fie traced union relations with
tbe Ford Motor Co. over the past

#as “enjoying stable collective

lirl anti-labor forces are seeking
to scuttle.
Then he challenged “manage
ments such as Ford” to join labor
in smothering the hysteria and
labor-baiting that would eventual
ly bring financial chaos to them
through bad labor relations.”
To the representatives of 125,000
workers in 49 Ford plants across
the nation he reviewed the six
"major objectives” of proposed
new legislation:
Eliminaiion ui me u.iui>ea ana

&ff, banning industry-wide bar
gaining, requiring a 60-day cool
jng-off period, “weakening” of the
Vagner Act and compelling bar
gaining by crafts and departments
rather than on an industrial basis.
Allowing some workers to leave
the union would create ‘‘ill feel
ing1’ among those who remain, he
said, and would permit the form
er to “ride the gravy train” by
calling union benefits without
carrying part of union costs.
Large companies such as Ford
would have “no assurance that the
contract they negotiated in one
plant would be satisfactory to
workers in another plant” if com
pany-wide bargaining were illegal,
he 'continued. Bargaining on a
craft or departmental rather than
industrial basis would be ‘‘com
pletely chaotic", he added.
Leonard said mandatory strike
notices and subsequent cooling-crff
periods "usually result in the cre

“make more difficult the solution
of the problem by collective bar
And any weakening of the Wag
ner Act. he said, would enable any
company to evade the act “with
complete impunity, destroying the
union in the process.”
That is the way the legislation

Ice Patrol Major
Coast Guard Duty
. Staff Writer
Ihe international ice patrol on which the United States
toast Guard cutter Mendota left Wednesday is being look
ed, '01 *arc with much interest by many of the seamen
who left on their first tour of such duty
Sne will report to ship and shore*__*
siaiions, oy radio, all weather and
oceangraphy data and the loca
tion and drift of icebergs.
This patrol duty was established
fter the sinking of the Titanic in
1912, with a loss of 1517 lives.
Within a month following the dis
aster, labled the greatest in peace
time marine annals, two United
State cruisers were dispatched to
the ice-infested area.
Remaining on duty for the re
mainder of the ice season, these
ships warned the unwary with
timely radio messages, revealing
the location of any icebergs in the
shipping lanes.
The next year found the United
States Coast Guard assigned to
the International Ice Patrol, with
all countries who used the lanes
in this area, sharing the expense.
To this day, the CoaSt Guard
‘rides herd’ on the icebergs that
lurk in the cold waters of the
North Atlantic, endangering all
sh^>s. . „
Two cutters conduct the patrol
with alternation of duty every 15
days. The ship relieved returning
to the base at Argentsia, in Green
land, to refuel and replenish sup
plies for the next tour of duty.
Accompaning the Mendota, is
the cutter Mojave, stationed in the
Gulf of Mexico during the remain
der of the year.
The ships are manned by men
skilled in weather, oceangraphy.
and aerography. These men re
port their findings in dispatches
to ships and shore stations on reg
ular broadcast hours. A crew of
radiomen are kept busy day and
night handling the radio traffic
that emerges from the data col
lected by the experts.
Aside from weather and ice
bergs, information is recorded
from the ocean itself. Constant
readings are taken from the water
temperature, used in making-out
the current charts, vital to trans
atlantic shipping.
All information gathered during
the patrol, which lasts from March
to late June, is recorded in the
various offices in Washington for
future reference and chart mak
Many people are unconscious of
the fact that the men who .man the
sh,-s must face the elements of
the stormy sea; that there is no
respite from the sub-zero weather
and icy gales that lash the ships
until the decks and rigging are
masses of ice, for there are no
weathgr conditions more severe
than those encountered in the tur
bulent North Atlantic.
Efficiency Of Floor Space
Is No. 1 Must Among
Good Stock Clerks
Staff Writer
While in a large store have you
ever wondered how so many dif
ferent kinds of merchandise can
be handled?
In most stores the stock rooms
are twice as large as the sales
floorN simply because each item
must be treated separately and
usually a month's supply must be
kept on hand.
Merchandise sold in the store
usually is varied and therefore
must have a somewhat different
system of handling from that of
such, places as wholesale grocers,
furniture, and the like.
The space reserved for glass
ware, hardware, and toys is per
haps the largest department in
the store. Each item has a sepa
rate bin in which it is kept, and
labeled accordingly with a requi
sition or order number.
Rows of bins stretch from one
end of the store to the other with
enough space left between them to
get through. All items must be
stacked in the bins neatly so as
to allow for as few mistakes as
possible to be made. Hundreds of
items are handled daily. «
Merchandise to be sold, shipped
in from other cities, is checked in
as the shipping department. From
at the shipping department. From
departments which handles that
particular kind of merchandise.
There it is uncrated and stacked
neatly on the shelves, with a tag
as to order number and kind of
item attached.
About two hours oeiore closing
time, counter girls make out their
“want list” of needy items for the
following days business on requi
sition sheets and put down type of
merchandise desired and its or
der number, thus enabling the per
son who gets the order up a mini
mum of time wasted. These sheets
are picked up by personnel in the
stock departments.
Then comes the rush hour before
closing time.
Each counter carries a different
hardware, dry goods, glassware,
supply of merchandise such as
candy, and the like: and each has
its own stock department where
wanted items are ordered.
After the items are gathered up,
they aio pulled out onto the mam
floor and the girls dress up their
respective counters for the next
day. , ,
A special department takes care

Well-Dressed Woman Can
Wear Grandmother’s
Clothes This Year
PARIS. Feb. 15.— Fashion is
such this spring that you can wear
almost anything, including your
grandmother’s feathered hat, or
your mother’s 1925 box-coat, and
still be called a “chic woman.”
Every designer has followed bis
own track, and if you rave about
a full-pleated skirt, you can have
it. But don’t snub any slim wom
an daintily stepping past you be
cause of her very narrow skirt, for
she is a smart as you.
All big houses, however, have de
signed very feminine collections
putting the bust and hipline into
full value. Some, like Lucien Le

some extra inches to the skirt,
which look like ballet-frocks, very

One of the great novelties is the
introduction of haqd-embroidery
on dresses and the use of cotton
for dressy-suits and evening dress
es, a fashion already introduced in
the United States, but which ap
pears for the first time in Paris.
Linen is used lavishly, in Navy
blue scalloped with white, in caven
der blue, shell-pink, ana all the
fresh colors of spring with crisp
embroideries. Balenciaga is cer
tainly the dress-maker who has
been the most lavish on that kind
of handiwork. Whole dresses of his
collection are in linen re-embroid
ered with venice-lace.
All sleeves are very elaborate,
and designers have taken pride in
invisible seams. Thus far they
succeeded in making set-in sleeves
look like raglan-sleeves and vice
versa. But the shoulder-line re
mains rather drooping, except for
some tailored - suits, such as Lan
vin’s, which have the square-padd
ed sleeves.
For printed dresses and suits,
sleeves reach over the elbo'w Of
ten, little capes are wrapped round
the shoulders, hemmed with lace
or tulle. Paquin has reintroduced
the long-forgotten huge puff-sleeve,
both for day ^nd evening dresses.
The only thing new about skirts
is the introduction of the tunic ef
fect. Underneath is a straight pen
cil-skirt on top of which comes a
kind of pinafore of pleated or gored
material Often, the underneath
skirt is slightly hobbled and slit

Some of these are adorned with a

brightly colored material. Parasols
