Lindy Silent On

A. Lindbergh, silent on bitter charges
made against him by a group of
prominent Soviet Russian aviators,
arrived today by plane to attend the
annual meeting of the Lilienthal So-
ciety for Aerial Research.
The American Airman declined to
comment on the Soviet fliers' accusa-
tion that he belittled the Russian air-
force and thus encouraged Anglo-
French capitulation to Adolf Hitler's
demands for Czechoslovak territory.
The 11 Russian airmen charged
that Lindbergh stated before guests

for German occupation of Sudeten-

Offer By CIO Chieftain
Rouses Anger Of AFL
President And Leaders
UAW Head Speaks
With Harry Bennett
(By Associated Press)
John L. Lewis dramatically offered
yesterday to step down from the
chairmanship of the CIO-provided
his arch enemy, William Green, would
resign from the AFL presidency. But
hopes for peace between labor's
struggling factions disappeared when
Green angrily answered "It is obvious
that even if Lewis resigned as CIO
chairman he would still remain its
Meanwhile, beliefs that another
chapter in the battle between indus-
try and labor would reach a happier
end were aroused when Henry Ford
briefly conferred with UAW-Pres-
dent Homer Martin.
The Lewis offer, made today at a
press conference, seemed to have in-
creased the bitterness which A. F. of
L. leaders feel toward him.
"I doubt his sincerity," was the
terse comment of Arthur 0. Whar-
ton, an A. F. L. vice president.
Whitney Sees Peace
However, A. F. Whitney, who, as
president of the Independent Broth-
erhood of Railroad Trainmen, i* a
non-combatant in labor's civil war,
predicted the war would end within
a year because the "interest of labor
and the public" demand it.
In connection with Lewis' state-
ment, it was recalled here that he is
President of the United Mine Workers,
a powerful union in the CIO. Even if
he resigned from the Chairmanship
of the CIO, he might still have great
influence in it through his miners
If there was anything of a "tongue-
in-cheek" nature about his offer, I
was not apparent, however, in hIs
manner when he made it to news-
men he had called to his office.
Green, whose future as ead of the
Federation rests with the organiza-
tion's 5,000,000 members when as an
unopposed candidate, he goes up for
re-election Friday, termed Lewis' of-
fer "an attempted fraud on the pub-
lic." "The Chairman of the C.I.O. as
everyone knows, is the dictator of
the C.I.O. He has not once even con-
sulted the membership of the C.I.O.
during his regime.
Offers To Resign
"Now he offers to resign if I will.
"Well, the World Series is over, but
the chairman of the C.I.O. is still
making grandstand plays. To anyone
familiar with the labor situation, it
is obvious that even if he resigned
as Chairman of the C.I.O. he would
still remain its dictator behind the
scenes. Because he would remain as
President and dictator of the United
Mine Workers of America, the union
which is the financial angel of the
C.LO. and whose funds are being wan-
tonly wasted in a vain effort to keep
the C.O. alive."
Labor problems were not discussed,
when Ford and Martin met, but af-
terwards Martin lunched and talked
with Harry Bennett, Ford personnel
director, about the Union's attempt to
obtain a 32-hour work week in the
automotive industry during periods of
At the same time other leaders of
the United Automobile Workers were
discussing the shortened week with
officials of the industry's "big three."
No conclusions were reached in any
of the conversations.

looking girls on this

reason people say

probably that every

main thing that
