PRESIDENT TO GET ALL DATA EJECT 'SMALL BUSINESS MAN' By LYLE C. WILSON United Press Slaff Correspondent WASHINGTON, Feb. 4.--Representatives of the Administration's small business men's conference will report to President Roosevelt today on a scries of substantially anti-New Deal resolutions adopted in two uproarious sessions. The businessmen--numbering up to 1,000--have scattered to their homes after, discussing recession remedies. Behind them they left a committee of 11 men who spent last night compiling a report on proceedings which will be submitted to Mr. Roosevelt today. Politicians got considerably more than a U ugh from proceedings which undoubtedly had funny moments. One observer, jerking thumb in the direction of Secretary of Commerce Daniel C. Roper, remarked: "Snow White and the 700 Dwarfs." News tickers kept the Capital informed of progress in the big Commerce Department auditorium where the small business men were meeting and word passed around offices and luncheon tables that: '·They've called in the police now. "Another executive has just been thrown out of the business conference. · "One little man down and 10 to go--." But political Washington measured the conference in terms of reaction to current New Deal policies. It generally was accepted here that the conferees were neither hand-picked nor steered by Administration advisers toward the conclusions suggested in resolutions adopted In yesterday's final meeting. These resolutions will be the basis of the report to be submitted to Mr. Roosevelt by General Chairman Fred Roth of Cleveland and the chairman of the 10 committees which drafted them tor submission to the conference as a while. The conference agreed, in general terms, with several fundamentals of New Deal policy. The small businessmen recommended energetic trust busting, but preferred to proceed with large enforcement appro- pliations under existing law rather than to seek new legislation. They called In a variety of ways for further restrictions on chain store operations. One chain store resolution would almost destroy interstate operation by requiring that all profits be retained within the state In which they were earned. Mr. Roosevelt got general endorsement for his efforts to regularize installment buying, not only to increase payment requirements but to prevent the "no down payment" type o£ sales campaign. The small businessmen would not limit installmcnl buying reform to the automobile business, beyond -which Mr. Roosevelt so far has not gone. Dominating all other forces moving the small business men gathered A. S. Shafer hustled oat by offlcen As tumult swept tho "small busineu men'i" conference In Washington over allegations that the chairman, Fred Roth of Cleveland, had been "hand picked" by Ernest G. Draper, assistant secretary o£ commerce, A. S. Sharer, Philadelphia contractor, became a bit too noisy and after knocking over a few prea« tablw, wo» ejected from th« hall by police guard*. He re«ented a limitation on «peeche« by Roth. SbUer \M shown being hustled out. here was a desire for Immediate credit assistance. They complained from all directions that their legitimate needs are not being met by existing credit agencies and they proposed that Congress create new agencies, if necessary, to make loans on the collateral common to small operators, and especially to permit character of the borrower to be taken into consideration by the lending agency. The New Deal actively is working toward some kind of credit system for the little man. But aside from those generally approving resolutions and several- such as highway construction nnd Federal purchase of used cars eight or more years old--which were rather non-political i£ not not-controversial, the conferees let go a broadside against New Deal policies. There was neither word nor deed indicating Mr. Roosevelt was personally unpopular with the little men. But if the group gathered here was a reasonably fair cross section of small business opinion, the objectives of the New Deal are less popular with that class today than in November, 1930, when Mr. Roosevelt was taking every state except two from former Governor Alf M. Lar.don. They variously condemned or demanded amendment of the Wagner labor relations act. They opposed wage and hours legislation and proposed, instead, that the Government abandon "all attempts to regulate and control private industry." These small business operators called for n balanced budget, which Mr. Roosevelt has said he canno' achieve for some 30 months. The} demanded repeal or modification of the undistributed profits tax nnd the COMPLETE '/INSTITUTE / ' ' PROGRAM All-Day Session Is Arranged by Farmers at Mount Pleasant.
