J'AGE 2— NAfGATUCK NEWS (CONN.), TUESDAY, NOV. 8, Life Ebbing Away DREW PEARSON ON The WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND Drew Pearson Says: Lewis Is Desperate Over Revolt In UMW; U. S. And Great Britain Row Over China; Florence, S. C., Citizens Repay Negro Western Union Messenger. Washington.—Inside reason why John L. .Lewis is trying so desperately to settle with the coal operators is that his United Mine Workers union is torn with rank-and- file revolt. Many coal miners deeply resented Lewis's offer to contribute funds !o CIO steelworkers from the UMW treasury at a time when the miners themselves are destitute and hungry. Also, there is widespread rank-np.d-file bitterness over Lewis's dissipation of the miners' pcn- sion-and-welfare fund. The rebellion against Lewis is strongest in Virginia and West Virginia, where several local mine unions have voted by secret ballot to KO back to work. However, the operators refused to reopen, fearing possible violence and bloodshed by Lewis' strong-arm squads. Other miners, rather than have their families go hungry in the prolonged strikes, have actually uoni; to work in non-union mines in Vl/ginia and western Kentucky. Row Over China The hottest diplomatic row between the United States and Great Britian in recent years is taking place backstage over the touchy subject of China. President Truman and Secretary Acheson got wind of the fact that a lac^e British diplomatic delegation has been secretly conferring in Pieping with the Chinese Communists in order to negotiate British recognition of the Red government. This is a direct violation of the Bevin-Acheson agreement made in New York a month ago in which both agreed that no deals would bo made \yith the Chinese Reds without first consulting each other, together with Prance, Holland and Belgium. When the State Department learned that this agreement had been violated, Secretary Acheson and the other foreign ministers sent a scorching joint note secretly to British Foreign Minister Bevin denouncing his government for trafficking with the Chinese Reds. Eevin, replying, admitted his country's guilt, but brazenly stated that the move was necessary. However. Britain, he condescended to say, would keep its allies informed of its activities from here on in. Acheson and Truman are still boiling. Servants of Brotherhood Southern race disturbances or KKK floggings make sensational headlines, while the littic acts of kindness between white and colored people seldom get In the newspapers. In Florence, South Carolina, for instance, a Negro Western Union messenger, Jamea E. Jones, has spent his extra time and energy in recent years collecting money for the March of Dimes. James Jones has been so -energetic -anti so devoted that he ha» won the admiration of all citizens in Ma community and last year this columnist nom.inu.ted him as a servant of Brotherhood. The other day, however, the man who had been helping others himself was taken sick. He was sent to the hospital with a complication of various ailments, leaving •A wife and seven children without funds. Promptly the white citizens of Florence started a campaign to help him. Last January, Jones collected $2,576 to help the March of Dimes. Now his friends are trying to top this mark to help him.
