B y PAUL HAIIKISON NEA Servii-e Staff Correspondent NFW YORK, Jan. 10.- -Tlie Blue Eagle i- 1 - strutting pretty proudly on ihe" sldcviolks of New York. He hns heard Grover A. Whalen declare in ringing tonr-j [Tint "the work of the NHA here lias be-on ;i smashing sncuess." | Of course Mr. Whalen was until recently the local NRA administrator, arid may be prejudiced. Cut Mr. Whalen also has figures. Tf.c figures show that more limn 500,000 persons have been [>ut back into business and Industry, a number representing about half il>2 city's unemployed only a few month. 1 ; aso. Wholesale trade Is approximately 18 per cera above the volume cl lasl year, and retail trade has improved nearly 25 per- cent. Factories have hired 20 per cent more workers, and manufacturing payrolls have increased 13 per cent. Thousands Hack at Work In the retail field, more than 90 .per cent of the businesses have signed the president's re-employ mem agreement, 33,100 new jobs have been created, and retail store payrolls have jumped $43.470.000 a year. Thirty ?:ouwind New Yorkers are working in reforestation camps, and about 150.000 are on the payrolls of t!:e Civil Works Administration. New York likes the NRA very much indeed. Consequently, per- naps, it also has demonstrated idolatry for Gen. Hugh Johnson, who lias not spoken quite so bluntly hereabout as he has In feme other sections of the country. Besides, New York is very remote from the centers of some of thr- more critical problems. All's Quiet in N. y. Wheat is just something i.':a; one buys in one form or another at the bakers'- at about the .same old price. Meat is a commodity which appears with dependable regularity in refrigerator cars. Steel is something one bets on ::i t'-e stock market. And so on. Here's an example which probably is true of hundreds of New York concerns: "In the slates where our raw materials cotne from, and where nur factories are located," said a manufacturer, "we fought the'NRA tooth and nail. We've been scrapping in Washington, too. But all's quiet in our New York business office, where we had to put on a lot more employes." While many NRA groups are l>eing dissolved into regional authorities, officials here believe that this one must continue essentially a> before. Mitt ID CUT UE TO GET flPTl County Agent' Ci'it?.

Thronjrs Seek Advice From the first "week in August when the Blue Eagle went into notion here, the bureau of interpretation functioned more as an oducotional and diolomntic service !>•••- ns n lesia! office. Employers demanded rulings on scores of specific applications of t Vl ? XRA. And thousands o' unem- rjloved men and women, with even rmter notioas of what it was all about, romped in with the idea t>"\t the NRA was created especially to restore their old jobs. Not just anv jobs, but the places which (!•-• la^t held. Nobody knows how this thouqht became so prevalent, but disillu- r.ionment brought grumbling. The division of law has receiver! and resconrled to M.OOO innuir- ies. The complaint division, which opened its dears on the first day to 150 clamoring clients, has re- o»h-M several thousand charges ol evns'.on every month, nnrt had ei»ht clerks in its file room who rtirl nothin" hut move the incoming and outgoing reports.
