J Thursday, March 21, 1940 INDIAN VAI,I,EY RECORD GENERAL HUGH S. JOHNSON UaR~ F~t ~VNU ~ WHY WHIP-SAW WEIR? It is hard for me to understand Why Mr. Weir should be singled out for any whip-sawing by New Deal Columnists because he accepted a ~d-raising post on the national Re- PUblican committee. If it is because he has a fortune, Qlea the Democrats had better pour :l~rne ink-eradicator over their own tecor.d. Johnny Raskob didn't hold exactly that post in 1928 but he was resPonsible for 'the financial end of ~e party effort. I don't know how 40hany,s fortune then compares With now, but it certainly wasn't hay. Among other things he had that year was to underwrite some of the Warm Springs obligations to raake it easier for Mr. Roosevelt to for governor of New York. Fat Cats Not Missing. Of course, it may be said that ohnny wasn't a New Dealer. Frank alker took over that responsibility hen Mr. Roosevelt ran in 1932, and rank is no potential pauper. The Democrats had their fat cats in both 1932 and 1936. The New Dealers haay kick such ~len around in the spotlight for the benefit of the audience--but they don't do it in the wings.

It's a day of feasting and most of us plan and plot for weeks ahead to give the family a truly delicious and unusual meal. Leg of lamb or baked ham are the traditional foods around which most of us plan our Easter menus. Either may be used in the menu below, to excellent advantage.

II TWO people were walking along a road together. One was a young woman, the other a hand- some farm lad. The farm lad was carrying a large pail on his back, holding a chicken in one hand, a cane in the other, and leading a goat. They came to a dark lane. Said the girl: "I'm afraid to walk here with you. You might try to kiss me." sharp remark. "I haven't a chance," the Mon- tanan was saying, "because John L. Lewis is for me. Another reason is that I was the running-mate of 'Old Bob' LaFollette in 1924. Still another is that Norman Thomas, who is here with us tonight, support- ed me. If he should do that again this year I'd be sunk sure." "Don't worry," drily called out Tlwmaa, 193~ Soclalist candidate, "I won't. I only support liberals who stay hitched." Note--Scrappy SEC Commissioner Leon Henderson, a third-term boost- er, offered to bet Tom Dewey $5 to $1 that the next President "is not in this hall," but the young New Yorker smilingly declined the offer. Henderson had no better luck with any of the other aspirants. Rated by the newsmen as the wit- tiest speakers of the evening were Democratic Bob Jackson and Re- publican Bruce Barton.

Hutton and the largest stockholder ' Of course, the attack on Mr. Weh Slides off into different ground. First, that he opposed collective bargain- inK; second, that William Green Once said that he offered labor noth- ing; third, that he once resisted in the courts a workers' election con- dUcted by the old NRA labor rela- tions board. The latter statement is true. He aPPealed to the courts against ille- gal action by that board--and won his case. Since when is that a dis- qualification? The other two state- rnents are untrue. When the New Deal and especially NRA, began its crusade for better labor relations, especially in the then crustacean Steel industry, they had no more sincere supporter than Mr. Weir. His own labor relations were good. I-Its was one of the first great com- Panies voluntarily to seek an elec- tion supervised by government to determine 2he question of majority representation. Agreed on Rules. The board held a hearing and agreed with the company and its employees on the rules for this elec. tion--which was then established Procedure before the old NRA board "~a creature of executive order rath- er than of statute. Mr. Weir went back to Weirton to carry out the agreement. On the eve of the elec- tlon an officious young lawyer of the later or janissariat type of fourth New Dealer appeared to supervise it and announced a radically dif- ferent procedure from that formal. ly and regularly decreed by the board. Mr. Weir refused to as- cept this new ukase ~nd was up- held in court. From that time on he got the worst running around and series of kicks in the pants of any industrialist of those times. At first hand, I don't know enough about developments since tO say Whether that soured his view "or changed his atti~de, but I do know that when the New Deal started he was considered by it the most lib. eral and progressive employer in his industry. U. S, KIDDED ON DRFENS~. This is the testimony of army offi- Cers before a senate subcommittee: Question: "How many anti-air- craft ~uns will you have at the end of this fiscal year?" Answer: "I understand that there are 144 heavy anti-aircraft and 48 ~ed~um caliber anti-aircraft in the defense of London. The guns we have on order will be delivered by ~eptember 1941. All but ~8 'will be delivered by November 1940." (This' figures a rate of deli~'y for the last 48 of a little'over 4 guns month.) Fresh Asparagus With Lemon Butter Sauce.

And it has just been revealed that General Seafoods, a subsidiary com- pany, has negotiated a deal with the government of Newfoundland whereby Newfoundland fish, canned and frozen by Newfoundland labor, will be able to put many New Eng- land fisheries almost out of business, What makes the situation embar- rassing for Ambassador Davies is that the deal was negotiated with the co.operation of the state de- partment, of which he is an influen- tial official. What happened was this: General Seafoods negotiated a contract with Newfoundland where- by the company set up a factory in Newfoundland to can, freeze and process fish. The Newfoundland government subsidized General Sea- foods to the tune of $200,000, and in return, General Seafoods agreed to employ only Newfoundland fisher- men to catch the fish, and New- foundland labor in the factory. s * $ MERRY-GO-ROUND Ex-Ambassador Joe Davies wears high silk hat and opera cape in going about Palm Beach in the eve- ning.
