Lewis Once Led Split in Labor But Now Calls For Unification By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON W — John L Lewis's Labor Day message other labor organizations is tha In the picture at the top of Sun •day's front-page, Mrs.' George Me Caffrey was on the the left an Mrs. William Bodner was on th right We were keeping it a sec ret. Out of the welter of confusion surrounding the telephone poles in the middle of the sidewalk a the Anthony School comes a promise that they will be removed Of the three or four agents i n volved with the poles or the sidewalks, all say: "Well, it may have been our man's fault, but..." I sounds like a general jnisunder standing of position, curb lines, in tentions and expansions. Anyhow the poles will be removed, and thi kids can bring their skates. they may be destroyed if they don't unite. But such labor unity isn't likely in the near future for a couple of obvious reason: 1. Union leaders themselves. 2. There is no immediate peri] to organized labor. This isn't the first suggestion of its kind from the one-time rampaging Lewis who may be mellowing in his later years. It was Lewis who led the CIO out of the AFL and later led his own United Mine Workers out of the CIO. While Lewis is considered a fairly strong willed man, the other big union leaders, William Green of the AFL, and Philip Murray of the CIO have displayed wills of their own, too. So the first question in any effort toward labor unity would be: Who'll b« boss? Lewis, Murray, Jreen? While Lewis's UMW has maybe 400,000 members, it's only a small outfit compared with the millions under Green and Murray in the AFL and CIO. It's hard to imagine Lewis set- ing up an organization in which ic'd have to say "yes, sir" to Murray or Green. Maybe when the big three retire or die, labor unity will seem more possible than it does now. But just one rung below them on the labor ladder is a host of other eaders, the heads of the various unions making up the AFL and CIO. They all, more or less, make good salaries and, being human, are jealous of their power and wsition. They might have something to say, too about yielding anything they have. The times don't seem favorable tor labor unity. The unions are not under con- entrated attack or in danger of I issolution. Being prosperous, they o not feel pressure to make the acrifices which would be nsces- ary to achieve unity. Meanwhile, Lewis, Murray, and Ireen are getting older.
