Some reasons why I enjoy The
Butler County Press:
1. They are friend of Labor and
the Common Man.
2. I get more "common sense" read

papers ten times the size—with long
drawn out articles to fill space.
3. The hue to the line and the
chips fall as they may.
4. Their articles are condensed and
to the point, like "off again, gone
again, Flanigan." and—

This is in a very special sense la

is at stake. We have earned the right
to share in responsibility and help
work out problems. We can get crit

unions and our families. We are proud
to have a responsibile share in the
operations of the War Manpower
Commission. We have helped woi-k out
the l-egulations of voluntary manpow

The result has been a volume of

Federal Investigation Aske
Of Florida Mass Arrests
Washington, D. C. (ILNS).—Tnves
tigation of "unwarranted and illegal
arrests of 25 Negro workers in High
lands County, Fla., is urged in a let
ter sent to Assistant Attorney General
Tom C. Clark by the Workers Defense
Sheriff Doyle Schumacher made the
arrests on charges of vagrancy. The
sheriff, alleging that most of his vie
tims were found loitering around "juke
joints" and places of suspected gamb
ling activities, has threatened to "con
tinue the haul until the manpower
shortage is over."
"There is good reason to suspect
that these Negroes were arrested on
false charges, as were the Ft. Lauder
dale workers in February and March
1944, and that this is a further at
tempt to coerce and intimidate Flor
ida Negroes," DWL national secretary
Morris Milgram told Clark.
"We understand that the sheriff
excuse for the arrests are that he
isn't tolerating idleness among those
able to work during war time," the
WDL letter said.
The following correction appeared in
4-small town paper:
'Our paper carried the notice last

Symbolic Red Cross Emblem
WASHINGTON, D. C.—Once again,
next month, the scarlet emblem of the
American Red Cross will appear in the
windows of American homes, symboliz
ing the financial support of the nation
in supporting the manifold services of
that organization to American fighting
In every nation of the world, this red
cross has long been the symbol of uni
versal humanitarianiam, both in peace
and in time of war. Today it is worn
by medical corpsmen of all armies and
navies serving the wounded. It pro
tects hospital tents, ships, planes and
trains. Painted on each of the Inter
national Red Cross ships bearing food
parcels to prisoners of war and ex
changed prisoners homeward, it is a
guarantee of safety from acts of war.
To the giver doing bis part to fulfill
the $200,000,000 goal of the American
Red Cross in 1945, it represents his per
sonal part in supplying the material
things which add to the morale of the
American serviceman whether hospi
talized or able-bodied.
The window sticker means more
than dollars contributed to the Red
Cross," Chairman Basil O'Connor de
clared. "It means service clubs, can
teens, recreation rooms and clubmo
biles for the men in war theaters."
To the American Red Cross, each
window sticker is a family's request to
the Red Cross to continue its responsi
bilities on behalf of the son in Italy,
the neighbor's boy half a turn around
the globe in the Philippines, and the
brother fighting on Ihe Western Front.
It is the expression of faith of the
American people that Red Cross will
maintain the supplies of surgical dress

chicken dinners, the old pastor went

Studying the situation a moment,
the preacher reached into his lunch
box, took out a chicken bone and tied
it to his fishing line.
As the bone dropped below the
water level, the false teeth jumped
from the creek bottom and clamped
firmly on it. The preacher then tauled
them out with ease.

Americans are proud of their ar
chitecture. The fine old Southern
colonial, Dutch colonial and Cape
Cod houses across the land reveal
American ingenuity in producing in
dividualistic evolutions of Old World
conceptions. Portsmouth, N. H., not
ed for its three-story facades and
tall chimneys, takes particular pride
in the Langley-Boardman house
erected in 1805. Note the gracefully
rounded Ionic portico and Palladian
window. No less important are the
homes of Spanish and French colo
nial influences in the West, South
west and Southern seaboard gems of
Americana. These are all part of
the American tradition our men are
fighting to preserve. To equip, train
