PAGE SIX BLYTHEVILLE. (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Buck Up President Determined To See Proposal Adopted By Congress PY R'ODNEY DUTCHKR Cooflfr News Washington Correspond cut WASHINGTON. Nov. 10.—Higher staecs for the most exploited, poorly paid classes of labor, shorter hours which would spread work In many Industries, and control over child labor—these are objectives in perhaps the administration's most important, proposal to the special session ot Congress. Everyone professes to agree with the objectives. But nearly everyone objects to any specific method of attaining them which is proposed by anyone else. At the iast session the Senate macerated and passed a once-am- biMotis administration wage-hour bill. The House labor committee made further changes and ap- P"5vpd this measure. Then a combination of Republicans and Southern Democrats on the rules committee stifled it. House leaders promised to move to get. the, bill onto the floor al the next, session as promptly as possible. That's the way it stands now, except that In intervening months a strong, well-financed propaganda campaign hns been organized against the bill. The administration takes the atUtude that most of the current criticism is designed not to improve the bill, but to kill it. Honest Doubl There The House.bill provides for a la- . hor standards board which would ^Autumn Sport ItOKl'/.ONTM 1 Pidurod is in the game of 811 it cither or thrown. 1:1 c; m us o! auHs, 14 To si01) 1C Back. 17 Falsehood. 18 Cruder. iy Heady. 20 Golf player attendants. 22 Believer in animism. 20 Breeding place. 29 Overpowering fright. 33 Banal. 34 Kxcl;im;>tior\. 35 Impetuous. 3C Insurgent. 37 Coverage, 39 Period. 40 Twenty-four hours (p!.). « Tcu.

The librarian must, have had four years college work and one year experience In a library. Tiie law, passed at, the recent, term o! !w!s- lature, suggests that the library" be housed at 'the court house.

THURSDAY, NOVEBMER 11, 1fl.?7 week and minimum wages not higher than 40 cents an hour. These standards ivould be set only for Industries in interstate commerce (with numerous exceptions), industry by Industry, and theoretically would be delayed in application where threat of harmful ellrcU existed. One of the big surface issues is the question whether it is more dangerous to have a board with discretionary, arbitrary powers or flat legally-set wage and hour stan- .dards which would be Inflexible. ;Such a board, it is charged, might jbe harsh and dangerous. Such an ,'infle.xible standard, it is answered, ";would surely be harsh and danger- f :• Much honest doubt exists as to the effect of a wage-hour law on industry, although the pending bill decrees tfiat-the board find out in advance of each order. Some agree —and some do not agree—with Roosevelt that resultant increased purchasing power will lead to in- n'-e<*sed sales volume which "ought .'to'.lesseh the cost of production so that even a considerable increase in labor costs can be absorbed without imposing higher prices on customers." • Nothing Is Certain If the administration continues to stand on the House Mil, Its forces will have to oet 2)8 members' signatures to discharge the measure from the Rules committee, or sony of'.the Democratic and-or Hepubli can Rules members must cave in. None o I these possibilities is a cer- laiiity and it isn't at all sure that the House measure could pass the House without emasculating amendments. Roosevelt has little organized, ar ticulate support for this bill. Opposed to it are th e southern members almost to a man, manufacturers' associations, farm organization lobbyists and the more conservative groups in the A. P. of L. The c. I O. appears to be for-the bill, but has given it no effective support Plenty of amendments and various substitutes are being urged, although not by the administration Too High, Too Low Senator George Berry of Tennessee, the millionaire labor leader offers one of the substitutes, which is said to be backed by such A. P of L. conservatives as Vice President Bi!l Hutcheson of the Carpenters' Union. Berry's plan calls for a fiat 40-hour maximum week and n minimum wage of 30 cents an hour in all interstate industries Chief objection raised to this and similar proposals is that the Si a week. minimum wage standard would be regarded as too low ii norliiem'.industrial areas and toe high under certain conditions in some southern areas. ; Without the possibility of varia tion, it is contended, an inflexibl standard can't be imposed withou forcing many persons out of em ployment. Furthermore, Berry's bi provides for enforcement by the Department of Justice, whereas experience shows the need of some special body to administer, Investigate and at least recommend prosecution. The administration won't lake Berry's bill if it can help Itself. National Education Week Being- Observed With Special Programs National Forest gnme preserve In North Carolina and Tennessee.
