Only Industry comment came from Republic steel willing try join with the Union a in a study of the whole pension the firm disputed the boards proposal that pensions be wholly financed by Industry but hailed its denial of a wage increase. The Board it said a has effectively put an end to the demands of labor unions in this country for general wage increases in fit is wr�e3g to change the a to pallet Here Are the reasons Why it is wrong to change the Ohio ballot 1. No other state in the Union has the kind of ballot suggested in the amendment pushed by the Taft gang. 2. Only six states in the Union fail to permit straight party voting. 3. The present form of ballot has been in existence in Ohio since 1891 58 years and the voters of our state will be confused and bewildered by a drastic sudden change in voting under the or nosed Arifian to . We Don t thousands of Ohio citizens to be disfranchised merely because they have not had a formal education. 5. Every voter should have the right to express his party sentiment by a straight ballot if he so desires. There Are Only two months left to defeat this attempt to steal the Ohio election remember the state wide vote on this Issue will be on november 8. 194 9. Clothing workers give factory to italian town Everett Points to service record of by Rollin a Ever Ell City councilman citizens of Cincinnati Are being offered this year by the City charter committee a coalition of candidates representing labor business and professional men pledged to carry on the program of Public improvements and human welfare which the present charter majority in City Council has gotten underway. Statements thus far from the organization Republican Headquarters indicate that the gop Campaign to regain control of Council again will be based on name calling and vilification. Just two years ago the organization put on such a Campaign against p r o p o r tonal r presentation with the rather Frank admits i o n it was prompted by a desire to remove fro m Everett City Council the representation which i had Given labor in it. Not Only did the Public soundly repudiate that gop Effort but honoured me by giving me a larger first Choice vote than i had drawn the first time out despite the fact that another labor candidate also was elected. The City charter committee gained control of Council. We have made very real accomplishments in those two years and the program which we have started rolling will become even More apparent in the years immediately ahead if the Public As i believe they will choose to leave control of this program in the hands of men who Are not controlled by a political organization such As holds Forth at ninth ahead. Never has the Public of Cincinnati been so aware of the crying need for modernization of our Highway system of the blight of slums the need for decent i housing and for recreational and health facilities As it has under i the efforts of the charter Majori i to in Council to bring these lessons Home. As chairman of City planning committee which has had a great Deal to do with rallying support of the various parts of the Community behind this program i have had a sense of real satisfaction in Progress. And i Hope to be in a majority which can continue to carry Forward what was vote is needed the great danger in such an election As this is Public apathy. There is no proportional representation Issue on the ballot this year nor any other one Issue which in itself will be designed to get out a Large vote. There Wil Trumon ready for 1950 Campaign president Truman will be in j front of the Battle fighting for the fair Deal when issues Are joined in the 1950 Campaign. The president will be striking his first blows in a few weeks. Or. Truman lashed out at reactionary special interests in his two major addresses on labor Day. At Pittsburgh he called j again for repeal of the Taft Hartley act. At Des Moines he spoke of the need for a sound farm program. In both cities the president denounced special interests who have been fighting his program with scare words and trumped up slogans like a there Are still Many reactionary senators and representatives in Congress a or. Truman said. Many of these will be up for election next fall and White House sources disclosed that or. To some citizens Down through 9 choices. That is Truman would demand their de new York up a the amalgamated clothing workers Cio has Given a factory to the town of Carrara Italy. Disclosing that act members contributed $250,000 to the project pres. Jacob s. Potofsky said the unions venture a is a living example of what a democratic Trade Union can do in spreading effective and practical Goodwill across the seas. It was in response to appeals to help ameliorate both the acute unemployment situation among italian i clothing workers and the clothing i shortage in the factory which is a nonprofit development will employ about 400 workers. Equipped with the latest modern Machin Ery it also includes a recreation room cafeteria a Nursery for children of working mothers and i Shower rooms. Philip de Luca an act official has been in Carrara a year serving As a Liaison Man Between the Union the town and the factory. Fine Public charter group who will feel a Well i am pretty. The Way or works successfully. And if he wants his first Choice to win he should talk to his friends and neighbors about casting first Choice votes for that candidate if they have not already made up their minds. Then urge them to vote 2 through 9 for candidates who believe in the same program for the City. J feat in a whistle Stop Campaign. Back in Washington the president told his press conference that he expects to name names As he swings into his Campaign against the a special interests. Whether he will carry that Campaign on into 1952, running for j re election appears to hang on the outcome of next years elec Tion. Rush for insurance premiums Well satisfied with the Way the City is being run. There is nothing to get excited and on election Day they May even fail to vote. We know already that j there Are thousands who Are not even registered to vote. Thai is Jusi Duck soup for the organization political workers. They will see that their vote is gotten out. It is up to labor and the friends of Good City government to get out a Large vote again As two years ago. The Issue of carrying on the improvement of our City j is just As vital As any which could confront Choice votes another danger for such a candidate As myself who has been a in office and Active is that there j will be those who will say a ooh a he is certain to win this year. He does no to need my first Choice that has undone Many a candidate under or before. Every j successful candidate must get a Large number of first Choice votes. Personally i will feel that every first Choice vote will be j an endorsement of those things for which i have striven in the j last two years.
