2 i MONDAY, MAY' 9. 1955 UUh County. Utah"" DAILY HERALD Organized Labor Helps In Vote For Form Subsidies By LYLE C. WILSON United Press Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON '(UP) American farmers who prefer, high and rigidly fixed farm subsidies to the less er and flexible kind backed by President Elsenhower can thank organized labor for their triumph in the House. Last -week's margin of victory for high and rigid supports was a scanty five votes. The step-by-step record of the legislative contest points; to organized labor as the key factor in the administration's defeat. More specifically. President Walter Reuther and his CIO pro vided some xf th'e muscle which barely hoisted the Democrats to victory. ' Labor Tax-Cut Link Organized labor was similarly linked earlier in "this session with Speaker Sam Rayburn in pushing a $20-per-head tax reduction through the House. Taxes and farm. subsidies are the hottest political issues around, short of war and racial discrimination ' The successful and active partnership of the House Democratic leadership with these most powerful political forces in the U.S. is not new. But it is a continuing and effective trend. It is acutely interesting the numerous individuals' in this country who hope to see a con siderably left-of-center farmer-la bor party develop here, i Reuther Is among those who fair ly may be counted as moving to ward that end the substitution of coalition for one of the current major political' parties. As the trend is now, that would be the Demo cratic Party. Reuther's strategy is to align his organized labor consumers with farmer producers, pach to support the legislative ends of the other. : S Reuther Agriculture Witness Reuther appeared b e f o r e the House N Agriculture Committee In Fcbryary to support the high rigid farm, subsidies proposes Dy ay burn and his -party. Some persons called Reuther's statement the most effective delivered during committee hearings. The committee voted to Junk the administra tion's lower, flexible subsidy pro gram Thereafter organized labor turn ed the beat on Capitol Hill. Its representatives went to the big city representatives whose consumer voters perhaps, might want lower subsidies on what they eat rather than (higher. But the labor lobby ists could offer the powerful support of their unions for the higher subsidy program So, too, can labor lobbyists now go to many farm district represen tatives and argue that labor's leg islative projects merit support in return for big city votes given the farm 'bloc last week. .That is a process known as log-rolling or you-vote-for-my-bill - and - I vote-for-yours.; .It is practiced by all politicians, pressure groups and organizations. Some do it well and an avowed farmer-labor politic all some do not. Labor is good at it. t Jean Hagen Gambles With TV Career In Sexy Movie Role !
