PACT TWO BLYTJIEVILLE (AUK,) COUIUEU NEWS TUESDAY, APRIL 26, 1949 THE NATION TODAY Long-Delayed Debate on Labor Bill to Replace Jail-Hartley Act Gets Under Way in Washington By James Marlow W^BHINGTON, April 2«. (fry— rhe iong-derayed debate In Congress on a new labor l»\p starts today fn the House. After the House finishes, tlic Senate tackles the problem, So U may be weeks before we finally have a new labor law. The House faces two problems In* — making a decision and so will the Senate: 1. Should the Taft-Hartley act, passed In 1947, be wiped out and replaced by the old Wagner act, ' passed In 1935, with some slight changes? . 3. Or should the Tart-Hartley act be kept pretty much as it is, with some slight changes? The House has two bills before It: " 1. The Lesinskl bill. This bears the name of Rep. Lesinskl. Michigan Democrat. This is the bill favored by President Truman unci organized "labor. It would knock Ihc T-H net and. with a Jew changes restore the old Wagner act which was the law from 1935 to 1947. 2. The Wood bill. This is sponsored by Rep. Wood, Georgia Dcm- ocrat, It is backed by Republican leaders in the House and group of Southern Democrats. Labor Opposes Wood Bill The Wood bill says it would repeal the T-H act but it Is pretty nmch like the T-H net in ninny ways. Organized labor says It i the T-H act under another name Because House members can tack amendments, or changes, on th labor bill right on the floor of th House, no one can predict wha the bill, as finally passed by Hi House, will look like. House action, although debate . limited In the House, probably w" use up this whole week. Then it may be weeks before th Senate acts. And. since the Senat debate is unlimited, it may be more weeks before the Senate finally decides what kind of labor bill H So, the bills passed by the House and Senate probably will be different. If they are, both houses will have to agree on a single bill acceptable to both. Even then the bill can't become law unless Mr. Truman signs it or, If he vetoes It, both houses re- pass It over his veto with a two- thirds vote. And. just as no one can say what kind of bill Congress will pass, no one can say what Mr. Truman will do it he doesn't like the bill. He and his Democrats promised last year that, if they won the election and control of Congress, they'd wipe out the T-H act, which the Republican-controlled congress pas- jed In 1947. Lmbor Mad at GOP Organized Itibor. fighting m«d a the Republicans for the T-H acl supported Mr. Truman's campaign And part of his victory, at least was due to labor's support. The Democrats won, got contro of Congress, and began hearing n a new bill to replace the T-H ct. Those hearing went on for ceks in the first part of this ear. And the labor committees in House nd Senate, where Democrats out- umber the Republicans, came out ,1th a bill which would; Wipe out T-H and brine back he old Wagner act, with some hanges. In the House this bill bore lie name ol Leaiaskl, chairman of he House Labor Committee. In the Senate the same kind of bill bort he name of Senator Elbert Thonins Utah Democrat, chairman ot tin Senate labor Committee. But as the weeks passed tin srowls by Republicans and South crn Democrats grew louder agalns the Thomas-Leslnskl bill. And fin lly the Wood bill appeared. Tlv ground is ready for the battle.
