WEDNESDAY, JUNK 29 BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE I THE NATION TODAY Democrats in Congress Unable To Deliver on Promise Made to Labor to Kill Taft-Harttey Act WASHINGTON, June 39 WJ— Don't bet on what'a going to happen to the Tall-Hartley labor act In Congresa. That'i because things are scrambled there, where the Democrats are supposed to be in control because they have a majority, It's a rickety kind of control, as this will show. For a minute, Just fevlew a little history so that what's happening will be clear. ^ In 1935, when the Democrats had a majority in Congress and were really able to run the show, they passed the Wagner labor act. (The father of It was Robert F.+Wagner, New York Democrat who resigned from the Senate yesterday after 22'^ years there.) The Wagner act compelled a boss to bargain with a union representing; his employes. It put no restrictions on a union. Employers, who looked on this * a one-sided law, never got used to It. But is stayed on the books until 1947. In that year the Republicans got control of Congress with a majority and promptly tackled the Wagner act. They replaced it with the Taft- Kartley act. Now it v.'as the turn of the unions to scream because: While T-H put a few more restrictions on employers it put more restrictions on unions than they ever had be/ore in their long history. That was one of thR bis talking points for President Truman and his Democrats in last fall's elections. Promises Not Fulfilled They promised, backed by labor, that (f they won control of Congress they'd wipe out T-H and restore the old Wagner act. They won. So they started this 8Ist Con- firess in January with a majority, sid more promises of knocking T-H nto the bleachers. Hearings on a new labor bill went on for months. Finally the House, where the Demo era Is have & majority, ' ailed it up for action. But the Democrats—particularly the Southern Democrats—were not all willing to tag along with Mr. Truman's champaign promises. This wajs duck soup for the Republicans who wanted to keep TH. or as much' of it as they could, So the Truman Democrats weren't able to ram through the old Wagner act in place of T-H. Finally. . . . The bill was sent back to the House Labor Cimmittee lor further study. This prevented a final vote on the floor. And most times when n hill is called up on the floor, as this was, and then goes back to committee, that just about kills it for the rest of the year. At last. ,a couple of weeks ago, the Senate, where the Demos rats also have a majority, called up the lr.bor bill for action The Truman Democrats haven't been.,doing so well there either. For they always lack control when the Southern Democrats shift over to join hands with the Republicans. Southerners In (h« Saddle They've done that in the pinches, so the Southern Democrats Republicans gradually art shaping the kind of labor hill they want, not the kind the Truman- Ite.s promised. But— Maybe the Senate won't pass this . bill in the end. Maybe, it, too will Bend the whole business back lo committee. If so. that will kill any chance of a new labor law this session. Why should that happen? For one thing, the Republicans might vote for dom? that, tine* they want T-H to stand on the books anyway. And it will stand, If no new law la passed to change it. And the Trumanites might be willing to do that, also, since a new law anything like T-H would be a defeat for them. If they could put the whole business in mothballs now, they might be able to try again to get what they want next year. If they failed In that, they could make It a campaign Issue in the 1950 elections. Even If the Senate passes n bill it can't ,ccome law unless the House also approves and the president signs it. There's no assurance the House will resurrect the bill which it already has buried in its own committee. But— If (i olh houses should agree on a bill, and it looks anything like T-H. President Truman almost certainly will veto it. That would kill it unless both houses could re-pass it by a whopping two-thirds vote.
