WA&HBUBN- ft ft ft ft ft ft PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT, in a speech on the condition of 1 the republic, told us Sunday night that while administration critics were making capital out of the fact that the British empire is reducing taxes'this year, these same critics overlook the fact that the British have been a lonj? time in reaching that happy state—and the president concluded by reminding his listeners that many points in America's program today closely resemble those which a few years ago paved the way for Britain's recovery. " As Ilia administration gathers age Mr. Roosevelt grows in the confidence 01 a pc>plc who believe he truly rep- losents the substantial safety of niid- dlc-of-thc-roml politics. He is friendly to labor—but he is not labor-dominated.

'. unions which years broke away several Urge 30-Hour Week SAN, FRANCISCO, Calif.~(/P)- The American Federation of Labor, Ihrough its executive committee, called Sunday for a "major adjustment" in thc nation's economic organization nnd nn increased tempo by business that would "use thc capacity of our industries." In iUs report on the year's activities to the unnuiil convention of the federation, the council also urged that NRA codes be further amended to increase employment and boost wages. A broad legislative program was proposed, including a 30-hour week, minimum wage laws, old age security and ratification of the constitutional amendment to outlaw child labor. The council said organized labor must bo "forever opposed to "currency inflation as the method of recovery" and it viewed the increased national debt with "alarm and with misgiving." Saying that thc year's progress toward recovery fell "far short of what We hud hoped" and that "ten millions urc without jobs," the report give a view of what organized'labor believes necessary: ''We need a new vision of American living standards and a plan for growth of consuming power which would lift every American worker to a health and efficiency level and millions to u comfort level of living- ''The demand for our products ci/uld then reach thc point where new factories could be built to manufacture consumer goods, creating new jobs in thc consumer industries and using thc excess capacity of our heavy industries to build the necessary equipment. "We are suffering now from a 15- ycur iihortagc of consumini*; power. We cannot solve thc unemployment problem by going back to 1929, for t-ven then there was a shortage. We must plan for a future when wealth produced by our industries will be equitably distributed and will create it new standard of living. We must have a living slundarTJ which will use thc capacity of our industries nnd the capacity <;i our man power." The council said "experience during the past year has proved that business men when left to their own device;: lake no measures to put thy unemployed to work on u nationwide scalv."

Industrial Truce Proposed by F. 0, The President Speaks to Nation on Radio Sunday Night WASHIGNTON. — (ff>) - President Roosevelt Sunday night »ppealed for an armistice in the year's recurring conflicts between capital and labdr while the second, and still experimental, phase of NRA produces legislation permanently safeguarding thc rights of each. The president again carried thc accomplishments and purposes of the new deal directly to the. people in aji address broadcast to a,H'sections of thje nation asking for patriotic and whole hearted co-operation. ;, The truce in industrial ^warfare, he" said, is to be accompanied, .within th| next month, by conferences with employers and the spokesmen of organized labor, while a "full and fair" trial is given to means already provided for adjusting such disputes. "Accordingly," he said. "I propose to confer within the coming month with small groups of those truly representative of large employers of labor and of large groups of organized labor, in order to seek their co-operation in establishing what 1 may describe as a specific trial period of industrial peace. "From those willing to join in establishing this hoped for period of peace, 1 shall seek assurances of the making and maintenance of agreements, which can be mutually relied upon, under which wages, hours and working conditions may be determined and any later adjustments shall be made either by agreement or in case of disagreement, throughout mediation or arbitration of state or federal agencies. "I shall not ask cither employers or employees permanently to lay alsdt* Ihe weapons common to industrial war. But I shall ask both groups to ;ive a fair trial to peaceful methods of adjusting their conflicts of opinion and interest, nnd to experiment for a reasonable* time with measures suit- tuhle to civilize our industrial civilization." The president asserted that he counted, in tho fuluro as in the past, upon Iho "driving power" of individual initiative and fair private profit. He also advanced the view that "private enterprise in times such as these cannot be left without assistance and without reasonable safeguards lest it destroy not only itself but also our processes of civili/ation." He eluded critics just emerging "from stornv cellars" and forgetting "there ever was n storm," who con- Cards Cop Flag; to Open Series Play 12:30 Wednesday First 2 Games at Detroit —3 at St. Louis, Beginning Friday A STIRRING FINISH St. Louis and Dean Brothers Smash Through to National Pennant By the Associated Press The first two World Series games will be played at Detroit Wednesday and Thursday ;thc next three at St. Louis F*-rh.v, Saturday and Sunday— and (' „ Vjjinder, if necessary, at Octroi ' " ...

