Labor Reports
Cost of Living
Up 43 Per Cent
Industry Members
Of FDR's Committee
Say Figures Not Final
WASHINGTON, Jan. 29-(M)-}La-
bor members of a presidential com-
m~ittee studying the cost of living re-
ported today it has gone up 43.5 per
cent since January, 1941, and were
taken to task by industry members
who said the report had not been
"reviewed by competent and accepted
authorities."
"There has been no committee
finding on this point," said the in-
dustry members, H. B. Horton, treas-
urer of the Chicago Bridge and Iron
Company, and George K. Batt, vice-
president of Dugan Brothers, New-.
ark, N.J.
"It is the opinion of the industry
members of the President's commit-
tee," Horton and Batt added in a
statement, "that the committee is
under responsibility not to make a
final report to the President and to
the public until careful consideration
has been given to all the relevant
Chairman William H. Davis of the
committee also issued a statement
saying the report is "not in any sense
a report of the committees"
"It is a statement of the conten-
tions of the CIO and AFT, as to the
cost of living in the Bureau of Labor
Statistics index," he continued.
The labor members of the five-
'man committee, Pres. R. J. Thomas,
(UAW-CIO) and George Meany,
(sec.-treas., AFL) submitted the re-
port to Chairman William H. Davis
of the committee with the recom-
mendation that it be transmitted to
the President, and urged that wage
increases be authorized to cover their
contended increase in living costs.

Boys Receive Bonds for Averting

Wreck

Robert Mulnix (left), and Norman Burns, both nine, admire $50
War Bonds they were awarded at Los Angeles for averting a railroad
wreck. They discovered an open switch and spread the alarm in time
to stop a freight train from being derailed. No mention was made of
the fact they were playing "hookey" from school at the time.
PAYDAY MONDAY:

pay table in each company, ready
to sell bonds.
According to Lt. Melvin G. Flegal,
in charge of Army bond sales, the
drive has been going "exceptionally
well and has been picking up all the
time." Reports are not yet in from
all the companies, but figures avail-
able show that several companies are
making outstanding records.
Company A, which. up to Wednes-
day had sold no bonds, turned in
more than $4,000 Friday in cash and
payroll deductions. Of this amount,
$3,000 was sold in a rally Friday
night.
Company B, which had reported no
sales miiesday, had by Thursday turn-
ed almost $1,000.
"We are trying to work constantly
and not let sales slow up," Lt. Flegal
said. Competition has been initiated
between the companies and also with-
in the sections and platoons of each
company. At present the station
complement is on record as having
bought the greatest amount of bonds.
Company G is next and Company A
stands in third place.
A bond rally in each company is
planned for the coming week. Army
units stationed here topped $40,000
in the Third War Loan drive.
R. Gordon Griffith, chairman of
the University bond committee, made
the following statement:
"So far in the war bond drive, the
Army units on the campus are mak-
ing the rest of the University look
pretty bad. Orders from the Army
are running in excess of one-quarter
of those received. It is the Univer-
sity War Bond Committee's sincere
hope that since tomorrow, Jan. 31, is
payday, the University staff will have
an opportunity to show that the
Army does not have to do it all."
