I am sure that the American people realize that the president acted only when it was clear that the welfare of the United States dictat ed positive action under the law Such action was upheld by the courts of our land Sure Hagerly replied when asked whether his remarks ap plied to several other labor lead ers who had been critical of Ei senhowers handling of the steel strike Mazcy secretary

that the TaftHartley Act is a slave labor statute that can be used to make men work against their will The union group itself claiming to represent seven million labor union members adopted a resolu
