UP,— Texas members o£ Congress agreeing with numerous constituents who have written letters assailing strikes in war production factories, are anxious that stoppages be banned and are working to achieve that end. Telegrams and letters pour daily into the offices of practically all the delegation from individuals and organizations over the Lone Siar state, some expressing the writers' resentment that strikes continue, some urging-that the 40. hour work \veck law be suspended for the duration of the war. Bached By Texans Seldom a day goes by but what one or more Texans arise on either the House or Senate floor to condemn strikes and urge their colleagues to enact legislation dealing with the problem. The Texas House members were almost unanimously behind Rep. Smith <DrVa) in "his recent unsuccessful fjght to have the 40- hour work suspended. There was no record vote on the proposal. On last Dec. 3—four days before the attack on Pearl Harbor, the House passed an antistrike bill <HR 4139) drafted by the Virginia congressman. Rep. Lanham of Fort Worth, who has vigorously backed legislation of various kinds to stop defense strikes, had this in mind when he took the floor this week to say: Much Undue Criticism 'I think the House of Representatives has been receiving a jreat deal of criticism that it does not deserve, because more than three months ago it passed a very "omprehensive bill dealing with •arious features of this situation, and no action as yet has been taken in another body on that bill. Provisions of the Smith antistrike bill include: Requires an initial 30 days notice of intention of defense plant employes to strike, or de- :ense contractors to conduct a .ockout. Provides for a secret ballot of employes in a plant, under government supervision', before a strike can be called. Freezes closed and open shop conditions as existed on date of enactment of law.

Hatton W. Sumners of Dallas, as chairman of the judiciary committee,' had charge of legislative debate, in the House during action of the war powers bilL It was in consideration of that measure that the House after heated discussion turned down the Smith amendment which would have suspended the 40 T hour week. Sumners gave backers of the Smith proposal full opportunity to argue the merits of the measure, and among them were several Texans. Action Urged Rep. Gossett of Wichita Falls took the floor to say: "The boys in the fox holes of Balaan peninsula and in the caves of Corregidor have no eight hour per day. limitations on shedding blood for this country, nor do they get time and one-half for overtime and double time for Sundays and holidays."
