Washington, DC: Exhausted after wage-hour fight in senate, Senator Allen Ellender Democrat of Louisana and onetime Lieutenant of the late Huey Long, is snapped by news cameramen as he rests in his office after leading the victorious fight for the compromise in the wage-hour bill. The compromise is expected to make wage differentials possible for many southern industries. He has threatened a filibuster unless the south got what it wanted in the measure. 6/13/38
