THURSDAY, JULY T, 1949 •LFIMEVILLE (AMLJT OOUKIEB Pegler Hits Red Control of Unions Columnist Blasts 'Dtspoto, Criminals' In Labor Groups WASHINGTON, July 7—</PJ— Columnist Westbrook Feeler said today labor unions In this country "have become Infiltrated with despots, criminals and Communists." jMiank and file members have '•Acle or no" voice in their organizations, he added. Pejler appeared t>efore a House Labor Subcommittee Investigating undemocratic practices In unions The chairman is Rep. Jacobs iLJ- lnd>, a freshman and a former Indianapolis laV»r la«yev. "The government has long duct f-d the Communist question oa unions (or political reasons," I'egla said in a itatcment tic read ti the subcommittee. "Vet we hav. union after union completely eiom inated by Communist and pro Camunists and run by them. "An instance of this, and onl one of many, is the United Elec uical workers. Not very long ag the Atomic Energy Commission lol the General Electric company no to deal with th« United Electrical i Workers because of its Red domination." Pcgter said domination of unions by the people he descrlued "did not come about by chance." he added: Lawyers Helped "It was deliberate and made legally possible by clever labur lawyers who took care to place the necessary provisions for its continuance in the constitutions of the unions." Some unions have not had conventions for over 20 years. Pegler continued, and In some the members "received a. HiUerinn "J" bal- I .Jst" to vote for only one set of •bldidates for union offices. ' "''"'"I hive received hundreds at letters from rank and file members who have been kicked out of the union* .lost their jobs or threatened physically because they attempted to reform the unions," he said "One such citizen was murdered." Pegler said "millions upon millions of dollars" are in union treasuries and may be 'spent for any' purpose the unions' bosses choose." "It is not their money, out they can spend it without any knowledge of or permission from the men who paid it into their treasuries," he testified. Before taking the witness stand, Ptgler said Jacob* "must be. kidding himself or trying to kid the public." "We are after facts," Jacobs said in «n interview yesterday, "and Mr. Pegler says he has facts. I ran assure him the undivided attention of the committee."
