On one farm where a record wos kept, the family in one yeor, traveled 124 miles ... on foot and sometimes on the run! . . . carrying 15,042 gallons of water to the house, born, and chickenhouse The next yea an electric motor pumped 19,951 gallons of water on this farm. The pump cost $100. The cost of electricity to run it for one year was only $1.58. Electricity thus saved 77 ten-hour days for other wofk, or for leisure. Estimating wages at the minimum cost per hour for farm labor today, the time saved in one year amounted to more than the cost of three electric pumps!

DUK£> POWER COMPANY , v* ^ /ZuudUnont C&tfAmml* V’ AFL Supports Four Revisions To T-H Act Opposed To Any Provisions Authorizing The Issuing Of Court Injunctions In Disputes CLEVELAND—The AFL executive council today agreed unanimously to four amendments in the Truman admini stration’s original bill to repeal the Taft-Hartley act. The concessions were made in conferences with government leaders, President William Green said. The council ratified that action. One would allow presidential seisure for 30 days of “any struck plant or industry whose idleness threatens to bring about a na tional emergency.” The AFL also agreed to these amendments: 1. A requirement that em ployers as well as anion lead ers sign non-Communist affida vits. 2. A requirement for filing of financial reports by unions. 3. A guarantee of free speech for employers in dealing with their workers, short of intimi dation or coercion. In other respects, the AFL stood pat for the Thomas-Lesin ski bill offered by the administra tion early in the 81st session of Congress. That calls for repeal of the Taft-Hartley act with “certain improvements” which Mr. Truman proposes. The AFL council ended its quarterly meeting with the Taft Hartley statment. It emphati cally declared itself opposed to "any provision authorising the is suance of court injunctions in labor-management disputes.” The injunction weapon was in serted in a compromise bill in the House, but the whole question was referred buck to committee after close roll call votes. Many AFL leaders think the injunction provision was aimed at stopping a possible coal strike this sum mer by John L. Lewis' coal miners. The recurring question of affil iation of the miners with the AFL came up again. Lewis and Green lunched in Washington last week. Green said he reported on that conversation to the council. But he expressed the view at a news conference that re-affiliation of Lewis and his 600,000 miners —who walked out in 1947 for the second time—was not imminent. Green said: “There’s nothing that has taken place or statement made to war rant the conclusion that he will become affiliated with the Amer ican Federation of Labor for the present at least. “I might say ‘no’ and ‘yes’ to the question whether he is consid ering affiliation. I don’t think he has any inclination to become af filiated now. but he is rather in favor of it some time in the future. “There were no conditions at tached. I’m sure that when he returns it will be unconditionally. The last convention of the AFL expressed regret that he had gone and hoped that he would re turn. That was expressed by the convention itself.” The council will meet August 15 in Toronto, Canada. UNFAIR LABOR CHARGES SHOW A DROP WASHINGTON. — New unfair labor practice charges against employers declined in April for the first time in six months. Charges against unions increased. But the charges against employ ers still far outnumbered the charges against unions. That picture for April was re ported yesterday by the National Labor Relations Board. There were 358 charges against employers — about two-thirds of them brought by unions and the rest by individuals. There were 135 charges against unions—12 of them by other un ions 84 by individuals, and 59 by employers. The figure of 135 compares with an average of 84 such cases for the last six months. UNION INDUSTRIES SHOW DELIGHTS THRONGS (Continued from Page 1) expected that the Amalgamated Meat Cutters Union would hand out 50,000 pounds oi meat cut by their members who operated a butcher shop upon the floor. Miniature railroads, model dams and flood control systems, gad gets of every conceivable kind caught the attention of the pub lic. Outside the hall, the cut away fuselage of the arm’s B-29 and the navy’s V-2 rocket and guided missels vied with the other exhibits for careful examination by the public. 1 Greetings LINCOLN THEATRE H.
