And, as Dr. Morgan suggests, before we can atUinit we must iintl a new nient»l attitude. We must, somehow, got t))js "willjiujness to share tlie common lot and progress only as the common lot progresses." Only in that wny can we make of thu New Deal anything more than tin empty .set of slogans. Vertical or Horizontal? In declaring for vertical unions In industry, Gen. Hugh Johnson would seem to have loused himself blithely into the most difficult pai-l of our whole dilVicull labor .situation. American labor organization has not, in most instances, proceeded along vertical lines. The overwhelming majorily of our unions arc craft unions. They extend horizontally, not vertically. One union, that is to say, may have locals in automobile plants nnd in boiler factories, in .small machine shops and in shipyards; and the stronger it is, the more militant its leadership, the harder it is- apt to be to change it. Plenty of people have remarked that under the NKA the vertical union presents ii much more logical way of approach to the task of miioni/ation. lint union leaders themselves are exceedingly reluctant to admit this point, and by espousing it publicly General Johnson has let himself in for a great deal of very warm argument. An International Affair The revelations •miidc by UK; Jjemilu muliilioiift investigating commiltee have tome so rapidly thai the average citi- •J.m is probably pretty confused. Kul, in his-confusion, he is unquestionably developing n very strong resentment against the men who make vast lor- tttiies out of selling., the instruments of death; and if, in the coming session,of'' Congress, there should be a /strong move for nationalization ,of ''the arms traffic, it would liiirdjy^c surprising. Just how sucli^ogi-Hni wou |,i work out, however 1 ," in a world whore other 'mUqws'(..ontimi'e to permit (he immi- Jl'Ons trade to lie in private hiintls, " is another question, It, i s possible that negotiations with foreign capitals would have to precede, any such step. r-'or one thing that the investigation has shown clearly is that the muni- lions trade is an international affair. It may be that only joint international action can put it under proper restraints.
