With this action, the National Production authority (NPA) felt it had provided the basic kit of tools needed to keep the defense pro- duction drive in high gear despite prospective shortages. A single priority rating iden- tified by the symbol "DO." for "defense order" will give mil- itary contracts let by the Armed' Forces or the Atomic Energy com-1 mission the right of way in unyl defense plant. i The NPA regulation, announced] by Administrator William H. Har- rison last night, requires every company to accept "DO." orders and make delivery on time. Civ- ilian work must be sidetracked if necessary. Officials said they knew of no delays on munitions work thus far. But shortages of steel, copper, alu minum and other vital materials are expected to develop as the arms program picks up speed. A manufacturer who receives a "DO" contract may serve the rat- ing on his suppliers, to obtain parts, raw materials and acces- sories; .and the subcontractors in turn miy use it on their suppliers. Companies which already hold military orders are expected to flood the Pentagon with requests for the rating in the next few- days, simply because it will insure them against any future break- down In the flow of .materials.

The aldermen stated their posi- tion at Monday night's regular meeting when the matter of send- ing delegates to a meeting in the state highway commissioners' of- fice later this month was brought up for discussion. The meeting was arranged recent- ly after 49 owners of business firms on the present highway 61 and 14 I route had protested the relocation of the highway and filed s, petition with the state highway department asking reconsideration of the plan, In a letter to Herbert Kleyla, one of the petitioners, the state com- missioner stated that he would con- fer with the protesting group and suggested that the city council pro- pably would wish to be represented.

Chatham speculated the tanks might be almost immune to dinary fire from weapons which could not lower their muzzles enough to aim at the low tanks. The drivers, the congressman conjectured, probably lie prone to operate the tanks. town and through the business district. A loud speaker car or sound truck has been obtained and it will play the two new songs written by Max, The caravan will stop long enough for Conrad to make a few brief remarks about his transatlantic crossings. The caravan will then adjourn, to the Hotel Wi- nor.a where a luncheon will be held in honor of Conrad. Seating at the luncheon will be limited to 150. Conrad's New York agent said he did not know why the stop was made in Canada as Conrad had planned to make a ten-hour' hop from Gander, Newfoundland, to Teterboro, N. J. The agent said Conrad would also stop at Old Town, Me., to pick up equipment he left on his flight to Europe. His planned arrival time at Teterboro was not known. Mrs. Conrad and the children, arrive in New York today on the French liner Liberte and the agent said he was having trouble finding them hotel rooms because of the World series. Conrad left Paris last Thursday, flying by the northern route through Iceland. Tickets for the hotel luncheon may be obtained from the Hotel Winona desk. litically.

The information regarding traffic at the intersection was collected by counters who were stationed at the intersection for the full 24- hour period Friday. The council generally agreed that if traffic is that heavy at the inter- section, automatic controls should be installed.
