They felt that if principal officers came from large countries, the smaller countries would fear big - nation domination. Mr. Oldenbroek wants the head quarters to be in London. But London is not acceptable to the AFL or the CIO, whose leaders say that if London Is selected the new international would be domi nated by the British Trades Union Congress.

The Canadian Christian Work ers’ Federation accepted, but was advised by President Oaston Tes sler of the Catholic international not to send delegates.
