Tens of thousands of loyal Iowa hearts burned with indignation as readers scanned the naive communication, but it remained for the war board of his own West Bend to give Mr. Daubendiek his due.

Your,, comments received and brothe you're talking my language, the only differ ence being you are where you can shoot off your bazoo and not have anyone knocking your head off. You're not the only one who's put out by war profiteering—and meaning by that- profiteering by both capital and unions, and when it comes to the latter the unions are the biggest business in this country and the toughest babies to handle. Sure I'd vote against them—but I'd be about the only one. You see there are some 500 of us, and 499 are from districts where the unions control the vote—and brother, they control'it! They go right down the line for a stooge and this business of repub lican or democrat just don't mean anything, And don't worry too much about those boys getting the big checks. Remember Teapot Dome and the scandals after the World war? They'll look like peanuts to the scandals that'll be dug up after this is over. And those boys pay plenty into labor unions for the right to work. Don't forget this—someday this will be r r»t* "\7-t* • . Ml _ i; n * THE AfOV/ES T.H.C, H. M.
