The chief, dif- fereiicc is thai the union men stand u good ch.Hncc of milking mil belter than the businessmen did. But if they do it probably won't bo 'as a result of the reason mid realisrr. of their piotebta. Kather it would seem that^if the sharp edge is taken off some. of the new labor laws it will be becaube the Labor Committee of the Republican Senate contains three strpnglj pio labor Republicans i-i Messrs Aiken, Morse and Ivcs, along withrfoiu stionly pro-labor Democrats. Theie is not black-and-white simplicity about such things as industry- wide bargaining, thc_ closed shop, union shop and maintenance-of-membership agreements. They are complex matters in which both the pros and the antis have some persuasive arguments at then disposal Their merits need a thoughtful, dispassionate resludy in the light of the past decade's experience. But the extreme views on these subjects, foi and against, approach hvbtena, with- the champions of the labor status quo naturally making the most iibise. Yet one examines their piotests in vim for any admission that the actions of certain union leaders may have aioused a great many people to the extent of influencing their vote Idit \ T oyembei and prompting them to demand some curb of ec™.omicnlly / ~dis- " bear from Phillip Muri ) '•'- ' unidenlified "pow- 'opfy interests" are out lo unionism." Louis Hollander, New York state president of the CIO, credits Senator Ball personally with the same desire. The United Mine Workers Journal, taking another tack, .sees in any effort lo curb unions the regimentation of business and eventual destruction of the profit system. Henry Mayer, counsel for independent unions of telephone and utility workers, dismisses Ihc moot question of the closed shop thus: "The insistence that the so-called closed shop is nn iu- fringemcnl of an individual's liberty is completely insincere, since . . . the individual worker depends upon Ihe collective bargaining strength acquired through association wilh other workers." Mr. Hollander counters, but does not refute, the charge that there arj labor monopolies by saying that "Die real monopolies in (his country arc Ihe giaill corporations ruled by a handful of financiers.". Name-calling and ignoring charges by hurling counter-charges are old political IrickK. They can easily become; a habitual method of argiimcnl. Bui they will not solve our present economic problems. Before they can be solved the lead: ers of our great unions will have to admit that all their actions have not been perfect and to the public interest. They will have lo recogni/e their public duties and responsibilities as well as their "rights." They will have lo concede that those, rights have been abused on occasion, and ihat others besides "powerful monopoly interests" would like «to .see the power of oiiv John L. Lewises somewhal curtailed.
