For American Industry, now pitched to optr- ate in high fear, Is finding fewer military orders' than exptcted, and we*k spots in the- economy hav« begun to crop out. Already the aluminum nherlage has- turntd to an aluminum surplus, whll» Belgium and Luxembourg steel, Imported at high prices, Is on the docks ruitinf for lack of buyer*. . - ' ' Charles E. Wilson, the man In charge of mo- bllliatlon, Is a pitrlotlc, sometimes 'irritable,' Irishman who worked his way up from the bot- .toiri to be head of General Electric, got to know Truman Curing the days of the old Truman commlttt*, and came to Washington at consider- abl« sacrlflc* to help his country. * * * However, thercfhave been three big reasons for the mobilization failure: · , It»ason No. '! is primarily Wilson's own. He has permitted the\ military to h a n d l e procurement Instead "of running things himself, No. 2 -- Stems from the firsl: Consistently inefficient military Brocurenjenl. When 'military -officers, trained chiefly 16 fight, arc placed in charge of civilian production, they nearly always bungle. ' Reason No. 3 -- Gross underestimation of the nutlon's productive capacity. Wilson and -his acl- i visers just did not have f a i t h in what the nation could produce under pressure. Hesult of all Ibis is that whereas, during the war, In* United States was producing 04,0of air.- nlan«s a year, today it's doubtful. that we can reach » goal of 18,000 planes a year by three yean after Korea. Another resulUs that we are woefully behind Russia in. airplane production, bolh in types of plalies and quantities. If it were not for the · courage tn4 training of American pilots, we woulij he out of Itick In the air war over Korea Further result, is that we have fallen far below our promises to Europe for war mat'cricl. Orlglnajly we proposed supplying the materiel, Europe the manpower. But when we fall down on materiel, n a t u r a l l y Europe holds back on manpower. "What is the use;" 1'ie.v argue, "of putting men in uniform when they 'lack modern weapons with which .to flghl?" * * * Just a little over a year ago, Janusry, ID5I military, fii| civilian chiefs bpth agreed to shoot for a goal of .1,950 planes per month and t h a i tills goal was to be stta|ned by September. 1053. This wi| not an unreasonable goel. A c t u a l l y it represented, in weight, lets than the nation's rate of production at the time of Pearl Harbor But one year later. January, 1052, both Wilson and Sectftary pf. Defense Lovett agreed t h a t eve.n this modest goal was unattainable. To produce 1,050 planes a month-- 2»2no a. year-- they admitted was' goln? tn be d i f f i c u l t . So they con- ylhced,Pr.esldent Truman tint the airplane goal an of September 1953, should' b* reduced to 1 250 per month. .Today we're producing planes at Hit rate of B75 per month, which compares, in welsht, to about half of what we produced at the time of Pearl Harbor. . Blame for these delays Is not rlue cllher to . the drslre of the Joint Chiefs of R l a f f or lack of '.*,' Wl,! 5 '?' Am « rlca " Industry. The job of Ihe i J c i l h t ehlefa Is to advise -the president what strength Is needed lo de/end.thc nation, and they have consistently set their sights hlfih. ntil be- tw«n the Joint Chiefs, who do the planning and th* American factories, which do the manufacturing, there is a IIIBZC of offices generally lumped under the heading of "procurement" * * * . These offices Include Army Ordnance, Quar- Wrmister Corps, Engineers, Transportation Navy Bureau of Aeronautics, Nnvnl Materiel N«vy Guided Missiles, Air Force Materiel A i r Force Production Engineering, clc. Most of these are under military-officers, ami here is 'where the production program has largely bogged down. It has bocgerl down partly because of poor · P'tnning, partly because of the demand for per- fec Ion. partly because of constantly changing df signs. * + * For Instance, the Army redesigned a new 4nk featuring » body made. of a .sinnlc casting us ead of .being riveted together. This made a b e t e r tank, and the thousands of man hours that went Into it were justified. However, when