AFL Chief Warms People Must Put
Their Democracy To Work By Voting
Detroit (ILNS).—“To prove that
American democracy can work for
the benefit of the American people,
the American people themselves
must put their democracy to work
by voting,” President William
Green of the American Federation
of Labor warned here in continu
ing the AFL campaign against the
Taft-Hartley labor law.
“No candidate who defends the
Taft-Hartley Act or favors its re
tention on the statute books de
serves the support or the votes of
American voters,” Green told 500
delegates and guests of the sixth
biennial convention of the Brother
hood of Sleeping Car Porters.
“Certainly any worker,” he add
ed, “who votes for such a candi
date is voting against his own in
terests and against the interests of
a free America.”
Hails T-H Debate
Green sharply assailed Harold E.
Stassen, who appeared in Detroit
recently to answer President Tru
man’s opening address of the pre
sidential campaign. He pointed te
the two speeches as evidence that
the Taft-Hartley Act constitutes
one of the principal issues in the
national political campaign and
“Organized labor is gratified
over the development of this debate
and hopes that it will be continued
throughout the campaign, foi the
Taft-Hartley Act is a real issue to
the millions of working men and
women of our country who are suf
fering under its oppressions. It
would be unfortunate if candidates
for public office or political parties
were permitted to evade this issue
and give it the silent treatment.
American workers and American
voters want to know the attitude
of all who aspire to public office on
the Taft-Hartley issue and they
have the right to know before they
Deplores Stassen Position
Continuing, Green declared:
“I am certain that the 8,000,000
members of the American Federa
tion of Labor studied, with great
interest, the conflicting views ex
pressed by President Truman and
former Governor Stassen on the
Taft-Hartley Act. ... I am equal
ly certain that they were deeply
disappointed by the position taken
by Mr. Stassen.
“His facts were wrong, his fig
ures were misleading and his con
clusions were entirely off base. I
say to Mr. Stassen that he will for
feit all claim to being considered a
liberal if he persists in defending
the indefensible Taft-Hartley law.”
In conclusion, Green appealed
for a full vote Nov. 2, saying:
“This year more than any other,
it is of vital importance that every
worker registers and votes. He
should also see to it that members
of his family and his friends who
can qualify to vote should do like
Cites 1946 Result
“The 80th Congress, which en
acted the Taft-Hartley law, which
placed property rights above hu
man needs, and which failed the
people on such vital issues as high
prices, decent housing, higher min
imum wages, social security im
provements and an effective and
truly American civil rights pro
gram was elected in 1946 by only
one-third of the qualified voters in
the nation.
“If only ona-third of tho Amer-
Railworkers Want
Courts To Decide
Right To Strike
Washington (LPA)—Do railroad
workers still have the right to
strike? That’s the question the
Railroad Brotherhoods seek to have
answered in an appeal filed with
the Supreme Court. 7
The appeal is from a drastic per
manent injunction which Justice T.
Alan Goldsborough of the District
of Columbia issued several months
ago against three of the Brother
hoods—the Locomotive Engineers,
Firemen & Enginemen, and Switch
That permanent injunction fol
lowed an earlier preliminary order
prohibiting a scheduled strike by
the three unions. Its terms were so
sweeping, the unions said, that it
outlawed a walkout by the Broth
erhoods “any time, any place, for
any reason.”
Though the dispute out of which
the injunction grew has been set
tled, the three Brotherhoods want
a high court review of the validity
of the injunction as a guide for the
future. They are hopeful the Sup
reme Court will rule that Golds
borough exceeded his powers,
violating both the Norris-La Guar
dia and Railway Labor Act.
“The right to strike is an im
portant right recognized by the
courts and Congress alike as nec
essary to enable workers to exer
cise liberty of contract in bargain
ing with their employers,” the Bro
therhoods declared in the petition
submitted t« the Supreme Court.
“Petitioners (the Brotherhoods)
are entitled to know in this case,
and for future cases, whether they
have the right to strike or whether I
that fundamental right has now
Meanwhile, negotiations between
16 non-operating unions and the
railroads in Chicago collapsed
when the roads rejected the unions’
wage demands. The dispute now
goes to the Nat’l Mediation Board,
while the unions will take a strike
vote. However, it will take a long
time before all avenues under the
Rail Labor Act are exhausted and
a strike actually faces the 1,000,000
workers involved.
Metal Workers Strike Continues
Torrington, Conn. (LPA)—This
week begins the second month of
the strike of Local 645, metal work
ers council, Industrial Union of
Marine 4k Shipbuilding Workers
against the Torrington Co., makers
of industrial needles. Nearly 2100
workers are fighting to save their
union from the assaults of the pro
fit-swollen c6rporation which has
defied a state mediation board rul
ing and insists upon the workers’
abandoning their strike before ne
gotiating the terms of a new con
ican voters go to the polls again
this year, we can expect the same
kind of Congress to be reelected.
But if all our people make certain
to register and vote on Nov. 2, we
can elect a new liberal Congress
and give it a clear mandate for
Hoover For More
Cabinet Jobs, Less
Social Security
Washington (LPA) Ex-Presi
dent Herbert Hoover's attempts
last week to explain the plans of
the Commission on Government
Organization have increased the
fears of union men and other pro
gressives in Washington that the
Commission will recommend severe
cuts in the nation’s already inade
quate social welfare programs.
In a speech in Washington,
Hoover said that more Cabinet
members are needed to relieve the
President of administrative bur
dens, but then went into a tirade
about the cost of government.
“Taxes,” the depression president
said, ‘have come very close to soc
ializing savings.” He hinted that
social security programs might
have to be pared to spare the rich.
Commission experts are believed
to be preparing an attack upon
Federal inheritance taxes, knowing
full-well that wealthy families can
escape state inheritance taxes by
“establishing a residence” in states
which don't have death and gift
Last week AFL President Will
iam Green made public a letter he
had sent to ex-President Herbert
Hoover protesting the appointment
of Dr. Lewis Meriam of Brookings
Institution as special studies dir
ector for the Commission. Meriam’s
projected studies of government
agencies for Hoover include an in
vestigation of the Social Security
“Meriam’s whole approach to the
subject of social security is so
warped by his predilections in fav
or of a means-test relief system
that no competent student will
have confidence in his findings,”
Green said.
Recalling Hoover’s frequent cri
ticism of “waste of public funds”
Green called upon him in the name
of the AFL “to avoid the obvious
waste of public funds involved in
asking a person who is committed
to the system of dole and public
charity to make recommendations
for the administration of a 20th

