PAGE 2t The News. Frederick, Md., Thursday, December «, 1951 Scrap Metal Shortage Is Held Serious The nation's critical shortage of scrap metal is a problem of industry which must supply essential jiujk to keep the steel mills in operation. Unlike World War II days when the "kitchen brigade's" contribution of po s and pans met vital.scrap shortages, the present emergency calls for "heavy metal junk." This appraisal of the nation's need for scrap metal was given ^otarians Wednesday at their luncheon meeting in the Francis Scott Key Hotel by Wilson M. Brady, of Baltimore, industrial analyst for the Department of Com. merce in the. Baltimore office of NPA. Mr. Brady substituted for the day's announced speaker. John Weber, district NPA manager, who was too sick to come to Frederick for the speech. From Cars To Furnaces Mr. Brady said many steel mills have had to siow down, others have closed for lack of scrap metal, an essential in the manufacture of the steel so vitally needed in the American defense effort. He described mills where for the first time in history scrap is being unloaded from freight trains direct to furnaces to keep up operation, and said "If you don't think steel's tight, just try to get a little." He urged people to "talk scrap" to publicize the drive and to "get together those pieces with weight, like old radiators" which arc needed. Mr. Brady predicted that Maryland will place near the nation's top in the current scrap drive as it did during World War II. , The speaker described the newly developed processing method for junked automobiles in which the dealer burns wood and rubber residue on the chassis, a three-ton weight is dropped on the metal frame, and the scrap, mashed to about 12-inch thickness, is loaded by crane on a tractor trailer and hurried to a steel mill Wrecked cars, he said, must provide a backlog of used parts to keep transportation rolling and the new scrapping technique is the most successful so far advanced for quick conversion to usable scrap. Fanners Asked To Help Good results were achieved in the October-November farm drive for junk, he said, and the Frederick Chamber of Commerce, in line with the U. S Chamber policy. is sending out 2,200 letters to farmers urging a continued hunt for scrap. Current steel shortages are attributable to the lack of scrap, Mr. Brady said; copper is in short quantity because of strikes and production troutfre*. and the bottle neck there i? so acute no real casing is anticipated even by mid- 1852; aluminum ma\ be expected to be more plentiful in another six months. The steel deficit as of December 1 is 1,240,641 tons, Mr. Brady declared, representing what should be stockpiled for winter use. The situation is so *cute that no stock' piling can be anticipated, he said and concentration is on keeping mills running. Many have bulll new open hearths which cannot be put into operation because of lack of scrap. Local Drives Help Local drives, sponsored by such groups as the American Legion and the Community Chest, with house-to-house canvass have unearthed astonishingly large quantities of metal. Mr. Brady said, and every possible device to "bring to life the dormant" supplies of junk are being urged. Rotary president Clyde M, Honey presided at the meeting.

Byrd, the Virginia Democrat, told the doctors: "The or.e overshadowing characteristic of the administration now in Washington is fiscal weakness and irresponsibility. From this springs the demand for confisca- tory taxes, stifling controls and centralization. "If America is destroyed it will be the result of fiscal irresponsibility of which the present administration is guilty, and which even now is being exploited by political camp followers who would centralize all power and purse control in Washington. - , "From these come a deadly assault on the free enterprise system, the creeping socialism and the scandals which Thomas Jefferson foresaw when he said: 'I do verily believe that a consolid- Jted government would become the most corrupt government on earth.'" j In Business For Itself Ohio Republican Taft said: 'The Federal Government has gone into many businesses for itself and threatens to go into more. .t has, undertaken to regulate all ndustry and commerce and agriculture with great Federal bureaus and huge subsidies. II has taken over functions which were almost exclusively local, and it threatens to take over si) welfare services xupport th« non-workers that It through,a scheme known as social Insurance, which I* not insurance but slrnpjy morp taxation to support free Federal welfare services. "The American Medical Association has taken the lead In opposing this trend,' and the. doctors are justified in this because the key move of the socialists today Is the effort t» set up « Federal system of socialized medicine. Would Tax Workmen "The Government proposes to collect six or seven pillion dollars, mostly in payroil taxes from workmen, and ,set up a vast Federal bureau to''employ nearly 'all the doctors in the country to furnish free medical service to all the j people, including the great major- j ity who are perfectly able to pay ] for it themselves." redum .their Incentive am* their standards * of living. WItn''"the tremendous military spending we now face, i doubt if we should undertake any additional program, no matter how meritorious." Opposition To 'Truman Mounting "Opposition ' to Mr. Truman is mounting in the South," Byrd said earlier today at a news conference. "I believe that more than four states will vote against him now or instruct their electoral col- lege delegates not to vote him, if he is a candidate" for i selection of th» President. Thl I could Jiave happened, he said, i Senator medicine Taft would said cost (socialized annually from six to 10 billions, minimum, 'and the way costs are going today it might even reach 18 or 20 billions." , "We cannot impose on the hardworking people of this country,", Taft said, "a burden so great to GIVE HER A NECCHI WORLD'S FINEST SEWING MACHINE- i Prices Start. $143.50 FREDERICK SEWING MACHINE SALES SERVICE 19 E.
