AMtt DAILY TWBUH* TUOS1, AJIXI, IOW A, THQEBOAT, OCTOBER I, 1933. " BUT BRTIK Ol AMM" Frances Perkins Outlines Administration's Achievements AIDE TALKS TO LABOR Reveals Former Long| Time Program -' By RAYMOND CLAPPER United Press Staff Correspondent. WASHINGTON <U.E)— Administration achievements appear better than some impatient critics suggest in the light* ot a perspective applied by "Miss Francis Perkins, secretary of labor. Speaking before the American Federation of Labor convention. this skillful lady, hardly raising her voice above a conversational tone, pictured the swift action o" the administration simply by describing the four-year program laid down in a conference *hich she held with labor leaders March 31. "It "was a longtime program as \ve tbot in our innocence then/' she said. Makes Recommendations Preparing for a long-time pull, the labor advisory conference called by Miss Perkins, made the following recommendations: 1. Dirtct unemployment relief by the federal government. 2. Care that federal relief not lie used as a subsidy for sweatshop labor by serving to eke out wages below the line of actual subsistence. 3. Public works building. 4. Abolition oC child labor | o. Utiliza:ion of public buildings j for schools for the unemployed, (nothing done to this date). \ * 6. Drastic limitations of hours of labor—(this recommendation •was made with reference to the then pending Black 30-hour week; bill which was replaced by the national recovery measure). 7. Better -wage rates. 8. Industrial boards to fix a bottom for wages. j 9. Stipulation in goveinment supply contracts fixing hours and xvages by the department of labor. 10. Recognition of the right of collective bargaining and of em- ployes to be represented by persons of their own choosing in negotiations with employers. Platform Now Antiquated These were the objectives of labor on the last day of March. It was hoped that during the Roosevelt term all of them would be on the way to realization. The platform reads like .a sheaf from 19th century history. Meantime General Hugh Johnson has become as much of a universal figure as Lindbergh. NRA are Initials that even children know. The blue eagle has been added to the nation's aviary. Secretary Tcfces has "become the spender of $3,300,000.000 in public works money. Harry L. Hopkins as relief administrator has b«en directed to buy millions of dollars worth of food for the unemployed. Almost every major industry has been placed -under a code fixing hours, wages and abolishing child labor, These activities are being handled thru machinery not even dreamed of by most labor and political leaders last March. Then congress and labor were pressing for the Black bill -which fixed a flat 30-hour week. All except the inner Roosevelt circle, were still thinking in terms of «traight-out laws which would be administered by some cabinet officer after the traditional manner. The thot of set ting up a virtual industrial dictator, who would summon employers to Washington and threaten to "sock them on the nose" if they didn't come across, who would wring from them written agreements or codes which would go into the whole field, of competitive trade practices was still an academic dream. Except that the academicians who were dreaming it happened to hare President Roose- rlt in their corner. Whatever the results, the mere fact of having set up these vast government organizations within a few months becomes one of the most astonding .achieve. merits in spee'Sy statecraft. At least that is the way those who sat in on that March 31 conference back in the old days, seem to feel about it. Broadway Beauty Seeks Annulment Keeps Nerve Smartly dressed and cheerful, Katherine Kelly, wife of "Machine Gun" Kelly, stepped from the plane carrying her from Memphis to jail in Oklahoma City and greeted her mate with, "Hello, sweetheart, keep your lip shut," according to federal officers. She is shown here as she was photographed at the start of the flight. Strong Upturn Revealed in la. Re-employment DES MOINES, &£)— A strong pturn in food products, iron am teel and paper products industr es In Iowa brought an increase o .2 per cent in employment fo he month over July, State Labo :o_im!ssioner Frank E. Wenig an nounced Thursday. Compliance with provisions of he NRA has shown many firms perating full time that formerly iperated only on a part-time basis, Wenig said. Of the total gain of 1,660 persons who were returned to pay- oils during the month, 1,169 were men and 491 women, Wenig's re>ort showed. This reprinted an ncrease of 5.7 workers for