R.'s Labor Peace Effort Falls Short CONVENTION HALL, HOUS TON, Tex., (U.E - President Roose velt's first public move to end organized labor's three - year inter nal struggle today was followed by fLjjew declaration, ot waf .byPresl - dent William Green of the Ameri can Federation of Labor against John L. Lewis, rural C.I.O. chieftain. In a letter to Green, the presi dent urged that the federation's an nual convention, in session here, "leave open every possible door of access to peace and progress in the affairs of organized labor." He warned that continued labor warfare is certain to bring - .about a reaction which will "ijtjure the workers themselves." The delegates greeted the com munication with a smattering of applause. Green said it was "a most pleasing and satisfactory" response to his invitation to the president to attend the convention. Later, however, after Joe Ozanic. head of the Progressive Miners of America, which was chartered by the federation after Lewis' United Mine Workers union was expelled, had accused Lewis's agents of heating A. F. of L. organizers in West Virginia, Kansas and Kentucky, Green again arose. "Here we have violence, assault, attack not employed by operator's thugs, but by men employed by labor union," he shouted. "We have them beating up our men nigh unto death. Then tbey proclaim the right of free speech, free press, free assemblage. "We are going to support this fight to bring the Mine Workers freedom and independence. Come what may, we are going on and on until we win the fight. Ames Principals to Attend Meet Superintendent Jordan L. Lar son, 'erne M. Young.
