1'AfiK a—NAPGATITCK NK.WS (CONN.). T|!KSI)AV. OCT. zr>, Illl!) DREW PEARSON ON The WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND Drew Pearscn Says: Vice President Barldey May "Spend Some Time" In Missouri; John L. Lewis' Chickens Hatched Ee- cent Coal-Steel Strikes; Gen. Bradley Scolds Senators. Va.shington. Still coy about his i — > —. _ .- . St. Louis romance. Vice President Barkloy blushingly admitted to the Senate before adjourning that IK- "may" spend -some time in Mis- Fuuri instead of heading right back !o Kentucky. I The question was brought up I by .Missouri's usually humorless Senator Forrest Donnell after a fellow Republican. Senator Wayne Morse of Oregon, assured that the vice president would be welocme in his .state any time — even if he is a Ijemocntt. V.'ith a twinkle in his eye, Donnell broke in: "I should like to invite the vice president most graciously to visit .Missouri occasionally." "The present occupant of-- the chair appreciates that invitation, and in view of its sincerity, the chair may accept it," smiled Barkley. "I will say to the vice president that I was quite confident that he would, when I extenUcd the invitation." replied Donnell. "The chair would like to state," replied the vice-president, "that if he does accept the invitation, it will not be in his capacity as vice- president of the United States." Then he blushed—just a bit. John 1.. Lewis' Chickens The public has forgotten it and the J. P. Morgan-Andrew Mellon interests would like to forget it, but they have themselves largely to blame for the nation's now serious coal and steel strikes. The incident they would like to forget goes back to the summer of 1947 when John L. Lewis sat down with the biggest coal operators in the country and was both surprised and pleased when they gave hira a 45-cents-an-hour wage increase, plus welfare fund, plus almost everything else he - asked for even including- some nullifications of the Taft-Hartley act. The companies which led in handing Lewis this bonanza were J. P. Morgan's U. S. Steel corporation which owns the biggest captive coa! mines in the U. S. A., and the. Mellon-controlled Pittsburgh Con- colidation Coal company. Following their lead, smaller coal operators had to follow suit. This gift to Lewis came as a shock to the rest of the industry because only six months before, Harry Truman had thrown everything he had into a court battle against Lewis and won. Most of the nation had applauded. Further more, only one year earlier, the coal operators had bitterly criticized Secretary of the Interior Krug because he gave Lewis an increase of 18 1-2 cents — exactly the same given in other industries/ Battles Diabetes Yet, on top of this, Ben Fairless of U. S. Steel and George Humphrey of Pittsburgh Consolidation Coal handed Lewis 45 cents an hour extra plus welfare fund, etc. Furthermore, the workers didn't have STORM WINDOWS & DOORS NEW ENGLAND SALES CO ALSCO 282 Bank St., Waterbury Phone 4-9219 Dr. Michael Somogyi DISCOVERER of a new dietary treatment for diabetes, in which insulin injections are either reduced or :ompletely eliminated, Dr. Michael Somogyi (above) is shown in the laboratory of the St. Louis Jewish Hospital. Announcement that 4,000 diabetics who followed his method are getting along without the use sf insulin has attracted nationwide ittention. (International) to contribute to the welfare fund. It all came from the employer. Mixing Politics and Wages The hidden motives for this sudden surrender, it was reported at the time, were (1) that Lewis in return would line up labor for Tom Dewey and against Truman; and (2) the steel industry was able to pass the increased cost on to the consumer. In brief, Truman had kicked Lewis in the teeth; now- powerful Republicans wanted -to show how they could stroke his mane. But the effect of this bonanza to Lewis still is reverberating through the auto industry, the aluminum industry, and the banked furnaces of the steel industry. The Mellon's Aluminum Corporation would not be shut by a strike today, had not their played Pittsburgh consolidation politics with Lewis two SCULLY, Florist Flowers for Every Occasion 480 BAUJWIN ST.

Nor would General Motors and Chrysler be up against tough pension demands today. For their gift to Lewis set a pattern which every other labor leads? had to duplicate, and now this makes it impossible for Murray to take anything less from U. f5. Steel than Lewis got from U S Steel. Obviously, if Lewis'miners don't have to contribute to a welfare fund, Phil Murray's steel workers aren't going to. contribute. But the boys in Wall Street didn't look ahead far enough when they rushed through their mine agreement two years ago. Gen. Bradley Flares It's nothing new for' a Congressional committee to call the brass hats on the carpet, but it is new for a brass hat to call senators on the carpet. The man who reversed this rule is General Omar Bradley, the nation's top military commander, who scorched the Senate Appropriations committee for leaking secret information to the press.
