WORKER'S DOLLAR Shrinks to 65 Cents in Buy ing- Power Today Over 1913 Trade Unionism Only Pro tection Against Pirates of Industry and Commerce Washington.- W.i-es are of tw. kinds. Nominal wages and real wages. Nominal wages "consist of the num ber of dollars in the pay envelope. Real wages consist of the purchas ing power of the dollars expressed in food, ciothing, shelter, and the other necessaries and conveniences of life Under our business system prices are fixed by the fiat of manufacturers and merchants. When the price of coal "goes up," it is the arbitrary decree of the coal operators and coal dealers who put it up by refusing to sell for a lower price. The same principle applies ab solutely to the activities of those who own other commodities. The September issue of the Monthly Review of the United States bureau of labor statistics makes public the rea suits of an interesting study of the work of the price boosters in recent years. According to this report these busi ness buccaneers have boosted the price of all commodities which the workers are compelled to buy for the support of their families ,to such an extent that the worker's dollar in June, 1923, had a purchasing power of but 65 cents, as compared with the worker's dollar in 1913. Putting it still another way, price boosters have lowered the pur chasing power of the worker's dollar 35 per cent since 1913. the Pi ice boosting is one of the »most menacing powers the employers have Effective trade unionism is indeed labor's one protection against? the pirates of industry and commerce| It gives the workers an instrument by which they may periodically adjust wages upward to meet, and more than meet, the price boosting of those who own the necessaries of life. mmMM Portland, Ore.—-Present-day propa gandists for trade union "amalgama tion" are communist revolutionists in disguise, declares the executive coun cil of the American Federation of La bor in its report to the federation's annual convention in session in Port land. The Ralston Paint Co. The council distinguishes between the "natural amalgamation" of trade unions in their normal growth and the amalgamation propaganda which has become noticeable during the past year. The former is in line with the pol icy of the trade union movement and is supported by the American Feder ation of Labor. 108 North Third St. Phone 42( The latter is "frankly revolutionary and has for its ultimate purpose not only the destruction of the trade union movement but the eventual over throw of the democratic government of the United States." "Propaganda in the United States," the council points out, "is carried on in accord with the tenets of the Red international, an organization which is completely under the domination and dictation of the Russian communist oligarchy. "The catchword of the campaign in the United States has been 'amalga mation.' "In accordance with the program of the Russian communist leaders, an elaborate program for the alleged 'amalgamation' of various interna tional unions has been developed and secret or semi-secret organizations have been formed with in the interna tional unions for the carrying out of that program. "It should not be forgotten that the advocates of the revolutionary pro gram who are seeking to bring about the destruction of the American trad* union movement through their mis called program of 'amalgamation' ar hostile to every guarantee of freedon Trade Union "Amalgamators" Are Masked Communist Revolutionists SCHEME Of Ship Board Ruled lawful Un- Washington. Attorney Genera Daugherty rules that the U. S. ship ping board's scheme to transfer thi. title of the merchant ships owned by the United States government to pri vate corporations organized unde state charters is illegal. The schemt was devised to avoid government oper ation of the fleet. After the overwhelming defeat of the ship subsidy scheme in the 192:1 elections and later by the United States senate, Albert D. Lasker, then chairman of the board and father of the ship subsidy steal, and Edward Farley, present chairman, conceive* the plan of organizing a number ot privat corporations, with the ship ping board holding a portion of the stock, to which the title and operating rights now held by the board wouli be transferred. It is this Lasker-Far ley plan that .Dangherty's decisioi nullifies. The shipping board has complete authority to operate the fleet until it can be disposed of, but regards gov ernment operation as violating certain vague traditional principles of Amer ican institutions in general and in opposition to the profits of the pri vate shipping interests. The which American labor holds funda mental. "They are hostile to freedom of speech, freedom of press and freedom of assembly. 'They advocate the destruction, the abrogation of the entire bill of rights upon which modern freedom is based. "They repudiate democracy and proclaim without shame or hesitation their desire for the establishment of a dictatorship over the wage eai'ners. "Wrhat is contemplated is not mere ly the amalgamation of various or ganizations which now function sep arately. "Instead, the program is one for complete and thorough disastrous i*ev olution, for the establishment of an autocracy to replace the democracy under which our present status has been achieved. "Our trade union movement must be maintained intact at the highest degree of efficiency and solidarity in order to most effectively deal with the great problems with which we are confronted. "The trade union movement out of its experience and in accordance with the requirements of its membership will develop as it has in the p^st, along evolutionary lines, achieving re sults surely and steadily. "It will resist to the utmost the de signs of self-seekers and of the advo cates of revolution."
