Charleston Daily Mail (Newspaper) - February 11, 1937, Charleston, West Virginia THE CHARLESTON DAILY MAIL, THURSDAY EVENING, FEBRUARY ll, 1937 PAGE ELEVENUNION WINS RECOGNITION FOR OWN MENAS STRIKE ENDS AUTO CONCERN RAISES WAGES Senate Judiciary Group Takes up Court Plan Go to Work Soon As Plants Are Evacuated (Continued from Page One) week, six-hour day and pay and a half for overtime; establishment of a “minimum rate of pay commensurate with an American standard of living,” seniority rights and reinstatement of employees “unjustly discharged.” abolition of piece work systems of pay, and agreement on speed of production between the management and a union shop committee. The ceremony of signing the pact that ended a 44-day strike required only IO minutes. It was delayed for 45 minutes, however, by a criminal trial in progress in the court room which had been the scene of the extended negotiations. Confer at Length Labor and corporation representatives arrived at the ll a. rn. hour originally set for the ceremony. They conferred at some length with Governor Murphy and Dewey. Four hundred persons packed the room when they finally entered. They filed in one bv one. Governor Murphy. Dewev. Knudsen. Donaldson Brown, chairman of the General Motor? finance committee; John Thomas Smith, general counsel for the corporation; Lee Pressman. general counsel for the C. I. Ch. and Mortimer. They sat at the clerk’s table, in front of the judge’? bench. Murphy borrowed Mortimer’s fountain pen and handed it to Knudsen. who signed the letter to Governor Murphy containing a qualified promise of sole recognition for the U. A. W. A. for six months. Then the corporation executive placed the first signature on the peace pact, one minute after the conferees had entered the court room. In turn. Smith. Brown. Mortimer and Pressman affixed their signatures and the strike was over. Governor Murphy attested the document. There were no remarks. Silence overhung the court room. Then the scfce wa? reenacted for news cameramen, statements were written out. and the ceremony was concluded. At 12:25, Governor Murphy and the labor representatives reached Lewis hotel suite with the agreement. The General Motors representatives did not accompany them. There, behind closed doors, the bushy-browed labor leader placed the sixth and final signature on the treaty. Seated in bed. he used a huge fountain pen in keeping with his own bulk.

January 3. the day after the first injunction was issued. the union formed a board of strategy at a rally in Flint and empowered it to call a general strike against General Motors if it deemed this necessary to obtain consideration of its eight demands, chief of which was recognition as sole bargaining agency of the employees. Becomes Concerned In office less than a week Governor Murphy became concerned as spread through Michigan and a dozen other states. He offered his services to conciliate. Then came ti * s Plan Further Parley DETROIT. Feb. ll (AP). — The General Motors strike, which paralyzed nearly half of the nation’s automobile production facilities, ended today. The agreement was signed early today. An informant added that minor questions would be negotiated in a forthcoming conference after work has been resumed. General Motors, it was reported reliably, would resume operations as soon as possible after the plants have been evacuated. Resumption of full operations would return approximately 100,-000 General Motors employees to work, in addition to raising 35 000 others from a part-time to full time basis. Forty plants of the corporation’s various divisions have been closed or operated on a restricted basis, completely halting the production of General Motors passenger cars. Take Over Third Plant Since January 30 “sit-down” strikers have held two Fisher Body plants at Flint—the focal point of the labor dispute—and a week ago union workers in the Chevrolet No. 4 plant also started a “sit-down.” Governor Frank M urph y. who called together representatives of both sides a week ago yesterday at the “wish” of President Roosevelt, announced the settlement at 2.40 a rn. today, after the fourteenth joint meeting of delegations for General Totors and the U. A. W. A. N Michigan's 43-year-old governor spent virtually all of the time since his inauguration January I to composing the opponents’ differences. lie was aided constantly bv James F. Dewey, federal labor conciliator. ' Called Strike in South Aith ough the strike did not attract national interest until it became spectacular through the occupation of the two Flint Fisher plants by the “sit-downers,” the union actually began its campaign to win recognition and other concessions from Genera! Motors when it called a strike August 18 in the Fisher plant at Atlanta. Ga. It was a “sit-down,” but the strikers held the factory only a few days. Gradually the strike.? .spread to otfier plants of the corporation, finally extending from New' Jersey to California and from Georgia to the Great Lakes. At the peak at least 135,000 General Motors employees were out of work. Flint, with one-fourth ot its 165.-000 population employed by General Motors, became the strike “capital.’’ Two serious disorders and several other minor one: occurred there. In the first—January ll 27 persons were injured, and Governor Murphy dispatched Michigan national guardsmen to the scene. The second disturbance, ii:    ■    hn-h a dozen were hurt February I. to the establishment of a mu.ta:    • zone around more than a dozen Co oral Motors building?. In the ai c a were Fisher Body plant No. 2, where. the January 27. not occurred, aud Chevrolet No. 4, both occupied by strikers. w Additional troops were sent to "Flint. Although the total reached 3.