M « i N ST. ;' XXVIII i r pHERE was a lot of conversa- * lion, subdued at first, but growing louder, mostly about the fact that the raise in hourly pay had not been mentioned by any of the speakers at the mass meeting. One group discussed It more emphatically than the others and the crowd began to collect there. In the center of the malcontents was Max Lengel. "Where do the brass hats get the idea that a pin to wear on your overalls-would take the place of money?" he asked, and waited for a low growl from his frjends to reassure him. "Why should we work to meet a deadline if we don't get anything out ot It? M "Tf we strike the governmen! will take over the yards," pointed out one of the older hands. "Who said anything about strike?" said Max. "There's a better way and we all know whai it is. All we got (o dp. is turn ou 1 a little less instead of a little more They'll get the idea quick enough. 1 He laughed. "You mean a slowdown?" Max shrugged. "It don't mattei what you call it. We can »how them guys in the swivel chairs tha we ain't in this for our health any more than they are. They ge theirs, don't they? You've heart about cost plus 10 per cent, haven' you?" . . • . . . , s Fergus Mahoney, editor ot th Westw'aygo News, was a tin in th crowd and, Jike everyone else, h had been attracted to the group around Max. His son, Oscar, on of Eddie's squad, was with him Fergus was an important man the community, and h* took hand in the discussion. "Listen here, my friends'," h said in an authoritative tone', "yo mustn't do anything hasty." "We won't/' said Max. "That* the whole idea. Well do every thing slow."

H Ktrslen Peterson ' asked Vfiirgie Lou and the women who were near her. "Why does he say we are patriots when almost we are traitors? Is everybody afraid? Why doesn't someone tell the ruth?" She looked around pile ously as if (or help. Carl stood righl behind her but ic could do nothing for her~ "The only one who could tel -hose phonies whore to head in,' said Joe cynically, "is somebody who had nothing to lose.** "My wife has nothing to lose/ id Carl simply. "Time has already slipped a little in her fin gers." "You mean you don't mind L she gets hurt?" 'No. She wouldn't mind it ihe could help." Okay, C*rl. Here. she goes Come on, you G.I.'s, gather 'round." Kirs ten didn't know quite wh she climbed iip on the platforn recently vacated by ^the visitin admiral and his hosts^Neither di she know that surrounding her were many unseen uniformec fighting men. The working crew didn't pa any attention .to her at first. The were too busy building up the! private petty grievance. But when Kirsten said "Atten tion!" in a voice that was no les compelling th a n the cry of Valkyrie, everyone sputtered do and'txirned to'her. Kirsten was in her work clothes onde hair under • kerchief but the platform above the crowd towered huge and cold and vely like a statue of Minerva. ie might have been the figure- cad on a ship, outward bound, ,cing releiillessly forward. ''What/' she said in a voice that ill rang as If there were a sym- lonic orchestra under it, "what re you Americans thinking of? ow can we slow down as long s there is a' single prisoner in he hands of the etiemy? Haven't ou heard what happened and r hat Is still happening to th* men ho fought the battle of Bataan? TC can't slow down. Instead we mat hurry faster and faster! 'hose prisoners are dying while r-e tnlk about how much work /e will do for a dollar." > Kirsten paused. Her audienc* tlrred uneasily. Max spoke. "Girlie, you don't know what ou're talking about. Pipe down." • • • 5TIRSTEN paid no attention to Max. "I know that most of pou feel (he same way I do—you inly wish there was more you lould do in the 24 hours of every ingle day. But just a (ew people alk about getting more money or else they will work less. And we istent That's the terrible thing to do. We listen! And they make so much talk—those few people- hat we begin to feel that every- Ktdy is thinking the same way. The soldiers, wherever they are, iear about such talk and they think we are all like that. It makes them sick and afraid— afraid that when they come homt !hey will hate even their own people. And all because we let a few lazy and greedy people s»y things for us that we do not really mean." "Shut her up! She's nuts. AH we wariV- icVfour cents-more per hour." Kirsten raised her voice. "When somebody is going to stick a bayonet in you, is it a good time to ask how much you'll get per hour for trying to stop him?" Old hands who, under ordinary conditions, were shyly silent and retiring, began to get their dander up. A lot of the 1 workers pushed nearer to the platform where Kirsten was .standing.
