Labor, to Progress Musi Clean House Some sor( of showdown in Hie !iolil of labor relations seems just ahead. The National Recovery Administration prepares to tackle the company union issue, Conuro*s debates the Wagner labor bowi'd bill, mid iiulustrialisls flock to Washintrton to protest both measures. And the whole business inits upon organized labor the heaviest rc.s[xjnsi- bility it lias had in years. Organized labor, unless all signs fail, is about to be given more power than it ever has had before. Us Jlagna Chart n is in the making these days. What is it going to do with it? » * •» it is not exactly a secret that there are labor organizations whose officials are more interested in lining I heir own pockets than in advancing the cimsu of the men they are supposed lo represent; that there are' eases in which labor unions have been turned into unscrupulous nickels by designing men; that selfishness, gieeil, and stupidity have in some instances given both employers and employees i'c;i- son to distrust tho labor organizer. Such things do more to retard the cause of labor than all the hard-boiled employers in the country. Unless they can be^eluninated, the current drive to give "tabor "a"new freedom cannot, in the long run, do labor any good. They are evils ,lhat can be corrected by nobody but the leaders and the rank and tile of organized labor. * » > It often is said that public office is a public trust. The same tiling 1 applies to the job of representing organ. ized workingmen. The man who has such a jiosition not only speak,} for the legitimate aspirations of his fellow workers; lie also occupies an exceedingly imporl-- iint position in the industrial setup of the country as a whole, and this position evidently is going to be more important in the future than in the past. The intelligent and honorable labor leader—and there are many such— can do a great work in the years just ahead of us. But the labor movement no longer can afford to carry the racketeer, the self-seeker, the chiseler. the man who OUT OUR WAY plays both cntlx aumnsi, I In.- miildlu for llii! sake of Ills own hanli iia'uunl. It's up to labor to clciin housi;. If the unions arc to net new ritflils, they must recognize tlie rus|)onsil;i]ilie.s that go with them, f'ultiiii.
