"We intend to cover everything from the operation of narcotic rings which sell their wares to high school students to the baby adoption racket which has grown out of juvenile delinquency," the New Jersey senator said. Hendrickson said he expects some concrete recommendations for law changes to come out of the inquiry.

"It makes little difference whether the act of Congress was passed in 1866 or 1953. so long as It is the law of the land. The attorney gen oral has not only the right but the duty of establishing as a matter of policy that the FBI should investigate the alleged violation of such acts ..." Hoover added that. In the cases of which the governors complained, the FBI merely was doing its duty instructions from the Department of Justice. Such investigations, he added, will continue whenever ordered by the Justice Department.

New Labor Law Stirs Alabama Workers' Leaders Hope to Head Off Demonstrations BIRMINGHAM Ifl — Alabama labor leaders today urged union members to avoid mass walkouts In protest against the newly, enacted "right to work" law. R. E. Farr, CIO United Steelworkers district director here, said last night he had heard of no such demonstrations "I hope they won't do that," he said. Farr said yesterday after Gov. Gordon Persons signed the statute that he "would not be surprised' at a general strike In steel and iron plants of the Birmingham and Labor leaders had been reported planning a state-wide rally at Fairfield, but Alabama CIO Council Secretary Eugene Wells .later said no such meeting would be held. Wells said the Jefferson (Birmingham) CIO Political Action Committee would meet Sept. 5. and he would make an "important announcement" at that time. Farr said labor organizations will try to overthrow the law in the courts. The new Alabama statute patterned alter a Virginia measure which has been upheld in the U. S. Supreme Court. It outlaws the union shop and similar labor agreements as contrary to "the public policy of Alabama." Steve Latham, president of the Alabama Federation of Labor (AFL), said, "the governor has weighed all the issues of the bill and has done what he thought best in the interests of the state's citizens. "No Malice" "There is no malice on the part of the Alabama State Federation of Labor toward the governor for his signing the 'right to work' bill." D. Trotter Jones, executive vice- president of the Associated Indus- ries of Alabama, predicted labor unions will be defeated in any court attack on the controversial measure. The "right to work" law pro- libits compulsory union membership contracts, but also protects employes from being fired because hey do become union members.
