Approves Bill for Equal
Labor Voice in NRA
Washington, D, C. (ILNS)—The
house labor committee has voted to

The bill would apply particularly to
Labor leaders testifying before the
committee during hearings on the
measure said that one of the princi
pal reasons for failure of the NRA to
help labor has been the overwhelming
preponderance of industrialists on all
