I CHARGE FIRMS STORED ARMS Civil Liberties Group . Urges Law to Restrict Firearms in Disputes WASHINGTON, 7P)_The senate civil liberties committee said Monday "the purchasing and storing of arsenals of firearms and tear and sickening gas weapons is a common practice by large employers who refuse to bargain collectively with legitimate labor unions." The committee, headed by Senator La Follette (Prog.-Wis.), recommended legislation to prevent the use 1 of machine guns and "offensive chemical weapons" in industrial disputes. It also urged that movements of armed company police and strike guards be restricted to plant property. Corporations Large Buyers Any legislation should maintain employers' rights to protect their property, the committee added. It reported that employers purchased §1,235,312 of tear and sickening gas between 1933 and June, 1937, "chiefly during or in anticipation of strikes." "All of the largest individual purchasers are corporations," the report said, "and their totals far surpass those of large law enforcement purchasers. Republic Steel Tops List "In fact, the largest purchaser of gas equipment in the country, the Republic Steel corporation, bought four times as much as the largest law enforcement purchaser/' During the "little steel" strike of 1937, the committee said, Republic had 552 revolvers, 64 rifles with 1,325 rounds of ammunition, 245 shotguns with 5,784 rounds of shotgun shells, 143 gas guns with 4,033 gas projectiles, and 2,707 hand grenades." Depend on Disputes The committee statement outlined activities of three firms which it said sell most of the tear and sickening gas equipment-Federal Laboratories, Inc., of Pittsburgh, the Lake Erie Chemical company of Cleveland, and the Manville Manufacturing corporation of Pontiac, Mich'. "The statements of responsible officers of the munitions companies reveal that their business depends in a large measure on the existence of labor disputes and strikes," the report said. Austin, Otiumwa Listed Among the 80 corporations and individuals listed by the civil liberties committee as acquiring tear and sickening gas and gas equipment between Jan. 1, 1933, and ,June 30, 1937, were the John Mor- ;rell and company, packing company of .Ottumwa, Iowa, and ;George A. Hormel and company of Austin, Minn. . The city of Omaha was listed as the purchaser of gas and gas equipment amounting to $6,842. 3,000 Rhode Island Truckers Go on Strike PROVIDENCE, R.
