ATLANTIC CITY, N. J.-The
American public was warned by
Federal Price Administrator Leon
Henderson to brace itself for to
morrow of industrial dislocation
and harsh sacrifice.
"U ia a Hark nicture I paint,
Henderson told 100 attending the
n York Housewares' Manufact
uring association convention as he
predicted an end shortly oi tne
recent boom in sales of automo
biles, refrigerators, vacuum clean
ers, radios, electric stoves, furni
ture and other hard goods.
"It becomes my disagreeable
duty," said Henderson, "to tell you
that the party is over. . . Before
long now there will be more pur
cVinninir nower running around-
kuntinir something to buy . than
tli wo are poods available. . . .
"I wish I could tell you that we
had an easv solution, that every
thing is going to be all right. I can't
nromiaa vou anv such hope. All I
can tell you is that only by sweat
ing blood and tears can the disio
cations be held to a minimum.
"No exactly similar paradox ever
confronted American business
Customers eager and able to buy
will he crowding the market places
and stores, but manufacurers will
be unable to get enough raw ma
terials to satisfy demands.
"Thus, it is a dark picture I paint
It is a picture of factories made
idle by lack of materials tp worK

blighted by spurious prosperity
based on production of goods which
we can't wear, or eat. or live in.

Better equipment and improved
methods of handling and prepar
ing produce will give more rapid
and efficient results this year.
The blackberries are now being
picked directly from the vines into
quart baskets instead of the old
method of dumping into gallon con
tainers, thereby being handled only
one time. Hence they remain firm
and unbruised for canning.
An improvement in the prepar
ation of beans will be noted in
a new machine that does expert

Wnakinvtnn An urgent re-
auest for the immediate -establish
mpnr of davliht saving time in
North Carolina was dispatched to
Governor J. Melville Brougnton
Tuesday by President Roosevelt.
Immediate action by North Car-
rlina and seven other Southern
states was urged by the chief exe
cutive as he sent a special enact
ment of legislation giving him au
thority to establish year-round and
nationwide daylight saving time.
Citing potential annual savings
of 104,500,000 kilowatt hours of
pleetric enere-v in these eight
southeastern states; the President
appealed to the governors of North
Carolina, South uaronna Vir
ginia. Alabama. Tennessee. Geor
gia, Mississippi and Florida to pro
claim daylight saving time scnea
ules if legally possible.
In his message to Congress,
President Roosevelt asserted that
electric power is "the prime energy
of our national defense effort"

and stressed that it is essential
that it. he conserved in all possible
Duvlinrht savine time, he
added, is a practical metnod lor
The letter to Governor Brough-
ton further stressed that "the coun
trv la faced with a serious power
shortage that is impending the
national defense program. This
in the southeastern portion of the
shortas-e now is particularly acute
country. Every effort is being
made to meet rapidly increasing
power requirements '. a
Although Governor Broughton
has opposed the exportation of
North Carolina's electric energy
to industrial enterprises in other
states, the President expressed the
hope that ' emergency transmis
sion connections shortly will make
it possible to deliver any excess
power from one region to another."
