WASHINGTON, (NBA). -- B i g political riddle of 1948 is how much weight labor unions will be able to throw in the election. Beyond question, labor took an awful pasting in 1940. Instead of being a potent political force, labor leaders wcrc shown up as a bunch of rank political amateurs. But now the Taft-Hartley Act has stirred up thc animals. There are a half-dozen political movements within organized labor today. Whether they are just noise, or whether they have some political substance, is what the wiseacres are trying to dope out. Oldest of the lot is Labor's Non-1 Partisan League, whose front man i is John T. Jones. In reality the, head man is John L. Lewis oil United Mine Workers. Lewis started the League when he was head man of CIO. It had some influence in 1936. But, when Lewis pulled away from Roosevelt, and thc CIO pulled away from Lewis, the League began to decline. When Lewis switched to Willkie in 1940, he failed to deliver the votes of his miners. Today the League is pretty m u c h ' of a political dead duck. j Next in line is the CIO's Politi-; cal Action Committee, now headed by Jack Kroll. There is am-, pie evidence that CIO-PAC leani-' ed a lesson from the beating it got in 1946. Since that time, licking it wounds, CIO-PAC has been working quietly but hard, out in the country, to build a real po-j litical- organization from the faot-j torn up. it has the making oil a much more potent political lorce j in 1948. * * * A third political-labor movement is backed by the big, poweriul,) conservative, independent Interna-' tional Association of Machinists.; Its new Machinists Non-Partisan j Political League will, during January', hold a membership campaign ana a drive to collect a million ( dollars. " i Primarily, the Machinists say they are interested in replacing! the present Tail-Hartley Congress i whicn, by its every action last, vear--on taxes, price and rent con-1 irols, as well as labor legislation) showed favoritism and ooedience · tc employers. Eighteen of the railroad brotherhoods have formed the Railway Labor's Political League, fourth ot ilm movements now active. Its chairman is A. E. Lyon. Its oo- jectives arc to inform their million and a quarter members on the voting records and qualifications of candidates, from the labor point of view. Finally, there is the new AFL Labor's Educational and Political League, which is asking its eignt million members lor "voluntary contributions ot a dollar to finance operations. Haif of the money will be spent nationally, naii locally. Traditionally, ever since the days j of Sam Uompers, AFL has stay-' ed out of politics. This year the Federation's 105 international unions are in. Their mam aim is to defeat every congressman who voted for the Taft-Hartley Act in 1947. ^ * * Thus far, there is no central direction and very little .co-operation of these five political movements. ·Dclinitely, they are not seeking to form a laoor party. There B no truck with U* American Labor Party of New \oik,; which is thc sixth of these movements. _ Potentially, there arc some ^o mimon members of labor unions That is enotfgh balance of power to, th5w any national election- r Glbbons announcing thc en- daughter.
