Lewis, president of the Inde pendent United Mine Workers, and Robert C. Tyson, chairman of United States Steel CorpVc finance committee, spoke Ttffed by employers regulated, before a Senate Labor Subcom mittee against legislation to require reports and disclosure of financial operations by employee health, welfare, pension and in urance funds. Lewis conceded tnere have been some scandals in the han dling of welfare funds. But he said there are laws to deal with dishonesty, and that dishonesty isn't confined to a few individ uals in the labor movement. I'm deeply concerned," said the shaggy-browed boss of the miners union, "about the en croachment of the state into the! field of the voluntary associa tions of citizens. I do not believe that the republic . . . can regi ment these associations, either in whole or in part, without of necessity expanding its .powers to a point where it will become a police state in truth and in fact "The labor unions must be Telffree Without naming anyone, Lgwis DBdDMJS VALUJES ORANGE JUICE K FLORIDA COLD. . . . ..... . . , JSWIFTIIKIG IE!

Lewis went on, that they want funds man too, but if Congress' wont do that, "regulate us anyway but do it quick. It must be stopped and it must be made impossible tor us to rob our own members." .Tyson said U.S. Steel feels "there is no evidence of any need of public supervision of welfare funds," although a minority-may require some scrutiny. If there is to be supervision. he said it should be through extension of that already begun by the states. NEW PLAN Action Urged To End State Water Split SANTA BARBARA - IW County counsel Harold W. Kennedy today proposed an' "action program" to get the $1,500,000! Feather River Project under way. In a speech the Los Angeles County Supervisors Assn.; Ken nedy urged that a legislative interim committee begin work immediately so that the State water rights issue can be settled this year. Kennedy said a joint commit tee made up of nine assemblymen and nine senators "carefully chosen to give a fair .representation of all sections' and from both - political parties" should study all constitutional amendments on the water question, and agree on specific language by Sept 15. Jury Jo Review Study On Part-Time Students HAYWARD June 21 -The newly-formed Alameda County Grand Jury committee on edu cation will review a study of, the need for high school programs which would allow stu dents to jwork part time. " Meeting with the Alameda County Board of Education here last . night, the grand jurors asked for copies of the study report when it is completed June 30. Dr. Max Berg is surveying the part-time school proposals for the Alameda County Schools De partment The federal govern ment has provided $3,975 tor the study and the county schools 1,987. Dr. Vaughn Seidel, county schools superintendent, said there are three major phases of the study. Can and will indus try cooperate; will local high schools put the proposals in ef fect and will labor unions co operate? - Seidel said there is no inten tion to upset labor rules, provide extra profit for , employers or violate child labor laws. How ever, he said, many students would - probably profit more from part-time work than full-time compulsory school attend ance if problem areas can be solved. , The committee is headetl by. C. Graham Nissem of Livermort and includes Mrs. L H. Cava, naugh, Alameda; Homer Bern is, former executive director of the Boy Scout Council; Mrs. Mr-jorie MacNeur of Oakland, and Winfleld Benner of Oakland. TWINKLER TILE R.l.tM- FtrfMt. .
