Texas' 50th Legislature has passed a series of new labor laws and Gov. Beauford H. Jester has signed them over the strong protests of union leaders. The Texas house and senate spent more time, debate, animosity and' efforts on labor than on any other single issue. The resulting bills parallel the pending national legislation in some respects. Action Complete Action has already been completed on eight restrictions. The ninth--a ban on secondary strikes, boycotts and picketing--needs only Jester's signature. Another important labor measure has not yet been approved by tho legislature despite repeated requests from the Governor. This Is Rep. George Nokes 1 Texas Labor Relations Act, which .Jester haa advocated as a middle-of-the-road conciliation* measure and which Is the only bill not considered punitive to labor leaders. ' The new laws will: (1) Outlaw the closed shop, It provides that "no man shall be denied the right to work because of membership or non-membership in a labor union." (2) Prohibit mass picketing. II defines mass picketing as two or more pickets placed within,50 feet of each other or at any gate oi a struck plant. CO Prohibit tho picketing of public utilities with intention of disrupting service to the public. The utlltles are limited to water, was and electricity. (4) Prohibit thc chock-off HVB- Lnm, It provides that no employer shall withhold union duos from a member's pay check without written consent of tho employee. (5) Prohibit strikes against the stnte or nny of Its political subdivisions. It also buns public am- ployoH from rtnUii'lntf Into labor contracts and minifies any such contracts already ^in effect. (Ot Make unions responsible for damage resulting from picketing pr .strikes "In the event that such nlckoting or ytrike is hold to bo a breach of contract by a court of competent jurisdiction." (7) and ("81 Make labor responsible for any act constituting a conspiracy 'in restraint of trade, surh ns 'boycotts under the civil n n d penal anti-trust laws of Texas Tho Mokes' mediation measure , now ponding before the house.

June 4 --/P)~ Secretary of Agriculture Anderson accused the House of "betraying" farm and national interests in trimming funds for the government's soil conservation program. I He referred to action of the House last week in ordering funds for the 1947 cut from $300,000,000 to $150,000,000 and in directing that the program be eliminated altogether next year. Saying that soil erosion now costs the nation more than one billion dollars annually in soil losses, Anderson called the House action "false economy." The secretary said that due to wartime drain on the soil, there is a greater than normal need for conservation measures, Anderson said In a speech prepared for n New Hampshire conservation week program. "You can readily see, then, why I believe that cutting the agricultural conservation practices program in half for this year, and wiping it out altogether next year, as the House of Representatives proposes, is a betrayal of agricultural and international interests," he added. Anderson said the House action is, moreover, a repudiation of a farm policy which "Congress--both parties of Congress--had previously adopted.' He said Congress last year authorized the department to proceed on the basis of a $300,000,000 program this year. "Now the House proposes to .saw this program in half in 1047 and bury it in 1948--and with it the Democratic farmer-committee system which in the last decade and a half has been one of agriculture'.'; greatest assets." Anderson said the House action is a "calculated, deliberate killing of a valuable part of the conservation program. It is a trick that amuses few and is sure to hurt, directly or indirectly, everybody In tho nation." Bugle Corps Meets Members of the American Legion Drum and Bugle Corps, in a Joint business-social meeting held at the Legion Hall last night, made plans for attending the state convention of the American Legion to be held at Fort Worth beginning June 29. Tho Corps will enter a competitive exhibition with other units over the state, with a goal set for attending the national convention, which will be hold in New York during August.
