(FP) The 5-day strike of more than 1,000 Hialeah racetrack grooms and exercise boys ended here Jan. 22 with a partial victory as authorities agreed to cut kitchen prices of foods 25 per cent. The strikers walked out Jan. 17 in protest against a track an nouncment that it would discon tinue awards of $10 for leading horses to the post and $10 bonuses for winners. Although this issue was not settled as the boys and grooms went back, their lawyer, Alfred Kreisler, said they planned to affiliate with the International Brotherhood of Teamsters and then open negotiations on wage demands as an alternative to re storation of the bonus. Their decision to return was un doubtedly influenced by the posi tion of teamster President Daniel J. Tobin, in Miami for a meeting of the IBT executive council, who told Federated Press it was not customery for the union to take in individuals on strike but indicated they would be welcome after set tlement of the dispute. The exercise boys and grooms were bolstered in their strike by blacksmiths, who walked off and went fishing in protest against hiring inexperienced help. It was anticipated they would return to work with the end of the grooms’ strike. Firms May Deduct Portal Payments Washington (FP) Payments made to union members who sue for portal-to-portal wages may be deducted by employers from taxes for the years involved, the U. S. Treasury ruled Jan. 22. This Treasury ruling was ac companied by an opinion that workers who receive such retro active pay will be required to re port it for the year actually re ceived, rather than account for it as income in prior periods. Employers will withhold the cus tomary amounts as taxes on all such back wages, the Treasury held. Camden Potters (Continued From Page One) we have a little time to spend with our families. Most, if not all of our former service men have returned to work and quite a few ex-G.I.’s who were not former employees of the Cam den Pottery, have been given em ployment in the last few months. Raymond Jones, ex-G.I. has been granted a transfer card to Local Union 77, Mannington. Ray was our recording secretary for two terms and served on the local shop committee several times.—0. C. 50.

WITHOUT ASSIGNMENT Washington (FP)—Representa tive Vito Marcantonio who served in the 79th Congress as a member of the House commerce committee, was without any committee assign ment Jan. 10. Democratic spokes men said it was up to the GOP majority to take care of the as signment of minor party members. Te Republicans contend correctly that Marc won as the Democratic nominee as well as the American Labor Party’s choice. They say he’s a Democratic problem. HITS INTERFERENCE—Presi dent Daniel J. Tobin of the Inter national Brotherhood of Team sters, meeting in Miami with the union’s general executive board, rapped proposed government inter vention in jurisdictional disputes. “Labor claims the just right to set tle its own affairs said Tobin. /Federated Pictures) ^47 fS 1^1 PROTEST FOR SAFETY’S SAKE—Borrowing a page from labor’s book, these Los Angeles, Calif., children picket this railroad crossing after one of their playmates had been killed. They demand the restora tion of signal apparatus removed prior to the fatal accident. (Federated Pictu res). ______ AFL Chieftain Addresses Conference In Washington (Continued From Page One) with the same spirit and the same manner as do the representatives of the manufacturers and employ ees in the pottery industry.” Discussing pending anti-labor legislation now before congress, the AFL chief said: “I can not believe, in view of your experiences during a half century of cooperation in the de velopment and promotion of. col lective bargaining, that you are in accord with this movement which has been launched by those who have developed an unfavorable trade union psychology, those in favor of the enactment of anti labor legislation—highly objection able anti-labor legislation. That is the spirit in Congress today: “Make them do this” and “Make them do that”. I want to say if they make labor do this and make Labor do that by force and com pulsion, there is no reason why they can’t make employers do this and make employers do that also. I thfrik I voice your sentiments when I say that what we want is less compulsion—not more, ^¥hat we want is less of government in terference in business and in our private affairs. We want to be free men in a free country, exer cising that freedom guaranMfli to free men and women under the basic Constitutional laws of our nation. President Green expressed con fidence American workers “will ad just themselves in a most commen dable way to the change from the war emergency and reconversion period to the normal way of liv ing”, stating: “I am sure we learned many lessons during the war. Labor sub jected itself voluntarily to gov ernmental 'domination to a large extent. We behind the our right emergency. self to price control, to govern mental domination in many ways. And we found out that notwith standing our willingness to co operate and work with the Gov ernment that it was impossible for the Government to make a success of their price control policies, of their wage control policies, of their labor domination and of their in dustry domination policies. I think we all still believe in free enter prise. “If there is any group in Amer ica that stands as a defender of the free enterprise system it is the 8,000,600 members of the American Federation of Labor. Now we can’t have free enterprise and governmental domination and control at the same time. And Con gress ought to think about that! How are we going to maintain our free enterprise system if we are going to shackle groups by con trolling them and