That is evident ly because the New Deal doesn't care for expenses, or else believes the credit of the United States 'and the patience of the people are Inexhaustible. Organized la bor as a mass undoubtedly de sires to do ft fair day's work for a fair day's pay. That method .was always fair to everybody 'But the unfortunate situation leads to the belief that racketeers have obtained control of most organizations, and there is constant trouble and unnecessary expense to get defense contracts 1 finished in a reasonable time. The railroads are having trouble and are going to have more trouble. The •workers re fuse to accept the rates fixed by '.the mediation board, and the railroad workers are also out against the figures outlined; so there will be a double strike on the railroads from every indica- jtion. The railroad workers wil ' strike against the pay allowed by the railroads, and the railroads will strike against the wages al towed the workers by the media tton board. There seems to be trouble, trouble, and double 'trouble in evary direction that i*e cast our eyes. In addition to all these strikes and lockouts and worries of get.. completed at fair 'prices, the New Deal is preparing, through Secretary Morgen- thau, to* pull a new stunt. At the present time the worker pay* one per cent for social security benefits. That la supposed to pile up a fund for the worker when he gets old. The employer lor social curity benefits. The proposed t bring to five per cent and the employer to five per cent. Then another thing proposed by the treasury department 1s that the employer Is to take out every week the federal Income tax* on the iraiofs of employes and sand tt to the torerament As ytt nobody knows how much that will be. In addition to that, the federaj tax on employers will be mote than double. Thus the muddleheaded New Dealers who are anaging our affairs are paying -twice the cost of other nations to get our defense program . through, and are going to charge employer and employes more than twice what they ever paid hefore in federal taxes. The situation means double trouble for everybody in the country. Five times the indebtedness ever piled op before by the nation, and the labor racketeers compelling everybody to pay double what other countries pay for what this country needs to equip it for war. With all that facing us, we aave the prospect that John L. Lewis and his type of labor lead- go are simply pushing the Presi- 4ent .into the background and taking charge of this country. This is something that never happened before, and never should have happened at all.

The chief executive also assailed a "misguided" few — industrialists and lenders of labor-—for placing personal advantage above the welfare of the United States and for delaying defense output by using their "economic power' 'to force acceptance of their demands rather than using established mediation machinery. Addressing 250 delegates representing 33 nations at the concluding session of the International labor office conference In the White House, the President said: 'The American people have made an unlimited commitment th«t there shall be a free world. Against that commitment, no Individual or group shall prevail.*' Declaring that labor under the naxi system had become the "slave of the military state." and that Berlin today was the "principal slave market of the world." Mr. Roosevelt added: "The American worker has no Illusions about the fate that awaits him and his free labor organisa- tions if Hitler should win. He knows that his own liberty and the very safety of the people of the United States cannot be assured In a world which is three-fourth* slave and one-fourth free. He knows that we must furnish arms to Britain. Russia and China and that we must do it now—today." Owtewt Held UMatlsfactery The President said the place of the whole western hemisphere in a German scheme for world domination had been marked on the naxi time-table, and the choice America had to make wax between realism "in terms of'three shifU a day" to pro- the attitude of the "blind and the deluded" who think that business can be done with IHUer and that American armament output is satisfactory. The President ttiststd the need he saw not only for victory over Utter but for planning for a better iMrld after the war. H* quoted from th* Atlantic char ter formulated by himself ***4 f*'i"«* Minister Churchill of Britain to to press his listeners bath before him and those over the world receiving the speech by short-wave that "there must be a more f-*"im1*»* life for the masses of the people of all countries," jtyimHng "improved labor. standards, economic advancement and social security. "There must be no place in the postwar world for special privilege for either individuals or nations. Mr. Roosevelt said, adding that all states great or small, victor or van quished. must have, in the words of the charter, "access, on equal terms, to the trade and to the raw materials of the world which are needed for their economic prosperity.' The President «id that the people of the United Mate* had so far been called upon for extremely limited sacrifices, but that they were, "beginning to feel the pinch of war." To illustrate, he said the workers of Manitowoc. Wis, had had to sacrifice their jobs and that rubber workers in a hundred scattered plants had had to forego opportunities for Jobs "that there may be ships to carry plane* and tanks to Liverpool and Archangel and Rangoon." Such sacrifices, he noted, were nothing compared with those of the people of Britain, China, and Russia and those oroccupied countries from Norway to Greece.

U 31 M Defense Program increases Demand For Farm Horses Reduction in Output Of Rural Machinery Is Considered Likely By William Frrrts CHICAGO — fAP»— DOUTI on the farm they BIT viewing the horse with heightened appreciation as concern mounts over the output of farm equipment next year. While the industry's quota for 1942 has not yet been officially decided, informal conversations suggest a sharp curtailment is possible. Work on a broad allocation scheme for farm machinery is underway in Washington, and representatrves of Industry are conferring with office of production management members on various proposals. Secretary of Agriculture Wtckard recommended to the special priorities allocation board that farm equipment manufacturers' output be set at 107 per cent of 1940 production during the coming year. Most manufacturers reportedly hoped this recommendation would be followed. As a result of the conversations in Washington, however, trade rep- resentaUves said a 107 per cent quota next year appeared remote.

Navy May Discard Its Convoy System To Check Sinkings * Armed Merchantmen Sailing Singly Would Be Harder to Track • By John M. Hightownr WASHINGTON — (AP) — The menace of German submarine raids to the north Atlantic ratMd speculation in naval circles today that a complete turnabout in strategy, subordinating the use of convoys, might prove the eventual answer to the U-boat wolf pack technique. The central theory in the various methods being; explored was that mass submarine attacks would be rendered largely.Ineffective it.arm- ed merchantmen traveled singly instead of being bunched in convoys. ipeneuti) of—me amgie-veseei strategy to outsmart U-boat packs said that its logical application called for a minimum use of convoys, the routing of ships over a wide variety of constantly changing lanes and giving them guns to fight attackers. That. It was said, would free a large number of naval vessels to patrol the areas north and soath- of the British Mos to search of submarines plying between Buropssm and their Atlantic hunting gimimU If, in addition, the TT. B. navy increased its effective patrol range beyond Icelandic waters by developing bases on the British Isles, the Germans might find their north Atlantic raids much less profitable. The convoy system, naval men say, was developed to a high point of perfection in 1917 and itlg. Its successful operation, then as now, depended on the submarine's great risk in tttffrlrig a group of ships protected by destroyers. Official disclosure in Canada yesterday that nasi submarines have been operating off Newfoundland indicated how the naxts probably have been able to find~their objectives so well after dark In-the perilous area west of Iceland. The generally accepted belief here is that the long-range subs off Newfoundland lie in wait, not to attack, but to spot and trail convoys from a safe distance soon after they leave port. When it reaches the west-of-Ioe- land area the big U-boat, by short wave, gives position and probable route of the quarry to a group of th* smaller, shorter range U-boats operating in that area and itself hrads for home.
