He . thought Johnson could hold a v big public mass-meeting, get the v workers in a better mood. They have been threatening a general strike. The automobile labor board, created by Roosevelt to keep labor peace in the industry, indus-try, has been getting nowhere fast. The workers distrust it. sis - ! TROCBLEMAN JOHNSON ' . .. So Johnson was to be the troubleman. He readily agreed to make the speech, began working on the text, when he got a phone call from Mayor Couzens. "The situation has become too dangerous, general," he advised. "We feel it best you do not come. I've 'called off the meeting." Johnson hit the ceiling, refused to accept Couzens' warning. The mayor's father and Johnson are none too friendly, and the recovery recov-ery administrator immediately suspected that the senator had something to do with withdrawing withdraw-ing the invitation. ,"rve got to have Roy Chapin's word that it is too dangerous," he told young Couzens. v Roy D.
