MOORE LUMBER CO. 629 South Federal Ave., Mason City Phone 119 P A I N T H E A D Q U A R T E- R I S UNDER TRUCE FLAG DETROIT, March 23. (/P)--Michigan's automobile factories continued to operate under a flag o ftruce today. In Detroit, Flint, Pontiac and Lansing more than 45,000 union workers, who voted two weeks ago to strike unless their dispute with their employers was satisfactorily adjusted, went about their tasks still awaiting the results of the conferences at Washington between President Roosevelt and the union leaders. Messages which arrived in the four cities last nigut and early today from the ' union leaders at Washington requested prolongation of the truce voted by the central committee of the unions at Pontiac Tuesday. "Union Domination." The posibility that some union groups, feeling they had been given insufficient assurance of action, might walk out despite the request of their leaders, was believed eliminated today after the latter reiterated their earliest request that no strike be started now. The advice from Washington that another meeting would be held with the president during the day led local union leaders to counsel their men to remain at work. The National Automobile Chamber of Commerce representing the manufacturers, issued another statement in which it reiterated that the point at issue is "union domination." The statement said William Green, president of the American federation of labor had "shifted his ground" after being "confronted with the plain truth that the threatened strike is for union domination." Green, in Washington, renewed liis. attack on company unions, calling them "worse" than no unions at all." PRESIDENT GETS VINSON NAVY ACT Bill Provides Authority for Largest Post-War Plan of Building. WASHINGTON, March 23. UP)-Authority for the navy's largest postwar construction program rested today on the expected stroke of President Roosevelt's pen. The senate completed congressional action yesterday on the Vinson Trammell bill to bring the navy up to treaty limits, which contemplates an expenditure over seven years for ships and airplanes estimated at $500,000,000 to $750,000,000. Final word for building most of the ships and planes rests with the budget bureau, which must approve the actual expenditures. The bill would permit construction of 65 destroyers, 32 submarines, 4 cruisers and more than 1,100 airplanes. Chairman Vinson of the house naval committee said the measure, authorizing the biggest naval program ever approved by congress at a single time, would go far toward "putting our navy in the class it belongs." Government and private shipyards would .get ship contracts alternately. Private bidders would be limited to a 10 per cent profit on contracts of 510.000 and up as a result of congressional inquiries into profits on army and navy contracts. STOCK MARKET DILI/APPROVED Federal Reserve Board Has No Reservations on Revised Act. WASHINGTON, March 23. The federal reserve board today approved the revised Fletcher-Rayburn stock market control bill without reservation. Gov. Eugene Black told the senate banking committee the board felt the redrafted bill was "workable, right in principle and will accomplish the purpose of regulating the exchanges." His statement at the opening of senate hearings on the new bill gave tremendous impetus to the drive for its enactment. Meanwhile, a statement that "mysterious back-stage influences" were behind the revised measure for federal control of stock exchanges--with the intention of leading this country into communism -was made to the house interstate commerce committee by James H. Rand, Jr., chairman of the committee for the nation. Opposing the measure. Rand said "radical" and "inexperienced young men" were advocating it to establish "a planned economy in which politically-selected bureaucrats will assume power that has belonged to property owners, stock holders and business management."

NORTHWOOD, M a r c h 23.-- ladys Nelson, 19, Northwood high school senior, was still in an unconscious condition this morning after she was critically injured late yesterday as she was struck by an auto on Highway 105, two miles west of Northwood, when she alighted from a car; She was hit as she started to cross the road by a car driven by Mrs. A, L.

PASS FILIPINO FREEDOM BILL Senate Act Gives Islands Until Oct. 1 to Make Their Decision. WASHINGTON, March 23. (St-The senate Thursday passed a bill giving the Philippine islands until Oct. 1 to decide whether they want independence. That completed congressional action and the measure now goes to the white house for President Roosevelt's signature. The vote was 68 to 8. The measure contemplates freedom, if the Filipinos desire, within 12 years. The legislation was supported by the administration. The senate rejected the King (D., Utah) bill for immediate independence and defeated the Dickinson amendment which would have reduced the transition period from ten years to five. The eight voting against the bill on final passage were Austin, Vermont; Barbour, New Jersey; Carey, Wyoming; Dickinson, Iowa; Fess, Ohio; Goldsborough, Maryland; Kean, New Jersey, and Vandenberg, Michigan, all republicans. AIRMAIL FIRMS AT MEETING BARRED present 8 cents per be established at 6 (Continued From Page 1) stead of the ounce, would cents. Meanwhile Senator Hastings (R. Del) said in the senate the administration canceled the airmail contracts "to add to the prestige of the new deal," but the people of the country were not convinced there was any fraud involved. Assails Administration. The new chairman of the republican senatorial campaign committee, assailing the whole administration program in replying to a speech last Tuesday by Postmaster General Farley at a Delaware democratic rally, asserted "12 major" platform promises had not been kept. A reading of Farley's testimony before the Black investigating committee, he said, showed he didn't know enough about his own job to determine what his power was." "He didn't know there were two ways of making contracts legally," the senator added. Shenandoah Not to Have CWA Airport SHENANDOAH, March 23. OB-Prospects for the construction of an airport here with CWA funds ended when the Rotary and Kiwanls clubs and Chamber of Commerce voted against underwriting the proposal for five years at $675, annually.
