M01LE9 "Cart labdf Clictn It'i Own Msuii?'* Sylvester Petre, In hi* address before the Congress of American industry, published as an essay on "ran Labor Clean its Own House?", relates how the National Labor Relation* Board does not declare unfair labor practice for labor unions to intimidate meftv hers into joining. On tha other hand, the board found it easy to declare the employer unfair as prescribing every conceivable type of employer pres* sure as unfair, but not the unions unfair for doing the same thing. Skin-Deep Investigation Under the above heading Df. Pelro completes the article in this Manner: "And so, while the Senate committee haj been rehashing in the case of employer 'corruption' only conduct which the board has since the very beginning prosecuted, it hag curiously refrained, thus far a» least, from inquiring into the methods; by which unions are daily coercing th 1 ? free choice of em- ploves. To put the matter another way it has been preoccupied with tho surface manifestations of trade union corruption — the cheap thievery, double dealing, and the embezzling. It has not been concerned at all with even the deep- ei manifestations of conniption — the violence and the compulsion which underlie so much of modern American trade - unionism. More important even than that, the committee has not revealed any understanding at all of the fundamental causes of both the deeper and the more superficial forms of corruption. "The causer lie essentially, I repeat, in the errors, failures, and derelictions of government in the labor relations field. Unions have been given special privileges at the expense of the basic rights of employes and employers. While employers have been forced to take a strictly hands-off attitude, and while the contract rights of workers have been vitiated, unions have been given the formal de jure power to control employment and employment conditions, and iney have been given the informal de facto power to use violence and economic coercion as means ot compelling both membership and acquiescence in union policies Robert Submarine Markers Due Some Scrutiny WASHINGTON — Those myste- ^coastal areas. , .The time Is rap- 'idly nearing when the Soviet can tach statement — bad debts Ing from sales or services, depre elation — explain in Schedule C-.l — Repairs • - Explain in Schedule C-2, Depletion of mines, oil and gaa wells, timber, ets. — attach schedule — amortization."

No human agency can be trusted, with the kinds of power which the errors in government have given trade-union leadership.

Those who do not excel will either have to learn or make way for men with richer natural endowments, "Workers who have become accustomed to being pushed around, who, owing to the failures of governments to do their basic job. are used to the rigorous controls o! compulsory union methods, are ir a position to do very little &bou. cleaning up things.

The headline . making Senate Preparedness Investigating C o m- mittee has decided to look into this secrecy-shrouded matter in a new series of hearings starting later this month. These extraordinary large steel radioactive underwater devices are strongly suspected of being Russian. Navy authorities are convinced they are "position markers" for use by Soviet submarines foe launching nuclear-armed missiles against U.S. and Canadian costal cities and other targets. The Senate Committee's inquiry Into these sinister Red median; isms will be part of an overall sur vey of Navy strength, weapons anc capabilities. Particular emphasis will be placed on undersea, war fare, and the development of ef' fective defenses against Russian missiles and admitted numerical superiority in submarines. This explosive probe will be di reeled by Sena.te Democratic Leader Lyndon Johnson, Tex., assisted by Senator Stuart Syming ton (D., Mo.), long a militant crit ic of Administration defense policies. As disclosed by this column sev eral weeks ago. the Canadian Navy first discovered the myste rlous underwater "position mark ers'' off the Atlantic coast. Subsequently the U.S. Navy found them off both the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, in some instances imbedded on the ocean floors up to depths of 1,000 ft. A few were located within both the U.S. and Canadian three-mile limit. While only about a score of these Soviet devices have so far been uncovered, U.S. and Canadian officials estimate "hundreds' 1 have been planted off the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean. The latter two are vital shipping lanes, especially for oil. Since this column's disclosure of this grim discovery, Navy press officials have given a variety of replies to inquires regarding it. First, newsman were told nothing was known about the "position markers." That was followed with No comment" and "We can't discuss the matter." Latest answer to reporters is, "It's classified, and nothing can be said about it." However, Navy sources have privately admitted the existence of :hese submarine "position markers." That is known to members of he Senate Preparedness Investi- atlng Committee. 4 They also know other facts about these sinister Soviet done- es. The nature of this information cannot be indicated here as it has been classified highly secret by "•ertain Navy authorities. To what extent Senator Johnson's Committee can air the mater Is uncertain. But, in some orm, the Committee will care ful- y look into it. SCATHING REPORT — An tm- jortant basis of the Senate Committee's impending naval prohe is a highly critical report compiled by a group of I and businessmen.

"Our existing defensive system could not stop such a missile attack. No weapons system now in existence, or ven on a experimental basis, offers an adequate defense against it. It is extremely doubtful whether the present scale and scope of research and development in undersea warfare will give us an effective defense against nuclear submarines in time to meet such a threat. "Although defense against POLARIS-type submarines mty soon equal the problem of air defense in urgency, tho funding of re-searcli and development in support of operational requirements for antisubmarine warfare has been grossly inadequate when compared with acclaim as from the Communists Their national paper, The Worker, gleefully headlined "38 Million Protestants Tell Ike; Recognize China." The article beneath that headline refers to the address of Secretary of State John Foster Dulles at Cleveland and exulta in the unanimous repudiation of his policy by the Conference. The Worker is equally happy because the Conference unanimously urged the admission of Communist China to the United Nations. In our opinion, the greater part of the 38 million Protestants do not approve the action of the Cleveland Conference and will be very unhappy about the propagan da the Communists are making concerning it.
