Madison. Wls. November 29, 1943 Remember Pearl Harbor! Let the true farmer forevermore be honored in his calling, for they who labor in the earth are the chosen people of God. Thomas Jefferson. Farmers Who Duck The Monopoly Issue AN incident occurred at the annual state meeting of the Wisconsin Farm Bureau federation in Madison last week which, we believe, furnishes a significant clue as to the character of this organization dominated by reactionary, brief case farmers. A brief case farmer, of course, is the fellow who has a brief case full of farm mortgages, but whose direct connection with actual farming has long since been terminated, if it ever existed. The incident at the Farm Bureau meeting occurred when several would-be delegates presented their credentials. The Farm Bureau by-laws somehow contain the provision that delegates are supposed to be actually engaged in farming. Several of the prospective delegates had to be disqualified because they could not qualify as working farmers. But the reactionary, banker-minded complexion of the Farm Bureau federation was unmistakably revealed by the utter failure of the state meeting to consider or act upon the issue of monopoly which is a major threat to agriculture today, particularly in dairy farming. The Farm Bureau meeting last week adopted a set of canned resolutions, obviously prepared in advance by the brief case farmer bosses of the organization, which as expected denounced the national administration and deprecated all that has been done and is being done for agriculture. But in all this mess of verbiage, some 5,000 words long, there was not a line condemning monopoly or monopolistic trends that threaten the future welfare of every dirt farmer and every dairyman. At a time when startling revelations are being made in the cheese monopoly trial in Chicago, with documentary evidence introduced to show how cheese prices were rigged upon agreement of the big cheese and dairy companies, a group that calls itself a Farm Bureau is silent on monopoly. At a time when more and more Independent cheese factories in Wisconsin are being taken over under lease or by purchase by. the big dairy combines, and monopoly control of the market for dairy products is becoming a dead certainty, the monopoly issue is ignored by this organization run by brief case farmers. Is it surprising, therefore, that such a reactionary group should have for its national president a man of the reactionary background of Edward A. ONeal, Alabama cotton plantation owner and labor hating lobbyist against all social reforms? Is it unusual, therefore, that one Earl C. Smith, an Illinois banker and farm bloc lobbyist in Washington, should be the vice-president of this outfit? Capital Times files show that a generation ago, back in the days of Old Bob La Follette, Wisconsins great Progressive leader denounced a deal which had been made by the Farm Bureau leaders of that day with the railroads to put across a big rate gouge against the public and the farmers. The Farm Bureau leaders have changed in name since those early days, but the organizations policies are still on the side of wealth and reaction. Mr. Hawlev and War w Contract Recognition SEVERAL weeks ago The Capital Times reproduced in facsimile a letter which was being sent out on the stationery of the Northern Pump Co. of Minneapolis, Minn., over the signature of John B. Hawley, Jr., company president, which was obviously part of a propaganda campaign for repeal of the renegotiation law covering excessive war profits. It was pointed out at that time how corporate interests with huge war profits were using the argument that they must be permitted to retain seed grain or tax exempt surpluses with which to make the changeover from a war to a peace economy hence they must be permitted to keep huge war profits. The Capital Times, in criticizing the attitude of corporate wealth toward war profits, recalled that Randolph Paul, U. S. treasury expert, has stated that the corporations of this country will have an aggregate of 46 billion dollars in surpluses, largely fhade from war ON THE BY DOROTHY ANEW YORK newspaper is conducting a campaign to persuade its readers to write to congress urging the court martial of Gen. Patton. This is an extension of the Gallup poll idea to utter absurdity. Government by popular polls is in itself a degeneration of representative governm e n t, tending to undermine both responsibility and authority, and degrade the moral and intellectual level of the legislative body, laying it more and morq open to organized pressures. The historic concept of popular government was that the people should choose from amongst themselves