United PreM Wire Service NO. 42 JOHNSON BREAKS STEEL DEADLOCK III EXPORT Police Official In Picket Line PRICE OF MAT Heavy Surplus Makes Up for Short Crop By MAX BUCKINGHAM United Press Financial Writer NEW YORK CUJ:) — The American farmer seeks a new outlet for his wheat crop, but behind the scarcity of export demand, many experts believe, lies the reason for the strange perfoitiance of the wheat market. Wheat— one of Ihe world's most necessary commodities— has i^- cently become the barometer for the nation's marts. During the period of excited speculation between .March 3 and the middle of July, wheat skyrocketed and led other markets jpward. Then the wheat market bogged down and crashed. Prices sank and sank. A "peg" was put on the market— that is an arbitrary figure was set below which prices could not drop. Once that was removed prices started down again. Five cents per bushel limitations were put in on fluctuations. Friday, after a sharp rise Thursday, the market dropped the five- cent lim:!. An indication of the fluctuation in this necessary commodity n shown in September delivery. Early this year it was quoted at 45>,4 cents p'.r bushel. On July IS, just before the crash, ii was quoted at 53.20 j;"r bushel. Today it was quoted at 84% cents per bushel, the lo'-. cst it could fall under the Chicago board u' trade rulings.

Kan. U.R)—Sixteen convicts at the federal prison annex here were in ;olitary confinement Saturday as .he result of a riot that took more than 24 hours to suppress, according to word which "leaked out" from usually reliable sources.

Economists studying the possible effect of the NRA and the agriculture adjustment program on world trade believed that al- tho the initial, effect would be beneficial, price rise-", might come so rapidly in the United States as to initiate a new depression. A thoro discussion of the new American program was led by Dr. Harold Moulton of the Brookings institution at Washington. "The danger of the American program lies in the rapid rise in. prices," Moulton said. ^"T-o. pro- 1 :ect American industry It may he necessary to raise tariffs again. "While the revival of Amerian business cannot help benefit- ng other nations, new tariff barriers may halt their American purchases. "In the. specific example of cot- on, American tariffs on other ommodities may force foreign nations to stop buying American otton. Such action would almost certainly result in failure f the cotton recovery program, and failure of that program might well start a new series of epression forces." Moulton repudiated a theory of 'rof. T. E. Gregory of England hat success of the NRA program mplied inflation or' devaluation f the gold dollar in the United tates. "The NRA program was de- ised to prevent fiscal inflation of the type which so many European , nations fear," Moulton answered Professor Gregory. "Inflation may come but it is not inherent in the program and it was not the original intent of the administration to employ it."

VV. Va. Mrs. Roosevelt Is Surprise Visitor to Miners' Homes MORGANTOWN, W. Va. (U.R) —Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt was en route to Hyde Park Saturday, leaving behind a half dozen workers' villages slill startled by hor unexpected, inspection tour of the. coal niininR districts. Many minors refused |o hollevo their visitor really had hocn Mrs. ized labor to use the collective bargaining guarantees of the national recovery act as a battering ram to force its way into major industries which hitherto have kept the door closed in its face. Major sections ofkthe bituminous coal industry now are on a nonunion basis, operators insisting on dealing with their employes only on an individual basis or thru company unions sponsored by the mines. The same situation prevails thruout most of the steel industry which has its company union systems. The automobile industry is largely open shop, as opposed to organized labor's goal of a closed shop in which a man would have to have a union card before he could obtain work. Now organized labor sees its big chance to enroll millions of workers under its banner and increase its power tremendously. It has the recovery administration with it to the extent that the NRA insists :hat industry must deal with unions if the workers choose to join them. This insistence is based' 1 , on section of the national recovery act n which congress decreed that every code must provide: "That"employes shall have the right to organize and bargain col- ectively thru representatives of ;heir choosing and shall be free rom the interference of employers of labor or their agents in the designation -ol such representatives or in self-organization or in other concerted activities for "the purpose of collective bargaining or other mutual aid or protection. "That no employe and no one seeking employment shall be required to join'any company union or to refrain from joining, organizing or assisting a labor organization of his own choosing." Administrator Hugh S. Johnson points out that this in no way requires unionization of industry, but he is insistent that the codes shall not restrict the freedom of action guaranteed to labor by the act. In his words, employers "would have to negotiate with the devil if em- ployes chose him to represent them." The steel industry sought at first to include a provision in its code for maintenance of the company union system. It withdrew this section under administration pressure, but served notice that it still intended to do its utmost to maintain the company unions.

