No one anticipated a Congress which would spend nine months of the year in balking P v D/R. and getting nothing done. A prediction that John Lewis and O. I. O. would win the General Motors and Chrysler strikes, and wangle agreements and union recognition from U. S. Steel would have seemed a pipe-dream. Neutrality laws were expected to preserve us from threat of war. And no one supposed 1937 would wind up with Rooseielt taking his worrt'' drubbing to date on the wage-pour bill, and with a new depression which already has thrown 2,000,000 more persons but of work. 9ut you can't duck 1938, so here .goes.
