Another 'From Me to You' Letter from Harry Fritzius DICTATORS History is almost monotonous In It's repetition of the downfall and it's cause, of Dictators. A Dictator, lo live and rclain his |X>wer lo rule the lives of others, must continually take from others and glvn to those who supply his power. When that time comes, and come it must eventually, when the group from which he lakes are til-roused sufficiently, they will refuse lo be made the "goats" any longer, regardless ot the pressure exerted. When Ihis happens and the erstwhile Dictator musl needs go before his greedy followers cmpty-lmndcd. Ihey will, as Ihey always have, turn upon him, forgetting all past favors and our one-time, loud-talking, vain and egotistical Dictator stands helpless and shorn., beset upon all sides, not only by Ihose whom he has misused In his thirst for power, but those also who, so Ions as it was profitable to them, served him with lip-service and clothed him wilh Ihe power of Iheir numbers. One of the tragedies of the rise and fall of a Dictator is that those who have, sometimes innocently, followed his leadership, finally assume many of his characteristics including the thirst for more and more power over the lives of Iheir fcllowman and at his expense. When the "iron will" of their leader crashes lo earth from crumbling feet of clay, his followers nnd themselves crashing earthward with him and find to their dismay lhat they must share his stigma and shame before the world at large and Ihose who have been wronged in particular. In Ihe case of our labor Unions, it seems almost unbelievable that after years of honorable, peaceful, and intelligent progress toward the goal of equitable pay, reasonable hours, child welfare and batter living standards. — lhat after the notable progress made, and made with the well-wishes and even fond approval of the' American people us a whole — it seems unbelievable that they would so far forget their American heritage of freedom to risk losing all which Ihey had attained, by blindly following a few blalanl rabble-rousing, unscrupulous men. A fair and unbiased appraisal of the record of' .1. L. Lewis will convince the most ardent skeptic that Lewis has never had the best interests of labor as a whole, nor his miners in particular, at heart. Also his record will plainly show that'he has no compunction whatever against double-crossing his closest friend, when necessary m his own vain thirst for power. Witness his treatment of his friend Phillip Murray Murray had always served him faithfully. In 1D36 Lewis spent $500,000.00 of his miners money to help re-elect Franklin Roosevelt but in 194Q because he was a poor guesser. re : nouncecl "Roosevelt nnd threw his Dictatorial might to Wendell Willkie He was forced, because of this poor guessing to turn the C I O presidency over to Murray. Murray had never harmed him but re«ardless of his loyalty and service, Lewis, out of pure ven- vcance in 1941 called out 53.000 mine workers and wrecked Ihe Mediation Board which Roosevelt had set up to keep labor at neaci- while our country readied ilself for war. In doing this he split'labor apart. He so stirred up Congress that that, body was ready and willing to sabotage Naliom.1 Policy just to punish John' L lewis. All this, for pure spite! He was willing lo sacrifice all labor including his own miners, because Murray through Lewis s own bad judgment bad replaced him ns heart of U\e GI.O.! Vain in 1943, for a period of eight months. Lewis Iroubled lh<; mtion with coal strikes,' split the administration, humiliated Frinklin Roosevelt and virtually wrecked the War:Labor Board. ' -is'hc had wrecked the Mediation Board. His gains for his miners were so small as to be'negligible. In Ibis action, Lewis so incensed Congress thr.t he was Ihe one man directly responsible for Continuous Sho\vs Evcvy Day RI>T Otrirc Oncti- 1:41 Show Start* 2:M LISTEN* TO KLC'N :<W a.m. I a MB u.m. 4:39 p.m. Last Time Today KITTY with Puulclie Goriilaril and Kay Mlllancl Paramount News & Selected Shorts Conlinunus Showing; Everyday Sninrdav NOTORIOUS JAP TRAITRESS KIDNAPPED BY ESCAPED Gl! till* 'IM-IKONAS A PmiMiDl MIK ijcrlal: "Forest Hangers" Nu.

MARY'S wilh -' '--Bing "^ftrosby fe Ihgfid Bcrg- mann lowln" such men as Lewis, labor has just about reached the precipice °The whole nation, including Congress is in a mood now. (and? riKlitly so) to judge labor as a whole, as weighed in the balance and found wanting and to give the final push which will send it along wilh its diclalors over the precipice into an oblivion which will lose for it the hard won victories of years of planning and orrnniKntion. Labor should learn along wilh its diclators this ancient gem of wisdom:' "O, it is excellent to hnve > a giants strength but it is tyrannous to use it like a giant. . .'
