    6 Heppner Gazette
' AT fTHE " '
Washington, D C Feb. 10 IT is
becoming more and more apparent
to candidates of both parties that
a union labor endorsement for any
political office is almost equivalent
to the kiss of death, so say the po
liticos who keep their ears to the
ground. Many candidates up for
election and re-election have told
their campaign managers to turn
thumbs down on any idea of having
union labor organizations come out
actively for them. Any such open
support and publicity, they beieve,
will work to the detriment of any
candidate. In fact, it is agreed by
the wise boys that to have union
labor come out openly against a
candidate is one of the best bets
he has 'for election.
Many labor leaders know such to
be the truth, They also know a
large percentage of the rank and
file of liheir membership will not
follow organized labor's political
endorsements but, on the contrary,
will vote the other way, which has
been proved m P3 elections. A
good 75 percent of all union mem
bers belong to the union because
tihey have to, so to speak. When
they get in the election booth it's
one of the few times they are ac
corded an opportunity to register
their dislikes and! the antagonism
they hold toward certain union
TOP flight labor leaders know
that the public is fed up on war
time strikes. William Green, presi
dent of AFL, has taken the lead in
attempting to smooth over the bad
relations existing between organized
labor and the public by again re
iterating his pledge of no strikes for
the duration, regardless of any
grievances labor may have. "No
matter how great the grievance or
how aggravated a situation might
be, there can be on justification
for local strikes or local stoppages
of work. Our soldiers are meeting
their situations in a courageous
American way, and our soldiers of
production must meet the situation
in the same courageous way," said
This word has been passed on by
the big chief of the AFL to his sub
ordinates in no uncertain terms. It
is expected Philip Murray, presi
ident of CIO, will come out with a
like statement very soon. Labor
Pin-up for Those Not Buying Bonds
This American soldier took refuge under a truck during a Jap bombing
raid of our position! on Rendova. A Nipponese bomb, however, had his
number on it. Here you see his comrades gently removing his body from
under the engine. When 700 arc asked to buy War Bonds think of this
picture. Fttm U. S. Tttamuf

leaders know their political influ
ence at present is at an all-time
low. It's the intention of both or
ganizations to make every possible
effort to build up good will before
the fall elections. Organized labor
would like to make its voting
strength count this year. But com
petent observers say labor has a
huge amount of fence building to
do pronto if they expect to get
back in the good graces of John Q.
JUDGING from reports received
back here, the high command of
the Democratic party is pleased
with the political outlook in the
northwest After Vice President
Henry A. Wallace, Robert E Han
nagen, national chairman, and Os
car R Ewing vice chairman, broke
bread with the faithful last Tuesday
in Portland at the annual Jackson
day banquet, they held some long
pow-wowa with northwest party
leaders on the strategy to be used
in the coming campaign. The party
war horses predicted both states
are in the bag for the fourth term.
The trio stopped off in Seattle for
a day on their way east to talk
shop with the Wahington state big
wigs, who assured them '.every
thing was safe for democracy"
around those parts. Wendell Will
kie, accompanied by Ralph Cake,
his western poitical Moses, will
now take up where the Democrats
left off by feasting with the boys
and girls in Tacoma and Portland
the last of this week.
IT is predicted the coming cam
paign will see many prominent
Democrats on the Republican band
wagon, who are against a fourth
term. And by the same token, some
big shot Republicans will be all out
for Mr. Roosevelt and a fourth
term. The politicos don't think ex
Secretary of War Harry Woodring's
move to start a stop Roosevelt
campaign among the Democrats
will get anywhere. The former
Kansas governor is not popular
enough with any group to success
fully put over such a deal. A cou
ple of G. O. P. senators were all set
to turn loose a blast concerning
the $25,000 a year salary the Demo
crats are going to pay their brand
new national chairman, Robert E.
Hannagen, until it was announced
that the G O P paid JohnD M Ha
miton the same amount when he
was chairman. Incidentally, this is
the first time the Democrats have
ever paid any national chairman a
THE margarine vs butter battle,
which has been on. the active list
pf congress since the war began
is all set to open up again. High
ration points for butter plus a de
crease in production, has caused the
margarine manufacturers to keep
plugging away in their fight to
have congress abolish the 10 cents
per pound federal tax. A more than
ample stock of raw materials is
avaiable, say the margarine manu
facturers, to increase their output a
hundred million pounds a year.
