Green Orders
To Fight Lewis
Major Conference Called'
For Cincinnati May 18;
No Expulsion Planned
WASHINGTON, April 22.-(A})-
President William Green announced
tonight he was calling a major con-
ference of A.F. of L. leaders in Cin-
cinnati May 18 to arrange to fight
John L. Lewis in a membership drive.
National and international union
presidents affiliated with the Ameri-
can Federation of Labor will attend
the conference, Green said.
He denounced Lewis and his com-
mittee for industrial organization,
but indicated that he would not call
a special Federation convention to
expel him-as some labor observers
had expected.
Such a move, he contended, would
merely "add dignity" to a group of'
rebels. Lewis' action in setting up
the C.I.O. was "steeped in the cess-
pool of illegality and irresponsibility,"
Green declared.
Lewis set up the committee to bring
workers in each mass production in-
dustry into one big union. Craft
unionists in the A.F. of L. suspended
him and allied unions from member-
Green's statement tonight said that
failure to close the breach between
the C.I.O. and the A.F. of L., "Is to
be attributed not to the American
Federation of Labor but to those re-
sponsible for having set in motion a
group activity clothed in garments of
good faith but inspired by a mind and
a heart bent upon destruction of the
organized labor movement of Ameri-
"The underlying procedure of those
in control of the C.I.O. is to confuse
and divide the forces of labor and
assume arbitrary control."

During the day a total of three
thousands signatures were affixed to
three anti-war petitions to be sent
to Congressional committees and to
the President.
The 1,500 students assembled
braved a stiff wind in order to dem -
)nstrate for peace.
Prof. Maynard C.- Krueger of the
University of Chicago economics de-
partment declared to the meeting
that the peace movement must en-
list the support of labor and must
educate peace-advocates to "have
the guts to say 'no' to the war-
makers when it is no longer respect-
able to talk peace."
Approve Resolution
A resolution was approved by the
anti-war protestants stating, "We,
here assembled in protest against war
and militarism, do hereby resolve
that we are part of a nation-wide
movement of students dedicated to
work towards thle eradication of war
in the modern world; that we here
express our complete sympathy and

The peace movement in 1914,
stronger than ever before Professor
Krueger stated, melted at the sight
of war because very few people un-
derstood that economic considera
tions were inextricably tied up with
war. "You must continue to oppose
military and naval appropriations
and the use of America's armed and
economic forces for the subjugation
of colonials in an imperialistic race
that brings syphilis and not civiliza-
tion to colonials; you must oppose
nationalism and exaggerated patrio-
tism, if you want to keep the masses
from climbing aboard the militaristic
bandwagon when war is declared,"
he stated.
The three petitions, circulated
throughout the campus yesterday,
"We, the undersigned, consider the
Hill-Sheppard Bill, which embodies
the Industrial Mobilization Plan of

PHILADELPHIA, April 22.-(J)-
Admiral Richard E. Byrd recom-

the citizens of the country.

Prof. Riegel Holds Trade Unions
Needed For Employer Bargaining

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first of
three articles on trade associations and
labor, the public and industry.
Collective bargaining in many in-
dustries where small manufacturers
oppose strong unions can only be car-
ried on with any degree of equality
by business men organized in trade
associations, declared Prof. John W.
Riegel of the business administration
school, yesterday.
While the Wagner Labor Relations
Act may bring about this condition in
other industries it did not create it
for it has been present in some in-
dustries for many years, he con-
tinued. "The soft coal industry

each individual producer approach
the unions with anything like equal
bargaining power," he said.
Similar conditions, he stated, ob-
tain in many other industries of
which the building trade, the print-
ing and the wholesale clothing man-
ufacturers are examples.
Besides uniting its members, the
association should be the organiza-
tion to uncover and present the facts
upon which collective bargaining is
based and to serve as a clearing
house for information on labor dis-
putes, he said.
There is, however, a great deal
more to industrial relations which
