Wydler Calls Conference On Wetlands Ginsberg Labor Bill Seeks
Congressman John W. Wydler To Protect Employees
announced that he is calling a conference
in Washington, D. C. to
draft, and agree upon, proper
legislation to protect Long Island's
Wydler stated that he is going
to have representatives of the
Conservation Department of the
State of New York, the Conservation
Department of the Town of
Hempstead, Congressmen John
Dingell and Herbert Tenzer, meet
with him in die Nation's Capital
early in the next session of Congress
to work out, and agree upon,
a bill to protect Long Island's
" Such a conference will be very
helpful," Wydler said, " in seeing
that proper legislation is drafted
which is agreeable to all the parties."
" If this legislation is a-greed
upon in conference, I will
not only support it but be glad to
see mat it is given support by
many other Members of the House
of Representatives. Such a procedure
will avoid the misunderstandings
that arose over the sudden
change in the language of the
Wetlands Bill shelved by Congress
at this session. By having
all the interested parties present
at one time, I think a meeting of
the minds can easily be- obtained."
Wydler stated he would invite
Presiding Supervisor Ralph Caso
of the Town of Hempstead to attend
and hoped that Supervisor
Caso would be able to come. In
addition, he would invite Mr. R.
Stewart Kilborne, the Conservation
Commissioner of the State
of New York.
Wydler revealed that Con- _
gressman Dingell has just
submitted a proposed new Section
to the bill, and asked Wydler to get
New York State's cooperation in
reviewing the proposal.
" I have assured Congressman
Dingell that I will work closely
vith him in trying to obtain the cooperation
of the Town of Hempstead
and the State of New York.
It is clear that this can best
be done in Washington with all
parties present, and I will use
my good offices to bring this
about," Wydler concluded.

Assemblyman Martin Ginsberg
has pre- filed two bills concerning
labor which were requested
by the Long Island Federation
of Labor, following legislative
conferences that he held
with federation officials.
The first Ginsberg bill would
amend the State Labor Law and
would prohibit work by employees
of factories or retail stores on
legal holidays. In addition, an
employee would not have to make
up time lost because of a legal
holiday. The proposal would mandate
the State Industrial Commissioner
to investigate all complaints
alleging violations and to
take action as necessary where a
His amendment, he noted, will
guarantee all employees in all
industries and retail stores the
enjoyment of the holidays without
being compelled to perform
work or services. The only exception
would such work as is
now permitted by law on Sunday.
The second Ginsberg Bill would
amend the labor law and would
prohibit lie detector test as a
condition of employment or continuing
employment. A violation
would be punishable by a fine
of not more than $ 500 or by imprisonment
for not more than 30
days or by both fine and imprisonment.

Service during the Christmas
Alfred L. Green, Executive Director
of the New York State
Labor Department's Division of
Employment, pointed out that although
the employment prospects
of college graduates continue to
be good, the best kind of placement
requires that both Employment

as possible to search for and to
consider job opportunities.
College seniors are especially
invited to visit the Professional
Offices of the New York State
Employment Service. Such offices
are located in New York

Syracuse, Buffalo and Albany.

to provide similar services and
to take employment applications.
