Mitchell, president of the National Farm Labor Union, AFL, 1 announced receipt of a message re porting that the U. S. Department of Agriculture had withdrawn 130 Mexican nationals who, the union charged, had been forced by the 1 government agency to work as strikebreakers for the last 40 days. This action was taken by the De partment of Agriculture over the demands of the Associated Farmers of California, a vigilante organiza tion representing the large indus trialized farming interests in that state. Mitchell said that the de partment acted after strong pro tests had been made by officials of the American Federation of Labor to both the department and Secre tary of State Marshall. Liberal or ganizations and individuals thru out the country had also added their protest to those of Labor. Strike Front Solid The 1,500 employees of the Di Giorgio Farms Corporation have held their ranks solidly since Oct. 1, and maintained what is probably the longest picket line in the world. The Di Giorgio Farms cover 18 square miles. The Di Giorgio Cor poration has holdings throughout the United States and Central Am erica and is reputed to be the larg est fruit producing and processing corporation in the world. The workers who are on strike are permanent employees who work the year round on the Di Giorgio Farms. Nearly all are originally from the Oklahoma Dust Bowl, who went West in the 30’s. Contrary to the usual practices in agricultural strikes, there has been no violence against the strik ers. Local law enforcement officials have been cooperative as a wholA The county sheriff made the abandoned jail at Arvin available as strike headquarters. Organized labor in the city of Bakersfield has cooperated 100 per cent with the striking farm workers. The AFL Kern County labor Council is hand ling all finances raised to feed and pay rent for the families of the men and women on strike. The members of the Railway Brother hoods have refused to move trains through the track serving the cor poration farm. The local Teamsters Union is also involved in that 128 of the striked are truck drivers and helpers. Members of the Win ery Workers Union which has a contract of 4 years duration, have also refused to cross the picket lines. Aid For Strikers Needed The morale of the strikers re mains high. Aside from the Mexi can nationals who were forced by the government to act as strike breakers, only a few employees of the corporation farm are scabbing. These are mostly supervisory em ployees, their wives and relatives. Financial support for the strik ing farm workers has come from a number of AFL international unions, California State Federation of Labor, central labor bodies, and local unions throughout the state and nation, but more funds are needed. The families of men and women on strike need food and money with which to pay house rent. The children will have a dreary Christmas if the strike goes on.

C. (ILNS) Plans for an informational attack on Communism throughout the world and its influence on the la bor movement in nil nations were discussed at an important meeting of the American Federation of Labor Committee on International Labor Relations. The committee of which Matthew Woll is chairman decided to study practical steps necessary to estab lishing a “Deminform” (democratic information) bureau, to combat the propaganda activities of the re cently created Cominform (Com munist information) bureau to which Communist parties of 9 coun ties pledged adherence. It is ex pected the AFL will support the idea of setting up a “Deminform.” Labor executives present at the meeting included President William Green and Secretary treasurer George Meany of the AFL, David Dubinsky, president of the Inter national Ladies’ Garment Workers’ Union and Florence C. Thorne, AFL economist and research head. Railway Chiefs Attend ,■ H. W. Fraser, president the Order of Railway Conductors and D. B. Robertson, president of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen and Enginemen, wer special guests. Reports were made by Irving Brown, AFL European.representa tive James Killen, chief labor ad viser to Gen. Douglas MacArthur in Japan, and Serafino Romualdi, AFL Latin-American representa tive. A written report was also sent to the committee by Major Henry Rutz, AFL representative in -Ger many. the the the Of major importance was committee’s decision to carry AFL’s recent endorsement of Marshall plan a step further. AFL will now insist that labor spokesmen of labor’s own choice be named to all administrative agen cies in connection with the Mar shall plan, including high diplo matic posts in important countries. The Brown and Rutz were instructed to take up with the trade unions of the 16 countries cooperating in the Marshall plan and with Ger many the idea of a conference'on the plan. The committee decided also to submit to President Truman an economic program of reconstruct tion with the framework ot the Marshall plan. This program will formulate the relation of social and economic forces to the aid program. It will embody assurances of the rights of workers and the sover eignty of nations receiving aid.. “Slave Labor” Survey Asked The committee will call upon the State Department with a request that the American delegation at the United JJations support the AFL consultants who have propos ed that the Social and Economic Council and the International La bor Office survey the “slave labor” situation and present a program to overcome it. Full support was voted for the coming Lima conference, starting Jan. 10, to establish an inter-Am erican federation of labor.

