THE BEND BULLETIN. BEND, OREGON, THURSDAY. MAY 24. 1945 PAGE THREE Bureau of Labor. Appointee Backer Of FDR Reforms Spokane, Wash., May 24 (ID President Truman's new secretary of labor, Federal Judge Lew-Is B. Sehwellenbach of Spokane, began clearing up his court calendar today before making plans to leave for-the nation's capital. Peering seriously over his hornrimmed glasses, the 50-year-old cabinet appointee told reporters that he was "just as surprised as you are" over the appointment. He said that until recently he had believed his public career was ended with the federal judgeship given him by President Roosevelt in May, 1940. "I suppose that I should be overjoyed to receive the appointment," the formei new deal democratic senator said. "But I am reluctant to leave my present place. I intend to return to Spokane when my service as secretary of labor is concluded." Conference Held Sehwellenbach said that he and the president discussed an appointment when he was in Washington several weeks am. hut rip. nied that anything definite was arranged. At the time, rumors placed him as a candidate for attorney general and secretary of Interior in addition to the secretary of labor post. In appearance, Sehwellenbach is almost as common looking as President Truman and dresses even more conservatively. A colorful speaker, he has a booming voice, trained in oratory. He was one 01 tne lew senators willing Livestock in Italy has decreased greatly during the war and some valuable breeds developed over a to take on the late Huey Lone in . period of years have almost dis- a debate and outshout him. A big appeared. man, Schwellenliach Is over six feet all and weighs about 200 pounds. Wisconsin Native A native of Superior, Wis., he' came to Spokane with his parents in 1902, when he was seven yeai-s old. He is a graduate of the University of Washington and served as a private in the first World War. He practiced law in Seattle from 1919 to 1935, many times representing labor unions in west coast labor disputes. Sehwellenbach was elected senator from eastern Washington in 1934 and was sworn in with Harry S. Truman on the same day in January, 1935. They became close friends. One of the younger senators elected in democratic landslides in the early 30's, Sehwellenbach joined their battles for President Roosevelt's reforms. He supported the supreme court reorganization plan which wound up in a defeat for the president in 1937. Backs Labor Act Sehwellenbach vigorously supported the national labor relations act, the Tennessee valley authority, the reciprocal trade program, and the administration's farm program. In 1940, he resigned to accept appointment as federal judge for the eastern district of Washington. During his five years in that office, he has made several trips to Washington and always on his return expressed satisfaction that he "was out of the maelstrom of politics." He said he expected to leave for Washington late in June after an important government case, set for May 28, is completed. He is scheduled to take over as secretary of labor on June 30.
