    Uncle Sam Was Out Traded
A Nebraska man who has been
in the navy a long time, was in the
congressional office the other day
to talk about the naval appropria
tion bill. lie says that the two
capital battleships which Uncle Sam
is building are absolutely necessary
for national defense even if they do
cost sixty mill ion dollars each to
build. This Nebraska man who
loves the navy admits that if U ncle
Sam had been a good yankee trader
at the time we agreed to cut down
the size of our navy' we wouldn’t
have to be building any of these
expensive ships now. The reason
we have to do it now is that we
actually destroyed and blew' up cap
ital battleships which w'ere just
completed while some of the for
eigners, including Great Britain,
merely destroyed the blue prints.
One of the new ships we blew up
and destroyed was the Washington
—-a brand new ship which was just
finished and cost the taxpayers
over thirty million dollars. But the
Washington was only one of many
ships we destroyed and which we
are now replacing with millions of
new money. Foreign diplomats
who knew they were merely going
to destroy blue prints must feel
greatly satisfied with their end of
the bargain according to some Am
erican naval men who are still
chaffing over destroying what is
now being replaced.
Foreign Rice F«r Beer
One of the biggest breweries in
the country, the Heurich Brewery,
is located near the statue of Wil
liam Jennings Bryan in Potomac
park. A visit to the brewery and
an interview with the brew master
shows that this brewery, like many
others in our country, is now using
rice instead of corn for the manu
facture of beer. This brew master
says that rice is cheaper than corn
and that the rice used here comes
from the seaboard and that origin
of that rice is the orient or some
foreign country.
Government Employees Organize
In answer to questions regarding
organization* of government em
ployees, it can be stated that prac
tically all of the employees of the
government departments are now
in what is known here as the
“AFGE.” This means “American
Federation of Government Employ
ees.” There are so many thousands
of government employees now that
this organization is broken down
into “lodges" or branches with each
branch or lodge having its own
presidents and other officers and
representation in the big or Nation
al organization.
Members usually pay 40 to 50
cents a month for membership and
because of large numbers this mem
bership runs into big sums when
the final total is taken into consid
eration. In reply to “what good
employees get out of such organiz
ations” it can be said that much of
the good is social contact at dances,

times some of their grievances are

Government Spends Thousands
For Tolls
A war in Spain or China or any
place on this globe costs the Am
eriinan taxpayer money. That fact
became known in the discussion on
the new appropriation bill for the
state department. Very few people
know it but trouble in Ethopia or
Russia may cost them thousands of
dollars in telegraph tolls alone. Its
going to cost the American taxpay
ers about $252,000 for telegrams in
1938 alone; maybe more, depending
upon how restless or tranquil the
governments of the world will be
during the year.
The department spent $52,290 for
messages to and from Spain. That
big amount for the Spanish trouble
exclusively. Because of difficulties
in Jerusalem recently, Uncle Sam
speivt $12,000 for the first six
months on cables to and from there.
It cost over $8,000 to telegraph to
Geneva for the first six months and
messages going to and from Rome,
Paris, London and Berlin run from
four to eight thousand dollars each,
for the half year. The telegrams
for Tokio, Japan cost about four
thousand dollars and those for
Nanking, China, run around
$6,000. Abnormal conditions in the
foreign countries cost the Amer
ican taxpayers big sums of money.
Broadcast News To Our
Representatives Abroad
Uncle Sam uses the naval radio
for China almost entirely and so
the government doesn’t pay any
thing for a large portion of Chinese
telegrams. The Navy came to the
taxpayers rescue during the Ethio
pian trouble. Uncle Sam had to
reach Ethopia thru the French,
Italian or British cables. The cost
was tremenduous and also there
was danger of interruption. Then
the navy radio operators solved the
problem. They set up an American
radio station at Addis Ababa and
Uncle Sam carried on his own com
munication thru our navy wireless
station in Ethopia,
Uncle San sends out reports
over the naval radio station nighth
and the receiving sets pick these
communications up in most foreign
countries where Uncle Sam has
representatives. The foreign coun
tries allow Uncle Sam to have these
receiving sets to pick up these
messages from home but they will
not give Uncle Sam permission to
install broadcasting stations in the
American foreign embassies. The
matter now _ broadcast by Uncle
Sam over the world from the naval
station is in the form of a news
letter so that American representa
tives can be kept abreast of what is
going on at home.
The State Department has only
one direct cable service and that is
to the American Embassy at Lon
don. For the information of radio
students who have inquired; the
government does send some instruc
tions to China via navy wireless
but so far as code messages and
important messages are concerned,
these are sent either hy cable or
commercial radio except where di
rect communication by naval radio
is available.
