Labor Hopes for End
Of Taft Act, But Sees Some Union Curbs By James Y. Newton Organized labor's hopes were high last, night for repeal of the Taft Hartley Act by the new Democratic Congress and its leaders were will ing to concede that whatever sub stitute legislation may be passed hardly will be as favorable as the old Wagner Labor Relations Act which imposed no restrictions on unions. The administration, pledged to re peal of the labor law by the Demo cratic platform, already was laying plans for labor legislation. Sec- j retary of Labor Tobin, the “baby”; cabine member who took the stump actively for President Truman, is expected to lead the new investiga tion. Mr. Tobin stated the day after the election that one of the first acts of the victorious Democrats would be to act on their Taft-Hartley pledge. He said they hoped to come up writh a substitute that would be fair to both labor and management. To Consult Both Sides. It was understood that in the drafting of new proposals to Con gress in January, Mr. Tobin will consult representatives of both labor and management. It is the admin istration's hope to work out some compromise that would please both sides, but the Democrats are de cidedly more indebted to labor for its unexpected triumph. Officials indicated that probably nothing definite wdll be decided in the matter until President Truman returns from his Florida vacaton. Expected to work with Secretary Tobin in drafting proposals are Paul M. Herzog, chairman of the Na tional Labor Relations Board; Cyrus S. Ching. head of the Federal Medi ation and Conciliation Service, and John R. Steelman, special assistant to the President. William Green, president of the American Federation of Labor, said in Wellesley, Mass., yesterday that repeal of the Taft-Hartley Act should be "the first order of business ! for the new Congress.” Mr. Green spoke at the 35th Na tional Business Conference spon sored by the Babson Institute. He had iieen scheduled to debate the labor law with Representative Hart ley, Republican of New Jersey, co author of the act, but Mr. Hartley was unable to attend betause of a gore throat, the Associated Press said. Industry Also Dissatisfied. George Meany, secretary-treasurer of the AFL, has said labor would be willing to take the old Wagner Act and possibly some additional amend m«its that may be worked out in conference with management repre sentatives. The Wagner Act simply protected the right of workers to Join unions and to bargain collec tively with management for their common wellbeing. Mr. Meany re fused to say what concessions labor would be willing to make. Industry itself is fat from pleased j with all sections of the Taft-Hartley j Act, notably the parts providings for j voluntary pay-check Reductions of] union dues and for p|ant elecuqSisj before a union shop can be raised as a bargaining point with manage ment. The union shop is where a non-union employe may be hired but he must join the union within a specified period. Unions have won union shop elections, overwhelmingly and they are regarded as unneces sary red tape. What finally will be presented to Congress in the way of suggestions for a substitute right now is any body's guess. Truman Offered Program. Before the stricter labor law was passed over his vote in June, 1947. President Truman submitted a Jabot program to Congress. It called for bans on Jurisdictional strikes, battles between unions as to which should do certain work, and on secondary' boycotts, where employes of one firm strike to prevent it from doing business with another firm. Mr. Truman also suggested a long time study of labor-management problems by representatives of ali sides as the best way of approach ing fairly the attainment of in dustrial peace. But all of his sug gestions were brushed aside by a Congress which went much fur- j ther in enacting the Taft-Hartley ! Act. Aside from its campaign pledge,' the administration considers the action of voters in sweeping from office so many numbers of Congress who supported Taft-Hartley as a mandate from the people to do something quickly about repeal. j To Seek Southern Support. A major problem will be the per- , suading of Southern Democrats, or! a good many of them, to go along j w-ith the repeal and substitute idea.: But administration officials are! hopeful of working out a plan which will command the support of all 6ides. Plans right now call for informal conferences in the matter with labor and management leaders, rather than a formal conference such as was held right after the end of i the war. That big conference,; called by Mr. Truman, was virtu ally a complete failure. Pinal administration ideas may j follow closely the Truman sugges-j tions of 1947. Among the problems posed is what to do to discuorage Communist influence in unions. Labor generally is opposed to the Taft-Hartley affidavit requirement, but Congress most likely will want to write in some type of Commun ist control. Five Argentine Doctors Will Study at G. W. Five postgraduate scholarship have been obtained for Argentine doctors to study at the George Washington University Medical School, the Argentine Embassy an nounced yesterday. An embassy spokesman said the Information about the scholarships has been passed on to the Argentine foreign office in Buenos Aires, where the physicians will be chosen.

