FORD RADIO PROGRAM >Vit Q W a ring s Pennsylvanians: Sunday, 8:30 P.M., We are now ready to deliver the new 1934 V-8 Ford Clements Motor Co. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 1934 made, according to Capua M Waynick .State director of the National Reem ployment Service, is that since the of $950,000,000 has been passed, the bill carrying the new appropriation F.mergency Relief Administration is no longer bound by the regulations made necessary in the expenditure of the $400,000,000 allotted to it from the Public Works Administration. These old regulations made it raan adatory that the same wage scale be paid on CWA projects as on PWA projects, or from 45 cents and hour for unskilled labor to sl.lO an hour for skilled. They also required that the money could be expended only on certain types of construction work and on public property. Nor did the regulations reqquire that those CWA workers enroll for the Reemployment Service must be anything more than unemployed, with the result that a son of a man who might have an income of SIO,OOO a year could get a CWA job if he was unemployed. But under th enew regulation just promulgtaed by Harry L. Hopkins, di rector of the Emergency Relief Ad ministration, following the enactment of the new law, and which removed all the old PWA regulations, the fol lowing rules are already m effect: 1. In any and all replacements made on CWA projects from now on, only those “in dire need” shall he given jobs. 2. All those found not t oho “in dire need of work’’ are to be laid off as rapidly as possible. 3. That those dropped from CWA sobs must be those from families in which others are gaining employ ment, even if only one person in the family .is working. 4. The rate of pay for various class es of labor shall be the same as in the various communities in which they are employed, provided that it shall not be less than 30 cents an hour for skilled labor, the same pro vision that formerly applied lo all Emergency Delict work projects. The hours for the present are to remain at 24 hours a week in cities and towns of less population and in rural dis tricts. 5. Needy women must be given the same consideration as needy men. 6. While workers are to he select ed from both the Reemployment Serv ice as well as relief rolls and must he registered with the Reemployment Service, they must hereafter he "in dire need” as well as unemployed to secure jobs. There are several factors hack or these new rulings. One of the first things they are designed to do is to stop the scramble for CWA jobs by those who were not in need but who w<ve attracted by the pay schedule of 15 cents to sl.lO cents an hour, hut which will now he only from 30 cents to 45 cents an hour. The second fac tor is to limit all CWjA employment only for those in actual need and with no means of support, which could not be done under the old PWA regulations. Another reason for the regulation undoubtedly is to make the CWA unattractive as a. political pie counter. They get killed every winter, and we see ’em next fall on Broadway.