FOR A CHANGE, SERVE BETSY ROSS SLICED VIENNA Enriched with Vitamin and Iron own mwmwwii n n n n n imti fr wmwmwwvt twmw a*ww a i a w o destruction. a RAY BIRCH SERVICE STATION PhoMltO “Established June, 1913** KERRY TREE When Drew Pearson wrote his little paragraph about the possibi lity of sending a friendship train across the country, to be loaded with food for Europe, he authored one of the best clicks in recent times. The train is on its way. It start ed from the west coast with a dozen freight cars loaded, and it is pick ing up cars all along the way. It wouldn’t be at all surprising if ths train should have in it more than the originally estimated hundred cars. And one hundred freight cars loaded with food is a lot of cars and a whale of a lot of food, al though, of course, just a little part of what is needed. This train is a grand idea for more reasons than one. First, it makes the nation know that food is being given direct, from person to person. Second, it makes the nation know that the cry from Europe for food is real and that our own food saving program makes sense. Too many persons have been sharp-shooting at that program. Sure, you can ask a lot of ques tions about it, such as, “why not go without meat on whatever day pleases the individual or family?” That’s a cute little way of getting around any meatless day at all. Most of the questions are like that. Always there are the sharp-shoot ers. During rationing we had them, too and mostly they were running to black markets, if they had the price. Of course, there is truth in the statement that our government hasn’t told us the reasons plainly enough, or often enough. But if we read at all we should know that the hunger is real, that it is on a tremendous scale and that it has political as well as humanitarian angles. I Food is a part of the United States foreign policy right now and it will be so for a long time to come. So, the family dinner table actually is in the diplomatic serv ice. That’s something new in dip lomacy. Let’s look for a minute at reasons why hunger is everywhere in Eu rope. Once Europe was one Europe now it is two Europes. One Europe is in the 16 Marshall plan nations. The other is under the wing of soviet Russia. The great bread basket of Europe is in the part controlled by Russia, j^pcludingthe. Ukraine. In the other part of Europe, the hungry part, there was a deep freeze in spring followed by terrific drouth. Such crops as might have been are failures.

LIPSETT (An ILNS Featvre) Is Britain’s Labor Government guilty of totalitarian tendencies? It it willing to trade England’s heritage of personal liberty for a pottage of governmental regula tions and labor control, as the in terests of a planned economy de mands? The charge seems farfetched, yet a recent speech in the House of Commons gives cause to think. It was not made by Churchill or any other Conservative Party spokes man, as might have been expected. The speaker was a Labor Party veteran and former coal miner from Wales, Rhys Davis, now serv ing his eighth term in Parliament. The object of his criticism was the so-called Control of Engagement Order which authorizes placement of unemployment workers into es sential industry jobs, whether they like it or not. The order is part of a series of recently enacted emer gency measures giving the Labor Government extraordinary powers to cope with the crisis. Rhys Davis, in asking for an an nulment of the order, told the hush ed House: “This (order) takes the line that the Nazis—both in Germany and Italy—took when they were in an economic crisis. Dictatorship is very easy. You don’t want to argue with anybody. Simply give them orders. That is what they did in Germany. “I have been 50 years in the la bor movement and I say to my friends on the front bench—a day of reckoning will come to you for this ... I think we need a labor government which returns to the simple decent principles that we used to preach on the socialist platform, to clean up this foul taint called directing people to certain jobs. “I shall be told I am embarras sing the government in moving this motion. The soul and spirit of the British people are behind what I say today. It may be said it will bring the government down.
