Emphasizing that more than a year
after the war ended in Europe, “there
is still no world peace,” and “not a

the council says:

“the order of the day,” has caused
an acute deterioration in the world
situation, the council declares. It as
serts that Big Four occupation policy
of dividing conquered Germany and
Austria into zones “is a mistake,”
which International Labor News Serv
ice and associated newspapers have
been pointing out for months.
To overcome “the distressing inter
national situation and to promote a
feeling of trust, friendship and coop

the bonds of world security, and pro
moting human freedom and welfare.
The four other measures proposed,
making a well rounded program, are:
We urge that democratic nations
governing liberated countries seek out
former union leaders, put upon them
the responsibility and opportunity of
reviving free trade unionism and sup

uprooted persons in a humane and fair
manner and according them every op

Washington (FP)—Two-thirds of
the first 109,000 temporary emergency
dwelling units for veterans under the
emergency housing program were
completed or unc|e£ construction by

Construction was about to start on
30,000 units, with 13,500 completed

to convert war surplus housing. About
half of the units have been allocated
to educational institutions and half to
local communities for veteran use.
Under the conversion program Wil

New York (FP)—A charge that the
American Legion is seeking to squelch
and if possible eliminate labor posts
from its ranks was made here at a
press conference called by officers of
the Natl. Conference of Union Labor
Maurice Frank, judge advocate of
the labor legionnaires, made public
a heretofore suppressed report of a
secret star-chamber session of legion
officials weighing action against the
“The legion,” said NCULL Vice
Pres. Henry Geisz, “is trying to find
ways and means of doing away with
both labor posts themselves or the
individuals in them. They fear de
mocracy since the present top leader
ship remains in power only by sup
pressing rank-and-file sentiment.”
The NCULL is called an unauthor
ized and illegal group jn rthe sup
pressed report, jvhich tlie labor group
obtained through independent means
after being denied a copy by legion
officials. The report cites the opposi
tion of the union veterans to legion
policy on these issues: indorsement of
Henry A. Wallace for secretary of
commerce, support of the 65c mini
mum wage bill and opposition to mili
tary conscription.
“We are making the report public,”
Charles A. Vencill, conference presi
dent, said, “because we take excep
tion to the arbitrary exercise of gag
rule by high-ranking legion officials.”
Vencill expressed his belief in the le
gion as an organization for the public
good, adding: “We want only an ex
tension of the bill of rights and free
dom of speech into legion affairs.”

vision, stipulated that in Mie event
the OPA decided before June 1 on
the amount of the price increase to
be allowed, the W/C-cent increase
would go into effect as of the date
of the OPA’s announcement.
The wage increase is in line with
the general trend throughout indus
try, recommended by governmental
agencies to meet the increase in the
cost of living and was agreed to fol
lowing five days of negotiations with
the manufacturers. The increase
amounts to $1.48 for an eight-hou
day and is the third increase the pot
ters have received since 1941.

The subcommittee was instructed to

Washington (FP)—Danger of
administration sellout to the, farm
bloc and big business interests loomed
here May 22 after the Senate banking
and currency committee approved in
principle changes in the price control
act which would hand OPA’s authority
to decontrol commodities over to Sec.
of Agriculture Clinton Anderson and
a non-OPA board.
The move came in a surprising 12
to 2 vote on an amendment offered by
Sen. John Bankhead (D., Ala.), cotton
bloc leader, which would give Ander
son the power Cto decontrol all agri
cultural commodities at his discretion
and to raise prjces on those commod
ities to encourage production.
At the same time the committee
referred the whole question of de
controls to a subcommittee of Sen.
Ernest W. MlFarlanfi (D., Ariz.),
Eugene D. Milflkin (IL. j£olo.) and J.
William Fulhlght ($. Ark.), of
whom only th^last can be Considered

looking ahead
The cloture vote was to come on a
petition circulated by Sen. William
Knowland (D., Calif.), requiring a
two-thirds affirmative vote to be ef
fective, which would limit each sena
tor to one hour’s debate on pending
labor legislation and any amendments.
Knowland said the petition was signed
by 27 senators, 11 more than the re
quired number.
The attempt to shut off the 2-week
debate on anti-labor restrictions came
at the tail-end of a 13-hour session
which wound up at 1:12 a. m. May 24.
It followed three rapid-fire votes at
midnight indicating Senate determina

Another substitute offered by Green
which would have given Sec. of Com
merce Henry Wallace power to regu
late any industry benefit funds set up
by trade associations, was tabled by a
43 to 84 vote.
The Senate then adopted by a 48-30
vote the amendment offered by Harry

been fought for almost two weeks by

Washington (FP)—House polltax

For legal and banking expenses,
which the Senate interstate commerce
committee points out are largely un
necessary, eight of the largest Wall
Street firms and four banks have al
ready collected $2,172,336 from seven
railroads which have been in receiver
ship. Bankers who represent the bank
rupt roads include the Guaranty Trust
Co. and Bankers Trust Co. (both Mor
gan banks), Chase Natl. Bank (Rock

MENT: Most railroad company offi
cials had no cut in take-home pay in
1945 and some had increases. Atchi

dent $61,150 in 1945 compared to $46,
875 in 1944. The increase

Railroad workers took home an aver
age of $49.93 a week in December
1945, a cut of 6% since V-J Day. Un
skilled workers got only $28.82. The
cut was mainly due to loss in over
time but their workweek still averages
more than 50 hours. The average rail
wage was 99c an hour in 1945 com
pared to $1.03 in all manufacturing,
although 10 years ago rail was a
high-wage industry compared to man
ufacturing generally.
HAZARDS: The number of train
men and enginemen killed in accidents
rose from 280 in 1939 to 589 in 1944.
Speedup of railroad workers has
reached such a height that if the rail
roads were to operate on prewar effi
ciency they would have to employ
510,CCO locomotive enginemen and
trainmen in place of the 325,000 they
now employ. That’s why rail unions
are demanding changes in work rules.

I’m not really one to complain. But something’s been eating
at me lately. It’s a book I’ve run across. Aladdin. Aladdin,
with his old lamp and that corny genie ia it.
Don’t think I’m jealous. No. Only I do think I deserve a
better break against that genie with the whiskers. Imagine,
writing books about him. And not even mentioning me!
I’m a modest fellow. But let’s face facts. That goon doesn’t
even belong in the same league with me. Why I could give
him cards and spades and still’come up with more miracles
per kilowatt hour than he could perform in a thousand and
one nights.
My trouble is that you folks take me for granted. When
I heat your electric iron, or chill your refrigerator, or pop
up your toast, or clean your rugs, you expect it of me. But
•let that dopey genie do ant/thing and right away somebody
writes a book!
Ah me! Also, woe and alas! But don’t think I’m going to

being at your service, day and night. But I just had to gef
