What*s On Labors Mind !
There is a flood of bills in Congress propos
ing to pass laws against labor unions
THE ENACTMENT OF THESE PENDING BILLS COMPREHENDS THE COMPLETE DESTRUCTION OF ALL FORMS
OF UNION SECURITY. THEY SEEK ABANDONMENT OF TB E CLOSED SHOP, MAINTENANCE OF MEMBERSHIP AND
OTHER FORMS OF UNION SECURITY THAT HAVE PREVAI LED IN THE U- S. A SINCE THE BEGINING OF TRADE
THE ENEMIES OF ORGANIZED LABOR ARE BENT U PON THE ULTIMATE DESTRUCTION OF THE LABOR MOVE
MENT IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. THE HARTLEY, BALL, RAFT BILLS ARE DEFINITELY DESIGNED TO
COMPLETELY CRIPPLE LAEOR. THERE CAN BE NO QUES TION ABOUT THAT.
THE FATE OF PEACE, THE FATE OF WORLD COOPERATION AND WORLD ECONOMIC SECURITY LIES IT THE
LAPS OF THE AMERICAN INDUSTRIALISTS. HISTORY HAS PROVEN THAT WITHOUT A STRONG TRADES UNION
MOVMENT, INDUSTRY WOULD NOT CONTRIBUTE TO THE ATTAINMENT OF WORLD PEACE AND SECURITY DE
MANDED BY THE COMMON PEOPLE THE WORLD OVER.
IF THE ANTI-UNION DRIVE SUCCEEDS IN CONGRESS, IT WILL HURT EVERY WORKER’S POCKETBOOK AND
EVERY HOUSEWIFE’S SHOPPING BAG. IT WILL MAKE E ACH ONE OF US LESS SECURE IN HIS JOB AND HIS FUT
THE TIME TO ACT IS RIGHT NOW—TODAY—WRITE OR WIRE YOUR SENATORS CONGRESSMEN AND PRES
IDENT TRUMAN. DEMANDING THAT THE LEGISLATIVE ATTACK UPON THE VERY ’EXISTANCE OF ALL LABOR
ING PEOPLE CEASE.

May we first of all thank you sincerely for your tolerance and
understanding during the trying period just ended. We deeply re
gret any inconvenience you may have been caused.
Honest differences of opinion existed between the Union and
the Company. In fairness to its customers, the Company insisted
from the outset that the dispute be resolved here in our territory.
The agreement just reached through collective bargaining negotia
tions and conciliation came after assurances by the Union that it
was a free and independent bargaining agent.
Now that the strike is over, telephone men and women every
where throughout our territory are being welcomed back to their
jobs. We assure you that we will work as hard as we can to get back
to regular day-to-day operations as quickly as possible . . . and to
carry forward our plans for constantly improving and expanding
The overall cost to the Company resulting from the wage settle
ment amounts to about $4,500,000 annually, of which some $720,000
will be incurred here in Nebraska. In reaching this agreement, we
did everything- we could to see that the wages we pay are fair to all
concerned and not unreasonable in their effect on the rates you pay
for telephone service.

Now 9s The Time For Good Gardeners
To Join Together Over A Sociable Cup
WHEN spring’s in the air, it’s
high time for good gardeners
to get together for a sociable eve
ning and compare notes on favorite
theories on seeds an<f exposures.
You’ll bountifully fulfill your host
ess duties if you provide sweets
and ample beverage supplies to
spice the conversation.
A treat that’s sure to appeal to
spring-time appetites is a plateful
of tiny open face cookies filled
with varied sweets. A light crisp
confection is best to co-star with
jelly and fillings. It’s a good idea to
serve decaffeinated coffee so your
enthusiastic gardeners can spice
their conversation with extra cups
without losing sleep later on. Sec
ond cups are no trouble, if you use
the new instant decaffeinated cof
fee. Just add hot water, if the tem
perature's right for a piping hot
beverage. Or if the evening’s sud
denly warm, just dissolve the in
stant decaffeinated coffee with wa
ter from the tap and add ice. In a
minute you’ll be assured of a tink
ling glass of rich, full-bodied coffee.
A fluff of whipped cream adds ap
peal to the iced glass. As a festive
touch try mixing the decaffeinated
coffee with chocolate drinks.
A rolled pastry cookie is best for
the jelly filling. Stamp circles with
a biscuit cutter. Use a thimble dip
ped in flour to cut out the centers
from half of the disks. Place a small
spoonful of jam or preserves on
the lower circles, top with the cut
out circles, and bake until they are
lightly brown. Serve either hot or

CAPT. EARLE CONOVER
On a huge sign displayed across
the front of a store in my neigh
borhood may be seen the words,
“Their Here’’. Listed below are
some of the articles for the sale,
the badly-needed, post war, home
Every time that I’ve seen that
sign I’ve asked myself, “Whose
‘Here’ is this, after all? Does it
belong to one group?”
Ellis Amell, Former Governor of
Georgia, recently lectured in our
city, using the thought-provoking
subject, “Whose America Is this
Anyway?” Let’s think about it! ’
While America was discovered
and colonized early by certain nat
lonal and religious groups, through
out its entire history immigrants
globe have settled in it. So, from
the very first, America was some
thing more than a one-group, one
Yet in many places and in many
times some of our fellow citizens
have lived so selfishly and so
blindly that they have deprived
others of their own birthrights.
"WE THE PEOPLE”
The Preamble of our constitution
may well be a "must” reading for
our citizenry: “WE, the PEOPLE
of the United States, in order to
form a more perfect Union, estab
lish justice, insure domestic tran
quility, provide for the common
defense, promote the general wel
fare, and secure the blessings of
liberty to ourselves and our pos
terity, do ordain and establish this
