Ad Litem (SEAL) Nov. 11, 18, 25, Dec. 3 ORDINANCE NO. 610 Fair Enough By Weitbrook Pegler Copyright, 1946 By Kino Features Syndicate. New York. Nov. 18—I was one of the first lo object to the New Deal union policy, which for years I have carefully refused to call a labor policy because I regarded that as a sly and deceptive mis- jomer. For the sake of argument, I will admit thai I was one of Ihe leaders in the long and, at last, successful, campaign to discredit the Wagner Act and expose the hidden iniquities of the political union movement. Senator Ball, of Minnesota, a Republican, formerly a political reporter and known as a Stassen liberal, is reported to have announced that he intends to move for a national open-shop law. Other members of the new congressional majority have in mind a number of remedial proposals, but as yet I have discerned no whole program of reform. I don't want to disparage the plans of these men in advance, but I do agree with some of the professional unioneers and my colleagues on the lefl lhat to disrupt the union movement snddenly would be to for grabs. throw everything up What, then, does George Spelvin, American, suggest ? First of all, I would repeal the Wagner act on the honest ground that it has failed in its professed purpose to facilitate and stimulate interstate and foreign commerce by developing strong unions which, in turn, would reduce strikes and other "1 a b o r disturbances" through reasonable bargaining between industry and the representatives of the union. I doubt that Senator Wagner ever sincerely believed his law would have that effect and I am convinced that he intended it as a pretext to develop a money-raising political subsidiary of the Roosevelt party, possibly, he didn't fully foresee the evil effects of this development, but he is neither stupid nor blind and not even he can have the effrontery to say today that his law has achieved its professed purpose, or to deny the effects it did produce. As a substitule we mighl adopl a federal law forbidding employers lo discriminale against workers because, all other things being equal, they are members of unions or because they advocate the organization who of union desire to to represent those join.

"other things being equal," I mean lo provide that an incompetent or mischievous fellow should not be protected in his job by his union card, as the case has been under Ihe Wagner Act. Then, as a balance, we should decide, as the voters of three states did recently, lhat an employer in interstate commerce must not discriminate against an applicanl or an aclual employee because he refuses to join a union or drops his membership .This is called the "open- shop" law, usually in a very nasly lone of voice. It has its faults, as some respectable intellectuals have pointed out in very studious books and papers. But Mrs. Frances Perkins herself once approved the open-shop in principle in a quick and mumbled paragraph of a speech to a national convention of the American Federation of Labor. She Ihought persons who would refuse to join and pay their share of the money, and sacrifice for benefits won by organization must be queer ones, bul admitted that even queer ones have rights and that one of these rights was involved here. She seemed sheepish about this heresy and, as far as I know, never mentioned it again. The /present situation makes union Officials lazy, .pompous, luxurious 'and bossy. When they had to hustle for members and win over the individuals by appealing o their self-interesl and nobility, hey earned their money and union- sm was a cause. But under the Wagner act the government drove millions of workers into their unions as cow-pokes herd cattle and all they had to do was collect he dues, help themselves to big salaries and enjoy their importance. They came to regard the •ank and file as subjects, not Jel- ow-workers, and some unions have special laws recognizing the un- touchability and personal preciousness of these high officials. They Became kings, really. The worker •mew he had to be a member or )e a bum and anyone can see how .his equation would affect the vain and selfish personalities of fools. The union kings thought they were working when they went royally around the country, not Jorgelling ;he gambling season in Florida, making speeches, receiving their local and regional viceroys and accepling homage from polilicians who were dependenl on Ihe organized union vole and union campaign conlributions.

Texas Christian University's rapidly improving Frogs, who dropped a 3-1-14 decision to early in the season, the Porkers blanked Texas, 14-0, Saturday to knock the Steers out of the running for a title tic and will lake on Hicc al Houston next Saturday. Rice retained its title chance by eliminating Texas A. & M., 27-10 Saturday. Arkansas, which lambasted Southern Methodist, 13-0, to sew up at least a tie for top honors, was in the midst of Cotlon Bowl specu- lalion loday. A precedent set in 1940, it followed, would give the Razorbacks the honor of being host team in Ihc Dallas saucer even if Ihc Owls tie them for Ihc crown . That year SMU and A. & M. lied but SMU withdrew from Ihc Cotton Bowl picture because it had lost to A. & M. Arkansas defeated Rice, 7-0. From Dallas last night came unofficial word lhat this precedent probably would be followed and Arkansas given the Bowl bid even if the \Owls whip TCU and Baylor in their remaining games. The possibility that the winner of the Georgia Tech game would be the visiting was mentioned. Nov. team 30 also 'Waiter," said the fussy diner, "I want some oysters.

