WITH STRAIGHT FACE -May Support Nixon in '72, Says Meany MIAMI BEACH. Fla. (/Pi -- AFL-C10 President .-George Meany, who led labor's all-out political fight . against the election of President Nixon, said Monday, "I "may evert support Nixon in 1971." ·'. "It all depends on what happens," said Meany. His 13.6 million-member labor federation spent millions of ."dollars supporting Democrat Hubert H. Humphrey's ' losing presidential campaign against Nixon. Meany's comment at a news conference followed a - scries of cautiously-friendly messages Nixon has sent to · -labor leaders during their meetings here the last two weeks. '"' _.'. Ihe .(|ue;-lion of I!I72 presidential candidates came up a f t e r Sen. I'dimmd Muskie, D-Maine, who was Humphrey's vice presidential running made, talked m i he AFL-ClO's executive council in closed session. "He discussed some problems his party faces which were, quite interesting, but hardly our business, and expressed thanks for our support during the campaign," Meany said. + + 4 * WOULD Muskie make a good presidential candidate in 1972? Meany was asked. "I'm sure he would, along with others," said the 7'!-year-old "Mr. Labor." But he wouldn't be drawn into supporting Muskie nearly four years in advance of Ihe next presidential election. "1 may even support Nixon in 1971," Meany said, "li all depends on what happens." While sonic observers viewed Meany's comment as tonpie-in-cher-k. he did not crack a smile. Olhcr labor sources called HIE remark "politically s i g n i f i c a n t . " A number of labor leaders have long erilirij'.cd the AKL-ClO's almost automatic support of Meinocrais at t h e n a t i o n a l level, and Meany could .-.imply have, been keeping the politically-powerful lcderalion\ opiums open.
