12 PAGES TODAY tend by ovtr 25,000 Daily The Public Interest Is The first Concern Of This Newspaper VOLUME 90, NUMBER 267 Location Freeze On Industry Said Sought Fulbright Supports Proposed Changes In Walsh-HealeyAct Washington - iVPi - Senator Fulbright (D-Ark) said today he believes that the-administration. In Its interpretation of the Walsh- Healey act. seeks to freeze industry in the areas where it now exists. He is nppnsed lo such a freeze, he said, and for that reason will push pending amendments In the act. Thev arc part of a bill tn extend the defense production act bevond .Tune 3n. President Truman, in a letter to Vice President Rarkley last week, criticized the amendments and urced their defeat. The Walsh-Hoaloy act, passed in 1936. sets up labor standards, chiefly regarding wages, which must he met by firms contracting · to sell materials, supplies and goods to the government. Unless they meet these standards they are denied contracts. Fulbright contends that the Labor Department's administration of the act goes far beyond the intent of Congress and has the effect of preventing industrial expansion in-other areas of the " country, principally the South. "I am heartily in accord with the principle- of raising labor standards," Fulbright said tndav, "but before you ran raise standards in industry you first must \ have an industry." The Walsh-Hoalcy act "xcnipls ; from its provisions goods that rnav I usually be bought in the npen market. The Labor Department has interpreted this to mean goods ' bought by the government in the open market rather than on bids. · Since most of the government contracts arc on a bid basis the art applies to anything the government buys on contract. Amendments Proposed Fulhright's amendment would provide that the act shall not apply on goods usually sold in the open market to purchasers generally, even Ihoueh the government buys them under contract. A second amendment provides that interested parlies In any of the rules, orders or interpretations of the act. may. if they chonse.ap- peal to the courts for judicial rulings on any disputed point. A third amendment proposed by Fulbright was rejected hy the Senate Banking Committee. Under present administration practices · the Labor Department establishes minimum wages nn an industry ^r coast-to-coast b a s i s . Fuibright proposed that they he based on minimums prevailing in the area.- involved--part of a state, or a few states--but not for the country as a whnle.
