The Administration waited too long to pull in its horns and offer the Sims compromise bill. This bill, as Speaker Rnyburn said, was "about wind the Lesinski bill should have been in the first place."

Now how about a Wceklcss Week—a quiet time in which to catch the breath, pay the bills, and marvel anew at the persuasive powers of prcss-agentry. Taft-Hartley Law Wins Strength in Congress It'i up to the Senate now. But as far as the House ig concerned, the Taft- Hartley Act is still the labor law of the land. The Administration's compromise between brave campaign promises and practical reality came too late, and the best Mr. Truman's cohort could do was to kill the Wood bill, a sort of super- Taft-Hartley piece of legislation, and leave things as they were. The last-minute compromise was whipped up when the Lesinski bill was clearly doomed. This was 90-odd per cent Wagner Act, with a few minor changes, and at the end even its best friends didn't give it a chance. One of the most interesting things in this connection is that the Administration bill seemed to loose ground during the Easter vacation when most congressmen went back lo talk to the home folks. The constituents are pretty good lobbyists themselves, since they are the ones who keep the members in steady work. And there didn't seem to be any overwhelming evidence of a "people's mandate" to repeal the T-H legislation. Mr. Truman certainly received a "people's mandate" to go back to Washington for four more years. But it dous not appear that this mandate was a - : blanket endorsement of everything he promised in the heat of the campaign. Possibly the President, smart politician though he is, misinterpreted the people's sentiment. Possibly he was dc'".' ceived by the excitement and glow of victory which peiished from Election Day to the day that the new Congress convened. It was pretty well established, even before the election, that the intensive .'.. publicity campaign against the Talt,'K: Hartley Law was only partly successful. 'L : A great many people bristled at its very ".;'. name. But when poll-takers broke it down for them and asked them \vliat . they thought of this provision or that, S; it developed that tbe hatred for the '. whole greatly exceeded the hatred for the sum of its parts. ;;.. The Taft-Hartley Law has its imperfections and inequities. But it has .t never been the monstrous legislation of : slavery that its opponents pictured it. i;. In fact, the contrast between what tbe 5; labor people said would take place under '"" the law and what actually happened s caused their propaganda to backfire. Labor may have sustained some minor injuries, but it also made substantial gains. The hysteria of organized labor's anti-T-H campaign didn't do Mr. Truman any good in the long run, either. He took the keynote of labor's campaign " for his own. But the picture of enslaved, labor was never there to bacfc him up. The labor bill, in the light of succeeding events, obviously wasn't th« crucial VIEWS OF OTHERS A Negro Speaks Out (EDITOR'S NOTE: The following editorial appeared first in the Greenville. Miss.. Delta Leader, a newspaper published by a tit) for Negroes. It \vns reprinted In the Greenville Delia Dcmocrat- Timcs, published by Hodd.iiR Cnrtcr, winner ot a PuhUcr nwnrd for Ills own editorials. The caption is the one uj>ec| by Mr. Carter.) Senator Henry Cnbol Lodge, Jr.. R., Mass, has offered a racial rider on the $300,000,000 Federal Bid-to-educallon bill which provides that federal funds be held from any state UmL provides separate public schools for white and Negroes. Such an amendment In all probability will destroy federal aid which is so much needed at the present time to improve the educational facilities for while and colored in the South. It Is high time now lor Negroes to speak, The whites and Negroes In northern sections who have had mixed public schools all the while they can get by but. here in the South, It just won't work for decades to come and probably never. Separate, schools here in Mississippi have afforded wonderful opportunities for the development of Negroes within the Negro race. Had not it been for these separations in many fields, the Negro wouldn't have ever achieved us much as national fame, wealth and independence that he has done since his emancipation. The senators In Congress have only hcurrt the white man's side of these arguments. We have been silent and said let the white people fight It out up there, but when a question arises that Is so Important as this one, it is time for Negroes to speak. Jf this $300,000,000 grant a year become an act In Congress, poorer states like Mississippi and oilier southern states would receive as much as $29 per punll and here in the Mississippi Delta where Negroes out number whites, the Negroes would be the greatest beneficiary of this federal grant. It seems to us the senators In Congress who are so bent on anti-segregation In Hie public schools here in Ihe South should first find out U hey arc speaking" the language of the southern Jegroes. We southern Negroes don't get the point or see anything so outstanding about mixing up with white folk. What we want, if this $;iOO,000.000 jrnnt passes Congress, is to see that the money IP spent where it Is most needed and without discrimination. That is actually what the majority ot Negrccs want, is the elimination of discrimination in their allocation, for Negro schools in this section and others, \ve mean, the equalizing ol funds, on per capita babis. So fnr as integration in public schools here in the South, would make u complicated and difficult for the whites and the Negroes to exist here together without I vie Lion, far worse than the South has ever seen until boih the Negro and the white man arc educated to a higher level than now exists among us. Today, we're nskiug the white and colored Tiewspapers here In Mississippi, radio program,* and other organizations who sec eye to eye with us, to put on a publicity campaign with Negroes taking the lead, asking Congress to pass iius $300,000.00 federal aid grant to education and leave off racial amendments which mean the death of the $300,000,000 federal airi tor the impro\cmcnt of our ichools, that Is so much needed. Let us clearly be understood that ihcir rsinal amendments in Congress at present, arc doing the Negroes hi the South more harm than pood. GREENVILLE. MISS., DELTA LEADER. Relations With Franco in Spain Poses Puzzles tor the Experts Sunday School Lesson By William E. Oilroy, !).!>. The account ol the "Last Judgment" in Matthew 25 Is found only n that Gospel. One cannot !>ut wonder why neither Mark, nor John, nor especially Luke, whose Gospel enter Into so much detail, efers to it. H presents some questions, also, that various commentators have sought to answer In their own way. One distinguished commentator, for Instance, says that he judgement of which Jesus spoke was to be of professed disciples only, of those who In sincerity, called Jesus "Lord," and the statement about all nations being gath- ercd for the judgement he disposes of In a way to suit his strange interpretation. However, the spectacle of all nations, and all generations of men gathered for judgement In one '.'me and place suggests such difficulties —at leaf.1 to materialistic mind— that one might question with what materialistic literalism the passage is to true he taken. This is especially it appears in a chapter Bv IVWlt MacKfnule AP Foreign Affairs Analyst You would think that after fol lowing diplomacy's devious path for more than a generation, be.! at home and abroad, one would come accustomed to diplomatic idiosyncrasies—but your reporter still encounters difficulties. Take, for instance, the rase of Spain, which Is under :< totalitarian dictatorship of the fascist brand, headed by Generalissimo Franco. The story runs like this: Just over two years ago the United Nations denounced this Spanish government and called on members of the peace organization to withdraw their diplomatic heads from Madrid. Some nations, including the United Slates, Britain and France, recalled their ambassadors. Others stood pat. The other day the political committee of the U. N. General Assembly adopted a resolution to change the status of the black-list. Members would be Riven lull freedom as regards their diplomatic relations with Madrid. This is despite the fact that there has been no change in the form of Fiance's regime. Tliat brings us up to May 3 when the U. S.
