Sees No
Need For
Labor Curbs
Union City, N. J.—“I have not
seen a valid case for stronger
curbs upon laboT in general,” a
priest offical of the National
Catholic Welfare Conference de
clares in a copyrighted interview
in the November issue of The
Sign, national Catholic magazine
published here.
Rev. John F. Cronin, S. S., as
istant director of the NjC.W.C.
Social Action Department in
Washington, D. C.: adds, how
ever, that “Some special situa
tions might be looked into ....
One is the protection of workers’
jobs when union officials con
nive with dishonest employers
to exploit workers or the public.
Another would be use of union
power unlawfully to fix prices or
restrain competition, j Perhaps
anti trust laws ought to be ap
plied to unions in such cases.”
Father Cronin, in answer to 35
other questions, denies emphatic
ally that there is any need for
curbs on political activity by
labor or an union investment in
companies with which they deal.
“If workers want to exercise
their political rights collectively
as well as individually,” he says,
“they have the legal and moral
right to do so.”
As for union investment, the
roted social action priest points
cut: “Pope Pius XI encouraged
voluntary worker participation
in ownership, management, and
profits of industry. He did not
advocate this as a right, but only
as a useful means for lessening
labor management tensions. I
think that profit sharing, em
ployee stock ownership, and ‘hu
man relations’ programs for
worker participation in manage
ment have often paid off in this
In answer to other questions,
Father Cronin declares that:
The moral teaching of the
Church is based on the belief that
workers must be treated "as hu
man beings, not as pawns in an
economic game.” Unions are just
ified morally as necessary means
to secure labor’s rights. Priests
have a duty to try to solve con
crete social problems in the light
of moral principles. The Church’s
moral teaching on social matters
is binding on all Catholics. Strikes
are permissable, if other means
of securing justice fail. A Cath
olic should not cross a picket line,,
if he knows a strike is just.
The interview concludes with
Father Cronin’s advice to labor
today: “We encourage labor, and
any other economic group, to
seek the public welfare as well as
personal interests, to practice
I justice and charity, and to safe
' guard the rights of their mem
bers. If these ideals are -carried
out, everyone will benefit from
organized labor.”

(Chicago,—“Do you know as
much as your daughter?” was
the provocative question asked
of over 1500 delegates to the Na
tional Triennial Conference of
Camp Fire Girls, Inc. %t a general
session held in the Hotel Sherman
this evening. The National Pres
ident of Camp Fire Girls, Mrs.
Harold H. Hartman, Seattle,
Washington, who presided at the
audience participation meeting
explained that its purpose was to
emphasise the need for Camp
Fire adults to study with their
daughters America’s democratic
heritage and the documents that
have helped make it great. “Camp
Fire daughters,” she said, “have
been doing exactly that as a part
of their 1955 birthday project,
‘Let Freedom Ring!’ Now it’s
the grownups turn,” Mrs. Hart
man stated.
Delegates who took part in tne
program were divided into small
groups, each with its chairman
and “counsel”, armed with a copy
of the Bill of Rights to aid them
in answering such b^ain-teasers
as: “If the Bill of Rights were
tc be rewritten today, should any
Rights now stated be excluded,
and if so, which ones? Are there
other Rights which should be
enumerated Why have some
Rights become secure w h ile
others are under constant chal
lenge, Why was ‘taxation with
out representation’ omitted from
the Bill of Rights when it was
such an issue before the Revolu
tion If you were on trial in a
federal court for robbing the
mail, what are some of the prin
ciples of law which would pro
tect your life, liberty and proper
Questions which stumped the
delegates, including those re
quiring legal opinion, were an
swered by an authority on Con
stitutional Law, Stanley A. Kap
lan, member of a prominent Chi
cago law firm. 1
Mrs. Hartman advised dele
gates who felt they had not
“come through the ‘exam’ with
flying colors to take a look at
the ‘Let Freedom Ring!” exhibit

man had presided at the opening

That’s the one and only Fats
Waller singing out in his gravel
voiced style. And now Fats, dead
some 12 years, sings again in the
pages of the current issue of
SAGA magazine.
In a deserving tribute to the
greatest piano player that ever
inhabited the world of jazz, SAGA
presents the complete life story
of the composer of such all-time
favorites as “Honeysuckle Rose
nd “Ain’t Misbehavin’.”
“The One and Only Fats Wal

ately titled, goes back to May 21,
1904, to a house in Harlem where
Fats was bora, and follows the|

man’s rise to fame throughout
the United States and Europe.
It’s a colorful, bawdy, humorous
tale filled with anecodotes and the
atmosphere of small, smoky dives

profile employs quotes by Fats’
Louis Armstrong: “I've seen
Fats enter a place and all the
people in the joint would just
rave and you could see a sort of
gladness in their faces, and Fats
wouldn’t be in the place a hot
minute before he would tell them
a fine joke and have every hold
ing his side from laughing."
Hugues Panassie, French jazz
critic: “I really believe he is the
most perfect orchestral pianist
jazz has ever known. Fats is
also a great soloist, quite the
equal of any other. No other
has been able to fleveal as he has
that music is not complicated and
methodical art, but on the con
trary, a simple cry of love and of
the relaxation coming from the
heart of man. Fats is a power.”
Jack Chrystak: “He played
what appeared to be casual piano,
but no one has ever been able to
equal it."
Andy Razaf Fats’ collaborator:
“Fats could set the telephone
book to music.”
The Reverend Adam Clayton
Powell, now a United States Con
gressman: “Because God gave
him genius and skill, he in turn
gave the world laughter and joy
for its difficult and lonely hours.”
Fats Waller died 12 years ago,
but he still lives in his music,
bis records and now in the pages
of SAGA magazine.
