Of CIO Policy
Portland To See
By MAX HALL
WASHINGTON - W) - The
Right and Left wings of the CIO
may clash openly-more openly
than ever before-at the CIO con-
vention which is about to start
in Portland, Oregon.
But the organization probably
won't split in two. The Left Wing,
which has been losing strength for
two years and suffered a heavy
blow in the election showing of
Henry Wallace, will likely get a
convention spanking but will stay
in the organization.
THAT IS THE opinion held by
many observers of CIO politics, as
of today. The picture could
The 51-man CgO executive
board starts sessions in Port-
land this coming Wednesday.
The CIO convention opens Mon-
day, Nov. 22.
The term "Right Wing" in the
CIO does not mean "Conserva-
tive." It simply means "actively

NOT ALL "Left Wingers" are

go along with Communist pro-
grams. They don't go in for at-
At least four aspects of the
ffLeft-vs.-Right warfare may be
taken before the CIO executive
board. The issues may be set-
tied behind closed doors, but at
least one of them may erupt in
the open convention for the na-
tion to see.
The four issues are as follows:
* * *
1. THE ISSUE of the New York
City CIO Council. This outfit, a
Left-Wing organization, has . been
formally accused of departing
from CIO policies. The executive
board will decide whether to
snatch the council's charter. And
-watch this-CIO rules provide
that the board's decision can be
appealed to the convention.
2. The issue of whether CIO
unions should be allowed to de-
part from CIO policies.
3. Charges of "Raiding." Sev-
eral Left-Wing union leaders
have accused Right - Wing
unions of raiding their mem-
4. The southern organizing
drive. Some CIO officials are say-
ing that some Left-Wing unions
greatly reduced their financial
support of the southern drive in
order to put more money into
Henry Wallace's campaign.

advanced students from the School
of Music will present a concert
which will include Andre Bloch's

bussy and Kohler's "Grando Quar-
tet" for four flutes.
DR. R. M. PATTERSON of the

after dinner tomorrow at Ander-
son House in the first of a series
of such talks.
"EVERY DAY we hear of the
Varsity, Jayvee, 150-pound and
freshmen squads' accomplish-
ments. Now we have the Williams
House 'Wonders,'" according to
M. K. Rasnick, chairman of the
Williams House Committee on
Athletic Publicity. "Led by Capt.
Robert Fancett, the 'Wonders' won
four games, lost none and no op-
ponent has scored against them."
Debate To Be
Seen on Video
Final preparations are being
completed for the first televised
debate ever originated in this area,
to be sponsored by the speech de-
partment and the Michigan High
School Forensic League.
Presented at 9:30 p.m. tomor-
row night over station WXYZ-TV,
HISTORIC DEBATE PROMISED:
UNIVERSITY BUILDING BURNS-Firemen pour waier on flames which destroyed the 55-year-old
Norwood, Hall at University of Kentucky in Lexington, Ky. Loss of the building and its contents,
including considerable laboratory equipment, was estimated at approximately $200,000. Origin of
the fire was undetermined.

the new Congress members will be
asked to decide whether this na-
tion should go to war for a friend
the instant that friend is attacked.
Debate promises to be historic.
Never before has this nation been
willing to say to another nation
"your safety is mine."

BUT NOW, faced with the
march of communism through
Middle Europe and the Far East,
top American leaders in both po-
litical parties, in the State Depart-
ment and in the National Defense
Agency have decided to ask Con-
gress to pledge aid to five Euro-
The five are Britain, France,
The Netherlands, Belgium and
Luxembourg - the so-called
"Western Union" nations. Those
nations have already pledged a
"one-for-all" military protec-
tion of each other.
The Europeans want Americans
and Canadians to say "when any
of us is attacked in the future, all
of us will gang up immediately."
Months ago both Washington and
Ottawa began to explore the idea.
American and Canadian military
men are sitting in on planning ses-
sions of the five European na-
BOTH STATE Department men
and military men have told this
reporter that nothing is clear in
Washington at this point except
that they believe such a pledge
would be good for this reason: we
could make war so hard to wage as
to either delay a potential enemy
for a long time or stop another
world war in its tracks.
Some months ago State Depart-
ment advisers told the Western
Union nations to do two things:
(1) Work out what they could
do among themselves to put up a
(2) Figure out what help they
would need from us and Canada.
The five nations' military lead-
ers have (1) decided to give uni-
form training to their troops, air
and navy men, (2) named a sin-
gle commander, British Field Mar-
shall Bernard L. Montgomery, (3)
begun to plan a joint defense pol-
icy, (4) listed the supplies they
can make themselves and what
they would need from us.
THAT shopping list will be pre-
sented to the new Congress.
Washington experts are uncer-
tain now the exact shape any new
American move should take on
the law books. Senator Arthur H.
Vandenberg, the Republican lead-
tr on foreign policy, has already
said the pledge should be made in
a treaty, which the Senate would
have to ratify.

Decide if U.S. Will Fight for Its Friends

A recent wave of food poisonings

many sick but enthusiastic schol-
