BEGINS NEW PHASE Parley Ends With Ill-Feeling Intensified—Split Due to Continue. By JOHN C. HENRY, labor’s warfare headed into a new phasa of reprisals and recriminations today as both the Committee for In dustrial Organization and the Amer ican Federation of Labor prepared to Intensify their struggles for domina tion in the face of yesterday’s failure to effect a reconciliation. Breaking up in obvious anger, but with apparent unanimity on both aides as to the position taken by the opposing committees, the peace nego tiators left very' little possibility of any further meetings, seemingly, the American labor movement of more than 7,000.000 organized workers will remain split indefinitely. Only the slim prospect of admin istration pressure, or an unexpected internal crumbling of one or the other of the two factions, remain as factors which might force a resumption of efforts. Discussed at Cabinet Meeting. Frequently embarrassed by the labor •trlfe, the administration never has taken a position in support of either group and has made no outward ef fort to bring them together. It is known, however, that the matter was discussed at last week's cabinet meet ing and some development may result. Possibilities of internal dissension In both the labor wings are not too remote. In the C. I. O., it has long been understood that the International Ladies’ Garment Workers are fret ting at continuance of the split and Its financial burden on established unions such as theirs. On the other side, several State and city central labor groups have declined to follow orders from A. F. of L. headquarters to disassociate themselves from La bor's Non-Partisan League, close ally of the C. I. O., or to purge themselves of the C. I. O sympathizers. As its next step, according to Philip Murray, chairman of the C. I. O. Ne gotiating Committee, "the C. I. O. will now consolidate its unions and con sider calling a national convention as provided for at our Atlantic City meeting. We will also promote the establishment of industrial union councils In cities and States through out the Nation.” Green Outlines Program. At the same time. William Green, president of the Federation, announced hi* group would go its own way in pressing for a legislative program, par ticularly a wage and hour law, with the added implication that increased vigor will be thrown into the C. I. O. fight on all fronts. Yesterday’s conference, climaxing two months of effort foundered on the issue of whether the entire C. I. O. membership should be admited to the Federation at once under in dustrial charters or whether it should be taken in piecemeal after extended negotiations in seperate industries. The lewis group had insisted through out, and their position was affirmed by a surprise meeting yesterday of representatives of all their 33 affil iated unions, that equal treatment be given all those entering the Feder ation. Actually, the issue Is one of con trol of the Federation since the C. I. O. membership now exceeds that of the older group and Immediate merger of the two would transfer majority voting control to the O. I. O. leaders. Statements Issued. Both negotiating chairmen issued statements last night, each blaming the other faction for failure of the conferences. "The acceptance of the C. I. O. proposal." George M. Harrison, A. F. of L. chairman said, "would have been not only an act of treason to those organizations which have al ways been loyal to the American Fed eration of Labor, but would have established the principle of dualism within the Federation itself. "Acceptance of the C. I. O. pro posal would not have terminated, but would have enlarged the conflict now raging and would have transferred the war within the Federation itself. In addition, acceptance of the C. I. O. proposal would hereafter have sub jected every organization in the Amer ican Federation of Labor to constant attack within as well as without the fold. There would not and could not be any public good in a settlement of that nature. In addition to the con flict within the ranks of labor, em ployers everywhere would be caught between conflicting unions and con flicting forces, although both would be chartered and recognized by the American Federation of Labor." Statement of Murray. Mr. Murray, at the same time, de clared : "We have offered the A. F. of L. our entire membership. They have refused our offer. The onus for the deadlock must be placed on the repre sentatives of the A. F. of L. "When they can make an offer to protect the interests of labor and to promote genuine labor unity, we will be pleased to sit down with them again and go into the matter. "In the meantime, tfte conferences sre adjourned sine die.” Aids for Housewives.

