SEC FEWER SEDITION CASES REPORTED THAN IN FIRST WORLD WAR New York City (ILNS).—In a re port on war-time prosecutions for al legedly subversive speech and publi cation, the American Civil Liberties Union notes fewer sedition cases in World War II. "There were only 45 federal cases of all sorts up to May, 1943," the re port says, "as against a total of al most 1,000 such cases in the first World War I corresponding period." About 125 convicted persons are in prison, and a few more are in jail awaiting trial. The largest group are members of obscure religious sects, convicted for conspiracy to obstruct the Selective Service Act the next largest are members of the German American Bund. The government has invoked the Espionage Act in 23 cases involving 95 persons 30 persons have been con victed, 15 released, and 50 are on trial or awaiting it. Three cases, in which prosecutions were dropped, were brought under the peace-time sedition act. Early in the war there were a few o s e u i o n s u n e s a e s e i i o n laws, lip to tin present the Post Office (Prieemer-OrimGo* PAUL A. SICK FUNERAL HOME DAY AND NIGHT SERVICE 422 N.

It has been the Union's policy not to intervene where the indictments show a "clear and present danger," or where a connection with enemy agents is established, except where the "fundamentals of due process are in volved." The relatively small number of sedi tion cases, the report holds, is appar ently due to the slight opposition to the war, the general absence of hys teria, and the intelligent application by the Department of Justice of the clear and present danger test laid down by the Supreme Court in the last war.

The city man ager said "a fireman driving a cab when an alarm sounded would be like ly to reach the scene of a fire a lot quicker than if he were at home." Under arrangement with taxi com panies, firemen are permitted to use their cabs in answering fire alarms. flVBSOB1BB FOB TKB PBE88. 5 Sons in War, Union Father Offers to Run Train, China Washington, D. C. (ILNS).—Giving five sons to his country isn't enough for George Parkins, former railroad engineer and member of Building Service Employes Union, Local No. 84, Fort Worth, Tex. Perkins wants to get in the scrap himself. At present Parkins is working as janitor for the Fort Worth school system, but he has felt the urge to get in the fight. He presented himself to the proper authorities and told them he wanted to run an engine again. Where? He wasn't particular. He told them he would go to China, or any other place on the globe where he might be needed. Noise Fought As Waster Of Labor's Energy New York City (ILNS).—Maybe you didn't know it, but National Noise Abatement Week has just ended in principal cities and industrial com munities of the nation. The week was part of the 1943 wartime campaign of the National Noise Abatement Coun cil to reduce unnecessary noise in war industries, offices and homes, as a manpower conservative measure and an aid to war production. The council will award plaques to cities achieving outstanding records in noise abate ment. A feature of the campaign is a poster by Howard Scott, bearing the words, "Quiet!—Noise wastes energy, dissipates manpower, slows war pro duction." The pre-war machine tool industry, which did an average annual business of about $100 millions, has grown to a war industry with a monthly output valued at $130 millions. v 'ON PAT DAT, BUT BONDS- COAL FROM THE ANDERSON COMPANY DELIVERED BY Union Drivers GIVE US A TRIAL You Will Be Satisfied! Phones 47 and 160 AFL MINE WORKERS OPPOSE LEWIS' REAFFILIAT10N Springfield, 111. (ILNS).—The exec utive board of the Progressive Mine Workers of America has formally asked the American Federation of La bor executive council to reject John L. Lewis' application for re affiliation of the United Mine Workers of Amer ica with the AFL. Declaring readmission of the United Mine Workers would be "constitution ally impossible" as long the Progres sive Mine Workers hold an AFL charter as the only AFL international mine union, officials of the PMWA said they were confident the AFL executive council "would not stoop to shoddy trickery to void the PMWA charter." The letter addressed to the execu tive council in Washington, was signed by PMWA President Lloyd A. Thrush, V i e-P resident William Cx*ompton and Secretary Treasurer John Marchiando. The AFL council is scheduled to consider the Lewis petition at its next meeting in August. Asserting that the 1938 AFL char ter held by the PMWA guarantees its jurisdiction and identity as the only AFL mining union, the letter con tinued: "We cannot believe that the AFL executive council would now shame lessly disregard principle and permit the entry into its fold of the high priest of dictatorial unionism, even though the organization he (Mr. Lewis) purports to represent has much greater numerical and financial strength than the PMWA. WORKS FUNDS APPROVED San Diego, Calif.—Voters here re cently approved a charter amendment creating a capital outlay fund which empowers the city council, by vote of at least 5 of its 7 members, to levy and collect assessments or taxes dur ing any fiscal year for creation of the fund, thus giving the city authority to accumulate money for public improve ment beyond the current budget year. LAW PROTECTS BULLFROGS Topeka, Kan.—Bullfrogs now enjoy the same protection as fish, as the re sult of recent legislation. The State Game and Fish Commission is work ing on regulations governing the catching of them. Elks Flag Day Ceremony In cooperation with the Veterans' of Foreign Wars the B. P. O.
