THE VOTING was 3,079,181 for
Reuther, and 2,613,103 for Hay-
wood, based on the CIO's claimed
membership of 5,692,284. Reuther
thus won by 466,078 votes.
The red-haired Reuther, per-
haps best known for his many
proposals for social change in
the United States, succeeds the
late Philip Murray who had
guided the CIO for a dozen years
before his sudden death Nov. 9.
Despite the bitter battle between
the opposing Reuther and Hay-
wood forces, both sides pledged
afterward to bury the hatchet and
work together in the future.
AFTER REUTHER was elected
CIO president, Haywood, amid

climax to the 26 tumultous days
that have ensued since the death
of Murray, Nov. 9.
FOR A TIME the battle between
the Reuther and Haywood forces
threatened to split the CIO per-
manently. Despite the hatchet
burying, some scars still remained,
particularly between Reuther and
David J. McDonald, head of the
United Steel Workers. It was Mc-
Donald, whose union is second in
size only to Reuther's UAW, who
spearheaded the Haywood fight.
He carried his opposition to
Reuther to the bitter end on the
convention floor, although he
knew several days ago that Hay-
wood did not have a chance.
From the opening day of the
convention Monday, the coming
showdown was uppermost in the
minds of the 700 delegates, to the