each firm reporting he said, Burlington, with an employment ncrease of 12 per cent led the list of Iowa's leading cities, the report XX P. Majority [n Iowa Senate Mothers Herring DBS MOINES. (LIE)—Both demo- rats and republicans face puzzling lilemmas on their future campagln trategy in Iowa, it appeared Thursday. Gov. Clyde L. Herring and other democratic leaders pondered the dvisability of a special sessio^ in which their state governmental re- rganizitioj plans were" cert In of severe political criticism and pos- ible defeat at the hands of a republican senate majority. On the other hand, if the session s indefinitely postponed, Iowa's ancient, but "bone-dry" liquor laws will be left in effect after repeal of the 18th amendment. There also are a number of othr- pressing matters for legislative attention such as coordination of state banking, insurance and securities acts with federal statutes. Republican chieftains were faced with tie problem of determining what stand to-take on the administration's . reorganization plans Three reform measures already In effect, bringing about centralized auditing of all public funds and state budget control, have? proved to be successful'' economy acts state officers say. , Some G.,O; P. leaders^ realizing that the tremendous 1932 pressure of the electorate for economy hat not abated, doubt the wisdom •, of objecting.-too strenuously.-to the administration's - eeqnomy-reorgani zation plan. Therefore they may allow the democrats to show the voters some results from democratic rule in the 1934 campaign rather than burden republican shoulders with blame for possible failure of dem ocratic statesmanship. Questions which democrats and republicans alike hoped to clarify in the Benton-Tama district specia election Tuesday which remain un settled are: 1. The reaction of agricultural areas thruout the state to the dem ocratic regime. Has the farme reverted to republicanism or is he still enthusiastic about the "new deal?" 2. The sentiment of the public regarding the Brookings Institute report on governmental reorgani zation. Therefore both parties agreed that these' two points probably would remain unsettled until the primary r mpaign next spring. Since R. V. Leo's victory over M. W. Hyland, democratic candidate, gave republicans a 26 to 24 majority in the upper house, the G. 0. P. Thursday was said to be planning reorganization of the eu- showed. Waterloo reported an increase of 9.8 per cent and Daven- x>rt 9 per cent Other cities reporting gains were Cedar Rapids 2.6 per cent; Des Moines 5.7 per cent; Ft. Dodge 2.5. >er cent; Ottumv/a 3.9 per cent; 5ioux City 6.1 per cent. The two cities reporting employment decreases for the month were Clinton with a reduction of 6.7 per cent End Dubuque with 2.5 per cent. A total of 660 applicants at the state-federal registration offices received work, the report showed. A total of 437 of the group were men, 223 women. Seven hundred thirty five men and 395 women registered in the state-federal employment offices during the month. Seventy-eight workers were placed on farms. Fattest Baby? Utah Says So New Waterway To Aid Richest Farm District KANSAS CITY. Mo.. <U.P>— Com-: pletion of the Missouri river improvement will give the mid-wcat a gigantic waterway traversing the/ richest farm area In the world,. To heart of America industry and agriculture a whole new trade vista will be opened. Iowa, Nebraska.

To Kansas farmers alone Ver traffic experts estimate the Missouri development will save $5,000,000 a year in moving the Kansas wheat crop to seaboard markets. Gov. A. J.

The development will bring an increase of population and industrial development to the whole valley. 2.

Mrs. Cyril Reynolds, his mother, challenges the country to beat his record. Midwest Farmers Buy South Farms LEAKSVILLE, Miss. OIE'—It Is "Southward Ho!" for city folk and middle west farmers now. Recently the first of several groups of prospective southern far- ( mers, a body of 35 people, arrived | here from Chicago to purchase farms where winter's ravages would not touch them. The land being sold is part of a 54,000 acre tract near here, which is divided up into small plots. tire committee structure of the senate. This revision would include the sifting committee, thus precluding consideration of measures repub licans wish to avoid. It no doubt would seriously retard, if not eliminate entirely, the administration reorganization program and would give the republicans distinctly* an upper hand in consideration of tax revision. -•Si- Yellowstone Fishing Improved RELLOWSTOXE PARK.
