I CIO representative decided on j thf! step at the close of n twn- j d n y recruiting conference here yes- I torday, I The action followed an address ' b y Van Bittner, national vice-pre- j s i d e n t of the United Steel Workers I (CIO) and director of the CIO southern 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 j today was built on two firm a foundation to easily fall. "Neither the Hartley-Taft 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 organ 1/ers. 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 ns 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 1946, 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 u n i o n quicker than all the pnid organizers in the world."
