PHONES 48-78 ROSS AT

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
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
Changing Maids Again
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
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.
IS BEHIND TAX LEVY
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.
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
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. Charles
G. Greig, executive secretary of the
association, will dircct the campaign

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

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

able figures for an average residential
area are $16,200 for police and fire
protection and a tax return of $131,200.
"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
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. In addi
tion, local business men have profited
