In calling the bill unfair. Mr. Trutnan said that many of its provisions seemed innocent, but fol- G. "The ~ bill would establish an i lowed "a consistent pattern of In- incffcctivc and discriminatory cincr-I equality" by prescribing unequal geney procedure for dealing with ' penalties lor employes and employ- major strikes — affecting the pub- | crs who commit the same offense. "It would require the NLRFi to give priority to charges against workers over related charges a- gatnst, employers." lie said. "It would discriminate against workers by arbitrarily penalizing them for all erilieal strikes." The President described as ""unfounded" the claim by sponsors ol the measure that the bill wouli equalize the positions of labor and management. In discussing sections of the nil which lie said raised issues o public policy far beyond the ficlc of labor-management difficulties Mr. Truman took particular exceptions to the provision undertaking to restrict political, contribution and expenditures. He said this section would prnhl bit ninny legitimate activities 01 I the part of unions and corporation!; It would prevent "the ordinary nil Ion newspaper" from ccuimcnlin INDEPENDENT GARAGE MEN • We now have a large istock of new Chevrolet engines and block as- semblies.

"The bill would disregard In niportant respects the unanimous convictions of employer and labor representatives at the national la- bor-mnnagement conference in No- •mbcr. 1945." 9. "The bill raises serious Issues of public policy whicli transcend labor-manaBcmenV itf-'kiiljtes." Applies Four Major Tests Mr. Trumnn said he applied to the bill what he considered four major tests: First, whether it would result I" more, or less, government Inicrvcn- lion in our economic lite; Second, whether It would improve employer-employe relations; Third, whether it v.-as workable, and Fourth, whether it was fair. On all four counts Mr. Truman indicated tbc measure as a failure He found the bill "completely contrary" to the national policy ol "economic freedom." He said It would require the government to become "an unwanted participant at every bargaining table." "AL a time when we are rtelci- inincd to remove, as rapidly us practical, federal controls es ablls ed during tlie war. this bill would involve the government in the. free processes of our economic svsi"_" to a degree unprecedented In pea:e- timc." the president said.

"I regard (his as a dangerous intrusion on free siircch, unwarranted \ty any <lemtuistraUon of iicril, and quite foreign to the staled iiurpusc.s of this bill," lie sail!. Mr. Truman raised the possibility that dally new-v-apcrs and railk stations might ho covered by this section of the bill. He said the provision could be interpreted as Rolr.i! far beyond its apparent objectives to interfere with necessary business activities. He also charged the bill niade no distinction between expenditures made by such corporations of business "in connection with" an election. "Thus," the President said. "It would raise a host of troublesome questions concerning the legality o' many practices ordinarily engaged in by newspapers and radio sti- tions." Mr. Tiumitn professed full accor! with congrrssional efforts' to a.ssir,'. labor organizations to rid .themselves of Coomiunlst officers, but he said he was convinced that th^ Taft-IIarlley bill wouVl have In exactly opposite effect.
