CIO representative decided on j t.he step at the close of n t.wo- i d a y recruiting conference here yesterday. The action followed an address · by Van Bittner, national vlcu-pre- : sklent; of t h e United Steel Workers ! (CIO) and director of the CIO ( s o u t h e r n organization drive, that the "best answer to those who desire the downfall of labor" was the enlistment of new union members. Bittner declared organized labor ; today was built on two firm a foundation to easily fall. "Neither the Hartley-Tan bill nor any other bill will destroy labor," he said. "They will only make us more determined than ever to carry on our fight." The volunteer recruiting committees to be established in each city, Bittner explained, would be supplemented by paid staff organizers. ^ Robert Oliver, Texas director of the "Operation Dixie" organizational campaign, told the 500 delegates that the Lone Star state was the last in the Union to adopt the volunteer committee plan. He predicted it would be as successful here as In other states. " W e ' v e o r g a n i z e d 8 3 p l a n t s i n T e x a s s i n c e mid- May of 1040, but that isn't enough," Oliver said. "We've got to organize more and volunteers working in their spare time are the persons who can and must do it. John Brown, talking over the backyard fence to neighbor Bill Smith, can convince Smith he should Join a, union quicker than all the paid organizers in the world," Murderer Dies In Electric Chair HUNTSVILLE, June 2.-- (/P) -Louis Jones, 29, convicted murderer from Gonzalez, died in the electric chair at the state penitentiary here today, his last wish to shake hands with the prison warden.