dominating them through the enactment of anti labor legislation. And the record shows that America is the remain ing nation, the one remaining na tion in the world where the free enterprise system prevails. The governments of other nations in laid the srike weapon door, we surrendered to strike during the Industry subjected it- the world have turned to the left and the free enterprise system has been destroyed. Even in Great Britain, that nation which we have always held up as a model, we find the people have turned to the left in favor of governmental own ership and governmental control. I remember in days gone by the tories of Great Britain were warn ed against any attempts they were making to exploit labor beyond the standpoint of reason and just ice. Are the tories in America going to follow the same policy? Shall they drive Labor in Amer ica to the left? Are they going to endanger this land, land, of that great private enterprise? RESOLUTIONS OF RESPECT Whereas, Almighty God in his infinite wisdom has seen fit to take from our midst our friend and fellow worker, Brother Willard Salyers, and •Whereas, the members of Local Union 116, Lincoln, Illinois, recognize the loss of this Brother who was respected by all his shopmates and fellow workers, therefore, be it Resolved, that we, the members of Local Union No. 116, shall cherish and respect the memory of his pleasant manner and as evidence of sympathy and esteem, it is hereby further Resolved, That we extend our profound sympathy to his family, a copy of this resolution be published in our official journal, the Potters Herald, a copy spread upon the minutes of Local No. H6 and a copy sent to the bereaved family,jalso that our charter "J thirty days. draped in mourning for a period of be our own free vital force of of the things “Those are some that those, who are inspired by feelings of hatred towards Labor, are now attempting to do, attempt ing to shackle Labor, to enslave Labor, to rob Labor of its rights, to make Labor subject to the control and domination of force and compulsion. Those who favor that should be thinking about the great vital principle in volved: the preservation of free enterprise in the last remaining nation in the world, where the free enterprise system still exists. ’‘It seemed appropriate and fit ting to me to make these remarks at the present time, ladies and gentlemen. “Now, last of all, the member ship of the American Federation of Labor has almost 8,00,000 paid up members. That is shown by the books in our office 8,000,000 strong! They are devoted, loyal Americans. We are proud of this splendid group here and they are typical of the membership of the American Federation of Labor. Those 8,000,000 members stand as a bulwark against the infiltration of foreign philosophies in our po litical and industrial life. America will be safe from the infiltration of these economic philosophies so long as those 8,000,000 members of the American Federation of Labor stand united and function together. It is a bulwark in de fense of free enterprise and against destructive foreign phil osophies. We believe in free enter prise and we are opposed to totali tarianism. They have no strikes in totalitarian countries. Do we want this country totalitarianism and no strikes, or do we want a free dem ocracy and free enterprise strikes? I would rather live free country than be a slave totalitarian nation. “I am proud to say to you the American Federation of Labor stands in opposition to Commun ism, in opposition to foreign phil osophies, in opposition to totali tarianism in any form. We stand as a defender of the rights of em ployers to invest their money and to operate their properties, free from governmental control, or free from interference from any source whatsoever. That is the right we enjoy under a free enterprise sys tem, and it is our purpose to stand immovable in defense of that right GLEN HALE HARRY THOMPSON JOSEPH E. SEMPLE ^Committee Local Union No. 116 and in a in a that Jersey Governor Would Ban Closed Shop And Strikes Trenton, N. J, (FP)—Governor Alfred E. Driscoll stepped into out going Governor Walter Edge’s shoes Jan. 21 and he found they fit. First on his legislative program was an all-out assault on labor’s right to strike and the closed shop. His message to the legislature fol lowed through on Edg^s notorious law enacted last year, outlawing strikes in New Jersey’s public utilities. It called for: 1. —“Effective means ... to prohibit any use of economic force by employers or employees.” 2. —An “open door” in any exist ing closed shops in the state. 3. —Outlawing of jurisdictional and “wildcat” strikes. 4.—Setting up of a labor tribunal under a state labor relations act to define unfair labor practices and provide mediation for collective bargaining. and preserve that right for future generations. Concluding his remarks in re gard to a general wage increase and adjustment of inequities under the present contract. Green said: “Now, I hope you will succeed in your deliberations here. I know that these representatives of Labor are going to be very modest in their demands—in fact I think the representatives of the manufac turers here will offer them more than they are asking, and in the last analysis you will have to ar gue with them to accept your of fer against their will. But at any rate I want you to work out a solution of your problems here in Washington, just as you have done at Atlantic City so many times, and in other sections of the coun try. I feel that you will, and I know you will do it without re sorting to a moment of stoppage of work in the pottery industry.” STAR PLAN Liberal Trade-ln-AI lowance, or Liberal Credit to Per sons Building or Re modeling.
