T-H Repeal Still Asked
President Truman said he still
stands for full repeal of the I alt
Hartley Act.
He said, that he had not discussed-
concessions with labor
leaders and that his own position
Is well known.
Throughout the presidential
campaign last fall, and since, the
President has called for repeal of
the whole Taft-Hartley Act and
restoration of the old Wagner
Labor law with minor revisions.
He was asked about reports
that labor leaders have agreed
to some concessions on a new
labor bill In order to get repeal
of the present law.
He said specifically that he did
not talk about concessions yes
terday during a conference with
President William Green of the
American Federation of Labor.
The President restated his
stand as House Labor Committee
Democrats were called together
to plan strategy for getting Taft
Hartley repeal and minimum
wage legislation through the
House In the next month.
There was much talk of con
cessions as the lawmakers got
together, along with predictions
of a bitter battle.
Both the AFL and the CIO now
have publicly acknowledged that
thty might agree to some changes
In the administration's Thomas
Lesinskl bill which failed to get
through the House. They con
tinue, however, to oppose vigor
ously any chamre that would ner.

Eisler, who also was awatlng
deportation proceedings, has
been trying to get out of the
countrv for a long time. Neigh.
bors reported they had not seen
mm arouna nis new ioik apart
ment since late last week.
The Justice Department has
been investigating his disappear
ance and Scotland Yard aetec
tives were waiting for the Batorv
to dock at Southampton.
blsler has admitted being
Communist, but denied being the
ino. l Ked in tnis country as
alleged before the House Com
mittee on un-American Activi
ties. He even sought helD from
the United Nations In an effort
to be allowed to leave the United
States voluntarily and return to
nis native uermany.
He is one ol more than 30 al
leged alien Communists accused
in deportation proceedings in the
past two years.
In Two Court Fights
Eisler has been fighting
against two Jail sentences.
The U. S. Court of Appeals at
Washington refused recently to
upset his conviction on a charge
of concealing Communist connec
tions In an application for a per
mit to leave the country. The
conviction on that charge
brought a sentence of one to
three years.
For several months he has also
had an appeal pending before the
U. S. Supreme Court from a sen
tence of one year and a $1,000
line, xne penalties were imposed
on a conviction of contempt of
congress growing out oi nis re
fusal to be sworn as a witness
before the House Un-American
Activities Committee.
The Civil Rights Congress will
now forfeit the ball which it
raised for Eisler.

Three Alarms In
Day Give Fire
Dept. Busy Time
As the temperature In Rose
burg soared to a high for the
season of 88 degrees Wednesday
the Roseburg Fire Department
had a busy time, answering three
calls during the day.
None of the fires, however, was
serious. The Department was
called for a brush fire at 1352
Harvard at 2 p.m. Again at 7:15
a general alarm was sounded,
when a fire was reported at the
Douglas Abstract building. The
blaze was confined, however, to
the sawdust burner, and there
was no damage aside from what
may have been caused from
smoke. At 8 o'clock a car fire
was reported at the corner of
Lane and Pine Streets, but the
blaze was out upon arrival of
the Department.
Humidity dropped to a mini
mum of 32 percent yesterday at
4 p.m., according to a report from
the U. S. Weather Bureau, and
is predicted to drop as low or
lower today.
The warm weather and low
humidliv have not materially af
fected the high mountain area,
where the humidity is somewhat
higher. The principal concern, ac
cording to the U. S. Forest Serv
ice, is in the lower fringes, and
especially in plantings of new
trees, where they are drying out
considerably. Rain is needed to
insure satisfactory growth, it was
