Transcript SPEAKING OF LABOR.... and in view of union participation in political activity, much is being discussed regarding labor today . . . the following questions were asked on recent Facts Forum radio programs, here presented for your evaluation: f" Should unions contribute federal election funds? ^. Should unions be exempt ^ f from anti-monopoly laws? ^\ NEUBERGER HIESTAND CELLER Rep. Edgar Hiestand (R-Cal.), who participated in the discussion of each of the above questions, is the author of two recent bills, one which would make labor unions subject to anti-monopoly laws, and another making it unlawful for any corporation or labor organization to contribute to a federal election fund. Sen. Richard L. Neuberger (D-Ore.) is the sponsor of o bill which would have the government finance political campaigns, freeing public officials from private obligations for campaign benefactions. Rep. Emanuel Celler (D-N.Y.) maintains that if anti-trust laws were made applicable to labor unions, unions would be destroyed and the American system would suffer. fs ing ' politica| Union Spending Senator Neuberger: Whether or Oot great wealth shall dominate irnn °,lr e'ections is an issue of great ilM0ttance t0 America's political life, de ' °* course, to the future of our qu °Cratie form of government.

The charge is made that some of these men arc Republicans and that most of the money is given to Democratic candidates. I should like to point out that the Republican partv is the beneficiary of millions of dollars in contributions by the executives, the directors, and the stockholders and owners of great corporations. Yet many of the employees, probably most of the employees, most of the customers (because this is a democratic country, meaning the Democratic party is generally in the majority and a great many of the stockholders of these corporations are Democrats) have nothing to say so far as I know about the contributions which are made by the owners and directors and the operators of these corporations to Republicans. Now it's generally admitted, and I don't deny it, that Democratic candidates, because they are usually more interested in the welfare of the working men ancl women of the country, the Democratic candidates receive more contributions from these political education funds of the labor unions than do the Republican candidates.
