10 - Wed., May 26, 1965 Redlands Dally Facts \ jUR ANCESTORS National Window Johnson ready fo qet his amendment support oy Quincy By Lyle C. Wilson United ress Internationa 1 There remains a reasonable doubt that President Johnson is fiercely determined to twist the arms that may need twisting in the 89th Congress to obtain amendment of the Taft-Hartley Act. If ever a president spoke soflly in proposing a major legislative action, the President spoke softly last week in asking repeal of Taft-Hartley's section 14-B. It is quite possible, of course, that LBJ also is carrying a big stick. There is some cause to believe, however, that there is neither a big stick nor any belligerent intent to compel Congress to do the bidding of big labor on Taft-HarUey. Labor leaders claim with much justice that big labor was a major factor in the Johnson-Humphrey triumph last November and in the election to Congress of a fat Democratic majority. Top item in the payoff for campaign help demanded now by the labor leaders is repeal of section 14-B which permits the states to enact right-to-work laws banning the union shop. Promises Win Labor President Johnson knew the payoff terms wlien he was campaigning for election last year. Campaigner LBJ and his mate, HHH, won labor cheers and votes with their campaign promises while the Republican nominee was solemnly telling chill audiences that section 14-B represented a basic civil right and should not be repealed. The union leaders and their friends got their revenge on Barry Goldwater at tlie polls and the LBJ-HHH ticket got their voles. If President Johnson is cool at heart to the repeal proposal, it could be in the unlikely cause of consistency or in an equally unlikely ethical deference to principle. Repeal of Taft-Hartley has become Democratic dogma over the years. For the Democratic party to reject and to revile the Taft- Hartley Act and all of its parts was indeed a switch. It is no less a switch for the President of the United States. LBJ was serving his sixth term in the House of Representatives on June 4, 1947, when Taft-Hartley passed the House by a lopsided vote of 320-to-79. A majority of House Democrats voted for Taft - Hartley then and Rep. Lyndon B. Johnson (D-Tex.) was among them. A sterner lest was to come. President Truman vetoed the Taft-HarUey Act on June 20, 1947, incorporating in his veto message tlie preoise arguments of the CIO protest to HST demanding that he veto. Rep. Johnson and his fellow House Democrats beat down the Truman veto in fine style. The vote was 331-to-83. House Democrats split: 106 to override the veto; 71 to sustain it. Rep. Johnson voted to override. Repeal Moves Fail Enactment of Taft - Hartley has been followed by nearly 20 years of all-out union effort to repeal or to amend the act. These efforts consistently have been beaten down. Big labor has refined its target now. It has taken aim at a single part of Taft-Hartley, section 14-B. No state is compelled to outlaw the union shop but 19 have done so with right - to - work laws. These R-T-W laws guarantee to the worker a basic civil right, the right to join a union or not. The union bosses Prices Effective May 27 thru June 2 (THURSDAY THRU WEDNESDAY) "C'mon! We're in California now—let's take the top down!" Close call for deputy SAN ANDREAS, Calif. (UPI) —Calaveras County Deputy Sheriff Fred Kern was patrol- ing a local reservoir with a companion in a boat this week when they noticed a rattlesnake swimming toward them. Kern tried to bat the reptile away with his oar. But the snake wapped himself around the oar and began working his way toward the deputy's lap. Just as the two men were about to jump overboard, the rattler unwTapped himself from the oar and slid gently back into the water. promise revenge on politicos who defend 14-B. On the recent record of President Johnson and his party with respect to civil rights and section 14-B, it would appear that some civil rights are Tighter than others, politically! Firemen's wives reverse commissioner BRADLEY BEACH, N.J. f UPI)—Firemen from Co. 3 are free today to look at the 15 nude girlie pictures in their clubroom in peace. After the firemen complained, tlie borough reversed an order by pubUc property Commissioner Peter J.G. Flood to police to remve the pictures because tliey were lewd. The pictures, some 3 feet high and some posted on the wall for as long as 30 years, were found by the fire compny's womaen's auxiliary to be unobjectionable, able. "None of the firemen's wives ever objected to them," said Mrs. Clara Gellington, aaxiliary president.
