• , . Review of Rail Labor Act Asked ' fen. Ball Asserts ; 1926 Law Fails to • Settle Wage Disputes ! - >y Raymond I*hr <• WASHINGTON, May 5. (UP) — fen. Jcteph H. Hall, R., Minn., said today he thinks Congress should take a look, at the Railway Labor Act because It U no longer working '•monthly In wage disputes. He and other congressional •pokesmen on labor legislation, however, are not planning any move to deal with the threat of a railroad itrike next Tuesday. If a strike *hould come, It no doubt would generate demands for emergency - action by Congress, f Ball U chairman of the House- 6enat$ Labor Committee created by the Taft-Hartley Law docs not apply to railway disputes. ; The Joint committee will start hearings May 24 on proposals Jor amending the Taft-Hartley Law. In announcing the hearings, Ball mentioned the possibility of legislation to cope, with railway strikes in connection with proposals to re- atrlct industrywide bargaining. He told a reporter he believed the Railway Labor Act had become weaker during the war so that recommendations of fact - finding boards no longer were accepted as settlements. Those recommendations used to be equivalent to settlement by voluntary arbitration, he said, but they now have become the mere "starting point" for negotiations. Emergency board findings have lalled to result In settlement in (lie last three major railway wage disputes—in 1940. 1943 and 1M6. The emergency board procedure has .Been used since the Railway Labor Xaw was enacted In 1926. Livestock ST. LOUIS NATIONAL STOCKYARDS, May 5.
