2 UEW Leaders Attack
Kersfen, but Third Agrees on Red Charge •y th« Auoci«t*d Prm SCHENECTADY, N. Y., Dm. 31.— Two leaders of the CIO United Elec* tries! Workers' Union have attacked a House Labor Subcommittee report that claims the union is Communist* controlled, but the head of the union’s biggest local says he agrees with the subcommittee. After a four-month Investigation, the subcommittee said in a report Sunday that Russia controlled the American electrical industry through domination of the UEW. The find ings were announced by Representa tive Kersten, Republican, of Wiscon sin chairman of the subcommittee. In New York last night, Albert Fitzgerald, president of the union, called the report “the last quack of a lame duck who was defeated by the people at the recent elec tions.” Krtss Agrees With Charges. Lee Jsndreau, a union vice pres ident and business agent of UEW, Local 301, at the huge General Electric plant here, said the report [wag Ma slander ef all 600,000 mem I berg of the union." But Frank Kriss, who recently was elected president of Local 301, on an anti-Communist platform, declared: • I find it unfortunately necessary to agree with the charges of Communist domination made by the subcommittee • • Mr. Kriss said that “throughout our experience in the UEW both myself and my associates • • • have found that the policies of the inter national leaders and their local representatives generally coincided with the policies of the Communist Party locally and nationally.” Fitzgerald Assails Kersten. Mr. Fitzgerald contended the sub committee report was part of a smear campaign against the union. He added: “Rather than our union being 'dominated' by an outside force, it is such union-hating Congressmen as Kersten who are definitely domi nated hy big business interests.” Mr. Jandreau, who was one of 11 present and former members of the local who refused to say at subcom mittee hearings whether they were Communists, declared that it had been proven "over and over again that UEW is controlled by the mem bership alone.” Jandreau termed the UHW an “organization with a war record which has never been rftarged with a single act of disloyalty.” He added that “evidently Ker stem did not include” in his report the “fact that the Department of Justice had found his contempt threat against 301 members was an empty threat without legal Basis.” Army Releases 39 Japs In Christmas Amnesty Sy tho Associated Pross TOKYO, Dee. 31.—A Christmas amnesty has freed 39 Japanese pris oners serving Army provost court sentences.
