Ku Klux Kan
EXT TO A DEAD ONE, a unhappy Ku
1Klux Klansman is best.,
And the Kluxers haven't had much to
cheer about in the past few weeks. Despite
grand prizes offered to "members who get
new members" (including a copy of "The
Rising Sun," an anti-Catholic document
written by the Klan's former Imperial Wiz-
ard), Klan membership drives have been
conspicuously unsuccessful, according to
Stetson Kennedy, author of "Southern Ex-
posure," in an article in PM.
Kennedy writes "Saturday's disconso-
late party was just one more in a long
series of Klan flops. A fiery cross touched
off was a great disappointment, the
Grand Dragon reported. The cross was
100 feet long-but there were only 25
new Kluxers 'to initiate."
The party, which Kennedy attended dis-
guised as. a Kluxer-in-good-tanding, saw
one of the last cross-burnings for some time
to come. The Klan has been finding this
pastime expensive and inexpedient since
three members were arrested last month in
Knoxville, Tenn. for setting off six crosses
in front' of the police station, the city hall
and the county court house.
However, with all their setbacks, the Klan
may yet hope.
The withdrawal of the Negro Baptists
in the United States from the Baptist
World Alliance was threatened this week
after white delegates to the seventh con-
gress of the Alliance in Copenhagen,
Denmark, informed Copenhagen hotel-
keepers they did not wish to share ac-
commodations with the Negro delegates.
Astatement issued by Negro leaders in
this country demanded an apology from the
delegates who "attempted to impose their
views of segragation upon the Danish peo-
ple."
" And loyal Klan hearts lifted again this
week when a Jackson, N.C. jury freed seven
white men on charges of kidnaping and
breaking and entering a jail with intent to
kill a young Negro.
The freeing of the seven would-be lynch-
ers brought a quick condemnation from
North Carolina's governor R. Cregg Cherry
who claimed a miscarriage of justice and
said that the action of the grand jury "does
not close the case."
Meanwhile, however, there are seven pro-
spective Klan members on the loose.

THE PATTERN OF the future in the
whole labor scene may well be estab-
lished in the next few months. On the
one hand, the outcome of the current ne-
gotiations between the CIO's United Auto-
mobile Workers and the Ford Motor Com-
pany will become a standard of measure-
ment in post-Taft Hartley Act labor rela-
tions. On the other hand, a test of strength
of even more significance for the long term
future of American politics, may also be in
prospect. For it is possible that all-out, eye-
gouging, shiv-sticking political warfare
within the CIQ itself is in prospect.
The battle, if it comes about, will be be-
tween the CIO leadership, including Presi-
dent Philip Murray, and the CIO's Commu
nist-dominated minority. At present an un-
easy truce between these factions hardly
masks a dagger-and-bludgeon, poison-m-
the-soup struggle which goes on behind its
facade. But those who have the best means
of knowing what goes on in Philip Mur
ray's always honest but often vacillating
mind suspect that this truce may soon be
broken; indeed, that the process has already
begun. Such mind-readers have in the past
been forced to rely on the most inconclu-
sive signs and portents-Murray's sudden
emotional storm on the Communist 4ssue
before the automobile workers' board, a more
recent and more violent explosion before
INTRIGUE:
U.S. Seaman
By VICTOR RIESEL
I OFFER YOU TODAY a tale of intrigue
on the high seas, secret meeting in grimy
ports, "frame-up artists" at work and spe-
cial agents slipping quietly on and off ships
bound for far-flung oceas. There are no
secret maps of ancient treasure caches but
the prize of battle in this tale is huge none-
theless.
The prize is power over 90,000 American
seamen and their union. This outfit, in
turn, controls much of America's sea-borne
commerce at a moment when U.S. ship car-
goes keep Europe's non-Communist nations
literally from being peopled by walking skel-
etons.
Know first that every ship manned by
a CIO National Maritime Union crew to-
day is a floating ballot box. Men aboard
last week began to vote for delegates to
the union's sixth annual convention
scheduled for September.
The Communist Party, acting through its
special labor agents, is under orders to cap-
ture that convention under any circumstanc-
es, so it can control the union. Control of
the NMU would mean that any time the
Communist disapproved our foreign policy,
they could call a political strike and para-
lyze our shipping.
To capture the convention, the Commu-
nist Party must first capture the delega-
tions now being elected at sea. So the party
has stationed its best operators aboard shi!
to campaign and vote. About these special
Communist agents, union president Joe Cur-
ran, says:
"They are trained as speakers. They are
trained at confusion. They are trained it
lies and deceit. They are trained to smear
and slander. They are trained to stay at
meetings until all the regular members leave
the meeting tired. Then they pass their res-
olutions and motions. They will attempt to
capture our convention."
They're heavy with cash and flash a roll
before hitting a port. They're the first to
buy drinks and lead the way to every water-
front excitement and they have managed to
smuggle their new style-slick propaganda
aboard. One piece of this party literature,
now flooding NMU ships is gotten out like a
pocket-size mystery novel.
A trick cover makes it look like an-
other detective story and the seamen in
their idle hours have been picking up the
book. The front jacket reveals a fallen

