Expelled IAM Local
Joins Steelworkers
San Francisco (FP) Seceding
members of Lodge 68, Inti. Assn, of
Machinists have accepted an invita
tion to join the United Steelworkers.
They will be known as Local 168,
The IAM had filed a petition for an
injunction to prevent business agents
Harry Hook and Edward Dillon from
using the name Lodge 68 for their
expelled organization of 8C0 machin
ists. Expulsion of the local followed
its refusal to end a strike against bay
area machine shops in which it coop
erated with the steelworkers union.
Affiliation of the machinists with
the steelworkers means that there will
now be CIO machinists on both sides
of the bay, IAM Local 304 in Oakland
having become USA Local 1304 sev
eral years ago. Both the 1AM and
steelworkers are claiming jurisdiction
over uptown shops and shipyards.

Washington (FP)—House and Sen
ate conferees June 21 accepted the
Taft amendment to the price control
act, guaranteeing higher prices to
manufacturers. A committee spokes
man indicated this would probably re
place the House Wolcott amendment
setting a cost-plus-profit formula for
whatever ceiling prices remain after
the present law expires June 30.
The proposal of Sen. Robert Taft
(R., O.) would base prices on those
of Oct. 1-15, 1941, with an amount
to be added equal to the increase in
production cost since that time.
This amendment was termed “a de
layed action bomb” June- 20 by Eco
nomic Stabilizer Chester Bowles. “It
would not make itself felt immedi
ately,” he said. “But if it became part
of the law the OPA would have to
begin the back-breaking job of need
lessly revising prices on thousands
upon thousands of products.
“Soon after that the Taft amend
ment will begin to explode in an un
ending stream of higher prices all
across the board. These increases
would dash our hopes for a period of
price stability, industrial peace and
full production.”

But Rep. Rankin quickly brought
the committee to its senses.
Rationing would be regimentation

(EDITOR’S NOTE: Federated
Press reports the following conver
sation, which took place at a Save
OPA luncheon of the New Council
of American Business June 20, as
an indication of how the fight for
price control extends into all sec
tions of American life. For business
reasons the men prefer to remain
New York (FP)—They might have
been any four businessmen meeting
for lunch at a good club or hotel in
Chicago’s loop, Detroit, Pittsburgh or
downtown Toledo. One was young, an
ex-GI, one was in his late thirties
with a golfer’s tan, the others were
comfortably middle-aged. As the Es
sex House waiter cleared away the
chicken and brought on dessert and
coffee, their talk turned to shop and
to Washington.
“About the OPA bill,” said the
young one, who had come down from
Boston on business. He had a photo
graphic supply store, six people work
ing for him. There was a gold dis
charge button in his lapel that re
called all the others who have started
businesses of their own on GI loans.
“If the bill goes through and prices
go up, naturally everything we have
on our shelves is worth more,” he
said. “I have a $10,000 inventory, the
minute Truman signs that bill it’s
worth an extra $3,000. But it doesn’t
mean anything. When we have to re
place, we’ll have to buy at higher
prices. Anything we make now will be
nothing compared to what we’ll pay
out then. Then supposing our inven
tory is $20,COO and prices go down
in that ‘leveling off’ the NAM talks
about—our stock will be worth that
much less. That $3,000 I’ll gain now
is going to be more than eaten up by
the drop later, to say nothing of the
increased cost of living. I’m much
bett-r off with OPA.”
The man with the tan is in the
lighting equipment business and em
ploys 150 workers. “If he' signs that

War Fund.
“The Labor League for Human
Rights will support the appeals of
the USO and the foreign relief agen
cies embraced in the National War
Fund, even if they are not included in
this fall’s community chests drives.
We feel, however, that the chest cam
paigns should include these worthy
causes,” Woll declared.
Woll also pointed out that the Na
tional War Fund’s decision will not
be affected by current deliberations
of the national community chest com
mittee, since the National War Fund
has already made its commitments
for the balance of 1946, while the
chest committee’s recommendations
deal with the program of labor co
operation after the end of the year.

Journalist Lauds
U. S. Labor Press
Detroit (FP)—Ilya Ehrenburg, ace
Soviet journalist and war correspond
ent, took occasion during a needling
press conference Detroit, to com
pliment the American labor press. He
joined with his journalist colleagues,
Konstantin Simonov and Gen. Mikhail
Glaktionov, in spotting an organized
unfriendly attitude toward the Soviet
Union in the commercial dailies.
“I read English slowly,” he said,
“and do not want to pose as an ex
pert but I have examined American
labor papers and of course I see the
regular daily press. I find that the
labor papers are technically not as
well put together as the other papers
but they are more serious. The ordi
nary dailies are often frivolous in
their treatment and selection of front
page stories, as for instance, that a
young actress is on her way to Holly
wood to become a mofher. If I were
treating the matter in a novel I might

It seems like yesterday
It seems like yesterday that Nancy was playing with
dolls. Now she’s pushing her own baby carriage. Yes,
there’ve been a lot of changes in the last twenty years—
most of them so gradual we hardly noticed them at all.
Nancy didn’t grow up all at once. A tooth at a time—
a curl at a time—an inch at a time—and suddenly a little
kid sister was Mrs. Joe Jones, mother of Joe, Junior.
Like Nancy, the use of electricity has grown a lot in
the last twenty years. But the price of electricity has
been going down steadily. You may not have noticed it
because your bill probably stays about die same but
how many appliances have you added to your hpmo
since 1926? Actually, you’re getting twice as much
electricity for your money now as you did then.
Keeping electric service plentiful and cheap through
years of rising costs was not easy. That today’s elec
tricity is at its very lowest price in history is a tribute
to die hard work and experience of the men and women
in the industry, and to its sound business management.

tr' Up double. Right now
we’re dipping goods made six months^

of it’s due to labor, it’s because OPA,

don’t know what costs will be. A busi

The machine man sighed and said
it reminded him of Germany in 1939,
the way the monopolies got control
a the little n ri went under. “That’s’
hat’s happening now on this OPA
business. Those people in the NAM
know there’s going to be inflation.
They want it that way. The big one-4
know they can stnrd it but we’ll go
under. They’ll coc out on top with
more control.”
The exact measure of the prog

wealth and brute force in other
