ANGLE Editor— BAN ON' PREFABRICATEI) HOMES | The senate defense investigating committee! is seeking a showdown on the government labor policies in the construction field by calling beforeI bidder in a Wayne County, Michigan, housing pro-l ject, was denied the contract. One concern claiming to use CIO building la- bor offered a bid of $979,000 against a bid by an AFL contractor of $1,410,000, a mere $431,000l stickup on the project, but the sticker was thatl the low bidder was planning prefabricated houses, which the building trades oppose. In these days of rising costs of material and, labor the average small home builder for himself or for others is outclassed by the huge spending of government funds to provide housing in some; communities, which in itself is a sad maladjust- ment of domestic economy for which the nation’s labor will in due time suffer with other taxpayers. Those who plan for labor-saving and cost- cutting methods to meet the demand for homes all over the land should be encouraged rather than. the first division L. penalized either by labor or government; and some day the administration must take notice of the abuses being practiced on the people under the mistaken appeal for national defense. .,r . r ) SHEL'llON-MASON COUNTY JOURNAD ,‘Tu‘egiaytpctobef , d. . g. -L._ ,2...’ w- “~L_m.._.v— h__-.__.m.

Try to find a tighter race than the city bowling league is tangled up in now. After five weeks of play the eight quintets are cram— med within three games from top to bottom. All the lower clubs hung up odd-game victories in Friday's matches, greatly tightening the standings. Mason Laundry clung to its one—game edge on the field for the simple reason that the clubs within distance also suffer- ed defeats. ,Out of the night’s play stands Mark Fredson‘s excellent work on the headpin. -The Daviscourt Ba- kery anchorinan stepped off a 253 single game anda 662 total, both new high marks for the sea- son to date.

FOOD COSTS BEING HELD DOWN As yet the consumers are more scared than hurt by rising costs of food necessities, with the exception of meats, and there is no apparent scarcity of most essential lines of canned goods judging by the stocks displayed in local stores and the supplies daily arriving to keep up stock. The same is not true in heavy goods, parti- cularly of metal, and of most clothing, paper and shoe lines, for these materials have been largely requisitioned for army supply, and there. is a shortage to dealers and higher costs reflect- ed in all new purchases when they can be gotten. But with a penny here and a nickle or dime more there it may seem that the cost of living is rising, but on examination it will likely bel found that the real necessities of family living have not increased much while the so-called lux- uries are adding up to an inereased cost of “higher living.” ' However, the average citizen who is not in the line of increased wages or salary, will bel more likely to realize that costs are slowly rising in many directions, and that values as related to money are more or less inflated, and he will won— “der what will happen to his modest income on the 1942 models. N0 EXCUSE iron MOST RESTRICTIQNS As the folly and iniquity of the short-sighted policy of restriction of normal industry and busi- ness, and particularly that of nondefense home- building, becomes apparent a big protest is go- ing up over the land in the smaller communities which are not faVored with so-called defense spending. There is no sound reason for limiting the supply of the moderate needs for Small-tOWn building since this is limited at. bestby rising prices of labor and materials as well as enforced shortage for alleged army needs, and by. the tak- ing of skilled labor away from these smaller'com- munities for government work at wages no pri- vate purse can afford. The folly lies in the fact that small industry and business is expected not only to save the peo- ple from needless hardships in their daily needs, but more important, tow enable the bulk of the, people who make up the volume of income taxes demanded by government, to meet their obliga- tions and support the drain for war purposes.
