CommitteeMayOK
Strike Control Bill
House Group To Compromise on Landis
Amendment, Fact-Finding Principle

7 to 7 tie vote in the committee
Thursday. He added that even if his
jroposal is not accepted he and his
supporters will go along with "any
reasonable compromise" in order to
4et floor action.
The legislation requested by Mr.
'ruman would establish fact finding
boards to make recommendations for
solution of major labor disputes. It
would give them power to subpoena
records and would ban strikes during
30-day period while they deliber-
ated.
Subpoena Power Out
Under tlie Landis amendment, the
iower of subpoena would be denied
he board and the section providing
or 30-day "cooling off" would be
liminated.
Rep. Hoffman (R-Mich) asserted
hat with these controversial sections
tricken from the bill it "will be ac-
eptable to supporters of both man-
gement and labor."
Some members said they would try
o get the power of subpoena merely
imited, instead of abolished.
Regardless of the version approved,
,cting chairman Randolph (D-WVa)
paid the group definitely would "take
inal action of some kind" on the is-
ue Tuesday. He said this is neces-
ary because "as tension mounts
hroughout the country there will
ollow insistent demands for drastic
1gislation and we must forestall un-
varranted action along those lines."

BROWNWOOD, Tex., Jan. 19--(P)
-With yells of approval an estimated
2,000 members of the 36th division,
in reunion here, adopted a resolution
today calling for a Congressional in-
vestigation of the Division's tragic
Rapido River engagement Jan. 20
and 21, 1944.
The resolution declared almost
2,900 casualties were suffered by
the unit in two crossings of the
treacherous Italian stream in the
vicinity of San Angelo.
Only two "noes' were heard
when a voice vote was called for.
The resolution was read by Carl
Phinney, Dallas attorney and former
transportation officer of the Division,
and seconded by Maj. Gen. Claude C.
Birkhead of San Antonio, former
commander of the group.
"Be it resolved," the resolution
concluded, "that the men of the
36th division Association petition
the Congress of the United States
to investigate the Rapido River
fiasco and take the necessary steps
to correct a militry system that will
permit an inefficient and inexpe-
rienced officer, such as General
Mark W. Clark, in a high command
to destroy the young manhood of
this country and to prevent future
soldiers being sacrificed wastefully
and uselessly."
Capt. A. F. Fisher of Wichita Falls,
only man to speak against the resolu-
tion, called it "The most absurd thing
I ever heard." He added that Gen-
eral Clark must have had his reasons
for ordering the Rapido crossings.
Birkhead, in seconding the mo-
tion for adoption, said: "With the

information General Clark had we
feel he was derelict in his duty when
he deliberately forced the crossing
of the Rapido River."
A War Department spokesman
said today that the Allied soldiers
who fell in the battle of the Rapido
River helped make successful the
landing on Italy's Anzio beach-
head in January, 1944.

The spokesman, designated to an-
swer reporters' questions about a de-
mand for a congressional investiga-
tion of the engagement, said one of
the purposes of the Rapido assault
was to keep German pressure off the
initial beach operations at Anzio.
The diversionary result was ob-
tained, the spokesman said, adding
that the men who fell in the three-
day battle "Did not die in vain."
