LEWIS WONT DISSOLVE CIO Declares Opposition to Dissolution of Group for Labor Unity NEW YORK, (fP -- John L. Lewis firmly declared himself Wednesday against any dissolution of the Congress for Industrial Organizations "as the price for labor unity" in this country. "The CIO and its many organizations," he shouted, in an address to 350 delegates to a tri-district anthracite conference, "do not propose to dissolve themselves and cut themselves up into a multitude of pieces as the quid pro quo of becoming associated with t h e American Federation of Labor." (The dictionary translation of quid pro quo is "one thing for another.") Referring to the renewal of peace parleys with the AFL at Washington, D. C., on Friday, Lewis declared: "If peace comes, well and good. Labor will be the beneficiary and the country will rejoice. "If peace on an honorable basis fails to come, then the CIO will change its policy." Lewis accused the AFL of "foul blows." NOTICE OP THE APPOINTMENT OF ADMINISTRATOR STATE OF IOWA.