the huge tank was all set. It was discovered that no one had remembered to order the proper en- So months of production lime were lost! Again. Army Transportation has insisted on trucks w i l h hydromatlc gear shifts and power stecrinE. This is not only expensive, but 'harder to repair in battle. Many trucks will he used for ordinary jobs around Army camps such as hauling garbuce; but the Army, nonetheless, insist* on nerfectlon. Constantly changing dcSiqn probably has been the biggest reason for delay. Some of this Is necessary, since Hit armed forces naturally want lo lake advantage of new inventions. But Get Ready, Folks, the Big Parade Is About to Start By WALTER in producing a new light 'tank, the Army changed the design a total of 1,400 time's! Yet there" were only 1,300 parts in the entire tank! Naturally all these delays. cost money as well as time. And this is one of the biggest reasons for armed services waste. . · * Thirty Yeara Ato Today ' (Fayellevlllt Daily Democrat,. March 17, 1952) Fayeiteville has been chosen as the site of the Methodist Southwestern General Assembly. This decision of the commissioners, ' representing Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana and Missouri, re(ched at Fort Smith last evening between 11:30 and midnig fit. was telephoned here immediately and by midnight the whole town had been made aware s of it by the ringing of bells, which rivalled the Armistice signing celebration. A jubilee celebration will be held tonight on the Square at 7 o'clock. The radio (wireless) .telephone set recently Installed by station 501 is being put through final tests at the shops of the owners at the cor- nrr of West Street and Lafayette Avenue: At present the phone set' is radiating about six tenths of an ampere in the aerial but it is- hoped that with slightly more tuning two' amperes may be obtained." Twenty Years Ago Today (FayeHevllle Daily Democrat, March 17, J932) The Senate today passed 31 t6 0 the amended Whaley bill to authorize the city of Fayeiteville to extend water mains to the U. S. Veterans' Hospital to be built here. The measure yesterday was amended to apply only to cities now designated as sites for government hospitals. General offices of the American Liberty Insurance company will be moved from Mupkogce to Fayctlcville and will open in the Democrat building. The offices to b« occupied by the company are being rearranged an'd redecorated. / ·-' · ' .Ten Years AID Today (Northwest Arkansas Times, March 17, 1942) An organization keyed to meet war problems and help build for the nation's offense w,as outlined at the ninth annual business meeting of the Arkansas Democratic.Women's club Jor the third congressional district at Huntsviile Saturday, when representatives from several counties met for luncheon and a business cession.

A--Darius carved a record of his early achievements in cuneiform writing 300 feet above the ground on the steep side of Behistun Rock, in western Persia. Written in three languages, this record proved to be a key to cuneiform writing in other languages. Q--In what way is Siam different from all other cfilmtries of southeastern Asia? A--Siam is the only country in southeastern Asia which has never been ruled by a European power. Q--What tree holds its leaves straight upward as a protection against the sun? A--The eucalyptus tree. Q--Was Bach recognized as a great composer during his lifetime? A--While he lived, Bach was farnous,as a great organist rather than as a composer. His music was little known u n t i l 1829, when" Felix Mendelssohn conducted a performance In Berlin of Bach's "St. Matthew Passion."

It is now ss much the president's uty to relieve General Eiscn- ower as it is the general's duty o ask for relief.

Drccvcs,' a tall straight man with grizzled black hair nnd dark serious eyes, waited with Dumont ; In the hallway above. Cravath greeted him, Introduced me, and led the way to the den off ! my room. We sat down. 1 "'Mrs, Dumom," he said then, "will rye perfectly ·«!! right, if «M · k«Pt (inlet. She' is suderlng from shock »nd a slight concui- slen.

