NLRB Backs Dismissal
OfCaseAgainstUnion, Rejects Denham Stand By tht Associated Press Sharply differing with its own general counsel, the National Labor Relations Board has af firmed dismissal of unfair labor practice charges against an AFL union in Portland, Oreg. The board yesterday unani mously upheld a trial examiner who threw the case out on grounds that the board already had re fused to take jurisdiction over the same company, Haleston Drug Stores, Inc., in a previous case in volving union representation. The board found, in its earlier decision in April, that the com pany’s business was not sufficient ly involved in interstate commerce to permit NLRB to intervene. In the new case the company charged that the AFL Hotel and Restaurant Employes’ Union had picketed its stores illegally trying to force the signing of a closed shop contract. The NLRB general counsel, Robert N. Denham, who has much authority independent of the five man board, challenged the ex aminer’s finding. He said it would prevent the company from offer ing new proof of its interstate operations. Mr. Denham, who has clashed with the board before on ques tions of authority, argued that once he has issued a complaint in an unfair practice case, the board had no right to dismiss it on grounds such as those in the Haleston ease, a finding that tak ing the case would not effectuate the policies of the Taft-Hartley Act. In rejecting this argument, the board declared that the “final au thority” of the general counsel .ends after he has issued the com plaint and submitted the case to the board. Jewish Doctor Reinstated By Reich City After Protests ly the Associated Pros* OFFENBACH, Germany, Nov. 4. —Offenbach has given its answer to charges of anti-Semitism by reinstating a Jewish doctor as a city physician. The doctor, Herbert Lewin, was named chief of the women’s clinic by the city council last night. The vote was 29 to 15 in favor of Dr. Lewin over a German doctor tem porarily appointed to the post. The councilmen also suspended the deputy mayor, holding that he waa responsible for the cancella tion in September of Dr. Lewin’s original appointment. That action touched off a con troversy. German newspapers charged anti-Semitism was a gov erning factor in the case, and American Military Government officials ordered an investigation. The deputy mayor had said he felt Dr. Lewin might “resent treating non-Jews” because of the abuse Jews were subjected to during the Nasi regime. Irish Parliament Backs Nationalized Transport Sy the Associated Prost DUBLIN, Nov. 4.—Ireland’s Dail (Parliament), brought the coun try’s transportation system a step closer to national ownership last night.

Lewis, according to a book to be published today, re gards the steel and automobile industries as unintentional allies with him in his fights against the , coal operators. | Saul Alinsky, in “John L.; i Lewis, an Unauthorized Biog raphy,” quotes a statement to this effect by Mr. Lewis, head of the United Mine Workers Union. Mr. Alinsky says “this remark is the key to his grand strategy in all coal strikes.” “When we control the produc tion of coal,” Mr. Alinsky quoted Mr. Lewis as saying in an inter view, “We hold the vitals of our society right in our hands. I can squeeze, twist and pull until we get the inevitable victory. When ever we strike, time is always on our side, for coal is basic to our economy. "There are not huge profits in the coal industry, but there are enormous profits in steel, autos, rubber and other industries. Stop Year-'Round Sessions For Prince Georges Counfy Schools Urged A proposal that Prince Georges County schools be operated on a 12-month basis, with staggered quarterly vacation periods, as a means of relieving overcrowded conditions was presented last night to the County Civic Federa tion. The organization, after receiv ing a resolution to that effect from Walter F. Mulligan, its pres ident, designated a committee of 11 to study the proposals. The committee was directed to report back at a future federation meeting. Such a plan, Mr. Mulligan as serted, would provide for full utilization of school buildings, thus reducing the number of pupils in any given term by one fourth. Pay Would Be Tear-’Round. The emergency measure, if adopted, also would enable the county to provide year-’round sal aries for teachers, instead of only 10 months as at present, Mr. Mulli gan pointed out. He warned of the possibility of overbuilding in the next few years, asserting that such a build ing need may decline within the next two decades. His proposal, he added, also would provide the county respite from the problem of selling new bond issues to a public already burdened to the limit with bond servicing charges on past issues.” In submitting the resolution, Mr. Mulligan urged federation mem bers to give it serious study. 