Everett. He. Particularly directed his Challenge to councilman Gordon Scherer who in debating against or declared there was one charter councilman whose a every word act and vote in two years had reflected the interests of a Block supporting him. �?o1 am proud that my record has been one of trying to improve the lot of working people in Cincinnati a Everett declared a but Many of the issues on which i have acted and spoken have concerned the welfare of All citizens. A in this respect i am willing to pit my record item by item against that of Scherer. Let him and other candidates using the same line either put up or keep a till. A do they regard such issues As rents prices wages health traffic and housing of concern Only to labor. Does Scherer object because i said housing for veterans and convalescent care for ill Thi Idren should come before new houses for monkeys and Lions at lie zoo. A Scherer has privately been one of the most outspoken critics of police chief Weatherly. Why has he had so Little to say in Council up to now on this Issue a it is True that he has been the Independent of the Majori a Council men. But when the chips Are Down on so important i an Issue As a successor to mayor j j Stewart he swallowed his own i personal disappointment and voted for Boss Schnellert a hand picked candidate who was not i elected by the people. A the voted also to confirm the appointment of an Indian Hill Man to the University of Cincinnati Board though that suburb which does not pay taxes to Cincinnati is Over represented on the Board. Scherer is in no position to charge anyone else represents a special press behaviour is enquirer editorialists drop facts in labor smear the enquirer and the times Star both indulged themselves in the last week in flagrant use of editorial Dishon esties in an Effort to smear the political efforts of organized labor. The municipal primary in Newport ky., was taken by the enquirer As occasion for sneering at the effectiveness of the labor vote. It cited the fact that Morris Weintraub who has sponsored pro labor legislation in the Kentucky legislature ran fourth among four candidates for mayor. It also pointed out that Pete Noll Law Al ran tenth among 19 candidates for the City commission. A a. If the average working Man agrees with the Union leaders that unions belong in politics the results in Newport did not Bear it out a concluded the enquirer. It was easy to come to that conclusion when the newspaper was not honest enough to report that the highest number of Voles in that mayoralty race went to Robert Sidell business agent for the musicians Union. The enquirer did not report that the combined Cio and Al Register monday the last Day you can Register at the polling place in your neighbourhood monday oct. 6, which will he the last Day to Register before the elections nov. 4. The polling places will he open from 10 a.m., until 2 ., and from 4 ., until 9 Register to voice your protest leadership for the breaking of Price controls weakening of rent controls came from the local political machine in the person of sen. Robert a. Taft. That same machine is now proposing to abolish or elections of Cotin Clinen and take Complete control of City Council. Cociu oilmen then would be the tools of the Gas company and Cincinnat ians would be threatened with paying millions in increased Gas rates. Register now to voice your protest and to Back the fight of councilman Rollin h. Everett with a number i vote i political action committee in i Northern Kentucky made no endorsements in the races. The times Star meanwhile was reporting that picketing of sen. Robert a. Taft on the West a Oast was led by the progressive citizens of America Cio. This was an outright misstatement As progressive citizens of America is not affiliated with Cio and Cio is not affiliated with progressive citizens of America. Cio is affiliated with no political party and no political group but works entirely through its own political action committee. Even a highly prejudiced times Star editorial writer hardly could have failed to know that. It was Well publicized when Cio asked its leaders to associate themselves neither with progressive citizens of America nor with americans for democratic action. The facts Are though they were ignored by the times Star that Many labor leaders Cio and Al sought to dissuade their members from joining in the picketing of Taft. Let Taft talk and he will kill himself politically they said. Picket him and you Marty Rize him.
