Only Labor Can Decide End Of Use of Strike Weapon For some lime we li.ivc been scraping along with a slim output of vital sleel. Inevitably the natioiuil defense program will suffer. So will the entire domestic economy, of course. Ami that includes the steel workers themselves. Every time a major strike occurs, some enterprising fellows always lot up Die economic losses, in output, wages, profits and so on. The bill is generally staggering. Maybe the lime will come when we will regard these losses as too great to bear. In the complex slate of our industrial ovjfaiiiziUiun, in I he precjiriouM stale of our relations with the Communist world, time is of supreme value. The time that is thrown away when men strike can never be regained. Thai lime spells money in workers' pockets. U spells, in (his instance, sleel for guns ami tanks ant! atilomotiilos and ice boxes. \\'e will make Ihcse tilings again at the scheduled rales envisioned li.v our business and military leaders. I'.ut we shall never make the ones we could be producing now. U'e may well conclude one day. in the light 01 this painful fact, dial the strike is an economic weapon whose ilis- adviinlajfes outweigh its advantages. \\e are not here proposing thai strikes lie outlawed, or severely curbed by any lejrislalive mean.". The sirike is Labor's last resort against what il regards as management's stubbornness or unreasonable demands. It is (he symbol of labor's freedom not lo work. In a iVce land such as ours, there can never l<e compulsion upon men to labor, except in time of war. No. if Hie strike as a weapon is ever to fall into disuse, the initiative will luivc lo come from labor itself, acting volitiilai-ily. Labor leaders will have to conclude for themselves that the strike lias become in this complex age a rather barbaric device which .serves nyboclv well. .Management may "win" any particular sirike, in the sense that il.s proposals arc accepted by labor. E5ut it will never win back the lost production. If labor should gain its demands, h o w long will the men have to work to offset the wage? lost while they sal idle? Kvei'y sirike ends at some point. Why? Admittedly, the economic preB- Btires on one or both partie.s to the dispute somelimes become too great lo re- xist. Rttl many strikes end before either side, has reached (hat limit. They end because the two parties have knuckled down hard to Uiu business of bargaining—.something they have gollc/i out of the habit of doing in the early stages of present-day controversies. If the two can ultimately settle their differences by tough bin-gaining, why wait to begin that process until millions of dollars in wages and production have been irretrievably lost'.' What could be more wasteful or more purposeless? Though no such study has been conducted, it is very likely that close examination of (he record would indicate lhal the majority of strikes are ineffective. They do nol accomplish what they are supposed to. They have become largely an escape valve for accumulated emolional steam. Hut since the strike is labor's club, no one but labor can make the decision not to ( it. l.abor lenders will only decide thus when they are convinced there is more wisdom and benefit in other way.s of fighting. What Control! Down in Texas, the other day a man named Darnall arrived at n'Re- publican convention to find he was the sole attendant. Without ado he named himself chairman of the meeting, voted to endorse a candidate, picked himself as delegate to the county convention with instruclions lo vote for his man. Then he adjourned. Many a professional politician must have reflected enviously on (hose proceedings. What foolproof control! Only H split personality could have trouble in a -situation like that. Views of Others Commie 'Sportsmanship' 'Hie Pramie radio has urged communist athletes wlm will participate in the Olympic games this Summer at Helsinki, Finland, i o turn ths nig athletic meet Into a Communist-type "demonstration lor peace." The urging is siiid lo come Irom the International Union ol Students," — "Demonstrations lor peace" by Communists can be anylhlug from flagrant anti-West and enli-American propaganda lo open rioting. American athletes will go to Helsinki to compete In good sportsmanship with athlelcs Iwm other countries of (In- world.