"Whal will Ihe title be?" asked the professor patiently. "I will call it popular ignorance" the sludent replied. "I know of no one more compet- cnl lo underlake it," quietly retorted the professor. from court decisions, they turned out in their official union publications some of Ihe mosl alarming nonsense ever put on paper and circulaled il al Ihe expense of Iheir subjecls as personal propaganda. I would enacl a law to compel all unions claiming legal righls under federal law lo revise their constilulions into conformity with the constilution of the United States. Most of them :"lput parls of the nalional conslilution. One puts loyally to the union above all other loyalties, including devotion to God, and many provide expulsion for "un-unionlike conduct," which includes remarks offensive to Ihe union bosses and Ihus culs across Ihe cilizen's right to freedom of speech. I would reslrict the purposes for which unions might spend their money, and specifically forbid contributions to political campaigns, even though they be disguised as educational campaigns, and make it necessary for them to get a unanimous vote of all the members, and no trick, par- liamenlary unanimity either to grant summer or winter estales or yachts or cash gifls to their high officers. Wo saw what a big shot Dan Tofain, of the teamsters, became under Roost-veil. Why nol? Roosevelt was driving hundreds of thousands of employees, including even young girl clerks, into his union, under compulsion to pay dues and like it, while old Dan could shoot off his big, loud mouth with a promise to spend out of the union treasury as much money as rnighl be required to win an election for Roosevelt. .This is bad and it vv:is one of the conditions that the voters had in mind when they rousted Ihe pro-union members out of Congress in such numbers as to constilute a repudiation of the Roosevelt way. These are big, general ideas, rather emphasizing defects of Roosevelt unionism than prescribing feasible legal enactmenls, and I will hear "il can't be done" from as many unioneers now as I heard from the employers' side when the Wagner act was up, and when clumsier sentences than this are written, Pegler will write them. But if we can't cure evils by law we have to endure them or put them down by force and I am sure the pleasantesl way, in Ihe opinion of Ihe majorily, would be lo cure Ihem by law. The eleclion rclurns show Ihe people don't want lo endure them anv longer, and force, as an arbiter of disputes, as practiced on the picket lines and in the great community riots of the C.I.p., is one of the evils lhal Ihe eleclion returns repudiated.

PRICE 5c COPY Strike Goal Pretty Futile One USES Turns to State Popular wrath is directed particularly at John L. Lewis because, with winter coming on, he has invited his coal miners lo quit working; but criticism is nearly as heavy against union leaders in other mass production fields. For one criticism covers the whole picture: Wages arc being pushed up without commensurate production in the big induslrial plants, adding lo Ihe already excessive supply of loose change rattling in Americans' pockets. Everyone likes money. But nearly all of us have a measure of caution, too—we want that money to be around for a long lime, nol jusl a day. And il Is Ihis sense of caution which tells us lhal Ihc big union leaders are wrong when, even loday, Ihey are pinning all Iheir plans on wages rather lhan production sheets. For if everybody has money and nobody has goods money-svagcs will be worthless. U was this fear, your correspondent Ihinks, which spilled Ihe Democratic parly in the congressional elections early this month. The warning should have been obvious to the union chiefs— and il was lo many of Ihcm, else the Democrats would have won Ihe elections. But Lewis and CIO's Murray keep right on talking along Ihe wartime line, regardless of the coming of peace and a Republican congressional victory- It doesn't make sense—and when a thing clocsn'l make sense Time will make hash out of it. -K -K * This week the United States Employment Service for Arkansas passed out of Ihc federal picture and became a part of Ihe stale government. • . This is an important step in the decenlralizalion of government, welcomed by most citizens. It will automatically remove some of the causes for criticism of a program lhat attomnlcd lo blueprint America from a single federal source. But Ihe swilch-back lo slale au- lhorily carries wilh it this rcsponsibllly: To see lo il lhat the service is honestly maintained as a clearing house for jobs and job information. Whatever mistakes the federal administration made it musl be frankly admitted thai most of the slalc governmcns did very lilllc on Ihc subject until the long arm of Ihc U. S. government came along.

But the two approaches are radically different. The Kremlin propagandists, who endorsed the enlire PAC slate in the 1946 elections, embarasscd most of the candidates who received their forthright blessing. Maybe Mr. Shaw cmbarassed Henry Wallace by proposing him for President in 1948. Bul he may have cmbarass- ed Mr. Wallace's opponenls, too. For there is some doubt as to the meaning and sincerity of the Shavian acclaim. Hope Seen in Meet for Big Four Ministers By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER New York, Nov. 19 — (IP)— Spurrec by Russian concessions, the grca power foreign ministers scorec major progress today in brcakinf -their long peace-trcaly deadlock 01 conlrol of Trieste. But they evidently were heade for trouble over proposals to re slricl voluntarily the use of the vet in the United Nations Securit Council. A series of swifl moving de velopmenls yeslerday and lasl nighl brought the brightest prospects yet for early and final agreement on the Italian and other former German satelite peace treaties, but simultaneously dimmed the outlook-for any •••substantial agreements by Russia on the veto issue. The main developments these: 1. In a Big Four meeting Mrs. Janice Pollock, 24, Chosen 'Mrs. 'America" during a contest held in Jackson, Mississippi, abdicated her, title to remain with her husband Mark, and their children, shown here in their Columbus, Ohio home.

