   Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - October 7, 1933, Mason City, Iowa                                TWO MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE OCTOBER 7 11933 DANGER AFTER REPEAL IS SEEN Rockefeller Report Warns ol Dry States Being Home of Bootlegger NEW YORK Oct 7 Rockefeller liquor control study sounded a warning today that un less past experience is the surviving dry states after adop tion of the twenty first amendment will become a paradise for bootleggers Operating from there as a base the study said the illicit liquor traffic should not be allowed to run cheap inferior liquor into the neighborhood wet states for sale In competition with the legal but perhaps higher priced article Dealing With Repeal Dealing with the status of state regulations after repeal the report by John D Rockefeller Jr and made by Raymond B Fos dick and Albert L any one who regarded the bootlegging warning an Illusory danger will do well to examine the efforts of the Canadian provincial government to prevent invasion by American hootlegvjers selling tax free liquor In view of the widespread evils which followed the adoption of the eighteenth amendment the report said we frankly are not impressed with the possibilities of prohibition as a method of control even in in dividual states We believe in stringent regulation of beverages 01 high alcoholic content We do not believe that such regulation is pos sible under a strict form of pro hibition Laws Untouched Cities that repeal of the eigh amendment leaves untouched the laws and constitutional provi sions existing in various states the report declared The possible future success of statewide prohibition will depend entirely upon whether there is within the state an overwhelming majority in favor of this type of control On no other basis can it hope to be even moderately success ful Its popular backing must be strong If an uncompromising bone dry prohibition Is attempted failure to marshal a preponderant sentiment behind it will we believe admit all the abuses which have recently been experienced under the nation al regime Nothing Is Gained Nothing is to be gained by pass ing a law which serves merely to satisfy the consciences of those re sponsible for it This was the first section of the Rockefeller report It set forth that aside from repeal of the eighteenth amendment the twentyfirst also forbids the transportation of intox icants into any state holding such traffics V ore study added it was often contended the wet States failedin their responsi bility to adjoining dry states The outlook at present is for a reduc tion of the field occupied by state wide prohibition If in the end a few dry strongholds remain they should not forget that they also have a responsibility to the states in which intoxicants are legally ob tainable Plan Arraignment of Elmer Huckins on Federal Charge MILWAUKEE Oct 7 eral officials here today were laying plans for the arraignment of Elmer S Huckins of Cedar Rapids charg ed with

