Re: Guffey Coal Control Bill
To Members:

It now looks reasonably certain that the White House will exert enough pressure on the Ways and Means Committee to bring out of that Committee next week the Guffey Bill. It will probably come before the House some time next week and then be passed on to the Senate for action.

Our information is that the supporters of the Bill are writing and wiring Congressmen and Senators to vote for the Bill. There have been some changes from the original but a majority of operators feel that it is still wrong in principle and will wreck the industry in the South.

To those who are opposed to it, it cannot be too strongly urged that you immedi ately write or wire your Congressmen and Senators to oppose it when presented for action.

Ky. Senators: M. M. Logan, Alben W. Barkley. Ky. Congressmen: Glover
H. Čary, Vergil Chapman, Brent Spence, Fred W. Vinson, A. J. May, J. M.
Robsion, Emmett O'Neal, W. V. Gregory.
Please, at once, write or wire these gentlemen your attitude toward the bill

. Support for the bill must be met with opposition and at once, so do it today.

GEO. S. WARD Secretary.

HARLAN COUNTY COAL OPERATORS ASSOCIATION

HARLAN, KENTUCKY Feby 21 1936

6749 To Members:

In connection with Governor Chandler's plan to reorganize the State Government, his Reorganization Committee has prepared a Bill to be presented to the General Assembly of Kentucky, which has been called into extraordinary session for Monday, Feby 24th 1936. The act as drawn, covers a great many subjects for the consideration of the Legislators.

The Coal Industry is vitally interested in part of the new proposed program and particularly with reference to the new Department of Industrial Relations: section. I am enclosing you herewith copy of Article 15 of the Act covering the subject “Department of Industrial Relations" You will note that it is proposed to set up a Department of Industrial Relations and this Department will have exclusive functions over the Department of Mines and Minerals and the Compensation Board, as well as over other departments. These departments will be under the supervision of a Commissioner to be appointed by the Governor, who, it appears, will be given wide powers.

I want to call your particular attention to the last two paragraphs on page two, which provides that the employees at any plant can, by a majority vote, elect, their own physician and surgeon.

This is an Administration measure but it is hoped that amendments can be attached before it is finally adopted by the General Assembly.

Please read this article carefully and give me any comments you may care to make, but remember that this bill will be submitted to the General Assembly Monday, Feby 24th.

GEO. S. WARD, Secretary.
