(AP) — The CIO loiind fcslf -much mote at odds today with the government's home-front mobilization program than with its foreign policy. A resolution on domestic economic, policy submitted to the Nation- ill CIO convention contained a list of v. what the organir-atioq said should not be included in such policy. Such things as: 'l. Unequal sacrifices for waftfc earners compared \vith high Income groups, 3. Across-the-board curtailment of civilian production without regard t« military or civilian needs, 3. Credit restrictions when Ini pcee "inequitable burdens" on low- income groups. 4. Loopholes which permit "certain favored commercial interests" to escape regulation. The resolution, though not yet icUd upon, was certain of adoption. It declared: "Only a well-planned, coordinated prosram •mil assure full development of the nation's productive resources and their maximum utilization in meeting the nation's military and essential civilian requirements." Controls Needed The resolution charged that an "orgy of profiteering" by corporations has increased the need of price controls, li said the defense production act should be amended to enable the government to "deal effectively" with the problem o! inflation. As it is. It said,- tt would be possible to "freeze wage and sal ary workers in a disadvantage;! position." The convention yesterday adopted a resolution which, by and large, approved America's foreign policy. One complaint on both the foreign and domestic fronts was that labor has not oltc'n given enough voice at the policy-making level. The foreign policy' declaration reaffirmed the CTO's stand that only a "guns and butter" program will stem the tide of Communism throughout the world. "We must answer the propaganda of the Cominform not by pious slogans about. Democracy's virtues, but by.a bold program of social and economic action," It said. Such a program, it added, re- ouires mobilization of all resources '"to forge both the weapons of war to stop Communist aggression on the military [runt, and the took ot psacs to light jjoVEtty, hunger and injustice on the economic and social fronts." ' f Two Othst CoaipliW'.* •Ths resolution had i couple j other foreign policy complaints'be- sides the one about i lack o! ''labor minded citizens" it top levels.' It said recent changes in favor of Franco Snain ind Feron Argentina, would, in the long run, cause a'setback for Democracies. It ' =!=o said the European recovery program should be amended to help br'ns about higher living standards !E France, Italy and Western Germany. Ths C!p mobilization resoiutlon W2S much In line with proposals made before the convention yesterday by Secretary o! the Treasury Henry Morgenthau, Jr. He suggested a rollback of prices to pre-Korean War levels, but no wage controls, and higher taxes, particularly on corporation profits and incomes in the upper brackets. $142 Million Needed tor State Highways LITTLE ROCK, Nov. 22.
