End aaPefc Day The of Perfect I Lii p 00 ii SU Priest Taken to Task By Steel Strike Chief President Tighe of Iron, Steel and Tin Workers, Excori ates Pittsburgh Pastor for Open Letter Attacking Strikers and Their Chiefs. M. F. Tighe, international presi- t dent of the Amalgamated Association at of Iron, Steel and Tin Workers, to ft which the bulk of the 400,000 strik- hi ers in the steel industry belong, sent ai the following reply to the Rev. tl Thomas Devlin, pastor of Holy Cross church of Pittsburgh, who denounced ir the leaders of the steel strike as a w menace to the nation in an open let- p: ter to his parishioners recently: tl 'Dear Sir: o "After reading in the Pittsburgh Sunday papers your letter regarding the present industrial struggle on the part of the workers in the steel mills of the country, I confess to a feeling of sincere regret and sympathy, that one of the same faith as myself, and occupying the position that you do. would give public evidence of lack of N understanding on a subject so very t important in the lives of present and : future generations. "If after 36 years of constant com- h munication with the workers in the t iron and steel mills of your vicinity o you have not acquired a knowledge of the miserable conditions under t which many of those workers were a forced to labor; if yodi have not in , those years known of the many many unsuccessful attempts made by these workers to organize for the a purpose of securing better conditionn. and their failure owing to the un- t scrupulous power and influence of i corporate interests, then it must be acknowledged that your powers of observation have not been as acute as i they should be. "It may be that to one who teaches r the doctrine of the lowly Nazarene. •Who had no place wherewith to lay ) his head,' the attempt of the organ ized labor movement to advance the t steel workers to a plane above that is not looked on with favor. It is - true we have this as one of the ex- I amples: 'The poor we have always with us,' but, thanks to the organ- I ized labor movement and to none 1 other, we are fast relegating that I part to oblivion. "When you attack the American I Federation of Labor or any of its agencies you certainly are treading on grounds that at least you should know something about. I For your information let me say - to you, that Mr. Foster is not a vice a president of the American Federa- n tion of Labor, nor a remote official of that organization. He is a mem- a her of the Carmen's union' and acts in the capacity of an organizer. His position is simply that of secretary of a a national organization committee, i composed of 24 international organ-I izations of labor, many of the leaders t of which are religiously of the same ` faith as yourself. The chairman of the committee is as devout as any of sour congregation. But had you, stopped to think and not have lent yourself to the soul-crushing corpo rations, you could have seen that the whole attack was not what Fitzpat rick or Foster was politically or re ligiously. but what could be done to deceive the poor down-trodden wage earners of the steel autocrats. "Far be it from me to endorse or countenance for one moment any of the doctrines of anarchism or other isms, but in this movement neitherI Foster nor Fitzpatrick are issues. The issue is, 'shall the American wage workers in the steel mills in free America live and die and hand down to those who come after them, the heritage of industrial bondage?' "Did it occur to you. that by your action you have simply made your self one of the handmaidens of the greatest and most rapacious trusts that ever shackled the limbs of the toilers, not only in the steel mills,' but in many other lines of industry.; That their position has made it pos sible for many others to follow in their footsteps; that to own a man industrially is to own him both polit ically and if necessary, his very soul, for the seven-day week was one of their policies until the labor organ izations made them relinquish it in some places? "It is no wonder that many of the leaders of the labor movement show an indifference to the church, when they know from actual experience that they receive no encouragement Ifrom that source, but, to the con-. tairt, TiOu ninny of those wno tecrn nd preach the doctrine of the a.therhood of God and the brother iood of man. by their actions give assistance to the very elements that he Christ of Calvary condemned. As the president of one of the 24 nternational organizations of labor vhich are today engaged in the cam maign of striking from the limbs of he toilers of this country the bands if industrial servitude, I protest Boston "American" on India In an editorial on the League of Nations, Boston "American" on Sep tember 7, 1919, says thus about In dia: "Until lately America has never hesitated to express indignation at the oppression by a powerful people of a weaker, nor have we ever hesi tated to give political asylum to those patriots who have dared to rise against oppresion and, having fail ed, have fled to us for safety and .omfort. Quite in keeping with this (refus al to receive delegates of Ireland and Egy)pt) new and strange attitude on the part of an American president in the refusal of asylum to those dis tinguished and patriotic Indians who are now under arrest in America at the request of the British govern ment for having agitated against the continuance of the two hundred years of British oppression in India. The practice of nations, internation al law itself, requires us to give asylum to these Indians, but presi dent's ideas of the "new freedom" and iis weird interpretation of the "right of self-determination of peo ples." his grotesque interpretation of his own pledge that under the new order of things no longer "shall the powerful oppress the weak," has per mitted these East Indians to be ar rested in the United States and will probably permit them to be delivered up to British spies in this country to be transported to British prisons ---, hamneless act. which we shall never live down so long as it is re membered. i Today's Anniversary o ---------- Aristotle. On Oct. 2, B. C. 322, Aristotle, the great Greek philosopher, died. By poets he is called the "Stagirite," from the Greek town where he was Sorn, Staira, on the Strymonic gulf.

"When the campaign of organiza tion was first conceived it was well understood that with the power that wealth at all times is able to com mand, that every agency that the scheming mind of men could con ceive would be employed to defeat the movement, for just as the south ern aristocracy fought to prevent the release of the black slaves, so would the corporation autocrats fight to keep their wealth producers in their power and submissive to their will, "Knowing this, they (the organ izers.) are not at all surprised at anything lhat may occur to thwart them in their efforts, but with a faith that knows no such word as fail, they will go on and on until justice shall sit on the throne of right and the toilers of the steel mills will be emancipated from the ills that they today are suffering from.

TIGHE, "International President." - When only 17 years old he went to - Athens, and associated himself with Plato, in the academy that Plato had r founded on the banks of the Illisus. t For 20 years Aristotle enjoyed the teaching of Plato. His superior pow - ers were at once recognized by his contemporaries. Hle had as a pupil in his early and eager years Alexan - der the Great, future king of Mace don. In Athens Aristotle estab lished a school of philosophy of his - own in the Lyceum--'"the Walk"-- where he lectured. Hence the name "Perapatetic" applied to the school + and its philosophy. He left behind him an enormous number of works- 46; these were carried later to Rome. t They may he classed under logic, metaphysics, natural science, ethics, politics, rhetoric, and poetics. They e are treasure houses for the world; for the influence of Aristotle on hu man thought has continued to the present day.
