SEEK PLAN 10 END LABOR TROUBLES PRESIDENT HARDING AND HIS CABINET ARE CONSIDERING MANY SUGGESTIONS, ACTION BY CONGRESS LIKELY bollh.n. f laber Bo.rd "d Enactment of Legislation Like Canada's Indui'rlal Disputts Inves tigation Law Proposed. By JAMES . HORNADAV Washington. President Harding and memlivrs of his cabinet Hre giving ri.reful consl loration to ninny sag n t how the country may obtain ii larger measure of freedom I fioin labor trouble. It In tlie pies Lent lull ni Ion of tlie President. II Is ! well understood, to discuss some of , tlie more pertinent of these sugges I lions In Ids address to congress in j I hn-emher. There Is apparently a Linernl demand throughout the coun try Hint congress slmll write into the law of the hind some new plnn for M,lng ,.,,,,, ,een capital ami nhor. It is a question whether much run he done with the subject nt the hurt session which will begin In te- a-fiutter iind end on Murch 4. In noun qimrtern there Is nlrendy tiilk of un extrn session next spring, which would lie devoted entirely to the subject of indiistrinl H-ii'e. There is a soinewhnt insistent de liuind llinl the Hdiidnlstriilion shall fvr legislation providing for com pulsory iirbitrntlon. but it Is renson- iihly certain Hint tlie administration will not lend Its Indorsement to such h program. Kven If the executive de partment should udvocate compulsory arbitration. It Is a question, it Is as- neried. whether congress could be per simdeil to follow tlie leadership of the President. As the tuution presents ltelf ni lliis time, two outstanding iiiijhimiiI nre belnu considered. 1. Tlie repenl of Hie provisions of the tmniMirliitlon act of livjo, under I which die mil rood lnlior hoard whs cr Hied. i The enactment of legislation pro- itlint: for some audi plan as is In i, ration in t'anada the eniiclinent of all Industrial disputes Investigation law. Stands by the Labor Board. 1 Thus far the Harding udministra i tion Iris not Indicuted that It hus lost faith In the railroad luhor hoard. In the contrary, the President has suld puldiely on several occasions during the last two months that he felt that the hoard hud Justified its existence. SiiiMrters of the railroad labor board not only would not like It abolished hut would like to see its powers broad ened and see It removed to. Washing tion and set down alongside the Inter state commerce oviiiinlssion. It i certain, however, that the board will he a real issue before congress when that body proceed to the considers tion of legislation relating to Indus trial disputes. When the transportation legislation was before congress early In 1020. ici.ny good things were said about the runadlun plan for settling labor trou blea, but the organized worklngiuen In the Vnlted Slates were not ready at that time to accept the Canadian law, and so congress dropped that plan and set up the railroad labor board. The situation lias undergone a change. Or ganized worklngiuen in the United States, and particularly organized rail road employees, are now very gen erally inclined to look with favor on the t'unadlan plan, so It Is asserted. Canadian Law Liksd. One of the urguments now being nut forth in support of Canada's law- is that the shopmen employed In Can ada by International railroads rail roMds tlmt have purt of their niile Hge In the I'nlted States "and part In Canada did not strike when their union brethren in the I'nlted Statea quit work. The international rail rouds of Canada reduced the wages of their shopmen, but Instead of strlk Ing the shopmen applied for boards of inquiry unci conciliation under the Industrial disputes act. This ma chlncry has thus far prevented any walkouts on the Canadian railroads. I'nder the Canadian law a board Is appointed for each Individual dispute. It consists of three members, one named by the employees directly con cerned, one by the company, and the third. If these two shall full to agree, by the government. The awards of these boards are not compulsory. After the award under the CuDiidlun law has been made, either aide may re fuse to accept It. Hut it la asserted that the law has maintained Industrial peuce throughout Cauada since It was enacted ; and the law has of course had Ha trial through the after-the-war reconstruction period a period that has produced many labor troubles la Canada and elsewhere. It Is certain that when congress con venes, either In special session In No vember or la regular session In Pav ceinber, there will be a flooa) of bills proposing ways for settling strikes. The administration U obviously am bitious to have a program of Its own a program that will appeal to the country and to congress. It is with this In mind that the President la tak ing counsel from week to week with men whose advice Is wortis listen ing to. Mere Long-Time Bonds.

On January 1. llli'l. -,"", (SKI of war savings certificates become payable, but the treasury haa already announced a new offering of treasury savings certificates with a view to re funding as much us possible of the ma turity into obligations of the same gen eral diameter and with the same ap peal to the needs of the small Investor. The treasury will shortly announce Kieclul ruciiuies ior me nnmniic " maturing war savings certificates tor the new treasury savings certificates, and plans In this manner to provide for a substantial part or the war sav ings maturity. The only treasury cer- tlllcates maturing In the second nun of the fiscul year r.'J.'l. are about (NMI.umi on March 15. IDil, and about J":.(SHMS0 mi June l.i, 1323, botn of which are covered by the Income ami prottts tax payments estimated foi those dates. On May 20, 1923. the re niaiiilng f::.MX.sH) of 44 per ceul Victory notes will mature. The maturities which remain and have to be refunded, the treasury will meet through Issues of refunding secu rities. proHTly adjusted to market con ditions. mid Secretary Mellon believes It will be able to meet them without disturbance to the markets and with out strain on the fumnclnl machinery. Market Hasn't Been Disturbed. During the course of the refundlm operations whjch have been In prog ress, the treasury has Issued from time to time treasury certificates of Indebtedness, treasury notes and treas ury savings certificates, all relatively short term. These operations hav been successful and have been accom plished without disturbance to th market for outstanding securities. With the announcement of the bonds now offered, the treasury Is adding to Its list a refunding Issue of long-time bonds. These Ismus will provide through exchungoe and otherwise, for a substantial part of heavy maturities falling mi December 13, and tlie success of the offering will leave only a nonnal amount of financing j to be placed on thnt date. It Is four years since the treasury has offered to the people of the United States un Issue of long-time govern, went bonds. During that period It has been financing Itself on a short term basis, and It has succeeded In placing with investors throughout the country a great volume of treasury certificates and treasury notes. The whole situation in regard to Liberty bonds and Victory bonds which the Ainerlcau people purchased so gen. erously during the war has shown great improvement within the last few months. The treasury department Is of the opinion thut there' Is small like lihood of these bonds ever going be low par again, and says that undoubt edly a great many persons who sold their holdings of these bonds when their value was depressed uow regret that action. ( Prevention of Goitre. Goitre seems to be prevalent In some sections and it now seems that Its ravages may be easily prevent e "Simple goitre is the easiest of ill dlseoses to prevent," wrote Doctor Marine, the great specialist In thta disease, some time ago. Iodine la known to be necessary to the normal function of the thyroid gland. Goitre Is an expression of deficiency of Iodine In the thyroid, and the elaborate expe riments made recently by Dr. O. P. Kimball on the sclnxd children of Ak ron, O. furnish conclusive evidence that administering a minute quantity of Iodine every day acts as a preventa tive In such regions where goitre pre vails.
