Wednesday asked congress to appropriate for work relief during the next govern ment yeabeginning July 1 In a special message to congress the chief executive reviewed the unemployment problem proposed that the new funds go entirely to the works progress administration and added The trend of reemployment is upward but this trend at its pres ent rate of progress is inadequate I propose therefore that we ask private business to extend its operations so as to absorb an increasing number of the unemployed None to Be Needed Later If the employment gains are substantial enough no additional appropriation by the next congress for the fiscal year 1937 will be necessary The ultimate cost of the federal works program will thus be determined by private In making the request for Mr Roosevelt noted that more than would be spent out of the treasury in the next fiscal year from prior approp riations while thc budget contained for various public works and the civilian conservation corps The gross projected relief outlay consequently approximated This compared with the presidents estimate that relief out priation and further plans and poli cies be necessary Task of Industry It is the task of industry to make further efforts toward in creased output and employment and I urge industry to accept this responsibility I present this prob lem and this opportunity definitely to the managers of

the revolt was crushed by the loyal army Venizelos with his wife and other republican leaders escaped to Paris safe from the death sentence which was passed upon him during his exile Pardoned by King After King George was recalled to the throne the monarch pardoned Venizelos granting him amnesty There were repeated reports that Venizelos would be permitted to re turn to his native island of Crete in exchange for an appeal to his ad herents and their promise to sup port the new regime but Venizelos always denied all this Venizelos had been premier seven times and a power both in and out of

said if the tax pro gram were carried through as he re the work re lief appropriation would in effect provide for the third successive year a reduction in the Appeals ft Business In appealing to business to take up employment observers consid ered significant this paragraph in the message While the provisions of the anti trust laws intended to prohibit re straint of trade must and shall be fully and vigorously enforced there is nothing in these or any other laws which should prohibit manag ers of private business from work tag together to increase production and Such efforts would indeed be the 1933 but added Inspite ofthese great gains there are at present approximately families and unattached persons who are in need of some form of fam ilies and unattached persons on the works program and on lo cal and state relief ProblemDifficult One The president said these figures large as they do not include all those seeking work and empha sized This problem of unemploy ment is the most difficult one be fore the j It is not exclusively the problem j of the poor and unfortunate them he said It is more par ticularly the problem of those who have been more fortunate under our system of government and our eco nomy It will not do to say that these needy unemployed must or should shift for themselves Neither will it do to say that it is a problem for the states and localities The re sources of local governments and states have been freely drawn upon direct opposite of a conspiracy in in the last few years and they have restraint of trade Many private employers believe that if left to themselves they can accomplish the objectives we all Without going into detail of steps open to business to boost employ ment Mr Roosevelt said Sees Litle Evidence Frankly there is little evidence that large and small employers by individual and uncoordinated action can absorb large numbers of new employes A vigorous effort on a nationl scale is necessary by vol untary concerted action of private industry It is my beliet that if the leaders in each industry will organize a common effort to increase employ ment within that industry employ ment will increase substantially Insofar as their efforts are suc cessful the cost to the federal gov ernment of caring for the destitute unemployed will be lessened x x x Only if industry fails to reduce substantially the number of those now

taken an undue advantage of federal appropriations but most states have cooperated whole heartedly in raising relief funds even to the extent of amend ing state constitutions It is not desired in the next fis cal year to encourage any states to continue to shirk The federal gov ernment cannot maintain relief for unemployables in any state The federal government then faces the responsibility of
