properly organized on the industrial
field. The problem is not more poli
tics, but solidarity among the work
ers empjoyed. And when solidarity
once takes hold of the workers there
will be no public Opinion worth any
thing. There is no public outside of
the working class. What is ignorant
ly termed public opinion today is
nothing more than those poor dupes
of workingmen or women who, be
cause they do not happen to be on
strike, deplore the temporary incon
venience (?) they are put to. And
this again cannot be taken as wholly
true either. We" see time and again
where the "public" becomes quite en
thusiastic during a strike, sometimes
more so than the striker's themselves.
In the last instance, this "public"
scheme is but another method by
which the ruling class hoodwinks the
simple ones into believing that the "
strikers are an isolated handful of
destroyers, in no way connected with ;
the rest of the community.
In conclusion, let me say, that:
Once the workers of the world be-'
come conscious of their historic mis
sion as the dominant class in society,"
on whose shoulders rest the burden
of the future, there will be no need,'
for politics politics will be dead.
Yours for Solidarity,

HERE'S A PROPOSAL-HOW'D YOU LIKE YOURS?
"How did he propose?"
"eH didn't. That is, not just like
that. I never did believe much in
proposals anyway. Whenever I
thought he was approaching the sub
ject, I would evade it. That doesn't
mean that I didn't love him,
"It happened upon a beautiful
moonlight eevning last summer. The
moonlight didn't go to his head, I
know, for I was wearing a gingham
dress two years old, and wasn't look
ing particularly good. We were sit
ting in the porch swing. He said: M
have been thinking a good deal about
you of late. More than usual. Would
you consider being engaged to me?'
"That sounds pretty prosaic,
doesn't it? Not a word of love.
"He hesitated a moment, and Pll
admit that my heart was beating at
the rate of about 1,000 beats a min
ute. He went on: 'We know that we
are very congenial. If you think that
you can consider me in the light of
a husband we'll go in and tell your
mother.' We did.
. "There wasn't any billing and coo
ing about the manner in which this
young man proposed. Some girls
would say that he was too matter df
fact. I think not. We understand
each other perfectly, and are looking
forward to a long life of companion-'4
This is the way one young man'
proposed to his lady love.
Tell us how the one man in the
world proposed to you. Of course he
must be the ideal man. And the man
ner in which he asked you to marry
him must be the ideal way.
If you have never had a proposal
and certainly no girl ever reaches the
age of twenty without having had at
least one or two tell us how you
would like Prince Charming to offer
you his heart.
