FWA Chief Holds Peace
Hinges On U. S. Jobs
Kansas City (ILNS). Hope of
maintaining world peace depends
largely on continuing full employment
in the United States, Maj. Gen. Philip
B. Fleming, administrator of the Fed­
eral Works Agency, told the Kansas
City Chamber of Commerce.
Discussing his recent trip to Europe,
Gen. Fleming said he could not help
but notice that “much of Europe is
living in fear of a severe postwar de
pression.”
“The bitter taste of the lean years
of the ’30s still lingers and, rightly
or wrongly, Europeans generally are
convinced it was the collapse of Ameri
can industry in 1929 which dragged
them into the depths of depression,”
Fleming added.
“Accordingly, I believe that much
of current European political maneu
vering can best be understood in the
an attempt to isolate herself

Labor Witch Hunt
ARBITRATE LONGSHORE UONTRACT. Louis Waldman, attorney for
International Longshoremen’s Association (AFL), listens as ILA President
Joseph Ryan makes a point during contract arbitration proceedings in New
York. William H. Davis is arbitrator in dispute which led to spontaneous 18
day strike.—(Federated Pictures).
Washington—(FP). Violating an
agreement to withhold labor legisla
tion until the labor-management con
ference has ended, reactionaries on the
House rules committee—champing at
the bit to smash labor—Nov. 21 greas
ed the way for two bills described by
labor organizations as the most vic
ious ever introduced in Congress.
The committe granted rules to the
Hobbs bill (HR 32) and the Smith
May bill (HR 31)37) as union auto
workers hit the pavement coast to
coast in the General Motors strike. Its
action assured early consideration of
the measures while congressional labor
baiters are at white heat over the
auto workers’ attempt to maintain
their wages in a struggle with GM.
The Smith-May bill, amending the
Smith-Connally act, would forbid
unions to solicit funds, pass assess
ments, accept contributions or spend
any money in connection with any po
litical convention, primary or election
would illegalize strikes and make
unions subject to damage suits if a
strike or other “concerted failure or
refusal to work” occurs under a con
tract containing a no-strike clause.
The Hobbs bill provides up to 20
years imprisonment and $10,000 fine
for a variety of offenses including
conspiracies or attempts to threaten
violence and defines dues collections
in certain circumstances, even with
the member’s consent, as racketeer
ing, with the same penalties.
Rep. Hugh DeLacy (D, Wash.) has
warned that the bill could be used to
outlaw the collection of union dues.
Free Speech Alibi
Of Boss Rejected
When an employer stages a fierce
campaign to defeat a union in an
election, that isn’t an exercise of the
“right of free speech” guaranteed un
der the Constitution.
So a National Labor Relations Board
trial examiner held this week when
he found the Clark Brothers Com
pany, Inc., of Olean, N. Y., guilty of
trying to smash a bona fide union
at its plant in violation of the Wag
ner Act.
The examiner, Arthur Leff, found
that the management, on the eve of
an election among the workers to
choose a bargaining agency, conducted
a vicious and successful drive to
intimidate the workers into selecting
a “company union” rather than a
local of the Automobile Workers’
Union.
The management published special
newspapers attacking the regular un
ion and all organized labor sent
leaflets along the same line to em
ployes’ homes ran big scare adver
tisements against the union in the
city’s daily paper, and called together
the employes on company time to
listen to speeches denouncing “out
side” unions.

