McNutt Order
Will Regulate
Nation's Labor

All Hiring Handled
By WMC; Essential
Jobs Get Preference
WASHINGTON, June 2.- ()-
Practically all the nation's male
workers were placed under strict new
job controls today as the War Man-
power Commission moved to channel
more labor into war industries.
Extending its "priority referral"
plan to blanket the country, WMC
ordered that beginning July 1 all
men except farm workers must clear
through the United States Employ-
ment Service in seeking jobs. Only
men referred by the employment ser-
vice may be hired, although busines-
ses with eight or less employes are
not affected.
Agencies approved by the users such
as colleges and unversities, will assist
inclearing and referring workers, Mc-
Nutt said.
Job applicants will be assigned to
top priority war jobs, wherever they
"The plan will make it possible for
a worker anywhere in the country to
take hs most useful place on the in-
dustrial firing line," Paul V. McNutt,j
War ManpowernChairman, said.
Already in effect in about a dozen
"critical labor shortage areas," the1
referral program was extended by
McNutt under President Roosevelt's
executive order establishing the War;
Manpower Commission. It authorizes
the recruitment of workers and re-
ferral to jobs in which they are most,
McNutt emphasized that while the
referral program is on a voluntary
basis, it will be difficult for workers
tp get jobs unless they clear through
the employment service.
The new program provides that job
seekers will be offered assignments
in'the order of importance of the job
to the war. Workers will be given the
widest choice "consistent with the
war effort" in the acceptance of jobs.
WMC also ordered the establish-
ment of employment ceiling pro-
grams and manpower priority com-
mittees in all the 184 group one and
two areas of serious labor shortage.
These are already set up in some of
the areas.

Ann Fagan, '45, from East Lansing,
received $100 for "Life, Liberty, and
." in the minor essay field while
Bernice Galansky, '44, from Clayton,
M., also won $100 for "Machiavelli
and More." "Three Essays" won Fay
Ajzenberg, '46E, from New York City
a prize of $75. Judges in the essay
field were Dumas Malone, Esther
Forbes and John Kieran.
In the minor poetry contest, Edith
Katz, '44, from Lakewood, N.J., re-
ceived $150 for her "Poems." Jean-
nette Michael Haien, '44, from Ann
Arbor won $100 for "Eidola" and
Doris Rosenshine, '45, from Detroit
received $75 for "Raw Somnolence."
Judges in this field were May Lam-
berton Becker, Mary Colum and
Frederick A. Pottle.
Miss Bogan, who spoke on "Popular
and Unpopular Poetry" stated that
"poetry is a talent that can't be
forced." She said that giving Hop-
wood awards is not pretentious and
brings those people connected with
professional literature together with
youthful writers. She stated that she
believed in "giving people money be-
cause it gives them freedom."
Following Miss Bogan's talk and
the announcement of winners, the
New Yorker critic was guest at a
private dinner given by the University
Hopwood Committee, and at a recep-
tion given in her honor at the League.


THE THUMB ROUTE TO WORK-Caught by a sudden street car and
bus strike, thousands of St. Louisans were forced to hitch-hike to
work. Virtually every driver filled his car to capacity. Here, two
obliging motorists load their autos with passengers at a bus and street
car stop at St. Louis, Mo.
