After Nazis Fall
J. A. Krug Says Supply
Shift 'Not Practicable'
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, March 24-Filling
up the supply pipeline to the Paci-
fic theater will demand continued
high war production well into the
period following German collapse,
J. A. Krug said today.
The WPB chairman in an interview
helped to clarify the running con-
troversy whether the troops shifted
from Europe to the Orient would
leave most of their equipment behind
and be rearmed for the war against
Krug Agrees With Batt
Krug agreed with his vice chair-
man, William L. Matt, who said the
army and air forces would have to
be "pretty completely re-equipped,"
since it would be "simply not prac-
ticable" to re-assemble, repair and
transport materiel from Europe along
with the troops-the men will be
moved too fast.
This does not contradict the army's
repeated claim that it will salvage "as
much equipment as possible" for use
against the Japanese, Krug stated.
Engel Demands Explanation
The prospect of paying for new
arms for the Pacific has alarmed
some Congressmen. Rep. Engel (R.-
Mich.) demanded an explanation
from Secretary of War Stimson, serv-
ing notice that he would seek to
cut the army's next appropriation to
the extent of any duplicated produc-
Stimson replied by letter that the
War Department's policy was to make
"maximum transfer" of all equip-
ment which could be "effectively
used" against the Japanese foe.
Undersecretary of War Robert P.
Patterson took up the issue this week,
telling reporters that the army al-
ready has made estimates of the
amounts expected to be salvaged, and
that the percentage would run high
on artillery and other durable items.
No War Department Denial
There was no War Department de-
nial, however, that the transferred
men would have to be substantially
On the contrary, the army feels
growing concern over the amount of
shipping needed to bring large forces
to bear against the Japanese in the
months following the Nazi collapse.

turn of American and Filipino forces

By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, March 24 - The
American Legion made public today
what it called "a simple, clear-cut
program" for the employment of re-
turning war veterans.
Its four-point proposal was built
around these basic elements:
1. "Welcome them back as men
with a sincere greeting, an honest
assurance that a job is awaiting
them, fitted to their abilities.
2. "Make a realistic analysis of
the jobs available, and of the vet-
eran's aptitude, interests, ambi-
tions, tastes and training.
3. "Fit jobs and veterans together
as the result of such realistic ap-
4. "Cooperate intelligently with the
veteran after he is placed in A job;
with ready willingness to make ad-
justments as actual experience on the
job makes those adjustments advis-
The program was prepared by the
Legion's national employmentcom-
mittee. The job of carrying it out
was assigned to Ralph H. Lavers, the
organization's national employment
director. It was made public by Ed-
ward N. Scheiberling, national com-
mander, who declared it was based
on "sound business efficiency and
necessity" and not on "sentiment."
"These are the veterans, the
cream of Americals human re-
sources," a foreword read. "They
are the men we must employ first,
not because of duty, not out of
sentiment, but because we cannot
do without their courage, skill and
initiative. We cannot let their fresh

leadership become embittered and
Scheiberling said the Legion pre-
pared the program after consulta-
tion with American business.
"By every rule of ability, of eco-
nomic necessity, by law and senti-
ment," the Legion said, "the veteran
has first call upon American business
"But we should do the veteran an
ill favor if we employed him and left
other millions of workers out of jobs.
That way lies economic collapse, state
socialism or state capitalism."
The problem it said, is one of
the fullest possible employment-.
a job for every man and woman
The Legion estimated that 55,000,-
000 postwar jobs must be found "if
we are to preserve our free America."
"Although four houses have been
closed sincei1941, the Inter-Coopera-
oeative Council expects intensive cam-
pus co-op expansion after the war,"
Frank Nakamura recently re-elected
ICC president said yesterday.
Nakamure stated that the local
co-op is purchasing two houses, at
816 Forest and 1017 Oakland while
improving houses already in use.
"At present five houses, of which
three are women's residences, are
open," he said, "but after the war,
local co-op membership will be raised
by veterans who belonged to the
group before going into service."
