Editorial- Teamster, Power Figures Big in Top Organization ' Having taken a stand" firmly on principle, the .AFL-CIO seems strongly committed to casting out ti»e Teamsters union soon unless an unlooked-for house cleaning of top union leadership occurs. But the ouster, if it comes, will bring little joy to the merged federation. The Teamsters have 1,400,000 members, or nearly one-tenth of total AFL-CIO membership. No organization can look with pleasure upon a move that will lop off that much of its strength. Actually, in realistic terms, the damage will be much greater than mere numbers suggest. A word to truck drivers in the Teamsters' fold can immobilize big segments of the economy and, indeed, whole cities. All they have to do is shut off deliveries of essential supplies. No other union is thus posed at the nation's jugular. Its key position has often .been of critical aid, therefore, to other unions involved in disputes with management. Many times a strike's success has hinged on whether or not Teamsters would cross a picket line. To expect this kind of help from a union tossed out of the federation, possibly to the accompaniment of harsh words, would be asking a lot. Some Teamster locals might choose to lend a hand as they saw fit, but the chances are that it would be in defiance of the top authority. An ouster certainly is not going to add to the Teamsters' public DIMI Herald, Carroll, Iowa Saturday, Sept. 14, 1957 stature. Yet they appear unlikely to suffer deep economic wounds in consequence. The union's international treasury, for all the dipping in by top brass, stands around 40 million dollars, and that sum may be matched by the treasuries of locals and regional joint councils. After two notable previous ousters—the United Electrical Workers and the International Long' shoremen's Association—the then separate CIO and AFL organized rival unions to combat the penalized organizations. In the case of the ILA, the effort was pretty much a failure. Against the powerful Teamsters such a move would probably be even more dubious, and there is no indication it will be tried. In fact, the Teamsters might for their own part attempt to cluster other unions about them in a rival federation. Obviously, if the AFL-CIO does throw the Teamsters out, it may be a real question 'who is hurt the most—the spanker or the spanked. Thoughts Have the gates of death been opened unto thee? or hast thou seen the doors of the shadow of death?—Job 38:17. The character wherewith we sink into the grave at death is the very character wherewith we shall reappear at the resurrection. —Thomas Chalmers. No Matter How Hot It Gets Civil Rights Struggle Now Moves on to Courthouses By PETER EDSON NEA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON — (NEA) — The battle'over civil rights legislation hasn't ended. It's just beginning. It will last a year or more: Putting the new Civil Rights Act of 1957 into effect in the South can begin almost any time a qualified Negro resident wants to go to his county courthouse and register to vote. But it will be early next year- some time after the 1958 spring primaries — before many legal test cases can be taken to court. Sen. Richard B. Russell (D-Ga.) says the new law is unconstitutional. This indicates there may be some long trials and appeals, carrying the issue to the Supreme Court. Before that happens there are a number of administrative preliminaries necessary to put the new law in operation. The President's first act will be to appoint six members and a staff director to the new Commission on Civil Rights and to name a new assistant attorney general for civil rights in the Department of Justice. The new assistant will supervise preparation and prosecution of civil rights cases by U.S. district attorneys. * The commission will function for ,two years. It will investigate alleged denials of voting rights, appraise federal,laws and policies on civil rights. Then it will file a report to the President and Congress and go out of business. .. Both the commissioners' and the new assistant attorney general's appointments < must be confirmed by the Senate. There will probably be a hassle over^them. By making'recess appointments after Congress adjourns, however, the new officials, could serve-'until the end of the next Congress in 1958, or until the Senate rejected any of their appointments In most southern states, regis- tration to vote ,is permanent or will soon become so for citizens who have voted during the last two years. New civil rights cases may arise, however, when new voters come into register. In general, registration offices are open at least one day a week up to 30 days before an election in Louisiana or six months before in Georgia. Arkansas and Texas have no registration laws but anyone who presents a current poll tax receipt is entitled to vote. Test cases in these two states could come through, an election official's denying such a voter the right to vote. In other southern states, test cases might arise if an official denied a citizen the right to register. Such cases would call for a federal court test. A civil injunction would be requested to require the official to register the applicant. For a criminal conviction of any person willfully disobeying or obstructing any court />rder on civil rights,* the penalty may be up to $1,000 fine and six months In prison. For an organization disobeying a court civil rights order — like one of the white citizens' councils —penalties could be heavier. ' Such a criminal.proceeding can be with, or without' jury, at the judge's discretion. If without jury, the maximum penalty is $300 fine and 45 days in prison. If the sentence is heavier, the accused official may demand a new trial before a jury. 1^ is now considered probable that most of these court cases will grow out of denials of voting lights in the 1958 primaries and November elections. * The tests will therefore set the pattern for the 1960 presidential elections when the voting turnout wjll be heavier. * * DR.

