WASHTNGTON, Feb. 19—(UP)— Thurman Arnold, assistant attor-' ney general, the government's No. trust-buster, told the house judiciary committee today that labor union practices were boosting the nation's bill for food and housing, "of de- ense labor problems, including harges 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. In Chicago, he continued, unions have decreed that cement must 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 costs than in places where modern methods are used.

Unions Are Blamed For Hike In Prices He testified at the opening he committee's investigation of Grocery Chains Have Huge Scope WASHINGTON, Feb. 19—(AP)— A study which said that corporate jrocery chains now retailed ap- >roximately 40 per cent of all food iroducts sold through retail out- ets was made public today by the Temperance National Economic Committee. It was prepared for the committee by A. C. Hoffman. He reported hat five leading firms slaughtered and distributed more than two .birds of the nation's livestock sup- )ly, while the three largest firms in the dairy products field distributed 21 per cent of the nation's >utter, 44 per cent of its canned milk and 63 per cent of its cheese. Hoffman described as "imprac- icable and unwise" efforts to restrict the growth of mass distribution of food products in favor of the independent food merchant, asserting that "mass distribution has advantages from the standpoint of reducing food costs which are clear and incontrovertible." Russian Jailed As Propagandist HAVANA, Feb. 19—(AP)—Samuel Gurinsky, a Russian shoemaker. was detained Guantanamo today by pending police at investiga- .ion of charges that he attempted to spread totalitarian propaganda among sailors from the near-by United States naval base. Guryinsky was seized last night, the Guantanamo police chief reported at the request of U. S. mili- ary police who were on duty in the town during the presence of several hundred American sailors. The shoemaker, it was said, addressed a group of sailors at a 'under a decree last week, Pres. Fulgencio Batista ordered Cuban police to watch any suspected to- alitarian activities and took-other steps described as moves to defend democracy. o Kunming, China, and Rangoon, Burma, are now connected by a thrice-weekly air service. Five weddings were solemnized in one family in one day recently m a church in Hedemark, Norway. of a strong congressional movement for enactment of legislation to outlaw strikes in defense industries. It has before it several bills to accomplish this purpose and to curtail union activities generally. Administrative defense chieftains have denied that labor disputes were having an appreciable effect on defense production and apparently are seeking to head off passage of restrictive legislation. Coincidentally, Edward A. O'Neal, president of the American Farm Bureau Federation, tonight made public an open letter to President Roosevelt calling for continued antitrust law prosecutions of labor organizations. Arnold's testimony followed in general the lines of his remarks last week before the federal monopoly committee. As in last week's appearance, he told the house committee he was not prepared to propose revision of antitrust laws in order to bring labor unions within their scope. He said there were numerous other departments of the government more intimately concerned with labor problems than the justice department. He said the justice department's antitrust division, which he heads, has based its policy toward Jabor unions on the belief that four types of practices come under provisions 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 a 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 fourth 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 Dan Tracy, assistant secretary of labor, is under indictment in San Francisco. Tracy is president of the AFL's International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers. The union and a group of contractors were charged with conspiring to fix prices of electrical equipment House Votes Solon Shifts WASHINGTON, Feb. 19—(AP)— The house approved today a reapportionment of its 435 seats on the basis of 1940 census figures, changing the size of 16 state deletions but making no increase in :he total number of representatives. The action involved adoption of a 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. AVhichever method ultimately prevails, California will gain three scats 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 Michi- jan would gain one seat at the expense of Arkansas. The bill was fought by Michigan members and virtually all the Republicans, inasmuch as Arkansas' ielegation is solidly Democratic by tradition while Michigan has elected 11 Republicans and six Democrats. o Lawyei* Admits 185 Charges PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 19—(AP) Without a sign of emotion, a lanky 54-year-old financial counsellor sat 'our hours in court today and heard a long procession of former clients estify they lost thousands of dollars in the collapse of his $2,500,000 investment business. The testimony followed a surprise-studded hearing at which Robert J. Boltz first pleaded innocent, then pleaded guilty to 185 ndiclments charging embezzlement, fraudulent conversion and violation of the Pennsylvania securities act. Under the plea the tall, bespectacled lawyer is liable to possible maximum sentences totaling 900 years. Judge Eugene V. Alessandroni ordered the former clients, some of them socially prominent, to explain their transactions with Boltz to assist In determining the penalty. Investigators charge that the counsellor while living on a manorial estate in near-by Bucks county and moving in wealthy circles, defrauded his clients by using their own money to pay them dividends on th?ir investments. Baby Boarding Scandal Bared BOSTON, Feb. 19— (AP)— Discovery oi a baby so ill it may die and of other infants being cared for in wooden boxes at unlicensed boarding houses brought an order tonight for an investigation of all such places in Massachusetts. 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. Rotch, state welfare commissioner, said complaints already have been issued against two Boston women, charging them with boarding more than one baby without a license. A bill is before the legislature for state license and regulation of all baby boarding homes. Miss McCann reported she visited one home where no identification records of the babies were kept and where the names of two of them were unknown. Famous Sculptor, Wife In Hospital CHICAGO, Feb. 19—(INS)—Gutzon Bprglum, the famed sculptor, and his wife, are both patients of Henrotin Hospital today. Mrs. Borglum was en route to the hospital to visit her husband, who is undergoing treatment, when she slipped on the ice and broke her arm in two places. Now both Borglum and his wife are being attended by Dr. William Jacks. New York City consumes a billion gallons of water every day. Mexico Gives Assurances MEXICO, D. F., Feb. 19—(AP)— Pres. 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 of 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 are being directed into channels designed to protect 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 enterprising spirit and their capital to develop the growth of Mexico's economic resources, as friends of our workers and of our people."
