Eisenhower told his news conference that the measure passed by the Senate has very definite weaknesses. He said, he is very disap- pointed with it. The President said he be- lieves the House should write in amendments to (1) curb secondary boycotts, (2) out- aw blackmail picketing ..nd clarify the no-man's-iand area where the authority of the National Labor Relations Board and'that of the states is cloudy. EISENHOWER WAS asked if he feels it necessary to have such amendments in light of the "bill of rights" for labor that was voted into the Senate measure. Eisenhower replied that as it first was offered by Sen John McClellan he thought the bill-of-rights pro pbsal was a fine thing. But he said a compromise' which finally was adopted} was not a. real substitute for the'kind of thing that should have been done. THE SUBSTITUTE was sponsored by Sen.
