THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MD., FRIDAY, AUGUST 4, 1939. PROBE PLANS ARE APPROVED Government To Investigate Labor And Monetary Policy. WASHINGTON, Aug. 4,—Pro posals for an investigation of laboi conditions on the Pacific Coast and a study of the national monetarj and banking policy were approved by the Senate Audit and Contro Committee here and sent to an un certain fate in the Senate itself. The committee approved $50,000 to finance the West Coast labor' inquiry, which would be conducted by the Senate Civil Liberties Committee, and $25.000 for the proposed monetary study by the Senate Banking a ii;: Currency Committee. Senator SchweJlenbach (Democrat. Washing!on), who with Sena tor Do\vney (Democrat, California) sought $100,000 for the Civil Liberties investigation, told reporters the adjournment rush would make it difficult to obtain action. Previously the Civil Liberties Committee—composed of Senator LaFollette (Prog-., Wis.) and Chairman Thomas (D., Utah) of the' Senate Labor Committee—had promised the Senate to wind up their long inquiry into labor disputes. The Senate voted the committee $1)0,000 for this purpose in May. IfloSj in addition to previous grants of $00,000 for investigations that started more than three years ago. The Audit Committee reduced .from $100.000 to $25.000 funds to finance the proposed monetary study. Chairman (D., N. Y.) of the Banking Committee asked the monetary study to "consider and recommend a national monetary and banking; policy by which the monetary and banking authorities of the Federal Government shall be guided and governed." The Audit Committee also recommended $10,000 to enable the Senate Immigration Committee to make u study of aliens in this country, and the operation of the immigration laws.

Standing, left to right: Mrs. John Harbaugh, Life-saving committee chairman; Harold Itneyer, Ed Erickson, Ted Grubb, Dan Sharpe, Jack Lowman, Roger Schlosser and Leonard Boone. Word was received at local Red Cross headquarters that all the youths taking life-saving instruction under Dan Sharpe, Red Cross Field Representative in Live-saving and First Aid, had received appointments as "Water Safety Instructors." The course given by Mr. Sharpe ncluded thirty hours of intensive training at the Municipal Pool. Subjects covered were the teaching of swimming, diving, ijfe-sav- ing, boating, and water safety. Mr. Sharpe stated that the Red Cross is stressing the teaching of swimming and personal safety in the water rather than the teaching of life-saving in an effort to reduce the eight thousand drownings which occur every year. The newly appointed instructor must renew the requirements each two years and must teach at least one class every year in order to keep their present rank. The course was sponsored by the local Red Cross office, Miss Gertrude Skiles, secretary, and Mrs. John Harbaugh, life-saving chairman.

Leader Tells Of Class Struggle" Under Way In This Country. SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 4 (/P).— Harry Bridges declared at his deportation hearing Thursday a "class struggle" was underway in the United States and ''workers are being shot down on picket lines all over the country." Then, as the Australian-born CIO labor leader stepped down from the stand he picked up a newspaper and pointed to bold headlines reading "troops rush to battle zone—4 shot in strike." The story was about Gov. Ralph L. Carr of Colorado proclaiming a state of insurrection existed in the Green Mountain dam strike zone after four union sympathizers were shot and wounded. The government is attempting to deport Bridges on the contention he is a Communist and that Communists advocate overthrow of government by violence. Bridges is head of West Coast maritime workers. "Is there a class struggle?" Thomas B. Shoemaker, chief of the government's counsel, asked the defendant. 'Very definite. On the one hand are the large corporate interests; •in the other hand are the working people, the small business people and the small farmers and such as that." Shoemaker inquired whether Bridges thought the struggle "can ever be amicably settled?" The witness replied he thought if the employers would agree to "give a little," amicable settlement could be arranged. Asked whether he thought the "class sti-uggle" situation would result in open hostility with bloodshed, Bridges answered: "Certainly, it results in bloodshed, but the blood is usually ours." 'I mean, do you think it will eventually result in a class war which means gas, guns and bloodshed?" Shoemaker asked. "1 am not passing opinions," Bridges continued. "I am stating that right now workers are being shot down on picket lines all over the country. With the employers organized nationally, the weakness of the unions is that they are not organized nationally. * * * "I've never found any worker yet who found any pleasure in facing jayouets and tear gas. * * * Right low people are being shot down and not for revolutionary activities but for picketing and for legitimate union aims. That's what I'm concerned about, not what's going to happen 30 or 40 years from now." Bridges declared the Email farmer had been virtually eliminated and SO per cent of the farms in California were owned by large banker-farmer corporations. Bridges summarized his statements by saying: "When the workers come to me for answers to their problems I don't tell the workers to wait 30 years and we'll have a revolution. I've got to figure a way for them to get a couple of "nickels more a clay right now." = MAPLEVILLE LETTER Philip Caruso. 21 (bottom), was) identified by the victim of a New; York robbery as the holdup-man j and in April entered Sins Sins to j serve a in to 2fl-year sentence.

BED TRAYS & BACK RESTS HARRY S. MYERS 53 North Potomac Street Water/Supply Low 1 ' In City Reservoir While most sections of Washington county have benefited by occasional rains the Edgemont watershed has been almost completely devoid of precipitation and as a consequence the mountain reservoir is at the lowest point in the past 20 years, Supt. Albert Heard reported yesterday there are only 15,000,000 gallons of water in the reservoir which normally holds more than 100 million gallons. The Smithsburg reservoir continues full, however, as a reserve in the event of a breakdown at the Williamsport pumping station. Hagerstown is daily consuming about five million gallons of water, all of which is being pumped from the Potomac river. The emergency supply at Smithsburg would last several days. Only Smithsburg and consumers along the Cavetown pike as far as Bridgeport are getting mountain water. WHITE GIRL KILLED SALISBURY.
