Seek Exemptions ROCK, April 25. (UP)— Charging that small canneries and processing plants for agricultural products in the truck-growing sections of Arkansas are unable to comply with the wnges and hours act and continue to operate, farmers in several parts of the state are holding protest meetings and assembling data to be presented to their representatives in Congress iri' 4 *)! effort to obtain exemptions fiom v provlsions of the law. "The most recent of these conferences, w'as held;-al-,;Fayelleville Ijjr "a' group off 'so farmers, can^ ners, Farm Bureau officials, and representatives of civic organizations who were urged to project themselves into the movement. They conferred with Wilbur M. Evans, regional director of the wages and hours act, who, as a representative of the united States Department, of Labor, is attempting to determine whether small agricultural processing plants operating in the center of regions growing perishable commodities should be exempt from the act's regulatibs. Similar meetings have been held at Little Rock and other, points with representatives of farm organizations and the canning Industry offering testimony. According to'Waldo Frnzier, executive secretary of the Arkansas Pann Bureau Federation, who Is one of the leaders in the movement to hnve the present act amended to provide exemptions, the principal point of contention is the definition of the term "area of production." .. Under terms of the act. the processing plants located in the "area of production" -of a commodity presumably were exempt. Frailer said. He charged, however, Ihat when admlnlslrators of lhe act defined the production area they "disregarded geographic location" nnd ruled that any plant of this nature employing seven or more persons was considered outside of the area and, therefore, was subject to provisions of the act.
