Responsible for Peace Garrison Tries for Textile Walkout Settlement By HERBERT PLUMMER WASHINGTON Sept 5 Upon the shoulders of a quiet earnest and pleasant young law yer of 37 rests the responsibil ty and the hopes of the adminis tration for re storing peace in the f arf lung textile industry is Lloyd K Garrison great grandson of the fain oug New England aboli tionist and chairman of the National Labor Relations board the government incidentally direct ly across the street from the build ing which houses a portion of the department of labor Garrison and his colleagues on the labor relations board have girded themselves for their first real baptism of fire Only last month he was installed as chairman of the board The sum mons came as a surprise to him He was leaving his duties as dean of the law school of the University of Wisconsin for a summer in the east Comfort and Decorum On the eve of his departure Sec retary Perkins of the labor depart ment communicated to him the desire of President Roosevelt that he enlist for three months in the government service He hurried to Washington or ganized his board and began hear ings in the board of review room Its necessary to observe Garrison in action to form any sort of esti mate of the man He has quick and expressive eyes and a ready smile There is an air of informality about him personal ly as well as his little courtroom During hearings if the day be a hot one coats come off Theres al ways a quiet dignity about however and procedure is kept within the Hounds of legaldecorum Seeks Exchange of Ideas Garrison tempers the strict rules of evidence with common sense and he has managed several times to soothe differences of bitter contend ers His board sits rather as judge and jury than as magistrate alone Usually he sees to it theres op portunity for a liberal exchange of ideas before the testimony begins By so doing he has been able to pre vent more than one stalemate His objective seems always to be an agreement rather than a sentence HEADLESS HUMAN BODY DISCOVERED Torso of Woman Found in Lake With Legs Cut Off at Knees CLEVELAND Sept 5 headless human body whose legs had been cut off at the knees was found in Lake Erie today off a beach on Clevelands east side The torso was that of a woman and had been in the water for more than three months Detective Ser geant Bernard Wolf head of the homicide squad said The body probably was dismem bered said Police Sergeant Ralph Mace I would say that the legs had been cut off at the knees and the torso had been broken in half by disintegration and the action of the waves Identification of the victim is ex pected to be difficult The torso was unclothed and there were no Coast guards dragged the beach in an unsuccessful attempt to find other portions of the body

BOARD Rathke New State Legion Commander LAVALLETTE TO BE CHAPLAIN OF IOWA VETERANS Hayes Urges Universal Service in Time of War BULLETIN SIOUX CITY Sept 5 Waterloo was selected as the site of the 1935 annual conven tion of the Iowa department of the American Legion at the closing session here today SIOUX CITY Sept 5 C Rathke of Glenwood was elected commander of the Iowa department of the American Legion at the clos ing session of the departments six teenth annual convention here to day For the three department vice commanders the Legionnaires chose V F Sieverding of Grundy Center C Akers of Ottumwa and Leo Gal lagher of Sibley The Rev Paul LaVallette of Rockford was elected state chaplain R J Laird of Algona was re elected adjutant and Dr J A Nye of Ida Grove was reelected his torian C D Meloy of Cherokee was chosen alternate national commit teeman Commander Speaks The safety of our government and the preservation of liberty are the responsibilities of every citizen and the particular duty of every veteran who fought to uphold those ideals Edward A Hayes national com mander of the American Legion said here today We of the American Legion who served our country in time of emergency have a responsibility to see that the constitution of our re public is not made a mere scrap of paper he said The men and women who fought to preserve our government must continue their efforts in peacetime against the inroads of radical ele ments which are teaching strange tenets and advocating a tearing down of those fundamental prin ciples upon which our nation has progressed and which if preserved guarantee an equal opportunity in life for every American Common Responsibility Mr Hayes said that common re sponsibility for all citizens is em braced in the measure which the Le gion seeks to have enacted into law known as universal service in time of war It is a principle of individual ob ligation to our constitution of the United States that brings into sharp contrast the action of certain groups in this country today that are opposed to the just and proper care of our disabled veterans as one illustration and a sharp contrast with the teachings of communism as another illustration The American Legion position on the subject of citizenship duty is clearcut and consistent It applies with equal logic to the sponsorship of justice for the disabled to loyalty in support of the constitution and in the determination that every ele ment share an equal burden of sup porting our government whether it be in war or peace Not Upon Pedestal The Legion is not attempting to place the veterans upon a pedestal in a class by themselves The veter ans have been placed in a class of handicap by reason of their service to the flag The Legion seeks only to bring them to the level of those who did not serve in the great war The national commander said a tentative statement is being consid ered by the various department conventions and will eventually be taken to the national convention in Miami Fla Oct 2225 This statement deals specifically with the Legions stand regarding disabled veterans he said but it goes still farther and looks to a more basic declaration of individual responsibility to our government It declares that the responsibility for the medical care of the civilian group of our country is in the com munity but that responsibility for the care of the veterans who fought for the whole people is vested in the federal government Inequalities Existed The statement declares that the inequalities that existed in the World war which are reflected to day in the organized opposition to giving proper care to the disabled shall not be respected in any fu ture war The correction is to be Ttttti to Page 3 Column 6 ELECTED BY LEGION W C RATHKE
