I kaiser praises u. s. labor
movement for emergence
A8 NEW WORLD FORCE
Chester, N. Y. — One of the
most dramatic developments of
recent years has been the emerg
ence of American labor as an in
ternational force, Assistant Sec
retary of Labor Philip M. Kaiser
said in a speech here.
“As a annsequence, labor is
now part of the local community,
it is part of the national 'com
munity, it is part of the world
community." he said.
Kaiser-paid tribute to the gen
erous ai)d courageous activity
Which the American labor move
ment is carrying on in the inter
national field. “It is giving its
wholehearted support to the cor
nerstones of our foreign policy
—the Truman Doctrine, the Eu
ropean Recovery Program and
the North Atlantic Pact,” he
added.
Recently appointed as assistant
•secretary of labor for interna
tional labor affairs, Kaiser also
praised the AFL, the CIO and
the independent unions who “have
given generously to their needy
brothers in Europe." He said
“They have sent food and cloth
ine. thev have ariven money and
lent their support to orphanages
and to workdrs’ education schools
Yes, they have even been respon
sible for building model factories
in Europe.”
He pointed out that the CIO,
AFX. and the Railway Brother
hoods have opened offices in
Europe and have sent representa
tives to Latin America apd Asia.
"More than this, they have or
ganized a pool for the exchange
of trade union know-how and
have participated wholeheartedly
in similar programs sponsored
by the government,” Kaiser added.
“Trade unionists from every part

18.8 injuries per million man
hours worked in 1947 to 17.2 in
1948. Decreases were reported
for 14 of 22 mining; classifications
and for 15 of 40 other non-manu
facturing; industries.
Although the frequency of work
injuries decreased, the relative
proportion of fatalities and per
manent disabilities increased. As
a result the average number of
days lost per case in manufactur
ing rose from 72 in 1947 to 83
in 1948.
Noteworthy decreases in injuries
occurred in the lumber group of
industries. The frequency rate
for the group as a whole dropped
from 66 to 68.6. Logging ami'
sawmill!) still had the highest fre
quency rates of all manufacturing"
industries—that for logging was
the highest of any industry sur
I veyed.
