Jaycees Prepare Cotton Exhibit Convention At Spa Hears Schwellenbach HOT SPRINGS. Ark.. Sept. 30. (UP)— Secretary of labor Lewis B. Schwellenbach charged today that the government structure relating to labor functions is marked by lack of "coordination, dispersion of authority and duplicating agencies." "It is my belief that those government functions which arise out of or deal with the emplnyer-em- ployc relationship should be properly allocated to the Department of Labor." Schwellenbach said at the opening session of the llth annual meeting of the Interstate Conference of Employment security Agencies. The labor secretary said there is no nrca of government where there exists a greater need for the achievement of the objectives of government reorganization than in those which deal with the human relationships growing out of n complex industrial society. "It is for that reason lhat I am on record and continue to advocate strongly the necessity for bringing together labor functions within the Department of Labor," he declared. Schwellenbach said that a strong and effective employment service can best be assured If the U. S. Employment Service continues to be located in the Department of Labor. The significant relationships existing between' the Employment Service and every oiwrating division of the Department of Labor, he said.

Bell Asks Higher Rates in 4 States 72 Cities and Towns In Arkansas Slated To Get Increases BV BO15 BROWN (United Press Staff Correspondent) LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Sfpt. 30(UP>— The Southwestern Bell Telephone Ca. today asked the Arkansas public service commission to authorize higher rates for local telephone service in 12 of its ^4 Arkan- .as exchanges. The rates in Hughes were lowered, but basic rates in Little Ho:'k remained unchanged. The requested rate increases. which would cost tl>e customers in Arkansas an estimated 31,2J'J,OOo annually... ranged from ; eight per :ent. for residential phones in cities having less than 300 outlets up to 53 per. cent, for business phones in :ities having between 1003 and 3438 utlets. W. E. Gosdin, division manajcr the company, asserted it would je impossible to give an exact pcr- :entage rate increase as the corn- lany is requesting permission U change its basic method of computing rates. Under the new schedule, all cities in Arkansas will be grouped under seven heading* according to" the number of telephones installed. ~ ities in each of these groups will 'x charged identical basic rates, a radical change from the individual .'at«s now baing charged. Similar applications for rate in- jreases were filed by the company today in Missouri, Oklahoma and Kansas. Chairman Charles C. Wine of the Arkansas Public Service Commission said ho has suggested that the four commissions hn!d :i jaint hearing on the rale schedules. A hcarins will not be possible for several weeks, Wine said. In addition to higher Incal rales, the firm also asked for higher charges for certain long distance calls within the state. In general, station-to-station day rates would be raised, five to ten cents on distances over 42 miles; station-to-station night rates would go up five to 20 cents; person-to- person day rates would be r.iiscd five to 20 cents; nnd person-lo-pcr- son night rates would go up five to 30 cents. Charges for some miscellaneous equipment and services also would tc increased, including extension telephones, some connection and move cliargco and audible and visual signals. Rural rates also would be increased but not lo as large a percentage as town rates. Gosdin declared that the rale hikes were made necessary because the company's earnings in Arkansas have been reduced to a critically low level by greatly increased operating cosU and postwar wa^e increases. He added that although Southwestern Bell is handling a larger volume of business than at any other time in its history, the National Cotton Delegates to UN -JckingContest Wr Plea to Stop J —Cotirler Nrwa 1'linlo Shown here is a portion of the "Field to Consume" rotten exhibit set up in the exhibit building It Walker Park by the Hlylhcviile Junior Chnmoer 01 Commerce for the clKhth annual cotton picking contest, and the Northeast Arkansas District Fair.