Mr. Du- niont will have told you that none of us, actually know what happened to his wife. I mean by that the--er--circumstances of the thing." Dreevcs nodded. "So I, understand. And the circumstances seem a little--well, peculiar. For one thing, in my opinion, the blow Tould not have been self-inflicted," "But why should she want to knock herself out?" Dumont asked. "I couldn't a n s w e r that." Jrceves shrugged. "Except to say hat I don't believe she wanted to. 3r did. But for another thing, sne was. . . ." Again his eyes sought Dumont's. [she could have slipped,, hit the | back of her head, got up, w»n- · dered around the grounds and finally barged Into those chains?" "Something like that. I'd bet against it, mind you. But I've been a physician for a long time, Mr. Dumont. Long enough to avoid making a positive statement that such-and-such a thing absolutely could not have happened. Queer things, very outlandish things, do happen to people. Especially, if you'll forgive me, when they're-ah, when they've taken too much." ' N u r s e Burroughs was'a small iark female who moved efficiently in a swish of starch and wore a no-nonsense expression. Williamson arrived with her while we were talking. Dreeves left us to give her instructions, then took his departure. As if by tacjt' consent, everybody went to bid early. Personally, I thought it a good idea. I'd ieen afraid that we'd sit far into he night, hashing and re-hashing i matter for which no person had ven the foggiest explanation. What then? Suppose that the relief is arranged in the course of the next few weeks? Does that mean that Eisenhower can then come home, buy a 10-gallon hat, and go to roaring around the country attacking Taft, denouncing this, promising that? Not in the least. He will still be bound by the spirit of the code in which he has been disciplined and bj which he has lived. He cannot do anything which is meant to divide his party or the nation. His mission in American poli tics is to re-unite the American people, to heal their divisions, to assuage the bitterness of regions, of interests,. of classes and of sects. That is the only kind of mission which can justify the elevation of a professional soldier to the presidency. A general. who, entering politics, incites the passions of the people, embitters them against one another, is an adven- turer, anJ--at .history shows--a military adventurer is a mortal* peril to free institutions. * · · The popular strength 'of Eisenhower grows from the conviction that the disunion and .distrust in American politics- are becoming" insufferable, and that the very life of the ! Republican is in jeopardy because of them. It is impossible--and evenui are show-' ing It to be impossible--for this country to defend its vital interests and to meet its huge responsibilities in the'face of the mounting partisan and factional war-" fare." That warfare stops at nothing-, at no principle of .Justice, at no measure of'the public^need, at nothing in its ruthless, -blatant,' cruel, dishonest and' destructive fury. We cannof carry the burden of protecting and .leading the free nations'of the world if every policy and every measure we have to take must be dragged through the * stinking mess of shyster politics. : Our people are better than the shysters who humiliate us and dishonor us, and our people are entitled to something, a lot better' than what they, are getting. After New Hampshire it begins ; to look as if they were determined to get something better. That is what, the Eisenhower movement is about. It is not about, whether the general, having sat up late 10 nights in a row to study t, agrees with section 132 of the T a f t - H a r t l e y act,- particularly, vith the second semicolon'in 'the* bird sentence. Nor is it, as Senator Taft tried to persuade the ·oters in New Hampshire, about what General Eisenhower thinks h 1052--now that Senator Talf and everyone else has had the Dcnefit of hindsight--it would ave been wiser to have done at 'eheran nine years ago and at" Yalta and Potsdam seven years O. Nor is it about whether Eisen- ower stands at this moment, hav- ng had no time to consult those who are best informed about it, on the Taft side or on the Truman side of all the many issues that Truman and Taft combined have' managed to snarl up so that they are insoluble and irreconcilable. Rather it is about rising t h e ' standard of public life to a level* where these conflicts will cease to be "irreconcilable, Where genuine problems are not manhandled and blown up into false issues by politicians picking quarrels with one another--picking quarrels be-, ing the easiest and cheapest way to play the political game. [JUMONT said resignedly: "Oh, tell them, Doctor. Might as well call the spades. Everybody round, here knows about it, anyhow." "Vary well." The doctor spoke ulckly, as one trying to get an npleasant chore behind him. "To mak«.«-bnld statement, Mrs. Du- -lont had been drinking heavily." Which put it, perhaps, as charl- ably as possible. "When do you think she'll be blc to tell us what happened, If le can?" asked Cravalh, The doctor pursed thin lips. "Not onlght, certainly. We'll see about In tho morning" He hesitated. There was some- hlng delicate, -subtle about the CSltotion. "Go on, Dreevcs," Cruvoth In- led. "We might better hear Dear Miss Dix: ShoulJ a man _. ve up old friends he has known n high-school days--if they - are girl friends? My husband, Peter, and I met after graduation from ligh school, married a fe-.v years ater and moved several hundred miles away from home. \Ve only ;o back about twice a year.
