ft A convincing plea for edditional
United States financial support of the

.Under thei nternational agreement
which set it up, UNRRA’s funds are
provided by the 31 member nations

For 1946, UNRRA will need a Sec
ond contribution, equal to the first
from each of its 31 subscribing na
tions. From us it wil need at least
$500 million by December, 1945 and
another installment early next year
to meet food needs for the first 3
months of 1946. These will be the
months of lowest ebb for the devas
tated nations. Congress must be ready
to meet these additional payments if
food is to reach these nations in time.

Why Labor Should Be Represented On The
East Liverpool School Board
I East Liverpool Public Schools need the goodwill and cooperation of labor in
finding solutions for its problems.
Three-fourths of all children attending the East Liverpool Public Schools are
the children of working people That being true, is there any good reason why
representatives of Labor should not be chosen to fill the two places on the School
Board to be voted for on the Non-Partisan ticket on November 6. If your answer
be “NO”, then cast your vote on election day for

“Housing is pitifully inadequate. In

President David Dubinsky of the In

Union to fill a council vacancy created
by the death of President Edward
Flore of the Hotel and Restaurant
Employes International Alliance.
A member of the council from 1994
to 1936, Dubinsgy was expelled along
with others who helped form the CIO.
Although he had been a leading con
tender for a council seat since his re
turn to the AFL in 1940, Dubinsky’s
election came as a surprise to those
who had expressed to see the seat go
to John L. Lewis as the condition for
his bringing the United Mine Workers
