What happened to Dr. Weaver I
himself Is another unanswered ques
tion. Some say that he will resign,
others said he will sit-tight.
This version of what happened or |
what is alleged to have happened
at the meeting has the verification
of a former government worker
close to the administration, who re- ■
lated the identical story as having
been toll as coming from the White
House a week ago. In other words,
it had been previously decided the
FEPC was to have the things it ask
ed for regardless of pressure from

members who had proven their
worth promoted to higher and bet
ter paying posts. This plan has
been abandoned because the War
Manpower commission has region il
offices. There is some talk of as
signing FEPC men to the region »1
offices of the commission, though
there is nothing to sustain this.
No one is certain of what is hap
pening, although information is a
vailable that McNutt’s lieutenants,
McSherry and Altmeyere, opposed
any proposition to give the FEPC
any increased power of budget Alt
meyer is known to be opposed to
the employment of mixed groups,
according to his own statements te
fre a House committee on budgets.
That he will abolish Weaver’s
staff and appoint and name his own,
field men is a statement accredited
to Lawrence Cramer of the FEPC.
This also is without confirmation.
Another ‘'insider” commenting on
Dr. Weaver’s “absence” from the
city says it would not surprise him
if Dr. Weaver had no staff when he
returned to the city on Monday.
While Gov. McNutt’s office is the
logical place from which the inform
ation should emanate, his multiple
duties make it impossible practical
ly t osee him for comment, although
he had tentatively promised an in
terview last Tuesday. Suddenly lie
found himself confronted with an
other gigantic task thrust upon him
by the President, which demanded
his attention elsewhere.
Politically wise observers are
watching every move being marie
and see in the terrific problems be
ing given McNutt, a subtle effort to
b-ing about his elimination from the
1944 political picture. It is com
monly known that the handsome
Hoosier has ambitions and aspirat
ions which do not harmonize with
the present schedule and all “mop
ping up” of difficult problems is
thrown in his lap.
During the conference with Mr.
McNutt, it is said three proposes
were offered by the committee. One
was to abolish the Weaver outfit;
one was to absorb Weaver’s outfit
and the third was to abolish the
FEPC. In other words, make the
FEPC effective and stronger, or do
away with it entirely. Mr. McNutt
would agree to neither of these pro
posals preferring to allow the mat
ter to hang over for a week.
Sides seem to have been taken in
the matter, with some favoring
Weaver and others favoring Cram

gro, who is supposed to benefit
through these organizations, hangs
in the balance.
