Lin Hope, at Gibson Drug. Government Made Lewis What He Is By LYLE C. WILSON Washington, Nov. 25-(UP)—The United States government made John L. Lewis what he is today, a labor leader with millions of dollars in his war chest and power Jn his fist to stop industry dead. TIGHT, ACHING MUSCLES ARE MX SPECIALTY! Up to April 26, 1933, Lewis was the leader of a badly bent, if not justed, union, whose members worked in the nation's sickest industry. Lewis and the United Mine Workers of America made an extraordinary recovery under the New Deal. On April 26 thirteen years ago, Congress passed and Franklin D. Roosevelt subsequently signed the National Industrial Recovery Act. Us famous Section 7-A made Lewis. Section 7-A guaranteed him the right to organize the mines. Since then he has extended the union shop to every coal mine m the Poor little chest muscles all sore and "achey" from hard Coughing? Quick, Mentholatum! Rub it on back, chest, neck.

Since then, Lewis himself has moved to Washington from Indianapolis, Ind. Since then the United Vline Workers have acquired then- all and handsome office building jverlooking McPherson Square in he capitol's financial and ritzy hotel district. Since then Lewis has oecome the. most powerful labor eader in the United States. The National Industrial Recovery Act not only guaranteed labor's tight to organize, but permitted industry agreements ' ior minimum coal prices and specified fair competitive practices. It was declared unconstitutional clur- ng the mighty contest between the Roosevelt New Deal and the old Supreme Court. But collective bargaining and Lewis' iron hand on the union and the pits were never weakened. They were assured ultimately by the National Labor Relations Act, passed later in the Roosevelt administration. •. When Franklin D. Roosevelt came along in 1932 to pick Lewis up from the floor, the United Mine Workers had perhaps 125,000 members compared with 485,000 ten years earlier. The coal industry itself was no sicker than the treasury of Lewis' union. The years from 1927 to 1933 had been times of struggle among the operators for markets. There were wage cuts, price wars and bitter contests within the union. Production and | employment both were down. When depression hit the rest ot the country in 1930, it already had been crushing Ihe mining Jndustry for quite some time. Under the National Industrial Recovery Act s labor, and industrial guarantees, Lewis in 1933 obtained a 29 per cent hike in wages for his miners. He has been getting more ever since. ' . It was about then, too, that ne came here to live, a great, imposing figure oC a man who soon was and for long continued to be n social lion much sought by hostesses to lend charm and distinction to their parties. Where John L. Lewis sat was pretty sure to be the head of the table, or mighty close to it. He was reckoned one of the best conversationalists in town. Lewis' union boomed with his own growing importance. Three years after the administration gave him that priceless guarantee to organize, Lewis was able to give and lend nearly half a million dollars to FDR's second presidential campaign Bv April 1, 1937 he had established the principle of time and one half for overtime in the mines. By 1940 his United Mine Workers could report 600,000; members. So well were things going for Lewis that with UMW funds.. he undertook in 1935 to set up a new type of union. In 193G he ioj'mally organized what since has become the Congress of Industrial Organizations. Lewis bolted the American Federation of Labor to accomplish that feat. ' . Soon after that he bolted his friend, FDR, too. In 1940 he resigned the presidency of the CIO when its members resolutely refused to vote for the late Wendell L. Wilkie and against Mr. Roosevelt for a third term. Now Lewis s back in the AFL again, and raoidly is rising lo dominance in it. Lewis won further concessions from the operators in the spring of 1941 On the eve ot Pearl Harbor. Lewis won a long coal strike to ex- lend tne union shop into the so- called captive southern coal mines owned by steel companies. That dispute actually was settled on Doc. 7, 1941 about the lime the Japanese hit Hawaii. There arc about 250,000 churches in the United States, affiliated with more than 250 dcnomina tions.

Armitagc, secretary of the Hope Chamber of Commerce last night tendered his resignation effective December 15, at a meeting of the board of directors. Mr. Armitagc has served as secretary of the local chamber since February 16, Ihis year. He accepted the position following closure of the Proving Ground where he served as technical advisor to the commanding officer since July 1941. Under his direclion as secretary the Chamber has succeeded in bringing Shanhouse and Co., garment manufacturers, to Hope. Mr. Armitagc was instrumental in launching the Hcmpstcad pasture program designed to promote livestock production, which is rapidly becoming one of the county's major industries. The organization also had a key part in making the Third District Livestock Show here one of the most successful cvci held in Southwest Arkansas. Mr. Annitagc's resignation follow ed acceptance of a position as as sislant to the president of Rich Aire Inc., manufacturers of Corsi cana, Texas. The local chamber took no ac lion on his resignation. The groui will meet next week to elect of fleers for the new board of direct ors. The new board will assunv duties December 13. —o Bobcats-Zebra Football Clash Highlights Thanksgiving Day Program in Hope Highlighting the Thanksgiving Holiday will be the annual meeting f the Hope Bobcats and Pine Bluff Zebras at the High School tadium at 2 p. m. tomorrow. Little activity is planned clse- jvhcrc in the city. All downtown lores and business houses will be closed, including the two banks ind the local Poslofficc. The posl- Dfficc will dispatch and place mail n the boxes as usual. There will oc no delivery service. The Star will observe one of its three yearly holidays by suspcnd- ng publication. The newspaper al- \vays observes Thanksgiving, Christmas and July 4. Superintendent James H. Jones announced that all Hope Public Schools will be closed Thursday and Friday and work will be resumed on Monday. The biggest event of the day besides a turkey dinner will be the Bobcal-7,ebra clash. A victory would give the locals their firs! win over a Pine Bluff team although the games have been close most of the way. The visitors have had one of their most unsuccessful seasons -while •lope boasts one of its best with 9 wins against 2 losses so far. Pine Bluff has lost to Camdcn, Fordyce and Hot Springs, all decisively defeated by Ihe Bobcats. Regardless of the record the local Coaches Dildy and Toltetl and the team have plenty of respect for Pine Bluff's football ability. The game offers the Zebras an opportunity to knock off the third team in District One and particially make up for their past record. Hope knows they are capable of doing just that. So despite the dope local fans probably will see one of the best games of the scasori. Too it will be the last appearance in high school play for many of the Bobcats. • Officiating tomorrow will be Referee; Guy R.ceves of Hcndrix, Umpire; Archie Cothren of Arkansas Headlincsman; Earl O'Neal of Arkansas and Field Judge; Teddy Jones of Ouachita. ness.

