SPRAGUE APPEALS'
FOR NEW PRODUCTS
Former Brain Truster Ad
vances Proposal as Means
of Ending Slump.
By the Associated Press.
NEW YORK. Feb. 3 —A former top
Roosevelt economic adviser. Prof.
O. M. W. Sprague, suggested to busi
ness today that a greater exercise of
its “imagination”—to discover prod
ucts that the people would buy at low
prices—would help to beat the reces
sion.
Prof. Sprague participated last night
before the economic club in a general
discussion—sometimes gloomy, some
times hopeful—of the industrial situa
tion.
The blame for the present situation,
he said, rested on both Government
and business, and smiling benignly he
advised:
“• * * We had better not Just
throw bricks and develop distrust of
each other.”
He remarked he thought it would
be a “very desirable thing if there
were no press conferences in Wash
ington for the next three months.”
Then, he said, “in the course of
that period I have at least a faint
hope that the authorities might make
up their minds as to what they think
ought to be done."
But. as some in the audience were
applauding that thrust at the admin- -
istration, he went on to say he thought
business was more responsible than
Government for the trouble.
Homer Martin, head of the C. I. O.
Automobile Workers’ Union, ad
dressing the same meeting, asserted
a “catastrophic depression” was 5
threatening industrial workers through 1
the “latest failure of private enter- !
prise to provide economic and social !
security for the wage earners.” !
George M. Verity, chairman of the 1
American Rolling Mill Co., blamed 1
the business decline on “the wide- I
spread and growing antagonism be
tween the administrators of Govern
ment and the representatives of bust- '
ness.”
In a question period after the ■
speeches, Wendell Willkie. head of the
Commonwealth Southern Power Corp.,
said the whole meeting had been “a
delightful world of make believe.” and
that he. personally, had not had “a
damn bit of confidence for five years.”
ROBBERY VICTIM
SHOT IN TUSSLE
$30 Taken From William Tucker,
Financial Secretary of
Plumbers' Union.
William Tucker, 61, of 3016 Georgia
avenue NW., financial secretary of
the District Plumbers’ Union, was'
robbed of S30 of union dues money i
and shot in the leg last night by a
bandit who held him up as he alighted
from a street car near his home.
Mr. Tucker refused to comply with
the bandit s demand to surrender his
brief case containing the money. They
struggled for a few moments. The
hold-up man took the case and fired
once, the revolver bullet striking the
union secretary in the left leg.
The bandit fled to a waiting auto
mobile, in which an accomplice was !
at the wheel, and escaped.
A police scout car took Mr. Tucker 1
to Garfield Hospital, where he was
treated for a flesh wound and then
allowed to go home. He had attended
a meeting of the union at its offices,
1024 New Jersey avenue N.W., where
he had collected, the dues.
Two other robberies occurred during
the night. Sam Pruitt, employe of a
drug store in the 1900 block of Penn
sylvania avenue N.W., answered a call
to a building in the 2100 block of
Pennsylvania avenue to deliver a quart
of whisky and to have change for <10.
In the rear of the building two white
men met him and robbed him of the
whisky and money.
Margaret L. Buckler, 4434 South
Dakota avenue N.E., told police a
white man with a handkerchief over
the lower part of his face snatched her
purse containing 90 cents from the
front seat of her automobile as she
parked in front of her home early
today.

CLYDE D. GARRETT.
REPRESENTATIVE CLYDE
L. GARRETT.
Clyde D. Garrett, lawyer, with offices in the Colorado Build
ing, is a member of the Republican Committee on Program.
Representative Clyde L. Garrett is a prominent Texas Democrat,
one of the hardest working members of the Texas delegation
in Congress—and as deeply dyed a Democrat as there is in
either House.
Through a mix-up in The Star’s files yesterday Representa
tive Clyde L. Garrett’s picture roas represented as that of Mr.
Clyde D. Garrett which made Representative Garrett a Repub
lican and created consternation among his fellow Democrats.
The Star regrets the mistake and assures its readers that
Representative Garrett is as good a Democrat as he ever was
and that Mr. Garrett, the Republican, is still a Republican.
