Y., TUESDAY, JANUARY 6,1948 Oppos Single Qopy, Five Cents Loom As Congress Meets ition Of CIO To Wallace Benefit Truman And Dewey Resolution Asks Unions to Leave fl.Y. Labor Party Observers Believe Governor May Be Needed to 'Carry State for 'GOP !ldree_311 Have Same Birth Day ALBANY, (.T)--The New Yoik slate CIO.s condemnation of the presidential candidacy of Henry A. Wallace vvas viewed in political Circles here today as a "break" foi both Governor Dewey and President Truman. Through its executive boatd, t h e state CIO adopted a resolution last night terming "irresponsible" the action of Wallace and his supporters in launching a t h u d party movement. The Mars-hall plan uas endorsed m another resolution Tlie CIO boaicl urged CIO unions affiliated with the American Labor party to withdraw then support from the party if it "persists" in backing Wallace. When Wallace announced his candidacy, at the bead of a third party, it v. as widely predicted he would damage Dewey's chances of winning the Republican picsiden-; tial nomination. The icasonmg went thus: ALP Support Wallace would have ALP support, with its noimal complement of approximately a half-millio-; votes, all in pivotal New Yoik state. This would be enough to defeat Truman here no matter w bom th« Roniibbrvins- nominated Therefore, the GOP would not leel it had to choose Dewey in order to stand the best chance of swinging lhc state ifttb "the Republican column But the action of the CIO executive board, in the opinion of political analysts here, w i l l cut deeply into the American Labor party strength and leave the party far less effective as a balance of power. This in turn was regaided as making Republican victory in New York state next fall less certain and therefore re-enhancing De\\- ey's chances of gaining the GOP presidential nomination. Less Defection To the Democrats it was e\ i- dence of considerably less New York defection from Truman to Wallace than was feared when tne former Democratic vice-president announced he was, leading a third party into the race. CIO unions are the coie of t h e American Labor party's stienglli. And today in New York City, one of the bulwarks of the Alp--the Amalgamated clothing Workers at America--vvas meeting to consider withdrawing from the p a t t y Moreover, it is k n o w n d e f i n i t e l y that tomorrow In New York city ALP stale chairman Hyman Blumberg and other "right-wing" officers will resign from the parly in protest against the Wallace candidacy.
