think that if Chris' had stayed

now? Maybe someone else
would have made the trip, but
It was Chris who took the big
Jump and found a New World.

A top official of the CiO said
(Tuesday the Farm Equipment
i workers leadership has voted to
merge with the United Electrical
workers in direct rebellion against
action of the last CIO convention.
The Farm Equipment workers
and the United Electrical workers
both are led by so-called left-wing
sympathizers. The Farm Equip
ment workers were directed by the
last convention of the CIO to
combine with Waiter Reuther's
United Auto workers. This the
smaller union, headed by Grant

sistent prodding by CIO President
The Farm Equipment board, i
meeting in Chicago between Sept. j
