With Faint Damns By HERBERT PLUMMER WASHINGTON Sept 2 A newspaper wit observed at the time the white house voiced its re action to the Liberty league idea that Presi d e n t Roosevelt praised it with faint damns Should the time arrive when white house damns for the Shouse S m i t h D avis Wadsworth out fit become more audible the files that Sreat man of the Roosevelt 20 year campaign for the presidency Col Louis McHenry yield a suggestion as to how to proceed In those files it develops is a suggestion made by one Harry G Wexler Chicago attorney for sep arating new deal sheep from old deal goats on both national and state ballots next November It includes the idea of putting a brand on new deal sheep John Roosevelt Doe That name brand or coined word would be Roosevelt Thus the name of any approved new deal candidate would appear on the ballot as say Richard Roose velt Roe or Joseph Roosevelt Johnson Rival candidates even suspected of hostility to the new deal would have to run under their own unadorned names The Wexler notion at least has got so far as to be passed on by Howe to Emil Hurja who both at the postoffice department and at democratic national committee headquarters bats for Big Jim Farley when Big Jim is away from Washington on his frequent travels its an Old Gag The Wexler idea recallsa cele brated congressional election in Maryland some years ago

must ac cept the 30 hour week as a real remedy for unemployment and said the federation would appeal to the government for direct relief pay ments to the idle this winter In a Labor day appraisement of national planning and economic ex perimentation the veteran labor chief asserted the 40hour week now the maximum under most NRA codes could not supply employment for the countrys workers It is either mounting unemploy ment with all its tragic conse quences or shorter hours and high er wages for all he said Called Keal Remedy It is the opinion of representa tives of labor and many outstand ing economists as well as many en lightened and progressive employ ers that industry and the nation must accept and apply the six hour day and the five day week as a real remedy for unemployment The federation president proposed direct relief payments by the fed eral government in addition to aid through employment created by various relief projects In his address for delivery Labor day celebration under the auspices of the Wichita trades and labor assembly and the American Legion Green said Face Bad Winter It is quite obvious that we are facing our worst winter and in fac ing it we must firmly resolve that no man woman or child shall suf fer from hunger lack of shelter or for the elemental necessities of life Adequate relief must be supplied to the unemployed and their families and to our farm population who are the victims of losses of crops as the result of the drought The American Federation of Labor urges arid recommends that the federal government include as part of its huge relief program an acceleration of public works activi ties the restoration of the CWA program and the mobilization of public support for the moderniza tion renovizing and building pro gram provided for in the federal housing administration better hous ing program Controlling Influence The sound fundamental priu ciples of the national recovery act will in my judgment remain a fix ture in

Federal Relief Thinks High Will Be Set in February WASHINGTON Sept 3 prediction that 5000000 a new high be on federal relief rolls in February was made today by Donald Richberg secretary of President Roosevelts executive council The severity of the drought sit uation and the usual seasonal in crease in relief during the winter are given as the reasons for the ex pected gain Richberg denied what he called misinformation to the effect that the government is financing strikes The amount of federal relief pay ments which can be attributed to strikes has been almost negligible he said in the third of a series ot reports he is making to the presi dent on progress of the new deal Fsirm Prices Boosted In previous ones he reported that more than 4000000 workers had been put back into employment and that farm prices had been boosted to the benefit of agriculture Confidence that a very marked improvement has been made both in working conditions generally and in the handling of labor relations is expressed in the report Richberg said the largest previous relief total was 4560000 families in March 1933 Last June 3716755 families and 512701 single persons were on relief he added Relief Pay Increases Relief payments increased he said from 516 a month average a family in May last year to at present This was attributed part ly to price increases The report said retail food prices had increased more than 20 per cent since the low point in April 1933 with fur ther increases expected during the coming months The principal cause however was described as the policy in connec tion with work programs of allow ing the larger budgets which under such circumstances are necessary for food clothing and carfare also relief standards have been raised in certain areas particularly in the south where the average is still ex tremely low DISORDER THREATENS AS MILL WORKERS STRIKE Serious disorder threatened at Macon Ga where cotton textile mill workers walked out two days ahead of
