BITUMINOUS COAI WITH EVADING Labor Asserts Large Surplus Being Piled Up WASHINGTON C.P> — Spokesmen for organized labor charged Wednesday that powerful financial interests were obstructing coal code negotiations in order to pile up surpluses of low-cost coal. The assertion was made that a deliberate policy of over-production would result in widespread slackening of mine activity after the code, with higher wage rates and bans on price slashing, goes into operation. Many of the sales being made now to railroads and utilities are at prices below the cost of production. In some-eases being as low as 90 cents a ton. Faced with these charges, the NRA sought to speed up negotiations in conferences with two new committees of operators selected after Tuesday's (• public hearings. One committee is working on the code itself, the other on administration of the code. NRA issued a statement say- Ing. "It has become apparent that various provisions of the code can be rewritten *n a manner to iron out many objections and make the code satisfactory to a larger percentage of the industry." In connection with the charges of the labor leaders, complaints already have been made that the lumber code has resulted in unemployment rather than re-employment. Thi? is attributed to the frenzied production at low wage" scales before the lumber code became effective. The situation is aggravated by fh*? highly organized condition of the industry and the unrest pre- wsilin? « '•• tbe'Mcac 1 *.--.8eJd.fr—^over the code delay If large purchasers of coal stock up nojv for future needs, th,e householder wi]I be left to On a Railroad Man's Holiday!

It has beeu estimated that the retail price of coal will be jumped possibly as much as $2 per ton under wage agreements such as. the ones now being discussed. Coal production in July went to 29,482,000 tons, as compared to 17.S57.000 in July. 1932. The appointment of the two new committees of nine members each to discuss the code left the impression that actual approval of a code was still many days distant. In presenting the procedure by which the XRA hopes- to reach a coal code after a summer of. wrangling and dispute, General Counsel Donald Rlchberg said the emphasis would be upon speed, but he gave no definite deadline. Labor leaders were dissatisfied by these tactics. They said privately that the situation held serious potentialities. County Legion Group Meets at Roland Fri.

Ames Relief Project Suffers Loss 'An interesting report of tiie community garden project undertaken by a committee of which City Manager J. H. Ames was chairman, in Ames during the past summer, was read by Mr. Ames before the Storj County Social Service league's. d rectors meeting, Tuesday night, i the city hall. The data was compiled by Gaj lord Campbell, employed by th garden committee to supervise th project. The task of supervisio was a colossal one, because of tb fact that gardens were scatteret all over the city, with many o them beyond the city limits. Seed were furnished by the committe for many gardens, while others re cetving social service aid wer placed under Mr. Campbell's super vision. The long drouth of the early par of the summer played havoc with these gardens, and the average re turns are much, lower than would have been otherwise. In fact, manj gardens were abandoned because of the drouth. 178 Given Seed There were 17S families to whom garden seeds were given in the spring. There were a total of 205 garden plots placed under Mr Campbe'l's supervision, including several in two city-owned lots. One was the five-acre tract on South Duff avenue, and the other a plot near the Ames cemetery. ' Because of abandonment or re moval of families, failure to take care of gardens, and other causes no report is available on the condition of 94 of the 205 gardens. The following tabulated results therefore cover only 124 gardens. Results of various garden crops, with the exception of potatoes as (Contitr.ed on Page Two.) 3 MORE STATES JOIN PARADE FOR DRYLAWREPEAl Wets Need But Seven Extra to Attain Their Goal By UNITED PRESS The approval of only seven more states was needed Wednesday to remove the ISih amendment from the constitution. Substantial returns from Colorado, Minnesota and Maryland which voted Tuesday indicated good majorities for repeal. They were the 27tb, 2Sth, and 29th states to join the unbroken wet parade. With more thai, three-fourths of the state's precincts counted, re- peaJ led in Colorado by more than two to one. With more than half of the precin.ts counted in Minnesota, the repealists were maintaining the same lead. In Maryland, the repeal victory was expected to approach the proportions of 5% tq Tuesday's landslide for repeal, following close on a wet victoiy in the prohibition pioneer state of Maine, Monday, placed repeal within reaching distance of actuality. Ten slates vote between now and Nov. 7. Wets are confident of winning all, but need to win only se.y- en for victory. New Mexico.and Idaho vote next Tuesday. Virginia votes Oct. 3, Florida Oct. 10, and Ohio, PennsyL vania. North and South Carolina, Utah and Kentucky, Nov. 7.

