But the great beating of drums for hi:i) was mighty temptmu. iike d a n c l i n c a string of flasliir.E jewels before : virtuous woman. Senator Vandenberj* sent his son. A r t h u r J r . to Philadelphia to be his campaign m.inacer But always, the dignified, white-haired figure of the Senator was to be kept aloof from the petty business of partisan politics Governor Kim Sigler of Michigan was a pawn in this game. He was persuaded to icsue a blustering statement t h a t Vandenbcrg would accept the nomination. The Senator could always disavow the announcement later. But A r t h u r Jr. whispered to both politicos and reporters that the SiKier statement ·VV.T; the real McCoy.

July 1 3 -- N " E A -- \ If any dcrubts remain about times · having changed, a iook at the ro!e of the labor unions in major party political cc-nvontions here in Philadelphia should rernove the uncertainty. At the Chicago conventions in 194-4. union lesders threw their . v, eight around considerably. Even · the Republican convention welcomed such labor leaders as cared to show up and represent the toilers v.-ho were producing the weapons- to win the war. So the GOP platform of 1S44 condemned arbitrary wage free^.ng by government agencies, the emasculat'on of the Department of Labor and the perversion cf the Wagner act by the w.cked New Dealers. At the Democratic convention four years ago Ph ; ' Murray and the !ate Sidney Hillir.an of CIO- Pohtical Action Committee held court in the penthouse of a loop hotel They took their first beatings in 12 years at that convention. Their political fortunes have been going down ever since Movement Lost Its Oomph j 2 V.'j'h the death of Hi'.lrnan. the CIO-PAC mantle of leadership fell , on Jack Kro!!. but the movement . " just hasn't had any oomph. The ! Citizens' PAC changed its name to PCA -- Progressive Citizens of America ar.d branched off :o back , Wallace, taking the left-wing un' ions aiong I Passage of the Tsfl-Hart'ey act completed the debacle Phi! Murray did a whale of a job in fighting the Taft-Hartiey ban on po- 1 liticai activity by union news. papers, winning a Supreme Court decision that thi^ section of She "· Isw is unconstitutional. The more conservative CIO leadership und°r Murray has abo done wonders in subjugating the Coin-.iumsJs with" in their ranks. The record of the '-'st 10 .-.tcntns under '.he Taft-Hartiey !aw seems , 1 to indicate that labor unions are ' having no trouble in getting wage increases, in spite of injunctions and other curbs. Nevertheless, re- i ' peal of the T-H law and defeat of , all Republican or Democratic con- ,' i gressmen who voted for it are still , ! the primary political goals of t h e ' ; labor unions. ! Half-a-dozen new outfits have been founded to carry on this Sght. i They can still do a job in getting j out the vote for the November elec- . tion. But up to the lime of th^ ; conventions they just had not made : any impression on the electorate. , Leaders Are Brushed Off : i At the Philadelphia conventions. ! both CIO and AFL spokesmen have appeared before the resolutions; committees, d r a f t i n g the party , platforms. Usually the glad hand : is extended to the labor "boys." j but this year they have been given j a pretty hasty brushoff. Van A. Bittner of the steelwork- · ers. speaking for the CIO. recalled to the Republicans their platform , promises of 1944 and charged the GOP with breach of its labor ' planks. William Green spoke for the AFL at length tfnd as usual before · both conventions. He asked for a long bill of particulars including . repeal of the T-H law. curbs on inflation, aid to education, hous- 1 ing. more social security. Green ' 1 got such rough treatment from the Republicans that when he return\ ed to Washington, his first act was ' to beat it over to the White House to see Truman and say he would . never supoort Dewey. James G. Carey of CIO talked . to the Democratic convention. H e ; asked for Truman's Civil Rights program and Roosevelt's old Bill of Economic Rights. All these were pretty furtle pe'"- formsnces. The cocky Reoublicans feel that rhev don't need the labor vote. The Democrats need it. but ' are so divided between conserva- , : ; .ve and liberal elements that they can't seem to cet it Union labor is so indifferent, to the Democratic cause this year that its "leaders -.von't. even accept invitations to · speak at its convention. Which is z far cry indeed from 1944. Side Glances \W) ] *·· { . .
