' / « . -Progress in the NAM it is most encouraging t6 read tnu .new program of action nnnoiiiiqod by .the. National Association of ' Mnnufnc- • turers at the 51st. Congi-ess of American Industry, and to learn tlint Ihi.-! .program won out over an opposing one nia'rked by tlie reactionary tliinkiiif; which for 'too long has been associated in the public mind with the NAM. Tl remains to be seem, of course, ; how well and sincerely the NAM puts this progressive and cooperative program into action. But at toast it is . cheering lo know that (lie group which , favored complete repeal of (he Wagner Act and an all-out figlit against labor ^ unions finally capitulated. ; The NAM has been sensible and •• realistic in concluding that the results ; of last month's elections were not a - mandate to "place the forces of re-- action in power." Even though the new - program came at a moment of intense - public indignation toward union bosses, I as a result of the coal strike, i( s ;i u- " thors wisely refrained from playing upon that public cniotion. Apparently llic NAM lias reali/od ;il last thai it l>iltor opposition-I'oi'- Oppi.sifion's-.sal<c itltiliitk' <liirin|.f (ha entire llooscvdl adniiiiistratioi) didn't aironiplisli much. And so il appears now that one extreme of olislruction- imn is aljont to fall in lino. If some of the adamant, union executives on Die opposite wing will follow suit, Hi-; country mny finally .start moving forward. Juvenile Behavior H'e hesitate to comment on the. Oakland, Calif., ironoral strike because, in doing «> we risk tlie chiirijo of lx>- iiiff tire.sojne and repetitive, lint -,hc charge s-ltould really be placed agaiiKt the men ( who called the strike and ])roved once more thai such lactic* lose labor friends without punishing or even particularly impressing laijor's alleged enemies. The Oakland .strike wan a demonstration of Die strikers' jtivenilitp, nol a proof of their strength. It de.stroy.-d any public desire (o consider the justice of labor's grievances and concentrated oxns|X)ralc(l ))nblic atlention on (.ha means used to ptiblidy.u them. For oven though our labor laws may lie inadequate, the Oakland strikers .surely could have found or improvised some way of adjjusting their difficulties by %_>ss drastic measures. Irresponsible, destructive juvenile behavior invites the discipline of older and wiser heads, whatever the chronological age of the juvenile misbehavers may be. The men who ordered the Oakland strike should remember that when, sooner or later, discipline comes and they raise tlie familiar cry tint labor is being "crucified." Copyright by, i. C.
