Few attend any public ceremony ' which has to do with the origin or , meaning; of the event. And it is a sale guess that a majority doesn't even give, a private thought to that origin or meaning. ^ This is particularly true or the Fourth of July- Millions ol' Americans • will be devoting the day to enjoyment of life and pursuit of happiness in a 5 free 'land. Many of them, pcrhapd, will } be vaguely thankful that they have a \ job to get away from today and gn •" back; to next week. But how many will give any thought to the occasion which this holiday celebrates? We are enjoying the blessings of life, -liberty and the pursuit of happiness = today because, 171 years afio, 50 delegates to the American Continental Congress signed a Declaration, in the ' midst of a precarious involution, which stated that-tlt^fe^.rjlessirigs are alienable rights 'of nil men.' We are enjoying them because. 13 years later, the government f>( the United States began fi|nctlonint under a Constitution in which those rights and blessings were guaranteed by law. Nor is that all. We arc enjoying life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness because millions of Americans have fought and hundreds of thousarfd^ have died to defend those rights, and because there have always been American citizens who were willing to devote a part of their energies to protecting them and making them more inclusive. Two years ago millions of Americans again were fighting to preserve those rights against a serious threat to their continuance. Today that danger is past. Rut threats will arise again so long as Americans as a nation, passive, take the blessings of liberty for granted, or misuse them, or remain indifferent when the unalicnable rights of men are denied or destroyed elsewhere. This is not to advocate making a solemn holiday of the Fourth of July. All the fun and fireworks are fitting to the occasion. But at the same time we might ask ourselves if, as citi'/.ens and individuals, we are truly worthy of our legacy of freedom, and if, as we enjoy that legacy, we are doing anything to increase and insure it. i: Caesar Bows ment is for life. They are the courts o£ last resort so far as the law which they are considering in concerned. The justices, to be sure, are human. They have their differences, occasionally open and bitter ones. Some of these differences are political, though it in politics on a high plane. Yet there are usually enough justices of high intelligence and high principle on the bench at any time to merit the veneration which the Supreme Court receives. With the other two branches of government it is different. The President and his assistants and the members of Congress are subject, rightly, lo a sharp'inspection and criliciiim of their Works, The executive and the legislators are elected and paid by the people to do a job. Their employers have a right to see that the job is done competently. But' sometimes tlris criticism gets" out of hand. We have seen Mr. Petrillo refuse a request made by Mr. Roosevelt and we have seen A. F. Whitney defy Mr. Truman, though both Presidents were obviously acting in the people's best interests. We have seen Mr. L'eU'illo and Mr. Lewis flout the authority of Congress and invite lefjal action by the government. As a result Congress has enacted a new labor law intended to curb stic'li actions. Immediately the country lia:; seen a widespread "spontaneous" anil "wildcat" strikes by coal miners in defiance of thin law. It is all jyery well for Mr. Petrillo to say, "The Supreme Court has jjpok" en, and [ bow lo its dictates." That is commendable. But he and some other heads of unions might well recall that the Supreme Court is only one of three equal and eq*imlly important branches of government. When Congress passes a law, or the Executive: Department enforces it, or the Judicial Department judges it, the government has spoken in each case. If the law is unjust it can be amended or nullified. Hut this immediate defiance by one group of an act of the people's government weakens the people's government - itself. Such defiance may be within Ihe law. But it is rebellion, not criticism. Lewis Steals Nation's Coal Then Ties Up Steel for Oil Pipelines Th« DOCTOR SAYS By WII.UAM A. O'BRIKN. M. I).

