IOWA, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 1933 United PrtM Wire Service Ho. 63 NEAR MILLION IN ROAD JOBS AWARDED JOHNSON SEES JOBS BY OCT. I NRA Chief Impressed by Huge Parade in New York NEW YORK O) — Another million of the unemployed will be back at work by Oct. 1, General Hugh S. Johnson predicted Thursday after New York staged its greatest peace-time demonstration for the national recovery program. The psychology of unemployment has been replaced by the psychology of re-emplojment, Johnson believes. New York gave a mass expression of confidence Wednesday when more than a quarter million citizens marched up Fifth avenue. At least two million more looked on. The celebration lasted more thau 10 hours. "I saw everywhere that the strain had been lifted," Johnson later told the Merchants' association. "There was In every face a real hope for'the United States. "Four years ago the expressions of people in such a gathering would have been buoyant and jubilant, but insincere. "Tt.-o or three years ago you would have read anywhere the terrible casualty list, the rising human agony, when there was a tax for everything and everything was tpent. You could see it in people's faces; you didn't need to look at the descending markets. Even last March there was no hope, but now I can tee that there is." Johnson characterized the parade the "most marvtious demonstration I have ever seen." All afternoon and evening Fifth avenue echoed with the music of bands, the tramp of marchers, and the cheers of spectators. Every business group operating UEder the blue eagle was represented. Seven hours they marched in the nations most famous canyon of commerce, while unnumbered hordes pressed forwarcl-20 and 30 deep on either side of the avenue, cheering lustily as each of the divisions moved northward. In a reviewing stand two blocks long at 42nd street, next to the public library', were Mrs. Roosevelt, General Hugh Johnson, Mayor John P. O'Brien. Governor Herbert H. Lehman, and other dignitaries. In another stand adjoining the fowers of intimates, and on the broad steps of St. Patrick's Cathedral sat Cardinal Hayes.'surrounded (Continued on Pag* Two) r 18th Amendment May Die Dec. 6 Votes for repeal in seven more states will knock the prohibition amendment out of the constitution, as indicated by the map above, n which states which have voted wet are shown in white.

DEALERS AGREE ON INCREASE IN PRICE OF MILK Entire Amount Would Be Passed on to Farmers CHICAGO <tLE)—An increase in the price of milk froG 10 to 11 cents a quart, with the additional cent to be passed on to farmers, Thursday needed only sanction of the department of agriculture to become effective in Chicago. The price Increase was voted at a meeting Wednesday night of leading Chicago distributors and the Pure Milk association, representing producers. It followed repeated demands of farmers that the bisic price of $1.75 per hundred pounds, specified in the Chicago milk marketing act, be boosted to give them at least cost of production. Meanwhile preparations, were be- iag made by farmers in several sections north and west of Chicago to insure uninterrupted delivery of milk thru Kane and McHenry counties, where an embargo on dairy products was declared Wednesday. Farmers formed "flying squadrons" to escort thru picket lines other farmers wishing to bring milk to Chicago. Sheriff lister Edinger of McHenry county said he anticipated no violence. Authorities of surrounding counties said they would furnish escorts to farmers who asked for protection. Officials estimated that slightly more tiisn 1,000 farmer were participating in the embargo on shipments to Chicago. Directors of the Pure Milk association, which includes 18,000 farmers, said the strike was entirely unauthorized and that the association would at- tempte to insure safe delivery of milk to all its members. 500 Engage in Milk War Battle -HARVARD, - 111.

Farmers Holiday Association to Draft NRA Code for U.S.Farmers Will Demand Approval Under Threat of a Nation-Wide Strike of Producers By HARTZELL SPENCE United Press Staff Correspondent (Copyright, 1933, by United Press) DES MOINES (U.P.)—A new national farm strike is " unavoidable " unless the NRA provisions are extended to agriculture, Milo Reno told the United Press Thursday. An NRA code is.being drafted by the FarmeVs Holiday association, of which Reno is president and guiding genius,'which will be submitted to directors from 24 midwest states at, a meeting here Sept. 22. The code will be submitted to recovery administration officials shortly- thereafter. "If it is not adopted,'' Reno said emphatically, "there is no possibility of postponing longer the strike scheduled for last spring which was delayed to give the administration a chance to make good its promises." Asset-ting that for more than a had month he had resisted pressure from many states for renewal of the strike—an action left to the discretion of the national directorate—Reno characterized the farm allotment programs as "destructive and pitiful efforts which cannot give lasting relief." The NRA, he said, "must be ex- session wj]| b° for nierT only. tended to agriculture at, once, or 500,000 American farmers will go on strike, holding their produce from markets.

