Carroll Daily Times Herald Vol. 90—No. 216 Carroll, Iowa, Monday, September 14, 1959—Eight Pages Delivered by Carrier Boy Each Evening for 35 Cent* Per Week 7c 81ngl« Copy Major Triumph for President- Ike Signs Labor Control Bill WASHINGTON (AP)—President Eisenhower today signed into law the bill regulating internal affairs of labor unions and limiting their boycott and picketing activities. The measure, a landmark of the 1959 session of Congress, represents one of Eisenhower's most important legislative triumphs. It contains Taft-Hartley law amendments he insisted were essential to any effective bill The law also puts new restric-l tions on organizational picketing by unions and on secondary boycotts. A secondary boycott is one directed at an employer with whom the union has no direct quarrel. The AFL-CIO contends these Taft-Hartley changes will weaken labor's legitimate economic powers. Employers argue that the boycott and picketing weapons The new law is designed to curb were abused by the Teamsters racketeering and other abuses in and some other unions. The mcas- some unions spotlighted in con- i ure was strongly opposed by or- gressional investigations. I ganized labor in its final form. The act contains the most far- rewriting of the nation's labor- management relations law since the Taft-Hartley law was passed in 1947. Eisenhower signed the bill without any special ceremony. But two hours after the signing, Reps. Robert P. Griffin (R-Mich) and Phil M. Landrum (D-Ga) authors oi the late-session bill, called on Eisenhower at the White House to express their thanks. "The President's wonderful support certainly was the thing which made the difference in obtaining fair and constructive reform legislation," Griffin told newsmen afterwards. They agreed that Sen. John L. McClellan (D-Ark), head of the Union-Rackets Investigating subcommittee, "had a lot to do with it, too." Major Changes The original bill was introdviced by Sen. John F. Kennedy (D- Mass). Major changes, some strongly opposed by labor union chiefs, were put in by McClellan in the Senate and by Griffin and Landrum in the House.

"We have followed with interest the travel of the Soviet lunar probe to its impact with the moon," Dryden said.

Sec Dust Clouds Radio Budapest said Hungarian scientists spotted a dust cloud raised on the moon when the rocket landed at 12:02 a.m. A black ring was visible for more than an hour after the probe's radio signals stopped on impact, it said, and the scientists expressed belief this outlined a new crater cut into the sand and rock of the moon's surface. From Britain's major space tracking station, Prof. A. J. Lovell, director of the huge radio telescope at Jodrell Bank, said: "At the moment of impact the telescope was accurately positioned in the direction of the moon and there is no reason to doubt that the Lunik capsule made impact on the lunar surface." A leading Soviet astronomer said today the next step in the preparation for landing people on the moon is to set up a robot observatory there.

Sets up a bill of rights for all union members guaranteeing such things as equal privileges in con* duct of meetings and elections, enforceable by civil suits in federal courts. 2. Requires detailed public financial reporting by all unions, including all receipts, expenditures, salaries, and conflict of interest transactions by officers or employes. Reports must be filed with the U.S. Labor Department. Criminal penalties are provided for false reporting. 3 t Requirers employers and labor relations consultants to report publicly their expenditures to influence employes. 4. Limits trusteeships over a local by an international union to 18 months. Requires detailed public reports on reasons for trusteeships, plus a provision that a trusteeship must be for legitimate union objectives. 5. Provides for secret ballot elections in unions with a limit on terms of union officers. Contains provisions to insure all members can nominate candidates, vote in the election, and be sure of an honest count. 6. Bans service as a union officer by any person convicted of a major crime for five years after he leaves prison, or by any Communist or former Communist for five years after he quits the party. 7. Ends a void in federal-state jurisdiction known as no man's land by permitting each state to handle under its own laws any labor dispute the National Labor Relations Board declines to handle. But the NLRB could not refuse to act on any class of cases it was handling Aug. 1, 1959. 8. Prohibits all types of secondary boycotts by closing Taft- Hartley loopholes. 9. Bans hot cargo contracts under which an employer agrees with a union not to do business with another employer. 10. Prohibits picketing in order to organize workers in these situations: where another union has been lawfully recognized; where the union seeking to picket has lost a collective bargaining election in the last 12 months; where picketing has been conducted for a reasonable period not exceeding 30 days; and where no election has been asked. On secondary boycotts, the law makes it clear that labor can continue to refuse to work on struck goods. It also protects garment industry agreements under which a prime contractor agrees not to Labor Bill ......
