floor for consideration.
The measure would set an ini
tial minimum wage of 25 cents an
hour for all industry, in inter
state commerce or "affecting" in
terstate commerce, except agricul
ture. increasing at a mandatory
rate of five cents an hour each
year until it reaches 40.
The initial maximum work week
is -14 hours, decreasing to 40 by
two steps.
The bill would be administered
bv the secretary of labor with en
forcement vested in the justice
department. Violation would be
punishable by a $500 fine and
six months imprisonment.
The committee agreed to the
bill by 14 to 4 after rejecting a
flexible measure prepared by a
subcommittee headed by Repre
sentative Robert Ramspeck, D.,
(la., and providing for administra
tion by a board empowered to re
lax stated annua) wage increases
if living costs and the value of
service did not. in the board's
opinion, justify the increase.
Regardless of the contents of
the bill, however, it is expected to
meet strong opposition, particu
larly from southern congressmen
who say it is impossible to impose
standards which would be equit
able in both the north and the
south. In addition administration
leaders have put on a drive for
adjournment by May 14 and with
President Roosevelt's recovery
program up for action, little other

SACKAMKXTO, Cal., April 15
(LP).—Fifty-eifiV.v nines north ol
Los Angeles, on a level stretcl
overlooking the Pacific Ocean
California has constructed what
state officials believe to be among
the finest institutions for treat
merit of the insane in the L'niteii
The plant, Camarillo state hos
pital, receives patients suffering
from all types of insanity.
When the six-year building pro
gram is completed, Camarillo wil
represent an investment of $8,
000,000. It will house $6000 pa
Present quarters will accomo
date 24,000 patients. Addition:
will include a female unit (pa
tients ol both sexes currently ar»
housed in the finished building)
a research building, medical unl
and quarters for aged, infirm ant:
auberculosis mental cases.
lJuuring the Ibienniun
the project will be materially ad
vanced through allocation of $2,
7<>7,000 in building funds.
Because of moderate land costs
and a climate favorable to the
Spanish type of architecture
C.'amarillo is said to provide ad
vantages not found in most insti
tutions for the insane.
The present unit includes the
series of low, red-roofed build
ings usually associated with tht
Spanish design. Kach has its en
closed patio or courtyard, offer
ing exercise facilities.
"We'll have to recognize thai
California possesses unusual cli
matic features," declared Harrj
Lutgens, state director of institu
"This gives us a chance to per
mit the patients exercise frequ
ently, in an enclosed yard when
they can be supervised. We have
plenty of room on the grounds
and for that reason we were gen
erous with recreational fields."
Camarillo includes h centra!
patio covering ^even acres, which
serves a sthe principal play
ground. Tennis, softball and bad
minton are more than merely dec
orative, Lutgens pointed out.
"In case of catastrophe we can
get fhe. patients out much faster
and the style of building insures
adequate ventilation."
To many a disordered mind, the
calm expanse of the ocean will
bring peace. >
The institution receives pa
tients from Santa Barbara and
Kern counties, and a limited num
ber from l.os Angeles county. Fie
cause of its setting, the applica
tion list is large but necessarily

In other words, the high re flee t

Iowa Tractors

I>ES MOINES, la., April 1
(II}')—Tractors have made such
inroads on the number of horses
on Iowa farms that at present the
'state's horse population is about>
the same as that in 1H79.
Leslie M. Carl, federal agricul
tural statistician, reports that a
livestock census revealed there
were approximately 824,000 head
of horses in Iowa on January I,.
19.'18. The present figure compar
ed with 1,067,000 head, or about
twice as many, on January 1,
I 1914. The number has declined
each year since then.
Mules, estimated at f>7,000 head
January 1, also have declined
steadily since January 1, 1927,
, when they numbered 101,000
• In comparison with a year ago,
horse numbers are down 5 per

As the peacock is the most beautiful of
birds, the General Electric is the most
beautiful of refrigerators. General Electric
refrigerators have been strikingly styled
for lasting beauty by Roy Patten, one of
America's foremost creative artists. They
are acclaimed by women everywhere as
today's most beautiful refrigerators.
But As Beautiful As It Is,
Beauty Is Only Skin Deep
Thrifty, careful buyers will not be satisfied
with beauty alone. Discriminating buyers
want to know what lies beyond its exterior.
And here General Electric also excels, for
under its glistening beauty is found the
heart of the refrigerator—the sealed in
steel mechanism wiih oil cooling and pres
sured lubrication. Only General Klectric
gives you this, and with it triple thrift Gives
you greater dollar for dollar value, lower
current cost and longer refrigerator life.
