FRIDAY, JANUARY 2, 1948 Tatt-Hartley Repeal Proposal Gets Cool Reception Among Republicans Who Supported Bill ,„, ,) VAS . H . rNGT °N J Jan, 2. (UPl-Rcpubtlcav, leaders gave a ehillv reception today 10 a proposal that the Tafl-Hailley act be repealed but The proposal was advanced by Rep. Thomas L. Owens, R.. III., i ^icmber of the House Labor Committee who helped frame the act He ^aW: "We would be bettor off without the law on the books." Owens' statement was made rtur-^ ____^___ ing a subcommittee healing in Chicago ln!o the current strike staged by the International Typographical Union <AEM against local newspapers. He said he would make this recommendation to BLYTHEVIU.B .(ARK.) COURIKU NKWS . A high ranking Republican, who asked that his name be withheld, said the OOP considered the Taft. Hartley act. one of the "major accomplishments" of the party. He said that modifications might be possible but that repeal was out of the question. Study Closed Shop Itaii Some Republicans, however, were known to be studying proposals to modify the closed shop ban In the act. They contend that in Its present form it might endanger pence in the building trades industry. The building trades work under master agreements which arc signed every Spring in key cities throughout the nation. They regulate conditions of work and determine which of the many craft unions shall perform different types of work. ' . The unions maintain thai the closed shop ban in the law prevents •them from signing such agreements. They contend that they must bo aule lo resell an understandlnz with all contractors and have the rlsrht to discipline their members to work effectively. The closed shop ban prohibits an employer from discriminating against a worker for membership or ^jion-membership in a labor or^a- W;ir£atioii. A contractor with union busting ideas could use this clause as a pretext for breaking up labor organizations, they contend. Wants Union* to Clean Home Some Republicans fear that a union refusal to negotiate master agreements on the grounds they arc Illegal may lead to chaos in the building industry. They have yet to draw up a specific proiwsal to handle the situation. Rep. Charles J. Kersten, R.. WIs., has already stated that repeal of Returns to Fold the closed shou ban might be necessary to solve the conflict, presented In the typographical strike. The union is admittedly striking over , conditions of employment rather I than wages. ' House L^bor Committee Chair- i man Fred ,\. Hartley, Jr., R., N. J., I has said that he might be willing '.o I consider repeal of the ban. How- S ever, he has conditioned this state- mem on the premise that the im- i ionb tirst "t'lcnii house" and open j their mmiUmlilp books to all who ' want to Join. .

K l« (Conr. * » • xix J WAS in the midst of searching the house for the poison when Alarie Muloney turned up. Jeff had talked to her over the telephone after he left my place and when he explained the set-up to her (one woman living rlone, not much cooking and not many par- tics) she had jumped at the chance lo work (or me. She had piled all her worldly belongings into a taxicab and come right over to my place — not wanting, I suspect, to spend another night in that apartment of Avis Vaughn's. Marie was about thirty with a broad Irish face. As a girl she must have been very pretty; I read later in the newspapers that she had once played in pictures. Bit parts. She still had blue-black hair and eyes of an amazing blue. An;J a lurid taste in clothes. But any sort of maid W3S to be regarded as manna from heaven and so I showed her to the maid's room across the patio from the kitchen without any further ado. When next I saw her she was turned out neatly in a black uniform with a crisp white apron and cap. By that time 1 had finished searching the house and hadn't found any trace of the packet of poison. In the kitchen— where I looked first, in the living room, the guest room, my own room or either of (he ball. rooms. : * * « I'M a writer. I have the habit of thinking more clearly when I'm writing things down. That evening I took/a blank sheet of paper nnd a pen and put down in an orderly fashion everything I know about the case. My notcr read like this: Avis Vaughn murdered by pol- soii. Art Cleves, ditto. Motive blank. To be filled in later. Number One Suspect, Jeff il«- verson, husband of the dead Homan. Motive—he admittedly wished she were dead so that he would be free to marry afain. Opportunity —he fixed the last drink for her. Motive for murderinr Art Cleves —jealouiy not likely. He may have thought poisoning ClevM would complicate the case and ob- cure liis molive. Opportunity for iviiie poison tfl G'leves—blank. Jeff did not mix a drink for Art. Number Two Suspect, Liz L«y den. Motire—unknown. Opportunity—mixed drinks tot •verr- one. Number Three Suspeet, Roll; Donn. (I thousht I might at least try to be as objective u ihe police ii-ould be.) Motive ;or murdering Avis—interested fn Jeff Havcrson whom Avis would not divorce. Opportunity—made coffee, which all hut Avis drank; and cheese sandwiches which everyone ale. Motive for murderln* Art Cleves— I couldn't off-hand think of any reason why I would wanl to murder Art. I re-read what I had written It was pretty unsatisfactory. In giis. 1 tore the paper lo shreds nnd went (o bed and tossed myself to sleep between sheets that were as comfortable as a bed of slinging nctllcs. When I awoke Ihe nexl morning, the weight of the world had Ijfted from my shoulders, f felt foolish and relieved. During the night, my subconscious had figured oul what had happened to that little unmarked packet of poison. I hadn't put ifback In the dree- ing table after I used so,,ie for the cat and Consuelo had found it when sue was giving ny House a lick and a promise on her last visit and hod .simply thrown it out with the trash. • • » YJY car wouldn't start that day. The starter sans a lilllc soiij! when I put iny lool tm it nnd wouldn't turn the motor over. 1 happened to think of Jimmy I'elers and went back into the house and called him. He hadn't stalled for the studio and he said he'd stop by nnd pick me up. It was Ihe first time I had Seen Jimmy since the night of the edy. He looked fine with a ruddy | healthy glow of color in his freshly shaved face and his blue eyes were am) undoubted. We talked a little bil about the funeral—and the wrilc-u|>B in the newspapers. When he let ni» oul at the studio parking loll he said he'd lake me home that evening if I'd wait for him. Jeff and Ben Morgnn were in conference all morning. Then they gave Madge Narney a (lock of screen tests and when they were ready Jeff called me and asked if I'd like lo see them. too. They were swell. The mafcoup depnrtmcnl had done n good job on Madge. They had lefl her hair its natural honey-brown color and the technicolor camera hart picked up Ihe golden glints in il and in her pale brown eyes. She was ravishing. And her acting was so good, one forgot the resemblance of her face to Avis Vaughn's. Jeff was highly pleased over the tests and Morgan nodded his head in cautious approval. I was so happy about Mndgr gelling nor big chance lhal 1 burbled about il to Jimmy Peters on the way home. "She'll be a scnsntion," I said. oing Hollywood. 1 raved on. "She's the mosl natural, the most unspoiled young thing I've seen in this lown. And she c;m act." Jimmy looked at me out of Ihe corner of his eye. "Yoji don't know her very well, do you?" "No—wliy do you ask?" "Well," Jimmy said with a rueful smile, "She's about the mosl unnatural girl. I know!" lie stressed the adjective. (To Be Continued) OUT OUR WAY By J. R.
