PAGE 4 THE MORNING HERALD, UNIONTOWN, PA., WEDNESDAY. NOV. 18, 15- 'Togetherness' a wt Wrr Vmshipss "totretherness" may be the answer to problems in industry-wide collective bargaining imposed by powerful unions. Having failed to curb industry-wide strikes by obtaining revision of the Taft-Hartley Act, . business is showing what has been called "a riuickening tempo in employer-initiated mutual defense." The pact announced by six of the nation's biggest airlines Nov. 2 is a case in point. This is a mutual aid arrangement to share extra revenues when one or more of them is shut down by a strike. The agreement was signed by American, Capital, Eastern, Pan American, TWA, and United. The plan was filed with the Civil Aeronautics Board on Nov. 3. The Civil Aeronautics Act of 1938 requires CAB to issue orders approving or disapproving agreements among airlines on the basis of "the public interest." These include "pooling or apportioning earnings," and "other cooperative working agree ments." The airlines understanding was announced in the midst of a strike against Capital by the International Association of Machinists going into its fourth week. But behind it lie two years of industry study aiming at joint labor-management bargaining. Robert T. Quick, a district IAM president, on Nov. 3 called the plan "a union-busting move." Major Examples The Big Three automobile manufacturers General Motors, Ford, Chrysler made no secret of their solid front in collective bargaining this year, terminating in essentially sim--ilar settlements in September and October. The Big Three in steel U. S., Bethlehem, Republichad bargained jointly with United Steel-workers two years ago. And industry-wide bargaining has long been accepted in other industriesnotably clothing and coal. Just before a newspaper strike was averted in New York City, The New York Times had announced, Oct. 30, that even though it should not be struck it would suspend publication so long as any writ union refused to cross picket lines at any newspaper in the metropolis. Other papers immediately followed suit. Of the airlines agreement, the Wall Street Journal has commented editorially: "It is one more indication of the way union monopolistic practices can force industry into doubtful practices of its own." Certainly it will raise legal questions, though the U. S. Department of Justice so far has refused comment. As for the agreement in New York, inasmuch as newspapers are quasi-public utilities and the trustees of the people's right to a free press, the newspaper unions could argue that they have a moral responsibility to publish whether or not a competitor is struck. It Happened Last Night By EARL WILSON mm WILSON Shows Strength An another front, business was again urged, Nov. 4, to get into politics "with both feet." William A. McDonnell, U. S. Chamber of Commerce president, declared: "We need a working majority in Congress which will agree that the government's integrity depends upon a stable currency." The specific target was -inflation. McDonnell cited as one of the major causes of this "implacable enemy of our system" the "mo-nrv,lv nowpr" of labor unions. The warning, coming on an election day in which the AFL-CIO showed its full strength for the first time since the union merger of 1955, carried peculiar significance. On the same day five of six business-sponsored state right-to-work referenda were voted down. Not Like Grandpa Nelson Aldrich Rockefeller was named for his maternal grandfather, but is unlike Grandpa in almost every respect. The New York governor-elect is widely considered a "modern," which is to say "a liberal," Republican. Pen. Nelson W. Aldrich of Rhode Island (1841-1915), who died seven years after his namesake was born, was long the recognized leader of the G.O.P. Old Guard in the Senate. Sen. Aldrich was anathema to the liberal then called "progressive" Republicans of his day. Like, the father of Sen. John F. Kennedy (D Mass.), he early made himself a millionaire. In his 30 years in the Senate, he was the darling of every fellow Croesus. An ardent protectionist, lie fought against tariff reciprocity as ardently, and effectively, as he fought for higher import duties. lie was outstanding leader in Congress against reform measures espoused by the President of his own party. He tried to subordinate the Presidency to Congress as staunchily as the first Roosevelt was trying to eclipse Capitol Hill by the Whim House. Sen. Aldrich did perform one highly constructive, task : a detailed plan for fundamentally revising the banking and currency system. Although the Aldrich Plan was shelved in favor of the Federal Reserve system put across by a Democrat President, Wilson, some of the Aldrich proposals did carry across to Federal Reserve provisions. And in one respect, at least, the Senator was like his grand-pnn-naniesako: he had a most agreeable personality and considerable charm of manner. NEW YORK There's a story going around that Mike DiSalle the former Price Stabilizer just l,v.v4 Rnuernnr of fthin ws asked whether he'l be available for President in 1960. "I was available in 1950!" he supposedly replied. Mike just back in Toledo after visiting his daughter at St. Mary's in South Bend, and about to visit Fort Lauderdale actually said "ARE YOU KIDDING?" when I asked him the I960 question by phone. Born in Greenwich Village, a New Yorker who went to Ohio to make good, Mike will be "good copy"' from Columbus starting Jan. 12. Once when somebody said his political foe Sen. Bricker made a good speech, Mike said, "He should; he's been making it tor 30 years," Mike gave an intimate dinner which was crashed hy a political notable. Mike told the crasher, "I'd have invited you except that I was afraid you could make it." Conway Twitty. the hottest new singer in many months, has just been signed for a Perry Como TV spot by Don Seat of Tin Pan Alley who not only manages Twitty but gave him that melodic monicker. Twitty, real name Harold Jenkins, was a handsome fence-busting minor league ball player whom Seat heard about in Cincinnati and Nashville. Son of a Mississippi ferry boat skipper, who learned to strum the gittar in Helena, Ark.. Twitty writes his own songs and his big one, "It's Only Make Believe," is going to make him a Pat Boone and Johnny Haye in '58. "I don't know how I thought of that name for him." Seat says, "but when I mentioned it, everybody flipped," Everybody's still flippin'. Guess Montgomery Cliff isn't marrying Myrna I.oy after all. He was back at the Voisin with Libby Holman . . .

