Ball defended the Ball-Taft- SrnHh bill, a rewritten version of Ihe Case bill vetoed last year by Prcsidcnl Tr'iman. it now curries iiualilied approval of the Republican leadership. Ball said Ihe tjovcrnmcnl had strengthened the pov-'er of unions and I heir leaders while decreasing their legal duties and responsibilities.

Ball said, "is no! to delcgaio vast arbitrary powers lo Ihe executive brunch of government to deal with crisis, but to correct tho law, applying equally to * ail. the underlying causes that • • breed llic crises. "Our approach is to eliminate, or condition the special privileges and legal immunities of unions, to make their vas~, economic power rc- spDiisiolc to lhc public interest and to prevent • those monopolistic practices which clearly are harmful lo tiie public and dangerous to freedom." Hall, who has proposed outlaw- inii closer! shops and industrywide bar^nhun;; in oilier bills, said he thought outlawing the secondary boycott and jurisdiclional strikes wil.s equally important.
