MORTALLYSHOT Bv HERBERT PLUMMER ASHINGTON Oct 22 Iff Leaders of ar ganized labor still are a bit be wildered at the A F of Ls de cision at its San Francisco c o n vention to organ ize mass produc t i o n industries along industrial rother than craft lines Vertical vs horizontal un ions for years have been one of labors most fa i mous controversies The decision in favor of vertical organization at San Francisco may result in sweep ing changes in the future of labor in this country A vertical union is one in which an effort is made to sign up every employe in an inddustry The most outstanding example is the United i Mine Workers of America Horizontal unions comprise only workers in a particular i bricklayers for example This type of union is typical of those affiliat ed with the American Federation of Labor previous Stand Reversed The significance of the A F of Lg decision lies in the fact that af ter years of controversy the coun trys largest labor organizations fin ally have swung away with a pro viso from trade unionism to or ganization by industiy The proviso is that the A F of L for the time being has the au thority to choose officers of such newly formed unions Only last year the A F of L con vention smothered a similar pro posal by a vote of more than two to one The reason advanced by labor leaders was that they feared such an open controversy would hamper thVfeder ationS ijimpiign members Oddly enough labor leaders cred it the reverse for the success of the proposal this year Dissatisfaction among workers in the automobile in dustry along with the open threat of large withdrawals of these labor ers from the federation is said by those on the inside to have been the reason why approval was given Pro and Con of I Supporters of the industrial union L Lewis president of the United Mine Workers of America is that such unions give the workers much more power Lewis proudly points to his own union as the one generally conceded to nave gotten the biggest break thus far under the new deal It also is argued that unskilled la bor fares better with industrial unions than withthe present trade groups Trade unions must look out for themselves Socalled

Bailey of the Dis trict of Columbia supreme court to day upheld the constitutionality of the sugar control act which had been attacked by Hawaiian grow ers v The court said it was by no means clear that in view of the rise in the price of sugar due largely to the effects of the admin istration of the sugar act that the plaintiffs have suffered any finan cial loss in spite of the restraints upon their exportation of sugar In fact I think the evidence shows the plaintiffs will gain rather than lose by enforcement of the act Upon the whole case therefore I think the provisions of the sugar act and the actions of the secretary of agriculture attacked by the plaintiffs do not operate to deprive them of property without due pro cess of law MIAMI Fla Oct 22 for early but not immediate pay ment
