Democrat And Leader, The (Newspaper) - February 22, 1949, Davenport, Iowa T-H LAW BRINGS FRICTION, SAYS NLRB CHMRMAN Examples of Delay, Un- certainty, Needless Liti- gation Also Cited. Washington. The Na- tional Labor Relations Board chairman said Tuesday the Taft- Hnrtley law has brought "friction" between the board and Us general counsel. Paul M. Herzog, the NLRB chairman, cited examples of "fric- tion, delay, uncertainty and un- necessary litigation" in a letter to Senator Morse Morse put the letter Into the senate labor committee record. The committee is holding hearings on the administration's bill to re- peal the Taft-Hartley law and re- store the old Wagner labor rela- tions act with some changes. At the time Morse produced the letter, Gerhard P. Van Arkel, a former NLRB counsel, was in the committee's witness chair. He had just testified that he believes the Taft-Hartley law has "positively discouraged" collective bargain- ing. Van Arkel quit as NLRB coun- sel in 1047 in protest against the T-H Jaw. He was succeeded, by Hobert N. Denham, and it was to relations between the board and Denham that Herzog referred. However, Herzog was talking not of personalities but what he regarded as inevitable difficulties stemming 'from separation of the powers of the board and the coun- sel under the T-H measure. Under the law, the counsel and the board have separate powers. The counsel is, in effect, the chief prosecuting officer for the law. Morse said Herzog's letter makes it clear that "the seemingly ami- cable relationship between the general counsel and the board does not exist in fact." Morse said the only solution is to make the general counsel again subordinate to trie Hoard, as was the case under the old 'Wagner act GOOD HUNTING IN ENGLAND. Tavlstock, Eng (AP) J. Doidso and L. E.

Extradition papers were being prepared Tuesday by Rock Island State's Attorney. Bernard Moran, despite the fact that she has claimed in Florida that she would not fight removal to Illinois for prosecution. She is currently at liberty under bond. The warrant for her arrest was based on the alleged theft of worth of silver, crystal and linens from the home of her" husband's brother, Attorney Harry M. Schriver. former Hock Inland: mayor. The woman was named in a supresscd indictment of the May. 1948, Rock Island county I Brand jury. Police have been seeking her j since the indictment, following her trail thruout the country. She was located in St. Petersburg, living under the name of Linda Thomas. The attractive former beauty operator, who once worked in the Sherman hotel, Chicago, and the attorney, a bachelor, were wed in December, 1940.

Meantime about one in every ive cars accepted the UAW of- ered handbills, but some of them hrew them out car windows later. Several times drivers in cars ook the handbills and then tore hem up. One man threw the torn up pamphlets in the UAW men's faces. Another took a handbill and hen wiped the windshield of his car with it, JEERS AND CHEERS. Each time a man took a hand- bill and did not throw it out of iis' car, the FE crowd shouted 'scab." Whenever a driver ac- cepted a handbill and then threw t out of his car later, the FE ;roup let out a loud cheer. As the taunts and jeers of FE men at the UAW handbillers in- creased a group of about 20 state police moved closer, apparently n expectation of an outbreak of violence that they intended to prevent. Several times tempers flared and a hot exchange of words was ossed.from UAW to FE or from FE to UAW but the barrage never got beyond the verbal stage. Four FE men, served with war- rants 'charging them with rioting as a result at the Feb. 10 fracas at the..East Moline -factory, in- cluding Kenneth Kites, Alvin Medina, Burton Foster and Jerry last, an internal ional representative for were released on recognizance lending their appearance in East doline police court Tuesday after- noon. Warrants were signed Mon- day morning by Mike Dergo, UAW international representative, and Bill Daniels, president of UAW ocal No. 865. CONTINUE RESISTANCE. Sheets said his union would continue'to resist what he termed the "raids" of UAW. A UAW spokesman said that the UAW's plan of -handbilling is only one ol about 20 means of organizing used by that union. The UAW man added that "as ong as workers in the EaitiMo- ine 1HC plant continue to sign cards for UAW membership, we're nore than satisfied." Altho the-UAW man would not say definitely, reports indicate that in" excess of several hundred :ards for UAW membership have ieen signed by workers of the East Moline plant. One incident preceding the handbilling that was not an indi- cation of what was to follow, was an East Moline police report of a sparkplug being tossed at the win- dow of the UAW meeting hall, 1034 Fifteenth avenue, East Mo- line. Damage was a destroyed store window-type plate glass and no injuries were listed. (Contlnufd from PaM Oat.) introduced the first bill, said it would prevent the sale of "loss eaders."

Luke Caffrey (D-Crcsco) introduced a bill requiring the Fifth member of a legislative elec- tion contest committee to be a dis- trict judge, appointed by the state supreme court chief justice. Committees now are appointed by the presiding officer of each house. Caffrey's bill would con- tinue that arrangement for four coramitteemen, but provide for supreme court appointment of the fifth. Rep. H. F. Nelson (R-Sioux City) introduced bills to prohibit the issuance of beer licenses and tax permits to persons or firms with due or delinquent per- sonal taxes. Another bill would transfer the authority to stop trucks and weigh them from the highway commission to the com- merce commission. Sen. Arthur Jacobsen (R-Wau- kon) introduced legislation to re- peal the present maximum tuitions which one school district may charge another for instructing its pupils. The measure would au- thorize the superintendent of pub- lic instruction to fix the rates. The senate passed and sent to the governor a house-approved measure applying the penalties foi drunken diving to persons con- victed of operating motorboats while intoxicated. Meanwhile the senate, which for years has kept local option beer bills bottled up in committee was buzzing at the irony of a loca option beer bill having been in- troduced by a committee. The four-member election re- form committee Monday intro- duced a companion bill to oni which is on the house calendar for consideration.
