Officer THE FASHION CENTER „ OF California Criticizers Of War Effort Face Accusations War Workers Who Normally Work On Sunday Asked To Continue Their Jobs On Easter Sunday Unless They Intend To Worship (By The United Press) WASHINGTON, April L—War workers who normally work on Sunday should continue at their jobs on Easter unless they intend to spend the day in religious observance, War Production Chairman Donald M. Nelson said today. He made public a letter to August H. Teuchler, president of the Cincinnati Bickford Tool Co., Cincinnati, who had asked whether the WPB is officially requesting men and factories to work April 5. Is Entirely Proper '.'Easter is a day of very great religious significance, and I realize of course that many workers and executives in our war factories will wish to spend a part of the day away from their jobs in order to observe the day with proper devotion," Nelson's letter said. "I think it is entirely proper that they should do so, and the War Produciion board is not asking any of them to forego their observance of Easter's rites and ceremonies. "The board does, however, in view of the urgency of the situation, ask that all war production workers who do not intend to spend Easter Sunday as a day o? religious observance, put in a full day's work at their regular jobs." will be named.

Presumably, they will not be subject to further penalty, the supervisor said. He has not been advised as to what disposition was made of the stamps the firms had on hand at the time of their suspensions, but usually in such cases, Anpuol Scottish Rite Event Slated Tonight At Hilton Hotel Approximately CO South Plains Scottish Rile Masons are expected in the-city today for the annual Maundy Thursday program at 7:30 o'clock tonight at a dinner in Hilton hotel. • Following opening ceremonies, dinner, addresses and a presentation, officers, including a president, vice president and secretary, the program include Chas A.
