Thurman Arnold, assistant attorney general, has «^^—- ^__ reopened a clos- •^^•* iHM ed case to take .^^B ••• another fling at an American company whose LAWRENCE DISPATCH patriotism. over a period of 37 years since its founding has never been questioned, but which today finds itself the victim of abuse and innuendo by the antitrust division of the department of justice. what constitutes Ibnr fnr some time has been a pohlem in connection with administration of the*job insurance fcw. The law specifically exempts Ijricullural labor from job insur- nre coverage. Certain large employers seek to ptiid liability under the act on the diim they "are engaged in com- serrial enterprise rather than in irriculture although they operate ft field? directly related to agriculture, it was pointed out. Included among these are large lettuce packing and shipping firms ind commercial tillers of soil. In few rases, operators of some firm? pnKagPd in those and similar fields have of their own volition chosen to provide insurance jrotpction for their workers. Permanent Guide Sought This, it was pointed out, results b an inoquitahle situation, wi13i Bmr employers paying for that protection and others not. The kearinj:. a date for which is to be pt later, is expected to result in u interpretation of the term "agricultural labor" so that the commission may have a permanent piide. to fo'llow with respect to coverage or noncoverage. An impartial referee will be selected tn conduct the hearing. The commission also announced that henceforth it will accept remittances of job insurance payments from employers without penalty where they are postmarked on the last day for payment, instead of requiring that these payments •ach its offices on each quarterly tod line. Attending 1he meeting were Sisk, commission chairman. end John Sakreson, Tucson, and Robert Hers. D. Kendall, Globe, mem- Testimony Given Testifying before the temporary national economic committee in public session, Mr. Arnold said: "Take our indictment of Bausch and Lomb. There is something which nobody knew anything about until a large amount of money .was spent in -a grand jury proceeding XXX "Before a grand jury in New York, we are constantly uncovering startling instances of German control of defense industries as well as illegal price-fixing among American concerns x x x "At least 31 industries producing vital war materials are awaiting investigation because we do not have the facilities to deal with them." Mr. Arnold was making an appeal 'or additional funds and for more grand juries and for more power 'or 'his antitrust division and added hit the antitrust division has a 'problem of economic preparedness which is no less urgent than the ndustrial program of the war and navy departments." Defense Measures Claimed It has become the fashion hereabouts for bureaus and government agencies engaged in normal civilian pursuits to tack themselves on to Lhe defense program in some way in order to get more funds for more jobs. But it is most unfortunate that congress is regarded as too frugal to furnish such funds without a campaign of smearing of patriotic industries and executives. There has come to hand today a pamphlet issued by the Bausch and Lomb Company, makers of optical instruments, in an attempt to defend itself against the smears of Mr. Arnold's department. It is amazing that American citizens, whose patriotism is publicly attested by the secretaries of war and navy, should find it necessary to issue such pamphlets. Says the company in a foreword: "Although the case has been settled by consent of both parties and neither the consent nor the decree is held by the courts as an admission of guilt, untruthful and inflammatory attacks on Bausch and Lomb's patriotism have persisted." Navy Was Informed The theory that"*mericans ^conspired with Germans to block the production of essential instruments which was the thesis of the antitrust division here is refuted by the company as follows: "The original contract (1921) was shown to the^U. S. naval observer in Berlin within a month of its "When war came again to Europe, Bausch and Lomb" notified Zeiss that it considered the contract suspended. Thus, to all intents and purposes, the contract had been inoperative for some time before the department of justice brought its action." Yet the department of justice got ts publicity just the same. The press announcements from the department resulted'in such headlines and innuendoes as "U. S. industry stocking axis war machine" and 'German monopoly on gun lenses ended" and "Claim Nazi, U. S. firms n war pact" and "U. S.-Reich firms accused of plot on war goods" and 'U. S. breaks Nazi control." Navy Knew Facts One wonders why the war and navy departments and their intelligence services didn't know all this before the department of justice acted in March 1940. The truth is they knew the exact opposite, that the companies, were patriotic. The secretary of war under date of August 28, 1940, wrote: "The relations between the Bausch and Lomb Company and the war departmert, extending over a long period of. years, have been most satisfactory from every standpoint. At this critical time, the war department has complete confidence in your company for excellence of workmanship, productive ability and patriotic co-operation." A similar letter was written by the secretary of the navy last August, but apparently there is no letup by other persons in authority in pointing the The various finger of suspicion, businesses involved may derive some consolation from the fact that there is nothing really personal or vindictive in the smear campaign—it's just another way of forcing funds out of congress by the new technique of shouting "fifth column." It's cnly one of a number of ways of pulling the wool over the eyes of congressmen who have billions to spend for "defense," and, of course, Thurman Arnold's division isn't the first to use the strategy. Motorist Held In Death Case Lee A. Smith, 44 years old, Chandler rancher whose sedan was involved in a collision with a school bus January 28, costing the life of a. school child and injuring six others, yesterday was held to answer to the superior court on a manslaughter charge, after a hearing in East Phoenix Precinct Justice Court.
