Editorial- Congress Should Curb Union Monopoly Threat At the present time the antitrust laws do not cover labor unions. But if matters take their possible course in this field. Congress may consider seriously putting them under these statutes. Interest is stirred by reports that James Hoffa, vice president and avowed candidate for president of the powerful Teamsters union, would like to see a vast transportation combine involving his group and the east and west coast dock unions. The potentialities in such a setup for paralyzing the nation's economy are thorouglily plain. The Teamsters can halt all trucking at a signal. The International Longshoremen's Assn. can throttle all east and gulf coast shipping. On • the Pacific coast. Harry Bridges' International Lougshoremen's and Warehousemen's union can do the same. Indications are both the dock onions are attracted to ^the idea of the combine. There are difficulties. The various union personalities involved are not exactly In perfect- harmony now. and might never be. But the power to be realized from such an association is not something these men will lightly dismiss from mind. From the country's standpoint, the prospect of such a union transportation monopoly is fearsome enough in its basic features. But it is made far more uninviting by the character of the unions and the leadership involved.- 10 Times Herald, Carroll, Iowa Thursday, Aug. 8/ 1957 Suggested Pipeline to Make the Desert Flowe The Teamsters and Hoffa already are in serious straits on charges of racketeering and financial finagling. If the union elects Hoffa to succeed the discredited Dave Beck as president, the AFL-CIO is expected to expel it from the federation's ranks. No one needs to be reminded that the ILA is still gangster-ridden. It was bounced by the AFL-CIO for that reason and never has cleaned its house. It deserves no place In the roster of decent unions. As for Bridges' ILWU, it never has had the gumption to oust its | leader despite substantial charges j of communism against him. Its 'activities must remain continuous- jly suspect until it clears the slate 'and starts with an entirely fresh j leadership free of all Red tinge. Gangsters already have far too strong a hold on legitimate operations in the United States. The | thought of them dominating a large ! part of our transportation system | is not something any alert Ameri- jcan would care to contemplate.

A life of prayer Is a life whose litanies are ever fresh acts of self- devoting love.—F. W. Robertson President's Routine Calls For a 40-Hour Work Week By DOUGLAS LARSEN NBA Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON - (NEA)—President Eisenhower has established a comfortable pattern of work and relaxation this summer which will probably be his routine for the remainder of his term* This presidential way of life •consists of an eight-hour workday, five days a week, relaxed weekends at the Gettysburg farm and fairly frequent two-week vacations at various spots around the country- There are some grumblings that this doesn't give the President • time to get very deeply into the major -issues on which he must make decisions and that it forces him to short circuit his purely political responsibilities. But his doctors and the White House staff are satisfied with the President's production. And apparently Ike is, too. He rises at 7 a.m. He 's in the office before 8. There are four regular one-to- three%mr morning sessions per week which he attends. On Tuesday he meets with Republican legislative 1 e a d e r s. Wednesday morning is usually his press con ference time. Thursday it's the National Security Council, tHe gov ernment's top policy body. And Friday it's a Cabinet meeting At 12:30 he takes a two-hour break. This will include. a light lunch-, and variations of a swim in the White House pool, a nap or a session of painting. Very rarely does he use this noon recess for official business The afternoons are generally re served for visitors. In a whole workday the President will prob ably see six to 10 visitors He has set a goal of at least one round of golf during the week i Normally he leaves his office around 5. But when he gets the itch to hit the links the appoint Civil Rights Bill Record May Cost Demos Heavily in Next 2 Elections will leave for the Burning Tree Club between 3 and 4. Doctors have advised him to take some kind of a break in the ate afternoon. So when he doesn't go to the course, he'll frequently duck to the back yard of the White House and practice putting and chipping for a half hour. Right after the election when the Middle East crisis arose he got into the habit of doing some business telephoning after dinner He still does. In the evening he'll talk to members of Congress who have some special business with him. Or he will accept long-distance calls concerning various matters of business. He considers It late when he gets to bed at 10. And that's his workday. Gettysburg weekends always include golf and bridge. He'll go fishing, just visit with friends, read and mosey around the farm. The grandchildren will be at Gettysburg frequently for the weekends. Sunday, evening, or early Monday morning when Ike returns to his desk he's usually refreshed and in