: Final Senate Action
On Labor Measure Is Scheduled Today 8y J. A. O'Leary The Senate is all set to dispose of the controversial labor issue today, without repealing the Taft Hartley law, and move on to the North Atlantic defense pact. If Senator Taft, Republican, of Ohio suceeds, as most observers expect, in writing the rest of his amendments into the labor meas ure, it will look so much like the present Taft-Hartley Act that or ganized labor and the Truman administration are ready to aban don it. They made it clear yesterday that they would rather leave the original law as it is for another year and make it a 1950 campaign issue than accept the substitute of a Taft-led coalition, which re tains the salient features of the Taft-Hartley Act. Will Seek to Defeat Taft. Labor leaders were already pre paring to go after Senator Taft's scalp when he runs for re-election next year, and his apparent vic tory in the current labor bill fight easily will make Ohio the main ring in the 1950 congres sional elections. Seeking to carry out President Truman’s promise to labor last year to repeal Taft-Hartley, ad ministration Senators started out with a bill which did just that by reinstating the Wagner Act with a few modifications. Senator Taft offered a substi tute in two parts. The battle was really decided two days ago when the Senate adopted the first half. 50 to 40. That nailed into the administration measure spe cific authority for the President to use either injunctions, or plant seizure, or both, to head off na tional emergency strikes. Soon after 2 o’clock this after noon the Senate will vote on the remaining half of the Taft plan, which put into the administra tion bill many other major fea tures of the original Taft-Hartley Law without material changes. These include: Continuation of the ban on closed-shop contracts, but permitting the union shop; use of temporary Injunctions against unfair labor practices ban on mass picketing, keeping the Federal Mediation Service in dependent, and exempting man agement from compulsory bar gaining with foremen. Labor Leaden Criticize Bill. Without waiting for this second half of the Taft plan to be voted on, spokesmen for the CIO and AFL left no doubt yesterday that Tuesday’s adoption of the injunc tion weapon makes the bill un acceptable to them. Assuming the Senate will pass the Taft version late today, the administration has two ways of letting the bill die. House lead ers could pigeonhole the Senate measure, or pass it and let Presi dent Truman veto it. The voting to date shows the Taft supporters would not have two-thirds required to override a veto. Senator Taft struck back yes terday at a letter to Majority Leader Lucas from AFL President William Green stating that adop tion of the injunction feature made it a waste of time to try to make the remainder of the bill more “palatable.” “Mr,. Green is undertaking to vote the Senate bill before it passes,” said Senator Taft. The Ohioan contended a veto based on the injunction provision would be untenable because ad ministration spokesmen have argued that the President already has general constitutional power to seek injunctions if a strike en danger^ public health or safety. 3 Senators Sponsor Amendment. There may* be some last-minute efforts to modify the Taft plan before the final vote today, but this was not certain. One of the pending amend ments, sponsored by three New England Republicans, is designed to prevent States from enforcing stricter “right to work” laws than the Federal law. The three Senators are Bald win of Connecticut, Saltonstall of Massachusetts and Flanders of Vermont. Seventeen States, mostly in the South and West, have laws re stricting contracts that make union membership a condition of employment. The Taft bill does not go as far as most of those LOST.

C., June 30.— Sponsors of a dinner here tomor row night at which Vice President Barkley is the scheduled speaker are looking for someone to intr duce him. Dr. W. L. Pressly of Due West, the nation's 1948 family doctor | of the year, yesterday declined to introduce the Vice President be cause of "increasing political agitation” surrounding the dinner. Former Gov. Ransome J. Wil liams, handling arrangements for the $15-a-plate affair, had no immediate comment. Gov. Thurmond has said he will not attend* because Mr. Barkley will be appearing in a political capacity rather than as Vice President. Senators Maybank and Johns ton of South Carolina -say they plan to attend. None of the State’s six Representatives will be on hand, they say. The dinner will be a segregated affair, in that no Negroes have bought tickets. Mr. Barkley has said he will speak to "whoever is there” in reply to questions on his attitude about speaking at a segregated meeting. Hickenlooper Ends First Phase of Case •y th« AueciaUd Pro* ' *■ - Senator Hickenlooper, Republi can, of Iowa today ended the first phase of his case against the Atomic Energy Commission which he has charged with "in credible mismanagement.” Senator Hickenlooper an nounced to the Joint Senate House Atomic Energy Committee, ; which has been hearing the charges, that hi feels he can pro ceed no further publicly until the; committee has acted in closed ses sion on some other aspects of his case. He referred to his charges of commission laxity in security n at- ■ ters, which the committee has said he must present behind closed doors; some international phases of atomic energy opera tions, and "certain more or less technical matters.” In the meantime, the commis sion will present what Chairman David E. Lilienthal called an "ac counting of our stewardship” be ginning next Wednesday. "We will make this succinct, brief and yet comprehensive as possible,” Mr. Lilienthal said. "It should not take many days.” -* Bus Driver to Retire Archie Wells, 60, of 910 North Stuart street. Arlington, tomorrow will