NEWS REVIEW OF
CURRENT EVENTS
Grave Warning Concerning
Unemployment Is Issued
by the A. F. of L.
By EDWARD W. PICKARD
I TNI.ESS America's financial and In-
dustrlal leaders live up to their
responsibility to devl.se a solution for
the prohlem of recurrent periods of
unemployment, the present social or
der cannot he maintained.
Such Is the dictum of the American
Federallon of I..nbor as expressed hy
President William Green at the con
vention In Boston, t.abor’s combined
program for an ultimate solution of
unemployment and for Immediate re
lief was favored hy Mr Green and
was adopted after a debate In the
course of which the federal govern-
roont and the federal reserve board
were severely criticized. This pro
gram, suggested by the executive
council, provides for the following:
Reduction In hours of work, stabili
zation of Industry, efficient manage
ment in production and sales policies,
estahllshinent of a nation-wide system
of unemployment exchanges, adetjunte
records on employment, use of public
works to meet cyclical unemployment,
a study of all proposals for relief and
education for life.
To meet the Immediate problem of
relief the delegates Instructed the fed
eration's executive council to go to
Washington at the conclusion of the
convention and ask President Hoover
to appoint a national committee which
shall recommend measures that may
he put Into effect at once—such plans
to he carried out by private and Quasi-
public agencies, departments of the
federal, state., and municipal govern
ments. counties and school districts.
The executive council was also In
structed to call upon all state federa
tions of labor and all affiliated cen
tral bodies to rcQuest their respective
governors and mayors to co-operate
with the national committee by state
and city committees.
The committee on resolutions re
ported that. In accord with labor's
traditional policy. It was opposed to
compulsory nnemployment Insurance,
and at Its suggestion all resolutions
favoring this were referred to the ex
ecutive council.
D uring the debates Secretary of
the Navy Adams was charged
’s‘lth working contrary to President
Hoover's policy of maintaining pub
lic work at present wage levels, par
ticularly at the Philadelphia navy
yard asd the Newport torpedo base.
In Washington, however. Assistant
Secretary of the Navy Jahneke denied
atoy Ilian to reduce wages.
The federation's committee on
shorter work day and week reported
that the shorter work week was nec-
ceJisary but In view of the tremen
dous economic and social questions
Involved In Its establishment proposed
that the executive council give the
matter of the shorter day Its Immedi
ate consideration, "secure all available
etatlstical Information related to the
problem." and then report to next
ysar's conrentlon on how short. In Its
opinion, the work day should be. I.a-
bor Is already pleilged to the five-day
aeek.
■‘While this shortening of the work
0ny may setun a radical change. It
fulls to parallel the drastic change
which has taken place in Industry
which liatf so enormously Increased
per capita production," the committee
report stale*!.
Communists of Boston undertook to
stage a denionsimtion just outside the
convention hall where the federation
was In session, and when the police
■ trie*) to disperse them the worst riot
the city has had In many years resiilt-
e*1. Hundre*i8 of men and women
fought the police desperately.
Monihly flgtirea Issued by the De
partment of Ijibor show that employ
ment In September was 1 per cent
greater than In August, and that pay
roll totals were 1.-4 per rent greater.
But with winter coming on the situa
tion Is dMldcdly gloomy, and mca>
' ures for temporary relief are being
taken by many state and municipal
governments.
IN GERMANY the unemployment sit-
^ uatlon is probably more Immediate
ly critical than elsewhere. The gov
ernment Is determined to enforce a
policy of drastic economy and In line
with tills the official arbitrator recent
ly ordered a cut of 0 per cent in the
wages of the metal workers of Berlin.
The union ordered a strike in protest,
and last week 120,000 thus were added
to the .057,000 unemployed men and
women In the capital city. These
workers out of work marched about
la large groups and tried to reach the
parliament building, but were drlveu
off by the police and firemen.
Sessions of the relchstag were ex
ceedingly stormy. Dr. Paul Loebe.
Sodoilst, was re-elected speaker de
spite the opposition of the Fascists
and Communists. Franz Stoehr, Fas
cist, was chosen first vice president.
The first Fascist threat to the gov
ernment was beaten off when Ernst
Scholz, Fascist candidate for speaker,
lost to l.oebe on tbe second ballot.
The Fascist might have driven u
wedge between the government and
the Socialists if Loebe had been de
feated, for the life of the cabinet de
pends largely on support from the So
cialists, numerically the largest parly
In tbe relchstag.
ORAZIL'S civil war was marked by
^ fierce and continuous fighting on
many fronts. In their communiques
both sides claimed victories, but the
preponderance of evidence was rather
in favor of the revolutionists. The
main efforts of tbe rebels were direct
ed Coward Che capture of Sao Paulo,
and their bulletin said they were get
ting near that Important city. The
Insurgents also were battling their
way toward Rio de Janeiro, winning
H battle only 130 miles northeast of
tbe capitsi city.
The federal forces, according to the
official notice, have maintained their
lines established In tbe state of Minas
Geraes, In no case are retreating, and
la a number of Instances are making
considerable gains, chief among these
being tbe defeat of Minas Geraes In
surgent troops at the Mantequelra
tunnel.
Secretary of State Stimson an
nounced in Washington that tbe Unit
ed States would permit the Brazilian
government to purchase munitions of
war to this country, and that arms
shipments to the revolutionists would
not be allowed. The cruiser Pensa
cola left Guantanamo for Brazilian
waters to protect American Interests.
OP.\JN seems to be on the verge of
'-J a revolution, the first open signs
of which were anti-royatlst demon
strations by students of Barcelona
university. The Institution was tem
porarily dosed. This, however, is said
to be merely a symptom of the out
break that Is to come. Tbe military,
the republican federals and the Cata
lan separatists are alleged to have
reached an agreement to work togeth
er for the overthrow of the monarchy,
though the ultimate objectives of
these groups are very divergent. Neu
tral observers In Spain, however, be
lieve that the Berenguer government
will succeed In suppressing the Insur
gents though the monarchy Is seri
ously threatened.
O ELIEF for the unemployed farm-
^ ers and others In the drought
stricken regions Is forthcoming to
some extent through the action of the
federal governraeiit. At the Instance
of the national drought relief com
mittee, the government has made Im
mediately available to drought states
their IIWJ allotments of Its 512.5.000.-
000 appropriation for aid to highway
construction.
J. B. Klncer, Agricultural depart
ment meteorologist, says the drought
has been the most prolonged and wide
spread In the history of the nation's
weather records. The average rain
fall of the country between January
and September was reduce*! to 87
per cent of the noniial. and during
the growing season from March to
.August It amounted to only 81 per
cent.
\ TODIFICATION of the Volstead
act legalizing the manufacture
uud sale of beer would create an add
ed market for 100.000,000 bushels of
small grain annually, according to B.
T. Dow of Davenport, Iowa, president
of the Grain and Feed Dealers' Na
tional association. He made the state
ment at the association's annual meet
ing in Chicago, and then commented
on a recent announcement of Fred
Pabst, head of a Milwaukee brewing
concern, that his company Is expend
ing nearly a million dollars on new
equipment in anticipation of a possi
ble modification of the dry law.
In the grain men's convention the
federal agricultural marketing act was
attacked by F. Dumont Smith as fu
tile and unconstitutional. In urging
farmers to reduce their production to
domestic requirements. Smith said,
Chairman Alexander Legge of the
farm board made "a complete and ab
ject confession that the whole scheme
and purpose of the farm relief act
had utterly failed.”
WIGHT W. MORROW. In his
L-' opening speech of his campaign for
election to the senate from New Jer
sey. removed himself from tbe pic
ture as a candidate for the Republi
can Presidential nomination In 1932—
which Is disappointing to a consider
able number of wets. Said Mr. Mor
row:
"1 look forward with pleasure and
confidence to tbe opportunity of vot
ing two years from now for the re-
nomination and re-electloD of Herbert
Hoover.”
The United States Supreme court
In effect upheld the Jones five and ten
law when it denied two petitions for
review of cases from Missouri in
which the law was attacked as vio
lating the principles of tbe Constitu
tion. The, court gave no reason for
Its action. In another case the Su
preme court assured the right of fed
eral agents to act as state enforce
ment officials where there is no state
dry law.
I^AL S. DAUGHERTY, brother of
former United States Attorney

