(fl>j—A jssible merger of the AFL and lo lias suddenly become a serious topic of conversation In labor circles. The reason; AFL President William Green's observation that the chances for .such a move are "better today than they have been In the past six years." Green was commenting on a proposal put fonvard'by Philip Murray, president of the CIO. Murray Invited the AFL, John L. Lewis' United Mine Workers, the International Association of Machinists, and the railroad brotherhoods to join in a grand program of cooperation on legislation, polities, and economic problems. Once that is done, Murray said, the groups could work toward unt- ' fication into a single organization of some 16.000.000 members. The AFL claims 8.000.000 on Us roll.^, the CIO 6,000,000 and the other organ- izations about 3,000,000 together. Green and Murray have split 1° Die past over how unification should be accomplished, and their differences still seemed to'exist. The AFL chief favors immediate consolidation'—as contrasted with the step-by-step procedure suggested by Murray. Green made clear in an interview In New Orleans that he hasn't changed his mind. "The Interests of labor could best be served by the establishment of one strong, united organization," he said. "Anything less would \x temporary.". • But the 76-year-old labor leader said lie will be ready to meet with Murray upon his return to Washington. Green was in Louisiana to attend a meeting of the State Federation of Labor. The CIO was created in 193S and 1936 by an AFL group led by mine leader Lewis. Murray «nd others. Lewis later quit the CIO. Chrysler Scans CIO Peace Offer To End Strike Union Abandons Specific Demands For Pension Fund Charles Binaggio Slain In Kansas City Killings KANSAS CITY, April 6.