They're not death throes. But the party is sick, torn by factions, and losing members. It claimed 80,000 members in 1945. It claims only 10,000 now. and says it lost 7,000 in the past year. Some of its most dedicated members quit, like Howart Fast, novelist, and Joseph Clark, foreign editor of the Daily Worker. On one side is the William Z. Foster faction. Foster is the party's chairman emeritus and an- old-line Stalinist. He became party chairman after the war and under his leadership it reached the edge of disaster. : Chief spokesman for the other side is John Gates, editor in chief of the Daily Worker, the party's newspaper, and critic of the party's failure to find a way to keep its members and increase its effectiveness. The membership began dwindling under Foster, and' the party found itself isolated from all other groups in American life. And then for. a party which pretended to have the solutions for American living, it made a pitiful and abject admission. A year ago it admitted it had misunderstood American econom­ ics by predicting a depression; it misunderstood the American Negro, American politics, American labor and, in' short, what Americans thought and wanted. And after Nikita Khrushchev, Russian Communist party boss, denounced Stalin the American party made a complete abdication from any pretension to intellectual leadership. It admitted that—up to the time of Khrushchev's revelations about Stalin's murders—it had accepted as "ipso facto valid" whatever the Russian Communist party did. Khrushchev's speech rocked the American Communist party. But he opened the door to a split when he suggested non-Russian Communist parties could show some independence of Moscow and even be critical. American Communists — but only some and in a limited way —became critical of Russia. But they became critical of one another too. This fitted in with what Khrushchev had in mind. Since Communist parties—here and in Western Europe—were losing ground, a new front, with a pretension of independence from Moscow, might enable them to put on the appearance of independent, native Communist parties. That in turn might enable them to infiltrate other groups and get their members elected to Partla* ments. \ : *« \ But when the self-criticism began in this country it was the Gates group against the kind -of leadership the Posterities h%A provided and the Fosterites stand* ing pat for the old-line kind of operation. At its convention this year — which was in line with Khrushchev's ideas—the party made a show of independence from Moscow. This was just rearranging the furniture. FBI Chief J. Edgar Hoover told Congress shortly after this convention that American Communists "in fact have not broken with the Soviet Union" despite an "alleged declaration of independence." Besides the nausea and disillusionment which drove some Communists out of the American party after Khrushchev's speech, there were other factors which caused a loss of membership. One was the brutal Russian suppression of the Hungarians. An earlier one was this government's prosecution — and conviction — of more than 100 top and second- rung party leaders. As of now the party is like a town council without mayor. It has a national executive committee running the show but no one man can claim to be the full boss. C. M. Beans of Auburn Observe 20th Anniversary Visit Relatives At Norfolk, Neb. (Time* Herald News Serriee) MANNING — Mrs. Katie Sander and Mrs. Henrietta Petersen spent the weekend with relatives at Norfolk, Neb. to enlarge the bust? Some say bust j available creams will do so and some say; and how exercises. What is your opinion?— P. S. A—Endocrine preparations such as are commonly contained in "bust creams" may produce some enlargement of the breasts in women who are not themselves manufacturing enough female hormones. However, the breasts usually shrink to their previous size when administration is discontinued. My opinion is that exercises are generally useless and may be harmful. I do not think attempts at bust enlargement should! be undertaken unless the method is approved by a physician. information on where to retire—based largely experiences of retired em- SO THEY SAY I've maintained all along I'd never become a professional politician. — Gov.

I'm not going to make a movie theater out of my house (by having neighbors watch her pay-as- you-see television). — Ronald Darrah of Bartlesville. Okla., where nation's first pay TV started. The Philippines necessarily has to move in concert with the U. S. on the question of disarmament for the reason our security is intimately bound with that of the U.S. — Philippines Foreign Secretary Felixberto Serrano. The Mongols are the peoples of central Asia. They make up a nation rather than a race. Remember Way Back When on the ployesi Male employes were encouraged to bring their wives to the retirement counseling sessions, Burch says. But very few, indeed, were willing to bring their wives. There was an attitude that the whole thing was embarrassing, that it diminished a man's position. There was a feeling that this was his job, his company, his business contact. His wife did not belong there. "A wife ought to be the backbone of her husband's retirement," Burch believes. "His job, his salary, often his friends, are gone. He needs to prepare for a closer, at- home way of living than he has known before." Wives not only help a man adjust to retirement, they frequently take matters into their own hands. Wives write to retirement special- ing doctor's bills. Do you think we can make it, or should 1 get a part- time job?" — Cincinnati, Ohio, reader. A—If you begin to cash in your bonds to help meet expenses, you might gamble that you would live 20 more years, until age 90, and spend $1,000 a year and be reasonably safe. Even so, you would worry. Many retired people have found safe investments, through the guidance of a bank or investment counselor, which pay 4 or 5 per cent interest. If you invested your $20,000 at 5 pe' 1 cent, your, dividends would be $1,000 a year —enough to help you pay your bills without using up your principal. Stay in your house, use the $6,000 bank account for emergencies, and start right now looking for that part-time job. Don't wait until you are retired. You have more to "sell" in yourself as an employed man than you will have as an idle man. (Tlmee Herald News Service) AUBURN — Mr. and Mrs. C. M.

Be she a rising young career girl—or even a princess—a girl's best friend so far as marriage is concerned is her early 20's. Before that, she isn't likely to have enough judgment to know whether a young man will make a good husband. After that, she all to often discovers that the best husband material is already firmly hooked. It doesn't much matter why a girl lets her best marrying years slip away from her. The end of the story is usually the same.
