Local USES Maps Campaign
To Promoie Veteran Skills
Charles J. W-trner, manager of the local United State*
Employment Service, today mapped a campaign to acquaint
the community with the skills and job qualifications of re-
turning veterans -vho are applying for work at the USFS
office. "Many of the returned veterans of World War II are
better equipped for jobs than when they went into the serv-
ice." Mr. Warner said. He added that "many veterans learned
new skills while in the service which cut be easily utilised in
industrial or commercial jobs,"

The government can do several

to cooperate with the government,
it just continues to manage as it
did in the past, except that the
government is supervisor.
Which means Management pays

it mnkes after paying expenses.
This is what happened when the
navy seized the strike-bound oil
2. if the management refuses to
cooperate with the government,
the government puts in its own
staff of managers. It pays operat-
ing expenses, including wages, out
of government funds. Any profits
it makes, the government keeps.
The army says this is what hap-
pened when it seized the Mont-

January 4 at Fort Biss.

Who pays the wages?
Men and women who work for wages get their
pay checks from the company. Where does the
company get its money?
Obviously, from the sale oj its products. In other
words, from other men and women wlyo buy

prices oj the products they make get too h'gh.
Fewer customers are able to buy.
The result is fewer sales and fewer jobs.
For the sake oj employes, just as much as jor the
sake oj investors, management must keep in mind
the jact that the customer pays the wages.
Most of what the customer pays goes for wages,
dircctly and indirectly.
Thus, in the long run sales and jobs grow from
a proper balance between wages and prices.

(This is the second of two col-
imns on Generalissimo Franco by
Hewitt MacKenzie, to whom the
chief of the Spanish state has just
given an interview.)
By DEWITT MACKENZIE
AP World Traveler
MADRID. Jan. 25 — There are
several conclusions which I have
reached regarding Chief of State
Franco, both from general obser-
vation and from my unusual in-
terview with him at the Pardo
palace, and they are these:
He knows the goal for which he
is headed. He believes that he
is on the right road for the good
of Spain. He is a man of granite
convictions from which it is dif-
ficult to move him.
Now those are points which we
must understand in order to ar-
rive at the correct appraisal of El
Caudillo's actions. Of course, the
United States and other countries
have taken bitter exceptions to
many of the policies he has pur-
sued. There was the Potsdam dec-
laration which decreed that the
Franco regime rendered Spain un-
suitable to participate in the Unit-
j ed Nations organization.
There is small doubt, as I see it,
! that Spain is orienting its policy
j toward the United States and Eng-
j land. I told Generalissimo Franco
j the impression prevailed abroad
j that this was so, and asked for his
comment. His reply, while couched
in cautious terms would seem to
confirm that idea. This is the way
he put it.
"Neither during the Spanish Na-
tional movement (civil war of 1936-
39) nor after it did the Spanish
government cease taking care of its
relations with the United States
and Great Britain, and even in
those moments of the war when
the passions and errors of others
could have made those relations
suffer, Spain sought to avoid those
dangers with its serenity and good
"You wiii understand that the
situation of Spain was not easy.
It had to defend its independence,
which was threatened by the needs
of the belligerents, and conserve
at the same time the peace and
friendship of all nations.
"Because of our civilizing work
in America, and the numerous
bonds which unite us, Spain con-
siders itself a spiritual part of the
American continent and feels at-
traction and admiration for the
great accomplishments of North
America, aspiring to a greater in-
terchange in all respects. In view
of this, as many Spaniards as pos-
j sible are putting themselves into
I contact with the North American
people and whenever North Amer-
icans visit us there is mutual un-
derstanding and esteem.
"With England we have had a
century and a half of peace and
good relations, and the interchang-
es of all kinds between our peo-
ples are traditional.
"Before the war we esteemed
the peace and comprehension that
was to be found among the peoples
of the west: Today we accept the
lessons of the war and we consider
them (peace and comprehension*
still more necessary. North Amer-
ica, Great Britain and Spain are
peoples who live on the shore of
the same sea. For that reason, as
distances shorten because of the
progress of speed, we are by na-
ture called to understand one an-
other. The will and good faith ot
the Spanish nations along thes<r
lines cannot be disputed."
