THE WAYNESVILLE MOUNiaINEER
Roosevelt Warns That
America Is Not Doing
Enough In This War
"We are not doing enugh," said
the President, and he added, "in
this war it is kill or be killed." In
this "toughest war of all time"
we are going to have to get down
to brass tacks and turn the brass
tacks into bombs and bullets. "
To an extent we have been doing
this, but now the need is terribly
urgent and materials scarce. Now
we must have war goods in greater
volume than ever and in a shorter
time. Our enemies don't wait.
Steel mills, eating up almost five
million tons of scrap metal a month,
are running on almost a day-today
basis. We are dangerously
short of copper, tin, and other non
That's why our school children
30 million of them are being
enlisted to comb our homes, back
yards, and farmyards for scrap to
food the steel giants. That's why
our kitchens must shower down old
tin cans by the million so that we
can reach our goal of 3,000 tons
of household tin a year recovered
in 17 new "detinning" plants. That's
why we must save waste fats and
greases, turn in the half billion
pounds we have been asked to sal
vage. These fats would help make
enough bombs to crippleAhe Ger-

We shall not be making wire
hangers this year.
Labor Problem Still Paramount
To do all that we must do to
stop the Axis hordes, merely to
get enough skilled workers and
fighting men for this gigantic job,
is going to be a tough business for
all of us. In 116 of 1G0 critical
war production areas there are ser
ious labor shortages, and in all
these areas there are shortages of
some kinds of skilled workers.
Employment in the automotive in
dustry, now making weapons, has
passed the 800,000 mark but not
until it absorbs another 600,000
workers will the industry have
reached peak production.
Farmers Riding High
Farmers, on the whole, haven't
found the going tough so far
except for the shortage of labor.
They're buying more goods and
making more property improve
ments than at any time since the
unlucky boom d(jys of the last war.
Yet that very fact should give them
pause. Inflated war prices not only
handicap the whole war program,
but endanger post-war security.
With tobacco, wool, and all meats
bringing prices far above parity,
producers might well recall the
tragic slump which followed the
last war-created "prosperity."
Government Cracks Down On
Sabotage Of Price Control
In its unending battle against
the Fifth 'Column threat of infla
tion, of high living costs, the Gov
ernment is cracking down on sabo
tage of price control, illegal trad
ing (the "black markets"), rent
gougers in war-boom towns, dis
honest grading of meats, other war
Mor Products Taken Out Of
As we cut deeper into the war
economy, unexpected values are
attached to the commonest pro
ducts and by-products corn cobs
and oat hulls, (sources of solvent
known as fiirfurol), plastics, drugs,
and dyes. Some of these must be
reserved strictly for war uses,
others have been brought into bal-

A New Policy
The state director of ths selec
tive service has notified the local
Jraft board of a new policy under
which the selective service system
will cooperate with the U. S. em
ployment service in the location
of men with special qualifications
which lit them for essential activi
ties which contribute to the war
Under this policy, whenever lo
cal boards ascertain from infor
mation provided by the registrant,
his employer, or his occupational
questionnaire, that a particular
registrant possesses the qualifica
tions to engage in an essential
activity and at the time is not
so employed, the name of such a
registrant will be referred to the
local office of the U. S. employ-,
If a man is so qualified and in
active work he will receive special
consideration from the draft board
in his classification, and if he is
not located in such activity, the
board will proceed to classify him
on the basis of his being engaged
in a non-essential work.
The primary purpose of this
policy is the location of men with
special training, skills or qualifi
cations which fit them for em
ployment in war production work
or in an essential activity contri
buting to the war effort, so that
such men may be used to replace
men without similar qualifications
who are now engaged in said acti
vities and to move men with special
skills from non-essential activities
to essential work.
Employers who interfere with
or advise against placement in war
p roduction or essential activities
contributing to the war effort will
be reported, as will also the men
who have special skills and refuse
to accept employment in war pro
