New England's
Labor Attacks
Lowell's Faith
BOSTON, Mass., March 27. -
Charging Harvard University with de-
fiance of the Massachusetts minimum
wage law for eight years the state
Federation of Labor joined the New
England CIO to question the faith of
Dr. A. Lawrence Lowell who demand-
ed government suppression of sit-I
down strikes.
In two telegrams sent by the labor
groups the six Bostonians and Pres-
ident-Emeritus Lowell of Harvard
who denounced sit-down strikes were
labeled as "financial Bourbons" and
"Brahmin mouthpieces."
The specific instance in which Dr.
Lowell's faith was questioned was in
regard to payment of Harvard Uni-
versity's scrubwomen at a wage of 35
cents an hour, less than the state
law's designation.

intervention in sit-down strikes.
The only strike situation in which
Federal action might be invoked, heI
said, are the following:
1. Where Federal laws are vio-
lated and where Federal property is
interfered with.
2. Where state authorities under,
the Federal law ask the services of
Federal agencies to preserve law and
order and to prevent violence.
Robinson said that except in in-
stances where one of these conditions
exists the Federal government can-
not act under the Constitution or
under a decree of courts.
"It is felt," he said, "that the sit-
down strike situation in a general
sense is improving."
STalks To President
Standing on the portico of the
White House. Robinson made the
statement after he and Vice-Presi-
dent Garner had talked for more than
two hours with Mr. Roosevelt.
Speaker Bankhead and Represen-
tative Rayburn (Dem., Tex.), House
majority leader, had conferred earlier
with the President for an hour.
Garner had nothing to say about
the conference except that he was
"deaf, dumb and blind."
Earlier Bankhead said only that
the general legislation situation was
discussed. He declined to say whe-
ther the conversation touched on sit-
down strikes.
This afternoon Secretary Perkins
told the President she believed the
sit-down movement soon would be
"on the wane."
Holt Attacks Lewis
On Capitol hill, meantime, legis-
lators continued to issue clashing
statements. Senator Holt (Dem.-
W. Va.) charged that John L. Lewis,
generalissimo of the unionization
drive which has been marked by sit-
downs, had enlisted the "united sup-
port of the Communist party."
Holt, the Senate's youngest mem-
ber, contended that "the American
form of government is being threat-
ened by the CIO, a 'Communist in-
spired order.'"
Senator Pope called the sit-down
strike an "effective" labor weapon
"which to some extent can be sup-
ported as a protective device for the
property rights of the laboring man
in his job and his desire to bargain
