This prime question ol tac- tics and timing suddenly has become the most discussed topic in the labor world. President Truman, soon must de- cide what to recommend to Cong- ress. He has been getting plenty of conflicting advice. The President is expected to ask Congress to repeal the Taft-Hartley Act and restore the Wagner Act with certain ul- timately producing a new compro- mise labor law. Here is where the problem comes in: Should these things be done simultaneously. In one package? This might take lot of time. Or should they be done in two separate steps: (1) Quick repeal of the Tuft-Hartley Act and si- multaneous re-enactment of the Wagner Act; (2) Passage of the Amendments later. There Is considerable evidence that Mr. Trumun Is leaning to- ward the "one-package" approach. Sen. J. Howard McGrath of Rhode Island, the Democratic National Chairman, flatly predicted a "onc- packagt" bill this week.
