Representative the John Budd co. 420 Lexington ave. New York City thursday april 6. 1939. O. god in or ref i to and strength a by present help in isl. God be praised who to believing souls gives Light in darkness Comfort in despair. Shakespeare. When Al ti10k1ty talks Foh self a St Hain t discreet use of the Tongue has been the subject of innumerable homilies and i he basis of much personal sue c e s so through Many generations. Latterly we have made much of free speech and some have mistaken the political state of being for License. If candid free speech is Good it does t follow that unconsidered utterance is less dangerous now than it always has been. It is Well for Man to be free to say what he thinks without fear but it is Well also for him to be deliberate in the use of the privilege. We Are reminded of this by the immediate past action of the British government in sitting Down heavily upon a member of the government who talked with More frankness than restraint before a Sailor audience he boasted of the a readiness Quot of the British Navy and he talked of men timing called to anti aircraft guns after a fashion judged to be disturbing. Recently our importantly placed key Pittman chairman of the Senate foreign relations committee made a radio address which the More cautious americans doubtless will consider evidence of Lack of restraint. With something like Patrick Henry a Fervour senator Pittman denounced dictatorships and said Quot it is evident that a person can die but once and the period of life is limited and that it is far better that he die a few years earlier for christianity Justice and Liberty than that he live a Little longer in cowardice and we would admit that times come to Man or nation when if is Ems better to stand and fight for considerations higher than Fie Sonai safety. However idealism entered in War has been crushed often in the aftermath and the people Are trying to he More rational in their approach to the abysses. The Point we would make is that the chairman of our foreign relations committee. To whom is committed constitutionally much of the responsibility for International contacts might Well leave patriotic speeches of an inflammatory character to others. Really a i to at Philadelphia yesterday and i Ini Strator Elmer f. Andrews of i the Federal wage and hour Divi-1 Aion told an audience that a the honeymoon is he was stressing the passing of a period in which the division worked Toler Antly with those who were failing in particulars to observe the wage hour regulations. Quot within the last few weeks a he said a we have gone to Bat in a dozen cases of non compliance and still other cases Are he added a we Are filing the Teeth of the Buzz saw and they mean trouble for the fellow who thinks he can outsmart Uncle Many a manufacturer who is complying with the Law will Welcome this attitude of the administrator and Hope that he will make his action consistent with it. Undoubtedly the administrator has heard of cases where tile smaller units in Industry have been a taking a Chance a paying Little More than casual respect to the wage hour Law in some important phases of it. The practice of tolerance manifested in Little done beyond the issuance of a cease and desist orders when the infraction was discovered encouraged such Chance taking. The larger operators in the producing Field have been More careful in the main. They faced the Law As a thing with Teeth and they Are penalized when it is revealed As unexpectedly and unduly forbearing in the use of the Teeth. The producer who studied the Law got the Best advice he could find about what its reaches Are and then set his House in order for compliance feels it when his competitor evades those reaches. The administrator owes to those who Are trying to conform to the Law the utmost Diligence in making compliance general. His threat or Promise to file and use the a Buzz saw will please As Many As it will frighten. A woman rebels a phrase in a recent Issue of new York times made reference to Quot hitlers erratic feminine that phrase evoked a the fighting Irish in one woman Reader and she wrote a it is not my sex which is making a shambles of Europe. It is not my sex which is spending Money in a sort of grand emotional she objected to the a stupid habit of ascribing to w Omen practically All human faults and of excusing men for faults on the score that they have a feminine the twin City Sentinel thinks a the term probably should have been Long ago Julius Caesar admired the Brave belgians and he found that a least often do traders go among them and take those things which tend to eff Mirate the clearly the narrator had reference to that which lessened courage probably Strong drink. Hitlers weakness May tic an erratic Bra in which shows at times a dare Devil spirit. It is not difficult to believe that he was insane when he instituted the purge which resulted the death of Over 75 officers of the Reichs wehry All to prevent according to his thinking a civil War. We would Call such a Man Over Here a paranoiac and most assuredly paranoia is not confined to women. In the news America May be willing to have nothing to do with Hitler. However since the issues of War or Vivace in Europe Are largely in hts hands just now this nation almost daily in a business sense is affected by his acts. The Christian science Monitor says stocks go up it is because us one commentator put it Hitler did t take Over anything that Day. Wheat rises amt other commodities hic depressed that if due to the increase in Mer alarms. Bonds sink and we Are Odd that the Selling had its origin in the