S. C. of C. Suggests Repeal of Provisions For Overtime Pay WASHINGTON, Oct. 28. (U.P.) —The U. S. Chamber of Commerce asked Congress today to consider eliminating the overtime provisions of the wage-hour act under which employers must pay lime-and a- hnlf for all work over 40 hours a week. The Chamber said the law as it now -stands "ini|ioses a penalty on the employer" and "tends to increase the price of the goods produced to the consumer." The Chamber's views were presented at a House Labor subcommittee hearing by Richard K. Lane, chairman or the chamber's Labor Relations Committee. The congressional group is- holding hearings preliminary to recommending revisions in the nine- year-old statute. ! "The National Chamber has urged in Its declaration of policy that, JJj£._Coi!gi ess , should ..-undertake a thorough study of the en- lire law and its economic effects," wild Lane who is president of the Public Service Company of Oklahoma.

One housewife who found the bargain store didn't tell her closest, friends for a day or so she was afraid the bubble would 'jo poof. But the news got around, including back to thc other stores. No. 2 store slashed steak prices to 45 cents. The business there was soon land office style. Then on Saturday stoic No. 3 went overboard. "Steak 30 cents" read the sign out front. The other stores followed suit. Prices on other foodstuffs skidded downward, too.