the most qualified person, and entrust him with Thompson representing both their interests and the interests of the general welfare. He was supposed to use his own judgment and subject himself and his policies to subsequent confirmation or defeat at the elections. But re-election rapidly became more important to many of our legislators and party leaders than statesmanship. Instead of using their own judgment, attempting to see each separate issue and interest in relations to an overall view of the national welfare, they became close and shrewd students of their fan mail, and, as a result, pawns in the hands of the best organized pressure groups. Instead of making policies and standing ready on their two feet to defend those policies against all comers, risking their political careers on the wisdom and disinterestedness of their judgment, they became mere recorders of transitory popular trends. . , ' WE see the results of this in congressional failures adequately to deal with all the problems m which the welfare of the nation is incompatible with the interests of powerful groups; in their present unwillingness to vote proper taxes; in their unwillingness to offend powerfully organized farmers or workers or industrialists. Responsibility for all necessary but unpopular measures is more and more put upon the executive branch, as is subsequent and inevitable failure to find just and workable solutions for major national necessities. The problem of government is always the problem of responsibility and authority. The breakdown of authority in democracies has always ended in the breakdown of democracy itself, in the long run. But there is one branch of government to which authority has Voice of The People TLet the People Have the Truth and Freedom to Dncusi It. and All Will Go Well " COPY OF LETTER SENT TO ARNOLD ZANDER Madison, Nov. 26 To Mr. Arnold S. Zander, Wisconsin State Employes assn., 448 W. Washington ave., Madison, Wis.: We are disappointed and mortified at your condemnation of Cong. Sauthoffs vote against the continuation of food subsidies. We hope and believe you do not speak the thoughtful sentiment of government employes. They are too patriotic to want our returning soldiers and todays and tomorrows children to have to pay any part of your and my todays food bill. Instead, you might better have wired Mr. Sauthoff: Congratulations that you did not let political expedience deter you from voting that we now pay for what we eat. You might even have wired Rep. Sauthoff: Profits, farm prices and wages are now too high. Instead of voting food subsidies, please draft an income tax bill so that every last one of us from Jan. 1, 1944, for the duration and six months thereafter, will net the equivalent of a privates pay and maintenance; well patriotically accept that sacrifice as our just share in settling this our war. In time well approve the principal of such a bill, even if it is politically impossible today, for this war. C. Howard King. FROM THE RED CROSS Madison, Nov. 23 Again we are most grateful to you for the splendid co-operation you gave us during the recent visit of our Red Cross Blood Donor Mobile -Unit. The motivation of 2,600 donors in a short time could not be accomplished without widespread publicity. We are all glad that we are one of the selected communities where it is possible to contribute to this program and our Madison newspapers may well take a substantial share in the credit due for making the success of the program possible. Robert L. Hesse, Chairman. WANTS FDR TO REMAIN PRESIDENT Madison, Nov. 241 The Voice of the People has been condensed until it is like conscience a small voice. So, Im going to add my small voice to say what I and all my family, including a lad of 17, think of Pres. Roosevelt. Pres. Roosevelt is the worlds greatest profits, at the end of 1944 AFTER all taxes have been paid. THERE now comes to our attention additional data on Mr. Hawley and the Northern Pump Co. which provides an interesting sequel to the facts which this newspaper has already revealed. A study of this material will furnish a key to why Mr. Hawley, as president and sole owner of the Northern Pump Co., is one of the most bitter foes of the contract renegotiation policy which enables the federal government to recapture excessive war profits. Mr. Hawley back in 1939, the year the war started in Europe, paid himself a salary of $15,000 annually. Then the business of his company began to boom, and Mr. Hawley raised his own salary to $35,000 annually. But that was only a starter, and for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1942, Mr. Hawleys salary was $442,000, making him the fifth