In the American Issue of January 23rd they again attempt to mislead the public. This in spite of the fact that President Green issued a state ment in Boston on January 18, 1925, in which he declared in favor of modi fication of the Volstead lay to permit the manufacture and sale of beer and light wine, and further declared thSt he will carry out the policy of the American Federation of Labor on this subject, and that he will do every thing within his power to bring about modification. Thus again the Anti-Saloon League's tactics to mislead the people by their malicious and deliberate falsehoods are exposed./ Owing to many inquiries which have been made on us by organized labor and people in many walks of life, as to the truthfulness of the statements emanating from the head quarters of the Anti-Saloon League at Westerville, Ohio, we were obliged to -4-' ,5 Htv Pi Ambulance Service •y •v *V %WSkt Phone 35 v,'je Ub r\ .Sl "fe s 246' HigK Street 111 4 The Anti-Saloon League's Tactics Again Exposed! Funeral Directors 'J1 communicate with President Green on the subject, in order to set at rest these fake news items. As far back as 1919, in the Atlantic City convention of the American Federation of Labor, William Green, then a delegate from the United Mine Workers, signed the first resolution adopted by the American Federation of Labor convention, declaring against prohibition. He was also an active delegate from the United Mine Workers' "organization at the Denver and Portland conventions, both of which went on record in no unmistakable terms for-modification of the Volstead law to permit the manufacture and sale of wholesome beer, and instructing the officers and executive council to do everything within their power to assist in blung ing about modificatioo. President Green was a member of the executive council of the Ameri can Federation of Labor during all of these years, and in May, 1922, the executive council issued an appeal to the electors to support congressmen and senators who agreed to woi'k and vote for modification of the Volstead law in conformity with the expression of the Denver convention of the American Federation of Labor held in 1921. President Green's replies to our in quiry regarding the press reports and news articles which appeared in the "American Issue," the official publi cation of the Anti-Saloon League, we believe are of utmost importance, and Edgar K.

These statements to which you refer, as appearing in the press reports, were not authorized by me in any way whatsoever. I am not responsible nor can I be field re sponsible for speculative statements issued by press writers. I have is sued no statement, either officially or personally, upon these subjects nor have I referred to them in any interview with newspaper men. The statement to which you call my at tention as appearing in the Toledo Blade Bureau issue and the Associat ed Press that I was associated with the Anti-Saloon League is entirely erroneous. I have never been a mem ber of the Anti-Saloon League, nor have I been associated with it in any way whatsoever." Again, under date of February 25 he writes the following: "The American Federation of Labor declared its attitude toward the modi fication of the Volstead act through the adoption of Resolution No. 5 at the Atlantic City convention of the American Federation of Labor and the adoption of Resolution No. 69 at the Denver convention. These ex pressions constitute the official atti tude of the American Federation of Labor toward the modification of the Volstead act. As President of the American Fed eration of Labor, it will be my pur pose, as it is my duty, to make known the position of the American Federa tion of Labor upon the question of modification of the Volstead act, and to co-operate as fully as possible with my official associates in carrying into tVect the declarations of the Ameri can Federation of Labor." The above letters of President Green brand conclusively as false hoods the articles and statements is ued by the Anti-Saloon League through its official organ and offi CITS, who, in this as in the past in ances, have not hesitated to issue false statements in their effort to over up their many misdeeds.

A CORRECTION For some time past the Retail Clerks' Union has been running in lie Press each week an advertise ment containing a list of stores not onducted under union conditions and whose clerks, if any employed, art not members of the Retail Clerks' nion.

The store now employs only union clerks and has signed an agreement with the mion. The Retail Clerks' Union de ires that the public know that the tore is now fair to its organization. WANT PRIVATE POLICE Indianapolis.—Trade unionists de lare that if the state legislature passes all the police bills now before it, there will be no private citizens. The senate has authorized the gov rnor to grant police powers to any person recommended by railroad offi ials. Full police power is being ranted other persons and the State Hankers' Association is urging its avorite cossack legislation. i OkCtlUAV)• Piotscit Ikt WtrjllA ,4 tfie Hahan Patrons and Public In General Do you realize this when sending your DRY CLEANING OR DYEING TO THEHILZBROS.CO.

TRY THfcSCHEME When You Begin a New Puzzle Here are a few tips on the solving of cross word puzzles. Many readers of the Press already may have discov ered them. First, when you start a new puzzle, read through the definitions until you reach one which you recognize, and if you are fairly sure of your guess, jot down the word in the proper squares. Most puzzles contain several words which appear again and again words such as "emu," "boa," "ai," "ra," and several others whose mean ings are so limited that it makes variation in definitions impossobile. Consequently, if you go through the entire list, you will find quite a few words at the beginning which will give you a good start. Another thing to be careful of is the proper interpretation of defini tions. Many words have several meanings or shades of meanings, which are likely to give the solver a wrong impression. Sometimes the word may be used as either a verb or a noun, but the definitions, of course, will give only one meaning. For instance, think of the many ways of defining each of the following words: mop, heat, air, run, view, drop, set. Of course there are no set rules for this fascinating game perhaps that it one reason for its popularity, but in any event these suggestions 82—Agitate y 84— Look for IK—Writing lBitramnt 57—Wood o( t)M I 58—Equal 40—Claw 4Jt—Soak 48—Like 44— Musical lutiwwt ^6—Musleal mete 47—Lock 4«—Unit of speed •O—9llee of meat „-v, Mil—Manages a Warehouse 251 Cottage Street 337-339 SOUTH SECOND STREET 1611 Hamilton —PHONES— 136 Middletown HOW TO 80LVE A CR088-W0RD PUZZLE When the torrect letter* are placed In the white nunce thin puect* will Mpel! nurd* both vertically and horizontally.