spread of alarm in Europe arid the consequent desire of bondholders to Lay in Cash this new demonstration of relationship Between americans and Europe a markets reveals that the pattern is much higher than the Mosul alienist Ever dreamed. The Elizabeth City daily Advance is in dead Earnest about wanting a hog Market for the capital of Pasquo tank county. It says that a everybody knows that for the past twelve months or such a matter the daily Advance has been working for a daily Cash hog Market for Elizabeth the desire is for a Packer Market similar to the a one operated by Swift at Rocky mount or to the one operated by Armour at the Advance believes that the Farmers should have such a Market to patronize before voting for it As a permanent business Enterprise. We wish our contemporary Success with the Pasquo tank Farmers. In Eastern North Carolina As in this Section a Farmers Success is largely dependent upon markets and marketing facilities. Peace hath her victories and All that but Ferdinand the Bull probably w ill not be permitted to smell Flowers while the work of rehabilitation goes on in Spain. However there Are compensations if the Greensboro news is Correct a Bull fighting has been resumed in Spain. Which is indeed much More humane in that Hie matadors do not bomb the Bull s wife or sons or with Dale Carnegie author of a How to win friends and influence people if you Ever Dine on the Santa be railway you will be handed a Bill with the words printed on it a Quot suggestions or criticisms regarding our service will be i have travelled on Many railways in Amenia Europe and Asia. I have never Ridden on any railway anywhere that had better service than the Sante be. Yet this Groat company strives to make its service better. It is the hallmark of a Fine company and of a Fine Man to Welcome criticism.

Brace cation in Washington by Bruce Catton Washington april 6�?it is just possible that a pattern of great significance for the handling of Industrial and labor problems is being worked out Here by commit-1 tees operating under the wage and hour division of the department of labor in these Are the in a u s t r y committees which Are preparing minimum wage rec g Omenda Lions for administrator an Brune Cim under the wage hour act the present minimum is 25 cents an hour. That is to be stepped up automatically o 30 cents next october and in 1945 is to Advance to 40 cents. The Industry committees Are trying to work out Scales somewhere Between the 3i-cent level of next october and the 40-eent level of 1945, so that 1945 will not bring too great and sudden a Dis location to Low wage industries so far seven of these committee have gone into operation and two i rave submitted their recommendations. The committee for the Cotton silk Rayon and synthetic textile Industry has called for a 32 1-2-Ccnt rate and the Woolen textile committee has come out for 36 cents. Conv mittens now holding sessions Are Tho for the apparel hosiery hats millinery and Boot and shoe industries. Machinery is significant when commissioner Andrews receives a committee recommendation he May approve it and embody the recommended rate in a wage order. That rate then becomes the Legal minimum wage for that Industry lint j 1940. The commissioner May Send the report Rinck to the committee for revision or he May set up a new committee and Start afresh. He cannot however make changes in the recommendation himself. Now the Mere fact that some i a 645,000 workers Are employed in t i industries for which committees already been selected is not the striking thing about this venture nor a the fact that approximately 133,000 will receive wag increases under the two recommendations already mad a if those recommendations get Andrews approval. What is really significant in the kind of operation which the wage and hour division is attempting. Each Industry committee must by Law consist of an equal number of representatives from each of three different groups a employers employees and the Public. The representative Are chosen by the wage and hour division. For groundwork the committee to Given statistics and economic data prepared by the Bureau of labor statistics. This material is pretty extensive for the textiles committee for instance it comprised a 134 Page printed Book containing an extremely detailed Cross Section study of la whole Industry. Everybody participates this digested the committee Calls witnesses workers retailers wholesalers. Economists Heads of Trade a social ions and so on then the employer and employee members of the committee speak their minds. In to a end. After a tremendous amount of informal discussion argument and Cross questioning the committee votes on the various wage rates w hich has been suggested until the majority is Able to agree on one. Several things Are happening Here. For one capital and labor Are getting another lesson in the Art of sitting Down around a Council table and go. Ing Over their problems seeing each others Point of View and looking at Industry As a whole. For another the tact that the general Public has an equal concern in these problems with capital and labor is getting practical recognition. For still another Lite responsibility which rests on the consuming Public is be. Ing stressed a its responsibility that in the matter of wage Levels and profit margins a Well As its interest in every Day retail costs i Isnit All sweetness and Light of course the different parties follow their own economic interests lust a human beings do everywhere and there is nothing in any of tins to hint that the lion and Lamb Are about to hunk together amicably.
