THURSDAY, JAN.' 8, 1953 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.). COURIER NEWS PAGE SEVEN House Labor Chairman Favors Several Methods In Dealing with Strikes By NORMAN WALKER WASHINGTON OB — Rep. McConnell (R-Pa) said loday he favors legislating a variety of alternative methods for dealing with national emergency strikes to make it easier to deal with them. The new chairman of the HoUse Labor Committee said in an interview that if unions and management are kept guessing over which technique might be employed by the government, that in itself would spur the parties to greater effort lowcrd a settlement. "If they don't know what might happen to them, lucres more of a tendency for them to settle their own troubles, McConnell said. . "I think the idea is fundamentally sound. No one yet has come up with a sure answer to handling these big strikes. And I think we should encourage the participants of these labor-management disputes to try to work out their own problems wherever possible. "Leaving the situation flexible to meet the varying conditions of each case would provide more leeway for (he interplay of human relations and might thus bring on more settlements and fewer strikes. A Lot of Ideas McConnell, eight years a House member, said he has a lot of ideas for rewriting the nations basif labor laws. But he said he hesitate* to express' them until his committee is fully organized and Bets down to work. Hearings on suggested changes to the Taft-Hartley law are tenta- lively set In both the Senate and House In early February. Sen. Taft (R-Ohlo) has said they will be "wide open. McConnell said the House hearings may last several monlhs, in a'thorough ailing of the whole problem. The House committee chairman said he favors retaining the cilirl injunction method, perhaps modified somewhat from the present provision in lha Tatt-Hariley Act, is one of 'the "tools" available to he President to handle the big, extraordinary strikes. But an Injunction may be unnecessary in many cases, he said. The law might also let. the President name a board of inquiry to recommend a settlement. Or the Chief Executive might ask Congress immediately for legislation to dea specifically with a threatened strike. McConnell indicated he was op posed to authorizing government seizure of strike-bound facilities. I Congress enacts such a law, he said, II should be separate fron the baste labor law.