highest salaried person in the entire United States. Now lets take a look at what was happening to the Northern Pump Co. Before the outbreak of war, the companys plant was valued at approximately $2,300,000. The concerns total 1939 sales were $1,500,000. Then the federal government, in pressing need of the products manufactured by the company, provided $17,-000,000 In government money for the expansion of the plant, and gave the company millions of dollars worth of war orders. Busy as the plant was with war contracts, it managed to Increase its non-war business In 1942 more than $200,000 over Its non-war business of 1939. Here was a relatively small manufacturing concern prior to the war which Is now in the big money through war contracts and generous treatment by the government. Its president and sole owner has boosted his salary from RECORD THOMPSON always been delegated, and that is the defense of the nation. The people determine all the great issues the issue for instance of peace or war. But the conduct of a war is entrusted to completely authoritarian institutions the army and navy. These afe not democratic bodies, in the ordinary sense of the word. They are strictly hierarchical, in which each man is obedient to his superior and each officer to his superiors. Responsibility is strictly fixed, and cannot be waived. The spirit of an army can be democratic or aristocratic, humane or brutal, and its rules are fixed in many laws. But its forms and authorities are exact, and its procedures controlled. No armies in the world depart from this law of armies. The army of the Socialist Soviet Union is no exception, for instance. Since this war began great changes have occurred enhancing the prestige and authority of the officers corps. The officers are distinguished from their men by ever-greater differences of uniform and privilege. No theory has dictated this, but only experience. In the midst of the battle of Stalingrad the command was changed, and that terrible battle, decisive for Russia and for all of us, was won by officers who dared demand of their men the impossible and demand it with a rigor of discipline and a ruthlessness toward the common soldier which only officers prepared to steel their hearts to icyness in view of the terrible results of defeat were capable of commanding. These officers had been, in turn, commanded to hold Stalingrad at any and all costs, and they did. But the costs were terrible. THE decision of the case of Gen. Patton was in the hands of his superior. Gen. Eisenhower could have court martialled Gen. Patton. He also could choose another way to reprimand him. He chose another way, for reasons good and sufficient reasons, incidentally, that the persons urged to write to congress cannot possibly know. Gen. Eisenhower is universally known to be a man of the highest military and social virtues. No one has ever called him Blood and Guts Eisenhower, he is a different type altogether from Gen. Patton. But it is precisely Gen. Eisenhowers authority no longer Gen. Pattons that is now in question. If congress, under popular pressure, demands the court martial of Gen. Patton, it is Gen. Eisenhowers prestige and authority which is impugned, and if the officers corps of the American army can be governed by the remote control of popular pressures of civilians on congress, then God help our army! statesman and patriot, and Eleanor Roosevelt is one of the most loyal citizens. And of Will-kie, we say and thou too, Brutus. His world prominence is due to Roosevelts promoting and trusting him. My small voice may be lost, but I say Roosevelt should remain our president until peace is won and he can sit at the peace table. Loula Gibson Nealy. MISSED THE WISHING WELL Osseo, Wis. Nov. 2. Glad the Wishing Well is coming back. We missed them. I like the paper and hate to miss a copy. Miss Emma Wilson. RECOGNITION FOR GOOD DEEDS Madison Nov. 24.1 After reading all the articles about Mike, the dog which was burned, I wondered what the people who sent in those articles would do if a human being would have a like misfortune. These same people now have the chance to praise a 12 year old with the avidity they wanted a 12 year old punished. The boy involved in Mikes case was punished before all of the Voice of the People articles were published. Some articles wanted him sent to the reform school, some this, and some that, others wanted their names. Betty Anderson, a 12-year-old heroine who saved an 8-year-old boy from drowning. Why not write articles complimenting this girl, and make 12-year-old children realize that by doing a good deed you will be repaid in publicity the same amount you would receive if you are