Everett City councilman the Republican Bosses Are proposing a system of City elections under which a minority of voters could control All nine seats in City Council. They Are doing this with their Eye on some very Juicy plums from which Cincinnati s system of Good government has blocked them for last 20 years. And they Are particularly anxious to eliminate from Council any labor representation so they can handle City Hall As they have been handling july 2.-�, i 947 county affairs. Where your Pac Dollar goes it stays Home Community Pac labor s got a Date with 48 labor scores political Victory while defying Taft Hartley Bill Baltimore a up it a la Bor scored a resounding Victory in the first congressional election since passage of Che Taft Hartley Law last a week by aiding in the sweeping win of democratic magistrate Edward a. Garmatz in a special third Maryland District race. Garmatz backed by Al and Cio outscored the combined vote for both his opponents in Light balloting getting 12,200 votes to the 7,100 of his nearest rival City councilman Simon p. Jarosinski who ran As an a a Independent Democrat. Republican Edwin s. Panetti a corporation lawyer was a weak third with 3,800. Despite labors influence in electing Garmatz there was no sign that the Section of the Taft Hartley act forbidding labor a a contributions to political campaigns in Federal elections would be invoked on behalf of either Defeated candidate. The election had been selected As a testing ground for the Taft Hartley political action ban which sen. Robert a. Taft to had told the Senate in debate on the Bill would outlaw support by a labor newspaper financed by unions rather than individual sales. Since that time How Ever Taft has hedged on the specific meaning of this Point in reference to the Baltimore election. In its july 14 Issue the Cio n Elk Nationo-1 Cio weekly printed several thousand copies of which the front Page consisted of an Appeal signed by pres. Philip Murray for Baltimore third District voters to rally behind Garmatz. He stated the action w As considered a breach of the slave labor Law and he welcomed a court test of that Section of the act As a violation of press Freedom guaranteed by the . Constitution. The federation st weekly Organ of the Baltimore federation of labor Al covered the front Page of its july 11 Issue with Garmatz Campaign and ran an extra 28,000 copies in addition to its 35,000 paid subscriptions. A working Man himself having been a member of local 28, into. Bro. Of electrical workers Al for 28 years Garmatz carried on Muci. Of Bis Campaign in Union Halls tooth Al and Cio. The Well oiled political machine would have to Only control a Strong Block of minority votes under its proposed system with which it would replace proportional representation to elect All nine councilmen. While those votes were going to the nine machine controlled candidates the majority of voters might split their votes among 12 or 15 other candidates thus giving the nine run by the Bosses the High vote. Suppose for instance the gop put up nine candidates and the charter nine candidates while several Independent candidates entered the Field. Independent candidates Seldom split a Well controlled machine vote but Are useful in splitting coalition vote. Many false issues May be raised by the gop in the coming Campaign to Decloud the real Issue. I will meet these in this column As they arise. Roii pm a surfs. Minority by most important thing a member at the outset is that a Cuizhen if he Voies Lor Iune candidates under or can be sure that some of his candidates will be in Council to represent him. Even if 51 per cent of the voters voted Republican an Independent voter could pretty Well depend under or on four charter ites being elected to guard his interests. But under the gop system such a vote would very Likely mean a solid Council of nine republicans leaving the other 49 per cent of the citizens unrepresented. The difference is that under or even if a citizen votes for one of the independents who is not elected his vote will pass on to another Choice and w ill count for someone who is elected. Would kill votes but under the gop system a vote cast Tor an unsuccessful candidate becomes a dead vote. 1 continued on Page 4� Cio and Al still differ on methods toward Unity Pac a line congressman says Freedom includes the right to pay starvation wages Freedom to rep. Max Schwabe r of Columbia mo., Means the right to pay starvation wages. He was asked the question Point Blank recently during the House debate on a proposal to increase the minimum wage from 40 to 60 cents an hour. Schwabe replied a if you want to put it that earlier in the debate he said by Way of illustration that if a Man w ent to an auction Sale and bought an article cheaply it was his right and if the Man a hires a worker cheap that a the american and if rep. Schwabe gets licked next election that a the american Way too. A a Strong meat senator Kenneth s. Wherry r of Pawnee Nebraska a licensed embalmer and funeral director comes up for election next year. Just about a year ago he was helping to Bury opa and these Are his words Quot without Price control meat will Cost less. Meats consumed by average families now Cost 80 per cent More than they did a year ago. Maybe the Nebraska voters will be Able to persuade Wherry to eat Crow. \ a a Congress is about to repeal the profit limitation provisions of the Vinson Trammell act of 1934, which applies to ship and air plane production. According to the House armed services committee a Economy would be effected by repeal of the profit limitation because the maximum allowable profit has become the the Vinson Trammell act limits profits to 12 per cent. That a what they re repealing brother and we now enter the Era of untrammelled profits a a More from Moore senator Edward h. Moore. R of Tulsa okla., whose term expires next year does no to say much on the Senate floor but he does no to have to.

One Day last Spring he piped up on Price control As follows a it has weakened the morale of our what people the average factory worker today works 12 hours for food costing $14.24. A year ago while Moore was speaking the average factory worker would have worked 9 hours and 35 minutes for the same food.
