Wagner, of New York, in an address today before the convehtlon of the American Fed eration of Labor, placed responsibili ty for unemployment at the door of business and government leaders who neglect in prosperous times to prepare for periods of dfpression. He also assailed use of the injunc tion, the sole utpjty of which, he said, “la to httTfcia the Union, to hamper itr work and to render Inoperative the very function which the trade organization was designed to exer cise.” “Where,” he asked, discussing un employment, "is the worker who has not run the gauntlet of loss of work because of seasonal slack, of periodic depression, of foreign competition, of change in fashion, or machine substi tution?” “Having experienced those, how the unemployed worker must ironically smile when he reads the well mean ing advice extended to him that if only he would resume his normal purchases prosperity would resume its uninterrupted course. I wonder what his emotion is when he reads the official assurance that our fun damental national assets are undi minished. He knows only too well that he lives in a land of plenty which he had in the past shared in the making. These facts only aggravate the rancor in his heart that he must nevertheless go without work and without wages.” Senator Wagner asserted the Amer ican people will not “submissively accept these recurrent and lengthen ing periods of joblessness. They have learned, he said, they cannot live by optimism alone. He said it has been known for a long time that private industry could contribute to the stabilization of the seasonal and technological aspects of unemployment if it would assume more seriously the responsibility to provide regular employment, and the states and federal government could materially aid by timing the introduc tion of large projects into the mar ket so as to provide a flow of wages when other sources were dry, but that “we stubbornly refuse to put any such plan into systematic and effi cient operation.” The federation today voted to con tinue its organization campaign among the workers of the south. A resolution to that effect was adopted after Holt Ross, president of the Mississippi federation, denounc ed industrial exploitation of women and Children in the south and the use of what he termed “yellow dog” contracts and injunctions against or ganized labor. Previously, a report by the organi zation committee of the federation told of encouraging progress in the campaign to fmprove working condi tions in the south and stated that 112 new local unions had been insti tuted sinqe the organization cam paign was ordered at the 1929 con vention.

Otherwise they might have flown up the Irish channel and If their en gine trouble had been serious or their fuel had given out, they might have been forced down In the ocean.
