(UP)— President Roosevelt, finding the rapidly increasing gains in private reemploj'nient Insufficient to solve the relief problem, announced today that he would ask coiigre.w to finance the federal work program until July 1, 1937. Point - by point the president checked the unemployment and rc- employment situation—past, present and future—with the conclu- .fiion that .industry must hire a greater number of older and unskilled workers lo reduce the government's burden. These five paragraphs provided the high lights of a surprise statement Issued by the wjiile House for publication 12 hours after Mr Roosevelt left for his South American "good neighbdr" cruise: '•—"Reemployment has been increasing rapidly during the last year and reports from Industry are to the effect that further gains In employment can be expected during the coming year. 2.—"Unemployment relief has reflected this Improvemenl In employment. From the peak of 5,316 000 unemployed families and single persons in January, 1935, the number declined 28 per cent to August, 1036. 3.—"Despite this decline a large number of unemployed remain on the WPA and other govemmuital agencies ro reduce substantially the unemployment relief rolls industry must hire a larger number of'the older workers" and the unskilled workers! 4—Oovlously industry has not jet increased its employment suf ficiently to permit Ihe government lo withdraw its'.aid to' the unemployed. Moreover the severe drouth of this summer required the use of n large sum of money which would otherwise. be available for general unemployment relief. : . :• 5—"As a. consequence congress will be .asked to appropriate enough funds to .carry the program through the fiscal^ year : 1937 (ending Juno Observers'^bcUeyed 'the "president would seek.a.SSOO'.OOO.OOO appropriation soan after congress meets ti continue tha WPA.
