(UP)—Tho National Labor Delations Board today onlcvud tlio Ford Motor Company lo re-nislatc 9<l employes wild back pay since llio fall of iim ul its St. Louis, Mo., assembly plnnl. The board ordered the company* : to grant exclusive bargaining _. ruture: Marriage, Not Deportation rights for approximately 840 em- ployes in Ihe plant lo the c. 1. O. faclion of Ihe United Automobile Workers of America, and to refuse recognition lo the St. Louis division of the Liberty Legion of America. Inc. The board said (lint the company had undertaken an "active and open campaign to crush" (lie U. A. W. after distributing through all its employes a pamphlet criti- ci/lng unions which represented Henry Ford's "viewpoint on Inljor." The board overruled the company's contention that distribution of the pamphlet was an exercise of Its right to free speech. Discussing the free speech controversy, the board saiu: "The respondent's righl to freedom of speech and of press does not sanction its use of speech or press as n means of employing its economic superiority to Interfere with, restrain or coerce its em- ployes In the exercise of the right guaranteed by the act. By ils dis- trlbiilion of the 'viewpoint on labor' lo the plant employes the respondent was not addressing . . . an argument to the intellect of its employes which they were free (0 accept or reject without compulsion. . . "On the contrary it was issuing a stern warning that it was bil- terly opposed to the union and that it would throw the weight of its economic power against Ihe efforts of ils employes to form or carry on such an organization."

The Germans are attempting to link their forces at Oslo with those at TroiKlhchn, and the allies arc trying to prevent that linking— each striving to get there fastest. This is advance guard warfare. It was n British advance guard that a German advance guard, evidently stronger, drove back at Slcinkjer. American troops no more experienced suffered losses similar to those reported and kept going. In fact, American experience should shed light on why the British sent such Iroops lo Norway.

Anyway, the British troops were hurried aboard and sent off without anti-aircraft guns. They received no support from fighter planes.
