THURSDAY, AUGUST 30, 1934 BLYTHEVILLE, .(ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE DF IEI15 SHI THREflS M Here's "Why" of Dispute That May Spread to Million Workers liV ItOI>NEY DIJTCHEU Courier News Washington Corre- sjKindent WASHINGTON.— What. happened In the cotton textile industry wa: • that NRA cul wages 25 per ceil under NRA code No. 1. Even a common mill worker knows bette than to expect NRA, sworn to re store purchasing power, to do any thing like that. When olflcia! approval was given] the Cotton Textile Code Authority's projxsal to reduce working scl'.cd- ules by oiic-fom'Ji. the ssorkcr earning $20 a week b?gan to make Sib and the $12-a-wcck man or woman hod an income of SO, and Hie $8 folks went down lo Sli- Thai was what headed hundreds of l!:ou- sands toward the New Deal's biggest stiikc. But you mustn't forget "the stretchout", an-equally important part, of tne picture. You gel "the Mrclchoul" when you're working In a mill and tending a certain number of machines and the bsss tells yon you must handle some more. Those strong enough to cope with ll'.c added load are the ones who keep Iheir Jobs. The industn and the Cotlon Textile Industrial Relations Board say there has been little of this abuse. But, more trail 4.000 "stretch- OKtf," comp':aiiit.s have been forwarded here by workers in the 1.000 American cotton mills—mostly from the south. The Industry's Code AiitherUy itself investigates the complaints and seldom iin:ls them jiislified. Bui t.'.c flood ol complaints was sufficient to lead Secretary Perkins and Chairman Lloyd Garrison of the National Ija- bor Relations Board, as thsy sought to avert, the -.v.rikc. to telieve some conccssicn involving the stretchout would placate the workers. Tr.e H5 per cent curtailment, order which meant a corresponding reduction in weekly pay envelopes, piled on widespread resentment, at tlie stretchout, simply bred another ol these big rank and ll!e outbursts— increasingly common in ihe American labor movement—wilier, swept ulong tile conservative national officials ol tlie United Textile Workers. Othrr Complaints Made " "" "Therelwerc'fjiher complaints that .workers were being lived for union activities and Ihat mill owners -.were torcing maximum wages for .skilled ami semi-skilled workers down to the code minimum, but tliere is little data in Washiugloi wit-li which to judge the seriousness of these factors. National union officei-3 were hardly loath to go Ing pathetic Icllers (o NRA here, complaining that ci'.rlstmiis was coining and there wasn't any work.

They had 10 wi!/concession.-, ciUer through a strike or federal media- lion—or else lose their jobs. The crisis came when, alter three rummer months under tne curtailment program which meant, two- shift, bO- hour operating weeks instead of the code's allowance of 80-hour weeks, tr.c Code Authority - proposed a SeiJtembsr-Oclober-No- vcmber program of four weeks at SO hours, meaning a maximum of 40 hours for each worker, and then eight weeks of curtailment, meaning repetition of ir.c summer limit oi 30 hours per worker—at Ihc same old hourly wage rats. Cotlnn Consumption Drvijis Now that you have some Idea as to why textile labor decided to strike, look at the manufacturers' side of the picture. Tne reason tr.ey must cnrUill production and employment nnd pay what NRA officials admit, are miserably low wages Is that the public won't or can't buy enougti cotton goods at present high prices U> keep Uis mills gcmg on any other basis. Cotlon consumption, even allowing for the normal seasonal drop, lias actually gone 13 per cent beiow the levc for the bank panic month cf Marcn 1933. Higher prices for cotton goods arc due to greatly increased ray cotton prices. Higher labor and cpsraling costs arc attributable tc NRA. the AAA processing lax an< many cases of cotton mill over-cap Utilization on which it is coiusldered necessary to return a profit. Earl ylast summer, even bcfor tlie cede went inio effect, ll'.c in dticlry was operating at pre-de prKcion levels of production nil 1 employment. Employment rose froi: an index of "0 in March to 09.5 ii July as the industry sci;ght to an licipatc the code, wage and hou standards and other prospectiv higher costs by piling up slocks o goods made at low wages and o l';ng hour schedules. More Woik lief ore Code Trere was much more acttiii cr.iploymcnt. in Ihat prc-codc per cd when the average working wee was around 55 hours, than ther lias ever been since under NRA 40-hour maximum. For the en p'.oyaiciil index, which covers mere ly the number of men and wome on payrolls, only rose to 101.6 Artist after a month of the ccd fell to 09.C in Scplcinbcr and was 94 hi December, when ihe Industry ejected its first curtailment, sched i:as been built around a descendant of the oldest tree in Idaho here.
