FRIDAY, JULY 1, 1949 BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE THE NATION TODAY Truman Democrats Lose Hope Of Repealing Taft-Hartley Act | During Congress' 87st Session By Jime* Mario* WASHINGTON, July 1 W>—The Tail-Hartley labor act looks certain to sUy unchanged for at least another year. Th« Truman Democrats have vowed to destroy that act. Things lave gone » badly Jor them they'll consider it a kind of victory now to jBrThey lost their last hope of killing T-H yesterday when the Senate Mised a new labor bill closely resembling the present law. This was put over by the Republicans and Southern Democrats who, >y Joining forces, outnumbered the Truman Democrats. The next move li up to the House. There can be no new labor law it all unless both Houses approve a bill. So the Trumanites have these* CARUTHERSVILLE NEWS By John Bay Theft Suspects Are Arraigned; Held tor Trial naves open to them: Their leadens In the House can U-y to block any labor bill from 3eing voted on at all. Or, If they couldn't block a vote, :hey could try to get the House to pass a bill, an antl-T-H bill, completely different from the Senate's. That in Itself would prevent any lew labor law this session, for > simple reason: It wouldn't get past the Senate. (When both houses pass differ«.U bills on the same subject, ! iliere can be no new law unless they compromise their differences nd agree on one bill.) But the Truman Democrats the House might lose control there they did in the Senate, to Re- I publicans and Southern Democrats That happened when the" House took up a labor bill earlier this year—and It very nearly passed one much like Tan-Hartley. If the House were to pass such a bil on a second tvy it probably would have no trouble Ironing out differences with the Senate and agreeing on one bill. President May Be Final Factor ,'fcput that agreed-upon bill still ' luAildn't become law unless the President signed it. And Mr. Truman probably would veto it, and make his veto stick, (or a simple reason: The Senate vote yesterday was 61 to 42, a long way from the two-thirds of the 96 senators necessary to re-pass a bill over a veto. So, In the end. the decision of killing » new labor law—or of okaying one that resembles T-H— may be up to Mr. Truman.

Read Courier News Want Ads But why would the Trumanites rather let T-H stand as Is than let a new law, thBt looks like T-H but is slightly milder, get on the books? For several reasons: The Trumanites promised to wipe out T-H. Letting that law be replaced by one resembling it could hardly—In the eyes of organized labor—be considered keeping promise. Political Fuel for 1950 Yet, the Trumanites owe a debt to labor which helped elect them on their promise of getting rid of T-H. And the Trumanites wil need the support of labor In future elections. So, if the present law is allowec to stand—Instead of a new law much like It—the Trumanites could ursue: ; promised, but the Republicans nd Southern Democrats teamed up against us. We tried to make good. Blame them. We wouldn't settle for anything that looked !'"•» T-H. We still want to keep our promises. We'll try It again at our next session in 1950. If we don't win then, we'll make'a campaign issue of it in the 1950 elections and ask organized labor to help us elect so many Trumantles that we can put a new labor law In. So—this topsy-turvy scramble over a new labor law today may become one of the big Issues in the 1950 elections. The Republicans and Southern Democrats, of course, can argue on their side that they made real changes in T-H, 28 in fact, and that the Trumanites were the ones responsible for keeping T-H.