Get Troops Out
Of China, House
Group Urges
Washington—(FP).—Immediate re
call of all American troops, transports
and supplies from China, where it
was charged American Ambassador
Patrick J. Hurley had “committed us
to armed intervention,” was demand
ed in House resolutions introduced
Nov. 26 by Rep. Hugh De Lacy (D,
Wash.) and five other west coast
Democratic representatives.
In a blistering speech on the House
floor, DeLacy, a member of Inti. Assn,
of Machinists (AFL) from Seattle,
warned that U. S. armed intervention
in China was “creating the basis for
another great war this time
against the Soviet Union, launched
from great bases in the Pacific, from
a Japan whose militarists we have
not yet rooted out, from anti-Commu
nist bases in North China.”
DeLacy acuaed Hurley and Lt. Gen.
Albert C. Wedemeyer of “step by
step” reversing the late Pres. Roose
velt’s policy of guaranteeing the right
of each nation to choose its own form
of government.
“Why,” he demanded “do we make
a large-scale civil war possible in
China by providing equipment and
transporting Chiang Kai-shek’s troops
into an area where he has so little
support among the people that he
must keep the Japs and their puppet
troops armed as part of his war
against his own northern country
men
The congressman said the State
Dept’s explanation that American
troops were needed in China to in
sure the surrender of Japanese armies
“blew up when press dispatches be
gan to reveal, first, that in areas
where the Communist-led troops were
strong the Japs and thfe puppet Chi
nese troops were being quickly dis
armed, and second, that in some areas
where the marines and central gov
ernment troops took over, the Japan
ese and puppet troops were permitted
to keep their arms And ordered to
stand guard over strategic railroads.”
Discounting the menace of commu
nism in China, DeLacy said: “The Chi
nese Communists stand for a simple
program, which has long ago been
achieved in western nationsr—a pro
gram of simple land and tax reforms
and of free elections.” 4
Furniture Chain Organized
85% As 2 Plants Vote Union
Cleveland—(FP).—The campaign of
the Upholsterers Inti. Union (AFL)
to establish industrial democracy
throughout the nationwide Kroehler
Mfg. Co., chain has advanced another
step with election of the union as
bargaining agency for Cleveland em
ployes by a 121 to 23 NLRB vote.
At the same time it was announced
by Pres. Sal B. Hoffmann that a pre
viously unaffiliated union in the
Kroehler plant in Binghamton, N. Y.,
already certified as bargaining agen
cy, has been issued a charter by the
UIU.
So RATIONING IS OVER—Meat rationing is over, this New York
butcher points out as he hold his knife ready over his meat-loaded chopping
block What’s needed now is for management to grant labor s wage demands
so workers can afford to buy his stock*—(Federated Pictures).

play at the women’s big show.
Next year on October 29 through
November 2, the Union Isabel Trades
Department will sponsor its Second
A. F. of L. Union Label and Industrial
Exhibition at St. Loui.«, Missouri. It
will be similar but larger than the
exhibition held in Cincinnati in 1938
where, in 233 booths, unionized manu
facturers and merchandisers displayed
their Union Label products. In addition
to the educational value of these ex
hibitions, outstanding entertainment
is furnished by stars of radio and
screen.
Among its varied activities the
Union Ijibel Trades Department is
giving a great deal of attention to
smaller manufacturers and industries.
It is cooperating with smaller and
medium-sized businesses that have col
lective bargaining agreements with
A. F. of.L. unions to maintain these
important institutions in our American
economy. A majority of members of
A. F. of L. unions are employed by
averdge-sized business establishments.
When they display the Union Label
on their products, the Union Isabel
Trades directs union-earned money
into these channels of smaller indus
tries which form a certain degree of
competition to the monopoly threat of
a few giant corporations.
In this connection, the Union Label
Trades Department’s policy is to urge
the greatest protection for American
business in the American market in
addition to urging all members of lab
or unions, union label leagues, wo
men’s auxiliaries and their families
to demand union label goods and union
services.
In releasing the annual report, Mr.
Omburn said, “during the next few
years, a supreme effort must be made
unions and their families as well as
consumers generally to become union
label-conscious. Promotion, publicity,
and education are the top-level activi
ties of dur department. We believe
that the union label idea forms the
best peacetime recovery plan that
has yet been submitted to maintain
American labor union standards.”
5-1 Strike Vote
By Steelworkers
Pittsburgh—(FP).—Turning out to
NLRB polls in the largest mass strike
vete in the history of this nation,
steelworkers throughout the country
voted nearly 5 to 1 to strike unless
the industry meets the demands of
United Steelworkers for a $2 daily
wage increase.
Incomplete returns Nov. 29 show
ed 281,047 to 59,042 in favor of a
nationwide walkout and indicated that
about 70% of 700,000 eligible workers
took part in the polling.
Voting was orderly and unmarked
by demonstrations. Workers in about
2,000 steel plants in virtually every
part of the U. S. went to the polls
quietly, giving little sign in their out
ward behavior that their behavior
might lead to ,a showdown fight be
tween the union and almost the entire
steel industry. Every steel firm in the
nation was involved in the vote with’
the single exception of the Weirtod
Steel Corp.
The strike mandate strengthened
the bargaining hand of union officials
who reportedly expect renewed at*
tempts as negotiation with the indus
try before calling the strike some
time after Christmas.
Votes from the major steel centers
showed whopping majorities in favor
of a strike. In the Pittsburgh area,,
largest steel producing center, a strike
was backed by 79,718 to 21,059. The
Baldwin Locomotive Works in Burn
ham, Pa., returned a vote of 1,432 to
355 in favor of a walkout. Workers
at Bethlehem Steel Corp., Natl. Tube
Co., Natl. Supply Co., and Pittsburgh
Foundry Corp., indorsed a strike.

