In other words, they can't work for a living unless they pay poll taxes and any other taxes that may be imposed by private and utterly irresponsible organizations. many of which are flagrantly corrupt.

To date the Dodgers, led by Pistol Pete Reiser, have stolen 94 bases to rank far ahead of all in the early '30s, when Martin and company frained from criticizing this state of affairs.

They said the government should have the power to tell us what sort of work we wore to do and where lo go and to fix our pay. Hopkins, a cocuy little adventurer who rode the cushions on a pass all his life, got really tough and wrote "il isn't just talk and it wont blow over and it docs mean you.' This at a time when .. men and women were given their hoice between contributing to the ooscvelt campaign fund, to union unds for dubious European relief, nd to "testimonial gifts" for licving union officials or lying le.

I wonder how 'hen they all know the content nd meaning of- the general run of nion constitutions. The oath of the Internalipnal Ty- ographicai Union, which is really ne of the more respectable nions, says that the initiate sol- mnly swears that his "fidelity to le union shall in no sense be in- erfered with by any allegiance lat I may now or hereafter owe o any other organization, social, olltical or religious." The oath equired in the International Broth- rhood of Electrical Workers iledgesa new member to "bear rue allegiance to the I.B.E.W." and never to "sacrifice its interest n any manner.' These oaths plain- y place these unions above fam- ly, home, church and country. These are typical, although the phrasing varies a little in a,batch of union constitutions; •' , The : National Maritime- ; Union, of the C.I.O.,' solemnly swears the subjects "to be true and loyal to .he labor cause and to obey all rules that the union may adopt." "The labor cause' rnay include 'ornmunism and Soviet Russia. Yet the United States government permits this union, enjoying goy- ernment protection, to require this promise from American citizens.

HAM,, Owner 208 N, Ftrgvwn unions, also members of the Roosc vclt-tyew Deal political front, barred Communist by tests which certainly would not stand up in the supreme court. The court iias held that a man cannot be adjudged a communist even if he knowingly cooperates and associates with the communists right down to a >"inal, fine line, where he stops short of advocating the violent overthrow of the government. Ben Stobcrg, who admires David Dubinsky, of the garment worker's union, tells us in his biography of Dubinsky that Dubinsky arbitrarily decided that certain in- lividuals were communists and .hrew them out. The teamsters' union, bossed by the late Roosevelt's protege, Dan Tobin, has an article barring not only communists, but all who subscribe to the doctrines of the Communist party even without proof that they ire members of the party. The local executive board is the judge and it must expel the accused. The constitution of the musicians' union requires all locals to expo! Communists. Nazis and Fascists and all who assist in spreading their propaganda, even by word o: mouth, which is free speech foi you. True,'the accused get a U'ial but the article says membership in a communist "front" is cause for expulsion without defining a "front." Politicians of both parties, by unionism as is, violate every prin- Iheir general endorsement of ciple that they preach and flout much of the American bill of rights. Most of them deplore red- baiting but support a phase of unionism which practices red-baiting to an extent that the Dies committee would deplore as violently un-American.

Hughes Fights Plan to Ban 'The Outlaw' From the Screen Culver Cily, Scpl. 10 - (/Pj—Howard Hughes, slill bearing the scars of his fiery crash in an experimental plane July 7, today took off in a converted B-23 transport for New York "to challenge the revocation of the seal of approval announced yesterday by the Motion Picture Producers Association for his movie "The Outlaw. Piloting the twin-engine crafl himself, Hughes was accompanied only by a mechanic. Earl Martyn, and H passenger, John Slecter. The plane left the Hughes aircraft plants Culver City airfield al G:11 a. in. (Central Standard Timei Hughes'said his first stop, which he planned lo reach in "uvo or Ihrc'c hours. would be Albuquerque, N. M.

At. the same time,' Royall told America that she was in danger )f becoming involved- in another war unless she stayed ahead of or at. least abreast of , developments n modern weapons and kept her ' lighting forces. -strong, enough - lo halt aggressors.. "Prophecies; on nations and on elations. between them', often prove wrong," sai.d"Royall.v"But I am confident that, ,, certainly for the mrriediatc- present, .there is little ikelihood; of :,our .. nation becoming nvolved m^an'arrhedi confji»t if — and only : if— the. -whole - world knows that we. are determined and amply able to. prevent any imposition upon our rights and t^ose of ' our international associates, and that we are able to defend our-' selves against any aggressor." In Europe, Asia and Africa, said Royall, lie the embers that could well start another world conflagration. . : "I have seen the results of totalitarian governments and pseudo- popular governments who use the name of democracy 'only, as a screen for despotism— governments whose people have a standard of life far below anything in America — far below what Americans had* even 200 years ago. And in all it I have seen unrest ana ignorance and envy and suspicion of other nations— the embers that could well start another world conflagration." . He said America must be pro- pared "to . fight. "A weak America would be an, invitation to aggressive war, but a s t r o n g peace-loving America 1 would be the greatest^ deterrent to such a war," he said'. ' ' > Royall recalled 'that after World War I the United States scuttled her lighting ships and then build 9thers.\ ..,:•. ..• .-..:.. ' .' :;"Wci: ! are- faced 'VHtbi-a problem iiow .as to future use of the most terrifying of weapons, >the atomic bomb. ., , "The War. Department, • under-' whose guidance the bomb Was developed, is just as anxious as anyone else— perhaps more anxious — that its use as an instrument'of war should be abolished throughout ihe world, if we can be sure that, the abolition by other nations is complete and in good faith. "But surely no sensible person feels or can feel that we can aban- on the bomb or its use, or that wo can cease to seek its improvement as a. weapon until we can be sure — absolutely sure — that other-nations lave permanently dispensed with the bomb and . have completely ceased their •' efforts to develop it. "For the present we must be prepared, if America is attacked or if an aggresspr nation starts again on its creeping campaign of conquest, to use every weapon— and I mean every weapon-^which s at our disposal and which has lot been outlawed by an international agreement. While pointing out that he did lot wish to -seem belligerent, Roy- ' all said America was conserving, training and encouraging her scienlisls. The United Slates already had begun lo accumulate stockpiles of strategic materials necessary to iighl a war, he said, and the War- Department already was preparing an army "foreseeable in the immediate future" of 4,500,000, men "to be assembled and ready for service within one year from the date mobilizaiion is begun." Bui the United [States would be able to offer strong resistance even before mobilization got underway, he said, for "we have provided for a smaller initial force designed to meet any first attacks which may come to our continent— no matter how sudden those allacks be— and also designed to hold such lines as in foreign lands as will prevent or defer an attempted a*ttaclc upon America." Rovall also cautioned apainst He- slruclivc criticism of the American government, tie :;avo:ea cousuuc-. live criticism but said destructive criticism "costs us the respect of other nations when wholesome re- sped or Jack of it may mean the difference between pe£ce and war." 1343 Students Enroll Opening Day of School Enrollment of Hope Public schools on the first official opening day stood at 1343, representing a slight increase over enrollment last year.
