,PAQB SIX Three Foremen Ask Labor Curb Appear Before House Committee in Appeal For Fair Practices ?Y GE-OItGK K. ItDIIDY, Jr. United Press SlaCC Correspondent \VASHINGTON, .Feb. 22,—<UP> —The House I'abor CoinmlUoc today heard three foremen, a lorm- er APL organizer and a Michigan shop ..worker plead for drastic curbs on .union activities to protect free enterprise nnd restore management rJgtils. The former APL organizer—Anthony Gruszka, of South Milwau- kee,-Wls.—urged outright repeal of the \Vagner net. He snlil it should be replaced by a simple gunv.intee of labor's right to $nlf-organii,ition nnd'collective bargaining. Gruszka described his experiences as an organizer for the AFL United Automobile Workers. He said that unio)is used the National Labor Relations Board and other government agencies to linrass employes into: membership. H| told the committee that In return for the right to organize, unions should -be,.compelled to incorporate: \ ; lie" aIso recommended that no strike, be permi.wlHe unless first authoil^ed in a supervised vote by 76 per cent of (he workers affected. : . The three foremen agreed thai unions - pf supervisory employe:; would do "Irreparable harm" to industry ."J51iey. .were. Angus Mo- Inlyre, of:: Uie Briggs MaimfAoltir- inij; Company, Detroit, Mich.. Floyd H. Rhdad, of the Sparks-Withingto;i .Company, Jackson, Mich., and Joseph E. Cox, ol the Delco Products Corp., Dayton, "o. Their theme was Hint foremen are a part of management and cannot • be made subject to divided loyally. Mclntyrc said that ir lie were a union member he could not appeal to the company for assistance whc he was 111 because "my conscience -would'not allow me to do so-" The shop worker was 65-year old Douglas Dean, of Miles, Mich., who saidl he had been employed in the Clark equipment Co. plant, at Berrien Springs, Mich., for the pnst six years. He urged the committee to wipe out laws that have given unions too much power: ''Under these so-called 'rlglits o' labor,',* the 'poor dp\vn-trcdden workers' have become the privileged^class in America," In; said. "That* in itself is not so much to worry.', about but what concerns us and-what \ve should worry about is the fact that In reaching this position, 'labor is .ruining the whole economy." The Wagner Act, he said, "gives labo'r unfair advantage without re- sponsibilit ynud penalizes the employer by not even allowing him to argue 1m side of the case." Next to the Wngner Act, he ciled the closed shop as the. most important target for congressional'action. "This is a form of compulsion that is unAmericnn," he said. "The Trainers of our constitution. would have abhorred the idea of having to join a union to hold a job." Dean, a member of the CIO United Automobile Workers, expressed fears that he would lose his job because of "un-unlon like activities.;' But he added that if he could make the committee realize the importance o[ repealing current labor laws the sacrifice would be worth it. , "I am 65 and most o( my life is behind me so it doesn't matter much what becomes of me," hn said. - (ARK.)

The .protest was useless, nnd anvwny she ^t-Jn't really meant it. one wanted Mike to kiss her, didn't she? She had ".c-nged for Mike's arms around her so many, many limes! /\nd now she wns in his arms,'' and his moutli, hard, eager, dc- .-nanding, v.'as on hers. A giddy, fierce excitement whirled her ihroufih space, and when he at -ast released her she was breathless nnd shaken. "What's the matter, bnhy?" His blue eyes wore a baffled look. "Didn't it ring Ihc bell, like it used to?" "Yes." It had been so long since she'd been kissed with passion. She and Parker hadn't really loved each other in such a long time. "Well then, what gives?" "I don't know what you/mean, Mike!" "Something's missing, nnd you know it, Cnss!" Miko sat quietly, both arms resting oil the steering wheel, as he studied her face. He smiled suddenly. "You aren't by any chance in love with the guy, nre you—just because you've bcei mnrried to him for a long time?" "Well, I—" She wanted to say "I don't know!" Util she was i]Uiet. Something was different in Ihc way she felt about Mike—but somehow it wasn't anything she could name or fathom. "W:iit—doivt try to answer, baby. I know now what it is. Guilt. No less. You're still married to the guy—and you have a guilty Ji-uiing of disloyalty—kissing me. You always were such a puritan, Cass!" He laughed. "You'll feel different, ancc you're divorced and coinnletoly iree .-.gain." T-TE got out and came, around to open the door for ::er. And they went inside anr 1 . rc.up.el a nuiel booth. Mike put a nickel in the juke box and ordered Manhattans and sandwiches. While they sipped their cocktails, he told her all about his western venture, how successful it had been, how nutria money he had made. "So you see, baby, if you had just wailed and not been so hasty — " "You said we were through, Mike!" she reminded him. "Ah— baby, that's what I thought at the time. But I couldn't forget you, any more than you could forget me. Except it did get me down, when I cumc back and found out you were marrying Hamilton. When I got back lo San Francisco they had to pour me oft the train." Cassie told bim about Ellen. "Gosh, that was tough on you, Cassie." "Yes," she answered bleakly. "But divorce doesn't have to be such a painful thing," Mike went "Why don't you let me take on. care of the details? I know a fine lawyer in Indianapolis. He coulrt- handle it without a lot of. unpleasantness. Or — maybe you'd like to go to Reno. I don't like the way you look, Cassie — so thin. Your eyes are as big as dollars, and you're so pale. Reno would make a swell vacation for you. I'll even pay for things, if you'd let me." "Mike!" She couldn't help laughing. It all somehow seemed hysterically funny. Parker had bought her trousseau and paid fo the wedding, and now Mike wanted !o finance the divorce. She laughed harder and harder, until Mike reached over and slapped her hard. And then she relaxed, and fell very tired. Mike said he guessed they'd better go home. heart jumped witli i <Jrcad \vlifn she saw Parker's ) car •« ihe driveway.

Loni was wearing ionic new blue hostess pajamas hat matched her eyes and chin" to her curves excitedly. As usual she was leaning on the piano, linging soiuelhing in her husky, sultry voice, while Parker played. M'!:3 caught Cassic's arm, as llu-y hcsflated unseen in the door- ; way. "Mmrn—how long h:>s t:,is ! been going on?" he whispTifl. 'No wonder you're getting a divorce." Cassie felt n flare of impatience toward Mike. She felt iired and disheveled too, in spite of the new brown suit. It was almost too much to come in and find Leni looking so exquisite, cool and charming. Or maybe it was Porker, looking at her in that curious way as ho rose, that made her feel unstruni*. His look said plainly, "Well, you didn't lose much time, did you?" Tho moment was horribly embarrassing. Only Leni had any presence ol mind. She look Mike's hat, nnd then led him to ilie davenport by the fireplace and snt him down and curled up beside him lo talk. "Well, Parker," Cassie said, "how's the new joh?" She fivi's oft her hat, feeling a\vkw.ird. Vnu didn't kiss your husband any more, did you, after h_- stipResicd divorce him, not even though you were somehow glad lo FCC him after he'd hecn away a couple OL weeks. He sat down at ihc piano n!i;iin, striking a few aimless chords "Splendid. I like it." He didn't smile and there \vas a grim look ahout his moiuli.
