Washington - (IP) - An Arkansas* shirt manufacturer'* troubles with the Labor Department generated new iteam today for some drastic chtriges in a wage control law. Senators Fulbright and McClellan, Arkansas Democrats, What Others 5av But, Mr. Gazette, why include Caplain Hrniler- in 3our rebuke? Don't you kno-.v HUM ha is an employe of th» Hlato. and hai tn follow orders nf the parole boarif and the governor? Why blome an employ5 for the hos.scs' action?. T'nc Commercial believes an investigation of the parole system is very m u r h in order. Pine Bluff Commercial! for it L»bor Department explanation of the row and faster .action on Fulbright's proposed amendment to the Walsh-Hcaly Act. This »tatute, separate from the minimum wags and hours law, requires holders of government contracts to agree to pay wages- set by the Labor Department and to regulate working conditions as the department directs. Fulbright contends the department improperly has set most wage scales on a nation-wide level instead of making them conform to the prevailing wife scales in the partleulir locality affected. He wants Cdngresi to redefine that provision and a!«o to "provide a more effective" method of appealing to the courts from the department'* orders. The two senators iaid they have a complaint from Bob Hill of the Bobonok Corporation, Fort Smith, Ark., charting that the Walsh- ijealey Act is used "to extort- money from those of us who have attempted to make our meager contributions to the defense effort." Sari Af Asked Hill wrote that the. Air Force urged him to speed delivery, ;,of shirti he had contracted to prn- ducs frr men fighting in Korea, without raising the cost to the government. Hill said he agreed, although it meant a loss of $1,661.19 on. the contract, through staff additions and overtime work. "At the time I thought it was patriotism but as it turned out it was stupidity," !i« said. Hill said he suddenly realized he had Inadvertently violated rules governing the proportion of learners to experienced, help called for in his contract, and notified tbt Labor Department. The. department promptly ordered him, he said, tn pay $675 additional tn the learning employes and $770 damages because one ?irl employe was two months below the required age minimum of 18 and another wat five months below the limit. He naid the department warned him he would be subjected to such costly litigation "it would bankrupt me" if he tried to appeal. The senator's -told a reporter they are asking the Labor Department to report on the case, meanwhile pressing for faster action on Fulbright's amendment.
