Brighter Era Dawning For Nations Labor Observance of l.altoi' Day lias had » dull griiy linjjo, i" recent yours, duo to the inip!c:isanl fact that the spirit of earnest toil which the day is supixiswl to commemorate hasn't been pelting much chance (o exercise itself. It has been a liltlc difl'ieull to put on a good, • old-fitshioncil Labor Day ccle- brritiori at- a fime when millions upon millions of erstwhile wage earners were out of work, had been out of work for months and saw little chance of being any (hint' but out of work for months lo come. Now it would be very nice lo report that Labor Day of IU3-I is dif- 'forenl from ils immediate predecessors in that unemployment has practically ceased—nice, but untrue, because, unfoilunatcly, unemployment is slill .very much willi u.s. ; We can say that things are .•••01110- whal better than they were, anil that. the future 'is pretty eucot'jnigin^— but, meanwhile, Ihc American Federation of Labor estimates that there are something like !»,000,000 men 'who want to work but have no jobs, and the federal i;overmncnl continues lo spend millions of dollars every week for unemployment relief. ; - * * V However, we can say one more thing, and by saying it can help lo make Labor Day far more sigmticnut than it has sometimes been even in eras of high prosperity. \Vc can truthfully say that the depression years have (aught us to reassess our old ideas about the place of labor in organized society. We have learned lhat the community • is nol healthy when labor is not healthy; that unemployed workers mean trouble for farmer and banker and industrialist and white-collar worker; that we are all, in short, in the same boat, and that none of us will get along properly unless all of us arc getting a fair break. Once we fully realize this—and we . are a lot nearer to ils rcalix.alion than we have been before—the way will be open for labor to travel a much smoother road than it has traveled in the past. There will be less exploitation and more . fairness; less class antagonism and more co-operation; less aimless drifting and more progress along the road to a broader, fuller richer life for every man which is the essence of the great American dream. —Bruce Cation. Pariahs In Law lOarle W. Kvans of Wichita, president of Hie American liar Association, deserves ihe thanks of the country for his riiifc'inK demand that the bar in- stitnle a vigorous campaign against Ihe crooked lawyer. "The lawyer criminal," In; declares, "is an offensive creature, usually found in the large centers of population, who advises clients bow lo dim- mil crimes with (lie minimum risk of detection." This is (rue enough; and il might be added tlial sunn: of our most dangerous law-breakers would have been jugged long ago if unscrupulous lawyers had not been willing to use any and every means to keep lliem out of jail. Such lawyers, of course, are numerically an insignilicant group in the coun- Iry's bar. The things they do, however, have a far-reaching cil'ect. It is good to see that the head of the coiin-- Iry'.i bar association is alive to the harm they do and is determined lo stamp Ihem out. High Cost of Strides If vim have ever doubled tluil the ,sl rike is Ihe most expensive way of seltling labor difficulties, you might scan the iigures presented by Ihe Minneapolis Junior Chamber of Commerce, dealing wilh Ihe recent truck strike in thai cily. The truck drivers themselves, in wages, lost ?D75,liu(). Employers, lost) in diminished business, ?2(),dO(i,6oo; • Taxpayers, through the calling of the national guard, had to fool a bill of ?'100,UOO. In addition thure were deaths, injuries, much property damage, wage losses to Ihousands of workers nol directly involved in the dispute, and tin: loss of much business, some of which will never return. All Ibis makes a pretty heavy bill for a community lo pay. Almost any kind of peaceful settlement would have been cheaper than thai, in the long run.
