TUESDAY, OCTOBER '*, 1949 Effects of Labor Influence Cited Rep. Hays Points out Democratic Party Must Represent All WASHINGTON, Oct. 4. (AP) — The Democratic parly must noi become the labor party but must represent and protect all grou|)s, Hep. Brooks Hays <D-Ark.) said yesterday. The Democratic party is at the crossroads, and next year may be the crisis year, he told a reporter. "While the Democratic party has first claim on labor's affections, it .should not become a labor party." Hays said. "It must speak for all groups—we must not abandon that to theory." A labor government, he said, would not be the best interests of either labor or the country as a whole. Ways said the country "can be thankful that a few years ago we headed away from anti-labor government when labor's growing pains produced irritations." Now, he said, "the tremendous power wielded by organized labor and sometimes used irresponsibly— as shown by strikes in public utilities— creates a very real'problem. "Are we headed toward a labor government?" While an anti-labor government would mean an anti-progressive, anti-liberal movement producing stability at the expense of justice, he said, "there Is no guarantee that •a labor government, merely because it purports to speak for millions of people, would protect Democratic institutions."

Steelman In the October issue of The American Magazine, Washington newspaperman James Y. Newton says the 49- year-old native of Arkansas' cotton patches is Hie first wan ever to have the actual title of "the assistant to I the President." Moreover, says Newton In a lengthy article reviewing the impressive career of the one-time Alabama college profassor, Steelman "is proud of the title and guards it Jealously."

In Washington Since 1034 Dr. Steelman first was called to Washington In 1934 by the then Secretary of Labor, Prances Perkins, and has remained In the national capital ever since except for a 10- monlh sojourn in New York as a public-relations consultant. President Truman, shortly after the surrender of Japan, ended this fling !\t private business by Dr. Steelman by summoning him back to Washington anci making him a spEcin) adviser on labor matters in October 1045. The rise of tlie youthful-looking presidential trouble'' shooter has been rapid in the past four years. "Steelman's job is an unenviable one. but he loves It." says Newton.
