Unions Are Blamed For Hike In Prices WASHINGTON, Feb. 19—(UP)— Thurman Arnold, assistant attorney general, the government's No. 1 trust-buster, told the house judiciary committee today that labor union practices were boosting the nation's bill for food and housing. He testified at the opening of the committee's investigation of defense labor problems, including charges that labor strife is hampering preparedness. Discussing specific cases, he •aid it costs $112 more to unload a carload of fruits and vegetables in Lower Manhattan, New York, than it does in other markets in that area. That extra $112 will be lumped into higher retail prices for the fruits and vegetables, he said, b Chicago, he continued, unions have decreed that cement mnst be mixed in "puddles" instead of in cement mixers. Preservation of obsolete labor methods in this manner, he said, is reflected in greater housing construction cost* than in places where modern methods are used.

It was prepared for the committee by A. C. Hoffman.

IS— (AP)— The house approved today a reapportionment of its 435 seats on the basis of 1940 census figures, changing the size of 16 state delegations but making no increase in the total number of representatives. The action involved adoption of new formula for alloting the seats. If the senate fails to take similar action before March 8, however, the new reapportionment will be made under the method formerly used. Whichever method ultimately prevails, California will Rain three seats and Arizona, New Mexico, Florida, Oregon, Tennessee, and North Carolina each will gain one. Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and Ohio each will lose one. Under the old formula Michigan would gain one seat at the expense of Arkansas. The bill was fought by Michigan members and virtually all the Republicans, inasmuch as Arkansas' delegation is solidly Democratic by tradition while Michigan has elected 11 Republicans and six Democrats. o Lawyer Admits 185 Charges PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 19—(AP) iVithout a sign of emotion, a lanky 54-year-old financial counsellor sal : our hours in court today and heard a long procession of former clients estify they lost thousands of dol- ars in the collapse of his 52,500,000 nvestment business.

Boltz first pleaded innocent, then pleaded guilty to 185 ndictments charging embezzlement fraudulent conversion and violation of the Pennsylvania-securities act.

Alessandroni ordered the former clients, some of them socially prominent, to explain their transactions with Boltz to assist in determining the penalty.

Mary T. McCann, a state inspector, said she found eight Infants lying in wooden boxes under wet clothing In a laundry of one home, and six babies with various illnesses In one room at another house. Arthur G. Kotch, state welfare commissioner, said complaints already have been issued against two Boston women, charging them with boarding more than one baby without a license.

Avila Camacho personally assured a good-will excursion of Texas, Arizona and New Mexico businessmen today that any investments they made in Mexico would receive "every guarantee." Mexico's chief executive made the statement during a brief speech of welcome to the United States visitors when they called on him at the national palace. The interview lasted more than half an hour during which the president, chatting amiably with various of his callers, painted an encouraging picture of the possibilities of profitable investments in the republic. Gov. Alfredo Chavez of Chihuahua state, who sponsored the goodwill mission, informed the president that financial conditions were improving in Chihuahua because o) investments made there earlier by several businessmen present. Leaving the national palace, the visitors paid similar courtesy calls on Ezequiel Padilla, foreign minister, and Miguel Aleman, interior minister. Padilla, emphasizing Mexican- American friendship, told them: "You have just come at the time when all vital forces of our nation The work done by the human leart in one day is equal to lifting 124 tons a foot high. are being directed designed to protect into channels and stimulate activities for' the development of its economic greatness. "To this end we must encourage bona fide investments and look upon those men, who with intelligence and decision contribute their enter prising spirit and their capital to develop the growth of Mexico's economic resources, as friends^of our workers and of our people." VENETIAN BLINDS ed antitrust law prosecutions of bor organizations. Arnold's testimony followed in eneral the lines of his remarks ast week before the federal mon- poly committee. As in last week's jpearance, he told the house committee he was not prepared to pro- ose revision of antitrust laws in rder to bring labor unions within leir scope. He said there were umerous other departments of the overnment more intimately con- emed with labor problems than he justice department. He said the justice department's ntitrust division, which he heads, as based its policy toward labor unions on the belief that four ypes of practices come under pro- isions of the Sherman act. 1. Efforts of a labor group, either by itself or in combination with other groups, to impose and maintain artificially fixed prices. 2. Similar efforts or combinations to keep up-to-date, efficient equipment or techniques out of use. 3. Restraints of trade either by •> labor group alone or in combination with other groups to exclude from a particular locality materials made elsewhere. 4. Restraints of trade by labor organization to harm an established and legitimate collective bargaining system. A recent supreme court decision, he added, makes it appear that the ourth class is immune from prosecution under the antitrust laws. In response to a question by Earl C Michener, Republican, Michigan, representative, he said he believed the antitrust laws are adequate to meet the situation, however. Discussing various antitrust labor cases now pending, Arnold said 5an Tracy, assistant secretary of abor, is under indictment in San ^rancisco. Tracy is president of the AFL's International Brother- lood of Electrical Workers. The union and a group of contractors were charged with conspiring to _'ix prices of electrical equipment entering San Francisco. Tracy was ndicted in November, 1939, and ;iven the "little cabinet" post last year. He said it would make no difference to his department whether cases under investigation involved defense or nondefense work. and moving in wealthy circles, defrauded his clients by using their own money to pay them dividends on th?ir investments.
