387 other men and standing in long
lines for a shave, the average ex-

fuel to the flames of current and
impending labor disputes,and I
neither industry or labor should
object very strenuously to this
mild dosage of government inter-
"The fact-finders, however, need
clearer leadIs on current national la-
bor policy than are now available, if
they are not to create unnecessary
confusion by conflicting recommen-_
dations. The government should, for
example, consider whether it really
wants to encourage the nation that'
the individual company's wage rates
should depend primarily on its own
financial position; and the govern-
ment should also make more widely
understood what sorts of voluntary
and involuntary wage increases may
lead to price ceiling changes..
"Of course, the fundamental anti-
inflation force is increase of produc-
tioh and a few words may here be
added on the outlook for production.
There is much force in the familiar
arguments that a high volume of
operations permits substantial in-
creases in wage rates without neces-
sitating increase in prices or sacri-
fices of reasonable profits. Other fa-
vorable factors include recent indi-
cations, e. g. in the Kaiser-Frazer-
UAW contract and in the Ford Motor
negotiations with the Union, that un-
ions may settle for rewards contin-
gent on increasesof output and de-
creases of wildcat strikes.
"On the less favorable side of the
picture, however, are these con-
siderations: In addition totnuier-
ous other uncertainties, the em-
ployer has to face the prospect
that spreading wage disputes will
not only interrupt his operation
but will also raise his costs, for ma-
terials, labor, and all else. (Volun-
tary wage increases also spread rip-
ples of cost advances, as do like-
wise wage advances due to govern-
ment policies, such as revision of
legal minimum wages.)
"Taking into account both favor-
able and unfavorable factors, it seems
probable that so long as price con-
trols are continued, individual ceil-
ings are likely to be raised here and
there; and such increases may not,
for a while, be offset by competitive
price declines or lowered legal ceil-
ings. Expectation that living costs
will rise further within the year is
doubtless one reason why the unions
ask for substantial wage rate in-
creases now.
"Thus, although extension of price
controls plus the further spread of
wage advances now in prospect, as in-
fluenced by fact-finding boards, can
scarcely afford guarantees against
any further inflation, they do appear
to be key items for moderating the
post-war boom, and hence for mini-
mizing this boom's reaction."

Meat Strike Affects
Army Chow Supply
WASHINGTON, Jan. 21, (P)-The
meat strike is beginning to be noticed
in the army's chow, overseas and at
War Department officials said to-
day that in Europe, the Pacific and
at posts in the United States, mess
sergeants had started serving corned

The general consensus of men liv-
ing in the huge gymnasium-bedroom,
which is furnished with punching
bags, basketball, backboards and
trapeze bars, is that they've lived
in much worse conditions during the
past few years and don't mind too
much, as long as the arrangement is
only temporary.
Object To Study Facilities
Chief objections to living in the
fleldhouse are the lack of toilet and
study facilities. There are only 13
lavatories for shaving and washing
available for the 387 men and four
rooms for studying at night. Most of
them do their home work in their
double-deck beds.
Only one veteran out of 20 inter-
viewed actually was dissatisfied. He
was William H. Moore, discharged
A.A.F. flight officer fromh Traverse
City. Moore said the housing situa-
tion was so "confusing" that he was
returning home and would return to
M.S.C. next fall "when things are
more settled."
Conditions Similar To Army
Here are some typical comments:
Henry D. Bowen, 24, Adrian, a for-
mer A.A.F. technical sergeant: "Yes,
the conditions here are similar to
those in the Army, although the feel-
ing of being forced to live under
these conditions is gone. We don't
have to stay if we don't like it. As
for me, I'm sure the living conditions'
won't hamper my getting an educa-

Kaiser Plans
Factory Colony
Homes To Be Built
Near Willow Run Plant
By The Associated Press
NEW YORK, Jan. 21-Plans for
the construction of a community of
homes "within walking distance" of
the huge Willow Run factory near

interview today by Henry J. Kaiser,
board chairman of the newly-formed

Kaiser said approximately 400 acres

The land is west of the plant, but
Kaiser said some construction would

the value of existing property in the

Greek Rightists
Kill Hostages
ATHENS, Jan. 21-(A)-Fourteen-

hostages have been killed by mem-
bers of an extreme right wing group
who have barricaded themselves in a
mountain village 10 miles northwest
of Kalamai (Kalamata) after reject-
ing a surrender ultimatum, the Greek
government said tonight.
The ultimatum gave the insurgents
until 4 p.m., tomorrow to surrender
or be attacked by government troops.
In Kalamai itself, order was re-
stored fully, the government said,
after the arrival of substantial rein-
forcements, but skirmishing was re-
ported on the outskirts of the city
between government forces and rebel
monarchist groups.
Minister of public order Stamktfis
Merkouris ordered troops and gen-
darmerie to rescue 150 hostages he
said were held in the barricaded

Charging that communist parties

Possibility of a conflict springs not
so much from idealogical differences
as from Russia's "bad faith in keep-

Explaining the Soviet's policy in
China, Chamberlin said that "where
we have been fairly firm, Russia is
more moderate." They are anxious
to avoid a serious clash with the
United States, he said.
"On any count, Russia is as much a
dictatorship as Germany before the

gone too far in praising Russia, he
