Lewis Denounces President of AFL Green's Refusal to Join in Providing Funds Brings Blast WASHINGTON, Oct. 19-W)— : John L. Lewis bitterly denounced AFL President William Green today for turning down a proposal to help finance e. J2,500,000 weekly strike fund for Phillip Murray's CIO sice) workers. The mine workers chiefs caustic note to Green said: "You cry loud for labor peace and labor security, but seldom 'do anything to achieve It." Lewis had proposed that his own mine workers—themselves on strike —put up $250,000 weekly to help Murray's steel strikers, and that nine AFY unions put up equal amounts. Green replied that pooling labor's resources was "impossible and impracticable" so long as Lewis anj Murray fail to bring their unions into the AFL. Murray approved Lewis' Wea but said the proposed $2,500,000 a week fund should help striking mine workers as ii-ell as striking steel workers. The leaders of the three big divisions of organized U. S. labor once were closely associated but have split widely as tlie labor movement divided- Lewis in Caustic lleply Today Lewis filed this reply at Cireen following the AFL. leader's rejection of the plan: "You have justified my Judgment. 1 did not think you would do anything. You didn't. You rarely do. Unfortunately, you follow invariably your well known policy of anxious inertia. You cry loud for labor peace and labor security,'but seldom do anything to achieve it. "I note that you are going to Europe with nine of your associates executives, while there, doubtless' you..will adjust the European situation. When yon adjust it satisfactorily and return to your own country, I may write you again. "At tlie moment I am too busv to continue a fruitless discussion." Tills seemed to wrjtc off Lewis' hopes for AFL aid In Murray's steel strike. There was no indication that Lewis would go it alone and provide his proposed $250,000 weekly from the miners union treasury. Green is leading a delegation of top AFL leaders to Europe in the next several weeks. They expect to go to London to take part In forming a new world labor federation. The CIO is also sending a delegation. Lewis may send representatives, too, but he has not decided. MILITARY Continued from Page 1 statement," Vamlenbtrg said, "Is that men of the caliber of General (Dwight D.) Elsenhower, General Bradley and General Collins would put either the elimination or the curtailment of a service before the national Interest." ; He thought (lie answer to that, he said, is "the esteem In which those genUemcnt are held by the people." Short tangled with Vandenberg on : several points. He accused Vandenberg ol talk- Ing a "lot of bosh" when the Air Force general said Rear Admiral Ralph A. ofstie had opposed strategic bombing. Short said Ofstie was not opposing strategic bomb- irw but Jt« proportion to th« whole defense set-up. The Navy, In hearings last week, Had argued that the Air Force should spend less time and money on strategic bombers and more on tactical sir power to support ground operations. Such a policy shift as this, Vandenberg said, would mean: '1. "We would give up the deterrent value of this nation's atomic weapons and we would place ourselves In disagreement with all of those people who, on both sides of the ocean, believe that Soviet aggression Is in fact now'. being deterred. . •'.'.•••<•• 2. "We would inform the Russians that they need now take no defensive measures .against a possible atomic attack on their heartland. B-3fls. B-47s and B-SOs by merely existing can and do force the Soviet Union to channel its Industrlalpow- er, technological skill, manpower •nd money Into .purely defensive measures and, thus cut down resources which would otherwise be devoted to offensive parposes" • Navy .Spectator!

"If war Is forced on" us,, this proposal deprives us of the oppor- tunly of: choking off'enemy wur- maklng power at Its source" The hearing room'was Jammed with spectators 'when Vandenberg, his blouse front agleam will) ribbons, took the stand at the direction of Chairman Vliison (D-Ga). He was accompanied to'the hear, g ?i',Air Secretary Symington, who testified yesterday, and by top Air Force generals . Vandenberg first took up the attacks by navy officers on national defense policies which set high importance jm strategic bombing. He icad to the committee excerpts from a Joint chiefs of staff document taylng the chiefs, separately and Jointly, agree that the policies are Dust Sickness Studied ?

The strategic air command, Vandenberg said, operates directly un« o'er the joint chiefs of staff, rather than the Air Force. California's Bud Moth Must Be Full ot Prunes BERKLEY, Calif., —«PH-' Public Enemy iVo. 1 around California prune orchards Is getting to be the eye-spotted bud moth. Dr. Harold P. Madscn of the University of California has been keeping labs on this bug that has been sabotaging half the crop In some orchards. Madsen says that in the larval stage it tle s ri leaf to a prune, the crawls under and feeds in the shade. Tlie fruit exudes sap which cements the leaf to it and makes it a cull. The moth long has fed on New England and Canadian apples. Madden says it emigrated to California only ten years ago and has tried apricots and peaches, which 11 doesn't like, pears which it will tolerate, and apples, cherries and prunes.' which 11 likes best.
