THURSDAY, DECRMBEK 22, BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE ELEVEN Tail-Hartley Law Still Major Issue President to Renew Repeal Demand But 1950 Action Doubtful By Marvin i,. Airowsmilh WASHINGTON. Dec. 22—W— Repeal of the Tart-Hartley act still Is President Truman's No. 1 objective In die labor field. But democratic leaders in congress say they look for the law to slay on the books tlirotmli 1050. Mr. Truman's lieutenants, at the capitol have Indicated clearly they j|ulan to advise the President It #7Jjrobably would be futile to try again for repeal—or even drastic revision of the law—at the new session opening Jan. 3. "So far as 1 can see. we just don't have the votes," one of the party chiefs told a reporter. Thus repeal appears almost certain to be one of the stormy issues of next year's congressional election campaigns, just us it was in the presidential and other contests hi 1918. The Truman Democrats are;i't unhappy about Hint. On the coht- rary. many of the mfell the party's chamr.s for success at the polls will lie enhanced if the Tart-Hart Icj argument can be put to. the voters ngain. Itppeal ail vocal ps have contended all alons that .Mr. Truman's election and Hie overrun last year of Ri'imliliran control of Congrr.s.s constiliiii'/l an man- (Uite frrnn the people for the scuttling of the Taft-Hartley measure. They arc working fur a big enough margin in the Senate and Hoiisr In 1D51 to achieve it. The administration lost its figh for repeal at the last session because a big bloc of Southern De- moerats lined up with the Republican opposition, while only a feu Republicans voted with Trumal Democrats. The GOP foes of repeal, led by Senator Aatt o[ Ohio, have arguei that the majority of the voters .Jfjwain the essentials of the Taft. ^Hartley lav.- kept. Taft himself, whose campaign loi re-election ne.vt year already I. in high gear, says he has foum that many rank-iind-file Ohit workers arc against erasing the present labor law. He says man; of those who do want it repealci "have a prejudice airainst it, gro\v ing out of labor newspaper propa gamla." The dim prospects for erneal thi year don't menu Mr. Truman wil not ask for it in the State of th Union message he is preparing to Congress. Both sides expect a re newed demand, anrt there may eve be a stir toward carrying it out- one to which the Democrats en point in the congressional catn paiens.