-3O0. only J.200 were on patrol duty. The others were held in reserve. Twice General Motors went into circuit court at Flint to obtain injunctions against the occupation of its property by strikers, but in neither case was action to remove thorn carried out. “An agreement has been reached tinder the terms of which the union agrees to end the strike,” began Governor Murphy’s dramatic announcement m a room on the twelfth floor of a hotel where the negotiations were concluded A moment later he added that Sec- eral Motors executives said em- , Januarv ll street riot outside Fumer plovees were losing $1,000,000 a day jsio. 2 at Flint, and the mobilization in wages. How much greater the cf national guardsmen, actual cost was. because of lost business and idleness in related industries defied calculation. Knudsen and Lewis headed the rival group? of negotiators in the conference that brought success to Murphy s ceaseless effort? to bring peace to Michigan’s greatest industry. They and their associates held The next night the governor summoned heads of butin sides to meet him “without condition or prejudice ’’ Their meeting resulted in the “Lar: .ct uce. winch never violation. Convenes in Detroit A day later Governor Murphy convened at Detroit the meeting that finally ended in today’s agreement. Tensely Flint watched the deadline that afternoon for striker.^ to leave, but they remained. The sheriff was given an order to eject the men. bid t without the aP of national guardsmen. Last Saturday night Murphy announced that the conferees were deadlocked over the question of the extent of union recognition, and M nriav night a? the negotiators met there were rumors that the proceedings would break up. General Motors issued a statement indicating that it saw little use in continuing the conversations, but the governor insisted that they continue. Til at was tf« turning point, he said today, rn the parley. It was then. Murphy asserted, that “the backbone of the strike was broken.” l akes Measures On Late Arrivals SHANGHAI < UP > Cmne • bar oto come Allld proc that General ,M tors move equipment or c!o?ed plants durin and that the eight < be negotiated in a l ogin after the plant cared. the t Three zacuate OI 14 joint meeting? with the governor then held by 9 a and Federal Conciliator James F.

Walk-Out Means    Walk-Up New Yorkers (Continued from Page One) Chairman Sumners, of the house judiciary committee, planned for a time to seek immediate passage of a second judicial bill. This will give the government the right to appeal directly to the supreme court from adverse district court rulings, and to intervene in private law suits where a constitutional question was involved. Sumners decided not to call up this measure yesterday. He said the White House had some questions about it. Presidential aides asserted the chief executive wanted to look over the bill to see if it fitted into his reorganization scheme. “The President intervened,’’ commented one Democratic house leader. House approval of the supreme court retirement measure foil >wed a bitter debate that split party lines. Representative Lamneck. Ohio business man, who opposed the administration last session on the undistributed surplus tax. delivered the first Democratic speech against the President's proposals on the house floor. He declared the proposals might lead to a “Hitler, a Mussolini or a Stalin government.” Representative Cox, of Georgia, chairman of a Democratic group .seeking to o r g a n i /. e opposition, joined in with the assertion: “A political and terrorized court is no tribunal of justice."

Green ? craft unions insisted th,it General Motors should make no agreement that would free the craft unions out of the auto industry. “I can express regret that the automobile worker? failed to secure recognition for their own group,” Green told reporters. “ The whole army of labor is injured to some extent when a division of labor sustains a defeat.’’ Green also circulated a formal statement in which he said in part that Lewis had abandoned In? demand for exclusive recognition rn 20 plants and “to thi? extent the settlement represent.? a surrender in a, v0, y large way to the demands of General Motors management.” Soon after details of the strike settlement became known in tho house. Representative Mason. Demo-Clat, Illinois, arose to assail Lewis as a “labor racketeer.” “Any man who will divide the ranks of labor iyto two camps -hostile camps ” Mason declared, “is not the friend of labor.” (Continued from Page One) a small sedan driven bv Miss ! Kearse. Simmons said, going south on Morris street between Quarrier and Virginia streets, drove into Vir- I ginia street and hit his bus on the j left front side, just ahead of the left front wheel. "This caused my wheels to lock." Simmons said. “and I lost control of the bus. You can see where the bus went after I lost control.” From marks on the street, and from a badly wrecked sedan, the property of R. E. Woodrum. which was parked in Virginia street, just j in front of the Mountain State hospital, the bus swerved to the right. The right side of the bus struck the front of Mr. Woodrum's parked automobile and crushed it into a telephone pole The bus continued : going to the right, went over the | sidewalk, struck a telephone pole, knocking it to the ground. The bus j continued on across the sidewalk, climbed up on a lawn about two feet higher than the sidewalk, and then j swerved back toward the street, ap- : parentiv under control by the driver j at this time. As the ba? came down off the lawn and across the sidewalk, it grazed another telephone pole be- I fore coming to a stop diagonally across the street, where it struck another car, and stopped. No Great Excitement Simmons reported that there was 1 not a great deal of excitment among his passengers, and that he believed that none of them was hurt. For a minute or so after the bus j came to a stop, passengers could j i not get out because the doors were j tightly closed and bent. I The back doors were pried open