Sthey wish li he would be more prac

In Russia the masses were already i'
starving and suffering intensely
when the bolsheviks began thelir
Id drive. They wanted peace and
bread. To them the famous words
il1 of the communist manifesto truly VS
applied: "You have nothing to lose a
but your chains." To -apply those ai
words to the workers of America is
nonsense. They have much to lose I sc
from industrial and. social chaos. s1
They are "bourgeois" in their think- ct
iiig and outlook on life as any law- i
yer or prosperouis farmer. They el
carry life insurance and help to sup- m
ac- port the parish church and pay their le
wu. grocery bills and enjoy credit with U
of their storekeeper. They have faml- al
lay ilies first and hardest, When they n1
srs. strike, they do so in the hope of win- st
aw- niig quickly certain tangible bene- ti
ind fits, and they wiU not stay out after h
the possibility of winning those beue- 0'
iwn fits no longer exists. . s

of the problems incidental to sweeping P
ned cliiages in this direction. Justice ti

c to years ago a government in which the -r

ed by another body, a sort of a sub- a
limated American Federation of La- 0
bor, in which delegates elected by a
I workers would sit and reconcile the
conflicting interests of the ijodustries5
which the workers controlled not a
only with each other, but with. the n
general public. Harold Lakki, ah