good spirits. Flexibility is a key element of the presidential schedule. Most visitors are warned that appointments might be canceled at the last minute. The White House staff is alerted to respond quickly to Ike's sudden urges to make a short trip to see a friend or play a round of golf on a new course. Ike's personal physician, Maj. Gen. Howard McC. Snyder, is really the presidential shadow. He gives the President a visual check morning, noon and night. Twice a week he makes a complete check of the President. Any time the President shows signs of extra fatigue or any other visible symptoms of something not normal, Snyder will make an instant, complete check, He main| tains a rigid supervision or the a skin reaction when given the skin tests with the offending agent. This is difficult to explain and, of course, has made identification-of the cause in many cases of obscure origin extremely difficult. An effort should always be made to find the cause. If this can be done, avoidance of the offending substance will usually cause the urticaria to disappear. Shunning it in the future usually prevents its reappearance. Medical treatment is often disappointing. There is nothing which can be put on the surface of the skin to make the hives disappear, although the itching often can be partly relieved. Epinephrine or adrenalin (useful in some allergies) has proved disappointing. The drugs known as antihistamines, of which there are several kinds on the market, however, often prove helpful. When properly used they may relieve, the symptoms for hours though' they do not cure'the underlying cause. The kind of urticaria which is chronic is particularly difficult to treat and is a trial to both patient and physician. U.S. Moves to Put Lagging Home Building Back on Feet By JAMES MARLOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON W> - Democrats have maneuvered the. Republicans into a position where they may decide it's necessary to kill the civil rights bill or let it die. Was this politically smart?. By their t a c t \ c s .Democrats avoided a party split. But Southern Negroes lose if the bill doesn't become law. And Northern Negroes, whose vote is becoming increasingly important to both parties,, will watch what nappens now. ' GOP Record Better On the voting to date on this bill in House and Senate—from a Negro viewpoint—the Republi#n record is better than the Demo cratic • showing although the Negroes know the Republicans also had political motivations. Under President Eisenhower's urging, the House in 1056 passed a bill identical with the one offered this year. But it died in the Senate in 1956, bottled up in the Judiciary Committee. That group is headed by Sen. Eastland, Mississippi Democrat and one of the most strenuous foes of civil rights legislation. The House passed the same bill again this year. The vote: 168 Republicans and 118 Democrats for it; only 19 Republicans, but 107 Democrats, against. Once more an identical bill was bottled up in Eastland's committee, with no prospect of its ever getting out on the Senate floor for a vote. Usually such a bill doesn't get to the floor until sent there with committee approval. The Senate Republicans stunned the Democrats by proposing to bypass Eastland's committee and bring the House-approved bill di­ rectly to the Senate floor. The pro-1 Again most of the other Demo- posal won. The vote: 34 Republi-1 crats agreed to what the South* cans and 11 Democrats for it; erners wanted — and then.some. only 5 Republicans, but '34 Democrats, against. The Democrats had an immediate problem. Thp Southern Democrats as usual wanted no civil rights legislation, talked of a filibuster to kill the. bill. If the Northern Democrats sided with the Republicans it might split the party. By making concessions to the Southerners—in return for some— they could not only avoid a party split but—if the bill ever did pass —claim equal credit with the Republicans. Primitive Powers First, the Southerners demanded Part 3 of the four-part bill be thrown out entirely. They said the bill, in cunning language that concealed the broad scope of it, would give the government vast new and punitive powers against the South. The Southerners won. Part 3 was thrown out The vote: 18 Republicans and 34 Democrats for killing it; 25 Republicans and 13 Democrats against. Then the Southerners turned to Part 4. This involved voting rights only. When those rights were vior lated it would let the attorney general get a court order to stop the violations. By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK UrV-Higher interest rates are being tried today as a panacea in still another phase of the economy—this time the lagging home building industry. First the money managers let interest rates rise in general in an effort to put a curb on the business expansion boom which they blamed- in part for the inflation that has sent the cost of living higher month after month. Then the U. S. Treasury raised the interest rates paid on U. S. Saving Bonds in an effort to plug the drain from the treasury by investors cashing in their bonds. They proposed amending Part 4 to require a jury trial not jiinly for criminal contempt in voting . cases but for every criminal Contempt under