The Sun (Newspaper) - November 11, 1949, Cincinnati, OhioPublished by 1 lie g Rea 1 or c1 i or i n n a i i Industrial Union Council the it a Liberal Cio weekly owned by its readers vol. 1 l no. 26 20 Cincinnati Ohio int Rcd As second class matter june 30, 1944 at the Post office at Cincinnati 2, Ohio under act of March 3, 1879 november 11, 1919everett thank election race 0 m 40\ z so 0 Al at 11th convention b y r Oll in h. Everett City Council my thanks to Good Loyal friends who stuck by me in the difficult Campaign we just have gone through and this goes whether i win or lose As the count goes along. The re Cults otherwise than As a poor showing. A lot of reasons can be advanced and there will be Many opinions As to which is the most important. At the end of the first Choice count november 9, Rol tin h. Everett was in 10 the place. It is expected that his position will be improved considerably by transfers from the 6000 vote surplus of mayor Cash. Other candidates now still ahead of Everett might not gain from transfers. The Sun is keeping its fingers crossed for Rollin Everett. I. Certainly want to shoulder my share of the blame. After four years of the hardest work 1 Ever have done and with accomplishments to show for the work i certainly should have been Able to make More political capital than i did. From Early in the Start of the Campaign i was aware that overconfidence on the part of a lot of people was going to be my greatest Handicap. For months there was hardly a Day passed that someone did not Tell me i was As Good As elected then scoff when. I told them a. Third run is tougher than the second. Results became obvious the full seriousness of this became increasingly obvious in the closing Days of the Campaign by which time i was Able to forecast quite accurately what actually occurred. A Nant thing it seems to me is that we in Cio should take this As an indication of what we must do if we Are to contribute anything More than words to labor supported candidates next year. Political campaigns Are won by practical or t by the fact that Many of our people w7ere preoccupied with strikes and with the cio1 convention undoubtedly was another Factor in the situation. Just How much effect the con a Centra lion of the gop smear i Campaign on me had is hard to gauge. Some people from their 1 organization told me in the Clos lag stages of the Campaign that they considered it very effective. There is no question that there a were some outside of the ranks of labor whom we have helped i in the past who considered it i More respectable to work for someone who was not being smeared. And there were others from whom Aid might have been expected who took it for granted we had All the help we needed. Charter Victory seen we certainly can take satisfaction and i for one do take personal satisfaction in the first Choice run of the charter ticket As a whole. For Cio stood by its principles of promoting Good City j government and. Supported the whole ticket. There Are undoubtedly those in our own ranks who found this difficult to understand in View of 1 differences Over National politics. And individual political capital would certainly have been made by using different tactics. What we primarily Are interested in is a majority in Council which will work honestly to create More decent living Condi l Here s How the civic auditorium in Cleveland looked As the sessions of the 11th annual Cio convention were in Progress the week of oct. 31-nov. 4. Federated picture Cio convention ousts be new Union gets charter the big news from the 11th annual. Cio convention held in. The City auditorium in Cleveland was the ousting of the be Union of electrical radio amp machine workers and of the be farm amp equipment workers because of communist dominated leadership of those unions. The first Steps were constitutional. The convention amended tons. Whether i am in Council or not i want to know that what i have worked for in regard to slum clearance housing playgrounds etc., will be carried Forward. Former be local 757 first to rejoin Cio ranks Here when the membership of local 757 decided last sunday to Cut its ties from the communist dominated be they meant business. Double talk and difficulties put in the Way by the former left Wing officers did not keep Larry Williams from taking control of the Union Headquarters offices at 3953 Spring Grove Avenue after having been kept out by a set of different locks placed there. Williams formerly the financial Secretary of local 757, has expressed his opposition to the Iron tight clutch of the left Wing Over since his election to that office. He was picked by James b. Carey As the first Fie alive in this area of the new International Union of electrical radio amp machine workers. Local 757 voted unanimously at their sunday meeting to affiliate with this new body and according to Williams More than 85% of the labor Force at Formica is United behind the new officers to stay in Cio. The Surprise visit of James b. Carey Secretary treasurer of the to added color to the meeting at Turner s Hall which saw the birth of the new7 local. 7s7-cig. J Robert Quade former vice j president of the be local presided Over the disaffiliation decision taken by the members and. Was then elected president of the new7 Cio affiliated local. Other officers elected were Luther Richmond vice president Gerald Schneider financial Secretary and a1 Thielen recording Secretary. Raymond Messer Harry Kunkemoeller roman Seibert John Palmer Earl Saxton and Harold Carpenter were elected to the executive Board of the Wing absent following their newly adopted party line the former president Mckinley Davis and his follow7 ers stayed away from the meeting As did the bigger be boys from the National Cio convention. There this action had been termed yellow7 by president Philip Murray and been shown As an additional proof that the National be had already received its instructions from outside sources and was not its own free local acts another be local 729, representing workers at the Norwood Heekin can co. Dis affiliated from the be november 9, after hearing the recommendations of its executive Board. Follow7ng affiliation with the Cio electrical workers this company As Well As the Formica company will ask the Norb for an election to determine the Legal bargaining agent. According to Williams there is no doubt As to the outcome of the elections As the rank and file of these organizations Are Loyal americans who were shocked at the revelations of left Wing intrigue and cloak and Dagger dealings. As an example Williams quoted a letter written to Esther Tice saying that a strike at the Plant would be necessary for morale reasons and that she should get Back into the shop in order to run for local Union office. The International offered to implement her salary for the inconvenience of working in the Plant. Williams termed this arrangement As a unusual and wondered what the reaction of other workers would have been had they been informed of such action.

The new7 Cio be convention was set for nov. 28 in Philadelphia. 2.
