Dr. Walsh Sees Public
Rebelling Against War Labor's Demands Vice President of G. U. Cites Fall of France Through Similar Course Dr. Edmund A. Walsh, S. J., vice president of Georgetown University, last night rebuked labor for con tinued wartime strikes and “ex cessive demands,” warning that the American public “will not idly look on and meekly submit to become another France.” Both Congress and labor, by their failure to recognize the need for aacrifices at the cost of social gains, are following much the same course that caused France to fall into Hitler’s lap like an "over-ripe apple," he told an audience in Memorial Continental Hall. In presenting the third lecture in a course oij "Amer ica Faces Total War,” under aus pices of the School of Foreign Bervice. Sees Axis Promptings. Dr. Walsh declared that “the enemy must chuckle to behold Con gress tediously debating whether or not to abolish the 40-hour week in Industry and hesitating over the problem of strikes in essential plants.” As in the case of France, he warned, the dictators have even directed their radio broadcasts to labor in the United States,” warning American workmen not to tolerate any emergency measures designed to increase production or decrease • walkouts.” The taxpayer is “scraping the bottom of the barrel for Mr. Mor genthau and getting ready to sell the barrel itself next year.” the Georgetown educator declared, while American boys are fighting for $21 a month. In the face of these sac rifices, he reminded, “it is with amazement, and growing indigna tion that the American public hears of new threats, new strikes and ex cessive demands.” Calls for Steady Hands. Tt was particularly to the latest demands of the C. I. O. upon Gen eral Motors of Detroit that Dr. Walsh directed the attention of the audience. He said. “If such a spirit persists in labor relations, I know not how long the American people can be restrained. They simply will not look idly on and meekly submit to become another France." The need has come, he said, for cool heads and steady hands on the wheel of the ship of state. Dr, Walsh" will give his next lec ture the evening of March 27 at 6:30 o’clock.
