United States Children’s consultant,
Miss Evelyn Smith, stated Monday
that only seven hundred illegitimate
Negro babies had been bom to Eng
lish women and Negro soldiers out of
wedlock. Recent London newspapers
stated that 10 thousand such children
were bom in England during the war.
Miss Smith said the number of ille
gitimate Negro children was small
compared with the number fathered
by all American G. I.’s in England.
An estimate of more than two thou
sand includes only children for whom
soldiers made allotments.
M. W. Smith
We are approaching Decoration
day, and we should all take time out
to pay tribute to our loved ones. That
have paid the very sacred debt that
we must all pay, sooner or later. We
must pay tribute to that group of sol
diers of the American World Wars I,
II; the Revolutionary War.
They died dn the battlefield. We
should make a sacred pause, and say
a word of prayer, when we are lying
flowers on their graves and hope that
they will be remembered, for we all
must walk the lonesome road home.

THERE IS a widely accepted be
ief that American workers have
keen exploited by employers. This
popular conception holds that the
increases in labor’s^ wages and
velfare are only the direct result
>f exerting pressure on these em
ployers. Meaning, pressure in the
form of banding together into
anions and armed with strikes
and walkouts. To a degree, these
means have bettered the lot of
American workers. Circumstances
have forced paths of action.
In sjme cases, inconsiderate
employers have worked hardships
upon employees. In all fields of
Endeavor there are persons and
groups oblivious of anything save
their own interests. Often these
few must be budged from their
positions. It would be folly to
say that workers’ rights never
need protection. But likewise
foolish to draw a hard and fast
dividing line representing em
ployers as exploiters and unions
Wage ONE FACT which
Paradox forms the keystone
of the “exploitation”
thought trend is the huge in
creases in wages of labor during
the past 25 years. Union groups
point to this as the hard-won
Booty of a continuous war with a
greedy employer army. True,
wages during this period have
skyrocketed to levels unthought
of in 1919. But, surprisingly
enough, there has been no in
crease in labor’s share from the
income of industry during this pe
Actually, the share of labor out
of the income of industry has not
risen or fallen measureably dur
ing that time. It has been steady
I regardless of the ups and downs
of unions. In 1909 among manu
facturing industries 9 r/< of em
ployees were unionized. In 1945
the total was 45'/». However, dur
ing this period the wage earners'
portion of the gross value ol
manufactured products remained
almost stationary—about 16'/c.
Production A LARGER income
Regulates to industry means
the worker’s share is
larger. Production makes the dif
ference. Workers were wretched
ly paid a century ago. They were
paid, however, in the same pro- i
portion to what they produced as
our workers today.
Production per man hour in
creased greatly in the last cen
tury. The workman’s pay jump
ed. This increase came about
through investment by American
people in those factors which
would raise production. Superior
plants and better tools were set
up for a larger production and
higher income. Some of the most
important factors that bettered
labor’s position were contributed
by the employers and investors—
the so-called “exploiters.”
It is not hard to recognize the
high wages of America’s work
men today as the logical off
spring of a society which encour
ages competition and individual
initiative. By continuing to give
business the go-ahead signal,
we’re setting the stage for great
er gains and benefits to labor. By
permitting too much power to fail
into the hands of irresponsible
union groups and government
bureaus, we are defeating our
own purposes. Brains, perspira
tion, and initiative given free rein
in a democratic society represent
the only real approach to a work
