Tcagle that President Hoovers chief aids now seem to be turning to save the sit they turned to Chairman Gifford a year ago and to Chairman Woods the preceding year Have Broadcast Appeals Anyway Secretaries of Commerce and Labor Roy D Chapin and Wil liam N Doak the cabinet pair most directly interested in the In dustries and workers problems recently have broadcast appeals to large employers the country over bespeaking their cooperation in the jobsharing program which is men tioned by both department chiefs as having the presidents warm in dorsement THE PLAN is simple An employer who has a certain amount of work to be done is urged to cut it into the maximum number of jobs consistent with the pay ment to each worker ol a sufficient wage to exist providing for as many men as possible without in creasing his own production costs Reduce Working Hours Indeed an employer who has a force already working for him on full time is advised to reduce its working hours and pay according in order to permit of numerical additions Chairman Teagle is quoted to the effect that 3500000 jobs have been created In this it is not stated how many previously fully employed workers have been put upon part time with corre spondingly reduced incomes in the process IT IS TRUE that labor leaders do not like the system President William Green of the A P of L to be sure grudgingly acquiesces in it as an emergency necessity but other officials of the federation quite generally are un qualifiedly against it At its best they say it compels the workers to carry the full bur den of unemployment Lower Living Standard At its worst they believe it to be preparatory to a lowering of labors living standard If it proves to he necessary permanently to shorten he working day or week or both as an offset to the mechanization and acceleration of Industry Labors advocates have contended that this should be accomplished without pay with an advance Instead they argue reductions in ime and pay are being made simul aneously Once both are effected hey fear both will remain frozen at he lowered level DESPITE these complaints it is evident from the tone of comment at the commerce and labor depart nents that Secretaries Chapin and 3oak alike expected their appeals n the job sharingmovements be alf to be popular Few Care to Come Secretary of State Henry L Stim onappears also to have looked for

WEIR BLDG OF MASON CITY PHONE STALIN CRITICIZES CAMPBELLS BOOK Continued From Page 1 statement the article continued Mr Campbell is obviously using his fancy when he says the conver sation with Stalin which started at 1 oclock p m continued long af ter night into the dawn Indeed the conversation lasted no more than two hours Mr Camobells fancy is a real American one Mr Campbell fabricates more and more when he ascribes to Sta lin words like Trosky ox iled Russian Bolshevik they really tried to extend communism all over the world and this was the first reason for the rupture between Trotsky and himself that Trotsky trusted world communism while he Stalin wanted to limit his activity in his own country Facts Upside Down This senseless fabrication which turns facts upside flown can be be lieved only by deserters to the camps of Kautskys Wells and Mr Trotsky This reference apparent ly was to Carl Kautsky the Ger man socialist and H G Wells the British novelist who caused a sen sation several years ago by prais ing Russian institutions In fact the conversation with Campbell had no relation to the question of Trot sky and Trotskys name was not mentioned during all the conversa tion the article went on Mr Campbell la inventing more and more Mr Campbell in his book mentions the record of the interview with Stalin but he did not consider it necessary to publish it in his book I think the best punishment for the tale telling Mr Campbell will be to pub lish the text of the record of the conversation between Mr Campbell and Stalin The article was signed J Sta lin and dated December 28 U S Has Reasons In the published record of the interview Stalin was quoted as say ing to Campbell It is very clear to me that the United States more than any other country has reasons to provide business relations with the soviet union not only because the United States is rich in technique and cap ital but because in no other country would our business and people have enjoyed such a cordial reception and hospitality Stalin then went on into the ques tion of propaganda denying that the soviet government or any of its agents could undertake such work of interference with internal af fairs of another country adding soviet government could not Be held responsible for legal activi ties of the American communist party in that respect Fayette County Office Is Won by Republican WEST

vapor Made Airplane Tests His airplane testa of cosmic raya said Dr Mlllikan were the firs really accurate tests from airplanes ever taken and were made possible by a new specially developed device They showed no such differences in the intensity of the rays from the tropics toward the poles as Comp ton found from tests on mountain peaks On the other hand said Dr Comp ton the photons that Millikan be lieves he has detected may not be cosmic rays at all but only local photons or particles split off from atoms of air a few miles from the earth by the impact of the real cosmic rays in the form of electrons Speed Toward Earth This actually could happen if the cosmic rays are electrons and as a result a mixture of photons and elec trons would speed toward the earth The photons would have greater penetrating power and this might explain tests that seem to show cos mic rays penetrate deep Into lakes and the earth Instead of cosmic rays they might have been really just these local photons from the atmosphere Most scientists agree however that the rays whether real cosmic rays or secondary ones are charged particles traveling almost as fast as light DECEMBER 30 1932 Benefit Cage