The Roosevelt Prepared to Intervene WASHINGTON <U.R) — Bi- luminous coal operators repre-' senting about '90 per cent of the industry today agreed upon a code and arranged to present it within a few hours to the NRA. The operators code was to be studied by administration official* in an effort to reach an agreement that would be satisfactory both to operators, labor representatives and the NRA. WASHINGTON. (U.E) — N R A Thursday sought to speed up the long lagging soft coal code negotiations. A walkout of Pennsylvania miners in protest against code delay assumed serious proportions. President Roosevelt was ready to intervene if an agreement is,delayed tntfch longerl Deputy Administrator K. M. Simpson announced he and Don- ald-Richbcrg. NRA chief .counsel, had completed their study of proposed revisions, of the administrative section of the code, and were ready to begin conferences with a committee of operators. ';' Gerard Swope, head of the special arbitration board appointed by the president to adjust last month's Pennsylvania coal strike, sought to persuade miners not to join the hew walkout, but his appeal apparently had little effect. '., . Mine union leaders here felt that operators could not expect them to restrain their men longer. Labor-and industrial advisory boards sought to check unrest iu other fields by drafting a joint statement of..policy. The statement is expected to be made public by the president.

A "holiday," to be kept until the code is signed and the United Mine Workers of America recognized, was spreading gradually. It was feared that if the code conferences remain at an impasse, every mine in the 14 Pennsylvania soft coal counties would be closed. Miners who refused to work totaled 25,000. It was beli?ved that when a check of the field was completed that number would be increased by at least 10.0UO.' The miners went on their holiday against the advice of recognized U. M. XV. A. leaders. C)wen D. Young Urges Restraint NEW YofeK, <U.Pi — Economic self-restraint — avoidance of overreaching for profits, wages, or jargains—was asked of all groups by Owen D. Young Wednesday night in an NRA address. "Capital which overrsachts for profits, labor which overreaches or wages, or a'Public which over- •eaches for bargains will all destroy each other," Young said. 'There is no salvation for us on hat. road. The overreaching hand n all tbrfe groups is an enemy of he NRA." "The govprnmrnt "Hntist permit and not prohibit cooperation— in- ieed. it must coerer those who ill not play fair. That is the eapon for the NRA," h= declared. Ten Injured in PRICE CONTROL ISSUE BOBS UP STRONG AGAIN Secretary Roper Heads Special Board to Make Study WASHINGTON (UJ?) — A new study of industrial and retail costs was started by the recovery administration Thursday to provide the basis of a decision on the problem of controlling prices. The study was undertaken thru a committee named by the industrial recovery board, headed by Secretary of Commerce Roper. Its objective is to find a basic rule for determining costs of production and merchandising so that a uniform procedure may»be followed. The master retail code with its price fixing provisions is approaching action by the administration. It is agreed by officials that more definite attention to the price question is essential. The retail code is now before die NRA advisory boards. It may bring more discussion before the consumers board which is protesting price fixing measures, agrees to its terms. Opposes Price Fixing The consumers board opposes price fixing except in basic industries such as oil, and then only with safeguards. The board fears general price fixing would mean too high prices for consumers. The price fixing provisions in the retail code have stated that minimum prices must be a certain per cent above cost. The percentage has varied during different phases of the negotiations but at present is understood to be 10 per cent. Unless a careful formula is applied for the definition .of cost, not only in the retail trades, but in other industries as well, much confusion is likely to develop. No clear cut policy on prices has been reached yet by the NBA. While officials "realize that the problem is assuming great importance in the general rtecovfery-^ro; gram, various factors have contributed to delay in arriving "at definite rulings or administrative measures: Farmers Complain Suggestions have been made "within" the 'qrganizaticjn- fqr, ;; crea« lion of price .control, featuies r and some regulation in this direction probably will be developed. Farmers especially are complaining of increases in the costs of things they must buy. Government reports show that from July 15 to Aug. 15 farm prices dropped four points while prices of goods went up five points. "The restoration of farm buying power, keystone of national recovery, is menaced by the rising prices of articles farmers must buy," declared Kdward A. O'Neal, president of the American Farm Bureau federation. "The farmer never will catch up with the cost of living if this continues. Secretary of Agriculture Wai(Continued or Page Two.)

Black Predicts Hog Purchases Will Go Higher WASHINGTON (U.E) — Dr. A.

Dr. Black said he expected to announce soon the exact number of pigs the administration now expects to buy. The total has been variously estimated at from 5,000,000 to 6,000,000.
