C., recently formed an or ganization called the William B. Wil son testimonial committee to support William B. Wilson in his fight for the senate seat now claimed by "Boss" William S. Vare, of Pennsylvania. In a speech before the Associated Press in New York city on April 23, President Hoover declared that crime and disrespect for law threatened the future of the nation, and called upon every. American to aid in law enforce ment. As a result of a supreme court rul ing given April 22,Harry F. Sinclair, oil magnate, must go to jail for three months for refusal to answer ques tions asked by the senate oil investi gating committee. The Michigan State Federation of Labor and the Rialroad Brotherhoods recently formed a joint legislative committee to promote the general welfare of wage earners in legislative matters. The senate immigration committee on April 23 voted against resolutions to repeal or postpone the national origins clause of the immigration act. Legislation to prevent use of the in junction in labor disputes, legislation providing for sex instruction, opposi tion to all military training in high schools and to compulsory military training in colleges, and old age se curity measures were approved by the eighty-first annual confreence of the New Yoi'k East Conference of the Methodist Church, held recenlty at Stamford, Conn. Resolutions adopted by the Building Trades Council of New Orleans me morialize the Louisiana senate to give Gov. Huey P. Long "a trial in accord with the constitution of the state and a decision in accord with the sense of fairness which the members of that body should have." Heirs of the late Mrs. Potter Palm er, Chicago social leader, on April 24 filed an involuntary petition in bank ruptcy in federal court at New York city against the Brotherhood of Loco motive Engineers Securities Corpora tion of New York, one of the financial institutions founded by the late War ren S. Stone, president of the Brother hood of Locomotive Engineers. Twelve thousand union bricklayers won a substantial wage increase in New York city, the new scale taking effect May 1, by negotiations conclud ed with the employers on April 24. Wages of miners in the lead and silver mines of Utah have been ad vanced about 5 per cent, or 25 cents a day, by the larger producers in the district. The increase is retroactive to March 15. As a result of negotiations between the Federated Shop Crafts and the railroad managements, approximately 35,000 shopmen, employed on all the railroads of Canada, have obtained wage increases varying from 2 cents to 5 cents an hour. GREAT LAKES SEAMEN RE-ELECTED OFFICERS At the annual election of officers of the Sailors' Union of the Great Lakes, all of the present officers were re-elected without opposition for another year, as follows: General secretary, Victor A. Olander, Chicago treasurer, Claude M. Goshorn, Chi cago Buffalo branch agent, Patrick O'Brien Cleveland branch agent, E. J. Sullivan Detroit branch agent, George Hansen Milwaukee branch agent, Charles Bradhering. MILL OWNERS ADVISED TO RECOG NIZE UNIONS Gastonia, N. C.—The Daily Ga zette of this city advises mill owners to accept the inevitable and recognize organized labor. "The union is coming to southern mills, and the fact might as well be recognized," says this newspaper. "The mill operatives, in many cases, have just grievances and they ought Paint It Now!

The only way to do that is by mediation and conferences between owners and operatives." SENSE AND SPEED It has been rather well established that laws which arbitrarily fix speed limits for automobiles are little pro tection against accidents. The speed at which one may safely drive de pends upon the road and traffic con ditions involved. A high executive of one of the lead ing automobile manufacturing com panies who has made a close study of speed in its relation to accidents de clares that 50 or even 60 miles an hour over good open roads in the country may be safer than 15 miles an hour in cutting corners in town. The safe driver is not necessarily the slow driver, but one who uses common sense whether driving fast or slow. Careless driving while turn ing corners passing pedestrians, or other cars, crossing railroad tracks and maneuvering in congested traffic is the greatest menace to life and limb. Sense, not speed, is the important factor in determining whether a driver is safe or unsafe. BROOK HART PLANS FEDERAL PAY BILL Washington. Senator Brookhart will urge a revision of federal em ployes' salaries at the special session of congress, which convened April 15. The Iowa lawmaker is not hopeful of success at the special session, but will be prepared to urge its passage if the legislative program permits. The session is mainly intended to consider tariff changes and farm re lief. The regular session of con gress convenes the first Monday in December, when wage relief will be vigorously urged. The Brookhart proposal would carry out the intent of the Welch salary bill, which has been practical ly destroyed, as far as low-wage fed eral employes are concerned, by gov ernmental interpretation. TRADE UNION LAWS MUST BE OBSERVED Detroit, Mich.—Circuit Court Judge Brennan ruled that a worker must exhaust every law provided by his union before he can seek legal re dress for an alleged wrong. The decision is in line with inning erable court rulings. The court took this position in the case of a business representative of the Operating Engineers' Union who was dismissed from his position. In stead of carrying his case to the ex ecutive board of the international un ion, he rushed into the equity court and asked for an injunction. 'JIMMY" HAYS IS DEAD Detroit, Mich.—James Hays, for 14 years vice president of the Operative Plasterers and Cement Finishers' International Association, died in thjp city. He was an old-school trade union* ist. The funeral, held in St. Louis, was attended by scores of veteran organized workers.
