figure An Able and Interesting Speaker JOHN R. HAROLD Notable New York Labor Attorney Recently Back from Nearly Three Years in Japan, where He Was Head of Labor Relations under MacArthur … Made a Brilliant Record … THE REDPATH BUREAU KIMBALL BUILDING Chicago 4, Ill. Phone: Harrison 7-8723 25 W. 45th St., Suite 5-N New York 19, N. Y. Phone: MUrray Hill 7-7073 JOHN R. HAROLD JOHN R. HAROLD went to Japan in November, 1945 as Assistant Judge Advocate of the Far East Air Forces, took civilian employment in August, 1946, as Assistant Chief of Labor Relations Branch, and became Chief in April, 1947. In the latter capacities he has had first-hand, direct relations with the formation, structure and growth of the Japanese trade union movement, the internal political forces involved therein, the labor laws in relation to labor relations, the Japanese governmental agencies concerned with the administration of labor relations, the Japanese concept of collective bargaining, conciliation, mediation, arbitration, dispute tactics, and the trade union agreement. He became familiar with the inter-relation of these trade unions to the political and economic life of Japan and particularly with the efforts of the Japanese Communist Party and the Far Eastern Cominform to make a political tool of that labor movement. To him was given the responsibility of making occupation policy in respect to these varied and important problems in the life of a nation. LECTURED IN JAPAN In the field of labor education he lectured throughout Japan to audiences varying in size from 3,000 to 5,000—in all, approximately 150,000 Japanese. Through the media of press conferences and his publications in Japanese on labor relations problems, he approached thousands more. These lecture tours gave him an insight into the make-up of the Japanese as a people as well as background information on the colorful country of Japan. PROMINENT N. Y. LABOR ATTORNEY Mr. Harold attended Manhattan College and Fordham University School of Law. He was admitted to practice in New York state in 1937. At one time he was a Director of the Catholic Labor Defense League and Vice President of the Association of Catholic Trade Unionists. He was a member and officer of the Chain Service Restaurant Employees Union, A. F. of L. As a lawyer he has represented the A. F. of L. and C. I. O. unions in and around New York City. Lecture Subjects JAPAN PLAN JAPAN TODAY LABOR RELATIONS IN JAPAN Buffalo, N. Y., Greater Buffalo Advertising Club, Floyd M. Crawford, Ex Secretary John R. Harold delivered a most enlightening address on Japan Plan with particular emphasis on present-day labor conditions in the Islands of Japan. His talk was very informative and left Ad Clubbers with a better knowledge of what goes on today behind the scenes among the Nipponese, and, incidentally, what a fine job General of the Army, Douglas MacArthur, is administering there, in contrast to what is happening in Berlin. The Russians know who is boss in Japan, said Mr. Harold, and govern themselves accordingly—that is, if they want to stay.
