History Repeats to Push Action on Labor Act By HERBERT FLUMMER ASHINGT ON June 1 Wagner of New York must pause and give thought at times as to how much fate has furthered his ideas and phllo osophy as a mem ber of the United States senate When the stocky German bornNew York er left the sup reme court of his state to enter the senate in 1927 he set himself to the task of trying to obtain federal legislation to meet unemployment emergencies He alone in congress aeemed to vision the shadowy threat of the widespread unemployment which was to follow in the wake of the crash of 1929 President Hoover al lowed his federalstate employment system to die by way of a picket ve to When the depression grew stead ily worse he saw his once snubbed measure enactedinto law with lightninglike rapidity History seems likely to repeat for Wagner and one of his pieces of leg islation And agaidit is the exin gencies of the moment which are playing such a prominent part Strikes Force Hand The bloodshed in the Toledo labor disputethe strike threatened in the steel industry and the apparent growingunrest among the laboring classes in other parts of the country may force congress to take action at this session on the labor disputes bill sponsored by Wagner and now pending Many believe the Wagner bill will bemade a part of the must program to be acted upon before ad journment Such legislation is cec essary they argue if the industrial i The Wagner bill would set up a federal agency with power to settle between labor and Indus try It would take the place of the national labor board now function ing under NRA which has no status in law This new federal agency while it could not force an unwilling party to a labor dispute to submit to arbi tration could subpena all parties to a hearing take testimony and de cide whether any of the actions complained of violated the unfair labor practices prohibited by the Wagner bill Opposition Strong Generally speaking the bill seeks to outlaw company dominated unions to grant employes the right to organize and to forbid employers to attempt by coercion or lockout to abridge this right Proponents of the Wagner bill contend there is too much confusion in existing machinery set up to han dle labor disputes What is needed they say is a centralized power to act with definite authority and the Wagner bill they believe supplies just this Despite present unrest and warn ings of more serious labor difficul ties to come opposition to the bill is strong and active A determined fight is in prospect Iowa Motor Freight Line Gets Approval DES

95 SENDS MESSAGE TO CONGRESS TO EXPLAIN STAND Says U S Impressing Europe With Sacred Duty to Pay WASHINGTON June 1 President Roosevelts awaited war debts message sent today to con gress said no legislation at this session of the congress is either necessary or advisable We are using every means he wrote to persuade each debtor na tion as to the sacredness of the ob ligation and also to assure them of our willingness if they shouldso re quest to discuss frankly and fully the special circumstances relating to means and methods of payment Attends Graduation The message went to the capitol in the usual manner despite the president himself being in Massa chusetts to attend the graduation of his son John from Grotou school The American people said the message are not disposed to place an impossible burden upon their debtors but are nevertheless in a just position to ask that substantial sacrifices be made to meet these debts Has Complicated Trade Repayment of the debts the pres identreminded has gravely com plicated ourtrade and financial re lationships with the borrowing na tions for many years At the present time Finland re mains the only foreign government which has met all payments on its indebtedness to the United States punctually and in full We shall continue to expect the debtors on their part said the president at another point to show full understanding of the American attitude on this debt quesion Use of Resources The people of the debtor nations will also bear in mind the fact that the American people are certain to be swayed by the use which debtor countries make of their available resources whether such resources would be applied for the purpose of recovery as well as for reasonable payment on the debt owed to the citizens of the United States or for purposes of unproductive na tionalistic expenditure or like pur poses I can only repeat that I nave made it clear to the debtor nations again and again that the indebted ness to our government has no rela tion whatsoever to reparations pay ment made or owed to them and that each individual nation has full and free opportunity individually to discuss its problem with tbe Unit ed States BARBARIC ACTS IN WAR CHARGED Bolivian Communique Claims Paraguayans Scalped Enemy Dead LA PAZ Bolivia June 1 The war department declared today in a communique that Paraguayan soldiers were committing acts of barbarism in the war in the Chaco Boreal The official communique follows The defeated Paraguayan troops committed acts of savagery on the bodies of some of our dead soldiers We cite concrete

Francisco Rodriguez was battered with a rifle butt and afterwards he was scalped with a machete Divisional commanders are pro testing against these outrages and there is profound indignation among Bolivian soldiers in all sectors In anothercommunique the high command denied categorically that Paraguayans had won a victory in the Canada strongest sector as announced in a dispatch from Asun cion which said the Paraguayan army had captured 15 miles of Bo livian defenses and routed the third Bolivian division U S SIGNS NEW CUBAN TREATY Authority for the United States to Intervene in Cuba to

to tbe extreme gravity of the situation in the conference he would adjourn it until Tuesday to give the delegates time for re flection and an opportunity to find the road to political decision Takes Serious View The conference president said he wished to place before thedelegates of the world the serious view he took of the present position of the conference He said that serious contempla tion on his part had led himto the conviction that the situation was much more grave than at any time since the opening of the parley in February 1932 then declared This situation cannot be setUed merely by
