MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 19B1 AFL Readies Political Eye For '52 Vote * Delegates Take * Role of League For Big Role BAN KRANCISCO, Sept. 24. W}— The AFL today took up one of its major problems—plans for the 1952 elections. Convention delegates a-ssumed the role of a political league, and . went about the Job of framing a program ol action for getting the AFL's friends elected to Congress. That is the big goal, the political league leaders admit^although the Presidential race will attract mcst attention. Such important political figures in the convention as Dave Beck, the wast coast teamster boss, are insisting that the AFL should not tie itself in the future to any party —that the labor groups should pick and choose their candidates on the bs.sis ol performance or platforms. View Is Shared The same view is shared by other AFL leaders who in the past have leaned heavily toward the Democratic Party, whether this deviation of viewpoint now means that the AFL will break its friendly relations with most Democratic slates jT^with the traditional exception of Jph AFL leaders as "Big Bill" mitcheson of the carpenters — remains to be seen. Because Beck's views probably are representative ot most delegates' what he had to say about General Dwight D. Eisenhower and other potential candidates Is interesting. The Seattle leader said labor organizations should not yet commit themselves to the military hero because "we don't know where he stands on many domestic issues." • In that connection, the American Federationist, the monthly AFL publication, has asked Eisenhower) to declare himself on these Issues. A reply is awaited daily. NOTICE WHEREAS.

(ff,~ You can't help liking Gregory Peck. I kept thinking that as I watched him on the set of "World in His Arms," It was a hot September day on the U-I back lot. The crew had been working on a dusty set depicting J850 San Francisco and the lunch hour wasn't called until 2 o'clock. Instead of racing to the coolness of his dressing room, Peck agreed to pose In the broiling sun for publicity shots with a child actress. After many minutes of posing the photographer got all the shots he wanted and Peck told the little girl: "I'm glad to have met you; I hope we can work together in a picture very soon." Later, a studio bigwig was commenting, "that guy Peck is certainly easy to get along with; unlike most actors, he seems to have no problems." "Maybe that's because he's one of the few actors who realized how well off he is," someone added That seems to be true of all the actors who have risen in the past decade. Peck appears to have the best future.
