Approval before the day was over of a code for the oil industry* was the first object of the president, Recovery Administrator Hugh S. Johnson and Secre- itary of Interior Ickes. Coal and steel , groups conferred during the day with recovery leaders seeking a solution of labor problems in order to put the industries under the blue eagle before President Roosevelt leaves for Hyde Park, Saturday.

Ostensibly, .he he may be -prep-ring to defend Irak againsf a possible investigation by the League of Nations. The trouble began when Assyrian tribesmen fled across the border to French Rysla after refusing to dflrver thetr arms to Irak authorities. The French, it wa s alleged after disarming them, restored 500 rifles to the tribesman, who then returned across the border. Fighting resulted in the recruiting of Kurds, traditional enemies of Assyrians. Their suppression of the little rebellion, apparently, became a. massacre in which they did uot bother to select rebellious Assyrians' from peaceable ones. j at least 629 Assyrians had been killed. Of these at least 200 were said to have been villagers slaughtered by KurdsJ Several Assyrian villages have-been'burned. Tribesmen Attack • With Famous Swords MOSUL, Irak] <U.E>—Fierce Kurd tribesmen, armed wjth their famous swords, have swept rebellious Assyrians from the Mosul region into the mountains to the north, leaving half of the Assyrian band dead after a series of .hloody skirmishes.

Weeks of Mountain Adventures An Ames Boy Scout adventure east of Dufango, Co_lo.. on a wind- tour into the southwest came to an end Wednesday afternoon, when the party of five 'boys headed by Harold E. Schmidt, arrived home, just three weeks from the day they left. The final leg of the tour proved exciting when the boys suddenly came upon a wrecked automobile with two injured persons unable to help themselves. First aid was administered to the injured men, and the wreckage was cleared off the mountain, road by the scouts. This incident occurred 45 miles ing mountain road. The antiquated car, its top torn off, stood crosswise of the highway. A dazed cowboy sat on the seat cushion beside the car.

Payrolls have been increased from $25 to $86 per week for each establishment. In several stores, young people of high school age who have been employed have been released and married men with families given preference in the positions. The 12 stores included in the survey are all included'' in the group that have adopted slightly shorter business hours since the NRA program went into effect, a strong rebuttal, say the proprietors, to the assertion that the new business hours are curtailing the re-employment 'program. COURT UPHOLDS STRIKING LABOR Denies Injunction To Halt Violence CHICAGO, . (.TIE)— A court decision holding that an employer is not entitled to an injunction restraining striking workers^ from violsnce" if : conditions*Tn"His plant justify a walkout was studied, here Thursday as possibly opening up a new field in settlement of labor difficulties. The decision, believed one of the first of its kind on record, was handed down by Judge Harry M. Fisher in circuit court in the case of the La Mode Garment company. The firm -sought an injunction against the International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union -as a result of a strike of 400 employes. Judge Fisher refused the injunction, holding that company officials themselves did not come into the court with clean hands. He ordered them to abide by their NRA code and institute a '40-hour week and a minimum weekly wage ! of $12. ! "The question to be determined is -whether the complainant comes into -court with clean hands," Judge Fisher's decision read. "I find that unfair wages, unreasonable hours of labor, unhealthy working conditions, etc.. are directly connected with this suit. "True, the conduct of aii employer which causes a lawful strike does not justify lawlessness on the part of strikers. But in equity the complainant's own hands must be clean if he is tc prevail against those who injure him." Judge Fisher also pointed out that the "prevailing conditions in this plant violate! the spirit of the National Recovery Act." The decision was handed down under the binding Tuley act, which provides that both parties accept he court's decision as final and Market Reports Restored; WOI Is /Back oil List WASHINGTON (HE)—Secretary of Agriculture Wallace Thursday restored to practically complete operations the department's market news service which was curtailed' 1 'recently 1 - for ; economy purposes.

O'Neal Declares Price Advance Needed CHICAGO (UP) — The agriculture adjustment act was pictured by Edward O'Neal, American ' Farm Bureau president, Thursday as a balance-wheel that will determine the entire success of President Roosevelt's national recovery program. "The NRA will succeed only as the agriculture adjustment act succeeds," O'Neal told the United Press. The farm leader believed that success or failure of the NRA will be determined in the next few- weeks. Within that period, he believed, the farmer's buying power must be advanced, "The entire recovery program rests with the farmer," O'Neal said. "If the prices of farm products are not raised within the next few weeks, giving'the farmer a better foothold, the NRA is destined to fall." ' ' ' '..'••• On t{ J 8 Plained," the "farmer "can and will assure success of the recovery program if, he is'given a eliance., He stands in the key position to the entire situation." O'Neal cited southern cotton planters as an example. "Cotton growers' new program has revolutionized their industry,", he declared. "Other farmers probably will follow their example. If they do, the NRA will bescarried to great heights." Commenting on the adjustment act, O'Neal pictured it as opening the way to restoration of equality between industry and labor. "Under its far-reaching possibilities," he sa.ir>, "we can make a public utility out of agriculture. It lays the foundation for bringing about, a balance between consumption and production of farm pro ducts/' The farm bureau, with headquarters in Chicago, has members in all 4$ states. Officials here were unable to estimate the number of farmers who will benefit if the program is successful, but called attention to the southern cotton district, where more than 20,000,000 persons gain a livelihood from the 2,000,000 cotton farms. Expect 100,000 to Hear Wallace CHICAGO (U.E>— Farmers attending a week's program set aside for them at the world's fair awaited an address by Secretary 6f Agriculture Wallace Thursday to hear him outline the part they are to play in the national recovery program.

Thompson '• United Pr:ss Staff Correspondent (Copyright, 1933, by United Press) WASHINGTON <UJR) — Strong support for creation of a price coni trol board to regulate price ad' vances and guard against profiteer'' ing, developed in the Roosevelt administration Thursday. " Control of prices has become of the most critical problems facing the national recovery administration. The controversy which, resulted in the withdrawal of Professor William F. Ogburn, prominent economist, from the consumers advisory board has accentuated this situation. Ogburn warned that lack ot statistical date might hamper the NRA program. He declared th* present NRA consumers agencies were inadequate to protect the public. Advisers to Administrator Hugh S. Johnson .have stressed the argument that fundamental purposes of the recovery act will be nullified if wages do not increase more than prices. In other words, mass purchasing power will not be improved if all the increases in wages have to be used to meet increased prices. Supporters of the price board plan point out that au a'gency of this character could keep an adequate check on all industries and determine when price increases were justified by Increased costs resulting from presidential reemployment agreements or - NRA codes.
