Carlyle said that •omethinr; alwayi he sees In somelhlni Infinite, man alwaya worship! the Infinite shadowed •when individual points can and may be changed." Mr. Johnson's explanation must h»v« demolished some of the bogymen that have been haunting rank-and-file union members. We think his method of treating the whole matter deserves to be copied. Only calm and detailed discussions can quiet the hysteria that this new law has induced, restore the good relations that >he hysteria destroyed, and really expose the law's vices and virtues and show what amendments it may need to function with greatest justice. Seven More Lives to Go VIEWS OF OTHERS The Heat's On Six scientists, experimenting on themselves, have successfully withstood IB minutes in a room healed to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. With an investigation of alleged grain speculation by high government officials on the horizon, it may be that news of this experiment will be cheer' ing to several members of both parlies. Toft-Hartley Without Hysteria A few months ago, Eric O. Johnson decided to talk over common problems and interests with the employes of the American' Central Division of Avco Manufacturing Company, Connersville, Ind., where he is general . manager. This wasn't a novel idea, of course. But it produced some interesting remits. Mr. Johnson spent many years as/* iteel worker before he became boss. When he talked to his employes, it was in a language that these UAW-C10 members understood. He talked about »uch things as the corporation's records, manufacturers' and retailers' prices, profits, communism, capitalism. And he talked to the 2500 workers in groups of about 100, so there would be •C little speech-making atmosphere as • possible. Recently, Mr. Johnson decided to talk about the Taft-HnrUey Law. But before he did so lie took a secret poll, supervised by a union-managed committee, to see what the workers thought \ of it. He found that 13 per cent of the •hop employes were for it, 63 per cent •were against it, and 24 per cent didn't understand it. The supervisors were 60 per cent for, 17 per cent against, with 23 per cent who didn't understand the law. It would be -more dramatic to be able to say that Mr. Johnson's eloquent logic reversed the percentages, but, of course, that didn't happen. However, another secret poll taken after the talks showed that ,20 per cent more em- ployes favored the law. The figures now revealed 33 per cent of the shop •workers for and 56 against, with 11 per cent wanting more information. Among the supervisors the figures had changed to 93-5 and 2 per cent, re-r gpectively. Mr. Johnson began his talks by saying that he didn't consider the new labor relations law perfect, or think that it shouldn't have some changes. He assured his listeners tliat the company respected their right to organize. Then he began a detailed discussion of the law. He pointed out that the Taft- Hartley Act did not omit a single word from the Wagner Act's section on rights of employes. "Management," he said "must still bargain with the union chosen by you. Management still can't 'interfer with, restrain or coerce its , •workers.' Management can still he punished for unfair labor practices." Mr. Johnson dwelt on the worker's protection from union or management discrimination. He took up such points . AS political use of dues, secondary boycotts, non-Communist pledges, closed versus open shops, the 60-day period lor settling disputes after a strike notice, and the right to strike. The audiences threw questions at the boss, and he answered them. Then h* ended his talk with this counsel: "There may still be individual points in this law you personally disagree with. But *ok't •ond«mn th« antir* law Too Much Money— and Politics? Americans will be surprised to hear that they have too much money. Bui Hint Is the latest discovery In Washington—and In the ofliccs ot the National Association of Manufacturers. "Too much." of course, means In relation to the amount of goods available—ami it Is tills relationship that is Inrgcly responsible for Inflation. Figures released by the NAM disclose that since 1938 the money supply of the United States has risen from $33,000,000,000 to $108,000,000,000, ot 225 i>« cent. This compares with an'increase In the production or goods of only 10 per cent. With more than three times as many dollars bidding tor less than twice as much goods, prices have gone up. This Is not, the sole reason, but it Is a basic one. and it Is now getting some oi the attention 11 should have had right along. This excess o( money over goods was mainly produced by the Government's wartime borrowing. Only 40 per cent of the war's cost was met by taxes. A huge amount came from the sale of bonris-cspcciaUy to the banks. This was Just about as Inflationary as Issuing greenbacks —it created extra purchasing power (credit) without creating extra goods. In tlie last two years the Government has been using surplus revenue to buy back these bonds and reduce their Inflationary pressures, but at the same time commercial borrowing lias Increased and IB now rising at the rate of $10,- . 000,000,000 a year. These bank loans add to the high coat of living. A month ago expiration of wartime restraints on Installment buying pvit total supply of money which is pushing up the new pressures on prices. Congress is likely to rc-eslablish Regulation W—control of installment credit. The Federal Reserve Board has power to raise the rediscount rate—to discourage borrowing by malt- Ing money cost move in interest charges. But today tins power Is not expected to make any great difference. The Board desires Instead, to get power from Congress' to Increase the reserves required of member banks—leaving them less money to lend. But In any such move the Government must proceed carefully lest It also raise the cost of its own vast borrowings. Moreover, the banks, which make their money by lending, rto not relish anything which will check the borrowing. But some tightening up on loans is in process already through new Instructions to mi- tlouM bank examiners to be more strict in their judgment:, of bank assets—particularly on loans for purchases of real estate or speculative inventory increases. Credit controls—curbing the excess of money (especially creditl over goods—could play a major part In combating inflation. They might well be exercised in greater degree before such measures as rationing and price controls are tried again. But Congress is unlikely to sanction new powers for the Federal Reserve Board. For any deflation is politically unpopular. Many people are pleased with a "gentle inflation" which seems to provide boom times. Moreover, the Administration itself lias some fear that stabilization efforts would not merely check the boom but "bust" it.
