Cause Waste of
Factory Space
DETROIT, July 15.-(/P)--George
Romney, managing director of the
Automotive Council for War Produc-
tion, said today that as a result of
production cutbacks, contract can-
cellations amounting to $14,000,000,-
000 to date, and design modifications
on war productions "mountainous
piles" of obsolete parts, scrapped
manufacturing equipment and idle
raw materials are beginning to clut-
ter up valuable manufacturing space
in the automobile factories.
Romney said that partiala and im-
portant steps for prompt' clearance
are represented in the recently en-
acted Murray-George Contract Ter-
mination Law, but asserted that
much remains to be done "if we are
to avoid a maze of last minute diffi-
culties when mass cancellations of
war orders occurs."
He cited the case of one automo-
tive company where, he said, as much
as 30 acres of space, both indoors
and out, is currently occupied with
parts and materials from a cancelled1
tank contract. The original produc-
tion schedule under the contract, het
said, called for delivery of 7,040 ve-
hicles, but after 2,728 had been man-i
ufactured, operations were ordered1

wife, Belise, his stupidly romantic sis-
ter and Armanda, his pedantic child.
During the course of the drama,
Chrysale becomes involved in many
family situations which are full of
comedy and bristling with ridicule
for the manners of society.
Byron Pershing will be cast as the
worthy citizen, Chrysale, Merline
Case will portray his arogant wife,
and Clara Behringer will play the
role of his ardent sister, Belise.
Other members of the cast include
Annette Chaikin as Armande, Elea-
nor Hutchison as Henriette, Bob Ac-
ton as Clitandre, John A. Merewe-
ther as Ariste, Zeta Barbour as Mar-
tine, George Hale as Trissoten, Carol
McCormick as Lepine, Dan W Mullin
as Vadius, and Orris Mills as the no-

rected by Theodore Viehman, who is
nationally known for his brilliant
interpretations of both Moliere's and
Shakespeare's works.
Herbert Philippi will be in charge
of the setting, Robert Burrows and
Ernest Asmus will handle the tech-
nicolor direction, and Miss Lucy Bar-
ton will be the costumiere for the

Ford Motor Company should agitate
things of this nature when officials
of the union were at a convention
fighting to uphold the no-strike
"I have called an emergency meet-
ing for 3 p. m. Sunday to ask the
workers to go back to work and up-
hold the no-strike pledge," Mr.
Quillico said.
Company officials issued no for-
mal statement, but said that there
was no reason for the strike as the
workers had not filed a formal com-
plaint or rievances.
When the strike started, all but
two elected union officials were at
the Grand Rapids convention. When
they returned from Grand Rapids
yesterday they ordered the workers
back to work.
The Bomber Plant was idle yester-
day for the first time in more than
two years of Liberator Bomber pro-
duction because of labor difficulties.
A walkout of crane operators and
floor helpers caused a five hour shut-
down during the day and when the
night shift reported they found the
plant closed by a management order
because "crane operators worked
sporadically and held meetings in
the plant," a company spokesman
