An Open Letter From Townsend Organization RUSS WALLER, <W UPPER DES MOINES^ ALCKXNA, IOWA Dear Sir: I am sorry you are "biting the hand" that has fed you these many years, namely the UPPER DBS MOINES. They and we, the Townsend organization, have been \only exercising the DEMOCRATIC RIGHT of free press and speech. After all I wrote Mr. Breen a private letter concerning the Townsend Plan and he could have answered me privately; but he chose to have his answer published in all the newspapers in the 6th Congressional District. I expected Mr. Breen would have at least studied the Townsend bill before he expressed his opinion, and I certainly expected you would have also. Seeing his discussion of the Townsend Plan was all wrong and therefore he misled the public as to qur issue and furthermore he put me in a bad light to all the readers, I answered his letter publically and I will answer your's the same way. If you wanted the matter dropped why did you come right back and praise Mr. Breen's letter, and, in a long paragraph, tell all the things the Townsend organization should or should not do in regard to the war effort, and trying to put the whole group in a bad light? Let me tell you, whenever anyone makes a false statement or misrepresents our .plan, its officers or members, I am conning right .back to defend them with every ounce of energy I have. As for our organization "not doing anything" for the good old U. S. A., I wUll say that we have pledged an all-out effort to win this war, but we are not stopping there because we have pledged ourselves to an all-out peace effort. Winning the war won't mean a thing unless we see that Democracy survives, and we must fight for that eternally to hold it. Now,, to cite some of the things the Townsend organization has done to help win the war and the peace.. Our national organization is buying a BOMBER, our local group is buying a BOND, we helped raise funds for the U. S. O. and donated "books for the same cause, we sold war stamps in a special drive, we made garments 'for the RED CROSS, we made the bond day parade a sucess by furnishing FLOATS, BANNERS and FLAGS. We have 12 men serving with the armed forces to whom we have sent boxes of cookies. We sponsored a CIVILIAN DEFENSE MEETING, also a FOOD FOR DEFENSE MEETIN1G. We fought for the pay raise of the boys in the service and now we are working to amend the Social Security Act to grant $100.00 per month to all who have served with the armed forces, for at least 12 months after this war is won. Your last statement in regard to $200.00 per month is a deliberate misstatement and as to the organization making a "raid on the treasury" it is very untrue. Mr. Waller, when the Townsend T>Jan becomes a law which it eventually will', and you find yoursel.f down and out, you may apply for an annuity regardless whether you were a member of our organization or not. We are working for the welfare of all the people and not any special groups. What more CHRISTIAN MOVEMENT could anyone belong to? Thank you, MRS. A. M. ANDERSON, President, 6th District Council of Townsend Clubs. (The above was paid -for by members and friends of the Townsend organization.)

JU needed for War 44 part of a plane "What'* it good for?" Guns, tanks, and maybe In the barnyards and gutties of farms and in the basements and attics of homes is a lot of Junk which is doing no good where it is, but which is needed at once to help smash the Japs and Nazis, Scrap iron and steel, for example, Even in peacetime, scrap provided about 50% of the raw material for steel. It may be rusty, old "scrap" to you, but it is actually reftntd steel—with most impurities removed, and can be quickly melted with new metal in the form of pig iron to produce highest quality steel for our war machines. The production of ste*l has gone ' up, up, W, until today America is turning out as much steel as all thereat of the world combined- But unless at feast 6,000,000 additional tons of scrap •teel it uncovered W»ptly, the full rate of production cannot be attained or increased; the necessary tanks, guna and ships cannot be produced, The rubber situation is also critical. In spite of the recent rubber drive, there is a continuing need for large quantities of scrap rubber. Also for other waste materials and metals like brass, copper, zinc, lead and tin. __ The Junk which you collect is bought by industry from scrap dealers at established, government-controlled prices, Will you help? Jfjrst—collect all of your waste material and pile it up. Then--seU it to a Junk dealer, give it to a charity, take it yourself to the nearest collection point, or get in touch with your Ix>cal Salvage Committee. if you live on a farm, consult yojwr County War Poard or yowr farmf ment deafer.
