Problem at White House
Conference Monday.
DAVIS OPPOSES INCREASE
Labor Secretary Would Add
Restrictions Lalor Short-
age Considered.
WAFIUNGTOX, Dec. 1. (Py A.
) The whole problem of lmml-
ratlon wns discussed at length to
day by Tres't Harri In? and his cab
inet and It was indicated afterwards
that tills would bo one of tho eub
jeets with "which tho executive would
deal In his forthcoming annual ines
.ag to congress.
Wliile It was state! at the. White
Ho'ie that there had hern no le-
Irion arf to policy at the, cabinet
meeting, tome administration ottl
rera were under the impression that
Mr. Harding would propo.so a con
tinuation of the present- restrictive
law with certain amendments ppon-
(nrpflhrSoc'y D.ivi.s and designed to
raise the general standard of emi
grants cmbarkln? for tho 1'nited
states.
The labor secretary. It was said,
Is opposed to any increase of tho ex
1 1 1 n three percent limitation, at
leas until tho tide of immigrations
from northern and western Furope
reaches h) quota allowed by law.
Thus far the number of immigrants
comintr from those regions have
equaled only about 50 percent of the;
authorized maximum. On the other
hand, oüleial pointed out, the inflow
from pouthern Kurops has reached
the permitted maximum each year,
with many thousands of others in
that section seeking to come to this
country.
Would Conduct Tost Abroad.
Amendments to the present law
which Mr. Davis Is having prepared
would provide for an examination at i
debarkation ports of all emigrant
illens with particular reference to
character and to physical and mental
condition. There also would bo a
blood test. The examinations "would
bo conducted by public health and
immigration ofilcials stationed
abroad and would entail some en
largement of th" overseas forces of
loth those Services.
The immigration problem a3 ex
plained today presents many per
plexing" p hadert and any solution
might have its effect on general eco
nomic, conditions over the country.
It wan said that unless a shortage
of common 1 ibor could be relieved
through Immigration, there would be
a tendency toward higher wage of
this character of help with tenden
cies to other increases anil also for
farm hands to flock to industrial
centers. n the othT hand, atten
tion was cahea to the fact that a;
letting down of the immigration
bars might produce, an over-abundance
of labor with resaltant unem
ployment, a lowering of purchasing
power, and an economic depression

There Is a present shortage of,11 lUUUi UI i',U:VlUI3
