PAGE POUR HOPE STAR, HOPE, Bruce Catton Says: A. I'. of L. Fights to Upset U. S. Building Trades Probe By BRUCE CATTON NEA Washington Correspondent . WASHINGTON - One of the houLt pre£u?ecan ^igns o( rcccnt is being ,taeed here to get the Justice Department (V soft-pedal ^U trust drive against building trades unions. ^ The campaign came out into the light ojf publicity the other day when high executives of the American Federation of Labor visited President Roosevelt and Attorney General Murphy to try to get the drive shunted aside. Under the surface it has been going on with even greater vigor and determination. Much of the pressure is coming from Capitol Hill, where the A. F. of L. mtmbers many friends among congressmen and senators; lawmaker have been railing the Department of Justice on the phone, or going clown in person, to urge that the heat be taken off of the building trades. "Stop Scoring our Boys" What has stirred Federation leaders and their friends, is not the set of indictments obtained from a District of Columbia grand jury against five union officials; it is the fact that the anti-trust division is proceeding in 15 other cities, calling union officials in for questioning and, as one leader expresses ((.'"scaring our boys so that the unions can't operate.'' They are urging that the department confine its efforts to the Washington situation, making a test case out of it and discontinuing proceedings elsewhere. The Department of Justice, however, is supporting Assistant Attorney General Thurman Arnold in his policy of forgetting about test cases and going ahead all along the line and all across the country. Smiles for the C. I. O. Meanwhile, a little counterpressure is beginning to develop. For if the Federation is highly disturbed by the inquiry into building trades union practices, the C. I. O. is highly pleased. Last spring it announced its own plans to unionize the building trades, setting up the United Construction Workers Organizing Committee to do that job. If Mr. Arnold's energetic staff should disrupt the tightly-organized A. F. of L. unions this organizing committee's job would be just that much easier. So the C. I. O. is all for continuance of the anti-trust drive. An extremely interesting point in that connection is the fact that Daniel Tobin. head of the powerful A. F. of L. Teamsters' Union has been one of the most ardent workers for peace with the C. I. O. in the A. F. of L. high command. Yet Tobin's is one of the unions which is feeling the force of Mr. Arnolds drive the most. lilt Them Where They Feel it Another interesting point is the fact that Mr, Arnold must presently ask Congress for more money. It is rumored on the hill" that even before the present special session ends the Justice Department will ask authorization to spend money already appropriated, ahead of (he budget- in other words, to use in December money which is scheduled to be spent in March. There are two ways to choke off a government department or agency when it is up to something you don't like. One is to get the executive— the President or the department head —to call off the dogs. The other is to cut down on appropriations in Congress. The first method having failed in this case, the second on will undoubtedly be tried. The A. F. of L.. as was said before, has many friends on Capitol Hill. Consequently there is likely to be a good deal of opposition the next time a plea for money for the antitrust division is made.

Columbia's "Five Little Peppers and How They Grew" will open at the Saenger Theatre on Wednesday Heading the cast of the film version of Margaret Sidney's famous childhood classic is Edith Fellows, whose "Polly Pepper" stirs many nostalgic memories of the days when 'Polly" was the herione of every juvenile reader. Throughout the years the Pepper fiction family has been the favorite of young Americans. Now for the first time, they appear, on the screen to make thousands of new friends and to renew acquaintance with the millions that already know and love them. Charles Barton, the director, has transferred the family to- the screen with careful fidelity and the cast of talented juveniles in the film are said to be the exact, lovable characters of the Pepper series. Tommy Bond. Charles PeckC Jimmy Leake and four-year-old Dorothy Anne Seese hsve all been praised for their accurate portrayals of the Pepper brood who are so ably "mothered" by the diminutive Miss Fellows. The only adult roles in the film are filled by Dorothy Peterson who is seen as the devoted Mother Pepper and Clarence Koib as the stern financier, Mr. King whose heart is melted by the merry antics of the irrepressible Pepper quintet.
