Irt the December issue they had «h article oft "State Versus Society written by Anthony Elefijimittam. it reminded me very much of the ideologies of Herbert SpenCet in "Man Versus State' and Albert J. Knox's book on "Our Enemy The State." Few things are needed more than to have more people realize the advantages of a free and natural society instead f a state based on initiated force. This is the way Elenjimittam expresses it: "A little reflection on the revolutions of modern times, notably the Russian, Chinese, Fascist, Nazi and Falangist revolutions, will convince anyone that the concentrated power of states is the result of corresponding depletion in social values and nocial achievements. A State whether capitalist or communist, can only thrive at the expense of society. State power and social values today stand at antipodes. State and society today stand at daggers drawn. Victory of statism means defeat of society; victory of society means defeat of statism. "Society produces wealth; the State exploits it, robs it, expropriates it from the social man to t • best advantage of the state officials and their proteges and cliques. Society produces wealth th.ough sheer dint of labor, literally through the sweat of its brow. But the State takes all its wealth through a mere taxation policy or legislative act. The State gets all it wants through Th« Cherry Trie Incident* What actually happened went something like this; Instead of the taxpayers providing $74.4 billion, federal gasoline tax. . . we're already paying 3 cents a gallon in that department now. . . and he the best they could scrape up!wants to jump the first-class post (some of them went broke doing j age rates, which went up last year It) was $63 billion.

That's for 1 But the present-day intrusion of decree on paper. But the citizen, the social man, owns nothing which he himself has not produced through his industry, labour or intelligence. "It is productivity that gives power to society. But it is money raised through taxation that gives power to the state. Society is natural to man. Social order flows logically and naturally from the very make-up of man who, biologically, psychologically and ethically finds his fulfilment in association with fellow-humans. But the State, at its best, is nothing but a badge of man's lost Innocence, a necessary evil tolerated for the sole purpose of securing freedom and security to the common man. The State has no power except what the Society hs.- given it. A limited government of the State, in the fallen nature of man, seems necessary. the government to agre in d- the government to agree in advance to cut spending.

"There is economic strangulation going on in modern states, making society bleed to death. If a poor man opens a tea shop, the State must be informed, complicated forms filled in, and government dues to be paid. Even a simple charitable work of helping the. destitute must give dividends to the government. Government is not the State; but the government bosses and officials often fancy and act as though they were the State. The saying of Louis XIV, T etat c' est moi—'I am the State,' is borne out today even in professedly and nominally republican and democratic governments. The Republic is a mere name; it is monocracy that prevails in the place of old monarchy and hereditary feudal rule. Governments become a kind of personal property of the big bosses. The heads of governments, through the means of the machinery of propaganda and advertisements, can depict as, .objectively black,. and" as good what" is fast becoming an intolerable burden, reducing citizens into slaves of the state, reducing society into a tool of the state to gain enough money and power for the realizations of their machinations. As James Madison said: "The State makes use of the old trick of turning every contingency into a resource for accumulating force for the government.' Poverty, misfortunes and ills of society are all capitalii- eo by state governments to tax the people to the extreme limits. The State grows stronger, but society grows paler, weaker. and more moribund. "This depletion of social power by modern states cannot take place if there is intellectual integrity, honest and critical .acumen in the people. We take things as a matter of course. We easily acclimatize ourselves to Fascism, Nazism, Communism and Capitalism and fancy that their governments are inevitable.

Tb»t is the gospel of sdvation tor enslaved m*A> kind." Robert Allen Reports: False Radio Signals Lured Plane Off Course! WASHINGTON — The Air Force has Incontrovertible proof that the unarmed C-130 transport shot down over Soviet Armenia was deliberately lured off its course by false radio signals from two Russian transmitters. This positive evidence Is the basis of President Elsenhower's press conference intimation that the plane was purposely misdirected so it could be destroyed. The two guilty Soviet beacons are at Batumi and Poll near the Black Sea. Both are notorious for operating contrary to international treaty provisions — to which Russia officially subscribes. The Air Force obtained its conclusive evidence, that the C-130 was tricked off its course 120 miles into Soviet territory, by sending planes over the route flown by the ill-fated transport. The first of these flights was on September 8, six days after the plane's loss with the known death of six crewmen. The fate of the other 11 is still a mystery. In each of these tests the Ba- tumi and Poti radio beacons attempted to decoy the U.S. plane across the Russian border where, presumably, it would have been blasted out of the air by lurking MIGs. On all these occasions the two Soviet transmitters operated on a frequency only one kilocycle away from that of the Turkish beacon at Trabzon, on the Black Sea. The Trabzon beacon is on an had piloted one of a group of seven MIGs that attacked .four fighters from the carrier BOXER. Three of the Reds were shot down, with no U.S. loss. Only one body was recovered from the ocean. It was kept carefully per served in the event Russia brought the incident before the United Nations — which never happened.