I have given away lots of pies, cakes and bread but I don't like to sell them ... it worries me maybe they don't get their money's worth.

TEACHER'S REPORT Here's a report from a teacher we know. Says she. "For me this fall started wilh a bang! (Wow!) One cute little toueh-lookine urchin wilh big ears and a prize fighting bravado swaggered in the kindergarten threw off his coat with great aplumb, then began to 'throw the entire kindergarten for a ,0?-' .... ii... hard tn demolish everything and everybody. He banged the wagon into some little girls he almost tipped over the heavy teeter-looter with children on it, he bumped on the head everyone who was in his way, he ran under the table and more such monkey business, pushed it up with his head, spilling beads all over the floor. Then he dashed to the ball basket, and started throwing balls at the plants and children. "When the 'cyclone' qnited down a hit and the other children and I found ourselves still intact, I silently, hut firmly took (he culprit by the hand and marched him off to unknown quarters. There in the hall) I told him that this would lie not only his first, but also his last day in kindergarten if there was any more monkey husincss, ever, "After about ten minutes of severe talking he finally agreed he would settle down. To this very day he is as quiet as a mouse." NICE PHRASE We like the phrase used by a little four-year-old about town. One evening her mother and father were dressed for a formal dance and they stopped to have Mary Ann a final good-night kiss. "Oh. mommy. I wish I had a whole room full of party dresses like that!" Mary Ann cried admiringly. "When f get hig I'm going to parties all the time." she clapped her hands in anticipation. "That," she said, "is the angel time of life!"

NEW YORK I -' Ever have trouble coping with your teenager? How would you like it if her were a genius? "It's not easy," says Mrs. Re-gina Fischer of Brooklyn. Her 15 - year - old son. Bobby, is a genius at chess. He won the United States championship at 14 and became the youngest international Grand Master in history this summer. His one dream is to snatch the world chess crown from the present champion, Russia's Mikhail Botvinnik. One of Mrs Fischer's definitely "not easy" moments came this summer when Bobby appeared to he stranded in Yugoslavia after his first international tournament. "He had a round trip ticket, but nobody made any reservations for him and he couldn't get a plane. I knew he's spent most of his money at the World Fair in Belgium and I was afraid the Yugoslav Chess Federation wouldn't go on paying for him after the "I went to the Yugoslav Embassy but it was the weekend and I couldn't find anybody, f tried to call Bobby, but mey saio ne nan left by train. "I was really worried. I knew he was loaded down with books and I didn't see how he could manage. He doesn't speak the languages. I could just see him sleeping in a train station somewhere and people stealing everything he had." But Bobby used his tournament prize money to get to Munich where he ioinid plane space home Chess is not a popular game and there are iio funds to send the American champion to tournaments. Bobby won two tickets to Yugoslavia on a television program. His 21-year-old sister, Joan, took the second. "Bobby doesn't like the idea of his mother going around with him to tournaments. Besides, I figured it would he better for me to he here in case anything was needed money, primarily." She laughed ruefully - a slender dark-haired woman with a smiling mouth in a gamine face. The Fischers separated when Bobby was 2 and Mrs. Fischer raised her two children on her earninps "I don't discipline Bobby. He's too hig. Anyway, there's not much to say. He comes home and sticks his nose in a chess book, stops to eat. and he's hack again until it's time to go to bed." The best medicine for executives, office workers, salespeople, professional people and others who live by Iheir wits s two , mi l of oxygen on the hoof two or three times a day. Say a brisk walk to olfice store or school each morning and again at the end of the day or later in the evening. A BRISK walk. That is. not a strut, The eminent Dr. Harry Emerson Fosdick, I read somewhere, absorbs a lew miles of oxygen on Ihe hoof nearly every day, or whatever replaces oxygen in the exhaust laden atmosphere of Fifth Avenue, and Fannie Hurst is "nut of her apartment at 6 o'clock every morning, taking her usual hnur-and-a-hatf walk through Cenlral Park." Whether Dr. Fosdick writes a sermon or Miss Hurst does a chapter of her next book or arranges her next TV show is no matter-in any case Ihe walk will insure a hotter job.
