Price Boost Sought In Increased Production Speed Output In Industries NRA Seeks Jump In Em ployment, Espec i a 1 ly Among The White Collar Jobless Washington.—NRA’s new gov ernors are crystallizing a policy of increasing industrial production as a definite program for bringing the higher price level desired by Presi dent Roosevelt and for boosting employment, especially among the white collar jobless. Blue Eagle code problems are be ing approached from the view-' point of speeding the output of basic materials and their fabrica tion into finished commodities. The: whole plan probably will be taken1 to the White House soon together with an exhaustive report now be ing prepared for the President on the status of the 700-code struc-' ture. j What the new goal may mean' to price fixing and the shorter, work week still is undetermined, j The board’s present tendency is to leave the questions flexible for separate handling in the different industries. In approaching the recovery law’s administration from the an gle of accelerating production, NRA’s rulers are known to be en couraged by the business picture disclosed in confidential figures of the national income, compiled month by month. For the latest month available— August—the national income was reported on NRA records at $4, 512,000,000. This compared with a July peak of $4,5 56,000,000, a low in March, 1933, of $3,5 84, 000 and a 1929 monthly average of $6,964,000,000. Ickes Studying Parkway Brief North Carolina And Ten nessee Submit Written Arguments For Route Washington—Briefs submitted by North Carolina and Tennessee in their contention that the Great Smoky Mountains National park way be located in their respective states will be studied by Secretary Ickes on his trip west, and a de cision may be expected after his re turn November 8, it was indicated it his press conference. The secretary has not yet de cided as to whether he will view the proposed routes on an inspection tour before making his decision, al though- he had made it known he would like to. At the time of the hearing here he said he "might and' might not.” Just what the decision on the route may be, of course, is not known. It is felt here, however that some sort of compromise route, satisfactory to both states, may be the politic decision, since it is felt that it will be necessary to ask congress for more money to complete the parkway than the $16,000,000 already set aside. The proposed "loop route” un der which the parkway would split at Grandfather mountain, one route following down by Mount Mitchell, Asheville and Little Swit zerland, and the other swinging westward to enter the park at Gat linburg, Tenn., may be revised to effect this compromise. i NOW!
