OFFER COMPROMISES Two compromise proposals, based on the house theory of making wage-hour rciulallons uniformly applicable In all sections, won a measure of support. But southerners, fntent on setting a varying scale which would per- mit lower minima In the south blocked both. They warmed somewhat (o a pro- posal by Chairman Mary T.

When the minimum reached 30 cents, an ad- ministrator would be empowered to grant exemptions from provi- sions requiring that the wage be Increased further at the rate of three cents a year.
