PRAVDA HITS TUC
LEADERS AS AIDS
TO CHAMBERLAIN
Join War Against USSR
Says Moscow Daily
BOSCOW, June ‘JO.—Commenting
on the attempts of the right wing
British labor leaders to smash the
Anglo-Russian Committee, the Pravda
says:
"The treachery that is being com
mitted by the General Council lead
ers is in the eyes of the workers of
the world more disgraceful than the
treachery of the Second International
in August, 1914.
“Then social democracy followed in
the trail of the imperialists the day
after the declaration of the imperial
ist war; today the social democrats
•re helping the imperialists prepare
war.
MacDonalds Prepare War.
“They are openly and consciously
engaged in the work of surrounding
the Soviet Union and isolating the U.
S. S. E. from the world proletariat.
However, the franker and more open
their alliance with the bourgeoisie be
comes the earlier and the more com
pletely will they be exposed in the
eyes of the workers.”
Trud, the official organ of the All-
Union Central Council of Trade
Unions, in referring to the treachery
of the right wing leaders of the Bri-1
tish Trade Union Congress says;
Flunkeys of Imperialism.
“In preparing the death of the
Anglo-Russian Committee members of
the General Council expose them
selves in the eyes of the workers of
England, the Soviet Union and the
whole world as the flunkeys of Bri- .
tish imperialism, sabotaging prole
tarian unity.
“The British working class will
know how to estimate the treachery:
of the General Council. The bonds
of solidarity uniting the workers of j
England and the Soviet Union cannot
be tom asunder by any machination
of their cowardly leaders.
“The dissolution of the Anglo-
Russian Committee would entail the
weakening of the international prole
tariat and the strengthening of the
enemies of the working class.

Capture Polish Spy.
MOSCOW', June 30.—Mme. Vish
nevskaya, a notorious Polish woman
spy who has been active since 1921,
has been captured at Tcharkov. After :
a court trial, at which she was found
guilty of spying and instigating re
volts, she was executed.
Shoe Workers Strike
Against Scab System
ot Unity Slave Pen!
Workers employed by the Unity j
Shoe Manufacturing Company of 2504
Pacific street, Brooklyn, are on strike
for recognition of their union. The
shop crew is organized 100 per cent
in the Shoe Workers Protective
Union, but the efforts to maintain
union conditions in the slave pen re
sulted in the discharge of 22 men und j
women. This was the cause of the |
strike which has been in progress 1
since Tuesday morning.
Drive Against Union.
For months the employers in the;
shoe industry of Brooklyn have been 1 ]
waging a drive against the union in an j (
effort to break it so they can have aj (
free hand in wage-cutting and de- (
stroying conditions that the workers
have fought to establish for many
years. The present condition of the J
industry is due to the fact that it is j
for the most part disorganized and
all shoe workers who havo had any
trade union experience realise that
they must build up their union in (
order to smash the offensive of the j
bosses.

Labor Fakers Fight Workers’ Health
Proposals at Cleveland Convention
CLEVELAND, June 27. (By Mail). —The Workers’ Health
Bureau held its first national conference in this city June 18 and
1 19 at the Winton Hotel with delegates representing trade union
j locals all over the country.
The findings of the W. H. B. covering an extensive period of
investigation brings out the terrible fatalities and the injuries to
health and limb, in industry, particularly in such work as building
construction, painting, mining and electrical construction.
Fakers Fight Resolution.
| Some of the officials of the Ohio
: State Federation seemed anxious to
minimize the dangers of industrial ac
cidents, and also to feel that the
trade unions could take care of their j
own affairs without the aid of out
side agencies like the W. H. B. Be-|
cause there are a few laws operating
;in the state of Ohio, they seemed to,
! feel that a federal code and federal'
legislation would be unnecessary and
j a duplication of work. When the mo
tion was made to accept in full the
report and statement of the Workers’
Health Bureau, and their recommen-.
i ciations regarding industrial codes !
• and standards, Mr. Donnelly, secre
tary of the Ohio Federation of Labor, !
got to his feet and after considerable j
j hedging and mincing, he finally came
! forth with the opinion that the dele
gates could not pass this motion,
I first because they needed time to con- 1
! sidor it, second, because he did not j
feel that the delegates could accept;
the responsibility for their respective
unions to pass suchoa motion. It was !
a curious thing to listen to, in that
trade union delegation of men and
women who had come there for the
express purpose of getting some facts
and some light on the terrible condi
tions existing in industry and to for
mulate plans for their own protection
and for the protection of the workers
in all trades.
Dennis Batt of the Detroit tnachin- [
ists supported Donnelly declaring that
he also believed that the delegates did
not have the right to take the respon-;
sibility of accepting the statement and
the recommendations for trade union
action. It sounded as crude and un
convincing as the remarks of his lead
er, Donnelly.
Donnelly had almost tire entire dele
gation against his weird interpreta
tion of the motion. After some de- j
bate, James Maurer, president of the j
Pennsylvania Federation of Labor,
callad upon tho opposition to lay their j
cards on the table and come out with 1
the stuff. He declared himself fully
in accord with the motion, but he ]
said that for the sake of unity, a sub
stitute motion could be and should be
passed which would substantially em
body the original motion and at the :
same time give Mr. Donnelly and his
cohorts no cause for complaint. The]
change in the motion was slight; the
substitute after some debate was un
animously accepted and the meeting
was adjourned, all feeling that some
thing concrete had been accomplished !
in furthering a movement for the pro
, taction of the job.
2,500,000 Injured A Year.
The investigations and reports of
the bureau covers an immense area
1 giving facts and statistics in nil the
: states, citing the laws relative to the
1 protection of labor, the number of ac
! cidents fatal and otherwise, their
causes and remedies,
j Following are some of the startling
facts of industrial accidents which the
W. H. B. seeks to control thru trade
standards and legislation.
! 2,500,000 are injured or crippled
i every year in injury thru preventible
| accidents. 35,000 are killed outright
(every year thru pr.vcntible accidents,
j The majority of these accidents occur
j in building trades and mining. These
! accidents are rarely recorded. Occu
pational diseases also attack great
j numbers, particularly women and j
children. There is little legislature
relating to standards and codes for
. the protection of labor on the job, j
and that which exists is far from
! adequate and not always enforced.
Negro Pupils Banned
From Jersey Schools
Ordered Reinstated
TRENTON, N. J., June 30.—Thirty
! Negro children wlto were removed
! from schools in Toms River by the
j Dover Board of Education and segre
gated in a school by themselves under 1
! a colored teacher, have been ordered j
| by Dr. John Logan, State Commis- I
I sioner of Education, to be reinstated !
in the Dover Township schools “until ;
[ such time as the contract between the
; Dover Board and the Berkeley Board
terminates.”
The contract referred to, however,
[terminated on June Ist, and Negro
: residents of Dover and Berkeley
; Townships, Ocean County, fear they i
| have won an empty victory, as it may
j not he renewed for next year.
The colored children had been segre
: gated on the pretense that they were
1 from 1 to 3 years below normal, un- 1
i.ruljr and insubordinate, but the fact
\ that all of the transferred children
[ were colored and that no proof had
j been submitted that the other charac
| teristics attributed to them were pe
-1 culiar to them and were not shared by
! any of the white children, was con- :
sidered by the Commissioner to “raise [
the presumption that color is the
peculiar characteristic constituting
I the basis of exclusion.”

