Mount Pleasant News (Newspaper) - May 3, 1958, Mount Pleasant, Iowa
The it. Pleasant news partly Cloudy these Days i vo1-80-n<>-105 it. Pleasant. Iowa Sah Koay evening. May i. 1958 by George e. Sok oink y the labor Barons the labor Bill that Congress is bound to pass however weak. Will be annoying to the labor Barons who have made a business of the control of the work of men. Some labor leaders would prefer that labor be permitted to clean its own House without the intervention of Congress the courts or the administration thus far they have not succeeded in doing much in this direction because the labor Union leadership has. In Many industries attracted men to whom this work is not a professional Public service but a private service. Take for instance the Case of Raymond Cohen Boss of teamsters local 107 in Philadelphia who appeared before the Mcclelan committee to testify concerning a a favourable Quot agreement with the food fair stores Chain. Involved is the statement that the Union permits the food fair stores Chain As Many As 287 Quot free drops of Laden trailers a Day. While the Aap stores arc limited to not More than 50 a free drops a Day. Too a a free drop Quot is when the Driver detaches his tractor from the trailer while it is being unloaded in All stops in excess of the a free drops a the Driver stays on the premises drawing his hourly pay for the three to four hours required in unloading. This is enormously expensive Feather bedding. During this period the Driver does nothing but draw pay he could be using his tractor to haul another Load. Anybody who knows simple arithmetic can figure that the food fair stores Chain under such an agreement with the Union effected an enormous savings in costs not available to its competitors which is Good business and no reflection on food fair stores.

He on a need basis hut times the j also acknowledged that he receive nor l is urgent Raymond Cohen was called before the Senate labor rackets committee to explain this and other activities and took the fifth amendment about self incrimination. Particularly As regards questions As to his own finances. Meanwhile Pennsylvania a attorney general Thomas d Mcbride admitted before the same Senate committee that he had continued on the payroll of teamsters local 107 for two months after he was sworn into office and that he received a retainer of $1,250 for each he posted and accepted a Christmas gift of $500 three Days after he was named attorney general by the governor of the state of Pennsylvania. He volunteered this testimony. And great. It is interesting to note than one out of every 55 people in the United states Are contributing time to the cancer crusade in 1958. In Henry county alone 200 cancer crusade Church bulletins have been used by the various churches to promote the Campaign. The county goal is $4365 for 1958. May set school standards above tile Senate committee has accused Raymond Cohen and Joseph Grace president of the local of being Short. $491,000 of Union funds. Mcbride a testimony before the committee was that he never worked for Cohen but for the Union. Quot the Philadelphia inquirer Quot in if a commenting on this situation said j in 11 ii Idi ii Iti Quot it was a refreshing interlude in one sense yesterday when Pennsylvania a attorney general Mcbride voluntarily appeared before i the Mcclellan committee to resent and repel As we think he had every right to do the casual inclusion of his name in testimony the preceding Day As recipient a before he became attorney general of Legal fees As attorney for local 107. The Mcclellan committee would be Well advised to avoid such incidents involving unmerited by the Way smears of the answer of course is that when a committee investigates names come up and when they appear they must be investigated. Therefore no one ran Quot resent and repel that is in the record namely that Mcbride a name appeared on Union checks subsequent to his appointment As attorney general. There May be an excellent and valid explanation but the fact that a Man is an attorney general or any other kind of a Public functionary does not or ought not to safeguard him from investigation by a congressional committee seeking information about Union funds or any other matter concerning the state of the nation. Attorney general Mcbride knows this As Well As any other lawyer does and he would act As senator Mcclellan did were he in the senator s place. The fact that he appeared voluntarily is an acknowledgement of the right of Congress to obtain information.
