Dixie GOP to Make Most Of Demos' Tidelands Split A crucial issue in the current election campaign — crucial because it is the key to Republican hopes for a breakthrough in the solid Democratic front, of the South — is the so-called "tidelands" oil dispute. This is misnamed and often misunderstood. It Is tile basis for the reluctance of southern Democrats in Texas and Louisiana to support actively the Democratic nominee for President, Gov. Adlai Stevenson. Yet, while most people know the name of lite dispute, few really know what it is all about. Actually, it all boils down to a tug- of-war between the slates and the federal government over ownership rights to valuable oil lands which lie under water, mostly off the coasts of California, Texas and Louisiana. To call these lands "tidelands," as is commonly done by both the oil companies and the governments involved in the dispute is an error. Actual tidelands are narrow strips of land between the high and low tide marks and have always been the property of the states. The federal government has never marie any claim to them. The lands really in dispute are "offshore lands" — grounds which are always under water regardless of the lide level. And, basing its claim on four different decisions by the U. S. Supreme Court, the federal government lias taken the stand that these lands belong to the nation RS a whole, rather than to any individual state. Tins contention has brought bitter protests from California, Texas and Louisiana, which stand to lose billions of dollars if the lands are taken away from them. Texans are particularly angry about it, claiming that when their state, then a sovereign nation, entered the Union voluntarily in 1845, terms of the annexation agreement allowed her to keep control of her public domain, which stretches some 10i/j miles out into tha Gulf of Mexico. To settle the controversy, Congress has been working on three proposals, all of which are due to come up again at its next session. One would give all of the off-shore lands to the federal government. Another plan would overrule the Supreme Court and give the lands outright to the states. A third proposal, a compromise attempt, would give .the federal government all the revenue from the. lands which lie more than three miles off shore, with California, Texas and Louisiana getting » special share in th« money from those properliei ne*r«t th« •outline. Supporting th« view th»t the UncU ihould be federal property hav» been the Truman administration, Democratic candidate Stevenson and most labor and consumer groups. On the opposite side, feeling that federal ownership would be a clear violation of the "states' rights" principle, are Gen. Dwighl D. Eisenhower and the Republicans, the big oil companies who feel they can get a bolter leasing deal from the states than they can from Uncle Sam, and ft number of southern Democrats. The fact that Stevenson and the southern Democrats find themselves in sharp .disagreement on this issue is important from the election standpoint. And the southern Republicans, weak so their organizations may be, are out to make the most of it. Views of Others A Three-Way Partnership Giuliani Patterson, publisher of The Pathfinder, offers an Interesting and effective illustration ol the three-way partnership that has made America great. It goes like this: An old Arab, wanting to discover which of his three sons deserved to succeed him as head of the family, sent them to B distant land to •pend six months to learn what gift would contribute inoU to their father's welfare. Getting together In this distant land at the end of the period, one displayed a magic carpet on which people could be transported at amazing speed. Another exhibited a magic medicine lhat would cure any ill, The third had a magic glass through which one could look into any home in the world. • But they turned the magic glaAS on their father's home they discovered the old Arab dying 1 . Immediately they boarded tlie mafjic carpet and were carried home, where the magic medicine saved their father's life, Which was the most important gift? The magic medicine would have been of no help U they couldn't have returned home quickly — which would not have been possible without th» magic carpet. But they would not even have known of their father's slckne-«s had it not been for the magic glass. This, declares Patterson, ia the same situation that exists with capita), management and labor. The laborer Is worthy of his hire; It's good business as well as justice to pay labor ili jusl proportion. By the same token, management U entitled to its 'rewards and capital must have »n incentive for its risks. The three, captial, management and labor, are nol rivals but fellow play* rrs on the ifcme team. What benefits one help* the others and what hum one Injures the other two. ..,-,——Joplin (Mo.) Globe, 'C'mon, Cmon—Don't Take All Day" An American Dictator The American people should ponder serioui- ly some important words by former Defense Mo- bllizer Charles E. Wilson In a speech in New York City. Mr. Wilson was discussing his efforts to settle the recent steel dispute before it could cripple the nation with an unnecessary strike. This is irhat Mr. Wilson said: "I was overruled by a single man who was nev- e? elected or appointed to national office, but a man who exercises more control over the country than the President? the Congress we elected and the officers appointed under the Government." Mr. Wilson was talking about CIO Steelworkers Union Boss Philip Murray. The former defense niob:lizcr explained thai a "just solution that was best for all concerned" was offered. "But." he disclosed, 'the solution did not happen to give all that was wanted to one ilngle man. this man who is able to ride roughshod over the President and the people. "That one man gained his ends through the steel strike that he personally called. And he did It without regard for the hardships he caused the people he put out of work, without regard for the troops In Korea, and with full knowledge of the dagger he was holding at the back of all of our citizens." . Is that the way things should be run in the American Republic? Clearly, the next Congress has a great responsibility to the American people to take such action as is necessary to remove the nation from the irresponsible clutches of such powerful dictators. — Chattanooga News-Fret Pre.«s.

