The ominous word “strike'' is no
longer found daily in newspaper
headlines. Hut this doesn't mean
that labor Is satisfied either with
government labor plans or industry.
It is as far from holding out the
palm of peace now as it was a year
Washington observers have been
forecasting u labor blow-up for
some months and it looks as if
that long-feared event nut in it*
official appearance on February 2.
On that day, burly, hard-boiled
John II. Lewis, head of the United
Mine Workers, thrust a thick wedge
l»etween the American Federation
of Labor and the Roosevelt Admin*
Focal point of Mr. Lewis’ uttack
was Donald Riehberg, who is often
termed “the Assistant I'resldent,"
Reason for the attack was renewal
of the existing automobile code,
which the Federation has bitterly
opposed, in that It permits men to
work 48 hours per week a com
pared to the ,'10-hour week for all
industry, which the Federation
passionately espouses.
You may not believe in Mr.
lewis’ opinions- millions of people
don’t but It is generally agreed
that he is sincere, honest and out
spoken, lie represents the old
time, belligerent type of labor lead
er who bus definite opinions and
doesn’t mind airing them. When
he becomes involved in a verbal
duel, he never wears gloves.
Mr. Lewi* daid flatly that Donald
Itichhorg is a "traitor 1o organised
labor." Me stated that Mr. Itich
berg has deserted hlk'fofiflKr com
rades. It is Interesting to remem
ber, In this connection, that Mr.
Iftehlicrg made his reputation aw a
hard fighting labor lawyer, thut
when General Johnson appointed
him to the post of Nit A counsel,
conservatives feared he would be
excessively pro-labor in his attitude.
Mr. Itichberg’s reply to the union
charge of treason, was thut it
amounted to a demand that he put
union interests above loyalty to his
government. He udded; “If a n
fusul to yield f|‘ Birch a demand be
treason, let those who charge it
make the most! of it."
.Mr, Lewis is often at outs with
his A. F. of L. associates, ami his
opinions might huve been largely
disregarded ns being of a purely
personal nature, bad not A. F. of 1..
President Green followed him up
by saying that the Lewis’ state
ment "reflects the Federal Ion’s
feelings very strongly." Mr. Green
then said that hi' Would shortly go
to the White Mouse with a union
protest against delay in codifica
tion of the tobacco industry.
That brings up another import
ant point in thr widening gap be
tween Administration and labor
leaders. Cigarette manufacturer*,
ufruid *>f unionisation of their in
dustry, will have nothing to do
with tiie proposed tobacco code.
That, to labor's way of thinking, is
bud enough and. it in
finitely worse in the light of the
fact that the NR A chairman is S.
Clay Williams, formerly president
of one of the "big three" cigarette
makers the K. J- Reynolds Tobac
co company. NR A official* have
?a»d several times thut Mr. Wil
liams withdraws from board meet
ings when the tobacco code is being
discussed, in an effort to avoid
charges of prejudice but labor
doesn't seem to be convinced. They
don't call the NR A officials liars
directly but they intimate just
about that.
It is noteworthy that union lead
era have not yet criticised the
President all the criticism is di
rected toward various of his uides,
However, Mr. Roosevelt makes all
present government policies, and
Mr. Kk'hberg, Mr. Williams and
others are directly responsible to
him. it is therefore possible that
the labor leaders will eventually
come out with dirnrt criticism of
the President-* and the potential
political results of that would he

