PHILADELPHIA, March 1. JP1-- The late Charles A. Lindbergh, Sr., Minnesota congressman and father of the famous flyer, speaks today through a book which was suppressed by the government during the World war. Entitled "Your Country at War," the elder Lindbergh's work is described by the publishers who brought it out today as prophetic. In its attacks on wartime hysteria, p r o f i t e e r s , bankers and giant monopolies, the volume makes predictions and recommendations which have materialized in the years since the representative's death in 1924. "The book even predicts use of a plan almost identical with the NRA," says an introduction by the author's former law partner, W. E. Quigley, of M i n n e a p o l i s . "The Pecora investigations of big bankers and high finance are revealing things in '1933 and 1934 that were foretold by Lindbergh in 1917." But in 1918 government agents raided the Washington print shop where the book was published, seized available copies and ordered the .plates destroyed. A few copies which had already left the shop were sent to Minnesota and used in Representative Lindbergh's campaign for governor. They here the title, -'Why Is Your Country at War?" The answer given by Lindbergh was the domination of "special privilege." Farm Sale Stopped at Waterloo When Bids Are Too Small WATERLOO, March 1. UP)-Deputy- Sheriff H. M.
