LOOKING AHEM .»»«0«Olt« N |ON TEAM WORK Whom docs your representative represent? Thli is a fair and timely Question, moreover, ;iol as silly r.s it sounds. He Is supposed-to icprcscnt you nml n few thousand other people In your county nnd nearby counties, but docs he do it? if so, how c'.ies he go about it? How does he know what the people who elect him think-, about questions he must help decide? Of course congressmen all have plenty or people to tell them what to c!o, Whenever a congressman Is appointed to an important committee-, he can be sure of one thing: a line will fmin to Ihe left outside his door; people waiting lo tell him which side of his braid Is buttered, show him very .. statistics, trout „„„,„words In his ears and shcdl tears on his desk. Welcome Cullers Such lines are made up of miscellaneous people, very much like llne.s Hint form In cafeterias or at ticket-office windows; .usually nobody is there you know or really want lo see. But when the unusual .occurs; when somebody A from back home falls in Hue at a congressman's door, he eels admitted to Ihe representative's own private office. Why? The congressman wants to sec him. .; - • JD50H IN WASHINGTON Steel Ruling Favors CIO BV PKTER IJDSON' Courier News \s'ashln|jlon Corrcsjiondciil EffeH of the National War Labor lionrd's recent decision in (he so- wllcd nig Steel wage adjustment cfiEe Is to leave the C. I. O. unions in 11 decidedly advantageous position over the A. P. of L. While the C. I. o. Steclworkcrs did not get their demand for a 17 tents an hour wage Increase, Ihcy at least, had some of their demands granted and they got an equivalent of perhaps B cents an hour In awards of Increased pay for second anil third shifts, elimination of certain Inetiualties in pay rates, .liberalized vacation and holiday schedules and severaiicc pay. All these awards rame iw n result of specific demands made by the Hlcel workers. 'ei'lmps half a million workers - directly affected by these Slants, but' the Important thing to ihe C. I. O. is Hint the nig steel case, precedent was set for makin" similar grants to other C. I. O. unions which have spccllic demands in cases before the WLB. The A. F. of L., however, which had merely made a hlanket demand for breaking the U tile Steel Formula ns n means of gelling higher wage rates, got nothing out of the Big Slcel decision except iwrhaps, a vague sort of assuranra that if the A. P. of L. unions should ranks specific demands in line with Kiij Steel awards, the cases would lie considered and . in due granted. time . , The result of this apparent but certainly unintended favoritism .to the C. I. O. Is that pressure to :irc;ik the Litllc Steel Formula is l)oun ( i to be increased py the A F. of L. leadership. DETEKMINKD TO BREAK urm; STEEI nepresenliitlvcs are elccled n(id one I ever knew wanted sincerely lo do that very Ihlng. They, were smart men but there was not.. a mind reader In the bunch. They couldn't sit in Washington . and have a very good idea wlml the elector.', expected of them. The night Approach was strongly against trying to force a decision on breaking ihe Little Sled Forinufn nnd damned If lie didn't, .the. p. I. b. leadership laid off. Now, however, ft Is .prepared to lay on. There Is no Implied strike threat If favorable .action is .'not forthcoming,- but pressure for Increasing wage rates Is building up on two principal grounds: first-that the report pf the President's Cost of Living Investigating committee, admitting that living costs have risen beyond wage Increases; second, that upward adjustment 'of basic wage rales . is necessary " to stabilise income at present levels and so provide purchasing power to maintain full employment -when the war Is over. COLD TO V-E DAY RAISES To suggestions that no immediate, basic wage rate Increases be granted now, but that provision be made lor Increasing wage rates-on the day the war ends In Europe the C. 1. O. leadership is decidedly cold These suggestions have been credit ,,,, to tllc Offl<ic of Economic fatabllteillon braintrusters, but labor leaders point out that any Idea of Iryinff to increase .wages on the day. that the bottom starls to fall out of the labor market is silly. Cited as evidence of the need for increasing basic wage rates now Is a confidential study made by OPA economists, indicating that when the war ends, the drop In national income from wages will be n bil- iion dollars a year—half of IL representing -the complete disappearance of war jobs, (he other half representing the lowering of income irom wages due to the relurn of now high-paid war workers to lover-paid Jobs. In laundries, stores, domestic service or other former employment.