involved in a wrong doing? The Humane society sure was out to get publicity for Mike. Where is the society which is out for Betty? This girl is surely entitled to recognition, a true heroine. Congratulations, Betty Anderson! A Father of Two Children. LIKES HOT AIR Barneveld, Wis., Nov. 12.1 Enclosed please find check for my renewal of The Times. I like to read Bill Evjues hot air. Ha! Ha! E. L. Campbell. $15,000 to $442,000 annually. Its profits because of the war are far beyond anything that could have been expected in normal times. And what effect has all this good fortune had upon Mr. Hawley. He has become a vociferous advocate of legislation to permit corporations to retain their fat war profits under the seed grain alibi, and his activities include a planned propaganda campaign in the newspapers, over the radio, and before congress. MR. HAWLEY, with his $442,000 war bonanza salary and his profit rich manufacturing concern is providing an excellent reason why contract renegotiation and other anti-war profits measures must not only be retained, but strengthened. A Book a Day Edited by AUGUST DERLETH "Rise to Follow, by Albert Spalding: Holt, New York: $3.50. Mr. Spaldings autobiography is a book which has a far wider appeal than simply to the musical world, for his concern has not been solely with music, either objectively or subjectively, but with people and places, and he has brought to his narrative of his life a mind singularly enriched by experience, art, and contemplation of the lives of those people, great and small, he has known. Beginning from 1895, when Spalding was seven and had his first violin, the narrative carries on to just prior to the present World war. It is in large part a record of triumphs, told with a modesty becoming to one so eminent. But what is perhaps of most value to the reader is the meaning of music to a man who has for so long been a part of the best in music. Spalding has a vigorous, direct style, not spare but not florid either, so that his autobiography is much better, from the perspective of literary style, than readers might expect. Rise to Follow is in many ways a delightful book, one which many a reader will find it difficult to put down, once begun. August Dcrieth. OUR BOARDING HOUSE - With Major Hoople EGAD, BOYSDlD YOU HEAR. A WEIRD NOISE. LAST NlSWT LIKE THE CHATTERING OF A MACHINE GUN ? THE DllN SEEMED TO COME FROM BAXTERS YARD - IT WOKE ME TWICE WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND By DREW WASHINGTON. D. C.-Dont take those Bricker-for-President breezes from Capitol hill too seriously. Senate and house members from Ohio have come out unanimously for the Ohio governor but inside fact is that they would prefer to see Sen. Bob Taft emerge as the GOP white house nominee. Further inside fact is that Taft hasn't completely eliminated himself as a presidential hopeful, though it was Taft and none other who con-vinced Bricker that he should throw his hat in the presidential ring even after Bricker had made up his mind to run for a fourth term as governor of Ohio. This eased out, in part, at a secret meeting of Ohio senators and congressmen which endorsed Bricker unanimously for the presidency. While everybody was giving lip service to Bricker, it was quite apparent that their hearts belonged to Taft. Hardly had the unanimous meeting for Bricker begun, when Rep. Ed Rowe of Ohio declared that he doubted Bricker could beat Wendell Willkie in the Akron area. Willkie had got in a lot of spadework in this section, Rowe said, and had some potent hacking, including that of Robert Weaver, a Cleveland manufacturer. Rep. Frances Bolton of Ohio, one of the wealthiest members of congress, demurred that Miss Marion Martin, chief of the womens division of the Republican national committee, had turned against Willkie and that Willkie could therefore expect little support from GOP women voters in 1944. This was quickly challenged on the ground that Miss Martin was a political ally of Sinclair Weeks of Massachusetts, treasurer of the Republican national committee and a strong Willkie booster. However, Mrs. Bolton insisted that Miss Martin had been talking against Willkie. It was brought out that Rep. Carroll Reece of Tennessee, a Republican, likely would manage Brickers campaign and could assure the Ohio governor the support of most of the Southern delegates at the GOP convention. This raised Bricker's stock a little, but most of the Ohio congressmen still are secretly for Taft, though they cast a unanimous vote for Bricker at the caucus. 