It.will help adver- ' |ise thp, only 'contest of its kind in the world and will reflect credit on ihu town ! in wh'ich it was originated. '_ Mayor, Jackson has, proclaimed a i partial holiday during hours, of the con• tesVahcl has urged that-local business cohcerns close in time for.their cm- p%ecs to witness the contest from slirt to finish. / . ^Most important is that the spectators ' be; on hand Before. 10 o'clock so that they may'see'the;-pickers, at the head. of!their rows, and witness the starting aslthe newsreel cameramen begin their task. t Those ,\\-tw go, early, also will have thS. aflyahtaVe of;;f ree.'admission, siiicc th^ f&jrgrqunfls -will be open without charge' during Ihe rhorning, but spec• talois who go in the afternoon must pa}' an admission charge. The Indispensable Mrv-11. > •iBy subtle remarks -dropped here and there, John L. Lewis lias indicated thfE he feels scant enthusiasm for , President Roosevelt's re-election. He has even hinted guardedly that he considers'-the present administration's attitude toward the United Mine Workers downright ••unfriendly. 'But Mr. Lewis hasn't attacked Mr. Roosevelt from the "indispensable man" angle.'.No sir, not he. Mr. Lewis may be'said to have created the indispensable man—in-W's own image. He lias been indispensable to the UMW for 24 ye'ars, man and boy. And'during that time he has developed a magnificent technique for slapping down anyone who suggests, that he isn't. ' "One" Ray Edminulson," as Mr. Le\vis called him, was so bold as to challenge this indispensibality at the UMW's biennial "convention in Cincin: nali.' In fact, he was doubly audacious. -" Not'only did he want to run for Mr. Lewis's office," but he also Favored some } |etical idea: eailed autonomy. This i»-1 ild allow members in 21 of the unjon's 31 districts lo choose their own officers, a privilege which Mr. Lewis in . hi| wisdom has long denied them. I Mr. Edmundson called a caucus of hia followers early in the convention. Mr. Lewis sent around - some of'*his . strong-knuckled boys to break it up. They did. This apparently was just to remind the Edmun'dson boys was they' who were' expendable and Mr. Lewis who was still indispensable. Later, in a more orthodox session, Mr. Lewis made a speech. He came.right out and told the delegates that Mr. Hoosevclt, Mr. Hillmim and Mr. Brow- dcr had "hired a man ' to come down here and dethrone the old man." King John doesn't dethrone easy. Soon afterward the convention, in the person of Mr. Lewis, ruled that "said Edmnndson" was-not a member in good standing, could not be seated as a delegate, and thus of course could not possibly run for president. The convention, in the person of Mr. Lewis, also saw to it that his term of office and that of other international officers was changed from two years to four. Also there was a little matter of holding conventions every four years now instead of two. This will help keep the boys from getting any restless ideas of changing horses every 20 or 30 years. And so it went. Resolutions anil business droned along, usually without discussion. ' ' . ' One delegate complained that he and his fellows couldn't follow the committee reports because they were read by number, >d suggested some other procedure'.' 1 That was impossible, Mr. Lewis told him, because ."those aren't the rules of the convention.' 1 No -doubt about it, democracy, inaction is a \yonilerful and inspiring thing. And we'll bet some of the boys in the UMW miss it.

As long as it survives, the nations the Germans are determined to subdue will never resign themselves to Gernan domination. And we must draw the logical conclusions from our knowledge, calmly but quickly. As lale as the summer ot 1043, German propaganda still triumphed in the belief of an appalling number 01 Americans and Britishers that the mistakes of the Versailles Treaty fathered the German aggressive spirit which brought about the Second World War. Certainly the Treaty of Ver- 'saillcs was far from perfect. Certainly, too, the sufferings of the German people were intense. But Von Hindcnburg, the Kaiser and LucTendorffi confer on a point of strategy in World War T.
