ment is expected today to end the
19-day strike involving 9,000 work

yesterday afternoon after a con

of the agreement, it was an

agreement, particularly with re
gard to the right of collective
With settlement of the strike
expected today, it was estimated

to take over their posts as soon
as hostilities were called off.
Only two policemen were on
duty at the plant yesterday.

NEW YORK. Dec. 2 (1.N.5.).
Mayor Fiorello H. LaGuardia to
day issued what he grimly termed
his “Christmas message to the
underworld." It was:
"All the punks, crooks and
racketeers will be driven from
Speaking at the opening of a
new felony court, the rotund lit
tle mayor paid his respects to “cer
tain people—people I wouldn’t let
come into my home.” He added:
“They are no good, they
never were any good, and we
don’t want them in this town.
If they show their faces, they’ll
get a hot reception.”
And as for "constitutional
"I want to talk about the con
stitutional rights of the victims
of criminals—of the widow and
the children of the men mur
dered by racketeers. They have
constitutional rights, too. So
has the little business man who
is the victim of racketeers. So
has the girl who is assaulted by
1 the degenerate and the thug.”
He also took a rap at criminals
who “cry baby” that police beat
confessions out of them. He said:
“The victim of such a ‘cry
baby’ may still be in the hos
pital at the point of death. What
would you have the police do—
kiss the criminal?”

"No. 1” in the greatest peace
time draft on record, the registra
tion of 26,000.000 American em
ployes under the old age retire
ment benefit program, went to a
23-year-old Princeton graduate who
Is employed in his father’s Brook
lyn electrical supply company,
and voted as an avowed Landon
supporter in the recent presiden
tial election.
John David Sweeney, jr„ whose
registration makes him as famous
as the first name drawn in the
World War draft, learned of his
distinction yesterday after his
Social Security application was
filed as the first account at the
Baltimore offices of the Social Se
curity Board.
Young Sweeney, whose home is
in New Rochelle, N. Y., will be
eligible to receive monthly pen
sion checks in 42 years if he lives
until he becomes 65 and fulfills
minimum work requirements.
While opposed to New Deal
theories and measures he said
that he was in favor of the Social
Security program.
Thieves early today worked hard
to break open two safes in the of
fice of the Moyer Coal Corpora
tion, 6301 Blair Rd. N. W., and
found they contained notes, deeds
and other business papers but
very little cash.
One of the safes contained ap
proximately 400 and most of that
was in checks, Macon L. Moyer,
head of the firm, declared.
His personal safe, which appar
ently was the one most easy to
open, contained the business
papers, Mr. Moyer said. The coal
corporation safe contained the cur
rency, but Mr. Moyer said he could
not tell how much of that had
been taken because police re
quested him not to touch the safe
pending the arrival of fingerprint
experts from detective headquar
The thieves entered the place
after breaking a glass panel out of
a rear door. The combinations
were knocked from the safes and
no explosives were used to open
them. James Travers, of Edmond
son, Md., the corporation’s weigh
master, discovered the broken j
safes when he appeared for work. I

We know that you want butter that Is
always sweet and fresh—like the scent of
meadows on a sunny summer day.
We also know that one little slip Is too
many. So our inspectors start with the dairy
herds. They can almost call the cows by
their first names. Selected modern cream
eries ship us their entire output. That gives
us the right to insist upon unvarying quality.
Other hawk-eyed inspectors at our ware
houses test and taste the Incoming butter
—discard whole shipments for slight flaws
of flavor the average housewife might miss.
