that we had to lay aside our normal way of doing business." Record Losses In. Texas Seen (By The United Frew) AUSTIN, March 31—Fire losses; this year in Texas are going to be the. greatest in history unless the trend is reversed, Marvin Hal!, state fire insurance commissioner, said tonight in a radio broadcast. . "Based on'what has been happening all over Texas during the first three months of this year'' Halt .said ''we are headed for a new record in fire losses." Losses Said "Serious" Losses from fires in some areas has become '''serious," he said. The commissioner advocated "simple observation anrt prompt action to remo\ r e hazards before fire breaks out." i "Prevention of destruction by fire is worthwhile in peacetime," Hall commented. "In time of war, it is even more urgent because many things such as refrigerators and automobiies cannot be replaced. When we consider the difficulty of replacing our very homes, it becomes tremendously important." Preventable fire losses, cost Texans $7,000,000 in 1941, Hail said. He computed tnat an equal amoum of money spent on military equipment would buy 20 fiy- ing fortress bombers, 107,350 semiautomatic rifles, 46,000 sub-machine gyns, or 175 anti-aircraft guns.
