TUCKER AND ICKES WANT
ISAACS TO SHOW DOWN
Martin Isaaps, attorney operating
a secret service bureau for the Kup-penheimer-Rosenwald
garment boss
es organized into the Wholesale
Clothiers' ass'n, got letters today
from Irwin Tucker, editor of the
Christian Socialist, and Harold
Ickes, attorney.
They challenge Isaacs to come
into court and prove he is not run
ning a blacklist. Isaacs on Dec. 16
wrote Tucker and Ickes:
"There has been presented to me
a pamphlet bearing your signature
relative to the garment workers'
strike, wherein you print a statement
as follows:
" 'Blacklist It has been shown
and not contradicted that a blacklist
is maintained by Martin Isaacs, at
torney for the contractors contrary
to the law so that when an employe
incurs the dislike of a foreman in one
shop it is impossible to secure em
ployment in any other.'
"This statement by apparently in
telligent men is a dastardly libel and
I shall ask you and your associates
who made it to issue a denial Other
wise I shall immediately institute
proceedings against you. You could
easly have known that the statement
was false when you uttered it. I shall
expect to hear from you."
Both Ickes and Tucker tell Isaacs
to come ahead and file his libel ac
tion. Tucker's letter: .
"Sir: We shall be grateful for the
opportunity of proving this charge in
court, so that the public may have
opportunity to pass judgment upon
the dastardly methods employed by
you. Testimony- taken before the
aldermanic committee in this strike
and before the Hanson committee in
the previous strike is amply suffi
cient to prove our contention. I am
glad to assume full responsibility for
the circular as chairman of the com
mittee. Kindly communicate with
my attorney, W. A- Cunnea. Con
gratulate you on your apparent de
termination to come out into the
open."
