LABOR BOARD IS THREATENED If Railroad Unions Defy It, Its Usefulness Is; Destroyed v PRESIDENT WANTS CONGRESS TO ACT That , Uody Can , Give It rower" to En ',. force Its Decisions Itailroail Strike More Dangerous to Government Than Coal Strike . . : (By DAVII) LAWRENCE (Special Despatch to The Reformer.) i Copyright 1!)22. WASHINGTON, July 3. President Harding feels that since the United States railroad labor board is the crea ture of congress, any defects in its structure must be corrected by the legislative body. This is another way ot faying that if the railway shopmen tlout the authority of the board and continue their strike, the responsibility for making the decisions of the labor board respected lies with congress. And the house of representatives ban just adjourned until August l." -The country is faced with indudstrial war fare and the ill-effects of a. coal strike already prolonged beyond exix-ctations. the government's effort to settle the coal controversy is likely to be success ful though the exact formula is as yet by no means certain and the govern ment is for the moment feeling its wav. Absorbed in the settlement of the coal'strike, the government is none the less aware that the strike on the rail roads involves a greater principle. In the case of the coal disputants, the gov ernment really has no legal power or authority and is purely a voluntary mediator. In the railroad controversy the government has a much more direct influence. The President himself when a member of the senate voted to insert Jevoett Touring, 6 Cylinder, SO Horsepower 106S Announcing the Complete Line of Paige and Jewett Gars We are pleased to announce our appointment as distributors for the Paige -Detroit Motor Car Company, manufacturers of a complete line of passenger cars, including the Jewett. This is the most important busi ness venture we have ever made. It is nothing less than a great opportunity an opportunity for ourselves and for every present and prospective car owner in this community. - The Paige line is an established product with a history of more than 13 years of country-wide popularity. It is made by a com pany of such great financial strength and extensive manufac turing facilities that the quality and value of the cars have re mained unsurpassed. The popularity of the Paige is well earned. It is a sound prod uct and a sound investment. It is a car that has always made good. We count ourselves as particu larly fortunate in securing the Paige franchise at this time. The 1922 line is the finest the com pany has ever turned out, with a remarkable record for perform ance. At the new reduced prices these cars are a great investment opportunity just that. . There may be finer cars on the market than the 6-66, but you can't prove it on the road. The 6-66 has made automobile history on track and hill. It was a 6:66 Day tona model that broke every world's stock chassis speedway record from 5 to, 100 miles on the Uniontown Track. It is a car that is unmatched for power, speed and stamina. It is justly called Master of the Highway. We are also offering the Jewett, the new light six, only recently announced, yet already a sensa ticfri in motordom. The Jewett, designed by Paige engineers and built in Paige shops is the result of long investigation and thorough study. It is a 50 horsepower, six cylinder car of 112-inch wheel base and ample room for five people. It is a car any motorist would be proud to own.' Yet the Jewett touring car sells for only $1065 f. o. b. factory. We are backing this complete line of automobiles with intelli gent and competent service. It is and will be our policy to make your inter est ours. We want you to examine these cars at your earliest opportunity Better still let us give you a ride. Come in and select a car for a demonstration. Ml' Roberts Automobile Co., Inc. 47 ELM STREET a provision in the law which would make strikes unlawful. This was not .linally adopted. There is therefore no penalty for violating the decisions "of tire -United States railroad labor board. Really tlio, tJoveriunent - Much significance, however, may be attached to- a V lute House declaration that the United States labor board is the agency of the government and that when the; loard speaks the government speaks. ; Taken liberally this wo;ihl mean, the arrest for contempt of all the strike leaders who have ret used to obey the , summons to appear before the board." - '-.! - It is -jiot,, yet certain how ; far the President is willing , to go to ,uW 'legiJK force to" compel respect for the decisions of the labor board. In general terms ho has indicated that the? full weight or government .authority was back ofthe board. Uecent decisions in. the fededrai court have, admitted the constitution ality of this transportation act with reference to' the, jurisdiction of the United states' - railroad labor board and have stated -Uatly that unquestionably the, goveiiniicfH would invoke its powers to enforce decisions even though specific penalties for violation of deeisious hadn't been provided by congress. The ri;bt to strike is not questioned but the right to strike on a public utility affecting the nation's food supply is considered by government lawyers to he. -quite another phase of the matter. Union Men May Seo Trouble One thing is sure the railroad lalor leaders who have refused to obey the summons to appear before the la'oor board will liiid themselves jn trouble. Unless they come into session with that board they will discover that they have started something which may hurt rail road labor in the end. Mr. Harding would not hesitate to compel obedience bv means of general statutes regarding the interruption of interstate commc-n-e and hints of "dras tic action" have been heard in oflirial quarters. But the danger to the cause of the railway unions is the prospect -of forcing action by congress to prohibit railway strikes and making it unlawful conspiracy for leaders to incite men to stop work on the ration's transporta tion system. Should a crisis develop such a' plea to congress for -'Mini legis lation would become inevitable. The president knows of course that the men who will strike are too few in number to tie up the country's railroads but the question is whether he can af ford to l't he decisions of the United States railroad labor board go unheeded. If he does, the railroad executives will be likely to follow the precedent. They too, have tried to evade the decisions of the board but invariably have been brought into line bv a show of govern ment authority or through the medium of legal advisers who have seen that it was unwise to fight the government. A Critical Situation It is a critical moment atrain in tin life of the labor board. The episode last autumn is not comparable to the 'resent controversy for now a decision has lnen rendered ami the railway em ployes don't like it and are striking rather than accept it. Jf the govern ment backs down and lets the Ktrike go on in defiance of the labor board, the usefulness of- that ' --'v will be seri ously questioned. Mr. Harding feels that the lalxr board is the result of elalnTate judgment of congress,, and that comrress wanted to set up a b'wlv with suflieient moral power to prevent strikes and if that failed inore drastic powers would hi' invoked either through interpretations of existing broad genera! laws tn the question of interstate coin merce or bv- a?kinir congress to put teeth in the. transportation act.
