A Tennessee Man says he has changed Hla will 12 times. Strange what relatives will do to irritate people.

Even this far ahead we know where the first touch of Winter will come Coal Man i when will we Stop committing suicide and murder death rides again death on our highways is no stranger even on Ordinary Days. But on Holiday weekends just As the labor Day weekend which will officially end at Midnight tonight he is Al most As familiar As fishing rods thermos jugs and picnic baskets. The latest official count of labor Day weekend fatalities most of them traffic deaths stood at 250 plus when this was written. By Midnight tonight there will doubtless be scores of names to be added to the list. It is not hard to understand Why the last few hours of a Long weekend holi Day such As this should bring More traffic accidents than the first part of the period. People Are weary worn out from three or four Days of holidaying. In addition to that they Are in a hurry to get Home and to bed so they will feel like going Back to the Salt mines on tuesday morning. Many of them will not be Back on the Job tuesday morning. Or any other morning. Many of them will be on embalming tables rather than in bed. Many of them will be in bed but it will be a Hospital bed in the emergency Ward. Many of them will be piled up in baskets in Little pieces awaiting identification. All of us know that the safety experts can predict with amazing accuracy the number of people that will turn up in the obituary columns after a Holiday weekend. The fact that these predictions can be made with remarkable accuracy seems to indicate that few people Are trying to do anything to Lessen the Holiday Highway Hazard. True there Are More cars on the streets and highways now than Ever before but that does not Lessen the implications of the shocking fact that Highway deaths have increased from in 1949 to in the still More shocking fact that the experts Are freely predicting that the 1953 total will be More than dead. Eight Hundred a week killed on our highways 1 More than a Hundred people a Day the speeder the reckless Driver the drunk Driver the Driver who is in competent for any reason whatsoever Are All potential murderers or suicides. What can be done the answer is beyond us. But it must be somewhere in the future unless we All want to end up on a slab in the morgue. American labor should be thankful for its liberties free workers the world Over can be everlastingly proud that the East Ger Man uprising of june 17, one 6f the most significant events of the Post War Era grew out of workingmen s pro tests. For years the East German workers like those in the soviet Union and All satellites have been subjected to All the grinding pressures of exploitation. They have been living through a plan Ned depression ill housed ill Clad ill nourished. Qwerty has deliberately con trived for them so that the comm blast state might grow fat with tanks planes and guns. But in Berlin and other soviet zone go Man cities the red masters turned the screws too tight. They decided the standards of work perform which wage rates Are fixed be increased. This meant More work but no More Money. In America that tactic goes by the hated name of the berliners would t take it. They marched off their jobs and paraded through the City. The second Day was the big one. Strikes were widespread throughout East Germany. Demonstrations came close to toppling the puppet government. But then the soviet army intervened to re establish the workers this colossal communist Sham must now be evident to workers friends wherever men can read the truth and Are not blinded by emotion or prejudice. If you Are running a country for the Benefit of its working masses you Don t run them Down with armoured cars or fire tank guns at them Poinc Blank. The events of june 17 surely must have had dramatic Impact on Amer Ica s own labor leaders. They ought to have stirred More than Pride in the courageous resistance of other work ers. They should have aroused our leaders to new awareness of their own blessings. When you look at a real slave labor state in ruthless operation How hollow sounds the american labor cry that Taft Hartley is a stave labor it May Well have produced numerous in equities but it has not put labor in chains. European Union officials visit ing american factories and Union Halls Are constantly amazed at the Freedom and Independence of the u. S. Working Man. June 17 ought to have made labor in America deeply grateful for its Many liberties determined to move sanely and calmly toward both the removal of remaining inequities and the steady improvement of the workers lot.

Prof. Manning noted Columbia University scholar has compiled a detailed study of the soviet subjugation of the Ukraine particularly timely now when that policy is bearing bitter fruit.

