WIEN COME UNDER LAW Female Car Distributors Must Observe Hours of Labor Statute, Official Says Women employed as car distribu tors by railway companies are sub ject to the law fixing the hours of labor for females within the state, according to an opinion by Harold D. Shaft, assistant state attorney gen eral. Replying to a query from Rep resentative W. J. Flannigan, James town, Mr. Shaft said it was his opin ion that car distributors are engaged in interstate commerce. “The Power to regulate the agencies and instrumentalities of interstate commerce,” Mr. Shaft’s opinion said, “rests primarily in the congress of the United States and the state has no authority over such matters except to act in case congress has failed to act, and to make necessary regula tions for the health, safety and gen eral welfare of its people under its police power.” The federal government, Mr. Shaft said, has not seen fit to make use of its authority in the case of car dis tributors and that in the absence of regulation by an act of congress the state has authority to regulate the hours of labor of such employes. The state law fixing hours of labor, Chapter 142, Laws of 1927, provides that “no female shall be employed in any manufacturing, mechanical or mercantile establishment, laundry, hotel or restaurant, or telephone or telegraph establishment or office, or in any express or transportation company in the state of North Da kota morq than 816 hours in any one day or more than six days or more than 48 hours in any one week.” The duties of car distributors, ac cording to Mr. Flannigan, have to do with the office work in connection with distribution and storage of cars. These distributors sort and distribute foreign and line cars, fill orders of shippers and keep records showing the disposition of all cars handled from day to day.