Restore Civilian Jobs In
U. S. Service To Civilians,
Government Workekrs Urge
Files Wagner Act
Suit Against Co.
■y Washington, D. C.—(ILNS).—The time has come to restore
civilian jobs in the government service to civilian employes, by re
leasing uniformed men and women on civilian work, or at least
transferring them to military jobs, President James B. Burns of
the American Federation of Government Employes declared.
“At a time when job opportunities in government service are
drying up so rapidly and when men and women in uniform are so
eager to get back to civilian life, there appears to be no further
justification for retaining uniformed personnel on civilian jobs,”
President Burns said.
“Military personnel on duty in civil
ian jobs,” he continued, “should be
discharged from the service, if they
qualify on points, or trahsferred to
other duties of purely military nature.
Essentially civilian jobs in the War
and Navy Departments should be re
stored to civilian occupancy at the ear
liest date possible.
‘The Civil Service Commission re
ports that the number of government
employes was reduced by 238,185 in
September. This means, of course,
the abolition of many positions, and
the thrusting of many thousands of
skilled and experienced employes into
the ranks of the unemployed.
“These displaced civilian Workers
want work.
“Many of the military personnel
still on duty in the War and Navy
Departments want to get out of uni
form and back to civil life.
“Open the -Civilian Jobs”
“There is no conflict in these de
sires. Naturally, some of the mili

Philadelphia—(FP) SKF Indus
tries Inc., was accused of unfair labor
practices in a suit filed with the NLRB
by United Steelworkers as a mass
picket line went into its seventh week
at the strikebound plant.
Charging the company with a lock
out of its 3,000 employes, Richard
Davidson, regional director of the
union, said SKF was violating the
Wagner act by refusing to bargain
with the local on wage rates. The
union’s suit lays “the groundwork for
claims against the company by its em
ployes which may well exceed the $2
million for which the company is
suing,” Davidson said.
He referred to an earlier suit
brought by the company, which is
seeking damages from the union and
its officers because mass picketing
has prevented supervisory and office
personnel from entering the plant.
were formerly in civil service, would
like to continue on the jobs they have,
but as civilians. Most of them, how
ever are away from their home
towns, and want to get back, into the
normal peace-time occupations they
left during the war.
“The American Federation of Gov
ernment Employes urges the govern
ment to do the right thing by both
these groups. Let the military per
sonnel out of uniform or at least
into military jobs. Open the civilian
jobs they are now holding to civilians
who need them.”
