Seat At Convention
DENVER, Colo., Oct. 12.-(P)-The
American Federation of Labor late
today rejected a Committee for In-
dustrial Organization peace confer-
ence proposal after refusing to recog-
nize a CIO official as a convention
William Green, A.F. of L. president,
asserting he spoke "officially" and, he
assumed, for the executive council,
announced the Federation's refusal
of the CIO proposal.
Shortly before, the convention re-
fused to seat Charles P. Howard, CIO
secretary as a delegate. Howard,
president of the International Typo-
graphical Union, came to the con-
vention as a delegate from that union.
Green accused the John L. Lewis
unions of "insincerity" and bad faith1
in suggesting that each side in la-
bor's big civil war send 100 men to a
After reading the CIO telegram
proposing the conference, Green dic-
tated the following statement to re-
"It bears all the evidence of in-
sincerity and of being just another
CIO document for CIO consumption.
"It does not impress me as being
submitted in good faith.
"We have a standing committee of1
three members waiting to meet a like1
committee from the CIO. Their pro-
posal is for a committee of 100 mem-
bers from each side.
"We stand on our original pro-
posal because we believe it is prac-
"We make no stipulations or con-
ditions for a meeting. Their proposal
sets up stipulations and conditions
which must be met before a meeting
could be held.
"Meantime, our door stands open
with the assurance that any unit of
the CIO wishing to return may do so
without stipulationsror conditions."
Green said no reply would be sent
to the CIO before the executive coun-
cil considered the CIO message.

University announced the resignation
today of Father Thomas R. Jones as
a result of "remarksn made" at a stu-

all game last Saturday.
While a group of students walked
off the campus in protest of the resig-
nation, Father Callahan said:
"Father Jones feels that the re-
marks made regarding Pitt's athletic
squad, while unintentional, and made'
in the heat of a pep rally, had in-
advertently placed Duquesne Univer-
sity in an unfavorale light, and that
his resignation may clarify the situ-
Pittsurgh newspapers said the phil-
osophy professor had told the stu-
dents' rally that Pitt players "play
for their weekly pay checks.'
Father Jones said he could not re-
call making the stattement but that if
he did "I certainly regret it."
Many former students of the pro-
fessor immediately circulated a peti-
tion seeking his reinstatement. j

WASHINGTON, Oct. 12.-(P)--
President Roosevelt called a special
session of Congress today to consider
legislation which he said would stab-
ilize the income of the farmer and
increase the income of the lower-paid
employes of American industry.
To these tasks he added:
1. Land utilization legislation -
the spreading of the TVA idea to oth-
er sections of the country.
2. Reorganization of the executive
branch of the government.
3. (Tentatively) anti - monopoly
"I shall ask this special session to
consider immediately,' the President
said in one of his fireside chats by
radio tonight, "certain important leg-
islation which my recent trip through
the nation convinces me the Ameri-
can people immediately need.
"This does not mean that other
legislation, to whih I am not refer-
ring tonight, is not important for our
national well-being. But, other leg-
islation can be more readily discussed
at the regular session."
Congress will convene in special
session Nov. 15 instead of waiting
until the regular session in January.
In his radio speech the President
declared those who oppose calling
Congress into session are fearful of
letting democracy operate, and re-
peated previous asurances that the
administration is concerned not with
abolishing property but increasing
the number of property owners.
In addition, he referred again to
foreign affairs, with a statement that
America must "actively" seek peceI
and that she is doing so by participat-
ing in the forthcoming international
conference on the situation resulting
from Japans undeclared war in China.
"The kind of prosperity we want,"
he said, "is the sound and permanent
kind, which is not built up temporar-
ily at the expense of any section or
any group. And the kind of peace we
want is the sound and permanent
kind, which is built on the cooperative
search for .peace by all the nations
which want peace."
