SIX—THE MORNING AVALANCHE Lubfaock, Texos, Thursday, April 2, 1942 dial'4343 For The Avalanche-Journal. Offices i - Standard Oil Admits Withholding Information Concerning Synthetic Rubber Confession js Made To Solon WASHINGTON, April 1. (t The president of. Standard Oil company (New Jersey) acknowledged today that the company failed to give all- information about its synthetic rubber processes to a Navy representative in 1939 but contended that the company did furnish "everything the government could make practical use S. Parish, Standard presi- m?dc this statement a tier O'Mahoney (D-Wyo) had of." W. dent, Sen. challenged his testimony that Standard gave "full information" to the Army and Navy "covering Standard's synthetic rubber activities." "When you testified that you were making full disclosure,'" O'Mahoney asserted, "as a matter of fact you were not." Market Reports The Nation Over . . Spotlight Stocks ..

What does "union" stand for? It stands for unity, the united efforts of the small, insignificant worker to have a chance to hold up for his rights, or a worker in a free country. (AMERICA). We all know if it were not for this unity among workers here in America that the working conditions would probably be just as they are in Europe. Secondarily—Democracy is based on that principle, the equal rights of the different races of people and different clashes of people here in the U. S. Oh! I could write the President of the Constitution, but that isn't necessary for every loyal American knows it. I'm merely trying to put before you the close relationship between the union and democracy. Where have you gotten all o£ those untruthful facts on the defense workers? I'll admit that before war was declared, there were strikes and complications that slowed down production. But being a worker in an aircraft plant here in San Diego, I can truthfully say that production has increased a good 100So since the attack on Pearl Harbor. The statements "of Mahon and O'Daniel are not appreciated by defense workers. Where do they have the grounds to make such living conditions here and in other defense areas. After a worker pays his unreasonable rent, bills, transportation back and forth to work, and the deductions are taken out of his pay. He simply has nothing left. The majority of workers here are only making from $36.00 to $39.00 a week, and under -these conditions one just scarcely live-;, and with the time and 'one-half taken out of this we haven't much [of a salary, The large majority of these workers and especially the single ones are putting every cent possible into defense bonds, but if time and one-half is cut, will have no money to buy these bonds. These workers are not being unreasonable by asking this, for it is a fact that the producers. have a set price that they are now getting for their products, and the workers are merely wanting their share of the profits, which is only Mrs. Cleveland To Pin T^aTCoSS™!^ Flowers On Cadets Of Her Son's Company Mrs. George Cleveland of 2303 Fourteenth street, Sunday morning will be given the signal honor of pinning a flower on the lapel of each member of the company commanded by her son, Jack, when she attends Easter exercises at Texas A. and M. college.

I am dumfounded at sucli a statement. If anyone is aware o: the present situation it is the defense \vorker. My facts for tha statement are as follows: First working hours were increases from eight to 10 and. 11 hours a day, six and seven days a week and at the present time are oper ating to our fullest power for -thi amount of workers, etc. Consoli elated is now working three shifts 24: hours a day. Moreover, we ar surely aware oE the chances of sa botage to our plants. That is why simply can't understand such statement as some of our congress men have made about us not be ing aware of the war. I'm saying next to the Army, the plants know what a job we now have before us.,. a living income. If the wage and hour law -is changed it will be a great toll on the working class of people while still the producers would profit more and would be like the last World war. We would have several millionaires made from this much not wanted war. I believe I'd be safe in saying, over hal/ would gladly give up his Job M the war would only end. Let's don't let Fifth Columnists and big business' stir up the people in other walks, of life by trying to make you'believe all of those facteous facts. Don't slander and say hard tilings to these workers for of all things we now don't want a. rebellion of labor. After all this labor is just as essential as.the Army to end this war with Vmerica still on the top. The old saying, "you can lead a orse to water yet you can't make iim drink," might be a small com- larison here. The workers are in slants and most of them sincere American citizens doing their best, but if you continue to slander them hey will get'dissaisfied, instead jraise them, pat them on >ack, give them just a amount ot praise and then see the difference. We all are aware of the fact that human nature is that way, one qan do more by giving praise than by saying harsh words. Now to you 129 business men, would amaze you. Let's all just sit down, cool of£ and compare the facts from the little man, that is essential lo win this war. After ""all I believe that when everyone casts his vote this last election for our much beloved President that they did so by thinking him capable of his position. He has proven that to most of us, now let's give our President some praise for what he has done, even though there is lots yet to be done, if we, one and all, large and small get together and back our President and Congress instead of fighting them we will soon tell great increases from all sources. I think the men and women at plants would say, tnd this by saying, "We'll keep them Flying," just cooperate with us.
