War In usry
Is Taken Over
President Uses Emergency
Powers For Seventh
Time In Crisis
By The Associated Press
President Roosevelt exercised his
emergency powers for the seventh
time yesterday to order a private in-
dustry taken over by the Army.
On orders from the White House
Acting Secretary of War Robert P.
Patterson directed Major Ralph F.
Gow of the Boston Ordnance District
to take possession of the S. A. Woods
Machine Company of South Boston,
Mass., and operate it.
Patterson said failure of the firm
to comply with a War Labor Board
order requiring the inclusion of
maintenance of union membership
and arbitration clauses in a contract
with CIO workers "has created a se-
rious threat to the production of
vital war material which it manu-
The plant management had asked
the Board to hold up its order pend-
ing a test in the courts, but at the
same time gave assurances that it
would cooperate with the govern-
ment if the plant were taken over.
CIO aluminum workers discussed
in Pittsburgh a report of their pres-
ident, Nick A. Zonarich, that union
members favor a general strike in the
industry unless the WLB reconsid-
ers a denial of wage increases.
The board denied a $1 daily rise
on the ground the workers had re-
ceived more than a 15 per cent in-
crease since Jan. 1, 1941. Zonarich,
said the increase has been eight cents
an hour, while the Aluminum Com-
pany of America said the rise was 23
MAJOR LEAGUE STANDINGS:
Baseball Can't Depend
To See It Through
'By HALE CHAMPION
From Associated Press Summaries
Baseball men have been having a
whale of a time lately contemplating
next year's player crop in the Majors.
They have, visions of reincarnated
versions of St. Petersburg's 75 or
over ball club cavorting on the na-
It must have been a rude jolt when
they ran into the draft rulings of the
last few weeks. Evidently playing
soldier isn't strictly a young man's
game, and clubs that felt safe be-
cause their players averaged over
thirty are now taking another look
For instance, there is one man
above all others who is the Old Man
of big-time baseball, Ted Lyons. He
is 41 years old, which is just about
as aged as any ball player ever gets
without retiring. Yet just yesterday
a draft board in Vinton, Louisiana,
wanted to have a look at Mr. Lyons.
They already know. he's Class I, but
they're interested in adding an A.
And Lyons is not the only old man.
Charlie Gehringer, who came out of
retirement with the Detroit Tigers
only to serve as a pinch-hitter, also
is taking steps which a draft board
dictates. Now Gehringer dropped
baseball because of aches and pains,
but he's still wanted by the classic
finger-pointer, Uncle Sam.
By way of contrast, there's another
player on these same Tigers who
would seem able to do just about any-
thing the Army demanded of him.
But young Lefty Hal Newhouser has
been told that life in khaki is not
for the likes of him. Rules you know
must be observed.
Meanwhile, despite the fact that
ball players are going into the serv-
ice right and left, Branch Rickey of
the Cardinals' front office announces
that baseball must be continued. If
so, I expect t

This Paramount comedy concerns
the trials and tribulations of Mr.
and Mrs. Cugat (Ray Milland and
Betty Field) who are addicted to
the 'whiffles'--little white lies. Based
upon the best-seller Isabel Scott Ro-
rick novel, the picture presents Ray
Milland as George Cugat, a young
banker with a future and a slightly
giddy wife. Betty Field is the wife
and Pat Morrison is the 'other wo-
man,' a man-mad divorcee who sets
her cap for Mr. Cugat almost wreck-
ing the happy home.

'Reap the Wild Wind,' and Betty
Field recently completed 'Kings Row.'

a total 72-hole total of 273 strokes-

Nelson, after a scintillating roun
of 63 on his opening jaunt around
the tough par 71 Mayfield course,
came back with rounds of 69,69 and
72 to hold a five-stroke margin over
Herman Keiser of Akron, who finish-

Declaring that he was not forget-

all-important, Wickard advocated
the payment of government subsi-
