Ecklund, national presi dent of the American Federation of Teachers, Tuesday emphasized four points in advocating a union of tea chers, and added that “It’s true that things have been badly handled by the newspapei-s.” Eklund spoke before students and faculty members of the educa tion school Tuesday afternoon. The American Federation of Teachers is affiliated with the American Fed eration of Labor. In what Eklund jokingly termed a "death struggle” with the Port land Oregonian he said “they pick ed up the two quotes at Monmouth that they liked I guess, because they used them and left the others out.” The two quotations were that Ek lund had complimented Oregon Col leges of Education on a “basicallj fine and intelligent job of teacher training,” and that he had beer misinterpreted as attacking the dual system as it exists in Oregon.

A question and answer period was held after Eklund had outlined the policies of the teachers’ union. One question regarded teacher strikes. Eklund answered, “The AFT has a no-strike policy on the national scale. It was agreed that we would not strike against the children of labor. We recognize the fact that to remove the services of education is a local problem and should be at the option of the local group.” Q—How about the children ?
