NEW ORDER OUT ON BLUE EAGLE Those Who Display It Must Help Pay Cost of Upkeep. Future display of the blue eagle will be allowed only to those firms which contribute to the expenses of code administration, according to information received from Washington by all code authorities in Mason City this week. To protect employers from racketeering by organizers of industrial groups, the requirement has been made that all code authority rates of assesments and budgets of expenditures must be approved by Administrator Hugh S. Johnson before a penny can be-collected. The order to the code authorities does not command that every firm under every code pay dues, but sub- stantialy leaves this government controlled method of financing administration the only avenue which may be followed. Industries, under the order, will not be required to, but will have the right to apply to NRA for approval of a financing plan, which shall be put into effect if Johnson "shall find approval by him of such a clause is necessary." Non-payment will constitute violation of the code, subject the firm involved to withdrawal of the eagle, deprivation of all other code privileges and expose it to suit for collection on the part of the code authority.
