In Its closing hours, Congress voted n de/lclency appropriation ol $1,200,OCO for the Wage-Hour Division, ami It Is nil to be spent on lav/ enforcement — the division now finding Itself with' 18,000 unanswered complaints of violations on its hands. With this money, Andrews will lie able to Increase his force of Inspectors to 500 and his litigation force to 40 lawyers. But one trouble Is that an Inspector In this kind ot work Isn't much good until he has had some training, nnd Andrews Is going to have to start Ms own schools lo apply tlie training. •'OOrt TRAINING CKNTKKS There will bo four of them—In New Ycrk, Chicago, Snn Francisco, and Atlanta—nnd they'll be in op- ration by the first of September, few inspectors will spend about 0 days on their scholing—listen- ng to lectures and getting general nstructlons, with older Inspectors as the teachers—before they go KIDNEY TROUBLE Slop Getting Up Nights To harmlessly flush poisons nnd Mid from kidneys nnd relieve Irritations of bladder so that you can slop "getting up nights" gel n 35 cent package of Gold 'Medal Haiir- lein Oil Capsules and take us rti- rcclcd.

Before going to school, most of tlie Inspectors will lie sent out for llcfd work In company with older Inspectors, so that they can get a Ihst-hand glimpse of the Job before they start .studying about It. It is no secret that the Wage- Hour Division feels mightily relieved over passage of the deficiency appropriation. It looked, for a time, as II the money would be denied, and olllcers of the division predicted that the entire law would collapse of Its own. weight If the money were not forthcoming. The compliance record lias hot been good so far, aiid they were afraid that If It got Jiiiich worse nl! chance of ever enforcing the law would be gone, I.ABOK FAILS A FlilENI) Tlie A.

Some time ago both organizations' went on record In favor of continuance of Its iamous investigation Into Ihe activities of the Associated Fann- ers In California. 13ut neither oul- jt did anything In particular to help the committee when help was needed. That was in the closing days 'of he session, when the Schwcllcn- bacli resolution to extend the com- iilttce's life wns about to come up for action. The resolution lay In the Scn- itc's audit and control subcom- nlttce, headed by Senator Byrnes, who was not entirely sold on the proposition.

Lewis made his fathohs "evil old man" outburst at Gainer, and almost jarred Byrnes Into killing the thing altogether, A week later, Byrnes' committee brought the bill lo "the floor. The fate the bill would meet was very much in doubt, nnd Schwellenbach contacted A. P. of L. nnd c I o leaders and told thorn that now was the time to speak up If they wanted the LaFolletle Investigation to continue. Neither organization bothered to say cue word about It. Tlie C. I. O. Is In so uad around the Senate that Its silence didn't hurt fnuch but tlie A. P. of L. carries a lot of weight. The bill finally got through, but the labor organizations weren't the ones who did the pushing. One thing that did help was Sen- aior Cotton Ed Smith's Impassioned speech against the bill. Missouri's Senator Clark announced tliat he had originally'been pretty doubtful aboxa the bill, bsit that after hearing Smith speak against it lie was convinced that !ic ought to vo(e Tor it.
