The Pope of Rome has a very weighty problem
on his hands. He is called upon to decide whether
or not the Ii-ish hunger strikers are committing
suicide and he has laid the mooted question before
the Congregation of Holy Office. This is the august
body that "settles all questions of faith and
morals." As soon as they make their report we will
be relieved of all suspense and will be told de
finitely the supernatural destination of the heroic
victims of British Imperialism.

The Worker's Business
By Jack Frank.
What interest has an American worker in other
nations' affairs? American workers, say many
spokesmen, mind their own business.
Now, what is the business of an American work
er? He is free to work for other people's profit, or
die of starvation. He is free to vote for people
who, once elected, can do as they please, or keep
away from voting.
When they pass laws against him, he is free to
obey their laws, or rot in prison if he disobeys.
At work he produces, but has no say about
what shall be'done with his product. That is not
If through general strikes he tries to defeat
anti-strike laws, federal troops are sent against
him, because tWe making of laws is not his busi
When American capitalits decide to join in .i
profit-grabbing war, he has to fight their battles
and shut up, because the making of and approving
the war is not his business.
When drafted for military service, if he objects,
thinking that his life, his body is his own busi
ness, he is seized and sent to prison, because his
life is not his business.
Thus we see that the American worker's own
business is: To obey the capitalists and their law
makers, who, through war on foreign nations,
forcibly interest him tn the affairs of other na
tions. The capitalists of the whole world made it their
business to help one another to defend their idle,
luxurious lives in whatever country their position
may be menaced by the workers.
The Big Press of the American capitalists is
very much interested in the victories of the armies
of the Polish landlords.
American Secretary of State Colby is much in
terested in the armies of the Polish landlords and
those of Baron Wrangel.
He promised them help and sent our warships
Workers! Get interested for your own ends, or
they will interest you forcibly for capitalist ends.
Brainbridge Colby, Secretary of State, says Bol
shevism in Russia is on its last legs. But those last
legs seem to have an awful kick in them.
