LaFollette Bill
Can Stop Laho War . . .
NCREASED anti-labor sentiment ac-
tivated by war brought the recent
LaFollette-Thomas bill, outlawing "oppressive
labor practices," to the floor of the Senate.
Pressure on labor was partially eliminated by
the Wagner Act. but there were still loopholes
permitting continLuation of untair labor prac-
tice. The new bill proposes criminal penalties
for labor-baiting employers.
Teeth for the NLRA in the form of criminal
penalties for nine practices are provided:
1.The use of labor spies.
2. Use of strikebreakers.

WASHINGTON -Deadliest testimony against
the Vinson-Smith bill to repeal the 40-hour week
did not come from WPB Chief Donald Nelson
or labor leaders Bill Green and Phil Murray,
though the trio got the headlines. It came from
one of the most militant advocates of the meas-
He was Mervyn K. Hart, head of the New
York State Economic Council, who appeared as
a witness for the legislation. But his testimony
quickly turned into a boomerang when Repre-
sentative Mike Bradley of Pennsylvania started
grilling Hart about his background.
Among other things. Hart admitted:
(1) That he had been an active foe of the
Lend-Lease program; (2) that he had been a
member of the America First Committee; (3)
that he attended the anti-Roosevelt rally in
Madison Square Garden, at which Fritz Kuhn
and other Bundists were present; and (4) that
his organization advocated disfranchising relief
While admitting that his organization had
"participated" in the New York meeting, Hart
vehemently denied any relations with the Bund.
"Fritz Kuhn wasn't invited," Hart declared.
"He just happened to show up."
"Has your organization ever advocated dis-
franchising WPA workers and other people on
relief?" asked Bradley.
"Yes, we believe that such people shouldn't
have the right to vote."
There were two very red faces in the commit-
tee room when Hart concluded his damaging
testimony. They belonged to Representatives
Carl Vinson of Georgia and Howard Smith of
Virginia. co-authors of the repeal bill.
Federal Housing Commissioner Abner Fer-
guson prepared a speech for delivery before
the American Bankers Association in New York
City and in accordance with regulations sub-
rnitted the manscript to the Office of Facts
and Figures for approval.
The speech came back with a note from Cap-
tain Robert Kintner noting an "inaccuracy" on
page six.,
In the most formal and restrained language,
Ferguson replied to this effect: "Dear Captain
Kintner: I have taken note of the 'inaccuracy'
contained in my prepared address, but I desire
respectfully to call your attention to the fact
that this passage was taken from the 'Report
to the Nation,' prepared and issued by the Of-

Joseph Fanelli is t .brilliant young lawyer
who is Chairman of the Board of Immigration
Appeals. His mother, Mrs. Mary Fanelli, came
to the United States .from Bai, Italy, in 1905.
She has raised eight children in America, but
has never become a citizen herself, because she
couldn't pass the educational tests. 1
But in the early days, she scrubbed the floors
in New York office buildings so that her chil-
dren might be educated. Appreciating deeply
the opportunities of America, she sent her boy
Joe to Dartmouth, and then to Harvard Law
His brilliance was recognized. Now he presides
over immigration matters in the Justice Depart-
Every year, Mrs. Fanelli comes to Washington
to see Joe. She comes on his name day - Saint
Joesph's Day, March 19.
But this year she didn't come. Joe wondered
what was wrong. Next day, however, she ap-
peared, overjoyed to see him, but still upset about
what had happened.
"Dat District Attorney," cried Mrs. Fanelli,

"he don' latta me come see my Joe! I tall heem
my boy Joe cesa beeg man in Washington. But
hl don' la m' come. W t'sa matter'?"
The mttelr was that Mrs. Fa:elli. 37 years a
resident of hIlle United States, and the mother
of an inortant official iii the Juslice Depart-
ment, was obliged to get a peniit from the Dis-
trict Attorney befoi'e she could leave the com-

Military InforniatillI
No announcement has been made, but the

have won their1 battle to be kept informed of the
progress of the war effort.

-But they were abirptly en(Ied after Pearl
Harbor. Chairman Andrew J. May of the House
Committee complained to Secretary Stimson,
and got the explanation that the War Depart-
ment wanted to avoid "leaks."
This drew such irate protests from both com-
mittees that Stimsoi has backed down and Ayres
has been aut horized to resume his reports on
"the inside lowdown."

