0 Head Denies wis' Charge Workers Chief )• Accused of 'Rumor-Mong* ri ng' June 7— (if) — 5 President Philip Murray today John Ij. L*wis of "Rumor tad "tack of responsi- .. H* made the accusation In tie- Hid of * sUtement by the United Kin* Workers chief yesterday. At th«t Om« Jjewis Mid he had heard th»t Murr»y had »greed to a "pus- illtnlmous compromise" on the T»ft-H»rtI«y labor !•»• repeal. J>wi«, in a message to all Sen- itors, s«ld he had heard reports that Murray and AFL President William Green had agreed to "four oppressive amendments" for inclusion in a new law. Referring to Lewis as a "rule-or- ruln union official," Murray said the mine workers leader's statement contained "false and malic- loin libels" concerning him and Green. A spokesman for the API* yesterday also denied Lewis' statement. Murray said that "considering the •ource" Lewis' statement would be ignored except that It was sent to Senators on the day when TaH- Harlley repeal debate began. " Called Characteristic Murray's message, also sent to Senators, said the Lewis statement, "admittedly based upon rumor rather than fact, is another demonstration of that lack of responsibility which In the recent past has »o frequently characterized Lewis' actions and utterances." Murray said that "unlike Lewis" he campaigned for President Truman and for Congressmen now "actively fighting (or Taft-Hartley repeal." "Lewis speaks of 'secret' agreements," Murray said. "He can speak on this subject more authoritively than I. since I have never In my career made secret deals. "Specifically, I have made no lecret agreements to accept oppressive amendments to the Thomas- Lesinski bill (the administration's repeal measure.)" Murray said his own and the bio's position have always been for repeal and re-enactment of the New Deal's Wagner Act "with improvements designed to furnisb, additional protection to labor's basic rights."
