Creston News Advertiser (Newspaper) - July 23, 1938, Creston, Iowa Complete Rural service by mail daily carried service in 22 town a Southwest Iowa a greatest daily 59th 100. Six pages Creston Iowa saturday july 23, 1938. Published every evening except sunday. Three cents current comment by f. C. T. The third term. The statement by Harry Hopkins that ninety percent of the voters on Public Relief work were for Roosevelt has been accepted in Many quarters As an announcement that the president will seek a third term. Even the democratic chairman of the Senate Campaign committee said they would make a study of the Hopkins remark. More importance is being Given the incident than it deserves for it is not an announcement 01 or. Roosevelt a candidacy but is simply a trial balloon to discover the direction of the political wind. There have been several others and there will but still More. That carefully planned and widely announced demand by a group of Colorado workers was another the interview a snort time ago with or. Roosevelt on the third term subject was another and there Are at least a half dozen More reduction in labor. The Federal Jabor department yesterday made the follow info announcement a a from the monthly Survey of employment it is estimated that 140.000 wage earners in manufacturing industries were Laid off Between May 15 and june 15. And there was a reduction 111 factory payrolls of $4,500,000 per week during that 30-aay period a. That Tipiere was a reduction of that Many thousand workers is True enough indeed the number is probably greater than stated but the report gives a wrong idea Lor All that because More than half that 140,000 were not a Laid off a at a but Are out. On strike and that is not the fault of general economic conditions the Perkins report gives the impress on that Industrial Are worse than they actually Are. An artificial reduction. It is a Little strange that a department would Issue a statement which is so misleading because it rather reflects Union the administration indicates a widening depression greater than exists and tails to not Quot that a major portion of the labor loss is entirely artificial. report will at once be seized As another Roosevelt failure but the number that went out on strikes ran Only be charged by the roundabout condemnation of the Wagner Law the Lewis influence and the labor relations Board. The latter by the Way. Has just been dumped on its ear by a Federal court True enough these things have had and m Nistra Jlon support and have tended to promote spruces and senator Lar Odette is supplied with funds to continue his trouble Max ing investigations out for All that the great loss of jobs and the great reduction in payrolls does not reflect the True Industrial situation. Actual conditions Are not As bad As indicated. Trust busting starts. The first big blast in the monopoly War was announced by attorney general Cumings a few Days ago. And is directed against the motion picture Industry. This comes As a Surprise because1 there has been a Long a build up against the american Telephone Ana Telegraph company and the various moves made by those in charge indicated that it would by first to meet the administration onslaught. For a Long time must of nearly three years this Industry has been under investigation a million and a half j dollars was appropriated for the i purpose and at All times that has been so one Side and biased As to amount to persecution. T he company has never been Given a Chance to be heard and every circumstance connected with the investigation indicated the new Deal was out to get that concern if it was possible. Why Cummings is holding his fire is Nard to understand. Unless it is that there Are hundreds of thousands of common citizens everywhere who hold the a t amp t. Stock. The fact that the commission was unable to uncover a single wrongful act would make no difference but the coming election might. No circus Parade. The abandonment of the old time circus Parade Nas robbed circus Day of much of its attractiveness. It is rather too bad that the Little kids of today Are never to get the kick out of the Parade which their parents knew and As for the business men its passing is a real loss. The midday Parade used to fill the business streets with people every one turned out to see it. And incidentally it meant a Little business in. E stores. Now the stay can come and go and there is practically nothing in the business District to indicate a show is in the Community. The cites and towns Are largely responsible for the death of the Parade. They stuck on such an additional License fee for it that it became prohibitive. The Early excuse was that the heavy wagons and the elephants endangered the Bridges and culverts.

Comparing notes in a meeting Here sunday the Union leaders Are said to agree to fundamental aspects of the Bill which has also been presented in at least two other states Washington and Minnesota. It probably will propose a state department of civil service headed by a Board of three members serving six year terms who would employ a salaried director and other officers and employees. This Board would direct the giving of civil service examinations for virtually All government employees in Iowa other than Federal and openings would be filled with the highest ranking persons with the exception that veterans preference principles now a part of Iowa Law would be incorporated. To prevent dismissals. That the Union is cognizant also of its relation to present political plums was evident As Giblin explained one of the major purposes is to prevent dismissal of efficient employees upon a change of Jar Lotical administration. That Union s argument also is that civil service properly enacted by the legislature would bring out More efficient government employees. And that government jobs would be open on it it qual basis for All Iowa citizens regardless of their political affiliations and connections.
