FRIDAY, DECEMBER If, 134T (AKK,)' Fund for Strike Defense Planned Typographical Union To Vote on $1 Million A Month Assessment (By (Jnlied Press) « 'l'he International Typographical mon MPT,), on strike against wspnpers In six cities, nnnounccd plans yesterday for raiding « strike defense' fund of more (!i«n fiaoO- OCO per mon Hi. Meanwhile, 1,500 striking Chicago printers were denied Jobless Pay by the Illinois State Unemployment Compensation Department. Samuel Bernstein, department commissioner, ruled that the printers iverc not entitled to Jobless benefits because their Idleness was created by a work stoppage resulting from a labor dispute. At Indianapolis, the ITU executive council Issued a notice to the union's 88,000 members that a referendum will be held Feb. 18 on whether to levy a special assessment, to raise the stride fund. Under the plan, union members would contribute 4-112 per cent of their weekly earnings to the fund more than $1,000,000 per month. Don Hnrci, International secretary treasurer, said in a report on the executive council's action that "members of the executive council are fully aware of the possibilities of further trouble," Detroit Strikes Threatened The union, already on strike against 13 newspapers, has strike threats pending against three Detroit papers. Still more strikes appeared Inevitable as a result of the union's "no contract" policy. Publishers of Chicago's six struck newspapers again denied union claims that, the strike resulted from the union's wage Increase demands. « e publishers quoted corrcspon- icc with Woodruff Randolph, in.. national president of the union, to show that they had offered lo negotiate wages if the union would sign a formal contract. The union has refused to sign contracts with employers in an attempt, to by-pass the Toft-Hartley Law, which prohibits such contracts from including closed shop clauses. In Detroit, 'the law's co-author, Re]>. Fred A. Hartley. R,, N, J.. said he would n Congrrssioiwl fact-finding committee to investigate the Chicago strike and the threatened Detroit strike.

Never one lo sit quietly on the sidelines, Mrs. Roosevelt makes her presence fell In ihc UN, particularly In the Social, Humnnilarlan and Cultural Committee where she was pitted this year against V. A, Zorln of the Soviet Union In debate* on war mongerlng. When people praise her agile debating, Mrs. Roosevelt dismisses it by saying, "After all, I've hart a I great deal of political experience. You must remember that I am 03 I years old and that I've made a lot of speeches." Russians Alrrt It is essential, as Mrs. Hoo.sevcll points out, that, any delegate opposing the Soviet Union on any issue to be alert. "If they don'l win their point one way, they'll try another. You simply have to be on your toes mentally." I The Russians appreciate. Mrs. Roosevelt as a very able opponent She tells the story of one conversation she had with Andrei Vishln- sky, Russia's nimblest speechmiik- er, at the last general assembly ses.sion. "I told Mr. Vishinsky that 1 hoped one day he and I would be on the same side of a dispute because I admired his fighting qualities." she related. Vishinsky's answer was "And I yours." Mrs. Pandit, the only woman chief delegate at the UN, has devoted most of her energies at, this session to problems of trusteeship. A reeling of drama raced through the general assembly hall when this slim, dark woman, clad In a flowing gold and white sari, walked to the rostrum to plead eloquently that Southwest Africa be placed under trusteeship.
