WEDNESDAY, JULY 27, I'M!) BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NTWB PAQB Curbs on Labor May Be Needed Former Trust Buster For New Deal Goes Before Senators. WASHINGTON, July 27—(/!>j— Former trust-busier Thurman Arnold declare^ yesterday it is a "very dangerous tiling" to permit lal>or unions to monopolize! the labor 5Urt»" without "curbs whatsoever. Ire urged that Congress lake steps to bring unions under the anti-trust statutes and let the courts decide the issties of each case. Arnold, head of Use Justice Department's anti-trust division during the "New Deal" days and now in private practice in Washington, outlined h's views to the Senate Banking committee. The committee, at the request of Senator Robert-son (D-Va) is looking primarily at the operations of the coal industry and the activities of John L- Lewis' United Mine Workers. The miner chieftain last June 30 declared a three-day work week for the coal fields which Robertson has called a "bold and over act" lo fix prices and restrict production. Arnold said the three-day week was called to create a situation o: coal scarcity to place the union in n more favorable position "in the next strike." Arnold con tended that if thc anli-trusl laws are lef( unchanged it would be an easy mailer for unions and management to Ktt together and "do the very things which the anti-trust laws forbid." He argued there Is (1) general acceptance of the riifht of unions to "monopolize" the labor supply and (2) that the Supreme Court in several cases for practical pur- POKOS except ed unions from thc ai'^ferusfc laws. ^lereEore, he said, all that would be necessary to fix prices and restrict production without violation of the present laws would be to Rcl the union to "initiate" the move, and the employers to "give in." Leading coal operators testified they wanted no part of the three- day week, and that it had been "imposed" upon them. Arnold cautioned that wage$ and hours could be used as a "guise" of legitimate purpose when a union is actually after something else. He urged that courts be allowed discretion to determine the true Issues in each case. In the "illegitimate" field of union activity Arnold would have the bill seek to prevent (A) strikes to prevent "outside goods" from NKGKO COTTAGE tillllNS IN I-'U>KII>A—Hume of Henry Shepherd burns at Sluckey, near Groveland F)a., as mob of armed men rode shooting through Negro community.
