Sen. Taft Attacks Actions on 'Red' Labor Leaders WASHINGTON, May t. W)-6«n.. stor Taft (R-Ohlo) said today It is bunk for the Justice Department to claim it Is having trouble prosecuting labor leadens who may swear with fingers crossed they are not Communists. The question of aclfon against tnch officials takes on more Importance now that the Supreme Court has ruled the non-Communist oath requirement of Ihe Taft-Hartley labor law la legal. The court gave Us decision yesterday. Taft told a reporter it is the fault of the Jusllce Department, not of lh« law of which he Is co-author, thai there have been no prosecutions for taking the oath falsely." "Don't Want to Act" "They don't want to prosecute," he said. "They don't want to do anything against union leaders. The whole government has taken the same attitude. President Truman had that attitude toward John L. Lewis—he didn't want to do anything against Lewis." Taft said he saw no need for revising the part of the law forbidding unions to use National Labor Relations Board machinery unless their officers s»-ear they are not Reds. But Senator McClellan (D-Ark) said In a separate interview It would be a good idea to tighten up the provision to make legal actloi easier. It was McClellan who got the provision into the law in the . first place. "Nerer Has Been" "Perhaps," he suggested, "a union leader should he required to say he never has been a Communist, or that he hasn't been one for a certain number of years." The Justice Department has taken the position that It is hampered in prosecutions because the non- Communist oath is in present tense Assistant Attorney General James S. Mclnerney has said that to convict a person of a violation would require proof that he was a Communist or supporter of violent action against Ihe U.S. government on the exact date he took the oath. Thus some authorities think the law has a loophole—that a union leader who was a Red yesterday could renounce communism today take the oath, and then go back to • being a Communist again tomorrow But Tatt said it is "bunk, absolute nonsense" for the Justice Department to argue it Is hindered In "court procedures. FBI Gels Evidence "The only difficulty is In getting the evidence," Taft said. "They Imve the FBI for that. They were successful, all right, In proving n people were Communists in New York.' : Tiie National Labor Relations Board has asked the Justice De- .'partment to look into oaths'taken by leaders of at least five left-wing *• Unions. Taft said there are 23 cases Among the individuals whose oaths are under study are: Harry Bridges, head of the CIO longshoremen's union, who WHS convicted April 4_ of having lied about 'Communist connections In order to obtain American citizenship." Julius Emspak, secretary-treasurer, and James Matles, organization director, of the United Electrical Workers, which has been expelled by the CIO on grounds of Red domination. The House Un-American" Activities Committee has accused Emspafc and Matles of being Communists. Max Perlow. secretary-treasurer of the 0nfted Furniture' Workers, also threatened with CIO expulsion. Perlow announced he had resigned from the Communist Party but wasn't giving up Its principles.
