Still in dispute was whether uniform minimum wage standards should be aoplied to the whole country or different standards for different sections OFFER COMPROMISES Two compromise proposals, based on the house theory of making wage-hour regulations uniformly applicable in all sections, won a measure of support. But southerners, intent on getting a varying scale which would permit lower minima in the south, blocked both. They warmed somewhat to a proposal by Chairman Mary T. Norton I ‘D-NJ> of the house labor committee. who suggested a minimum wage of 25 cents an hour be re-I quired uniformly at first and that it be increased gradually. When the minimum reached 30 cents, an administrator would be empowered to grant exemptions from provi-I sions requiring that the wage be increased further at the rate of I three cents a year. She proposed to extend to five vears the time for attaining an ultimate minimum ware goal of 40 cents an hour. Southerners oblect-| ed that no definite time for reach-I ing the goal should be fixed.

June 4—(ZP)—Sigmund Freud, world - famed founder of psychoanalysis, is coming to London from nazified Vienna, determined at the age of 82 to complete his psychoanalysis of the Bible. Friends said he was virtually penniless and “had a great shock'* with Germany’s absorption of Austria. They said he has remained in the seclusion of his Vienna home, “dreading insults if he emerged—because he is a Jew.*’ Freud left a Vienna which had been his home since childhood, a city which he helped make famous as a center of modern scientific thought.

J., June 4—(AP)—Tall, gray-haired Norman Thomas, long-time leader of the socialist party in this country, was shelled by rotten eggs and cucumbers late today when about IOO men and a brass band broke up a socialist rally in mid-city military park. Marching four abreast through a crowd of about 500 persons, the anti-Thomas contingent shouted Thomas down with tho help of the band's blaring instruments and finally forced police to escort the former presidential candidate from the scene. FISTS FTY Many of the marchers wore war I veterans* overseas caps and carried American flags. Others bore signs J assailing "reds." Fists flew as I Thomas sympathizers and foes dashed. Mounted police, uniformed patrolmen and detectives wielded night sticks to break up the melee. I The temporary American flag-draped platform, on which Thomas stood, was smashed. , I Thomas, his hair and face streak-1 ed with egg yolks, stood on a park bench during a drama-packed half hour and pleaded for a chance to speak. Whenever he started, the band played louder, the yells increased. Finally, Deputy Police Chief Phillip Behold stood up beside Thomas inside a cordon of police and announced: FLAYS POLICE “On my advice, this meeting is disbanded." Thomas said later the adjournment was at the police direction— no* his.

DISCOVERED IN ARIZONA— Bv KIRKE L» SIMPSON WASHINGTON. June 4— TV-Iow’a democrats vote for a senatorial nominee Monday under circumstances that will make their verdict reflect voter judgment regarding the bitter fi^ht in congress against President Roosevelt’s party leadership. Whatever the outcome of Monday's balloting, it will be interpreted widely as a farm-belt symbol of the 1938 drift of sentiment for or against the new deal. The democratic denunciation in the senate of Relief Administrator Hopkins' intervention in the Iowa druggie reopened party wounds left by the court bill fight last fear. It thrust the Iowa light be deen Senator Gillette a court bill I At one stage, before the final roe, and Representative Wearin. | senate bramble to hoard th# .n whom Hopkins favored, into the    bramble    .0 board the ad- field of national interest. And it was more bitter, and more reflective of the party rift, than the actual campaigning in Iowa. Charges of playing politics with relief, and warmings of party disruption in November in Iowa and elsewhere, were dinned into administration ears by democratic critics. For bitterness.' intensity and drama, the prolonged uproar among senate democrats rivaled the court bill fight It presented the same ministrations relief band-wagon, the White House came within a vote or two of virtual senate censure for playing politics with relief. The aid of republicans and independents, helped anti-administration strategists, but more than a third of the democratic senators lined up behind a proposal to forbid political activity by WPA administrative officials, It was disclosed in both Washington and Iowa, meanwhile, that an ring factions behind Die winner of the Gillette-Wearin contest, or behind a harmony ticket in event the primaries produced no nominee. The strategy of anti-new dealers in dwelling upon the Gillette-Wearin contest appeared to be based on expectation of a Gillette victory, which could be exploited as a Roosevelt defeat to offset results of primaries in Florida and Oregon New deal political leaders who urged intervention for Wearin took that risk.
