WHY ORGANIZED LABOR
SNIFFS. Mr. Shepard Butler, a
sharp-eyed reporter-who works for
the Tribune, looked over the military
parade Saturady night, got 'his sys
tem filled up with enthusiasm about
it and then went back to his office
and wrote a real story. He states
that the Illinois naval reserves had
"wicked little field pieces." And he
"A murmur of interest went over
the crowd as the gray-clad cadets
from N6rthwestern Military acad
emy hove into view. These had the
most warlike equipment of all a file
of silent, neutral-tinted automobiles,
one an armored car."
Maje. McCormick is having edito
rial fits wondering why organized
labor sniffed with suspicion at the big
parade. Does Maje McCormick
know that organized labor has seen
its blood run red at "Calumet, Paint
Creek, Ludlow and other places' from
the work of "wicked little field
"AND WALL STREET." In print
ing the words from the sign of the
Woman's" Peace party, torn down by
the police during the preparedness
parade, the Tribune got it all straight
and proper and correct except for
three words! These three words were
left out, There were 42 words in all
on the sign. And the Tribune print-
39 and left out three. Those three
words were "and Wall street." It
was the aim of the Woman's Peace
party to tell the marchers that farm
ers, miners and organized labor "are
against what you (the marchers)
and Wall street are marching for."
And at the top of its story the Tri
bune put the word "Treason."
OUR GREATEST NEWSPAPER.
Tribunenews reports of the pre
paredness parade said:
"Not in the entire line was there
the slightest thing to indicate any
suspicion of advertising effect."
This would be true if the Chicago
Telephone Co. hadn't stuck a ,big
banner advertising itselfand the Bell
phone monopoly right alongside its.
brass band. Also it happened the
Chi. TeL Co. band made more than
one trip leading division the whole
length of the line of march. Each
time the advertising banner was car
ried. Any small concern trying to do
this would have been choked off in
a hurry.. 'The Bell phone trust, with'
its nead men on the parade commit
tees and spendingmuctf easy money
for advertising irX'the newspapers,
was able to get away with it