308 Classrooms Needed. The federation head said coun ty school officials have reported a need for 308 more "acceptable” classrooms to meet anticipated en rollments in the next year or so. To construct these “would cause the present tax levy to rise to an unbearable level.” the resolution stated. Labor (Continued From First Page.) ning dangerously low • • ♦ only a 10-day supply remains at one State-supported college.” Illinois Rationing Fuel. The Illinois Governor went on to say that coal dealers In his State already are rationing fuel in half ton lots and that their supplies soon will be depleted. Many deal ers, he added, have no coal at all. “Industrial activity is threat ened with extensive curtailment,” Gov. Stevenson stated. “One of the largest cities in Illinois ad vises it has but one week’s supply of industrial coal and that some plants are down to a three days supply. The same circumstances prevail in many other commu nities." The UMW has about 40,000 members on strike in Illinois and about 20,000 in Indiana. Some of the larger Illinois operators have been represented as anxious to make a settlement with MJ. Lewis, who called his Policy Committee to the Chicago meeting Monday presumably to put pressure on those groups. Although a coal mediation con ference here appeared imminent, there was no indication that President Truman will invoke the Taft-Hartley Act any time soon. Steel Agreements Delayed. On the steel front. Federal offi cials were disappointed at the slowness of the big producers in signing strike-ending agreements with the CIO United Steelworkers. So far not a single major com pany has followed the lead of the Bethlehem Steel Corp. and agreed to give their employes, free $100 monthly pensions, Discussions on accepting the Bethlehem settlement terms have been going on between President Philip Murray’s union and Re public Steel Corp., third largest producer, and two other big com panies, Inland and Youngstown Sheet and Tube, have agreed to renew negotiations. Key to the situation was the action of the giant United States Steel Corp., which so far has not started talks with the union. Kentucky Firm Signs. The Newport (Kentucky) Steel Corp., which employs about 7,000 workers, signed a strike-ending agreement last night, but more than 400,000 steel workers were still idle. Capitulation of a few more big steel companies would aid settle ment of the soft coal strike. Word that Ching would call in the coal operators for a con ference came both from industry sources and highly-placed Fed eral officials. Mr. Ching returned from New York today. All coal-strike peace talks are 1 Off at this time. First the North ern and’ Western operators broke coal and you stop steel. Stop steel and you stop autos and then tires and every part of our economy. “Therefore, as a strike pro gresses, the hostility of the press and the Governin'” .t begins to build up pressure against us; but on the other hand the pressures for profits in steel and autos also develop and increase. “The industrialists of autos and steel begin to apply pressure on the coal operators to accede to our demands, so that their own fabulous profits will not be inter rupted. Thus we become the im movable anvil, with the operators lying on us being hammered into surrender by the pounding blows of steel, autos (here Lewis laughed) and all our other indus trial allies or accomplices, if you will." Mr. Alinsky wrote that “to Lewis the labor movement should be independent and strong enough to force the Government to re spond to its will, rather than that labor should respond to the de sires of the Government.” Man in Wheelchair Seized on Highway For Drunken Driving By Associated Press DANVILLE, Va., Nov. 4.— Now we’ve seen everything. State police have placed charges of drunken driving against a man riding a wheel chair-complete with State license plate—on a heavily traveled highway near here. Passing motorists thought the man was ill, but a hos pital examination caused police to jail him for drunk driving. off negotiations with Mr. Lewis, and now the Southern mine own ers have stopped talking to the union. Top Federal officials said that it was President Truman’s policy in dealing with the strikes in coal and steel to help the disputants reach agreement voluntarily, rather than bring the force of his high office to bear on the parties. Comment on Story. Commenting on a story pub lished by the Chicago Tribune that Mr. Truman reportedly is ready to ’’hurl the book” at Mr. Lewis, the officials said the Pres ident has no intention of invok ing strike injunction provisions of Taft-Hartley against the UMW at this time. ‘‘The President is counting on the coal strike being settled by collective bargaining,” one official said, "just as he is counting onj the steel strike being settled by collective bargaining. "Just as soon as we see what the steel strike pattern is, we ex pect for things to start moving in coal.” Mr. Truman told his news con ference last week that he would not hesitate to use Taft-Hartley, a law he has tried to persuade Congress to repeal, when he be lieves either strike has caused a national emergency—a threat to the country’s health and safety. Meanwhile, in Cleveland the CIO convention extended “full support” to the strike of the! UMW. Mr. Lewis broke with the CIO i seven years ago after setting it! up, but several weeks ago he offered to help finance a war chest for the striking steelworkers. The convention adopted a spe cial resolution extending to the coal miners the CIO’s "complete solidarity” in support of the strike. 1 Burned as Fire Routs 30 at Rooming House A rooming house fire chased 30 hastily clad persons from a three story building at 4 Logan Circle early today, but all escaped in jury except one man who suf fered minor burns. Earlier, a two-alarm blaze caused considerable damage to a tire drop at 312 O street N.W. William Clem, 46, of the Logan Circle address, occupant of a first floor room, was the only person hurt when Are of undetermined origin gutted the room and sent heavy smoke throughout the building. Occupants made their escape by a rear stairway. Mr. Clem was treated on the scene by fire men. Firemen had not determined cause of the tire shop blaze. The one-story building is occupied by the Harvey Dudding Tire Co., the Associate Tire Co., and the O 8treet Tire Co. The first alarm came at 3:02 am. and the second was turned in 5 minutes later because a high wind threatened to spread the Are. Firemen answering the second alarm, however, turned back to their station after arriving on the scene because the flames had been brought under control. The in terior of the building and con tents were considerably dam aged, firemen said. Judge J. F. T. O'Connor Leaves $400,000 Estate By th* Associated Press LOS ANGELES, Nov. 4.