Workers, Employers

Denounced by


Rumor of Huge'
Cutback in War
Industry Denied
Manpower Chairman
Condemns Slackers in
Vital Production Lines
By The Associated Press
DETROIT, Jan. 21.- Manpower
Chairman Paul V. McNutt de-
nounced tonight as allies of the
enemy the worker who wants to
leave the war production line in
order to "land feet first" in peace,
and the "hard-boiled" employer
"who wants to beat his competitor to
the post-war market."
He denied "rumors of tremendous
cutbacks" in war production and
asked Detroit and the nation to "re-
ject the peace scare that would col-
lapse the manpower front."
Cutback Termed Rumor
In a speech for the Detroit Victory
Council, McNutt said the term "cut-
back" is "a rumor word-a propa-
ganda word."
He said it may be "very danger-
ous" in this era "when the peace
scare is a major instrument in the
war of nerves."
The worker who wants to "land
feet first" in peace spreads the peace
rumors, McNutt said, because they
are a "sop to his conscience" and
give him an alibi for leaving war
Employers Spread Propaganda
Thy "hard-boiled" employer, Mc-
Nutt asserted, "spreads the story as
propaganda for his forays against
stockpiles he has heard of.. . . He
has his information from the horse's
mouth of some "confidential ser-
vice," which tells him the jig is up
for the Axis.
"It is the same kind of 'confiden-
tial, service' tapped by some United
States Senators in 1938 and 1939.
You remember thenfellows who knew
there would' be no war in Europe.
The other end of that' pipeline is in
Industry Shift "Hard to Take"
Some shifts from one type of war
production to another are occurring
and they are "hard to take," he said,
but the total volume of war produc-
tion will remain steady for at least
the first half of 1944, and the need
for manpower for the armed forces
is still increasing.
Concerning President Roosevelt's
request for a worker draft act, Mc-
Nutt said that under a "sound" law,
Detroit's need for a st. ong local
manpower program would not be
reduced at all.

Soldiers, Sailors Deplore
Honolulu's Woman Shortage

By The Associated Press
HONOLULU, Jan. 15.-Ask any
serviceman about wine, women and
song in Honolulu and he begins sing-
ing the blues.
"What women?"
There are about 250 men to every
woman now on this island they
called the Paradise of the Pacific
before the war. And while it might
look like l4appy pickings for the
fairer sex, they are nearly as fed up
with it as the thousands of GI's and
sailors who spend most of their lib-
erty time walking the streets.
An Army officer arrived the other
day fresh from the States. He was
Speech Class Broadcasts
Members of Prof. David Owen's
speech class broadcast a 15-minute
play, "Call Me Guinevere," written
by May' Chosed, at 2:30 p.m. yester-
day through the studios of Morris

confident the woman situation would
be different for him. His little black
address book was filled with tele-
phone numbers, some supplied by
acquaintances recently returned from
Honolulu and others from friends
who wanted him to look up someone.
Four hours of telephoning pro-
duced one invitation to a young wo-
man's home. They had a .drink or
two when an officer friend of hers
arrived unannounced. Then the new
arrival learned of "holdout," a popu-
lar parlor' game in which two or
more males try to outlast the rest
with the idea of ending up alone
with the young woman. The game
generally ends in a 'tie.
The next day the young Army
officer tossed away his. little black
book. (Most of them do,. sooner or
Now he has joined the circle of
servicemen, who spend their eve-
nings playing cards, talking of war,
talking of home, talking of women!

The "Mounted Dental Corps" has
vowed "Never to go riding again .-
at least not for a long time anyway."
Tired of drilling on foot, ten den-'
tal students of Company G of the
3651st Service Unit decided to let1
horses do their leg work for them,
but after last Saturday's excursion
have changed their minds. "We may
try it again, after our wounds have
healed." The Army never says die.
"It was quite painful, to say the
least, to sit in class Monday, even
with all day Sunday to recuper-
ate," commented Pfc. Bob Ober-
halt, spokesman for the riders.
The excursion started off with a
bang when the ten equestrians were
crammed into a station wagon made
to hold five people. Two coeds were
also in the station wagon, "but we
don't know what happened to them.
They disappeared after we started
It took quite awhile to get the
horses started. The mounts seemed
reluctant to leave the stables.
"Star," a horse, and hi rider
were ostracized from the group
from the start. It seems that Star
has a terrible habit of kicking
other horses around him. No man-
Each member of the "corps" came
back to the stables at different in-
tervals. Pfc. Morris Bikhoff's horse,
"Tarzan" decided he didn't like the
company he was in and trotted back
to the stables after only ten minutes
of riding.
"What happened?" asked the
stable manager. "Nothing," said
Bikhoff, "Tarzan just decided to
turn back." Upon further ques-
tioning, Bikhoff was informed that
"Tarzan" is nicknamed the "sand
roller," because he likes to roll in
the sand when he has a rider on
his back. "I'm glad he decided to
turn back instead of rolling in the
