WARD & SON The Leading Druggist W. 2nd We Deliver Phone 62 ---, ^ o _,, nw*tiv j. t;nt:i ji the government accepts a plan outlined by Guy Holcomb, head of the Small Business Section of the Anti- Trust Division of the Department of Justice. In a memorandum to Assistant Attorney General Thurman Arnold, Holcomb says he is convinced that the primary need of small business is an independent governmental agency with authority to act swiftly on specific complaints and problems. It might be called the Office of Small Business Problems. It would serve as a forum where complaints could be heard and as an independent advocate of the cause of small business. More important, it would act as a trouble-shooter to represent small business and get action, and it would have to be clothed with ample power. The President would probably have full authority to 'appoint such a board, but Holcomb thinks it would have even more force if congress enacted a law creating it. The membership would be composed of small business men with a few lawyers to give legal advice. More than 'half the complaints from small business men received by Holcomb were drafted after they had failed to get relief from other departments of the government. He. found small business men as a whole were distrustful of the Office of Production Management. The leading figures on OPM were big business dollar-a- year men, corporation attorneys, labor leaders and professional economists. Evidence Piles Up Time after time small business men complained to Holcomb that they saw their big competitors securing priority material after trips to Washington. Holcomb cited a case where a Michigan boiler manufacturer said he was the lowest bidder for installation at an Oklahoma airport, but the award was made to a company bidding ?1700 higher. Holcomb contacted the officials in charge and.the Michigan man finally got the contract. A small but well known manufacturer of outboard motors complained that he was about to close his plant because of priority shut-down on materials, while only 16 miles away his largest competitor was operating full swing on government and civilian contracts. Holcomb has tackled this pro- ble and hopes for results. L. M. Evans, presdient of Small Business of America, Inc., from his office in Cleveland, has written President Roosevelt complaining that small business men arc under a siege of economic boycott as strangling as the tightest military blockade. He asserts thousands of small business men who with their employes constitute the largest taxpaying group in every city and state, are facing ruin. Says Evans: "This pending calamity must be laid at the door of tho administrators of national defense who havve flagrantly discriminated against small business. Big business has received every consideration, small business none. Perhaps we should have expected this, for the men who head the defense administration are nearly all from big business." As Senators Sec It Congress is getting restive about this problem. Senators are not convinced that the President's naming of Floyd Odium as director of OPM's division of contract distribution is a solution. Senator Hatch of New Mexico, head of a special committee to investigate defense program contracts, is alarmed lest America have the experience of Britain, where 20,000 manufacturing plants were shut down almost overnight in the changeover from peace to a war economy. According to Odium's own estimate, 2 per cent of the supply of strategic naterials would enable 30,000 to 45,000 small metal-working U. S. plants to continue during the first half of 1942. Senator O'Mahoney of Wyoming, complaining that the little fellows are ed for their home in Indianapolis Monin the city. being kicked around from pillar to post, has introduced a bill to help small business. Under it, any persons whose business operations are adversely affected by assignment of priority in any materials used in his business shall be afforded a chance to present his views, to an agency designated by the President. If he shows that his business operations will be hurt by a shortage of materials, or that his inability to continue business will result in unemployment for his employes, the agency shall so report to the President, and he shall allocate to the complainant such amounts of mate- ial as in his judgment will be necessary to prevent hardship to the business man, his employes or his customers. The Woman of the Month Mrs. Herrick Receives New Recognition for Service By ADELAIDE KBRR AP Feature Service Writer Mrs. Elinore Herrick is proof that n woman can handle one of tho toughest jobs in a man's World, As regional director of the National Labor Relations Board's second district since 1935, she has mediated heated and historic battles between capital and labor. And she still is in the middle. In recognition of her work, the American Woman's Association has just bestowed on her its 15th annual Award for Eminent Achievement. She is my nomination for Woman of the Month. Mrs. Herrick is a big, dark-haired, clary-eyed woman with a "million-dollar smile" and a direct and friendly manner. She says being a woman has been an advantage instead of a hindrance in her job. "People arc less apt to become abusive in the presence of a woman," she says. "And both unions and employers will take a lot of criticism from me that they won't take from men. Besides, a. woman has to handle people all her life and she understands what's going on in other people's minds." . . Another of Mrs. Herrick's advantages is that for six years she was a factory worker herself. The district she directs •cimprises rarts of New York, Connecticut and New Jersey and is one of the.most important of the 22, It holds almost one- 'ifth of the nation's industrial establishments, many of which are now working for defense, . 1 Some of the toughest union men and company heads have, met in Mrs. Herrick's Wall Street skyscraper office, while she sat as aribtrator in their disputes, seeking a settlement satisfactory to both. On those •. occasions she works hard for peace, but if she .hinks' either labor or capital is clocking the road to it, she sails into he fray and doesn't mince words. When' Mrs. Herrick says, "The hell you will!" they all stop, look and listen. One of her jobs considered most valuable to industrial peace is settlement of the Bethlehem -Steel Co. strike in May, 1941', when in her office Bethlehem signed its first union contract. As far. as collective, bargaining is concerned, Mrs. Herrick says: "We are still far from where we ought to be. What we should develop toward is industry-wide bargaining with workers instead of bargaining between one Star ana Son and i-UsheS home attet work to prepare the fdod" herself. « CI ^. e * «£"'•'• »o problem to Mrt.

The lungs of the average man c<>n>" tain about five quarts of air, and you can estimate for yourself how much of it is hot. company and its workers. That would give greater stability to labor relations and would promote more equitable labor conditions." Mrs. Herrick was born in New York, reared in New England and studied at Barnard College (Columbia). She was married at 21 and now has two grown sons. In her late twenties she worked as a spooler and throwster in the Buffalo plant of the duPont .Rayon Co. and later as production manager i°oo its Old Hickor y' Tenn., mill. In 1927 she quit to study economics and labor relations at Antioch College and in 1929 received her degree. In the next few years she served as executive secretary for the Consumers' League, chairman of an NRA city mediation board and executive vice chairman of the old National' Labor Board. She came to her present job in '35. -. With her two sons she lives in a roomy apartment in a remodelled factory in West 13th street, where Mrs Herrick does all the cooking and housekeeping. She says she is a "persnickety New England housekeeper" and maids annoy her. For fun she plays the piano (goes through three hymn books in one evening), and tennis (she can still lick her sons' on the court). She loves to give parties WHO WANTS A SLIGHTLY - USED SPINET PIANO?
