P«g* six To Continue to Enforce Labor Law Washington, Nov. 11 — <ff>) — DC•pile the 'administration's pledge UMCek repeal of the Tail-Hartley labor law, its chief agent, Robert *?• Denham, intends to follow a "business as usual" policy. ttenham said in an interview today he will keep on administering! the Republican-sponsored labor law "as if nothing had happened," go 'long as it is on the books. He has some ideas.' of his own for; changing it, .but "nobody has asked me for any so far." A number of'-labor leaders have suggested ; privately, since President Truman'g-iupset; election victory that;: Denham either' should jesipp or be ousted in a .revision of the law s ierms. • l?ut to Questions about his future, the 63-year-old general cotin scl of the National Labor Rcla Wns board responded: "I am -still general counsel and 1 will be until the law is changed Nobody has asked me for my resignation yet," he laughed. As general counsel at a $12 000 annual salary, Denham has a four year term dating from his Julv. 15(17, Senate confirmation to thc post. He..rccognlEes, however, that bis tenure can be changed by amending * the law. A' onetime Texas cowhand with a colorful; career, Denham was an NpHB trial examiner when Mr. Truman r.rappointed him general CpuhSel after Congress enacted the TafWfarlley law over the presidential veto.

Osborne of the University of Arkansas music department. The commission will accept proposed lyrics so long as they are postmarked not later than Dec. 31, 1948—and you may submit as many as you wish They must, of course, fit to the tune.

"" Changes Are Recommended by Hoover Washington, Nov. 11 —f/P)—For- mer President Herbert Hoover to day urged a "strengthened" labor on?nn tmcnt . and thc removal of 2.0,000 postmasterships from poli tics. He also advocated the creation of a better paid career service in government. Hoover spoke as chairman of thc IZmember bi-partisan commission on organization of the executive branch. He, gave reporters several tentative findings of the commis sion s task forces" on streamlining the federal establishment. He predicted the: final recom mendations; if adopted after being presented to Congress in January will save "a good million dollars" when placed in operation for "say five years." On the question of rebuilding the Labor Department, stripped of many functions by the Republican- controlled 80th Congress, the for mer Republican president said: "The thinkng is to strengthen the Labor Department. "We're not going to tear anything put of it, as some people have thought." : The commission has reached tentative but unanimous conclu- S1 . on i s °» th ree of its 24 fields of study, Hoover said. He named them as: ; •....• 1. Creation;of a "service" agent to be a presidential staff. It would embrace ..the budgetmaking activ- ties,, supply 'procurement, account ing and, other functions now per formed by ; various agencies which provides; services for the rest of the government. 2. Organize-a career service to :ut the "tremendous turnover" of ,-ivil- servants. Pay increases for employes . above (he $5,000-a-year level should granted. The Civil Ser vice Commission should be stripped of its labor recruiting function, and this task should be handed back to ;ne various agencies. 3. Re-organize the postoffice de partment to cut its deficit by ner haps $200,000,000 to $3,000000 a year. This would involve setting it up. as a "revolving fund" agency- one which sells a product and uses fie money to meet its expenses— instead of an agency wholly de pendent on appropriations "even for the purshase of bicycles." _ These specific postal proposals have'received informal commission approval. Hoover said: Giving the post office the "flexibility of a modern business organization" and applying to it in part the laws governing government corporations. Ltting the postoffice set up its own cost accounting system to remedy the. eight-month lag in accounting which now prevails with the general accounting office doing the .. bookkeeping.

State Lovett said yesterday he the though the effort failed. On the other hand there would bo tile clanger that the move would be interpreted as appeasement—a term which forever will be associated with British Prime Minister Chamberlain's efforts to placate Hitler.

This would involve abolishing Senate confirmation for all postal officials except the poctmas- ter general and a No. 2 officer, the "director of posts." The latter would replace the present array of assistant postmasters general. Decentralizing the service into a dozen regional districts under regional directors appointed by thc postmaster general. Simplifying the 900 pages of postal laws and regulations which enmesh every postal employe, Hoover said, " in a mass of red tape." The problem of ]raising postal rates on the moiicy-losing mail services is one for Congress to answer, he said, but the commission would like to see some of the minor services paying their own way. The former president declared he "personally" thinks there will have to be "one or two new departments' of cabinet. r.aj^Jii. the government.

A prime question here, he stated, is whether 'there should be limitations on the fields of taxation in which the federal government should operate, leaving the rest exclusively to states and"local I governments. | The commission will have all its (task force reports in hand within ,the next 15 days. Hoover reported, Thc commission is sitting in full session three days a week and spending the rest of thc time reading the 2,000,000 words of regulations and reports which must bo read to complete the recommendations.