The show is about three hours long, a charged, frantic, fast-paced item that seldom is still and Miss VcrdoH is on stage in it for all but about three minutes and ten seconds. She sings, dances, act*, does cartwheels, whirls, Spins, kicks, races, jumps, vaults, leaps and prances all with seeming effortlessness find when the final curtain starts to fall she seems as fresh and bouncy as whert it all began three hours earlier. The next night, in a restaurant next door to this theater, three wearied old chrom.os named George Solotaire, Joe DiMaggio and 'Yotir Reporter were slowly and deliberately going about the dual business of. having a quiet dinner and low pulse-rate conversation when Miss Vefdon, a matinee just behind her and an evening performance yet to give, sailed in. Instead of creeping in as though spavined, she strode in like a Valkyrie, head up, breathing steady and eyes open-and alert. "As an' athlete for some time," said Giuseppi DiMaggio, the-San Francisco Flash, "1 can say that I don't believe any human being can do what she does and if she does, can keep it up for more than a week. It just isn't in the cards — or the muscles." "I am sorry to hear you speak this way," said Georgie S., "because this show not only has an exactly one million dollar advance sale, but is booked .solid for about 47 weeks ahead, which means that with window sales 'Redhead' will be going for almost two years. This means that for one year and fifty-one weeks to come a lot of people are going to be disappointed. Bitterly. Also, although I cannot argue with a demonstrated athlete of enormous prowess, I think this girl will still be in there kicking the premises to pieces two years from now. I have talked to her about this exhaustion bit and she doesn't seem ever to have heard the word." They both looked at m« and I said, "Boys, I'm not the doctor. But I have long since discovered that if a dedicated actress wants to do something, nothing but nothing will prevent her from doing it. They are not people, they are stainless steel. I think Miss V. will be, as Georgie says, in there starring and kicking away two years hence although any man would long since. have succumbed to a heart attack. There is nothing to fear." A creep who has no delicacy Joined up about this time and he said, "After all, the girl's age..." whereupon three gents gave him a hostile stare. One of the thing* never mentioned about an actresi is age. The fact is that Miss Verdon is not any longer 16 years old, and she would be first and up front to admit that. But neither is she ready for Social Security by a long chalk. She is young, but not that young, and a grown girl, but not that old. We three happened to know to the day exactly how old she is and we were not harboring any anxieties on that score. She is young, vibrant, explosively attractive and a great, great performer. We lent the creep on hi* way, looking daggers at his back, and went on to other themes when Miss Verdon rose from her modest dinner of toast, coffee and juices and came by. Mr. Solotaire told her how tremendous had been her impact, Mr. DiMaggio told her it had been the greatest experience of his life and Your Reporter told her she was only great, real great, nothing more. Most actresses would have preened and simpered over this kind of shower bath, but not Miss V. She thanked us quietly, modestly, without pinking or bridling, and went her way. After she had gone back to the theater to gird herself for another three hours of combustion and turmoil, we dawdled over eoffee and finally I said: "We'd best get underway. Curtain will be up at "The Rivalry' in 15 minutes. We can walk the three blocks without haste that way." "Walk! Three blocks!" they cried "You are in*ane. We'll take a cab!" . .

Writing ex cathedra undef the seal of hla great office, in A slick- paper journal called the Ironworker, Brother Lyons recounted much interesting, though humdrum datA from the consecrated career of this dedicated hoodlum, who was called to his reward last Dec. 20. But by some editorial or ecclesi- astical'oversight, Brother Lyons neglected to state that th« late John J. Dempsey was A spectacular scoundrel and traitor to his responsibility as cop and citizen. Such material would have lent aroma, not to say stench, to Dempsey's biography, And the lack is here adjusted out of reverence for the people's right to know. Brother Dempsey was chosen general secretary-treasurer'by another conscientious criminal, the ate Paddy Morrin, or Morln, believed' to have been originally Paddy Moran. Brother Morrin went to Leavenworth from St. Louis, the grand headquarters of the union, ;n 1914 for transporting dynamite across state lines. This was one of the echoes of the historic destruction of the Los Angeles Times by the McNamara brothers of Indianapolis in 1910. Many newspaper workers were killed in this vigorous amenity and the cry of "persecution" was heard across the land for years on behalf of the McNamaras, Morrin, and other high-minded mar- yrs. James B. McNamara was sent to San Quentin for the Times affair and died there. Clarence Darrow got his start as jury-faker In the Times case rials and, thus certified, became : political barroom saint of the >rlginal American Mercury, the tfew Masses and the Worker. John J. McNamara, Jim's brother, pleaded guilty of transporting explosives in railroad passenger earn and got a relatively light sentence although he and hi* staff had caused about 100 explosions in Cleveland, Buffalo, Hoboken, Mt. Vernon, 111., Chicago, Boston and Springfield, Mass. He died at peace in Butte long afterward. Paddy Morrin served 27 months In Leavenworth and got $5 a day from the union. This then was good wages, even for a working stiff. On his return to St. Louis he was acclaimed at the Union Station and at a ceremonial reception by numerous unions attended by exuberant disorder. He served as president for 33 years, retiring in 1948 to go emeritus at $25,000 a year plus J25 a day for illusory! expenses. He died Aug. 31, 1951,1 as heartily hated by most Iron-] workers as beloved by & smaller j element within the fold who enjoyed his favor. He was an unremitting bigot, and ironworkers who did not worship Rt his altar fellingly called him Paddy t h « Priest. He raised the membership from 18,000 scattered and demoralized brothers to about 100,000 and ran up the treasury, of which the late Dempsey became custodian, from a deficit to about $8,000,000. Paddy's pension and others, including later the pension of Brother Dempsey, provoked sullen discontent among the horny-handed toilers in the Fo'csle.

It \» interesting to note that the Soviet Union at one time adopted the notion of PROGRESSIVE EDUCATION which was created In America by John Dewey and a group of socialist intellectuals. Its- purpose was to harp on Individual competition as evil, to abandon patriotism and traditional culture. By the mid 30'* PROGRESSIVE EDUCATION HAD PRODUCED SUCH CHAOS IN RUSSIAN SCHOOLS THAT THE SOVIETS ABANDONED IT. But they very skillfully went on promoting' U for America in their propaganda.
