"United Mine Workers Char
ter Still Hanging Fire As
Session Nears End
Miami.—Moving at a swift pace,
the AFL Executive Council dealt with
a number of important national and
international problems at its mid
winter session here. Outstanding ac
tions were:
1—Approval of a post-war housing
program which would provide nine
teen million jobs in construction,
building materials and household fur
nishings. The council called on Con
gress to adopt enabling legislation to
put into effect this program for build
ing 15 million new homes in the first
10 years after the war.
2—President William Green blast
ed the so-called World Labor Confer
ence in London for giving considera
tion to Soviet proposals for human
reparations after the war.
3—The council recommended a tax
program which provides incentives to
industry for increased production dur
ing peacetime.
4—A complete post-war program
was drafted by the council to further
the objectives of full production and
jobs for all. (This program is de
scribed in detail in other columns)—
meanwhile, the council devoted con
siderable attention to the proposal for
reaffiliation of the United Mine
Workers with the AFL. New develop
ments in this situation resulted from
an exchange of correspondence be
tween Mr. Green and John L. Lewis
regarding the extent of jurisdiction
claimed by the miners. However, no
final decision had been reached by
the council on the
charter to the UMW

In its action on the

recommendations of Vice President
Harry C. Bates, chairman of the AFL
Housing Committee and president of
the Bricklayers’ Union. The program
calls for a tremendous upsurge of

“It takes years, not months, to
make a competent workman for our
important operations,” he asserted.
“Even if some of them were from the
fighting lines, it seems to me they

cause if their presently wasted spe

promptly the sum of materials of
vital importance to the successful op

SOCIAL SECURITY LEGISLATION
Miami.—Urgent need for enactment of modemized*social security legis
lation to prevent post-war depression and suffering was stressed by the A FL
Executive Council in the following statement:
The peace to which all Americans look forward will prove a dangerous
disillusionment if it is followed by widespread unemployment, suffering and
depression.
America does not want peace with breadlines. Out people insist upon
peace with security.
The Executive Council recognizes the fact that the best economic security
for the worker is a good job at good pay, but it is impossible under our free
economy to guarantee jobs for all. And the American people feel that the
sacrifice of freedom is too high a price to pay for the kind of economic se
curity that is possible under a completely regimented economy.
Labor sees only one alternative—a broad social security program which
will protect our free enterprise system from its own shortcomings and which
will provide safe insurance for the individual against the evils resulting from
temporary unemployment, old age, illness and disability.
Therefore, the Executive Council urges Congress to take immediate and
favorable action on the Wagner-Murray-Dingell amendments to the Social
Security A^t.
This measure will offerasecurity against old age to 25 million Americans
not now covered by the Social Security Act. Both major parties have pledged
themselves to correct this unfair situation. This portion of the bill no longer
can be regarded as controversial. It should be enacted at once.
Secondly, the Wagner-Murray-Dingell bill proposes to modernize and im
prove the present faulty unemployment compensation system. The Executive
Council concedes that unemployment compensation is no cure for a depres
sion, but an effective system can prevent one from developing in the post-war
reconversion period when millions of workers will suffer from enforced idle
ness. America is an economic whole. It needs a uniform unemployment com
pensation system for the country, not 4$ miscellaneous types. Benefits and
their duration should be increased to a reasonable standard. That this can be
done without throwing federal and state treasuries into debt is proven by the
fact that vast reserves have accumulated during the war production boom
when unemployment was reduced to a minimum.
Perhaps the most controversial section of the Wagner-Murray-Dingell
bill deals with health and disability insurance. The harsh facts about shock
ing health conditions still existing in America which were exposed by a re
cent state investigation appear to have made no impression upon certain ele
ments in the medical profession which continues to oppose this measure. Their
outcries of “socialized medicine” are unfounded. Their fears as to the effect
on professional earnings are groundless. This bill would make the services of
competent physicians available to millions of citizens who can’t afford now to
consult a doctor or pay for hospital care. It would improve and extend the
nation's medical facilities. It would permit the patient to choose his own doc
tor. It would allow individual physicians to maintain private practice.
It would not place nearly as heavy a burden on government finances as
the present prevalence of curable illness does upon the national economy.
In fact, by applying the insurance principle to a field where it naturally
belongs, this bill will strengthen the America of the future, alleviate human
suffering and lift the medical profession to new heights of service and se
curity.
The Executive Council trusts that Congress will have the vision and the

And CIO Plot' At London
To Split Labor Movement
Hopes for Failure of Move
Green said the AFL hoped the “de
termination by those who divided
labor in the United States to accom
plish the same purpose and divide
labor throughout the world” would be
thwarted. He asserted Sir Walter
Citrine, British labor leader, and his
associates “will be forced to decide
whether they will remain affiliated
with the IFTU or become a part of
the newly formed international move
ment developed and created by their
friends of the CIO and their Russian
comrades.”
The representatives of the CIO who
loosely charge the AFL with being,
an isolationist organization, Green
continued, “have led at home in the

MOSCOW DOMINATION CONFERENCE AIM
Miami (ILNS).—Communists and the CIO are seeking to
divide free labor throughout the world, President William Green
of the American Federation of Labor charged in a statement which
vigorously condemned Russian proposols for using forced German
labor to repair war damage.
The “World Trade Union Conference,” which opened Feb. 6 in
London is “a Soviet conspiracy to split the democratic labor move
ment,” Green declared.
Proceedings of the conference to date, he added, “have vindi
cated the position taken by the ^American Federation of Labor
when it declined to respond to an in
vitation to participate.”
President Green criticized what he
called the purpose pursued by “the
so-called Soviet trade unions” at the
conference as designed to “promote
disunity in world labor and through
such disunity establish the domina
tion of Moscow over the. international
labor movement.” He also criticized
the British Trades Union Congress
and the CIO for taking part in such
a conference, which seeks to set up a
new world labor organization in place
of the International Federation of
Trade Unions.

be forced to repair war damage in
Russia. He said he wondered what
the CIO attitude would be to Soviet