Salesman Arrested.
An interesting sidelight is the fact
I that one of those who were arraigned
with the strikers, was a bond sales
; man named Victor Kromar. He was
dragged into the police net when
| they were making wholesale arrests
1 in the fur market.
At the opening of court Mandel
baum asked the judge for a post
ponement on the ground that Mag
istrate Ewald is biased against the
defendants. He cited the procedure
before the court Wednesday in sup
port of his contention. Ewald re
fused to postpone the cases and allow
another magistrate to try them.
Ewald showed his viciousness im
; mediately afterwards. The bail of
one of the defendants was forfeited
because he was not in court on time,
and a bench warrant issued for his
; niTest. A request by Mandelbaum
j that he be given until today to pro
j duce the worker was curtly refused
| by the magistrate.
Right Wing Gangsters Released.
The seven right wing gangsters
j who last Friday morning brutally cut
j up four fur pickets were released yes

them have prison records. When
questioned by the police at the time
of their arrest they admitted that
they were hired to do their dastardly
deeds by the right wing Internationa!
officialdom. The workers who were
cut up are James Metexas, Frank
Weiss, Stephen Sergadian and
Harry Steinhart.

PITTSBURGH, (FP) June 30.
| Pestilence is the latest recruit the

City water, piped to points near

j officials.
State health officers have for
warded a report of their findings to

ASK FIFTY MILLION CO-OPERATORS
TO HELP FIGHT IMPERIALIST WAR
(Special Cable To The DAILY WORKER.)
MOSCOW. June 30.—July 2nd has been fixed as Cooperation
pay by the Executive Committee of the Communist International
1 in an appeal issued to workers' and pea?ants’ cooperatives thru-
out the world.
That appeal states that on Co- j
; operation Day co-operators of all j
' countries should make a strenuous
I effort to strengthen their movement.
' The appeal declares that unless the
co-operative movement is strength
ened so that it becomes an integral
part of the labor movement it will
jbe unable to resist the attacks of 1
: the capitalist class.
Asks United Action,
j Only the united action of ail forces i
jof labor, including the co-operatives, j
| can battle against the offensive of!
capitalism against the workers ami
| the peasants of the world. The de
! mand for the accord between the co
operatives and the labor movement
on the basis of class solidarity is:
! more urgent than ever in the face of !
I the impending imperialist war.
50,000,000 Co-operators.
Eighty-five thousand co-operatives,
claiming a membership of fifty mil- j
lion members co-ordinated in the. co
operative international from a power
ful mast organization whose strength
j must be used to defend the workers j
j and peasants against all forms of ex-1
j ploitation and against the menaee of
war.
The appeal concludes: “Make Co
operators Day a powerful deinonstra-1
tion against the war mongers. De
clare your solidarity with the first
. workers’ republic. Declare for a
united front against capitalism.
Help the liberation struggle in China.
; Let every co-operative, every section
of the co-operative movement he a■,
weapon in the hands of the working
class. LcJ the co-operative move
; ment be a part oi' the united front j
against capitalism Reject the deccp
[ tive pacifist slogans.
"Long live the international prole

movement, the weapon of class strug
' gie for the emancipation of the work
ers of the world!”
