Dissension Arises Over Compromise Offer By Thomas WASHINGTON, June A tacit warning by a group of South- ern senators that they would fill- buster against a new wage-hour proposal tonight worried congres- sional leaders who had hoped to dispose of the complex question quickly and adjourn by Saturday. It appeared doubtful whether their hopes would materialize. HOLIf OWN CAUCUS Before the southerners spoke, the wage-hounproposal, which was of- fered as a compromise, has appear- ed likely to break the deadlock be- tween senate and house providing for a seven-year delay before im- posing a flat 40-cent minimum wage the country over. The sug- gestion has attracted wide support. Chairman Thomas (D-Utah) o! the senate labor committee brought It out as a composite of suggestions that had been made. But the Southerners, realizing themselves outvoted in the cmter- ence committee, held a caucus of their own. They were inclined to favor those portions of thj Thomas scheme which provided for a 25- cent wage the first year.' 21 1-2 cents the- second and scales fixed upon the recommendation of indus- trial boards the next five years. But objection was raised by cer- tain of the Southerners to the pro- vision for a country-wide scale of 40 cents after the seventh year. Quick- ly, they made It plain the price of such an arrangement would be a long delay in ending the session. The report of the conference committee must go to both senate and house for debate and approval. RIGIDITY VS.-" ELASTICITY "There will be full discussion In Senator Eilender (D- La) remarked ominously. The conference by Southern sena- tors was attended by senators El- lender ID-LH) and Pepper members of the conference commit- tee, and senators Andrews Bankhead Conntilly (D- Overtoil (D-La) Byrnes (D- Smith (D-SO, and Russell One of the important issues be- fore the senate-house conferees Is rigidity vs. elasticity. As passed by the senate, the wage-hour bill pro- posed a 40-cent minimum wage to be administered by a board empow- ered to grant exemptions, while the house measure called for rigid im- position of minima advancing from 25 cents an hour the first year to 10 cents after the third. By flatly applying wage minima the first two years, and then per- mitting exceptions to the next five years, sought to win sup- port from supporters of rigidity and Elasticity.

Dickinson at- tempting a comeback after his de- feat two years ago, was adding to his lead over Rep. Lloyd Thurs- ton for thf republican senatorial nomination. MAJORITY FOB GILLETTK Returns from 261 of the 2.447 pre- cincts gave Gillette as many votes as all four of hte opponents com- bined. The count was: Byerhoff 579. Gillette Meyers Richardson 856. Wearin Gillette sought renomination for the senate on a platform of loyal- ty to President Roosevelt but said he would retain the right to judge each New Deal proposal on its in- dividual merits if he Is reflected.

Sena- tors Wheeler and Borah and other colleagues of Gillette in the upper house raised a. furious storm in Washington after Hopkins an- nounced he would "have voted for Wearin "II I lived, in Iowa." Senatorial criticism of "playing politics with relief" caused observers to watch closely today for specific election trends attributable to (he 33.500 WPA workers on the rolls In this state. The Hopkins endorsement also had its repercussions in Iowa. Gov. Nelson G. Kraschel wired the WPA official his "resentment" at the lat- ter's "interference" In the Iowa race. Iowa Treasurer Leo J.
