Congressional Group Begins
Drive for Mobilization Office

~fl RE


By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Nov. 14.- Con-
gressional proponents of a single civil-
ian command over all war production,
with its manpower problems, an-
nounced today a drive to set up a
central office of war mobilization by
Dec. 7. They declared that the war
could be won in eight months by "a
resolute overhauling of the war pro-
duction machine."
Senators Kilgore (Dem.-W.Va.) and
Pepper (Dem.-Fla.) and Rep. Tola
(Dem.-Calif.) said executives and
production, engineers of twenty cor-
porations with half the war orders
had been invited to testify at hearings
opening Monday before a Senate la-

bor sub-committee under Pepper's
"We want to get from them the
complete story of the operations of
the present production procedures,"
they said in a joint statement. Chair-
man Truman (Dem.-Mo.) of the Sen-
ate defense investigation committee
and Chairman Murray (Dem.-Mont.)
of the small business committee in-
dorsed the program.
The sponsors told reporters they
intended to press it through Congress
as a directive to President Roosevelt.
The President has the power now to
set up such an office, Tolan observed,
"but it hasn't been done yet."
