. THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 1949 CIO Convention Expels U! Unit Action Develops on Resolution Offered By Walter P. Reuther CLEVELAND, Nov. 3. (IP) — The CIO convention yesterday expelled the United Electrical Workers, largest or its so-called left wing unions, The action came on a resolution sponsored by Walter P. Reiithcr ami after an impassioned speech by CIO President Philip Murray, who shouted: . • "Tliere is no room within the CIO for Communists." Murray traced his efforts of the past two years to reconcile the U.E. leaders to discard the com mi' party line, which he. said ^ they followed, and adopt the CIO . policy. The move was opposed by Harry Bridges, West Coast longshoreman, Abrain FJoxcr. of the United Public Workers, and Pielro Lucchl, secretary-treasurer of the Fur nrnd Leather Workers. All three claimed that U.E. was being dumped with- oi't a hearing. But Murray insisted that "U.E has been given its trial." The U.E. delegates boiled the convention yesterday.. Murray said "they ran like skulking cowards and after they did run they left these apostles of hate behind to defend them." The three unions represented by Bridges, Flaxer and Lucent also are threatened with removal, possibly before the end of the convention The convention also amended the CIO constitution to bar Communists and' party line followers from holding top office In the CIO and to authorize the executive board to throw out any union member under Communist domination. The more than 600 delegates also voted—with only a scattering of left wing delegations opposing it—to increase the per capita dues to the CIO from eight cents a month to 10 cents a monlh. That would yield the nations CIO treasury an additional one mil- Hop, dollars a year. Most of that obviously would be poured into a gigantic drive to recapture the rank and file membership of the unions > which the convention or the executive board votes to expel.

Britain's Labor Party Announces Election for July LONDON, Nov. 3—OP)—A government spokesman announced in the House of Lords last night the British general election'will be held next July 6. •> 'The announcement was made by Lord calm-ley, who has been a Labor Party member since 1919. He made the statement In.a pers' debate on the British ecpnomlo situation in which Conservatives were preparing to pass a vote, of censure against the government.

Lord Calverlcy said the Conservatives could not defeat labor In the next election, and added:, "We "cannot be defeated unless wo defeat ourselves." ' ' By James Monlagncs NBA Special Correspondent TORONTO — (NEA) — United Slates aircraft manufacturers, whose planes now carry the bulk of the world's commercial air passengers, have plenty of plans for commercial Jet transports—on pap- ^r. So far. hoivever, iney hnve no men planes under construction. But they have two strong chal- enges for Ihe world market. When 'he first inter-city jet airliners be;in operating on scheduled routes n North America, they most likely will be Canadian designed. Canada's bid was made at the first official flight of the Avro Jetliner, a four-jet,' <!27-miles-per- 'lour transport built to carry up ;o 50 passengers on short-haul express service. It would put New York and Toronto, for instance, less than an hour apart. With a ransre of 800 to 1000 mlies, 16 is not de- •lEned for trans-ocean service. l)H)u( ol the Jetliner, built by the Toronto branch of British planemaker A. V. Hoe, had an audience of top aviation brass which Included many U.S. airline officials. Eddie' Rlckenbacker, whose Eastern Airlines shames most others by consistently making money, reportedly 'Is Interested. His airline is one of the few which stuck to the DC-3 when the new and faster Convalr began taking over short- haul work. Rickenbacker, it. was Indicated, \vas waiting for Jets. And A. V. Roe expects to have Its' Jetliner in commercial use by early 1051. A flight In the Jetliner differs from conventional planes malnlv in the absence of noise, both Inside and outside. On take-off there is a high-pitched whine, and heat waves surge back of the plane. It is airborne at 100 miles per hour, in about the same distance u & conventional four-enelried commer- clal transport. flying overhead, the plane is •almost silent, with a whine following after it has passed over. Inside, pilots report they do not need earphones to talk to each other or to hear the Control lower radio. Once, aloft there is no sound In the plane, and they report !t as calm as floating in space, Outwardly, the jet air transport is about the 'same size and con struction as a conventional plane, but has a higher tail assembly. Airline operators hope Jets will permit cheaper fares, since upkeep Is expected to be less. The fuel Is kerosene, cheaper than high octane gasoline. Engines can be removed in less than 20 minutes, nno are located within ground reach ol engine crews.' The high speed will allow more frequent runs with less equipment.

Its maker claims it Is capable of making the New York-to-Londou flight in sl\ nours. l)e Havillnnd. which had government contract to build the Comet already has orders for 16 of the planes from the British. It promises 1952-53 delivery for U.S. prospects. Likewise, A. V. Roe had help from -'he Canadian government American planejnnkers , have announced readiness to build Jets wnen they gel an order, but there was no government help in the offing. .

Luxora : PETTY'S PHARMACY Dell: CAYCE'S PLACE The Power at made Buick Famous I F you want to know what's "the newest thing" in automobile engines, Jook at the Buick engine pictured here, and you'll see the words "valve-in- head." But it happens that this isn't new with Buick. As a matter of fact, the valve-in- head engine was invented back in 1902 -U. S. Patent No. 771095-and immediately, Buick adopted the principle, which became the first in a long string of "Buick firsts." Not everyone went for the idea-then. In spite of the fact that this engine "breathes" more freely-gets fuel in ami exhaust gases out more easily others hung onto their pet ideas. Then came the airplane, with its need for maximum power from every drop of fuel—and every'maker of internal combustion airplane engines adopted the valve-in-head principle. And more recently—with the hope that higher-octane fuels will become available for motor cars—a lot of automotive engine designers are taking a new look at the valve-in-head idea. But just for the record, we'd like lo point out that Buick got there first. And ever since, Buick has gone stcadil y ahead, building up a name as "valvc-in- headquarters." Buick engineers reshaped pistons to put Fireball wallop in these engines. They stepped up com- pression ratios as fast as better fuels came along. So perhaps you'll want to remember, when you hear the term "valve-in- head," (hat this is the type of power that made Buick famous. If others vyant to climb on the bandwagon, we say "more power to them" — and no pun is intended. But Buick has been doing more with valvc-in-head right from the start. And-wc might add-it.stands to reason that Buick is not through making this type of engine better and better. »'*«« better amlnmabilcf cm built KIJiCK if ill build them VOUf KtY TO // Gllttll VHUl lit LANGSTON-McWATERS BUICK Co.
