Lewis, Green
Eye Election
CIO Convention To Seek
Coalition Between Labor
And Democratic Party
Non-Partisan League
Wins 83, Loses 78
he eve of the first constitutionalI
convention for CIO industrial union-i
sm, CIO Leader John L. Lewis sug-
gested today "concerted action
among the liberal forces" and re-
newed support for the New Deal in
the wake .of Republican gains in the1
November election'.
Lewis' remarks, covering in broadt
terms questions of Labor's role inr
politics and government and the out-1
look for Labor peace, were regarded
in some sources as indicating the po-
litical liberalism CIO Unions will
adopt in convention next week as
the vehicle for their future activities.
At a press conference in conven-t
tion headquarters, Lewis said in dis-
cussing last Tuesday's balloting that
the Democratic party organization1
needed house cleaning in some quar-1
ters and that if there was to be ae
coalition between the Democrats and
Labor "certainly there must be an in-E
creased understanding as to policy
and administration."t
The AFL had endorsed some Re-
publicans and some Democrats. Some-!
times it backed the same man as
the CIO, as in the case of Sen. Rob-
ert Wagner of New York. It suffered
few defeats.
The CIO lost in such strategic
tates as Pennsylvania (where AFL

Keller To Tell
Of War Thrills
Spanish Veteran To Show
Movies OfBrigade
Fred Keller, American volunteer
whose exploits in the Spanish war
were described in a 6,000 word New
York Times dispatch, will relate his
experiences at a meeting to be held,
at 8 p.m. tomorrow in the Union Ball-
room under the auspices of the Pro-
gressive Club.
This meeting, which is being held in
behalf of the Abraham Lincoln Brig-
ade, composed of American volunteers
to Spain, will also feature Canute
Franksen, former president of the
Detroit division of the National Negro
Congress. Both he and Keller have
recently returned to this country after
fighting with the Loyalist Army.
"American Lafayettes," a 30-minute
film, describing the civilian and mili-
tary activities of the Lincoln Brigade,
will also be shown at the meeting.
Keller, as political commisar of the
Lincoln Brigade, saw frontline ser-
vice for over a year, and participated
in the Belchite and Brunete cam-

Social Forces
Won' tChange,
Declares Fuller
New State Administration
Will Continue Work
Oni Relief Issues
The social forces at work for pro-
gressive legislation will not be im-
peded by the change of administra
tion in the state, Prof. Richard Fuller
of the sociology department said yes-
Theyimmediate handling of social
problems will undoubtedly differ and
it may lean toward the conservative
side, but social legislation can not
stop, he emphasized.
The most important point that will
come up before the new strongly Re-
publican legislature wlil be a welfare
reorganization bill, similar to the act
that was killed in referendum at the
recent elections. Governor-elect-Fitz-
gerald, who originally appointed the
committee to study welfare reorgani-
zation did not support it during the
campaign, but he will probably insti-
gate a bill similar to the one that
was defeated at the next session of
the legislature, Professor Fuller point-
ed out.
The third important piece of social
legislation on the agenda of the new
legislature will be the matter of
economy. The need for economizing
was an element in the defeat of Gov-
ernor Murphy, Professor Fuller said,
and the people will be watching for
the new set-up to take steps toward

The "last chance" was seen in re-

Minister Paul Reynaud for radio

tomorrow in the official journal.
These decrees, Daladier declared,
were the strongest that could be
drawn without violating "traditional"
methods of government. They call for
sacrifices in work and money from
all the people. President Albert Le-
Brun spoke in similar vein.
The Premier, addressing a large
delegation of war veterans assembled
with their 20-year-old battle flags in
the courtyard of the war ministry,
said it was now or never if they
wanted democratic France to regain
