Hawaii Strikers Seek
To Take Over Firms,
Committee Is Told
An attorney for Hawaiian steve
j dore ■ companies today told Con
! gress that the 79-day dock workers
strike is an effort to wrest from
management the control of its
industry.
James P. Blaisdell. counsel for
seven strikebound companies, said
it is not simply a bid for higher
wages. He declared the CIO
Longshoremen's and Warehouse
men's Union wants "forced arbi
tration or else.”
Mr. Blaisdell testified before the
Senate Labor Committee.
Harry Bridges. ILWU president,
was due to follow Mr. Blaisdell to
the witness chair.
Opposed to Arbitration.
The committee is considering a
bill by Senator Knowland, Re
publican. of California, to provide
for a presidential fact-finding
board whose recommendations
could be made binding at dis
cretion of the President.
Mr. Blaisdell said the employ
ers are opposed to letting a board
decide the dispute. "We are op
posed to compulsory arbitration
in principle,” he said.
When opening the hearing.
Chairman Elbert Thomas read a
statement which said:
"There is no question in my
mind where the power lies to set
tle this dispute. The power lies
in the hands of the government
of Hawaii and in its Legislature."
Mr. Blaisdell said the Territory
is "to all intents and purposes,
shut off from the rest of the
world” when its sea lines are cut.
He added:
"Therefore, when the ILWU
strikes the docks in Hawaii it
strikes not only against seven
stevedoring companies, but against
half a million people.”

Police arrested 96 pickets Satur
day trying to stop 59 men from
boarding the Isthmian Steamship
Co.'s freighter Steel Flyer. And!
yesterday Hawaii Stevedores. Ltd.,
organized only last week, used tugs1
to get 70 workers on the ship with
out crossing the pier entrance
picket line.
The Steel Flyer, however, lost
33 AFL members of its 45 man
crew. They walked off after the
striking CIO International Long
shoremen's and Warehousemen’s
union cancelled their picket line
passes.
In addition, Henry Schmidt,
leader of the 2.000 ILWU steve
dores who struck for higher pay
May 1. gave notice that any ship
worked by the new company
would be declared “hot'’ and
would be boycotted by the ILWU
on the Pacific Coast.
The Steel Flyer, from Mobile,
Ala., carried tinplate — vitally
needed by Hawaiian pineapple
canners; fertilizer, foodstuffs, au
tomobiles and steel pipe.
Hawaii’s legislature awaited a
special session call by Gov. In
gram M. Stainback. He is ex
pected to issue the proclamation
tomorrow. Gov. Stainback plans
to ask for a labor peace program,
including authority to seize the
docks if necessary.
2,500-PoundGermanBomb
Is Made Safe in London
By the Associated Press
LONDON, July 18—A 2,500
pound German bomb that dropped
on London during the 1940 blitz
finally was made safe yesterday.
An Army bomb disposal unit
pulled its fangs by removing a
rusty fuse. Half a square mile of
a crowded London district was
roped off and nearly 2.000 people,
including 427 patients in a nearby
hospital, were evacuated. An
other 58 patients, too ill to be
moved, were taken to a rear wing
of the hospital, as far as possible
from the bomb site.
Even dogs and cats were
rounded up and hauled out of the
danger area. Police had to rein
force the red flag and rope cordon
to keep back the curious.
Ma.i. F. S. Knight and a six
man bdmb crew drilled the fuse
out in 90 minutes of tense work.
They had taken over when a con -j