The noise sure rooted me." —ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT courts c:in frame an injunction to stop the coal industry tie-up now threatened. The courts can't compel, anyone lo work if lie doesn't want to. The Constitution says so. And the contract between the United Mine Workers Union and the mine owners ended 'June 30. So the courts cnn't order the miners to go back lo work under previous working conditions us lo hours and pay. But 5 otsume for the sake of argument that the courts can get ground these obstacles by diclfllhig Ux> terms of. a new contract of the judges' own devising or by ordering the miners to return to work under terirs of the expired Krug-Lewis contract. Under the Tart-Hartley law this injunction may run for only GO days, while labor and management try to make a new contract. At, the end o( 03 .days the President could call buck his 'Board of Inouiry. This 'Board would then make public the employer's last nftler of settlement within 15 days the Nationi! Labor Relations Board would have to conduct an election to .see if n majority of the em- ployes wanted lo accept this final offer. This election would cr>sl' the mxt five days the attorney genc-\ But suppose that the new em- rnl would have to ask the courts ployes got together in ;> new local to dissolve the injunction. Thus Ot) 'clays ofler the injunclioii was first granted 1 the miners would be free to go out on strike again. The Taft-Harlley law would then require the 'President to report thO' situation to Congress. If Congress 'didn't happen to be in session at that lime—say about Oct. 1—no- bodv seems to know jnst what would happen. At this point, suppose the mine rtwners decided-to try to break the strike. Thu owners could ask their oid employes lo return to work. If ftie old employes didn't choose to ijo so the mine operator could hire rtew workers and the miners who didn't come back to work would lose their rights. •With n new working force Ihe employers would be free to brea'k riway from the industry-wide bargaining agreements formerly signed with John L. Lewis. Mine owners might also try to break i from the union shop, which requires nil employes to join the union. These conditions would put the coal industry on an open-shop ba- union of the United Mine Workers and decided lo bargain. Since the United Mine Workers Union had not been certified bargaining agent under the Taft- Hartley Act. the first step woulc to hold another NLRB election This would take another month. First the union 'would have to icgister with the Secretary of La bor under the Tad-Hartley Ac provisions. The union would hav to certify Unit none of its officer was a Communist, tile full finau cial reparts, and certify that pies had been furnished all it mernfcnrs. The the union would have t pel 30 per cent of Ihe employes of the unit- to sign petitions designat-i ing the United Mine Workers Union us bargaining agent. '< In the meantime, a lot of secondary issues would have to be settled: status of foremen, supervisor',- employes, professional em- cinergency. Unless proper treatment Is given promptly, death may result. The acute elfects of alcohol on the nervous system tend to disappear when drinking is stopped. As patient needs help during this critical period, hospital care and good nursing are important. In the past many hospitals did not admit alcoholics, but more of them are doing so now us they appreciate that alcoholism Is :in illness. In delirium tremens treatment alcohol should be stopped at once as gradual withdrawal Is not advisable. Drugs are given to produce sleep and to relax the patient while this is done. Many of them are .so afraid of the things they see and hear that they may try to tlo somelhinEj desperate in order to escape. Injections of glucose and insulin may be life .saving, Patients usually have not been eating for some time, and the budy is in a dangerous state. As the pnlient (inlets down, salt water can be injected by vein to correct the dehydration. Thiamin chloride and nicoliiiic acid are given in large doses to correct the deficiency state which results from starvation. DISCHARGED TOO SOON Patients with delirium tremens should he kept in a warm bed in quiet place. The room should eith- - be brightly lighted or in total arkncss in order to avoid shadmvs s they may cause cause serious am. Attendants should be kind, ympathetic, and understanding ince patients experience great re- lorse when recovery begins.

Nor was this the only example of recent memory. At the height of his popularity President Roosevelt found that a loyal ami heavily Democratic Congress —and the people who elected it — would not go along with him on the so-called "court packing plan." Even John L. Lewis held his oratorical tongue when the high 'court' 'decided against him a few months ago. Many- reasons for this deep respect are evident. The Supreme Court is, in itieory and usually in fact, above the hurly-burly of politics. Its members are appointed, not elected, and the appoint- Any smart girl can Ret the man she wants, declares a \\rilnr.

The fuel shortage expected this Winter, and also blamed by the government on Eyebrows Lc'Ais, we can worry about later, when It's cooler. Much cooler, said Max W. Ball, the Mr. Pive-by-Five director of the Interior Dcparlment's Oil and Gas Division. He said Eye- trows clipped his fellow Americans going and coming, "The best salesman the oil business ever had is John L. Lewis." he "continued. "With his coal strikes and his threats of strikes he has scared more people into using oil burners than a generation of oil salesmen could." The rosy-faced Ball, one of America's distinguished geologists, brought along the figures to Drove that Lewis has frightened 53.030 householders a month into replacing their coal furnaces with oil burners. That was bad enough, Ball added, but old cyebrcws' men kept having strikes. This cut down the steel supply until the oil and gas folks couldn't get enough pipe to supply their new customers. Some other things are entering into the buildup, too. and if you'll take a Ions breath for a long sentence, I'll explain the situation in Ball's own If there are no further oil jtrikes which have already cost us 13.000.000 barrels' this year (he said), and If there's no prolonged coal strike, and if this shipyard > strike doesn't tie up too many tinkers, and if there's no steel trike. and ir there is no railroad strike, and above all it we don't, have too severe r. winler. we'll get by with nothing more than Mint shortages, but if too many of these things go wrong the shortage may bo severe." >B:ill told Hie House Interstate nnd Foreign Commerce Committee that the stories of Russian gasoline purchases in California beinsr responsible for the shortage add up to no much nonsense. He said the Russians were buying one-eighth of one per cent of the total oil output, or about a half of- one day's production. Midwesterners. he said, cannot escape the gasoline pinch. It is upon 'em now. Many a motorist will go from filling station to filling station (praying that his motor won't go dead in the prp^essl begging for gasoline. He slid this won't be fun. If ever a fellow has an all-pone -feeling it's when he's in a strange town, where every filling station is fresh out of gas. This happened to me in Saltilln. Mexico.
