'BUT 1JBCTII Df AMJS8 1IA1JUT TKlbtJWE TIMJBi. AXES. IOWA, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 10, 1933. PAOBHT1 American Labor Starts Its Second Week's Session WASHINGTON, (UJE)—Th« American Federation of Labor entered the second *»ek c! lt» 68rd annual convention Monday. Many controversal issues still'were to be fought out. The first week was devoted largely to committee work and sp«ecb- maklng culminating In *»» cddress by President Roosevelt to the delegates Saturday at tbfc unT«lllng of the Samuel Gompers' memorial. One of the principal fights centered In the efforts of Johm L. Lewis, president of the United Mine Workers of America, to have the executive council Increased from eight to 25 members. Lewis and the element seeking changes In federation policies hope In this way to obtain a majority 1ft the council so that their plans can get wider backing. L«wls was defeated in this raovt at the Cincinnati convention last year. The convention undoubtedly will go on record favoring revision of NRA codes of fair competition to provide for higher wages and shorter maximum work wwks. The 30-hour week will be mentioned specifically as an objective of organized labor. Election of officers and selection of next year's convention city •will be the final business before the convention the end of the week. William Green's re-eitction as president is regarded as virtually certain. San Francisco, St. Louis and Atlantic City have invited next year's meeting. t Red Cross Aid Is Provided in 3 Iowa Cities Red Cross aid to sufferers In floods and tornadoes was provided this year at Garner, Waterloo and Storm Lake, according to Prof. Bruce J. Firkins, membership drive chairman for the local chapter. During the year ending last June 30, the Red Cross organization furnished relief in 77 disasters in all parts of the country. Floods, tornadoes, forest fires and earthquakes left devastation In half of th« states of the nation. The first six months of 1933 were one of the busiest periods in the organisation's history. Water, wind and fire resulted in 426 deaths, injuries to 9.000 and wreckage or damage of 17,972 homes. In addition, assistance was extended In a score of calamities in insular possessions and abroad. Last year drownings cost the nation 10,000 lives, but that number -was far below what it might have been were it not for the 75,000 Red Cross life Havers enrolled during the year ending last June 30. Nearly 500,000 certificates, 69,000 of them in Iowa, hare been issued since- the activity first was launched by the national organization. SM CENTER STATE CENTER — Tee second and probably the last of th« series of novelty outdoor auctions sponsored by the Commercial club was held here Saturday night. Whether there are to be others will be determined at the regular meeting of the club Thursday night. Althc the weather at the week-end was not* favorable, there was a good attendance at the sale and bidding was brisk. More than 100 items taken from local stocks of goods were offered and the consignment was disposed of at prices considered satisfactory to E. E. Benson, who had charge of the affair. H. L. Hartwig, a well known stockman, and O. G. Wengert, a farmer on the Story-Marshall county line, were the auctioneers. Before the sale, entertainment was provided for the crowd by Evelyn Hamm and Virginia Adams, who save an exhibition of tap dancing. State Senator Chris Reece of Marshalltown played a number of selections on his violin.
