Proposals Are Submitted
by Eden to France
and Italy.
By (he Associated Press.
LONDON. Feb. 3.—Great Britain’s
answer to renewed submarine "piracy”
was understood today to be a blunt
proposal for "no-quarter” retaliation
on submerged submarines caught un
accompanied on Mediterranean Sea
routes. .
This remedy, and reinforcement of
naval craft policing Mediterranean
waters, were described as the main
points in suggestions British Foreign
Secretary Anthony Eden submitted
yesterday to France and Italy.
More Ships Concentrated.
Britain concentrated more warships
in the Mediterranean and expected
the other two nations to follow suit.
Stopping piracy and air bombard
ment of defenseless citie*—both out
growths of the Spanish civil war—were
Britain's main foreign problems of the
moment. Mr. Eden was also con
cerned over the Far Eastern situation,
however, as was shown by his con
sultations yesterday with United States
I Embassy officials.
Atlee Demand Ignored.
Pending an official investigation,
Mr. Eden did not heed the demand
made by Laborite Clement R. Atlee
yesterday that Spanish insurgents be
i warned "further outrages on British
subjects will be met by confiscation”
of one or more insurgent ships.
The foreign secretary was dealing
with the sinking of the British mer
chantman Endymion last Sunday as
an isolated case despite the Spanish
government s charges that Italy had
furnished insurgent Generalissimo
Francisco Franco with submarines.
N. L. R. B.

last. April started obeying this act.
This is simply not fact. "Since last
April 12 (when the law- was upheld
by the Supreme Court) there have
been 8,000 charges of violation
"I don't mean a majority of em
ployers have violated this law, but
the number of such violations has
been infinitely too high.”
Analytes Charges.
One by one, Mr. Madden analyzed
and denied the charges outlined last
week by Senator Burke, who. he said,
apparently "has been greatly imposed
Reviewing correspondence between
himself and Senator Burke, Mr. Mad
den concluded that the Nebraskan
"has apparently been furnished with
a supply of misinformation, half truths
and trivialities, coupled with some ex
pressions of opinion in magazines
which are opposed to the purposes of
j the National Labor Relations Act. and
, has thought it possible to build an in
I dirtment out of such materials.”
In opening hi* detailed defense, Mr.
Madden referred to the initial obstacle

placed in the boards way by the
Liberty League Committee of 58 law
yers who asserted the law was uncon
stitutional and advised that it be not
‘‘At the very beginning of the
board’s work,” Mr. Madden said, "an
attempt began to prevent the board
from functioning at all by securing
injunctions from Federal District
96 Victories in 97 Cases.
"The Senators will understand the
meticulous care with which each step
in these deliberately obstructive pro
ceedings had to be met,” Mr. Madden
said. "There were 97 of these suits
in all, spread over every circuit in the
United States. Final decisions in favor
of the board have now been obtained
in 96 out of a total of 97 injunction
suits, and the 97th will Inevitably be
decided in accord with the 96 within
a short time.
"Is this complete rout of those who
sought to obstruct and delay and
thwart the will of Congress evidence
of incompetence? Instead, I assert
that a more competent and workman
like piece of legal stall work has never
been done by any agency or enterprise,
either in or out of the Government."
The board chairman denied claims
of partiality toward the Committee for
Industrial Organization, as compared
to the American Federation of Labor
by citing 14 pro-A. F. of L. decisions
out of 20 in which the two labor fac
tions were in direct conflict.
Mr. Madden spoke most bitterly of
the "grave impropriety” of trying the
Weirton Steel Co. case "either in the
newspapers or before this committee
at the same time that it is being tried
in the manner provided for in the
statute, in the hearing room.”
'■'I desire further to make it plain
that this impropriety is not of our
making and is extremely distasteful to
us,” he said. “I wish further to state
that while others may have already
decided the merits of the Weirton case,
the board has in no sense decided
them, and it would be‘the grossest im
propriety on its part to do so before the
trial has even been completed and the
record studied.”
‘Freedom of Press’ Cases Defended.
Discussing alleged interferences with
freedom of the press, Mr. Madden tes
tified that they grew out of efforts to
determine how printed material was
being used by employer* against
whom board complaints were pending.
In the celebrated case of Mill and
Factory, in which material was sub
poenaed in connection with proceed
ings against Weirton, Mr. Madden
"If the respondent company did
cause the article to be written or
printed and distributed among its
employes, that would prove or might
tend to prove a violation of the act.
The subpoena was for the single pur
pose of obtaining an answer to those
questions. I can think of no prece
dent or conceivable reason why an
editor who has knowledge of some
thing which is relevant to the issues
in a trial or hearing of a public
cause should not be under exactly
the same duty as any other citizen
to appear and give evidence.
Sensitivity Held Beside Point.
•'Much has been written which sug
gests that the board in the Barclay
case was reacting to the criticism of
itself, rather than to the possible
' violation of the act by an employer.
Whether or not we are sensitive to
criticism is beside the point. We are
in fact used to having our cases tried
in the newspapers and magazine* at
the same time that they are tried
in the hearing room. What no court
would tolerate for a moment we have
no power to prevent, even if we
would. Real poise and balance on the
part of our trial examiners is re
quired to conduct their hearings in
that kind of an environment, and our
people succeed very well in main
taining that poise."
The chairman said he knew of no
C. I. O. organisers being given
"blanket subpoenas" and would see
that it never does happen.
Senator Burke, during questioning,
read a board decision which he in
terpreted as an Indorsement of the
sit-down strike, a practice which he
described as "a dagger right at the
heart of our economic system."
"Do you censure General Motors
for having in its employ today hun
dreds of former sit-downers?" Mr.
Madden asked.
"No," the Senator conceded, "but I
do censure a Government agency for
appearing to indorse the sit-down.”
Mr. Madden denied any such blanket
indorsement, but asked Senator Burke
if a prior violation of the labor rela
tions law by the employer made any
The Senator said it would not.
After reading a letter of complaint
from an attorney alleging that the
board protects incompetent workers.
Senator Burke said he had received
"hundreds" of such complaints.
"We don't do anything of the kind,”
the chairman retorted.
