COURIER NEWS Triangle Must Be Solved I Business-Government - Labor Triangle Must Be Settled, Says Writer BY JOHN T. FLYNN Foremost among the prospects for the coming year for business men are those questions which affect the relation of business and the government. On one hand business Is looking forward to a relaxation of government hostility In various fields. For instance, reports appear of changes in the Securities and Exchange Commission which will bring into control commissioners who favor friendly action with Wall Street. Also, 'the movement to modify the policies of various commissions, such as the National Labor Rela- -icns Board, keeps going at, a strong pace. ' Business sees in the *ar situation an opportunity to mitigate the severity of its Veln- ; lions with the government. On /the other Hand there is a growing uneasiness about the rising movement to invoke dictatorial powers in Washington in the interest of the maximum production for \vnr. The argument is made i:i 1-igh Peaces Hint it is difficult 10 >;<x large producers to shut down on their regular peacetime schedules when Hint; is a growing demand for their pioductr-evea though ihfct demand arises as an Indirect result of defense spending. It is o.', according 10 this argument, that the government I-.AV? the power to say to fi manufacturer that his tools or equip- mr,n. or plum—or perhaps nis mi- terfnh, arc essential to •:l2';eviS2 and that therefore he must shift his production to defense purposes. Manufacturers, of course, are opposed to this. They will probably . makcx profits out o: Uie war business, but they fear two things: First, they fear the disruption of their regular business. Second, they aic afraid of the establishment of dictatorial controls that mav never be wholly withdrawn. Thus there is the puil of two contradictory forces—the tendency to relax certain types of controls In the interest of production and to intensify others for the same reason. Generally the attitude of, business opposes the central gov- [ eminent wartime-controls unless war is declared, . Against; this is -the hope .of .employers thai labor will come' in' for some disciplining. Any number of strikes—and they are beginning to appear—may well ;set off.a very vocal and -powerful demand for control of unions. Producers point out that notli-' ing will touch off a rising of pro- ' duction costs quicker thnn labor I costs getting out of hand. ( Therefore there is a growing I and tightening demand for some [action to .put a ceiling over labor I costs. So here again is another contradiction—an eagerness for curbing labor without curbing employers, j The whole subject is full of dan- Miseriesrtfll II9 of Head UULU5 THURSDAY, JANUARY 2, 1941 Tonight Is *Last Chance to Enroll For Air Course Blyiheville youths who want to learn to fly without cost may enroll in . afree training course tonight when the first meeting of the CAA program is held in the City hall -at 7 o'clock.
