THURSDAY. AUGUST'17, 1933 (ARK.) COUftffiR NKW8 President Gets Taste of Camp Life j MM. Howard Proctor Auxiliary Viee-Pretident Fxonomist Who Quit in N. R. A.'s First Big Rowj Fears for Consumers. ^ * BY RODNEV nllTOIIKK t.'ourirr Ne»-s Wa'Wnnton Correspondent WASHINGTON.— 'Itic consumer was geltim a splendid break from the NHA for awhile. Bui it, didn't last. Dr. William F. Ogburn, one of the world's outstanding authorities en where we are, how we got here and where we're going as the result of social end economic forces, was director lor the Consumers' Alvlsory Board. He ran In'.o a combination of indifference, feminine Jitters and intrigue. Now he lias quit, leaving behind him: A recommendation ol' policies and • program for the C. A. B. which he Insists are necersary if the consumers are nil lo lose their shirts. • Many angry economists, sociologists and statisticians—Ogburn is prominent in each of those groups —who are either working here in the New Deal or watching it closely. * * * Transfer Ordered Ogburn had first been ordered transferred to another agency, but his prestige was so great that hU professional brethren raised a howl. Both Secretary of Commerce Ro'jyr end Administrator Johnson, heads of NRA. ouickly nlled him in and told him to stay, ihal things would be "fixed up." But Ogburn hnd a program for protecting consumers in the period of orice increases; he wanted 127 - OOO.OW consumers to know what was happening to t'lirn. He had been working Ihis oul with hi' staff wilhoiit any help or Hindrance from Mrs. Mary Rumsey. chairman of c. A. B. and a millionaires;, until one day he took a. trip to Chi- cago.~Mr.s. Rumsey. in his absence and for reasons unknown, persuaded Johnson lo lUvi. Ogburn transferred to the government's new Central Statistical Board. Ogburn Wouldn't Stay Jolmson told Ogtmrn ho had been too bx:sv with industry and labor to pay attention to t'^e consumers' ' end of his show. An old army man. ^ he had .simply taken the word and the 1 side of-jO'ibum's liluhr superior. Now he thought Ogburn ought lo stay. Ogburn. feelin<z thai proper consumer representation in NRA depended on^a reorganization and a change of attitude amontr its officials, nevertheless resigned. Johnson is' now bein» ur?- ed to give him full iwwer and call him back. Consumers, without organization or industrial wealth to support tliem, need more support than any ot>er 'group, Ogburn says. . lie and his associates made reports 'from the consumer standpoint concerning the steel and oil codes, but' they appeared to receivi little ntlrntion. Price Chfck Vceded The new economic system with its price-fixing features and Us apparent monopolistic tendencies produces a situation in'Khlch the only automatic check on prices will be recurring brstness depressions. Ogburn says. Hence there must be statistics which will index price: and purchasing power, so that the two may balance. The lack of such balance has given NRA more nightmares than any other single factor The consumers' complaints should be competently studied, Ogburn says, and the whole NRA stafT should be impressed by the need of giving some attention to the consumer's interests. Ogburn. 47. has taught economic-: and sociology at Princeton. Columbia and Chicago Universitias. Hf has been president of both tr.e American Sociological Society and the American Statistical Association. He was with the War Labor Board, conducting hearings on strike situations and then becoming its statistical-economic expert after nn elaborate ccst of living study. He directed Hoover's Committee on Social Ttenis. supervising its monumental report (Copyright, 1933,'NEA Service.
