Senate's Control Bill Appeases
Interests, Morse Tells Printers Senator Morse, Republican, of Oregon, charged in an Interna tional Typographical Union con vention speech here today that the economic control bill passed by the Senate this week was “hon eycombed with appeasement of special interests.” A former member of the Nation al Labor Relations Board, he also accused business leaders of “stag ing a Samson act” by trying to pull down American labor by the Taft-Hartley law. Calling for Senate labor-man agement subcommittee hearings on enforcement policies of the NLRB and General Counsel Rob ert N. Denham, Senator Morse accused Mr. Denham of having “abused the arbitrary, capricious power invested in his office.” He said that the subcommittee is looking into the ITU complaints about the way that Mr. Denham has handled the question of union compliance with board orders. National Unity Urged. Turning to foreign policy, Sen ator Morse declared that “Soviet Russia intends to lick us the first time she thinks we are weak enough.” He urged complete na tional unity “to give a clear, strong demonstration to the world that we are determined to pre serve the peace even if we have to use military force to prevent aggression.” He described the Senate’s eco nomic control measure as full of “appeasement, loopholes for war profit-making, and protections for special interests.” He predicted that the voters next November “will demonstrate that they don’t agree with that kind of thing.” Loyalty Oath Urged. A requirement that candidates for ITU offices swear they are not Communist Party members was urged by ITU officers. Delegates will vote, probably to morrow or Friday, on the proposal offered by the laws committee, with approval expected. At the same time, they are believed likely to reject a resolution sponsored by a Washington delegate, James J. Shea, to have union officers file non-Communist affidavits with the National Labor Relations Board. The committee’s proposition, backed by President Woodruff Randolph’s administration in the union organization, is one of 183 to be voted on before adjourn ment Friday. The convention has acted on 57, including 17 last Monday, but has adopted only 10. Pension Increase Voted. The most important approved yesterday will increase from $16 to $18 a week the union's pen sion payment to members who have reached the age of 60, have a continuous membership of at least 25 years, and are unable to work because of age or dis ability. That resolution replaced 21 separate proposals for revision of various features of union pension payments.

But one thing is certain: the expenditures for defense will be even greater if the enemy’s Sixth Column—infla tion-is not checked. Naturally we must have the money to provide our armed forces with all they need. And we must also have money for vital civilian needs. . So mu), more than ever before in our country's history, protecting the buying power of the dollar is essential. nik : * ,,f' ■ 7" 1 ^ To protect the value of the dollar, we must make sure that our Government isn’t called upon to tax, borrow or spend a single cent for things that are unnecessary at this time. And certainly unnecessary spending by any body, including government, has absolutely no excuse in times like these. Let’s be clear about one thing: There are two essentials to winning a war these days. One is winning the victory in the field. The other is making sure our economy is not being bled to death. • • • The life insurance companies bring you this message because of its importance to all Americans.
