John Lewis, head of the C. I. O., Is one of the leading characters In the United States today. He has been the head of the radical element of the American Federation of Labor for years. Finally he withdrew or was expelled from the American Federation. He then °. r f. anl ?^ C I O and surrounded himself with the following men as assistants and first lieutenants: John Brophy Is the executive director of tne C I. O. and a leader In the campaign to unionize the steel industry. In 1928 John Lewis said Brophy was a paid agent of the Soviet Government In Russia Powers Hapgood, the head organizer for C. I. O. Is a former secretary of the socialist party. Both Brophy and Hapgood united with the communists in a "Save the Union" movement and were identified as officers of the national miners union affiliated with the communist league. Adolph Garner, member of advisory board or C I O. is a former national secretary of the socialist party and was sentenced to twenty years In Leavenworth under the espionage act. »,,vc made on Memorial Day tnat pernays «» ...-.» gidncy Hilleman , another director of C.

Homer S. Martin, president of the union automobile workers, is a former Baptist minister, who became so radical his views clashed with his church and he withdrew. ' Maurice Sugar, radical lawyer and communist endorsed candidate in the 1936 election for Recorders Judge in Detroit is author of the Soup Song, the comrades' newest singing tune. Walter, Victor, and Roy Reuther, three brothers, are also C. I. O. organizers and rabble rousers and active workers in the various socialistic causes and two of them are graduates of the Brookwood Labor College at Katonah, New York, a socialistic school for training negro and white agitators IS MILES, LEGION EDITOR, RIGHT? Last week, Frank Miles, editor of an American Legion publication, unleashed an editorial barrage at Governor Kraschel of Iowa and Governor Benson of Minnesota, deeming both of them guilty of not properly giving due credit and regard to service organizations. With Governor Kraschel, the bone of contention was that he had appointed a man on a state board who was not a Legion member to replace one who was a Legion member. With Governor Benson, It was to challenge the Minnesota governor's utter- Memorial Day that perhaps as much for their country. Rending and hearing the remarks of Editor Frank Miles, one cannot help but wonder. Is It necessary that one have a membership card in any of our many organizations to be a loyal American citizen? Is it necessary that one must hold a membership card to be a good and efficient public official? Is It un-American to advance new thoughts in public, whether It be on Memorial Day or any other day. If Hubert Utterback Is unqualified to hold the office to which Governor Kraschel appointed him. then there is a place for editorial comment, and fearless comment. If Governor Benson of Minnesota has made an un-American statement In questioning Uie wisdom of playing up deeds of valor in bygone days to the detriment of those that come after, then there again Is an opening for discussion. But Editor Miles has attacked neither from that standpoint. Kraschel's selection Is wrong because Utterback Is not a Legion man. Governor Benson is wrong because he "has slurred the Grand Army of the Republic." How an Impartial and fair editorial opinion could arrive at that conclusion we do not know. We are willing to grant Mr. Miles his right, as the right of any American, to express his opinion. But we cannot see his point of view. In fact it U disappointing to have such an outburst come from such a responsible member of a fine organisation, founded with truly worthy pur- ^S«e«-Swrof which ww. fundamentally political. Had Hr. Miles said that the country can stand stronger and more Intelligent leadership in public office generally, we would have been in hearty accord with him. But the men do not necessarily have to belong to one organization or another to be fit and qualified. True. It helps to get votes. But membership In any organization Is not enough of a qualification for responsible positions. IOWA'S LIQUOR CONSUMPTION We see by the reports that Iowa has the least liquor consumption per person of any state In the Naturally, It Is something of an achievement. For years, our state has been hailed, wined and dined as the state where the tall corn grows, and now It seems we also have had another honor heaped upon our heads. However, meditating on the matter a trifle, if Iowa Is 48th In the union, would someone mind telling us just who is first, second, third, etc. And judging It from the Iowa standard of 48th, how do the people In the first five or ten states get any work done? The MARCH OF TIME REQ 0. 8. PAT. OFF.

How should Leo Krzycki, member of the advisory board of C. I. O. is also a member of the national committee of the socialistic party. And so on and on. We ran name fifty more along this line. There Is no communism and socialism In the Iowa farm population and very little any where else In Iowa. Our farmers are one hundred per cent American and will back our government to the limit. They are not swayed by rabble rousers. But the thing we out here In the middle west cannot understand Is President Roosevelt s great friendship for John Lewis and the C. I. O. for as we said In the beginning "Birds of a feather flock together." • • • Why WorkT—Oovemment Will Support Us Toledo Chronicle: There are a lot of fellows running businesses who would not object If the president would step In and show them how their working hours could be cut-down from 14 to 10 Nytnc nothing about from 8 to 8.

Newshawks reported recognizing Ford "service men" as the attackers, and the Ford men were not quick enough to seize photographers' plates revealing that Franken- sieen and friends were given no amateur beating but a standard job of mauling, including well known gorilla tricks.
