Stay on the Production
(A plea to Strikers)
(BY JULIUS E. HILL)
You say you’re patriotic;
Then why don’t you show it;
Let everybody know it;
Stay on the Production line?
You can’t show it by striking;
The wheels of defense spiking.
If you are patriotic.
Stay on the production line.
For well you know that every time
Os a strike you go—
Fou’re keping from our fighting
Things that they are needing so.
If you' are patriotic,
And want soldiers eo know it.
Here’s how best to show it:

Reprinted from the World-Herald
Here is what the World-Herald said about the
Nebraska Power Company when it wasn't
angry—when it was impartial and handled
the news without prejudice.
The World-Herald, in carrying out its program
of "rule or ruin" tells you that our Company
is a "wicked thing" and should be destroyed
. . . that our rates are high . . . and that we
are driving industry from Omaha.
It is unnecessary for us to point out that these
statements are totally unfounded. Our Com
pany has always tried to do the right thing
and be a good citizen of Omaha. Our rates
are among the lowest in the nation. Our in
dustrial power rates are an inducement to
industry and have encouraged the expansion
of industrial plants, thereby creating more
jobs for Omaha families.
If your electric rates were low in 1934, as stated by the
World-Herald in the above editorial, then electricity certainly
must be CHEAP now because we have CUT RATES THREE
TIMES since 1934.

Peters by ORSON WELLES
Chicago (For Press Photo Service)—To be born
free is to be bom in debt; to live in freeom without
fighting slavery is to profiteer.” ....
“By plane last night I flew over some parts of
our republic where American citizenship is a luxury
beyond the means of the majority. I rode comfort
ably in my plane above a sovereign state or two
where fellow-countrymen of ours can’t vote without
the privilege of cash, Today I bought my lunch
where Negroes may not come, eycept to serve their
white brothers, and there I ovrheard a member of
some master race or other tell those who listened
that something must be done to suppresse the Jews.
I have met Southerners who expect and fear a Ne
gro insurrection. I see no purpose in withholding
this from general discussion. There may be those
within that outcast 10 percent of the American peo
ple who some dajT will strtike back at their oppres
sors., To put down the mob, a mob will rise. Who
will put down that mob*?
We speak here of the Peace—Black and brown
and yellow men must vote freely in that Peace. We
speak of the Great Powers. But we have a brave
ally in this war, seldom mentioned in these specula
tions. If Europe’s Underground is kept from the
Peace Table, a simpler Peace can be agreed upon.
That Peace, however, will be very short.
The scaly dinosaurs of reaction (if indeed they no
tice what I am saying here) will print it in their
newspapers that I am a communist. Communists
know otherwise. I am an overpaid movie producer
with pleasant reasons to rejoice—and I do—in the
wholesome practicability of the profit system. I
am all for making money if it means earning it. Lest
you should imagine that I am being publicly modest,
I shall only admit that everybody deserves at least
as many good thindgs as my money buys for me.
Sufely my light to having more than enough is can
celle if I don’t use that more to help those who have
less. This sense of rumanitv’s interdependence ante
dates Karl Marx.
Man admitted his responsibility to Man 'when the
first murderer died out to God, “Am I mv brother’s
keeper?” However, those in the current plot a
gainst Librty would drive all social virtues under
ground by calling its simplest expression Commun
ism. The war news suygests that there are worse
terms of abuse. Still the proud citizenry of our own
democratic persuasion do not credit authorship the
eproposition that “all men are created equal” to the
JUSTICE— NOT VENGEANCE
c (by Ruth Taylor)
Perhaps one of the most encouraging signs for
the future, for the world to come after the peace,
was seen in the statement made by Haiie Selassie
shortly after the surrender of Italy.
“Ethiopia is less interested in vengeance for the
past than in justice for the future.”
in commenting upon this state
ment one of the big metroplitan
dailies concluded with the line
'Well spoken. Lion of Judah.” If
we can all attain that state of
mind, there will be ]ittle need to
fear for the future. On such a bas
-is we would have an enduring

We must not make one groifp
great at the expense of another.
We must have equal justice for all
the peoples of the earth. He who
enslaves becomes a slave himself
He who is avaricious is bou'nd
tightly to, and by his chattels. He
who hates his neighbor arouses ha
tred against himself. It is as in
evitable as the ■ laws of nature.
Our spirits are high as Our
troops forge ahead in the invasios
of the European mainland. The
last long relentless push is on. Bdt
this time we will go on to the end
and finish the job. We are determ
-inad that this time there will be

Young lady, does an old TABOO
prevent yenr knowing this
In less enlightened days, women
didn't discuss these things. Now it's
different. If a woman suffers from
periodic cramp-like pain and other
purely functional distresses, s'ne
tries to learn how to help herself.
Thousands of women praise the
2-way help of Cardui. Taken as a
tonic, it usually peps up the appe •
tite, stimulates the flow of gastric
juices, thus aiding digestion and
thereby helping build up energy
and resistance. Started three days
before the time, and taken as di
rected, it should help relieve much
purely functional, periodic pain.
Try CARDUI. A 62 year record
says it may help!
We must remember that justice
is a universal right, applying to all
men equally, regardless of their
station in life, their race or nation
ality, their religious faiths. If it
does not apply equally, it ceases to
be justice and becomes privilege or
prosecution accordingly as its dec
isions ore made.
If we, in the same spirit as Haile
Selassie, put justice before ven
geance. we are on the way to bring
about that dream of a world, of
which Cicero wrote saying: "And
there will not be one law at Rome
and another at Athens, one law to
day and another tomorrow; but the
same law everlasting and unchang'e
able will bind all nations at all
times; and there will be One com
mon Master and Ruler of all, even
God, the framer, the arbitrator and
the proposer of this law. And he
who will not obey it will be an ex
le from himself.”
