BATURD AT, DECEMBER «, 1»4T House to Check Labor Leaders • Ol' Rvflv ^%MVOHv Toft-HqrtUy Wins High Award «, Diee. « (OP) — 'The-Bouw UnAmeriean Activities Conxaltto* 1* pi arming an Investigation to determine whether any Comnamtetsln the United Slot** i* signed non-Communist affidavits Under th* Taft-Hartley Labor Law, H was disclosed Saturday. Rep. John McDowell, R,, Pa., m member: of the commute*. *aM that /if any such cases are dlscloced they either will be turned over to the Justice Department for prosecu- tton (or perjury, or will become subject of committee hearings. McDowell said he hopes the committee soon will undertake a thorough investigation of Communism to labor. • . '- • Th* mo*t acute danger from Communists in theUnlted States is not In Hollywood or in- educational group* but In their infiltration oJ labor unions," he said. • Under/ the Taft-Hartley Law union official*'are required to sign affidavits that they are not Communist* before their unions are entitled to use the machinery of the National Labor Relations Board for bargaining elections or unfair practice complaints. Th« law does not set up any procedure*, however, for determining whether complying'union officials ar« Communists. Even If the board knew they were Communists, It would have no course available except,to report th* fact to the attorney general. McDowell said the .UnAmeriean Activities Committee planned to ob- taia a list of union leaders who have signed the affidavits, and check their names.against the committees master-list of known and suspected Communists. "If W* find that we have proof that any of these people are Com' nunlsts, we will turn Uie facts over to the Justice'department-so'they can be prosecuted," he said. "On the other hand, if- we merely suspect, someone Is a Communist; we probably will call him before the committee and ask him flatly whether or -not he is. II he's not, hell be glad to say so. _"Mo»t of our labor leaders are good patribtio : American citizens M)t there art a few who are not. It's the committee's duty to expose them "France and Italy are gocid examples of .what can happen when the Communists take over the labor unions. A lot ot the labor trouble in this country unquestionably can be. traced directly to Communist agitation.

Marseille still was like a city under siege, with-10,000 colonial troops liatroll'ng the streets and strikers trying to keep food supplies -out. The situation in the Northern coal fields, an incubator for violence, was'still explosive. -. But in Marseille and In the South, Socialists. and Popular Republicans started a movement to organize workers Into a »trong "third force" to fight Communist strife and riot, They called .upon workers to organize and "protest against the wilful contusion .of the Communist Party." .-.='. As soon as the assembly meeting started, the Communists opened up with delaying tactics again. Maurice Thorez, secretary-general ; of. ; the French Communist Party, accused Labor Minister ' Daniel Mayer^ of "sabotaging production. : ; Mayer reported that the government was doing everything In its power to restore the national economy, but "if this crisis continues, this goal cannot be achieved."