The Reward Of
Good Democrats
From a speech delivered by
Henry 1*. Fletcher, chairman of the
republican national committee, be
fore the New York county Repub
lican Club at Cooper Union, New
York, on Jan. 31, 1935, we clip the
“The country was repeatedly as
sured when the Federal Relief Ad
ministration was set up that no
federal relief aid would, go to any
state until after that state and its
various localities had done their ut
most in the way of contributing
funds for the support of the needy.
The records of the Federal Relief
Administration show that this was
just another pledge of the admin
“During the twenty-one months
period covering the existence of the
Federal Emergency Relief Admin
istration up to September .'!(), 1934,
it contributed 9(1%of the money ex
pended for relief in the state of
Alabama, 97% in Arkunsas, over
95% in Georgia, 98% in Louisiana,
over 99', in Mississippi, 94% in
the rich state of North Carolina,
nearly 94% in South Carolina, over
'97'. in Tennessee and 84% in the
state of Virginia. Compare these
figures with Massachusetts, where
the government contributed only
one-third of all relief funds; with
Connecticut where it contributed
34%, Delaware only 35%, New
York 49%, California 54%, Iowa
ami New Jersey between 55 and
56%, Indiana 61% , Maryland 64%,
Pennsylvania between (14 and 85%,
land even the drought stricken
state* of Karsati and Nebraska
only $4% and 07'V, respectively."
It will be noted that the rest of
the country is contributing very
liberally to the support of the dem
ocratic south and many of them
are much richer in natural re
sources than some of the westerr,
states that were hard hit by the
drouth of last year.
Work on the gutter along the
west side of Fourth street, pre
paratory to the laying of Ine pave
ment, has progressed rapidly the
past couple of weeks and it looks
as if this part of the w-ork would
be completed in a couple of weeks.
Then the balance of the work
will be taken care of and it seems
as if all the preliminary work
would be completed before April]
1 so that paving can be laid as
soon as the weather permits.
The legislature is still grinding
awry and after *ix weeks little
has been done on the three major
subjects before it, liquor, pari
mutual betting and the one-hou*e
legislature. The daily press the
other day said that the spring-like
weather of the past couple of weeks
has made the members of the
house rather restive, and many of
them are anxious to get through
and go home ho they can look after
their spring work. It begins to
look as if the session would last
until May 1.

Our Taxes Cost
More Than Food
What is the largest item in your
family’s budget?
If you answer food, clothing,
rent or similar expenses, on which
you spend the bulk of your income
directly, you’ll be wrong. Taxes
are the largest item of expense car
ried by the American people—and
they lead their nearest competitor
by a wide margin.
Food, the most vital of all nec
essities, costs the nation $7,600,
000,000 a year. Clothing takes $3,
600.000. 000. Rent also takes $3,
600.000. 000, and automobiles dent
the national pocketbook to the ex
tent of $2,900,000,000. Electric
service costs United States’ fam
ilies only $650,000,000.
The national tax bill, by compar
ison, is $9,000,000,000 — a billion
and a half greater than the nation
al food bill. That being the case,
where is the most important place
to start in to reduce the cost of
living ?
These figures will come as a sur
prise to the average citizen, who
thinks only of the sums of money
he spends directly in the course of
day by day living. What he should
realize is that taxation now repre
sents an exhorbitant part of the
cost of everything.
A cut in the cost of government
would be directly and immediately
reflected in a lower cost of living—
ar.d in stimulated employment, in
vestment and industrial expansion.
No other cost weighs so heavily on
individuals and businesses alike—
no other family living expense is
rising so rapidly. It is a historical
fact that extravagant government
promotes depression and discard.
Armour Hatchery Here
One Of Four Located
In Mid-western States
Four hatcheries have been estab
lished by Armour and Company in
western states to aid farmers in
producing poultry which is better
suited for the eastern market and
consequently more profitable for
grower and packer alike.
Announcement of the hatchery
plan wras made by R. E. Pearsall,
vice-president of Armour and Com
pany and head of the produce de
partment at Chicago. The hatch
eries are located at Enid Oklahoma,
Marysville, Kansas, O’Neill, Ne
braska and Bismark, N. D. The
O’Neill and Bismarck hatcheries
will specialize in turkeys under a
new plan calculated to fit the birds
for market earlier in the season
when higher prices can be obtained.
The Armour hatcheries, Mr. Pear
sall said, will be operated like the
most efficient commercial plants.
They will buy eggs and sell chick

"We believe the only practical way
to run a hatchery is on a cash
basis," Mr. Pearsall said, "but we
are not going into this end of the
business to make money. Poultry
can be very profitable to everyone
involved if the product is made to
fit the market. If the birds are not
marketable at good prices, the pro
fits vanish."
“Establishmentof the four hatch
eries is in the nature of an experi- <
ment. They will serve only the
territory in the vicinity of each
establishment, but if they prove
popular with the poultrymen, oth
ers will be opened at our proces
sing plants.”
No hatchery will be established
by the company, however, in a sec-,
tion where there is an adequate
supply of chicks and poults which
will grow rapidly and dress well.
The company has made arrange
ments to obtain thousands of fine
quality turkey eggs from Texas
early enough in the year so that
the poults may be flitted for mark
et by September.
Every flock from which eggs are
obtained will be tested - Hy the
Armour service men. The service
will include following the flock thru
the season to make sure that prop
erly balanced diets are used.

as much energy was expended by *
most of us in an effort to take care
of ourselves as is expended in our
attempts to have the government

need for government relief.—Green
