A majority of those voting on that Issue decided the states ballot should be altered for next change not sure notwithstanding the election results he said there was no Complete certainty As to whether the ballot actually will be changed due to a Legal problem to be decided by the Ohio supreme court. But the Pac official pointed out tuesdays vote a was not a vote of Confidence in Robert election results he said showed that 22 Rural counties considered to be Taft strongholds voted against the ballot change. At the same time big City voters who have in the past opposed senator Taft voted for the Massachusetts ballot. Other issues a number of circumstances contributed to this result Dayman said. They included a first the Oleo Issue got people in the habit of voting a yes on the ballot. Second the labor movement liberals in general did no to do a Good enough Job. Third the proponents poured at least a Quarter of a million dollars into an enormous propaganda drive.

Steel settlement was also voiced by members of the 3-Man presidential fact finding Board which had recommended company financed pensions while urging against a Gerrera wage increase. Asked if the . Steel agree it continued on Pae it an editorial # last week we still hoped for Rollin Everett selection at the time this paper went to press. This week we know the bitter truth. Rollin did not come in. He kept on gaining from transfers but could not overcome the initial Low total of first Choice votes. We know that there were mistakes made All along the line and that the republicans had singled out Everett for an unprecedented whispering and smear Campaign. Bui Are also k iese tilings a it Only contributing factors. The number one reason Why Rollin h. Everett was not reelected was that we the Cio members did not do an effective Job in our own wards and precincts. Too Many of us the Cio rank and file did pm bother to go to the polls and give our support to the candidate who has done More for Good and honest City government than anybody in Cincinnati. Why we think we know the answer. Passing the Bucko let George do it. Our Pac office thought they were not getting enough support from the local unions. The local unions Felt they were not getting effective guidance and leadership from Pac. Everybody thought Everett is in anyhow Why bother. Door Bell ringing work in wards and precincts effective local Union work was very rare in this Campaign. The result is Clear. We have to Start All Over again. We have to build up a Pac organization which reaches every Union member and his family. We have to spend time and Money on these efforts. We have to take Stock of the shortcomings and weak spots in our organization. And we have to plan. We have to plan effectively and with authority. We have to Stop appointing committees which appoint sub committees which might find someone else to do the work. Pac in Hamilton county can regain its strength and prestige in the Community but Only if every Union member becomes a Pac worker.
