JANUARY 21. 1047 Hope For Labor Peace Two hopeful portents loom on the horizon. One is the growing opposition of the A. F. of I.*, to portal-to-portal lawsuits against cmpoycrs to collect retroactive overtime pay. With thcsei damage suits, largely Inf C. I. O. unions, already amounting to more than two billion, A. F. of U leaders advise against "radical action." Labor, a railroad union national weekly, and the Cleveland Citi/en, long published by the Cleveland Federation of Labor, made plain this attitude in comments that unions were using unfair tactics in suing now for something they were not smart enough to negotiate in their contracts. Also it is obvious that A. F. of L. officials believe such suits easily might push Congress into anti-labor legislation. The second cheerful sijgu on the labor front is tho restraint the? present Con- gross appears determined to use in labor enactments. Contrary to what many bad feared there seems a definite desire on the part of responsible loaders to safeguard labor's gainst with laws framed to check unfair strikes and to give employee groups equal protection with unions. A real effort may be shaping for more light, and less heat in the labor-management field. No Bonus Now Tt took a great deal of courage for 'President Truman in his annual message to Congress to say "I believe our program of benefits for veterans is now complete." The criterion of veteran legislation, lie added, should be not the number of veterans aided by money payments or the amount spent, but "the further contribution we enable our veterans to make to their country." Tn other words, the idea is to back Cfen. O. N. Bradley, Veterans' Administrator, in unwinding red tape and in making machinery already set up for veterans' welfare as efficient as humanly possible. When what is now blue printed for the veterans has been made available to them, then it will be time enough to think of the matter of bonuses: or of any other gift to them prompted by a sentimental desire to give them something—and thereby harvesting votes for thi! politician instituting such legislation. The nation wants to deal generously with its veterans to whom it owes its very life. But unwise bonuses at this time will not be a kindness for the burden of such payment could strangle national economy, and in tho end be paid for in hidden, as well as direct taxes by the veterans themselves. Rift In Alliance Till! clash over Senator Bilbo's scat is likely to cool the alliance between the Kepiiblicans and a group of Southern Congressmen. These Southerners* have boon voting with the Republicans for several years, much more regularly than many'Republican congressmen. The Republican move, to expel Bilbo must have made bis friends regard the 'Republicans as ingratcs. The Republican capture of Congress lias cost these Southerners their committee chairmanships. The two causes may considerably retard the growing »ion of the two groups. fu- Pacific Footholds It was interesting and reassuring to see a- House naval affairs committee at "Washington advising tho U, S, government to hang onto a long string of "stopping stone" bases in the Pacific, the other day. It was explained that such islands "if used in reverse" might be employed for improper purposes and he- come "stepping stones onto our continental shores." Nobody in this country -wants to keep harping on former wars, but it is sometimes necessary to po'mt out obvious i'acts of life by land and sea. Do You Remember? One Year Ago Senator William A.
