Anyone who Ever had seen the system of electing City Council men proposed by the Republican political machine Here actually in operation under machine government never would vote for it. I know because i saw it operate for seven years in Kansas City. I was a Young newspaper reporter then on the Kansas City Star and my work led me Back of the scenes. Under the x system of voting As now proposed Here the puppets of Boss Tom Pender Gast sat in Complete control of Kansas City a City government. The City affairs were not carried on in opening meeting As they Are Here. Council first met at dinner at the Kansas Cit club where the councilmen received their in 1947 but t e same approach st auctions from Pender Gastis City manager. Then the puppet councilmen went to City Hall where they went through the motions of a meeting. There Seldom was a debate even for the Sake of appearances. Legislative items were droned off and voted on in accordance with decisions made at the dinner meeting. Kansas City taxpayers were being robbed and did not even a a not so pail is new slogan the Hoover promises of a full dinner pail in 1928 had changed to the Taft Call for an emptier dinner pail in Everett to americans economic cies was behind both Labur leaders commented this week. Throughout the nation the leading topic for All was High prices reports from labors Federated press showed As know to it for there was no competent opposition in Council to ques i Well As reports in the daily press. But the subject was approached from somewhat different angles. Labor recalled its Battle of Over a year to retain Price control until unusual economic factors in the Wake of the War had been straightened out. It recalled particularly the leadership of sen. Robert a. Taft and the National association of manufacturers in smashing controls. Sen. Taft on the other hand touring the nation in a bid for support for Republican presidential nomination was seeking to shift the blame for breaking of Price controls to other shoulders. His solution was a heat less meat and eat less extravagantly a and Tion the actions taken. # employees were Ward Heiers the City employees were used As War wheelers just As the county employees Are Here. City contracts were let politically. Public spirited citizens tried to break the shackles. But they met threats of business and professional reprisals or worse. Once a political machine gets a hold both on City and county government its grip is hard to break. Kansas City was unable to break it until the Federal government stepped in and sent Pendergast to the Penitentiary. It was a democratic machine. But decent democrats did no to like it. And decent republicans wont like it Here if they get it. It is the same wherever there is an All powerful machine government. That is True under Curley in Boston Hague in Jersey City or Crump in Memphis. And it would be just As True under Schneller in Cincinnati As it once was under Cox and Hynicka. Sick were victimised in Kansas City i saw sick people at general Hospital victimized by the machine. Spoiled meat was sold to the Hospital a competent switchboard operator was fired because she was too ill to canvass her precinct. And the confusion resulting from her removal slowed More than one emergency Hospital operation. But the Bosses could not tolerate what they considered a break in political discipline. A Beautiful Brook that wandered through a residential Section was paved with Concrete so Boss Pendergrast could sell More of his ready mix. Wide open prostitution was encouraged because it paid off As did harbouring of criminals who preyed on Missouri Kansas and Iowa Banks. And even a powerful newspaper hesitated to come to grips with the machine until the Federal government moved in. They still have the x system of voting in Kansas City. And despite the scandal that temporarily broke the hold of machine politics my friends there Tell me it again is creeping up toward a majority of the vote which would mean it again could control the City. Cincinnati does not have to worry under or that any one party will completely control Cincinnati. But Boss Schneller wants or voted out. Level wages off at 50 to 60 per cent Over 1939. Labor replied that Taft again was placing the blame on wages instead of on excessive profits which show up in every Industrial report. The workers purchasing Power has fallen steadily since the War due to Price increases outstripping wage increases while profits have Pyra Mided they charged. Return to unemployment such a levelling off As proposed by Taft would be a return to the Economy of 9 million unemployed which existed in 1939 and an abandonment of the goal of full employment and full production. The Taft theory actually is one of a involuntary rationing through inflationary prices a Federated presses economist said. 11 is a system under which Low income families would Bear the Brunt of Quot eating less Quot and would return to a substandard diet rearing children on less milk and meat than health requires. The administration launched a grand jury investigation of the meat packing Industry. But even were the Case pushed Federated press said it would take years before it would have any effect on prices. Worker loses ground Bureau of labor statistics figures showed clearly that Price Back to a Good old Days Quot for supervisors Washington a up a the labor relations reporter. A weekly analysis of labor Law much used by personnel officers of employers recently carried the following comment Quot so far As supervisors Are concerned the Law presently effective Taft Hartley is the pee-1935 common Law. Employers Are legally free to interfere with the unions discourage Union membership by discriminatory discharges and demotions maintain a blacklist. Engage in lockouts and refuse to bargain Back to the Good old Days according to the labor relations reporter. Some solution says joblessness can reduce prices Bott on up a a a Reservoir of unemployed is a possible solution for High prices sen. Ralph e. Flanders a i said Here Between hearings of a congressional sub committee investigating living costs. Flanders who is heading the investigation is former president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston. He said there were three solutions for High prices. The one he liked most was a statesmanship on wages by labor and on prices by As another alternative he suggested a a give up the idea of full employment and depend on a Reservoir of unemployed for regulation of wages and the third alternative which he regarded with obvious distaste was a go Back to government the Vermont Republican also announced he would have to excuse himself from the 3-Day Price hearings which opened in Boston sept. 16, he said he had to address a . Chamber of Commerce meeting. Increases have prevented the worker from Ever regaining his highest wartime purchasing level of $35.33 in terms of 1939 dollars. Though he had boosted his total average wage to $49.37 a week in june of 1947, his actual purchasing Power in terms of 1939 dollars was below $30 a week. Everywhere labor agreed that political action was the on Quot answer when wage increases brought in the front door through unions Are being hauled away through the Back door by manufacturers who control Congress.
