One of the most vexing problems of this war is the proper utilization of manpower. Corson, former Director of the U.S. Employment Service, has fully analyzed the problem. Although he claims to be opposed to a National War Service, he recognizes that neither volunteer nor competitive wage bidding has provided the manpower needed and that the ""government must assume the responsibility"". He is frank in his criticism of both the War Manpower Commission and Selective Service. He makes one realize the complexities of the problem -- outlines the conflicting needs of the army, industry, labor, agriculture and the civilian. But he presents no solution. Not a book for the many -- but clears the air on this subject.
