PRESS LEASED Wgffli SERVICE MASON CITY IOWA FRIDAY OCTOBER 2 THIS PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO SECTTO1W SECTION ONE NO 308 Labor Fight Analyzed Differences Between Groups Based on Philosophies By CHARLES P STEWART PASHINGTON The na ture ol the split in labors ranks between horizon tal unionism led by P r e s i dent William Green of the A F of and vertical un ionism led by President John L Lewis of the United Mine Workers seems to me not to be fully understood even by the chief tains of the con flicting factions Probably this is a brash statement to be made by a mere bystander All the same if the opposing leaders do understand what they are quarreling about I dont think they explain it clearly Conflicting Philosophies The impression they give is that YANKIISCRUSHGWNTS 18TQ 4 Estimates Raised on Com Production LAZZERI HOMER IN 3RD BASES FULL OPENS 7 RUN RALLY tliey disagree policy on a question 01 The A F of Ls policy is one of craft unionism several entirely distinct crafts may be employed in a single on one job in deed They doubtless are mutually friendly but they are independent of each other except for their A F of L affiliation Lewis contention is that mass production has so scrambled trades that respective industries can better be organized in toto re gardless of craft lines This divergence of opinion to OP sure is on an issue of to be aigued but not viciously fought over The real split appears to me to involve a clash between conflicting labor the A F of L philosophy that the A F of L is interested coly in the welfare of highly skilled groups of workers and the Lewisonian philosophy that is labor Aristocracy of Labor That is to say A highly skilled craftsman sa isfied with his pay hours and working conditions may be as in different to common labors status as any greedy capitalist He will not be indifferent to the interests of his associated highly skilled crafts he will regard them as his brethren But unorganized promiscuous lEbor It is quite possible that he will bt as careless of it as a plutocrat The J W W was illustrative of this complaint The VVobblies were less bitter against capitalistic op pression than against the aris tocracy of Not on Altruist The purpose of that kind of a unionist is to take care of himself organization Which is all right but he isnt necessarily an altruist He may as an individual feel for the masses Or he may not He is just like anyone Some Exceptions There are exceptions Assistant Secretary Edward F McGrady called as a witness be fore a congressional investigating committee when an A F of L organizer was asked Youre speaking for organized labor answered Yes and inasmuch as unorganized labor is inarticulate Im trying to speak for unorgan ized labor I likewise knew an A F of L organizer of the name of Carroll who dispatched on a mission in the south completely forgot his original t4Sk because he was so outraged by conditions of common Negro labor on the river levees and returned to Washington to denounce them His story is embalmed in congressional reports it got no farther 5 EXPERTS SAY APPARENT YIELD SHOWS INCREASE Place 1936 U S Total at Bushels CHICAGO of 1936 United States corn production

bushels an increase of bushels over the average a month and bushels greater than the latest official forecast ot the government These figures considered practi cally final showed the marked crop

The average of the estimates spring wheat production was re duced to bushels or 4 below a month ago offi cial and unofficial estimates and below the 1930 crop and below the average of production for