THE SCOPE AND PURPOSE OF THE PRESIDENTS EMERGENCY RE-EMPLOYMENT CAMPAIGN WltOOURMRT The president's emergency re-employment campaign may be described briefly as a plan to add from 5,000,000 to 6,000,000 persons to the nation's payrolls within the next six weeks or so, thru agreements jnade with the President of the United States by some 5,000,000 concerns qr individuals, employing two or more persons each. In order that this number of jobs may be made available, it will be necessary, of course, for employers in many cases to shorten working hours. The plan also provides for certain minimum wage scales which also in many cases will mean added labor costs fon the employer. The president's agreement, however, includes a pledge of cooperation from the consuming public, and it is thus anticipated that the employer, while undertaking a larger expense as the direct result of his agreement with the president, will gain added patronage as the just reward of his public spirited attitude. • The fact also is fo be borne in mind that where all employers act together to put people back on their payrolls or to raise wages, no employer, as the president himself has pointed out "will suffer because the relative level of competitive cost will advance by the same amount for all." ft is to be understood that this plan is supplementary to the plan of code adoption by various industrial and trade groups which has for its purpose the elimination of unfair competition, the establishment of more equable rewards for labor, the spread of employment and the control of production. This plan for speeding business recovery, launched under the provisions of the national recovery act passed by the last congress, is rapidly being made effective, and there will be no let-up on the drive fo make Its "adoption widespread. The president's emergency re-employment plan -will bridge time and bring the nation out of the depression more rapidly then if the code adoption plan were depended upon exclusively. The president's agreement also covers many business groups, that would not be amendable to any of the code arrangements. And what is still more important, perhaps, the president's emergency re-employment campaign carries certain psychological values f that are as priceless as patriotism at this juncture of our economic history. The president himself made this quite clear in his recent rplio address to the nation when he said: "On the basis of this jSimple principle of everybody doing things together, we are starting out on this nationwide attack on un- , employment. It* will; succeed if our people understand it—in the big industries, in the little shops, in the great cities and in the small villages. There is nothing complicated about it and there is nothing particularly new in the principle. It goes back to the basic idea of society, and of the nation itself, thai people acting in a group can accomplish things which no individual acting alone could ever hope to bring about." Thus we have all the power and potency of mass attack directed along iounfl lines of organization and system. Here briefly, is an outline of this organized attack on unemployment: In every community, organizations are formed along military lines, which is fitting enough, because the president's emergency re-employment campaign is Uncle Sam's war on unemployment and the nation is rallying to the colors just as lowally as though we were actually engaged in a war against a foreign foe. The local committee is made up of the active heads of the leading business and civic organizations, and includes also the mayor. These committees in the thousands of cities and towns thruout the country were formed following telegrams and letters sent by General Johnson to the presidents of chambers of commerce or similar trade bodies in every section of the United States. These local committees elect a general to have charge of the city campaign and a lieutenant general who is a woman. The general selects three colonels, each of whom is to take over a certain part of the campaign work. ..For example, Colonel No. 1 has charge of the "man-power" or organization department. • Under his direction block-to-block canvasses will be made to check, up on compliance with the president's agreement, and to make a survey of the unemployed, as to adaptability by experience as to trades and industries and thus be able more readily to help him in the processes of assimilation of labor by expanding industries. Colonel No. 2, briefly has charge of newspaper publicity and kindred activities- and Colonel No. 3 has the training and direction of public speakers under his charge. Each of these three colonels has seven or more majors on his staff, and each major has about the same number of captains. Each captain has seven or more field workers. All of the local organizations are, of course, constantly supplied with educational and inspirational material of all kinds from the national recovery administration in Washington. Literally tons and tons of printed matter has been shipped to every nook and corner of Ihe country. The N.R.A. emblem, known popularly as the Blue Eagle, is one of the most interesting and vital features of the campaign. All employers who sign the president's agreement are entitled to display the Blue Eagle with the'initials N.R.A. and the words "We Do Our Part." Merchants, manufacturers and all others who have the right