Chief Blasts
Demands Will Be Met
Despite Army's Heavy
Drain on Fuel Industry
By The Associatef Press
WASHINGTON, April 28.--(A)_
Army demands for 100-octane avia-
tion gasoline are going to be met,
Petroleum Administrator Harold L.
Ickes said today, despite 'continuous
and discouraging obstacles" and "a
really baffling lack of understanding,
by many persons in high authority,
of the vital essentiality of 100-oc-
Red Tape Hinders Action
The job of assuring that goals will
be achieved was accomplished, Ickes
told the Senate Truman committee,
"despite a frightening drain by the
armed forces upon the techlical tal-
ent of the industry. It was done in
spite of the fact that the. program
had to be cleared through many gov-
ernment agencies, and the further
fact that we were in competition
with other pressing programs for es-
sential materials."
Chairman Truman (Dem-Mo.)
asked the identities of the persons
who couldn't understand the import-
ance of the high-octane program.
New Material Needed
"It would take a cataloge of
Washington to list them," Ikes.re-
plied. "Some of theiw! ere military,
some of them naal, but in the final
analysis we couldn't go ahead with-
out new materials, and there is 1ily
one source of 'new iilateriaW in
Washington "
The committee .niemb rs readily
understood his reference to l4e War
Production Board. WPB Chief Doz-
aid M. Nelson hagI told tni yester-
day about ordering conpletio. of 55
per cent of the planned Bunas rk-
Ver production, over Ibke$' objection.
Nelson said he did so only to pevent

agency Mr. Roosevelt established as
a court of final resort for all war-
time labor disputes.
(In a letter to Secretary of Labor
Perkins, the UMW Tuesday dmand-
ed withdrawal of the case from, the
WLB saying members of the govern-
ment agency had a "malignant prej-
udice" against the UMW.)
2. The UMW's deniands for wage
increases without regard for the
"Little Steel" formula which has be-
come basic government policy by in-.
corporation in the President's hold-
the-line order against inflation.
Overshadowing these issues, how-
ever, was the immediate question of
whether Mr. Roosevelt could avert a
trirtlirig 'halt in the production of
fuel necessary to keep the wheels of
war production turning.
Scarcely veiling the threat of a
general work stoppage by 600,000
miners, Lewis has declared that in
the absence of a new agreement by
Friday midnight-when a temporary
understanding with the operators ex-
pires-the miners "will not tres-
pass" on company property.

Trnan Committee Hears Priorities Dispute

Members of the Truman Senatorial Committee listen to testimony in which Donald M. Nelson, War
Production Board Chief, deplored "fighting among government officials." Nelson was referring in par-
ticular to the current dispute of Rubber Director Jeff ers, Undersecretary of War Patterson and Petroleum
Administrator Ickes over synthetic rubber and high octane gas priorities. Committee members (left to

$1,000 Local Goal To
Aid War-Stricken Jews
Campus representatives of the
United Jewish Appeal Drive are this
week visiting fraternities, sororities,
league houses and dormitories in
order to point out to the students the
aims and purposes of the UJA.
The local drive is a part of the
national campaign to raise a total
of 25 ~million dollars. The local goal
is $1,000. The money is used to aid
Jews in occupied countries, to assist
thosr w o have escaped to one of
the U ted Nations by providing
theta with financial 'aid until they
area wellv established, and to aid in
thy rehabilitation of Palestine.
since it is impossible to send mon-
ey directly to occupied lands, the
PjJA depends upon citizens in those
countries, to provide the Jewish peo-
ple with food and sets aside money
in American banks to reimburse
these people after the war.
Contributions may be made to the

ternity, sorority, dormitory, and