While government supporters said the 353-to-O vole was a striking demonstration to the world thai Brilain backs her ioreign secretary, critics poinled lo the abslen tions as evidence that dependence. 2. In an earlier Big Five meeting (the Big Four plus China) Molotov, after some objection, agreed to consider proposals for voluntarily rcstricling use of vhe veto and to discuss them in future party policy healed. split is the far Labor from the dinner, but sent this message: . "The only message I have for the Big Five meetings, moment is that the Fabian Society, 3. At Lake Success, L. L, succeed Franklin Roosevelt _ as having made Russia a great Fabian stale, has now lo make Wallace President of the United Stales" II is quite possible thai Mr. Shaw wrote thai with tongue'in check and chuckle in beard, knowing thai his reputation is such thai Ihc message would be read with almost reverential seriousness—which it apparently was. But there arc a couple of amusing discrepancies beyond the exclusion of Mr. Truman in Ihe line of presidential succession. For one thing, the Fabian Socie- ly look ils name from a Roman general known, because of his cau- lion, as Fabius the Delayer. The Fabians chose the name because Ihoir policy was lo proceed wilh caution, slowly winning the British public's support by the logic of their beliefs, and shunning a shooting revolution as they would shun capitalism. It took the Fabians 00 years lo persuade Britons to elect a moderately socialistic government— assuming, of course lhal the P'abians are to be given credit for the change. The 60th anniversary dinner was designed, in part, to honor Ihc Fabians for their help, and Mr. Altlce and three other government ministers were on hand to lend their presence and speeches to sembly. the occasion. But GBS never mentioned the domestic victory, which he might well have considered the Fabians crowning achievement. Rather, he spoke of a triumph in Russia, where a government which gained power by means most repugnant to Fabian notions is the objecl of Ihc so- cialislic British government's frank and' outspoken dislike. So Mr. Wallace and his supporters will doubtless think twice before they print the Shaw endorsement on banners for the 1948 convention. And Mr. Wallace's oppon- enls will doublless use caulion in dismissing GBS wilh a laugh or condemning him as a foreign meddler For Ihc Pro- Wallace group can't be sure thai Mr. Shaw isn'l ! al Iheir man. And Ihe an- .....laceUes can't be sure lhal the old genllemenl isn't perfectly serious, if a litlle vague. Bul both groups, and all British politicians with them, can give thanks that Mr. Shaw has confined most of his politics to the philosophical plane. Think how confusing il would have been if one of Ihe mosl brilliant thinkers of our time (when he wants lo be) has spent his career aclively slumping the wards and precincts, with every candidate respecting him and clamoring for his praise, and none of them knowing for suro if G1!S was i'cr him or agin him. .a committee of the U. N. assembly indirectly approved this procedure by voting 3D to 6 lo sidetrack its own veto debate until the foreign ministers had lime lo act. However, a Sovicl spokesman lold Ihc commillec his government was flatcly opposed lo any changes in Ihe vclo system and objected to all assembly proposals aimed at modifying it. 4. Diplomatic authorities interpreted tiiis as meaning that Molo- lov probably would reject all Big Five suggeslions for voluntarily re- slricling use of the ycto, although he might go along with some Bril- ish, American and Chinese recommendations aimed not so much a 1 the vclo as at speeding up the work of the security council.

New Taxes for State Highway Use, Advised Little Rock, Nov. 19. —(UP) — New tax sources to raise an additional $11,500,000 annually for use of the highway department were recommended to Gov. Ben Laney's 37-man Highway Advisory commit- lee loday by the ways and means sub-commitee. The reporl, presenled by Chairman Louis Hurley, El Dorado banker, suggesled addilional revenue to be raised by more taxes on gasoline, whiskey, wine and beer, sofl drinks, chain slores, dis- lillale and diesel fuel. II also suggesled increases in the present sales lax, truck and trailer registralion fees, and levying a use lax. • . . No specific suggestion amounls -of tax raises was made, bul Ihe report called for a combination of these taxes or additional sources to answer the stale's need for more highway monies. Under Ihc proposal, any tax increases or additional taxes wouk jo presented to the people al the nexl general eleclion, or al a special eleclion ' after such legislation was enacted by the 1947 general assembly. The commitlee report also re- cqmmemded a revision of the Stale Highway department law providing for staggering terms of all commissioners, set up addilional :"unds for counties and cities, and outlined specific formulas ior the dislribulion of addilional funds on an equilable basis. Other changes in the highway law would include weight, Joad and speed limit regulations conforming wilh Ihose of adjoining stales, giving the highway commission the aulhorily lo remove roads from the highway syslem as well as to add new roads, and to require that engineers employed by the department be licensed under present laws.
