CHICAGO <UX) — Th» Cherry sisters of Addle and Elfie, whose vaudeville eucceu -of ywteryear made them stage favorites in scores of cities, founfl muscle dancers at the world's fair too "hootchey-kootcbey" to be compared with troupers of a quarter century ago. Touring the Century of Progress exposition on a visit Aero, the sisters were asked to pose with a group of oriental dancers. "None of that for ws," declar^ ed Addle. "We always gave a nice, refined act." Effle indignantly denied that they were attempting : a stage comeback, explaining: "We ain't never quit the stage." Fatal Iowa Accidents United Vc*s Automobile accidents, a boating mishap and a railroad accident contributed six lives to a weekend death toll in Iowa. The Rev. Raymond Dachs, 60, Sioux City, founder of the Lithuanian church of Chicago was killed when struck by a switch engine as he sat on a spur of track near the Sioux City Packing plant. Ward Patterson, 19. Bloomfleld, was drowned when a boat containing 20 passengers capsized in Lake Wapello near Bloomfield. Mrs. Chester Lawson, 47, Des Molnes, was fatally injured when the car In which she ani her husband were rldi. 4, swerved off a 10- foot bank near Hamlln la. Gael Doane. 26, Newton, died of a fractured skull following an accident near Tama. Donald Geise, 22, Underwood, was killed when the car in which he was riding swerved off the road near Weston overturned. Domrninic Ligourl, 43, Des Molnes, died of a fractured skull when struck by a car while standing on a bridge. Aimce Returns From Europe :«' en as promptly as possible, will agreement in good faith."

Interpretation No. 1 concerned wages of employers who are receiving more than the minimum wages Essential Health Activltle., provided in the blanket agreements "What the average community nesds Is a well organized health department which emphasizes five types of activities." says the American Public Health association. These activities are: "(1) The safeguarding of child health and motherhood; (2) the control of contagion; (3) accurate recording .of births and deaths; (4) support of public health laborator/es ad (5) sanitary control of diseases spread from human waste and by vermin and insects." The State D3partment of Health provides that due emphasis be given to each of the above mentioned activities. To illustrate how these five essential functions are interrelated, the interest of the various bureaus in the new born baby, preschool and school child may be cited as an example. Child health is safeguarded by providing information and instruction for the mother which will ^enable her to give the child such'caie and training as will make possifre his highest mental ltd pbysica. development. Through the Bureau ot Vital Statistics, complete and accurate birth registration s kept, as well as records indicating deaths which occur amoi. fe children from such preventa'-le diseases as diphtheria and tuberculosis. Contagion is prevented* or controlled against further spread through ihe encouragement of immunization early in life, through the prompt reporting o" infectious disease and through cooperation between the State Department of Health and health officers in local communities. Public health laboratories and sanitary engineer? provide additional bulwarks of protection, abo.ut child life, througn the procuring and analysis of samples from public water and milk supplies and through various- tests ,of specimens suspected germs. Through improvenrent of sanitation animal and insect-bornt diseases are held in check. Not alone the State Department of Health, but local county and city health departments as well, have as a prime motive the carrying cut of the five essential activities. Adequate health organization and wholehearted support on the part of various state and local agencies are essential if these activities are to be successfully maintained. Incidentally, wholehearted support includes a willingness and readinesb to provide for such services by making proper provision for them munity budget forwarded from those of harboring disease in the com- veteran . tist. claims to have discovered new source of ene rgy.

Section. 7, relating to this, binds the employer: "Not to reduce the compensation for employment now in" excess of the minimum wages hereby agreed to (notwithstanding that the hours worked in such employment may be hereby reduced) and to increae the pay for suet employment by an equitable ^adjustment of all pay schedules.* The official interpretation follows: "Paragraph 7 means, first, that compensation of employees above the minimum wage group (whether now fixed by the hour, day, week, or otherwise) shall not be reduced, either to compensate the employer for increases that he may be required to make in,, .tie .minimum wage group in order to comply with the agreement, or to turn this reemployment agreement intc a mere share-the-work movement without a resulting increase tot total purchasing power. This first provision of paragraph 7 is a general statement of what shall not be done. "The rest of the program is a particular statement of what shall be done, which is that rates of pay for employees above the minimum wage group shall be increased by "eouitable readjustments." No hard and fast rule can be laid down for such readlustments, because the variations in rates of pay and hours of work would make the application of any formula unjust in thousands of cases. We present, however, the following examples of the need for and methods of such readjustments: "Example 1. Employees now working forty hours per week jn factories when hours are reduced to thirty-five, the present rate per hour iftjncreased one-seventh would prpyide the same compensation for a normal week's work as before. "Example 2. Employees now working sixty hours per week in factories. When hours are reduced to thirty-five, a rat '-per hour if increased one-seventh might be insufficient to provide proper com- nensation. But. to Increase the rate- by five>sevenths, in order to provide the same compensation for thirty-five hours as previously famed in sixty, might impose an ineouitable burden on-the employ- eft The sixty-four week-might have been ia effect because of a rush of business, altho a forty-hour week ance and also joins in the stibmis-. sion of a code of fair competition before Sept. 1,;1933, his determination of what are "equitable readjustments" should IK accepted, at least prior to Sept. 1, as a prima facie compliance with his agreement, pending -action by NRA : upon the code sub'mitted. or any other action -fef >s T RA taken to ' insure" proper 1 interpretations' or""applica- tionsvof agreements. This will afford NRA an-opportunity to survey_ the general results of the reemployment program and to iron out difficulties and misunderstandings over agreements that are of a' substantial character." Interpretation No. 2 concerned Paragraph 14, which reads: "It is agreed that any person who wishes tc do his part in the president's re-employment drive by signing this agreement, but who asserts 'that some particular provision hereof, because of peculiar circumstances, will .create great and unavoidable hardship, may obtain the benefits hereof by signing this agreement and putting ft into effect and then, in a petition approved by a representative trade association of his industry or any i other representative organization designated -by NRA, may apply for a stay of such provision pending a summary investigation by NRA, if he-agrees'to such application to abide by the "decision of such investigation?' -.-'"A person" who believes- ; *at spm.e particular provision in the agreeent, .because of peculiar circumstances, will create, great and unavoidable hardship, should prepare a petition to NRA asking for a stay of this provision as to him. He should then submit his petition to the trade association of his industry, or/if there is none, to the local chaber of comeroe or similar representative organization, designed by the NRA for its approval. The writtea approval of the trade association, or such other organization, will be accepted by NRA as he basis for a temporary stay,, without further investigation, pending decision by the NRA. The petition must contain a promise to abide by NRA'S decision, so that'lf NRA decides against ths petitioner, he must give effect to the provision which was stayed, from the -date of the decision of NRA. ••':"-;,"v "The petition and approval of the trade association or other organization, as prescribed above, should be forwarled might have been-normal practice SDOnia De forwarled to NRA in at the same hourly wage.
