F'KIDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 1947 'Honeyed' Talk Is Discounted Ousted Union Member Critical of Labor's 'Goodwill' Messages ItV UA310ND LAUR United 1'rcss Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, Feb. 21.—Hollywood producer Cecil 13. DcMille charged today that imlon Dosses were trying to sidetrack labor re- orms \vith "honeyed ineE.snses bout ii so-called cia of good feelings." He appealed to Congress "not to be deceived. 1 ' The noted film producer, who lost his radio Job because lie rc- tused to pay a SI union assessment, told the House Labor Committee that the people had Issued a man- daft for labor curbs in the last election. Congress, lie said, must not allow union leaders to sway It. irom its duly, DeMille renewed his plea for a ban on the closed shop, which he denounced as a "cancer" in the labor movement. "We need a second emancipation proclamation la free those who have been forced to sign away their individual liberty," he said. Meanwhile, a spokesman for an AFL union recommended that unions eventually be stripped of Wagner Act protection for jurisdictional strikes thai seek to force employers to violate that law. The recommendation was made to the-Senate Labor Committee by George Q. Lynch, president of the Pattern Makers League IAFL), who warned at the sine time against destroying the Wagner act by "indirection." Lynch did not propose legislation to enforce his proposal. He thus put himself in line with other labor spokesmen w ho have angered some committee members with "negative" criticism of pending hills. Lynch criticised early National Labor Relations Board policy in administering the Wagner Act in connection with craft unions. Bui recent decisions, he said, indicated "a move in the proper direction." If the trend continues, he said, it would lend to reduce jurisdictional disputes over NLRB decisions. "When evenness of administration has been established under rules of board procedure," Lynch said, "it will be reasonable to require unions to abide by board certification without recourse to strikes for the purpose of coercing employers to violate the law of the land." Lynch scoffed at some of''the arguments used to justify cither demands for changes in the Wagner Act. He said some employers asking for "free speech" really, wanted "compelling ex parte speech." And he charged "insincerity" behind demands for "equality" in bargaining power. BLYTHEVILLE (AKK.) COURIER NEWS Read Courier Wen's Want Ads.