Japan Will Demand Right to Construct Larger Navy Nipponese Government Plans to Press Its Request at Next International Naval Conference; Does'Not Aim at Full Parity With U. S. and Britain By MILES W. VAUGHN Cepyrlflht 1933 b« United Pr«M United Prew Staff Correspondent TOKIO, <1IE>—Navy Minister Mineo Osumi told the United Frees in an exclusive interview Wednesday that Japan will demand a naval ration more nearly approximating that of Great Britain and the United States at the next International naval' conference. International observers saw in his flat statement a possibility of unlimited naval competition after the London naval treaty expires in 1935 unless Japan's demand is met in a new treaty. Osumi left no doubt of Japan's dissatisfaction with existing treaties that limit the Nipponese navy to three vessels of war to every fives for the United States and five for Great Britain. The minister did not say what ratio Japan will demand. Unofficial reports here were that the Japanese will ask 7.3 ships for each 10 owned by the other two great powers, rather, than absolute equality. The interview came as Japan employs a huge portion of the bud-' get in building her navy to the borderline of the London treaty limitation and increasing her army and air forces. .Osumi said the idea of an ag- gressive war, however, has no place In Japanese plans. He said that national security and limitation of fighting power are inextricably related, thai Japan must maintain peace in the far east and assure- her defenses. "There is no reason why a nation should remain forever content with a treaty previously signet/' said the navy minister. "\Ve signed the London treaty only conditionally, for reasons of the welfare of humanity. For the same reason, we signed the Washington .treaty. "Those treaties at present are inadequate to guarantee security of the Japanese empire. The inter- national situation has become altered since they were drafted. "Furthermore, it is doubtful if present relations are rational or economical. "At.any rale we are dissatisfied with present limitations, and will demand a change of ratios at the next conference." Osumi denied that Japan and the United States are engaged in a naval race, hut justified his nation's demand for a stronger navy by quoting Claude Swanson, U. S. secretary of the Navy, who said the American war fleet must be of sufficient strength to defend the (Continued on Pj.ge Three) An agreement on minimum prices to be charged students and attaches of Iowa State college for board and room during the coming school year was reached by a group ot 92 boarding and rooming house keepers in the fourth ward, at a meeting Monday night. The meeting was held at the residence of J. Ed Allen. 116 Hyland avenue, and the group largely represented the entire rooming houpe business of the fourth ward. Prof. E.

PAUL, Minn., 'U.Ei — With more than half the state's precincts, tabulated, ratification of the 1 ' 21st (repeal) amendment was leading by more than 2 tc 1 Wednesday in Minnesota, home of Andrew Volstead. The vote in 1.9SO of the state's 3,693 precincts ;n Tuesday's special election gave: For repeal 313,349. Against repeal 149,1599. The tabulation represented virtually every section of the state, including all of Minneapolis and a majority of St. Paul. In St. Paul, anti-prohibitionists piled up a majority of 4^A to 1. Outstate voting was running at a New York Stages Huge Parade To Show Confidence in Pres. NEW YORK (U.E>—Inspired by a personal appeal from Gen, Hugh S. Johnson. New York staged a mam. moth demonstration Wednesday of its confidence in President Roosevelt's recovery program. Virtually all business establishments closed at 1 p. m. for a parade of 250,000 marchers, climaxing a two-day avowal of faith in the NRA. The celebration began Tuesday night'with a rally at.Madison Square garden, at which General Johnson spoke. The country is about one-quarter of the way out p! the depression, Johnson said. Eighty-five per cent of employers are enrolled under the NRA Now the nation must guard against the counsel of discredited leaders, those who when the .banks were (ftosed in March demanded an | "economic czardom." Some of these same leaders, Johnson intimated, are saying: "W T e are on our way out. The president's recovery program had nothing to do with Jt.Jf Let us abandon the whole thing and go back to the good old days?" Such people display "short memories — short, sight — short sportsmanship," Johnson said. "No man can put his' finger on any particular cause and say that v.-as T.-hy' this country "has been lifted about a quarter of the way out of the March depths since Franklin Roosevelt became president," he declared. "But any man can be very.^ure that there was chaos-— then action— and provement so' definite and certain (Contuued on Page Three) . swift and intelligent then nation-wide im- OPPOSITION SAYS SAN MARTIN ratio of to 1 for repeal.

New Administration Gains Strength HAVANA (U.E>—President Ramon Irau San Martin, claiming the support of the people, proceeded Wednesday with plans to consolidate his power and restore constitutional government; His government decided the opposition was so weak, it could be ignored. Admitting the hostility or coldness of the. principal political parties and the opposition of deposed army and navy officers encamped at the National hotel, the government asserted it had the backing of a majority of the people. The politicians and the officers expressed confidence that the government was so weak it would fall by itself without a revolt. It had no authority at all outside of Havana, they asserted, and was leaving the country to anarchy.' The cabinet determined to pay no attention either to acts or statements of the 'military" "officers. The guards, strung around the large grounds of the National hotel to watch for signs of a revolt were reduced in number. The -military officers are quartered there. It was asserted at the palace that normal order was being restored in the provinces and strikes were bekg settled. Laborers, it was said, were being granted increased wages. There were no reports of disorder in the provinces. For a time Tuesday grave fear was held for safety of Americans at Santiago at the eastern end of the island. Apparently reliable reports said Americans, were concentrating at Rente, across the bay from Santiago, and might need tents for shel- Direct reports from Santiago, lowever, diminished fears.

The president reported that the upswing of farm prices was bringing results, that the recovery program was reducing the number of destitute and that the administration was pouring credit into trade channels to quicken the" business upturn. He indicated readiness to swing the "big stick" at once if the bituminous coal industry continued hjaggliiig' over a code. He called steel magnates to a conference which he hopes will result in large orders of steel rails for railroads. The master retail code was in form for definite action by Administrator Hugh S. Johnson. October 1 was set as the deadline for substitution of wage and hour provisions in the president's re-employment agreement. The national labor 'board in a unanimous decision has upheld the right of workers to be "represented by outside agents in negotiations with employers. In its first direct ruling on labor provisions of the national recovery act, the board held that the Berkeley woolen mills, Martinsburg, W.

The union officials had been selected by striking employes to represent them in negotiations. mains to go another third of the way back in order to accomplish the agricultural phase of the nation's recovery program. It was pointed out that farm prices were estimated for 1933 at ?6,100,000,000.