1 CIVILIAN VS. ARMY PILOTS One of the great jobs of this war is the air transport command flying thousands of bombers, transports, cargo planes across the big, black oceans which separate the U. S. from the many theaters of war. But while recognition of this great job is universal, most people do not realize that there are two parts to the air transport command. One is the army. The other is civilian and is let out by contract to the big air companies. Today when you go down the street, you may see a man in a flying officers uniform. If you notice that his wings are bronze with a A.T.C. in the center, you will know that he is a civilian employe working for United Air Lines, T.W.A., American Airlines, Pan-American, Eastern Air Lines or some other company which flies planes on contract for the army. Unfortunately, a bitter feeling exists on the part of regular army air officers toward this division inside the air transport command. The reason for the bitterness is the fact that these civilian pilots get all the advantages of the army, but with salaries two and three .times as great. For instance, thousands of second ana first lieutenants, with a sprinkling of captains, are pushing planes back and forth across the ocean every week for the regular army pay of around $300 a month or less. Meanwhile, civilian carriers,, because they fly under contract to the army, get from $650 to $1,150 for captains on trans-Atlantic runs, plus $8 per day expense money for every day that they are away from their home base. Army OUT OUR WAY YEAH. X HEARD IT, BUT THAT TRANSPARENT BLANKET OF MINE IS SO THIN 1 DON'T REALLY SLEEP -THE FROST SELLS ME X LAUGHED IT OFF -WHATS ONE MORE NOISE IN A Houseful of BUZZ- SAMS GOING FULL BLAST ? PEARSON airmen have nothing against these civilian pilots personally, but they do vigorously resent the system. They pay tribute to the fact that, in the early days before Pearl Harbor, the commercial companies jumped in and helped the army do a speedy, miraculous job. But now, with the army well trained and with excellent transport pilots on hand, the young army pilots wonder why this cost-plus contract system continues. They especially wonder whether the position of Gen. C. R. Smith former American Airlines president); Lt. Col. John Steele (Pan-American operations manager); Col. Harry Fritz (T.W.A.); Jack Frye (T.W.A.) and many others in the air transport command has anything to do with it. AIRLINES LOOKING TO FUTURE One thing that particularly gripes the army airmen is the manner in which they think the commercial companies are hoarding personnel, ready to slip back to the juicy, global airlines after the war is over. They will have the pilots all trained to fly these new routes, familiar with every airport of the world. And these civilian A.T.C. pilots will hold seniority, will have been in positions of trust, building every day for the future of the commercial companies. Meanwhile, when the war is over, the lieutenants and captains of the regular army will have to stand in line at the employment offices of the airlines many of them because they resigned from their commercial companies and enlisted in the army. Furthermore. these young army pilots point out that the big commercial companies are hoarding pilots and are keeping a large reserve of personnel. This they can do when they work on a cost-plus basis. For instance, one commercial company had 100 co-pilots sitting around Washington getting $400 to $800 a month until they threatened to quit unless they were kept busy. T.W.A. inaugurated a ground school to keep them occupied and keep them quiet. Another unfair fact which army pilots point to is that the commercial companies operate the big four-motor jobs, while the army takes over the twin-motor planes. With the two-motors, if one motor gives out. its usually curtains. But the civilian pilots with four-motored bombers handle big reserves of gasoline and have a much higher safety factor. That unfortunately is the feeling of young pilots who resent the fact that their government is spending the taxpayers money to do a job which they are glad to do at much lower cost, instead of which the big airlines feather their nests for the future.

Army Secrecy From The Waupun Leader-News NOW for our weekly complaint We realize that the army has a passion for secrecy, but every time we see one of those army cars running around without a license or other identifying mark, except the color, we wonder what a civilian is supposed to do if he wants to identify the car. Read the motor number, maybe. But perhaps thats a military secret too. We have received reports that the Nazis extracted blood from small children before killing them. The blood was used in trans- j fusions for German wounded. Constantin ! Oumansky, Soviet ambassador to Mexico. !
