INDUSTRIES IN THE SOUTH
Billions of dollars have been
spent in the South during recent
war years on new industries and
Fighting services. As the south
has gained, the north, east and
middle west have lost.
The explanation is simple. Sou
thern congressmen control the
purse strings of the nation and if
money is to be spent, it must, in
their opinion, be spent “where it
will do the most good”.
The rorth ,east and middle west
voted for it and there it is.
THE OMAHA PUBLIC SCHOOLS
The controversy surrounding the
closing of the schools waxed warm
last week end. It was climaxed
by the claim of Attorney G. H.
Sieg that the Board of Education
is more interested in protecting
bondholders than in operating the

Adequate hot water, provided by automatic

Efficient GAS refrigeration protects the food

that sufficient revenue is avail
able to pay a living wage to school
teachers and other employees, if
the board of education would use
bond reserve funds now on hand
and later d.efault on principal pay

Everyone concedes that the
school employees are underpaid.
But, according to Mr. Sieg, the
School Board wants to increase
taxes so as to pay high interest
rates to bondholders and not only
fail to raise wages, but close the
schools to boot.

THE MAKING OF A SOLDIER
How can a man be trained to be
come a soldier? Of course, he
must have a strong body and thor
ough rigorous training he must be
made tough of sinew. He must
be taught as best he may be “the
science of war". All this done for
weeks and months and, maybe
years, is he a soldier? Does he
ever become a soldier until he has
known battle experience through
which he must be tested? Until
he has met this test, no one can
tell what the result may be.
On the parade ground at the mil
itary post, the man who drills the
best, under fire in battle may be
have with far less gallantry and
effectiveness than the most abject
failure of the “awkward squad”.
Whether they are good or bad,
men of every race and color and
creed are being sent to their deaths
to win the war, or win freedom for
all men everywhere, or win dom
ination over other races and peo
ples and destroy liberty.
Out of the welter of these con
tending forces will come soldiers;
millions of them, mass killers, to
roam the earth and make it deso
All this must be done in THE

JOHN L. LEWIS AND LABOR
John L. Lewis, President of the
United Mine Workers of America,
founder of the Committee On In
dustrial Organization, recently pro
posed a reunion between the Am
erican Federation of Labor and the
Committee for Industrial Organiz
ation. The plan was opposed by
labor heads and politicos.
Under the leadership of John L.
Lewis, the CIO. organized the
Steel Industry, the Automobile In
dustry, the Packing Industry, and
a large part of the Airplane Indus
try. In the newly organized un
ions in the industries mentioned
wages and working conditions
have been improved. And in the
coal mining industry the wages
and the conditions of workers have
been bettered in every way. AND
UNDER JOHN L. LEWIS THERE
IS NO COLOR LINE. This fact
