E SIXTEEN ft Labor Courts Proposed for US. Two Republicans In Senate Point to Need for Justice ? WASHINGTON, Mnroh 20. — (UP) — Two Republican senators asljed Congress today to establish a federal labor court system to set- to certain types of disputes "on tl»« basis of justice Instead of on the basis. ol strangleholds." r^Thd proposal come from Sens. Homer Ferguson, n., Mich., aiM-M. Alexander smith, R., N. J. They introduced legislation to create 11 twee-Judge labor relations courts Ij-ilh jurisdiction over: .1...Disagreements ns to interpretation and enforcement of existing contracts. .2. Interpretation O f existing la- bov legislation. . I" Senate speeches, both Ferguson and Smith pointed out that Uialr bill did not cover disputes over wages and other terms of new bargaining contracts. f Smith estimated, however, (lint the courts would have Jurisdiction over three-fourths of all labor i!ls- BUJcs. -.-Ferguson told the Senate that the nation ivas In n state of "near anarchy" in its labor relations and that government had lost the oow- ! n to govern. I .-"The time has came to settle! >,nese disputes on the basis of jus- | j!ce instead of on (lie basis of strangleholds." he said. ?.Smith, A Senate Labor Coinmil- tfifl member, took the same line. He said labor disputes had been allowed to threaten the pence of so- -"\Ve have permitted labor-management disputes to come to a cicnci end and to be settled by the nile of ' force," smith salci. i:.V,We have not made a statesmanlike effort to flnj out what Is right nnd just, but we hove rather . left the.matter to the determination between the parties of who is strongest in a knock-down, ding- out struggle." :-.Smith said he and Ferguson also were studying the question of "national paralysis- strikes In which "Ihe interest of the public must be Paramount." He said they opposed government seizure of properties in such eases. .I'.'But we do believe we may be able to find n special procedure for those cases where the health and safety of tlie people arc riffcctetl and where it will be necessary for the government, preferably thrown the courts, to act in order to fnain- -oln the status 0.110 nnd continued production pending an equitable adjustment of the disputes," Smith 1 said. I i .Smith told a reporter thai he' envisioned soine procedure like a rourt "receivership- rather than' the wartime method of government seizure. .The bill would establish 11 dis- -nct labor courts, each with three judges. Two would bo attorneys and one would be a layman. £.Much 'of our knowledge of fli-hl has been learned from birds. Now 1CamlnB m ° rc 'Serious' BLYTHEVILLE (ABK.)
