It may be argued that under our system of government, the Vice President is merely a figurehead, that he cannot influence Congress or the President, that he must remain a dec orative nonentity. -Even if this argument should be ad Sgnced by Henry Wallace's friends, it fat demolished by the record of his predecessor, John Nance Garner. It is inconceivable that such a legislative crisis as the over-riding of the Presi dent's veto on the tax bill—a crisis which in Great Britain would have re quired the formation of a new govern ment could ever have developed while Garner was Vice-President. -^4?^ir?1"- ZUbe 3rie6mer-($rtm(Lo.

Yet during his two terms as Vice-Presi dent the great body of New Deal leg islation was effectively steered to en actment. Of course, Mr. Wallace is a liberal. Yet during his one term as Vice-Presi dent, the New Deal seems to have lost its hold on Congress. Vicious, reac tionary legislation has been adopted to the frequent embarrassment of the White House. On such basic issues as taxes, subsidies and a Federal ballot for soldiers, Congress has flatly re fused to go along with the President. We are not attempting to load the entire responsibility for this situation on Mr. Wallace's shoulders. Other ser ious factors are involved. But the 111* feeling between Congress and the White House which exploded into the open with the resignation and subse quent re-election of Alben Barkley as Senate Majority Leader is at least partly attributable to the fact that Roosevelt lacks a forceful and effec tive lieutenant on Capitol Hill. These are facts—impartial facts— which should be obvious to observers of any political persuasion. In at tempting to analyze the facts from here on, we wish to make clear that we are expressing our personal views and not the official policy of the Amer ican Federation of Labor.

About three years ago when we were planning to inaugurate the "La bor For Victory" broadcasts of the American Federation of Labor, we in vited Vice-President Wallace to par ticipate in the opening program. We were unable to reach him directly and had to deal with a secretary who said the Vice-President would take the in vitation under advisement and let us know. A few days later we were in formed by the secretary that the Vice President would be glad to speak on LaVerne J. Knox, 1008 Hughes St. the program if it were under the joint auspices of the AFL and CIO but would have to decline to take part in a straight AFL program for fear of showing partiality to one group in the labor movement. Lo and behold our astonishment when we learned last November that Mr. Wallace had succeeded in over coming his scruples to the extent of agreeing to address the CIO conven tion in Philadelphia! 1 Recently Mr. Wallace engaged in a barnstorming trip through the West during which he flatly predicted on several occasions that President Roosevelt would be re-elected to a fourth term. His statements were brought to the attention of the Presi dent at White House press confer ences and the President, who natur ally prefers to make his own decisions as to his future political course, ap peared to be somewhat embarrassed by the inquiries. All of which brings up the question as to whether Mr. Wallace was motivated by solicitude for his chief or by a desire to claim exclusive jurisdiction over the Presi dent's coattails.

Phones 47 and 160 GOVERNMENT ASKS UNION ASSISTANCE IN PAPERCAMPAIGN Washington, D. C.—Joseph D. Kee nan, Vice-Chairman of the War Pro duction Board, appealed to members of the American Federation -of Labor to assist the Government in the waste paper salvage drive. His statement follows: "One of the most acute problems facing the government today is the manufacturing of sufficient quantities of paper and paperboard to meet the demands of the military and critical civilian requirements. "The increasing use of paper in the manufacture and delivery of war weapons and supplies, coupled with an extreme shortage of manpower to cut timber for the production of wood pulp, an essential ingredient in thie manufacture of paper, has createti this critical shortage. The use of ad ditional waste paper is the only means we have to offset this condition. Thousands of extra tons of waste paper therefore are needed immedi ately to replenish the fast dwindling inventories at the paper mills which are now dangerously low. In many cases, mills are operating on a day to day basis, and some have been forced to shut down two or three days a week and therefore operate far from capac ity. "Millions of paperboard containers are being sent overseas to our fighting forces. Waste paper is one of the chief raw materials from which these containers and shipping materials are made. A large proportion of the things sent to our armed forces—ma chines, equipment, guns, ammunitions, food and medical supplies, blood plasma and clothing has to be in dividually wrapper in paper that has been water proofed or in other ways specially treated. Much of this paper has to be impregnated with asphalt and' other waterproofing material, so that everything shipped will arrive in perfect condition at the battle areas. There are 700,000 items for the armed forces that require paper packaging. In addition there are thousands of ways paper is being made into actual weapons of war. Some of these itenjMJ are: bomb bands, airplane wing tips, small supply parachutes, parachute flares, fuel tank linings, practice bombs, practice targets, ammunition chests, blasting powder kegs, camou flage paper, dust covers for motors and many other items. "That there is great need for an in creasingly accelerated flow of waste paper is most certain. It must be col lected from every conceivable source— households, retail stores, business of fices and industrial plants. Practically all kinds of waste paper can be used. Exceptions are waxed and other im pregnated paper, and paper con taminated by use. Every American man, woman and child can cooperate in this campaign—at home—in the of fice—in the store and in the industrial plant. "Labor unions and their members are urged to participate in the waste paper salvage drive to their fullest extent to assist in aiding the critical shortage that is facing the country to day in order that there will be avail able sufficient containers for the ship ping of war material and foods to our armed forces overseas. "Labor unions are urged to appoint committees to actively participate In this campaign through the regular or ganized salvage committees in their locality so that every scrap of waste paper may be turned into use in help ing to defeat the Axis."
