WashingtonD.C.^-(ILNS)L“A sttidy looking toward im
provement and expansion of the social security program,
which has been advocated for years by the American Fed
eration of Labor, will be made by a Citizens Advisory Coun
cil of 17 headed by Edward R. Stettinius, Jr., former Sec
retary of State, as chairman.
Membership of the committee Which includes labor
representatives, was announced by Senator Eugene D. Milli
kin, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, in accord
ance with a resolution which the Colorado Republican and
Senator Walter F. George, Demo-». —.........................——|

last session of Congress.
The resolution provided $25,COO
for a “full and complete investiga
tion” of social security, and the
various proposals for enlarging the
present vast program.

Early Action Asked
Senator Millikin asked Stettinius,
Rector of the University of Virgi
nia, to bring the council together
“at the earliest practical date” to
“survey the existing programs un
der the Social Security Act and lay
out definite plans for the study of
their operations and proposals fpr
their changes.”
Ever since the federal social se
curity program went into effect in
1936 there have been proposals be
fore Congress for expanding it,
particularly in regard to coverage.
A number of large groups of work
ers are not entitled to benefits
under the program. These include
farmers and agricultural workers,
domestic servants, state and fed
eral government employes, self
employed persons including small
merchants, and employes of char
itable institutions such as churches
and nonprofit hospitals.
Many Millions Still not Covered
Congressional experts estimate
that about 2 out of 5 persons earn
ing wages are not now covered by
the social security System. This

Washington— (LPA) Labor
lawyers predicted confidently here
last week that the five-man Natl
Labor Relations Board would over
rule its general counsel, Robert
Denham, who has placed the Board
in an embarrassing position by in
sisting that no affiliate of the AFL
or CIO may have any status before
the Board unless top AFL and CIO
officers sign the Taft-Hartley anti
Communist affidavits.
There was belief that the vote
might even go as high as fdbr to
one against Denham whose ruling
has been characterized by Con
gressmen as “silly” and “unconsti
tutional.” Denham’s arbitrary in
terpretation of the law, which Sen.
Robert Taft (R., Ohio) questioned,
threatened to leave the greatly ex
panded NLRB with practically no
business except that of a handful
of independent unions. Refusal of
the AFL executive council and the
CIO executive board to surrender
to Denham’s stubborn insistence on
his own reading of the law depriv
ed the Board of the freat bulk of
the work that would normally come
its way.
Expected to vote against Denham
were Chairman Paul Herzog and
Members John M. Houston, Abe
Murdock, and James Reynolds.
Probably voting to sustain Denham
will be J. Copeland Gray, acknowl
edged as the “industry member”
of the Board.
Fast action to overrule tfntftam
could take the Board out of the spot
in which his action put it, labor
lawyers pointed out. Both the AFL
and CIO conventions would have
time to shape a new policy in re
gard to the anti-labor law.
The test case on which the Board
was scheduled to act was brought
by the Int’l Brotherhood of Electri
cal Workers-AFL which has or
ganized employes of an Arlington,
Va., radio broadcasting station.
Last month an NLRB regional di
rector in Baltimore dismissed the
union’s petition for a representa
tion election. Although all top IB
EW officials filed the affidavits
the election petition was dismissed
because of the failure of the AFL
executive council to sign the state

who are accused of working close

Labor officials urged local union
ists to pay special attention to the
local rent control boarchi, to
that it isn’t “packed” with land
lords’ stooges, and to demand full
hearings on proposed decontrols or
rent boosts. Both Sen C. Douglass
Buck (R., Del.) who steered the
present rent control law thru con
gress, and Sen. John J. Sparkman
(D., Ala.), Democratic whip, last
week predicted that the law would
be extended beyond its present ex
piration date of Feb 29, 1948.
Rent increases have also beert
proposed by local boards for parts
of New Mexico and Kansas now

other boards—in Charleston, W.
Va., and Newcastle, Ind. have
urged that their home areas remain
under controls.

wired Creedon last week that

and any further such recommends
tion unless and until a board that
is representative of all the citi
zens, including tenants as well as
landlords, has been appointed and
has held public hearings on any
proposal for increasing rents.”
A demand that Creedon make
public all proposals for rent in-4
creases put forward by local boards
was made last week by President
Harvey W. Brown of the Int’l As
sociation of Maehinists-unaffiliat
ed. He also urged Creedon to hold
“full and fair hearings of tenant
and labor groups in the community
as well as business and real estate
representatives” before reaching a
decision on what is in the public:
