rfrl Workers BULLETIN CLEVELAND, Nov. 2. CIO convention today expelled the United Electrical Workers, largest of Its so-called left wing unions. CLEVELAND, Nov. 2 WWThe CIO convention's right wing today snowed under all opposition and amended the CIO constitution to bar Communists from top offices and authorized the executive board to expel pro-Communist The convention also boosted the per capita tax1 paid by its unions to the CIO from eight cents to 10 cents per member per month a move which would add one mill ion dollars to the treasury for the big organizing war ahead.

Dig Lmvc nngia Expulsion of the left wing unions. as contemplated oy tne conven tion, is expected to touch off a big drive by the victorious right wing to grab off the rank and file membership ofihe left wing unions. Authorization to expel pro-Com munist unions gives the CIO's executive board the power to re move them at any time. The con vention itself could do the same thing, by a two-thirds vote, and resolutions were ready for that purpose, aimed at the United Electrical Workers. The executive board then can deal with other left-wing unions, probably after the convention.

The board was given the authority to expel any union whose policies and activities are found to be "consistently directed toward the achievement of the program or the purposes of the Communist party, any fascist organization, or other totalitrian movement, rather than the objectives and policies set forth in the constitution of the CIO." Convention Speaker Secretary of Labor Maurice Tobin was one of the convention speakers this morning. Walter P. Reuther's powerful resolutions committee reported to the convention it had approved "by overwhelming vote" the ex pulsion of the United Electrical Workers and the Farm Equip ment Workers. The two unions had pulled off Bolivia Expresses 'Profound Regrets' WASHINGTON, Nov. 2 The Bolivian government expres sed the "most profound regret today over the crash of the East ern airlines passenger plane and a Bolivia fighter here which cost 55 lives.

'They think they're not as good as the, city man," he concluded, "and there are some men In town who help them to think that" Calling the problems of farmer and city dwellers "closely related," he said the objectives of the people are the same "even when you cross the city limits."

The UE, with up to 450,000 members, and FE with another 20,000, will be the first to feel the right-wing axe.
