March 14 — Your correspondent has come, away irom a highly interesting but IbEqrmal conversation with General Mark Clark, American, commander in chief in Austria, with the distinct inipres- K' 1 Sion that he would like io see all Jj the Allied forces of occupation' — :,Russian, British.

Certainly there will be no withdrawal uhless all four participate. I found General Clark viewing the Austrian position from a horse- sense standpoint based on a wide knowledge of the whole European problem. We covered a lot of territory in our conversation — and his vision reaches far beyond the borders .of his personal command. It's •my guess', too, that more than a bit of the humanitarian is involved in his calculations. had our chat in his private Hope Star Star of Hope 1899; Presi 1927, Consolidated January IS, 1929 Cotton Order May Seal OPA'sDoom Washington, March 14 —(.«P)— An ~ 1 • Published every weekday afternoon by Star Publishing Co., Inc.

Before the strike which began on January 21 in ten of our plants nnd which has choked off nearly ail farm machinery production, earnings of employes of those plants averaged $U5.^ an hour, not including any overtime. The Union demanded n 34 cents per hour increase nnd a Government board has now recommended n general increase of 18 cents an hour, which would mnke nvcrngc earnings $l.3ii y± an hour. Weekly average would bo $53.40. What about materials? No one seems to know how high materials costs will go. Tho Government has increased steul prices ns much us $12»00 a ton, with un average increase for all grades of 8.2%. Steel is the most important material we buy, hut prices on other materials arc also increasing. What about prices? There has been no general increase in our prices since they were frnzcn by the (government in early 10-12. Since then n few small increases have been allowed where particular machines wero subslqulially changed in design. What about profits? Risk is part of the American profit and loss system, so we do not, of course, nsk either our customers or tho Government to guarantee that we can be curtain of profits each year. The chart tells the story of our profits during tho war. Although Harvester produced more goods than ever before, it had no desire to get rich out of war, so our rate of profit lias steadily goneldown. What our 1940 profit will be is extremely uncertain. What is the next step? As you can see, our present situation is that with frozen prices and declining profits, we are asked to pay higher materials costs and to make the biggest wage increase in the history of the Company. Can we do this? Wages and materials consume all bul a few cents of every dollar we take in. If our prices continue frozen, and cost of wages and Profit por dollar of solo has det-tined unlil in 1945 it was slightly loss than four cunts, as against 8.4 =unls in 1941, materials continues to rise, obviously our Company will begin to oporati! at a loss nt some point.

Continuation of our service to millions of customers, the j future jobs of thousands of em- ployes, and the safety of tlioiin- !** vestments of 39,000 stockholders depend on our making as correct a decision as is humanly possible. What about future prices on farm machinery? The judgmentof Harvester's man- agementnow is thatwpcannotsijfe- ly make the huge wage increase recommended by tho Government until the Government authorizes adequate increases in the prices • of farm machinery to cover the ' resulting increased costs. That is not a judgment that makes us happy. The Company •iocs not want to raise prices. We prefer to lower prices, when possible, and we know our customers prefer to have us do that. We have produced at 1912 prices, and hoped we could continue to do no. We have delayed seeking general price relief in the hope that it could be avoided. Now we are convinced that it^cannot be avoided qhy fi" longer. Tho price question must be settled. Until it is settled .we do not see how we can settle the wage question. Until the wage question is settled we do not see how we can resume production and begin turning out the farm machines which we know our farmer customers need. Because of the important stake which both farmers and city dwellers have in this controversy, we are bringing these matters to your attention.

They must lag each olher wherever they go. Mothers must never leave their children even for a day. Children must never go anywhere without Mother holding them by the, hand.

He lit one for her, then dropped his hand to her shoulder. "Happy, Ann?" he asked. She put her hand over his. "Perfectly", she murmured. There was a little silence and then Colin asked, "Have you seen Jock?" Ann sliffened, and sal up straight, away from him. "No," she said coldly. "Don'l you Ihink you should? 1 mean—well, it's silly of me, 1 suppose, but don'l you Ihink you owe yourself lhat?" Ann got lo her feel, in one little movement. She walked over to the fireplace, and leaned ugainsl the mantel. "Colin, aren't you being unnecessarily chivalrous?" He seemed a litlle pale, but his voice was steady as he answered, "I don't quite know what you mean, Ann." "Oh, Connie's been after me to know that he exists.