to display the insignia by reason of their having complied with the president's agreement, are permitted to hang it on their walls, or in their windows, or on trucks and cars, and, If they so desire, to stamp it on their products or merchandise. It is, in fact, the desire of the recovery administration that all make liberal use of this badge of patriotism. Any person in the United States who wishes to cooperate iu the president's emergency re-employment campaign and be con sidered a member of the N.R.A. may go to the authorized establishment in his locality and sign "a statement of cooperation as follows: "I will cooperate in re-employment by supporting and patron izing employers and workers who are members of N.R.A." Any such signer will then be given and may thereafter use the insignia of consumer membership in N.R.A. Every phase of the progress of this mighty campaign will be flashed in the newspapers of the country and announced constantly over the radio. In this way everyone will be in a position to know just what the campaign is doing from day to day in actually putting people back on the payrolls and adding to the mass purchasing power of the country. While, as has been stated, it is desired that liberal use of the insignia be made by employer'and consumers, it is to be remembered that the official N.R.A. emblem is the property of the United States government and may not be used or reproduced without authority of the national recovery administration. The lists of all employers who sign the president's agreement are displayed in local post-offices and it is urged that all employers who have not yet signed the agreement do so immediately and deliver thenMo their local postmaster. With some minor exceptions, the terms of the president's agreement with employers is, briefly as follows: Any employer of a factory nr mechanical worker or artisan must not pay him less tlian -10 cents an hour or work him more than 35 hours a week, except that if the employer were paying less than -10 cents for that kind of work on July 15 the employer can pay that rate now, but. not less than 30 cents an hour. As to all other employes—those on a weekly rate—the employer will not pay less than $15 a week in a city of over 500,000 population; or $14.50 a week in cities of between 250.000 and 500.000; or $14 a week in cities between 2,500 and 250,000 population- or ? 12.00 a v»ek in cities of less than 2.500 population, and the employer agrees not to work this class of workers more than 40 hours a work. As to employes who were getting a higher wase, the employer must not reduce their wages because of a reduction in their hours and ho should generally keep the usual pay differeners as between tho lover anil higher paid employes. And after Am.Mi.it .11, lie tntiM not work rhildrfn under 1& years of n,ce. There are, of course, sonio other rules which npply to sprelnl ras^s, but the forms of the agreement n.x hore outlined rovr the bvce bulk of AGREEMENT PUTS CODE IN USE FOR 3 MONTHS TRIAL Lumber, Oil and Coal Are Next on List WASHINGTON, OIB) —A deadlock keeping the great oil, coal and steel industries out of the national recovery ranks was broken by administration pressure Saturday when agreement was reached on a steel code. Officials were confident smashing of the steel blockade foreshadowed early action to put the other industries under recovery codes. General Hugh S. Johnson, hard- hitting NRA administrator, drove the bargain on steel at protracted conferences with magnates that lasted most of the night Johnson hoped to place the formal code before President Roosevelt before he leaves for his home at Hyde Park, N. Y. Saturday night. . 400,000 Affected Quick action by the president was forecast by Johnson's announcement that the president already had approved the agreement made with the steel men. The agreement was for a 90-day trial of a code of regulating hours an* wages of 400,000 workers with the NRA having a voice in administration of the trial code. Success in forcing the steel industry into agreement was regarded as a signal victory for the Roosevelt administration. In steel more than in any other industry the president's recovery policies came in direct conflict with the nation's great financial powers, including the house of Morgan. Events leading up to the agreement were fast-moving. Johnson turned from oil conferences to a "brief meeting" with steel leaders, including such personages as W. A. Irwin, president of the Morgan- backed United States Steel Corp., former Governor Nathan L. Miller of New York, his counsel; Eugene Grace, chairman of the board of Bethlehem Steel Corp., and chairmen and presidents of other companies. Johnson faced them- early Friday afternoon. Excited talk emanated from the conference room. All afternoon and far into the evening the session continued. There was a brief recess for dinnef and then the meeting was resumed. Refuses to Talk Midnight passed and the conference continued. Finally at 1 a. m. the steel magnates came out. They were glum. They looked straight ahead as 7 they pressed their way thru reporters, refusing to talk. Johnson had kept them in conference almost 12 hours. Half an hour' later Johnson emerged. He was tired. His eyes. (Continued on Pag« Two) Final Cross Word Puzzle in Tribune- Times Contest Sat The final puzzle in the Tribune - Times advertising cross word puzzle contest appears in this issue.