ST. 4044 i_ Chest Business Unit Tally Sheet Released To Spur Campaign Figures showing the progress of nine groups of volunteers in Busi ness unit 1 of the 1949 Community Chest drive were released last night by unit Chairman Herbert J. Rich in what he described as an effort to put new life in their efTort to put the campaign over the top. The unit has a quota of $1,785,271 —the largest of any single unit in the campaign this year. At last | Friday's general report meeting, workers of the unit reported 53.14 I Per °cnt of their goal already col lected. “We hope,” said Mr. Rich, ethat1 a study of these comparative fig ures will accomplish two things. First, it will give to those who have done well a sense of satisfaction in a job well done. ''Second, that those chairmen whose divisions and areas have not1 worked as hard as they might have done will see in the statistics proof ■that the job ahead of them is pos sible, and then will get to work and get this big job cleaned up as promptly as time and manpower permit." Mr. Rich pointed out fhat the figures show people are ready and willing to give to the drive for the support of 104 Red Feather agencies in the Washington area. It is up1 to the volunteer workers to see to it that they are given the oppor tunity to give, he declared. The report showed a wide differ ence between various divisions, some of which have collected more than TOO per cent of their quotas, and others less than 1 per cent. No. 3 Area in Lead. Of the nine areas in the unit, '• No. 3, headed by Donald Bucking ham is in the lead, with 83.6 per icent of its quota raised.

Building Bases Directed at Russia, Vishinsky Charges By th« Associated Press PARIS, Nov. 6.—Russia delivered a general blast against the United States today with Deputy Foreign Minister Andrei Y. Vishinsky charg ing in the United Nations that the! Truman administration is building a network of military bases directed! against the Soviet Union and other countries. Mr. Vishinsky also charged that Greece, with the knowledge of the j United States and Britain, is pre-! paring to hurl poison gas at Greek; guerrillas. He did not amplify or! support with evidence his charge concerning poison gas. Mr. Vishinsky and another Slav delegate, Dr. Juliusz Katz-Suchy, also delivered bitter personal at tacks against John Foster Dulles, foreign advisor to Gov. Thomas E. Dewey, and dragged in the United States presidential eleetioh. Adjourns Without Vote. The speeches were made before the 58-member of Political Commit tee of the General Assembly during debate on the Balkan problem. Mr. Dulles told the same committee yes terday that earlier Soviet charges that the United States sought world mastery were "vicious falsehoods.” The committee wrangled from 3:15 to 8:50 p.m. without reaching a c-onclusive vote on the Greek Balkan case, and finally adjourned until Monday w’hen the delegates will tackle a mass of proposals. Mr. Vishinsky said Greece was out to destroy the Greek partisans “by any means, including toxic gases.” He added that the Greek delegate, Panayotis Pipinellis, has shown “he was well acquainted with toxic gases.” “This is no accident,” Mr. Vishin sky said. "Without any compunc tion, his government with the knowledge of the United States and Britain, is preparing to. take such action.” The Russian delegate said the newspaper of Constantine Tsaldaris. t Greek foreign minister, advocated last August that the Greek govern- i ment use gas against the guerrillas.j ('barges 228 Atlantic Bases. j Tire major portion of Mr. Vishin skv’s attack was directed at MrJ Dulles and at United Sjates foreign j policy in general. Referring to a statement made by Mr. Dulles yes terday that the United States had stopped disarming because of the world's fear of Russia, Mr. Vishin sky asked: "Who is threatening you? How is the Soviet Union threatening you?” He said the Soviet Union is threatening no one, but the United States is the one who is threaten ing. He said the United States has 228 bases in the Atlantic area alone. “Where aren't there American bases?” he asked. ‘‘If the United States doesn't dream of world domination,” he asked, “why build all these bases all over the world? What is the use of all these bases? They are not just a Christmas tree.” Turning to Mr. Dulles, he said: “To say that you do not want , world mastery is a story for small [cbsJJdren.” •Chided About G. O. P. Defeat. Both Mr. Vishinsky and Mr. Katz isuch.v chided Mr. Dulles on the Republican defeat in Tuesday’s elec tion, which dashed Mr. Dulles’ j hopes of being Secretary of State. Mr. Vishinsky told Mr. Dulles “I | don’t know whether you’ll ever be [Secretary of State, but I wish you ; luck.” Mr. Katz-Suchy said the views of , Mr. Dulles "are entirely personal affairs and since last Tuesday en ; tlrely a private matter.” He said I sarcastically that “Mr, Dulles’ bi partisan attachment becomes much i stronger after the election.” ■ Mr Katz-Suchy told the commit tee Mr. Dulles was clipping share : coupons in his New York law offices [while Polish and French resistance [fighters were in the field against [ the Nazis.” Dulles Declines to Answer.

