WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 29, 1947 BUYTIIEV1LLE (ARK.)' COURIMl NEWS Remedial Labor LegislationUrged Wagner Act Termed "Strike Breeder" by New York Attorney 1!V ItAYMONI) I.AI1K (United Press Starr C»iTC<>|>oiiilciit) WASHINGTON, Jan. 2!).—Theodore R. Tsennnn, New York attorney, today aisuiled tiie Wngiicr Act as a strike-breeder and asked .-^pn#ress to enact a broad program Jl remedial labor legislation. Testifying before the Senate Labor Committee, he recommended specific steps to outlaw what he Luxury, Poverty Go Side-by-Side in Lisbon \Autry Sparks Where Hungry Have Patience, But No Voice PAGE THREE By HOSETTE HARGROVE NEA Staff Correspondenl LISBON, Portugal (NBA).— The tmrefoot beggars of Lisbon arc on every corner; they follow you into stores and shops with outstretched hands; and they disappear like magic when you tend them off with the words: "Have patience." For the poor, the workers and wage-earners alike In Portugal, patience is a necessary virtue. The supporters o; President Antonio Ralazar call It public traiiquklity, which (hey say Is preferable to total liberty. But the tranqullity is predominant only because the little people have no way or, expressing the unrest and discontent thejf feel. Of all European capitals, this one, physically untouched by war offers the sharpest contrasts. You arc constantly reminded of the king in the fairy tale who laughed union recognition as m , one side of his face and cried wages am >s'uiKiu*|on the other. There is eayety and bustle and plenty In downtown Lisbon—luxury of merchandise and food that the remainder of Europe has almost forgotten on an out-in-thc open basis. Side-by-side with tills abundanci or luxury Is an abundance of hunger, not just among the beggars but among the majority of labor eis and small office workers. Tlici: called "illegal strikes," secondary boycotts, the closed shop and in- dustrywide bai'samms;. He also favored measures mnklnj,' unions liable to brcadi-of-contract suits. Iscrvnan, who specializes in labor law, contended that the Wagner Act had encour.v'cn >•!••!'••>•! >•• (liMiutcs over well as over conditions. He said there had been "su'3-! slaul!ally more" strikes over or- il'juizins and union recognition since passage of I he act even though it was intended to create peaceable machinery lor •settling those disputes. "Strikes have increased because, under the act, no matter what the strike is about or how a man behaves during the strike, the least he can expect Iroin the National l/ibar 'Delations Hoard is to get his joi) back,'' Iserman said. Endmsrs Anu'rnlmimt He added that the Wagner Act properly left disputes over wages and working conditions to collective bargaining. «e endorsed a Wagner amendment proposed by Sen. Jo- j seph H. Ball. H . Minn., which I income has gone up 30 to 50 pe: cent since the war; the cost o food has gone up 100 per cent. Tin black market, which is evcrywher in Europe, here embraces even th would divest strikers of their status ar, "employes" if they refused an employer's offer of reinstate- mcnt. Strikers now lose their claims to their jr.bs only, after the employer has hired a replacement. Meanwhile, Senate Republican spokesman or. labor legislation viewed yesterdays testimony of Secretary of Lubnr Lewis B.

Some formed people place the figure a high as 80 per cent, but lack .statistics does not permit eithe confirmation or refutation of th ligure. Tiiere are not enough hospital sanatariums or disl-*insaries i 1'ortugal. despite the many soci improvements which Salazar has introduced in his 20-year regime. But the mumbling or the discontented must be blamed somewhat on the people themselves. \ People active in public and pri- charities Fireworks in Budget Parley UT'll.E ROCK, 'Ark., Jan, 29.
