TOYS TO HELP IN Chairman Hurley Wants Them to Help in Educa tional Campaign MEANS THEY WILL BE CLASSED ESSENTIAL Need of Men for America's Gigantic After-the-War Merchant Fleet Means Taat Youngsters of Today Must Be Taught a Love for Ooing to Sea. NKW YORK, Oct. 17. At the suggcs tion of Kdward X. Hurley, chairman of th United Ntntcs shilling board, toys tiro to he put to a new use that of od ur.atingthe rifting generation to the val no of an American merchant marine while nt the name time developing in hoys n. love for the son us a profession. AVitb a possible tonnage of 23,000,000 shortly after the close of the war to the eredit of the country's merchant ma rine. Chairman Hurley is concerned with ways and means to keep this great tonnage Adequately manned when this country, in common with the rest of the world, nettles down to the stiff inter national competition for foreign trade which it is predicted will follow the close of hostilities. Just previous to the time that Chair man Hurley sent word to the American Toy Manufacturers' association .that he wanted its cooperation in furthering the idea of an Amcricnn merchant ma rine in the juvenile population of the nation, the toy manufacturers were per turbed at the prospect of their industry being declared a "nonessential" by the war industries board, which would have meant, as a matter of course, that sup plies of matcriuls, coal, and transporta tion would be denied them. The manu facturers formed a federal war service committee and went to Washington pre pared to convince the war industries ooaru ana me council or national de fense that the continuance of toy manu facture was essential to the mainte nance of a proper morale among juve nile Americans during the world war. Mr. Hurley, however, hit upon his idea at just the right moment before the Washington wur bodies had had an op portunity to make a ruling as to the stutus of the toy industry, and now the industry is securely classified as one of the nation ' "ossontinl" industries. The toynmkers' worries ended when they received the following letter from . the shipping board 's chairman : "Mr. A. C. Oilbcrt, Chairman, Amcri can Toy Mfrs. ' Association Commit tee, Now Haven, Conn.: "I am informed that the American Toy Manufacturers' association ap pointed at its war convention last week once an A toy manufacturer,' givo your ideas as to how wo may best co-operate in this project, and tell me what you think of the idea from a business stand point as well as that of national serv ice: . , "Hoping to hear from you at your convenience, and with personal good wishes, I am, "Sincerely yours, "EDWARD N. HURLEY. "Chairman United States Shipping Board." X'pon receipt of this letter, Chairman Gilbert summoned the. toy manufactur ers' committee for a conference in Washington, where conferences were held with James H. Collins, assistant t$ Chairman Hurley, and then , with Mr. Hurley himself. Mr. Hurley told the as sembled manufacturers that the new toys should emphasize the . peace . time uses of ships. "i am just a mucn interested in looking out for the boys who. will bo sailors in 1829 as for the ones who will come on. next year," Chairman Hurley said. " I would like to see a book that will tell about how a cabin boy became a captain; a game that will take a cargo boat from .New lork from port to port, and back again; a wooden ship that can be assembled and will sail and other items of a similar character." Tho shipping board's chairman said that he would do everything he could to push the new idea. He said he would write introductions to nooks, write ad vertisements, give his O. K. to toys, or do anything else that would help put the pfan through. The only thing he wants is a quick response from the manufacturers, and of this assurance was given bv Fletcher F. Dodge, secre tnry of the Manufacturers' association, who, at his headquarters in the Flat iron building, said the toymakers were fired with enthusiasm to give effect to Chairman Hurley's suggestions. . Mr. MEN OVER 37 TO BE CALLED IN MARCH Fletcher said, however, that the new class of toys might not be on the mar- Gen. Crowder Expects to Get Additional 2,000,000 by July 1 of Next Year.
