TaJt made his remarks In a speech prepared for delivery before the Gary service clubs a.i part of his speaking tour of the Mid- West M a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination. In A speech last night at Bloom- Ington, 111., Taft charged that President- Truman ha.s become the "greatest peacetime spender and the greatest peacetime laxer in (he history of the world." He claimed Mr. Truman was demanding "a stranglehold over all I industry, ''agriculture and com- } — merce" in seeking economic controls.

The law, he said, resulted from a "sincere desire lo brinK about a condition in which employer and employes might sit across the table with equal power to present their views and obtain their rights." "On« principle of the act is to Impose on labor unions a response commensurate with their new power." he said. * He said he was "strongly opposed to any attempt to prohibit strikes.' 1 "If an agreement cannot bo reached by collective bargaining the alternative must be compulsory arbitration or wasc .fixing by the government." he said- In the end. he said.

Ta(t said he did not "like" to limit the risht to strike even In cases affecting safely or health. But he said a cooling off period provided by the new law "seems reasonable." He said thai if a slrlke affecting national health and security were called after the coollni: off period, "a special act will have to be passed as in the case of n general strike." Tells of Slaves Ijbor Danger* "A strike against the existence or a people has the characteristics of revolution rather than of economic bargaining," he said.
