April 23— UP) -The United States chamber of commerce suggested today that revision of the labor relations act should be included in a legislative program to combat the recession. The chamber announced that its : meeting here May 2-5 would make a “searching appraisal” of the Wagner act “and of the possibilities of changing that statute so as to prevent it from producing further obstacles to recovery." Senator Burke tD-Neb), who has urged a congressional investigation pf the labor relations board, will address the chamber, the announcement said. The chamber made public a committee’s analysis of the act which said that it had “created a direct inducement for competing unions to seek to win away members from rival organizations through strikes, threats of strikes and other coercive acts." A message next week on monopolies—one of the liveliest of traditional American issues—will round out President Roosevelt’s projected anti-recession program. Some administration economists have contended that monopolies contributed to the recession by | pushing prices artificially high. There was widespread speculation whether Mr. Roosevelt would ask immediate legislation or a congressional study looking toward action at the next session. Congressional committees, meanwhile, studied the public works-re-lief proposals the treasury outlined a $50,000,000 per week debt-re-tirement method of getting its desterilized gold credit in circulation, the house labor committee sought early action on a wage-hour bill, and the house-senate conference committee compromised on business taxes. The president invited Henry Ford to lunch with him next Wednesday, indicating some approachment with an important industrialist with whom the administraion sometimes has been at odds.