Hoover’s only reply was to invite
Green to submit his own views on
social security administration to
the Commission. He defended Mer

Brookings Institution “has not been
seriously challenged all these

spokesman described his investi

‘Voice of Labor’
Increases Power
Chicago (ILNS).—WCFL, the
“Voice of Labor,” has increased its
transmitting power from 10,000
watts to 50,000 watts, thus greatly
augmenting its midwest audience,
it was announced here.
President William A. Lee of the
Chicago Federation of Labor point
ed out that this brings “the na
tion’s only labor-owned A. M. radio
station to a power equal to that of
any station in the United States,
since 50,000 watts is the limit of
power allocated by the Federal
Communications Commission.”
The station, founded by the late
Edward N. Nockels, for many years
secretary of the central labor body
here, has served organized labor
since its inception.
It has been utilized by the labor
movement in its campaign against
the Taft-Hartley Act. Also, it has
covered a number of labor conven
tions. A nightly program, “Meet
the Union Printer,” has been broad
cast sinde the beginning of the
Typographical Union’s strike
against Chicago newspapers, and
many other labor organizations
have used the station to tell their
story to the public.
Two Million Fewer
Women Working Now
Than On V-J Day
Washington (LPA)—There are
now almost 2,000,000 fewer women
working than there were three
years ago, at the end of World War
II. At the same time, the number
of men workers has increased by
more than 9,000,000, according to
Census Bureau figures compiled by
the Women’s Bureau.
There are fewer women in the
factory workers group, but in the
ranks of “proprietors, managers,
and officials” the women have al
most held their own.

Citing “luxury" taxes on cos
metics and such items as baby
powder and baby oil, a group of
magazines published for women is
opening a war on this group of
levies. It is argued that, among
other things, oil for baby’s champed
bottom is scarcely a luxury.
It is argued also that many wage
boards allow set amounts for cos
metics. The Department of Labor
in its “Government Girl” budget
makes such an allowance.
As an accompanying note, the
Bureau of Internal Revenue re
ports that for the first month of
the new fiscal year (July), luxury
taxes collected dropped from 10%
on cosmetics, furs, jewelry, lugg
age and handbags.

The Girl Scouts have a new uni
form redesigned in leaf green. The
innovations, designed by the fam

signed WAVE and SPAR uniforms
in 1942, include button-down lapels
and tailored action backs.
The Intermediate Seout uniform
is a simple long-sleeved dress but
toned down the front with deep
armholes and wide skirt panels.
Senior Scouts will wear a simple
shirt waist dress buttoned to the
waist with long sleeves. The same
dress, fashioned with a yoke-back
and long sleeves, will serve as the
informal uniform for the Girl
Scout leaders.
For formal wear the Girl Scout
leaders will have a two-piece suit
in wool or in long fiber Egyptian
cotton. All other uniforms are of
sanforized green cotton covert.
Tradition will be maintained in
thfe deep green beret worn by the
Intermediate Scouts. Senior Scouts
will have a modified overseas cap

If you want to be a WAC,
WAVE, or WAF, you can join up
now. The Army, Navy, Marine
Corps and Air Force started enlist
ing women on the same status as
men in uniform on Sept. 15th.
But you may find it as hard to
get in as trying to crash an exclu
sive sorority. The number is limit
ed by Congress to 2 percent of the
total authorized strength, which
has not as yet been definitely
established. It is said the Army
will take in 150 women every 2
weeks until it’s 1948-1950 quota of
7,500 enlisted women and 500 of
ficers is attained.
If you are joining up for the first
time, you must be a high school
graduate and have reached your
18th birthday. Those under 21
years must have permission of
their parents or guardians to enlist
in the Army or Air Force. The low
er age limit for Navy women re
cruits is 20.
The Army assures parents that
with the intelligence tests, physical
examinations, character investiga
tions, psychiatric screening and
personality interviews set up as re
cruiting hurdles, the 18-year old
daughters in the Army will be in
very good company.
The Marines, limited to 1,000 en
listed women and 100 officers, hope
to fill their quotas for the first few
months entirely from among the
