ENGINEER URGES GOVERNMENT
CONTROL OF ALL INDUSTRY
New York, Feb. 1. Federal control
of industry generally was advocated
today to the industrial relations com
mission by James Mackaye, a con
sulting engineer and economist, of
Cambridge, Mass. Only until the
government fixes a standard for each
industry with a minimum wage rate
and provision for a division of surplus
between the wage earners, the cus
tomers and the corporations them
selves, can industrial unrest be ended4
in his opinion.
"The government should fix prices
and generally supervise all business,"
he declared. "I believe the estab
lishment of such a plan would cheap
en the present outlandish high cost
of living and would remove abso
lutely the present industrial unrest.
It would make the employer and em
ployes pull together at all times."
Amos Pinchot again accused the
Associated Press of unfairness to
afior and said :
"My charges of misrepresentation
of labor by the Associated Press in
the Calumet and West Virginia
strikes have not been carried on the
wires of the Associated Press. That
organization has a rule in its by
laws which forbids the carrying of or
printing of any matter which it deems
derogatory to the Associated Press.
Editors who publish such matter are
subject to discipline and the loss of
the Associated Press franchise."
"Is there any record of that rule
being enforced?" demanded Chair
"Yes, sir. Mr. Medill McCormick,
the Chicago editor, was disciplined.
