Washington (LPA) The mil
lions of men, women and children
who move from state to state in
search of farm and food processing
jobs have a new and powerful de
fender in the halls of Congress, in
federal and state agencies. It is the
Nat’l Citizens CounciLon Migrant
Sponsors of the new organiza
tion, which came out of a two-day
special conference here, include
President H. L. Mitchell of the
Nat’l Farm Labor Union-AFL and
eGorge L-P. Weaver of the CIO
Committee to Abolish Discrimina
tion. Most of the participants in
the conference were from church
groups doing home missions work
among migrant workers, local civic
and women’s organizations that are
vitally concerned with migrants in
their states, and educators.
Need for speed in setting up a
working group was emphasized by
all of the speakers, who warned
that January 30, 1948 marks the
end of the federal farm labor
camps by decree of Congress which
cut off Agriculture Dep’t funds
for this purpose, thus forcing
thousands of workers on the high
ways or into private labor camps.
The new Council will work for
sale or lease of the 122 migrant
camps involved to public agencies
and non-profit organizations of far
mers, in order to protect the work
ers who have found these camps
the first place where their children
can receive health, education and
community services, and where they
live under secure and healthful

In addition, a drive w’ill be laun
ched to insure that control of re
cruitment and placement of farm
labor remains in the hands of the
U. S. Employment Service. The
“big farmers” of the country, rep
resented thru the American Farm
Bureau Federation, are expected to
try to block funds to USES, and
also to drive for the continued im
portation of foreign farm labor
from Mexico and the Carribean
area, in order to undercut any con
nection between hiring for indus
try and for farms.
In view of the temper of Con
gress, the Council decided to con
centrate on state and local pro
grams to expand health services,
day-care centers for children, and
adequate schooling.
Regulation of labor contractors
who hire and transport groups of
workers from one job to another
will be proposed. Dr. Paul Taylor
of the University of California, an
authority on migrant labor, point
ed out that one of the greatest haz
ards to workers' families is the
crowding of dozens of men, women
and children into open trucks,
transporting them for thousands of
miles without food or rest stops,
from job to job.
Migrant workers have never re
ceived the benefits of legislation
that other workers take for grant
ed, Taylor emphasized. He listed,
for instance, the Fair Labor Stan
dards Act (which exempts agri
cultural workers), public housing
legislation, workmen’s compensa
tion laws, listing of job opportun
ities by the federal and state em
ployment services, social security
benefits, compulsory school atten
dance requirements.
The new Council’s formation was
delayed for one day When spokes
men for left-wing organizations,
including Donald Henderson of the
Food, Tobacco & Agricultural
Workers-CIO and members of the
Unitarian Service Committee, in
sisted on “broadening” of the spon
sors to include them. Mitchell, of
the A FL farm labor union, told the
meeting that “I will never sit on

Donald Richberg
Also Anti-FEPC
Washington (LPA) Donald
Richberg, well-known lawyer who
claims credit for breaking the 1946
railroad strike, is now on record
defending Americana’ constitution
al right to discriminate in employ
ment because of difference in relig
ious beliefs.
“Lighting fires of religious con
flict” thru attacks on permanent
FEPC legislation was attacked by
Co-Cchairman Allan Knigbt Chal
mers and A. Philip Randolph in an
answer to Richberg last week.
Richberg’s assertion “will have
the effect of strengthening the sup
port which all major religious
groups have given fair employment
legislation and the ves-Chavez bill
in particular,” the permanent FE
PC advocates predicted.
“One of Mr. Richberg’s law clerks
could have told him that the bill
does not attempt to legislate
against religious beliefs nor against
prejudice, which is an emotion in
the minds of men. It simply pro
vides safeguards Against the ex
pression of prejudice in acts of
discrimination which would deny or
limit employment on account of
race, religion, color, national ori
gin or ancestry. It cannot be com
pared with prohibition, but it can
be compared with the laws against
driving while drunk.”

Jim Crow Rent
Boost Refected
Washington (LPA) Housing
Expediter Frank Creedon, target
of attack by organized labor for
his ruling that he has no discre
tion to disapprove rent ceiling
boosts and rent decontrol recom
mended by local boards, this week
turned down a proposal that rents
of Negro tenants in St. Petersburg,
Fla., be boosted about 50%.
Creedqn turned down the Jim
Crow rent boost on the grounds
that the present rent control law
does not permit “an increase de
pendent upon the race and color
of the tenant.”
The dwellings of Negro families
covered by the local board’s recom
mendations rent for about $2 a
week for a three-room unit. The
rent boost would have raised rents
25c a room per week when the
landlord does not furnish water,
and 35c a room per Week when
water is furnished.
Also rejected as “not being sub
stantiated” by the local rent advis
ory boards were proposals for de
control of McPherson County, Kan
sas, and a 15% increase in Dick
inson and Salina Counties, Kansas.
Creedon approved the first .de
control of a whole rental area—
Ottawa County, Kansas—covering
795 family dwelling units, on the
grounds that “the demand for con
tinuing maximum rental housing
accommodations has been reason
ably met.” The local board held
public hearings, and reports that
“in no case will there be a general
raise in rent level due to decon
trol.” Creedon noted in his ruling.

Randolph asserted that “Any no
strike clause is an insult to the
ITU.” He said that the ITU has 854
locals, of which 607 have 50 mem
bers or less. “The destruction of
each,” he said, “could be accom
plished by injecting non-union fore
men in a small local. The hiring of
one or two non-union key men and
the kind of pressure in a way which
could not be proved or detected
would result in a dissolution of that
small local.”
The hearings, first of their kind
under the Taft-Hartley law, may
be the basis for one of the first
court tests of the Taft-Hartley
law’s constitutionality.
'Eat Less' Taft
Fattens Himself
For White House
Washington (LPA)—Sen. Rob
ert “Eat Less” Taft (R., Ohio)
became a presidental candidate last
week and his “formal” announce
ment surprised no-one in the coun
try any more than it did Taft him
self. .. ,,
What was*’ of greater interest to
organized labor was that Taft, in
a speech in Dayton, Ohio, repeat
ed his argument that the Taft
Hartley law was “the mandate of
the people” and that it meant the
“emancipation of labor.”
In Cincinnati, Taft made it clear
that he favored the GOP’s “aid
the greedy rob-the-needy” tax pro
gram “even if it has to override
the President’^ veto/’ The blU was
vetoed twice.
Since he returned from nis
“pulse-taking” tour of the west,
Taft has said nothing about social
legislation, about his own housing
bill, about broadened social securi
ty benefits, increase in minimum
wakes, or such issues as FEPC,
anti-poll tax and anti-lynching.
