The Republican-controlled Con ;ress came in [or attacks by Pres dent George Meany of the AFL nd Secretary-Treasurer James B Carey of the CIO. Meany said on a CBS television Togram yesterday that "we have °-one backwards in America" since Labor Day a year ago, and he declared: "We think the 83rd Congress has failed to do the things that are vital to the welfare of the American people." Carey, on an NBC radio program, said the new Republican regime had brought benefits only to big business which, he declared, "reaped a multimillion-dollar wind- ill." Lloyd A. Mashburn, undersecretary of labor, said in a talk prepared for a California State Fair audience at Sacramento that despite a few troubled industries the over-all economic picture is bright, and he added: "The economy is today operating at extremely high levels and there is no indication that it in ibout to -turn down in the near Jr., Quantlco, Va.. suffered moderate injuries.

This healthy economic si uation can give workers cause fo celebration on this their holiday. On the question of labor unity Teamsters president Beck, receni ly named an AFL vice president said, "All labor must unite. W believe it will do so eventually We urge it to act now." "In this spirit," Beck said, "We call upon the coming AFL conven tion to invite the CIO and John L Lewis and his United Mine Work ers to come into the AFL before another Labor Day passes." The AFL convention opens „ in St. Louis Sept. 21. The AFL and the CIO have been discussing merger plans, without concrete ev idence of any major progress, bu Lewis has not been invited to take part. He said in a statement Saturday night that the mine workers he heads "express fervent hope that a year hence will see the laboi movement united and working as one for the economic, social and jolitlcal welfare of the people." He added: "However, this will not be real- zed unless the memberships oi Jie trade unions rise up and in- ;ist upon the leadership of their mlons consummating organic unity without 'conferencing' the matter o death." Greater Cooperation CIO President Walter Reuther, n a television program from De- roit, said inclusion of independent nions like the mine workers in nity plans would be discussed ater. To consider them now would oss too many disruptive Issues nto the AFL-CIO merger talks, e said. President David J. McDonald of he CIO United Steelworkers, In a ;atement issued at Pittsburgh, aid that "ever greater coopera- on between labor and industry to mprove living standards for an mericnns is taking place at the rass roots in more and more in- .ances." McDonald also called for "a •eater measure of labor unity ns n old to progress." Carrie Nation began her barraid- g activities In 1900 in Kansas. 1954 Democratic Convention Off? By JACK BELL WASHINGTON (AP) Rejection of » proposal for I 1M4 midterm Democratic convention wai forecast today among memberi preparing for a showdown on the Issue at next week'i rillj In Chicago. Dixie Democrats who have de- Stevenson will report on hli world clared their loyalty to the national party and their willingness to pledge support of Its I960 nominees Joined with others who are balking at the loyalty oath requirement in opposing the off-year convention idea. Sen. Hill (D-AIa), among others, said any such party gathering could only .breed disunity in advance of next year's congressional trip. Most Democrats would welcome the chance to hang a "big business" label on the Republicans in the 1954 campaign. Power Program Bltited Most of them also could agree with a blast yesterday by Sen. Humphrey (D-MInn) against what he called the administration': "lur- render of the public Interest" In elections. Hill, an active campaign- HS power program. er in 1952 for former Gov. Adlai E. [ "The administration's power polo. „„., _r Y>M m »c. ,,,.j _., lcy ^ _ ls ano t ner poorly disguised Stevenson of Illinois, has called on all party members to abide by the loyalty pledge. On the opposite side of the party fence, Gov. Hugh White of Mississippi, who wants the loyalty oath abolished, has attacked the midterm convention proposal. Sen. Hoey (D-NC), who isn't going to attend the Chicago rally Sept. 14-15, said he had written National Chairman Stephen A. Mitchell criticizing the proposal as being likely "to do more harm Lhan good." Most Southern Democrats apparently believe that any attempt on the part of a 1954 convention to adopt a set of principles for the congressional campaign would raise the controversial civil rights and states rights issues, causing a par,y split Hope for Agri-cement The Dixie candidates who will oe running for House and Senate seats next year seem to believe in many instances that 'the less said about the natonal party's stand on hese questions, the better will be .heir chances of re-election. There is some evidence that par- y leaders, recognizing this view, l attempt to soft-pedal intrapar- y controversies at the Chicago gathering and concentrate on is- ues on which all of the Democrats in agree. In this connection, Sen. Douglas D-I11), keynoter at a $100-a-pl*te inner Sept. 14, is expected to rip nto the Eisenhower administration or bringing "big business" into overnment in Washington. Douglas said in an interview he oesn't intend to attack either the dmimstration's appointees or their natives but "what I do object to s the philosophy of big business n control of government." Stevenson, the 1952 presidential ominee, and former President 'ruman also will speak briefly at the dinner. The following night surrender of the public interest," Humphrey declared in » it&te- ment. "Private power corporations are in effect invited to take over the country's remaining water power sites and essential transmission construction while at the same time new obstacles are put in the way of rural electric cooperatives and other nonprofit agencies." Gov. Q. Mennen Williams of Michigan, leading a forum on agricultural policies, is expected to tee off on the Eisenhower administration's farm program. Here, again, most of the Democrats are willing to Join in the criticisms. There also is expected to be discussion of the Republican policy of Increasing interest rates on government bonds, a move many democrats have described as raising the cost of loans for farmers and small business men. Forgery Suspect Jails Himself CTJSHINQ, Okla..m — Deputy Sherilf Lee Stiles was questioning a suspect about forged checks. The suspect pointed out he was a stranger in town and had earned the checks as a farm laborer. Stiles asked where the farm wa«. "Just outside of Gushing," was the answer. "Where?" the deputy persisted. "Three miles west on State Highway 33." Stiles promptly jailed the suspect. The location was the Deputy's farm home.
