Drive Planned
For Congress
Senator Wagner Working
For Change In Section
Seven-A Of NRA
WASHINGTON, Jan. 6-(/P)-Or-
ganized labor, with an assurance of
some sympathy in both the senate
and house, today drew plans for a
legislative drive to bring a 30-hour
work week into all industries.
Senator Wagner, chairman of:the
national labor board, disclosed today
he is working on legislation to revise
the labor section of the national re-
covery act, and to vest additional
powers in the labor board.
Shorter working hours were advo-
cated by Wagner also, but he ex-
pressed belief the reductions should
be made by code authorities and ad-
ministrators, rather than by con-
"I favor a reduction of hours," he
said, "but I don't want to see an in-
flexible rule. As a general proposi-
tion, I feel that prevailing hours are
too high."
Leaders of the Federation of La-
bor, and Chairman Connery of the
house labor committee, however,
were outspoken in advocating a 30-
hour week for all the nation's in-
Connery also was critical of the
enforcement of the NRA.

Commander R. T. Gould, wlso has
made a study of the sea monster
myth. He believes the monster could
exist in Loch Ness quite nicely. It
was seen, too, from a tug by Mr.
Robert McConnell. The Scotsman,
which wants the world to take this
monster story with thetproper
amount of respect, says of this: "The
fact that the creature was sighted
from a boat should go far to remove
what scepticism remains."
Business enterprise has not been
neglecting the beast. W. Alexander &
Sons, Ltd., has applied to the Traf-
fic Commissioners of Southern Scot-
land for a license to run a bus to
the loch for the purpose of trans-
porting all people, if any, who want
to take a look at the monster, if it is.
Legislative authority is not lacking
either. Sir M. Macdonald, M. P. for
Inverness-shire, has proposed an Act
of Parliament for the "protection"
of the monster.

When Your Clothes Are
"Microcleaned" No Excess
Oil Is Left In Them to Pick
Up Dust and Dirt .. .
T HE Microcleaning Process thoroughly
dissolves and rinses out all the grease and
dirt. It does not leave a residue of fine oils
or grease in the fibers to pick up dust and dirt,
yet it does not affect the natural oils in the
fibers themselves.
Absolutely no strong harsh chemicals, that
might "tender" the fabrics, are used - the
finest silks and woolens can be safely Micro-
cleaned because of this.
