Transcript International Labor Organization (Continued from Page 41) eight Iron Curtain countries that have a total of 32 votes in the ILO, as compared to 4 votes from the United States, Meanwhile we pay 25 per cent °f the cost, while the eight Communist countries pay a total of 14K per cent. ItO PROVING GROUND F°R COMMUNISM AND SOCIALISM . The Communists have got their foot "i the door in the ILO, and they are Preparing to take it over. Their inter- """.ilile tirades of oratory at tlie 1955 session were incredible. Many nations of the rest of the "Orld are much impressed, and are afraid of the Russians. It seems to me ery probable, therefore, that from n°vv (m ilo proposals and findings Ui"- without Question, go more deli- j"t(,|y to the left. The ILO is going to 16 swamped by Red propaganda. \\ e were told by a member of the Uiho,- Department, in the last days of tlie — I in,nan regime, that it was important that the United States pretend, "the ILO to go along with Socialist P'a'osophy, because the Socialists ,\""M help us contain the Communis.

We had definitely succeeded in having some of the most objectionable provisions of proposed ILO conventions thrown out. We had done far more than that. We had raised such a row against the very principle of conventions enacted as international laws that the ILO has passed only one convention in the last three years. But when the Communists came back in, and were accepted, and we had Communist agents put on employers committees — well, that to me well-nigh spelled the end of the road. There is one last stand still to be taken. The ILO has appointed a committee to determine whether employer and worker delegates from various countries represent associations of free employers and free workers, or whether they don't. The idea is that the report of this committee might be the basis for formulating a constitutional amendment under which so- called Communist employer and worker delegates could be thrown out. . . . COMMITTEE GOVERNS FATE If this committee makes its report in all sincerity on the basis of actual facts, if the ILO Governing Body takes this proposal seriously and puts the matter on the agenda of the ILO Conference, I think that we in the United States should stick tight and use our utmost influence to further this objective. But if. on the other hand, things go the other way — and I think thev will — if no determined effort is made by the ILO to disqualify the Communist so-called employer and worker delegates — we will be faced with the prospect that the ILO will become just another Communist-do,ninated organization. And in that case I can say very frankly that 1 can see no further constructive purpose to be gained bv continuing further United States participation in the ILO. But no matter what we do about the ILO, remember that this is onlv one ol the various arms of the United Nations that are enacting conventions, and seeking thereby to write laws governing internal domestic affairs and impose them upon us bv the device of treaty ratification. ... I don't want the laws of the United States written lor us bv representatives of over sixty foreign countries. I say, let's write our own laws, in our own way. end USHIONS Simplicity of design and operation mean unmatched service and long maintenance-free life.