U. S. PLANS WAR ON
WALL STREET RAIDS
Congressional Investigation
Under Consideration.
Washington.—Congressional investi
gation of the "bear'’ raids on the stock
market i.s certain unless officials of the
New York exchange are successful In
stopping them, it was declared by
leaders in congress.
President Hoover was said to have
placed the responsibility £oi' prevent
ing manipulation of prices squarely
upon the governors of the stock ex
change.
He conferred recently \vi:li Eugene
Meyer, governor of ilie federal re
serve board. The {’resident has been
In frequent consultation with Secre
tary of the Treasury Mellon.
The campaign started b;' Riclmnl
Whitney and Lindloy .Allen, president
and vice president, respectively, of the
stock exchange, to discourage delib
erate attempts to smash priv-es, Is un
derstood to have the approval of the
White House.
In congress, however, many mem
bers are clamoring for a sweeping
Investigation. The administration Is
understood to hold that the exchange
should first be given an opportunity
to "clean house."
Politics have entered In the pic
ture, with some charging that wealthy
politicians were responsible for the
‘‘raids’’ on the market, with a view to
fomenting hard times.
On the other hand, some contend
that the steady decline in securities
prices Is a natural afterniatli to the
bull market whicli reached its fantas
tic peak last fall.
Senator Carter Glass (Dem.) of Vir
ginia, one of the framers >f the net
creating the federal reserve system.
Is understood to he planning to start
an investigation of the system's activi
ties In November.
The senate has authorized a con-
ittee, headed by Glass, to make such
an Inquiry.
While the resolution Is believed to
be broad enough to permit an In
quiry into stock market methods, the
Inspiration back of It was to devise
ays to prevent an excessive amount
of federal reserve credit from being
absorbed In the stock market,
Should .Senator Glass’ ^oinmlttee
ok Into the stock mar' «, ns now
seems likely, others undoiiiiSedly will
demand that the “bear” raids also be
examined. '

