BROOKLYN DAILY EAGLE, NEW YORK, WEDNESDAY, MAY 13, 1936 Hopkins Bars Spies in Ranks Of WPA Labor He Also Forbids Armed Guards,Followini Pro- tests From New York! Washington, May 13 UP) Announcing a policy of 'fair and friendly relations ' with WPA worths. Harry L. Hopkins today ordered atate Administrators not to use armed guards to maintain order and not to "spy upon workers." Although Hopkins declined to comment upon his order. WPA workers in New York City and Allegheny County, Pa., had protested gainst several of the practices now forbidden. Forbids Blacklist Forbidding his field staff to blacklist any workers or groups of workers, Hopkins said: "This Administration will not permit any discriminatory practices that may operate to work hardships on unemployed persons because of their beliefs, organizational activities or affiliations." . The order also said: "The maintenance of order is the function of the olcal and State governments, and if protection is necessary in connection with WPA activities it should be secured from the regular police force of the locality. WPA funds shall not be used for the employment of armed guards. "Where investigations are required, such matters will be handled by the division of investigation of the Federal Works Progress Administration. Communists Blamed "This investigation service will riot be used to spy upon workers or concern itself with legitimate organizational activities of WPA workers. No Investigation will be made or investigators employed directly by Stae or district offices of the Works Progress Administration." Use of armed guards at WPA headquarters in New York City and Allegheny County had been reported recently by WPA workers. A delegation protested to Hopkins that "apparently" the New York City WPA had placed its agents In workers' unions to report their activities, while a "blacklist" had been claimed in Pittsburgh. Alleged Communists among New York City WPA workers had been cited by Victor Ridder, the admin istrator, as responsible for numer- j ous protest demonstrations at his j office.

George J. Ryan has retired from this Board at the close of 18 years of membership, 14 as Its president. "My own association with him was only during the last two years, but they sufficed to exhibit his sincere attachment to the work In which we are engaged; the hours unselfishly spent day after day at tremendous physical cost and at the sacrifice of family associations and personal convenience and the profound conviction of the worthwhlleness of every effort to develop the characters of our children."

His tact will prove in- vaiuame in aenoerauons involving the Fusion board and the Democratic Board of Superintendents, it is believed. Of a retiring but cordial nature he has been pointed out on many occasions as a calming in-funence in high educational circles. He was born in Brooklyn In 1882, was educated at Boys High School. Princeton University and New York Law School, being graduated from me latter in laos. He has practiced law since then and is a member of the firm of Mc-Dermott & Turner.
