LOCHNER (Associated Press Foreign Staff) BERLIN, Jan. 17.— (.PA —The German w'orker will hereafter be in relation to his boss what a private in the army is to his captain. Unquestioning obedience is enjoined upon the wrorker as the first commandment of a new labor law, announced by Chancellor Adolf Hitler last night, and effective May I. “It is the most advanced labor legislation in the world,” declared Minister of Propaganda Joseph Goebbels before a gigantic labor mass meeting. Under the law, if owmer or captain of industry is benevolently inclined, workers may enjoy a patriarchal regime in which the employer and the government, working hand in hand, will give him all material comforts—and even spiritual diversion. Freedom Can Be Banished The worker’s freedom, however, will be banished forever. If he disobeys, fines or other penalties may be imposed. In addition, labor’s time-honored rights of striking to obtain better conditions and collective bargaining are abolished under the law as are lockouts on the part of the employer. The law, designed to give the employer undisputed mastery over his employees, begins: “Within the shop an employer, as leader of the shop, the of- House Coinage Committee Takes Up President’* Monetary Program OTHER SUBJECTS COMING Appropriations Big Feature of Session; Philippine Independence Looms WASHINGTON, Jan. 13—CP)— The democratic congressional committee today planned to starting employes and laborers as his a concerted elect-democrats-to-, following, must work jointly for the-house move next week at a I nle advancement of the shop’s meeting designed to settle the ] purposes and for the common ad- chairmanship question for next fall’s campaign. Confronted by an expressed desire of Rep. Byrns of Tennessee, party floor leader, to be relieved of the chairmanship of the congressional committee because of many duties, the members are casting about for a successor. Many feel Byrns should be retained because of his prominence and there is a move to draft him as the chairman for the coming campaign and give him an assistant to carry on the detail work. The republican congressional committee already has been re- of the people and the vantage state. “The leader of the shop decides on all shop matters. He must look after the welfare of his followers. These must be faithful to him.” Council May Be Abolished The law contemplates abolishing the workmen’s council for wages and tariff arbitration. Settlement of all disputes will be left to the initiative of the employer. Minister of Labor Franz Seldte announced, however, that “a special ‘court of honor’ will watch WASHINGTON, Jan. 17.—VT) Senate passage of the District of Columbia liquor licensing system bill and St. Lawrence waterway discussion in the house today engaged the legislators awaiting a factory more spectacular monetary arguments. Two hours was all required for the senators to pass the local liquor bill with slight modifications of the house version Representative Snell, the republican leader, told the house—that was momentarily laid aside in the senate—that this country had better approve the pact, lest Canada go ahead with the waterway alone and exact tolls from American shipping. The interior department bill was before the house, but often the debate wanders afield from the legislation officially up. The district bill now' goes to conference for consideration of minor differences between the house and senate. Only one material change was made on the senate floor, adoption of an amendment bv Senator Walsh D-Mass) to prohibit the sale of liquor on Sunday except for medicinal purposes. The liquor bill out of the way, the senate returned to the hour-after-hour of st. Lawrence treaty dispute, with no prospect of reaching a vote.

Rejoicing that it was given jurisdiction, the house coinage committee put aside its dollar stabilization hearings to polish up the Roosevelt dollar bill. Senator doubters, meanwhile, had White House word that President Roosevelt obtained an affirmative opinion from Attorney General Cummings on the constitutionality of his plan for the federal government to take over all monetary gold before he put it into a remommendation for the legisiat-tion. There also fluttered to the capitol from the other end of Pennsylvania avenue the newrs that the promised request for over $1,100,-000,000 of additional recovery program funds for this year will be along soon. Trailing behind a few weeks will be what Mr. Roosevelt has to say on stock exchange regulation, wrar debts, traffic reciprocity powers, railroad and general transportation questions and more government agency consolidation.

Germany's labor legislation hitherto has resulted from negotiations between federations of employers and employees. All this will be abandoned. Neither workers’ nor employers’ federations will continue to exist. The unit in each case will be the local shop or plant and both boss and workers will be compelled to join the “labor front.” Labor’s one chance of voicing displeasure or making its wants known to an employer, is through a so-called confidential council of workers who will advise a boss on matters affecting his shop. _    ___ I ior Hie moment, me senate iwuix to call in pinch bats leu or iu “Ljme today for renewed considerance    r    unman!    vee    nnvt    unuunn    •    _      . of Manchukuo.
