FRIDAY, JULY 21, 194-1 Slate To Have 3 More On WLB Arkansas Formerly ,('.. Had Only One Member % On Regional Board LITTLE noCK, July 21. (UP) — Three additional Arkansivns arc to be added to the regional War Labor Board at Kansas City. Congressman Crooks Hays of Little Rock, in announcing the additions, says Hie new members will represent industry, labor and the public. • A move to expand Arkansas' representation on the Kansas City board was begun several weeks ago after efforts to transfer Arkansas to jurisdiction of the regional WLB Ixrard at Dallas, Texas, fallen. Fred J. Vc-nner, chairman of the manufacturing committee of the Greater Little Rock Chambsr of Commerce, says the state previously had only one representative on the '24-member Kansas City board, Vcnncr explains that most of Arkansas' manufacturing competition came from Tennessee, Mississippi, Texas and other southern states and that business of this stale could not compete if forced to pay wages comparable to northern scales, unless salaries in other southern areas were increased. Venner says Arkansas had to obtain additional representatives on tlie Kansas City board or be transferred to the Dallas or New Orleans district to prevent its industries from being endangered.

Read Courier News "Want'-'Adz. 1 - HY PETER EDSON . Courier News Washington Correspondent The peculiar embarrassment of the Democratic party chieftains In trying to decide on a vice presidential candidate to rim beside Franklin Delano Roosevelt Is that they arc not trying to put the fing- «f OK the best liiau to run, but on Ihe man who will be the least objectionable. Everyone suggested for (lie job thus far is able enough In his own sivcet way, but Die catch is that one and all have political b. o. to some sensitive noses. Merits and demerits of Henry Wallace are so well known as to I'cqlre no detailed rehashing here. Admittedly brilliant and : having to his credit many practical achievements that have 'contributed richly to Improving American life, he is still branded as a visionary. c The mere thought of his ever reaching the White House on a fluke starts many people screaming. Snm Rayburii of Texns has made an excellent speaker of the House | of Representatives, respected by ' both Republican opponents and Democratic followers. But becomes from tlie less-populous south and the belief that ' northerners' won't vote for southerners in high office is still hanging around as a hoodoo of political folklore that goes back to the time of .Andrew Johnson, even though Cactus Jac Garner did break tlie spell In 1932. Furthermore, Rayunrn is not widely known In the north and .west and would have to sell himself to the voters. UYHNES? HE'D HAVE TO SKU; HIMSELF,'TOO ' From his position as director of the Office of War Mobilization and "assistant president,". James P. Byrnes of South Carolina would seem to be "a natural choice. He has behind him ; a distinguished record as a senator and a short record -is Supreme Court justice. .But Byrnes as boss of the war agencies has played a behind-the- scenes role, dodging the Ifmelfght as much as possible. He, even more than Raybnrn, would have to be sold to the voters. And like Rayburn, he is from the south. There is considerable northern enthusiasm for Sen. Harry 'Flood Byrd of Virginia. But lie is no favorite of the While House. Roose- j veil, in fact, had so much legisla- | live opposition from carrier that it I is doubtful if the President would | welcome any southern conservative SILBERXAGKL A CO., INC. Little Knck. Ark.
