Wilson Outlines
Issues Warning to Profiteers;
Hints Possible Wage Modification
WASHINGTON-(AP)-Mobilization Director Charles E. Wilson
outlined the nation's mobilization program last night and issued
a warning against all profiteers.

defense emergency without being prosecuted.

HE PROMISED TO RECOMMEND legislation to back up this
pledge, made in his first address to the country on the progress of the
gigantic mobilization program. -His speech was broadcast nationwide.
It contained a possible hint that the government's proposed

has bitterly assailed it as too
low. He said:
"Wage policies are being modi-
fied again to conform with the best
interest of the entire economy."
In outlining the mobilization
program Wilson disclosed:
1. The United States intends to
expand jet engine production ca-
pacity to 18,000 a month.
2. The United States will be
asked for $150,000,000,000 ex-
tra for defense "in the next two
or three years." Over a three-
year period this would be about

RFC Letters
By Truman
President Finds
Nothing 'Illegal'
Truman stirred the wrath of in-
vestigating Senators yesterday as
it was disclosed he had collect-
ed a file of letters written by Con-
gressmen to the Reconstruction
Finance Corporation, but he later
explained he found no evidence of
"illegal influence" on the huge
lending agency.
President Truman said he saw
no reason to make the correspond-
ence public because, he said, it did
not show any illegality on the part
of the executive branch or legis-

wise, he said, "the material will be

The row on Capitol Hill start-

subcommittee, which has harg-
ed that influence' emanating
from the White House had been
exerted on lending policies of
the RFC.
Senators on the subcommittee
discovered that the President had
ordered the mass of correspond-

It was disclosed that the Pres-

ask favorable consideration of
loan applications. Among the
correspondents are Sen. Ful-
bright (D-Ark.), chairman of
the subcommittee, and Sen.
Douglas (D-Ill.), also a commit-
tee member.
The President issued a brief
statement through his press sec-
retary, Joseph Short, which said

Senate Action
To Be Speeded
On Year Olds
WASHINGTON - ()- Senate
administration leaders yesterday
