‘Dole economy’ rapped by Dewey

Saratoga Springs, New York (UP) –
Governor Thomas E. Dewey, in a message to delegates at the annual meeting of the State Industrial Union Council today, assailed those “who seek to perpetuate a dole economy” sand warned that “wage earners of this nation must go forward to an assured peace in which there will be jobs for all.”

His message, read to the meeting, made it clear that Governor Dewey wished to give full recognition to labor for its part in the war effort.