LOUIS, Mo.—(/5P)-Basebali;s most amazing pennant rush since the campaign of George Stallings and his "miracle men" of Boston ended in glorious triumph Sunday as the St. Louis Cardinals nailed thc National League flag to their masthead with a D-to-Q victory over the Cincinnati Reds. The stirring drive, started on the morning of September 7 when the Cardinals trailed the then formidable looking New York Giants by sevan games, had a double-barreled finish as thc Brooklyn Dodgers beat the Giants, 8 to 5, just as the great Dizzy. Dean was settling it all beyond a doubt in the ninht inning of hisgreat hurling performance against- 'the lowly- but bristling Reds. If a showman had arranged Tt™ he couldn't have staged a more dramatic finish, than that of Sunday. Given his wide lead, the great Dizzy was pitching his heart out at the start of thc ninth for his seventh shut-out oi the year. As Pool singled, Schul- morich- doubled and Comorosky walked to fill the bases with none out, his dream of becoming the shoutout king of the major leagues faded. Dizzy Does His Stuff Then came the final flash from thc Brooklyn-Giant game. The Dodgers hart won; thc pennant belonged to the Cardinals for sure. Grinning in that cocksure way of his, Dizzy rose to thc heights. He struck out Clyde Manion and Ted Petoskey, a pich- hitter for Frey, and then pumped a fast one down the middle to Spark Adams, who fouled out to Bill DeLancey. As thc ball stuck in DeLancey's glove, Dizzy ran over to his battery- mate, snatched the ball and Just barely succeeded in reaching the clougmit before thc frenzied fans surged over the diamond, cheering him for his 30th victory of thc season niifl the first pennant since 1931. A crowd of S5.274 pennant-fevered spectators watched thc Cirdinal cavort and Dizzy turn in his masterpiece today. As the eccentric right- hander held thc Reds to seven hits- all coming in separate innings except the two bunched blows in the ninth, the Cardinals turned loose devastating power to crush the enemy. Every pleayer except Ducky Mcd- wiek had a hand in thc 14-hit attack against the three Red hurlcrs Cy Johnson, Benny Frey and Allyn Sl'out. Two of the blows were homers, one by DeLanccy in thc fifth and the other by Rip Collins, who got his 35th circuit blow and his 200th hit oi Brothers--They Leap to Fame "Diwy" IX'an, left, :md 1'nul Denn "Dizzy" shows Paul huxv it's dene, as the elder Dean poses here with the younger. They form the greatest brother act in baseball history. Before the 1934 season opened, "Dizzy" annouaiced that they would win 45 games for the cards. They passed that mark and, just to make it better, Paul hurled a no-hit, no-run game against Brooklyn. "Dizzy" won 30.games* and Paul 19, for a total of 49—four more than they guaranteed! Ft.

"I guess the best team won. I hone's I'm pulling '.he Cards beat Detroit. [cr them." He spoke in a dejected mumble. The words came haltingly. A reporter 'ried to feed the interview by suggesting that he give a farewell message to the fans. "Nope," he s;ud. His lips tightened. "Yen can thank them if you want- not me. When I .stepped out there in the tenth inning with the flag moficy gene and everything lost they booed me. I thought I was in St. Louis." !.'emeone mentioned Brooklyn. Bill's eyes mirrored his anger. ''You can say this k>r he said. ''if Stengel'*, team had played as hard all year as it did the hist two days, jt would not bu hi sixth place." In the Dodger clubhouse the din was deafening. Manager Casey Stengel, clad in a bath towel draped diaper- fashion about his hips, was dclivcr- inR thc general's farewell tu his troops. His arms threshed widely. "Farewell, my bomiy men. Some of you are off to maim thc gentle rabbit. Some of you will shoot the carefree deer. I bid you all God-speed, my little Uimby-pies. my brave young t-oldats Go with Casey's blessing upon your sweet heads." Thc erstwhile Kansas City steam fitter paused for breath. A reporter interrupted to translate Terry s remarks. Stengel grinned. (Continued on Page Three) According to Frank H. Stanley, county agent, Hempstead county has been given a cattle-purchasing quota of 845 head, which is not sufficient to take care of the needs. , "In thc county we have 15,000 bend of cattle listed by 945 producers and can buy cattle to the amount of $10,140, which may mean one cow each for all producers who have listed cattle for sale," Mr. Stanley said. An effort Ls being made to Ret Ihe quota raised so it will be of some help to cattle producers. As the program stands now we can allow each producer to sell but one cow. Cards will be sent to each producer telling him where, when nncl how many cows to deliver. A schedule of purchasing dates will be listed later. 90 MiflionlViH Vote in Russia Soviet Electorate Is Expanded by 10 Million This Fall MOSCOW, Russia—(/}'•--Ninety mil- ion Russian voters, 10,0(10,000 more than there were three years ago, will jarticipate in Soviet general elections starting November 10 to elect delo- ;ates to the seventh Ail-Union Soviet Congress.