WASHINGTON —(NBA)— While everyone's [merest has been focused on the political campaign, the White House recently announced the appointment of Herman Lazarus to be a public *nem- ber of the new Wage Stabilization Board. The appointment barely got a mention in the papers. Pew people seemed to have heard of the name of Herman Lazarus and they cared less. Industry repre- publlc members of this board are supposed to represent neither management nor labor. They are supposed to be completely unprejudiced representatives of the general public. Principal criticism of the old Wage Board was that Its public members were not of this riistlnterested type. One of First Jobs was on NLRB Mr. Lazarus, 42, was born in Philadelphia. Graduating in law from Temple University, he took a master's degree at University of Pennsylvania. One of his first jobs was as a lawyer in the Phila- In delphia office °< lne ln! Washington started jnaking routine checks, however, and they Peler Ed»B !o launch a pro- est against confirmation of the appointment. President Truman's naming of Mr. Lazarus was a recess appoint-1 menl. It must be confirmed by he Senate when It reconvenes, but the new Congress may be slow getting nround to such things. bor Relations Board under the old Wagner act. He was transferred to Washington and. In 1942 became NLRE's assistant general counsel. When the Taft-Hartley labor legislation wns before Congress, It was Laza ruS who wrote the NLRB critical analysis of the bill. The substance of this analysis was later incorporated In the Senate minority report, presented by Sen. James E Murray of Montana.

One of his jobs was to collaborate on a pamphlet (or Public Affairs Institute, "Collective Bargaining."

For his whole record has been pro-labor. If be had been named as a labor member of tlie panel, there could sentence of the preface have been no objection. But the I "The attacks on trade unions' sistant to the President. been characterized by « lack of perspective and balance." On WSB Committee For Year For the past year Mr. Lazarus las been serving as public member of the Wage Stabilization Board's review and appeals committee. No one has raised any objections to any of his actions. In this capacity. It is further recognized that he has a perfect sight to oppose the Taft-Hartley law if that is his conviction. There Is nothing on the record against him, personally. He is recognized as a brilliant lawyer. Where the objection from industry representatives of WSB arises is in having anyone with this background serve as a epesentative of th public on WSB. This is cited is typical of the way in which the Trurnan administration has impaired confidence In the ability of the Wage Stabilization Board to make impar'tial decisions. The appointment of Mr. Lazarus has, in a way, been balanced by trie appointment of Colin Gardner III as a public member of,, WSB, replacing Tom Coman, Washington writer on labor affairs. Mr. Gardner is vice president and operating head of the Gardner Board and Carton Co., of Middleton, O. Industry representatives have of course raised no objection in this appointment. And so far, neither have the labor members. Other public members of WSB are Chairman Archibald Cox, of Harvard Law School faculty; Paul N.
