Pearl By BKUCK CATTON Courier News Washington Correspondent i WASHINGTON, Dec. 11. — The , whole controversy between the A, I p. of L. and the C. I. O. may he greatly affected by a decision the Supreme Court is expected to hand down before the end of the year; The case does not involve the C. I. O. directly, but concerns a jurisdictional fight between ' two A. F. L. unions—the Brotherhood of Carpenters and the International Association of Machinists. It, hinges, however, on the question whether legal protection of the right to strike extends to a union which is waging a jurisdictional strike. Case at St. Louis, where a tttlf! over a year ago- the Depart- nent of Justice indicted William (Big Bill) Hutcheson, head of ha Carpenters' Union, and three isso'Jiates, as the result of a jurisdictional scrap on the,'premises of the Anheuser-Busch Brewing • Co. Anhcusw-Buseh had contracts have often asserted \ that such union activity is largely responsible for prevention ofl the use of cheap building materials and prefabricated house sections.

They struck, and the indictments 'followed/ U. S district court in Missouri threw the indictments out, and the ; case ir. now before the high court on an appeal. LOWER COURT SIDED WITH UNION The lower court held, in -substance; that no conspiracy to. restrain trade and commerce was shown, that the real purpose of the union leaders was not to're- strain commerce, but to win. a labor controversy, and that the Norris-LaGuardia act'modifies the anti-trust law sufficiently to pro- ect a union which is employing awful means to wage a jurisdictional strike. : , • If the Supreme Court upholds this decision, the Department of Justice's campaign against high building costs will be restricted— at least in so far as such costs ,can be traced to union boycotts and Even more interesting is the possible effect on the A. F. of L.- C. I. O. controversy if the court should rule that union leaders may be indicted for restraining interstate commerce in a jurisdictional fight. A Department at Justice which chose to follow :;u<.:l n decision by bringing Indictmem.s against jurisdictional strike leaders could very quickly, rub tho jurisdictional strike completely ou :.f the picture. -If that should' uappen, the two rival labor groups would have no weapons left to fight each other with. ; KMPLOYCK I1KM) I'OWKKLESS The government's . brief before the Supreme Court .sharply denounced the jurisdictional strike. "An employer who finds himself the victim of such a strike is powerless to remedy the situation," it .says. "There is no concession '.'iti can make which will stop the attack on hi.s business. Similarly, the union whose relations with the employer the other union seeks to disrupt has no weapon other than ruthless economic warfare to defend itself against Lhe aggressive tactics, of those who would destroy it. "If unions grow with ihe efficiency and ability of their leaders to gain advantages i'or labor, good union leadership may be cx- pected k . But if a union is permitted to expand through the mere brutal "use of power against neutral employers, there will be a premium on ruthless and coercive leadership Consequently, it is essential to the growth of an intelligent -labor movement that competing unions should not succeed or fail solely their ability asainst each other." resignation will become effective Dec. 15. His successor will be named shortly. Mr. Macnab said he wa.s considering another scouting offer, Settler of Old West Defends "Billy the Kid" GLENCOE, N. M. (UP) — Spirit and feeling ,of many of those who helped .settle the Old West was reflected when George W. Coe, 84 who traveled across the Southwes 1 in a covered wagon CU years ago .said that the New Mexico outlaw "Billy the Kid," was a "necessarj Clement" in the building of th Western Empire. COG is the author of "Frontie ••ighter," a story of the youthfu Mexico badman who killed 2 nen before he was 20 years old. Although he was lawless and accused of many crimes. Billy the Kid had many staunch supporters among old settlers of the Southwest.
