Ss f 6-A1cjono (lo.) Upptr De* Mdtnii Thurtdoy, Sftpt. 3, 195$ JOBS GOING OVERSEAS Right of the moment we have no serious Unemployment in this country. But what is happening in many lines of In* dustry is something 'which labor should take a long look at, and view with considerable thought. We refer to the "export," of jobs. More and more U.S. firms are opening plants overseas. They are beating the high cost of transportation and the high cost of labor by simply building outside the United States. « New plants have already been built by the Royal-McBee Co., Remington Rand, Underwood, National Cash Register, Frideh Inc., Burroughs, IBM, Hamilton Watch, Singer, Ford Motor, General Motors, Chrysler, General Tire, Goodrich, U.S. Rubber, H. J. Heinz, Bordon, Parke Davis Co., International Harvester, J. I. Case, John Deere, Goss Printing Press Co., Otis Elevator, Du Pont ond many others. These American billions invested overseas ore going to have a great impact on our own labor market in the near future. They enable companies to overcome tariff and quota restrictions or barriers, to ejet away from the higher wages paid in this country, and eliminate the cost of transportation which is continually going up. Labor can strike and raise coin all it wants, but the answer of many an American corporation is to go to Japan, or Europe, or South America. Labor might well think it over. * , ' * * ' BEDBUGS AID SCIENCE Until just recently, nobody has ever looked upon a bedbug with anything but horror. A bedbug has had no place on the social ladder, . nor has it usually been mentioned in "company". But out at the University of California the bedbug has come into its' own. There, thousands of the little parasites, romfortably bottled, are being used in experiments in modern genetics. They are being used to prove or disprove the belief that acquired characteristics such as an amputated leg' or addition to morphine cannot be passed on to future generations. ' The bottled bedbugs are subject to changes in their accustomed eating habits. Ordinarily, it seerrfs, a bedbug either feeds on the blood of bats, pigeons or other birds, or on human beings. However, by experiment, it is found that if a bedbug gets hungry enough' it can even acquire a taste for rabbit or chicken.' '' Just how the bedbugs inherit a new din- 'DOUBLE DIPPING' Indianola TrSbutt* «~ Of all defense contracts signed by our government during rfecent years, 95% arc negotiated rather than awarded on the basis of competitive bidding. That's what the record shows. Small wonder, then, that there is • now so much concern about the influence men in Wash" ington. But today is a different type of influence peddler than it was in the late '40's, when,the country was all agog over the disclosure of the fivc-and-ten percenters that were operating in the nation's r.-ipital. And today they operate quite a bit differently. Senator Paul Douglas of Illinois recently said that some 88 companies doing big business with the defense department carry on their payrools total of 721 retired officers of the rank of Army Colonel or Navy Captain, or higher grade. The first response to this statement of course, is tha it is pretty nice that a retiring admiral or general can get a job—sometimes paying as much as $40,000.00 a year—with a company which sells some kind of military equipment to the government. But the real question, and the one which several congressmen are, anxious to know more about, concerns, "Just what docs this retired military man do to earn his money?" As Senator Douglas said, "When companies with defense contracts hire former officers of high rank \to negoliate,..with their former fellow officers, some of whom th'ey have promoted, the potential and actual abuses are magnified." More and more the opinion seems to be mounting that the retired military man is not hired strictly because of his executive "ability and professional experience. Instead, he is'put to work as a high-class lobbyist Or inflUence-peddler, to use his old friendships and, contacts in the Pentagon for the benefit of the company which hired him. And, since many jobs are arranged 1 months before the retiring man actually leaves his job at the Pentagon, there is also the'very real possibility that many very high ranking officers might have been influenced in the selection of equipment by the prospect of going to work for that company after he retired. There has long been a feeling among 1 people interested in good government that all efforts should be made to avoid putting officials in a position where they might become exposed to a conflict of interest—where the same person might set in the position of buyer and seller. For this .reason, most all appointive officials must dispose of any interests they 'have in business or industry Editor, uppef fees The least wfc can do in *etuth is Void &* M^lfpftimt* to hear labor's ptrintlrt view with Richard p.

Congressman Coad made his position quite clear, as the editor himself quoted, when he stated that he voted for the Laiidrum- " Griffin bill "in spite of the fact that 1 felt it was not fair, to the union member who works for a living". The various Iowa Congressman who changed'their votes including Mr Coad further stated that they did so because they felt that some type of labor reform bill was, necessary & the Lundrum bill passage would keep the legislation alive in House-Senate Conference. This was reported m the national press but was, for some reason omitted m these editorials. Another point -.that- the editorial does not make, clear as . that S crucial 229-201 vote was not the Landrum-versus the Shelley Bill but was on a motion to - substitute the Landrum bill for trie Elliot bill which was the * committee reported bill.
