Vol. A, No. 5 _______Granada,
Charges of "inefficiency" and
"bottleneck" leveled at the Employ-
ment department were answered by
Willis J. Hanson, registrar, at a
meeting of block representatives
Monday at the 7H recreation hall.
Hanson said that the confusion
in the Employment office is due
primarily to "a Bad start" and to
"pirating of workers" by various
departments. "Conditions are much
improved now, however," he added,
"People should not go to work
on any Center project without a
proper authorization from my of-
fice," the registrar warned. Even-

A discussion of the labor short-
age on the local farm project and
in hauling of coal was terminated
with a statement from Hanson that
the problem w.as not.his., and that, it
should be solved by the residents.
Also under fire at the meeting

to help harvest grapes and egg
plants around Livingston, his homo
.town, and he found that soldiers
are occupying the Hercod assembly
center.
On phe trip back, ICaji was
