P ROSPECTS for a truce in the long
. and destructive civil war of Amer-
ican labor have been brightened by the agree-
ment of the American Federation of Labor and
the Committee for Industrial Organization to
hold a conference late this month in an effort
to reach a working peace agreement. There
is a strong inclination to be skeptical of the
outcome of a discussion which must take place
under as severe handicaps as this one will, but
arbitration has proved so successful in the more
orthodox type of labor disputes that labor sym-
pathizers see no reason for discounting in
advance its chances to end the inter-union
The entire question of the success or failure
of the meeting hinges upon the sincerity of
the leaders of the two groups. The differences
existing between them are certainly not impor-
tant enough to warrant a continued split in the
labor movement whose revitalization during the
past two years has otherwise been so promising.
The AFL has virtually abandoned its exclusively-
craft-union outlook in the face of the tremendous
success of the CIO's campaign in the field of
previously unorganized labor. Certainly there is
not the slightest chance that the steel and auto
workers will ever abandon the industrial union
idea in favor of the narrow horizontal organiza-
tion so patently unsuited to them. At the same
time, the CIO must admit, as indeed it always
has, that specialized labor, carpenters, painters
and other skilled workers, can only be organized
on a craft basis. There is no reason for be-
lieving, however, that the two forms of organiza-
tion cannot continue to, function side by side;
in fact, it must be apparent that they have no
other choice. Most labor observers agree that
there is one fundamental problem which must
be solved by the conferees:
Are the present controllers of AFL policy
ready and willing to permit the granting of "un-
restricted" industrial union charters to organ-
ized workers in the basic and mass production
At San Francisco three years ago this was
agreed to by the dominant group of craft unions.
The fipst charter to a mass-production union
issued during the year-the auto workers union
-was awarded, according to the charges made
at Atlantic City the following year by John L.
Lewis, with the reservation that the craft groups
in that industry were to be permitted to have
their own unions.
Industrial unionists claimed this reservation
nullified the promise made at San Francisco
and the dispute between the two factions de-
veloped into a break from which emerged the
Committee for Industrial Organization.
At Washington the delegates from the CIO
will undoubtedly demand adherence to the reso-
lution adopted at San Francisco three years ago.
Upon the willingness of the AFL to grant these
terms rests the possibility of ending the ludic-
rous existence of dual unionism, which has not
only made collective bargaining difficult but has
also resulted in confusing the public, thus les-
sening the prestige and influence of the move-
From the beginning, the rift has been marked
clearly they are the domestic business of the two
organizations themselves. As long as each is
satisfied with its own particular leaders, there
is little reason for the other to attempt to inter-
In the meantime, the possibility of aligning
the two great units in a common front against
the common enemy, the unfair and unscrupulous
employer, should certainly outweigh all consid-
erations of personal feeling and jealousy. To-
gether the AFL and CIO can unite more than
7,000,000 American workers, with greatly en-
hanced prospects for continuing success in the
organization of the unemployed in both the
craft and industrial fields. There is every
reason for sympathizers with the entire labor
movement to hope for an2honest effort on
the part of the October 25th conference to
settle differences and bury the hatchet which has
done, and will otherwise continue to do, so much
harm to the common interests of all American
To the Editor:
Grave suspicions might be aroused by the
article in Tuesday's Daily titled: "Young Com-
munist League Comes Into Open With Meeting
Today." For the article goes on to say that
the League "has been functioning secretly for
more than five years."
As a member of that organization, may I say
that at no time have prospective members been
forced to display either false beard, stage bomb,
dirty neck, foreign accent, or bank deposits of
Stalin's gold. Strangeli enough also, the Young
Communist League has not met around a bon-
fire out in the Arboretum in the early hours
of the morning, nor has it met in some dank,
cobwebby cellar. Parenthetically I might add,
for the benefit of those who might be worried,
that we have no intention of blowing up the
Carillon (whatever the benefits of such an action
might be for the student body).
As a matter of fact, the League has met quite
openly for a number of years, in various halls
and homes around campus. Its purposes have
been mainly educational. A short time ago, its
members decided to bring the League actively
before the student body, partly for the purpose
of showing them the benefits of affiliation with
an organization which has, as members, hun-
dreds of thousands of intelligent and forward
looking young people in every country in the
The Youg Communist League will be educa-
tional, as before, but in the future it will have a
much broader scope. Its meetings will be con-
cerned with topics of vital importance to every
college student and to every young man and
woman. Everyone who is interested in the prob-
lem of war, fascism, relevant economics, and
the attainment of socialism, is sincerely invited
to attend all future meetings and take part in
-A Communist Student
Music In The Air
By WILLIAM J. LICHTENWANGER
One of the oldest pieces of bona fide organ
music in existence will be the first number played
this afternoon by Prof. Palmer Christian, in the
third of the weekly Twilight Organ Recitals.
This ancient work, a choral prelude on the choral
melody "Rejoice, Beloved Christians," was writ-
ten by Tucis, an Italian church composer of the
early sixteenth century.
