Why Not Sit Tight? Paul Herzog, chairman of tiie NLRB, has urged unions to give the Taft-Hartley Law a fair trial. He doesn't say that they should not question the wisdom of its provisions If they wish. But he does remind them of management's experience back in 1935 with the "famous 58 lawyers" who advised clients not to obey the Wagner Act. Those who followed thin counsel discovered that the act was constftutional, after all. Final interpretation of some questions on the new labor law has not been worked out, but it's getting there. Meanwhile, unions still exist and fascism hasn't arrived, in spite of the predictions. About the only injuries have been self-infJicter} by those who have refused to sign non-Communist statements and thus talked themselves out of labor board representation. Exposing the False 'Fronts' When you turn ydur money over to an institution in the form of investments, deposits or dues, you can usually get an accounting of what is do. with it, Banks and insurance companies are required to publish financial statements. Corporations with securities listed on stock exchanges have to tell all to th« SEC. Unions now must re-' - ,veal their getting and spending, But this public accounting does not apply to, ; many organizations, political and otherwise, which deal in ideas and special pleading. , They can recruit members and money and segment of public opinion, all of which puts them • -in position to pull a. really dangerous swindle. Yet they are not required to open their purses or disclose their purposes. I Morris Ernst, New York attorney and perennial champion of civic rights, wanU to see these groups stripped of their anonymity and made accountable by law. As he puts it. in obvious reference to the Klan, he would make them "take off their nightshirts." He favors legislation that would compel them to reveal their membership and the source and use of their funds. Such « disclosure, Mr. Ernst points out, has not been made by a single one of the organizations that Attorney General Clark has accused of being subversive. "These are the very groups I want to see out in the open," Mr. Ernst says. "Let them say who they are and what they do—then they can operate all they want to. Their power will be gone, for we will know them for what they are." This would be a frontal attack on the "front outfits, instead of the present feints and skirmishes. A good deal has been accomplished already, but in a limited and rather hap-hazard way. Several newspapers have done a valuable job of exposing Communist string- pulling behind the scenes of apparently harmless and high-minded organizations. Public-spirited individuals and societies, have helped rip the mask from Red-controlled outfits hiding behind phony titles. But these revelations have had to be marJe one at. a time. And they havt not been able to keep many well-meaning innocents from falling for a lot of window dressing, joining up, shelling out their money, and ignorantly par. roting the party line. A Uw might remove these false frout« and expose, the inner workings. If th* operation received the widest national publicity, ignorance would no longer b« an excuse. Check* and investigation i could then proceed from the general to the particular—from the organization to the individual—with more efficiency and lees chance of injustice. ' Maybe Mr. Ernst'* proposition isn't air-tight or fool-proof. But it does seem to be an advance over the present method^ even though the Justice Department and the Loyalty Review Board have shown every desire to be fair and reasonable. A legal approach to the fundamental problem would, in the end, put the responsibility sijuarely up to the individual involved—which IK a mature, intelligent, democratic way of doing things. VIEWS OF OTHERS Lessons in Conservation The address President Truman delivered at the dedication of the Everglades National park applies to the entire country In its emphasis on the purposes, benefits and need of conservation. Specifically, most of what he said regarding the primeval-llke Florida lowland would hold true for Grassy take in Hemiwtead county, Arkansas. "Here It land," h< remarked, "tranquil in IU quet beauty, serving not as the source of water, but u the last receiver of It. To Its natural abundance we owe the spectacular plant and snlm»i life that distinguishes this place from all others In the country." in its own way Grassy lake Is equally distinctive. The cypress, canes, water mosses and lilies, alligators and egrets show what the untouched H«d river basin was In the days when the broad lowland of bayous, lakes and twisting river was »t 1U peak In supporting wildlife. Fortunately this stretch of lake and swamp preserves that original character in its most important aspects. Tlie Hempstcad County Hunting club, which controls the lake, deserves great credit for Its successful effort to protect wildlife. For each person who finds his way to Grassy Ukc there will be thousands of visitors to Evcr- fladcs National Part, fhe multitudes who visit the Florida preserve will come away with Increased interest In protecting the natural resources of the country. They will learn that to conserve one resourse It is necessary to conserve others. It will be made evident to them that untouched land, with Us chief original features left in all the splendor, can be a continuous inspiration. Grassy lake likewise could be converted into a laboratory and out-of-doors museum, serving on a smaller scale a valuable educational function In Arkansas, The sub-tropical character o! the place has a story to tell in associations of animals and plants, and In their relation to soil, water and slopes. For those who care (o read the lesson in the habitat of alligators and herons, Or«s*y lake provides a graphic example of the principles of conservation which apply to all types of land. —ARKANSAS GAZETTE, <>........).... ••sswiM'Kssisr.mii-.-jK-.-issiw.
