Appeal May Aid
Wage-Hour Administrators Hope for
Favorable Reaction in Low
WASHINGTON, Oct. 26 (UP)
Wage-hour administrators hoped to
day that President Roosevelt's per
sonal appeal for cooperation would
bring about an effort in low wage
industries to make the new fair labor
standards law work.
Beginning the third day under the
new law, .wage-hour officials were
optimistic. They hoped that employ
ers who have shut down their fac
tories in protest against the law's
minimum wage and maximum hour
provisions would attempt to comply
rather than throw thousands out of
work on the eve of a national elec
tion. They were encouraged by the fact
that no court action against the law
has yet been taken- They expected,
however, that a court test would be
made in the near future and that it
would reach the supreme court
The president's request for co
operation was made as Wage-Hour
Administrator Elmer P. Andrews re
ported that most employers had been
"Just fine" in meeting problems im
posed by the law.
Mr. Roosevelt directed his re
marks particularly at the pecan
shelling industry, which closed down
Monday rather than boost wages of
its more than 30,000 employes from
an estimated eight to 15 cents an
hour up to the 25 cent minima. He
observed that the nation was not go
ing to stop growing, picking and sell
ing pecans, and that therefore it was
the practical thing for employers in
the industry to sit down with gov
ernment officials and try to make
the law work.
lie said that It was unfortunate
that the question had arisen just
two weeks before the election be
cause, judging by any Important so
cial legislation put on the statute
books in the past, some persons are
immediately affected, but it is by no
means certain that they are per
manently adversely affected.
In other words, he observed, a na
tional law like the wage hours statute
works Itself out.
It would be an exceedingly good
thing, he continued, if even those
whom he described as the most re
actionary newspaper owners and poli
ticians were to try. as a matter of
patriotic duty, to make the law work.
He added that the Lord knows that
the administration received no help
from that type of American In get
ting the act passed.
He described this group of people
as the kind which says they are in
favor of decent wages, but say they
don't like your proposal and method
of reaching this objective. Then,
Mr. Roosevelt continued, you offer
another method and they say that's
terrible, so you offer another which
they reject as awful.

Plan Would Cause
Cochran Points Out Ttat Would Give
a Larger Income Than Many
Laborers, Fanners Receive
KEARNEY, Neb., Oct. 26 (UP) '
Governor Cochran asserted in a radio
address today that if $30 a month
were paid to the needy aged, as pro
posed by his opponents, old age re
cipients would have a larger cash in
come than many Nebraska farmers
and wage earners.
"Would you tax the toil of these
people who now find it hard to make
a living for themselves and their
children and to educate their chil
dren?" he asked. "Would you tax
these hard working people to pay
one group more than they themselves
are getting from their toil?" The
governor compared the Nebraska as
sistance program with Colorado and
said that "in contrast to this dis
illusionment our program in Nebras
ka is a program of performance, not
promises. It does it in actual dollars
and cents without heading the state
for bankruptcy as is our sister state
to the west."