—The will of Federal Judge J. F. T. O'Connor was admitted to probate yesterday by Superior Court. It disposed of an estate of about $400,000, most of which was as signed to scholarship funds for the University of North Dakota and three church schools in his home town of Grand Forks. Judge O’Connor, former Con troller of the Currenty who died here September 28 at the age of 82, also asked that his tombstone bear an inscription quoting Presi dent Roosevelt: “He kept the banks soupd and your money safe." ■ * CIO Left-Wing Purge Takes Cautious Turn As Session Nears End By the Associated Press CLEVELAND, Nov. 4.—Selec tion of an executive board pro vided the big test today of the new right-wing controls over the CIO. In sharp contrast to the predic tions of a week ago, there were few delegates to the 11th CIO convention who would say that all leftist-controlled unions would be purged by the time delegates adjourned tonight. Some of the reasons for the shift in opinion were rooted in the sudden realization that Left Wing unions like Harry Bridges’ long-shoremen on the West Coast and Ben Gold’s Fur and Leather Workers would be hard to cast out—or even to riddle in mem bership raids. At least four unions were cer tain to be tossed out if the Exe cutive Board could be satisfied that the membership loss was worth risking before the conven tion adjourned. Mergers Are Assured. The unions are the Mine, Mill and Smelter Workers, United Public Workers, Office and Pro fessional Workers, and Food, Tobacco and Agricultural Work ers. A widespread merger of weak unions with strong ones was al most assured—whether they re main in the CIO or band together in a third labor federation devoted to left-wing objectives. Challenges from the convention floor were anticipated in case the fur workers nominated Mr. Gold, or if the longshoremen named Mr. Bridges, as their selection to the 51-member executive board. Mr. Gold has made no bones about his membership in the Com munist Party. The convention amended the CIO constitution to bar all Communists from sitting on the board—and also to author ize the board to toss out unions whose leaders believed in Commu nism or followed the party line. Mr. Bridges was accused fre quently during the convention of following Soviet policy. The West Coast leader denied that. He said he was not under Moscow instructions when he ad vocated helping China and trad ing with Russia. He said business men didn't look on both sides of a dollar to find a Soviet hammer and sickle Insignia. Joseph Curran, president of the National Maritime Union, advised Mr. Bridges to “keep his - nose out of our union’’ when the San Francisco labor chief men tioned that the longshoremen were the only ones observing a picket line thrown by the Marine Engineers’ Beneficial Association. Mr. Bridges described that un ion "right wing.’’ Mr. Curran said Mr. Bridges didn’t have “the guts to sup port” a resolution barring CIO participation in the World Fed eration of Trade Unions. Calls Argument Specious. He said Mr. Bridges’ argument that the longshoremen needed help from dock workers in other countries during strikes meant nothing because all the free un ions in that line were members of a new federation. Mr. Curran said Mr. Bridges would get little support behind the j “Iron Curtain” if the Kremlin ob-1 Jected. The new World Labor Congress will be formed in London next month. Mr. Bridges argued his group should be in both. But the CIO pulled ou* of the WFTU last spring, charging Communist domination, and helped to create a new world movement in co operation with the AFL and other American trade unions. The left-wing warfare which started at this convention will ex tend for months to come, because Organization Director Allan S. Haywood and the top officers of CIO were pledged to wipe out the left-wing opposition. Legal Aspects Reported Delaying Left-Wing Ouster NEW YORK. Nov. 4 OP).—The New York Daily News, in a story from Cleveland, says the CIO will hold up its purge of leftist unions until it can build a case that will stand up in court. The story, written by Jack Tur cott, said the unexpected delay was insisted on by three of the CIO’s top lawyers—General Coun sel Arthur j. Goldberg, Herman E. Cooper and Isidore Katz. ‘‘We’ve got to build up the rec ord the lawyers say we’ll need if the Commie unions start lawsuits against the CIO,” the story Quoted one union president as saying. The huge United Electrical Workers’ Union and the smaller Farm Equipment Workers, both in open rebellion, were expelled Wednesday. Instead of the immediate ex pulsion of the remaining leftist unions, the story said, committees will be named within the next #0 days to hear formal charges against the CIO organizations which consistently have followed the red line. The News said the only quick action expected is to deprive offi cers of red-tinted unions of their seats on the Executive Board. Such a delay would discard the blueprint calling for revocation of 10 union charters by the 51-man board tomorrow morning, the News said. The newspaper quoted leftist leaders as saying that CIO Presi dent Philip Murray is afraid to go through with the ousters be cause it would mean the lost of about $50,000 a month to the CIO.

