American can company a profits soar in �?T48 to $26,910,269 total says the new this information comes from the financial reports of these companies issued Only last week. During the same week tax Rise prospects for corporations Are reported fading from Washington since business firms Are suddenly emphasizing reports of Lay offs Lack of orders Etc. Layoffs and cutbacks in production Are deliberately Over publicized so that workers will be fearful of losing their jobs and will accept increased Speed ups without protest. This also discourages wage demands or improved working conditions now asked for by a number of unions in. Various industries. At the same time having for the most part completed postwar expansion and re equipment programs Industry is now turning to the installation of new labor saving devices. In the past year Packard increased its weekly output of cars by 50% while increasing its production Force by Only 18%. Such methods Are bringing about More technological unemployment and less purchasing Power. In the state the democratic Senate majority backing rent control and other issues of president tinman so fair deals is up against heavy opposition in their Effort to avoid a filibuster by Southern Dixie crafts which can Stop All legislation now before that body. Vice president Barkley leading the democratic forces is try to reverse a ruling by Republican Arthur h. Vandenberg in the 80th Congress that a two third majority cannot curb the time limit of any debate on the floor. Sen. Vandenberg had interpreted the Senate Rule on cloture As applicable Only to pending legislation and not to other business of the Senate. A reversal by vice president Barkley would mean that cloture could be invoked to terminate the Southern filibuster. A score of Republican senators together with Southern Dixie crafts have announced that they will oppose such a change of rules. If they succeed Dixie rats can go on talking in relays indefinitely. Their reason for such action is to avoid introduction or discussion of presidents Truman proposed civil rights legislation. Since Federal rent controls affecting millions of citizens All Over the u. S. Have to be extended by March 31st by passage in House and Senate any extended filibuster would kill these controls automatically. They can be reintroduced As a new Bill after that Date by heavy pressure of the real estate interests and a Field Day by landlords without a protecting Law May cause hardship in Many instances. Lei the people know the Cio political action committee moved to give maximum publicity to the unpleasant spectacle of the current filibuster. In a letter from Pac director Jack Broil to Viet president Barkley a request is made to arrange for radio time for broadcast of the debate from the floor of the Senate and for its recording for preservation As a significant event in american history. The political action committee also stated that it conceives one of its most important functions to be the distribution of factual information concerning the operation of our government to the millions of working men and women of this country.
