IN ALL STAVES OT11EK THAN r... 58.00 Emc.nUi But the Law Needs Changing pHE supreme court, with two new appointees . ··- dissenting and one refraining from the vote squared the Wagner act with the constitutional rights of employers in its decision on the Fansteel case It held that there was nothing in the act which infringed upon the right of an employer to discharge an employe for any cause "other than union activity or agitation for collective bargaining with employes." The quoted phrase is from the Associated Press decision in which the Wagner act was upheld--a decision in which the basis was laid for the reversal of the labor.board in the Fansteel case. It is already being said in Washington that the Fansteel decision shows that the courts will protect the employer in his rights, and that therefore the proposed amendments to make the act less lop-sided are unnecessary. All that is wrong with the Wagner act, runs this line of reasoning is its administration.. In other words, the present labor board is biased, but the courts will correct the balance. This doesn't look like very sound argument, a wo of the three new deal justices were not willing to protect the employer in his ordinary civil rights as.seen by the majority and the attitude of the third is only to be conjectured. President Roosevelt is soon to make another appointment, and may have more to make before his term ends It is hardly good policy to leave the rights of any party concerned in such a vital business as labor relations to the courts alone. - M "Vlf^ the duty of cm sress to define the rights of both employer and employe, if the question of labor relations is to be regarded as a field of government regulation. And it is clearly its duty to define these rights fairly, so that the dice . are not loaded. As matters stand at present the fact is--as a regional administrator of the NLHB was quoted as saying, frankly, in a public address the other day--"the employer hasn't got a chance .when we get into a hearing." A law so one-sided or so loosely drawn as to be subjected to such interpretation is a poor law and needs changing. In such a vitally important field the rights of any class of citizens should not depend upon the temper of administration nor the legal opinions of courts. They should be express- Jy stated in a clear and unambiguous law - ' J%£ Hf % 2me 1 d ae Wa ^" Er a* should be .-. ,.iis time of year that the highway +« "f,7;""" i ^ wonder ing when's the right time to begin removing snow fences. * * * There's surprisingly little to disprove that old American conviction that "that government governs best which governs least " * * » Now Spain has time to begin frying to figure out just what it was that was won in the war.

V. W$£ Shipley as one of the klnd- --^ est me n I've ever known. He was willing always to neglect nis own comfort and convenience lor the comfort and convenience of others. It was his way of life He never erected for others standards that he didn't expect to observe himself. Mr. Shipley assumed honesty and fair principles in those with M "J h £ dealt Jt was unthinkable to him that one he regarded as a friend could be lacking in these attributes of character so conspicuously embodied in his own personality. This trust, I am told, brought some stern penalties to Mr. Shinley toward the close of his remarkable business career. But I still insist it was a worthy traiU- one sorely needed in our present day business world. The real test of Mr. Shipley's fiber came after he had definitely entered old age. Confronted with distressing business reverses, ifTM 1 ? 1 easily have indulged in self-pity. But that wasn f t his course. He tightened his belt rolled tip his sleeves and turned his eyes to the future. Entering upon an entirely new field of endeavor at Ames he pushed ahead. He applied to his work the same enterprise and progressive principles that had distinguished him in the mercantile field. All he asked for was a continued gift of health and an extension of his years beyond the three score and ten mark. In any appraisal of the remark- OBSERVING 1938 and if applicable to our whole population, this would mean ( a saving of about 8,000 And that's just about the extent of the 1938 reduction over the previous year in traffic fatalities.

But candy as a food has a great many individual virtues and has a distinct place in dietary needs. The principal ingredient of candy is glucose (which comes from the Greek word glukus, meaning sweet.) Most candy contains other materials with distinct food value but sugar in its several forms' is so outstanding a part of it I that appraisal of the dietary values of the products amounts «",.=£?, P fj"£ cal P ur P°?«. to ap- by him in these past ten years--after most of us of less rugged stuff would have sought refuge in self-pity.
