The factory and mill workers are the most. Important, .iiuglc lac- tor In Ohio's politics. Two-thirds of Hie tolal population of the state live in Ihe triangle Urn makes up (lie northeastern portion of the stale—to the cast and north of an Imaginary line drawn from Toledo to Marietta, on the Cliio River. In these industrial cities of Toledo,. Cleveland, Aknm, Ca'.',- tbn and Yoniaslown, labor Is dominant. 100% N CW Dealers I drove to tlte northeast corner ol Canton to find mil for myself just what labor was thinking aljout. Across the street from Hie Cnnton Stamping mid Enameling Company plant a <loz:n or so men were loafim; about. Inside an urcialritcd, ramshackle corner building three or Jour wo- inen were washing dislics; they had just fed the pickets keeping grnrd. over the closed and locke.-l factory. Some 550 men and \voai- en had been cut on strike since April 29lh. This afternoon they would vote as lo whether they would accept the company's offer and go back to wort:. Two of the dozen men were Cougliliniles—but they -were .not point' to follow their hero inta the Lcmke camp. They would veto fcr Roosevelt for president. The others were for Roosevelt. A youthful i-tiion organizer led me ever, to..thc.-Iipumaman Hall, vhcie lire rren 'anti >-om»n were al:r!'t l.n vote on r?ti;rnir.'j to work. There .i:i:st have Ijren 150 I scattered in groups nrounil the 4 big hall. My story might soi'.'id .more plausible If T could report lhat I found several Lanrtoi'i vot- ' ers in the crowd—but I didn't find a single one. In broken dialects, in sturdy English', . and in soft drawls, men-.and women alik? pronounced over and over ngnln the name of Roosevelt. Back on the main stem of Canton, the proprietor of a liny ha- bcrdnsliery shop said: "1 must sly I can't see how Roosevelt could'a done much more thnn he did. The NRA helped us little fellows. I'd say most of the little merchants in this town will vote for Franklin." • "Sil Drum" Strikers I drifted around Akron, Ihe tire town, with an experienced political writer. "Akron • has 36,000 workers In its tire factories." he explained. "Roughly 45 per cent of these workers are how enrolled in the United Rubber Workers. The industry would like to retaliate on the men who are in this industrial union, brt they don't know just how lo do It—and you sec they're making loo much money now for a lockout. Maybe lliey'l] do that along in Scotcm- fcer when business slows up." Over aroi-nd the "gum mines" I talked to a number of workers in the different local union headquarters. One big fellow explained the new "sit down" strike technique to me. "These bosses." he began, "well they ain't so smart as they think they are. They get cvcrvtliing highly Industrialized, and all on the belt or conveyor system—and they dig • their own graves when they do it. A dozen men in the right spot can just sit down and not work, and it throws tire whole factory out of whack. Funny, ain't it, but the more perfectly a plant Is organized the easier it is to stop it?" j My friend, guide and philosopher gave me the rubber background. "The big Goodyear strike tliis spring was actually a case of spontaneous combustion." he said. "Rightly cr. wrongly the men got Hie idea that their working day ELECTRIC & ACETYLENE STORIES IN' - lly 1..S.

Men in one shift in one of the three plants simply walked out a:id at midnight called a meeting and decided to picket Ihe plant. In no time at ail the whole works was shut down. . . Today lillle groups of nun slart. unauthorized slrikes that are very embarrassing to their own- union leaders. The factories settle them, and then try to prove to (he men that it. was not their unicn !:ad- ers who helped them but the management itself. But Ihc unionization gees slowly forward. Even the threat of moving the. factories frcm Akron to ummionfaed communities it not really cficcdve a:iy longer. The United Rubber Workers are right now slarling to carry their union ideas to such difficult and union-resisting centers as Gadsdcn. Alabama." Heap New 'lira I IScncfits But as far as Akron and the lire industry is concerned It is cnly fair to say lhat in no other industry has partially organized labor been Ircaled so generously. I jectlon of Senator Vic Donah' H has its 0 hour day and comparatively high wages. The workers are really fighting only for union recognition and collective bargaining. For an hour I sat with one of Akron's test known political figures, an independent Republican. He had this to say: "I can't figure any way lo defeat Roosevelt In Ohio. Seme 22.000 among the G5,CU> homc-Ovuicis of this one county hnve bcrrowed government money from the HOLC. Washington is giving them plenty of time to pay. Thousands of our dirt farmers received corn-and- hog checks. They're 'getting cash frcm the new erosion and conservation program right now. They're not going to bite the hand that feeds them." • An equally skilled observer in Cleveland lined up Ihe state as follows: "Governor Davey is so unpopular that he may defeat Roosevell In the stale.

Mis dark, shaggy locks and piercing eyes gave him Ihe name of. "Kara George," or Black Gcprgc, and his boldness' invited bath fear and confidence. In. 1801, Kara George led a swelling army of Serbs against the Turkish soldiers and, aided by Russian opposition to Turkey, drove the Ottoman rulers oul ot his country. But as ruthless as vyas the former regime, even more so was thai of Kara George. lie made" himself king and when his own father and brother dared oppose him he killed them. ••But.war' with Russia over, the Moslems returned triumphantly to Serbia and Bln'ck George was forced to flee. Later the Serbs rose again, this lime under Milosh Obrcnovich, a more educalcd and diplomatic leader. Then, in 1817, Black George returned. Alarmed, Milosh informed the Turkish governor, and Kara George was killed. Black George's profile appears with that of Hie last ruler of Serbia, King Peter, on stamps issued ' in 131M and 1918.