be the first bus operator of, the Washington, Virginia St Mary land Coach Co. to retire under aj company sponsored pension plan.! r .11 Pools (Continued From First Pace.) tion Board has permission to con duct the free periods in the morn ings. The Recreation Board has with drawn its personnel so far only from the McKinley pool, because Negroes have begun to use it. The Recreation Board will con tinue to report to other GS1 pools as long as segregation is in effect, according to Milo Christian sen, recreation superintendent. The trouble at the Anacostia pool started around 3 p.m. yester day. While about six colored men and about a dozen white men were swimming in the pool, a crowd of both races began to gather outside. Charles Watson, 21. colored, of 1107 Sumner road S.E., said he was chased out of the pool by the white men. He tore his foot on barbed wire in climbing the fence around the pool. A mounted policeman, Powha tan Daniels, was called and began forcing the crowd of white men back, while other policemen herded a colored group away from the pool. Girl Tells of Injury. Miss Sexton, a senior at Ana costia High School, said she went over to the pool area to “see what was going on.” The first warning she had that she was in danger was when she turned around and saw the policeman riding his horse through the crowd. ‘‘He was pretty close when T first saw him,” she explained today from her Casualty Hospital bed. "I tried to run but before I started running the horse trampled me. I guess the policeman saw me and thought I would get out of his way. But, I didn’t move fast enough.” Miss Sexton was. knocked to the ground by the horse. A photo graph of the incident showed the mounted policeman with his whip raised. In describing what hap , pened, the girl said she “looked up from the ground and saw him whipping the horse as though to get him to move.” Capt. Mark Raspberry, head'of the park police, was at the scene of the trouble. He said the injury, to Miss Sexton was accidental and that Pvt. Danials had called on the girl at, the hospital to apologize. He said Pvt. Daniels was ordered to ride through the crowd to dis perse the gathering. The horse brushed against Miss Sexton, he stated, knocking her to the ground and then stepping on her right foot, breaking two toes. Three men were involved in a fight concerning the distribution of handbills printed by the Young Progressives, urging biracial use of the pool. Rocks were thrown by some in the crowd. Donald M. Long. 20, of 5424 Thirty-second street S.E., a stu dent, was- charged with distrib uting handbills. He elected to forfeit $5 collateral. Joseph Jackanow, 30, of 3547 Kanawah street N.W.. also was charged with distributing hand bills. He did not have $5. but was balled out later by three young women. Jackanow at first refused to talk to reporters but later said he and Long were distributing leaflets when an older man struck at him. When they were put in the wagon to be taken to No. 11 LORDLY WASHABLE CORD SUITS You'll fool cool os o cucumber in these sanforized cord suits.

The third man involved in this fracas was listed by police as Thomas R. English, 39. of 3000 Thirtieth street S E„ who said he was a social worker. He also for feited t5 on a disorderly conduct charge. A 16-year-old colored boy of I the 500 block of Twenty-fifth place N.E. was charged with dis orderly conduct and released to his parents for apeparance in Juvenile Court. | Also charged with disorderly conduct was Toussaint P. Pierce, 23, colored, of 2534 Sheridan road | S. E. He posted $5 collateral for an appearance in Municipal Court today. Those injured included Michael Fitzurka, 16, of 2000 Ridge place S.E., who said a colored boy bit him under his left eye. and Park Policeman Julius Campbell, 32, ; colored, of 920 T street N.W.. who was bruised by a stone which | struck his right arm An unidentified blond white woman, apparently a sympathizer with the Young Progressives, was escorted from the pool area by police, after she had incurred the anger of a group of white men. About 100 persons foljowed her from the park onto Sixteenth street S.E. She became fright ened and began to run, with the crowd in pursuit. To elude the crowd she ran into a home in the 1700 block of Sixteenth street S.E. Police took her away in a patrol wagon for her safety, after the owner of the house, who refused to give her name, started scream ing that the woman was "trying to take my baby." in anotner incident Mary Ann Davis, 14, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Davis, 1248 U street S.E., was struck and pushed to the ground by a group of teeiv-age colored boys and girls as she was stalking on Nichols avenue near bar home. The girl told reporters the col ored youths jostled her, then one struck her and she was forced back against a grocery door at 1926 Nichols avenue S.E. A clerk in the store opened the door to admit her as the police arrived. No arrests were made. Members of the Young Progres sives. which has been responsible for the handbill distribution at the Anacostia pool, were scheduled to meeting with Irving C. Root, superintendent of National Cap ital Parks, today to discuss the pools segregation issue. Gordon M. Atherholt, president of the Northwest Council of Cit izens' Associations, on Tuesday made public a letter which the council had addressed to the Dis trict Recreation Board on June 13, requesting that the rule of segregation be maintained. After citing reports showing the greater incidence of tuberculosis and syphilis among colored resi dents of the District, the letter stated: "It is the position of the North west Council of Citizens' Associa tions that among the foremost duties of the Government of the District of Columbia is the pro tection of the health of its citizens and prevention of the spread of readily communicable and trans missable diseases."
