Ever ii City councilman do the voters of Cincinnati want their tax dollars spent for Public improvements and services or do they want a slice of each Dollar taken out for political favors this is the most serious Issue in the City Council Campaign which w now is swinging into full heat now. Gordon Scherer gop Campaign r. Manager Ever ii is reported to have told associates he is out Quot to destroy the City charter committee Quot the coalition of business labor democrats and Independent republicans which brought Good City government to Cincinnati and has kept it Here. Every move the republicans have made in this Campaign has been designed to the end of splitting and destroying the charter group with no apparent concern about presenting a program for the welfare and Progress of the City. Their candidates Thunder about a Democrat socialists a the welfare state Quot Etc. They blast at Char ter republicans for associating with democrats and labor. Their latest device is to hurl a smear at City employees through Carl Rich with an ordinance to set up a a loyalty Board Quot for investigating these employees. It hardly is necessary to forecast such investigations would be used if under gop control in an Effort to discredit any Union people at City Hall who did not go along with the gop. Certainly the measure was not introduced with any serious idea of catching dangerous subversive agents planted among City employees for sabotage purposes. They would be the first to take loyalty pledges and would be the better concealed by this Type of false Security. The citizens should and i believe will look Back of this smoke screen for what is being concealed. Why does the gop want to a a destroy the City charter committee the answer simply is this for 25 years the City charter committee has stood Between the Republican organization and the political a a rewards which it otherwise could expect from City Hall. Even when the charter was a minority it was such an effective one As to prohibit any extensive changes. But what would happen should the gop succeed in its aim to destroy the Good government coalition there will be millions of dollars spent in the next few year on Public improvements in Cincinnati on waterworks on immense sewage disposal plants on streets traffic ways and Many other badly needed building projects to modernize the City. Will the land for these project be bought at the lowest possible Price and the contracts let on the most efficient basis under a Republican political regime or under a charter coalition regime the answer to the question is obvious. But i am going to spell i it out in no Uncertain terms in this Campaign. There was a real j estate Deal which i exposed in an investigation when our charter group took Over from the Republican majority which Carl Rich headed. I will explain that Deal s and its bearing on political Gravy in an Early article. It is essential to business an labor that the modernization of this City be pushed Forward with j determination and free from political plundering and graft. Those i who feel that a coalition of business and labor free of political domination can do this better than a political machine will find a real alive Issue in this Campaign and will get out and work for i votes one to nine for City charter committee candidates.

Representatives of big steel also agreed. Shown at meeting in Washington Are 1. To a Murray Federal mediation chief Cyrus s. Ching and . Steel pres. Benjamin Fairless. Federated pictures
