THE NEWS REVIEW (Continued from Page One) these young Britishers don't get into cue of the latter variety. A yoitng Englishman tossed into the right kind of an American school could learn much about this country. If he got into the wrong kind however, the insufferable kind where headmasters, instructors and old grads all school isn't an exact duplicate of Eton or Rugby—he would simply be wasting a year. XXX It is interesting to note that a New York supreme court judge has upheld the right of the citizen to picket a busines house in his capacity as a customer. A Bronx neighborhood organization felt that prides charged for bread were too high. So they began to picket stores and bakeries demanding reduction" in price. The bakers asked a restraining order to make them stop, and the court refused to grant it. The right to picket is usually associated with labor disputes. Here it enters a new field, and the field is one in which it might prove useful. If a man can picket because he feels that he is underpaid ,hc can also do it if he believes that he is being overcharged. Community committees which are being organized all over the country to carry forward the campaign work under (ho goVernment-fosteted property renovation and Improvement program are being urged to encourage the group-project idea. Tills feature, the FHA feels, must not be neglectid if the program is to come'up tb> expectations. In these united efforts, the clvic- minded men and women of each edfn- munity arc expected to assume the leadership. They Will'find 'rdady to co-operate with them architects, bliifd- ers, city plumbers, -material men, feal estate operators and bankers. Behlntf the efforts of these the Federal Housing Administration will lertd 'the full support of its Public Relations iJiVis- ( n. equipped to provide (Publicity lAa- lerial.s for local drives, literature and booklets explaining and interpreting the provisions of the Act. An important factor to bo Considered by property owners is that groiap projects of the type suggested by ihe FHA might easily result in reduced cost to the individual If u blanket' contract is entered into with the building tradespeople and Material supplies. This idea has been Succ^ss- fully developed in the past in several communities. Remove (he "EyeXsores" Many ideas naturally -will suggest themselves to properly owners who have in mind group devel6pmerits. United efforts in arousing public Opinion for the removal of so-celled "e£e- sores" will often produce results that are of benefit to the entire community. t' f o ffltar, Jean and Powell May $&.

In March, l!)33, the department of abor, in co-operatiOn with loaders of organised, civic organizations arid others, formulated and launched a program. It provided: 1. Unemployment relief should be provided in some way by the federal government. 2. It issued Ihe warning that relief should not be used to supplement sweatshop wages so as to subsidize sweatshops. 3. It recommended that a large public works program be undertaken and that it include projects to stimulate the building industry. 4. It pointed out that the abolition of child labor was an immediate necessity for the country. 5. It suggested that public and semipublic buildings be used as educational and other centers for people out of work. G. It recommended a drastic limitation of hours of labor both now and in the future. 7. It urged belter wages and some machinery for fixing minimum wages at a level which should be at least a living wage. 8. it suggested the establishment of boards, either regional or iridustrial, which might hear evidence and testimony and make findings regarding these and other matters often in dispute between employer and employe. 9. It urged that the standards of purchase by the government be such as to require fair hours and wages by firms from which purchase is made and to raise the level of the working conditions of the people of Ihe United Slates. 10. And lastly, (he recommendation was made that underllnk all these proposals there .should be an agreement upon the necessity of recogni/- ing universally the right of workers lo organize of their own choosing. On Lafctir Day of 1934 practically all the recommendations made in March, 1933, are in effect. Asks Permanent KeforniM Many of them, however, are on a temporary emergency basis. Conscientious reconsideration of each of Ferguson Gives Post to Garner Committee Seat of Texas Goes to Vice President, Harmony Seen AUSTIN, Tex.— (JP)— James E. Fer- grsOn announced he would withdraw his claims to the office of democratic national committeeman from Texas if Vice President John N. Garner would accept the position. Ferguson, husband of Governor Mifialn A. Ferguson and administration spokesman, said he made the offer in interest of "party harmony." The offer was made in a telegram to Vice President Garner. Ferguson quoted Garner as replying that Garner did not see how he could "consistently decline to comply should the party call upon me to render the service," in view of honors that had been heaped upon Garner by Texas' democracy. "Needs Of Texas at this perilous time will be best obtained by fullest co-operation of state and national government," Ferguson Ftated. "I have decided Vice President Garner can render the state the greatest good as national democratic committeeman." Garner, it was reported, has been offered the support of James V. Allred, democratic nominee for governor, should he desire the office. Ferguson was elected national committeeman in March by tlie state executive committee. Allred is opposed to continuing him in the post. The Clown Joe E. Brown goes circus man for his fans in his .latest hit, "The Circus Clown," coining to the Saenger Sunday and Monday.

