Asked to Back National Re
covery Plan
New York City (ILNS)—Religious
leaders have urged Protestant, Catho
lic and Jewish congregations through
out the United States to actively sup
port the national industrial recovery
act program so "substantial progress
may be made toward a better social
order."
A statement urging support of the
recovery program was made by Dr.
John A. Ryan, director of the social
action department, National Catholic
Welfare Conference the Rev. Edward
L. Israel, chairman of the Central
Conference of American Rabbis, and
the Rev. James Myers, industrial sec
retary of the Federal Council of
Churches of Christ in America.
"The national industrial recovery
act commands our special interest be
cause of its ethical and human sig
nificance," the statement said, "and
because it has incorporated into law
some of the social ideals and princi
ples for which our religious organi
zations have stood for many years,
"How far the act can accomplish
the desired results remains to be
seen, but many of its provisions, par
ticularly those relating to the rights
of labor, are so forward looking in
their extent a3 to merit the heartiest
co-operation of all in realizing the
maximum social justice and economic
co-operation made possible under its
provisions.
"To th is end we urge church lead
ers to take an active part in develop
ing an informed public opinion in re
gard to the actual provisions of the
act, especially as they relate to the
rights and responsibilities of labor
employers and the public, in order
that in every community the great
est possible co-operation may be as
sured and the most substantial prog
ress may be made toward a better
social order."
The Federal Council of Churches
issued a letter strongly urging at
tention to the appeal.
ELKS7"DELEGATES
AT CONEVNTION
This is the big week of the year in
Elkdom. The occasion is the 69th an
nual convention of Elks at Milwaukee
which opened last Sunday, and con
tinues to Saturday. John Gebhart, ex
alted ruler of Hamilton Lodge No
93, and Dr. William M. Lebo, past
exalted ruler of the lodge, are at
tending delegates from Hamilton
Lodge. There are 423 lodges of Elks
represented at this year's session.
WESTERN UNION
RESTORES PAY CUT
Chicago (ILNS)—Evidence that the
Commercial Telegraphers* Union of
North America is making an impres
sion on the telegraph companies since
passage of the national recovery act
is shown in the announcement of a
10 per cent increase in wages by the
Western Union Telegraph Company
The ink was hardly dry on Presi
dent Roosevelt's signature to the re
covery bill when the first circular went
out to a selected list of Western Union
and Postal employes from C. T. U. of
N. A. headquarters. A second circular
followed signed by President Green
and Secretary Morrison, of the Amer
ican Federation of Labor, addressed
to wage earners in general, but ap
plicable to commercial telegraph
workers.
The Association of Western Union
Employes, the company unino, hap
pened to be in session in Washington
for its usual four-day session. After
the third week of milling ground, try
ing to find where the company union
fitted into the picture, delegates went
to Nw York and apparently the
Western Union officials decided the
best way to save the face of their
"employes' representatives" was
announce a restoration of the last 10
per cent cut. A total of 28 per cent
had been taken from the employes
while Canadian commercial telegraph
ers doing identical work suffered but
10 per cent deduction since May
1932.
When the piano at a Knoxville
Tenn., church sounded a discordant
note a tuner was called. He removed
a peck of acorns—the pastor blamed
squirrels.

JOHNNY CHUCK
DISCOVERS A GREAT
TRUTH
Whoever'* honest with himself
With others will be honest too.
Remember this where'er you go
And whatsoever you may do.
\IfHEN Johnny Chuck reached
home ha was so tired that for a
while he even forgot that he was
hungry. You know It was a long way
from the other side of the Old Or
chard down to that far corner for on«
so fat and stiff and sore as Johnny
Ohuck.
At first Polly Chuck would have
nothing to do with him. But when
after a nap Johnny came out to get
something to eat she saw how stiff
and lame he was and she -taw how

