CIO Gives Toft-Hartley Law An Orderly Test After a lot of slioutin^ IW( \ |,i-r.nsl- beBting, Hie Taft-Htirlley f,a w is nlx.ut to he put to a sensihle test. The CIO «ntl its president, Philip Murray, are going to appear as guinea pi^s 'in a test o'f one of its provisions. The pru- cedings promise to be onlcrly and unemotional.. Everyolie has reason to rejoice at this turn of eveifts. For the fearful to- do about this new labor law has aggravated the uneasy postwar relations of unions with government and industry Labor leader*, aUmg by a curb on their broad powers granted bv Die Wagner Act, launched a generalized and hysterical attack on the law as a whole. A few months of actual operation have shown that union labor i s not being crucified by the ne w restrictions. I hey have shown that the charges of slavery" and « lne beginning of fascism-are unfounded an,) unfair. Unions have bargained, won benefits and gone on strike, just as before. the law i s neither perfect ,,„,- r clea, , ts ,,-sponsor. .e.utlor t, admits 111,., . The court lost, which i probably will( , llp in the ; '; Court, s hould clarify one of it ' ' troversial provision*. The law's authors apparentlv lllcilnt n. the provision ulKlcr ^'^^ stop the «pending of union dues in •uort of a poHtica, statui w , a ''^ mi « hl . «»t » S «e wi , the provisions seemed di at th. taking O f editorial " r, h, (agalnSt a caildi ^te in pubhca ,on s whici, were not . out of mem C1 " S Ult we out of a general dues fund ' m*d« it clew th«t h*. wa» not acting "In a aplrlt ot rie?i«nc« and bitterness," Th« du« process of law by which Mr. Murray'i act it to be tested in proof enough ot the exlrawitfance of earlier RtlnckK on the Taft-Jiartley Law. For Ihnt law'* application is still subject to the u.siuil checks ii|>oti its constitutionality. There is no reason to talk of slavery and fascism when labor hits act-ess to n (air hoiiriiij? of all its (fi'ievnni'es. We hope the calm almosplici-e in which the first real test of the law lias bfrii launched will remain. Kach provision that labor spokesmen have railed against may be tested in the same manner. It will take time, but it will be done in a sane, orderly, democratic way. And it can and .should be done without any further campaigns of exaggeration, emotionalism and incitement to vengeance. About 'Militarists' To those Americans who decry the miJitiu-y influence in our government, we commend the present Army Chief of Staff ami his two immediate prcdc- ce.s.sor.s. It is Hiving Gen. Omar Bradley !ngh but well-deserved praise .to say that he is fully qualified to follow Georj-e C. Mai-shall and DvyijflU D. Kiscnliuwei- in that post. All three are great Americans as well as K reut soldiers. Their careers arc marked not only by military brilliance but. in war and peace, "by H (Icon regard for human rights and' human dignity. It is impossible to read's, their records without being convinced thai they are genuine lovers of peace. A blanket condemnation of "militarism" is a disservice to these men. This country should count itself fortunate to have had three such eminent humanitarians in its military service in time of national peril. No country can have too many Marshalis, Eisenhowers and Hradleys. VIEWS OF OTHERS" Southwestern's Rate Case Southwestern Bell ha., now substantially increased us pending request for a telephone rate adjustment in Arkansas, bringing the total additional yield to $1.74B.OW. of which S210.000 would be added to the telephone bills ol Little Rock subscribers alone.