ministrator today laid the silk textUe code before President Roose velt for approval with the hope that its promulgation would end the strike of mill workers which has disturbed New Jersey for weeks With the cotton textile and wool codes made effective some time ago the silk industry was left with dis putes over wages and hours pre cipitating the strike of thousands of workers Senator Robert F Wagner the chairman of the national labor board has virtually held In abey ance attempts to conciliate the strike pendingfinal approval of the code Black Bill to Come Up See Move in Green Declaration Upon 30 Hour Week By HERBERT PLUHEHEK WASHINGTON Oct 7 sions of a renewed effort to resur rect the Black 30 hour week bill in the coming sessions of congress loom as the re sult of labors open declaration that hours under the NRA are un satisfactory Washington ob servers regard it as fairly certain that William Greens opening statement to the fiftythird annu al conventioin of the American P e d e r a tion of Labor that un WIUIAM GREEN employment will not bo eliminat ed until a 30 hour work week is es tablished forecasts such a move The Black bill authored by Sena tor Black of Alabama already has passed the senate Approval of the measure was given by that body by a vote of GO to 23 early in April In the house Connery of Massa chusetts chairman of the labor committee offered a bill of his own as a substitute for that of Blacks It was while this bill was before the houses labor committee that Fran ces Perkins secretary of labor made her first appearance before a congressional body On the Shelf Miss Perkins proposed changes in the bill which immediately brought protests from labor leaders Mat thew Woll vice president of the American Federation told the same committee that the labor secre tarys plan would make serfs of American industrial workers and hinted of an uprising of wage earn ers The result of the whole affair was that the Connery substitute bill was shelved What actually haltedlegislation was the fact President Roosevelt had his own plan for dealing with the situation The administration was eager to try out its own plan labors Eyes Alert Green or his associates have sat in on all of the codes drawn under the recovery act and have had much to say about the labor provisions Therefore his observation is re garded ag significant In our mature judgment our honest judgment he says the hours in many of these codes are so high that they will not absorb a single worker Three million have been taken back to work but 11 million are still unemployed While Green counsels patience with the new deal he insists hours be reduced sufficiently to Increase employment One method might be a drastic rewriting of the codea now in effect The other might be for congress it self to act NRA Officials Seek Answer to 3 Big Problems WASHINGTON Oct 7 Three big riddles freighted with controversy and involving vital points in the program of national recovery are demanding solution in the immediate future byNRA offi cials Retail trades proposal for minimum price control is to get Ad ministrator Hugh S Johnsons ver dict and possibly that of President Roosevelt by Monday or Tuesday Immediately behind Is necessity or the labor board to decide wheth er in arbitration disputes It shall require minorities of workers to abide by the will of the majority or make it necessary m some casea forc employers to arbitrate with more than one group This involves fun damentally the question of closed shop unionization hitherto re arded as banned by the industrial aw Would Reduce Fluctuations Third and possibly most contro rersial is a proposal rapidly coming o a head by which some officials hope to tempt capital to Invest in construction and new equipmentby keeping down wages for a period of one year with a mandatory in crease at that time and further in creases at stated periods later if the volume of business rises The idea worked out by a group of deputies and economists is to use the code structure to flatten out the building curve from its present series of booms and depressions every 10 years to a 20 year more moderate fluctuation Its backers assert they are not proposing to re duce wages below the levels propos ed by industries in codes but ra ther not to raise them for the pres ent to a compromise between Indus trial offers and labor demands Labor men already are promising fight however and an idea to re quire longer working hours than normally provided by codes is said to have been dropped The whole project has not yet been passed upon by Johnson but will be before him soon in the construction in dustry codes Will Be Presented The majority rule proposition in labor arbitration is to be pres ented to the labor board in the case of an Indianapolis mill where a national union and a company union both have adherents Senator Wagner of New York board chair man holds to the view that the dem ocratic theory requires the minority to be bound in industrial govern ment as well as political Further more he and several members of the arbitration tribunal believe any other basis will lead to chaos and that when an employer goes into collective bargaining with his em ployes he should not have to deal with more than one set of spokes men Yet NRA has taken the stand that the Industrial laws declaration that workers have the right to deal through representatives of their own choosing means no worker must be bound to go along with the major ity President Roosevelt has taken official action to guarantee the oenefits obtained by union bargain ing for nonunion employes specifi cally in the coal fields Roosevelt Not Convinced On the retail code Johnson has Held a series of conferences with his own staff and a collection of gov ernment economists He told them frankly that their arguments against the requirement that no sale be made except at the cost of goods delivered to the mer chant plus 10 per cent did not con vince him They left a collection of briefs for his study Next Monday the same question will be agitated in hearing on a grocers code before the agricultural adjustment administration which is opposed to the proposition vigor ously F R ASKS AID OF CAPITAL LABOR Continued From Issc D Myron Taylor of U S Steel Charles M Schwab of Bethlehem Steel and Nathan L Miller of the American Iron and Steel Institute Observers hoped that from the meeting might come an arrange ment by which the steel companies would agree to a modified form of union dues collection in their non commercial captive

once hum ming with activity and black with the smoke of busy mines and mills winter is really coming Thousands of striking coal and steel workers and their families know it and know not what The overtures of the operators the orders of their own organiza tions and the pleas of the federal and state governments all have failed Well starve first shout the disgruntled workers Few Have Money Few of the strikers have any money and most of fam little in the way of clothing The NRA madepossible more of the jobs which they now acorn but it also brought about increases in the prices of clothing and food stuffs Most of the strikers live In com pany houses while they picket and many of them even now live on the credite extended by the operators stores The operators themselves have been hard hit and cannot af ford to help indefinitely If the min ers returned to work the company stores would reopen again but this suggestion invariably brings that shouted reply Well starve first Disaster

considered Shivering Children Shivering children even as in other times of stress may gather odd pieces of coal from about the mines and mills but with most of the mines closed there will be little of this precious commodity avail able And so the strikers face the ter with little money little clothing Sj and few of the other necessities of fj life Will they go back to work fi The question brings
