This article presents information on the book "The CIO and the Democratic Party," by Fay Calkins. The book is fundamentally honest and factual, admirably so in light of the fact that Miss Calkins has been personally and ideologically associated with the CIO. The study was made while she was a staff member of the Industrial Relations Center at the University of Chicago, the first in a series of studies planned by the Center on the economic and political impact of unionism on modern American institutions. All of her case studies are based on the 1950 local, state and Congressional elections.
