ABSTRACT
This article reports that Dwight D. Eisenhower was the one man who could neutralize the attraction between the Democrats and the labor leaders. The most important development in the labor-political scene is the real probability that the American Federation of Labor, after years of official aloofness from national politics, will endorse Adlai E. Stevenson at the AFL convention which opens in New York in a few weeks. The groundwork for this historically important move, which would destroy an old non-partisan tradition in the AFL, was laid last week at the meeting of the AFL executive council in Atlantic City.
