The Perils of Strength Labor Day this year finds tin' organized .workers of the United Stales in a position of strength—mimeriral, political tmd financinl—which is unsurpassed in the nation's 4: v history. Tims'far the TalVllartley has fulfilled none of thc dire tions made about it. There are no nr . dications aa yet that the lahor movement is being destroyed, or set liacU 25 years, or even seriously hampered. In spite of this law, some unions ; have negotiated the best contracts in their history. And one might even say that because of this law, the great body of union members has become a political force to be reckoned with as never before. There is great hope in this power for the workers whose efforts have so largely contributed to making America tiip world's greatest and most progressive nation, a tower of strength and hope for freedom-loving peoples everywhere. But the same power also carries with it an increasing clement of danger. Speaking in general, organi/exl labor has won its fight for recognition as a permanent and indispensable part of American life. Thc threat Unit antiunion employers will destroy the movement now is so remote as lo seem impossible. Thc threat that labor's strength may invite powei-luiiigry or subversive leaders, however, is already present and increasing. The union officials who have exploited their position for extravagant, personal, destructive purposes may be few. The Communists in key union ym- sitions may constitute only ;\ minute percentage of total uuicm membership. But both reflect discredit upon all of labor, respectable men and women whose interests they claim lo have at heart. The Communist menace in thn labor movement is no pipe dream. The campaign against it, in and out qf labor's ranks, is no witch hunt, as the Communists would like to have I lie country believe. Thc unions arc the ideal and traditional place for them to do their greatest damage. Behind a smoke screen of misrepresentations and lies they strive lo create the dissension, unrest, and self- pitying class consciousness which help to sap the country's economic health and create a major depression. It is only in depression and chaos that communism stands any chance of gaining a real foothold here. Neither Sen. Tait nor Kep. Hartley, nor anyone else tagged as an "enemy of labor," begins to deserve that title as do the Communists within the lahor movement itself. For their purpose is to destroy all freedom, tear down our democracy and prosperity, and substitute the regimentation and terror of Soviet "democracy." So on this day of honor to labor, the organized workers might well take stock of the dangers which threaten them as well as of tlieir hard-won and well-deserved advancement. For as labor's strength increases, so does the need to operate its unions in a truly representative, democratic manner, to avoid gullibility, and to recognize its greatest enemies. plays a most im]x>i'tanl part in the affairs of a democracy. A prominent Arkansas attorney made the statement that "private opinions, if expressed, become public opinion." This being true then it behooves each private citizen to express his opinions, but only after h« has given the subject enough thought to be sure he is right. It might even be said that public opinion is influenced somewhat,by the person who refuses or neglects to express his opinion because his silcnie is taken to mean either indifference or agreement. All this makes each private citi/.en in ;> democracy important nnd it is nci'usKiu-y Hull he be a true thinker. The columnist Elsie Robinson says that nine-tenths of what we call thought is not created by us, but in passed on, or inherited, or forced upon us by eirciimsUmccs or environment. It's No Use, Sister/He Has a Girl! She defines a true thinker ns "a great iirchilect who chooses and ex- ami iit's his material and shapes it within himself and finally builds his 'own conclusions." Thinking is not now and never has been a popular spoil. History shows that many true thinkers have gone to jail for it. Their thinking caused them to come up with strange new ideas that were dangerous to someone. Kveti today real thinkers are persecuted if they let their thoughts be known. And so at least 00 per cent of the people let someone else do their limiting which is the easy way out, and also a sure way to lose the democracy of which we sing so much. VIEWS OF OTHERS Housewife Tells 'Em No end of heavy thinkers luive explained why our democracy is better limn imy dictatorship. But none 1ms come within a mile of doing it, as well us a Connecticut housewife did hi n letter to her home paper.

It is bis success with furthering this determination that made President Tru- leavliig the world divided into two great camps — dictatorships and democracies. In an address lo the 20th annual Legion convention, Eisenhower said that today no nation is in a position deliberately to start a global war with any hope of gain. But he warned that the United States, as the champion of freedom, would receive the first blow, from an aggressor nation. II must prepare now for the future and for any accidental "explosion," he said. Elsenhower called his address an "official farewell" to the I.«i-ion as chief of staff. He plans to retire after Jan. 1 to become president of Columbia University. Elsenhower said this country had taken a major step toward preparedness by creating a single national military establishment. Bui it still needs a reservoir of trained manpower lie said, and universal military training is the "least bin'den- some solution." Eisenhower said the United States is continuing to work for peaceful cooperation among all nation;; "within the United Nations, Ihe best available implement for developing appropriate agremenls and procedures." "But we must face the hard fact that during the two years since hostilities ended, the cooperaitcc spirit lias lost ground," he said.

"But as long as deliberate aggression against the rights of free 'men and the existence of free government may be a part of the international picture, we must be prepared for whatever Ibis may finally mean to us." Eisenhower said he was discussing issues "forced upon us by the slowness of progress toward our desired objective — the substitution of the council table for the battle field." •He said he did not want to be understood "as seeing a global wnr as an immediate threat." He said "hysteria" must not influence sober preparedness.