For some perverse reason it lakes war, that most brutally stupid of human activities, to call forth the highest moral qualities of a people. That sobering fact was never more clearly evidenced than in Me war just past. Americans united to produce and fight, forgetful of self and of differences. From balllcfield and ship, from faclory and farm, came abundant proof of the kindliness and brolherhood of which Ihc American people are capable. Today, unhappily, those same people arc doing much lo dishonor the victory which their united good will achieved. Selfishness, curbed for so long by nobler qualities, has burst its bonds and taken com• mand. The lines of economic and - 'social battle appear to be drawn up and ready for a senseless fight which none can win and which, unless halted, can only succeed in delaying and perhaps destroying the common good which all in their right minds know wo must achieve. Today wo might do well to think seriously about the origin and Ira- dition of Ihis holiday. The firsl Thanksgiving day was celebrated by a group of men and women acutely aware of the fact thai God helps Ihoso who help themselves. .The feast that da,y was the fruit of a concerted efforl without which the feaslors would have perished. And the feast was a pause, not a truce.

The announcement concided with dispatches from Salonika which said a new battle had broken out in Macedonia. Greek Third Army headquarters said 600 members of a "Communist" band 'rom newly established leftist headquarters on Mount Jena had occupied the villages of Mavron and Mandhalon, 10 miles northeast of Edessa.

Dr. Roberts said there is ar archaeological "blank" of abou 7,000 years in America. This is the period between the Folsom man who lived 10,000 years ago at the end of an ice age, and the ancestors of the modern American Indian about 3,000 years ago.

Apparently the Customers Have Been Giving This Butcher a Bad Time New York, Nov. 27— I/PI Old Billy was a jockey-sized one-legged butcher. He liked everything about the mea), business except one thing — customers. "If it wasn't for the customers, I wouldn't expect pay," he said. "They ruin the work." Not that old Billy ever overworked. He had a gypsy foot— one — and he never stayed long in a place. He would work a few days or weeks behind the meal counter in our old family grocery store. Then he would buy a new shirt and take off for new pastures. But year after year he came back IIKC a wandering robin — each "A rat bit it off in my sleep,' he would say, or "I bet it on a liorse race and lost."

Billy disliked the late after noons because then the customer! flooded in and he had to work be hind the counter. He hated womei customers in particular.

Lawyers for Lewis argued that operation of the coal mines is not a "sovereign" function of the government, and that the government itself does not regard the miners as government employes. There- lore, they contended, the Smith- -onnally act, which outlaws the _nstigation of strikes against the government, does not apply. Lewis's attorneys contended the government was directly responsi- jle for the soft coal walkout. They said there would have been no work stoppage "if the government had complied with the terms of the contract." After a brief recess, the judge called on UMW counsel to'explain why the union should not be held to its contract for the "period of government coal mines. possession" of the -.., suit~bf trie cpal strike.

What a store" Joseph Padway, general counsel for the American Federation of Labor, approach in Lewis' behalf for the first time. He .promptly ciled the Norris-LaGuardia act in opening arguments for dismissal of the case. "If the Norris-La Guardia act is applicable, then this court had no right to issue the contempt ruling," Padway declared. Padway arose after Judge T. Alan Goldsborough decided that the question of dismissing the contempt citation against the United Mine Workers' president should be taken up first. Lewis sat stolidly behind a battery ot union lawyers. At issue was whether he should be punished for permitling his 400,000 sofl coal miners lo quil work last Wednesday, despite a court order. The small courtroom was so crowded thai only 12 speclalors were able to find seats. Hundreds of disappointed curiosity seekers were left outside in the corridors. Goldsborough announced it had Dcen suggested that Lewis "might DG entitled to the right" of a regu- ar jury trial. Accordingly, the judge said he was considering em- paneling a jury with full power 'io convict or acquit the union chieftain. Assistant Attorney General John F. Sonnctl, chief government counsels quickly told the court the goy- ernmenl contends Lewis has iio such right. Previously, Goldsborough had ordered thai Ihe jury be merely advisory. On thai basis he either could adopt or reject its verdict as he chose. Selection of a jury was delayed, however, by the arguments on whether the case should be thrown out.