® A Nauseating,
tow Repulsive Tale
THERE WAS ONCE a little girl named May
Fuddy. She had a laugh like a plumber's-
friend and used the words "repulsive" and "nau-
seating" to excess. So one day her mother said:
(quote) "I think that little May is becoming
absolutely nauseating., I shall send her away to
the finest school money can buy."
Money couldn't buy any fine schools-at least
not for little May-so Mrs. Fuddy sent May to
When most girls first arrive at Michigan they
are t-h-r-i-1-1-e-d. But not little May. She was
nauseated. After all, little May had been
The first day May was at Michigan, a near-
sighted freshman asked her for a date. "I'd be
absolutely nauseated," replied little May. She
later told the girls that he was repulsive. Little
did she know that this man would some day be
the greatest steeplejack the world would ever
A MONTH LATER little May was invited to a
sorority tea. "I hate sororities. I think
they'se absolutely repulsive, and all that sort of
guff," she told the sisters. "In fact they make
me gag." May Fuddy pledged to the sorority
the next day.
Someone asked her why she didn't try out for
The Daily. "Oh," she said, "amateur journalism
is repulsive. It nauseates me." She started
writing women's fashions for The Daily in'her
most repulsive manner.
Soon she was a senior and people pointed as
she passed on the street. "That's May Fuddy,"
they said, "she's eccentric." Everyone would
look and they'd shake their heads and say,
"isk, tsk."
Someone said why don't you try out for the
JGP, and she said "I hate the JGP, I think it's
repulsive, and besides I was in it last year when
I was a junior." So she wrote the play and
asked that they withhold her name because she
thought JGP's were nauseating.
M AY met another eccentric during her senior
year-a man who had never had a haircut,
and they became inseparable companions. One
could often see them strolling across campus
enveloped in their ivory tower. Every few min-
utes May would look up and say, "Repulsive,"
a'nd her companion, with a knowing look, would
whisper tenderly. "Nauseating."
Finally graduation day came near. Someone
asked May if she were going to attend the com-
mencement ceremonies. "Oh. no," she replied
"I think commencement is absolutely nauseating.
I gag to think of it." Little May, in her cap and
gown, was the star of the commencement cere-
After graduation little May went around look-
ing for a job. She went to several newspapers
and asked them for jobs on their nauseating,
repulsive rags. They said no. Finally she got
a job in an advertising agency.
One day May Fuddy's mother was reading a
perfume ad. It said: "Exotic as a jungle flower
.. deep . . . passionate, irresistible, it will drive
men insane with desire."
Mrs. Fuddy looked up and said: "How posi-
tively repulsive."
May Fuddy had written that ad.
War Songs JiJ s Cn't
Seem To Cook W3ith (ts
T IS UNFORTUNATE that most of the recent
releases have to do with war, because war
songs are poor songs for the most part. For a
change we will start with the Hot Jazz section.
If you're not interested in Hot Jazz, skip the
next paragraph:

Jay McShann, a great Boogie Woogie man
with a great hand, i often overlooked by the
experts. His Decca recording this week, So You
Won't Jiumhp, displays some excellent pianisties.
Flipover side, One Woman's Man, is good blues
... Louis Jordan is really coming up on the list
of Jazz greats. Ills Decca T-Bone Blues is intro-
duced by the inellowest alto sax this reviewer
has heard in many moons. Reverse side is Pine-
top's Boogie Woogie. Speaking of Boogie, I re-
heard Zurke's Honky Tonk Train on a Decca
record yesterday and am convinced that next to
Meade "Lux" Lewis' it's the best.
Artie Shaw takes us back to the old days with
Just Kiddin' Around on a Victor platter. Some
great clarinet by Shaw, a fine trumpet chorus
by "Hot Lips" Page-the tune penned by trom-
bonist ?Iay Conill '.. Reverse side is a slow,
comimiercial, bri OK-ish, Sometimes I leel Like
a Motherless Child, with vocal by "Hot ls'.'.
. Stan Kenton las recorded some very comuer-
cial "swing" in his own nauseating manner for
Decca. His stiffness is only matched by his lack
of brilliance in Concerto for Doghouse and La-
ment Gitano . . . 'Tain't No Good, Calloway's
latest on OKeh Label, backed by I Want To
Rock-two more of Cab's commercials . .
DD pseudo-patriotic rot: Yankee Doodle Ain't
Doodlin' Now, slightly better-than-average
hymn of hate, by Dick ,Jur,'g('ns. Reverse side--
another war-i tarl- jerker, She'll Always R1inem-
her OKebh . .. Kate Smith gets real blood-
tlhiirsty in Iwr latest Cohunbia record, 'Ihis Time,
backed by The Marines' Ilyinu. Much better re-
cording is the one by Victor Military Band,
backed by The Caissons Go Rolling Along . . .
Two new Glenn Miller tunes that are slightly

Industrial warfare wich has been part of so
many labor disputes could be eliminated through
this law. Each of the trouble spots have been
covered by its broad provisions.
The criminal penalty provisions would finally
bring to justice the conspirators against labor
who have caused riots and refused to cooperate
with the NLRB. And now when labor is being
forced back by reactionary elements the bill is
needed to protect the gains it has won.
Senator LaFollette pointed out in the Senate
that the bill would be a powerful morale booster.
as well as an antidote against the indiistrial
poison of unfair practices.
In a broader sense the bill is a definite step
toward industrial democracy, toward alleviation
of labor's weak bargaining position. Its enact-
ment would mean not only stoppage of employer
anti-labor drives now, but l)ositive protection
after the war.

BENJAMIN M. ANDERSON, Prolesr of c1-
nomiCs at f lie University of California at Los
Angeles, strikingly stale Oil( way of looking at
the forty-hour week:
We have a situation where, by a law enacted
by the Congress of the United States, a situa-
tion is created which would be the equivalent
of a strike of one-sixth of our workers for a
50 percent increase in wages. In other words,
you can only get extra labor, say, from forty to
forty-eight hours p'er week, by paying a 50 per-
cent increase in wages, and industry cannot
pay it.
To pilt it in aijol her way, if the forty-hour
week were cctenced If) a forty-eight-hour week
- which by all standards of health is a reason-
able working week in m1(s1t iiultitriC, we coulCd
forthwith increase he available labor supply
at 'current wages by one-fifth, or 20 percent.
