Conventions Tend to Cover Importance of Stee! Strike Three months HRO President Truman thought the steel strike was so serious he seized the steel companies. The U.S. flag flew at mill gates, and workers went hack to their johs. Then the Supreme Court said the seizure w a« •*Tong, gave the mills hack to their owners, and workers went out on strike again. Today the mst of the idle ateel mills was spreading far into the rest of the nation's economy, and the Office of De- fence Mobilization has warned the strike had "wiped out virtually all the gain so far from the expansion program that has been under way since Korea." But in Washington, it was as if in ruling that the seizure was illegal, the Supreme Court had also ruled there was no emergency. President Truman turned a deaf ear to proposals that he use the Tan-Hartley law and accused the steel companies of "conspiracy against the public interest." The CIO - U n i led Steel workers snatched at the accvisalion and used it as the basis of N'LRB charges against the companies —ironically, under the provisions of the same Tall-Hartley law Truman wouldn't use. The administration apparently has the idea it can safely nap in a rocking chair because nobody is going to pay much attention to an emergency while all that July polifkkin' is going on j,, Chicago. The administration might be in for a shock if Ihe nation comes out of the convention smoke and finds itself suddenly running short of automobiles, tin cans, washing machines — and. even worse, ammunition, tanks and military aircraft. Lobor's Not Only Friends Labor's League for Political Kduca- tion. the political arm of (be American Federation of Labor, ha? picked its first tavsretf for in.ii. They are Senators Hyrrl of Virginia, Hrewster of Maine and Kmiwhiiul of California. Tills is an opportune moment, tbere- foi'f;, to remind organized labor to gauge its political friends and its interests ir.ure carefully and more broadly (ban it lv:.« usually done in recent election years. Labor might consider, for example, v i-v!licc n man who understand? our cru- ' a! foreign affairs and votes wisely on t..ini is not, a better friend these days tl'Rii one who simply rubber stamps ev- ivy narrow piece of pro-labor legislation. And labor might remember the lesson of Ohio in 1950, when !t sought to defeat Senator Taft as "labor's chief enemy." Some 35 per cent of labor's own following spurned labor leaders' advice and vot'Cd their convictions «s whole citizens who were worried about many more problems than just the status of the Taft-Hartley law. American workers are complete human beings, not just jobholders. And a yes-man is not necessarily your hest friend, These lire things for labor's political chieftains to ponder. Hungry for News For another strike with different implications, take a look up in the northwest at Tacoma, Wash., where there hadn't been an issue of the cily's only paper, the News-Tribune, since Ihe pressmen walked out nearly' three months ago, Tacomans, hungry for the printed word, .eagerly snatched up an eight-page daily put out b.v idled jipw.snion, but there were only !|,IIOO copies for 80,000 renders. And there were no ads. Without the printed page to tell readers what was on the shelves, business in Tacoma stores fell off as much as 35 per cent. In its enforced idleness, Ihe News- Tribune marie dramatic proof that neivsi papers are just as vital to community life today ns they ever were, despite ail the claims of radio and television.

Many a Slip TUESDAY, JULY 15, 1052 Peter fdson's Washington Column — Republican Platform Seemingly Favors Both Sides of Many Issues CHICAGO — \ GO —(NEA)~ The Repub-| form completely ducks the conlro- .Iform on which the new i versy over the recommended level licnn plnuuim mi wiucn me new i versy over the recommended le presidential nominee must run for. of farm price supports It says in election is nn amnztng document, one place.

Nixon of California remarked "H isn't poing to make \ m a n y people h P. p p y. but it may not make anybody mart." Nixon should know-. He helped write it. ' I'etcr Kilion On a number al ke.y 'issues, it is almost Impossible to tell what the Republican platform stands for. due to Its apparent effort to take all sides of every mipslion. In the labor plnnk. for instance the GOP platform guarantees tn the working man "the righi to a job without a union." This is the great ope nshnp guarantee, so much ket place. This could nionn 100 per cent of parity for support prices, for all crops, both perishable and nonperishable. But in the next sentence of this plnnk. this program is limited to "commodity loans on nonperishable proriucls." And in the sentence afier that, support on per"locally con- agreements , ishables is limited to trolled" marketing only. The 1S:>'2 platform does such practices. Here again is an apparent contradiction In terms. No federal action in this field is possible if states rights are to be respected. On promotion of internationa! trade and reciprocal trade agreements the platform savs. ". . . We shall press for the eliminia- tion of discriminatory practices against our exports, such as a preferential tariff." In the next sentence it says, "our reciprocal trade agreements. . .will safeguard our domestic enterprises. . , against unfair import competition." Reconciling those contradictions might well challenge the ingentl- changp i ity of a slippery eel. How foreign me 1:10.1 piaum-m noes cnange i ny ol a slippery eel.

But Ihe 1952 pla{- form does nol mention the 90 per cent support level now generally in effect. And it seems to endorse 1(10 per cent support, without saying so. fn the snialf business section of the platform it says, "at the same time, we shall relentlessly protect . ... .................. ._.. ......... .. ....... „ opposed by Ip.bor iminn leaders 'our free enterprise system against and monopolistic and unfair trade, prac- " and the principal issue in the steel strike. But In the no.vl section nf the labor plank, it offers to labor unions Ihe rieht to establish "union shop" contracls with manncremerH. Hnw these done at the two things rould be nme time win take ae some tall explaining by the candi- tice.s This septus (o offer something of a contradiction in terms, for in an absolutely free enterprise system, it would be necessary to ban unfair trade practice laws which fix prices. On the civil rights plank, in the same way, the GOP comes out (or dale for the presidency. If he gets elected, it would lake some tail doing to settle the steel strike to aisu mases a wean stan m sup- please both manaaemenl or labor | port of federal legislation to furth- ilnions under cither or imifi planks, ier tair employment practices, with- On fnrm policy, the OOP plat-1 nut duplicating stale efforts to end states richl.s and federal antl-lynch- .. ing and anti-poll tax laws, and \ s also makes weak stab In sup- . . xo can ue eliminated while the tf. S. protection Is guaranteed against foreign Imports, all in the name of sweet "reciprocity," is almost impossible to figure out. The great foreign policy compromise worked out by John Foster Dulles with so much ballyhoo is a 1000 word-section devoted largely to indictment of the results from the Democratic administration ot foreign affairs. It does not mention bi-partisnn foreign policy. This could lead to as assumption that there would be no such thing it the Republicans win the election. As a whole, on both foreign and domestic policy, the sections in which the Republican platform minces no words and indulges in double talk are those which e well-deserved criticism to the Democrats for their blunders of the past 20 years. On that, all Republicans and many Democrats agree unequivocably. the Doctor Says — By EinVIN P, ,1ORT)AN. .M. I).

'If East had iept the ten of hearts in his hand this squeeze would have died aborning. West could keep spades, and East would hold the ten of heart*, and South would have nothing but regrets."
