New GOP Leaders Shut Door on Dewey BERT H MILLER Washington UR The new had not offered the voters any SAME Black meani traffic death In pail 21 bouri management ot the republican na tional committee has slammed the door shut on Gov Thomas E Dewey of New York To the newspaper correspond ents in Washington came a com mittee news release containing a speech delivered Friday night be fore republican women in Hunt ing W Va by National Com mitteeman Walter S Hallanan Hallanan slugged impartially at the PendergastTruman ma chine and at the republicans 1948 presidential candidate He did not mention Dewey by name but charged him with being too smugly complacent in his un successful presidential campaign to defend the republican 80th con gress He said President Truman of fered the voters an unsound crackpot program and that Dewey welldefined alternative to it In fancy language Hallanan implied that Dewey had offered the voters a bogus choice As between the real new deal and a synthetic substitute he said they chose the real article Fifty per cent of them were so plainly disgusted that they did not vote at all That is all water over the dam We have turned that page in our political history and put it behind us We know that if henceforth the voters turn to the Truman Pendergast party it will be be cause they have decided to em brace socialism And swinging for another divot from Deweys hide Hallanan said that from here on out conscience and principle would guide the re publican party leadership because it had turned away from political expediency Henceforth he added it will espouse and defend party princi ples Hallanan apparently was speak ing for more than merely himself and to more than merely a local West Virginia audience He said the rededication of the republican party had been signalled by the election last August ofGuy G Gabrielson as chairman of the na tional committee Gabrielson suc ceeded Rep Hugh D Scott Jr of Pennsylvania who had been put in the job by Dewey after the 1948 national convention Bitter months of wrangling led to Scotts forced resignation and the election of Gabrielson by a onevote margin The committee remains sharply divided But the new management evidently in tends to swing away from the cam St Paul Minn AFL Saturday embarked on a plan to carv2 huge membership chunks from the CIO to ward achieving a figured 1000000member gain in 1950 Key officials of the American Federation of Labor said privately they expect to pick up big parts of CIO unions when the factional scrap the CIO comes to a head as may happen soon A showdown between the CIOs left wing and the right wing ele ments is shaping up for the CIO convention at Cleveland later this month CIO President Phillip Murray has threatened his left wing union leaders with expulsion Labor circles expect the result to be a splintering up of the CIOs major unions with the CIO trying to salvage as many members as possible and repudiated left wing leaders trying to drag large mem bership groups from the CIO Officials of the rival AFL in annual convention here are look ing forward to an expected CIO civil war with glee They say they hope to woo big CIO segments into AFL ranks as a result of the split Boost Power Thats what is behind the an nounced AFL goal to pick up a million new members next year to boost AFL political power in the 1950 elections The AFL has dressed up its com bined votegettingmembership as a centennial birthday celebration for Samuel Gompers the AFLs late founder Gompers had advocated a neu trality for labor in national poli tics AFL has discarded that poli cy completely for an extremely political role mostly in favor of democratic party candidates In fact the AFL convention voted Friday to quit holding con ventions in presidential election years after election day a Gomp erspolicy practice Instead a move designed to put the AFL deeper into politics Add Million Members Charles MacGowan president of the Boilermakers Union and a major AFL political leader tolcL delegates here that by adding a million new AFL members next year the AFL could make its political job that much easier He said it would boost AFL ballot power How the AFL could pick up a million new members in 1950 in trigued newsmen Because AFL leaders had reported spending al most from AFL nation al headquarters plus many times than amount from local union treasuries in the past year on member getting but netted only a little more than 20000 new ones Asked about this one top AFL man said Weve got to raid CIO unions or our organizing drive will be a We
