Look Before Leaping News dispatches from San Juan indicate an apparent break between Go.v. Rexford Guy Tugwell and his erstwhile crony, Senate Leader Luis Munoz Martin. Muuoz's Puerto Rican New Deal or "Populares" party lias put through bills demanding a voice in the selection of Dr. Tu'gwell's successor and a : plebiscite as to Puerto Rico's future political status. Munzo has leaned strongly toward independence for the island, and in such a plebiscite probably would achieve a majority for separation from the United Status. Governor Tugwell has vetoed the two bills, which probably will be repassed and sent to President Truman for final action. Three years ago President Roosevelt said that there was no question that the Puerto Ricans now are cap- ; able of administering their own affairs. That is not quite accurate. There is a. very real question. But if nothing more were involved than this 'question, it is doubtful whether the United States, trading on pur superior size and military strength, would be justified in holding the Puerto Ricans to unwilling colonial status. Unfortunately, there are other considerations. One arises from the fact that Puerto Rico enjoys a distinctly preferred status. It is permitted to retain its own customs receipts, and its people are exempted from the federal income tax so that the insular government can levy a tax of its own. Without contributing to federal income, it. benefits from at least its full share of federal public works and relief expenditures. It has all the privileges and benefits of American citizenship except complete self-rule and a vote in Washington, with none of the obligations. That special status is extended because without it the two million Puerto Ricans could not even subsist on their one million arable (and another million waste) acres. Even with such dispensation they barely 'manage to hold wasted bodies and oppressed souls together. A second consideration is that Puerto Rico occupies a particularly strategic loca'tiou in the Caribbean for protection of the Panama Canal. It' we •graVit freedom, it must be with some provision for defensive naval and air installations on the island. 'Before committing ourselves on this questiori of turning Puerto Rico loose, we ought to have firmly in mind just how much—and how—we intend to contribute to keep these wards of ours from 'starvation, and what—perhaps in return—we should obtain in the way of Canal defense rights on the island. Perfectly Legal The Jersey Central railroad's trainmen agreed to call oft' their lone wolf strike, at least until the President's fact-finding board reports. That was a very wise decision. In our opinion the union would have done itself, and the general cause of unionism, great damage if it had .struck. But let's be clear about it—the union had a legal right to strike. The Railroad Mediation Act does not forbid a strike during the 30-day period given to a fact-finding board to study and report. It merely invites public opinion to condemn such a strike and its perpetrators. The fact that strikes during such periods 'arc virtually unknown is an argument in favor of the philosophy that underlies the mediation act. Tch, Tch, All That Muscle Going to Waste Look to the East Premier ZdCnek Ficrlinger oC Czechoslovakia denies that his country has turned her back on the western Allies, but concedes that she "is looking for safety to Soviet Russia." lie doubts that the United States or Britain can offer a treaty of alliance, as Russia has done. It is barely possible, too, that the premier remembers a city named Munich, and a conference that was held there not too many years ago. He may have been following more recent diplomatic exchanges in which Russia and the western Allies are involved. In bin place, with whom would you play ball? So would we.

BY PETER EDSON ] NEA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON, Mar. 1G. <NEA) -No one point, 111 current negotiations between John L. Lewis's United Mine Workers and the coal operators is apt to tie more kicked nvountt und misunderstood than the question of organizing the so- called supervisory employes. It will be represented as "an nl- tempt by labor to usurp the powers of management." It will be tied in with the drive against the foremen's union In the automobile industry. There is no connection, ei- cc])t that both grew out of shortsighted policies which did not give the foremen and supervisory, eotr ployes their proper plnce in the industrial scheme of things, thereby forcing them to break away from top management und join forces with rank-and-filc labor In the first place, it is thr contention of the United Mine Work- era that it does not seek, and never has wanted, to organize [he mine superintendents, foremen, fire bosses, tipple foremen, or others who have the right to hire nnd fire and are recogni/nbly a part of management. ONi: MINCK IN EVEY TEN A FOREMAN' Organization of supervisory cm ployes in the mines yrcw out of mechanization of the aiinos. Before coal cutting and loading came into use. there wei'e only a few foremen in a mine. With the introduction of mining machinery u crc\v of 10 men had to be os- signccl to c nch unit, nnd nniunUiy enough, one man out of the 10 had to be boss. To begin v;Hh, h^ wns just another miner, with a li'.tle more wit and mechanical ability than the other nine -non in his ingotiations witli the operators for general new contract, Lewis is landed a beautiful break in a Na- ional Labor Relations Board deci- sion in the Jones and LaugMin case. It Is a specific'ruling that supervisory employes in coal mine.'; who wish to join a union for collective bargainfng are legible to do so under the Wagner Act. In effect, this reverse's • the Maryland Dry Dock case opinion. California-fruit growers have resumed shipment of fresh citrus fruit to th e orient. and Scandinavia. ' • • :' • 16 Gal.
