Not Much of a Swap Philip Murray, CIO president, recently - announced that the CIO is opposed to ; Communists who work the Communist line as a block within the orgnni/iition. ,,At abqutth'e same time, the Ku Klux Naturally, the AFL capitalized on this situation as it started its organizing campaign below the Muson-Dixon Irnc. It served to present the senior organization of unions as a conservative labor group to a conservative section of the country. Incidentally, it may also have come in hanily to take people's attention away from the AFI/s John L. Lewis, who at the time was i;ot America's No. 1 pinup boy. That this didn't do the CIO's chances in the South any particular good is strictly the CIO's worry. Hut the stimulus it gave to smouldering Klnn sentiment didn't do the country any good, which is more important. A chance to "save the South from the Communists" was a made-to-order opportunity for the Klan's remnants to arise from a grave of shame and public condemnation with a mimimnm of embarrassment. Anyone acquainted with the Klan's history in the years following World War I will hesitate to believe thai an anti-Communist crusade would stop there, or that another political stranglehold on the South and Middle West is not again the ultimate goal. And anyone acquainted with the Klan's shame-faced terrorism, practiced with masked faces in the dark of night in the name of "Americanism," will hesitate to believe that a Klan revival is much preferable to the Communist infiltration which it proposes to fight. It is to be hoped that experience and common sense, bolstered by the law where law is applicable, will throttle this Ku Klux Klan in its infancy. It is equally to be hoped that Mr. Murray, now that he has declared against communist domination of organized American workers, will give his policy a vigilant and continuing enforcement. With this declaration, Mr. Murray has taken on the obligation to allay any suspicion by the public that his belated discovery of Communist influence in his midst was a matter oi.' expediency. It would be a sorry thing indeed it' the CIO's southern campaign should have revived the old evil of Klanisni without destroying the more recent evil of Communism masquerading as unionism. Seems Silly, Doesn't It? *.IN HOLLYWOOD.;; BY ERSKINE JOHNSON NKA Staff Correspondent HOLLYWOOD, May 31. (NEA) — Juckie Coogan, the nearly bald 31- year-old "Kid," Is back in Hollywood for a new radio show after warbling, on a personal appearance tour: "Oh, again to be the actor, With the help of Mr. Factor. Look what he did for Charles Boypr. Although he says he's not sensitive about his baldness, Jackie wears a toupee for his radio sho.v and personal appearances. "The Kitl without any hair is loo much of a shock." At one time ne tried all the anti-bald remedies he could find, but now, he says, "I don't worry about it." Even his kid brother, Robert, 21, just out of the Army, is starting to lose his hair. "It's In the family," Jackie explained. Next to show business—he's been in It all his life—Jackie's hobby is airplanes. It's more than a hobby, though. He's in the business of reconverting and .selling surplus Army planes.

It is unfortunate that Mr. Murray postponed his declaration against the Communists so long. Some CIO unions have been dominated for years by Communists or Communist sympathizers who have pulled the membership back and forth in response to shifts of Moscow policy. There has been no forthright official disapproval of such practices until now. . . *. WASHINGTON COLUMN SO THEY SAY Everybody wants lo lie secure.

Under such n setup, Johnston' B. I,. E. would get all the men in the engine cubs—the engineers and firemen—while Whitney's B. R. T. would take in the rest of the crew —conductors, brakemen, switchmen, and dining-car stewards. It is the belief of many railroad labor, experts that Johnston and Whitney deliberately pulled their strike to Bet more for their members and so build themselves up as the real leaders among railway labor. On that basis, the strike was merely a battle for power in union He talked on and on wistfully. \H he seemed to want to talk about was \vhat had happened jack in those days.

WHITNEY AND JOHNSTON TRAVEL THKIR OWN 1'ATII Whitney and Johnston are the only two railway labor leader., whose brotherhoods are not represented in the Association of Kail- way Labor Executives. Leaders -if the 18 brotherhoods which arc in association don't like to discuss this fight. They arc a peaceful, decent bunch, and they don't think their dirty overalls should be washed in public. They believe that some day soon there will bo new heads of the engineers and trainmen, and that then unity can be restored in the ranks of railway labor. There is much more resentment against Whitney than trrrc is airainst Johnston. Roth men arc old railroaders, and they came up thf hard way. Johnston is 71.
