WEDNESDAY, MAY 1, Would Organize Southern Labor Onion Affiliation For Textile Workers j- Is Called Imperative ', WASHINGTON. May 1 iut>> — Prank Fenton. Director of Organ- izatlon for the American Federal- JOM of Labor, told textile workers Tuesday that unless the South Is thoroughly organized "we'll j;o back further than we have in a IOIIK time." Fenton, echoing arguments that APb President William Green advanced Monday, urged the Unitc'l Textile Workers of America (AFL) to fight the "Communist" CIO in organizing the southern slates. Fenton to!cl the UTW convention that there are GOO.OOo textile workers still unorganized in'the South. "The textile union will have the greatest, obligation and the grcatcsl work to do in the southern drive. Unless we organize thoroughly and recognize the problems facing us, we'll go bask further tlnin we have in a long time," Fenton asserted. "II the AFL members all over the country will participate in ihe political life of the nation, they can prevent this situation." Fenton criticized the administration's policy on wages. He said Ihe workers pf America were getting "a poor reward for their production (luring the war." "We were iusked to stabilize." he continued. "We did that, only !o get lower wages and it looks now as though we'll actually eel in- flatioin." Fenton .said that Sidney Hillninn spent $1,500,000 trying to gel the AFL textile workers into the CIO before the war. No matter what the CIO spends," Fenton proclaimed, '"The AFL will get the membership of the Southern workers." Fenton said that the aniiounce- incuts of the CIO in the southern drive indicated they "didn't knoiv what to do." He "said the AFL knows the problems of ihe South and is therefore better qualified to represent them. He said the AFL was gci^g to send "a tremendous number of organizers" lo assist the 4,000 local unions in the organization drive. "But we arc going to use -soulh- ern organizers who undersland the sccial, economic and religious baek-- pround of the southern workers," Fenton continued. He said the AFL has 1,800,000 members in the U southern states. Fenton summed np the AFL policy in the southern drive with this statement: "We are going down there because we believe it is time we meet courageously l£ic challenge of totalitarian Communist propaganda of ttie CIO.
