shortly after her admission Industrial Con trol Bill Machinery Easy to WASHINGTON June nght 1933 by United who will administer the industrial control bill repudiate suggestions that they seek to establish a dictatorship over industry The administrations first and chief object in this far reaching legislation as authoritatively explained is to put men and women back to work and J revive buying power This rseemingly mild and human itarian object has been lost sight of in the steaming controversy which brake into a revolt against the ad ministration when the Senate Fi nance Committee struck out drastic powers to license industry They were in the bill as it passed the House President Roosevelt insisted upon their restoration and the committee reversed its decision The bill comes before the Senate tomorrow The plan of action as now being drafted is simple despite the many details involved in application Inflation or the expectation of It which has run up prices benefits an average of two persons for every eight that are left worse off The two who may be business men or speculators gain from transactions made on a rising market The other eight as consumers find their wages and salaries do not go as far as before Eventually the benefits may trickle down as busi ness improves and more persons go back to work Until they do the average man Is worse off than be fore Until he is able to buy clothes for himself new dresses for his wife furniture for his house a new car business as a whole cannot expect to thrive in Administration opinion President Roosevelt is not content to wait for lagging wages to catch up He proposed therefore his industrial recovery bill as an emergency meas ure to speed up the process He has chosen revival of consumer buying power as the point of attack His purpose is to put more people to work by reducing hours of work and to raise wages To curtail hours without raising the rate of pay the administration contends would only reduce buying power It is here that complications enter Once industries agree to such a pro gram they are left at the mercy of cutthroat competitors who by taking advantage of an overcrowded labor market could undersell on a sweat shop basis The bills licensing provisions are desired for use against such in fact the administration believes the very existence of full powers would be sufficient to hold potential out laws in line In this sense the ad ministration regards the licensing provision not as a club over indus try but as a club to protect industry from its internal enemies The objection Is raised that this would nullify competition Friends of the measure answer that the only competition which would be elimi nated would be competition in reduc ing wages 24 GRADUATES PMCGIVEN DIPLOMAS
