One of the first sections to be placed under construction is that from Kingston to Catskill. It was stated that plans for starting the work on this section were com- pleted and by spring the work would get under way, however no work has yet been done toward securing the rights of way for the highway which will run over a new alignment generally to the west of Kingston, following -the ;eheral route of the old "King's Highway." Inquiry of a state highway offi- cial brought forth the informa- tion that while the route from Kingston to Catskill was generally laid out, Surveys were still going on near Saugcrtics where test borings were being made to de- termine the cjcact location of the route. South of Kingston the route, it was not defi- nitely laid out but surveys har determined the general course ol the route. Just where the route would cross the Rondout creek is not.yet definitely determined but it was assumed the route froir Ncwburgh north would run well west of Roulc 9-W along the foot- hills passing west of Kingston near Hurley and cross the Plank road on the Kingston con- tinuing north along the general location of the present "King's highway." Construction of this section of the Thruway would eliminate one of the worst "boltle-necks" be- tween New York and Albany, that section between Saugcrtics and Catekill. The Thruway is to start at the New Jersey border, connecting with ihc George Washington Bridge which carries irafiic from Jersey routes into New York city. It will go north io Albany, swing west via Scbcneciady, Ulira, Sy- racuse Rochester to Buffalo. ihirn lorn southwest io end at ihe Pennsylvania line near Eric.

"of this city, for factory purposes, was approved by the Common Council Tuesday evening, with but one dissenting vote, -that of Alderman -James J. Carroll of thejTenth Ward, in which ward the park is located. The petition was filed in Novem- ber by District Attorney N. LeVan Haver on behalf of Mr. Moak, who some years ago bought the old Barmann brewery property and Barmann Park. The park has been used by the city for a number of years as a playground for the children of that area. Mr. Haver in filing the petition stated that the sale of Barmann Park to the Pilgrim Co. was con- tingent upon the right being ob- tained from the council to have a railroad switch laid into the park, which was to' be used as the nitc for a proposed factory the Pilgrim Co.. planned to. erect, The petition when filed was re- ferred to the laws and rules com- mittee of the council, who report- ed favorably on it last night Before the vote was taken on granting the petition, Alderman Carroll spoke briefly, opposing the granting of the petition.

The President and Secretary of Commerce Wallace praised the war-time role of industry. Reconversion problems, the President added in a letter to the National Association of Manu- facturers read at the opening of the "golden anniversary Con- gress of. American wera "due to many factors, some un- avoidable, perhaps, but all cap- able of orderly solution and speedy solution." "Much depends upon such a so- iution for these he said. "I am hopeful, therefore, that the manufacturers of America will ap- iroach the problems which con. front us now in the spirit with which they approached their prob- lems during the war. This will re- quire not only determination, but the spirit of tolerance and ability to see the other fellow's viewpoint which is characteristic of our democracy." Secretary Wallace, long identi- fied: with., the liberal the New Deal in the minds of many N.A.M. members, expressed theso views: "We can't spend our way into good business conditions just by dipping freely into the federal treasury." "Satisfactory profits for stable enterprises and higher rewards for venture capital in-new undertak- ngs are essential." "Increased output per worker s essential to a steady rise in real wages." "Call it1 by any name you ull employment, full production, )r plain, ordinary 'good business do have universal igreement that that is what wa fant." Wallace said his full employ- lent plan was "fundamentally a cclaration of policy and an as- umption of responsibility hv.'th' edcral 'it" will' ssist and not hinder the private nterprise system in operating at high levcl-'of production lo bring bout adequate employment op- portunities and a better standard f living for all." Increases Are No Answer The secretary declared: "Ob- iously, the answer isn't simply nc of raising wages, then raising :osls, then raising prices, and go- ig on into a vicious spiral of in- ation. What we do need is a enuinc increase in mass ng power. We are up against othing less than the necessity or raising the American standard f above pre-war that means making iorc goods and selling more of them to more people than ever tjcforc."
