American Federation Of

Labor Votesj

Approval of Action -in China .
And Central America
(By Associated Press)
LOS ANGELES, Oct. 12-The Amer-
ican Federation of Labor today frown-
ed on an attempt to interfere in the
government's foreign policy in Latin
America and China and recorded its
unanimous approval of the Monroe
"Concerning the general subject of
relations with South America, the
,committee is firmly convinced that a
proper adherence to the Monroe Doc-
trine is necessary for the best inter-
ests of the people of both Central and
South America,"' the committee re-
port said.
After affirming the Monroe Doc-
trine, the report continued: "It may
be that the Nicaraguan situation in
Central America was considered suf-
ficient by authors .of the resolution
to base the general charge with ref-
erence to the South American re-
publics. The committee believes it
proper to point out that President
Green (William Green of the federa-
tion) acting as president of the Amer-
ican Federation of Labor and presi-
dent of the Pan-American Federation
of Labor, has already taken the Nica-
raguan situation up with thle United
States government in an effort to be
belpful to the Nicaraguan people. That
however, is a subject which is before
another committee which will doubt-
less report fully concerning it."
Referring to the resolution's criti-
cism of the United States "sending
warships and troops to China," the
report said: "As to China,, the Chinese
problem in its present aspect is a'
result of class interferences and in-
terventions on, the part of the for-
eign governments in the internal af-
fairs of China. In that respect our
government "has committed error. AI
mere withdrawal would 'simply result
in giving certain other nations in-
volved, an opportunity, if they are so
inclined, to use so-called American in-
terests in China to further embroil
our government. President Green-
and the executive goverftment are, we
understand, giving earnest thought{
and study to the problem and to -what#
procedure is most likely to enable the
United States further to prevent er-
rors with reference to China."