bv passengers, and they went out : that way. After the impact, the car which Simmons said was driven by Miss Kearse, bounced back to the opposite side of Virginia street and came to a stop headed east in Virginia street. The front end of the car . was very badly wrecked. As the bu? came back into the I street from the lawns, it struck a i new automobile, parked at the curb, belonging to tile J. B Ruby Motor company The rear end of the new car was mashed in somewhat, and the car was knocked out into the street. ('lear Dangerous Wires The fire department was called to the scene, and workmen of the power company and street car com-j pair. arrived at the scene a few minutes after the crash. The workmen cleared away dangerous wires. R. Kemp Morton, of Virginia street, was a witness of the accident. I was walking out Morris street, from Kanawha street, toward Virginia street,’’ he said. “As I was passing the Morris street entrance of tho Mountain State hospital. I aw a small car approaching the vie: tv ti on cf Morris and Virginia .-tree’ in the middle of the street. It c;id not st p at the corner. ' At about the same instant. I saw the bus coming up Virginia ; Greet Tire small car ran into the j bus sti king it just in front of the I front left wheel. I went on to the c o r n e r of Virginia and Morns streets, and looked at the small car. which was damaged, and went on up tire Greet and looked at the bus. The appearance of the car and the bu- confirmed mc* opinion that the small car ran into the bus.” In Driver’s Seat * The driver of the bus was still in the driver's ?eat when I arrived at the bu-, he said “There were two girls in the front seat of the car that struck the bus. ‘Tile cirl that was driving tire small car.” Mr. Morton said, “got out of her car. and walked with a limp to the bus. Sire said something to tire driver, which I could not hear, and then left ’ It was 175 feet, officers ?nid. from tho place of the f ist crash to the I unt in the street where the bus stopped. M ss Kearse went into the home of J. F Daneke. of Virginia street, an i later went to her home in Kanawha street. Several street cars were held up nut ! tire wrecked automobiles and the bus were cleared out of tire way. \ D Moore, office employee cd the Ruby company, heard the first c at Morris and Virginia streets, i.u ; tire econri later as the big bus almost demolished an auto which was parked in front of the hospital. Galled Power Company “I ran to the window,” he said, “and saw the bus just as it was leaving the yard, When it stopped I noticed tire electric wires lying across the roof of the bus. There were no sparks or fire. but I tele-■ phoned the power company .at once to shut off the electricity.” He said there was no confusion among the passengers, j Although it was dented in several places and some of it.? glass was j broken, the bus was able to run under it.? own power. W B. McGorum. general manager of the Charleston Transit company, took charge of straightening out the traffic situation. MACHINE suns POTATOES RAVENNA, O (UP) -Henry S. Stockdale, salesman, has been granted a patent on a machine that sacks potatoes. The device consists of a chute containing a baffle to prevent the potatoes from falling into tho bag with too great momentum and an apparatus for holding the bag at the mouth of the chute until the proper quantity has fallen. Burglar Confesses; Put Upon Probation Charged with breaking and entering a store of H. R. Given, of 1119 Washington street. Edward Doran on Thursday pleaded guilty in intermediate court and was placed on probation for three years and ordered to pay costs of the case. Doran, of Charleston, was charged with taking cigarettes valued at $2.50 from the store when it wa^ broken into in December. The court dismissed a charge of breaking and entering the store of George Zakaib, of 1123 Washington street, and taking $6.80.

REBELS DRIVE UPON VALENCIA Temporary Loyal Capital Is in Danger; France May Aid Socialists By The Associated Press Conquering Spanish Fascist? drove eastward Thursday along -the Mediterranean in what was construed as development of a full force campaign against Valencia, temporary seat of the Socialist government. From Paris, the French, irked by reported Italian assistance last week-end in the Fascist seizure of Malaga, took up again their threats to intervene in the war on the behalf of the Valencia government Madrid echoed to the roar of artillery and the chatter of machine gun and rifle fire as her Insurgent besiegers launched one of the fiercest attacks of recent weeks against Fuencarral, a village on the capital s northern border. Insurgent a i r squadrons bombed the capital’s outskirts. At Barcelona. 310 miles northeast of Madrid, the autonomous state of Catalonia unified its regular army to insure that Socialist stronghold against Insurgent attack. Premier Le Blum’s newspaper, Le Populace, declared. “If Italy and the Reich do not cease their sabotage immediately and if international control is not established as an irresistible movement of democratic opinion in this country,” undoubtedly France would be obliged to “resume action with regard to Spain.” A general meeting of the French council of minister.? was called for Friday morning, presumably to deal with the situation. The French parliament may air the quarrel. There were reports that 12,000 Italian troops landed recently at Cadiz. Meanwhile, Facsist Spaniards claimed capture, without resistance, of Motril—a seaport about 60 miles east of Malaga and in line of a coastline advance toward government-held Almena ana possibly Valencia. Fascist officers predicted their men would reach Almena tomorrow. Almena is 70 miles from Motril and Valencia is more than 200 miles northeast of Almena. A Fascist report declared Insurgent bombers already had attacked and sunk a 2.500-ton steamer in an air raid on the Almeria harbor.
