WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 4, 1944 EDSON IN WASHINGTON n • Little Steel 7 Faces Showdown By PETKR EDSQN C'Burlcr News Waslilnglon Corrc- SDondi'jil While the War Labor Board is eoiiduetlng Its public' hcnrlilgs on petitions of labor orgniil/alions to break the Little Steel Formula, It will-be confronted with plena that Ihc Issue be settled on the basis of the unions' ipcdiic demands, and not on tlic basis of some trick new theory, netting up a postwar waxe policy, or as a political football to be kicked around till after the election. Labor lenders arc beginning to infer that they arc finding It more and more difficult to hold their unions In line. The wage Issue has been around since last November, end at recent union conventions the leaders had a hard time keep- Ing the rank nnd file from voting to abnndon the no-strike pledge. Three- times the repeal of that pledge burely escaped passage at the Auto Workers convention, nnd It Is still to be decided by a referendum of the more than a million members In this biygesl union in the world. The Rubber Workers'" convention also had n c'ose .call because .'.omc oi their biggest locals wanted lo repeal 1 the pledge. By some standards, the United Mine Vfprkcrs Jmve nlrcndj- broken the pledge through their countenancing of strikes of supervisory employes. And so it goes, "I'OWKKIKHJSP.' 1 HACKS MOVK Unions now involved in (Icninnd. 1 ! lo brenk the Little blcel. Formula Include the entire A. F. of L., ami In the C. I. O., the Steel-workers, the Electrical, Aluminum, Glass Auto, Packinghouse and Shipyard workers. It Is far nnd away the most potent labor pressure group ever to innrshnl Us forces behind a single (leinnnd—"defrosllng of wages," as It's, cnllcd by Editor Lcn DcCau.x o( the C. I. O. News. In till.!. nnrllculnr, the mlinlnls- trnlion ffndc Itaelf on a hot spot.

Vlnson, Price Administrator Chester Uowles, War Pood Administrator Marvin Jones, ami War Labor Board Chairman WDlImn II. Davis Issued a report to the President, bragging about how well the line had been held. "The level nf bnslc factory wnge rates, has been raised less than one and one-half cents nn hour," said the report. "Wngw hnve been stabilize!. . "We must, not jeopardize these gains by any change of policy or relaxation of effort In Ihe critical montlis Rhead," the report recommended towards (lie end. "The need for, continued .restraint ,nhd c/m- t hilled ' co-opcr.&llon "willV ' every phase of the stabilization program (c evident. Obviously.- too, we should cling to the policies and mncliliicry which have served us so effectively thus fur." Those are noble sentiments, but ngain the prophets of doom are predicting that If the Little Btecl Formula \f, now lo be broken, somebody is going to have to eal 'cm, NKW WACI-: CHANGES Chairman Davis of'WLTS has indicated (lint (lie Board might conic up with recommendations for changes In wage policy different from the changes demanded by the Inlyjr unloux. The Inference in this Important statement Is (hut the l:oaid might be thinking more about preventing wage reductions after the war, when the economic:' objective will be lo maintain purchasing power and consumption. It Is a cpicsUUn how satisfactory any such novP formula—bending the Llltle St«l Formula without breaking It—would be lo the labor lenders. In previous evasions of the Lillle Sleel Formula, the coal niineif, got portal-to-porlal pay, the non-opcrallng railroad brother-, 1 hoods got,overtime, bul these two' groups got only minor adjustments hi basic pay rules. What the present drive against the Litlle Sleel Formula Is all about Is to gel-'in- crcnses In bnslc pay rrites on work week.-; of <10 hours or .(ess. Besl iri- dlcalion uf Hits trend came'from the miners' convention In C'incln-! imtl, when It ttus announced that they would ask for n dollur a day increase In basic pay, with adoption of the .seven-hour ilny and five-day week in place of the nhie- liour dny and six-day week ' in force nt present. , Reconversion Plans ' Will Be Discussed ' LITTLE ROCK, Oct. -1 ; (UP) -?Executive Director H.

MfllN ST.» State Seeks Protection In Livestock Liability LITILE ROCK, Get, 4 (UP) — The Arkansas Claims Commission has adopted a resolution which would protect the sUUc against financial loss when privately owned animals die following vaccination by the stale veterinarian, The resolution, which will be submitted to the Arkansas Livestock Sanitary Board, proposes that the veterinarian's office obtain a re- ICMLSE from liability before vaccinating any livestock. The action was taken after the claims commission granted a claim for $2035 as the result of the death of 10 horses In Desha County. The clnlinant contended that the horses died after being given the wrong kind of vaccine by the state veterinarian. The claims commission also awarded $13,310 to the Mutual Benefit Health and Accident Association of Omaha, Neb., as a refund of a two per cent Insurance premium tax erroneously collected during the years from 1931 to 1940. air AM' •? ,T ollcd '" OM ° AM- Tir.lnlng Command's <->ow irainln B courses.
