Shortages Force Toy-Makers
To Cut Christmas Production


By The Associated Press
BOSTON, Nov. 11.-Santa Claus'
workshops this year have run up
against war-created shortages of
paper, lumber, metal and manpower
--not to mention price and market-
ing problems--and as a result he
won't be passing out as many toys
and games as usual.
That's the opinion of representa-
ti New England toy and game manu-
facturers. But they've used a lot of
Yankee ingenuity to keep this "min-
iature of all industries" producing.
They've found substitute materials
and they've employed their adult
imaginations to improve dolls and
other items. And there will be many

good toys and games, but the chil-
dren will have to wait for some of
the established favorites until other
Manufacturers do not fully agree
on just how happy they can make
the children on the Yule holiday.
One said that "Yankee ingenuity has
once again assured American young-
sters of a merry Christmas for 1944."
were returning to favor.
Manager - designer Kenneth E.1
Haselton of the N. D. Cass Company
said, "The progress of the war has
practically wiped out the demand
for war toys, such as tanks, guns,
etc. The trend is now constructive-
no longer destructive."

General Urges
Efficient Job
Oil Conversion
DAYTON, O., NOV. 11-(P)-The
history of the nation for the next 20
years and the future happiness of
every American for the next two gen-
erations depends upon the efficient
settlement of present government
contracts, Lt. Gen. William S. Knud-
sen, director of the vast Air Techni-
cal Service Command, declared to-
Calling for public understanding
of what he termed "thegreatest job
which America faces, next to winning
the war," General Knudsen express-
ed concern over "possible public apa-
thy" in the coming months over con-
tract settlements.
"For decades to come, the nation's
entire economy-and that means jobs
and money in the bank and a chance
to send your son to college-depends
upon the outcome of the job we have

ahead of us," he asserted in a for-
mal statement.
"Labor will have to understand
that there will be some unemploy-
ment as we terminate contracts and
cut back production.


The community of modern life and
the church of ancient origins must
be joined to effectively serve the
people, Dr. Edward W. Blakeman,
University religious counselor, as-
serts in a recent book.
His views and commerns on reli-
gion, education and world peace are
included in "Approaches to World
Peace," a symposium published about
the 1943 Conference on Science, Phil-
osophy and Religion held at Colum-
bia University.
Need to Extend Religion
"An actual example of this, is
shown that in cities where juvenile
delinquency is increasing, but 20 per
cent of the families are in contact
with a minister. That most of the
delinquency is outside this small
group points the necessity of extend-
ing the service of religion to all,"
Dr. Blakeman said.
A central counseling agency of re-
ligious leaders, where each pastor
has the dual purpose of serving the
public at large and also his own
congregation, is suggested.
Peace Calls for Education
In regard to education in Axis
countries and enduring peace, Dr.
Blakeman insists that schools are to
exist for all the children, irrespect-
ive of their religious background, in
order that they may be trained in a
creative community fashion. He ad-
ded that "The current church control
is irreligious . . . and tends to cast
that shadow of hypocrisy over every
conference on political orders or
trade pacts or race relations or edu-
cational matter."
Summing up his views, he said that
the healing phases of religion, the
human elements in every faith and
the freedom to worship without the
heavy ecclesiastical structure which
divides communities, must be made
a function of common schools to all
dough boys 'Told
'What They're
NOV. 5-(delayed)-(P)-If the av-
erage American doughboy eventually
reaches Berlin without a well-formed
opinion of what he's fighting for, why
the enemy must be eliminated, what
to do with Germany after the wari
and why he shouldn't fraternize
with the Reich's civilians, it won't be
because he hasn't been told.
The Army has uncorked a full-
blown "orientation" campaign, to
teach him just those things, throug
Army newspapers, pamphlets, week-
ly magazine-style editions and the
Army radio.
"Propaganda" Methods Used
If it weren't for the bad defini-
tion the word has acquired, you
probably could call it a "propaganda"
campaign, for apparently it is a con-
certed effort to use every possible
medium to convince a lot of guys
about these things.
The fraternization phrase was giv-
en teeth recently in the new ruling
which makes it cost a doughboy from
$25 to $65 for talking unnecessarily
to German civilians.
German Problem Discussed
Editions of "Army Talks" discussed
"what to do with Germany" and
pointed out what the pamphlet's ed-
itors called errors made during the
latter phases and after the last war.
As an example it said that Presi-
dent Wilson erred in not taking the
advice of generals Pershing and Bliss'

Fires 4 Shots
Into Factory
DETROIT. Nov. 11.-(/P)--William
H. Haideman. 61-year-old former
constable at Addison, Mich., was
named in a federal warrant today
charging him with willful destruction
of national defense materials.
Haldeman who fired four shots
through the doormay of the Addison
Heat Treating Company plant be-
cause, he said, the noise of the plant
irritated him, has been held in the
Lenawee County jail. He will be
brought to Detroit for arraignment
on Monday.
Thornton said Haldeman had
threatened for some time to shoot
into the plants unless they ceased
making what he regarded as too
much noise.
