More Than a Day OH To most of us a national holiday ot i non-religious character is simply a day off. Few attend any public ceremony ' which has to do with the origin or ^ meaning of the event. And it is a snfc ' guess that a 'majority doesn't even give a private thought to Unit, origin ' or meaning. t This is particularly true of the ', Fourth of July. Millions of Americans will be devoting the day to enjoyment !• of life and pursuit of happiness in a t free land. Many of them, pcrlmps, will , be vaguely thankful that tlicy have a , job to get away from today and go back to next week. But how many will give any thought to the occasion which this holiday celebrates? \Ve are enjoying the blessings of life, 'liberty and the pursuit of happiness Uoday because, 171 years :ip,o, 50 delegates to the American Continental Congress signed a Declaration, in the 'midst of a precarious revolution, which stated that-tlf^jispjblessiifgs are'Uhe Aiii- alienable rights of all men.' \ We are enjoying them because, 13 years later, the government /if the United States began functioning under a Constitution in which those rights and blessings were guaranteed by law. Nor is that all. We are enjoypg life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness because millions of American's have fought and hundreds of IhousfuiMi 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. But. 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 unalienable rights of men are denied or destroyed elsewhere. This is not to advocate making ;\ solemn holiday of the Fourth of .July. All the fun and fireworks are fittiiiK to the occasion. But at the same lime we might ask ourselves if, as citizens 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. ment is for life. They are the courts of last resort so far aa the law vhich 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 is iwlitics 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 in different. The President and his assistants and the members of Congress are subject, rightly, to a sharp'insi>ection and criticism 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 in done competently. But sometimes tlris criticism gets out of hand. We have seen Mr. Petrillo refuse a request made by Mr. Roosnvelt 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. Petrillo and Mr. Lewis flout the- authority of Congress and invite le action by the government. As a result Congress has enacted a new labor law intended to curb siifh actions. Immediately the country hint seen a widespread "spontaneous" anil "wildcat" .strikes by coal miners in defiance of this law. It is all very well for Mr. Petrillo to say, "The Supreme Court has spoken, and I bow to its dictates." That is commendable. Hut he and some oilier heads of unions might well recall that the Supreme Court is only one of three equal and ecfuully 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 tin act of the people's government weakens the people's government r- .itself. Such, defiance may be \vitliin ;' the law. But it is rebellion, not criticism.

(NBA) — lii;|iesl point of debate among uvyers studying (he new government about $180.000.

AN'OTIIFU FLECTION, how lartley Labor Law oiirts can frame an Injunction lop the eoal Industry tie-up now hreatened. i The courts can't compel anyone o work If he doesn't want to. The Constitution says so. And the cpn- ract between the United the'voted against accepting, within the-MOKK DELAY Mine to I in xt five days the attorney sene- nl would have to ask the courts o dissolve the injunction. Thus !10 lays otter the injunction, was first ;runted the miners would be free ,o KO out on strike attain. The Tafl-Hnrlley law would then Workers Union and the mine owners ended 'June 30. So the courts cun't order the miners to go back to work under previous working conditions as to hotirs and pay. : But' assume for Hie sake of argument that the courts can set around these obstacles by dictntini! llic terms of. a new contract of the judges' own devising or by dcrlug the miners to return to work under terms of the expire! Krug-'Lewis contract. Under the Taft-Hartlcy law thl: injunction may run for only & days, while hbor and manauemen try to make n new contract. At the end o( fiO days the Pros- ident could call back his 'Board o lucwlry. This 'Board would the make uuallc the employer's lar nftler ot settlement within 15 days the National Labor Relatwns'Boaid would have to conduct an election to see If n majority of the em- ployes wanted to accept this final offer. This election would cost' the require the 'President to report the situation to Congress. If Congress didn't happen to be in session at that time—say about Oct. 1—no- bcdv seems to know just what would happen. At, this point, suppose the mine owners decided'to try lo break the strike. The owners could ask their old employes to return, to work. If the old employes didn't choose to jo so the mine operator could hire rtcw workers and the miners who didn't come back to work would lose, their rights. •With a new working force the employers would be free to break nV'ay from the industry-wide bar- gniuiiiK agreements formerly signed with John L. Lewis. Mine owners might also try to break away from the union shim, which quires all employes to join But suppose that the new em- ployes got together in a new local unio'i of the United Mine Workers and decided to bargain. Since' the United Mine Workers Union had not been certified bargaining agent under the Taft- Harllcv 'Act, the first step would be to hold another NLH.B elertion This would take another month. First the union 'would h.ive lo legister with the . Secretary of Labor under the Taft-Hartley Ac provisions. The union would havi lo certify that none of its officer was a Communist, file full finan cinl reports, and certify that co pies had been furnished all it members.

In the past many hospitals did not admit alcoholics, but more of them are doing so now as they appreciate that alcoholism Is un illness. In delirium tremens treatment alcohol should be stopped at once as gradual withdrawal is not advisable. Drugs arc 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 do .something desperate in order to escape. injections of glucose and insulin may be life .saving. Patients usually have not. been eating tot' some time, and the body is in a dangerous state. As the putienl quiets down, salt water can be injected by vein to correct the dehydration.

Even John L. Lewis.held his oratorkal tongue when the high court 'decided against' Him a few months;ago. Many reasons for this deep respect are evident.

Jfress Staff Correspondent) 1 WASHINGTON, July 3. IUP>— .. A roly-iixjly. humpty-dumpty look- - ing little fellow was denouncing : John L. Lewis as the villain— , double-dyed —behind the oil shortage. .* And I was silling there In aii-- conditloned comfort, thinking about own crisis once in a town where re Was no gasoline for sale. If , your vacation pians this summer involve an automobile and the Mid- ; west, you'd probably be well-advised : to read all of this dispatch. The fuel shortage expected Ihis / Winter, and also blamed by the s government on Eyebrows Lewis, we can worry about later, when it's cooler. Mut:h cooler, said Max W. bit!!, (he Mr. Pive-by-Pive director of the Interior Department's Oil and Gas Division. He said Eye- 'cro'.vs clipped his fellow Americans going anil 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 urove that Lewis has frichlened 53,030 householders a month into replacing their coal furnaces with oil burners. That was bad enough. Bull add- rd, but old cyrbrcws' men kepi; having strikes. This cut down the steel supplv until the oil and gas lolks couldn't get enough piue to supply their new customers. Some other things are enteritis into the inildup, too, and if you'll take a ona breath for a long sentence. I'll •xulnin the situation in Ball's own words: "If there arc no further oil jlrikes which have already cost us 13.000.0CO barrels' this year Hie 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 strike, and if there is no railroad strike, and above all if we ilon'i. hiivrs too severe r-. winter, we'll yet by with nothing more than sixit shortages, but if too many of these things go wrong the shortage may be severe." .Bill told me House Interstate and Foreign Commerce Committee that the stories of 'Russian gasoline purchases in California being responsible for the shortage add up to so 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. Midwfsterners. 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'tlio, process) teg- Sing for gasoline. He- s:iid this A'ou't be fun. If ever a fcilow lias in all-gone feeling it's wheu he's a strange town, where every filling station is fresh out of gas. This happened to me in Saltill.t. Mexico. There I was and there I thought I'd have to slay and maybe go into the scrape business. In all Saltillo there wasn't a drop of gasoline on sale. The thing to do in a case like this is stroll into a saloon and tell your troubles to the bartender. So the birkeep said he'd find a comprador, who turned out to be » young fellow with a wheelbarrow. The comprador said Td need to wait until dant and. because of the risks. I'd have to pay well.
