Yes, ffie strength of our nation depends on the wage-earner... f he man, or woman, who produces fhe necessities and luxuries that make our nation the most abundant in the world. Without Labor, America could not have survived fhe wars that have demanded so much in the way of raw mater' ia/s and manufactured goods. Without them, none of us would enjoy such a high standard^ of living. Labor Day was /irst observed unofficially in I8$2... but in 1894, Congress passed a bill making it a legal holiday. Men of Labor have drawn together in the crafts, the trades and the prof f esslons because they have found that only by this unify can they live in dignity, preserve their rights to work and enjoy a fair profit from that labor. Working men have learned that only by present- ings a united front fan they protect their rights, and that each man's protection depends on fhe success of their struggle as one body. We fake this opportunity to wish everyone a very happy and safe Labor Day Holiday '. ('
