UNITED STATES SENATOR
The high degree of Congressional
interest in the labor situation, re
flected in the current hearings on a
proposed minimum hour and wage
law, in the studies of strike deve
lopments, and jn numerous legisla
tive plans for stabilizing labor con
ditions, is evidence that progress is
being made in the effort to improve
working conditions and strike a med
ium as to the respective rights of
capital and labor.
under the drive for unionization of
all workers and the plans of em
ployers to meet this wider organiza
tion of labor, the public generally
will, through the forces of govern
ment, be the arbiter of respective
rights. In other words, employers
and workers, must be and are pre
pared to adjust their battle tactics
to public sentiment. To put it still
another way, agencies of government
must be prepared to umpire labor
difficulties and see that the public
interest is fully protected. This is
the objective of all new legislation
dealing with labor problems.
It is interesting to note that the
tremendous strides in labor organi
zation today are under far different
conditions than those of seventeen
years ago, when trade union mem
berships passed the five million
mark. "With the outbreak of the
World War, political and economic
conditions highly favorable to the
growth of organized labor were
created. The flow of European
orders into this country and later
the heavy war purchases by our own
government produced a state of great
, V business activity and demand fori
,'. J labor', 'The stoppage of immigration!
t - and the withdrawal of man power fori
,P t!l military purposes also helped to
tighten the labor market and streng
then the bargain power of labor.
And with industrial peace essential
to continued production, the Federal
Government .encouraged the exten
sion of trade unionism and collective
Conditions for the present drive
for the stronger organization of labor
are, of course, entirely different from
those of the war period. Instead of
a shortage of labor we have a sur
plus and unemployment is wide. Per
sonal contacts between employers
and employees are fewer. The trend
toward larger establishments em
ploying great numbers of workers
continues. For labor, this means
that workers must place more de
pendence upon the employs repre
sentatives. In a word, individual
bargaining over terms of employ
ment is being replaced by mass bar
gaining. Increased mechanization is a con
tributing factor to maintaining fac
tory output with fewer workers.
Small and inefficient plants are be
ing eliminated and regional shifts of
factories and scientific management
are having great effect. Thus
labor's powers of adjustment to
changing conditions are even more
demanded in the future than in the
Obviously, the part of the govern -
ment in these changes is tremendous.!

end that neither capital nor labor
will encroach on the rights of the
public. The farmer, who is directly
affected, must be protected. Agri
culture occupies a dominant place as
a source of supply for raw materials
for factory and food for workers.
And Congressional leaders are de
termined that the rights ' of the
farmer shall not be overlooked as(
our rural population forces of labor.
There are high hopes that Congress
will, through desirable and equitable
legislation now pending, contribute
to a solution of the problem with due1
rgeard for the rights of all

Rayon is made by liquefying cel
lulose or one of its chemical deriv
atives and forcing this fluid through
small holes into a solution that
hardens it into a silky fiber. Be
cause they are smooth and trans
lucent, such fibers are much more
lustrous than those of silk. This
brilliance is not highly regarded by
rayon users, probably because it is
a characteristic of what was once
an inferior product. It is therefore
a practice to add to the-rayon a de
lusterant to make it duller and more

Timely Questions On
Question: What spray or dust
should I use to protect my late can
teloupes from worms?
Answer: The most common and
destructive worms that attack can
teloupes are the pickle worm and
the melon worms. These pests can
be controlled by frequent applica
tions of a .75 per cent rote none dust
containing 25 per cent of sulphur.
The rate of application should be
from 15 to 20 pounds per acre de
pending upon the size of the
plants. Treatments should 'begin
when the worms first appear and
continue at seven day intervals as
long as the worms are present. ForHaU and husbandi Semore Hall, L.
best control, the stems foliage, and Edward-Taylor, and wife, Sarah V.
leaves should be completely covered
with the dust,
1 Question: Is it necessary to feed
both mash and grain to poultry dur-
ing the developing period?
Answer: This is a most import
ant period in the life of the birds
and it is necessary that they have
a balanced ration at all times so as
to develop a large frame and the
body reserve so essential to heavy
egg production. The developing mash
may be kept before the birds at all
times with grain feeding in the morn'
jng ana evening or both mash and
grain may be left before the birds all
the time. Either way will work out
very satisfactory. In all cases the
I poultryman should keep a careful
check on body weight and vitality
and, if the birds do not. make a nor
mal gain, the feeding program should
be checked immediately,
Question: When should alfalfa-be
cut for hay?
Answer: For best results the!
cutting should be made wnen irom
one-tenth to one-fourth of the flow
ers are in bloom or when new
growth is , well started from the
crown. Cutting too early weakens
the vitality of the plants, lowers the
yield, and shortens the life of the
field. Late cuttings lower the feed
ing value as the stems become woody
and, the leaves ihed f rom the plants.
Too frequent cuttings ?,weakenv the
root system, cause poor stands, and
reduce future yields. . Four cuttings
a year is the maximum that should
be made under nwst conditions.'
