H (U.P.) — The proposed work-or-flght legislation now before Congress drew sharp fire from organized labor today. Lewis G. Hines, legislative representative of the American Federation of Labor, fired the opening gun in labor's campaign against the work or fight bill. He told a House committee that present manpower shortages tire caused principally by frozen wage levels In certain plants. Where faster production is needed, wage Increases should be granted, Hines says, and he adds that there should he little danger ol creating inflation through such action because the increases would involve few plants. On the other hand, he Insists national service legislation would force labor to work at low pay to provide profits for employers. Albert Hamilton, appearing for the Socialist Party, also lias attacked the work-or-fight bill. He claimed the manpower problem does not justify a labor draft, that voluntary recruiting has not been exhausted, and that a manpower draft would be undemocratic and would hurt production. President Philip .Murray of the CIO is expected to testify. tomorrow, and Industry's views on the proposed legislation will probably be given later in the week.

This has three strategic posslbllllles: Firsl, the closing of the 800-mile water-way over which Japan has' been moving thc bulk of the male- rlals stolen from thc Indies. French Indo China and Malaya. Second, the entrapment of Japanese garrisons in thc far-flung island regions south of Luzon and Mlndoro. And third, forcing Japan's economy lo subsist largely on the enemy's stockpiles which, allhough large, are not inexhaustible. But before all these possibilities can. become actualities, American troops must seize Luzon. Then coordinated Luzon-based and carrier planes can lurn the Soulh China Sea inlo a watery graveyard for Japanese shipping.
