THE' PERQUIJlANS WEEKLY. HERTFORD. N. C. FRIDAY. MAY 9, 1952.
The tremendous amount of cor
respondence I have received, 'and am
still receiving, relative to the steel
peizure points up, I think, a significant
. fact: :.!;:'.'.- ,:;,. L. ; .
; Our. people will tolerate just so
j much and no more. Of the hundreds
upon hundreds of letters, postal Cards
' and telegrams I have received, only
one has supported the President's act
All the'rest were very critical of the
seizure.: .''''V;-'-- 'A.-'
-Most of 13ie correspondence came
vfrom North Carolina, and from peo
j ple who began by saying -they are
r Democrats. The one letter favoring
the seizure cam from Cincinnati,
I can't say that I was surprised at
'the historic decision by Judge Pine.
Judging from the press and radio re
ports, 1 could not feel that the gov
ernment had made any case at all in
its ttempted justification of the seiz
ure. I thought Judge Pine prepared 1 the Senate 17 months aero I have been
a part of your freedom for money,
you have entered into a bad bargain;
'Last -Tuesday,? the Senate handled
two big appropriations bills. In pass
ing the bills, we reduced the proposed
spending by 20-odd millions of dol
lars below what the House had apr
proved. That means that the House
and 'Senate must now get together
on the bills, and arrive at a compro
mise.' i-; .';.': ::--'';':l:4'!-
'At any rate, the taxpayer will be
glad to know that both the Senate and
the House are in favor of cutting gov
ernment spending. Of course the bu
reaucrats are complaining and are
causing considerable pressure to be
brought on the member of the Con
gress in an effort to gain larger ap.
pronriations. r 'V '" ' V'
This is true even in North Caro
lina. ; Every day Senator Hoey and I
receive scores' of letters written by
peonle in supoort of various programs.
Manv of these letters have the same
wording, which means that some lob
byist or pressure group is rounding
up support -by scaring our people,
'For example; there is'ar great deal
written about the defense effort. Some
of our -people are being; led to be.
lieve that war fs about to break out
"tomorrow." Ever Since I came to

dealing only with the legal and consti
tutional aspects of the matter.
Of course, there are some who will
try to use this situation as a means
of causing disunity, of creating an
even larger barrier between organized
labor and management.
I negret that many of our organiz
ed working people do not realize that
they are being used as pawns for the
ambitions ' of certain labor ; leaders
and left-wing politicians. Certainly
it seems to me that the real workers
among organized labor have Just as
much at stake In this question as
anyone else. ," . - ;
It may well be that, had. the Presi
dent's seizure not been challenged, the
steelworkers might have won a pay
raise larger than they expect to ob
tain otherwise. But when you swap
ed at all, should go where it can be.

the least cost.' I am certainly not in!

lions dollars just to have it placed

The RFC Matter
The mail this past week indicated
that most North Carolinians did not
feel like mourning "the impending
death of the RFC. As you may have
noted last week. Senator Hoey and
I were two of the seven Democrats
who voted to abolish the RFC. ' ;
! In looking over the hearings on the
RFC loans, it was astonishing to see
how many millions Of dollars had been
loaned to whiskey manufacturers, re
sort hotels, theatres, bars, bowling al
leys and other similar groups that
could by no stretch of the imagination
be of any great importance to the
American people. '. In the list of such
absurd loans on pages 91, 92 and 83 of
the hearings, I was glad not a single
North Carolina group was listed.
Indeed the RFC had been prosti
tuted to ignoble purposes at the ex
pense of our people. . , ;
