TUKSPAY, NOV. 22, 1041) T DREW PEARSON ON he WASHINGTON Mr. And Mrs. Frank Shea And Wedding Party MERRY-GO-ROUND Drew Pearson Says: Recent Strikes Proved That' Labor Disputes Can Be Dignified; One Senate Subcommittee Appreciated Swedish Hositalityp; Navy Takes One Last Slap At Defense Secretary Johnson. <'-"•?* Washington.—The nation will be months recovering frem the effects of the coal and steel strikes, but the disputes demonstrated one healthy fact: American industry and labor have "grown up" in their labor de- lations. The strikes were attended by almost no violence. It hasn't been many years since violence and bloodshed were the rule in major strikes. As recently as May 1937, Chicago police pursued and shot down steel union pickets, killing- four Instantly and fatally Injuring six others in the May-Day massacre at Republic Steel. However, except for a few minor outbreaks In COR!-mining areas, both management and labor recently demonstrated that the American spirit of fair play can be made to work In labor disputes. Much credit belongs to CIO President Phil Murray and his steal workers for peaceful, self-policed picket lines: also to certain employers, notably the Janes and Laughlln Steel company.^ Former Admiral Ben Morecll, far-sighted president of Jones and i^aughlin, saw to it that union pickets at his plants got free hot coffee and doughnuts almost every night. Moreell also ordered that huts, equipped with electric heaters, be built for the pickets and even installed a telephone in a hut at the Aliqulppa, Pennsylvania, SCULLY, Florist Flower* for Every OecMlon 4« BALDWIN ST.

Moreell also made a practice, whenever possible, of personally visiting the picket lines for a friendly chat. There was nothing patronizing about it. The salty, likable former sea dog respected the position of the strikers as much as they respected his. There were some bright mo- monts, loo, In the gruelling 52-day coal strike. In the past most tom- .pany stores shut off credit during strikes. However, this year practically all the big coal companies continued credit during the long strlko. In the South, several operators provided hot meals for miners' children when they heard the youngsters were going to school without breakfast. All In all, it was a far cry from the hot tcrnpers and tear gas of a decade ago. Swedish HoKpltullty Those insulting digs at Swedish hospitality by junketing Senator Elmer Thomas of Oklahoma contrasted with the story of another Senate sub - committee which visited Sweden at about the same time. While Senator Thomas charged that the Swedes snubbed him, the sub-committee on housing led by able Senator John Sparkman of Alabama, returned with glowing accounts of Swedish hospitality. The Sparkman subcommittee included Allen 1 Frear of Delaware, Ralph Flanders of Vcfmont and John Bricker of Ohio. Brickqr proved himself a real ambassador of good will in a speech at the Stockholm City Hall, lauding Sweden on Its efficient housing program and the cooperation shown lim and his colleagues. Tho white- .hatched Ohloan injected some American good humor Into the proceedings by denying that Senator [""rear was his s6n — even if the Delaware Democrat did call him •Pop." ' Bricker later got a big hand in Rotterdam when he remarked that ic had a special reason for "feeling at home here, because my folks came from Holland in the 17th century." Unfortunately, however, this good will didn't cop the same headlines as the sensational Thomas technique of How Not to Win Friends Abroad.
