Wage-Hour Bill Is Threatened
By MichiganNewsboy's Suit



A potential challenge to the con-1
stitutionality of the New Deal5s
Wages and Hours Law arose last weekr
when a 13-year-old Michigan boy'sr
suit to retain his newspaper delivery
route was upheld in the Gratiot-Clin-
ton Circuit Court.
The suit, started Dec. 10 by Mac
Myers of Ithaca who delivered the
Lansing State Journal to sixty-five
customers after school hours, pro-*
tested the cancellation of his carrier;
contract by the newspaper in order
to comply with the child labor provi-
sions of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
The boy was represented before
Judge Kelly S. Searl by his father,
John W. Myers, an Ithaca lawyer.
Nicholas E. Allen, attorney for the
Children's Bureau of the Department
of Labor, attended the hearing but
did not take part.
Questioning the constitutionality
of the law, Judge Searl ruled that the
act did not apply in the Myers case.
He granted an injunction restraining,
the newspaper from breaking the car-
'rier contract and formally establish-
ing the status of young Myers as an
"independent contractor" not subject
to the provisions of the act. The Lan-
sing Journal had ended the boy's con-
tract because he was under the 14-
year age limit for employees speci-
fied in the Wages and Hours Law.
Duce, Fuehrer
To Move Jews

Discussing the constitutionality of
the act, Judge Searl wrote: "The child
labor section of this act attempts to
delegate arbitrary powers to the chief
of the Children's Bureau of the De-
partment of Labor. This delegation of
power, without any provision for re-
view by the courts, probably renders
the statute unconstitutional."
"If the utterly fallacious ana un-
sound theories of well-meaning re-
formers, which find expression in this
act, are adopted," Judge Searl added,
"it will result in the filling by the
coming generations, of the reforma-
tory institutions and prisons beyond
their capacity."
"The failure," he concluded, "of
parents to teach and compel children
to perform reasonable and proper
labor while yet young is the prime
cause of the wave of crime. in this
country, and such failure should not
be encouraged by any law."

LONDON, Jan. 6.-(P)-Reliable
sources reported tonight that Pre-
mier Mussolini had agreed on a re-
quest from President Roosevelt to
ask Chancellor Hitler's aid in get-
ting Jews out of Germany.
It was understood that Mussolini,
after seeing United States Ambas-
sador William Phillips on Jan. 3,
telephoned Hitler at Berchtesgaden.
Hitler's reaction was not disclosed.
Prime Minister Chamberlain was
said to have given his support to
President Roosevelt's proposals and
to have offered to give whatever as-
sistance he could during his visit
with Mussolinilnext week. The Brit-
ish Premier, it was said, would take
full details of the proposals with him
on his Jan. 11-14 Italian trip.
Ambassador Phillips was said to
'have asked that Mussolini support
more lenient terms for the emigra-
tion of Jews from Germany.


Anarchy Was Planned
He said that the conspirators who
precipitated - the revolt deliberately
attempted to provoke a state of an-
archy by systematic violence and re-
ferred to the authorizedautobiogra-
phy of Francisco Franco and the
biography of General Mola, who was
killed early in the rebellion, to prove
his statement.
He contrasted the present attitudes
of the Loyalist and Rebel govern-
ments. "The Loyalists," he said, "have
proposed terms of peace which include
a total amnesty to be followed by a
plebiscite to determine the govern-
ment of Spain. They guarantee relig-
ious freedom and in fact the churches
in Loyaist Spain are ready to be
opened right now as soon as the Vati-
can says the word.
"In contrast there is the recent
expression of General Franco who
said that there are 2,000,000 'crimi-
nals' who will be made to pay for
the war if he is victorious and has
laid plans for a fascist dictatorship."
He characterized the non-Interven-
tion agreement as a connivance on
the part of the British and French
governments with Hitler and Musso-
lini to hand Spain to Franco out of
a bogus fear of Communism, when
in reaity the Communist threat was
so great that as late as 1935 'a Com-
munist demonstration in Madrid re-
quired police protection.
