MONDAY, NOV. l<j, 195* Labor May Be Ready To Enter Into Fight for Overhaul of Controls • By ROWLAND EVANS JR WASHINGTON W) — There were Indications today that organized labor Is growing restive under continued wage controls and might j, toon be willing t o join those who )t, think the wage-price program Is •'•' outdated. No decisions have been made yet by top officials of the CIO and the AFL. But the CIO is expected to outline Us views at Its convention starling next week In Los Angeles. Union labor has been one of the strongest advocates of the price »nd wage controls program which went Into effect In January, 1951 «ix months after the Korean War started. But union spokesmen have consistently pleaded for tighter price controls and slacker wage regulations. >:. . Some Favor Junking. Some top labor figures are now believed to feel that if the whole program were scuttled organized labor would profit: that any gain from the right to negotiate wage increases not subject to government modification would outweigh • ny loss incurred from an upward price movement which might follow an end of price controls. One -sign of labor's restlessness came last Friday, when, it was noted, a labor member of the WOG Stabilization Board asked the board to adopt a resolution recommending that Economic Stabilizer Roger Putnam exempt the West Yv Coast shipping industry from al: %•/ wage controls.- This motion, made after the WSB re/used to approve a 5 per cenl wage hike agreed to between the Pacific Maritime Association anc the AFL Sailors Union, was de- Jeated by industry and public members of the WSB. All labor ' me'mbers present voted for It. . Had the motion been adopted, . requests for the exemption of other workers from wage control would • likely have followed. Appeal Studied High government officials were known, too, lo . be examining the - possible effects of eliminating wage and price controls despite the fact they do not yet feel that inflationary pressures have disappeared. Putnam is now studying an appeal from the soft coal industry and John L. Lewis, president of the United Mine Workers to overrule the Wage Stabilization Board and approve the full $1.30 daily wage boost the industry agreed lo give:Lewis's 315,000 bituminous miners. The WSB cut the bituminous raise to $1.50. contending that . any more would damage the anti- Inflation program. Wage and price controls are now 1 due to expire April 30. Barring 'a major change in the "international situation, they are not expected to be continued—at least in their present form. If he wanted to, President Truman could slop the wage and price controls program dead. He has that power under the Defense Pro MOX Show Starts Weekdays 7:00 Sat.

Supreme Court Rejects Claim of Bfythevilfe Man The Ark»nsss Supreme Court today upheld a Mississippi County Probate Court ruling which rejected a claim of Clem O. Trantham for S50o from the estate of his father N. w. Trantham of Blythevllle who died last Dec. 21. Mr. : Trantham asserted the money was due him as the balance on a sum of $1.000 under a written agreement with his father made In 1945. Clem Trantham's stepmother, Beulah. executrix of the estate, 1 disallowed the claim on the ground the agreement was superceded by a will executed June 13, 1951.

WEIZMANN (Continued from Page 1) he was re-elected president of Israel In November, 1951. He had become nearly blind before Ilien but had carried on with his work In broadcasts'today of America's tribute, the people of Isrnlc heard President Truman's statement thai "mankind has lost an able leader " Truman said Weizmnnn's "devotion to the establishment of a homeland for Jewish people, both before Its realization and as the head of the new government, has brought him the respect and gratitude of millions. He was a man of wisdom and I was honored to know him." Britain's Queen Elizabeth messaged, her "deep regret," and Prime Minister Churchill said, •The world has lost a distinguished citizen anil Israel a faithful son." The homeland for the wandering Jews that Welzinnim nurtured and saw grow in the Middle East was a dream of his boyhood in Russia. He was. born near Pinsk, on Nov. 27, 1874, one of 12.children. He studied in rtussla and Germany and taught in European universities, among them the University of Manchester in Britain, where he became a naturalized citizen in 1010. In Britain during World \Vur I, the great chemist discovered a way to produce synthetic 'acetone for explosives: He spearheaded the drive for a Jewish nation "as a striving but moderate president of the World Zionist Organization. Soon after Israel became a reality in 1948, he was chosen its first President.

MURRA (Continued from Page 1) held concurrently with the presi dcnoy of the parent CIO. There, he spoke with energy o! labor's gains, promised "whole some support to any admlnlstra lion Ihal has In mind constructive measures for the common people • and defied "special groups" lo lake away labor's gains. While his advocacy of Roose veil New Deal and "Truman "fair Deal" policies wns well known rtcnlh sealed his position on future CIO politics. An early backer of Adlat Steven son for the presidency, Murray de dined comment last week whei Stevenson and the supporting CIO's Political Action Committee wen down to defeat at the polls. "1 will indulge myself the lux ury of comment on the bcdlan of the last three (election) months at the National Convention in Los Angeles.", he told steer workers Saturday night. May Be Postponed That convention was to open a week from today, but as the ClO'f top leadership turned toward Pitts burgh and Murray's funeral (here Thursday, there were Indications it would be postponed. The CIO's political stand and « successor to Murray will be the two big questions of the conven tlon. Some unionists want the organ! zation (o get out of political ac tlvity and say the'political Action Committee's campaigning did the union movement more harm thai good. Others want the politico arm strengthened. As for Murray's successor, much of the speculation Is centered on (wo men—Allan S. Haywood, veteran CIO executive vice president and Walter Reuther, United Auto Workers president. Hnyu'ootl, long a stalwart In the CIO's organizational campaigns, is a veteran administrator. But his age, 64, could work against him. Reuther, 45, is popular and energetic.
