H. G. Wells, law W'hich could not, or was not being enforced when it was law. I cannot recollect a president before, asking public adherence in peacetime to a law which did not -exist, certainly not to a law which a large number or the people and a majority of congress obviously have not liked. aUTOPA.Wr" Truman got rid i POLITICS A to the other v Sid f 11 What might be very loosely termed as the demo-republican side), the presidents action certainly required opponents of OPA to prove their theory. A Ert many peo! pie have believed that if the whole setup of government restrictions was abolished, and we returned to peacetime methods, a spotty price situation might prevail for & few weeks, but production would be encouraged and as soon as we get production, prices will come down. As goods become plentiful and competition is restored, the natural brakes of the capitalistic system would apply. It was up I to business to make this prove to' be true. 4 - To present my point clearly to your minds, let me say this: Had i-bfen in Mr. Trumans shoes I would have signed the bill and issued my protest simultaneously. This Is what his congressional leaders advised him to do. Incidentally, - this would have been also the best politics. Mr. Truman is not running for election this year, but his democratic majority is facing the. electorate. h WinS 1118 leSislat-ion. Mr. Truman has embarrassed that majority. Good politics called for mm to save what he could of OPA -not necessarily what he would like to have and help his congress, for he has -majorities in both houses. The .only immediate cheer I heard came from C. L O. President Phillip Murray who called Mr. Truman's step a stabilizing influence." It was 100 per cent the opposite out here. a non-existent bearing his 80th birthday but still itching for a fight, today launched a savage attack upon the British royal family, calling for investiga- oa what he said were rumors that it was linked with the British blackshirt movement of Sir Oswald Mosley. ' Writing in the w-eekly Socialist Leader, organ of the independent labor, party, he proposed that some -district in America where the people appear hungry for uniforms and titles should be made into a royal reserve for the vari ous courts in exile. Genuine democratic communi-ties. Wells wrote, throughout the world need to know what a go-00 J0 this hushed up business of the huge Mosley funds and how far -our own royal family la involved in this affair. - 1 If it is involved then there is every reason why the House of Hanover should follow the House of Savoy into the shadows of exile and leave England free to return to her old and persistent republican tradition, the tradition of Ohver Gromwen.
