Try Flushing Excess Poisons
and Acid Thru Kidneys
And Stop Getting Up Nights
35 CENTS PROVES IT OR
When your kidneys are overtaxed i
and your bladder is irritated and pas- j
sage scanty and often smarts and |
burns, you may need Gold Medal
Haarlem Oil Capsules, a fine harmless
stimulant and diuretic that starts to
work at once and costs but 35 cents
at any modern drugstore.
It’s one good way to put more
healthful activity into kidneys and j
bladder — you should sleep more
soundly the whole night through. But
be sure to get GOLD MEDAL — It’s a
genuine medicine for weak kidneys.
Don’t accept a substitute.

JOHN L. LEWIS AND THE
UNITED MINE WORKERS
Newspapers of the country since
the strike in the “Captive Coal mines”
began have been making a “whipping
boy” out of John L. Lewis, President
of the United Mine Workers of Amer
For more than a half century the
United Mine Workers Union has lived
and grown. When they were first or
ganized, the country had no compensat
ion laws and men worked in the most
dangerous types of employment, includ
ing mines, and “Assumed the Risk of
Their Employment”. That is, if they
were injured while at work or killed
neither the miner nor his surviving
widow and children received any bene
fits. In those days miners worked in
gas filled mines with open light flames
on their caps and as a result many liv
es were lost through explosions and
fires. There were no safety devices and
laws compelling them to be adopted
and enforced. Wages were low and
living conditions of the miners were
little or no better than those of the
hogs. Schools for the children of min
ers were miserable makeshifts for the
education of youth.
These deplorable conditions, j
thanks to John L. Lewis and his assoc
iates, have been vastly changed for
the better. Miners, black and white,
South as well as North, receive decent
wages. Tens of thousands of them
have purchased homes, reared splendid
boys and girls who are serving their
various communities and country in
every field of human effort. And the
benefits have not come to the members
of the Union alone; all workers have
One old question still remains un
settled; THE CLOSED SHOP. That
is, all workers in an industry must be
long to the union, if they work. Stated
in another way, Union men refuse to
work on a job with non-union men. It
is not in any sense a new question with
John L. Lewis; it has been with us
since unions were first formed in Am
erica. Organized industry insists that
for labor to-demand a 100 percent mem
bership which it enjoys, is depriving
workers of their Liberty. Labor coun
ters by saying simply that it but fol
lows the example of modern business
and industry, which, “if you want to
know something” are rather well or
Public attention at the moment
is focused on the United Mine Workers
and John L. Lewis, their President.
But the fact remains that the United
Mine Workers organization is the only
large organization in the country, the
government of the United States in
cluded, which practices democracy for
all the members of its far flung empire
In it there is no discrimination on ac
count of race, creed or color. And it
works always to raise the standard of
living for its members and, therefore,
the standard for all men and women
the country over by so much.
It is our hope the strike may be
settled in the ‘Captive Mines” and in
all other industries. But nothing is
settled until it is settled right.
We think too many burdens have
been heaped upon the President of the
.United States; that he should have in
his cabinet persons wise enough and
brave enough and strong enough to
deal with such problems as strikes
present in this emergency. That would
free the president from the embarrass
ments which flow from personal con
troversy with the leader of any seg
ment of our population.
We shall find a solution for our
present labor troubles. The sons of the
workers of this country will of neces
sity become the vast majority in our
If their security is threatened by
strikes and lockouts, don’t place the
blame for it on John L. Lewis, but ra
ther believe the threat to grow out of
the policies and practices of the past
few years which sought to ‘make every
one equal by pulling all men down to
the lower levels” so that there would be
no rich and poor, but only the poor; so
that the fortunate would become the
unfortunate, to change our dream of a
society of the blessed for a society of

AND A GREAT AMERICAN. Would

THE BRITISH START FIGHTING
At last Great Britain has begun
an offensive action in North Africa,
after we had about despaired of her
ever shooting a gun in this war since
Russia received and absorbed the full
shock of Germany’s armed might.
Here in the United States about
all we could hear was the fine; the mat
chless oratory of Churchill. But the
reports of military action now to re
lieve the terrific pressure on Russia, is
most welcome news. Interspersed
with it, however, is the suggestion that
Britain expects the United States t<*
send men and planes to take over a
part of the fighting in North Africa
Disquieting as that may sound, every
one who has followed the trend of ev*
ents, surely expected it.
At least and at last, we have ac
tion by British troops.
ONE OF THE FREEDOMS
The new's dispatches tell of an
army colonel who has suggested to his*
soldiers what churches they may aria
may not atend. That is the Hitler way
One of the FOUR FREEDOMS
your Commander-in Chief declares
must prevail is “FREEDOM OF WOR
That is not the first instance ot
Hitlerish utterance we have heard, nor
Hitlerish action, either.
All of them are wrong who would
Hitlerize anything in this country.
And anyone who does so, is not one
whit better than Hitler. It will be use
less to preach against Hitler in this
land of ours and do the very things to
our own people which we condemn Hit
ler for doing to the peoples of Europe.
Our duty is to preserve such fre«
dom as we have and gain for all citiz
ens who are denied any need of it.
