We read that a great anti-radical campaign is to bo launched early In September. The junion Chamber of mercc of Los Angeles will starl the ball rolling with n big meeting in Hollywood Bowl; other places arc expected lo take up Ihc torch, and coordination of all (mli-radical groups throughout the land is expected to result. Now all of (his comes under the head of fi worthy cause surely—And yet it is precisely in a campaign of this kind that it is most important lo search Ihe woodpile carefully for lurking darkies. XXX You may remember some of Ihc disclosures made several years ago when the Federal Trade Commission was invcsligaling Ihc propaganda efforts of the power trust. At that time it was revealed that one of the trust's publicity advisors, writing to another adviser, frankly urged that they try to "pin the Bolshevik label" on people who were campaigning for lower electricity rate, public ownership and so on. It's an old gag, after all, Yell "Red" at a man long enough and you can persuade people to forget a man's actual accomplishments and ignore his logic; eventually you can Ret your chesnuls pulled out of Ihc fire for you very neatly indeed. XXX So before we sel lo work lo crack down on all radicals we ought to in-! spcct the woodpile pretty carefully.! We ought to make sure—to change Ihc metaphor—that we are not reaching into any live coals to retrieve anybody else's chcshuts. A campaign of tiiis kind could be • a cruel and tyrannical thing, if fol-1 lowed blindly. If there are people in ] America who arc trying to bring on a bloody revolution, let's get after But let's not let ourselves be fool- j cd into pinning that label on anybody and everybody who sponsors a movement or a cause that threatens nothing bul some selfish vcslcd interest. XXX A Youngstown, (O.) man. driving j his car, while police say, he was under the influence of liquor, runs down and kills four little girls who were walking along an open highway. And if we need any more proof ot the] adage that gasoline and alcohol don't | mix, here it is—in tragic, terrible form. | We seem, so far, to be refusing to j face the facls in connection wilh re- i peal jusl as slubbornly as we refused lo face Ihcm in conncclion wilh pro- j hibition for so many years. If we are going lo have Ihc open and legal sale of intoxicants, we have simply got to find some way of keeping these intoxicants out of people who arc driving automobiles. Perhaps we need to increase the si'/.c of our traffic patrol forces three or j four fold. Perhaps we need to make our traffic rode about, five times as) strict as it is now. Perhaps we need to submit t" far I'lorc stringent in- • fringi'iiienls on our personal liberty,] in connection with Ihc: use of autoa,, than wi! ever had In-fore. | Certain it is that we need something drastic. The people of the country simply will not stand the tragedies' like this one at Youngslown much I longer. XXX ! If, as Secretary of Labor, Frances Perkins once remarked, an outbreak of strikes is a sign of recovery, we must be heading back toward prosperity at. a terrific clip. The strike vote which will call out half a million textile workers on September 1.,unless some speedy adjustment is made, is only the latest in a rapidly inereas- in« list of industrial disputes. And whatever the significance of these strikes may bf. as regards re- ' covery, one thing is certain; they are horribly expensive things for everybody involved, and they constitute a pretty heavy load for our reviving in-^ ihistrial machinery to bear. ] In spile of the NRA's fine: words, we haven't, yet found a very efficient way of adjusting or preventing them; and a discovery of that kind comes close lo being the most pressing need of Ihe (lay.

Since the first drouth relief recommendation for specific counties was made to national drouth relief authorities by agricultural officials July 2,1, Xi Arkansas counties have been designated for emergency drouth relief and 2.T for secondary drouth relief. Crops on the delta lauds along the eastern border of the state are in cx- rcllcnt condition, T. Roy Reid, state driiolh relief director and assistant flirector in charge of the agricultural extension service, said Tuesday. Varying reports of drouth conditions have been received from other portions of the small area which has not received drouth relief, and it is hoped that further rains will make drouth relief in most of thes counties unnecessary, Mr. Reid said. Not Included Counties not on Ihc drouth relief arc Mississippi, Cross, St. Francis, Lee, CrillPiidci. Phillips, Monroe, Jefferson, Lincoln, Desha, Drew, Bradley, Ashley, Chicot, Lonoke and Prairie. llcmpsU-ad County Achlnil Hempstead county Tuesday was placed on the secondary list in the drouth area of Ihc "emergency list," County As||iit Frank Stanley said Wednesday.

Peace Parley Is Called Thursday in Textile Row Union Leaders, Employers Stick, to Guns in Eastern Area "ROUND TABLE" TALK Cotton Mill Managers Ready to Close Doors If Strike Opens WASHINGTON — (/P)— On the eve of a peace conference called to prevent a strike from crippling the nation's textile industry, union leaders and employers stuck lo their guns Wednesday. As the national labor relations boarc threw all its influence behind the peace move, these storm clouds hovered; 1. Francis J. Gorman, chairman ol the United Textile workers strike board, accused employers of trying to depict the workers as striking against the government. 2. Some cotlon mill managers were reported ready to close their factories if the strike materializes next Tuesday as planned. Conference Thursday The union leaders have accepted the labor board's invitation to a round table talk Thursday and the manufacturers, though reported to be making preparations for the strike, are expected to attend also. Chairman Lloyd Garrison, noted mediator, will pro- side. Gorman accused George Sloan, head of the cotton textile,-institute as trying to put strikers in the plight of striking against the cotton textile code or the givernment. He said Sloan was trying to get code authority members to come to the peace conference. "I find it necessary to repeat," he said, "that we are not striking against the government and we are not interested in meeting with the code authority." Told that the cotton textile relation board, headed by Bruce Brucrc, had been asked to the conference, Gorman said that he would do no busH... ness with the board, which he has criticiied. Nino textile mills In Alabama were reported ready to close in the veent of a strike, he executive v of a strike.

Johnson, still firmly in control despite recent rows over reorganisation has had his salary increased from $6,000 lo $15,000 a year. President Roosevelt boosted the pay last July 1, long before Ihe differences wilh Donald R. Richberg, NRA general counsel, and Secretary Perkins came near the breaking point. Johni-o nhacj complained many times thai he could not live on IJK.flOO and would have to return to private business.
