Lewis, forced to call n (nice in hjs war against the United Slates, will yet emerge with substantially what he went after, . If ho loses this fight, it will be the first he has lost.' Always before, when things looked blackest for him, he has .manager! to Koudini 'himself and his mine workers out with pecuniary benefits, whoever might claim the superficial honors. • Whether Lewis or President liooscr veil wins this strike, labor unionism already has lost. Hundreds of unions, rnillions of workers who in no way involved, who respect Labor's pledges against strikes, who would not think of hampering our soldiers and sailors 'and marines by holding up production, 'are victims of Lewis' attitude. In Hawaii, whore the Japanese started this war, American service men are icported to be amaml and infuriated that any man or any union should dare stab tlie United States in fhc back at a time like this. Said Private First Class Ollie Ostrum of Goose Creek, Tex.: "I class this. strike, or any. strike, along with sabo-% tage." Said Sergeant John S. Hanson of Seattle: "I feel no one should exercise the constitutional right to strike ' as long as there is an American soldier laying down his life on a battlefield." * * + Said Corporal Early Peterson of Manhattan,'! Kan., a veteran of the Haltle of Midway: "Anyone who-strikes''in wartime should be put on n battlefield in place of some older man in the service. Strikes are what the enemy wants. Is that what, the American people wai\t,also?" Take it from any man who has faced bullets, shells, bombs and torpedoes for his country, this is how every soldier, sailor, marine and, coast guardsman feels. After World War I there was concern about Uie reaction of veterans in labor matters. It arose directly from bitterness over fat wages paid in war plants while men died for $30 a month "and found." '. * * * After World Wnr II millions of men are going to be demobilized who "will haVe been embittered by the spectacle of John L. Lewis pulling a strike in the mines which supply fuel without which most war plants would have to shut dowii. Their deep anger is certain to slop over against innocent, patriotic unions and workmen. This one incident may go far toward making the Veterans of Worid War II a powerful agency of unreasoning, illogical reaction in labor' matters. Anything John Lewis may have done "i the past to advance the cause of ' workiugmen has been written off the J&YTHEV1LLB'(ABE.); COURIER-NEWS books now. lie has become organixed labor's Number One liability for the future.' ' Ircnch Influence - It was loo tnlich to hope that impressionable American youth could bo Bent into French territory and permit- led to mingle freely with Frenchmen 'without acquiring fun-in hnWls. Air force members in North Africa have formed a .Point Snorkcrs organization., modeled loosely on lh<? Short Snorters. Membership is based upon ability to produce a mustache clearly visible nl 100 feet, and long enough to be waxed noticeably at the extremities and to point toward the candidate's cars. Once initiated into tlie' Point Siiorkc'i's-, the member can not remove his hirsute adornment, except by order of a .superior, until be returns to tlie Slates. There ought to be .some luxuriant spinach patches by that time! Inconceivable in Japan The 'Japanese foreign office organ, • -Nippon Times, is correct in saying that "a direct challenge to governmental "power in. wartime,", such as our coal strike, "is inconceivable in Japan'." In Japan—and also in Germany, in Italy, in the satellite axis countries and the occupied areas,'a challenge to government is inconceivable at any time. In order that wo may never be forced into a condition such that the people can not challenge their government, we must voluntarily waive, for the time being, many of our most cherished rights and privileges. If we insist upon-them now we could Jose them forever. Ity waiving them now, we may safeguard them for (he long future. MONDAY, MAY ,10,-1943' New Worry One danger which Anglo-American diplomats arc .seeking to avert, in connection with the Uusso-Polish dispute, is the creation of a Soviet puppet government in Poland, rivaling Premier Sikorski's governmcnt-in-exilc in London. • , This could cause as^unfpvtmmlq a niixun as Moscow's sponsorship of an independent, discordant military movement in Jugoslavia against the recognized organization of General Miklmil- ovilch. Such a split would be much more harmful than any effort on Hitler's part to find a Polish 'Quisling.'- SO THEY SAY 1 on wonted lo move !o Ihc cmrnlry (o raise vegetables —well, 1 ve seen your friends 1 wives working in their gardens, and you mny ns well understand I'm'not the '.«ardci)in(,'lypel" ' We must d» everything W e cnn to prevent n recurrence or wnv, bill we must renlize Hint we must be prepared to face another wnr.
