(UP) — Chairman J. Pnrncll Thomas of (.lie House UnAmerican Committee ree- , omniended today that an allegedly Communist-controlled CIO union be penalized under the new Tafl- • Hartley labor law. The New Jersey Republican urged that the United Pood, Tobacco und Agricultural Workers (CIO) be denied protection of the National Labor Relations Board. The Taft- Kartley Act holds that if n union is controlled by Communists, it is not entitled to NLHB help. Thomas' recommendation followed a committee session at which two officials of the union's Win- ston-Snlem, N. C., local and an in- •ternational union representative re-! fused to commit themselves on the issue of Communism. Thomas said that in the absence of a denial, the committee would have to assume that the trio were Communists. He said the committee would make a special report to Congress on (he. Pood and Tobacco Workers Union. Test Case Material Found "After we have made our report. it is a matter both for Congress and tlie new National Labor Relations Board to lake appropriate ac- tloni" he said. "This Is undoubtedly a test case under the Taft-Hartley Law." ' I Under the law, officials of all ] local nnd national unions within the scope of the board's authority must sign affidavits that they arc not Communists. If they refuse, the board cannot handle their cases. Tliis portion of the law becomes effective on Aug. 22. The three PTA officials who declined to tell the committee whether they._are Communists are Hobert Black and W. Clark Shepjnrd, co- chai!:inen of the Winston-Salem local, and Edwin K. McCrea. international union -representative, who holds the flying cross as a result of his wartime service as an aerial gunner. They refused t,o testify on grounds it might incriminate them. McCrea wouldn't say whether In-j bor would fare better under a dem- i ocratic or Comnumistic system. lie rend a statement charging that the committee was trying to wreck the union. He said the committee was called in to "smear" the PTA nf-' ter the K. J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. 1 was unable to break a recent strike.! They Do Things Differently in Korea Ahoskie, N.

About 15i residents, including three school board members, from Brown School District were present at the hearing to protest consolidation of that district with Manila's. The opposition group contended that while the petition asking such action contained signatures of majority of qualified electors that district, the school board hac been by-passed in the move anc not consulted in any way. School laws, however, do not re quire that such a petition be con sidered or approved by the dis trict's school board, so the decision remained with the county hoard. Tlie Board retired for about 15 minutes and returned to announce they had decided to defer action on the matter until Tuesday. W.