picket with a huge two-handed sword in
his back. Across the sword, in big black
lettering, is the title, "Inside Job." Writ-
ten by Herb Tank, a professional Commu-
nist Party author, its chapter heads read
like something out of Ellery Queen: "The
Case of the Stolen Ballot Box; Racketeers,
Politicos and B-29 Bombers; The Deep
Six; South of the Border; Gangsterism
Unparalleled; The Enemy Is Cunning."
The pocket-size volume of course is over-
sized Communist propaganda not only
against the party's enemies inside the union
but against big business and capitalism as
well.
That's how the party operates at sea.
But it worries about the ports, too, because
on Monday, Aug. 25, the land-based union
members will elect "port delegates" to the
convention.
So recently the Communist Party held a
secret meeting in New Orleans. To a seamy
building there were summoned all the party
agents 'who, over the past years, have suq'-
ceeded in becoming NMU officials.
They discussed the New Orleans situation
-because in that city the anti-Communist
crowd controls the union, and the comrades
devised this strategy to discredit the non-
Communist leaders of New Orleans' seamen:'
Party agents would provike scores of "beefs"

the CIO executive board, and so on. But
now the mind readers can point to some -
thing more than hot words.
The official CIO newspaper, "The CIO
News," for a long time edited by slight,
professional Len De Caux, has rarely de-
viated from the straight Stalinist line.
Thus, when the British parliament voted
to free India, "The News" not only joined
"The Daily Worker" in implying that this
was mere British imperial trickery. The
editors also exhumed ancient photo-
graphs from the files, purporting to show
British soldiers savaging the Indian na-
tives. By odd coincidence, Murray had
just signed a cable to British Prime Min-
ister Clement Attlee congratulating hin
and the British people on their great and
historic act. When Murray saw the cur-
reni issue of his own organization's of-
ficial newspaper, he hit the roof. De
Caux, and two of his cohorts received
their walking papers. "The CIO News"
is now in other hands.
This was a major development in CIO
internal politics, since the organization's
newspaper is the main channel of official
CIO policy to the rank and file. It has,
moreover, been followed by other develop-
ments. Robert Lamb, personable secretary
of the CIO legislative committee, has re-
signed. The secretaryship of the legisla-
tive committee is another key spot, and
most of the non-CCommunist CIO leaders
consider Lamb's departure a victory for their
side. Finally, Emil Rieve, textile workers'
chief, has been given office space and an im-
portant policy-making position in CIO head-
quarters. Rieve's name follows only those
of David Dubinsky and Walter Reuther on
the Communists' extensive hate list, as he
is one of the most effective anti-Commu-
nist labor leaders.
For all these developments, final iespon-
sibility rests with Philip Murray. It is thus
little cause for wonder that careful studenti
of "The Daily Worker" have noted a cer-
tain falling off in that journal's tendency
to sing paeans of praised to "our great lead-
er, Philip Murray." To be sure, "The Work
er" has yet to attack Murray with exquisite
delicacy for which Andrei set the pattern
when he remarked of his compatriot, Vic-
tor Kravchenko, that "when a dog has no-
thing else to do, it will ofen lick its belly."
Yet such tributes, according to informed
labor circles, may quite possible be on the
way.
For in these circles there is somewhat
tentative tendency to believe that Murray
is at last determined to move really de-
cisively in the next few months, before the
next CIO convention, to solidify non-
Communist control of the CIO. If that is
indeed Murray's intention, Lee Pressman,
CIO counsel, and key "left-wing" stra-
tegist, is certain to go the way of De
Caux and the others. When and if that
happens (and it is still a very big if) it
is universally expected in the CIO that
Communist knives will be sharpened for
the most ruthless kind of political warfare
against Pressman's present boss, Philip
Murray.
One reason why Murray has already
moved with such unaccustomed decision is;
in the opinion of those who know him, that
he is a deeply patriotic man, increasingly
disturbed by the developments abroad, and
by the relationship between these develop-
ments and the American Communist party.
Another reason is undoubtedly Walter Reu-
ther's remarkable victory in the devious
Communist control of the CIO's largest
union, which in turn gives Murray a solid
base from which to operate.
There is an obvious moral to all this. A
long as the, American economic system
functions reasonably well, in the context of
civil and political liberty, the American la-
bor movement itself can be relied upon to
deal with the tiny minority of its members
who serve a foreign interest. The Com-
munists can hope to gain control of Amerin
can labor only in two ways. One is the
total failure of the economic system, in
which case it no doubt deserves to be re-

placed. The other is a real threat to tra-
ditional American civil liberties, such as
contained in that legal monstrosity, the
House-passed Rees bill. Such a threat will
tend to rally a really important segment
of the American left, for the first time in
American history, around the Communists.

SOME GROUNDS for encouragement are
found by the National Safety Council in
the half-year figures for death due to traf-
fic accidents. They reach 14,480 as com-
pared with 15,290 in the same period in
1946. It was made in the face of a road
travel upswing of 11 per cent in the first
five months of the year.
Any downward trend in traffic deaths
is to be welcomed with gratitude, but while
we are still killing on the roads and streets
at the rate of nearly 2,000 persons per year
no agency and no individual concerned with
safety can afford to relax in effort to cut
down this needless and disgraceful toll.
Carelessness has just one meaning-it means
death or injury to thousands.

TOM DEWEY has been out handshaking
over the country these past two weeks.
Everybody rather mournfully agrees that he
is the probable nominee of his party for
1948. The only trouble with Dewey's can-
didacy for the presidency is that practically
nobody really likes him. He has the inside
track because he epitomizes Eligibility. The
girl may not care for him, but Pa thinks
all the time of that fat block of New York
electoral votes.' Personally, Dewey looks all
right; his table manners are good; he has ,
hard, personal, opportunistic efficiency; and
people are forgetting that unkind comment
which somebody made in 1944 - that you
really have to know Dewey well to dislike
him. Then again, he has another advant-
age as a political suitor - that of contrast
with his rivals; Dewey may not have much
voter sex appeal himself, but Bricker is no
Don Juan either and good old Bob Taft
umnild hardl he the nin-in nicture in any

BARNABY...

How foolish of my age to hope that my

If Bob were a h(-man he'd defy mother.
