Masse, Benjamin L.
November 1946
America;11/16/1946, Vol. 76 Issue 7, p177
The article discusses the history of the Congress of Industrial Organizations (CIO) which was established by its founder John L. Lewis in the U.S. in 1936. It mentions that some American people perceived CIO as the carrier of message of hope, dignity and freedom from fear and want. There is a need for current CIO president Philip Murray to make a decision on whether the organization will remain a citadel of American unionism and democracy or become the chief vase operations of totalitarian power in the U.S.