Prof. Christian's second number is a Concerto
in D major of Antonio Vivaldi, the Venetian vio-
linist of great fame whose works, mostly con-
certos, were studied carefully for their mastery
of form by J. S. Bach. This Concerto is one of
the four which Bach transcribed for organ from
the composer's original settings for violin solo
with string orchestra accompaniment.
Another eighteenth century Italian, commonly
known as Padre Martini, was the composer of
the next selection. This is a Gavotte written
in the form of a canon, in which one voice leads
the way and a second voice follows it literally
at a certain interval. Padre Martini was one of
the best-known. scientific musicians of his time,
and was particularly adept at the sort of musical
parlor game known as the "puzzle canon."
A transcription for organ of a concerto writ-
ten originally for the eighteenth-century or-
chestra again finds a place on the program, in
the Largo movement from George Frederick
Handel's Twelfth Concerto Grosso. The pro-
gram's concluding work is the five-movement
Symphony for Organ No. 6 of the late Charles
Marie Widor, organist at St. Sulpice in Paris.
**i * *
When the score is 40 to 0 and there are two
minutes left in the final quarter, the losing
team usually "takes to the air" (all except Mich-
igan; we kick). From a look at current broad-
casting schedules, one could get the idea that the
country's symphony orchestras are on the short
end of some such score.
Not counting the concerts of the NBC Sym-
phony, which will get under way Saturday, No-
vember 13 (the time has again been changed,
this time from 9-10:30 to 10-11:30), there is a
small flock of weekly programs of legitimate
On this coming Saturday, at 9:30 to 10:30
p.m., (NBC Red), will be heard the second in a
short series of broadcasts by the Cleveland Sym-
phony, led by Artur Rodzinski and playing Si-
belius' tone poem "Pohjola's Daughter" and
Tschaikowsky's Fourth Symphony.
Then on Sunday afternoon will commence
Itfeeinr to e
It is a little difficult for me to take Jeremiah
T. Mahoney very seriously. I know that he used
to be a judge and that he is running in the May-
oralty campaign in New York. It has even
been said that the issue is far greater than a
local one, and that the fate
of the nation for weal or woe
rests upon his reception at
the hands of the electorate.
Jim Farley has indorsed him,
and some will point to his
success or failure as a fore-
shadowing of the progress of
the New Deal in the next two
or three years or even longer.
And even so, Jeremiah Ti-
tus Mahoney fails to loom as another Jefferson
or an Andrew Jackson. You see I happen to
know him only as Uncle Jerry. He is not, I hasten
to add in all fairness to his candidacy, related
to me in any way whatsoever, but he is kin
of some of my best friends.
They do not speak disparagingly of him, al-
though there seemed to be a sort of general
family surprise when the papers said that he
was running for something. Once upon a time,
man -years ago, he was famous as a track ath-
lete, but his specialty was leaping. For a time
he held the high jump record. But the assump-
tion among the members of his clan seemed
to be that all that kind of activity had been laid
away in lavendar, along with the silver mugs
upon the mantelpiece of his study.
Why, Uncle Jerry!
His kinsfolk were somewhat startled when he
came out of the chimney corner and announced
himself as an entry for the hop, skip and a jump.
Not that he will lack loyal suppeirt among the
Mahoneys and the Reynoldses. Quentin Rey-
nolds, his favorite nephew, is quick to come to
the defense of his famous kinsman when any-
body in the bar puts him on the pan. Smacking
the table with a vigorous fist he says, "Uncle
Jerry is a good old skate," and that ends the
To be sure, Mr. Reynolds, cannot pretend to be
wholly neutral in a discussion of the burning is-
sues of the local Armageddon. It seems that he
expects to get a low license plate if the Judge
comes home in triumph. He has even promised
to procure for me a nickel-plated badge which
will pass me through the fire lines in the event
of a Mahoney victory.
I won't sell out. Though my stand may create
internal ructions and impair an old friendship,
I refuse to accept Uncle Jerry as a knight in
shining armor. I think he is a stuffed shirt.
The Hand Has Lost Its Cunning
It was Father William, was it not, who was
rebuked for trying to balance eels on the end
of his nose at his age? I feel the same way
when Uncle Jerry comes out of retirement and
proceeds to juggle red herrings. I wouldn't care
much about the trick even it it were good, but
Jeremiah Titus Mahoney is dropping the salt
fish all over the stage. I think he ought to go
back to his high jumping.
Possibly one should not be too severe in the
judgment of politicians. A drowning man will
clutch at a straw, and in his extremity Uncle
Jerry may eventually be forgiven for- grabbing
with both hands at an extremely dead flounder.
The only danger is that somebody might take
Does Jeremiah Titus Mahoney really intend
to suggest that he would send the police out
to club the hed off every worker who dared
to raise a peep"against unjust conditions? Don't
be silly, Uncle Jerry. Be your age and be your-
self and quit playing with matches.
On The Level
Tonight the Interfraternity Council Pledge
Banquet will be held at the Union, and food,
drink and the glories of fraternity life will be
doled out in huge portions to all the new pledges.
If the affair went off as it did last year, it will
accomplish at least one thing. The pledges will
be glad to eat at their respective fraternity
houses for the rest of the year.

Last year's after dinner speaker talked on
the evolution of man from the fish stage
on through till the time man was sucker
enough to think of fraternities.

The only trouble was the fact that he didn't
quite get around to talking about fraternities.
But he touched everything else except his watch
to see what time it was.

By the time he had finished talking, all the
libraries were closed and there was only time
to order one beer at the P-Bell.
