LET REDDY DO YOUR
RUNNING!
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!
The Duke Power Company already serves over
100,000 rural customers. Our farm engineers
invite you to consult them afcxxjt making
electricity serve profitably on your form.

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.
