Thomas Elected UAW Vice-President
After Making Sudden Decision To Run
By The Associated Press
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J., March 28
--Walter P. Reuther took over lead-
ership of the CIO United Auto Work-
ers today and immediately walked
into a potential problem in union
The man he beat out for the presi-
dency in the union election yester-
day, incumbent R. J. Thomas, was
Coal Mines Will
Not Be Seized
WASHINGTON, March 28-(,')-
The Government has no plans for
seizing the coal mines in event of a
strike, President Truman said to-
To assure supplies for urgent uses,
however, the Government took over
control of the shipment and distribu-
tion of soft coal as of midnight to-
Meanwhile the labor department
sought to avert the nation-wide
strike of 400,000 soft coal miners
scheduled to begin at midnight Sun-
Assistant Secretary of Labor John
W. Gibson, who helped settle the
General Motors Corporation strife,
conferred for an hour with the bi-
tuminous coal operators. He had had
a similar meeting last night with
John L. Lewis.
At both meetings, Gibson said, he
reviewed the progress of negotia-
tions from the point of view of each
side. The meetings, he asserted, were
The President was asked at his
news conference whether he thought
there would be a coal strike.
Mr. Truman said he had no com-
ment, telling reporters that your
guess is as good as mine.
Reports reaching the producers
here were that some miners already
were starting on "vacation."

stance with a high differential quali-
ty (relative effect between normal
tissue and diseased tissue). It is this
differential quality which explains,
in part, why some forms of cancer
can be cured with X-ray or radium
while others cannot.
"By its very nature radioactivity is
destructive. If a substance is radio-
active it produces ionization-that
is a chemical change of atoms so
that they immediately begin reacting
upon each other in an abnormal fash-
ion. Therefore, it is hoped that a
radioactive element can be found
which will have an affinity for dis-
eased tissue as opposed to normal tis-
sue, greater than anything we now
elected to one of the UAW-CIO's two
posts of vice president.
Overnight Decision To Run
Thomas, making an overnight deci-
sion to run, returned to the union's
official family within less than 24
hours of his defeat by Reuther in
their bitterly fought campaign for
the union's 'top job.
Thus, their positions were reversed.
Reuther had been a vice-president
prior to his victory yesterday in the
UAW-CIO's hottest political battle of
its ten-year history.
Whether this would, mean more
clashes over policy between Reuther
and Thomas, who have had sharp
differences, was a subject for conjec-
ture. As a vice-president, Thomas
will sit on the international executive
governing body of the UAW-CIO.
When asked for comment, Reuther
Thomas Agreed To Cooperate
"Thomas has agreed to cooperate,"
he said. "The responsibility is his."
Reports said he had been urged by
friends to make the race to return to
high office in the auto union al-
though he had offers of other assign-
ments in the CI0.
Reuther and Thomas exchanged
pleasantries after today's election
just as they had the day before.

CHICAGO, March 28-P)-Gerald
L. K. Smith and his public relations
man, Don Lobeck of Detroit, were
convicted today of contempt of court
because of statements distributed to
reporters at the trial of Arthur W.
Terminiello on disorderly conduct
The statements, introduced in evi-
dence, declared the prosecution in
the Terminiello trial "has no leg to
stand on" and called it a "cold blood-
Smith, head of the America First
Party, and Lobeck were convicted of
contempt of municipal court by
Judge John V. McCormick.
At conclusion of the contempt trial
in the judge's chambers, at which
four news reporters were principal
witnesses called by city Prosecutor
A. A. Pantelis, Judge McCormick
"Mr. Smith and Lobeck are held
guilty. I intend to impose jail sen-
tences on both of them."
He then continued the contempt
case to April 3, telling Smith's attor-
ney, Maximilian St. George, he would
be given an opportunity to cite law in
the case. Smith and Lobeck were re-
leased on their lawyer's recognizance.
The court dismissed a contempt
citation against Fred Kister, Chica-
go writer and speaker at a Smith ral-
ly Feb. 7 which was accompanied by
a disturbance outside the building on
Chicago's west side.
Judge McCormick is presiding at a
jury trial of Terminiello, suspended
priest of Huntsville, Ala., on disorder-
ly conduct charges stemming from
that meeting. Smith and Kister are
to be tried later on disorderly conduct

on the development;

WASHINGTON, March 28-('P)-
Bill Mauldin, famed GI cartoonist,
said today that the army must "Get
rid of the theory that an officer
breathes special air and is a gentle-
man while the enlisted man is not."
The 24-year old cartoonist made
this statement before a board set up

Prof. James B. Griffin, of the an-

of the Museum of Anthropology, will
participate in the work.
The program will be sponsored by
the State Department's division of
by the War Department to study of-
ficer enlisted men relationships.
The meeting was closed to report-
ers but Mauldin explained his stand
later to newsmen.
Meantime, Secretary of the Navy
Forrestal acted to get some civilian
advice on Naval practices "disapprov-
ed by the public."
He announced the creation of a
committee of 40 or more civilians to
"Work with the Navy on its postwar
program." The names of the members
will be announced later.
The setup is different from the
board of former officers and enlist-
ed men headed by Lt. Gen. James H
Doolittle which is conducting the
hearing on complaints against the
Army' but its purpose apparently is
somewhat similar, at least in part.
Mauldin, in talking to reporters,
said service newspapers should be
run "For the soldier, and not for the
War Department." He said that in
this way soldiers could let off steam
and consequently improve their own
morale as well as the efficiency of
He gave this example of what he
was talking about:
"Obviously a soldier can't vote and
decide who should be his command-
ing officer, but if his officer is inef-
ficient, the soldier ought to be able to
call attention to it." He said they can
do this in an Army newspaper.
