ST. PAUL, May 27 —Prank Meyers
drove his taxicab around St. Paul

Mr. Meyers, 62, says he is worth
“more than $250,060.” He took the
cab driving job, which pays an aver

His boss at die oab.company, Emil

The wealthy taxi driver and his

Profit Before Prices,
Reserve Board Says
By th* Associated Press
A business recession, even if one
comes, won’t necessarily mean lower
prices at the outset, the Federal
Reserve Board said today.
The board also expressed belief
that business profits, rather than
wage earners, would be the first to
feel the effect of a recession.
The board's statement came on
the heels of a Commerce Depart
ment report that the long upsurge in
business activity halted in April.
The Reserve Board indicated cau
tiously that if high or rising prices
keep business receipts up, the rela
tively large portion going for profit
—as against the portion going for
wages—might have repercussions in
the present high level of employ
Liquid Assets Noted.
Noting that business has com
paratively large liquid assets—cash
and Government securities — the
board's May bulletin said:
"In the ease of a recession » * •
the increased business liquidity may
have the effect of reducing the need
for forced liquidation and of delay
ing businesses, in making the price
cuts, cost reductions and other re
adjustments that generally accom
panying recessions.”
In language more readily under
standable to an economist than to
the average reader, the board said:
“In looking ahead it should be
recognized that lower taxes, a large
’‘ volume of operations and rising
i prices have been the crucial ele
ments in the recent business finan
cial Situation and ip the increase
■ In business profits after taxes.
‘This increase in profits has bean

that business activity still is at a

Maryland AFL Urged
To Work to Improve
Conditions for Labor
By Frank Acosta, Jr. •
Star Staff Correspondent
BALTIMORE, May 27.—Joseph
McCurdy, international president of
the United Garment Workers, today
told the 500 delegates to the District
of Columbia and Maryland Federa
tion of Labor convention that their
future hope lies not in politicians
but in their own strength and de
termination to improve the work
ing conditions of the laboring man.
Mr. McCurdy was the first speaker
at today’s session. Th6 federation
opened its four-day gathering at the
Southern Hotel here yesterday.
Nominations for officers for the
comine year will take place this
High light of the first day’s meet
ing was a warning by Frank Fenten,
AFL director of organization, that
labor must fight with everything in
its power to prevent passage of the
present labor bill as voted by the
House. \
“If this bill passes.” Mr. Fenton
said, “it will be time for labor to
re-appraise its traditional non
partisan stand in politics to protect
Hits Injunction Clause.
He said the most vicious portion
of the House bill was that which
would do away with the Norrls-La
Guardia Act, which bans injunctions
against strikes.
“It is almost unbelievable in free
America that we shall return to
government by injunction as pro
vided in this bill,” he asserted. “I
hope that President Truman will
veto the bill, and I hope you will
urge him to do so.”
Mr. Fenton also urged the dele
gates to do all in their power to
solve the f'ew jurisdictional disputes
that arise, commenting that this is
the one labor difficulty of the day
which can be solved best by itself.
During the morning session, the
delegates unanimously passed a res
olution to be presented to the Bal
timore City Council, asking that
body to urge a presidential veto of
the bill if it passes. The resolution
also will be sent to President Tru
man and heads of the Labor com
mittees of both House and Senate,
as wiy as the Maryland Legislature.
Cohen Opens Meeting.
Harry Cohen, president of the
Baltimore Federation of Labor,
opened the meeting with an official
welcome to the delegates. The Most
Rev. Lawrence Shehan, auxiliary
bishop of Baltimore, delivered the
invocation and welcoming speeches
were also made to the group by
Mayor Thomas D’Alesandro and
Gov. Lane.
Before adjourning -for lunch, the
delegates stood for one minute in
silent prayer for the late Archbishop
Michael J. Curley. Frank J. Cole
man, of Washington, secretary of
the federation, told the group that
the Catholic prelate had been one of
labor's best friends,
on the floor when the nominations
are opened. Mr. Cohen is a candidate
for president and will be opposed by
Frank Bonadio, business agent for
the Baltimore local of the Sheet
Metal worKers. me position nas
been thrown open by the resignation
of Robert J. Buxbaum, who was
made an international representa
tive of the AFL.
Mr. Coleman also is up for re-elec
tion%as well as three other District
men—Clement F. Preller and Charles
B. McClosky, vice president, and
Robert Lester, treasurer.
