THE POTTERS HERALD, EAST LIVERPOOL, OHTO PAG. 4 Wfl ... eew AKlf*' 88.'^ TRUTH—COMMIE VERSION—Sure, you’ve seen this picture before. But this is a clipping from “Avanti”, paper of the pro-Com munist Socialists in Rome, Italy.

Atlanta (LPA)—Meeting in At lanta last week 250 representa■ tives of the Textile Workers-CIO determined to push for a 15c an hour wage increase, comprehensive employer-paid insurance programs, and improved vacation pay for 120,000 southern cotton and rayon mill workers. Knowledge of the textile indusj try’s huge profit margin convinced the unionists that the industry can meet their demands without taking it out of the consumer. TWUA President Emil Rieve said: “In, spite of union gains the wages of southern textile workers are still far too low. They are too low to provide the workers with proper living standards, and too low to permit textile communities to be prosperous. Yet even the present low standards are threatened by the ever rising cost of living. Jfci A*. HGRA II n w ■jsente. Where’s Elephant Who Never Forgets Philadelphia (LPA)—Paste this story in your hat. In about two years, you may be able to point i out how the 1948 Republican plat i form was as quickly forgotten as was the 1944 one. Here are con densed versions of the references i to labor in each of them: 1948 GOP PLATFORM We pldege continuing study to improve labor-management legisla tion in the light of experience and changing conditions. Collective bargaining is an obli gation as well as a right, applying equally to workers and employers, and the fundamental right to strike is subordinate only to paramount considerations of public health and safety. Government’s chtef sanction in this field is to promote good will, encourage cooperation and where resort is had to intervention, to be impartial, preventing violence and requiring obedience to all law by nil parties involved. The rights land obligations of workers are commensurate with the rights and obligations of employ ers and are interdependent. These rights should be protected against coercion and exploitation from whatever quarter and with due regard for the general welfare of all. We favor equal pay for equal work regardless of sex. In the past 18 months, the Re publican Congress, in the face of frequent obstruction from the exe cutive branch, made a record of solid achievement. Here (is one) of the accomplishments of the Repub lican Congress: A sensible reform of the labor law, protecting all rights of labor, while safeguarding the entire com munity against breakdowns in es sential industries which endanger the health and livelihood of all. 1944 GOP PLATFORM We pledge an end to political trickery in the administration of labor laws and the handling of la bor disputes. The Republican party is the his torical champion of free labor. Un der Republican administrations, American manufacturing develop ed, and American workers attained the most progressive standards of living of any workers in the world. Now the nation owes these work ers a debt of gratitude for their magnificent productive effort in support of the war. The Republican party accepts the purposes of the National Labor Re lations Act, the Wage and Hour Act, the Social Security Act, and all other Federal statutes designed to promote and protect the welfare I of American men and women, and we promise a fair and just admin istration of these laws. The continued perversion of the Wagner act by the New Deal men- I aces the purposes of the law and threatens to destroy collective bar gaining. Norman Thomas Cover Convention Philadelphia (LPA) Socialist Presidential candidate Norman Thomas arrived here this week to take his seat in the press section of the Republican convention. He’ll be back for the Democratic and Walalce conventions too. Palmer Hoyt, publisher of the Denver Post noted that “too many papers give too many people on the left too much reason to believe that they print too much stuff from the right” So he hired the democratic left-winger to report the party conventions. Over a dozen other papers have arranged with Hoyt to carry the Socialist’s reports. Mean while, reporter Thomas has applied for membership in the Newspaper Guild. Just As Well If G.O.P. Forgets Labor Pledges ■2 mA Iand American won’t Philadelphia (LPA)—You have to rend the fine print in the Republican Party’s platform io learn there’s nothing much in it for the people of the US, and very little for organized labor. Here’s what it savs about la’w “Collective bargaining is an obli gation as well as a right, applying equally to workers and employers and the fundamental right to strike is subordinate only to paramount considerations of public health and safety. Government’s chief func tion in this field is to promote good will, encourage cooperation, and where resort is had to interven tion, to be impartial, preventing violence and requiring obedienef to all law by all parties involved We pledge continuing study to improve labor-management legisla tion in the light of experience and changing conditions.” Omitted from the platform wen any mention of the specific points on which optimistic labor spokes men thought they’d get GOP agree ment—federal aid to education minimum wage legislation, speci fic mention of an FEPC law, e labor |xtension service in the La bor Dep’t Included, after a four-hour figh‘ in the drafting committee, was a housing plant which advocates pub lie low-cost housing. The civil rights program is even less pro gressive than was the 1944 plat form. It omits all mention of the crucial question of a permanent Fair Employment Practice law This, Negro and labor leaders agree, is the testing point of any civil rights program in the politi cal arena. The platform calls for an anti-lynching law. The rest of the civil rights plank calls for abolition of the poll tax (without mention of the method) and states the Republicans “are opposed to the idea of segregation in the arm ed services of the US.” Both state ments leave plenty of loopholes, as the Committee was told by innum erable witnesses befort it deliber ated, Southern Republicans played an active part in drafting plank. this you Any place is far away if have to get there on foot. WARNER BROS, i 'V 'St. 1 Toledano Leaves, Returns To ILO Within One Week San Francisco (LPA)—Vicente Lombardo Toledano, head of the Latin American Federation of La bor (CTAL) and ILO Mexican worker delegate, interrupted a de bate of the Int’l Labor Organiza tion governing body on June 15 and announced both his resignation from the ILO and his immediate re turn to Mexico. The group was involved in a dis cussion of a possible “consultative relationship” with the World Fed aration of Trade Unions when To ’edano broke in. z Previously, at the 1945 conven ion in Paris, he called for a change n the organization to “reflect the hanges in the world scene.” In his resignation speech two lays before official opening of the :onfrrence, he announced that he would not be a candidate for re flection to the governing body. he His explanation was that would be too iffairs in his ■o.
