Romney arranges to enjoy all-out
opposition from leaders of labor
By Lyle C. Wilson
UPI Staff Writer
Romney, an industrialist turned
politician, has just arranged to
enjoy the all-out and probably
angry opposition of union leaders
to his effort to be elected gover
nor of Michigan, tie is a Repub
lican. Romney would have been op
posed in Michigan by Big Labor
any way you slice it. That is be
cause the Democratic Party and
Big Labor work the same side ol
the political street in Michigan
and work it together. They are
as alike, politically, as identical
Deliberately or not, Romney
now has invited the same big
spending, o v e r-organized, ag
onized lalxr opposition in Michi
gan I his year that confronted the
late Sen. Robert A. Taft in his
UliO Ohio re-election campaign.
Big Lnlur over-did it in Ohio that
year. That probably increased the
enormous margin of Taft's re
election victory.
Romney's bid for union opposi
tion was made April 28 at De
Pauw University, Greencastle,
Rut., in a speech before an in
dustry and business conference,
lie had said it before, but on
April ai Homiiey best spelled out
his idea that Big Labor is too
powerful and should be curbed.
Ditto for Big Industry. But Big
Industry is accustomed to the
discipline of checks, balances,
brakes and an occasional bust on
Uie nose from Big Government
Big Labor is not so disciplined.
On the contrary, Big Labor is li
censed by Congress for monopo
ly. What Romney proposes is
that this license be rescinded.
The advisory committee on labor
nianngcmcnl policy repotted tins
week to President Kennedy. Some
of the industry members raised
the labor monopoly question. But
they mumbled, merely, compared
to Romney's forthright remarks
at Greencastle.
Labor's advisory commit
tee representatives sharply coun
tered that the monopoly baddies
were industrial not labor. Labor
Secretary Arthur J. Goldberg, a
public member of the committee
but more truly a spokesman for
the Kennedy administration, was
able to shove the labor monopoly
power question under the rug for
consideration in some other
study. To hold your breath until
that study takes place surely
would be fatal. The monopoly
power of labor and industry,
especially of labor, is developing
however toward becoming a ma
jor political issue.
Some illuminating sentences
from Romney's speech:
"In many important areas of
our national lite, the individual
x x x is transferring his rights
of citizenship to the corporation,
union, association, bureau or
league, or idly watching his re
sponsibilities drift to Washington.
"I think one of the most re
grettable aspects of American
life today is a situation where
union power and employer power
can be concentrated to a point
where an industry that is basic
to the economic welfare of the
total nation can be shut down as
a result of the position of either
group. We do not need more law
but modern law. Neither our la
bor laws nor our antitrust laws
are up to date.
"Our inconsistent (labor) laws
encourage the fostering of labor
monopoly x x x. "It is morally
and economically wrong for ei
ther unions as unions or ccrpora
tions as corporations to get into
politics directly or indirectly.
What I am talking about is di
rect or indirect political activity
on the part of economic organizations."

As Billy says, she usually packs
brass knuckles in powder puff
By Gay Pauley
UPI Staff Writer
tor, the milliner, says of her:
"She is the most feminine work
ing woman I know. She never
forgets she's a girl."
Dress designer Mollie Parnis
says: "She is absolute proof thai
a career woman can also be a
wonderful wife, wonderful hostess
and wonderful friend."
Doris Fleeson. the Washington
syndicated columnist, says of her:
"She's really a very simple girl.
She just wants the best of every
thing." Bob Considine, reporter and
columnist, calls her "the best
newspaperwoman I ever met."
Robb's New Book
All are talking about Inez Rubb,
columnist for the Scripps-Howard
newspapers and United Feature
Syndicate, whose book, "Don't
Just Stand There!", was published
today (by David McKay Co.).
All have known Inez Robb for
many years. So have I, for more
than either one of us will tell you.
But to write objectively about
a friend, you have to ask, does
she have any enemies? After all,
Inez is known to her millions of
readers for her always opinion
ated, often acid, often outraged,
always provocative observations
on the American scene.
As Billy Rose remarked, "Inez
generally packs a pair of brass
knuckles in her powder puff."
No Real Enemies
But I could locate none who
criticized her. "If Inez has any
enemies," said Mollie Parnis, "it
would be those envious of her
ability and success."
"Few women can say what they
think and be so beloved," said
Mrs. Victor.
"Don't Just Stand There!" pret
ty well sums up Mrs. Robb's ap
proach to life. She might have
added, "Do something.."
"1 get outraged at injustice,"
Inez once said to me when we
both were covering the 1957 Cana
dian and U.S. tour of Queen
Elizabeth and Prince Philip of
Great Britain.
I've seen her temper flare, but
for good reason. I've never seen
her behave other than as a lady,
no matter what angers her. Come
to think of it, I can't remember
when she didn't also look like a
lady, blonde hair perfectly coiffed,
wearing a hat.
"I'm not prissy," she said , the
other day, "but I abhor profanity
or obscenity in either man or
woman. I've never used a lour
letter word in my life.
"To me, those who do are il
literate.. .at loss for other words."
Having strong views and ex
pressing them were part of Mrs.
Robb's training from her growing
up days in California and Idaao.
"We were encouraged to be
opinionated," she recalled. "Even
the smallest could talk up at the
dinner table if he or she could
make sense."
Born Inez Callaway, she was
graduated from the University of.
Missouri's School of Journalism
in 1924. She worked first as a
reporter on the Tulsa (Okla.)
Daily World, then headed cast to
become first society reporter, then
society editor for the New York
Daily News.
In 1929, she married J. Addison
Robb, Jr., a New York advertis
ing executive and author, changed
her byline to Inez Robb and has
combined career and matrimony
with success ever since.
Covering royal doings is one of
her perennial assignments. In her
30 some years of reporting, she
wrote of the coronation of King
George VI in London, the wedding
of the Duke and Duchess of
Windsor, the wedding of Princess
Elizabeth and Elizabeth's corona
tion later as Queen, the 1957 tour
of the British royal couple. Prin
cess Margaret's wedding, and the
marriage of Grace Kelly to Prince
Rainier of Monaco.
