Mining machine runners were forced to suffer fifty to seventy five percent reduction in wages when they ceased cutting coul for men to load and began cutting It for machines to load. In short, the machine runner that made 20.-01 to J25 00 per day vas forced to accept $10.50 per day and work at break-neck speed like a galley slave. Of course, this favored few were left on the Job at a wage which ninw any ordinary wolkl'u- man would appreciate. But one shudders with honor when he looks nhonl the community and sees the nrMt army of once, prosperous citizens who were able to go in a coal mine and earn from twelve to fifteen dollars per day, but because of ihis favoritism In the mining Industry are working on relief subjects of charity and of pity. At this time there is a move on foot, by these labor fakers, to obtain positions for these former miners at the prevailing wage of fifty cents per hour on W. P. A. leading them to believe they are their friends. The Workers Alliance has resolved itself to a program, likewise of favoritism, which brought this community to its knees. Xow, 'et this be understood, we have never hesitated to work In the interest of all workers, and we are not going to do so in the future. We make no secret of our disapproval of the recent so-called advance in wages which was granted to the W. P. A. workers, but we do object when 'h; men who fought the battles, attended tbe meeting, and paid from their meagre wages tbe nickels, dimes and quarters that financed the struggle, only to find that Ihey were to receive an advance of ?4.0n, when non-participants in the higher brackets, namely tbe 163.00 group, were to receive $6.00.

Other states may be doing the same thing but it is worth noting thet Luther A. Richmond, state supervisor of music, has set up a five-year plan in Virginia, designed to give pupils in every graded school personal experience with music in the hope that this will develop a feeling for music and make the pupils ready for more extensive training. The reason we call attention to the Virginia plan is that there are communities in the United States which are of the opinion that 11!) H. SI h 81.. Clinton. Indiana. Kriltor of The Ilally Clintonlnn: Dear Sir: In further reply to the false ac-ensation made in your paper of Friday, November 13th. 19.16. We are asking you for the privilege of making further statement in regard to Workers Alliance. Inasmuch as the accusation was1 made by a man who claimed to be a member of the Workers Alliance, (John P. Smith), we feel that We are entitled to this courtesy. Not that we have any apology to offer for our conduct as members of The Workers Alliance, or any other organization. Our record in behalf of the unemployed workers of this community we feel Is sufficient for any self-respecting American citizen to stand on. It Is no secret that we have not been in strict accord with the policies of Tie Workers Alliance In recent months, and for this we believe we have a very good reason. At the inception of The Workers Alliance, we were very enthusiastic about its program for the simple reason that It proclaimed lo champion the cause of not only the unemployed workers, hut the promotion of a program thai mould result in a beneficial way to the entire community. But suffice to say we have long since known that the above was too much to hope for. and as proof of this, we cite you to the recent five point program, with not a thing to offer for the direct relief worker, but an attempt to advance the W. P. A. work any music in the public schools involves a needless and foolish ex ' tfJM pense. llose tne winoow, Lriana. Geneve! va now coughed fretfully. Diana did aa she was told. She looked with compunction at her mother. Genevieve waa aa thin. Her cheek-bones stood out sharply In her beautiful face. "The wanner climate win snit yoo, darling. Yon look a if a puff of wind would blow you away." "Dr. Woodhouse said it was best for me to get out of the cold of New York this winter," Genevieve admitted. Diana looked anxious. "I was so busy thinking about my sifly career that I" 'Oh, I'm all right, Diana, The main point is that your ankle's strong again, and you're fit to tackle this big opportunity." It grew monotonous on the train. Genevieve alept a great deal. Diana read, but the thought of Roger came between her and the printed page. She found herself staring out of the window, thinking and dreaming of him, boor after hour. The day passed. Two days. Neither of them bad talked to any of their fellow passengers. Diana would have liked to break the monotony by meeting someone from tha movies, for on this train It was l j, I Iff yfvn ter group attended a meeting, or paid a single cent toward the financial support of the organization. "See you again," the young man half rose and nodded to them pleasantly as they departed. A FIGHTING CANCER SUCCESSFULLY If early records are to be believed, the human race has contended with cancer for more than five thousand years and the mys terious malady remains beyond the control of modern medical science. There are. however, a few hopeful signs that the toll of this fatal affliction is being checked, if not lowered. Figure, of a prominent life insurance company indicate that no more persons are dying from cancer than 25 years ago although better diagnosis has caused more recorded cases of cancer. Then there is the hope held out to sufferers that early discovery of cancerous symptoms, followed by prompt treatment, will, in many cases, lead to complete recovery. Men and women should carefully guard against ignoring unexplainable lumps, scores, etc., and consult physicians and surgeons promptly. You can't do much to save the I 30.000 annual cancer victims in the. United States but you can do a lot to prevent being one of them or to save your family from suffering and death. obvious there were plenty of mo An km. kMt rith hr career, make "Who Is? Who'a he'?"

Don't misunderstand us. in common with all other good citizens, we would like to see the pay and working conditions of the W. P. A. worker advanced far beyond his fondest dreams. But the Workers Alliance., as we understand It. and we are sure we do. is an organization composed of unemployed workers and when any organization ceases to function In behalf of all of its members it faiiB of its true purpose and only becomes the instrument of favoritism, and this vicious monster Is responsible for all of the evils that beset this community today. We have not hesitated to attack it in the past, and we will not in the future. It was favoritism in the raining industry which created every unem "Hollywood bound?" he ques registered.
