SATURDAY, MAY 14,1949 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PACK THRKE THE NATION TODAT Big, Bad, Bold and Blustering Lewis Embarks on New Venture As Quiet, Meek Miners' Leader -u v By James Martow * WASHINGTON, May 14. (IP)— John L. Lewis, whose scowl and lactics may have made him seem sort of set In his ways. Isn't too old to learn. At 69 lie's trying something new: a smoother way of getting along with the public and the coal mine owners, Ills old antagonists. Lewis has been a famous leader at least 3D years. He's moved fron strike and crisis to crisis in Ihe coal' fields. He has roared at and denounced—roundly, publicly and loudly—th mine owners with whom he's had to bargain for his miners. And year by, whether or* not you liked his tactics, he's won Honor Students at Wilson new and greater benefits for them. But there's always been a question in people's minds: Could he have done the same for Ills miners without the great strikes that cost the nation coal, the owners profits, and the rimers wages? \Yllllng to j/earn The question nevqS^wiU be answered, of course. buU'JiswU 1 tactics have won him a lot jjl public criticism. „ Maybe the bad reviews he's been Betting In recent years every time he has come thundering into public view have disturbed him. At any rate, he's not so set his ways that he's not willing to learn something new. And he's will- IIIT to pay to learn. On bis payroll now he has Allied J^udkates. Inc.. to help him out 1 flR his public relations. . ' And a friend of lons-standinff, : George Creel, who headed Woodrow Wilson's committee on public information In World War I. has , slipped Into town for a month to give Lewis a hand. Crell at 73 Is four years older than Lewis. He's an old-time newspaperman, author and magmine writer. ! And lie feels this way about labor ' in^na^enieiit relations: If libor and management are ' IIIE to do decent, bargaining when they sit down together, it's a good Idea for them not to build up Ill- will beforehand by name-calling. Xnw It is Different This week Lewis' nublicity firm Allied Syndicates. Inc., got out 5 1 2-page sketch of Lewis. You can be sure it's favorable to him. It pictures him as a pretty genial man. which he probably is in spite of the times he's roared and scowled. It says: "In private life. Mr. Lewis is by •no means the 'sniff sowpwss* that many cartoonists and writers have endeavored to depict. He b one of the most affable, bis-hearted men •*i the American .scene." " And tomorrow Creel will distribute a renort on the miners' health and welfare fund which Lewis won frnm the mine owners. Trusting Creel. Lewis had many times !w*c<l him to come work with him a bit. . But some time ago Creel got sick in China, went to Baltimore for treatment, and stopped off here month on his -way back to California to help his friend. Lewis. In the past few years Lewis has been exnlosive, has called biz strikes, has been fined for con tempi of court, and has gone roaring on hi= way. Now suddenly—probably untie the soft-stroking of his piibliclts advisers—his mood and approacl feem to have changed, and soften ed. , , In other springtimes when m contract with the mine owners wa coming to an end, Lewis rumblei and hit the war drums. Tills year it was different. He ha started dealing with the owner on a new contract in a quiet an peaceful mood. But you'll have to wait to lear how long that will last if the mm owners don't see things big John way. U. S. Savings Bond Opportunity Drive To Start Monday The US.

HONG KONG. May 14. </P) — Shanghai today is a city ruled by Railroad's Business Prospects Declinina Statistician Tells ICC WASHINGTON, May 14. M>|—Th lHxuls said yesterday their prospers for business this year have alien off during the last two ionth.s.

The agency •; considering the railroads' plea for a 13 percent long-term freight rate ncrea. c .e. Dr. Parmelee said reports from 34 representative rail systems indicate that 1949 freight volume will be 10.2 percent under last year, and passenger business 12,8 percent be- the 1948 total. Future Trades Class Visits Monument Firm Twenty members of the Futuri Tradesmen group and their instructor, K G. Lewis, yesterday visited the McHaney and Sons monumen works on U.S. Highway 61, South where John C. McHaney explained operation of the busin&ss to th group.

Americans visiting Italy, whcthe tourists or business men, will nee only passports hereafter, no visa befcg required, It is announced b the Oydnia America Line. Its nearly 6,000.000 residents ale nore fearful of their trigger-happy Nationalist defenders than of the Chinese Communists prodding at Its outskirts. Harsh and bloody measures taken by the Shanghai garrison are converting from contempt to singe the feeling residents have for the men assigned to defend _that greatest Asiatic city. Military edict, enforced by arms is now the law for Shanghla. Legal lootinK by soldiers— who never were distinguished for their respecl for other people's property — no\v goes under the alias of "requisition Imr." Tlirouth a tightening censorship le garrison decides what Shans ai and the world will know abou he war and about conditions in hat city. The garrison is following unswerv uply the military patterns 'einins, Tientsin, Suchow an Nankinsr. all ot which have falle a the net's. Talk of Final Stand With "volunteer" laborers, '.h Army L c sousing out trenche erecting pillboxes, uprooting vi! ages and burning down houses o the outskirts ol the city. The military and those politic: [iernres who arc allowed to spea all prattle solemnly about a "last ditch" stand and boast that Shanghai's defenses are like Stalingrad';'. Yet probably no more than a handful of Shanghai residents believes the garrison will even try to defend the city. They expect that as the Reds appear, as many of Shanghai's remaining defenders as possible will scramble lo follow those who already have departed. The defense thus far has riot qualified for any military accolade. Each time the Reds have attacked Ihe outer perimeter, the Nationalists have pulled buck. The garrison issues resounding communi- ques that detail great slaughter of the Reds— but the garrison is pulling back steadily into Shanghai. Some of the defense measure? are completely confusing. The defense works at the city limits could not withstand a determined troop of Boy Scouts.