any law. The vote on this: 12 Republicans and 39 Democrats for the amendment; 33 Republican and 9 Democrats against. Judicial Threat This was lawmaking with a blunderbuss, since those who voted for the amendment couldn't possibly know thp full effect of what they did Every federal court and every government regulatory agency which depended on federal court orders to back up its rulings would be affected. At least 40 separate laws would be affected. No one yet knows the full number. This went so far beyond, a civil rights bill to protect Negroes' voting rights—and so deeply involved the government's operations—that Eisenhower reportedly made up his mind to kill the bill with a veto unless it if changed by a Senate-House conference. That would require that the Senate — meaning Senate Democrats—back down and agree to a much less sweeping bill. If North- Anyone disobeying could be j em Democrats back down too tried by the judge, without a jury and jailed for civil contempt until he complied. If it were too late to comply he could be jailed under a flat sentence as punishment for criminal contempt. The Southerners demanded a jury trial for criminal contempt in voting o^ases, although they'd let a judge alone try and jail a man for civil contempt. much to meet Eisenhower's demands. Southern Democrats no doubt will filibuster. Again Democrats would face a party split. Negroes will be able to decide for themselves—if once more they get no civil rights legislation — who's responsible. Their vote in the 1958 and 1960 elections in the North could, if voted solidly, be quite a factor. lars'worth of Series E and H. But in the same month others were cashing in a total of 529 million dollars worth. For one thing the treasury in the meantime brought out a more attractive offer—one year certificates and four year notes paying investors 4 per cent. This operation, refunding ?4 billion dollars of maturing securities, was termed a success. But even so, holders of some one billion dollars worth of the maturing securities preferred cash.

As a rule, urticaria is characterized by the appearance on the skin of reddish, swollen spots measuring half an* inch or more across which itch intensely. They may appear almost anywhere on the skin and may last for only a few hours and then disappear without apparent reason or may last for days or even weeks. Certainly there is no single "cause" since urticaria can develop from a great many different things. Therefore, in a way, it is not proper to call it a disease. Apparently there is some special quality about the person who has urticaria which makes It possible. For example, most of us can eat strawberries without developing hives, but a few break out with hives if they eat even a single berry. Urticaria can follow swallowing almost any food or drug. It often appears as the result of infection, heat, furs or insect bites. Curiously enough, most patients, with hives do not show Remember Way Bock When of the cost of living may be halted soon. The 3V-i per cent which the treasury has paid on U. S. Savings Bonds bought since February and to be held for almost nine years also hasn't seemed to have had much effect there, either. In July the public bought 400 million dol- mortgage's life higher than before. In other words, it will be easier to take on a new home but costlier to reach the day when you burn the mortgage. The lag in home building has been largely in the lower priced field.: This is the field that FHA hopes to revive. Q — On what date was the Declaration of Independence adopted?

Woman Lists Reasons Why She Likes Mother-in-Law Does your daughter-in-law think you're wonderful? You might try checking yourself against a list of reasons one young wife gives for feeling lucky to have the right kind of mother-inlaw: "She never tells any of her married children what they ought to do. When asked for advice she gives it, but she makes it clear that what she would do under the circumstances isn't necessarily the one and only right answer. So you are free to take the advice or not — with no hard feelings if you don't. "She doesn't criticize any of her children or her in-laws behind their backs. So her sons-in-law and daughters-in-law as well as her children have the comfortable feeling that she isn't going to discuss their shortcomings with anyone when she leaves their homes, "She is a friend. If you need her, she comes. If she needs your (All Rights reserved, help, she accepts it with thanks. So her in-laws never feel she is imposing on them or they are imposing on her. Seems Young "She has a smile for everyone and never seems to get upset over little things. She doesn't wear a long face or enjoy talking about depressing subjects. That makes her seem young, even to her grandchildren. "She is very casual about the gifts she gives and never checks up to see why you aren't using them. Some mothers-in-law get hurt if a lamp .intended for a living room is Used in a bedroom, or if a gift is eventually replaced by something else. "She doesn't resent what her sons are able to give their wives or act as though' it's a crime that her .daughters have to work hard." , If you meet those standards, chances are your own daughter- in-law feels, lust as lucky.
