T HE Amerkan Federation of Labor, in convention at Atlantic City today, calls Italy "an outlaw nation" and urges the United Slates to have nothing to do with her. Organized labor has n twofold grievance against Mussolini. Not only has the dictator stirred up a foreign war to imperil the lives of the common people, but at home he has ruthlessly crushed their individual rights. Newspaper renders will recall that ., , _ flit was Mussolini who started, and Hit- Tier who followed, the practice of stamping out voluntary organizations of free laboring men. In both Italy and Germany organized labor has been crushed—merely one of the grim consequences of dic- Uitorship—but it was Italy whose dictatorship blazed the wny back to the Dark Ages; and labor can neither forgive nor forget.

It was one of the worst defeats a Hope team has handed an opponent in years. Practically the entire squad of some 30 Hope players saw action. Hope scored in every quarter except the fourth, when -second and third string players took the field. Hope made 22 first downs to 3 for African conquest, but labor would not be human if the wrong Italy has worked upon her people at home did not weigh equally heavy in the counsels of the Convention at Atlantic City.

American labor is organized by individual crafts, nftcr the fashion of the iincicnt Flemish and English guilds. Machinists arc put in one union, carpenters in another—although they may he working side by side in the same factory. The proposal which is disrupting the Atlantic City convention is to abolish the craft unions and reorganize labor by industries, having all the members of one industry—automobile, for instance—belong to one Salesman Held Up on Fulton Road » _... ---- - ------* T.

W. Nicol, of the Zip Manufacturing company of Litflc Rock, late Tuesday afternoon on the Hope-FuJUon road and escaped with $42 in cash. Nicol immediately reported to Hope officers, and bloohounds from Prcs- cott were rushed to the holdup scene, but they were unable to pick up the bandit's trail. Apparently the robber caught a ride on the highway and escaped in the direction of Texarkana. Officers worked on the case until 2 a. m. Wednesday without success. Taken In by IUi?e Nicol told Sheriff Jim Beardcn that | he was en route to Texarkana when he saw a man lying on the highway waving for him to stop.