shot in the leg. The pair laid $2,.300
in loot In their pockets.
Within less than 2-1 hours after the
double crime. .Martin and Gallngber
entered tbe state prison here to serve
life terms. There had been no pleas
for continuance, no writs of mao*lfl-
mus, no stalling of Justice customary

a life sentence In Michigan means life,
not the usual 14 years.

A. F. of L. Fears Social Order
Cannot Be Maintained.
Boston, Mass.—The American Fed
eration of Labor lu convention here,
re-elected its entire set of officers
headed by President William Green
and selected Vancouver, B. C., us tbe
19.31 convention city.
Boston, ' Mass.—Organized laber.
through William Green, president of
the American Federation of Labor,
lias .served warning that tbe present
social order cannot be maintained if
industrial and finunclul leaders fall
to live up to their responsibility to
find a solution to the recurrent peri
ods of iinemploynienf.
Mr, Green's challenge to the lead
ers of Industry to set tlie economic
house In order unless they wished to
see It tumble about their ears, was
voiced at the annual convention
the federation. He spoke in favor of
labor's combined program for an ulti
mate solution of unemployment
proposals for Immediate relief. Adop
tion of the program was marked hy
severe criticism of the federal i
eminent and of tlie federal reserve
board.
At the same time the convention,
after vigorous debate, adopted the re
port of the resolutions favoring com
pulsory unemployment insurance un
der federal and state supervision to
the executive council. The commit
tee's report declared that, in line with
labor's traditional policy, it was op
posed to compulsory unemployment
insurance.
As Its long rnnge policy for solv
ing unemployment the convention
adopted the suggestions of the execu
tive council. This policy provides for
the following:
Reduction in hours of work, sta
bilization of Industry, efficient man
agement in production and sales poli
cies, establishment of a natlon-vVide
system of unemployment exchanges,
adequate records on employment, use
of public works to meet cyclical un
employment, a study of all propos
als for relief and education for life.
To meet the Immediate problem of
relief the delegates Instructed the fed-
ernilon's executive council to go to
Washington and ask ITesldent Hoover
to appoint a national committee which
shall recommend measures that may
be put into effect at once—such plans
to be carried out by privatp and quasl-
publlc agencies, departments of the
federal, state, nod municipal govern
ments, counties and school districts.
The executive council was also in
structed to call upon nil state fed
erations of labor and all nffltinted cen
tral bodies to request their respective
governors and mayors to co-operate
with the national committee by state
and city committees.
Wa.shington.—Shift of farming hind

leased tlie past week. Tlie decrease,
the hulletiii sold, was 2.3 per cent of
the total number in 1020.
.An analysis of the figures, which
were gathered la.st April, indicated
that agriculture is now making Its
most successful stand in the S*inth-
west and on the I’nclfie const, while
In the Central West, the West and
the eastern region of the southern
slates It is barely holding Its owr
The encroachment of manufactur
ing was most noticeable in New Eng
land and middle and south Atlantic
areas, where farms have been largely
turned over to Industries.
There were G.448.34.3 farms In the
nation in 1920, the figures showed.
In 1020, the number had declined to
0,371,640 and In 1930. the year of the
enumeration, the total had dwindled
In 0,207,877. The more rapid shift
from farm to city was Indicated be