The 4,300 union workers, who are seeking a 25-cent-an-hour wage increase from the Capital Transit Co., contend their eamr ings fall short of the amount nec essary to maintain the commonly accepted standard of living. Two budgets for last August were submitted by E. L. Oliver, who is presenting the union’s case to the five-man arbitration board at the Hamilton Hotel. Both budgets are for a family of four, nicluding a man and wife, a boy of 13 and a girl of 8. BLS Figures Used. One of the budgets was based on that of the Heller Committee for Research of the University of California and projected to cover Washington costs. The other was the Bureau of Labor Statistics budget covering the cost of city workers. Here are the figures: Heler Com’tee. BLS. Food -$1,291 $uo8 Clothing.. 397 477 Rent - 557 624 Fuel, electricity and refrigeration _ 193 181 House furnishings.. 164 82 Miscellaneous _ 1,201 980 Total consumption items..-$3,803 $3,452 Social Security Tax 30 30 Income Tax. 203 143 Total Budget-.>4,036 $3,825 Mr. Oliver then introduced an exhibit giving the earnings of bus and streetcar operators at the rate of $1.45 an hour as $3,016 a year. This is $1,020 less than the total of the Heller Committee budget and $609 less than the BLS budget. The company’s position is that hourly rates have risen faster than the cost of living and that there has been no rise in living costs since the last wage settle ment on July 1, 1948, when a 16 cent increase was given. Introduces Exhibit. This was stated by E. D. Merrill, Capital Transit president, when the hearing opened. The company is to give its case when the union’s presentation is completed. ' Mr. Oliver also introduced an exhibit showing the continued rise in the standard of living and the increased use of such articles as, sewing machines, lawn mow ers, telephones, washing ma chines, radios, and television sets. Alfred A. Colby, chairman of the arbitration board, remarked that it is possible to live without a television set. “And without a radio, too, even in buses,’’ Mr. Oliver re joined. The requested wage increase would be a flat boost for all employes in more than 90 classi fications. Present wages range from $1.02 for watchmni in the various departments, to $1.45, the top scale for bus and streetcar operators, and $1.58 for top me chanics and welders. Soft Coal Production Drops 145,124,000 Tons By th« Associated Press Soft coal production Is now about 145,124,000 tons behind last year. Most of the difference can be attributed to work stoppages by the United Mine Workers, in cluding the current strike which rounds out its seventh week to morrow. The National Coal Association reported today that bituminous production from January 1 through October 29 this year was approximately 349.148,000 tons. In the corresponding period of 1948 it was 494,272,000. Production last week is estimat ed at 2,760,000 tons. In the corre sponding week last year it was 12, 805,000. The previous week this year it was 2,540,000. Last week’s production was from mines manned by UMW workers west of the Mississippi, those manned by the independent Pro gressive Miners Union, and non union mines. World Seafarer Dies In His Own Bathtub Sy the Associated Frost SUNDERLAND, England, Nov. 4.—Sixty-year-old Frederick Ram say loved the sea. He had sailed all over the world.

