TWO of the steps lie rejected—to outlaw industrywide bargaining and the closed shop—are advocated by Sen. Joseph it. Ball. R-, Minn., who was first appointed to Uie Senate by Stassen. "It appears to me that clearly 'n recent years too much power has been concentrated in the leadership of our labor unions nnd that lliat. power has been abused." Stassen s nid. "New national legislaUon is desirable and is needed to correct, these abuses and to limit ex- ccssiye powers. Sees Hanger ju Extremes "But it also appears to me that there is some danger of going too far in the adoption of new legislation or the amendment of existing statutes anrt to so weaken labor that the result would he injurious not only to labor but to our free ccrKpniy as n whole." •|assen suggested that the success of a free econnmv depended on "a feeling of fairness and of voluntary participation' 1 bv a!l elements.
