WASHINGTON, D. C. Jan. 13
THE temper of congress seems
very clear on two points of legis
lation. First, the men and women
in the armed forces are to be bene
ficiaries of some type of legislation
which will assure them of the op
portunity to vote. Second, the labor
mess strikes, threatened strikes
and wildcat walkouts which have in
many cases seriously hampered the
war efforts will get immediate at
tention from congress, either thru
an amendment to the Smith-Con-nally
anti-strike law or thru new
legislation. The scores of returning
lawmakers who visited the home
folks during the holiday recess re
port that the people are absolutely
fed up with strikes and threatened
strikes which' have kept the public
in a continual state of "jitters" ever
since Pearl Harbor.
The home folks, and the service
men also, made it very clear that
members of the armed forces should
have a chance to vote, and they're
mighty sore at congress for stalling
in the matter. Spearheaded by con
gressmen who are Legionnaires and
ably assisted by the potent Ameri
can Legion lobby, some measure is
sure to pass granting discharged
service men a bonus and other ben
efits. This session of congress will see
plenty of politics mixed in with
every roll call vote. All of the boys
have their eyes on the ballot box,
which will be taken out of storage
next fall. Speeches galore will fill
the Congressional Record for the
"benefit of the home folks and nine
tenths of it will be nothing more or
less than politics, intended to snag
the votes of the lawmakers' con
stituents. COMPETENT observers of labor
politics are convinced that union
leaders are less concerned with im
mediate wage increases than with
the long view of postwar pay.
There are indications that future
efforts will be toward stabilizing
conditions after the war and that
the main purpose in the negotiation
of labor contracts will be to secure
guarantees of minimum monthly,
weekly and daily wage rates for a
stated period after the war has
ended. This position has been stren
gthened by the attitude of the ad
ministration, in extending such
guarantees to farmers in the form
of a floor for basic crops to be
maintained either thru the payment
of subsidies or. if subsidies are out
lawed by congress, the purchase of
surplus products by commodity cre
dit corporation or some other gov
National leaders of labor have
not been responsible for the recent
flareup of strikes and in most cases
have done their utmost to prevent
them. What they really want is an
assurance that there will be no re
duction in wages when the millions
of workers are released from war
plants and seek employment in pri
REFUSAL of war production
board to place an embargo on the
importation of Cuban gin and rum
is indirectly responsible for its ap
proval of a project for the produc
tion of 2,500,000 gallons of alcohol
from paper pulp waste by a plant
to be located in the Puget Sound
area. If the embargo were to be im
posed, large quantities of Cuban
blackstrap would be released for
the production of industrial alcohol
and the sulphite liquor would not
be required. However, this use of
pulp paper waste has long been ad
vocated and if the experiment de
monstrates the economy of the pro
cess a new industry may be estab
lished in the Pacific northwest.
What its status may be after the war
demand for industrial alcohol has
ended is open to speculation.
Also, if the embargo were im
posed and the Cuban blackstrap
made available for the production
of alcohol, there would be no fur
ther excuse for forbidding the dis
tilleries to resume the making of
whiskey and a further result would
be to make available to American
consumers a much larger allotment
of sugar. Yet another effect would
be to release vast quantities of
grain now being used in the pro
duction of industrial alcohol but
which is urgently needed for stock
feed. The Puget Sound experiment
will be watched with interest by
the operators of pulp paper mills in
the northwest, particularly with re
spect to the cost of the product.
Immigration service of the de
partment of justice is already lin
ing up a skeleton organization to
take over the work which has been
done by the war relocation author
ity, now in disrepute because of the
incidents at the Tule Lake center in
northern California. The scrapping
of the relocation authority is only a
matter of a few weeks and the in
ternment camps will then be sup
ervised by the immigration and na
turalization service where, many
believe, it should have been placed
at the start. There is little senti
ment in favor of turning the intern
ment camps over to the army for
the performance of what is regard
ed as purely police duties.
