FRIDAY, OCTOBER 24, 1952 THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS Peter EtKon Washington Column GOP OPPOSITION, MONEY WOES, PLAGUE SOUTHERN DEMOCRATS By PETER EDSON NEA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON — (NEA) — Republican hopes of winning several Southern states in the presidential race are buoyed up by a couple of new factors in Dixie politics. The first is that the regular Southern Democratic organizations have never had any opposition from the Republicans before Democratic leaders don't know what to do with this opposition, and they're running scared. Any little show of Eisenhower enthusiasm is blown up to the proportions of a major catastrophe and causes a yell to Washoington for help. The second factor is that because of tlje dispute over tidelands oil, a lot of the big money from Texas and Louisiana oil men in particular is going to the Republicans. In years past it has always gone to the Democrats. That makes the Democratic campaign in the South harder to wage. Im stead of taking money out of the South, the Democrats this year are having to pour it in. And they haven't much to pour. * * * * Latest size-up on how the campaign is going: There's nothing to smear but smear itself. * » * * Sen. Robert F. Kerr of Oklahoma, who wanted the Democratic presidential nomination for himself, has finally gotten over his disappointment and gone campaigning for the Stevenson-Sparkman ticket in the Southwest, peddling his usual line of medicine- show wisecracks. Here's one he pulled at Waco, Tex.: "Senator Nixon said last Saturday night that he had to win this election, so he would be in a position to drive from Washington all the second-rate crooks. I guess he meant those who took in less than $18,000." * • * * U. S. Communist Party will cut the sorriest figure of its 32-year history in this year's elections. Eighty of the party's top leaders have been indicted by the U. S. government for violation of' the Smith act. This law, aimed against those seeking to overthrow the American form of government, was constitutional in 1951. Thirty- one Reds have bee nconvicted un- i der this act and 13 more are on trial in Hawaii and Pennsylvania. In addition, the U. S. Commie party is on the run financially. The Daily Worker is indulging in one of its periodic appeals for funds to keep going. And the party treasury has been drained by the year-long fight against registration before the Subversive Activities Control Board. In addition to whatever fees were paid the party lawyers, Vito Marcantonio and John Abt, they had to buy 14,000 pages of testimony manuscript at 40 cents a page, which cost them $5600. They're screaming about it. • • • * All during the campaign, the Republicans have been beating Democratic presidential candidate Adlai Stevenson over the head for this pre-convention statement: "I have no ambition for the nomination. I have no fitness, temperamentally, mentally, or physically for the job. I just don't want to be nominated." But now, at the end of the campaign, Republican National Committee headquarters has come up with a printed statement that, Ike's real thoughts run like this: " 'For myself, I certainly don't want to be President of the United States I did not so much seek the office — my thought is that many people who thought the nation needed a change sought me, and perhaps a leadership hot predicated upon political partisanship.' " • • • • Political maneuvers often backfire, but it's unusual when they backfire twice — oace each way. That's what happened in the statement by the 23 Columbia University professors who criticized California Sen. Dick Nixon 's $18,000 extra expense fund as a "vicious example." Defenders of Senator Nixon were quick to point out that nine of the professors were listed in files of the House of Representatives Un-American Activities Committee. To this the critics of Senator Nixon prmoptly replied in effect, "Columbia University! Oh, yes! Isn't that the school that General Eisenhower was president of? Is he the man who is going to root the left-wingers out of government? Why didn't he root them out of the Columbia faculty, to show how it could be done?" • • • • There will be at least 69 new FARMERS NOTICE! DO YOU WANT THE TOPS IN CORN PICKERS?

Heffington, Owner CUT YOUR FOOD BUDGET LICENSED UNDER THB ILL. PURE FOOD DIV. TO ALL RETAIL CLERKS OF MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS At you know in the past years the committee of the retail merchants has met with the labor committee of your union and has negotiated agreements from time to time as to wages, hours and working conditions which have been adopted by all members of the Merchants Association. The present contract expired on September 15, 1952 and more than sixty days prior to September 15, 1952, the Union notified us that it desired to discuss terms and conditions for a new union contract. These discussions were had between the labor committee of your union and the labor committee of the employers of the Mt. Vernon Merchants' Association. While negotiations were in progress and being conducted by Mr. Joe Meissner, State Conciliator, the union committee without any advance notice and without any reason given called off all negotiations and walked out of the last meeting held between the committees representing the Merchants' Association and your local union. At all times we as your employers have negotiated in good faith? at all times we recognized your right of collective bargaining and the right of you as a member of a union to be represented by a union not only for collective bargaining purposes at the time of the expiration of the union contract but during the periods when contracts were entered into in good faith which were in existence. For the economic protection of ourselves as well as for the economic protection of all stores effected whose employes and fellow union members of yours, are on strike, we feel that we must look out for our own interests as an employer. We are therefore advising you that there will be a temporary interruption in your relationship with us as employee and employer. After this date, we shall not be open for business. It is our intention to remain closed until the labor committe of your union notifies our association that it desires in good faith to accept our notice to discussions of collective bargaining for a new association and union contract. At the present time we are not able to accept the conditions defined by the labor committee of your union. We also want to call to your attention that your labor committee has rejected the proposal offered by our association. Rest assured that we have enjoyed our employer-employee relationship with you at all times. Please arrange to contact your employer who is anxious to pay you your salary from your last regular pay data to date. The temporary severence of your employment by us is the only method ancillary to our rights of collective bargaining. This situation has been forced upon your employers because of the action taken by your union. Your employer through the Merchants' Association Committee is anxious and invites a meeting with the committee representing your local union for the purpose of entering into negotiations in good faith for the purpose of effecting a fair and reasonable contract that is reasonable to the members of your local and is one that is consistent with good economics on behalf of the employers.