The Piedmont Section faces the fall smiling knowing full Well that unless a calamity of some kind takes place in the nation business is obliged to be Good in this part of the country. The textile Industry has not entirely recovered from its slump but there Are indications that it Well improve soon. Washington labor Day 1953 represents something of a Cross Road for organized labor. For tilts is the first labor Day in 20 years that labor has been on the outside looking in. For 20 years labor enjoyed a situation a Hoveln its top leaders were not Only consulted at the White but where the Basic policy of Tiosh Roosevelt and tra Man was aimed at what might be called a people s administration. But today labor sees the Man it vigorously opposed safely ensconced in the White House naturally inclined to favor the policies of tic businessmen who backed him rather than the labor leaders who bucked him. So despite inc appointment of Martin Durkin head of the Al plumbers As Secretary of labor organized labor frankly that it is a Long Way from having any voice in Washington. Durkin cays that he s been consulted on All labor re marked one top labor Lender but Wal difference does that make when the Secretary of the treas Ury increases interest rates on the mortgages which every work ing Tan has to pay or difference does Dur Kin r consultation on labor problems make when the Treasury proposes a sales tax which increases tin Cost of living for every working Man or when the Eisenhower administration proposes cutting of cheap government electric Power thereby increasing the electric Bil which have to pay concluded the top Labo Leader we Are in the same position today As with Herbert Hoover. H had a labor Man William Nuckle do a in his Cabinet. But Hoo ver s policies were among the most reactionary in led to one of the worst depression in history. That s what we have u look out for the above View Point has cause two significant and important moves in labor circles 1. The greatest stimulus in Labo history toward Unity toward a amalgamation of the a. F. Of l and the Cio. 2. A much greater Elford to push policies that will help lower bracket groups generally regard loss of whether they belong to labor unions.

Both were opposed by the British. But in loth cases the quiet cooperation of Reuther and Meany scored a Victory. Both men also addressed the Stockholm meeting on East Ger any and sent a Telegram urging Isenhower to take a Strong stand support of East German work is. The president wired Back that e considered it significant that was the workers who were the Backbone of the revolt against communism. Labor leaders Inci mentally Point to Ike s laudatory statement in contrast to the state int of his attorney general her Bert Brown Ell that there Are More communists inside labor unions Han any other group.

Though living have really increased the factory worker s wages still buy More than twice As much As they did 40 years ago. Also twice As Many american workers own their own to Day compared with 1913. Just As responsible labor Leaden Are no longer smeared As except by extreme reactionaries. So has the american Workingman formed a new concept of relations with management. Because he and his family have prospered under our system the Workingman is a Strong believer in free Enterprise As Long As it does t become monopolistic. The word capitalist has pretty much disappeared from the american worker s Vocab ulary at least As a term of aver Sion.

President message on Eisenhower s special labor Law revision is supposed to be in final draft form some time in late september. Sen. H. Alexander Smith of new Jersey chairman of the Senate labor com Mittee reported As he emerged rom a White House conference just Lefore Congress adjourned. Whether the president s message will be kept on ice for a possible special session of Congress later in the fall or whether it will be held for nest january has apparently not been decided. The Early draft of the president s labor policy statement which leaked out a month ago had to be called Back in a hurry for further revision. Listing some 15 proposed changes in the Taft Hartley labor Law it still did not go far enough to suit the labor Union leaders. But it scared the u. 6. Chamber of Commerce because it made too Many conces Sions to the unions. President Eisenhower is. Of course. On something of a spot with regard also both the Al and Cio no to labor Law revision. He promised operate their own network radio t during his Campaign for election programs for the first time in his tory. For some time the Al has sponsored Frank Edwards a fair minded Liberal commentator while the Cio is now beginning a net work program with John Vander Cook. Furthermore some labor leaders stung by the one sided treatment Given their views by certain news in one newspaper cities Are discussing the establishment of a daily newspaper with a National circulation Home what along tic links of the Chris Ian science Monitor on Point no.

Management want he Law let alone or else made even tougher. Caught Between these two orces Congress usually comes up with a Compromise which pleases nobody. To get around this difficulty Cyrus s. Chang former head of the conciliation service and one of the smartest labor relations men in the country has been advocating an in dependent commission be allowed to try its hand at a Complete overhaul of All labor Laws. As a suggestion the commission might have three senators three representatives and six outsiders appointed by the president. Mem Bers of both the labor unions and the National association of manufacturers would be kept off commission its nongovernmental members would represent Only the general Public. Employees and employers might scream their Heads off that this was legislation without representation. But the fact that it was the spokesmen for these two groups who upset president Eisenhower s conference earlier this year is cited As evidence that they have no place on a commission to study Complete revision of the labor Laws.
