the 2 big labor organizations to sign such affidavits if any AFL or CIO unions are to make use of the NLRBs seryites Approximately 5000 cases are pending before the board Originally Sept 23 was set as a deadline when the board would begin dismissing cases if non communist affidavits had not been signed by that time Denham allowed each union 20 days from the receipt of notice that the affidavit was required The first such notices were mailed out September Z and therefore the first ones would have been due about September 23 The board and Denham said the extension of time announced Friday was granted at the re quest of several international and local unions During the intervening time both the AFL and CIO will hold naitonal conventions which may reach policy decisions on whether their officers should sign the affi davits The AFL top officers announced last week they were unable to conform with Denhams ruling that the top officers had to sign affidavits in order to make the 105 AFL unions and 43000 locals eligible to use NLRB machinery United States probably will call on Russia to say exactly what is meant by the charges of war mongering and to state whether Russia and the United States can basis for stopping all war propaganda including any of such in the Soviet press Whatever is the U S position in the steering committee it seemed unlikely that the issue would get on the agenda without opposition from some of the 14 committee nations The bitter Russian blast de livered in 8000 angry words by Deputy Foreign Minister Andrei Vishinsky virtually charged a conspiracy within the United States to make war on Russia The speech was described by ranking American delegates as so fantastic that It would de feat itself and be written off in this countryand elswhere in the noncommunist world as straight out Russian propaganda Secretary of State George C Marshall was being advised along this line by top jnembers of his delegation it was learned and while a final delegation decision as to the next American move was yet to be made it was authorita tively expected to call for the silent treatment for Vishinsky The Russian leader directed his unprecedentedblunderbuss attack against the whole range of American foreign policy includ ing r the Truman doctrine the Marshall economic recovery plan and continued atomic bomb pro duction took a quick crack at President Truman and specifical ly accused 9 prominent Ameri cans including John Foster Dulles of Marshalls delegation here of being warmongers try ing to start a war on Russia The reference to Mr Truman came when Vishinsky said the presidents recent speech at the interAmerican defense confer ence in Brazil emphasized Ameri can plans to maintain strong mili tary forces without mentioning American obligations under the United Nations to seek disarma ment The 9 Americans named by Vishinsky as examples of war mongers seeking to start a war on Russia were Dulles who was sitting
