AFL Leaders Endorse Drive For Soap
For Europe's Thirty Million'Children
New York.— International and
local union leaders urged support
of a plan sponsored by CARE, the
nonprofit agency known to millions
for its humanitarian aid to Eu
rope’s needy, by which Americans,
St no cost to themselves, can pro
vide sorely needed soap for Eu
ropean children.
Matthew Well, AFL vice pres
ident and president of the Labor
League for Human Rights, H. A.
Bradley, president of AFL’s In
ternational Chemical Workers Un
ion, and local leaders called for
active support of the unique
national drive which will help al
leviate the extreme scarcity of
soap.
The CARE soap campaign pro
vides that for every two Swan
soap wrappers sent to CARE, Bos
ton 1, Mass., CARE will guarantee
delivery of a bar of Swan soap to
needy children overseas. Paul Com
ly French, executive director of CA
RE, announced that Lever Bro
thers Co., of Cambridge, Mass.,
has agreed to donate the soap to
CARE for this purpose.
Mr. Woll, as head of the Labor
League for Human Rights, an af
filiate of CARE, declared: “The
advancement of the health of Eu
ropean families striving to rebuild
their countries and to restore free
democratic trade anions is a pro
ject that has been close to the
heart of the AFL for years.
“Through our Labor League for
Human Rights, we have sent many
thousands of CARE food and
clothing textile packages abroad,
and now we are glad that this pro
ject is to be supplemented by ship
ment of special large quantities of
soap through CARE.
“We heartily recommend full
participation in the campaign by
all AFL members.”
Adding approval of the Swan
CARE campaign, Mr. Bradley, at
the Akron, Ohio, headquarters of
the ICW, stated: "This is a very
worthy cause and my personal ob
servation and experience in Europe
proves to me the value will be far
reaching.
“Those of us who represent AFL
union labor at Lever plants are
glad to know that part of our soap
production will go to help young
sters abrt>ad. We can think of no
better way of showing the good
will of America than through pro
moting the welfare of unfortunate
children.

Federal Loans
Urged to Help
Co-op Housing
Washington.—A bill to provide
direct federal loans to meet the
housing qeeds of middle-income
families was mtrodnced in the
House of Representatives by Rep.
Thomas H. Burke of Ohio.
The bill would establish a pro
gram of direct federal loans, at
lower interest rates, to coopera
tives and other types of nonprofit
corporations and organizations who
would provide housing for tental
or for sale to members.
Designed to aid families which
could afford $40 to $60 a month for
housing, the bill has the support
of many labor, veterans' and re
ligious groups. It would not sup
plant or alter any of the existing
systems of moitgage insurance
under the National Housing Act,
but would supplement such pro
grams.
A Cooperative Housing Admin
istration, within the Housing and
Home Finance Agency and head
ed by a Cooperative Housing Com* ,
missioner is provided in the bill.
Loans would not exceed the de
velopment or acquisition cost of
the housing projects and would
bear interest at a rate equal to
the going federal rate of interest
at the time the loan was made.
The Cooperative Housing Commis
sioner would be authorised to issue
and have outstanding at any one
time, notes and obligations not in
excess of $1,000,000,000. This lim
itation would be increased by an
additional $1,000,000,000 on July
1 of each suceeding year, through
1954.
While not restricted to veterans,
the program would give first pref- .
erence to veterans or families of
veterans.
Labor Supports
Blood Program
Philadelphia. — Organized labor
here is boosting the Red Cross’
blood-donor campaign.
Joseph A. McDonough, business
manager of the AFL’s Central
Labor Union, Henry F. Shipherd,
president of the Philadelphia In
dustrial Union Council (CIO), and
W. B. Woodward, general chair
man, Brotherhood of Locomotive
Enginemen and Firemen, joined in
the pledge of support for the Blood
Center. q
“Labor is firmly behind the blood
program,” they said. "Few pro
jects will so tremendously benefit
labor as a working blood program
such as the Red Cross has insti
tuted. Too often in the past we
have been compelled to pay high
sums for blood when it was need
ed. That situation no longer ex
ists.”
Each factory, plant and union
local will organize blood donations
under its own blood recruitment
chairman in cooperation with man
agement and the Red Cross, they
said.
"Now that we have the Blood
Center, we must see to it that it
carries out its objective of being
able to give blood free to every
one, regardless of race, color, creed
or financial status,” the union
leaders said.
"Labor will do its share to make
it succeed.”
