WARTIME LABOR SURVEY SUBJECT Post-War Planning Studied at University IOWA CITY--Passage of labor legislation prior to the defense program eliminated much of the conflict emerging out of the undemocratic industrial process during World war I. In a study on labor in war time with special reference to the -United States, James S. Youtsler made important summaries in fulfilling requirements for an advanced degree. His work is one of those cited by Secretary of Commerce Jesse H. Jones as contributing to the war effort. "To meet the problem of labor disputes, the nation has felieij upon the efficient machinery of the United "States · conciliation service/ .The national war labor board has brought about much improvement on the labor front," DJV Youtsler said. : He points out that there is agitation for the relaxation of 'federal an clstate" labor laws, with labor restrictions already amended by several states. Experience seems to indicate, however, that decreased production accompanies the breakdown of labor standards. "The urgency o£ post-war planning to avoid economic dislocation is generally recognized and is being ' undertaken / by government agencies, congress, labor organizations, and ' private institutions. There appears to be a need for centralized planning under the jurisdiction of one federal agency in order to prevent duplication o£ effort," the survey by Dr. Youtsler states. 20 Pupils on Honor Roll in Goldfield GOLDFIELD--The honor roll for the first semester of the school included 20 pupils o£ the Goldfield and public school as follows: Seniors, Audrey Hanson and Etha Schipull.
