Victory likewise came to three

which is a means of introducing today’s theme on the men
of parts of the Democratic party who are scabbing it for the
In the May issue of The National Republican released May 1», there is
some food for fruitful thought.
Who are Hie Republican publicity hacks using .to demons!rate what they
Avant to show the country? Professed Democrats, the men who are feeding in
the public through by virtue of their membership in the Democratic party and
who publicly accepted its program and policies.
First .there is old Senator Ellison D. (Cotton Ed) Smith (D. S. ’.), who is
'quoted on Page 1 of the National GOP organ as commenting that the initials
FDR have a new connotation. According to this Democrat, FDR means
“Federal Debt Raiser.”
Another juicy quote is published, also on Page 1, from Representative Louis
f.utllow (I, Ind.) who attached “bureaucracy and bureaucrats” for the part
of Hoover, Dewey anil Bricker.
Next in tin* lineup comes Representative J. F. O’Connor (D, Mont.) who
takes sharp issue with the Democratic farm policy in tin* Republican paper ami
says “1 never dreamed we would send needed farm machinery to foreign coun
tries and tints deny tlie needs of our own farmers.”
Representative Ludlow’s little contribution was used by the national paper
of tin* Republican party to support its big smear piece thato pened with this
statement: “The government of the U. S. 1ms ceased to be a constitutional gov
ernment. The theory .that the government at Washington Is a government ‘of
the iieople, by the jteople,’ lias been abandoned.”
Nice going for a Democratic congressman, licit? In tills writer’s lodge he’d
be thrown out on his large white can.
Of course there are other quotes from Republicans anti from the trained
seals of the Republican party among the nationally circulated columnists who
write for the daily press, DO per cent of which is standpat Republican in view
point and reactionary in tone.
Which side are these gentry on?
There is a national political campaign in full swing right now. And here
they are, aiding and allotting the enemy.
Free spt*ech? That might be their word for it. In most other vocabularies
Ihe term is treason and back-biting.
There are many others lite GOP writers have omitted for lack of space who
do an equally eilicient job for Republican parly promotion. But maybe some
of these are tyo close to be publicly excised in the party organ.
While on the subject of Republicans, perhaps It might not be amiss to touch
Up Governor Thomas E. Dewey a little.
Arthur Sears Henning, who serves as an intellectual barman for Colonel
Robert R. McCormick’s Chicago Tribune, has surveyed Dewey's |N»sition as an
American Firster and Nationalist, and reported him sound. In fact. Henning
recommends unanimous support by the GOP for the New York governor as its
candidate against President Roosevelt.
Although some of Dewey's recent utterances didn't sit so well on Colonel
^McCormick's isolationist stomach. Henning serves some bicarbonate of soda
■with the thought that “many nationalists are disposed to waive their objections
^to the Dewey s]ieech in the interest of the most vital objective: .the deficit of
the Roosevelt regime, believing that their views wills prevail in the writing of
The plat form .to which, the V- Jy.*1*1!’!*!’
Most significant .trend in the prim
ary was the fact that 31% of Hie Re
publicans cast their votes for labor
indorsed, pro-Roosevelt candidates. Of
the ent in* Los Angeles county vote cast
in botli Demoeratic and Republican
primaries, about .■»!% went to candi
dates backed by labor stud openly
pledged to fight the reactionaries. More
than one-quarter of the .11% came
from registered Republicans.
For every three lk*mocrats who
voted for win-the-war progressive can
didates. one Republican junt|»ed party
lines and did the same, taking advan

registered Democratic candidates per

It has been long and universally
recognized that the ]»ostal employees
are highly eilicient, skillfully trained,
and underpaid by comparison. During
the present war, practically no defer
ments have la*en asked for them or
granted. More than 3,"i,(XM( postal em
ployees have te*en inducted into the
armed forces. This has thrown a huge
additional burden upon the remaining
employees and the manner in which
the greatly increased volume of mail
has lieen handled in spite of the loss
of such great number of .trained em
ployees is high tribute to tH* loyalty
and efficiency of those who have had
to carry on through longer hours and
greater production.
While workers in private industry
have also had their work-day and
work-week extended, it is almost uni
versally adopted practice (and the
practice is universal in all occupations
coming under the jurisdiction of the
War Labor Board, and establislied by
Congress) that those workers receive
compensation at the rate of time and

receive pay for overtime at only a

Avery Files Libel
Suit Against Paper
Feelings Are Hurt To The
Tune Of One Million
Chicago (FP). Sewell L. Avery’s
feelings are hurt—to the tune of one
million dollars.
Avery, board chairman of Montgom
ery Ward & Co., filed a libol suit for
that amount in federal district court
here against Publisher Marshall Field
for what he termed “false, scandalous,
malicious and defamatory statements'*
in article in Field's Chicago Sun.
The article ap)M*ared May 15 as the
first in a series called Sewell Avery
vs. Tlx* People.
Picturing Avery as a defender of
law and order, the suit charges that
the Sun “acclaimed tiie action of tiie
administration and violently attacked"
Avery in "a des|M*rate effort to offset
tiie public indignation which swept
across tla* country lM?cause of the re
cent seizure of Ward's.”
In reply Field, wh.get up his pajier
lien? to combat the America First doc
trines of the Chicago Tribune, said he
lielieved that'“tiie people are entitled
to know the government was
eventually driven to taking action.”
The libel suit against tiie Chicago
Sun is part of 11m* eJalsirate Avery
t*chniiue for fighting the New Deal.
Still in Hie courts is a similar million
dollar suit filed by Avery against The
