Newspaper Publisher* Aai'n "SATtTBDAT, OCTOBER 15, 1949 Embarrassing For Joe In Russia the average factory hand works half a day for a loaf of bread and a day for a pound of beef. Two months of toil are required to get the purchasing power for a suit of clothes, "half wool. • In America the man in similar lines of labor works five minutes for a loaf of bread, a half hour for a pound of beef,40 minutes for a pound of butter. A man can earn a good woolen suit in 25 hours, a woman a dress in 13 hours. These are the findings of two Norwegians who visited this country as the delegates of Norway's trade unions. This is an old story in the United States. The value of the Norwegian finding is that it Spreads the word to people right up against the iron curtain. Who -would want to work half a day for a loaf of bread under beneficient communism when he can acquire the same food in five minutes working under the cruel, warmongering capitalists Fish Gardens Back in depression times Oklahoma's colorful governor, "Alfalfa Bill" Murray, proposed that Oklahoma farmers be encouraged by public funds to construct catfish ponds as a source of food and revenue for distressed families. Time marches on. Now some Asiatic biologists in a solemn report propose to interest the United Nations in a fish farming project for Asiatics. It is said that 2,000 to 4,000 pounds of TUh can be produced each year per acre. Fish culture would play the same role in Asia as kitchen ~ardens in other parts of the world. A fish pond instead of a kitchen garden sounds inviting. It is surely more pleasant to bait a hook and loll comfortably in the shade waiting for results- than it is to invite fracture of the vertebrae in attempts to coax the vegetables along. Of course, the garden yields a varied diet, which Is more than can be said for a fish pond. CIO Schism Next two or three weeks may be crucial in the conflict between !eft and right wings within the CIO. The climax probably will Tome at the CIO convention in Cleveland Oct. 31 when, according to indications, left wing union may secede from the CIO or be expelled. The gap between the two factions has been widening ever since last fall, when the leftists defied national CIO leaders who supported Truman and came out For Henry Wallace. In recent months the CIO and Philip Murray, its president, have been the objects of much criticism by the left wingers. They have charged that Murray has permitted raiding of their unions by right wing unions. They have also contended that Murray has not been militant enough in driving for a fourth round wage increase. Last month the convention of the left wing United Electrical. Radio and Machine Workers, CIO, served demands on Murray which called for cessation of raiding and (JIO interference. The executive board of UE was authorized to withhold its per capita tax—tantamount to secession—if Murray does not accede. Spokesmen close to Murray have made it clear that the demands are "impossible". These CIO aides emphasize that the schism between right and left is fundamental and that the basic issue is the refusal of 11 dissident left v.-ing unions to carry out the decisions of" the CIO's executive board. They say the showdown will come in Cleveland. If secession or expulsion of left wing groups occurs, a new battle for the loyalty of rank-and-filers will ensue. It. will involve raiding, organizational battles and a. ruthless drive by each group to outdo the other in contract negotiations. There will then be four main groups In the American union movement, American Federation of Labor, CIO, United Mine Workers and the Left Wing. The public will have an interest in any internecine war that follows If it is true that in division there is weakness. Two To Please The No. 2 Harry of Blair House, Gen. Harry Vaughan, has a mouth big enough to put his foot into and frequently demonstrates, His latest exhibition of this ungainly knack was before a group of veterans representatives, when he unrepentantly said: "I'm considered in many circles to be very unethical and I'm sure I'll ^continue to be I've made various suggestions as to what other people can do. You can place your own interpretation on that." There is no doubt the genera! is a very ethical man—according to his own lights. And he certainly doesn't hide his lights under a bushel. "There are only two people I have to please," he told the veterans, "Mr. Truman and Mrs. Vaughan. Evidently he pleases both of them. They are sticking to him. But the American people, who are down in Vaughan's book as folks he needn't bother to please, may feel that Mr. Truman, at least, should be thinking of getting a divorce from the general.
