Edgar Hoover for what he terms “a vicious attitude toward in tellectuals.” Dean Bamaby C. Keeney told i an American Association of Uni-1 versity Professors last night that, I while Senator McCarthy, Repub lican, of Wisconsin “knows what j he is doing,” Mr. Hoover “does not.” Dean Keeney said Mr. Hoover, in a speech last November 13 when he was given the Cardinal Gibbons Award, “bowed in pass ing to academic freedom." ! "He did not define academic freedom.” said Dean Keeney, “but the implications are quite clear former police lieutenant has de cided against an appeal to the United States Supreme Court. The United States Court of Ap peals recently upheld his con- i viction. from what he said, and it is also quite clear that he does not understand what the intellectuals are trying to do. “This,” he said, “is the fault of the intellectuals.” Dean Keeney quoted Mr. 1 Hoover as saying, “Pseudo lib > erals who seek to conceal them ! selves behind a cloak of ffb erallsm have been beguiled, captivated and perverted be cause they have not been con scious of the horror, duplicity and godlessness of atheistic communism." Dean Keeney went on: j “And in the next breath, he ; demands that academic free dom makes possible free Inquiry and free inquiry demands that youth be acquainted with both sides of the question. “I am disappointed in J. Edgar Hoover, who is a good security officer and whose investigators proceed with somewhat more ] sophistication than his speech writers.” Man Takes Bride, Begins 15-Year Term in Prison By tea Associated Brass CHARLES TOWN.

Bender Sees Merger of Unions As Birth of Big Political Effort i By tKa Associated Brass Senator Bender, Republican, of Ohio, said today there is “good reason to believe” that projected merger of the AFL and CIO marks “the birth of a political effort comparable to that which produced the British Labor Party.” Senator Bender praised the planned labor merger on an other score. He said it should “definitely end costly Jurisdic tional disputes.” A member of the Senate Labor Committee, Senator Bender dis agreed with Henry G. Ritter, president of the National As sociation of Manufacturers, who said the merger could lead to "dangerous monopoly” from an economic standpoint. Mr. Ritter added, in a state ment yesterday, that “labor monopolies should be outlawed for the same reasons that busi ness monopolies have been banned.” CIO President Walter Reuther said in an interview there was “no basis" for Mr. Ritter’s charge, and added: "The people who now make that charge are the . very same people who have always tried to block any kind of labor organ ization at all.” ‘ Senators Ives, Republican, of New York, and Douglas, Demo crat, of Illinois, both members of the Labor Committee, also said in separate interviews they found no basis for Mr. Ritter’s statement. Senator Bender, agreeing with his colleagues on that point, appeared disturbed about pos sible political implications of the merger, now due for final CIO and AFL approval later this year. He told a reporter: “This could be the biggest labor organization in the world and its influence for good could be unlimited. But by the same token, its potential influence for control of one or the other THE EVENING STAR, Washington, D. C. FKIDAT. FKBaQABT It, »#SS political parties is a factor to be reckoned with in American political history. “At this moment the CIO and AFL have either taken over the Democratic Party or been taken over by that party's left wing. “Both organizations are politi cal organs of the Democratic Party and use all their prestige for that one party. “No one can forecast the ulti mate effect of the planned merg er, but there is good reason to believe that we are witnessing the birth of a political effort comparable to that which pro duced the British Labor Party.” Senator Ives did not mention possible political implications of the merger. He said the merger would benefit the organized labor movement. Senator Douglas said that out lawing the merger on the basis of possible monopoly would be “no more indicated than refus ing the NAM the right to have more member firms.” ** A-19 ; AFL-CIO Merger Plan ; Moving Into Action; ' Beck Gives Approval ly tfw Associated Fran B , MIAMI BEACH, Fla., Feb. 11. —AFL union leaders have unani mously approved the AFL-CIO merger agreement and the pact j today appeared well on its way t to being put into effect, t The indorsement by the AFL . Executive Council was only ona in a series of necessary ratify , lng actions but AFL President f George Meaney said he was con fident they will be accomplished. I Told that some business lead ■ ers have expressed fear that welding the AFL and CIO into a ■ single 15-million member organ i ization would tend to create a > labor monopoly, Mr. Meany ex ■ pressed disagreement. 1 "We represent only a minority of workers in the country,” Mr. ; Meany said. “There are more than 60 million workers and we've organized less than 25 per cent of them.” Sees Mass Farming Unionised. Mr. Meany said millions of workers probably never could be organized because their work doesn’t lend itself to union ism. He mentioned individual farmers or hired hands as ex amples, but said that mass farm ing operations could be organ ized. He said that the “white collar” or office worker should be given the same opportunity as other workers to improve their work ing conditions through unions. “The philosophy of the AFL has always been not to organize just for the sake of organizing.” Mr. Meany said, “but to organ ize where the application of trade unionism could bring about im provement in wages and working conditions.” Mr. Meany and CIO President Walter Reuther, along with other top AFL and CIO officials, signed the detailed agreement to merge their big organizations here Thursday amid predictions that their 140 unions would be brought under the same banner before the end of the year. Beck Approves Merger. Dave Beck, president of the AFL's largest union, the Teams ters, was absent from the AFL Executive Council meeting but sent a message that he approved the proposed merger. Arriving here a few hours later from Washington, Mr. Beck told reporters he was “very agreeably pleased” with the merger deal, particularly its assurances that jurisdictional disputes between rival unions would be dealt with by voluntary means rather than any compulsory procedure. Mr. Beck said he wants to make sure that this principle of voluntarism is carried out in the new merged organization’s con stitution. “I am 100 per cent for George Meany to become president of the new organization,” Mr. Beck added. Reserve Plan Indorsed. The AFL Council, yesterday winding up, a 10-day meeting at the Monte Carlo Hotel, adopt ed a statement giving qualified indorsement to President Eisen hower’s military manpower pro gram calling for a large trained reserve. The council said that while it has opposed universal mili tary training because it might “impose a regimented or mili tarized training program on our youth in peace time,” the Na tion’s reserve forces now are grossly inadequate to meet any national emergency. The AFL group suggested that Congress place a statuatory limit on the number of youths processed annually through th# proposed training program and review the entire plan after two years’ trial. The council also urged that Congress approve a 10 per cent pay raise for more than two million Federal and postal serv ice employes, rather than the • per cent increase recommended by President Eisenhower.
