'Immediate Relief for Unemployed"
was the subject of discission at the
Wednesday night meeting of the Omaha
socialists. State and government pro
ductive . enterprises, reclamation, refor
estation i, and permanent road building
were proposed as proper and profitable
solutions of the problem.
The socialists arranged to appoint a
committee to draft a plan of action to
be submitted to the legislature this win
ter. Methods of financing the projects pro
posed as a means of doing away with
unemployment were discussed and some
of the things proposed wero:
Direct Issue of government notes that
would be full legal tender.
A tax on land values.
And, chiefly, the complete socializa
tion of all collectively used Industries.
There "was a unanimous opinion that
conditions would only be temporarily and
Partially Improved until socialism in its
entirety was seoured.
However, th members attending the
meeting agreed that . "reforms" under
capitalism should be taken as it was
possible to secure them, rather than to
spurn-every effort at, alleviation until
the whole socialist plan could be adopted.
