The article presents information on former CHARLES E. WILSON, Mobilization Director in the U.S. Wilson is not leaving the mobilization program when it is "rolling pretty well" but rather at a period when it is in critical condition. One has lost time in military preparation which one did not have to lose. Many aspects of the program are moving ahead but the full and essential coordination paramount to its success has been missing. For this, Wilson must bear the brunt of the responsibility. Wilson has not only failed to meet his hazy schedules, but he has constantly revised his own schedules downward.
