W Wage-Hour Bill Accord Balked By Southerners Two Conferees Hold Out Against Compromise Try WASHINGTON, June Irreconcilable Southern faction held out firmly tonight against a v.'agc- hour compromise otherwise gen- erally approved, and kept uncertain the congress adjournment date. Whether the Southerners would bs content to vote against the new proposal or would convert their op- position Into a senate filibuster, which might prolong Ihc session was the question. ELLENDER HOLDOUT The wage-hour program was formally approved today by 12 of (he M mpinten .appointed In the house and senate to draft com- promise. It was proposed by one oi the three Southern members of the conference committee, Representa- tive Ramsptck and con- tained enough. concessions to the South to attract the support of an- other, Senator Pepper, But the remaining Southerner, Senator Ellender was quick and emphatic in announcing his opposition. Ellender Is regarded as the spokesman for a like-minded Southern group. In the conference committee, however, Ellender was joined only by Representative Hartley (R-NJ) In voting against the compromise. Because the program provides for advisory boards, Hartley said: "The blue eagle of NRA flies again." OPPOSES RIGID MAXIMUM Ellender opposed the proposed bill because it provides that seven years hence a statutory minimum wage of 40 cents shall be applied to all Interstate industries, except those In which such a wage would lead to unemployment. Special boards appointed for each industry would investigate to determine whether workers would, in fact, be displaced. Otherwise, the scheme called for ft rigid and unchangeable rate of 25 cents the first year and 30 cents 4he second. During the succeeding five years the industrial boards, under an administrator in the labor fix the wage to .be paid each industry point from 30' to Tne'ad- ministrator would be instructed to advance the scale to M cents as rapidly as possible. As a concession to the South, the bill would provide that during these live years, the boards and the ad- ministrator would take Into consid- eration local living costs, prevailing -rates of pay and other factors. Elev- en years after passage, however, only an absolute showing that un- employment would result could ex- cuse an Industry from paying 40 cents. After approving this formula, the conferees decided upon maximum hours dropping from 44 In the first year to 40 in the third. Employers would be required to pay time and a half for over-time. ABILENE, TEXAS. JUNE 9, PAGES BAIRD POSSE FINDS MISSING CHILD UNHURT June (Spl) Seven-year-old Juanlla Gallo- way, daughter of a California tourist couple, was object of more than an hour's search this afternoon in the wooded, snake- Infested area between Balrd and Putnam. The child strayed away while other members of her party nap- ped after a roadside lunch. Her track led to a deep hole In nearby Mexla creek. They were found as the tourists rolled up their pallets. Galloway sounded an alarm which drew searchers from both Baird and Putnam, Cowboys shed boots for more comfort- able hiking shoes and fanners abandoned their combines. Sher- iff II. Ij. Edwards headed an Im- promptu posse of more than 100 men. H was feared the small girl had drowned. Firemen were ready to sound their siren in 'Baird for more searchers when word came that Juanlta had been found two and a half miles soutli of the spot from which she wandered. She was discovered by R. JB. Robinson of Putnam, at the farm home of Jesse Price. It Is about 10 1-2 miles southeast of Baird. How far the child's circuitous path had taken the searchers were unable to learn. She was still too frightened to talk when the California party resumed Its journey to Houston. The hunt, Covering approxi- mately 10 square miles, was spurred by a black cloud. A driving rain began falling soon after Juanita was found. Mr. and Mrs. I. C. Galloway, whose home Is in Lindsay, Calif., stopped for lunch about 1 o'clock at the Mexla creek cross- ing, eight miles east of here. Two other children, one an In- fant, and two more women members of the party were rest- ing when Juanlta disappeared.

Senate Speeds Politico-Relief Investigation Court Bill Foe, Senator Tydings Maneuver Leader WASHINGTON, June 8. Ten senators sponsoring a resolu- tion for an Investigation of any use of WPA funds for political pur- poses succeeded today In a parlia- mentary maneuver Intended to has- ten action on It and confidently predicted its eventual approval. At the request of Senator Tyd- ings the resolution was taken from the senate approprl- nllons committee and referred to the audit committee of which he Is a member. WOULD SPEND Tydings and nine others intro- duced the resolution, under which a three-member senate committee would be stt up to hear any alle- gations that work relief had been administered as to "Intimidate, coerce or influence" WPA workers. The resolution would provide for the investigation. Members of the audit committee tentatively arranged a meeting for tomorrow. The Maryland senator is one of the foes of the president's court bill who has opposition in the pri- mary from a candidate understood to be favored by some of Roose- velt's advisers. Some administration supporters said a new Investigating committee would be unnecessary because the senate already has appointed a committee to study senatorial cam- paign expenditures, but Chairman Sheppard (D-Tex) of the existing committee said he could see "no reason for conflict" between the two groups, President Appeals For WPA Fund Hike WASHINGTON, June 8.
