' Something New Added The Geimans nre being rttisaur'ed about the shipping situation | with a fict of figures that may or may,not be po- curate, so far as it goes. They are told that the allies had 53,800,000 tons-of shipping when the war started, out)of which 30,400,000 toiis.hus been 1 sunk and 2,500,000 tons definitely disabled. This would leave 20,90^,000 (pns available to the United Nations. • _ l But how about the 8,'000,p60 tons built in the United States last year? How about a few 'millions built>/England, Scotland, Caiula, Auslritlia V • Conceding the liasic Nazi estimates, if we do, their subs still hiwe at lekst 50 per cent m6re allied shipping to handle than Hitler's propagandists care to mention. voted lo the ideal ot getting'all ^they'can grab through I he indulgence of lit. Roosevelt nnd yelling for 1 - more, ' 'i ,, nut, us Brother dreen lias explained, although affiliated unions nre expected-to adhere to. the Bcnernl policies of the AFL., they have "autonomous powers to deal with their own peculiar problems." This Is the high principle which cn- nbles the Joe Fays and,the Jlm.Boves to enjoy, nil the benefits of representation by a powerful national labor lobby, but, forbids Brother-dreci] to do more than deplore the frequent revelations thai ninny federation unions "are rotten .with racketeering mid'other forms of corruption. * » •» - ,..''. Brother Lewis, .then, would, rejoin .the AFL. wllh iiulommioiis powers, arid could be expected to make full use of Ihetn, since -liUf problems nre nothing If not peculiar. And no doiibl "unity of labor," (o which - he Is so devoted, would become n llviuu renllly—that Is, if .Brother Lewis stayed with the federation long enough to help whale the Inr out of his other old friends and former comrades In the CIO. • —Memphis J'ress-Sclmltar. pnbUcatkra In thk column «f •dltortali -Mn other nempapen do« not nactnarny MMB endoraement but Is an actoowliimiam f* a»- Urat to the sub]eeU Old Home Week This hns been' n wonderful week for the American Federation ol Labor. The International \lce presidents of two of its big unions—Joe Fay, of the Opeiatlng Engineers and Jim Bove pf the Hod Carriers—were Indicted in New York on charges of'extortlrtg $703,000 from contractors on a city water project. And John L Lewis knocked for. readmlsslon to that wing of Ihe house of labor, which, for ( the better^parl of eight years, he did hh utmost, ^.demolish. '-^ > ' i ; .•^-"Troubles', asrtjvitilnm Green may be reflecting, never come singly. At least, we seem lo detect R certain restraint in Brother Green's enthusiasm 'as he prepares lo welcome home ,lhe wanderer whom, not long ago, the AFL announced it ''wouldn't touch with a 10-foot pplc." Brother Green, perhaps,- has not entirely forgotten tlmt among the more affectionate terms applied to him by Brother Lewis in recent Jrca'rs were "pusillanimous ingrate" and "traitorous renegade," * » * ' • There are, it is said, certain questions to be ironed out before Brother Lewis, his •ImU-rhllUon ' or so coal miners, and his heterogeneous array of dairy farmers, cosmeticians, chemical workers, construction workers, etc., In District 60 of the TJMW arc absorbed Into the federation. There are, Indeed. And not the least of them, •so far as Brother Green is concerned, may well 1 be whether Brother Lewis means' to be absorbed or lo absorlJ—whether his amiable intent Is not . to toss Brother Green out an-his pious ear nnd install himself as supreme high 'ruler of tlio AFL. * .'• « » There arc other questions.i The;, federation has just reaffirmed its undying fidelity, lo the no-slrlke pledge made lo President Roosevelt titter Pearl Harbor. Brother Lewis has denounced the pledge and the President, and 41''.the moment is holding over Ihe government Ihe Ihrcat of n paralyzing coal strike unless lie is permitted to destroy the War Labor Board. Shrewd observers believe that he and Brother "Big Bill" Hwtche- son of the Carpenters—who has forgiven If 'not forgotten that the fact that Brother Lewis punched his head 'nt a federation convention In 1935—hope to lend the augmented AFL into the Republican Party in 19*4. The aims pf Brother Lewis would appear to be somewhat incompatible with those of Brother Green and his associates who remain cic- 1 lew To The Line , The conl crisis appears to be back where It was a fortnight ago. Secretary fckes continues to operate the mines on behalf of the United Slates Government, John Lewis hns once more graciously consented to permit the members 01 his work In ^hc nilnes—for a two-week period of grace. Anil the War Labor Board remains sealed unhappily on the sidelines, like n wallflower, wondering when Mr. Lewis will ask 'it lo dance. In hh telegram to John Lewis seeking assurance lhat coal mining would be uninterrupted, Mr. Tckes expressed the hope llmt "the way will .be open for Immediate collective bargaining conference. 1 ;." Mr. Lewis' liopc, expressed in reply, was that Mr. Ickcs would "instruct the coal operators of the Industry to forthwith engage in collective bargaining .conferences." • Neither of these hopes Is shared by this newspaper. On tho contrary, It seems lo us lhat Ihe lime for collective bargaining expired when the War Labor Board assumed jurisdiction over the dispute. This board has explicitly instructed the operators not lo proceed with collective bargaining until bolli parties arc ready to accept Us auspices. There is nn good rcnson to supjiost thai collective bargaining would be any more fruitful now than it was before. John Lewis' Instability docs not appear to have Increased. And the operators are apparently determined to concede nothing unless compelled to do so. The War Labor Board was established to meet precisely thLs sort of situation. It Is high time for it. lo start functioning. It 1ms at its disposal all the essential facts of the case. If John Lewis wants lo recognize its authority and conic before It to argue for his side, well and good. If he does not, the board Is perfectly capable of reaching an equitable decision without him. That decision should be reached as promptly as possible, : and 4Ihc coal dispute ishouid' be "settled In accordance wlllr it; , The maintenance of the WLB's authority, ns we have pointed oul before, Is the prime Issue in llils caso. We are glad that Mr. Ickes, In his subueiiucnt letter to LewU, took care to reo'f- nrm lhat authority. If Ihc board should be bypassed in this particular situation, It might as well be burled. And burled along with it will be labor's no-strike pledge. For other labor lenders will not be content lo petition peaceably for redress of their grievances' If they see Lewis' strong-arm tactics win results. The . War Labor Board must proceed to iacUdecisively on this cast! at once, and its decision must be unecmlv- ocably upheld with the lull power of Ihe Federal Government. — Washington Post. " '"*'' .
