UAW Cites Progress
In Consumer Co-ops,
Credits Sound Policy
ly th« Astoctoted Pr*$i
« DETROIT, Jan. 31.—The CIO
United Auto Workers released a
progress report on its mushrooming
consumer co-operative movement to
day and declared it is no “fly-by
night demonstration" against spiral
ing living costs. *
"Urgency was wedded with sound
economic policy,” the union said in
reporting on co-op activities in a
dozen industrial centers in six
Victor G. Reuther, UAW educa
tional director, said the mbvement
represents “a new kind of unionism,”
developed because “nickle-an-hour
tactics cannot avert depression, mass
unemployment and war.”
Cites Need for Education.
It was backed by the CIO policy
of “concerning itself with all social
activities affecting the welfare of
the community as a whole” and
actively supported by the Co-opera
tive League, Mr. Reuther said.
He added that other co-ops,
founded years ago, had failed with
the passing of an economic crisis
because they were not backed with
consumer education.
Because of this, he said, the UAW
has conducted a widespread educa
tional drive for five years among
the union's 900,000 members.
Reports on Expansion.
Mr. Reuther reported to date that:
In Michigan alone the union has
establishments at Pontiac, Detroit,
Lansing, Flint, Jackson, Muskegon,

Red Cross Needs
More Donations
At Blood Center
The new Red Cross blood centei
collected 600 pints of blood in its
first four weeks of operation, but
recruitment of donors must be in
creased before it can begin to sup
ply the city’s full needs.
Rudolph M. Evans, blood recruit
ment chairman, said last night the
center already has had many emer
gency calls for rare types of blood
To date, he said, all calls have beer
filled, but the margin left in certain
rare types has been “exceedingly
na rrow.”
One patient alone required IS
pints of type A, Rh negative blood
According to the Red Cross, this
kind of blood can be obtained from
only about six per*ons in 100.
The annual blood donation goal
of the Washington blood bank has
been set at 30,000 pints. Mr. Evans
appealed to large organizations ir
Government and business, as well
as churches, clubs and social groups
to support the Red Cross program
by organizing donor groups.

Hofei Association Opposes
Renewal of Rent Controls
Sy th* Associated Press
Resumption of Federal control
of rents in hotels was vigorously
opposed yesterday by the American
Hotel Association.
Spokesmen for the organization,
who said it represents 75 per cent
of the hotels in the country, stated
their case before the Senate Bank
ing Committee. The committee is
; considering a rent control extension
I bill which, among other things,
j would put rents in residential hotels
back to their June 30, 1947, levels.
Contending that occupancy of
hotel rooms is •‘declining danger
ously,” Daniel J. O'Brien of Toledo,
"Competition will take care of
our prices. “Freezing of rents in
Ihotels creates a favored class of
'citizens, for they alone are spared
the day-to-day icreases in cost of
labor and supplies.”
Conference in Sofia
To Model Bulgaria
Along Soviet Lines
Ey the Associoted Press
SOFIA, Bulgaria, Jan. 31—Bunt
ing decked the streets of this old
Balkan capital today, heralding an
event which will help transform
Bulgaria into a miniature model of
the Soviet Union.
The bunting is in honor of the
Congress of the Fatherland Front,
a two-day meeting opening Monday.
For this the government is stoging
one of the largest shows in Bulgar
ian history.
At present the Fatherland Front
is a Communist-supported coalition
of all Bulgarian political parties,
dominated by Premier Georgi Dimi
trov. The premier, an old interna
tional Communist, 1* considered one
of the leaders in Moscow policy out
side the Soviet Union.
Authoritative sources say before
this congress is over, every man,
woman and child in Bulgaria will
be embraced within the fold of the
Fatherland Front. The front, it is
understood, will become a political
party in itself, composed of every
element of Bulgarian political life.
Other parties now in the front, such
as the Socialists, will continue their
i individual identities, but only with
I in limits.
This important step in Bulgaria’s
