ANOTHER JANUARY THAW J-IYF/O, JAN. J6, SUCCESS Of 4f », O. PLAN." Tho celebration of the 20th anniversary oC tho advaac«ment of Daniel Wizard to ithe t pr«!ide-ncy of the .Baltimore Ohio Railroad Company, was a TOOst significant event In tho history ol railroads tui4 ibo relations between tho onanagonvmt and tholr em'ployes. The occasion was utilised by tho labor organizations of tho company to tender Mr, Willard a testimonial dinner. This was for a (two-fold purpose, to honor the imii-h respected: head, of th-o company bj which they a-re employ-en}, and to give- public yecognttlo-n 'of, their approval t tlie .labor policy by which their ·employment is regulated. At tho «wne stimo opportunity was giv-on to express appreciation of tho satisfactory operation, of the so-called "B O. Plan," under which tho -company and its employes havo 8U3tair,ed peaceful relations since tb-o settlomeut of tbo shopmen's strike in In tho addoMMS of President TVillard upon this oocsJilon there was evident a note of graUtloatlo-n In. his statement that "subsequent -events have justilkKl our tilth" ia tho -eflJcaoy o£ tho plan.

Without a lengthy written codo the Baltimore Ohio Pla/n has been made effective because ol the fact that it has allayed sus-plclon and promoted a feeling of mutual respect and inspires a srvovvlnR confidence between em- plo/tr and -omploye. To tuch an extent Juno the o.\ceUea\ciea of the plan been awopte-d bj both parties to it a-rud been d-Miionstrated in Us practical application, Uiat Mr. Willard described the labor policy of hiH company "as a stato of tiund resulting from the confidence the OEinloyee have In the inirucsg of tho manugemcnt and which the manasorneiit has in Iho fulr- ucss of the employes." In dealing falvlj \.ith «ach other the ytana^ei'ii'iit and the employe-si h-av-o s;iveu n i luroto meaning- to'the Oold- cu Kule Mr. Wlllard deflnea it as "tienthm the other man as you would \viih to 'o treated if In his place."

WASHINGTON, Jin. IU.---Although the Senate vutos TUurhday on the sugar tariff, it may be- said to ho the beginning and not. the uud of the uon~ trovorsy. Tho principle or p i o t r c U o n , long held In high regard aw a method o£ keeping out fore-lgi production, now has run counter to Another principle --tho protection of American invebt- ments In foreign ndustry. If tho sugar needed for American consumption were product d entirely -within Continental United States the problem would be simple 'iut tho Philippine Islands, which enjoy free trade, and Cuba which has- a preference as against other sugj-r producing countries, together gro v more sugar than Is needed. Because ol tho cheaper production costs a both thq Philippines and Cuoa, the beet sugar farmers of several American states aro clamoring for a higher tariff against Cuba. Philippine 5ndo endpnco enters th-a controversy because if a tariff w e j o applied against t h e Philippines such as is now appli -d against Cuba, it would tend to reluct) tho impoitation from the Philippines. Various proposals have beei, made from time to tirno lo ration (tie amount o£ sugar that should be ,illov,ed to come into Continental United States This was the original method used in war time. Philippine independence, however, as woll as any rationing of tugar production or expoi t from the islands, is bitterly fought by Ame-i leans -who have invested -aplLil in the archipelago. Somewhat thf same situation exists Witt respect to Cuba where Suiator Bonh of Idaho points out American capital has also boon heavily invested, lie declared that while the Cuban preferential d u t y was originally adopted as a friendly gesture to a struggling nation, American capital now "In alniost exclusively the capital which is producing sugar in Cuha and we are in fact giving a preferential to certain Amorican capitalists who happen to bo engaged in the industry outside tho holders of the United States.." TO this the Oubans make the answer that while American money Is invested iu sugar g l o b i n g , the-, industry gives emploj ment to thousamln of natives of Cuba whose livelihood depends upon a thriving sugar Industry. Senator II( we.Il of Nebraska favors a bounty similar to Urn export, debenture plan proposed last year JOT agricultural iiioUuctB generally. This is an effort io oaualiKe by enabling th'» domestic sugar producers to ge' a higher return for their production. I t \saa vehemently opposed by Pi csidcnt Hoover when offered beton tlio Farm Relief Act wis passed arid it is not likely that ho would lavoi arty such measure. A far as the Senate IK concerned, it has onco gone MI record in lavor ot export debctituic uul thero K (.OMWIeiablo sentiment m favw of tho b.iin» thing now for biKar Before it IH reached, hortcve;, t ii rfoiiato hns to vote on tho propoi- il to raiso the- duty on Cubuu lav sugar from 1 7b cents u pound to ' 20 icHts a p o u n d ni p i o - po.sed by 110 iJc-nutc VInance- Connnil- tce.
