The afternoon was spent, in Wages Campaign Against Prison Goods Implement Men Ask Revision of System in Iowa A campaign is being waged thru- out Iowa to bring pressure on the next cession of the state legislature for a radical revision of the present system ol disposing of^merchandise manufactured In Iowa's penal Institutions, chiefly to remove them from direct and "unfair" competition with the products of free labor. The Iowa Implement Dealers association, because of its special In. terest Is the manufacture and sale of farm machinery and binder twine, has taken the lead In the movement, and is now causing petitions to be circulated thruout the state asking the next legislature to revise the system ntra existing in this state, The coming of the NRA greatly revived nation-wide Interest In the whole question of prison : made goods in competition with the products of free labor. ,A code <»rer- ing marketing -of prison products has been formulated, and when acted upon by*"the governors of boards of control .of the 32 interested states, will be presented to General Hush Johnson and President Roosevelt. To Make Cottt "Fair" ' Part of the provisions of this code provide that prison labor should be limited to a' 40-hour week, or the same as other workers in industry wten such 'limitations are less than 40 .hours: and the charging into the cost of pro- duction.the same labor burden per unit as enters into the cost of producing goods of like character made in free industry. The code would prohibit the sale of prison- made articles at less than cost of production. There are many other provisions of the proposed code, establishing a governing board, fixing other details to insure elimination of com- netitive features which are held "unfair." The Iowa petition is being circulated bjt C. H. Chase of Ames, secretary of the implement dealers organization, and also secretary of a committee of representatives of many of Iowa's manufacturing industries.

At the Hospitals I prisons or pensJ Institutions or by prison or convict labor. "We bolleve that the passage of such an act would result in a considerable increase In em- • ployment for free labor now greatly in ne*d of work and would effectively assist the president of the United States in attaining the results desired under the national industrial recovery act. "Provided, however, that this prohibition of sale on the open market, shall not be construed to prevent the sale or exchange of the products of prisoners or convicts, for tho use of state penal, charitable or custodial institutions or similar institutions of the political subdivisions thereof." Fret Labor Deprived Salient discussion points are also presented by Mr. Chase. Some of these are: "Every time a carload of Imported or prison made binder twine Is purchased by an American dealer, 70 free American laborers are deprived of one day's work. "Cordage mills in th'e United States are operating on greatly reduced schedules, while prison plants are working overtime." Data compiled by Mr. Chase shows that in 1932, there were 82,276 federal and state prisoners employed at productive labor, whereas in 1923, there were only 51,799. The value of prison-made products last year was. more than $75,000,000. Many Prisoners Unpaid Of 116 state prisons, only 68 are paying prisoners for their work, a condition applying also to only sev- out of 12 federal institutions. It was announced at the state capitol in Des Moines a short time ago that a Chicago manufacturing company which gave a contract for the manufacture of aprons and dresses at the men's reformatory at Anamosa, had notified the state it would cancel the contract, in view of new federal legislation and the proposed code covering prison products. This prison Industry has been employing about 475 men.-The Chicago concern owned the mach- i inery used at the prison. ^Xf^r;; <2H ooae o at iv • {<rt me. to be UJD-'UV loll made aJW/tttk near and dufirxct SV.mau U.
