Read The Press. i (WNU Service) David Webb&Sons FUNERAL HOME PHONES 48-78 ROSS AT TOP QUALITY POPULAR PRICE PLAIN END SAVE THE COUPON By CHESTER M. WRIGHT Mexico City (ILNS). President Manuel Avila Camacho today told me that he hopes for intensified activity on the part of the Pan-American Fed eration of Labor and that it should be a most important agency in the devel opment of hemisphere solidarity. At the same time the president stated that he desired Luis N. Mo rones to serve as labor delegate for Mexico at the forthcoming meeting of the International Labor Organization, created under the Versailles peace treaty, to be held October 26 in New York. It is impossible to overestimate the importance of this announcement, which came during an interview that lasted nearly an hour. Coincidentally the CROM, headed by Morones, has just received an ex tremely warm invitation from Presi dent Green to send fraternal delegates to the A. F. of L. convention in Se attle. This is the first time President Green has asked for fraternal dele gates and of course the invitation will be accepted. President Avila Camacho is a most interesting figure. He has a real grasp of his problems. His manner is democratic, naturally, but not os tentatiously. When I entered his office with Luis Morones and Robert Haberman he left his desk and sat with us in an intimate semi-circle A Changing Maids Again JOHN flfcAWEPMAH President Camacho Asks CROM Leader to Attend World Conference—Executive's Action is Heavy Blow to Tottering Toledano Movement in Mexico. Morones is to Represent Mexican Labor at IL0 Meeting Toledano on Way Out In the couse of a talk touching many world problems, I mentioned the coming I. L. O. Congress. It was then that he made his announcement as to Morones. He turned to the vet eran labor labor and said, "I was just going to ask you if you would go." Nothing that has happened since President Avila Camacho took office will so shake and demoralize the fol lowers of the fatuous and prosperous Lombardo Toledano. The Toledano star is headed toward eclipse and his own C. T. M. has just about finished with him. It has done what C. 1.0. has done in the U. S.—gone to in tolerable lengths of unreasonable and insupportable conduct, with the cur rent strike against U. S. movie distrib utors as a glaring example. The U. S. admirers of the loquacious Lombardo might as well begin hunting a new coffee house idol. Ready to "Crack Down" President Avila Camacho is em phatic on the subject of fifth column activities in Mexico. He has said he will use machine guns if necessary. How easily that may become true is felt much, more keenly here than in the U. S. It may be possible, at an opportune moment, for Nazi to seize Guatemala and cross the Tehunantepec border in sufficient strength to create a "diversion" for Mexico and the U. S. President Camacho and President Roosevelt would make interesting and very human luncheon companions, with perhaps as much historic im portance attached to the Roosevelt Churchill conferences. Principles Not Forgotten This president of Mexico is not for getting for a moment the principles of the Mexican revolution, but defi nitely and deftly he is taking out of the misinterpretations of those prin ciples the fantastic and impractical adventures that so intrigued the so called intellectuals of the United States who thrive on the daring phrases and bizarre actions that are far away enough to lend enchantment without the possibility of damage. President Avila Camacho's parting words were a plea for faith in de mocracy and unity of all democratic nations. "I hope the western hem isphere may serve as example to the world," he said. HEALTH ASSOCIATION IS BEHIND TAX LEVY TOPAYFORT-BCABE The Butler"County Tuberculosis and Health Association has determined to again actively support a campaign for a tax levy for tuberculosis care at HAMILTON, OHIO, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 1941. i the coming election on November 4, it was announced this week by Dr. H. A Moore, Oxford, president of the or ganization. This decision, reached at the executive committee meeting of the association, places the organiza tion behind the levy, similar to the levy supported by the association in 1940. The 1940 levy, although failing to pass, received a 58% favorable vote of the people of the county. "Several counties in Ohio facing a tubei*culosis care problem similar to ours in Butler County failed to pass levies in 1940," Dr. Moore said. "State statutes required a 65% majority vote for such levies. Our association, co operating with other Ohio tuberculosis and health associations, succeeded in having the State Legislature change the requirements in order that a ma jority of votes cast should decide such issues. We feel that the citizens of Butler County will support this much needed levy in order that those suf fering from tuberculosis can be prop erly cared for," Dr. Moore concluded A committee of the association will meet next week to plan a program for the support of the levy.

Young, Jr. 2,000 Bass Placed In Butler Streams Two thousand bass, supplied by the United States Department of Com merce, Bureau of Fisheries, located at Rochester, Ind., were released in streams of Butler County Monday morning by representatives of the But ler County Sportsmen and the Hamil ton chapter of the Izaak Walton League. Representing the Sportsmen were Municipal Judge E. N. Davidson president, and Robert M. Stoeckel Raymond Martz, and Gilbert Condo represented the Izaak Walton League, Washington, D. C. (ILNS). Out lawing of "rotten housing" to benefit the public is suggested by James T. Daniels, former manager of the Jack sonville, Fla., Chamber of Commerce, in an article which advocates public low-rent housing as a device for sav ing the taxpayers' money. Declaring that slums cost more to maintain than it would cost to elimi nate them, Daniels writes in the Au gust issue of "The American City" that the only practical solution is re placing the slums with decent homes for low-income families. Slum Areas Costly "Slum areas do not pay their own way," says Daniels, and cites official Jacksonville statistics to prove it. In one slum area, called Hansontown, the net cost of municipal services ex ceed the net income from taxation by 140,000 per year. This is a net loss to the taxpayers as a whole." In all Jacksonville slum areas, the annual per square mile cost of police and fire protection alone averaged $113,500 against tax collections of $,300 for the same area. Compar CHASE THi Mod*!

"It is evident," Daniels points out, "that there must be a certain tax ex cess from the other areas of the city to make up for the tax deficit of the slums." Public Housing Profits In contrast, Daniels notes the rec ord of the first low-rent public hous ing project in Jacksonville. All of the occupants came from bad housing and 75 per cent of them from the two worst slums in town but there have been no arrests, only one minor fire, and no cases of juvenile delinquency. During the same period, delinquency increased in the rest of the city. Encouraged by the increase in prop erty values and the stability in the neighborhood resulting from the proj ect's good record and appearance, pri vate enterprise has built a higher priced subdivision immediately ad joining the low-rent homes.
