The AFL and CIO have been turned down on a joint bid for Army help in combating what labor spokesmen term the “misinforma tion” reaching troops in the field about labor troubles at home. In a statement and in explana tions from high officials, the War Department yesterday took the po sition that Army publications and the Army News Service tell the news “honestly and objectively,” and that it would be a mistake for the de partment to have any part in dis tribution of material slanted in any way. “The War Department,” a fomial statement said, “cannot take upon itself to police all American publi cations or withhold from soldiers publications which they want to read.” Statement Studied. Len de Caux, CIO News editor and one of those who took the mat ter up with the War Department originally, said he wanted to study the department statement further. There was no other comment from CIO or AFL spokesmen. A CIO-AFL delegation presented the labor organizations’ views to Undersecretary of War Patterson on March 7. They mid him they be lieved antilabor propaganda was be ing fed to servicemen overseas from a variety of sources and asked co operation in combating it. The matter was brought up at Secretary of War Stimson’s press conference yesterday when a re porter asked what steps the Army had taken as a result of the labor delegation’s call. Defends Story Handling. Mr. Stimson replied that the de partment’s policy was to give sol diers an accurate and impartial ac count of all news and “competent students of newspaper technique, In cluding the editors of the CIO News and the American Federation of La bor clip sheet, have examined the material distributed to Army publi cations and news services and have commended it for telling the news honestly and objectively." Later Col. Edward L. Munson, jr., chief of the Army information branch, added this statement: “The confidence which soldiers now have in the news they get through the Army would speedily vanish if they felt we were attempting to slant or sugar-coat the news for any pur pose." Guadalcanal Strike Story Unconfirmed CLEVELAND, Mar. 24 UP).—'War and Navy Department officials said yesterday they had no official word on a reported demonstration by sol diers on Guadalcanal Island last summer expressing disapproval of a strike of miners at home. The demonstration was reported in Cleveland by Philip Scacco, 28, former private in the 37th (Ohio) Division, who said American soldiers on the island “threw down their guns" in protest after reading news paper accounts of the strike. Mr. Scacco, who recently received an honorable medical discharge after Southwest Pacific action, said “several hundred of us” Joined in the demonstration last summer. The troops were not then in joined combat, he said, although they were frequently bombed. Mr. Scacco said he heard that at least 2,000 troops on the island ex pressed disapproval of the strike after the news “had gotten around by grapevine.” The former soldier related the men were not mutinous in their reaction. “The noncoms and officers cir culated among the men and talked us into dropping the idea,” he said. “We forgot the whole thing after Selinger buys and sells all kinds of jewelry—pays fair prices after expert appraisal, sells the Jewelry for appraised price plus a small brokerage fee!
