Hagerty in answer to CIO Prcsi- dent Rent Iter's denunciation thai the administration was perpetrating ;i "political fraud" in ils attitude inward Labor Secretary MitcheU. In a REPORTERS1 ROUNDUP Interview, Hagerty—commenting on Reuther's reference to a speech in which Secretary Mitchell expressed hi.-* views on righl-lo-work laws — views voiced without the advance approval oi' President Eisenhower —declared: "1 think that Jim Min In II is one of the best Secretaries of Labor this country has ever had. He represents all segments of labor. He is not primarily concerned will, or tied to any one labor organization. He is working for tbe welfare of the working men and women of this country. . . . and the charge that Mr. Reuther makes that Mr. Mitchell is a sort of second-class member of the Cabinet is the most ridiculous charge I have ever beard." Hagerty further emphasized, "Jim Mitchell was appointed by the President as Secretary of Labor and .... bis opinions are constantly sought i" lhe process of working out a legislulivc program." As to President Eisenhower's react ion to Secretary Mitchell's speech, which was not submitted in advance to the While House. Hag- ertj slated: "The President believes thai a member of tbe Cabinet has a right to express his opinion, ami he doe- nol want a member ol' the Cabinet to be jiisl a "rubber stamp* or a *yes nian.' " Hagerty went on to say, "I would recommend that even Mr. Reuther take another look at that speech. In talking of thc seventeen stales that have these right-to-work laws, Mr. Mitchell was merely saying thai he thought thai these states should take another look at those laws. He was not proposing this as either an administration policy or a legislative policy of the national administration lo be submitted to (his Congress. In tin- first place we couldn't: those are purely stale laws, and it is up to each one of those slates to lake those actions ... if the stale legislatures in their wisdom think that any such action is necessary. He was merely proposing this and stating his often-expressed opinion that these right-to-work law- were detrimental." \\ hen asked if he did not prefer that public expressions of opinion by administration officials coincide wilh those of the While House. Hagerty replied", "Nol necessarily ; on many subjects, of course, bul noi necessarily.*' Press Secretary Hagerty concluded, "I believe it is quite fining and proper for individuals lo express their own opinions without in any way lying down an administration to a policy decision, ami that's what Mr. Mitchell did." £ >■; '■A, TS ,.
