HOOVER SAYS SLUMP LIKE 79 IMPENDS NEW YORK. Dec. 3 (I.N.S.).—A warning against a slump similar to that of 1929 was made here by former President Herbert Hoover. In an address before a meeting of American Society of Mechanical Engineers, Hoover declared that to prevent another economic de bacle steps should be taken to make available to the consumer the sav ings effected by industrial improve ments. He said: "I am convinced that when we fully understand the eco nomic history of the period of the twenties, we shall find that the debacle which terminated another apparently highly pros perous period was largely con tributed to by a failure of indus try to pass its Improvement on to the consumer. We are headed in that same direction again unless we can bring the intelli gence and courage of the engi neer into industrial stateman ship. “If increased wages and profits are to absorb the sav ings which the engineer pro duces through labor-saving de vices and renewed and new methods, and there is not a re duction in price, which is es sential to increasing consump tion, thereby we are ourselves by our own neglect producing that mass of technological un employment. “Increasing prices merely be cause there is a rising demand defeats the very end which statesmanship requires in our industries at this time.” The former President spoke in connection with the presentation to Ambrose Swasey of Cleveland, 90-year-old builder of astronomical instruments, of the Hoover medal, "awarded by engineers to a fel low-engineer for distinguished public service.” BOMBiNrQUIZ INDICTS B SPRINGFIELD, Hl., December 3 (I.N.S.).—Government agents to day lifted the veil of secrecy blan keting their probe of the railroad and mine bombings which have spread terror in the mid-Illinois coal fields for three years, reveal ing 13 members of the insurgent Progressive Miners Union entan gled In the legal net. This disclosure came as a grand jury returned an indictment against Mrs. Jane Lee, 30-year-old wife of a miner, giving the first inkling of the revelations that are to come, authorities said. The indictment names 12 other per sons in connection with the bomb ing of homes, railroads and mines, outgrowth of the bitter fight be tween the Progressive Miners Union and the United Mine Work ers of America for supremacy in the Illinois fields. Mrs. Lee is specifically charged with perjury in testifying before the jury. It alleges she refused to substantiate affidavits previ ously made by her in which she implicated herself, her husband, and eleven others in the bomb ings. The true bill asserts that Mrs. Lee denied earlier statements that she and the others named played important roles in the bombing of an Illinois Central Railroad coal train here December 23, 1934.
