Ward •& Co., In Chicago, as Ihls Is written,'has'just refused to accept an order of [seizure from President Roosevelt unless it recognize tire United Retail, Wholesale and Department store Employes' Union us sole bargaln- hig"agenl until a National Labor Relations Board election can be held. Sewell Avery, president and spokesman for Hie company, lias Indicated that it will challenge'' the legality of (he President's order in every way open lo It, nnd holds Dint i any Government effort to take over and operate the company is in complete disregnrd of the Coiislltufion. ^Tlie^ Government sent In troops ntid Avery was ousled. This slnle of affairs Is the result and ' clijnax of a controversy that sent 5000 workers on; strike and later back to work on an order from the President. Tlic order for seizure is based on the allegation of Attorney General Bidnle that the production nnd distribution of n'iteiials needed for the war nre Imperiled, llmt contlnunlion of the dispute might cause work stoppages nt other plants of the company, and thai a bnd example would be set. Considering the tremendous gravity of Government seizure of a company such as Montgomery^ Ward, the' company's own position and Us reasons for resisting n presidential order should be made altogether clear. The company's side is contained In a communication addressed to nil Monlgomerj Waid people. It is signed by Mr. Avery and it goes (is follows: :l; The contract which Wfinls signed nt Chicago in .December, 1942, under duress at the direction of the President, expired Dec. 0, 1943. *2. On Nov. 1C. 1343, Wards told the union itfwoiil'l negotiate n new contract covering five oS 6 the seven bargaining units established at Chicago Waids questioned whether the union represented a majority ot employes in Ihc mail order home and retail store, because less than 20 per cent m those two units were then having unldrf f nu.e*s,checked.'off 'from "wages. 3..-Although-five months have elapsed, the ' union haf refused to show that It !s the majority choice 'of the employes by eltlier a card chock or an election. ' L; 4 Under the law. Wards ,1s forbidden to bargain wllh a union which does not represent n majority. ; . ' '_ 5 The War Labor'Board has illegibly ordered ,Wardi to e\lcnd the expired contract, without 1 requiting the union to prove its majority. Wards has-hro-jght suit to have this order set aside: 6 The union has called the strike to force Wards to Accept this illegal order. 7. The t company stands ready to recognize the union when proof of Its representation has been presented. jOn Hie fncr^of the company's statement, not. materially chslKnged by the Government. Mont- Eomefy Ward & N Co. seems to be in the right. In a matter of juch great moment ii Is nol conceivable lhat Mr. Avery would make any mistakes in fact, and il k not imaginable that he'would dare make such claims it they were not true. The Government appears lo be dis- ftosed to an arbitrary and capricious use of Us powers that Involves violation and disregard of Its .own regulations and requirements. -MEMPHIS COMMERCIAL APPEAL. A Qiigck Remedy There arc numerous advocate of racial ami relig 10 us intolerance In America, and some ol them use the mails lo spread their obnoxious doctrines. It is a natural reaction that mere should be a cry of "Bar them from the mails-" and an effort lo provide penalties for persons who circulate such appeals to hatred. A bill wllh these provisions Is now pending In congress, but tlic remedies It offers are not so'logical as they may appear at first glance. ' The bill, Introduced by Kcprcscnlailvc Waller A. Lynch of New York, gives Ihc I'osloffice Department authority lo bar such matter from Die malls. This is a sweeping grant of power, a new form of censorship, it j;my be subject to flagrant abuse. The difficulty would be In drawing the line between "false or defamatory" matter and legitimate discussion, nncc and religion arc often highly controversial subject. Any expressions aboul Ihem might seem 10 some persons to be "also or defamatory. For that matter, literature directed afrahisf preachments of hatred might, If vigorously worded, also be considered fnlse or defamatory. The measure would thus defeal (he very purpose for which It Is pro|x>sed. 'The American Civil Liberties Union, which opposes (he Lyiieli .bill, offers some examples. The Negro press sometimes attacks prejurjce on the part of whiles wlUi phrases Ihul might come under the law, yet an action against a Negro paper on this ground would react lo uphold mitl-Nejjro prejudice. Similarly, Jewish lepers, nnd non-sectarian publications as well, nllack null-Semites. Some journals attack religious groups lhat enter politics. Our enemies, the Germans and Japs, are sometimes assailed on racial grounds., This miiy be unwise, but jnlllng writers who engage In It would be proposlcrous. Better than providing such penalties lor apostles ot Intolerance, ana perhaps driving them underground to do far more harm, would be a frontal attack on this evil. The bigots' charges can be readily answered, and properly documented refutations would have great value. Cases of individual libel on racial and religious ground.? can be prosecuted. Education, Interracial co-operulioii, good-will groups, literature upholding tolerance and democracy—all these would lie far more effective than an attempt at suppression. As the A. C. L. u. .snys, the Lynch bill Is a "(liiack remedy" tor un evil thai requires careful and Intelligent treatment. -ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH.

Suppose there was a microphone hidden somewhere? He didn'l think there was. But it could be. He wished now thai he had been more iioncsl in the past.
