PONDER CASE OF MUSICIANS 3 Employed in Night Club Are Under 16 Des Moines, (IP) -- Charles W Harness, state commissioner o labor, said Thursday he would confer with" Attorney Genera John M. Rankin about the legality of employment of 3 high schoo age musicians at a night club here under a contract between the club .and the children's parents. The young musicians are under 16 years of age. A precedent for their periodical appearanaces a the night club was found in a supreme court decision in a Sioux City case, in which the high court set aside a $25 fine imposed on a Detroit, Mich., woman whose 14 year old violinist son played at a Sioux City theater in 1930. The opinion, written by Justice Lawrence DeGraff, said: "The mother had a contrac with R. K. O. and was paid a certain sum of money a week The son was a musical prodigy. She directed from the ,wings .of the stage the act owned by her. The court under legislative fiat has received its instructions that (the) section- shall hot be construed to prohibit her from using her own son in her own occupation or orj- erations." Rankin's office told Harness last week that the.arrangement under which the 3 youths are playing in the night club here apparently came under the parental employment precedent set in the Sioux City case. "The language of that supreme ?? urt decision is pretty broad" Harness said, but he added 'that the attorney general's interpretation of the Des Moines situation aid not meet with the approval ol either Des Moines school officials or himself. The law prohibits employment of juveniles under. 16 years of age in a place of amusement unless a school work permit has been issued. Such permits are issued "P 1 / for work which terminates at 6 p. m. , "Â·* ,, QUINTUPLETS ^MUSTEROU brCHEST GOLDS TÂ« Promptly Reficre CwgMw Â·ad Make BreatkÂ»jc Easfcr At the first fligna which may warn of a cold-- the Dionne Quintuplets' chests, throats Â»nd backs Â»re rubbed with Musterole--Â· .product made especially tx prompHyreUeve coughs Â»nd sore throat due to colds, to make breathing easier and break up local congestion in tb* upper bronchial tract.

Demos Lack Majority in Lower House By JAMES MARLOW AND GEORGE ZIELKE Washington, ' (/P) -- President Roosevelt told congress to let firearms alone but he put no ban on boxing gloves. His announcement this week that congressmen may not serve m "active components of the armed services" advised the warlike ones to keep their seats. H was like saying: "Boys, you can slug it out right here because I m closing the door." The president spoke out just as 2 democratic house members were ready to/abandon congress for the army. His announcement will help keep partySines intact at a time when the democrats' margin o\-er the republicans in the house is to Â» d Â« l n Â°Â«Â»t. Disturbingly thin-thinner than any time since 19!Â«. From now on every seat in the house is one to be fought for and every favorable democratic vote will be important to the measures which the president and his democratic administration want passed For a majority, any party needs IB of the 435 seats in the house ine democrats now have only 217 the first time in 14 years they have lacked a majority. The other seats are divided this way: Republicans,- 208; -farmer- laoonte, l; American-laborite 1- progressives, 2; and 6 vacancies from deaths or resignations. (Democrats have a clear majority m the senate--58 seats to 37 for the republicans and 1 progressive--but since the house can Â· the senate by disagreeing it the democrats now worry about the house.) In special elections between now and the general elections far an entirely new house membership next November, the republicans to fill 4 of the vacancies. .-,., delno Â«rats seem certain of itling 2: one in Alabama and the other in New York's Harlem. That would give the democrats 219 seats, and a majority again, to 2.V2. lor the republicans with the ndependents free of the major parties' claims. .. * 'dear majority still vouldn t mean clear sailing for a toosevelt program. The house has been well scrambled for a year now with some of the most im- ortant Roosevelt measures still eft hanging. A majority party has this kind f control--besides voting strength -in the house it elects a party member speaker. He appoints arty members to the important ommittee chairmanships. That's he way the democrats are set UD now. v But if through deaths or resignations the democratic party were ut down until the republicans had the majority, would the latter want to take control by electing republican speaker and appoint- ag republican committee heads? Maybe, for prestige reasons and he psychological effect on the oters in next fall's election. That vould be the first time republi- ans gamed the house saddle since Hr. Roosevelt's election 12 years go. But congress seems a house di- ided against itself now. Demo- rats snarl at democrats. Some of he legislation the president thinks most important is getting nowhere ast. If confusion piles up in 1944 the epubhcans, holding a majority but echning to take control this year n the midst of an uproar bound effect voters' unpleasantly.
