Salary Study

"Salary Determination," a book
by Prof. John W. Riegel, director of
the Bureau of Industrial Relations,
deals with considerations which af-
fect values of positions and the
compensations of individuals whol

The book, which will be on sale in
December, has been writtep as a re-
sponse to many requests for informa-
tion on the subject it covers, from
hundreds of business men, he con-
tinned. It should be of value to!
both the employer and the employee,
in relation to every kind of job, from
routine work to managerial positions,
Professor Riegel added.
Spent Two Years Studying
Professor Riegel has spent more'
than two years of part-time work
in writing "Salary Determination,"1
visiting 40 carefully selected com-
panies in order to study the methods
they use in evaluating services of

.than 151 of the outstanding business
executives of the Middle West to-

ences, Professor Rielgel emphasized,
no attempt was made to influence
discussion, and material obtained
from the meetings is the result of in-
dependent discussion and study by
the men attending them.
Valuable To Business lVren
"Salary Determination," Professor
Riegel ,pointed out, serves as a sort-

than as any setting-forth of definite

Business men, he continued, should

Fuller Sees Man
In dFai Labo


Administrator May
'Trouble -Shooter'
Behalf Of Labor


General Brown
Black future

LANSING, Nov. 20.-()-State
officials divided .into two camps to-
day in a controversy provoked by
statements of Auditor General Ver-
non J. Brown that Michigan's "pay-
as-you-go" plan of financing its gov-'
ernment has collapsed.
Brown declared the budget was out
of balance, and that the .incumbent
Republican administration would add
to the $32,000,O00 general fund de-
ficit it inherited from its Democratic
predecessor. Brown is a Republican.
Emerson R. Boyles, Governor Dick-
inson's legal adviser, tartly replied'
that .there would be no overdrafts
unless Brown permitted them. Boyles
declared he and Qovernor Dickinson
planned to make it their business to
see that there was no deficit, even
if the .legislature would have to be,
,recalled for a special session to enact
some revenue-rasing measure.
Budget Director G s T. Hartman
-entered the controversy with a state-
mwent that new taxes were not needed.

Although the principles of wage,
hour, and child labor regulation in-
volved in the Fair Labor Standards
Act have gained wide popular support,
there are formidable problems in its
administration which must be solved,
Prof. Richard C. Fuller of the sociol-
ogy department, said yesterday in an
Colonel Phillip Fleming of the Unit-
ed States Army was recently appoint-
ed new administrator, Professor Ful-
ler said, to replace Elmer Andrews
who labor thought had become too
conciliatory towards business. It is
expected, said Professor Fuller, that
Colonel Fleming will become a trouble
shooter for labor and "crack down"
on the various industries that have
been violating the Act either in letter
or spirit. Professor. Puller, in discus-
sing the laxity that has so far pre-'
vailed in the law's enforcement,
pointed out that if the Act is going
to have teeth in it, the administrator
will have to set minimum wages above
the blanket level of 30 cents an hour
in as many industries engaged in in-
terstate commerce as can afford to
pay it. To date, this has only been
accomplished in the hosiery and tex-
tile industries, which have estab-
lished a 32/2-cent an hour level.
In this connection, Professor Ful-
ler deplored the inadequate staff and
appropriations that have been allot-
ted to the administration of such an
important law. At present there are
only 451 members on the staff in
Washington and 250 working in the
field. Yet it is estimated that the
Board receives 250 complaints a week
and there are 12,000 alleged viola-
tions still awaiting investigation. Be-
fore .he resigned, Andrews stated that
