Plan for Recovery.
One of the chief proposals to
come out of the attacks on mo

industrial licensing bill. This meas

control over industrial practices by
requiring every firm that engaged
in interstate commerce to obtain

Senator Austin, Republican, of Ver
mont declared yesterday In Senate
debate on the confirmation of Robert
H. Jackson to be solicitor general,
that the licensing bill would be another
step in “concentrating power” in the
Federal Government.
Senator O'Mahoney, Democrat, of
Wyoming, who with Senator Borah,
Republican, of Idaho has guided the
measure thus far independently of
the administration’s monopoly plana,
was quick to defend it. The legisla
tion would prevent both monopolies
and government, he said, from “inter
meddling with small business."
“I’ll agree that it would stop abuses,”
Senator Austin replied, “just as a
hanging will stop a pain in the neck.”
Senator King, Democrat, of Utah
commented the measure would “dis

Packer Tells Senators It
Raised Efficiency, Cut
Hours of Workers.
By the Associated Press.
A witness told the Senate unem
ployment Committee today that es
tablishment of an annual wage in his
business had brought a striking In
crease in efficiency of labor.
Jay C. Hormel, head of the Hormel
Packing Co., Austin, Minn., said his
concern began considering ihe effects
of hourly wages on labor in 1931. The
company decided the hourly wage had
been designed "mostly for the pur
pose of passing the effects of em
ployment fluctuations on to labor."
he said.
Mr. Hormel asserted an annual
wage was instituted to guarantee some
workers 52 pay checks over the year,
together with vacation and sick leave.
The system gradually was expanded,
he added, until it covered 2,373 of the
company's 4.000 workers last year.
"We don’t keep any particular check
on hours except for information pur
poses," Mr. Hormel said. "The idea
is that here is the work to do in a
particular department, and when it is
done the workers can go home." Mr
Hormel said his company was started
as a small butcher's shop by his
He asserted that the annual wage
system had increased efficiency from
10 to 20 per cent, and that it had
given workers more leisure time.
Mr. Hormel said his employes are
"well satisfied" with operation of the
company plan.
"I would have my plant tied up In
a strike if I tried to go back to an
hourly wage,” he said.
Mr. Hormel told the committee that
employes were given one year's notice
before they are laid off.
"Do you mean," asked Senator
Byrnes, Democrat, of South Carolina,
“that if your business slumps you will
stick out your chin and carry your
employes for a year'.1'’
"Yes. Senator." he replied. "We
have carried some as long as three
years. We try to be as fair to the
workers as we are to tile company offi
