An agreement to scrap a House. provision which would have exclud- ed food processors from collective bargaining rights was the last action by the conferees before re- turning the measure to the House ,ind Senate for further action. Senator Robert Taft told reporters the committee decided to remove the controversial section from the final draft and leave the matter to interpretation by the Na- tional Labor Relations board. Tills means it continues a matter of dispute so far as the X.L.R.B. and the courts arc concerned. Tnft reported the compromise bill was approved by seven of the tea conferees. The final draft represents Impor- tant concessions to the Senate by House conferees, who agreed to abandon a near-blanket ban on in- dustry-wide collective bargaining and a provision authorizing prtvats employers to seek injunctions against some strikes and boycotts. The final draft goes to the House and Senate for ratification, then to the White House for Mr. Truman's decision. Congress probably will not act until early next week. Here are the principal provision! of the compromise labor bUL The closed shop is outlawed. The union shop Is permitted only when a majority of workers vote for it. The government can obtain 80- day Injunctions against national emergency strikes. The three-member national labor relations board gets two more mem- bers. Judicial and prosecuting functions are separated, with the latter assigned to the general coun- sel. Jurisdictional strikes and second- ary boycotts are outlawed. So union-controlled health and wel- fare funds established since Jan- uary I. 1946. A new federal mediation agcncr Is set up. Unions arc made liable for unfair labor practices and subject to suit for violation of contract. They also can be sued for damages resulting from Jurisdictional strikes and sec- ondary boycotts." The involuntary checkoff system of collecting union dues is banned. A union would lose its collective bargaining rights under the Wag- ner act )f any of its officers could "reasonably be regarded" as com- munists. Employers do not have to bargain collectively with foremen. The N.L.RJ3. can forbid unions to charge dues or initiation fees which It regards rts "excessive or dis- criminatory." Employers are assured freedom of speecli in dealing with their workers, provided their statements are neither threatening nor coercive.

Farm Budget Is Sent to Senate After Compromise on 28.7% Cut Republican congressional economy drive was still rolling along today, but It was beginning to develop some squeaks. By a slim six-vote margin, and only after a compromise, the G.O.P. leadership shoved an Agriculture department appropriation bill for 1948 through the House last night and over to the Senate. This brought to slightly over CIO 000.000 the claimed savings In the House drive to cut from the President's budget for the year starting July 1. With only five more 1948 supply bills to be handled, there were signs that the going may be tough If the goal is to be reached. The appropriations committee may have trouble keeping Repub- licans in line when it comes to cut- ting funds for veterans and rivers- harbors projects. Twelve of them Joined a solid Democratic front last night in a future effort to add for the school lunch program. 000 for the Rural Electrification ad- ministration's lending fund, and for soil conservation payments. The appropriations com- mittee had ordered all three reduc- tions. Euch move to make those In- creases failed by a roll-call count of 180 to 174, as Republican lead- ers exerted their best efforts to get their votes to the floor. 28.7 Per Cent Slash There was no nose-count on the compromise which restored to the bill In so-called section 32 funds. These are receipts from Import duties, used In the past to low budget requests. As it Ivad emerged from the appropriations committee It was or 32 per cent, below the asked by President Truman. After the voting. Democrats and farm state Republicans said thoy were confident the Senate would restore the House cuts.
