Patriotism Of U. S. Firms Unshaken By Arnold Attack WASHINGTON. Feb. 18—(By David Lawrence)— In all the attacks that have been made against the New Deal in the last seven years or more, none has had greater justification than the misuse of governmental power to assassinate character and impugn patriotism. Justice is never attained against this sort of thing in the courts of WillcoxShow £ e/ « n * eC J asse j ! Mesans See ... | / o Be Conducted Awards Listed law or even in the courts of public opinion. Thurman Arnold, assistant attorney general, has reopened a closed case to take another fling at anAmerican company whosr patriotism ovei •I • I "When war came again to Europe, Bausch and Lomb notified Zeiss that it considered the contract 'suspended. Thus, to all intents and purposes, the contract had been in- **thefamOOS operative for some time before the department of justice brought its LAWRENCE action a period of 37 DICDAlVH Yet the department of justice got tfiyrt\ 11,11 its publicity just the same. The press announcements from the department resulted in such headlines and innuendoes as "U. S. industry, stocking axis war machine" and "German monopoly on gun lenses ended" and "Claim Nazi, U. S. firms in war pact" and "U. S.-Reich firms accused of plot on war goods" and "U. S. breaks Nazi control." Navy Knew Facts One wonders why the war and navy departments and their intelligence services didn't know all this before the department of justice acted in March 1940. The truth is they knew the exact opposite, that the companies were patriotic. The secretary of war under date of August 28, 1940, wrote: "The relations between the years since its founding has never been questioned, but which today finds itself the victim of abuse and innuendo by the antitrust division of the department of justice. Testimony Given Testifying before the temporary national economic committee In public session, Mr. Arnold said: "Take our indictment of Bausch and Lomb. There is something which nobody knew anything about until a large amount of money was spent in a grand jury proceeding XXX "Before a grand jury in New York, we are constantly uncovering startling instances of German control of defense industries as well as illegal price-fixing among American concerns x x x "At least 31 industries producing vital war materials are awaiting mo | t Medical Care Cost Varies WINDOW ROCK, Feb. 18—Cost i| medical care in the nine government hospitals and the three sanatorium* of the Navajo Reservation varies from a low of $2.57 per day ^ ^ 14IU1U „„ „.„„„.„ „.. „,,,„.„. per person at Fort iWngate Hospi-| for a( j d i t j oll al funds and for more Hi to n high of $4.83 at Leupp, ac-| n(J j uries an( j f or more power tording to figures recently released | for his antitruEt division and - JJ - J ty Dr. W.

Measures Claimed It has become the fashion hereabouts for bureaus and government agencies engaged in normal civilian pursuits to tack themselves on to the defense program in some way in order to get more funds for more jobs.

It is amazing that American citizens, whose patriotism is publicly attested by the secretaries of war and navy, should find it necessary to issue such pamphlets. Says the company in a foreword: "Although the case has been settled by consent of both parties and neither the consent nor the decree is held by the courts as an admission of guilt, untruthful and in- dence in your company for excellence of workmanship, productive ability and patriotic co-operation.' A similar letter was written by the secretary of the navy last August, but apparently there is no letup by other persons in authority in pointing the finger of suspicion The various businesses involvet may derive some consolation from the fact that there is nothing really personal or vindictive in the smeai campaign—it's just another way o forcing funds out of congress by the new technique of shouting "fifth column." It's only one of a number of ways of pulling the wool over the eyes of congressmen who have billions to spend for "defense," and. of course, Thurman Arnold's division isn't the first to use the strategy. o ;— Mother Of Arizona Resident Succumbs DRAGOON, Feb. 18—Word has been received here of the death of Mrs. Leora Penrose, mother of Mrs. Elmer Walker of Russellville in Washington, D.
