L'atlon Says "Coercion" Language Includes Employers, Too ItY IliUJCi; CWTTON Courier N'cws Washington Ccrrcsiiomlcnt WASHINGTON, July 31. — The Hatch bill outlawing "pernicious political, activities," as its printed title expresses it. hns a neat surprise package in it which pvac- lically everybody overlooked while It was being passed. Its opening sentence stales that it shall be unlawful for "any per- srn" to intimidate, threaten or coerce any other person for the purpose of influencing- thai person's vole in a presidential or ccn- gresslonal election. 13ccnii.sc of its phraseology, tills —according- to. Senator Hatch, its author—applies not only to poli- tiolans, but also to employers ot labor. It means thnt any emplycr ivho threatens his workers with a shutdown if so-and-so isn't elected ts liable (.3 a $1000 fine or a year's imprisonment. Nobody paid Ihc least attention lo this while the bill was pending, although Senator Halch says he tried his best lo point cut that this paragraph was intended to apply lo employer!; as well us lo i»Ji- licians. "I Just couldn't get anybody lo listen to me," he says. "Two sena- tcire got Ihe point, and tivo corres- psndeuts — counting j-ou — have nsked me abcnl it. And some bond house in Men- York City wrote and a.sked me if (hat was what the bill meant. I wrote and told them it was, and (hey replied saying thai they were all for it."

Miller, Texas mill owner, before the Textile Industry Ccmniitto nt Atlanta early in July: Q. "Has there been any attempt to organize your employes by union representatives?" A. "Yes. They have tried in about four instances. "The C. I. O. tried to d3 it three limes, and they came "Mth- cut notice disgviised as workmen and asked for positions in the mills, but they couldn't get any signers. The A. p. of L. organizer came to my oflice and introduced himself to me and asked if I would co-operate with them in organizing the company." Mr. Miller added Hint-' he tolci this toiler gent that it was no dice and that this organizing attempt got no farther than the others had. * * J CITIES DO OWN MEDIATING The movement to settle industrial disputes through mediation rather than through strikes seems (o be growing, niitl a fair number of cities have set up local boards of conciliation and inediali-.n.

H loofe like the eve of another Indian uprising on the Wind River reservation; Targets stand in bundles near every house and flying arrows /111 the air. Cause of the excitement was an offer by Ralph Campbell, mim- ager of the annual Thcrmopolls rodeo, to provide a live bullalo for an Indian feast if Chief Ca Ha Ca Cliee and his braves would guarantee to kill the beast with a liow and arrow as a special attraction. The chief agreed and announced lie wo.nld appear in person at, the roneo grounds on Sept. 3 to kill the Iniffa.lo with a single stccl-tippcd. arrow. j The chiefs l>oast, however, drew fire from residents or Thermopolis who argued the modern Indian was too "sissiflcd" lo kill a bulialo with an arrow like his ancestors did. "The townspeople think the Indians have gone soft," Campbell said. "I've received a lot of protest letters from people who picture the animal running around bristling with arrows and finally being-shot down by a white man to end its misery." Campbell said one woman wrote that she would not permit her children to witness such "brutal butch- cry.'' . I "Kill the buffalo with a bullet I first," she advised. "Then let the Indians cook it. They should .still be able to do that." Chief Co Ha (One Shot) Ca Chee snorted derision at the protests. "My tribe is civilized." he said. "We wear pants and some of us have beeii'to college. But we're still Indians arid «'e stil can use a bow." Townspeople noted, however, that, the entire tribe was practicing areherj' and would stand by on Sept. 3 with bows ready in case One Shot Ca Chee missed.
