OCT. ft lfl<n DREW PEARSON ON "fhe WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND Drew Pearson Says: Walter Reuther's Grandstanding Postponed Settlement Of UAW-Ford Strike; Ex-Senator Joe Ball Returns To "Washington As A Lobbyist; Big Business Disguises Itself In Sheep's Clothing. Washington—Inside story of the 'ord-1'nited Auto Worker agree- Minnesota is drawing only around ment on pensions was that it could have been settled exactly one earlier—except for one thing, ers. •week "Walter Reuther didn't want it settled too easily. On Friday, Sept. 23, the headed chief of the United Auto Workers suddenly broke off his negotiations. Both sides had been «^-^<meu stiALisiii wnen ne was in pretty much in agreement. Every- the Senate, you can get some idea thing was going well. But sudden- k° w distasteful this lobbying job — - - . _ _ . _ t s going to be—also how broke Joe These are the ship owners who don't get government subsidies, red- an d part of Joe's job is to see that they do get them. If you recall how vigorously Joe fought against so-called "statism" when he was in ly Reuther told John Eugas, chief negotiator for Henry. Ford: "I can't come to an agreement •without first threatening you with a strike." So negotiations were broken off. Strike news, flared in the headlines. A strike deadline was even issued for midnight. Thursday, Sept. 29. Henry Ford had been entirely willing to give the>- Auto Workers an old-age pension of S100 a month including government pensions, -but the wily Walter Reuther wanted to sell his •jnion on the idea that he was •winning a tough victory. Note—When the strike deadline ,1-olled around on Sept. 29v the agreement provided for almost the same terms as were discussed on Friday, Sept. 23. But the intervening strike hullabaloo had helped Rputher cement his hold on the •union, though disrupting relations between the union and the Ford company. Joe Ball Becomes Lobbyist Nobody, much ias heard of Minnesota's sad-faced Joe Ball since he was defeated Jast year. At first Joo toyed with the idea of becoming a newspajper columnist—almost a tougher racket than being a senator-. But that didn't seem to pan out, so now Joe. after some unhappy months of indecision, has turned up as a lobbyist. Joe's job is quite a modest one when you consider his once-high pl?.ce in G. O. P. counsels, and wnen you consider that some lobbyists rake down around fifty 'grand. For the ex-senator from FLOWERS For All Occadou MELBOURNE'S FLOWER SHOP Itt RUBBER AVENTIC „. . $8.000 as the lobbyist for the As sociation of American Ship Own- must have been to take it. However, Joe's bosses, the un- Bubsidized ship owners, have pulled a neat trick which should materially lessen his work. In fact, it's one of the neatest tricks ever pulled in a town which has seen all sorts of lobbying tricks. For they managed to put their former lobbyist, Lynne Mote, in as assistant counsel of the House Merchant Marine and Fisheries Committee. Embarrassing: Questions ~~ Mote, who once received $8,000 as a lobbyist for the ship owners, now receives $8,800 from the congressional committee which writes the legislation the ship owners want passed. A bill—HW 5346--is now before Congress which would greatly expand government subsidies and grant ship owners more favorable tax depreciation. Lynue Mote, as lobbyist for the ship owners, helped with this bill. Now that the bill is before the House Merchant- Marine committee, Mote, as counsel for that committee, will advise on passing, that bill. Mr. Mote, asked whether he was able to lobby any bills through Congress -while employed by the Association of American Ship Owners, replied. "No, I wasn't a very effective lobbyist." "Do you think you will be more effective in your present position?" "That is an embarrassing question." "Do you think it is a healthy pattern for a man to be lobbying for legislation one week and to be employed by the committee writing that legislation the next week?" "I don't think I am establish^ g any pattern," Mr. Mote replied Some members or the Merchant Marine Committee don't take quite the same view of it. But anyway, thanks to Mote's promotion, sad- faced Joe Ball now has a job. Big Business Masquerades Tt looks like big business was now being disguised in sheep's cloth ing.
