French for a betterunderstand ing with the United States and warned that an association in which the AngloSaxons are not a part is insufficient to assure world peace Action by Industries WASHINGTON July 0 The administration is contemplating steps to hurry up industries which officials say have been disappoint ingly slow in agree ments under the niMiumu recovery law The situation was up for analysis and decision at a session today be tween President Roosevelt Hugh S Johnson the recovery administra tor and Secretary Roper chair man of the abinet advisory com mittee on industry At the rate industries are mov ing officials regard It as likely that wage increases cannot become ef fective on a big scale before the end of summer whereas the admin istration objective is to have the entire program well in operation within 60 days jTurlliermore it was definitely understood that Johnson and Roper had informa tion to lay before the president showing that while many industries are debating what to do individual factories have jumped in to take advantage of the expected advance in prices by running full tilt at present low wage levels piling up cheap stocks with the intention of making a big profit on them later Should this policy continue ad ministration men see a danger that overproduction might again break down the painfully built upward movement Conforming to President Roosevelt Program Says MacNider Wage increases to the predc pression levels were announced Thursday by both the Northwestern States Portland Cement company and the Lehigh Portland Cement company The new wage scale which will bring the income of workers at both plants back to that of the halcyon days before depression will become effective July 15 Notices of the new wage scale were posted in the Northwestern plant Wednesday night and Thurs day morning in the Lehigh estab lishment Backing President The increase in scale is eing made in order to conform to the program of President Roosevelt and in hopes that the public works prospects will materialize in the mmediate future Col Hanford MacNider president of the North western States Portland Cement company stated Although shipments at present do not warrant it and although tho present demand for cement has not increased aa much as the industry had hoped and expected the Nortlv westeriiV Ocment Widespread destruction of promising corn In

towards speeding the industrial recovery movement now under way throughout the nation Colonel MacNider stated To Help Business With the Lehigh company mak ing a similar move there will be a quickening of the business life in Mason City which should benefit tbe whole community The Mason City plants are leading the way in Iowa in this movement just as they have in keeping their operations going during the last two years when other plants were practically shut down or on a greatly de creased production The wage increase is a substan tial one in all departments of the two plants the minimum advance being 10 per cent It is understood that th3 Mason City plants have always paid a scale higher than their competitors in this section where in places the wages sank as low as 20 cents an hour
