MONDAY, DECEMBER 27, 193? BLYTHEV1LLE (ARK,) COURIER NEWS Assume Lodge Duties Tonight LITMMCE Says Administration Attack Makes Successful Fjforl Very Unlikely .V.Y RODNEY DTJTCHF.R Courier News Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON, Dec. 27.—The proposed Ludlow amendment to prevent Congress from declaring •war without a permissive papular referendum is more than likely to ke killed' by the amlnlstralion's recent nvass attack upon It. Nevertheless, some 218 congressmen have signed a petition to bring H up for a vote against the wishes of both. the White House and the conservative House leadership, and the fight is by no I Mrs. Raleigh S.vlmter Mrs. II.

The issue involved is simply whether Congress wants to tie the hands of tlie President and Secretary of State when they play international politics, or whether the President shall continue to have the privilege of getting the nation into war -without tlie specific consent of tlie people. It's No New Trick The Constitution says the power to declare war shall reside only with Congress, but every student and authority on the question knows—and most of them have pointed out- that a President can create a war situation and actually wage .war without congressional consent. Fighting a war without declaring war Is no new Japanese or Italian trick. Various Latin American republics learned about It from .Uncle Sam long ago. A declaration of war by Con- 'gress without presidential approval Is unthinkable. So is the is one swift action to 'set up a military dictatorship, send millions of men. to death in foreign lands, open the sluice- gates io billions of war loans to other nations and burden down the nation with more than double Ihe present national cleat." H is designed to "preserve democracy." But there's only a chance in a hundred that the LaFollette, Clark or Ludlow amendment will get into the Constitution.

There Is no reason to suppose that Roosevelt plans to take the country Into war.

'Also, even persons who trust Roosevelt implicitly must concede the. fact that there win be other presidents; Favor LaFollette Amendment .The Ludlow amendment simply would require a favorable referendum vote in advance of a con- 'gressional declaration of war, except in case of invasion.

Fight On For Control Of Workers By NBA Smlce PORTLAND, Ore., Dec. 27.—For nearly five months, "labor trouble" has paralyzed the lumber Industry of the Columbia basin. Now it is beginning to alarm the entire Pacific northwest, In fear (lint him- wr markets will be permanently ost to British Columbia or other regions which can produce. This Is no ordinary "labor trouble." There Is no crucial dispute ""h emnloycrs. It Is not even an old-fashioned "Jurkdletional dis- nite." Tt Is simply a knock-down, Irag-out fight between C. I. O. and A. p. of L, unions as to who shall mve the lumber-mill workers. This Is one of the crucial Bltu- itlons. failure to adjust which :aused collapse of the effort nt Washington to reconcile the A.

O, And while this paralyzing slrug- 3le goes Into Its fifth month, thousands of loggers are forced on re- let and public costs are increased 135,000 a month for relief and ex- :ra policing. More than 2000 lumber workers and thousands more ndependent Industries are idle.

Senator Robert M. proposed referendum LaFollette's amendment men- at several points, the lower Hudson river watershed continues to Is much more to the point, and if Congress adopts any such amendment it will follow the lines of LaFtollette's or that of Senator Bennett Champ Clark, which is similar. LaFollette's proposal would forbid the President to "wage war- without a declaration by Congress. Except in case of Invasion or u military expedition against the United States or its possessions, or against any North American or Caribbean nation, the LaFWlette amendment would require a referendum in the question of a declaration of war. The referendum also would decide whether Congress should be authorized to conscript men for military service overseas. Only a Bare Chance LaFollette's amendment Is aimed at "the almost unrestricted power of any executive to create a war situation which Congress must accept," and the power of be a mecca for spori.5 and commercial fishermen, a state Conservation Department survey has disclosed. Sturgeon and shad were found in virtually all sections of the river, while below Poughkeepsie striped bass were found in such numbers that the section was considered an important spawning ground for the prized angling and commercial fish. A plentiful supply of food was cited as the principal reason for the abundancy of fish. Snails, clams, worms, and midge larvae thickly populate the coves north of Poughkeepsie. In the brackish waler section of the river, crustaceans are the food supply. Fancy Boxes Collected AUSTIN, Tex.

During and directly afler the World War, the I. w. W. had such a grip on the logging 'and timber industry in the northwest that In many sections It was unsafe to try to work without the "red card." When NRA came along, he A. P. of L. revived Its Sawmill and Timber Workers' Union In a big wav, and staged many strikes In .1935. Opposition to tills organizing wave was provided by the Loyal Legion of Lumbermen and Loggers, an independent outfit. Then in 193G. when the c. I. O. began organizing on a broad scale It started the International Woodworkers. Last August 3000 sawmill workers bolted the A. P. of L. union I and went over to the c. T. o. It I was a "raid," cried A. P. of L.I officials. It was a free change-over responded the c. I. o. . Declared a Boycott Tlie A. p. of L. lumber nnd log- eing unions are closely allied to the Brotherhood of Carpenters and •Mners and to the Teamsters' Union. These promptly declared a boycott of the mills, the teamsters refusing to haul lumber to. or products from, c, I. O.-maimed mills. The carpenters refused to work on c. r. O.-produced lumber. Portland, 45 per cent of whose payrolls are directly dependent on lumber, felt the shock Tlie A.

But the A. P. of L. pickets remained out- 'slde, and the boycott remained in effect. The West Oregon Lumber Co. also defied the boycott by reopening, and plans are under was to ship lumber by water after Jan 1, thus avoiding dependence on teamsters. ''Ben T. Oscorne, secretary of the Oregon state labor federation (A F*. of L.) has given no sign o yielding. "They can open the mills but they can't open Ihe markets. 1 he said. "This is a fight to a finish The C. I. O. has chosen (his area • as' the battleground, and we ac cept the challenge."
