ABSTRACT
Criticizes the struggle of labor leader John L. Lewis to fight for the rights of unions against U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt's willingness to grand his approval. Allegation by Lewis on the President for his dictatorial role; Argument that Lewis that has long prevented a healing of the dangerous breach between the Congress of Industrial Organizations (CIO) and the American Federation of Labor; Incapacity of Lewis to the test of the present world crisis is his complete misjudgment of the international situation and of Roosevelt's role in it. View that Roosevelt will be chosen by an overwhelming majority of the labor vote, and that Lewis, following his promise, will resign his CIO office.
