Bat wnw they are able words. W fool s»rnc people wllli lliat false The Peri Is of Strength, 'Labor Day this year finds Ihn organized workers of the United Status in a position of .strength—mmiorical, political and 'financial—wlucli is unsurpassed in the nation's .piw«Um<- , -' history. Thus'far the Taft-HavUey Act has fulfilled none of the dire predictions made about it. There ave no indications as yet that the labor movement is being destroyed, or set liack 25 years, or even'seriously hampered. In spite of this law, some unions , have negotiated the best conlnictK in their history. And one might oven -say that because of this law, the grout body of union members has become a political force to bo reckoned with as never before. There -is great hope in this power for the workers whose efforts have so largely contributed to making America the 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 element of danger. Speaking in general, organized labor has won its fight for recognition as a permanent and indispensable part , of American life. The threat thiit antiunion' employers will destroy the movement now is so remote as 1o seem impossible. The threat that labor's strength may invite power-hungry 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 positions may constitute only a minute percentage of total union membership. But both reflect discredit upon all of labor, respectable men and women whose interests they claim to have at h'eart. The Communist menace in the labor movement is no pipe dream. The campaign against it, in and out of labor's ranks, is no witch hunt, as the Communists would like to have the country believe. The unions are the ideal and traditional place for them to do their greatest damage. Behind a smoke screen of misrepresentations and lies they strive to 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. Tat't nor Kcp. Hartie.y, . nor anyone else tagged as an "enemy of labor," begins to deserve that title as do the Communists within the labor movement itself. For their purpose is to destroy all freedom, tear down our democracy and prosperity, and substitute the regimentation and I6rror 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 their hard-won and well-deserved advancement. For as labor's strength increases, so docs the need to operate its unions in a truly representative, democratic manner, to avoid gullibility, and to recognize its greatest enemies. plays a most important 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 ha has given the subject enough thought to be sure he is right. It might even be said that public opinion is influenced the person who refuses or neglects to express his opinion because his silence is taken to mean either indifference or agreement. All this makes eafli private citixen in n democracy important and it is necessary lha.1 ho be a true thinker. The columnist Klsie Robinson says that nine-tenths of what we call thought is not, created by us, but in pnssud on, or inherited, or forced upon us by circumstances or environment. She defines a true thinker as "a great architect who chooses ami examines his material and shapes it within himself and finally builds his ^ own conclusions." Thinking is not now and never has been a popular sport. 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. Kvcn today real thinkers are persecuted if'they lei. their thoughts be known. And so at least {10 per cent of the people let someone else do their limit- ing'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 eml of heavy thinkers have explained why our democracy Is better than any dictatorship, lint none has come within a mile of doing It as well us a Connecticut housewife did in a letter to her home paper. She wrote it when she got, her dander up over a letter which praised socialism, as offering "a surer victory over poverty." "Show me nn example." the housewife demanded. "The socialized world Is 100 per cent worse oft than we are. It Is noteworthy that In the two least-socialized European nStlons, Holland ami Belgium, recovery has been most rapid." Our own country, the writer declared, "didn't become the breadbasket, the factory, the bank: and the hope of the world by following the- wrong principles." It was because of our system, for we are just a "conglomeration of all oilier peoples." Mnny of our great Inventors and builders "came here as i>eimiless refugees, and brought their genius" with them." The lady packed a volume into these lines: "Freedom appeals to man's strength; socialism and communism appeal to man's weakness This free wny of lire Is a rugged, painful business ixl times, hut it has paid the biggest dividends on earth, and bns been worth every weary mile of it." We bow n how of admiration to yon, Madam. —ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT. It's No Use, Sister/He Has a Girl! rtf Dictatorships, Democracies Split World Into Two Camps Tli. DOCTOR SAYS By WILLIAM A.

ACCH1KNTAL C.'IUM'MNHI Many children are crippled today as a result of accidents winch are largely preventable. Osteomy- elitis (bone infection) has become less common as a result, of advances in surgery and the use of sulfa drugs and penicillin.. A great deal of crippling in child-hood is caused by failure of a part of the body to develop properly. It may affect a bone or joint and c'.uise shortening of the affected part with inability to get around. Wearing casts and brace-s, and operations while the child is young, will yield a rich return in later life. QUESTION: Is it possible to spread malaria by transfusion? ANSWER: Yes, even though the doitor had the disease several years before. Transfusion malaria is mild, however, easy to treat, and does not relapse. democracies. In an address to the 29th annual Legion convention, Eisenhower said that today no nation is in n position deliberately to start a global war with any hope of Bain. But he warned that the United States, as the champion of freedom, would receive the first blow from an aggressor nation. It "prepare now for the future and lov any accidental "explosion," he said. Elsenhower called his address an "official farewell" to the 1-cgiou. as chief of staff. He plans to re- lire after Jan. 1 lo become president of Columbia University. Elsenhower said this country had taken a major step toward preparedness by creating a single national military establishment. But it still needs a reservoir of trained manpower he said, and universal military training is the "least burden- Borne solution." Eisenhower said the United States is continuing to work for peaceful cooperation among all nations, "within the United Nations, the best, available implement for developing appropriate agremenls and procedures."
