BY RODNET DUtCliER Courier News and Washington Cliides Roosevelt on Bad Grammar BLYTHEVILLE, (ARK,) COURIER NEWS WASHINGTOK, Nov. 27. — The Nitional Labor Relations Board, created to enforce lubor's right to organize freely nnd bargain co! jccllvely through Its own selected agents, is under attack—especially hj- the American Federation of Laboy, which charges it with favoritism toward the c. I. o . On that charge the Weratlon largely bases its 'opjiosition to UK pending mln- imiuvc «rsge-jnaximum hour bill Counter-charge is brought that the A.,P. of L.. officially nialii- lalnng ,ll>M the C. I.

The board concluded that the companies had engaged In wifnir labor -oractices by interfering witii, restraining and coercing their employes; that the granting of the IBEW contracts wns a part of the employers' unlawful course of conduct ana that the contracts were hence invalid. Chairman Tloyd Carlisle of Consolidated Eflispn branded the findings : as "utterly unwarranted" and promised to ;observU the contracts until a federal court invalidated them if ever president Dan Tracy of IBEW said toe board's action was '^Sitased. bigoted, illegal and dictatorial,"; tmd Green said "the decision outrages the provisions of the Wagner act." • • f Permit Union Split Now It's the -c.

Although the UAW Is conceded to.have a majority of all employes among its members, those unions appear to have majorities m their cwn crafts. Craft union claims as to four -other units (were disallowed on the Trbund that thei evidence of membership I was un substantial. -.Smiths dissent held that the majority decision vested in a small employe groop choice of detcmin- ing whether, in a mass-production plant, ; a complete industrial bar- Ask _._.;ing lor a "new deal" in grammar to bring It to the level o£ that used by the men and women who mold public opinion.
