SEEM UNION
Only Men Pickets Arrested
in Kansas City for Ford
Plant Activity.
By the Associated Press.
DETROIT. Dec. 17.—Police of sub
urban Dearborn loaded 208 union
members Into patrol wagons late yes
terday and hauled them to headquar
ters, breaking up another attempt of
the United Automobile Workers to dis
tribute literature to employes of the
Ford Motor Co.
Of those arrested, 203 were charged
with “obstructing traffic” on Miller
road In violation of a Dearborn ordi
nance and were released. The distri
bution of a union newspaper was
planned as another move in the U. A.
W. campaign to organize nearly 80,000
workers employed at the hugh Ford
River Rouge plant.
The C. I. O.-affiliated union has
called strikes in Ford assembly plants .
at Kansas City and St. Louis, but both
plants have continued to operate.
Shots were fired and automobile
windows were broken in three dis
turbances at Kansas City today, but
no one was injured. Fourteen women
picketed the Ford plant unmolested
for an hour, but 16 men trying the
same thing were arrested. Kansas
City police, accepting the Ford com
pany’s statement that it did not rec
ognize any strike, have made more
than 300 arrests for picketing since
the strike was called last Friday.
At St. Louis, where a strike was
called November 24, a national Labor
Relations Board hearing on a citation
charging the Ford company with un
fair labor practices opened today be

SENATOR BELIEVES
RECESSION WILLFUL
j Reynolds May Ask Probe to See
Whether Industrialists Hit
at President.
Bs the Associated Press.
Senator Reynolds, Democrat, of
North Carolina, said yesterday he is
considering asking a Senate investi
gation to find out whether wealthy in
dustrialists have wilfully precipi
tated the economic recession because
of "hatred” for President Roosevelt.
Senator Reynolds, a member of the
Banking Committee, said there had
been numerous instances of wholesale
-a m. 1
cancellation of orders for goods, and
that atop orders come from wealthy
manufacturers in widely scattered sec
tions.
"I would certainly like to know why
all these people found it necessary to
defer commitments all at the same
time,” he asserted, adding:
"There is something funny about the
situation, because otherwise there
couldn’t logically be this concentrated
action on thfe part of industry to im
pede the progress of recovery."
Senator Reynolds said he may in
troduce a resolution providing for a
Senate investigation "so we could call
these industrialists in and find out
why they have all cut down activity.”
