Washington (FP)—And “they kicked the rascals in,” was the top
crack here Nov. 6 in the wake of the devastating Republican victory
across the country.
Sharply repudiated at the polls, the Democratic National head
quarters in the swank Mayflower hotel presented a picture of dispair
as employees kept phones busy hunting jobs. The “crying towel” was
really out and tempers were sharp.
When Gov. Tom Dewey went on the air to express thanks for his
landslide re-election in New York he pointedly neglected to mention
any help from organized labor. He carefully included “the rural
Somebody paid a lot of money to put Fascist Upton Close on a
nation-wide chain election night. Close offered listeners an exclusive,
personal word from Republican National Chairman Carrol Reece claim
ing victory for the “Republican system of government.”
And Herbert Hoover, the last GOP president, tipped the play
when he told the country that the results prove “that the Republican
party is the party of the right,” and voters chose that direction while
the “whole world is driving to the left and a socialist economy.”
The election was not an unqualified success for the reactionaries
because of the victory of Representative Vito Marcantonio. A burr in
the saddle of most Republicans and polltax Democrats, Marc came
through handily despite terrific opposition.
Another GOP spokesman, Comfhentator Hans von Raltenborn, ob
served that the election was a choice “between two philosophies of
government,” and agreed with Tom Dewey that the GOP would not
“control the lives of our citizens.”
Since the Republicans are pledged to investKate, study and repeal,
why shouldn’t they start at the White House and look into reports
about a major general getting himself quite wealthy in the priority

Strike Closes
Food Chains
Denver (FP)—Approximately 80
per cent of this city’s retail food
trade was tied up when some 1,250
grocery clerks and meatcutters
struck more than 100 grocery and
meat markets demanding increased
wages, reduced hours and better
working conditions.
Involved are about 500 members
of Local 634, Amalgamated Meat
Cutters & Butcher Workmen and
750 members of Local 7, Retail
Food Clerks Union. The strike
took place when the unions’ con
tracts expired after 45 days of
fruitless negotiation with the
Mountain States Employers Coun
cil, representing 41 of the stores
The clerks were demanding
an hour for a 40-hour week
compared with their present
cents hourly for 48 hours. The em
ployers’ best offer was 98 cents
an hour for a 48-hour week. The
meatcutters seek $1.25 an hour for
40 hours compared to the present
90 cents an hour for 48 hours.
Management offered $1.15 an hour
for 48 hours.
The employers’ council also de
manded elimination of the present
closed shop clause and exclusion
of managers and assistants from
union membership.
The strike hit mainly at chain
