(UPJ — CIO President Philip Murray in- day faced his toughest fight for the survival ot his organization since John L. Lewis took a walk in 1942. Murray returns here to meet the crisis created by till death :osl week of Sidney Hillman. president of th* Amalgamated clothing Workers and chairman of the CIO Political Action Committee. He has one more day to map plans before meeting with CIO vice presidents on Wednesday and the executive board Thursday and Friday. With HHinan dead and Lewis back In the AFL ready to lead raids on the CIO, Murray Is the last of the "Big Three" who masterminded the organization of the Committee for Industrial Organlza. lion in 1935 and its growth Into » permanent trade union federation in 1940. His problems are to maintain the labor union militancy aifd political potency created by Hillman; preserve the unity of the several . CIO factions which Hillman was able to enhs't. and to build resistance against AFL raids. Labor leaders said the way Murray meets these tests will have lar-reaching effects on the ClO's influence In American and woild Inbor affairs and Democratic Parly decisions. The November elections were expected to show the first concrete results of Murray's efforts. - Hillman came to-national IcW.lcr- shlp in American labor and politics almost simultaneously. He was one of the band of 12 to 20 persons who met during National Recovery Administration days In the office of Secretary of Labor Frances Perkins to plan the social legislation which became the Social security. National Labor Relations and Fair Labor Standards acts. > At about the same time, Hillmau gained membership In the American Federation of Labor, fe had split «rth the AFL in 1914, organized a rump movement which became I he Amalgamated clothing workers and for 19 years remained an independent union. The AFL blames him for splitting off 10 big unions to form the CIO in 1935 after the executive council had jjersuaded Lewis to abandon the dual movement. .In Hie end, Lewis yielded'to Ktllman. Hillman threw CIO-PAC support behind Harry S. Truman for the vice presidential nomination In 1914 and then organized the labor vote- getting program which helped elect the Roosevelt-Truman ticket. Hillman's 13 years association .411 the Inner councils of government am Democratic politics made the power behind the CIO, many CIO men say. AFL, leaders doubt that Murray oil at the crucial moment.
