a story recently to the ef feet that members of the AFL CIO are farther apart than th hyphen between them would in dicate Craft unions on the AFL side of the hyphen were reported to be feuding with industrial un ions on the CIO side just as they did before the merger of the two big labor federations There seems to be some ques tion as to whether the hyphen now is holding them together or keeping them apart Technically of course the AFLCIO is not a hyphenated organization at all When the two groups joinedforces six Phone marathon ends CHAMPAIGN III UPI Yackety yackety five full days of it all

men without simultaneous attack against the leaders of gambling rings Hultman said the federalstate cooperation on the gambling crackdown is a part of a pro gram for closer exchange of in formation between Kennedy anc attorneys general in all the states N ews in a nutshell FROM OUR WIRE SERVICES years they ampersand But whether ed or the member unions have con tinued to get involved in juris dictional disputes hinging on which should do what job The resolution of these con flicts is a delicate task as can be seen in a case which recent ly came before the Presidents Missile Sites Labor Commis sion The question was whether the installation of underground cable at a missile site should be done by the International Union o Operating Engineers or by the International Brotherhood o Electrical Workers You can immediately spot th bone of contention Cable insta latioir implies electrical work but underground cable layin requires trench digging whic is in the baliwick of the eng neers In my opinion the way tha the commission handled thi case stands as a model of ba anced labor jurisprudence o to use a better known term hairsplitting Here is what the commission donning the mantle of Solomon decreed 1 Tractors used to clear the right of way and to pull digging machinery would be operated by the engineers 2 Machines used to feed the cable into the trench also would he operated by the engineers 3 But tractors used as addi tional power to pull the cable laying machinery would be op erated by the electricians 4 On the other hand the equipment used to handle the cable reels would be operated by the electricians 5 Should nonetheless the cable reels be carried by tract ors the tractors would be oper ated by the engineers 6 Otherwise should the cable reels be carried by trucks the trucks would be operated by the electricians 7 Moreover the electricians would operate the frames used to handle cable reels carried by either truck or tractor 8 Notwithstanding that the equipment used to push din back into the ditch would be operated by the engineers Now where were we FIREMEN KILLED DAYTON Ohio UPI Twc firemen were killed in a fir which destroyed a threestory annex
