(J JO for Uuw mcoUif; D, ami: oiiUid* f» mlV «x», «1*M pv nw In Quiz Program If we were a congressman totlity we should demand, in addition to the pro]x>sc(l $15,000 annual salary, a" additional ?G'4 for trying to guess what sort of labor legislation President Truman wants, and double time for trying to draft it. It would be worth it, too. For Congress, if it aims to please, lias got to solve some really tough riddles. Like the following: A few weeks ago Mr. Truman had to act quickly and drastically because, as he said, .two men were threatening • to tie up the country's whole economy through a railroad strike. Yet now he wants-a law in which neither management nor labor "should be permitted to become too powerful." ' Mr. Truman still wants emergency powers permitting him to seize an industry when crisis threatens and to draft workers into the armed forces. Yet he cautions Congress to remember, in legislating, that labor is "coming of age" and should not be deprived of "equality with management." Jlr. Truman tells Congress that "we cannot attribute work stoppages to aiiy one factor . . . Strikes must be considered in the whole context of our modern society. They must be considered jn the light of inflationary pressures, of problems of full' employment,' of economic security." , At the same time, he objects to the Case bill because "its range is broad, dealing with a wide variety of subjects, some of which are wholly, un- rfehUcd to the subject of settling of - pieveuUng strikes." He objects to the: Case bill as "permanent legislation , ., . And it applies not to a few seleclcd aml'-vital industries, but to every dispute." In other words, strikes must be considered in the whole context of our njpdern society, but the range must be narrow and'the subjects limited. Mr. Truman pleads for equality of both management and labor. Yet he objects to one section of the Case bill because it "does no more than prohibit all persons, whether union representatives or employes or other, from inter- fering with interstate commerce by robbery or extortion." That would seem to be equality— prohibiting the old sport of highway robbery to everyone, 1:0 matter who. Vet Mr. Truman wants the wholly unequal and unnecessary stipulation that this prohibition would not "impair, diminish or ii: any manner affect the rights of bona fide labor organi/alions in lawfully carrying out the legitimate objects 'thereof." If we were a congressman we shouldn't relish an attempt to fill that complicated prescription. For apparently what is wanted is tcmprary leg- • islation so strong as to earn for Congress all the hard words that' Mr. Truman has been called for requesting it, and permanent legislation so mild that all organized workers would sprain an ankle in their rush to vote the whole Congress back into office. Such a prescription would undoubtedly result in a permanent state of latent economic chaos, with periodic eruptions calling for temporary seizures, drafts and denunciations. But, come to think of it, we've got almost that situation already. So maybe, if we were a congressman, we just wouldn't bother with any labor legislation whatsoever.
