! ii-i> t o?.la v how the Mussel Shoals group;
j of war plants were built. ,
It r. mained. however, for the law
yer, W*. II. .MeCary. of Binuinghani, to j
(present the charges at the inquiry here
as* to wholesale waste ami oj^trava*
' gunce in construct ion of the SI.000,000 i
war project, the :utuve o: w hich the |
? eominittt ?? s striving to determine. I
Kniployed l?v the Department of jus- |
tiru to see how things wore going at f
[the plant. .Mo(*ary declared that hu and
? other agents were watched in turn by1
secret it Ken tti hired by tho builders. j
[?'or nearly two hours tho young wit-'
in.-.-- recall.d tlje committee with all]
sorts ?>! evidence tending to support!
his charges, ending up i111 the allega- i
tien that several carloadw of brick;
were brazenly removed from the well-j
guarded plant and shipped to Sheflleld,!
nenrby and iher<- used In the constt'Uo
tlon of flue building on the prlnci*
pal ft reel of the town.
Itepivsontatlvo iJnrrett. Democrat.'
Tennessee, drew from the witness tho
statement that, so far as lie kuc\\'.
the Department of Justice or other
I'Vderal agencies never proceeded
against the alleged brick thief although
government agents identified the prop
erty. or others accused of fraud and
theft. In describing conditions as he
reported them to Washington, MeCary1
said lie was directed to Jooh into :
stories that the Mussel Shoals builders
who he said, got :t and 1-2 tier cent
nit ail expenditures, up ?o J30.000.000.;
were paying day laborers fltijled mc? i
ehanies wages and thjt the army of!
workers always knocked off before the)
whistle blew. 1
After tolling how }t<> had seen thirty
carpcntere unloading a carload of
?brick, the witness declared that ii
bad been proved in a number of in
stances that some workmen wore on
two pay rolls. They would work a
little while in one part of the grounds,
he said, and then run along to the
other to be chocked in at l>otii others,
according: to the investigator, reported
for duty, and then went to town, re
turning to the plant just before tiie
closing hour .*0 us to liu given credit
for u ?lull day's pay.
This Hituation, MeCary charged, was
due to inefficient timekeeping system
and the custom of taking thy fore
man's word for it.
Ah another instance of removal of
government property, MoCary told thg
committco that four or live bungalow
houses at the plant were taken down
bodily, loaded on government trucks
and hauled to liast Florence and there
set up as homes for people living in
them today. v*
During examination of Colon??l John
K.' Clement, commanding ofllcor at
Mussje Shoals. Chairman Graham in
illeated that the committee was con
siderinjr the advisability of suggesting
that the pmut be converted into 11
fertiliser factory at an outlay of
000,000 to start with, and with a
force of U.500 men. It was evident
that the committee regarded the pro
ject too ?nig to scrap or throw away
for a sons.
Th.-> story of the deserted village at
what is known by the War Depart
ment and locally as plant No. 1 was
related by Colonel Hardee Chamblles
In charge there now. With the land
and "houses, the. vllagc cost 1 000.
Total coat of this plant was $13,000,000.