HENDAYE, Fra neo-Spanish Fron- ^ tier, Dec. 22—The capture today of strategic Teruel after a week of fierce siege fighting gave the Spanish gov ernment its first important civil war victory since last June’s offensive west of Madrid. Confirmation of the fall of Teruel. insurgent strong point at the south ernmost tip of the Aragon front, came from both insurgent and government headquarters, along with reports of terrific casualties. The battle, regarded as the first major test of the government’s armed strength since Insurgent Generalis simo Francisco Franco concentrated his forces in the Aragon, was still rag ing around the fallen city. The in surgents, at the latest report, recap tured a fortified position at Los Mor rones west of Teruel. (Success of the government's surprise offensive against Teruel recalled the drive made westward from Madrid in which Belchite and other towns were taken. On July 6 the government had ad vanced 15 miles west of Madrid. Subsequently, however, the insur gents in counter-attacks regained most of the territory they had lost. (The only other notable govern ment victory in the war was the disastrous rout of an insurgent army, composed largely of Italians, on the Guadalajara front last March. This army seemed on the verge of capturing Madrid when a combination of weather, war planes and stiffened government resistance completely altered the situation.) Official government dispatches— following an earlier premature an nouncement that the strategic provin cial capital had been occupied—indi cated part of the old quarter known as “The City of Rock,” remained in insurgent hands. Only isolated bands of the insur gent garrison still were resisting. Franco's officers acknowledged. They said Salamanca headquarters consid ered the city, which had been spear head of Franco’s lower Aragon line, as lost. Fifty thousand troops took part in the government's drive to smash the Teruel spearhead, which had con stantly threatened to split the gov ernment’s coastal territory between Valencia and Barcelona or to sever Madrld-Valencia communications.

By the AteosteUd Press. TOKIO. Dec. 33.—Po’lce declared today their eeeret arrerc of 370 *us pected agitators had bared arthritic* for a "general recede tlon based or communism.” ▲ member of Parliament and sev eral former university professors were held on suspicion of conspiring in communist and pacifist movements. They were rounded up In a nation wide series of raids at dawn last Wednesday. “The main point of their movement apparently was to lead a general revolution based on eommunism," the metropolitan police board said. “Since the outbreak of the Chinese incident they have used every oppor tunity to spread anti-war propaganda throughout the nation. "Therefore the authorities have been forced to arrest those who violated the peace preservation law, disputed the private property system and sought to change the state structure.” Many citizens appeared stunned by the arrests and there was a wide spread belief that they were made to deflect the nation's attention from the strained international relations. Ordi narily, they said, such a campaign would have been kept secret for months. Farm Parties Accused. Police declared three organizations— the Labor-Farmer party, the Prole tarian party and the All-Japan Coun cil of Labor-Farmer Unions—directed the alleged movements. The home ministry immediately or dered dissolution of the three parties as disturbers of the peace. Police said they confiscated radical litera ture, documents and information on Leftist movements throughout ths world in a raid on their headquarters. News reports by the Communist party in the United States, police asserted, were sent to Japan They said seized documents showed a program of opposition to fascism and war, co-operation in world-wide social democratic movements, instruc tion to shape campaigns to condi tions in various nations and employ ment of legal methods for fostering their activities wherever possible. An effect of the last measure, they said, were proletarian demands for regular labor wages for soldiers in the Chinese campaign, attempts to force commodity prices up and efforts to influence Japan's International di plomacy. Educators Arrested. Kanju Kato, a member of Parlia ment and chairman of the Executive Committee of the Proletarian party, . was one of those arrested. Four for mer university educators known to i have been arrested were Tsunao Ino i mata and Kanson Arahata, formerly of Waseda University; Gitaro Omorn, former Tokio University professor, and Itsuro Sakisaka of Kyushu Impeml University. Mosaburo Suzuki, member of the Tokio Municipal Assembly; Inoeuke, a noted author, and other leaders of the three parties also were taken pris oner. «■-—-. The Son and Moon. „ . Rises. Sets.