Compton is stepping down from the chairmanship of the Nation’s top scientific defense agency. Dr. Compton said yesterday poor health was forcing him to quit as head of the Defense De partment’s Research and Develop ment Board. President Truman accepted the resignation with the “utmost regret.” Dr. Compton is a former presi dent of the Massachusetts Insti tute of Technology. He had served one year as head of the; board, which includes two mem bers each from the Army, Navy; and Air Force. The agency super vises all scientific projects affect-; ing military defense. Mr. Truman was said to have1 no immediate plans for a suc cessor to Dr. Compton, who will go on extended leave November 10 pending nomination of a newi chairman. Dr. Robert F. Rine-i hart, the board’s executive sec-! retary, has been named deputy, chairman. Dr. Compton said he is leaving the agency in good condition—but he cautioned against any arbitrary! cuts in its fund and added, with out going into detail: “Sometimes the effect of high level investigations or attacks is to multiply excessively the con-; trols on research agencies, and thus to defeat the stated objective of ‘efficiency’.” Mr. Truman said he is reas-! sured by Dr. Compton’s statement that the board during the past year has sent the Nation’s mili tary leaders a complete report on the status of all research which: might be important 'strategically. “The fact that this report in cludes estimates of performance, characteristics and dates of avail ability,” the President said, “makes it an emphatic answer to vooal and superficial critics of defense policies.” In his letter to the President, Dr. Compton said he was leaving the Government “on medical ad vice which I cannot ignore.” He said the board has made some important new contributions to the defense program in the last year. Besides the complete report on the status of all military research programs, he said the board has evolved in co-operation with the DR. KARL T. COMPTON. Joint Chiefs of Staff a system atic plan for guidance of research ers which is based on the “strate gic thinking” of the Point Chiefs. Dr. Compton reported that major inefficiencies in Federal re search are not due to faulty tech nical planning, but to the “com plications of excessive checks and counterchecks.” He said these multiply the man power requirements for securing research results and discourage j competent scientific personnel j from entering a Government career. His letter concluded: “Such handicaps appear to be ; partially inescapable in the com plexity of government and its long chains of public accountability; yet there are encouraging in stances of recent notable improve ment in policies of research ad ministration in governmental agencies. But sometimes the ef fect of high level investigations or attacks is to multiply exces sively the controls on research agencies, and thus to defeat the stated objective of “efficiency.’* I should say that this latter com ment is general, and not related particularly to the military estab lishments. “In conclusion, may I express my deep appreciation of the op portunity which you have given me to serve in so interesting an assignment. I believe that the Research and Development Board is one of the most valuable parts of our national security organiza tion. I shall deem it a privilege; to be of whatever further assist ance the Secretary of Defense or my successor may desire, subject only to the limitation of my abil ity.” Commercial plywood as known today dates from 1905 when it was first made in St. Johns, Oregon. B-29 Crashes Into Sea Off Bermuda, Killing 10 of 13 U.S. Airmen By tVi« Auoclated FreM HAMILTON, Bermuda, Nov. 4. —A B-29 Superfortress, crippled by engine trouble, crashed Into the sea a mile from shore last night. The big plane caught fire after hitting the water and 10 of the 13 American airmen aboard were killed. Four crewmen managed to jump out after the stricken bomber plowed into the waves, but one died of burns a few minutes later. The three survivors, rescued by an oil company executive in a rowboat, were taken to the United States base hospital at nearby Kindley Field with minor injuries. Bermudians watching from shore could hear the screams of the others trapped in the blazing ship. Col. Jack Merrill, Kindley Field commander, said the plane had turned back from a weather ob servation flight when one of its four engines failed. Losing alti tude, the disabled plane ap proached Kindley Field but was unable to land because another plane was on the runway, Col. Merrill said. Unable to regain altitude on three motors, the ship crashed into the sea. Witnesses said the plan* smacked into the sea with ter rific force, skipped over the water like a skimming stone and then settled slowly a mile from Ber muda’s north shore. Escaping gasoline caught fire. William Gleason, operator-man ager of nearby Standard Oil Co. docks, and two St. George resi dents put out in a row boat and picked up the three survivors. New Foray by Red Troops Into Iran Is Reported By th* Associated Press TEHERAN, Iran, Nov. 4.—A re ported new foray into Iran by Soviet troops gave Russian-Iran ian relations another jolt today. A high-ranking Iranian gov ernment source gave this account of the incident. The foray occurred Sunday at Baghcheh Sara, north of Astara, a port on the western shore of the Caspian Sea. Soviet soldiers attacked Iranian border troops. The Iranian units resisted. Firing lasted several hours, but no casualties were reported. The Russians withdrew when Iranian reinforcements arrived. Iranians have accused the Rus sians several times in recent months of violating the frontier.
