Hope Star CIO Conciliatory Toward AFL Offer of Laborite Peace Possibility of United Front Appears in Ranks of Labor AFL MOVES FIRST Suggests Parley, and CIO Offers to Meet at Washington ATLANTIC CITY, N. J.—</TV-The Cornmitttc for Industrial Organisation (CIO) proposed Friday to the American Federation of Lul>or that committees from both organizations meet to consider further possibility of peace conferences. It was suggested that a preliminary meeting be held at Washington the week of October 25. "Hits Possibilities" DENVER. Colo.—WV—George Har- rLson, chairman of (he American Federation of Labor's pence committee, said Friday that the ClO's latest peace proposal looked like it had possibilities. API, Makes First Move. DENVER, Colo.—</[')—The American Federation of Labor sent a new [>eace proposal to the C. I. O. Thursday in response to the offer John L. Lewis sent here Tuesday. The proposal \vns new in that the federation agreed to enlarge to a "resonable" size the Executive Council's three-mnn standing Peace Committee. Otherwise, it was no different from the pf-fer .the,federation .has stood by since it suspended 10 leading C. I. O. unions for "insurrection" more than a year ago. It called for* committees from the two camps to meet "without conditions or stipulations" to work out a .settlement. Lewis' offer stipulated that the A, F. of L. recognize the principle of the industrial form of Inbor organization for mass production industries, and proposed that each side send 100 men to the pence conference. The A. F. of L. convention unanimously elected Green to his thirteenth term as president. In accepting the post. Green adopted the most conciliatory tone he has used for weeks in discussing the C. I. O. issue. "I hope and trust and pray we may become united," ho said. "United we ore invincible." It is designc dlo help the tenant class of farmers gel in conidtion to qualify as self-sustaining farm operators and future landowners. Sixty- five per cent of the farm operators of Hemjislcad are tenants, Mr. Wade continued. The speaker told his audience that the government deals exclusively with the low-income bracket of tenants. It concerns itself only with those who miiko successful proof that they arc unable to obtain private credit from any source. The Procedure The procedure then is this, Mr. Wade explained: 1. Application is made for n Farm Security loan, backed by three references. 2. The application is acted upon by the county committee of four, who investigate the references. 3. The application is then reviewed by the state committee and its district supervisors. •1. The tenant is compelled to obtain n contract for a definite piece of land for a definite time. 5. The Farm Security Administration then works out a farm and home program, contract for which must be signed by both the farmer and his wife. 6. A loan then is granted—p "character loan," which, however, takes the farmer's individual livestock, tools nnd household furnishings also as collateral. 7. As n part of the contract the farmer and his wife guarantee to put up 140 cans of food per person per I year. 8. A long-term repayment plan recovers the government's money as the farmer progresses—and the government is "coming out" on its loans, Mr, Wade concluded. The speaker was introduced by Craig Rosborough Friday non. Other guests were: Clifford L Smith of Hope, new Hempstead county farm agent; Bill Boney of Stamps; Jim Weisiaer of Little Rock^* Hie ftevTTomBrewstcr presided«. at, Friday's club meeting.
