Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - December 3, 1945, Mason City, Iowa NORTH JOWAS DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME OF AHO ARCHIVES U One Mans Opinion A Radio Commentary by W EARL HALL Managing Editor BROADCAST SCHEDULE KGZO Hastm City Sunday p m WSL1 Iowa City Wednesday p WOI Atnes Frldny B m WTAD Quincy la Friday p KBGI StoDxcity Salurdy o Strikes and Wars Are in Same Class main contention in thi commentary is going to b that in this year 1945 A D there is no more justification fo strike weapon in a nation industrial economy than there i for the war weapon on the inter national scene Both are relics o the stone age past both shoul be banished from the earth In what I shall say I shall no be taking sides or attempting tc pass on the merits or demerit Involved in any current strikes large or small My It is be of the work stoppage device taken by the contending parties to enforce their points of view The fundamental objection t the strike weapon of course i that it is a blunderbuss Its a gun that shoots in all directions Its charge is spread in such a manner as to hurt the public goo even more than it hurts either party to an industrial controversy I speak as a mere member of tha public that gets hurt TN the development of my casL for outlawing the strike I pro ceed from the fundamental pre mise that controversies in the fielc of industry should be no less sub ject to court its differences tha arise between individuals In short Im merely advocating an extension of the existent system ofvjustice in our land From both and will re I sistance to a proposal on the grounds that compulsory ar bitration which is what I am really suggesting would be to de prive them of a fundamental right and freedom That woult have been a reasonably good ar gument a century it isnt good in an era when more anc more the publics welfare is being Blven primacy As a matter of fact such an argumentin a very real sense is a throwback to those days cen turies ago when the establish ment of courts was proposed as of settjing disputes be tween man and man The idea was resisted by many who be lieved such a procedure would de prive them of the power that came to them by reason of thenbig dub or their long spear Im not saying nor do 1 believe that our system of justice is per fect It isnt It isnt anywhere near perfect But despite this I know nobody who opposes the basic idea ofa court system More and more our freedom is becoming a freedom under law Law and order have become the principal ingredient of civiliza tions advance When men dis agree they take their differences to court for arbitration accordin to set rules TN the field of international rela tionships the principle of ar bitration is all but universally ac cepted After the last war we set up a court but failed to pro vide a police force That was as if we neglected to provide a sher iff or police department to exe cute the orders of a district court judge The plan failed because of this shortcoming Another war came Now we know that any world court to be effective in bringing about peace and comity between nations mnst be implemented by a world police force We have learned but weve learned slowly The foremost barrier to prog ress in creating an orderly world has been the disposition of some our be more concerned with their sov ereign rights than with the avoidance of war Weve wanted to protect ourselves weve been suspicious of the umpire The re sult War and more wars A DOCTOR from Mars would diagnose our ailment as myo pia Each nation has been guiltv of shortsightedness Each looked for what appeared to be for its own immediate selfinter est Weve refused to view the en tire world scene from a properly distant point of view And thats exactly what is hap pening on the industrial front management has been applying just one test question What will this do to me The individual worker has been applying that same test question What will this do to me And that test question should be What will this do o of us In an individual situation work strike or lockout may seem to be justified at least according to past standards But almost without exception such a work stoppage has unexpected repercussions in other plants where no quarrel exists In the rather brief period since the end of the war we have seen numerous examples of olants closed down because they

Automobile Workers union will call a conference ot General Mo tors Workers next Saturday to de cide whether they will heed a re quest by President Truman to end their wage strike against the cor poration R J Thomas UAWC1O president said Monday President Truman intervened directly in the nationwide strike of General Motors workers Monday when he informed congress that he was asking the strikers to re turn to work immediately Mr Truman also set up fact finding boards tc deal with the General Motors strike and threat ened steel walkout and asked congress for permanent machin ery to handle labor disputes in important nationwide industries The president appealed publicly for 225000 ClOUnited Automo bile Workers to return to their jobs in the big General Motors corporation and urged the approxi mately 700030 who might be in volved in a steel strike to remain at work Mr Truman acted in a special message fast on theheels of the 1 a b o rmanagement conference which could not agree upon a fact finding recommendation He proposed A law for setting un machinery for naming factfinding boards to prevent work stoppages in im portant nationwide labor dis putes A ban on strikes or lockouts for at least 30 after certificA tion of a dispute by the secretary of labor 20 for the factfinding board to deliberate and 5 more The president cited such wide spread industries as steel auto mobile aviation mining oil util ities and communications as those to which the act should apply This list however was not con clusive although Mr Truman said the legislation should not cover small and local labor troubles A short time before the presi dents message Thomas had asked U S Attorney General Tom Clark to investigate General Motors op erations contending the corpora tions control of a large part of the supply of fuel pumps for the industry constituted a monopoly The request was made by Thomas in a telegram which stated that control of a single vi tal item gives General Motors corporation a control over its competitors that is contrary to the public interest Thomas in his telegram cited a letter by C E Wilson General Molars president in which GM offered to reopen its parts plants to supply other automobile man ufacturers only The International UAWCIO accepted this offer only to have some prominent locals op pose the plan Meanwhile Joseph C u r r a n president of the CIO National Maritime Union called the unions 90000 workers out at 7 a m CST Monday for a 24 hour work stoppage in protest against what tie contended was the slow return of servicemen from abroad He said