I expect to see the following made permanent: 1. Shorter hours throughout industry and trade. 2. Higher standards of wages, and particularly, a machinery for regulating the minimum levels of wages. 3. The permanent abolition of child labor. 4. The use of government purchasing power for supplies and equipment lo maintain industrial standards. 5. Boards for hearing locally and investigating, making findings and readjusting complaints of industrial practices. G.

Funeral and burial services will be held at Friendship cemetery Sunday afler- noon at 2 o'clock. industry, labor conditions and civic development We should, also develop something betler than the provisions we have made thus far for caring for the victims of the hazards and vicissitudes of life. An excellent method lies in the modofied application of the principles of insurance. Government Insurance I nthe heydey of the twenties and even in the first years of Ihe depression, il was popular lo scoff at unemployment insurance as u "dole"; but the significant fact now stands out that in no country which has experimented with unemployment insurance has the system broken down, even in the present world depression, and in no country has the public treasury been called upon for amounts to relieve distress even approximating our expenditure for relief. In this country, while we lag behind Europe, social insurance is not entirely unknown, bul it is apparent we do not begin to meet the needs of the situation. The most serious ha/.- ards arc- almost unprobided for. I regard our duty now to survey the entire field, and outline what can and should be done to give real and complete economi csccurity whether each section of the entire program is immediately feasible or not. If such a program as I have outlined can be carried through to a successful conclusion this will be a butler and more satisfying country in which to live, not only for this generation, but others to come. For the best inlerests of our pepole we can achieve the goal now generally recognized as desirable and well within the capacity and ingenuity of the citizens of this great republic. Softball Series Is Proposed Here 14 Teams May Enter Tournament to Start Next Week A softball tournament between the city's 14 teams was proposed Saturday by Oliver Williams, with the play-off to starl next week for the championship title of Hope. n An entrance fee of ?3 for each team and a list of players to participate in the play-off was suggested by Mr. Williams. The entrance fee for each team would be deposited, and after expenses are settled the balance would lie donated lo Ihe high school athletic fund. Mr. Williams suggested that each loam which wanted to enter the tournament, deposit with him the J3 and list of players by Monday noon in order that places may be drawn and the tournament started by Tuesday or Wednesday night. PARKER'S LEAD (Continued from Page One) the seventh district, who was trailing Wade Kitchens, Magnolia, 45 votes on the face of incomplete returns Friday night, said he planned to take no action until the official returns from Ashley and Calhoun counties are certified. Complete and official returns from Bradley and Union and unofficial returns from Ashley and Calhoun gave Parks 14.8.i2 and Kitchens 14,897. A recount will begin in Calhoun county Saturday morning, Parks said, and the Ashley county vote will be certofied Monday. He taid he expected the oiiciul count to show that he carried both Ashley and Calhoun counties. The Calhoun recount was obtained by Wallace Ritchie, candidate for state senate;. "I feel sure I am elected," declared Parks. Concerning the dispute over votes in Hempstead county, Parks said he would prefer lo bland by the official Pick Up Reported in Retail Trade Consumer Buying Gains for Final Week in August NEW VORK.-<WP)-Productive and distributive branches of trade, said the weekly Dun' and Bfadstreet trade review Friday, are looking forward to Labor Day as the turning point from a curtailment of production toward a period of recovery and expansion. "After its maintenance at an unexpectedly high level since June," asserted the survey, "the consumer buying impetus gained rapidly in the closing week in August. "As consumer buying turned pronouncedly stronger as month drew to a close, many retailers had the best week of the summer, and sales rose as much as 15 per cent above the level o flhe week preceding and were 8 to 12 per cent larger than in the comparative period of 1933. "In contrast to the encouraging progress being made in the distribution of merchandise, the rate of industrial activity continues to lag, and in many instances is becoming more dependent on federal or state expenditures.