Chuck.
he had been torn by the teeth of
Reddy Fox. She had heard all about
that light from Sammy Jay and down
deep in her heart she was proud of
Johnny Chuck. Now as she saw his
wounds she was tilled with pity. Very
softly she sidled up to Johnny and
gently licked his wounds. She didn't
say a word, just licked and licked, oh
so tenderly.
With every touch of her tongue,
Johnny Chuck felt his anger because
she had refused to go away with him
uielt away. At last there wasn't a
KEEP THE CHANGE
fie—1 have been a bachelor for
years and now I long for a home.
She—Well, I hope you don't expect
me to furnish one.
Publicity
"A statesman must rely a great deal
on publicity," said the young man who
is learning politics.
"Yes," replied Senator Sorghum
"But It must be carefully managed.
His success may depend largely on
getting what he says into print and
keeping what he thinks out"
Knows All
"Say, Pop?"
"Yes, Sonr
"What do they mean by the *Mld
die ages'?"
"The 'middle ages,' Son, are the
ones where a woman stops counting
when she his reached them."
Frank About It
The floor manager called his Judges
together and told them that a frank
policy would be pursued about the
baby show.
"Huh?"
"First prlzt- will CO to the prettiest
another,"—Louisville Courier-Journal.
Eighty-Two Miles of Free Exhibits for Fair Throngs
bit left Never had clover tasted so
sweet and delicious. Never had the
rustle of leaves in the trees sounded
so pleasant. Never had the sky looked
so blue or the fleecy clouds so white.
Johnny sighed. It was a sigh of hap
piness and contentment.
"I'm glad I'm home," he said.
"So am I," replied Polly softly.
"Home Is the very best place In
all the Great World," continued
Johnny Chuck.
"Of course," replied Polly. "I've
known that ever since we've had a
home."
"And this home of ours Is the safest
and best home that ever was," said
Johnny. "I wouldn't trade It for any
other home anywhere In all the Great
World."
Polly Chuck smiled wisely, but she
said nothing and after a minute or
two, Johnny continued, "You mustn't
believe, my dear, all that is told you
of the wonderful things of the Great
World," said he. "It has uothing,
nothing at all to equal the peace and
comfort and safety of our own home
here."
Once more Johnny sighed and as be
fore It was a sigh of pure happinesa.
He had made a great discovery. He
bad discovered that the secret of hap
piness Is contentment, and that con
tentment Is to be found within, and
not without one's self. So desplts his
stiffness and lameness and soreness,
Johnny Chuck was happy, and being
happy, there was no room for bad
temper. Suddenly It came over him
that he was glad that Polly Ohuck had
refused to go away with him when
he had Insisted on looking for a new
home, and he told her so.
Polly made no reply, but went right
on licking Johnny Chuck's wounds,
and In every touch of her tongue was
love and Johnny knew It. Presently
when he had satisfied his hunger he
lay down for another nap and beside
him Polly Chuck sat up straight and
kept watch. And when Johnny Chuck
awoke they rubbed noses, which is
the Chuck way of kissing, and each
knew that the old home between the
roots of the old apple tree In the
far corner of the Old Orchard was
twice as dear as it had been before
Johnny Chuck went away to seek a
new home.

Browne of his friend. "You look as
If you've seen a ghost. Come and have
a good time on the river."
Sniythe shook his head dejectedly.
"No, thanks," he replied. "I'm not
enthusiastic just now."
"Come along," persisted Browne. "A
row on the river will cheer you up."
'No, I can't stand it," explained
Sniythe. "Every time I look at the
river it reminds me of the row there
will be when I got home. I've left the
faucet in the bathtub running!"
Why Not?
The little girl was reading labori
ously. "See Mary and the lamb," she
read slowly. "Does Mary love the
lamb, button-hook?"
"Why do you say button-hook?"
asked the teacher.
"Picture of a button-hook here," re
plied the child, pointing triumphantly
to the question mark.
Playing the Market
"Do you ever play the stock mar

"Only in a detached sort of a way,"
answered Senator Sorghum. "I often
find it desirable to play the stock mar
ket up when I am making speeches
about 'predatory wealth.'
A Curious Resemblance
"Mr. Groucher is always complain

"Such people," replied Miss Cayenne,

U. S. Sweatshop Inquiry

ter to Secretary of Labor Perkins, the
United Neckwear Makers' Union asks
a sweeping investigation of sweat
shop conditions in the men's neck
wear industry.

manufacturers out of business.
RETAIL STORES TO
BE UNDER CODE
Word comes from Washington this
week that Attorney General Cum
in ings made it clear that every laun
dry, every local motor repair shop
down to the very last store or fac
tory in Hamilton will be brought
within the codes of fair competition.
He dispelled the idea, prevalent
during the debate in congress on the
national industrial recovery act, that
he control would be limited to busi
ness extending into interstate chan
nels.
What the hours will be in the re
tail stores no one at this time knows,
as the code of retail business has not
yet been submitted. However, it is
most certain they will be fewer than
stores are conducted at present.
