E councilman i feel singularly honoured this week that the Cincinnati enquirer has picked my defeat As its particular goal in next tuesdays election endorsing All other candidates for reelection. The endorsement of a newspaper which opposes labor Al every turn which publishes the Poison of Westbrook Pegler and which acts As the editorial voice for the Utility companies hardly would be a recommendation for me. I have stepped on the toes of Many of the enquirers pets since i have been in City Council and take satisfaction in its editorial proving the effectiveness of those efforts. Is gop thinking but nevertheless there is no use ignoring the fact that the enquirer editorial represents the thinking of the organization republicans. They obviously have decided that their one Hope of breaking City charter committee control of Council and of rendering labors efforts ineffective is i a their whole Campaign has been j Cio convention ousts communists one t it ased primarily on a smear a steel strike near settlement pretty Judy West.

Ironically enough this smear comes at the time that Jack Kroll is at the Side of Philip Murray Cio president engaged in a fight to rid to of its Small but noisy group of communist dominated unions. The republicans Hope by this device to hold Down the first Choice votes cast for me and to frighten other voters so that i will not get enough transfers to be elected. Too much optimism More dangerous perhaps than the Republican efforts along this line Are the number of persons spreading1 Over optimism concern while the steel strike showed signs of coming to an end the eleventh convention of the Cio which opened in Cleveland october 31, did the expected last tuesday when it passed a Resolution by an overwhelming majority to oust left Wing leaders from the executive Board of the Cio. President Phil Murray in a 67-Page report to the convention took off his verbal gloves and really gave it to left Wing leaders of about a dozen Cio unions. Obstructive clique a a Small but noisy clique of Union officials has followed a policy of harassment of oppose not Case with left Wing unions Quot i have examined at great length the a demands of the Small group within the Cio who adhere to the program of the communist party. The communist program for american labor is a program of destruction. It invites defeat for labor rupture of our organizations failure of attainment of even our most modest Fer affiliation upon labor unions which wish to join our Organiza Tion it obviously has the Power of Dis affiliation Over those organizations whose leaders policies statements and actions demonstrate their contempt and their hostility toward our general lug the votes i will get.

Under proportional representation every voter should actually cast his first Choice vote for the candidate whom he most wants elected writing the numeral 1 in front of that candidates name the numeral 2 in front of the name of his next Choice 3 in front of the next and on Down the line As far As he cares to go. Ballots quite often Transfer 9 places or More. Anyone who agrees with the Ion family so Long As its a disagreement among unions which support Basic philosophies of Cio and of our democratic system. But Murray said bluntly that s anyone with whom it disagrees should certainly not cast a first Choice vote for me.

A More than that the program of the a left Wing would enslave us to the Aims and aspirations of a party whose interests Are not those of american labor but Are directed toward the establishment of a retrogressive dictatorship in our life. A i want none of that. The Cio w ants none of leaders communists or communist dominated leaders of some unions seem More interested in a a using the Cio than in becoming a real part of the family Murray a report warned the Cio convention. These people he said a Are interested in the benefits of Cio affiliation without regard to the responsibilities that such affiliation clearly them what to do about the disruption provoked by the left wingers in the ranks of Cio convention delegates got a pretty Clear idea of Murray a thinking a no self respecting organization can Long tolerate this dangerous division. ,.
