Communists and Parades J'loljiibly flicrc isn't a sizable tily in America lhat luisn't been more or less annoyed by Communist tlcmoiistni- tiowi during tlic present business depression. There are still :i y»o<l many cities, however, where tlie nilint' °f- ficials luive a lot to learn iiljonl tile way to handle such affairs. Tlifc state of Ohio recently illustrated - botli the right \vay and the wrong way. First, a group of Communists met to stage a "hunger parade" from Cleveland to the stale capital {Columbus). They were permitted to muki 1 the march—arnund 140 miles—without interference. They made nil the speeches it hoy wanted to, paraded until their feet gave out, and nobody was any the worse. . • . Then a group of Communists tried to parade in Youngstown. Permission was refused. They tried to parade, anyway. -The police broke up .tin 1 parade with clubs; four policemen and a number of Communists went to the hospital, and the agitators got a lot . of free advertising of the kind they like best.. '-When will'city officials learn that the wisest thing to do in such cases is to let the Reds parade and speechify all they want to? Good News For Sailors i • ]f the- depression has done nothing else, it, has at least helped out the sailors in the United Slates navy a little bit. Due to the fact that the constant use of holystones wears out wooden decks and makes costly replacement neces.-ary, trio Navy Department has ruled that hereafter holystones will not be used, except occasionally to rcmovo stains and s|iols. The layman may not understand, but the sailor will hail tin's as a real boon. The .holystone, which kcepj decks white ami glistening in true naval fashion, is one of the meanest things to operate imaginable. After spending half ail hour on his knees, wearing the skin off of his knuckles • and getting a crick in his back by holystoning -;ome obscure covnev, the sailor usually begins to wish be had never enlisted. If economy, born of the depression, has .banished the holystone OUT OUR WAY from the daily routine, tliu sailor's life is going to be ;i whole lot sunnier. Politicians and ihc Audit The highway atidli Inn; Is nn example ol how the people arc fooled—how they will stand and be whipped, browbeaten and eventually reduced to poverty, trying to pay Ihcir taxes lhat the politician iniBhl enjoy the luxuries of life. You have a few men responsible for ihc expenditure o( warty a hundred million dollars of your money, and what Is done when you dsmand tin accounting. They charge ymi with playing politics, nml sit back nnd chuckle m your docility. They know you will ilo nothing. They know you will lake 11. They tell you It will cost loo much- They tell you ail audit won't- do any good. They'll lell you nnyiltlng to perpetuate themselves Ju a soft spot. This proposed highway audit means moie than to find out how your money ho. 1 . IKCII spent. It is i he- Balllc of Waterloo. If you don't whip them Ihis lime, you might as well turn your properly over lo Ihcm and bcj; them to give you n dollar and u half a dny to feed your children. /It you rise up and demand an audit, dc- iniind to know where your money has jjone, mid 11 you eel U. it will be the beginning of Bcod government In Arkunms. It's an enteritis wedge Into the politicians' lair. What do they tare about a hundred thousand dollars. They threw dial up lo you when your public Indebtedness in hundreds ot millions. * * * Whose money has l:ccn spent? Who should be the one entitled to say whether II has been properly spent? Folks, this Is your Irglit. It's not. ours alone. Now Is the time lo think hi terms of lax re- diicllon mid conscrvuUun of public funds If, we can find out hoiv your money hus • been spent unrt permit the people to determine how 11 should for spent in the future, five hundred thousand dollars is not. too much money to spend. —Pine Blufl Commercial.
