North Iowa's Home Newspaper WOULD CHECK LABOR EXPLOITATION JACOBSEN ASKS EMPLOYMENT OF LOCAL LABORERS Would Have Heath Obtain Assurance From Contractors. By HADFOKD E. MOBL.BV Staff Correspondent. WASHINGTON, April 10.--Federal public building- contracts which will protect labor from "exploitation" was suggested to Assistant Secretary of the Treasury Ferry K. Heath in.a letter made public today by Representative B. M. Jacobsen of Iowa. The forthcoming Mason City public building construction makes his proposals of special interest to the city at this time. Jacobsen today had received no reply from Heath. "I am writing to ascertain whether or not those charged with the duties and responsibilities of signing contracts with successful bidders for the government for the various public building projects would, before so doing, get an agreement from the contractor agreeing to employ local labor only, so far as possible, with married men with families to support given the preference, and a wage scale the minimum of which would correspond to the cost of living where the building is erected. "I suggest a clause or agreement of this type to prevent the exploitation of labor at a time when thru no fault of their own, they have been reduced in numerous cases to circumstances of direct need and after long periods of idleness would perhaps accept gladly a wage inadequate for the necessities of life. "If you will so' construct the wording of the contracts to carry out these provisions, the funds appropriated by congress for public building construction would he so distributed to do the most good for the greatest number, and in so doing you will carry out the wishes of our people to the fullest extent."

"Portland cement," declared Mr Blackmore, "was first made in 182- and derives its name from Portland England.

In 1924 a cele b ration was held in Portland in honor of the hundredth anniversary of tHis event." Mr. Blackmore showed how tha stone was ground four times, then mixed with clay and ground again One part of clay is used to 3!4 parts of limestone. The mixture must be much finer than flour.

Sixty years ago, Mr. Blackmorn said, the manufacturing of Portland cement started in this country. The production between 1870 and 1879 was 82,000 barrels. In 1926 176,000,000 barrels were manufactured in thn 7V,ited States. Several features of the Northwestern plant were also explained by Mr. Blackmore. He said that since 1920 the waste heat had been used and was sufficient to furnish power for the entire plant. Acash loan would straighten matters out nicely now.
