JAN. fl, 1947 DREW PEARSON -^. •:. • ON"-"-'-:-- - ••• ^ °the WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND New German Flc;g Drew Pearson Says: Truman Tries To Beat Republicans To Punch; Labor Should Reform Itself Before Congress Forcibly Reforms It; Labor Should Appoint A Judge Landis For Jurisdictional Disputes „ Washington—Tliose who sometimes sit in on White lloiiso councils say that with most of the Tinman brain Irustors it's now n race to bent the Republicans to the punch. 7t' the brain trnstors think the Republicans are ijoiny to make a certain move, they urge the President to rush in and do it first. Tlio two men most in :i dither to yet under the wire ahead of the Kopublicanw are: Secretary of the Treasury Snyrler and lojrtil adviser Clark Clifford. It was SnydeV and Clifford who were chiefly responsible for ending 1 part of the war powers—just as the Republicans had about decided tho war powers would' have to be continued. Several weeks ago, Snydor and Clifford were arguing with Wilson Wyatt, retired Housing Admlnls- trator, about the termination of all price control!). "Wo'vo got to remove them," nrgued Secretary Snydcr. "J3e- c'luae if we don't, the Republicans will do It for us." "All right," countered Wyatt, For Engagement Rings and Ring Sets U'.s .-Mwiiys ...

Morry-Go-Itound Program for Labor Organized labor today Is somewhat In the same position as the man In the well-known halitosis advertisement, "even .your best friend won't tell you." Labor's enemies, of course, don't hesitate to tell labor what's wrong with it, -but many of tabor's real friends, including even -certain li- bor leaders themselves, haven't had the nerve to speak out. publicly regarding labor's defects. Result is that unless labor doos | its .own housecleaning, unless it takes the lead for constructive leg- Illation, it faces one p< the worst legislative setbacks in history. For about two decades this writer has vigorously championed the basic rights of labor. And while it may not be popular to give advice, here> some Ideas for constructive labor reforms \ \vhich can head off drastio legisla- j tlon: I I. ,rurlsdk:tlonul Ntrlke.t should be outlawed. .There id no reason for making the public suffer because civil war rages be'tween two labor unions.

Also somo of the fanc> .votaries paid to members of tho L,;i family and others might be discouraged. •I, iJibor unions mujt be re- ft|>on.tlblo for the contracts they sipn. Employer* have the right to llgurc their costs in advance, and when a conti'act U signed, he knows what his costs ore. This Is ;i point Phil Murray 'has hammered home many times. If In- hor viMntos a contract It must suffer a financial penalty. ',, trtlllty <ll*putc.H Hhould bo settled by compulsory arbitration. When It oomcn to electric power, street railways, telephones, nnd tho railroads, the public should not be made to .suffer because labor and capital cnnnot asreo. In the- end, the disastrous Pittsburgh, power strike was- settl«l by arbitration — IhouRh only at for heavy financial loss, to the workers involved and after "'giving a black eye to labor Konernlly. • A.

Gentlemen From North Carolina On Sept. 10; 1945, this 'column told how the Coxc- Lumber Company of Wadosboro, , N: C.,. had criminal charges brought against it by .-the OPA for lip-grading lumber; also how Seriatorlalnominee Clyde Hocy nf North Carolina intervened on behalf of the Coxo Lumber Company and helped. ., get the criminal charges -dropped. • - '. ' Senator Hoey acted as attorney for the lumber company shortly after he had been nominated Cor the Senate, tantamount .to election In North Carolina, Had he acted after becoming Senator, he himself would, have been subject to criminal prosecution, Whether due to Hoey's influence or other factors, the J.u slice Department finally dropped the criminal ch-»rges agai-nst.the Coxe- Lumber Company —much to the disgust of the OPA. Senator Hoey, a former Governor of North Carolina, happens to bo the brotliei-In-law of O. Max Gardner,, also -a former Governor or North Carolina, now leaving his post ot Undersecretary OL' tho 'i reui- nry to become Ambassador to Great Britain. A fine public servant, Max'Gard- ner -hau been in direct charge of the Bureau of Internal Revenue and all income tax cases. And the other day a new case agaiiist Tom Coxe,' president of the same Coxo Lumber Company came before the Bureau of Internal Revenue^ this time on,a charge of income tax evasion. .This, time, however, Mr. Coxe's fate was in the hands of a different -North Carolinian. When an' underling .asked Undersecretary Gardner what should be done ' regarding Coxe, Gardner replied: "If. 1 he's guilty, prosecute." The Coxe case h^is now been sent to the Justice Department for criminal prcsecuton. A calendar !M Grants foi . •• • ' . .\ '?)•__' ' ' . ' '.!*'. today, tfc&brrow and everyday , , !
