Several were posted on bulletin boards at the factory. 'Fascism and War! The communist party af Springfield wishes to point out that unless them rights are prelected they will be token away from us Workera, said the circular.

"Suck a step leads to lew wages, to Fascism, and to War! Yet, yes yon should ge to war for the benefit af hla honor tha Judge and hla "prosperity seekers!" Another liner Prosperity? Not for the Working Class! Never under Capitalism!" Legionnaires were not inclined to take the circular very seriously, They have been plentiful here before. But," said Clyde Ornuby, chairman ef the Americanisation committee, "they didnt take the tourist very seriously In Norway, either." The Legion is not trying to get the public excited, said Curtle Gates, who offered the resolution.