I have not re- [ plied before and I do not reply now j because I believe that delegates here [ 1 have an elemental duty to exercise 'self-control- to prevent personal brawling which would injure the 'prestige and usefulness of the ; Assembly.” Mr. Vishinsky also chided British; Minister of State Hector McNeil for [what he called his “strategic love” of Greece.

Executive 4615 Opp.The HECHT CO. on F St. Molotov Says America Rejected Aggression by Defeating Dewey By Eddy Gilmore Associated Press Foreign Correspondent MOSCOW, Nov. 6.—Foreign Min ister Molotov said tonight the Amer ican people rejected a program of aggression and reaction when they defeated Gov. Thomas E. Dewey for President. He said, however, that despite the views of the people in the United States and other countries, plans for a North Atlantic alliance are being projected "to prepare new ag gressions and the unleashing of1 new wars.” The Soviet foreign minister re iterated Prime Minister Stalin’si statement of nine days ago thatj he did not believe a new war would j lake place. “Every one knows,” Mr. Molotov said, "that such things can-1 not bear daylight.” Stalin Believed on Vacation. Mr. Stalin, after accusing the leaders of the United States and j Britain of a' policy of unleashing ; a new war, said such a policy "can only end in an ignominious failure on the part of the iinstigators of a new war.” He said the public forces favoring peace are too strong to permit the instigators to set the course for a new war. Mr. Molotov addressed an audi ence of. Soviet leaders and high party officials at the gaily decorated Bolshoi Theater on the eve of the 31st anniversary of the Russian revolution. This was the second successive! year that the foreign minister had1 delivered the principal address. Mr. Stalin again was not present.1 He has missed .the big event every year since the war. But the meet ing sent him warm greetings and the audience stood and applauded when his name was mentioned. Mr. Stalin presumably is on his annual vacation. First Comment of Official. Mr. Molotov's reference to the Re publican defeat was the first com dence as the Communist delegates! contended. The issue was settled when the! committee accepted a proposal by i Secretary-General Trygve Lie that he should study the whole question of showing films and make a report, to "the appropriate organ of the1 United Nations.” The vote was 33 to 0, with 9 abstentions. ment from any high Soviet official. He said: “The United States elections No vember 2 gave victory to the Demo cratic Party and President Truman. The defeat of the Republicans and Dewey, who advanced a frankly re actionary and aggressive program, proved a majority of the Americans reject this program.” Mr. Molotov echoed Mr. Stalin’s recent charge that some political leaders in Britain and the United States are trying to “unleash an other war.” He called for the j "speediest elaboration” of peace1 treaties with Germany and Japan.; And he rapped the United States for refusing to destroy its stocks of atomic bombs. It was last year at this annual event flAt Mr. Molotov declared ‘he secret of the atomic bomb no longer exists. Defense Pacts Criticized. Referring to the Western Euro pean union—Britain, Prance. Bel gium, The Netherlands and Luxem bourg—and the proposed North At lantic defense pact, bringing in the United States and Canada, Mr.! Molotov said: “There has been a lot of noise lately around the creation of all kinds of unions and blocs of the Western states, although no state is threatening them. “All this hullabaloo around the ! Western unions, Atlantic unions. Mediterranean blocs and so forth hides behind ‘defense’ declarations! which can mislead only people who are too naive. “In actual fact, the aims of these unions and blocs are to prepare new aggressions and the unleashing of new wars, in which one or another ruling group is interested, but cer tainly not the peoples of the United States, Britain or any other coun try.” United States Military Forces Cited. Mr. Molotov said the United States desires to keep its military forces distributed throughout the world and said the "United States military budget is swollen this year to the wartime level and to 11 times greater, for instance, than the 1940 budget.” , Turning to the atomic question, Mr. Molotov said “the overwhelm ing majority of the people” want atomic bombs destroyed despite the United Nations’ rejection of Rus sia's atomic proposals.
