Washington (Aug. 7)
The boom for Meyer Bloomfield, authority on industrial problems and New York attorney, for secretary of labor, took a new turn here when it became known that he had had an interview with President Hoover. The position of secretary of labor is expected to become vacant this Fall when Secretary Davis resigns to devote himself to his campaign for United States Senator in Pennsylvania.
Mr. Bloomfield, who has been highly recommended for the post by Roger Babson, eminent statistician, is expected to have another conference with President Hoover shortly. Mr. Bloomfield, who is considered an authority on industrial disputes, has been connected with many developments in the field of organized labor. He has been head of the industrial service department of the Emergency Fleet Corporation. The late President Harding sent him to Russia on a confidential mission.
