FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 1941. AFTER-WAR PERIL EMPHASIZED Danger of an economic, collapse after the war and the urgent necessity of planning now to avert the danger were emphasized by William Green, George Meany and other Labor Day speakers. Green demanded the immediate start of planning to cope with unem ployment at the end of the defense program. He warned that the moment defense production stops, millions of workers will inevitably lose their jobs and the worst depression this nation has ever seen may ensue. The American Federation of Labor, Green said, had called on President Roosevelt for the start of planning now "for expanded peacetime produc tion which will take up the slack of war production when the time comes." "We have asked the President," he added, "to invite representatives of business, finance, labor and agricul ture to sit down with government rep resentatives and draw up a long-range program. This is only common-sense insurance against economic collapse." Nothing except the problem of win ning the war can be more important than the planning action asked by President Green. It should begin at once, be pushed with all possible speed and the nation should be kept fully JOE HOLSTEIN at LIBERTY HOME Seventh and Walnut Sts.

FlTfERAL 1 THE SPOT FOR REAL ENJOYMENT MOOSE HOME At 8:45 P. M. British organized labor is taking a realistic and hard-headed view of aid to Soviet Russia. While not relaxing in the slightest its opposition to Com munism, labor recognizes that giving of all possible help to the Russian armies is now the best way to deal a blow at Hitlerism. The attitude of the British workers was made clear at the annual Trade Union Congress, just held at Edin burgh and attended by 600 delegates representing 6,000,000 trade unionists. The meeting, by unanimous vote, ex pressed its "sincere satisfaction with the alliance formed with Soviet Rus sia" but drew the line against con verting the war co-operation into any closer relations with the Communist party. Refusal to co-operate with the Com munist party was dictated of course by recollections of unfortunate ex periences with the party in the past. Sir Walter Citrine, secretary of the Tx-ades Union Congress general coun cil, emphasized that the congress had no intention of collaborating with the British Communist group because, he pointed out, it has proved itself un trustworthy. This was a mild way of putting it, in view of the fact that the British and Russian Communists for years did their best to disrupt and destroy British labor oi-ganization on the economic and political fields. A furore was caused at the meeting by charges that people in high places hope that Russia and Germany will exterminate each other. The specific accusation was made that Britain's Minister of Aiixraft Production, Lieut. Col. Moore-Brabazon, held this view— a view which has been expressed by many Americans since Hitler invaded Russia. It was further alleged that Moore-Brabazon had expressed the hope that through this mutual exter mination, Britain would become the dominating power in Europe. "I hope the government will remove informed of its progress and of the necessity for action. o JOB DISCRIMINATION FOUGHT More than 60 prominent union lead ers and labor editors in New York have given their unqualified endorse ment to the objectives of Governor Lehman's Committee on Discrimina tion in Employment, says an an nouncement by Industrial Commis sioner Frieda S. Miller, chairman of the committee. Replying to a letter sent them by Commissioner Miller, these leaders, representing virtually all branches of organized labor in the state, declared they would be happy to do everything possible to co-operate in the commit tee's campaign against undemocratic employment practices, which has as its objective equal opportunity for all regardless of race, color, creed or na tional extraction. A few months ago Governor Leh man appointed the committee, under the State Council on National Defense, to deal with the problem, pointing out that discriminatory hiring practices deprive our defense effort of needed workers, in addition to contradicting our democratic way of life. Commissioner Miller's announce ment is good news. The discrimination the labor representatives oppose must go, if America is to remain true to its ideals. As Jacob Rosenberg, presi dent of Local 802, American Federa tion of Musicians, said: "We do not inquire into race, creed or color when we call upon Americans to make sacrifices for the maintenance or defense of the democratic prin ciples which underlie our form of gov- TAYLOR )IR1X RS Ambulance Service Chairs and Tables Rented Phone 35 17 So. Street SOCIAL and CARD PARTY Every Friday Night COMMENT ON WORLD EVENTS Hamilton, Ohio from its ranks those who are reaction ary and irresponsible enough to make the statements they have and, in ef fect, desire the defeat of the Soviet Union," said the delegate who made the charge against Moore-Brabazon. Citrine declared he was "startled" at the charge and added it was a "very serious position if the accusa tion can be substantiated." Interesting accounts of the heroic defense of Warsaw by the city's work ers when Germany invaded Poland two years age are just coming to light. "Poland Fights," a bulletin issued by the American Friends of Polish De mocracy, New York, says that the de fense of Warsaw was "not only a deed of heroism, it was a great achieve ment." It goes on to say that when the authorities left Warsaw on Sep tember 5, it was to be surrendered without a struggle. The account con tinues: "But the workers' organizations, and, following their lead, the entire population, decided to continue the fight. The organization of workers' battalions began. "Meanwhile, anti-tank trenches and barricades were being made in the suburbs. On the eleventh, German tanks penetrated the western suburbs. They were repulsed with heavy losses. Warsaw women threw bottles of petrol at the tanks and set them alight. More anti-tank trenches were dug. Streets were mined. Day and night the city was subject to ferocious bombing and artillery fire. "But gallantry could not take place of planes and anti-aircraft guns, nor of food and water. When Warsaw ca pitulated there was food for only three more days and munitions for only one day. Yet one member of the Defense Committee, the labor leader Niedzial kowski, refused to sign the declara tion of capitulation. 'The working class does not surrender,' he said, 'the workers continue their fight.'" ernment. We do not ask a man where he comes from or what his antecedents were as a prerequisite for the purchase of defense bonds. Then why ask him these things when he seeks employ ment?"
